The first person to successfully answer last week's trivia question was our good My Space Fan Page friend Brian, who has become the Kovacs trivia master. To see the question and the answer click the link. The answer is in the comments section so once you read the question scroll all the way down. I'd also like to congratulate our good My Space friend Barbara who sent in her answer after Brian but also got it correct.
The Ernie My Space is up to 413 friends this week, an increase of 5 from last week. We thank everyone who requested an add or accepted a request from us.
And now for this week's trivia question. Have a look at the photo below:
1. What was the title of the episode that Ernie and Edie appeared in?
2. What was the plot of the episode?
3. Where is it that the Riccardo and Kovacs families live (city and state)?
4. What was the original air date of this episode?
5. Did Ernie's daughters appear on the program?
6. What is the significance of this episode in terms of the careers of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz and in terms of the running order of episodes? What number episode is it in the series?
7. At one point in the episode Lucy stops by to visit Edie. Edie opens the refrigerator to show Lucy something. What is taking up the ENTIRE fridge?
FOR EXTRA CREDIT: Who was the program's sponsor?
This is a tough one folks but I know you can do it. I'll level with you; this is not an easy show to find. I've seen it at the Museum of TV and Radio and on TV Land; when they aired it I taped a VHS copy. The entire series was supposed to come out on DVD this year but has not yet and the VHS tapes of individual episodes are hard to come by. I know, however, that many of you have probably seen this episode. You can research most of these questions online and in Ernie biographies.
I didn't find any new blog posts or news clips this week, so until next week, "Its Been Real!!"
ED NOTE, 11/30/2010: The entire series has been available on DVD for a while now and you can get it from Amazon.
