Top 10 Guest Stars From Season Four

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

One of television's most highly acclaimed comedies returns for another season that proves that life begins at 50, THE GOLDEN GIRLS. Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sophia are the four mismatched Miami housemates who look out for one another no matter what misadventures come their way. It's a season filled with romance, dating catastrophes, one wedding, and more Elvis impersonators than you can shake a stick at. Now you can experience every hilarious episode from this unforgettable year on this complete DVD set. Enjoy special appearances by guest stars Bob Hope, Julio Iglesias, and Quentin Tarantino. It's comedy that's pure gold.

Long before reality-show staples "Big Brother" and "The Real World" tapped into the drama and high-hilarity of cohabitation, the long-running "Golden Girls" paved the way into that prime-time show format. Only difference is that "Golden Girls" was pure fiction. Season Four stays true to the format that earned the series three Emmys and a Golden Globe Award: Three widowed/divorced friends in their '50s and one octogenarian mother and grandmother all share a home and their retirement in Miami, Florida. In a season that includes a UFO sighting and government cover up; the implications of drug addiction; a late-in-life wedding; the ridiculous '80s aerobics craze--spandex, headbands, leg warmers and all; a nightmarish nursing home; lesbianism; an intergenerational love triangle; and a trip to Rose's mythical St. Olaf; the episodes in Season Four are more entertaining and often downright risqué.

There are some notable cameos as well--Bob Hope steals the show in "You Gotta Have Hope" as the featured talent for Dorothy's hospital charity show; Richard Mulligan of "Empty Nest" bridges the spin-off link as the girls' newly widowed neighbor and object of Blanche's advances; Jay Thomas plays an overactive director in "High Anxiety," where the girls' kitchen is used as a TV commercial set; and blink and you'll miss a young Quentin Tarantino as an Elvis impersonator in "Sophia's Wedding." A terrific bonus feature captures the performances of all the season's guest stars on Disc One. Overall, Season Four is zestier and much less earnest than previous seasons, which is exactly what works about the series: the bawdier the grandmothers, the funnier the show. --Gabi Knight

2. The Days and Nights of Sophia Petrillo - As Blanche, Rose and Dorothy spend a lazy day sitting around the kitchen table, Sophia spends her busy day doing all sorts of charitable deeds.

3. The One That Got Away - Rose sees a UFO while sitting on the lanai; Blanche attempts to seduce the man who turned her down in the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bea Arthur Rocks March 18, 2006
I LOVE "The Golden Girls." All the characters are so funny, and imaginative. But my favorite is Dorothy (Bea Arthur). Just looking at her could make even the most serious person start cracking up.

During the Fourth Season "The Golden Girls" were at the top of their game. It doesn't get much better than this.

It's very sad that sitcoms no longer capture the warmth or comedy that "The Golden Girls" always had. Why can't the broadcast networks get their act together and make TV like this today?

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Thank goodness we diehard fans don't have to wait over 6 months for The Golden Girls fourth season to be released on dvd!!! I noticed this particular season the character of Sophia really shines. She competes with Blanche over a man, gets a pizza commercial (too funny!), gets laid and married (in that order), and is leading a full productive secret life! Way to go Sophia!!

Although I love Sophia dearly, Dorothy is my favorite golden girl! Beatrice Arthur can make me laugh out loud just from her priceless facial expressions! I can't wait to purchase the Golden Girls intimate portrait dvd on November 15th because I missed it when aired on Lifetime. I'm totally looking forward to spending Valentine's Day with a box of chocolates and The Golden Girls Season 4!!! Okay! Okay! a hot lover will be nice too!!! Now only if the powers at be will finally release Maude on dvd!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hope They release them all soon! January 21, 2006
A Kid's Review
I think that the Golden Girls season 4 is going to be awesome I can't wait to buy it because there are a bunch of episodes that I havent seen on the 1988-1989 series. I think most of all I want to see "Yes,We Have No Havanas" because I saw it once but don't remember it so maybe this season will get me caught up on the only last few episodes I didn't see on television. I also hope they put out seasons 5,6, and 7 on DVD soon also plus the Golden Palace so I can continue to buy my favorite television show of all time!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Girls: Season Four February 22, 2006
"The Golden Girls" continued to be the funniest show on TV as it went into Season Four. Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia were all back together for another hilarious season. As far as where this season ranks with the three previous seasons, Season Four doesn't quite top Season Two. But it's right up there with Season One and Season Three, which is an amazing accomplishment. "The Golden Girls" was definitely at its peak when the fourth season aired.

SEASON FOUR (1988-89)
It's very hard for any TV show to continue being at the top of its game while going into a four season on the air. But "The Golden Girls" continued to excel and succeed as the fourth season played out. Episodes from Season Four to remember: Blanche and Sophia vying for the affections of a charming old Cuban guy; Rose winning the award as St. Olaf's Woman of the Year, and the girls traveling to Rose's home state of Minnesota for the awards ceremony; Sophia getting knocked on the head by a baseball at a baseball game; Sophia marrying her late husband's best friend; Blanche's brother who pays a visit and breaks some shocking news to Blanche; Blanche dating a blind man; Dorothy dating a man who, despite his plain looks, turns out to be the greatest lover she's ever had; the girls flashing back to Valentine's Day disasters; the girls putting together a charity variety show and trying to get Bob Hope to be their emcee (after Rose admits that Bob Hope is her father!); Rose trying to break an addiction of pills; the girls trying to get an old friend of Sophia's out of a nursing home that looks like a slum; the discovery that Dorothy might not be Sophia's daughter; and Blanche attempting to sell her house.

I just got this set (Golden Girls Season 4) and this one does have English subtitles available. So does Season 1 and 2, if I remember right. I have these seasons; I don't have 3 but will add this and 5 to 7 to my collection someday. I don' t know if Seasons 3 and 5 to 7 have it, but they... Read More
