**She's just turned a teenager, and her personal life just got twisted!** **_SEASON 01:_** The latest coming-of-age comedy-drama from Disney channel. 'Girls Meets World' left a big void and so far no programme had replaced it. Could this be the one? Well, I would say, almost. 12 episodes per season for a children's show is too short, even for a short as 20 minutes long per episode. But it was a good initiation. Not just focused on comedy, but so many inspiring topics as well. And then its central character, Andi was not the one who led the entire show. The best part was, all the characters took their own path, at least for a brief moment. Like while Andi was struggling with her own personal life crisis, her friends handled well on their own in the school activities. So it kept going by building all the platform for the future story requirement. One of the surprise parts was Andi's one of the best friends, Cyrus. I might be wrong, but seems he has a crush on Jonah. Which might make it a gay theme. But I don't think the Disney would go there to explore for a new option. Besides, in this season, Andi was more focused on her own twisted life, particularly after 13 years of hidden secret came out. She's getting used to it. Not anywhere close to see a very comfortable position. But seeing her, her mother, grandparents, it reminds me 'Girlmore Girls'. If all goes well for next two seasons, it could become the next and the Disney's own 'Girlmore Girls'. I have enjoyed so far. All the episodes were good to decent, but none were bad. A couple of them were awesome, and inspiring. Yet everything remained a perfect cinematic tale rather than a depiction of the real life event. The three friends are awesome. Each one was unique, regarding their interest. But still Andi lacks being a central character, except her art and craft skills. Though the performances were impressive. Even the adult cast. Especially Lilan Bowden as Bex a very promising role to stand by Andi all the way. I hope there would be more focus on Buffy's athletic side, as well as Cyrus to find his own comfort zone being a boy. Most importantly, resolving some unknowns between Andi and her father need to be focused. Now all it needs is a catchy title track. I hope the second season would be full of funny and inspiring episodes. As well as expecting cast expansion, particularly if it goes to high school, the rivalry between team Andi and team amber, something like 'Mean Girls'. A good show for children, as well as for anyone. So watch it, definitely worth it. _8/10_
