With 'Girl Meets World' streaming ahead of its June 27 premiere date, the pilot episode ultimately fails to live up to expectations.
Whether Boy Meets World was a part of your childhood from the very beginning or wasn’t something you experienced until later in your teens, it’s safe to say that anyone that had a connection with the television show never exactly grew out of it. The timeless sitcom had a charm to it that kept it relevant for years well after its conclusion over 14 years ago. Since then, people have been calling for a movie, or a reunion episode -- anything that would allow some more Cory and Topanga in our lives. Well, we got our wish with Girl Meets World, but it sadly just doesn’t live up to expectations.
Rowan Blanchard is Riley in Girl Meets World
Girl Meets World still gets the benefit of the doubt for a few reasons: 1. The theme song is amazing, 2. We really, really hope the series turns out as good as it could be, and 3. It’s only the pilot episode. With that said, the first episode streaming online before its airing on June 27 was extremely disappointing. First off, Girl Meets World desperately tries to recreate Boy Meets World’s magic by emulating the same exact characters: the main character Riley, who is Cory and Topanga’s daughter, has a best friend Maya -- she’s basically the female version of Shawn Hunter, but not nearly as cool. Meanwhile, one of Maya and Riley’s classmates, a kid named Farkle, is quite obviously supposed to be the new Minkus, but much more obnoxious, and it’s not in a good way.

Rowan Blanchard definitely looks the part of Corey and Topanga's daughter
We finally got a look in at Corey and Topanga’s daughter, 12 year old Riley Matthews, played by Rowan Blanchard. Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, who played Corey and Topanga respectively in the original Boy Meets World, also pop up, making fans of BMW extremely nostalgic to see their favourite characters all grown up. However, it was heart warming to see that the childhood sweethearts are still happily together, although this is Disney, we doubt there will be a disasterous divorce sub-plot!

Since the popular 90s show Boy Meets World finished, speculation has been rife as to whether a spin off would be made. So when Girl Meets World was announced, naturally, speculation turned towards who would play the girl meeting the world.
Disney has cast 11-year-old singer-actress Rowan Blanchard in the title role, as Girl Meets World producer Michael Jacobs told EW. "As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews," he said. She will play the daughter of Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel), who, as the Disney Channel announced, will be reprising their roles as beloved '90s TV couple. "Rowan is real and accessible, and I am hopeful this girl is about to meet a world that will love growing up with her as well," added Jacobs.
"No one wanted to really cash in, if you will, too early, or no one really wanted to do something that was going to be cheesy. So when we all decided to get together for this, there were a lot of discussions," Savage told the Rolling Stone. "I've gotten [notes] from a lot of people who are worried that the show won't hold up. That we shouldn't do it because it's going to ruin a lot of their childhood memories. We're really working hard and doing everything we can to make sure that this is going to be something special and funny, and hopefully it'll make new memories for a new generation."
