Walking the listener through the synopsis of each Golden Girls episode, Alisha and her personal 'Coco' touch on the pop culture references, the 'oh boys' of jokes that didn't age well and 'plot whoopsies'. There will even be special guests to discuss the topics from the show, showing us why the Golden Girls are so beloved to this day.
Sick And Tired Part 1
46:56When Dorothy comes down with a mysterious illness, she begins the epic journey of diagnosis via multiple opinons. Sadly for Dorothy, she’s an unwell woman in 1989. So every male doctor she’s seen has dismissed her claims as being due to either old age or a mental health issue. But she won’t give up and neither will Sophia- the protective mother always by her side…helping. While Dorothy deals with all of that and Rose supports her, Blanche is busy pursuing her destiny as a romance novel writer…even if she hasn’t written a single word. Come along as we go to the doctors, a BBQ and New York City in Part 1 of Sick and Tired.
We’re Outta Here Part 2
1:02:17We’ve made it to part 2 of the two-part season finale! Join us as we wrap up season 4 with some visits to seasons 1, 2, and 3. This journey will take us to Gone with the Wind, Suzanne Somers, Bob Hope, Anita Bryant, screaming chickens, Swept Away, and Ellen Burstyn! Through all of this, there really is only one question- will Blanche sell the house? Let’s find out as we finish the season with We’re Outta Here Part 2.
We're Outta Here Part 1
53:38It’s the end of the season, almost, and it’s a clip show! How dare they end the season with not just a clip show made up of old clips, not original ones like Bedtime Stories or Rites of Spring. Oh no, it’s a TWO PARTER! Now that’s just rude. But it’s fun to revisit some of the best times from the past 4 seasons. Even if it’s just clips will we have a great time, of course! So let’s get to dancing, praying and showbiz chickens in part one of We’re Outta Here!!
52:26When Sophia’s old friends come to town, they have some exciting news- their daughter is getting married! They also have some surprising news- their daughter isn’t the woman they brought with them, it’s Dorothy! This is devastating to the Patrillo women who are left wondering if they’re actually related to each other. Will they take a blood test? Will our hearts collectively break learning they aren’t? Will Blanche ever learn how to make her body sexy at her dirty dancing class? Will we be able to purchase Rose’s athletic dancewear line? All of that and more in today’s episode, Foreign Exchange.
Rites Of Spring
52:43When the girls realize it’s almost time for their friend’s summer kickoff party, they then also realize they need to get into shape for said party. As they sit around the table commiserating, they try to come up with new ways of losing weight quickly by revisiting other attempts they’ve made at improving their appearance in the past. So join us as we join the girls as they give aerobics a try, seek self-esteem with a new hairdo, and reject a new way of thinking- brought to them by Stan. Will the girls lose the few pounds they feel they need to? Will Sophia find her missing pound? Will we, as a culture, ever stop valuing ourselves based on our appearance? All of that and more in today’s episode, Rites of Spring.
41:26When Sophia learns her friend has been sent to a care facility that makes Shady Pines look like the Ritz-Carlton, she goes into action. But helping a friend who needs to be taken care of takes more than goodwill. Will Lillian become a permanent resident on Richmond Street? Will Rose get arrested for adult-napping? Will Blanche’s boobies become bigger, bouncier, and more bountiful? All of that and more in today’s episode- Sophia’s Choice.
43:35When Rose’s little sister comes to town, she’s not excited. She’s always felt like her sister had it out for her. That she was building a campaign against her so Rose would be left out. The girls don’t believe her, or that her sister is fooling with Blanche’s beau. Will Rose be vindicated? Will her sister get busted? Will Sophia ever find Dreyfus the dog after losing him? All of that and more in today’s episode- Little Sister.
55:39After Sophia accidentally disposes of Rose’s medication, everyone learns she’s been addicted to prescription medication for 30 years! So it’s time for the girls to band together and support their friend. Even though Sophia and Dorothy have a pizza commercial to shoot in the morning, they’re happy to stay by Rose’s side to get through the night. Their intentions are good, but will they help cure Rose’s addiction, and will Dorothy and Sophia kickstart their acting career with their commercial? Will we learn more about the video equipment in Blanche’s room? All of that and more in today’s episode, High Anxiety.
Till Death Do We Volley
53:28When Dorothy hosts a reunion party, she’s most excited to see her old emotional sparring partner, Trudy. Once Trudy arrives, the Girls are surprised to see Dorothy’s competitive side- it’s kind of nasty and intense. Even more surprising is when Trudy drops dead while they’re playing tennis. Will Dorothy ever recover enough to host her party? Will Blanche or Sophia present a meaningful story? Will Rose stay mad at Dorothy forever? All of that and more in today’s episode, Till Death Do We Volley.
Fiddler On The Ropes
57:32When Rose makes the mistake of trusting Sophia with a very important task, it’s no surprise it doesn’t go as expected. Instead of opening an investment account, Sophia comes home with a boxer- and we don’t mean of the dog variety. The girls are soon convinced that they’ll make, not just their money back, but a significant profit- so they agree to manage the fighter. Things are all on track until they learn that Kid Pepe is a multi-hyphenate. Will Pepe throw the fight to save his hands and his chance at getting into Juliard? Will the girls get their money back? Will we ever understand how they can sleep in such restrictive sleepwear? All of that and more in today’s episode- Fiddler On The Ropes.
