Did You Know?

Trivia:
The final graduation episode had already been shot when the network ordered additional episodes. Tiffani Thiessen and Elizabeth Berkley were attached to other projects by that time, necessitating the creation of a replacement character Tori, who was played by Leanna Creel. The Tori episodes aired in the middle of the other final season episodes to sidestep continuity problems; the Tori paradox was based on the idea that Tori, Kelly, and Jessie were all at Bayside at the same time and simply had different classes and different social interactions with Zach, Slater, Screech, and Lisa that never overlapped.See more »

A show that reminds you of a simpler time in life., 14 September 2004
Author: movieman-192 from Sydney, Australia

I honestly still love watching Saved by the bell, i have season 1 - 4 on DVD & also the college years on DVD too, i have admit that whenever i watch this it puts in a very different state of mind, I mean if you think about it this show is about 15 years old or so, every time i watch this show it reminds me of the good & simple life you lived as a kid. Truthfully admit it or not, there are a few episodes in Saved by the bell that are really cheesy boring, but you can't expect every episode to be a class. If your a fan you should definitely buy this on DVD its worth it. I've noticed that none of the six leading stars of this show Zac, Slater, Screech, Jessie, Lisa or Kelly are big stars now, their all doing their own things. It's always been clear that Zac ( Mark-Paul Gosselaar ) was the best actor out of the six & if your a fan of him i recommend that you watch his movie Dead man On campus ( 1998 ) that movie is so funny. If someone now watches Saved by the bell they won't appreciate it as much as the older fans would. Some other shows i loved when i was young were Perfect Strangers, The smurfs, Family Matters, Full House, Married With Children, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Inspector Gadget, Garfield & Friends, The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air & many more which i can't think of at the moment.
