Cory and Topanga, America’s couple, will be back as Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel have signed on to reprise their signature roles for a pilot episode.
According to TVline.com, the show will be told through the eyes of their 13-year-old daughter Riley. There have also been reports that Cory will basically take over the Mr. Feeny role, teaching Riley’s class and in my opinion, will somehow teach her and her friends until they graduate college.
Would the delightful William Daniels return as the ultimate TV show teacher George Feeny?
Who could forget the trailer park raised, leather jacket wearing, kiss the girls and make them cry, rebel without a cause, ultimate best friend?
I found it quite irritating towards the end of the show’s run of how absurdly over-the-top Eric’s character became. He went from being the cool older brother Cory looks up to, to the low IQ, ridiculously over the top goofball brother who couldn’t do one damn thing right. (But then again, Topanga became the weird, smart girl who used lipstick to draw on her face and draw “ew’s” from Cory into the smart, attractive girl who Cory adored since they were two-years-old.)
I picture Eric coming back for the slapstick portion of the show.
Frankie and I have written about this one before.
As you can see, most of my favorites were part of the earlier part of the show’s run. I thought the show was at its very charming and clever best. I hope Girl Meets World follows more of that model than the zany, shell of its old self, show it eventually became.
