Description by OLDIES.com:
Travel to Miami for a visit with the original girls gone wild, "The Golden Girls"! Beatrice Arthur, Rue McClanahan, Betty White, and Estelle Getty are back for Season Five of this multiple Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning comedy. These four young-at-heart ladies couldn't be more different, but they stick together through thick and thin.
Enjoy every side-splitting episode of Season Five in this laugh-packed DVD box set, complete with exclusive bonus material. The hilarious adventures include Sophia going on a bulk-buying binge, Rose and Blanche joining a protest to save some dolphins, and Dorothy dating a real clown. The girls are also joined by classic guest stars, including Dick Van Dyke, and they just might be paid a visit by the Commander in Chief himself! It?s off-the-wall entertainment at its finest from the gals who wrote the recipe for great comedy.
One of the most popular television shows of the 1980s, THE GOLDEN GIRLS was created by television writer Susan Harris (SOAP). The show centered on four elderly single women living in the same house together, all played by sitcom veterans: cynically sensible Dorothy (Bea Arthur), sweet but gullible Rose (Betty White), raunchy Blanche (Rue McClanahan), and Dorothy's outspoken mother, Sophia (Estelle Getty). The program was nominated for many Emmy and Golden Globe awards, and was consistently in Nielsen's top 10 for its entire run, garnering both critical acclaim and public popularity. It also proved daring for its time: not only did it tackle sensitive political issues, but it was a prime-time show whose main characters were much older than television's desired demographic. This release contains the entire fifth season.
