Lucy! I’m home! An iconic phrase. And one that has become the calling card of a sitcom that changed the face of comedy on television, and television itself for that matter. With the one hundredth anniversary of Lucille Ball‘s birthday this past weekend, it seems only fitting that we celebrate her iconic sitcom, I Love Lucy. There are very few shows that I look back on and say “man, I wish I was around when that was in the zeitgeist (then again, I never use the word zeitgeist, ever).” But I Love Lucy is a completely different beast. This is a show that I was lucky enough to get into as a child thanks to Nick at Night, and stick with because of its appeal.
