I've been watching some episodes of Designing Women on YouTube in the last few days. I stumbled on an episode that starts off with Charlene (Jean Smart) talking about Vanna White's book, "Vanna Speaks." A few minutes later she uses the word "yutz."
I feel like there are other similarities in story lines on Designing Women. I'm wondering if others have noticed similar things.
To get started...
* Four women -- Julia/Dorothy, Charlene/Rose, Suzanne/Blanche and Mary Jo/Sophia (although there are some overlap between the characters and their traits). * Participating in charity events - fashion shows, history projects, working with kids, etc. * Spouses who have died and ex-spouses * Scenes where Julia calls out someone just like Dorothy... and they both like to sing as well.
As I watch more DW episodes I'll add to the list.
A fan of quality, classic television comedies and holiday specials...
The Golden Girls, The Facts of Life, Roseanne, Will and Grace, The Wonder Years, Burns and Allen, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Are You Being Served?, Family Guy, South Park, Designing Women, Dallas, The Twilight Zone, Original Scooby-Doo, Murphy Brown, The Big Bang Theory...
Talk to me about one of these shows, and I'm all yours...

I watched a few episodes of DW saw a few similarities. But the funny thing is that DW and GG's competed on rival networks and because the girls were more popular made DW change nights altogether.
25| Love old sitcoms especially Golden Girls, 227, The Jeffersons, Diff'rent Strokes, Maude etc. Some shows from then have lasted the test of time.| You can find me on twitter tweeting facts about shows!
Yeah I see the comparison. Two great shows, (GG was the emmy winner), DW was sometimes about that political humour (GG wasn't really), all four of the women had backing from major shows before they started (Estelle came from broadway..). They both enjoyed a great run.
Aussie|Known on Twitter as @jasongjohnson20| Watch #GoldenGirls and a bit of #Maude| Write a little about the show, hope you don't mind, lol.
There shouldnt be one. As great as golden girls is you cannot argue that the speeches in DW were written more cleaner then on GG. And i will say this Dixie Carter just had that flare, i didnt like how bea would hold takes in episodes i preferred the julia method of just saying it.
While ggs won all the emmys and golden globes you just dont have a reason in your scripts to make fun of your costars looks for 7 years no wonder why bea refused anymore tv work and only did cameos...
You saw it on DW the making fun of the costars look once in the episode and that was it GG dragged it on, lame jokes about Bea looking like buddy ebsen or fess parker, i mean no bea deserved better..
Meanwhile charlene and rose are there own category, smart and funny thats the reason i watched for both of them.
From me, no comparison because The script writers for both shows knew what they were doing but they knew how to convey it
