(Ep. 112) I Love Lucy Travel
Dec 21, 2020 Season 3 Episode 8
Ryan & Cheryl

For Winter Break, we decided to binge some classic TV! We watch a lot of episodes from season five of I Love Lucy, where they travel to Europe. Turns out they didn’t actually travel to Europe to shoot these episodes, but they are fun to watch! 


Elements of Travel Represented: 

  • Ep 11 - Lucy struggles to get a passport 
  • Ep 12 - Lucy gets a passport at the passport office...but there’s no one there! 
  • Ep 18 - Paris at last 
    • Travel as a local vs a tourist/tour group 
    • Language a major factor of the plot 
    • Does represent real situation with having to communicate through languages they don’t speak natively 
  • Interesting cultural shifts since then: 
    • Jokes about Ethel’s weight, even though she’s not fat 
    • Women seem to be ashamed of their age  
    • Flying vs boating to Europe 




Wish You Were Here - Christmas Suggestions

Cheryl: Drive around looking at Christmas Lights!  

Ryan: Watch Christmas movies!
