Boy Meets World Sequel

Reports are that Disney is really hard up for programming. So much so that they are resurrecting Boy meets world and want to make a sequel called Girl Meets World. The good news is that Disney wants the show to star Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage, who are reportedly being asked if they would be interested. Umm, considering they probably have been camped out looking for work and hoping to get such a break I don't think much convincing will be necessary. You could probably offer them a couple of bucks and a ride to work and they would be all over it. The show would focus on the couple's pre-teen daughter and essentially use the same scripts that were used ten years ago and just change the gender and maybe update the laugh track. Easy peasy lemon squeezy and you have yourself a show. Next on the list is a sequel to Lost called Found.

They're old enough for a pre teen daughter?! I feel old but super psyched for this! If Eric doesn't come back, I won't watch. He's the best part.

Thank you, Enty, for giving me yet another excuse to rant for a second about those idiotic, unoriginal, idea-less, fucktard Hollywood suits. Put some actual creative people to work and have them make some original shit that we all can enjoy on the tv. Jesus.

And this is the company that bought the Star Wars franchise.

I don't know about the rest of you, but now I'm scared.

COREY N TOPANGA 4EVA!!!

No but seriously I don't think this generation would get how great Boy Meets World really was. I can't think of anything thats on today that even comes close

lostathome said...

Disney will ruin this with shitty child actors who aren't funny. Like the rest of their shows. They over act on EVERY SHOW.

I loved this show, and even this couldn't be half as bad as the other crap on television.

MrWolf said...

People didn't realize that Lizzie McGuire and Hannah Montana are in fact the exact same story?

No news here, move along.

emily_h said...

i would watch it!

timebob said...

no @MrWolf Hannah wore a wig! totally different!!

T. E. Cuz said...

i agree @nolachickee! there are so SO many writers, directors, actors, etc out of work in california. people are throwing themselves around trying to find work. Might as well invest in a new show that is different, unpredictable, eye-catching... rather than the same-old stuff that people are tired of.

past box office =\= future box office

wish these la people would figure this out!

Formula for a sit com by today's standards: One way hot mom who obviously married down when she hooked up with the doofus that is now her husband. One older sibling--mid teens who is far more mature and sensible than anyone else in the household (Alex P Keaton lives on), one middle sibling who is shallow and vain and dramatic (sometimes they reverse these two roles depending on genders and to mix things up to make the show edgy and 'new') and one really odd duck of a kid who is quirky and gets all the good lines because it is deemed cute and great entertainment to have a young child be all mouthy and precocious (this child will grow up to join the ranks of former child stars that fail at anything else in life). Add in a few cute friends, some strange neighbors, and grandparents and you have yourself a hit family sitcom.

What do kids and preteens care about? Growing up of course, and their dreams of Hollywood or music industry stardom. Ala Hannah Montana. Do a show like Big, where a kid gets to act like an adult and vice versa, a freaky friday sort of thing. Or a richie rich thing where the rich kid goes to school with normal kids. Kids want to grow up and be rich, be stars etc. Any show that deals with any of those issues will be hits in my humble opinion. there are so many personalities that could carry a show like this, there's a class clown in every class. Empower the geeks, and give feel good disney endings to all episodes.

@audrey - very well written! Sounds like half of the sitcoms I've ever watched. And I stopped watching stuff like this a long time ago.

Kloie said...

Not acceptable unless they bring back Minkus. I mean, One Tree Hill is off the air now. What else does he have to do?

Henriette said...

Why can't they bring back My Name Is Earl? That show was never finished.

FS said...

I follow Danielle Fishel (my girl crush) on twitter. She seems busy enough.

Snowstorms said...

Met Topanga in Costa Rica this summer. She looked great! She was in amazing shape and much prettier than when this show was on. She also had a very good looking, straight boyfriend that Lance Bass would have wanted for himself. How did I know who she was? Evidently the Tico (Costa Rican) boys who worked there, grew up watching her. They were in lust all week. Kind of cute to sit back and watch...

motcollins said...

Yeah, a lot of guys of a certain age had a thing for Topanga.

William Daniels is 85, but he recently did an arc on Grey's Anatomy. At least a cameo by Mr. Feeny would be essential.

Cathy said...

You guys realize that boy meets world was pretty much a reincarnation of the wonder years, right?

All about Eve said...

How are they the same story?

noseygal48 said...

I watch boy meets world every morning before work and I'm almost 30 lol. This sounds dumb but I would probably watch for shits and giggles

jennifer hansen said...

jennifer hansen said...

lizzie mcguire wasn't a singer at night and regular kid at day like hannah montana

jennifer hansen said...

PugsterMom said...

artemis said...

The Wonder Years was amazing.

cinephreak said...

Noseygal- you and I both.
Stoked for this actually.

peacock said...

Too bad the Savages don't have another younger brother/son to follow on with the Wonder Years (on Netflix)/Boy Meets World tradition.
