Very Risky and Very Good
26 July 2010 | by (Bayside, San Andreas) – See all my reviews

The Golden Girls was known as a series that took no boundaries in their subject matter, and "Scared Straight" certainly shows they didn't care what they discussed.

Blanche's brother comes to visit, and she tries to set him up on a couple of dates. But, he reveals to Rose he is gay, and he doesn't know how to reveal it to Blanche. Then, complications ensue when her brother claims Rose and he slept together.

A really funny, brave episode that tackles the subject of homosexuality effortlessly, and fearlessly. There's also another storyline that is pointless; Sophia thinks she is going to die in 2 days, and no one takes her seriously. It is pointless and not very funny, but you can look over it.
