  • After Eric gives a surprisingly strong performance in a Shakespeare play, he lands a role on the show "Kid Gets Acquainted with the Universe." But Hollywood isn't all it's cracked up to be. Meanwhile, Topanga takes care of a sick Shawn and Jack.

    "Boy Meets World" was never a great show and at times, I find it almost painful to watch.
    That being said, this is one of my favorite episodes. I really appreciate a show that can make fun of itself and of Hollywood in general. In terms of the plot, it was great to see that Topanga and Shawn are able to have a friendship outside of Cory. Rider Strong was one of the stronger actors on the show, but in earlier episodes, he wasn't really utilized. Here, we see that he can have his own storylines independent of Cory which is refreshing. Overall, this is a great episode because it shows that the show didn't take itself too seriously.
