This past Sunday marks the 29th anniversary of The Golden Girls.
Premiering on September 14th, 1985, The Golden Girls centered on four post menopausal sixty something women sharing a house in Miami.
Substitute teacher Dorothy (Bea Arthur), her nursing home refugee mother, Sophia (Estelle Getty), Minnesota raised Rose (Betty White) all lived with their friend and landlady, Southern Belle Blanche (Rue McClanahan). Staying on the air until 1992, The Golden Girls was the first show that I remember where the protagonists were women of a certain age. It was honest, poignant and just plain funny. There was a truth about being a woman, whether she was 16 or 60. It was Sex and And City well before Sex and City.
I love this show and the reruns never fail to entertain me.
