20: Maude’s New Friend Is a Homo


“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. This episode is pretty wild, as Glen puts it, and it holds up better than a lot of TV airing ten and twenty years later.
