This show follows Good Morning, Miss Bliss (1987), which took place at John F. Kennedy Junior High School in Indianapolis, Indiana, but was canceled after 14 episodes. NBC retooled the show, gave it its new title, moved it to Bayside High School in Pacific Palisades, California, and removed many of the characters. Dennis Haskins (Mr. Belding), Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), Dustin Diamond (Screech Powers) and Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) were the only actors/characters to make the transition from GMMB to "Saved by the Bell". No explanation was ever given as to why only these four characters moved to California. This has led to a fan theory that SbtB is actually an elaborate daydream by Zack Morris during his GMMB years, where he is a slacker but fantasizes about himself being the cool kid in SbtB who always succeeds and gets away with everything. Supporters of this theory point at the lyrics of SbtB's theme song (which supposedly describe 'slacker' Zack's thoughts), and to Zack's ability to do a "Time-out" (where he temporarily stops time and breaks the fourth wall).

I read a few comments from some users about this show. Many were definitely fans of the show, while others dissed the show completely. I think that Saved By the Bell is a show that many kids grew up with. I know when reminiscing about times when I was younger with friends, Saved by the Bell was brought up. These aren't the friends which whom I grew up. These are the friends I met in college. It seems that pretty much everyone I know has seen Saved by the Bell and loved it. How many people can say they saw each episode about 5 times each? I know I probably did. I miss seeing the re-runs and I enjoy seeing each Saved by the Bell character when they accomplish something new like a new movie or show. It's just too bad you don't see many of the kids from the jr. high years. I remember this show well, and I always will.
