Tgif just doesn't mean what it used to. If you're of a certain age, you probably remember the good old days when you would curl up on the couch at at 8 p.m. on a Friday evening and watch programming for 2 hours straight that seemed perfectly designed to fit your entertainment needs. One of those programs was the beloved "Boy Meets World." The coming-of-age comedy has since been spun off into "Girl Meets World" on the Disney Channel, but we'll never forget the original and all the joy it brought us throughout its 7 season run. Let's revisit some moments from the show and make our Fridays that much more fun. Tgif, indeed.

It’s a Boy Meets World reunion once again! Let’s face it, who doesn’t squeal like Cory when Shawn walks into a room? I personally agree with Riley on the whole “We found him on the couch, can we keep him?” plan. This is exhibit A that Riley is Cory’s daughter, and Shawn already commented on the hair, so let’s get that obvious fact on the table. I’ve personally been very impressed with Girl Meets World as a show. It’s been years since I’ve seen a show specifically targeted for adolescence pack in so many important life lessons. I’m doubly impressed that it has done so without the snarky, disrespectful comebacks and unrealistic antics which younger children who watch these shows try to imitate. And now with all of these reunions coming up (Feeny!), I’m glued to a show that I »

The 1987 comedy Adventures in Babysitting is getting a remake for the Disney Channel. I really liked the original Elizabeth Shue movie when I was younger, probably because I had a crush on her. This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard about the classic '80s flick being remade, though. Back in 2007 there was news that Raven Symone was going to star in the remake, but she’s no longer involved.
The movie follows the further adventures in babysitting and “recounts a dull evening for two competing babysitters, Jenny, played by Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World), and Luci, played by Sofia Carson (Descendants), that turns into an adventure as they hunt for a kid who somehow snuck away.”
The original film was great, and there’s no way the remake will be as good. The first movie was rated PG-13 and contained the F-word twice, which is a »

Avert your eyes, Angela! Let's be honest, one of the very best things about Disney Channel's Girl Meets World has been seeing many of our beloved Boy Meets World characters stop by. And our favorite alum to return? Shawn (Rider Strong), Cory's (Ben Savage) Bff, of course! And it looks like we're not the only ones who love having Uncle Shawn back in the gang as Cory and his daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) are looking to give him a reason to sticking around: a new love interest. In the exclusive photo above from tonight's episode, "Girl Meets Master Plan," the father and daughter-duo are trying to set Shawn up...with her Bff Maya's (Sabrina Carpenter) mother., played »
The "Boy Meets World" crew is back together again! Ben Savage took to Twitter on Wednesday to share an anazing reunion photo with his former costars on the set of "Girl Meets World." "The Feeny Crew," Savage captioned the cute candid, featuring costars Danielle Fishel, Rider Strong and William Daniels.Let's be honest ... we will always call these Tgif favorites Cory Matthews, Topanga Lawrence, Shawn Hunter and Mr. Feeny.While Will Friedle (Aka Eric Matthews) was Mia, he's still around for Season Two of the series. "Shawn, Eric and Mr. Feeny will be an important part of season 2," the "Girl Meets World" writers tweeted back in December. "Lives will change. People will grow. People won’t… We just completed two shows with William Daniels. The cast went to Mr. Feeny’s house to retrieve something from the past." Just last month, Ben shared another snapshot from Mr. Feeny's house, writing, »

Talk about a Wu’d awakening.
Sgt. Drew Wu, the last of Grimm‘s regular characters to be in the dark about Wesen, had an epiphany of sorts at the end of the midseason finale.
He ran into a chupacabra, he then considered that experience in light of all the other hinky goings-on he’s witnessed in Portland, and he realized that fairy-tale creatures really do exist.
Worse, when Wu confronted Nick and Hank, he realized his friends had known all along… and had been lying to him the whole time.
Star Reggie Lee says Wu’s anger (and shame, »
TVLine has a pair of exclusive shots from tomorrow’s episode, appropriately titled “Girl Meets Master Plan,” in which Team Matthews attempts to play matchmaker. But why is Maya tied up in the second photo? Could she be trying to put a stop to her mother’s rendezvous with Shawn?

Back in 2012, it was revealed that Disney was developing a remake to the cult 1987 comedy Adventures in Babysitting, with Raven-Symone and Miley Cyrus both linked to the film, which was going by the title of Further Adventures of Babysitting.
Given the complete lack of news since that point, it was assumed that the project had since fallen apart. However, Disney Channel has now announced that the remake is going ahead as a TV movie, and will star Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World) and Sofia Carson (Austin & Ally) as two rival babysitters looking to track down a missing kid.
The original Adventures in Babysitting marked the directorial debut of Chris Columbus and saw Elisabeth Shue leading the cast. A success at both the box office and on home video, it spawned a 1989 TV pilot starring Jennifer Guthrie, which failed to get a series order.
Filming on Further Adventures in Babysitting is »

Sabrina Carpenter ("Girl Meets World") and Sofia Carson ("Disney's Descendants") are set to star in "Further Adventures in Babysitting," a Disney Channel original telemovie said to be "inspired by" Chris Columbus‘ 1987 comedy classic "Adventures in Babysitting" (aka. "A Night on the Town").
The original starred Elizabeth Shue as a babysitter who winds up getting into some crazy situations with three kids she’s supposed to be babysitting. While it performed only so-so at the box-office, it became a big hit on video and TV. These days it's seen as a seminal film of the decade like "The Goonies" and "The Breakfast Club".
An attempt was made back in 2007 to remake it with Raven Symone, that version thankfully fell through. This telemovie take will be penned by Tiffany Paulsen ("Nancy Drew") and deals with two competing babysitters who go on the hunt for a missing child.

Sabrina Carpenter, who plays sassy sidekick Maya on Gmw, will front Further Adventures in Babysitting, which is described as “inspired by the hugely popular 1980s film” that starred my teen crush, Elisabeth Shue. As told here, two rival babysitters (played by Carpenter and Sofia Carson, of Disney Channel’s upcoming Descendants) have an adventure in the big city as they race to find a misplaced kid.
Meanwhile, Rowan Blanchard aka Gmw’s titular girl will star in Invisible Sister, a »
Blanchard (pictured right) will star in live-action adventure/comedy “Invisible Sister,” based on Beatrice Colin and Sara Pinto’s novel “My Invisible Sister,” with fellow Disney actress Paris Berelc who can currently be seen in Xd’s “Mighty Med.” Blanchard will play a girl whose science project takes a wrong turn, causing her popular sister to become completely invisible.

Stop everything. The 1987 film classic Adventures in Babysitting is coming back. Disney announced on Friday, Jan. 9, that it's remaking the Chris Columbus-directed action comedy into a TV movie -- well, sort of. Girl Meets World star Sabrina Carpenter and Austin & Ally's Sofia Carson are set to star in the project, which will be loosely based on the flick. Further Adventures in Babysitting will center on two competitive babysitters, Jenny (Carpenter) and Luci (Carson), who find themselves searching New York City to find one of [...] »
Chris Columbus' "Adventures in Babysitting" is one of those Disney movies that is really quite good but gets glossed over a lot of the time because it wasn't a big hit when it was released and the studio has never really gotten behind it since (although, somewhat surprisingly, a high definition 25th anniversary edition was released on Blu-ray). While a sequel or remake or something has been floated around over the past decade, with both Raven Symone and Miley Cyrus having been linked to the project, it looks like things are finally getting underway on a proper follow-up (according to AdWeek). That's right folks, coming soon to the Disney Channel is.... "Further Adventures in Babysitting."
Set to debut in 2016, almost 30 years after the original film was released (shortly after Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg came to Disney and injected fresh blood and a new sensibility), "Further Adventures in Babysitting »
