The Golden Girls: 25th Anniversary Complete Collection chronicles the adventures of four older women living together in Miami. The memorable Rose, Blanche, Dorothy, and Sophia engage in all manner of silly, outrageous, and very funny antics in one of the best sitcoms, ever. The humor is what the show is best known for, and it holds up remarkably well in later years (much like they do), but its the friendship between these women that is at the heart of the series. We should all be so lucky in our golden years.
While this collection offers no new special features than those offered in the original DVD releases, the set makes for an appealing gift. The seven seasons of the series are enclosed within a replica of Sophia’s wicker purse, complete with a deck of playing cards featuring the four ladies. It’s sure to please the ladies, and those who love the ladies, on your list.
