Saved By The Bell

A little post dedicated to reminiscing upon one of my most prominent memory of childhood tv shows, Saved By The Bell:
 
Ah, these images bring back a few memories of myself as a young girl sat right in front of the tv screen thinking i was much more mature than my seven years, watching the happenings at Bayside High.

I remember Saved By The Bell being my absolute favourite tv show. Although i was born two years after it had finished filming, the show was still going strong into the late 90s. Zack's looks never grew old. I think the eclectic mix of characters and lust to go to an American high school was what interested me...that and the amazing 80's style clothing that featured many zig zag prints and high waisted trousers.

There was a character that everyone could relate to; whether it was the nerdy intellect of Screech, Kelly Kapowski's it-girl looks, the classic macho torso of A.C. Slater, Jessie's independant personality, Lisa's dreams of going into the fashion industry or, the factor that kept me engaged, the charming smile of Zack. It was such a  perfect cast. Personally, i always loved tuning in to see what Kelly wore, she had the most darling outfits and her hair was so lucious with the classic 80s blowdry.

The dynamics between the six friends was such a great balance. There was a theme of matchmaking throughout the show; the cheeky troublemaker Zac was continually flirting with the sweet character of Kelly, Screech endured his tumultuous relationship with Lisa with light hearted conflict based on his geeky appearance, and Kelly, although calling him a 'pig' numerous times, bonded with Slater to make an adorable couple.

Obviously there are certain episodes that i remember more than others. For example, i won't forget the moment when a dance-off took place at the groups local hangout spot, The Max, in which Lisa made Screech's dreams come true by being his dance partner. Aww. I always had a soft spot for Screech. Also, i can recollect myself watching the tv film that was shot when the gang went to work at a hotel resort in Hawaii over and over again.

Gosh, i need to somehow get my hands on the boxset.
