As a child that grew up on Boy Meets World, I had to check out Girl Meets World.”Girl Meets World” introduces Riley, the daughter of Cory and Topanga Matthews, and older sister to Auggie Matthews in a series that comes nearly two decades after the beloved hit comedy “Boy Meets World” premiered on ABC-TV. “Girl Meets World” is geared towards kids 6-14 and families. “Boy Meets World” still airs regularly on ABC Family.
The series focuses on relationships with family and friends and the important, indelible values therein as the curious Riley and her bold best friend, Maya, traverse the twists and turns of teenage years at Manhattan’s John Quincy Adams Middle School .
I finally checked out the first episode and I loved seeing Corey and Topanga again. Corey is now the teacher and has his daughter, Riley, in his class. Some of the student “types” are throwbacks to the original Boy Meets World. I really enjoyed the show and the end had me tearing up. I am curious to see how this show pans out. The end of the first show had me crying as they showed an homage to Mr. Finney.
High school sweethearts Cory and Topanga have their hands full, juggling their careers and the needs of their almost teenaged daughter and precocious five-year-old, Auggie. Cory must walk a thin line between being Riley’s dad and teacher while also allowing her to explore her world and make her own mistakes. Topanga, a loving and devoted mother, searches for a way to balance the demands of her successful law practice with the needs of her family and ultimately becomes involved in an interesting business venture.
The series was created by Michael Jacobs (“Boy Meets World,” “Dinosaurs,” “My Two Dads,” “Charles In Charge”) and April Kelly (“Boy Meets World”). The writing team is comprised of Mark Blutman, Jeff Menell and Matthew Nelson (from “Boy Meets World”) and Cindy Fang, Lauren Otero and Randi Barnes.
If you haven’t already, make it a point to catch this show.
