Quotes

Blanche: Barbara, I picked up your first novel the other day.
Barbara Thorndyke: Ah, yes. "So Dark the Waves On Biscayne Bay"

THE GOLDEN GIRLS (and DESIGNING WOMEN too, for that matter) frequently dealt with serious topics - they never shied away from health and social issues. THE GOLDEN GIRLS addressed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Reproductive freedom, LGBT relationships and even AIDS. In 1985 the Miami Herald carried a three-part series on the topic of exclusive, anti-semitic clubs in Miami and in 1988 THE GOLDEN GIRLS brought it to the attention of a much wider public. No, they hit a bullseye with this one!
