I found this show funnier when I was younger, partly because the material was fresher, more daring back in those days. Also because old people sex jokes are funnier when you’re younger. But I still don’t mind watching this because it’s mostly charming, it dealt with a lot of sensitive hot-button issues in a graceful way, and Bea Arthur just kills it every time she’s on screen. It’s also nice to see Betty White play something other than a sex-crazed character. The naive Minnesotan gets old at times, but hey, Betty White. This could rank higher, but Estelle Getty is just terrible. A one-note, monotone character with zero funny one-liners. So, of course she was nominated for an Emmy every single year of the show.
