The Golden Girls is an American sitcom created by Susan Harris that aired on NBC from September 14, 1985, to May 9, 1992, with a total of 180 half-hour episodes, spanning seven seasons. With an ensemble cast starring Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty, the show is about four older women who share a home in Miami, Florida. It was produced by Witt/Thomas/Harris Productions, in association with Touchstone Television. Paul Junger Witt, Tony Thomas, and Harris served as the original executive producers.

The Golden Girls received critical acclaim throughout most of its run, and won several awards, including the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series twice. It also won three Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Each of the four stars received an Emmy Award, making it one of only four sitcoms in the award's history to achieve this. The series also ranked among the Nielsen ratings' top ten for six of its seven seasons. In 2013, TV Guide ranked The Golden Girls number 54 on its list of the 60 Best Series of All Time.In 2014, the Writers Guild of America placed the sitcom at number 69 in their list of the "101 Best Written TV Series of All Time". Terry Tang of the Associated Press reported that the series continues to attract new fans in the 21st century and characterized it as an example of a sitcom that has aged well.

I love Golden Girls. It's one of my go-to's when I want to remember my Mom. We used to watch it together, and she would laugh out loud at all of it. I would enjoy the show but moreso enjoyed watching her watch the show. She related so much to those old broads.

Rest in Peace, Mumzie.

Did the writers not know anyone of Italian ancestry that they wrote so cluelessly when it came to Sophia and Dorothy? It always bothered me that Sophia kept referring to her husband as Salvador, which is almost always the Spanish version of the name. An Italian man would have been called Salvatore.

Were American audiences in the 80s such bigots that they wouldn't have accepted Dorothy and Sophia being written as Jewish New Yorkers instead? Getty and Arthur would have been far more authentic playing a Jewish mother and daughter.

There are Italian Jews, R94. Maybe they were that. Wasn't George Costanza's father on Seinfeld of Jewish Italian descent.?

by Anonymousreply 95March 13, 2022 9:51 AM

R95, they were written as Sicilian Catholics. Estelle Getty reportedly begged the writers to make her character (presumably Ashkenazi) Jewish because she really couldn't get a handle on the immigrant Catholic woman she was supposed to be playing.

For someone who had supposedly immigrated to the US only after she was married, Sophia spoke lousy Italian and her spoken English sounded like that of someone raised in Brooklyn rather than Sicily.

The writers couldn't even get the more well-known aspects of Italian Catholic immigrant life correct. No way in hell would they have known a thing about the specific sub-culture of Sephardic Jews from Italy.

Did the episode where the old couple show up claiming that their and Sophia's babies were switched hint very strongly that Dorothy perhaps wasn't Sophia's daughter at all? It confused me as a kid because Bea Arthur had played some scenes as Sophia's mother in some flashback episodes, so I was puzzled by the prospect of Dorothy not even being related to Sophia.

GG's had way too many whimsical episodes that were just garbage. Most of season 5 were stupid, improbable episodes that were far removed from the actual or possible. Like the episode where Blanche and Dorothy go away and the girls rent out the rooms and make tonnes of money but then some stupid fuck breaks Blanche's orange plate and they have to spend all their earnings buying back the fucking plate only to have B break it when she returns. Horrible writing that was supposed to be ironic.

GG was a very sexist tv show. It should have been called "Cock-Loving Grannies" because that's all they talked about. It was a show about men with an all female cast. Instead of having four young attractive women talk about men all day long, they did it with older women and called it progressive. You have the stereotypes: The tall ugly girl who can't get dates, the dumb blonde, the slut and the non-threatening funny old lady. They are extremely catty and insecure, their entire lives and happiness revolve around men and how men please them or how they hurt them in the past. They wait around for their dates to show up or steal each other's dates. Dorothy hates her loser ex-husband Stan but keeps sleeping with him and almost marries him a second time. The show ends with the ugly duckling who turns into a princess and marries her prince charming. Now the good: All four actresses were top notch and they deserved better especially Bea Arthur who was called ugly and manly by the male writers during the first few seasons.

I just watched the episode where they win $10000 in an lottery ticket that ends up in the jacket of a homeless person, causing them to sleep in a shelter all night to get the ticket, only to then give the winnings to the creepy pastor in charge of the shelter.

Did anyone think that the pastor was really going to do anything to benefit the homeless? It was an odd, feel good gesture in a very strange episode, which sought to educate people on the plight of the homeless. I thought it was a great episode overall.

[quote]On July 8, 2019, Charles Levin's son reported to the police that Levin was missing, and had not been heard from since June 28. At the time, Levin lived in Grants Pass, Oregon, and was in the process of moving to a new house in the town. Levin's car was found on July 12 on a remote road northeast of Selma, Oregon. The body of his dog, Boo Bear, was found inside. Levin's body was found a day later. On November 8, 2019, authorities confirmed Levin's cause of death to be accidental. His car became stuck where it was later found, on an unmaintained wilderness road. After trying to free it, it appeared he left the car in search of help and fell to his death down a 30-foot (9 m) embankment. He was 70 years old.

I think it's in season 2 when Dorothy gets a foot operation but escapes from the hospital and Rose runs to Blanche's room and tells her she's seen "a big ugly man outside", and of course it's Dorothy.

Agree with r278 - it’s not a show that people watched (generally speaking) for the guest stars.

Even Debbie Reynolds was much much better on Will & Grace.

by Anonymousreply 282March 22, 2022 12:19 AM

Debbie Reynolds didn't have a character to work with on The Golden Girls, that was the problem. She had two brief scenes where she spouted a couple of one liners and that was it. I remember being baffled watching it at the time, because it was hyped up on shows like Entertainment Tonight about Debbie possibly joining The Golden Girls.

They made two episodes with characters that were possible Bea replacements, and they didn't bother actually making either character interesting or memorable. And the Gloria Two Parter was so bad, that Gloria disappears for half the show. It was like the writers lost interest in the idea halfway through writing the script!

I don't hate season seven, but it's far from my favorite either. I just find the writing infantilized and mean spirited.

I think seasons two through four are the best. Season three being the pinnacle of the show. Bringing up Baby, The Housekeeper are arguably the best.

R288 interesting I loved her in the first two seasons the most - and then in the last two just because she was such a fucking cunt by that point, but not the middle ones where I thought she was the most cloying and borscht belt-ish (even for her)

The middle seasons are also my least favorite in general, so there’s that.

Season 7 is the most fun to watch in reruns imo.

I will say, for the most part , the show was pretty steady, quality wise. Not like some other shows where the drop in quality is very obvious, and people all agree, or mostly agree. on a season or moment where things start going bad. I didn't really notice that on this show...there were some stinkers in the beginning, in the middle and in the end, and there were some magnificent episodes then too. Though I do say that I still prefer the earlier seasons because they were more based on the dialogue and had more "cheesecake" moments than the plot heavy ones.

Today TV series have a "Show Bible" that contains all the relevant information from all the episodes.

In the days of TGG, production was primarily concerned only about continuity within each specific episode.

Nor could they have foreseen the rise of the DL Cult of the Golden Girls, where each episode would be discussed and dissected ad nauseum.

I have a quantum physics/new age theory about the origin of Estelle's dementia. She's the only one who played older than her age. She played an elderly woman who sometimes had memory problems. There's even an entire episode about Sophia's gradual memory loss and Dorothy takes her to their old apartment in Brooklyn to help her remember her life with Sal. According to the LOA, if you 'act as if" meaning you pretend to have something you don't already have or you pretend to be someone else, your reality will start to mirror your new state of consciousness. I read a story about this in Deepak Chopra's book Quantum Healing. He mentioned a study that was done many years ago on men who were 70 and they pretended to be living in the 1950s when they were much younger. What happened was that they physically and psychologically got younger. Skin elasticity improved, eyesight, hearing, blood pressure etc. returned to normal. So if someone did the opposite, like Estelle did for 7 years and pretended they were much older than they actually were, the same thing could happen but in reverse. The person would develop the same problems elderly people tend to suffer from. Did Estelle unintentionally manifest her dementia by playing Sophia Petrillo?

In the book Golden Girls Forever, it is mentioned that Bea broke down crying at the reading table during Season 2 or 3 and said "You've been calling me a man for the past 70 shows!" She then threatened to quit the show. The male writers were idiots. Everyone knew what Bea looked like and the way she sounded. Why hire her to play Dorothy if all you're going to do is insult her? She seemed like a very reserved hyper sensitive and insecure woman. She also had an alcohol problem and people don't start drinking because they're happy. No wonder she took out her frustrations on Betty White who wasn't getting insulted by the writers, only her character was and Betty was cute, bubbly, full of energy and extroverted.

The strangeness of the Golden Girls... Bea was dumped by her husband Gene Saks after 30 years of marriage for a younger, blonde woman. Bea played Dorothy, a woman dumped by her husband Stan after 38 years of marriage for a younger, blonde woman. Betty lost her husband Allen Ludden in 1981. Betty played Rose who had lost her husband Charlie. Rue was married five times and loved the company of men. Rue played Blanche who although only married once, was a man-chasing nympho. Estelle gradually lost her memory and eventually died from Lewy Body Dementia in 2008. Estelle played Sophia, an elderly woman who often had memory problems. There was even an episode in season 5 called "Clinton Avenue Memoirs" about Dorothy being concerned that her mother is gradually losing her memory. Coincidences?

r465 Estelle had her moments, too... such as when Sophia's son died and her shame over his crossdressing or episodes where she had to confront issues worse than for her might be worse than death. Some of the lighter episodes weren't too bad such as when she competed with Blanche for a man's affection or believed she was an activities director. Unfortunately, they were far fewer and didn't delve too deeply. . . the writers seemed to have the most trouble with progressing her as a character rather than a plot device and writing for a more complex generation of a stiff upper lip or drawing greater contrast of being generations apart from the household and not fully in control or independent. It's a shame really considering the number of films at the time became popular with her character's age group in mind. . . it's not as if they didn't have resources to draw inspiration from.

by Anonymousreply 468April 19, 2022 7:32 PM

R468 I agree Estelle could be effective when given good material but unfortunately when she had more lines to say (instead of short one-liners) it exposed how much she struggled with delivery.

That said, some of the things they had her doing in later seasons, like jumping off a roof into hay or delighting in making Rose think she was channeling Charlie made the character repellent.

Why did Bea's voice get much deeper with age? I was listening on youtube to her one woman show on Broadway and she really sounded like a man. I always thought she had a deep voice but there was still some femininity to it. It got deeper towards the end of Golden Girls. During the Broadway show, she shared a piece of the Three Penny Opera she did when she was young and she had a beautiful singing voice. Not deep at all. Very nice, warm and sensual. I heard that she had goiters removed when she got older so maybe it was hormonal?

Why did the writers create some scenes with lesbian tension between Dorothy and Blanche? The Lesbian Lovers of Miami episode. Another one where Blanche has a dream that her husband is still alive and when she wakes up, Dorothy gets into bed with her to comfort her. Rose and Sophia enter the room and Sophia says "Oh no, it's Dorothy! She takes one tennis lesson!" Of course implying that something is going on between Dorothy and Blanche. Another time, Blanche and Dorothy are sitting on the couch and Blanche shows Dorothy how she seduces men. So she puts her arm around Dorothy and gently and sensually blows in her left ear. Sophia catches them and says something which I don't remember but it has to do with lesbianism. Another one is when Dorothy confesses to Blanche that she's developped an attraction to someone and Blanche automatically assumes that it's her but it's actually Stan. I'm sure there are other examples but I wondered why they did that? Was it the same on Maude? I never watched that show.

I think Blanche had a neat landing strip and shaved the rest.

R521 You forgot the time on the train to St Olaf (or St Gustav , whatever) where Blanche says “Dor-o-thy I love you as a friend but I think I’ll pass.”

R529 where Rose accepts the St. Olaf award.

Rose should have scissored with Jean the lebanese friend of Dorothy.

Rose would have brought real scissors to bed.

I'm surprised Blanche never caught or gave STD's to the various hordes of men she supposedly entertained..and who all appeared for her birthday party.

I always felt sorry for the actress playing Blanche, in real life she did think she was beautiful.

by Anonymousreply 545June 8, 2022 10:01 PM

So both Rue McClanahan and the character she played were delusional, R545?

by Anonymousreply 546June 9, 2022 2:11 AM

Rue and Blanche were both the ugliest cunts to ever live. That is beyond delusional and more psychotic.

by Anonymousreply 547June 9, 2022 1:23 PM

Isn’t that sort of the humor though?

Someone who is not attractive yet thinks others are “blinded by [their] beauty”?

At least they get their sight back in a few minutes.

And for the record, I thought Rue was the most attractive of the bunch.

by Anonymousreply 548June 9, 2022 4:14 PM

Rue was the most attractive, a beauty when younger.

Betty had the blond hair, big tits and blue eyes but she was never anything more than pretty when younger. She was believable as a wholesome farm girl

1991 season was on TV.

by Anonymousreply 552June 9, 2022 10:11 PM

Rue was the most attractive younger, but Betty's beauty aged better. The darker hair and black and white of the tv shows also worked against her, but in color, and with blonde her she was a beat. Always thought she looked beautiful here (granted its a few years before GG)

I've been watching season one in the order they originally aired and it's so jarring that the Job Hunting episode, which I believe was filmed as episode 2, didn't air until toward the end of the season. It's look is different, the different director is noticeable, the performances aren't as comfortable.

by Anonymousreply 557June 11, 2022 3:58 AM

(R546) I would imagine anyone playing opposite Bea Arthur would be considered beautiful.

Not part of GG, but Bea was one of the hosts of Circus of the Stars in 1985 and she almost has a heart attack when Willie Ames pole breaks. It starts at 1:21:33. It's funny yet sad nobody warned her about this. She must have been very embarrassed. Knowing Bea, she probably got a lot of people fired lol.

Do you think Golden Girls went too far with the Scandinavian jokes? You had Rose who was a dumb woman of Scandivanian heritage from Minnesota. Her cousin Sven was an idiot. Dorothy called Rose a "Swedish Meatball" and a "Scandinavian Nitwit". Rue in the interview below also calls Rose a "wide-eyed, empty-brained, Scandinavian." I'm not sure Bea and Estelle would have been happy with a negative portrayal of Jews on the show. Scandinavians have very advanced countries and they seem to be very intelligent. Any Swedes, Danes, Norwegians or Finns here on Datalounge? Care to tell us what you think of the show's portrayal of your kind?
