Why is ‘The Golden Girls’ worth watching on Disney +?
There are many reasons why you cannot get lost The golden girls on the Disney streaming platform. Either because it is one of the most important series in history or simply because it was the ‘sitcom’ that changed everything. Although, the main reason is that it seems that the years have not passed by fiction.
A series starring four independent older women? Today would be perfectly normal. But in 1985 it was crazy. But nevertheless, The golden girls lhe succeeded in breaking down all the prejudices that existed before its premiere and it hooked millions of viewers of all ages and social classes thanks to the fact that its scripts included subjects that were considered taboo at the time, for example homosexuality.
Oddly enough, the humor from The golden girls remains just as agile than then thanks to the immortal comic vis of its protagonists. The four roommates fit together perfectly and separately ended up captivating the audience. Blanche’s mischief, Dorothy’s sarcasm, Sophia’s sneer, and Rose’s innocence make her great plots hard to forget.
Nor should we forget that it was the first great series based on the dynamics of a group of friends, a trend that would later be continued by other more recent ones such as Sex in New York The Girls. Her sensitivity and her relativizing point of view made the four friends tell each other everything without hurting themselves. Whether they agreed with each other or not with the decision made, the truth is that they always supported each other.
