    A preachy holiday episode

    By readysetgo88, Aug 23, 2008

    This is one of those episodes that is supposed to draw attention to some social plight and teach everyone a lesson... which is not a bad goal, I guess, but it doesn't make for a great episode. I'm not big on "holiday" episodes of shows in the first place. Really the only part of it that's worth watching is the beginning where Blanche, Dorothy and Sophia all talk about how awful Rose's gift is sure to be, and the scene where they draw the names out of the hat. That is classic Golden Girls funny, but the rest is not. I do think it's touching that at the end Stan donates his fire engines that he was going to sell to the homeless kids, but generally I'd rather be laughing than be touched. So it's an ok episode, but I might only watch it once and a while, not frequently like many others.moreless
