It’s finally here! Well, sort of. The ‘Watch Disney’ app released the first episode to watch before it airs on TV and let me say this… I REALLY LIKED IT! Almost as much as the theme song! (Seriously, have you heard that theme song? It’s like Mumford & Son’s younger sister! So catchy, hear it above!)
Anyway, The show is about Riley Matthews, who is growing up fast and finding her own world. I love how this is a Spin-off but kind of a remake in its own way. We get everyone we loved in “Boy Meets World” played by new characters.
Riley Matthews – The new Corey Matthews
Maya – The new Shawn Hunter
Lucas – The new Topanga
Auggie Matthews – The New Morgan
Farkle – The new Minkus
Topanga – The new Amy Matthews
…and of coarse there’s Corey Matthews who is the new Alan Matthews & the new Mr. Feeney!
Can you tell who’s missing? The new
Eric Matthews! Originally, there was a new Eric character but the actor was let go for creative reasons. I for one think that was a mistake. The goofy older brother should’ve stayed! But oh well…
Overall, the first episode was great. It was funny from both the newbies and the originals. I love that there was still the melodramatic “life lessons” and yet still kept the humor. Especially Farkle, he’s great!
I really think this was such a smart idea from Disney. I don’t think there has ever been a disney show with so much buzz before! Even us 27 year olds are going a little nuts! 🙂
