'The Golden Girls' gets remade in Turkey...at last!

Posted on

Finally. You guys, finally. Turkey has created its own version of the classic sitcom The Golden Girls! According to Variety, it’s only a 13-part miniseries there, unlike the 180-part megaseries it was here, but still: Some GG is better than no GG. (Also true for Gilmore Girls. Too soon tell if it’s true for Gossip Girl.)

I really, really hope one of the episodes they adapt is “A Little Romance.”

I still DVR episodes here and there, and the show’s humor stands up surprisingly well, plus the constant set-up/punchline rhythm is like sitcom comfort food — when it’s good, there’s nothing better; when it’s crappy, it makes you a little nauseous; and you’ll never truly outgrow your taste for it.

In case that didn’t meet your RDAoBA (recommended daily allowance of Bea Arthur, duh): please enjoy Bea-utiful.
