....As a huge fan of the original this sounds terrible, but I'll keep my hopes up I guess?

    The show was great because it followed the kids from middle school to college. Th show matured with the main cast. If it's on Disney Channel then it will forever be a show for children.

    Does that sound weird?

    While that's not necessarily the case... I vaguely remember reruns showing on Disney Channel for a few years, but they edited them all to hell so they could remain "kid-friendly"

    But I still agree with you.

    It's really disgusting the way NBC treats it.

    Yep. "Instead of airing it on October 14th like we've been advertising for months, we're just going to air it...whenever. Because, uh, people really seem to like Revolution?"

    I think they just didn't like Harmon and now that he's gone they're taking it out on his show.

    My initial thought was "wasn't this done before, when it was called Clarissa Explains It All?"

    Honestly, not holding much hope for this one.

    I have mixed feelings on this...

    Would a continuation of Boy Meets World be cool? Sure. I was bummed when that show =/

    This whole thing makes me iffy though...

    1) Disney Sucks at Sitcoms, especially ones where the show and cast grow up (I agree with MMB7)
    2) I because attached to the old cast... I do not want to start with a new one (I don't care if Corey, and Topanga are in it. I want Eric, Shawn, and the rest to be in it too =/)

    I think everything would have been better in a reunion type film (A movie where everyone gets back together, and we find out how much they grown during the years that show wasn't airing)...

    I'll still give this show a shot though.

    I just hope they continue with the whole growing older thing

    It's children's television. You're not meant to like it.

    It can't be worse than the orginal. Ben Savage is sooooo bad.

    Six of one, half a dozen of the other. It means the target audience by definition doesn't really care about the things more discerning viewers would.

    Is anyone in this thread currently less than 14 years old? Else why would you watch thi....oh, wait, this is the internet. If 4chan tells them to watch, they'll watch.

    Boy Meets World was a family show. This will be a kids show. That's why it sucks.

    Amazed at the backlash toward the original show here.

    Boy Meets World was far from a masterpiece, but few shows of the type were as consistently fresh and witty as it, and it all taught us a thing or two growing up.

    Right, but is it the sort of show you'd watch now? I'm sure it was great for you when you were 10 or 12. And this new show will be the same for the current generation.

    Never heard of this show. But this idea looks like it STINKS!

    And few shows were not as down right sappy and over dramatic.

    Outside of a few key moments, not really.

    Yes I would and do. It reruns on MTV2 all the time. It's a family show just like Modern Family or The Middle.

    I mean, yes, it may be slightly more clean cut and cheesier than those shows, but it was all due to the time period and what was acceptable back on family sitcoms, and out of just about every show of it's ilk (with the exception of maybe Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) it definitely pushed that envelope more often than not.

    Not anymore than your typical sitcom.

    I don't know what Boy Meets World you were watching, but the later episodes are downright a cartoon in most places.

    I dunno, do people ever watch reruns of older shows and movies ever? Has anyone watched, like, Ghostbusters after the age of 10? Mulan? Shrek? Literally any other family thing ever? I like to think that sometimes, some people do

    It's ridiculous to say that people at our age wouldn't watch a particular thing now because we're too old for it, especially when a show such as this may have been a favorite show of ours when we were young. Unless you're implying that it's ridiculous that anyone would consider this their favorite show, which is an equally ridiculous statement in its own right

    RilesI actually watch a lot of older shows. The week I have been watching Salute Your Shorts almost every night before I go to sleep. I am not a fan of most modern TV shows.
