Watch Boy Meets World

The popular sitcom Boy Meets World follows teenage Cory Matthews on his many adventures as he grows from boyhood to manhood. The first two seasons are made up largely of lighthearted adventures revolving around Cory, his family and his best friend Shawn. The two are continually getting into scrapes and annoying Cory's next door neighbor, Mr. Feeny, who just happens to be Cory and Shawn's teacher at school.

An ongoing theme through much of the early part series is the class differentiation between Cory and Shawn. Cory lives in a nice neighborhood with loving parents. Shawn, on the other hand, lives in a trailer park with his parents until his mother leaves them--taking the family trailer with her. Shawn stays with the Matthews for a short time while his father goes in search of his mother. He then moves in with his teacher Mr. Turner until his father returns during the third season.

Cory and Shawn's childhood friend Topanga joins the duo toward the end of the second season as a potential love interest for Cory. They have an on again off again relationship for several seasons. As the show progresses into the third and fourth and fifth seasons the kids began to deal with more serious issues such as abandonment, divorce, death, God, cults, sex, racism, alcoholism and child abuse.

The witty dialog and character development truly add a quality and depth to this show that is rarely captured in more current television shows. It is fun to watch the interactions between these characters and watch them as they grow and change.
