Note: I do not wish to discuss the cast members' personal misdeeds and such, so please bear that in mind. Thanks. I've been a fan of this show since childhood, and noticed there was already a thread for it, but it hadn't been updated in years. I recently bought the "Complete Collection" box set plus the two movies on DVD; now I'm just waiting for a great deal on "The College Years". Say what you will about the "cheese factor" and such, but I miss shows like this today. So much passing for "comedy" on mainstream TV now is crass and crude, with very little imagination. All the main characters on "Saved By The Bell" represented a certain stereotype, but unlike today's programs, the actors and writers embraced such things instead of fearing them. Zack was the schemer with a heart of gold, while Kelly served as the voice of reason, and Slater was the guy everyone wanted backing them up. Lisa was the fashion queen, Screech the comic relief, and Jessie the intellectual with a dash of paranoia. All of them worked together like a big family, and I really wish they'd make stuff like this now without treating the viewers stupidly.
