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

Trivia

In the first season exteriors of the house were shot from a real house in California. For later seasons exterior shots were filmed at Walt Disney World's MGM Studios (now "Disney's Hollywood Studios"). They built an exact replica of the house in Orlando. This replica was demolished in 2003. See more »

Goofs

As with any long-running show there are many inconsistencies between episodes. Characters' life histories, their birthdays and ages are reported differently from time to time as the writers invent new stuff for them that wasn't thought of when the series began. "Facts" are altered to fit the jokes, and a good deal of leeway is allowed. See more »

Quotes

Sophia: Blanche, a terrible thing has happened to you. But when life does something like this, there are a couple of things you got to remember. You got your health, right?
Blanche: Yeah.
Sophia: You can still walk, can't you?
Blanche: That's true.
Sophia: Great, go get me a glass of water.

A Hilarious Show That People of ALL AGES can enjoy!
9 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

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!!!
