^ It is tough to picture that. I think one of the main reasons that Girl Meets World probably drew back the Boy Meets World viewers is because we all assumed that Riley would be very similar to Cory.

Yeah, I kinda think that someone like Topanga would be too together to be the lead in a coming of age story

^ Exactly! We needed someone who thought she was ready to take on the world, but who really had a lot to learn, like Cory in Boy Meets World. Riley was the perfect character to watch grow and learn for the show's three seasons. I wish we could have watched more of her journey just so we could have seen how much of Cory's journey she mirrored as she got older.

^ Yeah. I know. There were so many moments that we could have watched Riley experience. It would have fun to see how similar or different Cory and Riley's experiences with the same situations would have been.

Yeah, & it would have been interesting to see how much Cory wanted to get involved, or let her learn lessons the same way he did...

^ That would have been fun to watch. I think Cory would pick and choose which lessons he would guide Riley through and which lessons he would let her learn on her own. =)

Yeah, I think he knows that sometimes it's best for him to step back

^ Can you think of a moment where you think Cory would get involved and a moment where he would let Riley figure things out on her own?

I think that in most of the episodes, he already knew what lesson Riley was going to learn from the situation & sat back & watched it play out, because he knew that she was going to be ok

^ That does sound right. It always looked like Cory gave Riley little nuggets of the lessons he wanted her to learn, and he trusted that she would find her way to the lessons at some point. =)

Yeah, & I think he'd be ready to step in if he felt like she really needed it - I think he was always keeping a close eye just in case

^ Oh, yes. He's a father, so of course he has to make sure his children are on the right path. He would know when he has to step in and when he has to let things happen on their own.

Yep, & I think he got that judgment right most of the time

^ I think so too. He knew her well enough to know if she would make the right decision or she would find her way to the lessons he wanted her to learn.

Follow-up question...you posted that you think he got that judgment right most of the time. When did you think he didn't get it right?
