From its 1951 premiere to the present day, I Love Lucy has never been off the air! You’ll see why in this hilarious five-disc DVD collection, containing the show’s entire second season. Laugh out loud at such gems as “Job Switching”—in which Lucy and Ethel do unforgettable battle with a chocolate factory conveyor belt; “ The Handcuffs”—in which Lucy cuffs herself to Ricky and then loses the key; and “The Operetta”—in which Lucy’s money problems bring down the curtain on her role as “Queen of the Gypsies.” This collection also includes the groundbreaking “pregnancy shows,” including the touching moment at the Tropicana when Lucy breaks the news to Ricky that they are going to have a baby; and “Lucy Goes to the Hospital”—the record-setting episode that garnered the highest rating in the history of television!
Season 2 of I Love Lucy includes two of the most famous half-hours in television history. "Job Switching," originally broadcast mid-September of 1952, is the crazy, battle-of-the-sexes episode in which husbands Ricky Ricardo Desi Arnaz and Fred Mertz William Frawley trade roles with wives Lucy Lucille Ball and Ethel Vivian Vance, culminating in the men making a shambles of domestic chores while Lucy and Ethel take disastrous work at a chocolate factory. That's right: This is the show where the ladies have a Chaplinesque experience with a too-fast factory conveyor belt, forcing them to hide candies in their mouths, in their hats, and down their blouses lest a tough forewoman fire them for incompetence. A half-century later, the scene is still so fresh and funny it would grace any current sitcom. "Lucy Goes to the Hospital," which received an amazing 71.7 rating on January 19, 1953, is the historic episode featuring the birth of Little Ricky and a load of wonderful slapstick. Other television series The Dick Van Dyke Show and movies Nine Months have tried to top Lucy's time-to-go-to-the-hospital shenanigans, but there's nothing like the sight of Ricky and Fred falling all over themselves or Ricky showing up at the maternity ward direct from a voodoo-themed show at the Tropicana in witch doctor makeup.

The other 31 episodes included in I Love Lucy: The Compete Second Season have choice moments, too. "Lucy Becomes a Sculptress" finds the ever-ambitious redhead falling for empty flattery at an art-supply store and commencing an ill-advised career working in clay. Ricky agrees to bless this new endeavor if an art critic says she has talent, but Lucy tries to increase her chances by posing as a bust of herself--resulting in mayhem, of course. The usual running themes in I Love Lucy--Lucy's misguided desire to be a part of Ricky's musical career, and her penchant for disguising herself to investigate something--are all over The Complete Second Season. "Ricky Loses His Voice" is a delightful piece in which Ricky's laryngitis inspires Lucy, the Mertzes, and an aging chorus line to put on a Tropicana spectacle, and "Ricky Has Labor Pains" finds Lucy and Ethel going undercover as male reporters to find out what happens at a stag party. Lots to enjoy here, and the special features include bloopers, information about the guest cast, and snippets from Ball's radio show. --Tom Keogh
