Episode Summary

Cory and Shawn pretend to be in a band "to meet chicks". Everything is going great, until Mr. Feeny books them for the school dance.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • The Exits

    Cory and Shawn start a band to attract girls, even though they can’t play. They are then booked for the dance. Everyone is booing them. Topanga says that Cory looked cute on stage. Alan invites his old band to see if they still got it. Eric is good at the guitar. Mr. Feeny and Mr. Turner even laugh at Cory and Shawn.

    This was a good episode! I thought that the very end, with Eric, looked fake. It sounded cool though. Those guitars looked awesome! Seeing Alan’s old band was kind of funny! They were all old! This episode gets a 9.5 out of 10!moreless

    Move over Milli Vanilli, here comes The Exits! Cory & Shawn were hilarious, trying to get away with forming a rock band! Shawn had a flying V guitar while Cory had a Southpaw (lefty) Les Paul. Cory ended up doing "The Name Game"!

    Chuck Barris would gong them & Simon Cowell would cut them down!
