I am a huge Golden Girls fan. It's a hilarious, well-written and impeccably acted show, with Bea Arthur delivering her desert-dry lines with some of the best comic timing I've ever witnessed in a sit com. It is not an old fuddy duddy series, either. It was a timeless, hilarious show. Just look at the pop culture Renaissance being experienced by Betty White, the sole surviving Girl. My dad and I used to watch it when I was a kid, so when the repeats started airing on Lifetime when I moved out on my own, I used to watch the show as it reminded me of home and it was then that I began to truly appreciate the humor of the show! I love metal. I love dark, bloody horror films and Tim Burton fare. But I love love love The Golden Girls.
That's why this news enthralls me! Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment proudly announces the highly anticipated debut of The Golden Girls: 25th Anniversary Complete Collection on DVD November 9. Seven years of laughter, tears, friendship and fun culminate in this limited edition 21-disc commemorative set that allows fans to relive all the great moments of one of TV's most beloved shows in one side-splitting new collection. Packaged in a fantastic, collectible replica of Golden Girl Sophia's wicker purse, the fabulous new release includes every hilarious DVD bonus feature from each season, and other collectibles including all-new character-themed playing cards, showcasing each of the show's lovable, off-beat stars. 21 discs is a lot of Golden Girls and I will cherish every moment.
The Golden Girls, which originally aired from 1985 through 1992, follows four friends – the sassy and smart Dorothy (Beatrice Arthur), naïve Rose (Betty White), vivacious and overly sexual Blanche (Rue McClanahan) and sarcastic Sophia (Estelle Getty) – who move in together in Miami. Their uproarious relationships with each other and the comical men in their lives have made the show hugely popular with fans of all ages. These four mismatched, outrageous women certainly give 'Grandma' a whole new meaning, keeping audiences laughing with their endearing friendships and delightful chemistry.
Releasing just in time for the holidays, The Golden Girls: 25th Anniversary Complete Collection allows the legion of fans to relive great moments including Sophia's hysterical run-in with the Pope; Dorothy being wooed by the one-and-only Sonny Bono; Rose trying out sky-diving to snag a guy; Blanche mistaking menopause for pregnancy, and so much more! The series includes a who's who of fantastic guest stars including Burt Reynolds, Leslie Nielsen, Merv Griffin, Alex Trebek Sonny Bono, Debbie Reynolds, Jeffrey Tambor, Peter Graves and even a young George Clooney (as a Miami cop who saves the day)!
Hello, friends of Amy Sciarretto, you know what's on my wish list for the 2010 holiday season? Slayer vinyl and The Golden Girls: 25th Anniversary Complete Collection!
