In the episode "Nice and Easy", Blanche's promiscuous niece runs off to spend the night with that stranger from Miami Vice at his apartment. Less than an hour later, Blanche, Dorothy and Rose show up at the Vice cop's apartment. Now how did they know where he lived?

LOL, good point. Especially since she only introduced him by his first name, Ed.

Maybe that's the power of being a TV show and not real life...

I also never thought of that. And here I thought I noticed all the inconsistencies. Good point
My question was who's child was Blanche's niece?

What I did notice is GG first introduced Blanche's bratty 14 grandson, then her niece, before they introduced any of her (how many?) kids.

Yep, and Blanche also had two sons that were never introduced. And Dorothy's brother Phil was never introduced.

Also, when Sophia's brother Angelo is pretending to be a priest, he confesses that he was actually married for 72 years to a woman named Philamena. Now in 72 long years, Sophia was never aware about Angelo's wife? Very strange.

Obviously Lucy could belong to either of Blanche's two sisters whom she didn't get along with. We know that Virginia was married before AND was knocked up in high school so she could possibly be Virginia's daughter or Charmane's (?spell). Heck for all we know Clayton could have had Lucy with his ex wife before he came out the closet about being gay.

Also Blanche did have a lot of grandchildren and I think most of them belonged to Janet (the daughter who hates her lol). She had one teenage grandson named David and two young granddaughters named Melissa and Sarah.

Another big GG inconsistency: (two parter) Sophia confesses to Dorothy that she first married a man named Guido Spirelli back in Sicily before she moved to America. Now assuming she was at least 18 years old, why doesn't she have an Italian accent? Secondly, if she was an adult when she came to America...how could she not know how old she is??? In one of the flashback episodes, she tells young Dorothy that immigration made a mistake on her birth certificate when she came to America, so she didn't realize that she is actually a whole year older than she thought.

I guess we can't blame that on her stroke... Or can we?

No, she made the comments about the birth certificate long, long before the stroke.... just more lazy writing!

The very first Blanche centered episode was the one where her sister Virginia wants Blanche's kidney. Clayton was not mentioned as a possible donor which leads me to think that the Clayton character wasn't created yet. I think at some point the writer's decided to give Blanche a gay brother.

Two actors played Blanche's' father. I know the first one died. But the storylines were completely different. The original father sold everything for a musical career.

^^^ Yes, and the 2nd big daddy married a much younger woman, so why wasn't she at his funeral when he died?

They never even showed the actual funeral. Just Blanche fighting with her sister Virginia and refusing to go to it. I'm sure his new wife would have attended the actual funeral along with all the other friends and relatives.

But once again we never got to see the actual funeral!

Yes. Yet when the father eventually died, the family home was obviously still very much his, since he was buried above ground on the family estate, next to his first wife.

The inconsistencies in the Golden Girls episodes both bother me, and amuse me. They are abundant, so we'd better just accept the fact that numerous changeovers in writers accounts for the sequence of events in the GG lives being very, very inconsistent.

The ultimate "boo-boo" in my opinion, was Rose referring to her parents as "Nyland" instead of Rose's maiden name. I'm very surprised no one caught that and changed it, especially Betty White herself.

Very true. But I'm sure there are hardly any TV shows that don't have inconsistancies or continuity errors.
