We did not get cable until I was in fifth grade, so when the new Mickey Mouse Club was taping at MGM* on our first trip in 1993, I was not that interested. However, in middle school I was all about TGIF. My favorites were Sabrina, The Teenage Witch:, Clueless, and Boy Meets World. Maybe because it was funny, relateable, and rarely talked down to its audience, it seems to held a special place in many people’s heart. Without a doubt, this fact was best illustrated at senior week my senior year of college, when a showing of The Graduate was interrupted by people going “OMG, it’s Feeney!’ when William Daniels came out.
As such, although I originally rolled my eyes when Boy Meet World’s sequel, Girl Meets World, was announced. However, I am warming up to the idea. A pudding restaurateur seems much more early Topanga Lawrence Matthews than a law career. And Cory as a middle school history teacher? Perfect. Production has begun. The only thing which could make it better would be Ryder Strong…because what could be more Disney Channel than a bad boy gone good?
Are you looking forward to Girl Meets World? As you know, here is where I usually put in my plug for my Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook, or newsletter! However, I use Google Reader to keep up with a bunch of my blogs (this site’s RSS is here), which is closed as of July 1. I migrated my reader over to Feedly (as it syncs with its own app), but I also know people who swear by Old Reader or bloglovin.
*I was a 1990′s kid, so this was serious once Britney, NSync, etc came out. :)
