Hey, Betty White fans! Out on DVD today is ‘The Golden Girls: 25th Anniversary Complete Collection,’ a 21-disc, 180-episode limited edition set housed in a very cool replica of Golden Girl Sophia’s wicker purse.

golden-girls-castThe show ran from 1985 to 1992, following the adventures of friends Dorothy (Beatrice Arthur), naïve Rose (Betty White), vivacious Blanche (Rue McClanahan) and sarcastic Sophia (Estelle Getty) – who move in together in Miami.

This is one of those shows that, honestly, I never paid much attention to when it first aired. I’d watch it when it was on, but never really sought it out. But revisiting the show now is a lot of fun. The combination of the women is just hysterical, and of course, it’s got Betty White, who’s everywhere in six degrees right now.

golden-girls-25th-annivGuest stars included Sonny Bono, Burt Reynolds, Leslie Nielsen, Merv Griffin, Alex Trebek, Debbie Reynolds, Jeffrey Tambor, Peter Graves and even a young George Clooney!

So if you need a laugh – and who doesn’t? – check out this series, even if you have to fork over $150 for it. Christmas is coming!
