I would rather a show die in glory than sink to a series of crap.

Nah like me he was probably only 2-3 years old when that happened. It was already in daily reruns in my earliest memories of TV.

Found it...

Quote:
The last episodes of the series had to be made, even though Ball and Arnaz were divorcing/divorced. A contract had been signed before the two began to have major problems, and it wasn't lifted. This is why in the last episodes of the series, one can see Ball looking as if she had just been crying, even in supposed-to-be funny skits.
It must be b/c they actually got divorced.

I must have watched reruns when I was a kid because I remember the show. The movie Pretty Woman immortalized the grape stomping scene from one of the shows.

Such a good show. We need more channels that play the greats. Lucy, Happy Days... and such.
