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

Being born in the late 80s, I actually got to watch these series when I was a teenager, and I couldn't help but love these four ladies sharing their experiences as four house-mates would. Perhaps the most interesting aspect is getting to watch how women that are not so young date, grieve, laugh and experience different traumas and situations, and to see all these through their eyes - and the eyes of their house-mates, of course! The episodes are light and refreshing, and many times one is surprised with beautiful lessons that are hard to forget. Also, these series prove to be a great way of representing older women, who are often forgotten and shunned by society, under a favorable light; I only wish there were more series and movies taking "golden girls" into account! I can't find a way to describe these series,except by saying the "Golden Girls" are unique! I don't think their appeal will ever die.
