Default Jeopardy!

When Dorothy goes to audition for Jeopardy and the dream sequence it entails. I did not like this episode at all.

The episode where Dorothy has an affair with a married man. We are supposed to root for the GG, but coudn't in this one.

The episode where Rose, Dorothy, Blanche face their fears. This is one that sounded better on paper.

The episode where Sophia buys a Cuban boxer. This one you knew was going to be bad just from the description.

"Little Sister" is the episode I hate more than any other. It was just not good at all, with the girls not believing Rose and taking her sisters side over her. Not a good episode at all.

"Empty Nest" was another one I didn't care for. I agree with the poster above that said they want to see the girls and not their neighbors.

I completely forgot about the "Little Sister" episode. I hate that one for the same reason mentioned and there aren't that many episodes that I outright hate. There is a difference between hating an episode and being bored by an episode.

The Mickey Rooney episode wasn't great but I can't say I hated it. The diary part of the episode was kinda silly though.

The one with Blanche's verbally abusive boyfriend.NOBODY(Man or Woman) should be talked to like that.

In the episode with Blanche's verbally abusive boyfriend, the second plot where Rose & Miles try to spice up their relationship is funny.

There are several episodes where the second plot overshadows the main plot.

It's the same scenario in the episode with Blanche's overweight daughter Rebecca which was very mean-spirited. The second plot with Sophia challenging her teen boss is funny.

Yes,I agree.I forgot to add :The subplot was ,indeed funny.And you're right.That subplot DID overshadow the main plot;which WASN'T very good,(but Blanche DID see the light,when her verbally abusive boyfriend tried to do the same thing verbally abusing Dorothy,who REALLY gave him what for)

My favorite single moment on Golden Girls is the look on Sophia's face when she answers the door and sees Rebecca. That and Rose's, "Sorry, we just didn't think you'd be so fat." part.

And I didn't care for any of the flashback episodes(although the one segment in one rather boring flashback episode about cakes,where Rose takes Dorothy to see "Mr.HaHa,the clown",WAS funny.When Dorothy is going to throw a cream pie at Mr.Ha Ha ,Mr.Ha Ha warns her that the bandleader's cousin is Mr.Lawyer,and says "Besides it's not the adult thing to do"Dorothy doesn't do it.Then a little 6-year old boy DOES-by hitting Mr.HaHa in the face with a cream pie.He then says "Happy Birthday,Dorothy".Dorothy smiles.This ,as I said,was the bright spot in a rather dull and boring flashback episode.about cakes.ANOTHER not very good flashback episode was when the President came to visit.The ONLY really good part about the episode,was when the President (voice only)came to call,and Dorothy,all set to tell him about the education problem,got a case of stage fright the end).

I agree with you there, Dianne. Many episodes were saved by an excellent b plot.

As for episodes I hate, I agree with most people about the clip show episodes and Empty Nests. I also disliked Mister Terrific and Letter to Gorbachev. The Commitments, with the Beatles impersonator, was also rather irritating.
