one of my favorite shows EVER!!!!!! better than Saved by the bell
29 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this show it was better than Saved By The Bell, it seem more credible. I love the actor that portrayed Jake, actually I had a crush on him (Jay Anthony Franke) HE WAS HOTT!!! he was cool, not too overrated,,,, I love sly, Tiffany,Sam,Tony they were all really funny,, I still watch the reruns whenever I can brought me back good memories,when i was in junior high, so why not it was a great show, plus they didn't have that dork screech, LOL i couldn't stand him he was not funny, he was dumb. Sly was FUNNY! lol and cute to look at. The girls were hilarious my favorite one was Tiffani, I thought she was the stereotypical blond California girl LOL cute sassy, perky surf-boarder, Samantha was hilarious(great singer too) Jenny from the first two seasons was cool. I recently saw the reunion not bad, everyone looked great....... The only thing that sux, was well that the show ended much quicker than saved by the bell, it should have been longer, anyways it was a great show.
