"It's I Love Lucy's fourth season, and it's the best one yet! Ride along with the Ricardos and the Mertzes as they head out to Hollywood to launch Ricky's movie career in this laugh-filled five-disc collection. Lucy runs the gamut - from faux Marilyn Monroe ('Ricky's Movie Offer' to TV-hostess-in-a-potato-sack ('Mr. & Mrs. TV Show'). In Hollywood, our favorite redhead sets fire to her nose ("L.A. at Last"), struggles in her big movie scene and bigger headdress ('Lucy Gets in Pictures'), dangles from a movie star's penthouse balcony ('The Star Upstairs') and even goes one-on-one with one of the Marx Brothers ('Harpo Marx'). Come on and join in all the fun, along with guest stars William Holden, Van Johnson, Rock Hudson, Richard Widmark, Harpo Marx, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Teensy & Weensy - and many more!"--Container.

Well! Watching these episodes in order certainly brought some clarity to memories of episodes I first watched as a little kid. I didn't realize Lucy and Ricky's time in Hollywood would be the main focus of the season.

I only knew two-and-a-half-ish of the big movie stars who make cameo appearances here. And it was my first time seeing/hearing Harpo Marx actually play the harp, but it was great! I replayed that scene maybe five or six times.

William Holden, Harpo Marx, John Wayne, etc., etc... William Asher, director, later directed BEWITCHED, and married Elizabeth Montgomery.

The queen below gives a 1/2-star rating. She must be a total b*tch. Totally.

To date, I have now seen every single episode from all 6 seasons of the "I Love Lucy" TV show from the 1950s. And, by far, I rate Season 4 as being the absolute best season of them all.

In fact, I'd quite confidently say that when it came to the show's superiority in the realm of its hilarious scriptwriting, Season 4 was, without question, the ultimate peak of Sit-Com perfection.

It was especially when the Ricardos and the Mertzes arrived in Hollywood, USA that this show's scriptwriters proved themselves to be at the absolute pinnacle of their craft by creating incomparably uproarious situations for Lucille Ball and her fellow cast members to indulge themselves in.

This review of mine is my respectful tribute to writers Bob Carroll Jr., Madelyn Pugh, and Jess Oppenheimer who, as a team, surely must have worked like fiends behind the scenes as they wrote one memorable episode of priceless, 1950's comedy after another.

I would also like to take this moment to salute and pay honour to director William Asher who was the one responsible for knowing exactly how to handle the script-material given to him and then mould the actors perfectly into the characters which they inevitably became. Even today, 60 years later, the "I Love Lucy" show still remains, on all levels, one of the most unique and unforgettable programs in all of television history, bar none.
