I actually like this show better than The Golden Girls. But my vision is obviously blurred, as I have simply grown tired of Golden Girls plots (Lifetime had to have known that broadcasting the show three hours a day would have certain horrific consequences).
I would have prefered to have Bea Arthur, but without her the show presents a different dynamic. I do grow tired of Rue McClanahan's character of Blanche, but the refreshment of Rose and Sophia keeps me hooked.
Overall, I wouldn't start a fansite for it, but I'd most certainly watch The Golden Palace.
