More than a decade after "Boy Meets World," Cory and Topanga Matthews are married and have two children. Their daughter, Riley, faces life lessons through her family, friends, and school--where her father is her history teacher--as her parents did when they were younger.
Adolescent Cory Matthews and his best friend Shawn, and Cory's girlfriend Topanga attempt to survive the trials of high school, along with the help of the George Feeny, the high-school principal and Cory's next-door neighbor. Written by

Danielle Fishel was originally cast as a guest star on the pilot. The actress who was cast as Topanga wasn't working out, so Danielle and another girl were asked to read on the spot. Danielle won the role. 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 »
Do you think this is funny?
No, I think it's the opposite of funny. I think it's... wood.

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.
