The title of this blog post hooked you. You salivated–admit it. You spent your afternoons after school as I did. We all watched Saved By The Bell. Whether you care to believe it or not, the show began TWENTY YEARS AGO! Crap, it does not feel like that long.
I am on a bit of a spending limit this month so my magazine purchases have come to a halt. It was such a no brainer that this issue of People Magazine was the king of all exceptions. Just look at the writing on the front page
Hookups? YES! Meltdowns? YES! The memories are great and all, but it’s the killer juicy gossip that the public needs to know.
First of all, the memories they shared were…nice. It seemed as though they were all buddies back in the day. The hook-ups? All it really said was that they all had crushes and/or dated one another at some point in the shows very long run. Boooring! As far as the supposed meltdowns, there were none mentioned. These folks are as exciting as vanilla ice cream.
Here’s the girls. I have to say, either there is a whole lot of airbrushing going on, or they have aged in the best way. They are all in their mid thirties but I’d card the three of them in a heartbeat if they ordered a drink.
And the boys. The signature blond is out of Zack’s hair and the mullet has been cut from Slater’s. I had a minimal crush on Zack when I was younger. He’s still looking pretty good.
But where’s Screech?!?!
There he is! If you can read the fine print, you will love that he is penning a tell all book about the show. I probably won’t buy it. I dunno, maybe. Maybe you can buy it for me so I don’t have to stand in line at Barnes and Noble embarrassed about a book sporting Dustin Diamond’s face on it.
So, that was it. I blew a few dollars on this. SBTB is still playing apparently, on cable. If we ever have cable again, I am going to force The Max to watch it with me.
