'Golden is the New Black' is a hilarious new parody that enmeshes the current Netflix original series Orange is the New Black with an old favorite: The Golden Girls.

It's true, sometimes the series makes women's prison look a little more fun than one might expect; filled with surprisingly tender moments, comedic relief and a general sense of sisterhood, Orange is the New Black can make you feel like prison is more of a summer camp for adults, rather than an actual punishment.

Set to the theme song of the Golden Girls, you really get the sense the show is more of a sitcom than a dramedy. For, what is Big Red if not a modern-day Sophia Petrillo? And who could deny the similarities between prison nympho Nicky Nichols and sex-crazed socialite Blanche Devereaux? One thing is for certain, the Golden Girls would definitely run the Litchfield penitentiary.
