There’s never been anything quite like “The Golden Girls” and there may never be again. Yet another excellent season for the immortal classic, here we find the Girls having adventures that go beyond the more domestic scenery they’ve had so far but anywhere they go, it feels like home. All four lead performances are pitch perfect, and the writing is just as strong and surprisingly risky here as before. Some of the funniest episodes of the entire show’s run are in this season, like “The Auction,” “Blind Date” and the surprisingly progressive “Scared Straight,” featuring a memorable performance by Monte Markham as Blanche’s brother.
