Girl Meets World: Six Ideas for a Better Show

I am an unabashed Boy Meets World fan. By “unabashed,” I mean that if you just so happen to dislike the show and if you just so happen to mock me about it, I’m going to spend the entirety (eternity?) of my afterlife haunting your family bloodline as revenge. Trust me, you don’t want a spectral version of me forcing your great-grandchildren to wet the futuristic space bed. I would say the depth of my knowledge regarding Boy Meets World rivals what P. Bateman knows about Genesis.

That said, the fact I haven’t been consulted about the Girl Meets World spin-off is not only a travesty but also a crime against humanity (or at least the portion of humanity that owns televisions and watches Disney shows). We all know that remakes and re-boots are destined to disappoint the hardcore fans of the original material. It’s inevitable. However, that doesn’t mean an effort shouldn’t be made to avoid mediocrity. While I can’t say my ideas guarantee an Emmy-winning program, I will say that the producers better ready themselves for some serious hate mail (or a ghostly haunting) if none of these suggestions make it into the show…

1) Stuart Minkus as a main character. He deserves it. That kid was absolutely shafted on the first go-around. Bringing him back when Cory graduated high school to let them know he was just “on the other side of the school” was a disservice and a disgrace to his nerdy excellence. Make him one of the teachers in GMW, or a creepy next-door neighbor who has a Very Special Episode about him (like that episode of Smart Guy when T.J and his friend buy pirated computer games from a pedophile).

Presentation College: Summerhill Road/Glasthule Road

  • Presentation College is a secondary school located on Glasthule Road (Summerhill Rd. turns into Glasthule Rd). View map for exact location (across from St. Joseph’s Catholic Church). 
  • The college was founded in 1902 and the curriculum was taught by Presentation Brothers (their website here).
  •  the school’s website: link 1, link 2
  • Americanism: ‘College’ is high school in the States. 'University’ is college in the UK and Ireland. 'National school’ is primary school or elementary school. Doyler and Jim went to the same national school.
  • In 2006, the school was shut down and now serves mainly as a residence for the Presentation Brothers.

Relevant to the book:

  • The novel implied that the Macks were at the cusp of middle class and Jim Mack was on scholarship at Presentation College (Ch. 3).
  • Doyler sat for the same scholarship exam and was awarded one, but he disappeared to Clare (pg. 76). 
  • Some close readings: Presentation Brothers’ had three vows which were poverty, chastity, and obedience.  Brother Polycarp saw himself in Jim and offered him an opportunity for vocation (Ch. 3; Ch 6., pg. 127).  When Aunt Sawyer informed Mr. Mack of Jim’s offer Mr. Mack exasperated,

And what about the shop? […] What about me slaving day in day out for to pay your way? Is that the price of a college education? (pg. 124)

  • Mr. Mack wanted Jim to inherit the shop; to go into vocation and become a brother, Jim would denounce monetary aspirations.
  • Jim’s motivation for vocation was to reconnect spiritually (hence the Mary Nights) with his mother, who died on their way back from Cape Town, South Africa (Ch. 3, pg. 64).

These WWI propaganda posters were created by the Parliamentary Recruiting Committee, which was based in London. Sources: Posters, Recruitment 

  • In August 1914, Lord Kitchener (the Secretary of State for War) wanted to expand from the existing 14 Territorial Army divisions and the 30,000 men in the Army Reserve to the comparable number of 70 divisions, a scale similar to the French and German armies.
  • The Parliamentary Recruiting Committee consisted of 30 members that worked under the regulations of the War Office to increase enlistment in the volunteer army across Great Britain.
  •  By January 1916 with the declining number of recruitment and France’s need for additional military aid, the Military Service Bill was enacted in order to mandate enlistment for men aged 18-41.  Important to note that conscription was not introduced in Ireland because of the rising support for Sinn Fein and the country’s independence. 

Relevant to the book:

  • Father O'Toiler’s quote 
  • PRC posters plastered around Glasthule and the sea wall (Ch. 3, Ch. 4)
  • Gordie Mack joined the British Army on the basis of honour, paternal pride and Mr. Mack’s presumption that war transformed boys into men.

He’s in the army now, Jim. And the British Army is the finest-trained and best-rigged army the world over. Look at me sure. Nobody knows what happened my mother and father, may the earth lie gently on them. But the army took me in, fed me, clothed me, made the man I am today. It’s a great body of men he’s joining. (Ch. 2, pg. 55)

  • Mr. Mack also believed that sacrificing one son to the army was enough (pg. 54). For this reason, IMO, Mr. Mack is one of most heartbreaking characters in the book with all things considered at the end.

I was just the costume assistant. invisible to most. i was there to merely assist. but life can turn on a dime. and it did. instantly we can forget how the shadows ever felt. as if they were never our homes.

i saw him sitting alone in the last row in the last seat of mr. mack sennett’s studio. he looked terribly sad. 

i shouldn’t say it was love at first sight but if i didn’t say it was love at first sight - well, then i would be a liar. and i was raised to never lie. a fib would cost a day of meals. and i was very unpleasant hungry. 

i was afraid to approach him. even in his sadness he appeared powerful. luckily hair and makeup were doing tests on me this morning so i looked like maybe i was one of them. the ones on the big screen. 

i only had a short amount of time to properly introduce myself. as i made my way to the back of the studio I could feel the chrysalis of butterflies hatch deep in the back of my stomach. 

“evelyn would you please remove the giant paper mache head of mr. clark gable from the last row of seats in the studio”

paper mache head? i was completely disoriented by that request. how could i? well he certainly resembled mr. gable but he wasn't just a fabricated prop!  was this another one of virginia’s pranks! 

“evelyn now! we need to clear for the next scene”

as i approached the last row i could see him smile. virginia and her pranks i thought! 

“evelyn! fine i’ll do it myself”

virginia rushed to the back of the studio and grabbed him. he looked straight at me and winked! she mumbled something in his ear but i couldn’t hear her words as it was interrupted by the startling sound of a gunshot.  

I had to find him again. I would not let virginia control me anymore. he was mine. © 2014

There's so many non characters I couldn't even remember any of the injured's names other than Mr. Mac. Also thought James could get injured nothing that last forever make a a shot to the shoulder whilst protecting Abbigale. For a better version a Gurg, James in canon sucks. I liked Davis he seemed genuinely sweet but wasn't developed well. (I keep calling him David for some reason when typing)

I’m not sure there were any names given other than Mr. Mack. 

At least James getting injured would add some weight to the situation lmao. He was literally never in any danger during that shooting, never did a thing to actually help any of his terrified classmates, never came into contact with Seth, nothing. And yet people continuously hailed him as brave just because he ran through the building barefoot.

Davis was sweet but annoying as hell. He was basically a victim of horrible writing on Greg’s part. He would’ve been an okay character if not for such instances as “poopy poo poop” and “Hi ho silver lady mammy poppy sickle.”
