More '90s TV Reboots Please -- The Possibilities Are Endless
Actor Ben Savage confirmed this week on Twitter what we had all been fearing/wishing. The Disney Channel is developing a Boy Meets World spin-off called Girl Meets World.
The new World would of course pick up where the original BMW left off and center on Cory and Topanga's daughter, thus the girl meeting world. Savage and Danielle Fishel are signed to reprise their roles.

One can only wonder out loud (on a blog) about the other classic '90s sitcoms that could use some revisiting. One can only wonder....
ABC's TGIF is ripe with possibilities, and in the worlds of freaky, fucked-up fan fiction sites, the shows never ended. How about his cherry of a storyline...
Michelle has a rare, aggressive brain tumor and the Tanners are in a fight to save her life. Rated T for language and subject matter that may not be suitable for younger audiences.
Fanfiction aside, Full House is obviously screaming for another trip to the salad bar. Would Uncle Joey still be slogging it out in the comedy clubs? How many kids would the girls all have? Is DJ a mommy-blogger?
Are Jesse and Rebecca still married? Probably not. Let's assume Jesse said "Have mercy!" to a younger gal at the bar he owned and threw it all away. Was Comet stuffed or cremated when he died? An aging Danny Tanner quits the TV business to open a marijuana dispensary.
Step by Step would now have a cast of 50, including all of Cody Lambert's bastard children.
Everyone from Family Matters seems to be in reasonable health. Jaleel White, who played nerd lord Urkel, turned 36 this week. Has Urkel created more Urkelbots, weaponized them for the government?
Is Carl Winslow dead, a victim of forced retirement and obesity? Eddie Winslow could now be a crooked Chicago cop himself, stealing drugs from dealers and selling them out on the street for profit.
And what came of Waldo Geraldo Faldo?
Coach Hayden Fox's illustrious football career is tarnished when it is discovered that Luther Horatio Van Dam was taking pictures of cheerleaders in the Minnesota State University Screaming Eagles locker rooms. Not only that, Dauber was banging Christine the whole time. Now, Coach Fox coaches his grandson's youth football league.
Blossom wasn't interesting enough in the first place, though I am sure Joey Russo's porn career is booming, and Anthony Russo was pretty dark and disturbing for a sitcom. A recovering alcoholic EMS medic?
Grace Under Fire could have only ended in meth abuse, prostitution, and murder.
We will probably never get the proper Married with Children revisit that we deserve now that Peg Bundy is a biker chick. Let's just assume that Al Bundy would have killed himself by now.
Murphy Brown? No thanks. She was more than likely ousted long ago off Fox News for being too old.
How would have 9/11 and TSA guidelines effected the Hackett brothers on Wings? Is Helen Chapel still hottish?
Doogie Howser has his own reality show on E! about nose jobs and ass lifts. You watch it religiously.
Empty Nest. All dead in an earthquake/wildfire.
Tim Taylor's YouTube channel is a hit, if only because he got millions of hits for accidentally driving a nail through his hand. And his foot. And Al's neck. Come to think of it, Tim Allen's Last Man Standing isn't too much different from Home Improvement. I wanna see Randy's one-man play about growing up with the Tool Man and the inherent shaming involved.
