10. Sex and the City

Just from reading the basic series descriptions, you may believe Sex and the City is just like Big Little Lies, just created during different times. However, you couldn’t be more wrong. Both shows follow a group of girlfriends, true, but that’s about where the similarities begin and end.

While the women on Big Little Lies deal with intense drama and life-changing events, the women we follow on Sex and the City deal with issues closer to what most of us would call “first world problems.” This isn’t to say the series isn’t great, it is, but let’s not compare the two.

The ladies on Sex and the City are inseparable friends and are always there for each other. They go through rough marriages, divorce, career struggles and everything in between. Sex and the City stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon.

The series premiered on HBO in 1998, running until 2004. Throughout its run, the show earned over 50 Emmy nominations and 24 Golden Globe nominations.

Even after being off the air, the series returned with two TV movies Sex and the City and Sex and the City 2. The CW picked up a prequel series, The Carrie Diaries, that focused on Parker’s character, Carrie.
