Some of our favorite TV shows and movies make us laugh, fantasize and simply relax. There may be times where we feel connected to the actors within these shows and films.

Watching certain tv shows with family and friends can be a bonding experience or tradition. Those who also use the same programs may become friends out of similar interests.

There are specific tv shows and movies that I enjoy watching because it also reminds me of a memory from the past, it's a connection with a family or friend and it simply makes me laugh.

Personally, I grew up watching The Golden Girls. This is a show that I have watched with my family and we have bonded over certain episodes. 

The Golden Girls can be explained as four women who live together in Miami, FL. Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia are roommates under the same roof who share all of life's moments with stories, experiences and laughs. They set examples of how to be friends which may be why the uplifting theme song introduced the show as, 'Thank You for Being a Friend".

Although only rerun episodes are shown of this popular show, they still have fans who follow the account on social media and share their love of The Golden Girls.

Golden Girls lovers will be able to experience a event coming to the Hudson Valley. Immediately, I was drawn to this show and wanted to share it with others who also enjoy laughing.
