Buzzerguy: Lucy's pregnancy (a first for TV)

OK, I'm a middle-aged manly guy but "We're Having a Baby, My Baby and Me" makes me cry every time.

jaytkay: Buzzerguy: Lucy's pregnancy (a first for TV)

OK, I'm a middle-aged manly guy but "We're Having a Baby, My Baby and Me" makes me cry every time. should! There is more genuine emotion in that five minutes than in any reality crapola show of today. Especially if you understand that before she had Lucie and Desi Jr, Lucy had had a terrible history of miscarriages...

pjlawrence81: Elizabeth "Samantha" Mongomery vs. Barbara "Jeannie" Eden in their primes. Debate, farkers.

Throw in Julie Newmar and you have a deal.

cleveoh: You younger Farkers may will want to Google the European version of Miss Montgomery's "Lizzie Borden " movie.

Mmmmmm.... crazy eyes...

/as for Asher... he had two stints on I Love Lucy... a long stretch from season 2 until season 5, IIRC, then he came back about midway through the final season to close out the show. And, he was co-creator of the Patty Duke Show, and executive producer of Bewitched. He dominated the 50s and 60s being involved with some of the most popular shows.

...and he was nailing Elizabeth Montgomery in her prime.

Hero, indeed.
