Critic Reviews for The Golden Girls Season 2

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.

More funny stuff from those great ladies in a Miami retirement community - Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty. They are all talented comic actresses, and this is a funny series.

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.
