  • What started out as a good episode became extremely ridiculous.

    This episode started out strong, with it's dramatic opening. But by the time the plot itself developed, it seemed overplayed, and it lost it's sense of being emotional, since the same scene happened twice just with 2 different people. Cory & Eric fight over Allen's attention. Allen realizes he's splitting up his attention, he gives his mind to Cory, and his playful side to Eric. Both sons want both sides. When Cory shoves Allen, Allen & Eric take Cory skydiving. While skydiving, Eric realizes he wants Allen's attention as well. So when they're playing basketball, Eric shoves Allen. See how ridiculous that is? The emotional scene in the beginning completely lost it's essence. Meanwhile Jack & Shawn have to share a room, and they realize they both are very different people. Shawn's ways to get to sleep only keep Jack up, it ends in a fight. Then sooner or later, that plot got ridiculous as well, when all they were doing was fighting throughout the episode, and then making a joke out of it. Boy Meets World usually does a good job at drawing a fine line between comedy and drama, but in this episode, it was just all over the place. Unsettling episode.
