Tribute to the greatest show of all time!
5 December 2001 | by thien314See all my reviews

The I Love Lucy 50th Anniversary Special was a special presentation to show a tribute to the greatest and best show of all time. This special showed many attributes to Desi Arnaz and how he was a very important role in the start of I Love Lucy. Lucille Ball was not mentioned as wonderfully as she is usually considered, which is a shame. Considering that she is the main star of the show and the best comedienne of all time, she wasn't approached the way I would have hoped. The special does a great job with celebrities appearing and showing their gratitude toward Lucille Ball. Vivian Vance and William Frawley were not mentioned as much as I would have anticipated. The ending of the special is very touching and sentimental to I Love Lucy lovers and leaves a life-long imprint of how special the show really is.
