TWO THINGS ITALIANS DON'T DO, LIE ABOUT PIZZA & FILE A TAX

"Thank goodness we diehard fans don't have to wait over 6 months for The Golden Girls fourth season to be released on dvd!!! I noticed this particular season the character of Sophia really shines. She competes with Blanche over a man, gets a pizza commercial (too funny!), gets laid and married (in that order), and is leading a full productive secret life! Way to go Sophia!!
Although I love Sophia dearly, Dorothy is my favorite golden girl! Beatrice Arthur can make me laugh out loud just from her priceless facial expressions! I can't wait to purchase the Golden Girls intimate portrait dvd on November 15th because I missed it when aired on Lifetime. I'm totally looking forward to spending Valentine's Day with a box of chocolates and The Golden Girls Season 4!!! Okay! Okay! a hot lover will be nice too!!! Now only if the powers at be will finally release Maude on dvd!!!"
Bea Arthur Rocks

"I LOVE "The Golden Girls." All the characters are so funny, and imaginative. But my favorite is Dorothy (Bea Arthur). Just looking at her could make even the most serious person start cracking up.
During the Fourth Season "The Golden Girls" were at the top of their game. It doesn't get much better than this.
It's very sad that sitcoms no longer capture the warmth or comedy that "The Golden Girls" always had. Why can't the broadcast networks get their act together and make TV like this today?"
Hope They release them all soon!

"I think that the Golden Girls season 4 is going to be awesome I can't wait to buy it because there are a bunch of episodes that I havent seen on the 1988-1989 series. I think most of all I want to see "Yes,We Have No Havanas" because I saw it once but don't remember it so maybe this season will get me caught up on the only last few episodes I didn't see on television. I also hope they put out seasons 5,6, and 7 on DVD soon also plus the Golden Palace so I can continue to buy my favorite television show of all time!!!!!"
Classic comedy - The Golden Girls

"I am 29 years of age. I started watching "The Golden Girls" in my early 20s. I still don't understand what drew me to this show. Probably because my parents wouldn't let me watch it as a young child. During college, living at home, my younger sister and I, who shared a room, would stay up watching the reruns on Lifetime Television till midnight. We call each other "G-Girls." The comedy is quick and snappy. I especially love the sarcasm and glimpses of love between Dorothy and Sophia. Long live the stories from Sophia! I don't know why I started watching this show. I do not watch it to make fun of old people, rather, it gives me hope that life doesn't stop just because you get a few gray hairs. This show proves that the golden years truly are golden!"
