Goofs

As with any long running series, certain details change as the show progresses and writers change. Both Shawn and Topanga, for instance, have sisters in the first season but are later depicted as only children. In the show's earlier years, Topanga's mom was named Chloe, but in later episodes she's known as Rhiannon. Inconsistencies like these are generally forgiven in series. See more »

Quotes

Cory: In some countries me calling your hair greasy would be considered a compliment. For instance... Greece.
Gloria: That's funny.
Harley: Yeah, he's a pretty funny guy.
Cory: So, I get to live, huh?
Harley: There's that humor again. I will miss that.

TGIF At It's Best
26 August 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

"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.
