  • not my cup of tea

    In this Halloween special, Jack's new girlfriend, Millie, turns out to be a witch, and she needs to sacrifice a Hunter to ensure her immortality. Eric finds this out and tries to tell Jack, but will he believe him? Cory surprises Topanga with a plane trip to Pittsburgh, but does not know Topanga has a fear of flying.

    It was alright. The plane plot was boring as was some of the main plot. The only laughs I got were some from Eric, like him looking at Jack at the start, his line about witches (Glenda and the other witch from Wizard of Oz)… but overall the episode lacked something, or so it felt like that to me. So because of all of this my final grade is in the "C" range
  • Halloween.

    Witchcraft manages to fit itself in in to this year's Halloween episode in Boy Meets World. We got some special guest appearances in this episode, but that isn't what made this episode fantastic. Although this episode wasn't dramatic or emotional, this episode managed to pull off a great hilarious episode. The fact that it was holiday themed and still a really great episode is astonishing. The side plot that had nothing to do with the main plot was just as good. We finally get a Cory and Topanga plot which we haven't really seen lately this season. It was a memorable plot as well. Topanga has a fear of flying, and Cory tries to help her get over that fear when they go to visit Topanga's parents in Pittsburgh. Cory isn't the one that ends up helping her, the pilot does, the pilot was a friend of Eric's which has Cory & Topanga worried since Eric tutored him. The only flaw that was in this episode is that the Cory and Topanga plot wasn't really resolved. They introduced that whole storyline with their pilot being dumb, and they didn't really build on that. Candace Cameron did an amazing job as a witch, and Shawn was absolutely hilarious in this episode. In fact, I think he was the one who shined in this episode, I managed to laugh at everything that came out of his mouth. By the end, we get a surprise appearance by Melissa Joan Heart playing Sabrina. A nice crossover that made the episode all the more special. An amazing Halloween episode, if not the best.
  • Candace Cameron and Sabrina the Teenage Witch!

    Jack meets a nice girl who turns out to be a witch who practices withcraft. Eric dates Sabrina. Cory takes Topanga on her first airplane ride.

    I may not remember this episode too well. I've seen it before, but I haven't seen it recently. I'm trying to remember this episode. Anyways...

    This episode was a little weird, but it was okay. It was cool seeing Candace Cameron from Full House. Same with Melissa Joan Hart as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. I don't agree with witchcraft though. I don't remember what Shawn or anyone else was doing in this episode though. This episode gets an 8.0.
  • This epsiode was okay, but the acting was terrible.

    I thought this episode was okay because in the end Jack and Eric realized they were friends no matter what. i personally though they should have left their relationship how it as shown in this episode. Eric wasn\'t really duh stupid and Jack was an arrogant SOB. I also though Candice Cameron Bure did a horrible job, her acting was so non belivable, it was almost as if she didn\'t ant to be there. I was shocked because she usually five a great performance in full house. The side story was a little lame, and also quite unbelivable. Cory\'s hair looked really ,messy in this episode too.
