The "I Love Lucy" series began five years before my parents ever bought a television. I was married with my first baby before I started seeing some of those shows, as reruns, for the first time.
I don't imagine the younger generation can relate to Lucy, but she lived in the world in which I grew up. Back when men "laid down the law" and the women figured out ways to get around that stupidity.
Tonight I couldn't find a single thing to watch on TV until I flipped channels and found "I Love Lucy". By now I'm so familiar with all the shows, I can multi-task, talk on the phone, surf the Internet, and still know exactly what's going on, with any episode.
I will go to my grave loving Lucy.
