Lucy vs DesiEdit

It is kind of funny/sad that many Americans believe Lucy was the brains behind Desilu Productions. To read Desi Arnaz's accomplishments at Wikipedia just begins to give you a flavor of the man - Lucy and Desi were full partners in fighting to get I Love Lucy off the ground. During its run, Desi pioneered many staples of television shows to include live audiences, multiple cameras (multicamera setups) and development of reruns. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ronbo76 (talk • contribs).

Production TechniquesEdit

This page slightly misstates something. The techniques Desi Arnaz pioneered for I Love Lucy were a separate issue from Star Trek's production. Certainly they helped build the studio up and let them produce all sort of high quality shows, but Star Trek wasn't produced in a manner much different from other 1 camera dramas of the period. I'm not changing it because I'm not sure how big a deal this is or if I read the entry differently than others would. Lt. Washburn 11:29, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

I absolutely concur. The three-camera innovation, while a brilliant innovation, was neither wholly his invention nor anything to do with Star Trek. In fact, given that Lucy bought out Desi in 1961, Desi himself was nothing to do with Star Trek. CzechOut | 01:36, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Andy Griffith sets? Edit

The article suggests that the sets of The Andy Griffith Show were used in Star Trek. Can anyone verify this? If this is correct, which episodes used the Mayberry sets? —Josiah Rowe 02:33, September 9, 2010 (UTC)
