Friendship before Manwhores
12 October 2014 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

When Sophia's Blood Pressure goes up, Dorothy is forced to call a nearby doctor in the area. Sofia is fine, but Dr. Clayton ends up becoming a hit with the ladies especially Dorothy and Blanche. Blanche makes a promise to Dorothy that Dorothy can have her, and she keeps her word. Their friendship is tested when Dr. Clayton makes a pass at Blanche, and Dorothy doesn't believe her. I usually find Blanche to be the most self-absorbed character on this show! It was rather refreshing to see her play someone that's sympathetic. I love Blanche, but she's the flamboyant one. This episode has some very heavy moments. Dorothy calling Blanche nasty names was rather intense. Rose is at her annoying/hilarious best as well. This episode delivers the message that friendship is far more important than any love interest! You should always side with the friend you know. Sofia steals scenes as she often does, but Peter Hansen is wooden and clunky as the Doctor. I didn't find him convincing in the slightest. I also thought the ending got a bit silly. Minor carps aside, this is a very good episode that fans will love!

8.4/10
