About this Episode

In this week's episode, the hosts discuss the episode that was inspired by the pilot episode of 'I Love Lucy', 'The Audition'. They discuss the differences and similarities between the pilot and this episode as it is also inspired by the radio episode of My Favorite Husband. There are so many outdated thoughts that are touched upon such as the place of a man and a woman, the lack of encouragement from the husband to his wife to try something new and how this show's premise was used as the Arnaz' vaudevillian roadshow.
They discuss how long it took for Lucille Ball to learn the routine performed in this episode and how greatly her physical comedy came alive!
