Oh, muse: sing to me the song of my childhood.
My inner 10-year old is rejoicing. Thanks to the wonders of the interwebs and Netflix (seriously, you should check these things out), TGIF is slowly being brought back to life. My family and I recently binge-watched the first season of Girl Meets World. I felt a certain sense of accomplishment by being able to show my kids the new adventures of Corey, Topanga, and of course Shawn.
Then, this past Friday, the much anticipated first season of Fuller House was mercifully unleashed on a waiting world (Confession: I’ve only watched the Pilot episode of Fuller House, just before our internet was switched off for our big move). Just the mention of Boy Meets World and Full House bring back many memories of our family huddled around at TV on Friday nights. Sure,they were cheesy. Sure they went for cheap laughs. And I will forever argue that those things are greatly under-appreciated in our world today. Those shows showed us strong families front and center in Prime Time. They certainly remind me of simpler times in my own life.
But, of course, we can’t live perpetually as pre-teens. And the reboots of these shows remind us that sometimes life doesn’t end happily-ever-after, but it can still turn out alright with the support of family and friends. Perhaps I’m just being nostalgic. However, this has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that an episode of Fuller House brought me to the point of sobbing as an adult. Nothing, I tell ya. Don’t judge me.
Anyway, I’m thoroughly enjoying these reboots of some of my favorite shows as a kid. Maybe some more are on the way. Your move, Urkel...
