One of the best episodes of any 90s show,
21 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of the best ever for a comedy. Season 5 of BMW started becoming very dramedy-like during the Cory/Topanga break up arc which turned out to be excellent. This episode was the best during that time.

The comedy was top notch. I loved the horror elements and how they messed with them. The ending was great and meaningful.

Boy Meets World is sometimes pegged as a pure kids show, but it is way beyond that. It matured throughout the show with it's masterful handling of the characters and adding in the drama. "And Then There Was Shawn" showed how mature this show is and that anyone of any age can enjoy it.
