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

Both Estelle Getty and Bea Arthur were Jewish, not Italian. Reportedly, Getty used to ask the producers "couldn't we just make [Dorothy and Sophia] Jewish?" The producers wouldn't budge. See more »
In one episode, Blanche says, "Dorothy, I've given this a lot of thought. I've had 4 kids, I've never had a Mercedes. So, which one do you want? Biff, Doug, Skippy?" However, Blanche has two daughters, Rebecca and Janet, who both made appearances on the show. She also states in "To Catch a Neighbor" that she has a son named Matthew, which would give her 6 children, not 4. See more »

I'm sorry Sophia, what seems to be the problem?
I'm not a doctor, how am I supposed to know?

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 »
The best show of the 1980's, hands down. I loved this show from the first episode and have all seven seasons on DVD. They get watched all the time in my house. The acting and writing was top notch on this show. I consider it the last good TV show in my opinion. It went off the air in May 1992 and that is really when I stopped watching current TV. The shows on now just can't compare. It also dealt with some very touching subjects such as, blindness, Alzheimer's, homosexuality, AIDS, impotence, bigamy, and chronic fatigue syndrome, and did it with quite a bit of class. I think overall my favorite season would be the third one. My favorite character would have to be Blanche. I just love her attitude and the way she always pretends she is much younger than she really is. If you want to see four excellent actresses and some classic timing and comedy sit down and enjoy The Golden Girls.
