In lieu of a real post today, I am instead going to list my top 5 favorite Saved by the Bell episodes as inspired by recent rumors that they would be reuniting via Jimmy Fallon -
5 - The one where the sleazy guy sells Zach fake class rings so they make Screech look like a badass in the karate outfit. Though after what we know about Mario Lopez now, Screech kicking his ass seems more likely.
4 - The one where Kelly starts dating Jeff and breaks up with Zach at the picnic table outside of prom. What a bitch. Call me.
3 - The one where the students get to be teachers and Kelly makes all the football players take a test during the big Valley v Bayside game. She makes up for it by putting smiley face stickers on their tests. Also one of my favorite scenes ever when Zach tells the final score and they roll the cheesiest football game footage ever. Like not only did Kelly hold them from the game - she also made them travel back to the 70's for the game.
2 - The one where they go to the toga party and get wasted - then end up wrecking their car. I learned a lot from this episode - togas are never ok.
1 - The one where Zach is stuck in detention so he can't win the tickets to Hawaii from the radio show. It gets pretty intense when he dresses a skeleton up as himself and sneaks out of detention - having Screech distract Mr Belding by cutting his bonsai tree. Newer shows like 24 could take a few lessons on how to create drama and make the viewer's heart race.
And in response to Chris's Twitter yesterday - no way is Lisa hotter than Kelly.
