    Disney should be sent to detention for passing off such aural plasticity [laugh track], unfairly fouling the repute of the live-audience sitcom. But the rest of Girl Meets World does its job of bringing tween-based family viewing into the 2010s.

    Replicating the beats of that previous show isn’t as important to Girl Meets World’s potential for success as reviving the spirit of its inspiration. It’s there in measured doses in the pilot, bolstering the broader jokes, staged performances from child actors, and requisite feints toward classroom puppy love.

    A cute half-hour that capably introduces new characters and sets the table for the new series.

    This is, without a doubt, a show for and about teens.

    Girl Meets World does improve significantly after the pilot, but it has yet to recapture the warm spirit that made Boy Meets World shine. [27 Jun 2014, p.58]

    It has more of the feel of a traditional family sitcom than the louder, jokier competition on Nickelodeon, but the humor is still pretty broad and the plotting blunt for anyone outside that age group.

    Girl Meets World is hammier than a Smithfield Foods factory.

    I don't just like it, I love it. I LOVE IT. i LOVE it. III love it!!!!

    This has renewed my faith in television. So good to have a great tv show with a positive message. Really good. Great characters, fun/fresh writing, it appeals to me as a 30 year old, my sister as a 15 year old, and runs the whole gambit.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. My theory is that if you hate it, don't comment. Certainly don't insult. Professional reviewers (as opposed to critics) loved Rowan's performance.

    I love it. It captures the spirit of BMW. Like that series this one allows the kids to discover truth and how the "world" works guided and pointed by their parents. It feels good all the way through.

    And while the line "Well done, Mr. Matthews," is poignant, what is left unsaid, though it is very apropos, "Well done, Ms. Matthews."

    The new characters are engaging and most of the episodes mix perfectly heartfelt drama and comedy.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'm not sure what to make of GMW. I mean, compared to the now airing Disney shows, it's definitely one of the best. However, growing up watching BMW and falling in love with every single episode and every single line, I believe that GMW is just not good enough. The series, I believe, is a bit cheesy and the characters try too hard. I don't think there ever will be another Disney series as good as Boy Meets World. However, it is quite refreshing to see a Disney show, nowadays, that doesn't involve dancers and singers. Expand

This equivalent show "Girl Meets World" is not what I was expecting. I waited months to see the hilarious dialect performed on "Girl Meets World" as well as "Boy Meets World", sadly this was not in place. So far in the premiere, it is very cheesy, as how I imagined Disney would make it. The plot is boring, the acting made me cry, and there isn't enough Topanga. Just like Disney would portray it as cheesy,sappy, and stupid. Some Easter Eggs in the show referring to "Boy Meets World" is "Ok". But since the show is made by Disney, I believe it will have no potential, lack of story, and no secret sexual jokes as I enjoyed in the series "Boy Meets World". The good thing about the show, is that Mr. Feeny appeared. I do have to give credit to the show, because its the first episode and its just letting us know who the rest of the characters are. In conclusion, -Bad Things, Not enough Topanga, No sexual jokes(Or funny jokes), horrible acting, horrible script, made by Disney. -Good Things,Mr.Feeny returning. In honesty this made me tear up a bit, knowing that the sequal of my favorite TV series, "Boy Meets Word", is coming to an end. Expand
