Editorial Reviews

Boy Meets World joined the ABC network's successful "TGIF" lineup in 1993, and instantly distinguished itself from the dewy-eyed hokum that passes for much family viewing with its relative sophistication, emotional complexity, and smart, stylish dialogue. In a way, Boy Meets World, starring Ben Savage, picked up where ABC's The Wonder Years (1988-1993), featuring older brother Fred Savage, left off. Both shows looked at the world from the point of view of largely unformed and untested boys as they faced dilemmas concerning love, loyalty, and ethics within their families, among friends, and at school. But where The Wonder Years was an arch and poignant series with nostalgic, grown-up appeal--and which had a young hero often at a loss for words--BMW looked more like a broader, conventional sitcom where chatter never ceased. The show was and is more easily taken for granted, but its unusual gracefulness and wit can't be denied after a couple of viewings.

Boy Meets World lasted seven seasons, and one of the real pleasures of following the series is that its story and character changes are largely organic, rather than forced by cast departures or other pressures. Thus the auspicious first meeting of Savage's 11-year-old Cory Matthews and his classmate Topanga (Danielle Fishel) in season 1 leads, quite sweetly and logically, to a deeper relationship in subsequent seasons. Cory's attachment to his formidable yet compassionate 6th-grade teacher, Mr. Feeny (William Daniels in a tailor-made performance), who also happens to be Cory's neighbor, grows and deepens as Feeny eventually becomes the principal at Cory's high school and a mentor beyond. Season 1 also introduces Cory's likeable father (William Russ), a grocery store manager, and mother (Betsy Randle), a homemaker and realtor, as well as appealing siblings Eric (Will Friedle) and Morgan (Lindsay Ridgeway) and best friend Shawn (Rider Strong). A slightly surreal tone (a little similar to Family Ties) keeps the jokes coming, but BMW is at its most touching when Cory's awareness of and empathy for the needs of others expands. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Go back to the beginning with Cory, Topanga, Shawn and all your favorite characters in Boy Meets World's hilarious first season. With the help of his family and his teacher, Mr. Feeny, Cory (Ben Savage) explores life, relationships and the strange, wild world of sixth grade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boy Meets World Meets DVD! August 18, 2004
I remember how TV Guide and other critics didn't think the show would last as long as it did, unnecessarily putting Ben Savage and his new show in brother Fred's shadow. But Ben and "Boy Meets World" would have the last laugh, running for seven consistently entertaining seasons while building a HUGE viewer fanbase. This complete first season set is somewhat of a special collector's item for casual and diehard BMW viewers, who not only can revisit the freshman season at their leisure but can also re-examine the individual episodes for continuity issues that would later plague the show. "Boy Meets World" featured a perfect blend of heart and comedy in EVERY single episode for its entire series run, and starting with this Season 1 set, can be owned on DVD!

Bonus Episode from Season 4: "Hair Today, Goon Tomorrow"
Audio Commentary: "Cory's Alternative Friends" (Disc 1) with Ben Savage, Rider Strong, Will Friedle, Danielle Fishel and creator/executive producer Michael Jacobs.
Audio Commentary: "Class Pre-Union" (Disc 2) with Ben Savage, Rider Strong, Will Friedle, Danielle Fishel and creator/executive producer Michael Jacobs.
Audio Commentary: "Boy Meets Girl" (Disc 3) with Ben Savage, Rider Strong, Will Friedle, Danielle Fishel, creator/executive producer Michael Jacobs and Matthew Lawrence (5th Season's "Jack Hunter").
Audio Commentary: Season 4 Bonus Episode "Hair Today, Goon Tomorrow" (Disc 3) with Ben Savage, Rider Strong, Will Friedle, Danielle Fishel, creator/executive producer Michael Jacobs and Matthew Lawrence (5th Season's "Jack Hunter").

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good! September 18, 2004
By Maria
I'm quite picky on ratings. I only give things I flat out love five stars. But this is definitely deserving.

Here is a list of all the episodes -- and a short description on them:

Disc One:

Pilot -- Introduces us to the characters. Cory feels neglected when his brother takes his new girlfriend to a baseball game instead of him.

On The Fence -- Cory paints Mr. Feeny's shudders to pay for a water gun. Problems arise.

Father Knows Less -- Alan, Cory's dad doesn't think he spends enough time with Cory so he wakes him up in the middle of the night to watch a no hitter, resulting in Cory failing a test the next day.

Cory's Alternative Friends -- Cory tries to straighten his hair and messes it up completely. This episode introduces Danielle Fishel as Topanga. *Available with Audio Commentary*

Killer Bees -- Cory talks Mr. Feeny into letting him enter a geography tournament when the prize is to b a bat boy at the first game in the World Series.

Boys II Mensa -- Cory memorizes the answers to an I.Q. test and learns the consequences of his actions.

Grandma Was A Rolling Stone -- Cory's grandma comes to visit. Eric has a date with Jessica, Mr. Feeny's niece.

Disc Two:

Teacher's Bet -- Mr. Feeny and Cory make a bet that Cory can teach Social Studies better than Mr. Feeny.

Class Pre-Union -- Cory's class has a pre-union and Cory comes as a baseball player. Guest Jim Abbot. *Available with Audio Commentary*

Santa's Little Helper -- When Cory learns that Shawn's dad lost his job, he tries to give Shawn a present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Show in a Great DVD Package October 7, 2004
I collect TV show DVD sets, and I'm very happy to say that this set, containg the first 22 episodes (the whole first season) of Boy Meets World, is no disappointment. The episodes are in great quality, there is a "play all" feature which I find to be very uncommon among DVD sets, and there are many bonus features, like an episode from season 4, audio commentary, and more. I was very impressed with these DVDs and hope future Boy Meets World sets come out just as impressive as this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Penny October 11, 2004
Having grown up with Boy Meets World on the TGIF lineup, I was thrilled to see that the first season was finally to be released on DVD. Needless to say, as soon as I spotted it in the stores I snatched it up and I have to say, it was worth every cent I spent on it!

Rewatching all those episodes that I loved so much was awesome! Seeing Minkus once again was definately a great thing, as well as seeing Jason Marsden.

I loved Cory's "___ Boy!" stage that he went through ("I am Scuba Boy!" "I am Action Boy!" etc...) and, of course, Topanga's hair.

The cast commentaries on certain episodes had me laughing til my sides hurt and it's great to see that the cast members really get along. (a particular favourite of mine was Will Friedle's jabs at Matthew Lawrence throughout the commentaries. Making fun of Super Human Samurai Cyber Squad...classic!)

The bonus episode from season 4 is great. It's actually one of my favourites. It's the episode with Eric as the Good Looking Guy, so how can you not like it?

If you enjoyed this series when it was on TV then it is definately worth buying on DVD! Trust me, it's well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars My All-Time Favorite Show July 20, 2004
By J. Tam
I was 12 years old when Boy Meets World premiered, and I grew up watching the show. In fact, it was the only show I watched throughout my teenage years, because it reflected the same things I was going through: learning life lessons in the classroom, pondering the discovery of someone to spend the rest of my life with, having an identity crisis, etc. There was a lot of depth and humor in the show, and the kids were just like me, doing their best to become good people. I think the writers deserve a lot of credit!
