Episode 49: I'm Who Mi! You're Hey Yu!
We’re joined by our new friend of the show Johanna to discuss The Golden Palace episode 4, “One old lady to go” where Sophia starts selling Chinese take out, featuring Margaret Cho. As an Asian American, Johanna adds her views on Asian representation as it pertains to The Golden Palace, but specifically this episode as it is the only time in Golden Girls or Golden Palace where the entire episode centers around Asians & as usual they fall into many tropes that today may be seen as problematic.

Episode 27: Well isn't Danny Thomas one??
In honor of Pride Weekend we reviewed one of the most iconic Golden Girls Episodes, Season 2, Episode 5: “Isn’t it Romantic”. We’re joined by Matt, an Ok Petunia from one of our country’s the Gay Mecca’s as we breakdown the episode where Dorothy’s Lesbian friend Jean comes to visit & ends up having “the hots for Rose”. This is marked one of the first television portrayals of an openly Lesbian character on TV & possibly the first in a sitcom. At the time Gay Marriage was still illegal & would remain so for another 29 years. While the actress Lois Nettles was not a Lesbian, this was a rare moment (even today) where an LGBTQIA person was portrayed as “just another regular person” & not just a stereotype, because we are just regular people!

Empty Nest originally started as a failed backdoor pilot on The Golden Girls & would get revamped to focus on the girl’s Widowed Doctor neighbor Harry Weston & his two daughters who move back home after their mom dies. The show lasted for 7 seasons & in the final 2 seasons would add Sophia as a main character after Golden Palace ended.

Via our Twitter we asked our listeners to pose some burning questions they have about the show for us to speak on. This also happened to be our first time recording in person so much of the episode is us laughing uncontrollably. So either you will feel like you're at the table eating cheesecake with old friends or we sound like Dorothy hit us too hard over the head with the newspaper. Either way, enjoy! Let us know if you want to hear more segments like this via Twitter!

Throughout the series starting with the pilot & even on it's Spin Off (The Golden Palace), The Golden Girls has made it seem as if it's normal or expected for men to cheat. Despite them all being very strong & independent women, this is one area where they all seemed to default to a more nonchalant response to something so serious.
