25 Reasons Why More "Boy Meets World" is a Wonderful Thing

By Courtney Enlow | Seriously Random Lists | November 7, 2012 | Comments ()


So, as you may have heard/jumped up and down while doing a happy dance, there may be more "Boy Meets World" in our future.

Ain't nothin' wrong with that.

Sure, this new spinoff series could be a minor blip that we forget about completely by the time it airs. OR. It could be a worthy successor to the finest standard coming-of-age sitcom/surrealist descent into televised madness in the history of television.

And here's why.

The tips for dining out.

The underpants.

The angst...


All the angst...


I cannot emphasize this enough...




(Spoiler alert: his dad dies like five minutes after this scene.)

The bromance.


The helpful advice.


The call.

The Debbie.


The promised land.


The haircuts...

Both of them...

Make that three.


The...oh, hey, Adam Scott!


The absolute truth.


The weddings...


Both of them.


The stuff they got away with...


And the stuff they couldn't get through.

The interpretive dance.

The beat poetry.

The one-man show.

The beautiful dumbification Eric.




The Feeny.

    I hope they don't write their daughter to be a wannabe popstar or wizard or something. It seems like every recent Disney character absolutely has to be unique in some way. Either famous or supernatural. Why can't they create normal, ordinary characters anymore?

    Anyway, I'm excited. This has the potential to be great.

  • Haystacks

    I miss when they could actually talk about sex in a somewhat reasonable way on Disney/teen shows. Instead of ignoring it all together or making it seem like all teens have a regular weekend Orgy.

  • ZestyItalian2

    I love that Ben Savage had the comic delivery of an old borscht belt comedian.

    Twenty going on 75. With an apparent detour to New York.

    I am so disappointed with the lack of teaching us not to join cults. Even for hugs.

  • Frank Berrodin

    Those hard-hitting GIF sequences just made me laugh out loud at my desk

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I have always felt like the insanity of Boy Meets World facilitated the 21st century insanity of shows like Scrubs.

  • Let's be real: if Boy Meets World ever hits Netflix Instant, I'm calling in sick for a week.

  • annie

    I'm having all kinds of feelings right now.

  • googergieger

    What about the little sister that lived on the second floor for about five years? The shallow boy? Ben Savage punching Fred Savage?

  • BendinIntheWind

    The Savage vs. Savage episode may have been the best moment of my childhood.

  • googergieger

    The best moment of my childhood was winning a hundred dollar shopping spree at a Walmart and walking away with a shitload of junk food for my troubles. Other kids walked away with bikes, and video game systems, and things that lasted them years and years. Me? I bought shit that would make crack whores vomit. Ding Dongs, Chocolate Pies, literally every type of cookie, etc...

    As a momma's boy I did remember to get my mom her slippers, though.

  • Melissa

    I really hope they can get Eric back


    FYI, I have a whole bunch of fun clips from seasons 4 and 5 on my youtube channel, if you want to waste away an afternoon:)

  • mats19

    Every sick day home is a pleasure when I realize certain channels run Boy Meet's World marathons... this show was insane and beautiful all in one..

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    Whoah, Adam Scott is way WAY too pretty in that gif. I love the hedgehog, but that is surreal.

  • KatSings

    I have been DYING for this post! Now to go read it ::hurries off::
