To celebrate the (kind of) half(ish)way point to Season 7 of Boy Meets World, we’re pitting Danielle, Will and Rider against each other to see who can “draft” the best team of BMW characters from the episodes they’ve seen so far. Who will be the #1 pick? Which Matthews parent will go first? And is Yasmine Bleeth even available if she doesn’t remember being on the show? 
Things get heated when the gang goes head-to-head-to-h...

We’ve got a winner! “City Slackers” is a pivotal episode for Rider and Will, because while one faced disciplinary action, the other worked with a “master magician” (and just wait until you hear more about that guy!)
We get a rare Feeny/Shawn storyline and Rider shares how his love of Counting Crows has forever connected him to the legendary band.

And you won’t believe the behind the scenes true story of Will’s final trick ...

Media trained or not, this episode brought out a lot of feelings. It may be the beginning of the meaningful storylines and character development we’ve been waiting for, but it’s also the start of “crazy pants” when it comes to Eric. Will this recipe for sitcom be the moment that fixes Season 3 for our hosts?

Another legendary line read from the great Blake Sennet is praised, and Mr. Williams gets the storyline he deserves.

Imagine a game show where the casts of Boy Meets World, Saved by the Bell and Full House, competed against each other by jumping and strategizing around a favorite childhood game. Can we make that dream a reality? Rider is not down.

But onto bigger and better things - it’s time to tackle the episode, “This Little Piggy,” which gives us more Topanga, but not in the way we wanted. Will the downward spiral of Season 3 continue, or ca...

The gangs’ concerns about Season 3 sure are stacking up - but are they just facing another bout of Drop Shock? 

With Topanga back on the call sheet, there’s hope, but the absence of tripods, cameras and cables are stealing most of Rider’s attention.

Plus, this episode inspires Will to admit to a lifelong lie he told about Bon Jovi and some tour travel stories are in full effect…
