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

In the fifth episode in Season seven 'Not Another Monday', Blanche, Rose, and Dorothy attempt to sing a baby to sleep. They harmonise the song 'Mr Sandman', reminiscent of Three Men and a Baby where the song 'Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight' is harmonised to put baby Mary to sleep. See more »

Goofs

The layout of the house is entirely illogical. Not only does it not match the exterior shown, but the lanai is not in the back of the house, it's on the side of the front. The back hallway of the kitchen does not lead to the garage, it runs into the hallway to the bedrooms. The hallway to the bedrooms exists by itself, as either side of it leads to the kitchen or the backyard. The door on the side of the garage is on the wrong wall according to the layout of the kitchen, and the exterior of the house. See more »

Blanche: This is strictly off the record but Dirk is nearly five years younger than I am.
Dorothy: In what, Blanche, dog years?

Compulsively watchable TV-sitcom
31 July 2002 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

With its bright, wicker-strewn set and four distinct female characters, I don't see how "The Golden Girls" could've missed. Add a terrific cast, and you've got a goldmine. My favorite episodes are the serious one about Alzheimers, the hilarious one where the women have to decide between a new roof or a painting by a dying artist, and any of those that prominently feature Beatrice Arthur (portraying my favorite golden girl, Dorothy Zbornak). Occasionally there was a dip in inspiration, such as the groan-filled two-parter about Blanche's moonlight madness party, or some fearsome overacting (Estelle Getty was the usual culprit). Still, the reruns never fail to get a laugh out of me, and I must know the episodes by heart by now. Sharp, canny writing, funny second plots to match the main action, brilliant characterizations and good writing for the supporting players. It is my generation's "I Love Lucy".
