'Boy Meets World': Oral History Of Slasher Spoof 'And Then There Was Shawn'

It should be easy to write off "Boy Meets World" as a blip on the lengthy timeline of family-friendly sitcoms. The show opted for simplicity over a high concept hook: at the center was the "Boy," Cory Matthews, a regular kid who navigated the ups and downs of life along with his mom, dad, older brother Eric, younger sister Morgan, his best friend Shawn, romantic interest Topanga, and wise sage of a teacher Mr. Feeny. As a well-intentioned, by-the-books comedy, the conclusion of "Boy Meets World" should have spelled the end of the series in viewers' TV Guides and minds.
