Comedy for almost any generation,
This review is from: The Golden Girls - The Complete First Season [DVD]  (DVD)
Before Sex & The City, before Lipstick Jungle, before Desperate Housewives there was a show. A show that didn't need to rely on the most fashionable trends. A show that didn't need to rely on the skinniest most attractive actresses.
A show that focused on the lives of women in their Golden years living together in a four bedroom house in Miami. The Golden Girls was it.
Four single women, vivacious man-eater Blanch, sweet naive farm girl Rose, the rational school-teacher Dorothy and her wise-cracking smart-mouthed mother, deal with the struggles of everything from age discrimination, the trials of friendship and middle-aged dating.
Funny, thoughtful, incredibly well written and acted. This is comedy that despite the aged haircuts and outfits, is completely timeless.
