Boy: Meet World (and all things TGIF related)

edited April 2011 in Social Entropy++
Because it's Mr. George Feeny's birthday today, I figured a BMW thread is appropriate:

Stolen from Wikipedia:
Boy Meets World is an American comedy-drama series that chronicles the events and everyday life lessons of Cory Matthews, played by Ben Savage, who grows up from a young boy to a married man. The show aired for seven seasons from 1993 to 2000 on ABC, part of the network's TGIF lineup

The show was a typical sitcom that ran in the 1990s. You have a cast of characters and you typically learn a lesson at the end, whether its about taking responsibility for blowing up a mailbox, defending your fiance from a creepy college professor (played by your real life older brother, no less), or taking charge of your life and starring in a show called "Good Looking Guy"

Here is the cast:

Cory Matthews:

Cory.jpg

The main character. Has a brother and sister and two loving, hip parents. The show pretty much revolved around Cory making his way through school alongside his best friend Shawn Hunter and girlfriend (and eventual wife) Topanga. Cory was never really popular, but had a good heart.

Shawn Hunter

The resident bad-boy of the show. Shawn would constantly get Cory into trouble, but is a loyal friend (one time he defended Cory from getting beaten up at a trailer park by Shawn's half brother). Shawn comes from a somewhat broken home, but the Matthews have always been there for him. Shawn starts dating a black chick at some point.

Topanga Lawrence

boymeetsworld-topanga.jpg

Ah Topanga. The cause of many boners. At the beginning of the show she used to be a weird kid, constantly trying to hang out with Shawn and Cory. Once high school hit, she straightened her hair and grew boobs. From then on, her and Cory had an on-again, off-again relationship. Eventually her and Cory got married and lived together. Topanga is smoking hot, and I think someone on the forum's friend hooked up with her.

Eric Matthews:

The dim-witted, but lovable big brother to Cory. At the beginning, Eric was the cooler big brother and had women on his mind at all times. Eventually high school ended for him and he started hanging out with Mr. Feeny, his mentor and friend. Eric spent a lot of time hanging out with Cory and his friends. He eventually became the voice of Batman

Mr. Feeny

mr_feeny.gif

F...F...F...Fee-heny. The mentor to the kids and always around for them. Mr. Feeny started as the kids' social studies teacher and next door neighbor, and eventually became their professor in college. Mr. Feeny is always there for the kids and offers wisdom (like when Shawn blew up the mailbox and when Cory and Shawn got caught drinking). Mr. Feeny tries to pretend to keep the line between educator and friend separate, but develops a close relationship with the gang over 8 years. He voiced K.I.T.T.

So please share your memories and thoughts on one of the best shows to ever grace the TGIF lineup

    You couldn't possibly be talking about me, the story of my friend and her was just unearthed on monday during a drunken "writing" podcast (it was mostly me making fart noises to scare my cat away for 99% of it).

    Or MAYBE you played TF2 and I told people about it during some drunken tf2 playing? Either way, my friend made out with her on her birthday at some club, but then her cousin cockblocked him and so she didn't come back to our place.

    Unless she's just a slut, sleeping around with anybody that knows somebody that posts on PA.

    Hahah, I don't think it was you Beast! This story was from awhile back and they were at a bar and the guy took her home. Someone made the comment that she'll probably bang anyone that doesn't call her Topanga.

    just one boner

    I've had multiple boners because of her. Also, many guys have had boners due to her.

    Either way you look at it

    She's the boner collector

    Well this will crush him, that he wasn't special, and that someone else actually hooked up with her as opposed to just hooking up with her lips.

    *sighs* Time to break the news to him and his fiance, wish me luck.

    That was Will Friedle aka Eric Matthews



    This show was a staple during my middle/high school years. Loved the acting and the stories were good for the most part although the Shawn/Angela relationship issues got on my nerves and I didn't like how things ended with them

    I remember watching the last few episodes of this, when they were oldish and in college (yet Cory and Topanga were already married). Some professor who looked a lot like Cory tried to hook up with Topanga, there was a new hot redhead friend, Topanga somehow told everyone she was pregnant and Cory's grandma tried to give them a DVD player (which at the time was huge, both in price and in size).

    Why are you so wrong, Butters?

    Also, how many shows can say they had Adam Scott in them?

    Looking back I can't believe Step by Step was a show. It was so fucking terrible. All of TGIF was bad but I can understand how gimmicks with the Olsen twins and Urkel kept them on for a bit. I don't get how Step by Step existed.

    It was a revamped Brady Bunch for our age.

    But instead of Alice we had Cody who lived in a van in the driveway

    I love Boy Meets World. It got me through the lonely years of highschool and college. Eric is definitely the greatest. No doubt. The redhead him and Jack hung out with all the time was good looking, I mad crushed on her.

    Also the apartment they lived in has been used in several different Disney TV shows, and it's strange every time I see it.

    He's such a filthy comic, how does he get these shows aimed at kids and families

    Also mad props to the coolest teacher who died in the show (not in real life) Jonathan Turner

    He got sick some time and couldn't work on Boy Meets World, so the the characters say that he was in the hospital and not coming out.

    Mr. Turner didn't die. He was just on the otherside of the school.
