Good Morning, Miss Bliss…Reviewed

Before I recap Good Morning, Miss Bliss, a few announcements. First of all, I want to thank everyone who’s read, shared, and liked this blog over the past few months. I especially want to thank all of my wonderful commenters who have made this blog extremely fun to do and have given feedback and to TMC for posting about the blog on message boards. I have to admit I’m having a blast doing this blog but you guys really make it worth it.

Earlier this month, I launched Very Special Episode, what I hope will become a network site with pop culture reviews. It’s already launched its first new blog, Gossip Girl Here, a blog reviewing every episode of Gossip Girl one week at a time, written by regular SBTB Reviewed commenter senorbrightside. In the coming weeks, I hope to launch more new features, so be on the look out as I have tons of ideas. read more

Good Morning, Miss Bliss: Original Pilot

Good Morning, Miss Bliss: Original Pilot

Yeah, you didn’t really think I’d forget about this one, did you?

I have so been looking forward to doing this episode, but I put off doing it until the end because, frankly, it’s only loosely related to the Saved by the Bell universe. The only character who appeared in this pilot who would be carried over to Saved by the Bell is Mr. Belding, and he’s played by a different actor and even has a different first name here. But I’m actually quite impressed with the casting of the pilot. In fact, the pilot has only been aired one time and has never been rebroadcast, and was not a part of the Saved by the Bell syndicated package. It’s a miracle we have a copy of it at all and, despite the bad quality, I’m just thankful that someone, somewhere actually taped it. read more

Good Morning, Miss Bliss Episode 13: “The Mentor”

Good Morning, Miss Bliss Episode 13: “The Mentor”

Ah, it’s the last episode of Good Morning, Miss Bliss you guys! I’ve almost made it through all thirteen episodes! It’s an exciting milestone, so stay tuned after the review for a couple of announcements.

Talking Baseball

In our cold opening, Screech inserts himself into a conversation between Zack Morris, Not-Slater, and Not-Jessie about baseball, wanting to know what position he’s going to play. They tell him he’s hella bad at baseball so they’re just going to let the opposing team throw foul balls at him instead. read more

Good Morning, Miss Bliss Episode 12: “Clubs and Cliques”

Good Morning, Miss Bliss Episode 12: “Clubs and Cliques”

Trevor Rick

In our cold opening, we meet two guys who look way too old to be junior high students, Trevor and Rick. They’re members of a club called the “Rigmas” which is apparently some cool club that has the best parties and the best women. They invite Lisa to a party on Friday night and she is, of course, elated. They then invite Zack Morris to join them and they tell him that they’ll give him the pledge rules after school.

Pledge Zack Morris

After the credits, Miss Bliss tells us in voice over that pledging school clubs isn’t for everyone because you have to take orders, do insane things, and endure constant humiliation, which means that, of course, Zack Morris was up to it if it meant joining the cool kids. Trevor and Rick make an announcement which requires Zack Morris to stand up in the middle of class and sing…oh god…”Swanee,” an old song by George Gershwin and Irving Caesar from1919, the year my grandfather was born. Yeah…we’re less than three minutes in and I already think this episode is ridiculous and being written by someone with no idea what kids are actually familiar with. I can see it now: read more

Good Morning, Miss Bliss Episode 11: “Stevie”

Good Morning, Miss Bliss Episode 11: “Stevie”

Just to warn you guys, this one is a doozey. I thought “Wall Street” was bad but it looks like Citizen Kane compared to what I just watched. I never want to watch this episode again.

Waiting for Stevie

In the cold opening (which is inexplicably back after a two episode hiatus), Zack Morris, Lisa, Not-Slater, Not-Jessie, and a young Stephen Hawking are waiting on the staircase for some pop singer named “Stevie” to come around. She’s apparently planning to come to JFK to sing the song that her career was launched from on the stage her career was launched from, because lots of pop singers get their starts on the middle school stage. Zack Morris declares, “Me Zack Morris! Stevie belong me!” and Lisa, who is the president of the Stevie Fan Club, tells him to shut the fuck up because Stevie is seventeen years old and would never commit sexual assault by going for him. She would go for River Phoenix instead, once again seriously dating this series. I don’t know what it was with the writers in the Saved by the Bell universe but they seriously liked to talk about girls going for River Phoenix. read more
