Did You Know?

Originally produced for The Disney Channel, "Good Morning Miss Bliss" was the brainchild of NBC President Brandon Tartikoff, who couldn't get the idea past his own network's executive board. When Disney canceled the show, Tartikoff persuaded the other NBC executives to give the show a chance, and it was reborn as "Saved By The Bell", the most successful teenage-geared show of all time.See more »

I know it's dumb, but I keep watching it, 11 October 1999
Author: Tito-8 from North Bay, Ontario

My opinion of this original version of "Saved By The Bell" has remained virtually unchanged since it premiered over a decade ago. Basically, it's rarely funny, sometimes quite slow-moving, and yet, I still occasionally watch the reruns because it is a pain-free way to kill some time. That's hardly an endorsement, but it is quite the compliment considering how weak this show really is. I can't explain why I watched it when it first aired, and I can't explain why I sometimes watch it now...perhaps these days it's a nostalgic thing, but I don't really know. One thing's for sure: unless you grew up watching this and "Saved By The Bell", you shouldn't bother giving this show a chance.
