Since the mid-'80s, The Golden Girls has been a progressive show filled with epic one-liners, retro fashion, and cheesecake. Along with being #squadgoals for any sisterhood, the show covered a series of taboo topics with a comedic backdrop — most of which are relevant issues today. Each dilemma was met with a kitchen table, slice of cheesecake, and a friend to talk it through.
