Drama.

Annnnd boom goes the dynamite. The sequel the world has been holding its breath for is finally upon us. That's fuckin right yo -- coming soon from Disney Star Wars is Girl Meets World. Picking up where the critically acclaimed TGIF series left off, Girl Meets World will follow Cory and Topanga's pre-teen daughter in, uh, elementary? - junior high let's say.

As you can see from my source article, there are already debates going on about how they'll manage the creation of the new show without retconning the old one. Luckily that old classic was written to be interpreted in many ways, so hope of a "flawless victory" does exist.

Some episodes were ok, most were trash. But I will say this, It was an intelligent show aimed at children that grew with its audience. You don't see that much these days.

#3 Posted by JacDG (2124 posts) -

Fuck. That. Boy Meets world was really awesome, remember watching it when I was a kid (around 10-12) and loving the hell out of it, so this will naturally suck.

I can't decide if this is the most hilarious or most depressing entertainment news I've heard in a while

#5 Posted by Sanity (1906 posts) -

Interesting.... I think it has no chance in hell of being anything close to the original but it really all depends on who they get to play the girl and if they make it watchable for adults.

#6 Posted by Serpentenema (217 posts) -

Like the advent of those kind of shows has really passed, but hopefully it isn't bad.

There's also a Casablanca sequel in the works.

Why, Hollywood.

#8 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

I always found it incredibly amusing when the show tried to cover something serious. Like when Cory's friend was dating a black woman and his dad or someone was making a big deal out of it. The cheesiness of it all made laugh.

Is Feeny still teaching?

#10 Edited by PenguinDust (12512 posts) -

I'd much prefer someone bringing back The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Anyway, Disney Channel comedies are pretty much the new TGIF, so shows of that variety are bound to show up. Look at Wizards of Waverly Place. It's basically a new version of Sabrina The Teenage Witch.

They've got a show about a talking dog airing now. You know, average whitebread family who own a talking dog. You're expecting more from a network that greenlights something with that premise? The show makes Small Wonder look like Shakespeare. Over on Disney XD there's another gem which stars a hyperactive puppet. I am expecting a series about a chimpanzee who teaches multiracial inner city kids next.

#12 Posted by MyNiceIceLife (621 posts) -

i'm oddly happy that this will happen, and once i'm done watching Bones i'll probably pick up the DVDs for Boy Meets World cause i remember loving the show.

#13 Posted by PokeIkzai (385 posts) -

I'm going to watch it. I just hope it retains some of the same flavor of what made Boy Meets World so great. (Also I don't know if I want it to be exclusively about the girl but who knows?)

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

Pretty much agree.

The two tied the knot in the final episode and now bosses at the Disney Channel are developing a new program about the couple's lives as parents to a pre-teen daughter

Ehh I don't know about this...

I'm still waiting for Boy Has One Night Stand with World.

Holy shit... what next, The New Family Matters?

#20 Posted by OmegaChosen (645 posts) -

Undapants.

#21 Posted by yoshisaur (2719 posts) -

I see nothing wrong with Disney trying to modernize a great show for today's generation. I loved Boy Meets World while growing up, why shouldn't my kids do so as well?

I really can't decide whether this is going to destroy my childhood early morning ritual memories, or just make me kind of annoyed.

Fred Savage is 36 and was born in Chicago so he will be our next president.

#28 Posted by IzzyGraze (850 posts) -

Yeeeeeessss! I don't care. This will be awesome or...you know...kinda ok and everyone will forget about it. I used to watch Boy meets world all the time. I probably won't watch much of this one but I will watch the shit out of that first episode.

But who could possibly pick up the mantle of Freshness?

I don't have any dog in this race, really. I never watched Boy Meets World for some reason. I was probably too young for it when it was on. I do think it would be pretty fascinating for an actor to reprise a childhood role after growing up, though.

#31 Posted by CornBREDX (5255 posts) -

How do you make a sequel to a TV show?

#32 Posted by iceman228433 (616 posts) -

@CornBREDX: From what I read they will be the parents now and there Daughter will be the star of the show.

#33 Posted by CornBREDX (5255 posts) -
@iceman228433: Wouldn't that be a spin off?

I'd still say ah-wooga to Topanga.

Also... I never made that connection until just now.

I actually enjoyed the show a bit. I probably won't watch the sequel but hopefully it doesn't suck!

Yeah, flip flopped those two. Ben is only 32 so he can't be president until 2016.

Dude, awesome. Boy Meets World was really fantastic at times. Glad to see another generation will have something sort of similar.

I really enjoyed Boy Meets World. So, I'm iffy on this news. Also,

I don't recall this episode.

#46 Posted by HarlequinRiot (1098 posts) -

I'm sure kids will like and adults will think it's terrible, like every other show people have nostalgia for. With that said though, I loved that show when I was younger.

#47 Posted by Hunter5024 (5667 posts) -

Any word on whether the old actors will reappear? I can't imagine them doing this without Feeny at the very least.
