Not even close to the original
24 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As an fan of the original Boy Meets World, Girl Meets World was definitely something I was excited for. Once I saw that it was a Disney show, I became hesitant, but still entered with an open mind. The first thing you notice is the return of Topanga and Cory Matthews. And that's essentially the only good part of the show. The problem with GMW is mainly that started on Disney, which meant the show had to start with bad actors, bad plot, horrible scripts and cheesy morals. Even Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage (Topanga and Cory) who were great actors in the original show, have become silhouettes of those original characters, with extreme overacting and characters that simply aren't believable. Now, onto the main characters; First, there's the MAIN character and daughter of Cory and Topanga, Riley. To be blunt, she is a horrible character and actor. She seems to have no experience and is another shining example of over acting. The charm of Cory from BMW was that he was a good seed who often got in to trouble, and the lessons came from that. The problem with Riley is that her character is a "Beacon Of Perfection". There is never any trouble to be had for her, which means all of the morals have to come from other, rather unimportant things. Like the intense conundrum of "Are we dating?". One thing that comes with the GMW's Disney logo, is the restraint of serious topics. Such as in the original BMW, the episode "Wake Up, Little Cory" which focused on the kids ideas of sex and love. When events transpire and people think Cory slept with Topanga, the real lessons come out. Whereas, because GMW is featured on Disney, this show will never see anything even close to those topics, which really restrains the show. Now, back to the characters. Riley's best friend, Maya is probably the best character on the show. She is there to fulfill the role of Shaun from BMW, but she is nowhere near the same levels of depth that Shaun had. Maya is the most mature character on the show, but she still doesn't go around blowing things up with Cherry Bombs or going on strike in school like Shaun did. She's still a pretty clean character. Then, there's Farkle. He really serves no purpose. He's not the super smart outcast like his father Stuart used to be. He's actually a relatively creepy character. He's constantly taking hits at his female friends, trying to get a date out of them. And I mean constantly. He's just weird. And then we have Lucas, Riley's crush and one of the worst characters on the show. He's flat, shows no emotion ever, definitely can't act and is only there to be the crush/boyfriend character. The only characters that are actually important are Riley and Maya, and you don't even care for them. Whereas, in BMW, you cared for pretty much everyone in Cory's "group".

Anyways, in review, GMW tries to live up to it's predecessor, but it falls very short. If it lost most of it's actors (except Danielle and Ben) and moved to a better channel, like ABC, this show could actually be something. But for now, it's not.
