  • Strike!

    Cory and Shawn lead a student strike. Eric dumps Desiree because she is making him choose between her or Jason. Jason gets with Desiree. Mr. Turner promises that there will be no test, but the next day he gives one because of Mr. Feeny. Cory and Shawn say it's unfair.

    This was a good episode. The absence of Morgan and Topanga didn't help it though. I did think that Cory and Shawn were kind of right because you should not break promises and that was unfair. Desiree is a bit annoying to me. I'm glad Eric dumped her. This episode gets a 9.moreless
  • A well-written episode to show off a typical Cory and Shawn of season 2.

    Mr. Turner promises the class there will be no test on a book as long as they read and have good discussion. In the end, to please Mr. Feeny, he gives the test and lead by Cory and Shawn the class walks out on him.

    This episode exemplifies the meaning of season 2. Mainly, in season 2, the meaning of the episode is shown through what Turner teaches the students. The book, The Grapes of Wrath is shown through Cory and Shawn putting up a stand against Turner going against his word to get whatever he can out of his students. This episode was well-written and it's moral was well-displayed.moreless
