Revisiting this three and a half years later. It should be important to have both works come first for the comparison. Take the Inspector Gadget example for instance. It's described as RoboCop meets Maxwell Smart. The former didn't exist in 1983 when Inspector Gadget came out. Would The Six Million Dollar Man make more sense to fit the mold?

Since this tends to come up on occasion, is it really a problem if you include a work that came after the work you're comparing it to, such as saying Mortal Kombat has flavours of Stargate and Game Of Thrones despite the latter two coming out afterwards?
