I remember watching this show in its original run as a kid and liking it, so when I saw it was available on Amazon Prime, decided to binge-watch it.
Overall, pretty good writing, which you can tell is mostly from Lucy's writers. More than a few episodes fall short, especially in the second season, but even in those episodes, Kaye Ballard and Eve Arden's performances are worth the time to watch.
The episode that sticks out to me is from season 2, "Show Business Is No Business," with guest star Don Rickles. He has a monologue at one point and appears to be adlibbing both lines and gestures. I've watched the scene several times now for his performance and to watch Kaye and Eve try not to break character.
Thanks Amazon Prime for making it available!
