Hubby and I have been Netflix-ing The Golden Girls and we're almost finished with Season 3. I metioned it on facebook a few weeks ago and a friend was surprised I'd admit it. I'm still not completely sure why but I have a guess or two.That show cracks me up. In fact just hearing the theme song makes me all giddy inside. Still, even after hearing it several dozen times recently. (I've included it below for your hearing pleasure.)
What's even more intriguing to me though was that I remember watching the show a few times as a young child (I had to have been seven or younger). Interesting considering the main plot lines.
Of course I couldn't help but imdb a few stats about the show. I love that fabulous database of answers/trivia. We are always checking that site. (Maybe this is why I love love love Xbox's Scene It games.) Just the other day my kids were watching Elmo in Grouchland and hubby says, "You have to go imdb Princess Bride and cross it with that movie, I think Inigo Montoya was one of the voices." Sure enough he was right.
Ok, enough with the tangents.
We got a little curious and wondered how old the ladies really were...
Want to take a quick guess....
