Description by

Life is a piece of wedding cake for Judge Stevens (Jim Backus) and his scatterbrained wife Joan (Joan Davis) in these hilarious episodes of "I Married Joan!" CBS had Lucy, but NBC had Joan Davis and her wonderful brand of physical, knock-about comedy from 1952 to 1953. Each week, kindly Judge Bradley Stevens counsels folks in domestic court by using examples from his own married life. Joan Davis, a comedic veteran of vaudeville and a long career in films, brings her inimitable comic timing and charm to each of their wonderful misadventures!

Talent Scout: Joan gets suckered by two phony "Hollywood" talent agents and the judge lets her get taken - all the way to the set of a TV show, as bait to catch them red-handed!

Bad Boy: The Stevens get a crash course in parenting when they take a juvenile delinquent into their home for a week!

Honey-Moon: Judge Stevens relates his own disastrous honeymoon to a couple contemplating divorce!

Neighbors: Joan takes matters into her own hands when partying neighbors keep her up all night!

Sister Pat: Joan's teenage sister moves in and takes over the house, so Bradley gets even by inviting all of his cousins over - as many as he can afford to hire, that is!

Rating 4.5 Retro TV at it's Finest! Movie Lover: from mount dandenong, Victoria AU -- March, 18, 2008

Really enjoyable 50's sitcom featuring the delightful Joan Davis and Jim Backus. The writing is uneven, But it's still very enjoyable. If you love "I Love Lucy", you might enjoy this show.
