Re: Being the Ricardos

I have been watching the film. I find it interesting that they chose to use the wrong set for the stories they were portraying. In the series the Ricardo's were in the smaller apartment when Lucy became pregnant.  They were in the old set when they did the fire bit and when Fred and Ethel sat on the piano bench. 

I enjoyed what I have seen so far.

I believe it was about a construction firewall, but now I can't remember the context. They used the term "showrunner" which I believe is a fairly recent term (1990s or later) and at least one other bit of language that didn't seem contemporary. But with any historical fiction I guess you have to give some leniency to make connections with modern audiences.

Was it referenced as a firewall used in building construction?

I enjoyed the movle immensely being a huge Lucy fan but I noticed (I think two small errors, please corect me if I'm wrong).

1) At some point someone (I think Lucy??) said that filming it meant that viewers on the East Coast didn't have to see a blurry kinescope. Unless I'm mistaken, the East coast saw most shows live and the kinescope was aired on the West coast. Maybe I head that line wrong.

2) She used the word firewall and after checking it seems the word was a computer terms that didn't come into existence until the 90;s.

FWIW..still thought it was lots of fun.
