I read this piece about GMW's cancellation featuring a blurb from Rider Strong/Shawn Hunter. This part made me think of So Weird:
"Strong tells guest host Samm Levine that Disney Channel didn’t allow series creator Michael Jacobs to get quite as dramatic as he would’ve liked to on GMW....
We’ve had some very dramatic episodes [of Girl Meets World]. I don’t think as dramatic as Boy Meets World, mostly because we’re on Disney Channel and they won’t allow us to. I think had Michael Jacobs (creator) had his way, Girl Meets World would have swung just as extreme." - TV Line
The way I understand it, Disney doesn't want to get dramatic, even if the creators/writers are willing. This might explain why some shows from the past (*cough*) are ignored.
If anything, it definitely shows where the company stands now and what they're probably going to stick with.
Yeah, I guess that's one of the problem with Disney shows. Since the channel is designed for children, they tend to cancel the shows before or right when the children mature.
As for me, I watched this show for a good while (through the wedding) but by the "Lodge" episodes, I was a little annoyed by or uncomfortable with certain aspects of the show and decided to stop watching.
