1 The show never fully jumped but certain episodes are much better than others. One that is bad, was the unneccesary 2 part story of Dorothys Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. If Dr Harry Weston of Empty Nest is such a great pal of Dorothy, why didnt she just go to him in the first place instead of waiting until halfway through Part 2? The Part 2 ending was utterly ridiculous where Dorothy just so happens to see the doctor, whom she saw in New York, at some random, swanky Miami restaurant. Give me a break! Another JTS moment was when Rose...again, VERY small world...just so happens to run into her biological father from St. Olaf at the hospital in Miami. The problem is the guy looks to be about the same age as Rose! Brother, perhaps, but Roses father would have been pushing the century mark or pushing up daisies by that point. -- Submitted By: (BTFan) on May 20, 2016, 2:44 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 There was only one episode I didnt like and that was the one where Dorothy scratches a winning lottery ticket worth 10k. I think Blanche put it in her late husbands jacket, which was in a box that was meant to be put away in an attic or something. But what does Rose do, she places it in a Salvation Army box or something. The girls find out about it, they track down the box and jacket at a local homeless shelter. They find the ticket but grow a conscience and leave it at the shelter after they get to know the people who reside there. -- Submitted By: (BTFan) on May 20, 2016, 2:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I don't think GG ever really Jumped The Shark, but at some point it did start to lose steam. I think it was around Season 5 when the show got new writers. It started off as a being about real issues older people face but then the outlandish relatives appeared, the character traits became more caricature-ish and redundant (Rose dumb and tells a story about St. Olaf, Blanche slut, Dorothy can't get a date, Sophia makes smart remark and tells a story about Sicily etc.) It's easy to tell when the show is losing its grip on reality- the girls seem to wear more elaborate, expensive nighties and wear heels and a lot of makeup before bedtime. And their schtick became formulaic and repetitive. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on July 19, 2015, 11:59 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 During the episode when Rose is addicted to painkillers and tells Dorothy she is mourning the death of her beloved cat Fluffy. Dorothy retorts that Rose didn't have a cat named Fluffy because she's allergic to cats. This TOTALLY goes against the VERY first show, in which Blanche and Rose met BECAUSE Rose had a cat and had left housing that wouldn't allow her to keep it. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 12:35 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 It never jumped. Having said that, I do have a few complaints though. 1) Too much Stan (Dorothy's ex). Some episodes with him were good, but I gag at the ones when she takes him back or almost marries him! And she's supposed to be the smart one? 2) I didn't mind the sex stuff up to a point but sometimes they seemed like cats in heat. 3) I have to agree with the poster who didn't like Dorothy's long shaggy hair whenever I see one of those episodes I think did she think that looked good? Overall a great show, great characters. A true classic. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 12:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The writing in the shows last 2 seasons went downill. There was a noticeable dip in quality with the new writers. Rose was always flighty and naive, but the writers in the last two seasons wrote her character as if she was now borderline retarded. Blanche was always little loose and a huge flirt, but she was written by these writers like she was a total slut. Whenever these shows from the final two years come on, I just change the channel. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 12:32 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Why does Stan always say, "Hi, it's me, Stan" after they have already opened the door? They can SEE that it's him! That annoyed the shit out of me, he ALWAYS did it! Also, whatever happened to his wife that he married at that hotel? Remember, she was talked to Dorothy at the bar on her wedding day? She is never ever mentioned again. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 12:30 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

9 Is he Samuel Plankmaker or is he Nicholas Carbone or is he Miles Webber? Oh yeah and whoever said he appeared earlier in the series as "Arnie" is also correct. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 12:28 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 It ALMOST jumped the shark when a few episodes became too emotional. They dealt with death, sickness... shows that had a few gags but a very serious plot. On these occasions I would have to turn it off, the Golden Girls is an all around amusing show but when it begins to have some drama sometimes it can be strained. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 12:27 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
11 The episode where we find out that Sophia might not really be Dorothy's mother. It is never revealed if Sophia really is or not. What was the point of that episode?? I didn't like that one. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 3, 2014, 10:39 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I don't think the show ever actually Jumped The Shark, but some of the things bugged me to no end. Examples: Wearing boots (Dorothy) and sweaters (Blanche) and sweatshirts (Rose) all the time in hot and humid Miami. Blanche's kids' names varying from Skippy to Janet to Rebecca to whoever else. Rose's daughters changing constantly (isn't it supposed to be the same actress who plays Kirsten?) The daughter in the episode where Rose has a heart attack is very different from the episode where the daughter gets mad at Rose for supposedly squandering Charlie's money AND from the episode where yet another daughter sleeps with Michael, Dorothy's son. Phil...we never actually saw him, but why was he always played up so much as a cross-dresser and such? Blanche's NEVER-ENDING boyfriends. C'mon, no one has that many men in their lives, and that many marriage proposals. I loved when she turned down that millionaire's marriage proposal because his kids needed a mom and besides, he wouldn't have been there for Blanche after they married as he was so totally engrossed in his line of work. Stupid reasoning! He manages to get to know her, though, and propose, even though he has "no time". Okay, enough complaining. One episode which always make me laugh is the one where Rose is complaining about Miles boringness (visiting a thimble museum) and she says she couldn't wait to give the headset back. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 3, 2014, 10:38 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Why did Blanche, who owned the house, have the smallest bedroom? And how many bathrooms did the house have, 1 or 4??? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 3, 2014, 10:32 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
14 They really started getting carried away with all the flashback episodes. It was getting ridiculous. How many flashbacks can you possibly have in that amount of time? In real life, do you have a flashback damn near every day about something that happened last year? I can usually predict those episodes too. They generally start with the girls sitting at the table, someone brings up something totally random to the discussion ("Dorothy, things haven't always been smooth around here! Remember that time...") then everybody starts smiling and the screen gets wavy and we're flashing back to episodes from last season. Come on. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 3, 2014, 10:31 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 How about when Blanche thought Dorothy's friend Jean was Lebanese because she didn't know what a lesbian was?? And Blanche is supposed to be the "worldly" one? She would have known what that meant, it was out of character for her to not know. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 3, 2014, 10:05 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

17 In the final episode they insisted upon saying that Dorothy married Blanche's uncle. It would've been more believable if they said Lucas was her cousin but her uncle, no way. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 3, 2014, 10:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 Miles and the Witness Protection Program. When it is revealed that the "Cheeseman" is after Miles, it is also revealed that Miles had a completely different secret identity - name, career, etc. And that he really lived in Chicago. However, when the Cheeseman is caught and Miles is free he returns to his pseudo-career, pseudo-name and pseudo-life that he had under the witness protection program! The whole story doesn't make a lick of sense. I can understand him falling for Rose, but the notion of retaining the "Miles" name and identity like it's a non-issue is the epitome of sloppy, careless writing and total disregard for the audience. Was Miles' daughter a fake, too? We'll never know. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 3, 2014, 9:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
