Basic Summary – From 1993 to 2000, viewers followed the relationship of Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence-Matthews on “Boy Meets World.” More than a decade later, the couple’s daughter, Riley, is trying to navigate her ‘tween years — and problems that go with them — especially in regard to bonds with family and friends. At John Quincy Adams Middle School in Manhattan, Riley finds being a student more difficult because her dad is a history teacher there, and she’s in his class. Her mom, a lawyer, is involved in her social life and owns a trendy teen hangout. Among Riley’s classmates are best friend Maya, crush Lucas, and quirky Farkle, son of Cory and Topanga’s peer Stuart Minkus.
So way back somewhere on this blog I wrote about Boy Meets World and how it gave some good advice about growing up, well here is its spin-off and dare I say, I actually like this show.
Let’s start off by stating that if you haven’t seen the original Boy Meets World then you are going to be kinda confused by this show a bit. But anyways, I really enjoy the drama that the girls – Riley and Maya – actually go through. It might seem a bit much for most people, but girls do go through this drama. And it sometimes get out of hand. In addition, the co-stars are amazing in assisting if not causing more drama in the show that it makes it worth the 30 min episodes.
Okay now for the Boy Meets World fans, it has the nostalgia feeling as well. It brings old cast members back maybe to tie up story arcs, continue some, or maybe even create some. Either way, it is worth the watch.
Another enjoyment is that it has a great connection to the younger audiences and great enjoyment for parents who grew up with the original show.
If you haven’t watched it and you’ve watched the original show, then go ahead and start.
If you haven’t watched the original show, go ahead and start watching this one. It might get you curious enough to watch the old show as well.
If you have kids, watch it with them.
