The Golden Palace (1992-1993)


After Dorothy Zbornack flies the coop, the remaining Golden Girls decide to buy a hotel on Miami Beach that has almost the same amount employees as the Bates Motel.  They immediately get their feet wet performing tasks around their new investment.  And you will see the biggest gift will be a mint on the pillow.

The Golden Palace is a textbook example for Hollywood not leaving well enough alone.  The Golden Girls (1985-1992) was sheer tv genius and should've ended when it ended.  At least NBC knew the Florida oranges have been squeezed and the show found a home at CBS to join their elderly TGIF lineup.  General consensus was it just wasn't the same without Bea Arthur, who is my favorite Golden Girl, and the series was canceled after just one season.
