10 Things We Miss About Boy Meets World
In terms of “kids” shows Boy Meets World had one heck of an impressive run, lasting for seven seasons from 1993-2000; however, it isn’t that surprising because the show was awesome. Luckily, its popularity was so great that Disney rebooted the story bringing back a lot of fan favorites as Cory and Topanga raise their own children and we follow the adventures of their 13-year old daughter Riley Matthews in Girl Meets World. While it is nice to see the show was so well-loved it garnered a second generation, Boy Meets World fans know it will not get better than the original show and since it has been over 20 years since it first aired and more than 15 since its last episode, reminisce with 10 Things We Miss About Boy Meets World.
10. The Life Lessons
Boy Meets World was one of the innocent family-friendly sitcoms that still did not lack for entertainment. Even though there wasn’t the same level of dramatics seen on shows today, it was still a great show and even though it was very funny, it worked very hard to teach a lesson. Whether it be learning from Mr. Feeny, their parents or each other, we usually related to a situation Cory, Shawn, Eric, or Topanga found themselves in or had something to learn at the very least. Things got serious when it came to Shawn’s family life, his dad dying and him joining a cult, yet Boy Meets World taught us family means a lot more than just blood relations.
9. The College Years
Even as the character’s grew up and went to college the show continued to be great, which sometimes is not the case as popular shows draw away from what fans are used to. Of course, it didn’t change that much as all of our favorites went to the same school including Mr. Feeny who came along to teach, plus we were introduced to some excellent new cast members around the same time including Matthew Lawrence as Jack Hunter, Trina McGee as Angela Moore and Maitland Ward as Rachel McGuire. Of course, as they got older the “innocence” sort of wore off as more adult storylines were brought in, but still it was much more toned down than most shows.
