The 2nd season of the series. During this year, Cory, Shawn and Topanga start 7th grade and find out that their old 6th grade teacher is the new principal of their high school. It also introduces the new character of Jonathan Turner who ends up being a mentor for Shawn.

Highlights of the season include Cory and Shawn leading a strike, Cory turning into a Werewolf, Cory taking on the school bully and Shawn moving into the Matthew's house after his parents abandon him.

This was a fantastic show! It covers a lot of real world issues in the lives of young teenagers with a mixture of light hearted humour and serious thought. The cast was great and showed a lot of maturity in their roles- I'm really looking forward to the release of the DVD!

Season 2 includes the following episodes- Back to school, Pairing off, Notorious, Me and Mr Joad, The Uninvited, Who's Afraid of the Cory Wolf?, Wake Up Little Cory, Band on the Run, Fear Strikes Out, Sister Theresa, The Beard, Turnaround, Cyrano, I Am Not A Crook, Breaking Up Is Really Really Hard to do, Danger Boy, On The Air, By Hook Or By Crook, Wrong Side Of The Tracks, Pop Quiz, The Thrilla' in Phila', Career Day, Home Sweet Home

Once again Boy Meets World is still one of the best shows ever with one of the best seasons. In my opinion Boy Meets World actually gets funnier with each season and the second season is defenietly funnier than the first. The only thing that is really different with this season is Topanga and how much she changed. The dissapointment of no more Minkus until The Graduation epsiode which is in season 5 i think. But anyway this box set once again has great commentary on some of the best epsiodes. The situations Cory and Shawn get into is also a whole lot funnier. Buy this set if you loved season 1.

Boy meets World, Season 2. Well, Cory and Shawn reach the 7th grade, Jr.high for us here in Newfoundland but in the USA, HIGH SCHOOL!!! Unlucky enough, He meets a bully Harley with his to sidekicks Joey and Frankie. Season 2 is filled lots of laughter and episodes such as when Cory is invited to the coolest party of 7th grade and Shawn doesen't get invited and when Cory gets there, It's a geek party! Also, When The school Newspaper is Published and When the front cover is supposed to Say: New principle is FEENY, Shawn went in the editor room and made the headline say: New Principle is WEENY. It is my favorite Season because there not mature and it's funnier although Eric gets dumber every season. If you guys don't know wich episodes are in S2, will here they are:

#1 Back 2 School

#2 Pairing off

#3 Notorious

#4 Me and Mr.Joad

#5 The Uninvited

#6 Who's afriad of Cory Wolf?

#7 Wake up, Little Cory

#8 Band on the run

#9 Fear strikes out

#10 Sister Theresa

#11 The Beard

#12 Turnaround

#13 Cyrano

#14 I am not a crook

#15 Breaking up is Really, Really hard to do

#16 Danger boy

#17 On the air

#18 By hook or by crook

#19 Worng side of the tracks

#20 Pop quiz

#21 The Thrilla' in Phila'

Okay, well I am only 15 years old and I was only 3 when the show came out so I started watching when I was about ten (re-runs) and I loved it (them)!! When the DVDs came out I bought them right away and watched all 6 discs in 2 days(I bought 1 and 2 at the same time)well I thought that the show was great and on the DVDs its even better because there is commentary with Will Fridele(Eric Matthews)(sorry if I spelled the last name wrong) Ben Savage (Cory Matthews), Danielle FisheL (Topanga Lawrence), Rider Strong (Shawn Hunter), Matt Lawrence (Jack Hunter. Later in the show), and Michael Jacos (producer) and thats just GREAT..anyway I hope that if you are reading these reviews, to see if you should buy the DVDs, well I think you know my oppinion..YES you should!

Countless fans of Boy Meets World have waited 3 years, for Season 4 to be released on DVD. I hope Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment and ABC finds an independent company that is willing to re-release the 3 Seasons of Boy Meets World on DVD, and release the 4 remaining Seasons in the near future, very soon. Please try harder in searching for the right independent.

I'm not going to go into detail of each episode etc. Just a quick review to say that if you are even the slightest fan of Boy Meets World, this DVD is worth checking out.

It is a 3 dvd set.

Even funnier than the first.

The main characters are always a laugh: I love their acting. They really do make it believeble!

This season finds Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) nervous and excited about starting his new school, John Adams High covers grades seventh through twelfth. (Do they even have schools like that, especially in a big city?) That means he is going to be attending the same school as his older brother Eric (Will Friedle), much to Eric’s dismay. Cory and best friend Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong) think they’ve left behind their 6th grade teacher Mr. Feeny (William Daniels). However, it turns out he is not only their new principal, but still teaching their History class. They lucked out with English as their teacher is the new teacher Jonathan Turner (Anthony Tyler Quinn).

Over the course of the season, Cory finds himself at a make out party with Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel who is now a series regular although she doesn’t appear in every episode), Cory’s dad Alan (William Russ) makes the mistake of buying Amy (Betsy Randle) a garbage compactor for their anniversary. Cory and Shawn try to start a fake band to meet chicks but wind up with a gig where they have to play. Cory and Mr. Feeny get tired of their reputations as safe. And the duo also get a show on the school’s radio station.

I didn’t enjoy this season quite as much as I did the first season. For one thing, I found the emphasis on boy/girl relationships a bit too much. Yes, I know that is something that is an issue for seventh graders, but the episodes were more uncomfortable instead of funny. And don’t get me started on Amy wanting all the details after Cory gets back from a make out party. Really? What parent would be okay with it, much less encouraging it? That seemed out of character. Plus there was a repeat plot about hormones hitting for the first time. They’d already done that (and done it much better) in season one.

Despite that complaint, there are still quite a few fun episodes here, like the ones I highlighted above. I was laughing along with the studio audience most of the time. The situations are great and the reactions are funny. This even includes the school bully, Harley Keiner (Danny McNulty) and his henchmen, who recur this season.

Toward the end of the season, they start to really explore Shawn’s character. This includes an episode about his family being from the wrong side of the tracks before, in the next to last episode, his mother takes off with the trailer they lived in. Since I’d watched the later few seasons of the show, this is something I knew they’d introduce at some point, and it was interesting to see it happening here. Also, they tone down Topanga, who is not nearly the hippy character she was in season one. It was interesting seeing Cory dating other girls over the course of the season since I’m so used to seeing the two of them together. And I must say many of my favorite moments in this season are the ones hinting at their relationship.

The acting continues to be good here. The cast is doing a great job of bring their characters to life each week. The only week point for me is Lily Nicksay who is a little too cute and over the top as the first version of Cory’s younger sister Morgan.

The season consisted of 23 episodes, and they are all included in this three disc set. The full frame picture and stereo sound are good. This isn’t something that will challenge your system, but it is how the show originally aired. There are a handful of commentaries by creator Michael Jacobs and either Ben and Danielle or Will and Shawn. I do wish they’d been together like the previous season, but the commentaries are still fun.

While not quite as funny as the first season, there is still much to enjoy about season 2 of Boy Meets World. I am looking forward to moving on to season three soon.

This season is one of my favorites of boy meets world, they are still so young but still able to relate to. I absolutely enjoyed watching all three discs and really can't wait until the rest of the seasons are available!
