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

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.

    This is the only show that I can watch every episode over and over throughout the years and NEVER get sick of it. I still watch it almost every night and it never gets old.

    I think the Golden Girls is one of the funniest sitcoms of all time. I agree with viewit, I can watch these episodes over and over again and never tire of it.

    Without a doubt the best sitcom of the 80s, yes that includes you “Cheers!”

    That scene is funny, but I was hoping for a clip with a little more…… OCTANE!

    Love Golden Girls! I can remember that clip like it was on yesterday. Shrimp, short ribs – hilarious!
