The Golden Girls

DVDs of seasons of the Golden Girls were on sale for cheap so we bought some. My bf loves that show, and it occurs to me that a lot of gay men I've known have loved that show, some of which would have been very young when the show ended in 1992. So that provided fodder for a poll about how popular the show was or still is, whether Golden Girl love is universal or just a gay thing, and even something for grammar nazis, all behind the cut.
