The Golden Girls is based on the lives and interactions of four older women who 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

The house's kitchen was recycled from the short-lived Susan Harris series It Takes Two (1982), which ran in 1982-83. After the first few episodes in season 1, the polka dot wallpaper of the original kitchen was replaced with a leafy pattern, deemed to be more "tropical" in appearance. See more »
The background set with two elevator doors is used as the backdrop for numerous interiors: the museum where Blanche works, the counseling center where Rose works, and the city hospital to name three. Also, the museum where Blanche works was used as a psychiatrist's waiting room. See more »
Ohhh, do you know how many great, late night talks we've had at this kitchen table over cheesecake?

The Golden Girls is a wonderfully written, extremely funny show that will always be one of the greatest comedy efforts of all time. The show has laughter everyone can enjoy, and it explores topics that few shows dare to address. All four women won Emmy Awards for their roles, and the show enjoyed extraordinary ratings and acclaim. Every aspect of the show provides for pure comedic entertainment that transcends the art itself. The show provides a look into how friends from very different backgrounds compliment each other and become the best of friends. Each character brings a unique dynamic to the plot, and any viewer can learn from, identify with, and, of course, laugh at their adventures. Simply a show for the ages.
