Is Password still on the air? Possibly in syndication or on the Game Show Network? I don’t know. But even if it’s not now, I suspect at some point it will be revived in some form or fashion. After all, the premise is simple, and sooner or later some TV exec will decide it’s a brand worth recycling.
Anyway, I’m not going to spend a lot of time introducing this episode. Like I said, even if you’ve never seen an episode, you’ve either seen something familiar, or will pretty immediately pick up on the premise. This particular episode first aired on May 7, 1964, and features not only Lucille Ball, but her then-husband Gary Morton and her two children, Desi Arnaz Jr, who was 11 at the time, and Lucie Arnaz, who was 12.
