Like every other person in my age bracket, I grew up adoring Saved by the Bell. Still watch every rerun as if it were a fresh episode, know every random bit of Bayside trivia. Sad to say, I even own a couple of the seasons on DVD.
Taking all of that into account, this is either the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen a celebrity do, the most surreal viewing experience I’ve ever had, or left-field brilliance on the part of Jimmy Fallon executed nicely. Or all three rolled into one strange, memory-lane-navigating package. Respect to Mark Paul-Gosselarr, regardless, for taking one to the chin and having a good time here. Glad to see that he can still jam out with some “Friends Forever” like the Zack Attack frontman of old.
However, I would’ve preferred to have Elizabeth Berkley do a rendition of her legendary, drug-induced performance of “I’m So Excited….I’m….so….scared!”
