Special Minus-Five Edition Nostalgia




This installment is for Sarah, who complains that my nostalgia never interests her, because I'm so old.

The whole time my kids were growing up (the first batch), this was running and re-running in the background, and the soundtrack of my life was the sound of Screech's voice.

Stolen from the web:
Saved By the Bell was one of the most popular teen shows shown on NBC. This show focused on Zack Morris and his friends: Samuel "Screech" Powers, Kelly Kapowski, Jessie Spano, A.C. Slater, and Lisa Turtle. They had adventures and funny moments at Bayside High School in Palisades, California. They often tried to fool the gullible principal, Mr. Richard Belding, but also sometimes got advice from him. They regularly hung out at a burger joint called "The Max," which was owned in first season by a magician named Max. As the years went by, they had adventures and relationships that lasted a long time. In the third season,
the gang spent the summer at Malibu Sands, an exclusive beach club owned by Mr. Carosi, and his daughter Stacey Carosi, whom Zack fell in love with. The final season saw the arrival of a new castmember, Tori Scott, who took the place of Kelly and Jessie when Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Elizabeth Berkley left the show in mid-season. The show ended with the gang graduating and heading off to college in the spin-off series, Saved by the Bell: the College Years. There was also another spin-off to this show called Saved by the Bell: The New Class.

Wasn't there a Saved By The Bell TV movie at some point? Something to do with Zac having a thick neck, golf courses and a wedding? Or was that in my dreams?

i was two or three years too old for saved by the bell. my sister watched it though. and so did my little brother. and i secretly watched it on occasion. if you want to really impress me, you'll do an entry on 90210.

biggy: i give up on who screech's real brother is. it is NOT neil diamond or mike d of the beastie boys. i do know that much.

I was totally a Saved By the Bell fan. Actually own the first & second season DVD set. Classic stuff. Way better then how it started as "Mrs. Bliss' class" or something like that with Hayley Mills. Just good old fashioned teen fun. 90210 was great too...especially when Kelly Kapowski came on in the later seasons.
