The series is notorious for frequently introducing new characters who subsequently disappear in later episodes. Some of the more glaring examples of characters who fall victim to this trend are Jessie's new stepbrother, Eric Tramer (Joshua Hoffman), who, after making peace with the gang and agreeing to live with Jessie permanently, is never seen or spoken of again; Violet Bickerstaff (Tori Spelling), Screech's girlfriend, who disappears mid-way through season 3; and Laura (Jennifer McComb), a homeless girl and Zack's love interest from the two-part Christmas episode, who is to live with the Morris family until her father finds a job, but who is never seen or referred to after these episodes. However, the most obvious example is Tori Scott (Leanna Creel), who transfers to Bayside at the beginning of season four and appears sporadically throughout the season, but she disappears before the graduation episode. Her fate was never revealed. See more »
This show may not appeal at all to most people over the age of about 12, due to it's stereotyping and how the six regular cast members manage to be popular, smart, and involved with every club/sport that they could and always happen to become homecoming queen or something. But for a show to last as long as did with such far-fetched ideas proves it had something. The six regulars were the 'blonde Tom Cruise' Zack, A.C. Slater, Screech, Kelly, Jessie, and Lisa. Then of cause their principal Mr Belding who they had a pretty unique relationship with really. Why this will appeal to kids is because it's funny, and it's storylines are easy to follow and entertaining, and of cause there tends to me a moral to each episode. There is nothing offensive about this show, in fact quite the opposite, it is very innocent and not as bad as people make it out to be. It dared to stereotype and got away with it while being entertaining.
