Travel to Miami for a visit with the original girls gone wild, The Golden Girls! Beatrice Arthur, Rue McClanahan, Betty White, and Estelle Getty are back for Season Five of this multiple Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning comedy. These four young-at-heart ladies couldn't be more different, but they stick together through thick and thin. Enjoy every side-splitting episode of Season Five in this laugh-packed DVD box set, complete with exclusive bonus material. The hilarious adventures include Sophia going on a bulk-buying binge, Rose and Blanche joining a protest to save some dolphins and Dorothy dating a real clown. The girls are also joined by classic guest stars including Dick Van Dyke, and they just might be paid a visit by the Commander in Chief himself! It's off-the-wall entertainment at its finest from the gals who wrote the recipe for great comedy.
It's a good sign when a new year begins with Jeffrey Tambor The Larry Sanders Show, Arrested Development and ends with Harry Shearer Spinal Tap, The Simpsons. Tambor shows up as Dorothy's doctor in the The Golden Girls two-part fifth season premiere "Sick and Tired". Unfortunately, he isn't able to determine why she's feeling run down, so she pays a visit to Empty Nest's Dr. Weston Richard Mulligan, who returns a few episodes later. Blanche Rue McClanahan, meanwhile, decides to become a romance novelist, despite the fact that she can't write. Dorothy Bea Arthur will eventually find out she has chronic fatigue syndrome an affliction shared by writer/creator Susan Harris, who'll soon exit the show, while the flighty Blanche will retire from writing as suddenly as she took it up. Then she'll get the news that her daughter, Rebecca, has decided to become a single mother--via artificial insemination. Blanche is aghast. As for Rose, she'll get a new job as the assistant to a consumer affairs reporter and find second love with professor Miles Webber Harold Gould. Other guests during the 1989-1990 season include Dick Van Dyke "Love Under the Big Top", Robert Culp "Like the Beep Beep Beep of the Tom-Tom", and a pre-Law & Order Jerry Orbach "Cheaters". Then there's Shearer "The President's Coming! The President's Coming!", who provides the voice for the first George Bush. Also, Marc Cherry, the man behind Desperate Housewives, receives his first writing credit, while Mark Moses--now best known as the murderous Rex--appears as Blanche's stepson. Unlike previous sets, this collection includes commentary from Arthur, McClanahan, and White. --Kathleen C Fennessy
