Promo: This season on ‘Girl Meets World’
I actually feel a little better about the show after watching this.
After a seemingly endless year-and-a-half-long wait, Girl Meets World finally premieres Friday night (and you can watch it online now) — but let’s get this out of the way early: It is not the show you remember and it is likely not the show you’ve been waiting for. That show, our beloved Boy Meets World, is gone and has been for 14 years. In its place is a winking, fun house mirror version of a sequel, which may leave many longtime fans heartbroken. But don’t be afraid: We children of the ’90s will band together in our grief and mourning. And if we work through these five steps of grief together, we may just come to appreciate Girl Meets World for what it is and love Boy Meets World even more.
I wrote this! It pretty much sums up how I feel about ‘Girl Meets World.’ Fear not, despite the doom and gloom format of the article, the show isn’t a total failure. The article even has a bit of an uplifting twist at the end. I’d love to hear what people think.
TV Line gave 2 opinions on the show (one from a ‘Boy Meets World’ diehard and another from a critic with no familiarity but knowledge of kids’ programming), and neither are that scathing. They don’t address whether the show is funny, which is my main concern, but they don’t outright dismiss it as cheesy nonsense either (my other main concern).

No matter how hard you may try to forget, this is still a 2014 Disney Channel show.

First Promo: ‘Girl Meets World’
Now embeddable. We need to start bracing for this being very not good.
Not sure how this was chosen to be the first released clip, but just the characters moving around and talking was a bit of a nostalgia trip.
(Also, it’s not embeddable.)
