My favorite one, was the two-parter, where Dorothy flies to New York and finds out she has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Rose finally gets to see "The Big Potato", and Blanche gets writers block, with no sleep for days. Pure comedic genius. When I nearly "bit the bullet" back in Jan 2002, the show was a constant source of laughter in a world that seemed less-than-funny. I'm glad to see so many others who get even a little snicker out of it.
For any fans...
The GG are reuniting tonight on Lifetime TV @ 8pm ET/P, sans Estelle Getty (Sophia), who is battling Parkinson's.
I know this is going to sound pathetic, but I have been waiting for something like this for nearly 10 years. It's almost as if I am spending the evening with old friends. The only thing that could make this perfect, is if Estelle could have been there. Wherever you are, Estelle... I wish you the best.
LOL! OK, I LIKED the Golden Girls, but love??
It's A Livvvvvvvvvvvvvvving! JK! But seriously, do you remember that show? It was quite decent. Those waitresses on the top flo' of the skyrise?
Honestly, I am an avid fan of anything 80's related, ESPECIALLY sitcoms (Dan, back me up!) ... But the Golden Girls? hehe. My fave character was the seductive one. What was her name?
I don\'t advise
and I don\'t criticise
I just know what I like
with my own eyes...
I love the golden girls...although it did have it's VERY sitcom moments, i thought it was pretty sharp in the humor department. even the episodes i have seen a million times still make me laugh...it's VERY cool to see all the love for the show on here..lol...
it's one of my alltime fav shows...it, i love lucy, ab fab, strangers with candy (one of the sickest and funniest things i have EVER seen on tv), and now so graham norton, the gilmore girls, and 24.....fun thread...
...the revolution will be synthesized...
My wife and mother-in-law are huge "Golden Girls" fans. It's kind of funny because my wife is just now getting how "dirty" the show was. It sort of slipped over her head in the 80's. Such is the bliss of youth.
I saw this earlier in the week and thought it would be of interest to at least Jamie. From http://apnews1.iwon.com/article/20030627/D7RUB4L80.html :
NEW YORK (AP) - Four wisecracking women who love to talk about sex star in one of television's hottest shows - but it's not what you're thinking.
Forget "Sex and the City." The Lifetime network has a hit on its hands with "The Golden Girls."
The show airs seven times each weekday on the cable network, and this month's retrospective, "The Golden Girls: Their Greatest Memories," was the highest-rated special in Lifetime's 19-year history. The show with four gray-haired ladies is an unexpected hit among young women.
"I think it's amazing," said actress Betty White, who starred as the naive Rose Nylund in the series, which aired on NBC from 1985 to 1992. Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty co-starred.
When she's out now, White said, she's recognized more for her role in "The Golden Girls" than for the beloved "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," where she played WJM-TV's happy homemaker.
"The Golden Girls" is the most popular sitcom rerun on cable television after "Seinfeld" and "Friends." It's even watched more now than "The Cosby Show," considered the quintessential 1980s sitcom.
"It's going to be rerun 50 years from now, I guarantee you," said Tim Brooks, Lifetime's research director and a television historian. "It's a show that isn't specific to its time and is very much about people."
Lifetime began airing "The Golden Girls" in 1997 and it was popular from the start, although attention from the reunion has given it a boost lately. Lifetime estimates some 13 million people per week watch it.
Besides the seven weekday airings, Lifetime shows it twice on Saturday. On Sundays, the ladies rest.
