Similar to Saved By the Bell in theme, 9 January 2000
Author: Op_Prime from Ardmore, PA

California Dreams is similar to Saved By the Bell. It's about a group of teens who have a rock band. Like Saved By the Bell, some kind of serious issue arises and the characters have to deal with it. This series was not all that bad. In fact, it was very funny. Catch the reruns where ever you can.
