  • senior prom.

    It's senior prom night, and Cory and Topanga's relationship is stronger than ever after recently getting back together. And you know what happens on prom night... don't ya? That's right, everyone has sex on prom night. This show managed to make this episode family friendly by not being so direct on talking about sex, instead they made the conversation funny. And if the whole family is watching, only the older ones will get the subtle humor. And when asked by a six year old, "What did that mean?" His father or mother can say "Nothing." That's one of the things I like about this show, it's family friendly, and you can always learn a lesson from it, without it being totally cheesy like Full House. This episode did just that, with the perfect plot element, and the cliche idea of having sex on prom night, this turned out to be a fun filled episode.

    We also get some unexpected new from Cory's parents, when they reveal they they are expecting a baby, so this episode also manged to be eventful as well as hysterical. They decide to spice things up by getting a motel room, and pretending as if they don't know each other. Coincidentally the hotel they check in too is where the prom is being held. Eric and Jack are chaperoning, Jack tries to make everyone enjoy prom, and not let people worry about what will happen after, and Eric sees his dad, and thinks he is cheating on his mom. It's definitely quite a predicament when their room is right next to Cory and Topanga's, you switch up the cards, and throw Eric in to the mix, it turns out to be a hysterically complex situation, which I found myself laughing through.

    Bottom line, this episode proved that this sitcom is capable of dealing with sensual topics like this, and still remain family-friendly, not to mention, funny. A great episode overall, which was a stand out in this season, and it also showed how mature these characters really are. (Spoiler: Cory & Topanga don't end up having sex, don't worry it's for the better).
