Season 2, Episode 17, “Jimmy Durante Died for Your Sins”

Season 2, Episode 17, “Jimmy Durante Died for Your Sins”

Ben comes home and Jason asks, “how’s school today.”

Ben replies, “fantastic!” Because, this morning, when the principal was finishing doing announcements over the PA, she got shocked when she touched the microphone and cussed. Ben goes over to the kitchen table as Mike comes in. Quickly after, Ben turns on the radio to WZLP and it’s 4:15, so it’s “jackpot call-in time.” If you call in and correctly tell them the name of the song they’re playing, you can win $2,000.

However, you’re not winning that much, because the Government takes a portion of it. read more

Saved by the Bell Season 3, Episode 21: “No Hope With Dope”

Saved by the Bell Season 3, Episode 21: “No Hope With Dope”

Since I’ve been doing this for a year now, I thought I’d let you in on my process. I always view episodes once so I can take screenshots and think of what I’m going to say. I write the actual review while I’m viewing the episode a second time and sometimes take a break in between the two, as I did today.

As I was on my way to the train station during my break, I passed a couple crouching behind a bush trying to smoke a joint clandestinely. Remembering the lesson I learned tonight from this episode, I told them, “There’s no hope with dope!” read more

The New Class Season 3, Episode 3: “Driving School”

The New Class Season 3, Episode 3: “Driving School”

You know, we had two episodes in a row of The New Class that weren’t exactly good, but were a huge improvement over last season. I had high hopes this trend would continue. Then this episode came along. This horrible rip-off of two Saved by the Bell episodes as well as a season one episode of The New Class. Oh, the things I watch for this site.

*sigh* Here we go.vlcsnap-2015-01-12-18h33m17s92 We open with Maria super-stoaked that her father is buying her a Cherokee for her upcoming sixteenth birthday. No, not a Native American, although that wouldn’t surprise me in the least coming from this show, but a car. Meanwhile, Lindsay turns down a date to The Max after school with Ryan so she can illegally practice driving with Tommy D. Wait…Lindsay is just learning to drive? She’s at least a junior, maybe a senior, by now. Why is she just now learning to drive? Why do I expect this show to have a chronology that makes sense?!?! Anyway, Ryan decides the only way to get Lindsay to go with him instead of Tommy D is to get his own car. Blah blah blah. read more

Season 2, Episode 15, “Thank God It’s Friday.”

Season 2, Episode 15, “Thank God It’s Friday.”

Ben answers the phone and it’s Bobby calling to tell Carol they can’t go out tonight, because he got his 3rd speeding ticket in three months.

From that, it’s surprising Jason and Maggie even let Carol go out with him.

Jason comes into the kitchen wondering where Maggie is because they’re suppose to go to the movies tonight. Before Jason finds out about Carol not having a date, he gets ready to call the sitter. He doesn’t because Carol’s on the other phone and thinks it’s Ben, again, so she tells him to get off the phone “pee brain.” Maggie comes home and says she forgot about their plans but is too tired, from work, anyway. So now all the Seavers are staying home, except for Mike who has plans to go out with Eddie and Boner. read more

Saved by the Bell Season 3, Episode 20: “Hold Me Tight”

Saved by the Bell Season 3, Episode 20: “Hold Me Tight”

vlcsnap-2015-01-09-20h43m16s250

Our episode opens at wrestling tryouts, where the writers remembered they did an episode last season where the gang worked for the school radio station, KKTY, the best country music in Douglas, Wyoming! For some reason, Zack Morris is there covering tryouts on behalf of the radio station because…radio stations apparently cover tryouts, and he witnesses Slater apparently assaulting a random boy who was cutting through the gym. Unfortunately, his engineer happens to be a complete dumb ass who didn’t broadcast throughout the interview. Three guesses who that character could be. read more
