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).

Saved By The Bell was one of the best shows that ever aired on Saturday mornings. Ok so it wasn't a show full of Emmy quality performances, but it was a show that was an escape from the everyday pressure that school has on its students. Saved By The Bell centers on a group of friends and their ups and downs through high school. Filled with memorable moments and interesting characters, SBTB is one of the best young adult programs of its time. It has stood the test of time and still remains a popular program. I think it was a show made for the sure purpose of entertaining its young audience for a half an hour. There are a lot of episodes that were pretty amusing. Never again will a generation make such a connection as the one mine did with SBTB, the series starred Mark Paul Gosselaar as Zack Morris, the main character who each week spun in and out of several pretty extreme situation. His main squeeze Kelly Kapowski played by Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, and the most popular geek Screech, played by Dustin Diamond. Also along for the ride were Slater, Jessie, and Lisa, who made up the rest of the gang. I don't think that it was ever aimed to break the barriers of great television it was what it was. Sure the series made high school look like a piece of cake, for example being able to go to The Max whenever they wanted, taking advantage of the principal, and tricking nerds into doing anything they wanted. But Saved By the Bell was one of those shows that as corny as it may be, it will forever remain one the most entertaining shows in the history of children's entertainment.
