Fans don't just think it's better than "Golden Girls," they think it's the greatest show of all time.

 But when you consider that the "Golden Girls" came out in the mid-80s, it was pretty revolutionary...

#GoldenGirlsForever

"The Golden Girls" has achieved a cult status that "Sex and The City" has not. Fans say "GG" has aged amazingly well for a 30-year-old show, whereas "SATC" is often critiqued for being label-obsessed and superficial.

And some "Golden Girls" fans actually think SATC ripped off GG.

This Huffington Post piece argues "The Golden Girls" was actually far more subversive than SATC, despite the latter's wild sex scenes and frequent nudity, because GG spoke frankly about older women's desires and let gray-haired actresses be as raunchy as their young male counterparts.

Maybe they were just different shows for different times... but "Golden Girls" did come first.

#SATCForever

SATC was one of HBO's flagship shows, which means it redefined television as we know it. And as writer Amelia Diamond noted in Manrepeller, it "turned the spinster stereotype on its head because no one had presented it as anything but miserable. SATC made it badass to be single. It made single women eligible bachelors." Diamond claims "Sex and the City" remains "the guide book to being a 21st century woman, single or not."
