Trivia

Cast held a 2013 ATX Television festival reunion 20 years after the show debut on ABC. Attending the Austin reunion was Ben Savage, Rider Strong, Matthew Lawrence, Betsy Randle, Lily Nicksay, Trina McGee, and Maitland Ward. See more »

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 »

It's a show about Growing Up (and the stupid and surreal things in between)
18 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Boy Meets World is one of those shows that you remember 20 years after it's cancellation. The great thing about this show was that it got funnier as it grew. The cast actually grew up nicely and matured (well Eric de-evolved into a brainless twit) but for the most part, THe Matthews and all of their friends had a nice run. One of my favorite things about the show is Mr.Feeny, yes Feh, eh, eh, enny! The voice of KITT from Knightrider reveals himself to be a sarcastic and funny actor who can get a moral past any situation. On a negitive note, the show got way too many characters, Jack (Shawns brother) is an exception, but Angella was brought in to get a cheap hold of the tokken black girl. So I say a fond farewell to Cory Matthews and all of his dilemmas into the abyss that is TV syndication.

Life is tuff, get a helmet! - Eric Matthews
