TIME’s TV critic James Poniewozik gives the Golden Girls star her proper due in a post on his Tuned In blog: “With just the right blend of sass, sashay and Southern charm, McClanahan made Blanche into an icon of sexuality at a certain age, and endeared fans with her character’s unashamed enjoyment of life and its, ahem, pleasures.” (via Tuned In)
