Episode Review: Girl Meets First Date (#1.20)

Hey everyone, I'm Sean. You may know me as ConfidenceKBM, author of the recently completed Boy Meets World Reviewed. I'll be teaming up with Christian here to talk through the increasingly divisive Girl Meets World, starting with episode 20. We're in figure-it-out-as-we-go mode for these team-reviews, so for this first attempt I'll just give my general thoughts then pass it over to Christian for his own thoughts and commentary on my thoughts, and continue that with a couple more passes back and forth.

Christian uses the default font in purple, so I'll be using this different font in gold. Let's get this world meeting started. No snacks will be provided at this time.

I don't know if this dead horse is still worth beating, but nothing that Cory does in the first two minutes resembles anything a real teacher would do. And it's fine, it's fun, but one of the core themes of Boy Meets World was how important yet undervalued teachers are. But now in GMW the teacher is simply a court jester for the students to throw rotten vegetables at. So that's upsetting, but like I said, dead horse. The highlight of the opening is Farkle's Belgium reaction, which actually made me laugh out loud for once. Unsurprisingly, it's an action resembling his father more than himself.

Hey everyone! Long time no speak! Enjoy the break?

I'm announcing a new format change! Starting with tonight's episode, "Girl Meets First Date" myself and ConfidenceKBM, author of the dearly departed Boy Meets World Reviewed will be teaming up for these episode reviews, making them more a conversation about the episode than a straight review. Twice the reviewers, twice the fun!

Expect a back and forth analytical conversational exchange to be posted here throughout the weekend.

I will be continuing my process of awarding an MVP Award to a performer and rating it on a grading scale. KBM did not do either of these things for his blog, electing to award a star rating based on a few different criteria, so he may continue with that or utilize my system or WHO KNOWS?\

Seeya guys in a bit!
