10 Reasons Why "Boy Meets World" Is My Favorite Sitcom

Well, at least from the 90's.


I specifically watching all of the reruns of "Boy Meets World" in middle school. Two would be played each morning and I never really seemed to get enough of them. I eventually set out to buy all of the seasons and binged watched every season in one summer. That was the first T.V. show that I had ever binge-watched. With Disney Plus, I plan on going back and rewatching them all just to reminisce about my and Cory's childhood. You should too!

The Theme Song


I'll admit, as the seasons progress the theme song gets better. However, they all check the marks in 90's sitcom theme songs. With an upbeat instrumental song and friends that are all smiling and enjoying their lives, how much better could it get?

Cory Matthews


Cory is the main character in the show. He is charismatic and so badly wants to become an adult. As he grows older, he realizes that life isn't as easy as it seems to be and meets some great people along the way.

Shawn Hunter


Shawn is Cory's best friend and always seems to be there for him no matter what. He too learns valuable lessons about life and really comes into his own as the show progresses.

Topanga Lawerence


She is really weird in the first season, but slowly becomes friends with both Cory and Shawn. She even becomes Cory's love interest.

Eric Matthews


Cory's older, comedic brother. Eric is probably my favorite character from the show because he reminds me of Joey from "Friends." He might not seem serious, but offers some serious life advice to Cory throughout the show.

Mr. Feeny


Mr. Feeny. What's not to love about him? He basically watched Cory, Shawn, and Topanga grow up. He even shows up in "Girl Meets World." He was blunt, but also still cared about them. He reminds me of a few teachers that I had in middle and high school.

The Life Lessons


Yeah, life is tough. That's the entire point of the show. Cory and his friends face challenges along the way and have to learn how to deal with them. Even if it is getting detention on a Friday when you really should be watching the Phillies.

Growing Up


"Boy Meets World" shows how an 11 year-old Cory grows into his own and discovers life for himself. He goes from thinking that Topanga is weird to marrying her. He came full circle and matured.

The Humor


The humor is impeccable. Life lessons can be tough to learn, but when humor is involved, who can't laugh.

The Spin-Off


Yes, Cory and Topanga marry each other and have children. Disney Channel decided to give the show a reboot. "Girl Meets World" is all about how Cory's daughter comes of age and includes characters from the original. It's cute, but not as good as "Boy Meets World."

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.


For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .
