The Entertainment Files – Condoms! Condoms! Condoms!

The Entertainment Files is a brand new feature on Hugh’s Views and News.

Over the coming days/weeks/months/years, I hope to entertain you with humour, laughter, challenges, music and lots more.

We kick off the series with my all-time favourite moment from the American sitcom television series, The Golden Girls. Warning – it does contain some adult humour.

The Golden Girls is an American sitcom television series created by Susan Harris. It originally aired on NBC from September 14, 1985, to May 9, 1992, with a total of 180 half-hour episodes spanning seven seasons.

The show stars Beatrice Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty as four older women who share friendship, and a home in Miami, Florida.

I hope the clip made you laugh as much as it makes me smile whenever I watch it.

  1. I watched some episodes of the Golden Girls. Betty White is a role model for ageing well and staying active. Thanks, Hugh, for sharing some light and laughter. #senisal

  2. Classic series Hugh! Loved that show. My fav was Blanche – going back to her character Maude – same character, which originally spun off of All in the Family. Ahh, the good old days ❤

    1. I don’t think I ever saw ‘All in the Family’, Debby. However, I had the please of seeing Rue McClanahan in ‘Wicked’ on Broadway. We queued up for cancellation tickets and could not believe our luck when we found ourselves fives rows back from the stage. Yes, I was that close to her.

  3. I didn’t watch all the Golden Girls episodes though the ones I did catch were very funny. I liked Betty White’s gentle satire of the Norwegians and Swedes of the northern states (Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota) because it reminded me of my grandparents and great uncles and aunts who immigrated to that region.

    1. Betty White certainly brought a lot of humour to the show. Her innocence of what was really going on always had me laughing. I loved her tales of St.Olif and the people who lived there. The looks on the other’s faces as she told her stories is a classic.

    1. Those awards were well earned, Terri. Only Betty White is still alive, but the humour they all gave us can still be shared. The show never ceases to make me laugh and feel good. The house from the show used to be part of one of the rides at Universal Studios. I don’t know if it’s still there, though.

  4. I used to watch the show, but I don’t remember this particular episode. The price check over the loudspeaker was funny stuff.

    1. I agree, Pete. I don’t know how the actors kept such straight faces while filming. There are seven seasons of the show. I think I’ve seen all the episodes, but I’m not sure.

  5. I’ve never heard of this show, Hugh. But, I grew up in Belgium and was born in 1975, so that might have something to do with it. Maybe my parents know it? I’ll watch the video you included whenever my internet is better. Thanks for spreading humor and laughs!

    1. You’re welcome, Liesebet. ‘The Golden Girls’ had a huge following in the UK, especially amongst the LGBT community. I remember it being screened on Friday nights in pubs. I hope you enjoy the clip and that it makes you laugh. It never fails to make me laugh.

    1. Yes, Betty is the sole saviour of the show now. I also remember her in the horror movie ‘Lake Placid’, although I couldn’t help but keep seeing her as ‘Rose’ in the film.

    1. Give ‘The Golden Girls’ a try if you can find it, Robbie. Here in the UK, there are lots of full-length episodes available on YouTube.

      Bea Arthur was my favourite in the show. Her character had such a dry sense of humour that it could cut through the fog. She was a very talented actor.

  6. A first for me ..Thank you, Hugh the series may be needed if cocooning ourselves at home gets a tad too much 🙂 It will keep him indoors happy I am sure 🙂

        1. It’s more time that I have a problem with, Hugh! I’m still on and out of school at the moment, and when home, tfruing to help my two with their online learning!

        2. We’re only watching them in the evening when we can’t find anything else to watch, or we want something to make us laugh. Come the autumn, when there will be nothing but repeats on because the current filming of shows has stopped because of COVID-19, I think these episodes will come in very handy.

      1. I’m not usually a fan of those smartass comedies but that did make me laugh. Maybe I’ll try a few. Thanks for the tip, Hugh. Stay safe.

  7. I watched every single episode. I remember Blanch looking down into a hand-held mirror and getting horrified because of how her skin drooped downward. Then she held the mirror above her head and looked up and said, “Hello, gorgeous!” For some reason I found that hilarious.
