This week on TV we, here a the Daily Geekette, watched even more shows than last week. We’ve shared our thoughts on the latest episodes of everything from Sleepy Hollow to Criminal Minds, plus the beloved Flash and Arrow. This post does include spoilers, so read on with care!
I grew up watching Boy Meets World. I shipped Cory/Topanga before I knew what shipping was. I took the wise word of Plays-With-Squirrels to heart, and I even watched the finale as it aired and cried my heart out. So when I heard about the plans for a continuation of that universe, focused on Cory & Topanga’s daughter? I was ALL in.
The pilot will officially air on Friday June 27, 2014, but it’s already been released to the Watch Disney tablet app and by extension is now making the rounds of the internet. It’s even FREE on iTunes! So, SPOILERS AHEAD, DUH.
Does the long-awaited Girl Meets World live up to the hype?
Since late 2012, I’ve been eagerly gobbling up every bit of information I can find about a certain spin-off that’s about to debut on the Disney Channel this summer. That is, of course, Girl Meets World, the anticipated follow-up to Boy Meets World which ran from 1993 to 2000.
The original series was a school-based comedy that cleverly balanced quirky characters with life-lesson plotlines. It eventually expanded to follow characters like Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence through high school and college. It was, in essence, a show you could grow up with.
Girl Meets World seems to be getting back to those original roots. Topanga and Cory, whose marriage was one of the milestones of the original series, are now happily settled in New York City and balancing their careers with their
three two kids. Rowan Blanchard plays the titular ‘girl’ Riley Matthews, the oldest of two Matthews children. Meet her and her best friend Maya Hart (Sabrina Carpenter) in the trailer below.
