Raise your hand if you were madly excited about Girl Meets World. *Raises Hand*
Now raise your hand again if you were highly disappointed. *Raises Hand Again*
When Disney announced that they were bringing Corey and Topanga back as parents in a sequel/spin-off of Boy Meets World I along with every other 90’s kid was ecstatic. They were bringing back real and honest tv for kids, so even at 22 I knew I would enjoy it.
I downloaded the pilot episode off of iTunes, which they might still have for free. (FYI)
Anyways the fact that it is so cliche is my main pet peeve. It’s most likely because I’m a little older than the targeted age group, but I don’t need to be told the meaning of Girl Meets World. That’s how they started the episode which makes it worse. It made me feel dumb, like I wasn’t going to get the concept. Then they went and pushed quite a few of the major life lessons learned throughout several seasons of Boy Meets World, like respecting the adults in your life, loving yourself while still trying to find out exactly who you are, sticking up for your not always good friends, even when they’re wrong, and that’s just to name a few, all into one 30 minute eppisode. Overkill much?
Now I didn’t hate everything, in fact I really enjoyed the cast and how everyone is exactly how they should be. Plus who can say that bringing “FEE-NAY” back was not the best thing ever?
So all in all as cliché as this show is, I’ll probably still continue to watch it. I don’t have a burning desire anymore, but I might catch it from time to time. But hey maybe today’s Disney watchers will really enjoy the show because it seems right up they’re ally.
