Favorite comedy about senior women: 'The Golden Girls' or 'Grace and Frankie'?
Below is the synopsis of "The Golden Girls," per Rotten Tomatoes.
Four mature single women share a house in Miami in a long-running ensemble sitcom that's enjoyed a resurgent popularity among younger viewers since repeats began airing on Lifetime. A two-time Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy Series, the smart Susan Harris-created sitcom dealt wittily (and often movingly) with aspects of friendship and aging, and earned awards for all four of its principal actresses.
"The Golden Girls" remains a national treasure and should be protected at all costs. But unfortunately, all of the ladies have passed on except Betty White. Take a moment to reminisce with White as she plays the lovable Shade Queen we know as Rose here.
Below is the synopsis of "Grace and Frankie," per Rotten Tomatoes.
Two nemeses become bonded jilted wives after their husbands reveal they have been having an affair with each other since the 1990s and now plan to get married.
"Grace and Frankie" holds a fresh rating of 89 percent and an audience score of 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). The show hit us like a ton of bricks. No one expected Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin to knock us out of our seats when Netflix dropped the comedy. The show is so stellar, that it is currently on season six, has been renewed and will end with season seven. And with the seventh season, "Grace and Frankie" will be Netflix's longest-running show.
