On Friday night’s “Girl Meets World,” we had a story that was for the most part sweet and inspiring. There has been a big push as of late to encourage young people, especially young girls, to look at careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The story of “Girl Meets STEM” is meant to push people in this direction, while also giving us some fun lines from Auggie and Zay in the process. (More Zay! Always more Zay!)
What we do still wonder is whether or not the Disney Channel show would consider moving away slightly from the established model of filming episodes when they want, and then airing them when they want. It juts doesn’t work all of the time to have stories so out of order. We presume that part of the reason why there are episodes between “Girl Meets the New Year” and the finale “Girl Meets Legacy” is to create the illusion of some sort of winter semester in school before graduation. We get that.
However, the fact that “Girl Meets the New York” filmed right before the finale makes this problematic, especially with what we saw with Farkle, Riley, Maya, and Lucas in that episode. How do these characters not mention any of this is we are looking at a linear story? Given what Farkle blurted out, that’s not something that can be easily forgiven. Even younger viewers would find themselves questioning the character’s behavior.
In the end, it’s believable that Riley and company may have gotten so involved in science projects that relationships and blowups may not always be on their mind; but, to not mention it at all is a little unbelievable.
