Since it debuted in September 1985. I've seen every episode - some a lot more than others. Hmmmm, maybe Lifetime shows some more than others.

I watched the final season on CBS with my grandmother when i was 2 or 3 years old, and got hooked onto it...but I just really didn't care for GP, and it ruined of likeness to the girls for a while. But then Lifetime reran all of the seasons, so I once again got hooked.

I too have been watching since 1985. This year I have been able to record all 180 episodes uncut, in the correct order, since they were shown in the UK on LivingTV. I've achieved my dream of all episodes on tape and now they go and tell us that the GG's might be released on DVD, haha, typical! I'd still buy them on DVD tho'...

Sam -- Now, what you need to do is make me a copy of all the episodes, ship them across the Atlantic, and hook your GG partner up!!! Of course, your VCR is probably on the PAL system, which would mean it couldn't be played on my VCR. Still, though, it's cool that you have the complete set.

As for watching the show -- I grew up watching NBC on Saturdays and Thursdays. I was a total Cosby fan, and I loved TFOL, GG, Empty Nest, etc etc. That was in the day that Saturday nights meant you stayed home. I think if that kind of good television was brought back I'd jump right on it.

Of course, as a kid, I never thought about taping the shows or anything. I know I have a few originals that I found at my parents house -- including the episodes of Rose's heart surgeries. So, that's kind of cool to have. But, it wasn't until I got older and rediscovered them on syndication (before Lifetime had the rights) that I became rehooked.

LOL Yeah, our tapes won't play in US machines yet US tapes will play without a problem in our VCR's. We have multiformat VCR's and DVD players in Europe.

I heard that Lifetime severely edit episodes which is such a shame because in actual fact they seem to edit bits which are important to the storyline. We have about a 3 minute commercial break inbetween the Golden Girls here, so there's no real need to cut bits out.

That's how it was with me. I was a fan of the show when it was first aired on Channel 4 in 1985 and it never occured to me that it would be taken off the TV for any length of time, so I didn't record the episodes. Big mistake! So, we had something like a 5-7 year break over here before the GG's were shown again and that was tough! Having spent such a long time without the show really made me realise what a cult comedy this really is. As the years go by I believe it's becoming more popular, certainly with people who weren't even born when it first aired

As I've said many times before, I first saw the show when I was 5 and would watch it with my grandma. It wasn't until this past summer that I really got into watching it again.

Actually, it was kind of an accident that I even started watching again to begin with. I woke up one morning in the summer, ready to watch Unsolved Mysteries as always. Well, Golden Girls was on instead and I was bummed out but I was too lazy to get out of bed or turn off the TV so I watched it, remembering bits and pieces from many years before. Well that one episode got me hooked all over again and I've been watching ever since!

Haha, same here. My mom was watching it once and I was like "Mom change the channel, I hate this show!" I saw like a minute of an ep about 5 years ago when Blanche was in her Grammy's house and thought it was stupid she was chaining herself to the heater so I vowed never to watch the show again. Well when my mom didn't change the channel, I gave it a go and turns out I liked it. So I've been watching for about a year and a half now, but I'm burning out since I've seen each ep about 5689360965 times. The only ep I've never seen was a season 7 one where Dorothy went to some teaching convention.

Default The odd thing

My grandmother never watched the show, and TGG had a viewing audience that was mainly age 20-59 (i think 73% of the audience for the show was between those ages).....So even though it had all these old women in it it attracted younger viewers. Blanche was 50 when the show began, tho.
