That's fine. For you. I never found GOLDEN GIRLS funny (although every openly homosexual male I've ever known found it screamingly hilarious and still does). As I said, it was, like most Susan Harris sitcoms, especially from the '80s, way too contrived and stiff.The Golden Girls is the reason I heard about Maude. The Golden Girls is my favorite classic sitcom, and I personally feel it has a better feel than Arthur's Maude. I like that The Golden Girls is an ensemble, whereas Maude is usually centered entirely around the titular character, with some episodes featuring her in a solo outing. I love Bea Arthur, but her performance as Dorothy is better and the show is better overall.
Such that I couldn't bring myself to watch it -- which really says something, as I liked all of the actresses (except Estelle Getty).
