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 many episodes, the girls have money struggles and concerns not enough to fix the roof, not enough to buy a new TV, etc.
In other episodes, they can afford to hire a housekeeper (like they need one), buy designer dresses, and travel anywhere at the drop of a hat. See more »

Dorothy, would you like to try this thing?
What is it?
Well, that wire vibrates and it's supposed to whisk hair away from below the skin line.
Yeah, I don't know whether I wanna use this. It says it's gonna hurt.
Well, you can try it on your right leg and then use the hot wax on your left one.
Why don't we just set each other on fire?
All right, all right. Let's see if they sent a bullet to bite on.

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