Episode Watch Party S01 E12: “The Adagio”

Satirical commentary of I Love Lucy every Friday! Here’s the info to watch ahead, plus all the WTFacts for this week. 

This Week’s Episode:

“The Adagio”

Original Air Date:

December 31, 1951

This Week’s WTFacts:

Apache Dance

  • Last week’s episode aired on Christmas Eve. The week’s episode aired on New Year’s Eve. People in 1951 were party animals.
  • The title of this episode makes absolutely no sense. Don’t even try to make sense of it. It’s as absurd as French performance art, which would probably have been a much better title
  • Perhaps the title came from the Adagio Dancers, a famous 1930s Apache dance troupe.

Oh, you say? You don’t know what La Danse Apache is? FWIW, it’s basically a racist rape ballet. Here’s a clip.

Friday’s gonna be fun. 

See you Friday!
