Four mature single women share a house in Miami in a long-running ensemble sitcom that's enjoyed a resurgent popularity among younger viewers since repeats began airing on Lifetime. A two-time Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy Series, the smart Susan Harris-created sitcom dealt wittily (and often movingly) with aspects of friendship and aging, and earned awards for all four of its principal actresses.
Almost 30 years after it began airing, this iconic 80s sitcom still holds up. The barbs still sting, the friendship still warms, and only the costumes (and, OK, the pop culture references) seem dated. Brava, girls!
Such a warm, funny show with lovable characters that are delightful to watch. Dorothy is hilarious, Blanche is full of life, and Rose is as sweet as she is naive. Entertaining, insightful and heart-warming.
I don't know what it was about this show but it will always stick out in my mind as one of the funniest shows ever. The cast was amazing (Betty white still is), the writing was consistently above par and the characters themselves were instantly lovable. It confounds me that a show about four ladies of a certain age living together is one I would watch, let alone be proud to call a favourite but this one I would highly recommend
