One of my childhood favorite shows ever was "Saved by the Bell". When I heard they were doing a reboot, my first thought was "No! Why?". However, after watching it, I liked how they did this and how the reboot had more diversity then the original.
Don’t get me wrong, the original will always have a special place in my heart, but the reboot is on a whole new level, and that’s good especially with what’s happening right now. The students of Bayside need to have their world thrown upside down. And that’s exactly what happens in the reboot. When students from a not so well funded school get sent there.
There’s a lot of throwbacks to the original, and even some original cast members show up. The new principal of Bayside will never take Belding's place from the original, but he’s a close second. You can see how much he cares for all his students, just like Belding did. So, whether it’s the original or reboot, "Saved by the Bell" is definitely a show that’s not to be missed.

Saved by the bell was one of my fave shows growing up, one that made me really wish I could have gone to an American high school! I absolutely loved Zack and all his antics. I haven't watched the reboot, not sure if I will, but the OG Saved by the Bell will always hold a special place in my heart!

Fun Fact - our black lab was called Zack (because of Saved by the Bell), because it was one of the few names that Greg and I actually said the same. (We originally liked "Chance" - Ask us on live how THAT went lol). Like Susan, I haven't watched the reboot, but the original, and even The College Years, were huge for me growing up. This show is also the reason that I thought American Cheerleaders often wore their cheer uniform in school, well that and Heathers! Oh and they had that whole episode where they became famous and were in a band! That was the dream!
On a more serious note, it's interesting to read about the students being introduced from a less funded school. The original did attempt to deal wth some issues, but not always in the most effective way (and yes, some were down right problematic), but reading that Jenn loves it, and I KNOW how much she loved the original, definitely makes me think I will give it a shot. (Especially as S2 is confirmed. We all know I am the queen of the one season wonders!)
