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

The layout of the house is entirely illogical. Not only does
it not match the exterior shown, but the lanai is not in the back of the house, it's on the side of the front. The back hallway of the kitchen does not lead to the garage, it runs into the hallway to the bedrooms. The hallway to the bedrooms exists by itself, as either side of it leads to the kitchen or the backyard. The door on the side of the garage is on the wrong wall according to the layout of the kitchen, and the exterior of the house. See more »
Most syndicated and cable versions in the USA and Canada, in addition to being cut by 1-2 minutes, use a 25-second version of the 1986 opening sequence on most episodes, or an extended version of said sequence in a small number of episodes. The 1985 and 1989 openings are usually replaced. 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!!!
