Do I wish Bea Arthur was in it too? Absolutely. But her absence didn't mean I didn't enjoy that year.
Honestly, The Golden Girls probably wouldn't have taken off without Bea Arthur. She simply put, had the most presence and star power. Dorothy was also the most complex, the most flawed, and the most human of all the characters. On The Golden Palace, it with all due respect, was in a sense, like watching three second-bananas trying to carry a series.
