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

When the original pilot script was submitted to Disney/Touchstone, 'Michael Eisner' liked it but he felt something was missing. He thought a show about three old women living together might scare away younger viewers. He asked Susan Harris to keep working on it. Harris then added the character of Sophia. When she was added, Dorothy became just another woman dealing with her mother and Eisner loved it. After Sophia was added and a pilot was shot, a character named Coco, a gay male servant was cut from the series. See more »
Depending on the episode, Dorothy either had no date for the prom and got pregnant by Stan, went to the prom with Stan and then got pregnant, or had another date to the prom who didn't show up and got pregnant by Stan. (Any way you look at it, though, Dorothy got pregnant by Stan.) See more »
This show tells about four elderly women sharing an apartment in Miami.These women are Dorothy (Beatrice Arthur), Rose (Betty White), Blanche (Rue McClanahan) and Dorothy's mother Sophia (Estelle Getty).There are also Herb Edelman as Stan and Harold Gould as Miles.This sitcom was created by Susan Harris and it ran in the years 1985-1992.I think it's a very funny show with also some dramatic stuff. I'm 22 years old, so I'm not even close to the age these actors are in the show, but age doesn't matter when it comes to comedy.What made this show great was the lovable characters.All of those people were kind of people you cared about.There were also some brilliant guest stars in the show, like Burt Reynolds, Phil Leeds, Quentin Tarantino, Don Ameche, Dick Van Dyke, Mickey Rooney, George Clooney and Leslie Nielsen. I remember when they showed The Golden Girls on channel 2 here in Finland and liked it then.Now they're showing on channel 4 and still like it.If they show this show as a re-run make sure you see it.These girls really are golden.
