The Golden Girls is based on the lives and interactions of four older women who 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

In regards to the show in which Rose is fighting her addiction to pain pills and how she is allergic to cats, in one show where Blanche is reminiscing about how she first met Rose, Rose had a cat, Mr. Peepers, which she offered to a little boy to keep when Blanche later said that it showed her that Rose had character.

I have writer's block. It's the worst feeling in the world.
Try ten days without a bowel movement sometime.

Season 1 (1985-1986) had a slightly different opening sequence consisting of a different shot of the city behind the show's title, one different clip in-between the credits for 'Beatrice Arthur' and Betty White, and a different clip behind the credit for Rue McClanahan. This open was replaced with the 1986 opening for syndication. The original opening has been restored to the season 1 DVD release. See more »
A Hilarious Show That People of ALL AGES can enjoy!
Some people may think that only older women can enjoy this show because the four stars of the show are older women. That is completely incorrect though. I'm a 14 year old boy that LOVES to watch this show with my mom and 11 year old brother. These women may be old, but their humor and personalities are that of someone in their 20s-40s!
Dorothy Zbornak (Beatrice Arthur), Rose Nyland (Betty White), Blanche Devereaux (Rue McClanahan), and Sophia Petrillo (Estelle Getty) are four elderly women, all widows except for Dorothy, who's divorced, who live together in Miami, Florida. While their personalities differ, and this causes many conflicts and arguments between them, they love each other no matter what.
The great thing about this show is that it took a chance by starring four actresses in their mid 50s to 60s and showed that just because you're old, it doesn't mean that life is over and you can't have fun anymore. The humor reaches to all age demographics and the characters each have such distinct, hilarious traits that watching them try to get along is a hoot.
If you're a boy or adult man that feels embarrassed to watch this show, DON'T. It's a pure classic that will never be forgotten in my life and will always be one of my favorite shows! This show proves that hilarity doesn't just come from younger folks, but that it can come from older people just as much!!! Long live The Golden Girls!!! 10 out of 10 EASILY!!!
