My four favorite girls.
Verified purchase
This is one of my favorite sitcoms. I felt like they were so far ahead of their time, especially for their generation too (these girls were all born before WWII) because they are even older than the Baby Boomer generation. In this season, the episode where Stan and Dorothy gets married again was supposed to be a series finale instead because Bea Arthur wasn't sure if she wanted to return or not; they had to switch the end with Dorothy walking out on Stan after she decided that she would return for a final season. It's kind of like with Elementary, the last episode of season 6 closed it up perfectly, but then they had one more season to do. What I love is that this show didn't "jump the shark" until after the series ended (the Golden Palace definitely couldn't live up to the same expectation).

The Girls!!! My Sisters, Friends, Aunties and Neighbors! I Love Them!
Verified purchase
The “Girls” are like my sisters, friends, aunties and neighbors all at once. They are living the life that every woman wants to live in as they move into late senior years; one filled with friendship, vitality, community engagement, SEX, love, romance, companionship and LAUGHTER! I giggle myself to sleep every night with a 20-minute timer on my Golden Girls. They are truly an important part of my life as I’ve been watching them since the 90’s. Home videos of my babies show Golden Girls playing incessantly in the background - and my children are now in college! Like me, they know the episodes by heart and when we watch the baby videos, they’ll say, “Oh that’s the episode when Rose was being stalked by Myra.”

The Last Good Season?
Verified purchase
Some Golden Girls fans consider the fifth season (1989-90) the last of the good seasons because things became jumbled with new production teams being brought in for the last seasons but season six more than holds it's own with the proceeding five. With such great moments as Blanche delivering her granddaughter and then using said granddaughter to try and land a man who mistakenly thinks Blanche is its mother. Martin Mull playing a reclusive man Dorothy reaches out to while helping Sophia with her Meals on Wheels program with hilarious results. Also Blanche finds out her long lost Mammy had an affair with her deceased father in "Wham Bam Thank You Mammy." Rose meets her father who much to everyone's surprise is in fact an earthling in the episode "Once in Saint Olaf" and his choice to remain with god instead of having a relationship with his child causes confliction and some anger for Rose.

Midseason contains one of Sophia's rare emotional moments in the episode entitled Ebbtide's Revenge in which Sophia's son Phil passes away and Sophia goes through a myriad of emotions and anger over Phil deciding to live life as a cross-dresser, which has led Sophia to face much guilt and potential shame over the years. Sophia has many golden comedy moments highlighted by Sophia joining a convent following the death of her nun friend and Stand by Your Man where Sophia plays Blanche's grandmother on a date with a disabled man including a hilarious southern accent.

The girls march on!
Verified purchase
After five seasons, the pattern remains the same, but rather than becoming formulaic, "The Golden Girls" continue to delight viewers thanks to the excellent writing and the brilliant comedic ensemble. Dorothy, Sophia, Blanche and Rose have weathered many a storm, and by Season 6, they - and we - are ready for whatever life throws their way, from Blanche's dating crises, to Dorothy's on-again, off-again relationship with Stan. The girls continue to be dumbfounded by Rose's quirky life in St. Olaf's, and Sophia (and some of her relatives from Sicily) provide a zany dose of sound advice wrapped up in hilarity. The stand-out actress in this penultimate season is Bea Arthur, whose husky voice, slow double-take and deadpan delivery is the foundation that makes the over-the-top antics of Betty White, Estelle Getty and Rue McLanahan sparkle. Highly recommended for devotees of great casting and classic TV comedy.

One of the things I like is the fact that I was able to purchase digital copies. I was at home quarantine during covid and started a Golden Girls Marathon I purchased all seasons and can watch them at my leisure

If you are a Golden Girl's Fan, you cannot go wrong with this DVD.

This particular season's DVD has a Bonus Feature that is far better than the prior DVD's. At the end of the DVD is a nice conversation with Betty White, Rue McLanahan and some of their genius writers. This was particularly interesting to see how they act "outside of the character".

Interestingly enough, Estelle Ghetty was not included. I think she must be in progressively bad health according to Lifetime. Bea Arthur is not included either. She must be in bad shape lately.

Anyway, sone of my favorite episodes included in this Season Six DVD were:

The one where Blanche's Mammy comes back, the one where the girls put on "Henny Penny" for the kids, and finally the episode where Blanche helps Sofia with a makeover and some advice to spark her dating life.

I would reccommend the DVD to any GG Fan.

"When "The Golden Girls" Jumped The Shark"
Verified purchase
To many ardent "Golden Girls" fans the sixth season is the one in which the series "jumped the shark" in that the show changed both in story content and direction. Gone since the end of the fourth season were the show's wonderful writers and at the end of the fifth season beloved director Terry Hughes decided to hang up his dirctor's hat and do feature films. The absence of those two important ingredients are evident in this 26 episode boxset. The stories just weren't as funny as in previous years and the cast, most notably Bea Arthur, seemed to be running through their scenes. The sixth season is alright in terms of good sitcom work, but after viewing these shows the shine was off the gold so to speak. Buy this season to finish off your "Golden Girls" collection, but if your looking to purchase excellent "Golden Girls" shows pick up the first four seasons. The only bonus in this set is a minor interview with Betty white, Rue McClanahan, and others discussing the series. The series finished at #10 for the year.

Wonderful show & actors
Verified purchase
I purchased several of the complete seasons of The Golden Girls for my parents and they have enjoyed every one of them. This was one of the best shows on television. The writing and acting were excellent. It's unfortunate you don't find talent like this any longer. There are far too many reality shows on tv now, which doesn't take any acting ability.

I purchased this complete season from Amazon, along with many other items over the years, and have never had one complaint about their site. Keep up the good work Amazon!
