The Golden girls sitcom came out when I was in highschool and I would watch it with my mom. Now that I'm an older man I still find time to watch the reruns with my mom. Golden girls will always be one of my favorite tv shows .

This is the top, if not the only series that I go back to time and time again.

Dorothy was the glue, all important but can you imagine the show without her?

Honestly the last few years I've been terrified of aging.. I started watching Golden Girls reruns in order and noticed I no longer fear getting older. They are an inspiration that you can still live your best life & have great fun no matter what age. Now I just feel lucky for having 2 really close friends that I've known since High school. We hang out at least once a week & do crafts or go hiking or out to museums/shows/movies/mini vacations.. We joke that someday we'll be the Golden Guys! Especially since my mom is my best friend & all my friends seek her out for advice or to eat one of her amazing home cooked meals. So the 4 of us are well on our way to being Golden Guys.

Actually, Elaine Stritch was up for the Dorothy role long before Bea was considered but had trouble with the ass of a writer. So she went back to NY. . . . . . . .
Glenna Rose (2 months ago)
If you listened to the video, you will hear that Elanie Stritch cut herself out by adding words to the script during audition. That is an auto-kill for any actor.

The only show I know where all 4 leads were truly fantastic. No weak link. And to me, they made the script more funny with their perfect delivery. Side note: I love what Rue did with her character. I can’t imagine Blanch sharp and colder like a Sue Ann Nivens.
Alma Fabela (7 months ago)
OMG!... I am sixty five and saw all of the reruns I don't know how many times, I never get bored of seeing them. They just lift my spirits...

THIS IS MY SHOW!!!! I still watch this in 2018!!!!
Sunshine Baker (7 months ago)
So sad that in their personal life, Bea never liked Betty but Betty admired and liked Bea. Maybe professional jealousy or the fact that Betty was always happy, positive person everyday.
Anna Cottle Cottle (3 months ago)
Maybe she just didn't like her

I loved bright Sue Ann Nivens.

Do you think that Betty wouldn't have been able to take her Blanche out into orbit? Sue Ann lived on Saturn honey.
Brian Henson (8 months ago)
So glad Rue and Betty switched characters ! Can't even imagine them reveresed. Sort of... Betty WAS sexy Due Ann, and Rue was Vivian on Maude, yet, what a difference it would have been to a classic...💝

I'll never forget the episode where Rose says, "What happens when there's only one of us left?" 😭😭😭💔💔💔
Delana Johnson That one gets me too. That it was Rose who said that line and now Betty is the only one left. Eerie.
Glenna Rose (2 months ago)
Almost like she knew - now that it is only Betty White left. Since the oldest character was the youngest actor, that is a bit odd.
Anna Cottle Cottle (3 months ago)

Oooo child. I search for shows like this. Shows of today . . .
Nina Samone (11 months ago)
I absolutely ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ this show!!! Still watch it on hallmark channel, and TVLAND. The most ironic scenes is when Betty Whites line is "what's going to happen when it's only one of us left"?! For that to be HER line, and she is the only one left, I get chills everytime.

Estelle had children early in life both of her children were born in the 1940's and already grown in the 1970's. Rue's son and Bea's two sons are about the same age. Because Bea and Gene had children while they were 39, 40. years old. Mathew Saks was born 1961, but the Bea's youngest son was born 1963. Rue's son Mark Bish was born in the 1960's what year in the 1960's I do not know. I often wonder if Mark, Mathew and Bea's other son are all friends.
ChaplinatMutual (2 years ago)
It's kinda inspiring that Estelle didn't start acting until she was 50.
ChaplinatMutual I've seen the movie Mask several times & never knew Estelle was who played the grandmother.

Poor Betty white is still kicking in, bless her heart
M.J. Leger (3 months ago)
"Poor Betty?"  No way!  She was wonderful in that role as well as others.  She was still performing until recently.  I think she was 97 last month and is doing quite well.  She's had quite a life, no poor Betty about it, and I think she'd be the first one to tell you that, she's always had such a positive attitude!  (You keep on ticking and kicking, Betty, we're all for you, still!)

Bea was brilliant.
Dream Weaver (5 years ago)
So sad that three out of four of these wonderful ladies, who have entertained me, comforted me, and made me laugh from the age of 8 to the age of 36, have passed on.  I will be a wreck when Betty eventually joins them.  I think I know the Golden Girls better than I knew either of my grandmothers.
Michelle (15 days ago)
Did you meet them? Knowing the character is not the same as knowing the person.
Dream Weaver They all had long lives so that should be something. We all die. None of us are getting out alive. I used to be sad about death but since I got sick I can't wait to die. I will be out of misery and suffering.

I'm sure Rue and Betty would have been amazing doing the roles they were originally supposed to do, but I'm glad Betty was Rose and Rue was Blanche.

Jonathon Woodgate (5 years ago)
I just love this show - I grew up watching it... I love the brilliant writing - "You'll know when you hear it come out of your mouth? This isn't a belch, Blanche, this is marriage!"... "Rose, you work at a grief counselling centre, what do you want, comedians?"... "My God, she's got more colours than Benjamin Moore Paints!"...

When I was a young girl I remember seeing Jay Sandrich's name each week I believe of "The Brady Bunch". Everytime I would see his name on whatever show he did, I was always hungry for a sandwich. I just remember him alot when I was young. Now I am fat. I wouldn't be if it wasn't for Jay Sandrich and those darn reruns. LOL!
