Their daughter, Riley, faces life lessons through her family, friends, and school--where her father is her history teacher--as her parents did when they were younger.More than a decade after Boy Meets World (1993), Cory and Topanga Matthews are married and have two children.

Riley is very obnoxious and annoying. Very unlikable and has no distinct personality. Her character is inconsistent. One minute she's a smart straight A student, then others shes a complete idiot. She's weird too. Gives herself awards in the school hallway?? WTF??? Rowan Blanchard is a horrible actress with her cartoon facial expressions, nasally voice, and tending to smile during her serious moments of dialogue. She's also a princess Mary Sue who never gets in trouble, always gets her way, has 3 guys fawning over, everyone loves her, straight A student, nice house, loving family. Little miss perfect! She has no hobbies or interest except obsessing over a boy who has no personality.
Maya is the breakout star and the only good actor on this show. You know something's wrong with the show when the best friend is overshadowing the main character in acting, personality, and likability. She can be annoying at times though. I wished they stopped this poor Maya, woe is me shtick, it's getting old since she's got a great life. Maya also being the new Shawn is laughable. Maya is supposedly poor with her designer clothes/shoes, nice mother, cool bedroom, perfect hair. Give me a break..... Her and Riley's relationship is unhealthy and cloying. They might as well be conjoined twins at birth always together by the hip.
Farkle went from an creepy Urkel ripoff who stalks the girls to a normal boring guy who stopped being funny with zero personality. Corey Fogelmanis is a terrible actor who has gotten worse since he changed his look. All his line readings are monotone with no inflection. Is is happy, sad, or angry. I can't tell because his acting is so emotionless. Girlfriend Smackle is lame and her name is stupid.
Lucas is the boring love interest with no personality. He's also a Gary Stu who all the girls love and tell him how handsome he is. This guy has zero flaws and doesn't act like a real junior high school boy. Way too mature and wordily for his age. Going into Season 3 and he has zero character development. Peyton Meyer has no acting talent whatsoever. He's emotionless, wooden, and very stiff. His career will be over when the show ends. Riley and Lucas have zero chemistry and feel forced.
Cory being a teacher was a terrible idea and feels forced. Has no backbone and lets his class walk all over him. He's no Feeny and he's following his students to High School. Wow...how original.
Topanga is useless and might as well not be here. She's just the generic bland nice mom. Fishel must be doing this for a paycheck because her acting is terrible.
Auggie sucks! The kid is a terrible actor and adds nothing to the show. Morgan was funnier and better. Judy Winslow his character please! Should have never scrapped the older brother big mistake. His girlfriend friend Ava is annoying too. Their scenes/plots are a waste of time.
Zay was thrown in Season 2 as the token black. His character is is the only one in the group that's act like a real kid/teenager.
This show is not realistic or relate-able at all. The girls dress like fashion runway models with their high heels and hair salon perfect curled hair. Kids walking out of class, kids ruling the school, talking in class whenever the feel like. Unrealistic dialogue (why do these kids talk like they're 30 years old)Stupid love triangle?? These kids are 12 years old!!! Give me a break! They live in New York City and no Blacks or Hispanics. Friends 2.0
And is this a sitcom or a drama? Always preaching and beating the audience over the head with their morals and life lessons. Way too melodramatic. Where's the funny comedy? All these miserable kids do is sit around and mope about dumb stuff. Do these kids ever have fun? Go to the movies, shop at the mall, go to parties. Come on, act like real teenagers.
Sabrina Carpenter deserves better! I can't wait until she gets off this piece of trash excuse of a show that does not deserved that 7.1 rating.
