The very first edition of the "Saved by the Bell" shows. Takes place at Indiana with a younger Zack Morris, Screech, and Lisa along with Mr. Belding. Nicole and Mikey, two other kids, also run around with Zack and the gang. Miss Bliss and Ms. Paladrino are the kids' teachers. Written by
As a kid born in 1985, I became of a learning age around 1990. At that time, SAVED BY THE BELL was just starting off. Zack, Slater, Kelly, Screech, Lisa, Jessie, Mr. Belding... they were all there. Reruns started about two years after that.
And the reruns messed with my head.
You see, I had no prior knowledge that this Bayside-based high school sitcom actually had roots in a former show entitled GOOD MORNING, MISS BLISS. But apparently everyone else had, so there were no explanations when these episodes were aired under the SAVED BY THE BELL moniker and threw my entire viewing experience off its axis.
It was ve-e-e-ery '80s. Zack was pretty young (around 14 or 15?) and he was aside a prepubescent Screech and two new kids that seemed to be 1989 in the raw. Miss Bliss was weird; and the episode where they invest in potatoes is just damn bizarre.
Like the entire show.
