The Golden Girls (1985)

Estelle Getty as "Sophia Petrillo"

Four mature women live together in Miami and experience the joys and angst of their golden years. Strong-willed Dorothy, spacey Rose, lusty Southern belle Blanche and matriarch Sophia, Dorothy's mom, occasionally clash but are there for one another in the end. After all, when the show's theme song is titled "Thank You for Being a Friend," the ladies have to remain friendly with one another.
