Four women serve up laughter, seriousness, sarcasm, and sass.

Two words: Estelle Getty. Need I say more?

Well, I guess I should. First off, this is one of the few scripted shows I watch because the drama is great, but you can also relate to it, especially if you've ever lived with roommates. Also, Golden Girls, as others have written, is almost like a Sex and the City from the 1980s. Its four single or divorced women live together, share good times, bad times, and even tales from their love lives in a classy and dignified way.

The show's humor is different, seemingly archaic to most. But a small group of us still find the show funny because of its endless sarcasm, sexual references, and other nuances. Betty White, time after time, makes us laugh while Beatrice Arthur shows us the serious side of life. Estelle Getty exudes sarcasm just from her existence, and Rue McClanahan serves up sass like no other. What more could you ask for? It's a literal casserole of personalities served up in one Florida home. 

I don't know when its on, but if I'm channel surfing and it pops up, I'm sure to settle down and watch.

 I have been a fan of the The Golden Girls since it initially aired on NBC.  I have consistently watched it  on Lifetime and now Hallmark and have all the seasons on DVD (I even had to order a new set because I wore out the original).  I can quote it and watch them repeatedly whenever I need to lift my spirits.      The writing is absolutely superb.  Humor is used to deal with wonderful situations in life.  These golden girls are modern, free thinkers …

One of the funniest of the 80s - GOLDEN GIRLS - "Thank you for being a friend." transcends all age groups. Only Betty and Rue left now!

I am 22 years old. I like doing 22 year old things. But I also love the Golden Girls. The show is now (sadly) off the air but reruns and DVD releases have kept my addiction live and well.    If you are unfamiliar with this fabulous documentation of elderly women then let me fill you in. The show revolves around 4 best friends living it up in Miami, who just happen to be a little past their prime. The great thing is, no one has told them this, and they continue to act like a bunch …

I remember watching this show with my grandma.  I loved it.  I thought this dynamic bunch of woman were awesome...so they were in their golden years and I was just out of high school, but I loved every bit of it!    All 4 woman bring their own unique style to the show.  Blanche had a more seductive side to her, Rose was the simpleton of the group, then you have the more practical and more reserved Dorothy.  Then of course everybody's favorite Sofia who spoke …

Yay for The Golden Girls! They make being elderly and living in Miami look, well, fun. Screw being stuck with a crotchety old husband at that age - I'd rather live with these chicks! Bonus points goes to the shoulder pads, over-use of pastels, and best of all - Blanche's "leafy" bedroom and her cheesy suitors. These ladies make me laugh every time.

About this tv show

Wiki

The Golden Girls is based on the lives and interactions of four older women whom have all been divorced/widowed, and are now roommates. Bea Arthur's (Dorothy) main goal during the series is to find a companion she can relate to while her mother Estelle Getty (Sophia) adds her comical outlook and frequent "Picture This" stories. Betty White's St. Olaf-ness makes her a little corny but lovable. One thing that changes nearly every episode is whom Rue McClanahan (Blanche) is courting. She's a little too promiscuous for her own good.
