♦ Aisle 1 – Weekly Feature ♦
A “golden’ read for folks of all ages
Aug 26-Sept 1.2016 It’s sort of amazing how “The Golden Girls,” both the show and its stars, still manage to attract new fans and permeate our pop culture. The book, “Golden Girls Forever,” though subtitled “An unauthorized look behind the lanai,” sure does a great job of bringing so much of the back story to this fabulous read.
In the beginning chapters we’re treated to the tale of the show’s origins, profiles of the four main characters, an inside look at the auditions, and impressions right from the stars’ mouths about their initial and ongoing reactions to the show. And early on we realize there are going to be pictures, pictures, pictures.
The largest section of the book is a wondrous trip down memory lane, a series of vignettes each focusing on a particular episode with quotes and quips from selected cast and crew members about notable moments on and off the screen. I think I can safely say you’ll never watch another rerun in quite the same way.
The remaining chapters take us on a tour of the set design for the various rooms and lanai and then visits to the departments for props, wardrobe, and theme song. Some fun wrap-ups include foks weighing in on “Which Golden Girl Are You,” “Who Did You Watch the Show With,” and “Which Golden Girl is Your Favorite,” and then a closer look at just how high profile the show remains to this day.
This coffee table style book is a best seller on Amazon, rated 4 1/2 stars, currently discounted to $22.48 vs regular price of $35.00. You’ll also find links below to books by the GG stars, and the Amazon pages will feature additional show options.
