The Golden Girls - Season Seven

"At long last, the seventh and final season of "The Golden Girls" will finally be out on DVD. It's been great watching the first six seasons of this truly wonderful sitcom on DVD, shown just like it did when it first aired on NBC. True, there are a couple of episodes from seasons four, five, and six that featured some brief editing while seasons one, two, and three were pretty much edit free. The brief editing was a little disappointing, but nothing like the hack job that Lifetime has done to the episodes that have aired on the cable network for years.
SEASON SEVEN (1991-92) Season Seven of "The Golden Girls" is just a notch below Season Six. Season Six was a pretty good season, though not quite as good as the first five seasons. Season Seven was in my opinion the weakest season of the show's seven year run, but that doesn't make it a completely bad season. There were episodes that made me laugh out loud; there were episodes that were marginally funny; and there were episodes that weren't as funny as they should've been. But the show made a very strong comeback to end the series with the last two episodes: the next-to-last episode (a two-parter) and of course the final one hour episode that ended the series' seven year run.
The best episodes of Season Seven include: the girls going on a murder mystery weekend and Dorothy becoming a detective when a real murder occurs and Blanche is the prime suspect; Dorothy hiring a nurse to care for Sophia while Blanche enters her granddaughter into a kids beauty pageant; Stan going into therapy in trying to help him forget about Dorothy; a hurricane hitting Miami while Dorothy's sister Gloria visits; the girls traveling to Atlanta so that Blanche can make an attempt to save her grandmother's plantation; Sophia starts to date a man she met through the personals column only to be distracted by his sister who goes with them everywhere on their dates; Dorothy starts dating one of her high school teachers, while she and Blanche go on a talk-show that Rose is working for to talk about what it's like living together as roommates, only to find out at the beginning of the show that they are mistaken as lesbians, which infuriates them in the process; Dorothy trying to get on the game show "Jeopardy!"; and Blanche inviting Dorothy out for a night on the town at Blanche's favorite bar, and Dorothy becoming the center of attention with her terrific singing talent.
And of course there are those final two episodes, which work brilliantly not just for the laughs, but for the drama too. The two-part next-to-last episode, titled "Home Again, Rose" is an episode that combines big laughs with high drama. In this episode, Rose suffers a heart attack that requires serious open heart surgery. It's one of the most seriously dramatic episodes of "The Golden Girls", but it does contain some upbeat hilarious moments. The high comic point of the episode: Rose's dream that she, Dorothy, and Blanche all have their heads frozen. This scene is a comic masterpiece as the three ladies look absolutely ridiculous with their heads sticking up through the kitchen table simultaneously. And then there's the final episode: "One Flew Out of the Cuckoo's Nest", in which Dorothy finds true love with Blanche's Uncle Lucas (played by Leslie Nielsen), and in the end decides to marry him, which in the process breaks up the old gang. The final scene of "The Golden Girls" is so touching that it brought a tear to my eye when it aired back on May 9, 1992. It was a wonderful ending to a wonderful show.
Before the beginning of the seventh season of "The Golden Girls", Beatrice Arthur announced that the seventh season would be her last. She apparently had had enough, and wanted to move on to other things. One major change the show had to endure for Season Seven was a new time slot. For its first six seasons "The Golden Girls" aired on NBC in the same time slot: Saturday nights - 9 p.m. Eastern/8 p.m. Central, and all six seasons the show finished each season in the Nielsen Top 10. For Season Seven, "The Golden Girls" continued to air on Saturday nights, but got moved up an hour to 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central. This move backfired, and the show fell out of the Nielsen Top 10 for the first time in the show's history. As a result, the show ended after its seventh season. But it didn't end for Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty. They went on to reprise their roles in the "Golden Girls" sequel show "The Golden Palace."
For its final season, "The Golden Girls" didn't fare well at the Emmys. It only received three nominations for its last season, and for the first and only time it did not receive a nomination as Best Comedy Series. Betty White and Estelle Getty were nominated again as Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively. White and Getty were nominated for all seven seasons. The other nomination it got for Season Seven was for a technical category which it won. So for its seven seasons "The Golden Girls" finished with a total of 68 Emmy nominations and 11 Emmy wins. Very impressive.
"The Golden Girls" always has and always will be my favorite show. Some great shows have preceded it ("Soap", "All in the Family"); other great shows have followed it ("Desperate Housewives", "House"). But nothing will ever top "The Golden Girls". It's the best TV show ever made. "
Wow finally to own all the episodes of The Golden Girls!

"This is my favorite season because they go to that murder mystery weekend in this one and they get their heads frozen in Rose's dream. This season is hilarious and it also includes Leslie Neilson! Like with season 4 last year I plan to pick up a box of chocolates and my Golden Girls and enjoy Valentine's day!
I'll get my head frozen if they release Golden Palace the complete show and Maude! Oh and maybe they will release that t.v. movie "Once in a Lifetime" with Betty White where she gets a chance to bungie jump and fall in love with Leslie Neilson!"
Truly one of the best sitcoms ever!!

"I have to say that I have bought all six seasons and I can watch this show over and over again and it always brings a smile to my face. I cant wait to get the final season on DVD I have all the episodes on video recored from reruns on the lifetime network and let me just say there is so much more on the dvds, lifetime had cut out so much to make room for commercials. I think season seven has got to be the funniest of season of all. I would like to see the Golden Palace released on DVD to kind of finish up the Golden Girls series. Anyone that is thinking of buying this DVD collection...DO IT! Believe me you will not regret it."

"What can I say? Too bad we can't give it more than 5 stars!! I am so very glad the release of the final season is coming quickly. We own all 6 seasons so far and continue to watch them everyday in re-runs.
A special note to all of you true Golden friends.
Take close attention in the final episode when Dorothy marries Lucas. the ending credits is a gem which has been edited these days on TV. We get to see the classic closing piece (which I am sure most of you remember) of the picture Rose took and it lies on the table developing, our girls, cheesecake and all.
The perfect ending to a special and most beloved show.
