  • senior year

    cory is excited to start senior year at john adams high, until he learns eric is moving back in (when he should be at college). cory tries to help him find a roommate and he finds out the guy he set up with is shawn's half brother, jack. chet comes and wants them to get to know each other.

    good episode, it was a nice introductory i thought to jack, who is a pretty funny character. it was also a good premiere to the show's 5th season. this episode, from me, gets an A+! Good premiere and pretty funny too
  • senior year begins.

    You can tell Boy Meets World has gotten a new style with the new set changes, a new character, and more emotional episodes. This season starts out quite emotional, this was a Shawn-centric episode, so you just know this is going to be an emotional episode. I realized Topanga doesn't take a big part in the Boy Meets World season premieres, and that's probably for the better to make way for family plots like this. Shawn runs in to Jack, is estranged half brother who is looking for a room mate, much to Cory's advantage, since he's trying to kick Eric out of his room. Meanwhile Jack feels as though he is enabling his son to be a failure when Eric comes home, when he's supposed to be at college, and Jack opens his arms for him, while his wife seems to have a problem with it. So does everyone else, Eric's plot mirrors Shawn's plot when his dad kicks him out, only to find out it was for the better, when by the end he reconciles with his brother, and that probably set Shawn up for success. Eric also moved in, so I think I like the 2 new set changes, definitely gives the show a good feel. This season had a good start, and this was good for a family-centric episode.
  • Interesting!

    Eric comes back home. Cory and Amy want him to get his own place. Cory, Shawn and Topanga are now seniors! Someone shows up and declares that he needs a roommate. Cory sets Eric up with him and Shawn sees him and it turns out that Shawn and the guy, Jack, are half-brothers. Chet makes Shawn live with Jack and Eric so they can get to know each other.

    This was a great episode! It's interesting to find out that Shawn has another half-brother. This episode was funny and enjoyable! Jack seems pretty cool. I give this episode a 9.5 out of 10!
