Jenny Lewis is an evil girl scout on the Golden Girls (video)

The Golden Girls had a loyal fan base that still exists to this day, thanks to reruns. The show was often controversial, as its main characters were 4 single older women who lived together, but were still sexually active, and up-to-date with pop culture. Mild profanity and sexual innuendo were common on the program. The effects of Sophia’s stroke, which, according to Dorothy, “rendered her totally annoying” and “a complete burden”, enabled the character to get away with much more than the other women.

The show often tackled topics that were not frequently aired on TV. These included: the coming out of Blanche’s brother and his gay marriage, menopause, gun control, impotence, drug addiction, safe sex, empty nest syndrome, infidelity, interracial marriage, racism, transsexualism, homophobia, age discrimination, organ donation, fixed income, domestic violence, problem gambling, suicide, cross-dressing, lesbianism, plastic surgery, child abandonment, euthanasia, chronic fatigue syndrome, pregnancy, homicide, veganism, cocaine addiction, artificial insemination, health care, agoraphobia, homelessness, immigration, sexual harassment, illegal immigration, and senility. Perhaps the most provocative episode involved Rose getting tested for HIV years after receiving an untested blood transfusion. [Wikipedia]

As Jenny Lewis‘ music career continues and she gets more famous (for her music), many probably forget or never realized that she started out as a child actress. I was reminded the other day when I was watching a 1987 episode of The Golden Girls where Jenny played an evil girl scout named Daisy. Check out video clips from the show, below…
