There’s Only One Cory and Topanga

The following is a guest blog written by Nan, one of our loyal podcast listeners. As with all our guest blogs, we don’t necessarily agree with all of her points, but we think it’s important to share a variety of perspectives. If you’d like to write a post for the site send us an email at gmwpodcast@gmail.com and we’ll look over what you have. Thanks Nan!

I take some issue with people assuming Riley and Lucas are the next Cory and Topanga. Yes, I believe they may have initially been cast for their roles with this model in mind. Yes, many situations over both series are parallel with both couples (first date for example). However, a casting template and similar scenes do not make them the same couple. The characters are different. Question: in what ways are Riley and Lucas really like Cory and Topanga? Riley met Lucas in 7th grade and knows very little about his life. She is learning who he is, and he is slowly getting character development. Cory and Topanga were established (in the end) as a couple who spent their entire lives together (more like Auggie and Ava, which has been referenced on and off screen), and they know everything about each other. Topanga was in Cory’s life before SHAWN was. The parallel to this on GMW (other than Auggie and Ava) is Riley and Maya, and, to a lesser extent, Farkle with both girls. How is Lucas like Topanga, other than being the “other” person in the relationship? With Riley and Lucas, Riley encompasses the best parts of both of her parents, and Lucas fills a role not present in BMW. To me they are a unique couple showing minimal resemblance to Cory and Topanga, other than situational similarities through plot.  (more…)

Kids Meet JB Gaynor (Remastered)

This is a remastered, re-edited version of our JB Gaynor interview. We had some tech issues last night that made JB’s audio much louder than our own. We did our best to clean this up for you guys. It’s a really fun interview and we didn’t want audio quality getting in the way of anyone’s enjoyment. Hope this is better and thanks for listening! PlayPodcast
