The Golden Girls on Hulu: 20 Classic Episodes to Pair With Your Cheesecake

Thank you, Hulu, for being a friend to all us lifelong Golden Girls fans. Next Monday, the streaming service will be adding all 180 episodes of the Emmy-winning ’80s sitcom, so anytime we want, we can plop down with a slice of cheesecake and enjoy the menopausal misadventures of Miami roommates Dorothy, Blanche, Rose and Sophia.

But where to start? Sure, binge-watching the whole series from start to finish sounds like a fantastic way to spend 90 hours to us. (Think of all the great St. Olaf stories you’d hear from Rose!) But if you’re feeling more selective — you know, unlike Blanche — we’ve picked 20 standout episodes that do an especially good job of delivering the bawdy humor, quotable one-liners and female bonding we know and love. Plus, at least a few dozen annoyed reaction shots from Bea Arthur.

So read on to see the episodes we’ve picked as the very best of The Golden Girls, and then head over to Hulu on Monday to enjoy them all… with whatever flavor of cheesecake you prefer.

Click through the gallery on the right, or click here for direct access, to see our picks for the greatest Golden Girls episodes, then hit the comments to tell us your favorites.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I love The Golden Girls so much and it doesn’t matter that I own all the DVDs I’ll still fire up Hulu and start watching.

  2. Steven says:

    How can you not include Mrs. George Devereaux. I cry every time. She finally got to hug him! Or Goodbye Mr. Gordon when Blanche and Dorothy are mistaken for lesbians on a talk show.

  3. Erin B says:

    I love the episode when Rose is dating a little person, & she has him over for dinner to meet the girls. They are awkward about it but trying their best. So then Blanche goes into the kitchen, brings a shrimp tray into the living room, & says, “Shrimp?” Then just turns & walks right back into the kitchen. All of the ladies had such great comedic timing.

    • Steven says:

      One of the best moments! Not sure the episode, but Blanche says she’s so mad she could scream and then shrieks is also hilarious!

      • Joey says:

        Rose: “Wow, that’s the first time I’ve heard someone say that and actually do it! It’s like saying, ‘I laughed all the way to the bank.’ I’ve never seen anyone do that either.”

    Definitely one of the all-time great sitcoms. Holds up decently too.

  5. kmw says:

    I agree with everyone except the Mario Lopez one and the one where Blanche sings those weren’t their best, but really The Golden Girls didn’t have too many bad episodes

    Grab That Dough was such a terrible game show
