Let me just start by saying that The Golden Girls is without a doubt one of the funniest and most witty comedies of all time. It is definately a classic comedy that will be around for a long time. I am a HUGE Golden Girls fan and I think it would be awesome if this forum could be used as a means of discussing Golden Girls. Whether it be the release of the DVDs or just remembering classic episodes, lets get out the cheesecake and start chatting about all things Golden Girls.

I am very much looking forward to Season 6 arriving on DVD November 14th. (I wish it were included in the Disney Movie Rewards program, but unfortunately it is not). Soon my Golden Girls DVD collection will be complete. I love how each DVD box set comes in a different color. They look great stacked next to one another in my DVD collection: Yellow, Blue, Pink, Green, Orange, and season 6 will be purple. I wonder what color the 7th and final season will be? What do you thinK?

The Golden Girls is my favorite television show of all time! I have loved it, ever since I first saw it, back when it was first on television. I'm so excited about the release of Season 6. I feel that Season 7 will more than likely be red. Of course, it could be any color they want, just as long as they release it!

What is your all time favorite episode??

Mine is the one where they go to California to be on "Grab That Dough"!!! That episode to this day is still laugh-out-loud funny, I love it!!

Game show host: Finish this popular phrase, "Better late than..."
Blanche (rings in and says) "PREGNANT!"

I don't think I could pinpoint my favorite episode of all time, but my favorite moment of all time is this: (from "Big Daddy's Little Girl", Episode 6, Season 2)

Dorothy: Hi, Rose. Tell me, did you get a chance to play with those lyrics I gave you?
Rose: Yeah, listen to this!
(Rose plays some jazzy chords)
Dorothy: Hey, that sounds great! Let's take it from the top.
Rose: From the top, oh, that sounds so musical!
Dorothy: Tickle the ivories, Rose.
Rose: Cootchie-cootchie-cootchie-coo!
(Rose laughs, Dorothy stares.)
Dorothy: Rose, PLAY OR DIE!
(Rose begins playing as Dorothy sings)
Dorothy: Miami is nice, so I'll say it twice! Miami is nice, Miami is nice, Miami is...wait. Wait a minute, wait a minute. You put in an extra "Miami is nice".
Rose: I had to, it hurts the music if you don't put it in.
Dorothy: Yeah, but the lyrics don't make any sense. I mean it says, "Miami is NICE, so I'll say it TWICE."
Rose: Oh, I see your point. Well, what about this? "Miami is NICE, so I'll say it THRICE."
Dorothy: Who the hell says thrice?
Rose: It's a word.
Dorothy: So is intrauterine. It does not belong in a song.
(Dorothy leaves, as Rose begins to play)
Rose: Miami...you're cuter than...an intrauterine...

Ha ha!! YES, yes, yes, that is definately a classic Golden Girls moment. :lol:

I just saw the one the other day where they are breeding minks in the garage, meanwhile Blanche finds out she's going through menopause. The part where Dorothy is explaining to Rose what spanish fly is, is absolutely histarical!

The Golden Girls is my ALLTIME favorite sitcom. I unfortunately haven't bought any of the season sets yet. :( I just have so many darn DVDs on my wishlist, and the TV season sets are always so expensive.

Anyway...all four of them crack me up. Rose is too much! I can't wait to own these on DVD. I am going to go bump them up to the top of my wishlist now.

Of course its not the same, but it had its moments. and it does have the 2 episodes in which Dorothy comes back! The only things I hated about Golden Palace was that Oliver kid and what they did with the Rose/Miles story... grr...

As with any other DVDs if you buy them on the first day they come out, they are usually cheaper. First day Golden Girls sets are usually as low as $28, but if you wait they go back up to around $40. I would recommend getting Season 6 on the day it comes out, then going back and buying the others.

I agree. While The Golden Palace was not as good, in my opinion, as The Golden Girls, it certainly did have it's moments. For example, Rose became a stronger person. We saw the determination of all three "Girls" to move on, and begin a new chapter in their lives. I also agree with xxhplinkxx. I didn't really care about the kid, Oliver, and I absolutely HATED that they ended Rose and Mile's relationship. It just didn't feel right.

I do hope they will release The Golden Palace on DVD. It's only one season, and it would be a great addition to have, as part of The Golden Girls legacy!

Yeah, I guess I will agree, although it was not nearly as great as the Golden Girls, The Golden Palace certainly did have some great moments. The 2 episodes in which Dorothy comes back are as funny as some of the best Golden Girls episodes.

So Betty White is turning 99 in two days! :o I'm so happy she's still around, and I hope she's happy and healthy. <3

Not to be morbid: I'm not sure who of the four I thought would last the longest, but I suppose White makes sense. She has a real positive energy about her, always has. :P The best indicator of that is how close a person is to animals. McClanahan was so vivacious in real life (as on camera) though. It's just sad because who would've expected Estelle Getty to go firstwhen she was the youngest of the cast. :( And how she, Arthur, and McClanahan went almost one year one after the other. Arthur was always my favorite of the four, although I liked them all.

I still remember growing up watching The Golden Girls on Lifetime when I'd get home from school (I can't remember if that was before or after Toonami would come on because you know Sailor Moon got first priority). I always enjoyed watching their Intimate Portraits episodes, too. :) It's hard for me to watch re-runs on TV these days because the show is mutilated in edits. They seem to ruin the timing of the best moments (like Dorothy's speech during second scene in the murder mystery episode) or take out the best part of a scene (Rose muttering to herself that Blanche is a hypersexual bitch :lol: ). I just put the DVDs on these days.

EDIT: Ah, no, Getty was not the youngest. I'm not sure where I picked that up from. She was second youngest after McClanahan. I was just glancing over their Wikipedia pages. Apparently as part of her HIV / AIDS activism, Getty helped open a hospice in NC that's only an hour's drive from where I am and in the city where I went to college! :)
