GEEK PICK The Golden Girls 1000Piece Puzzle

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target If you thought Geek.com had an alarmingly large amount of Frasier opinions, wait until you hear our takes on The Golden Girls. Just four elderly women hanging out, living their full adult lives, bein’ friends in the late 1980s sounds so simple and pure. But in a sitcom landscape littered with the most interchangeably young and hot yet bland and generic people possible The Golden Girls is practically revolutionary. It’s also really funny and good!So if you agree, why not thank someone for being a friend with this 1000-piece Golden Girls puzzle ($15) from ThinkGeek.This puzzle depicts the four titular Golden Girls themselves, Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia, hanging out in a nice teal and pink vaporwave void presumably close to their Florida home. The 19” x 27” puzzle is made of 1000 tiny jigsaw pieces, so it’ll take you some time to put together, unless of course you’re like us and just instinctively know where Estelle Getty’s ears are supposed to be at all times.It’s natural to be more than a little skeptical of modern online geek culture’s seemingly ironic and condescending retroactive embrace of The Golden Girls. Dorks have already ruined the great Betty White, the only main cast member still with us, with tiresome jokes about a little old lady cursing up a storm. And ThinkGeek itself advertises this puzzle with a Deadpool joke, which really just gives away the whole bit.But separate yourself from that and The Golden Girls really is a fantastic TV show. Bea Arthur and Rue McClanahan were natural treasures. It’s impossible not to be delighted seeing their faces form in front of you as you patiently work your way through this puzzle.
