Cory is your average guy. He has a best friend from the other side of the tracks, a teacher that constantly keeps him on his toes, and a friend named Topanga whom he has trouble understanding. With the support of his parents and his brother Eric, Cory learns to cope with the roller coaster called growing up.
Boy Meets World marks season 3 with a new credit sequence, a TV internship for 18-year-old Eric (Will Friedel)--who longs to work as a weatherman--and a relationship for 14-year-old Cory (Ben Savage, now with a deeper voice) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel). When his parents left at the end of the previous year, Shawn (Rider Strong) moved in with English teacher Jonathan Turner (Anthony Tyler Quinn), and that's where the action begins.
While Cory has Shawn, Topanga has Trini (Brittany Murphy), Frankie (Ethan Suplee) has Joey (Blake Soper), and Mr. Turner has Eli Williams (Alex Désert), who joins John Adams High as media arts teacher. Under his tutelage, Cory learns the price of journalistic freedom when his exposé costs Janitor Bud (Bob Larkin) his job, though Mr. Feeny (William Daniels) finds another way to use his talents (in the 1972 musical 1776, Daniels played John Adams). Cory and Shawn also come to see different sides to Feeny, their principal, and Frankie, a poetic thug.
Just as Cory is transitioning into adulthood, Boy Meets World's third season has a transitional feel as the tone turns serious more often, like in "Hometown Hero," in which Cory and Shawn break into the chemistry lab and start a fire, and "Brother-Brother," in which Cory has a hard time letting Eric go. It's still an entertaining show, but a little less funny, even if it allows Strong and Daniels to do some of their best work. Fortunately, there are still plenty of upbeat episodes. In "Train of Fools," for instance, Cory throws a New Year's Eve party in a subway car, and in "I Was a Teenage Spy," he travels back to 1957 in a nod to Happy Days. Unlike previous sets, this one eschews audio commentary. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

The gang are now on their next stage of high school life. There's a bit of confusion here at different points, because they seem to alternate between years 8 and 9. However this really isn't a major point of the show and unless people are going to get picky, it really doesn't matter.
The season starts out with Cory and Topanga FINALLY agreeing to be a 'couple'. Their relationship as some rocky moments, with Cory telling Topanga that he loves her early in the relationship, however things eventually get sorted. The relationship doesn't last though, as Cory and Topanga realise that they are spending too much time together and losing themselves. He eventually follows her to Disney World, Florida though in an attempt to win her back.
Meanwhile Shawn is adjusting to living with his new Guardian, teacher Jonathan Turner. As they try and find each other's boundaries, the audience learns a lot about each of these characters and both of them grow significantly throughout the season.
Cory's brother, Eric, also takes a more significant role this season, with several episodes focusing around the world that he lives in during his last year of High School.
And of course, Mr Feeny is always there to support and offer those words of wisdom.
