I was at my gym a while ago, on the lower level working out. When I walked upstairs I noticed everyone was looking at the TVs and laughing — I wondered what was on TV that was so hilarious.

Turns out it was an old I Love Lucy episode - still funny after so many years — without all the sexual angst, depression, stupidness and unreal situations that mark so many TV programs these days.

I Love Lucy was certainly unreal. But it was a good sort of unreality that allowed you to accept the unreal set-up that lead to the comedy. And the comedy was GOOD.

There was nothing real about the heaps of chocolates pouring out of the system that needed to be individually wrapped by hand, but that was SUCH an iconic episode.

The 'Lucy' show had one of the best lines ever in the history of television:

"...and they call ME Superman..." Cracks me up every time I see that clip.

I Love Lucy, frankly, even as a kid born in 1983, I think it’s funny, and frankly innocent in its scope too. I mean, in the show, a married couple doesn’t even share a bed, and I believe the lead actor/actress were also married in real life too. I found it interesting, and frankly a stark contrast to what constitutes entertainment now: naked people, sex, and political issue obssession. Even films about the past time periods seem to be biased towards the liberalism of the 2000s.

I watch re-runs of The Honeymooners and have the same reaction. Just good, funny entertainment!
