“LIFE WITH LUCY: THE COM­PLETE SE­RIES”

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

Lu­cille Ball had the gift of rein­vent­ing her­self – while still play­ing es­sen­tially the same char­ac­ter – in a num­ber of tele­vi­sion sit­coms, and this Aaron Spelling-pro­duced ven­ture was her last at­tempt. She plays a wi­dow try­ing to con­tinue the oper­a­tion of her late hus­band’s hard­ware store, teamed un­com­fort­ably with his busi­ness part­ner (played by vet­eran Lucy foil Gale Gor­don). Complicati­ng mat­ters: the mar­riage of her daugh­ter (Ann Dusen­berry) to his son (Larry An­der­son). In an early episode, avowed Lucy devo­tee John Ritter ap­peared as him­self; guest stars also in­cluded Peter Graves, who had starred in “Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble” for Ball’s De­silu com­pany, and Kel­lie Martin. ABC can­celed this se­ries be­fore all 13 pro­duced episodes aired, and

this set in­cludes the five that didn’t. (Not rated)
