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

I grew up with this show, and I must say, it is pure golden! First of all, the relationship between the four women is absolutely stunning (I wish all friendships were like that in real life). Four beautiful, elderly women reminisce about their past lives and past romances/relationships with men, old friends and all that other stuff while dwelling in a home in Miami (I wish I could go to Miami now!) The lines are funny and/or bitterly sarcastic, and I love how Rose just blurts out funny, random stories of her life in St. Olaf. Unfortunately, there are no TV shows like this nowadays. Not even a not-so-good "sitcom" like Marvin Marvin could ever outshine this beauty of a TV series.
