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

It was not originally scripted for Blanche to have a Southern accent. Instead, it was Rue McClanahan's idea to do so. See more »

Goofs

As with any long-running show there are many inconsistencies between episodes. Characters' life histories, their birthdays and ages are reported differently from time to time as the writers invent new stuff for them that wasn't thought of when the series began. "Facts" are altered to fit the jokes, and a good deal of leeway is allowed. See more »

Quotes

[Dorothy is solving a murder mystery]
Dorothy: On the other hand, Phillip would never use a Mayan sacrificial knife as a murder weapon. Too obvious. But, it would be no problem for his sister to sneak the weapon out of his collection.
Gloria: This woman's pathetic.
Sophia: Oh. Big news. Tear out the front page.

One of the best shows that ever come out of 80's
13 September 2002 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

It's amazing that the Lifetime Network runs it three to five times a day,but this was one of the best shows ever to come out of the golden age of the 1980's. "The Golden Girls" was produced by the creating team of Paul Junger Witt and Tony Thomas who also was behind the most successful series ever devised like "Soap","Benson","It's A Living", "Empty Nest" and so many more. The series originally ran during the 80's as NBC-TV's most successful prime-time of Saturday night sitcoms and dramas which include "227","Amen",and the crime drama series "Hunter". Anyways,Bea Arthur's character was simply classic like vintage wine,but all that change when she left the series in 1992 ending the show. Also, Estelle Getty's character was simply a riot of classic comedy. Enough said.
