  • One of the best Halloween specials

    Boy Meets World takes a break from several weeks worth of angst over the romance between Cory and Topanga with this wild-and-wooly takeoff of the popular horror movie Scream. While Cory and his friends are serving weekend detention, a shrouded killer begins picking the students off one by one. Everyone panics but Shawn, who has seen enough scary movies to figure out what will happen next. That is at least until Mr. Feeny turns up murdered as well! It's giving nothing away to reveal that the whole experience is literally a nightmare. Also keep an eye out for Jennifer Love Hewitt, more or less playing herself. Overall, fantastic Halloween episode and definitely one of the best episodes this series has to offer.
