'Saved By The Bell' Is Coming Back, But Not In The Way You Think

- Page 1

If you were a child of the early 90s, then I'd be willing to bet my entire life savings that you spent your weekday afternoons checking in on the gang from Bay Sides High School. Saved By The Bell was a huge deal despite only running for 4 seasons, and it's remained a favorite of every 90s kid right until the present day.

ABC

The show focused on the misadventures of a group of six friends and their high school principal, which pretty much meant that there was a character for everyone to latch onto. There was the charming and rebellious Zack, the popular Kelly, the intelligent but dense Screech, the jock Slater, the outspoken Jessie, and rich and fashionable Lisa. Of course, there was also their stern but fair principal Mr. Belding, who often clashed with Zack but also respected him.

Time

The show had a lot of the usual teen comedy staples, but at the same time, there were times where it tried to address some pretty real issues. Who can forget when Jessie got addicted to caffeine pills?

Or when Kelly couldn't get her prom dress because her dad went broke?

The show was ultimately every 90s kid's dream sitcom, and we were all sad to see it go. Good thing then that it's coming back! There's a catch though; it's not coming back as a show, or a movie, but as an off-Broadway musical!

Nsync Claims They Were Better Than The Backstreet Boys And We Are Not Okay With It

When I was growing up, there was one band that was my one desire. That's right, Backstreet Boys were my everything. I knew every word, I knew a lot of the dance moves, and I could still tell you all of their full names. However, the 90s were a troubling time. Everywhere you looked, people were trying to make something controversial. They didn't want to just enjoy that glorious pop music, they wanted to pit the bands against each other. When *NSYNC entered the pop music game, everyone had to pick a side. Were you loyal to BSB, or were

When the Spice Girls met up a several weeks ago, we all lost our collective minds.

Well, we've had our hearts broken by Posh Spice herself when she told us that we weren't going to see a Spice Girls reunion tour, insisting that we had all gotten way too far ahead of ourselves. But she did seem to know that there would be something coming. “There’s something so strong in

8 Young Celebrities We Grew Up Watching Who Ended Up Behind Bars

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all
