View Full Version : The Golden Girls

I have been watching some Mary Tyler-Moore Show reruns lately and I've seen two episodes that were duplicated on The Golden Girls. I think it's funny that they brought those storylines back - both with Betty White in them. Strange. I don't know why I'm posting this, I guess I just don't think Agent 86 would be very interested in my musings.

Which episodes? I watch The Golden Girls every weekend.

Two episodes. The one where Rose dates the really short guy (I want to say midget but I would be bludgeoned to death by the PC police). Mary had the same experience with dating a small man. And the episode where Rose and Blanche become Big Sisters to the two girls. Mary and Sue Ann did the exact same episode. I will keep looking for more! The Golden Girls episode where they hire the Italian painter who doesn't leave is also a throw-back to an old Dick Van Dyke Show episode - with the same actor playing the painter! I watch too much TV.

LOL! The episode with the short guy was on Sunday. And I loved that episode on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. I remember when it first came on and how tickled my mom and grandma got while watching it.

Isn't it sad that TV comedies are no longer funny?
Back in the days of The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls, I watched them all the time.
Now, I don't watch them at all.

I agree. I can't get into any of the comedies these days. I did watch "The Middle" for a little bit, but lost interest after a couple of seasons. I watch either "Friends" or "The Golden Girls" every night while getting ready for bed and still laugh even though I have seen the episodes over and over again.

I have the whole series on DVD. Haven't seen it in a while.

It seems to me that a lot of sitcoms these days are basically variations on the "Friends" theme.

The Big Bang Theory is the only sitcom I regularly watch. Blackish can be funny but it's been too preachy lately. Modern Family - meh - I still watch it but I don't go out of my way to see it. I have recently found Mike and Molly in reruns. It's pretty funny. For me, nothing compares to The Dick Van Dyke Show. I still laugh every time. Perfect humor.

"Life In Pieces" is hilarious! Can't say it loud enough: HILARIOUS!

We also watch "New Girl" -- a "Friends" style group-of-strangers-in-an-apartment comedy, but without the soap-style drama.

I've heard that Life In Pieces is funny. I will have to check it out.
