The Golden Girls had a penchant for taking on social issues not often discussed in primetime during its era. "Isn't It Romantic?," the second-season episode, featured an out and proud lesbian and nodded to the Sapphic subtext of the series itself.
An update: I still like The Golden Girls... But I am getting tired of variations on only one theme. I expected to see more imagination in the scripts and more than one side to each of these great characters.
Though some of the plots are a bit repetitive and formulaic, the hilarious writing and inspired acting still carries you through.
Not only does the show nail the kind of devastatingly dry shade-based humor that gay viewers tend to flock to, but the show was a beacon in the 1980s for network television dealing with gay themes in even a halfway progressive manner.

Aug 19, 2020Stand out episodes: Episode 2 - arrested for prostitution, Episode 4 - mean old neighbour, Episode 12 - Angela comes to visit, Episode 22 - the hunk named Jake
Aug 01, 2020One of the best-written sitcoms ever. An absolute gold standard for the form, while also being a departure at the time. Great show.
