The Golden Girls: Season 1 (1985 - 1986)



Critic Consensus: Worth its weight in laughs, The Golden Girls' first season brings together an outrageously talented cast of television veterans and a raunchy sensibility that proves youth needn't be wasted on the young.

Critic Reviews for The Golden Girls Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

The Golden Girls is the funniest and smartest new comedy of the season, and it promises to be the vehicle for Harris' best work yet.

Golden Girls has quite a few things going for it, most importantly a very strong cast and one of the best producers in television.

Golden Girls proved that, shockingly, as long as you write good characters you can make a good show about just about anybody.

The content is fairly edgy. It deals with serious senior and women's issues but the comedy is fairly universal.

There's a lot of heart to The Golden Girls, and unfortunately that's when it seems to lose its steam. I actually enjoyed watching the episodes until they fell into the perpetual sit-com trap of trying to have a "very special episode."

Adult, literate, witty, poignant, funny. And, oh yes, honest.

This funny, sexually charged series shows viewers that life not only continues after 50 but is actually rich, fulfilling, and, most of all, fun -- especially when you have good friends to share it with.

Through it all, the show has a lot of heart and you can tell that these four women care deeply for each other.

Not only does The Golden Girls offer meaningful portrayals of women in their post-middle-age years, but, as a bonus, it's one of those TV rarities, a comedy that's funny. Very funny.

Golden Girls at least makes you happy to be alive in front of a television set, and that's not an accomplishment to be sneezed at.
