The New Class Season 4, Episode 8: “Fall Formal”

The New Class Season 4, Episode 8: “Fall Formal”

Ah, yes, it’s time for yet another dance at Bayside. I swear, this school has more unnecessary dances. Until I was a junior, we were lucky if we had two or three dances. This school…

Well, naturally, this is THE event of the year, and Nicky hopes to take Katie to the dance because, despite them dating in the last two episodes, that apparently isn’t enough to convince Nicky’s low New York self-esteem that he’s good enough for Katie.

Ryan, though, says that it’s going to suck ass because of the musical guests. read more

Season 3, Episode 24, “How the West Won: Part 1”

Season 3, Episode 24, “How the West Won: Part 1”

Once again we have a two-parter. That’s not a bag thing. It just seems like that’s all we’ve been getting. The Best part is that it’s not another clip-show. If it was, I’d cry.

Just a precaution, this episode is pretty boring for the first half. Then it gets better.

Jason, just having gotten done with the laundry, goes into the kitchen. Ben comes home from school and tells him that his teacher called him in during researched and reamed him for being truculent. At first Jason cares, but that soons get put to the wasteside. Maggie comes home and her pager soons beeps. It’s work related so she picks up the phone and turns out there’s some kind of protest going down at Dewey High. Mike and Carol are about to be arrested. read more

Our final look at the Tori-verse opens with a triumphant entry to The Max by Zack Morris. Ah, to be Zack Morris this close to graduation! He’s majorly psyched and says no one at Bayside will ever be able to compare to him, no matter how often the producers try to replace him with douche bags and fake Swiss people!

As the gang are the only seniors in the world who matter, it’s their job to come up with a class gift. Zack Morris ants to kiss every girl in school, which I’m pretty sure he’s already done at some point, but, hey, a second time to be sure couldn’t hurt! Last year’s senior class gave Bayside a VCR so Lisa wants to make sure they give the school something that will last just as long, like a laser disc player! read more

We open in the hallway where Mr. Belding and Screech are wearing rain jackets because…there’s a rare rainy day in Los Angeles? No, that would make a whole lot more sense than what they’re actually doing. Instead, they’re dressed like this to announce the Rainy Day Indoor Sports Festival, because why the hell not. Why do they always just loudly announce shit in the middle of the hallway? Did the writers forget that, yes, schools have intercoms?

So apparently students are going to compete in indoor sports like Foosball and pool and shit, with the winner getting a trip to Catalina, because apparently Bayside has the money to send their students to Catalina for a weekend but not to buy fucking soccer uniforms. It’s nice to know their priorities are so in line with reality. read more

We’re back to season one for the final out of season episode of the series, and we open in speech class with Coach Rizzo substituting as the speech teacher. It’s not clear why Coach Rizzo is the only one available to do this but I have to assume Bayside’s having one of their many financial shortfalls that come from investing in too many junk stocks.

Zack Morris tells us in monologue that their class assignment this week is titled, “My Best Friend.” I’m sure he’ll talk about his left hand. Also, it’s strange going back to these season one episodes since Zack Morris’s voice hasn’t deepened yet and I have to remind myself he was only a budding sociopath back then. read more
