Saved by the Bell Season 1 Recap

Saved by the Bell Season 1 Recap

A note on episode order. Some of you will no doubt notice that there are a few more episodes that were produced during season one. They are even in the season one DVD box set. However, the Saved by the Bell episode list is a mess,. Episodes were aired out of order left and right and a few, such as these early episodes, were aired out of season. Therefore, I’ve made the decision that I’ll be reviewing in airing order. Also, the Complete Series DVD box set is a mess in terms of episode order. They claim to have all episodes in order of airing, but “The Election” and “Save That Tiger” is out of order, and several season two episodes are included in season three. I don’t even think they know when things were produced/aired. Therefore, I will be following the IMDB list. read more

Victor/Victrola. Episode 1×07.

Victor/Victrola. Episode 1×07.

I wonder what this cutesy movie-name ripoff could allude to. Which character will be outed as a transvestite? My money is on Rufus.

Guess what. Serena’s back in New York! Again. Hasn’t anything else happened in the other five episodes after the pilot?

Who’s that girl? My money is on Little Jenny Humphrey. I guess I’m smarter than Gossip Girl.

Chuck likes burlesque. Before you go with the obvious gay retort, I’m talking about actual burlesque, not that Cher and Christina Aguilera flick. read more

vlcsnap-2014-04-03-21h46m15s10We open with Weasel walking down the hallway carrying a bunch of football equipment on a stick. I guess this is supposed to be funny but, like most of the jokes in this series, it completely falls flat. And, oh joy, another football episode. Is this Friday Night Lights suddenly? read more

Saved by the Bell Season 1, Episode 16: “Save That Tiger”

Saved by the Bell Season 1, Episode 16: “Save That Tiger”

It’s hard to believe, especially since we just did the pilot last week, but it’s time for our first season finale. And, oh, they had to go and start it off with the funky sounding version of the theme song. This doesn’t bode well already…

So it’s the city cheerleading competition and apparently cheerleading is so highly thought of in the Saved by the Bell universe that it inspires a prank war every year between Bayside and Valley. Don’t you just remember those old days when cheerleaders inspired your high school to rumble. Seriously, why wasn’t this in the homecoming episode where it belonged? read more

The Handmaiden’s Tale. Episode 1×06.

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
