The whole dead-actors-endorsing-vacuum-cleaners-thing totally freaks me out, but I am a nut for anything involving classic old-time celebrities, particularly my personal hero Lucille Ball. I went through a brief phase (if eight years counts as brief) where I watched I Love Lucy twice a day, and bought everything Lucy related (biographies, postcards, coffee-table books, VHS-copies of The Mambo Kings) that I could get my grubby little hands on. I still worship Lucy, but haven't watched the show in years, sadly. You know, so I can watch quality tv—like crappy reality shows.

The best episode is when Lucy dresses us up as a fake spanish flameno dancer to be in Ricky's show. They make her dance (Ricky knows it's Lucy) on stage in front of everyone and the music gets faster and faster and faster. glorious!

Cheers Lucy!

My faves are the Vitameatavegamin episode (classic for a reason!), the Hollywood/Brown Derby episode with William Holden (both the Brown Derby scene and the nose on fire are priceless) and the episode where Lucy pretends to have died and climbs on the fire escape to hear Ricky, Fred and Ethel mourn her. Ahh, Lucy, I miss you so.
