On Monday night, May 11, 2015 at 8:30pm ET/PT season two of the Disney Channel show “Girl Meets World” will debut. Unless you have kids in the 6-14 year old age range you may not be aware of this show. Who knows, even if you do have kids in that age range, you may not know what you are missing. My husband and I have been watching “Girl Meets World” since episode 1 and it is truly an enjoyable show. Compared to most of what is currently available for this age group on TV, “Girl Meets World” has heart, good writing, great acting and…a life lesson in each episode.
About Girl Meets World
“Girl Meets World” introduces Riley, the daughter of Cory and Topanga Matthews, and older sister to Auggie Matthews in a series that comes nearly two decades after the beloved hit comedy “Boy Meets World” premiered on ABC-TV.
The series focuses on relationships with family and friends and the important, indelible values therein as the curious Riley and her bold best friend, Maya, traverse the twists and turns of teenage years at Manhattan’s John Quincy Adams Middle School where Riley’s dad is their History teacher. Among their classmates is an intelligent and quirky boy named Farkle and Riley’s crush, Lucas, who has relocated from Texas and is adjusting to life in the city with his new friends.
Riley is still learning how to be comfortable in her own skin and often turns to her parents for guidance. Best friend Maya appears to have a ton of self-confidence but often leans on the Matthews family when she struggles over her relationship with her single mother. Although opposites, Riley and Maya strike the perfect balance as friends and as individuals – all while putting themselves in situations that show them who they are and who they want to be.
High school sweethearts Cory and Topanga have their hands full, juggling their careers and the needs of their almost teenaged daughter and precocious five-year-old, Auggie. Cory must walk a thin line between being Riley’s dad and teacher while also allowing her to explore her world and make her own mistakes. Topanga, a loving and devoted mother, searches for a way to balance the demands of her successful law practice with the needs of her family and ultimately becomes involved in an interesting business venture.
Season One hasn’t made it to Netflix yet, hopefully it will arrive with the other Disney Channel shows soon. You can watch a few of the recent episodes on the Watch Disney Channel app or website.
I suggest you watch “Girl Meets World” as a family. I’m sure each episode will create a jumping off point for some great family discussions. You won’t be disappointed and hopefully you will be happy knowing that there is still safe, entertaining and education television available for your family.
