Storyline

The Golden Girls is based on the lives and interactions of four older women whom have all been divorced/widowed, and are now roommates. Dorothy's main goal during the series is to find a companion she can relate to while her mother Sophia adds her comical outlook and frequents "Picture This" stories. Rose's St. Olaf-ness makes her a little corny but lovable. One thing that changes nearly every episode is whom Blanche is courting. Written by John W. Hale

Trivia

Allegedly Bea Arthur called Betty White a "c___". Betty White acknowledges Bea didn't like her, and has said it was due to her eternally optimistic personality, which she said rubbed Bea the wrong way. See more »

Goofs

In the episode dealing with Rose's drug addiction, she jokingly states that this was the anniversary of her cat "Fluffy"'s death, and Dorothy reminds her that she never owned a cat because she was allergic to them. However, in at least one other episode, Rose spoke of having a cat. In addition, she also stated his name was "Lingstrom" rather than Fluffy. Also, in the episode where they reveal how they became roommates, Rose says her landlord kicked her out of her apartment because she refused to get rid of her cat, Mr. Peepers. See more »

User Reviews

Great show!
2 June 2003 | by (Flower Mound, Texas) – See all my reviews

This show was a friggin' classic!

This came out when I was very young, before they showed it in reruns on Lifetime, I had no clue what was so funny... now I know!

I'm a guy, but I enjoy shows like this because of almost everything... especially when the other three girls insult Rose.

The way I see it, no matter how many times you've seen this show, it's always funny.

This is definately a 10 in my book.
