I Love Lucy was a major part of my childhood and early writing life. Now through a sitcom-style twist of fate, I admire Lucille Ball’s courageous performances and groundbreaking career from my home in the heart of Lucy-land, just blocks from the old Desilu Studios.

I have deep ties to Lucy and owe her a lot, like so many writers, producers, and comediennes.

But I’m also a modern woman. And sometimes I’m just like what… the fuck.

So join me for weekly satire of every single episode of I Love Lucy, starting with episode one. We’ll learn, we’ll laugh, and we’ll be like WTF Lucy?
