Golden Girls Tropes

by robinhardwick

I’m just cracking into season three of The Golden Girls, as I recap each episode, and I’ve noticed that several shows follow the same storylines;

-A handsome, single man comes into the house, and the three ladies get hot under the collar and desperately go into heat. They either fight over the man, or the man uses them by secretly dating all of them.

-There’s some sort of charity event/banquet/fundraiser where they take out their most bejeweled gowns and have a problem finding dates and/or dealing with their weird dates.

-Someone’s son or daughter visits and reveals a secret about their lives to their parents, they freak out, but then the other ladies convince the parent to accept their child.

Yes, this is not funny, just an observation.
