TV Shows - Golden Palace, The

The Golden Palace is an American sitcom that originally aired on CBS during the 1992-1993 season. The show was a spin-off of the sitcom The Golden Girls. The series featured three of the four characters from The Golden Girls operating an upscale hotel called The Golden Palace. The show was not as popular as its predecessor, perhaps due to the absence of Beatrice Arthur as a regular cast member as well as a move to the Friday night death slot. Arthur did make two guest appearances, as did others from the original show. Twenty-four episodes of the series are known to have been taped. New characters included Don Cheadle as the hotel's manager Roland Wilson and Cheech Marin as Chuy Castillos, the chef.

1 The Golden Girls will go down as one of the greatest shows in history, but the Golden Palace will be one of the biggest flop. With the absence of Bea Arthur, and the addition of Cheech Marin, the exodus of Miami and the entrance to an old Miami Beach hotel, the show failed miserably to capture the magic of the original. Instead of just being funny, the show became a preachy writers soapbox. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 3:06 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 "Golden Palace" jumped on day one; I was a casual fan of "the Golden Girls" during the late 80s and had always enjoyed that show, so when "Palace" debuted in '92, I started watching out of curiosity. The first episode wasn't too bad, some familiar faces (Rose, Sofia, Blanche) and it was moderately funny. By the second and third episodes, I realized something was seriously wrong and it wasn't hard to figure out: without the biting wit, sarcasm and literally towering presence of Bea Arthur's "Dorothy,", this show was a lost cause; by the fourth or fifth episodes, it was becoming a chore to watch it. Also, "Golden Girls" has aged like a vintage 1992 bottle of French wine; "Golden Palace" has aged about as gracefully as a '92 bottle of strawberry yoo-hoo. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 3:06 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 The Golden Palace JTS DAY ONE! To be honest, I never even knew the show existed until the reruns of Lifetime aired. That's how bad it was! Never mind the cheesy, revamped theme song and the fact that Bea Arthur wisely didn't sign on for this. The premise that the three GG would get into a business that they knew nothing about made no sense at all! What...with no Dorothy, the other three would all of the sudden lose all common sense and pour all their money into a sinking business? Oh yeah, makes perfect sense! The fact that the writers/producers blatantly tried to create stereotypically "funny & cute" characters screamed of desperation and is really painful to watch. I'm not really sure why the talented cast of GG decided to board this shipwreck but I'm sure they're all glad the show was canceled after a season. Lord knows I'm glad! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 3:05 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Obviously, now I understand why it was cancelled: The writing is AWFUL. Blanche and Sophia are openly hostile towards one another, and Rose becomes an aggressive nut. There is no warmth between any of the characters whatsoever. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 3:05 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 What would motivate an entitled, lazy, 12-hour-a-week museum employee (Blanche), a moronic, but fledgling TV news reporter (Rose), and an 87-year old stroke survivor who belongs at a home (Sophia), to ditch their relatively cushy lives and blow all their savings on, and work their tails off at, a hotel? I can't think of a reason either. The whole premise is out of character for all 3 women. They are also purported equal partners, but really, how much money could Sophia and Rose possibly have had? Blanche was the only one who had any kind of money. And I get the feeling that Don Cheadle is supposed to be sort of a Dorothy substitute - the sensible, level headed, straight man. But, Cheadle is no Bea Arthur! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 3:04 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 They lived in a hotel!! What the hell kind of plot is that? When they moved into the hotel and had that dumbass Cheech Marin try and have sex with Sophia in the kitchen. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 3:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 What made it even worse was how the theme song for Golden Palace jacked the Golden Girls' theme song. It was the same one except it was a guy singing it (and badly I might add). The Golden Girls' theme song is classic (even my daughter knows it by heart) but Golden Palace didn't even bother to get a new one, they just ripped it off and had a guy sing it instead. Not a BTF moment really, but something that kind of irked me. LOL -- Submitted By: (King) on August 22, 2014, 4:55 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 This was a sad show. Coming off something as trail blazing and hilarious as The Golden Girls, and into this formulaic, unfunny mess was just depressing. Bring in three of the four Girls back, change the setting to a hotel, throw in some token ethnic actors and call it a show, a bad show. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 16, 2014, 11:55 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Can we all just agree that this whole mess is simply best forgotten? Utterly lame premise and it turned all three main characters into one-dimensional cartoons. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 1, 2009, 1:57 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
