Louise, why don't you time-travel back to the 1950's and become Ricky's wife/maid/sex slave?
And face his terrible temper when you do the slightest thing that he doesn't approve and have him flapping his gums in Spanish at you?
Why don't you live in terror of him day after day, fearing he'd kill you if you bought a new hat?
That's what I like about Ethel; she wasn't afraid of her husband and put him in his place whenever the situation warranted it.
I often wished that she would finally leave him, but then, she had no marketable skills to survive on her own (she had a beautiful singing voice, but at her advanced age, her chances of employment in music was slim to none), and you know that skinflint Fred would never pay alimony, even if he was sent to jail.
well, talking about the kid, where was he half the time as a baby as soon as he was born? asleep. convenient. then they went to first california and then Europe!
and right after he was born, lucy resumes her antics... from auditioning for a jitterbug dance to the famous old fashioned salad dressing to writing the novel! then comes the goddamn movie in season 4! and lucy, ethyl and fred [don't they have a building to maintain and run?] have to go too! then in season 5 they are still in california! then when they come home they have a whole two weeks before little ricky starts preschool! how much time and bonding they lost! then the very next week, talk about Europe! fuck me! this poor kid has no parents! then when she is in Italy [srsly, how did they get by in all these countries with only one of them speaking one other language?] she suddenly remembers she farted out a kid and misses him! of course it is on the poor kid's birthday! srsly!
and what a bum ricky was!! lucy ends up meeting her mother in law for the first time a year and a half after she has the woman's grandson! and keep in mind they were married for like 9 years before little ricky came! so that is a decade or more! what the fuck is that about?
