Storyline

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 John W. Hale

The best TV show of the 1980's
10 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

The best show of the 1980's, hands down. I loved this show from the first episode and have all seven seasons on DVD. They get watched all the time in my house. The acting and writing was top notch on this show. I consider it the last good TV show in my opinion. It went off the air in May 1992 and that is really when I stopped watching current TV. The shows on now just can't compare. It also dealt with some very touching subjects such as, blindness, Alzheimer's, homosexuality, AIDS, impotence, bigamy, and chronic fatigue syndrome, and did it with quite a bit of class. I think overall my favorite season would be the third one. My favorite character would have to be Blanche. I just love her attitude and the way she always pretends she is much younger than she really is. If you want to see four excellent actresses and some classic timing and comedy sit down and enjoy The Golden Girls.
