With the recent buzz around ‘Girl Meets World,’ a planned sequel to TGIF staple ‘Boy Meets World’ from back in the day, I began ruminating about what a simple, yet elegant, idea the series is. It’s a revival of a known property (which makes the money-men happy) but with a new twist that could appeal to new audiences, and theoretically be incredible. Knowing that Cory & Topanga are still together is somehow comforting, and makes me wonder about the notable offspring of other couples of my childhood. In my version of history, Daniel LaRusso went back to Japan and finally made it work with Kumiko, and their children Salvador and Yuki were beloved by honorary Grampa Miyagi until his death in 2005. Sabrina never married Harvey, but he’s very happy with Libby now, and their children Archie and Veronica are nearly middle-school age. Even Admiral Riker and his first officer Deanna are happy raising their little ones in San Francisco, with each child randomly adopting a strange accent in the Betazoid tradition, most amusingly little Jean-Luc, who speaks in a patois that viewers in our universe would find remarkably similar to Jar-Jar Binks. (These are the kind of thoughts, by the way, that kept me out of the really good schools.)
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wonders if the Gargoyles actually reproduce, or if they need concrete and some sort of molds, asking: Whose children (canonical or not) would make for the most interesting sequel series?
