Not sure if I'm posting this in the correct forum, if not, feel free to move this topic!
Okay, so here it goes. I'm watching the show for the very first time at the moment. I'm in season 2, somewhere in the middle. The last episode I watched was the one where Rose moves out. (I was so upset! Rose needs to be with her friends!)
My favorite episode so far was the one where Dorothy, Blanche and Rose were mistakenly identified as prostitutes because Blanche booked them into a hotel for prostitutes and their clients, lmfao. I couldn't stop laughing! I also adored the episode with the dog that slept on Dorothy's bed, lol. (I'm sorry, I'm still trying to learn episode titles, I will get better at this, I promise.) There were also quite a few other hilarious scenes that had me in stitches ("SHRIMP?" oh GOD NO, Blanche) and "Go hug a landmine" and "in what, Blanche, dog years?" ROFL ROFL ROFL
Oh and I loved the episode with Jean who fell in love with Rose. Sophia's remark about lesbians shedding, ROFLMFAO. But really, the episode was just beautifully done, especially considering how crudely this subject was handled on television at the time (if it was handled AT ALL). I loved how Rose wasn't offended, and more like surprised. And I hollered when Blanche got upset about Jean not being in love with HER, lmao. And Dorothy being like "BLANCHE PLEASE", hahahaha!
As you can see, Dorothy is my absolute fave because she's so SAVAGE. Zero chill. I ADORE HER SO MUCH. I also love how she has to visibly restrain herself from making savage remarks sometimes. I knew I loved her from the moment she shoved Rose into that closet. LOLOLOL.
My second favorite is definitely Blanche, if it wasn't for Dorothy and me being so alike, Blanche would be my favorite. I love Blanche-centered episodes, and I can't wait to experience even more of them. Rose and Sophia are great as well (I mean Betty White is ICONIC) but I seem to prefer episodes that focus on either Dorothy or Blanche or the two of them together.
I'll be updating this topic when I run into an episode that really stands out for me for some reason, I'm sure there will be plenty of those! I wish I'd thought of making this topic sooner but hey, I'm still early on into the show, there's plenty of stuff for me to write about!
Does anyone have any specific recommendations? Things to look out for? I don't mind spoilers.
