Designing Women is celebrating its 30th anniversary, and getTV has special plans for the series. They have a special marathon scheduled for Monday, and the series will begin airing episodes on the series on June 26.
“Designing Women was occasionally dismissed during its original run as a middle-aged variation on The Golden Girls, but it was so much more. The Women broke ground with frank stories about mature sexuality, extra-marital relationships, birth control, body image, and illness. A Season Two episode even features a HIV-positive character at a time when the disease was still taboo in mainstream entertainment. Because of this, Designing Women was unlike most other sitcoms of the era. A number of episodes may make you cry, but I mean that in the best of ways.”
