When you wake up in the morning, there’s no possible alarm that can give out the kind of warning that is necessary to hear this story. Lifetime has recently been busy rebranding themselves as something more than just a women-in-trouble network, and they’re reaching out to a wide irony-embracing audience with The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.
Among the more dramatic moments in television in 1990 was the episode of Saved By The Bell in which overachiever Jessie Spano got hooked on caffeine pills in an effort to keep up with her studies and be a part of a singing group with her best friends Lisa Turtle and Kelly Kapowsi. The pressure and the pills got to be too much for her and she got so excited she melted down. Luckily, Zack was there to catch her when she fell.
If you're a child of the 1980s and were a fan of disparate programming such as Knight Rider, Saved By the Bell, Airwolf, Miami Vice and Punky Brewster, there's now a way to follow the latest adventures of your favorite TV shows without scouring YouTube for fan series: comic books. NBC is partnering with comic book company Lion Forge to create digital comics of some of its more popular programs.
The Today show had a treat for their viewers this morning, particularly for those with a nostalgic fondness for Saved by the Bell. Not only was Tiffani Thiessen (a.k.a. Kelly Kapowski) there and ready for a bit of TV trivia, but the segment featured a surprise appearance by Dennis Haskins, known for playing the Bayside High School principal on Saved by the Bell. Watch the video ahead.
The consistently entertaining Fine Brothers have debuted an 8-bit, interactive YouTube game in which you get to help Zack decide which members of the gang to help out of a jam. Will you help Kelly figure out how to go to the prom despite the fact that her dad just lost his job?
