We started with a road-tripping Cory and Eric, and when they are three hours from home, Eric makes a detour, frustrated his life has gone nowhere, and determined to stay in his new favorite town. He’s eventually persuaded to come home, and the story gets going in full.
Cory’s neuroses are in full display now, from a overreaction to his appearance, and how he compares to Topanga, to a major freakout when his dad quits his job at the grocery store, to the first appearance of Cory as an old Jewish man when he gets tonsillitis, and Shawn tried to convince him he’s going to disappear.
The main arcs of this season get set up in these first few episodes, with Amy purchasing a sporting goods store for Alan, to Cory and Topanga getting into a groove with their relationship. Shawn’s mother returns after a year plus of being on the run, and the Hunter’s learn to be a family again, with Shawn adjusting to his dad being the janitor at his school.
There are so many funny moments, I won’t be able to cover them all, but I’m going to try!
