Trivia

While some characters in the series are portrayed by different actors (such as Topanga's parents), some actors portray multiple characters. Herschel Sparber first appears in episode 2.10 (Sister Theresa) as a delivery guy who delivers gifts from TK to Cory. He then appears later that season as Shawn's Uncle Mike in "By Hook or by Crook," and then later makes his last appearance as Uncle Mike in Season 3 ("The Pink Flamingo Kid"). Julius Carry first makes his appearance in season 5 as a college professor of a class that Shawn is taking while still in high school but then reappears as Angela's father first in season 6 and then later in season 7. Thirdly, Phil Leeds makes three appearances as a minor character, first in the season 4 premiere as the guy at the truck stop who says, "I was only three hours from home"; secondly as the game show announcer on an episode later in season 4 (the only episode where his character's name is not Phil); and, lastly, he appears in season 5 as the manager of the mail room in which Cory and Shawn work. Also, Willie Garson appears first twice as Leonard Spinelli, Alan's assistance manager, then as Mervyn, who applies for a job at the store Alan opens, and lastly, as the minister who marries Cory and Topanga. He later appears as Topanga's boss in Girl Meets World. See more »

a very fun show
4 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Boy Meets World is a show that reminds me a lot of NBC's 'Friends,' except for teens and younger children. Ben Savage leads the show as the character Cory Matthews. BMW shows the hardships of life from a young kid, a teen, a young adult, and finally, an adult. The show does a great job of adding humor in a lot of aspects of the show. As Cory goes on, you can see that he is maturing with time. I grew up with Cory, and he shows how hard it can be. The show does a good job of developing Cory, giving him the girl of his dreams, a loyal friend, a caring family, and a teacher/principal who has always been at his side. The show has everything that makes a good sitcom, comedy, drama, romance, and the occasional deep trouble that every teen gets in. BMW ended 5 years ago, but it is still one of the most watched shows on TV on the Disney Channel and ABC Family.

It's just so much fun to watch this show, and watch the characters develop so well. It's just a shame that none of the actors from the show besides Rider Strong and Will Friedle have gone on to bigger and better things. Look for Ben Savage to star in a movie next year, that's looking very good.

9.5/10 --spy
