  • An appreciation review of the first of the two Christmas episodes of the series.

    This was one of the very last of the holiday episodes of any sit-com that captured the essence of classic tv. Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia are getting ready to all go home for the holidays and you can practically feel their excitement; later in the episode with the crazy loon holding them at gunpoint in Rose's office the repartee between Blanche and Dorothy is some of the very best in the entire run of the series: Blanche: I have been told I bear a striking resemblance to Ms Cheryl Ladd... although, my bosoms are perkier. Dorothy: Not even if you were hanging upside down on a trapeze!!!

    Some of the best writing in television history is contained in this show and this episode is chock-full of highlights: ('The Men of Blanche's boudois' calendar, etc.); that's what I love so much about the show (Dorothy always had the very best lines, she was certianly my favorite). The holidays are definitely a little brighter with this episode now available on DVD for all of us to enjoy each year... whether you celebrate Christmas, Channukah or Kwanzaa, this is one for all to appreciate. Happy Holidays from Florida and the Girls from Miami!!!
