Episode Title: The Forgotten 1×12
Recap and Review
*Warning Contains Spoilers*
I’ve like the whole season of Girl Meets World. I’ve been impressed with the lessons and the way the show has been putting down roots. Episode 1×12 “The Forgotten,” was the best one the show has had this season and it may have been the best episode of any show I’ve seen all week. Not only did it move me to tears, it lead to a long conversation with my daughter and her thanking me the way Riley did with Topanga. It had an amazing lesson that worked in real life.
Backing up for a second, a very unappreciative Riley was taking her mom for granted and not listening. It moved into her and Maya not being appreciative for the things that were done for them at school. The plot was easy to predict. It was clear the group would have to work at the jobs they weren’t appreciating and would learn the lesson and be changed. The characters didn’t “get it” at first, but once they did, they seemed to value what they learned.
Outside of the serious lesson, there were some hilarious moments, such as Riley thinking The Great Depression and The Grand Canyon were the same thing. Then there was the vomit. Since we never saw it, it was funny. The best and funniest part of the episode was when Janitor Harley, Keiner, called Cory “Baboon.” As a fan of” Boy Meets World,” it was a glorious moment for me. I hope we have many more encounters with Cory’s childhood bully.
I was glad this episode aired. I’m sure the writers will continue giving the audience amazing episodes that will teach the children of today lessons they aren’t learning elsewhere. I’m glad Michael Jacobs and April Kelly came back to work in the “World” genre because I think it’s very important for children to have an age appropriate, wholesome show to watch If you haven’t seen the episode go to Disney, YouTube, On Demand etc., to watch it.
I’m watching. Are you?
