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 actresses trying out for the part of Dorothy, the description of the character was "a Bea Arthur-esque role". See more »
In the first episode that Michael appears, Dorothy says that he is 29, but later when he is to marry Lorraine, he is 23 and she is 44. Then when he comes a third time, he doesn't mention his child at all when she kicks him out of the house. See more »
Oh, Blanche, if your 21st birthday was 20 years ago, you'd only be 41 years old!
Gee, you look terrible for your age.

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 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, identify, and of course laugh at their adventures. Simply a show for the ages.
