Ladies of the Evening (#2.2)
12 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The girls win tickets to see Burt Reynolds. There are only 3 of them so once again is Sophia left out. Their house is also infested by the termites so they have to move to a hotel. Blanche chooses the one with most men in the lobby only it turns out to be a prostitution meetup so they get arrested.

So fr my favorite episode of the show. I must say that I have nothing against the prostitution or see women performing it as trash, but I will look over it for the great humor in the episode and the fact that it was done in the 80's.

So many hilarious moments. When Blanche, who as I noticed before is a hypocritical slut, calls other women around her trash, I would want to see her punched in the face, but I loved Dorothy's way to save her.

Absolutely loved how Sophia got the tickets and how she used the same lines they said when they didn't care about her being left out.

And when the St. Olaf comes to tell Rose she will go back now, I expected some annoying cheesiness only it ended up being a hilarious punchline.

Fun to see Burt Reynolds too, his type is so 80's! So it was a good guest star.
