• The Handmaiden’s Tale. Episode 1×06.

    I’ll give you three guesses to how the recap of previous episodes starts. Anyone who had “Serena’s back!” wins.

    Spotted. The first time we see the blog screen capture transitioning us from the previous to the short title sequence. And the recap was under a minute! We’re getting there.

    Uh oh, there’s going to be a ball on the Upper East Side! This can only mean a few things. Lots of fashion to mock or envy. Humphrey Cinderella references. And mayhem and scandal. I hope we’re not disappointed. read more

    Just a quick note: I’ve been able to successfully buy savedbythebellreviewed.com after it had been parked and unused for a year. As a result, the primary address of this site will now be http://www.savedbythebellreviewed.com. The previous address, savedbythebellreviewed.net, will continue to redirect to the site, but I’d highly recommend you update any bookmarks and site links.

    vlcsnap-2014-04-01-00h21m38s109Our episode opens with Scott coming into The Max and…oh my god! What the hell is he wearing? I lived through the nineties and this was never in fashion, even in the Dawson’s Creek bad sweater phase I lived through in high school. I get that the crew was trying to update the look for a new generation but this is not capturing the spirit of the nineties! read more

  • Saved by the Bell Season 1, Episode 15: “King of the Hill”

    It’s kind of ironic isn’t it: I’m now fifteen weeks, nearly four months, into this blog and I’m just now finally getting to the pilot episode of Saved by the Bell because, for whatever reason, they made the first episode, the episode dealing with the first day of school and the arrival of Slater, the fifteenth fucking episode. This is why I’m reviewing the episodes in order of airing and not production: because, to me, this shows that someone, either at NBC or among the producers, just didn’t give a damn. Even more ironic is it’s the same week I reviewed the pilot for The New Class. This could make for an interesting comparison…

  • The New Class Season 1, Episode 1: “The Date Lottery”

    Welcome to Saved by the Bell: The New Class, aka Saved by the Bell: The Clone Wars, where we will see everything that happened in the original Saved by the Bell repeated with new actors playing characters exactly like their original counterparts because at this point the writers realized they could fill a script with the word “watermelon” over and over and people would still watch. I was so tempted for this entire stupid season to just refer to these characters as they truly are: New-Zack, New-Slater, New-Screech, New-Kelly, New-Lisa, and New-Jessie. However, that requires too much energy and this series is not worth it. read more

  • Saved by the Bell Season 1, Episode 14: “The Zack Tapes”

    Ah, this is one of the episodes that I’ve heard a ton about but never seen. Let’s see if it’s as bad as people say it is!

    vlcsnap-2014-02-15-23h12m56s69

    Our episode opens at The Max where the students are getting ready for a Sweetheart Dance. Apparently this is a dance where the guys give the girl a heart with the guy’s name on it if he wants to go to the dance with her. And, oh, look, the Guy with Buttrock Hair has a name: Jeff!

    vlcsnap-2014-02-15-23h14m16s101

    Anyway, of course Zack Morris and Slater are fighting over who gets to take Kelly to the dance because at this point in the show they wouldn’t have anything else to do if they didn’t. Slater says Zack Morris ain’t goin’ to no stinkin’ dance because he’s in deep shit with Mr. Belding over pouring tea bags in the swimming pool. Wait, either it’s a really small swimming pool or Zack Morris got a whole lots of teabags. Either way, this is a flimsy excuse of a prank at best. And he erased the blackboards with Mr. Federman’s toupee because he apparently didn’t notice it was gone from his head. So Zack Morris’s mother is coming in for a conference and Slater says there ain’t no way she gonna let Zack Morris’s ass out of the house for this dance! read more

  • Bad News Blair. Episode 1×04

    Once again, we’re treated to a rehash of Serena returning from the brothel without vibrating souvenirs and other events from the pilot. I’d think the CW is worried that people might forget exactly why Gossip Girl cares about Serena or something?

    How long will the S&B truce last? I’ll give it to November sweeps.

    Blair’s first dream! A Gossip Girl tradition! To the tune of “Moon River”, Blair dreams that she is   Audrey Hepburn’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s character and S. has taken her spot between the trashily (if trashily isn’t an actual word it should be) dressed Not Mean Girls. read more
