Just out of curiosity, why does Logo like "The Golden Girls" so much? All four women were clearly shown to be heterosexual. Were there homosexual characters on the show I'm not aware of?

Don't quote me on this, but I heard that Shows with strong female leads tend to have a fairly large following of gay men. I have absolutely no idea why.

It's because the writing on female-centric shows tends to be more sophisticated and witty (see also "Designing Women") that it appeals to gay male sensibilities more than something basic and primitive ("The Three Stooges"--a show primarily popular with straight males; or "Married With Children" which is heavy on T&A humour).

I wasn't a fan of the later shows. The best episodes were the early ones,particularly one where Blanche called Sophia a "raisin in sneakers". I'm sure someone will know instantly the episode to which I'm alluding. Are these early episodes available free anywhere or are all these references to click on simply a means of extorting money from the general public?

Well if they love Golden Girls so much then I say add Empty Nest. Seems like a good fit, with all the Golden Girls love and Kristie McNichol. Why Not.

I've wondered about that too. That's an excellent explanation, Kasey.

Or maybe it was because the men of the show were made to look stupid,criminal or just plain over-sexed..

I agree! Being gay myself, I've always been drawn to female centered shows, i.e., The Facts of Life, The Golden Girls, The Nanny, Bewitched, Reba, etc. and never understood why. Kasey's explanation makes a lot of sense.
