In spite of all the hype about "The Golden Girls," we find the show to be mediocre. My friends and I watched it the first few times and then gave up. The women all represent personality extremes, and all are pretty ridiculous, especially the acid-tongued old crone. Why couldn't at least one of them be charming and normal? Must we look forward to being cartoon characters? The show strays far from its announced intention of depicting older women as attractive.
