Trivia

The real ages of all the characters who end up in college together (Cory, Eric, Topanga, Shawn, and Jack) differ from just a few years apart between each other except Angela, played by Trina McGee, who is actually the oldest of them all. However, in the show Eric and Jack are supposedly seniors in college while Cory, Topanga, Shawn, and Angela get into college at the same time, which states that they're all probably the same age. Trina McGee is in fact 10 years older than Rider Strong and seven years older than Will Friedle, who plays Eric, while Jack (Matthew Lawrence) and Cory (Ben Savage) are actually the same age in real life.

Goofs

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 »

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
