I like them both. but my favorite would have to be Growing Pains because I liked Kirk Cameron when I was younger.

Growing Pains. I still watch that occasionally.

I love them both so much...hmmm...but I think I'm going to have to go with Golden Girls. I used to watch re-runs of the show everyday.

I hated them both. But if had to choose Golden Girls wasn't so bad.

The Golden girls was awesome!

Growing pains

I truly can't believe people actually chose Growing Pains over Golden girls.

Growing Pains was a complete take-off of Family Ties. The set-ups and even many of the plotlines were so close to FT that I'm surprised there wasn't a lawsuit. What probably kept them from suing was the mere fact that GP wasn't all that funny. It wasn't. It was lame humor bordering on bad slapstick. The Boner character was about the closest they came to funny.

Golden Girls, on the other hand, had biting, witty humor that often brought into play outlandish pop culture references. It was much more thoughtful and provocative than *anything* Growing Pains cuold have put out.

Definitely the Golden Girls.
The family on the Growing Pains was f*cking annoing, especially the nerd Ben and that horrendous little sister

That little sh*tty Chrissy was HORRIBLE! And Ben's hideousness is only rivaled by Tina Yothers' in the final years of Family Ties. The difference is, she was at least cute for a while. Him, GOD, I can't for the life of me understand why they would ever even choose him for the role!

Ben was your typical little blonde haired nerd! I hated him.

Golden Girls, because Bea Arthur is the sexiest TV actress EVER!!!!!!
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/9/04 - 6:36:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
The Golden Girls in still one of my favorite shows.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/9/04 - 7:13:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
golden girls was much better, just for the evil old lady.

yes yes yes!

Plus, it had a solely female main cast, and they were all older women.
Groundbreaking.

Golden Girls, no question. Even though we can't say much for its spin-off, Empty Nest.

Golden Girls by a mile!

I grew up with Growing Pains. But I watch the Golden Girls all the time now. I like both.

Growing Pains kicked ass. Kirk Cameron was such a bad-ass. But then again, so was Bea Arthur...

I did grow up with Growing Pains more, and watching episodes from both shows back when I was younger, I found it easier to relate to Growing Pains.

Now, I am so pro-Golden Girls. The wit is just awesome and if you really think about it, their jokes ARE still up to date, especially those involving sexual innuendos and stupidity.

Oh my gahd!

I so so so love the Golden Girls.

I watch it every weekday morning on LifeTime.
