An Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Comedy Series in its very first year, THE GOLDEN GIRLS has become a landmark in television history and an all-time fan favorite. Beatrice Arthur, Rue McClanahan, Betty White, and Estelle Getty star as four South Florida seniors sharing a house, their dreams, and a whole lot of cheesecake. Bright, promiscuous, clueless, and hilarious, these lovely mismatched ladies form the perfect circle of friends. Experience all 25 laugh-packed episodes of Season One in this spectacular 3-disc set, including the series pilot and an exclusive bonus feature that offers a whole new look at the show. It's all the provocative fun and entertainment you remember ... and so much more.
Launched during the neon-lit 1980s, The Golden Girls shed light on a side of Miami ignored by Miami Vice. In other words, no drugs, no murder--just four women of "a certain age," spending their golden years in the sun. Like the theme, "Thank You for Being a Friend," the long-running sitcom was about friendship not crime. As for the "girls," they were tart-tongued Dorothy Beatrice Arthur, former farm girl Rose Betty White, Southern belle Blanche Rue McClanahan, and Dorothy's salty Sicilian mother Sophia Estelle Getty. All were widows, with the exception of the divorced Dorothy. Created by Emmy-winning producer Susan Harris Soap, The Golden Girls re-ignited the careers of 1970s TV veterans Arthur All in the Family, Maude and White The Mary Tyler Moore Show. At the same time, it made stars of McClanahan who co-starred on Maude, by playing a comic version of A Streetcar Named Desire's Blanche Dubois, and the scene-stealing Getty, made to look older than her actual age she and Arthur were born the same year.

Notable guests to lend their talents to the first season include Star Trek: Voyager's Robert Picardo "The Operation", Alice's Polly Holliday "Blind Ambitions", and WKRP in Cincinnati's Gordon Jump "Big Daddy". In addition, Harold Gould Rhoda, who appears in "Rose the Prude," would return as a different recurring character five years later.

The Golden Girls ran for seven seasons and spawned spin-off The Golden Palace without Arthur and a British version called The Brighton Belles. By the end of its run in 1992, it had garnered numerous awards, including two Emmys for best comedy series. In addition, each of the four actresses received a well-deserved Emmy for her efforts. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
