In the beginning of the show, Shawn mentions he has a sister who helped with the straightening of Cory's hair in one of the episodes. However, later on in the series, Shawn doesn't have a sister. In interviews, Rider Strong explained that those lines were supposed to be attributed to one of the many kids they attempted to make Cory's second best friend but was fired in the filming process. In the haste to get the episode filmed, the writers just gave those lines to Shawn. See more »
The main characters were in the sixth grade and eleven years old when the series began in Fall of 1993. They should have graduated from high school, therefore, in the year 2000. Instead, two years were missing from their high school careers and the writers had them graduate in 1998. When season 2 began, they were in 7th grade and this was referenced by head bully and repeating senior Harley Kiner. He was known for especially picking on seventh graders and kept reminding Cory of that fact throughout the second season. Somewhere between season's 3 and 4 their year in school became hazy between them being in 8th grade and freshmen in high school. See more »
[Re: Cory and Topanga's break-up]
How come I feel so bad?
Mr. George Feeny:
Well, because you're a troubled young man, I recognize that from the movie, "A Troubled Young Man"

"Boy Meets World" and "Sabrina The Teenage Witch" were the best TGIF shows. My friends and I used to get together every Friday night to watch these shows and they always gave us good laughs.
"Boy Meets World" told the story of Cory Matthews, his friends, and family. Through the series they got older and more mature. My favorite episode was "The Honeymoon is Over". The best scene was when Cory and Topanga bump into the little kid in the hallway. That was hilarious. I also liked the episodes "Sixteen Candles and Four-Hundred-Pound Men" and "Stormy Weather".
I really enjoyed this show because it was original and realistic. I heard TGIF came back with new shows, but it's not the same. I give this show 10/10 stars.
