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

Goofs

Dorothy and Stan got married because Dorothy got pregnant and they were married for 38 years. In one episode, they mention that Michael was the one conceived first, yet even though his age changes in different episodes, he's always in his twenties when he should really be in his early forties.

The 1985 and 1989 openings are usually replaced. See more »

A Classic!
30 October 2013 | by wahoo8888See all my reviews

There aren't many TV shows produced these days that will stand the test of time. This show has proved its meddle and then some. Every episode is a classic. The four stars etched in our brains as the golden girls we spent so many evenings with sharing cheesecake (and maybe an inappropriate story or two). All I can say is:

Thank you for being a friend. Travelled down the road and back again. Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant.

And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew. You would see the biggest gift would be from me and the card attached would say, thank you for being a friend.
