18 Of The Darkest Moments In Comedy TV Shows
When Shawn joined a cult on Boy Meets World
Episode: “Cult Fiction”
It’s by far one of the weirdest episodes of Boy Meets World, but it’s also among the most educational. After Shawn has a little talk with Mr. Turner, he feels a bit discouraged about not having much of a support system. But Sherri, who overhears it all, uses this opportunity to encourage him and leads him to “The Centre.” There, he meets all of Sherri’s friends, who seem to be obsessed with hugs. But when he meets their leader, Mr. Mac, he instantly realizes that it’s a cult.
The saddest part, though, is that his realization doesn’t seem to stick. Not too long after, Shawn actually joins the cult, claiming he’d found a place where he could truly be himself. And unfortunately, even Cory couldn’t get through to him. It wasn’t until Mr. Turner landed in the hospital and Shawn prayed that he was able to break free of the cult’s grasp. WHEW.
