Haven't seen it since it was airing for the first time on TV, but I enjoyed it. I thought they were all funny, and played off each other really well. Dorothy gave the best WTF? looks on the show, and we all have that slightly-too-old-to-be-acting-that-way family member like Blanche. The play between Sophia and Rose was hilarious, too.
the creator of Arrested Development started his writing career with the Golden Girls. i like to think that's what made the dialogue so good on the show, as well as the running jokes they'd have during the episodes.
