Laura San Giacomo,
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

One of the few series of its era to include openly gay and lesbian characters, and deal with related issues. The Pilot featured the Girl's openly gay personal chef Coco, and Blanche had an openly gay brother Clayton, who appeared in a couple of episodes. Another episode featured an old friend of Dorothy's who was Lesbian. At least one other episode dealt with the theme of HIV/AIDS. The series has also attracted a strong following among the LGBT community. See more »
Depending on the episode, Dorothy either had no date for the prom and got pregnant by Stan, went to the prom with Stan and then got pregnant, or had another date to the prom who didn't show up and got pregnant by Stan. (Any way you look at it, though, Dorothy got pregnant by Stan.) See more »
When men see that you shave your legs above the knee, what does that say to them?
Hopefully it says, '"Touch my leg!"
That's in case they miss the tattoo that says the same.

Even though the 1980's was a pretty barren decade as far as television was
concerned, this is one of the few rare gems that came out during that time.
This show featured one of the best ensemble casts in the history of
television and the four leads made this show a Saturday night staple. I
especially liked the irony of the fact that Rue McClanahan and Betty White
essentially switched their trademark characterizations. For years
McClanahan played the dim bulb Vivian on "Maude" and White played the man
hungry vamp Sue Ann on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show". However, on this show
McClanahan played the vamp and White played the dim bulb and this wound up
making the characters of Blanche and Rose two of the most unforgettable in
the history of television. Also, let's not forget Estelle Getty's memorable
portrayal of Sophia. She was probably the best thing about the show and
really what made this show a classic and it was her interaction with the
other three, especially Rose and, of course, Dorothy that made this one of
the most beloved shows of the 1980's.
