It's All Right... Cuz I'm Saved by the Bell


Some things I used to love as a child have lost much of their awesomeness (I'm not sure if that's really a word, but I couldn't think of anything else that worked there) as time moved forward. Things like bubble gum ice cream, the Olsen twins, and Vanilla Ice. Fortunately, there are tons of things that still rock from way back when.

Back in the day, my best friend and I would race to her house from the bus and settle in to watch a fabulous episode of Saved by the Bell. We were massively in love with Zach and Slater and if only they knew us, they would be massively in love with us too. Screech and Mr. Belding were alternatively funny and annoying, Kelly was so beautiful, Lisa was rockin' the early 90's fashions, and we all wanted to be as smart as Jessie.

Last night, I found out that with my new Netflix membership (Yep, I'm a bit behind the times) I can watch ALL of the episodes online, ANY time I want. Well, maybe not at work, but other than that. I ended up watching the one where Lisa and Zach hook up, but Screech is not at all happy about it. And I loved it almost as much as I used to. Sure, the lines are cheesy and the acting is slightly unbelievable at times, but it was great to see my old friends Zach, Kelly, Jessie, Slater, Lisa, and Screech again.

I loved that show, too! Ah, good times. Since we're walking down memory lane (not sure if the following will interest you, but I thought I'd take a shot)...did you know that New Kids on the Block are reuniting and going on tour?! I'm BEYOND excited!!

Have a fabulous weekend!

I was forbidden from watching that show. or any teenage-oriented shows. That's right: FORBIDDEN.

There's something wonderful about seeing an old TV show you used to love... I've never seen Saved by the Bell but I have my fair share of equivalents.

I was a bit too old to watch this. But guilty secret: I have. Not much. But mostly because I was a big Tiffany Theissen (sp?) fan from 90210. And sadly, I have also seen another alum but in Showgirls. Which makes me think one should think long and hard about their sophomore career choices.

Another blast from the past which I was pleasantly surprised was actually pretty good was ALF. That's right. The show with walking rug that could be related to Chewibacca. His wit and sarcasm was pretty humorous. If you get bored on Netflix, give Alf a try.
