I haven’t actually posted any legit blog post on tumblr ever, I’m just constantly reblogging hot Ian Somerhalder pictures, adorable kittens and anything I find funny or pretty. But I feel like I need to rant about my feelings on this and this is the best place to do it (I need so much more than 140 characters).
When I first found out about the prospect of the sequel, I cringed a little inside. That being said it’s not because I don’t like Boy Meets World - It’s one of my favourite sitcoms of all time (following Friends of course). I actually just got all the seasons recently and finished rewatching the entire series this summer and loved every minute of it. And yet now that the news of the sequel has been confirmed, I’m still not screaming with all the other fangirlies. Here’s why.
Friends did a sequel called Joey, where he moves out to LA and continues in his attempt to make it as an actor. None of the other original Friends cast ended up doing the show, although Joey mentioned Chandler once or twice. The show flopped (I think it did make it through a full season though), and it was just such a disappointment for Joey’s character. Every other character from Friends got their perfect ending - Chandler and Monica had their babies and new house, Rachel and Ross were back together, and Pheobe and Mike were happy and mentioned starting a family of their own. Poor Joey is the only one who’s ending wasn’t perfect.
Usually when I watch Friends is in rerun I’m able to completely pretend that the show Joey never happened. But I still get a little mad when I think about the sequel and how it did not do Friends justice at all. It was disappointing and did not give us satisfaction for the character. I dutifully watched the show every week, and it wasn’t horrible or anything like that, but it left much to be desired and didn’t even hold a candle to Friends.
Back to the sequel of Boy Meets World. I will watch the show for as long as it’s on. I’m sure that on the night of the premiere my fangirlie heart will burst with glee. It’ll be very interesting to see Cory and Topanga with over a dozen years of married life on them and two kids (they’ve fudged on the timeline a little bit but I suppose I can let this go). I’m just worried about them tainting Boy Meets World. When I watched the finale this year I bawled my eyes out, again. When Cory, Topanga, Shawn and Eric leave Feeny’s class one by one and say their goodbyes, we were all able to appreciate the growth of each character. All stories were neatly tied up, everyone was happy (even though Shawn didn’t end up with Angela… the one thing I wished could have been different). When Feeny said class dismissed, we were ready to say goodbye to the characters. It felt finished.
Cory and Topanga are one of my favourite TV couples of all time. What if the writers do strange things with them? Without even having watched the show we know Cory is a teacher. I don’t know how I feel about any of it! And what if we find out that Cory and Shawn didn’t remain Cory and Shawn? Won’t that break everyone’s heart? How can they handle this in a way that will be unique enough to be successful, and yet true enough to the original to keep the fans happy. It’s a tall order. I’m happy that they’re sticking with the original creator, Michael Jacobs, and of course I’m sure Ben and Danielle will help maintain the integrity of the show. Even watching them in the background as their daughter takes center stage will be weird. I just don’t know.
On a more optimistic note, I’m happy that Ben and Danielle are doing it! Obviously if they couldn’t there’d be no show. I think it’s clear how special Boy Meets World is to them, and it’s comforting to know that they care about maintaining the integrity of the show through this project!
Boy Meets World will remain one of my favorite shows of all times. The relationships of Cory and Topanga, and of Cory and Shawn, will remain the best of the best. The show ended perfectly in my opinion (with the exception of Shawn and Angela breaking up… that was seriously unnecessary… maybe they could reveal that they ended up together? That would make it more worthwhile for me).
Why build on something that ended so beautifully? Perhaps the future which each fan built in their own mind for the characters is better than what they’ll show us. This is my fear. And once we all see where they’ve taken the characters, we can’t unsee it.
That all sounded pretty cynical, but I don’t want one of my favourite shows to be tainted! If it’s not good, hopefully we can all erase it from our memories and just pretend that Feeny’s “Class dismissed” was the true ending. Hopefully it’ll be amazing - I am very interested to see how this turns out.
LOSING MY BALANCE
Stefan Salvatore is so incredibly complex, intriguing, deep and multi-layered character. I love everything about him.
