Every episode for the first 5 seasons was top notch, while seasons 6 and 7 were great...there were a few clunkers.

The whole series was good. But I definitely like certain episodes more than others throughout the series.

"I definitely like certain episodes more than others throughout the series."

I agree mets82

For instance, I really didn't like the story arcs when Dorothy slept with Stan, and later almost remarried him. I get that she had unresolved feelings, but really? After all he did? And all the bad things she said about him, she suddenly softened toward him that much?

I'm with you all the way. I loved the last few seasons. They are my favorite seasons as well. Very enjoyable to me.

I liked all of the Stan episodes and thought he was on just enough. His presence represented some extra continuity in a series that was all too lacking in that area (one of the few things in which Golden Girls lacked).
As for the original topic, the first two seasons are my favorite of the show. I think those are the best and most relatable episodes, definitely the least outlandish. All of the seasons have great episodes, but the fourth season was probably my least favorite overall. The last season was decent with a few exceptions.

I definitely agree that the later seasons were not quite as strong and that yes, you can definitely tell that the writers were different.

The first three seasons are great and the 4th is great too.

The 5th is fairly strong, although is not as good as the first 4.

Season 6 is the one where things get ridiculous- Miles being in the witness protection program was idiotic and a big misstep. Snap Out Of It was just too much. Once In St. Olaf (Rose meeting her monk father) was a bit too much too, but it was handled quite well by the actors. Stand By Your Man was a waste of an episode. Ebbtide's Revenge offered an amazing moment for Estelle Getty and was overall a strong episode, but the inconsistencies with the episode and previous ones were irritating. Sophia had gone to visit Phil twice, the first time for a graduation which ended up not happening and the second time when her granddaughter got married, so Angela stating that she "wouldn't set foot in my house" just didn't make any sense to me.

The episodes I like the most from that season are Melodrama, Ebbtide's Revenge, Blanche Delivers, Sister Of The Bride, Mrs. George Devereaux, Feelings, Zborn Again, If At Last You Do Succeed, How Do You Solve A Problem Like Sophia, There Goes The Bride 1/2, Older And Wiser, and Love For Sale.

Season 7 is a mixed bag for the most part, but has some great stuff in there too. It's just a little sad that it's the last season and you can tell that the actors are aware of that.

Agree, I always have a soft spot for Stan just like Dorothy did on the show. Why was Season 4 your least favorite overall?

Largely because the second half of that season contains most of my least favorite episodes (including my absolute least favorite, "You Gotta Have Hope"). The first half of Season 4 is pretty good, but from "Valentine's Day" on, I like only 1-2 episodes the rest of that season.
I want to say that's around the time the new writing crew took over.

Didn't Betty White once say that by Season 6 (where the show argabuly lost much of its energy and vitality), Bea Arthur was really didn't want to really do the show anymore, and it really shows in her performance?

I'm not sure, but I personally feel that you get that impression in Season 5.
