The Golden Girls: The Complete Fifth Season

A well written good at Share house living of the mature set. This is the fifth season of  seven which ran from 1985 to 1992 and won eleven Emmys and four Golden Globes for its sharp writing and great comedic acting from it lead actresses. 

The Golden Girls' premise is simple 3 best friends Rose (Betty White), Blanche, (Rue McClanahan) Dorothy (Bea Arthur), and her mother Sophia (Estelle Getty), move into a house together in Miami. On the surface it appears to be a nice sitcom about four single 50+ women but the strange array of conversations and topical subject matter prove otherwise.

The series works as each character is unique and has a role in the group dynamic: Rose is ditsy country girl, Blanche is a promiscuous  southern belle, Dorothy is an intelligent school teacher, and while her mother Sophia is the wisest, she is also the craziest of the group. The four dynamic characters provide balance to the storylines; No one single character dominates the storyline s, which also shows great ensemble work from the four lead actresses. 

The audio com entry provides interesting anecdotes from Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Bea Arthur   each providing a  track each on selected episodes. 

This Series is highly rewarding in terms its writing (both comic and dramatic) and acting. Well worth the effort for comedy fans.
