Saved by the Bell Season 4, Episode 21: “Earthquake”

Saved by the Bell Season 4, Episode 21: “Earthquake”

vlcsnap-2015-07-09-14h14m49s0

We’re taking a couple weeks off from our out of season episode marathon to delve back into the Tori-verse! And what better way to jump back in than with Mr. Belding trying his hardest to huff and puff and blow Zack Morris’s house down! No, actually he’s practicing his breathing exercises. See, he managed to go the entire season without mentioning that Mrs. Belding is pregnant and he’s practicing breathing exercises for when she goes into labor. I would say that the fact we haven’t heard, twenty-one episodes into the season, that Mrs. Belding is pregnant is an example of professionalism on the part of Mr. Belding but, with his history of boundary crossing with his students, it’s more likely just another case of writers not feeling the need to foreshadow anything. read more

Season 3, Episode 20, “Dance Fever”

Season 3, Episode 20, “Dance Fever”

We get a nearly two and a half minute recap of the events of last week, by Ben.

Doing it this way definitely adds more personality to the “previously on,” but it goes on way too long. Nothing (at least interesting) even happened till the end of the episode. Wait, why am I ever complaining? That means less episode, which is a good thing.

The actual episode finally starts, and we open to Maggie DJing.

Surprising (according to the crowd), she’s actually pretty successful.

Carol and her friends aren’t having any one ask them to dance. and the former DJ is being carried away on a gurney, read more

Welcome back to the mall where, this week, we’re having a dance contest! Unfortunately, by this time, Casey Kasem had discovered his dignity and decided not to appear in the franchise for a third time so we’ll have to do without his witty commentary for our “Dancing to the Max” rip-off.

And, what’s more, best new dance wins backstage passes to the MTV Video Music Awards! Gee, I wonder if our gang will want to take part! This will be such a surprise!

And here’s Screech with some stupid stuff about carrying a freezing cold bucket of frozen yogurt in his hands or some shit. He also rips off A Christmas Story by briefly getting his lips stuck to the carton because…seeing Screech be stupid and nonsensical is funny I guess? I mean, how many times can I really say, “Screech is an idiot” before the words lose all meaning? This is the comedy genius Dennis Haskins was praising on our behind the scenes documentary. Just remember that. read more

Saved by the Bell Season 4, Episode 20: “Snow White and the Seven Dorks”

Well, this week we’re back on the good ‘ole second season of Saved by the Bell, and what better way to mark our return than a random close-up of a Shakespeare statue. No, it has nothing to do with anything the rest of the episode. It’s just one of those random times the camera person got bored and decided to start filming random stuff on set. There are times I think the crew of Saved by the Bell went to the Ed Wood School of Film-making.

Anyway, the episode proper starts with Zack Morris declaring that, in addition to all the other random activities the gang takes on in their thousand hour days, they’re also a part of the drama class, something Zack Morris excels at since he can almost always con his way out of anything despite the fact even Mother Teresa and the Dalai Llama wouldn’t trust his scheming ways. read more

Season 3, Episode 19, “Dance Fever: Part 1”

I’ll update with pictures later.

Before heading to The Dewey High Dance, The Seavers, along with Boner, are chowing down on some of Jason’s fish sticks.

Knowing how wonderful of a cook Jason is, that sounds gross.

It apparently is gross as Boner’s the only one that wants thirds let alone seconds.

So here’s what’s going down, Jason and Maggie are chaperoning the dance, while Ben is spending the night at Stinky Sullivan’s house. Carol’s friends, Shelley and Debbie, come over, and they all head into the living room. Just as Jason and Maggie leave to drop Ben off, Mike’s other friend Eddie comes over. He tries to butter up Jason and Maggie, so they won’t chaperone the dance. read more
