Thank you for being a friend

I love this 1980s show so much, and so so so so adore all of the four characters, so I'm watching it again for the second time.  It's about 4 women living under the same roof, and the setting was also in the 80s.
Now I get why this show was so popular and how all of them won the Emmy Award throughout the series' entire run. Because it is not typical! Most of these days' TV shows are only interesting in the first or second runs, but the storyline is just plain and it gets old after that. But Golden Girls is simply outstanding, with different conflicts in each episode that could just tangle with one another in a sweet way. The synical mother daughter, Sophia (Estelle Getty) and Dorothy (Bea Arthur), the naive Rose (Betty White, she is the only one that is still alive as of today!), who always cracked me up each time she told the story of her hometown, St. Olaf and how the rest responded to her story, and the bold and naughty Blanche (Rue McClanahan), cute southern accent and was so used to talk about her sex life, and how she seduced men and never admitted that she was in her 50s (she tent to refer herself as 'woman in her 40s' and the rest of the girls as 'old people').  Estelle (who played Dorothy's mom) was actually younger than Bea and Betty in real life.

Despite the lightness in its storyline and setting, I could never get enough of these girls!
