TV Shows - Saved by the Bell

Saved by the Bell is an American television sitcom that aired between 1989 and 1993. The series is a retooled version of the 1988 series Good Morning, Miss Bliss, which was itself later folded into the history of Saved by the Bell. The series followed the exploits of several students along with their principal at Bayside High School. The show stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Dustin Diamond, Lark Voorhies, and Dennis Haskins, who appeared in Good Morning, Miss Bliss, as well as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Mario Lopez, who joined the cast for Saved by the Bell. The show brought fame to the cast members and launched most of their careers; however, many were typecast into their Saved by the Bell roles for many years. The show often incorporated dramatic elements into episodes by dealing with real teen social issues, such as friendship, drug use, driving under the influence, homelessness, financial issues, divorce, graduation, college, sibling rivalry, taking responsibilities for one's actions, bullying, death, and environmental issues. This made it a precursor (with other teen sitcoms of the time like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) for networks of more recent shows such as Dawson's Creek and The O.C. to introduce young target audiences to critical moral matters. Notably, sexual relationships were alluded to but not actually dealt with. The show's popularity allowed for two spin-off series: Saved by the Bell: The College Years, a prime time series which followed several of the original characters' college experiences, and Saved by the Bell: The New Class, a Saturday Morning series which followed a new group of students at Bayside High School.[3] The series also spawned two TV movies and a short-lived comic book series. The series is also available in French: Sauves par le gong, Spanish: Salvados por la campana, Portuguese: Galera do barulho, Italian: Bayside School and German: California High School.

1 Season 2 changes everything with this show. Zack finally hooked up with Kelly and his rivalry with Slater was gone. Slater gave in to the belief that he would never have Kelly, so he paired off with Jessie. Worst of all, Max left the show and everything that made the first season work was out the door. Screech went from being very smart to a doofus impersonating Shaggy from Scooby Doo. Yet, somehow Screech was still the valedictorian of Bayside. There were so many things that bugged me about this show. Kelly is supposed to be the Marilyn Monroe of Bayside, but almost no one pursues her. What made Zack so popular? In reality, I could see him keeping Screech around to do his homework, it made no sense for Screech to stick around when he was constantly put down by his "friend". Also, there is no way a Kelly Kapowski would have a neurotic Jessie Spano by her side. I have two questions for the SBTB screenwriters. How did Principal Belding get on Zack's bed in that one episode? That's all kinds of wrong. Lastly, how did Zack graduate from Bayside not once but twice? Did they really expect us to believe the slimy conman matured over the seasons? -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on October 16, 2014, 8:17 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I just watched the Lifetime movie, "The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell" movie. And say what you will about Dustin Diamond and what he has become but from watching the movie you feel he got the raw deal. But I guess that's what the point of his book and the movie was about. He was two years younger then the rest of the cast. So he was kind of the younger brother who always hanged around. And seems like he was there had more in common with Screech then he wants to admit. He was never the heart throb, or really that cool in real life. But according to his book and movie it felt like he was only there to be the, "pet nerd."He'd do the hard work, do some slapstick, be the butt of a lot of jokes and Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Mario Lopez would get all the glory and do all the glamour thing. Best example is when NBC sent the cast to different places to promote the show for syndication. NBC sends Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tiffani Thiessen to Paris. They send Lark Voorhies and Elizabeth Berkley to New York and they send Mario Lopez to Miami. Were does Dustin go? Some small college town in Rural South Carolina. You felt bad for the guy. But I guess that was his point. -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on September 16, 2014, 1:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Don't get me wrong, this show was terrible at times. Did AC Slater really believe his buddy bands were going to be a hit over Zack's friendship bracelets? 1989 was the year of friendship bracelets, then came the slap wraps (slap bracelets, ftwdk) one year later. Yeah, I miss the late 80s and early 1990s. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 1:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 This is my generation's Andy Griffith Show. It' so bad (not in the Michael Jackson way), it's good. I can watch it all day and at any time. Sure, it boned the fish over and over, but it's still watchable. I just realized the other day that this show was "That Early 90s Show" for those of us who wanted one. Everything is there from the workout pants to the hi top fades. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 1:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

6 Although this show was pretty bad, it got even worse when Screetch transformed into Scooby Doo's Shaggy when he started saying "Zoinks!" and Scooby Doo's Thelma when he started saying "Jinkies!" Did the writers on this show have any original thoughts at all?? When they had that episode in Hawaii I totally expected them to be riding around in the Mystery Machine being chased by a "freaky ghost" in a Gordon's fisherman yellow jacket. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 2:37 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 This show was entertaining to watch a long time ago, but certainly not worthy of a movie based on it and the actors (thanx Screech) -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on August 29, 2014, 8:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 It boned the fish once Zack finally got Kelly. It was too hard to believe that Zack Morris, after fighting it out with Slater for one semester, could get Kelly in the snap of a finger. The show wasn't fun anymore once he got her. SBTB put the skin back on the fish once Kelly hooked up with Jeff. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on August 5, 2014, 1:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 This show was cheesy and silly. I find it hard to believe that these six people ran the school. How the hell could dumbass Zack be part of the Glee Club, Student Council, Yearbook, ROTC, etc. You have to have a certain grade point average and all Zack made were D's and F's. Guess that school had no standards. Mr. Belding was like a pedophile cause he always found a way to hang around that gang even going as far as coming over to Zack's house with pizza and calling the smart kids nerds and geeks. Screech was a stalker who Lisa should have filed a restraining order on. If you didn't hang out with them you were a geek, dork, jerk, etc. yet they hung around Jessie and Screech who are "nerds" according to Zack's definition of them. -- Submitted By: (ShadowSixx) on February 12, 2014, 4:09 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Terrible show. Unlikable kids. A click of popular kids with the one nerd friend who they constantly insult and mistreat. What a great lesson to teach kids. I also remember Slater(?) always calling Zack a prep, but thought Slater dressed like a prep himself. Wierd. I also read the article in which the guy who played Zack kinda dissed the show saying it wasn't that good.It seemed to upset some of the show's fans, but at least he was being honest about what he thought. -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on November 28, 2012, 6:29 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

12 Lark Voorhies (who played Lisa) is just in denial if she says nothing is wrong with her (this having to do with the rumors that she's bipolar).. the interviews with her i saw (most recently on ET) were a little strange -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on November 9, 2012, 2:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Even Mark-Paul Gosselaar (aka Zac Morris) admitted the show didn't age very well.. i liked it when it first aired, but i can't even stomach it now, let alone the bad acting and cheesy theme song -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on June 27, 2012, 6:36 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

16 I liked the show as a kid. I threw all realism out the door when I watched this show. I knew this wasn't what high school was like for anyone, a magical, happy place where everyone got along and the principal was your best buddy, but it was fun cheese. Like most guys, I thought Kelly was hot and that was extra incentive to watch. I think the show boned when they went off to college. It should have ended in high school. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 5, 2011, 1:14 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

18 It used to be on in the afternoons following Hawaii Five 0(there's quality - seriously) which meant that if you didn't flip the channel immediately you sort of might get drawn into it. I knew what it was too but kind of watched with a certain puzzled curiosity. I think the point where I started flipping the channel immediately after H50 was this one episode about drugs. I can't remember the details, but this had to one of those "Very Special...". Anyway, the episode ends with one of the girls in a hospital bed launching into a touching speech..." I guess this has taught me a valuable lesson that drugs really are bad...etc,etc. I don't remember it all but the gyst of the story was that one of the gang becomes a hardened drug addict and recovers all within 30 minutes after smoking a joint at the beginning of episode. It certainly taught me one...drugs may be bad but so is this. I have to wonder what SBTB bloopers look like. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on February 27, 2011, 7:07 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 BTW the cheesiest part of the show was how Screech was the nicest treated nerd ever and was actually included with the rest of them sometimes but sometimes he wasn't, and it was totally random. WTF? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on February 27, 2011, 5:55 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 Oh MAN...you guys have made me almost ashamed to admit I ever liked this show back in the day. Almost :-) Yes, I knew it was cheesy as hell but maybe that was the appeal, since in real life high school was hell and I just used that show as escapism every now and then. I wonder whatever happened to Lark Voorhies and if she tries to hide the fact she was ever on this show? LOL -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on February 27, 2011, 5:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
