“Maude’s New Friend” (December 2, 1974): And then there’s Maude! Bea Arthur teaches us all a valuable lesson about how liberals can also be prejudiced in this third-season episode that’s all about Maude trying and failing to celebrate a newfound homosexual acquaintance.

“There’s Always Room for Cello” (December 14, 1990): What smells like Wario + Newman + extra farts? It’s Roy Biggins, the chuckling villain of Wings, an NBC sitcom that is a solid B but which has a reputation for being a C minus. In the second season, Roy’s son came […]

“Lamont, Is That You?” (October 19, 1973): Norman Lear for the win! This podcast probably won’t go in depth on ’90s classics like Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Family Matters or A Different World because many black sitcoms of that era didn’t do gay episodes. Back in 1973, Sanford and Son […]

(January 31, 1994): Whoa. Blossom was famous for two things: hats and Very Special Episodes. And while its gay episode is suspiciously lacking in hats, it seems like its several Very Special Episodes rolled up into one.
