The boys walk a narrow line between the light and dark sides of the holiday season as they explore the murky world of straight to DVD movies. Mario Lopez and Dean Cain star in the Holiday classic The Dog Who Saved Christmas!
Zack must escape Belding's clutches to win a trip to Hawaii- haven't been there before, have we?
Episode: "Day Of Detention"
Rob and Conall eschew their reviewing duties for some lighthearted gentlemanly discourse and a glimpse into their souls.
Conall is joined this week by the mysterious and enigmatic Joe Ó Cinnéide as secret admirers and art classes abound in Bayside.
Once again a school activity demands the gang do some stuff! Once again they decide to organise a phone line for teens and their problems! Once again Zack courts a woman affected by an ISSUE. Once again a teenage girl is worried that she is too tall. A true episode of new beginnings!
Episode: "Teen Line"
Conall and Rob travel to Hawaii to cover the Saved by the Bell TV movie extravaganza 'Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style'. They encounter a nonplussed native who gives his in-depth thoughts after many years of reflection and contemplation. Zack and the gang go to Hawaii on vacation and once again Zack saves the day for everyone. Screech is literally a White Messiah. Belding pretends to be a more esteemed academic than he actually is. Kelly becomes embroiled in an inappropriate relationship with an older man.
Screech's sick infatuation with Lisa reaches breaking point. Zack once again has the greatest idea ever and everyone loves him (one character in particular). The status quo is forever changed and will definitely have ramifications in future episodes (not). Rob suspects fourth-dimensional trickery at play. Conall suspects Rob is more talented than he.
The gang gets a new member! Rob suffers from a vicious hangover! This and much more on this week's Enslaved By The Bell!
Episode: "The New Girl"
Rob relays his excitement to see a rubbish rock n'roll band. The guys marvel over Screech's culinary ability and how sitcom juggernaut 'Friends' could ever dream to steal a joke from Saved by the Bell.
He's not a hero. He's a silent extra. A watchful nerd. The O'Neill Knight. And this time, he's got something to say for himself. Rob and Conall obsess over the triumphant return of Neil O'Neill and what this means for the future of 'Saved by the Bell'. Rob even reveals a piece of extra-curricular research he has conducted in Neil's name. Will Mullet Mike return to the hallowed halls of Bayside to save the school's soul before Zack's mundane tenure as principal dooms everyone to mediocrity forevermore?
We recorded this episode late one evening, so Rob rocks a sexy late night radio voice. The gang get used to being seniors and Zack and Slater have a fight or something. We were pretty tired.
Episode: "The Fight"
Murder Mystery! Skinny Charles Dance! Season Three ends with a bang and the raised budget that only comes when the production doesn't have to foot the bill for Dennis Haskins!
Episode: "Mystery Weekend"
The Christmas epic concludes. At one point also have a weird argument about what Alec Baldwin's voice sounds like.
Episode:"Home For Christmas: Part 2"
Christmas comes early as Rob and Conall discuss one of two festive episodes of 'Saved by the Bell', as well as further discussion on troubled popstar Robbie Williams. Zack unsurprisingly saves Christmas. Rob scolds Conall's choice of refreshment once again. Slater can't wrap presents. Conall won't allow Rob to interrupt his holiday message. Zack's mother talks of confectionary. Conall loses the run of himself.
After two landmark episodes, the status quo comes roaring back to life with yet another mundane episode where the gang suffer through the daily grind of Bayside life. A suspicious academic tradition known as 'Cut Day' tantalizes Zack with the promise of freedom, but that freedom comes at a price. Jesse and Slater pioneer new age relationship techniques. The politics of Margaret Thatcher are celebrated. Rob outsmarts Conall for the thousandth time.
This week the hang dabble in superstardom and Rob gleefully whips out the Casey Casem impression he's been practicing since Casey's last appearance.
Did we ever have a chance?
Never toke, it's no joke.
Before you know it you'll be dead in a wheelchair getting a lift to the beach from your biker sister and her friend Skud!
We are joined by very special guest Luke "Just Say No" Maxwell of The Movie Express Podcast as the gang are joined by Hollywood star with a taste for the green (and we don't mean veggies). This week we watch the one, the only "NO HOPE WITH DOPE"
Episode: [see above]
This week's Saved by the Bell sees Zack becomes a social crusader, devoted to the cause of feminism, because this week it's convenient for him. Jessie dismisses the notion that women can become wrestlers, because this week her feminist streak isn't convenient for her. The auto shop guy is back, but this time he's a wrestling coach. Casper Van Dien makes a very special appearance. Conall is plussed - Rob is not.
We're back in the Engel brothers resort to wrap up the antics of part one.
Episode: "Palm Springs Weekend (Part 2)"
Part one of an epic two-parter in which Jessie's father gets married, Conall attempts aerobics and Rob remembers a movie he slept through.
Episode: "Palm Springs Weekend (Part 1)"
The gang take their S.A.T.s. Results being that Zack obviously gets to be a wunderkind and Jessie falls back into her Caffeine Pill habits. Slater gets a car or something.
A bottle episode that isn't a bottle episode. The gang at their absolute worst. Conall at his least surprised. Rob, his most frustrated. Did the writers want the characters to learn anything? To develop in any way whatsoever? The dynamic duo debate these questions and more as they descend further and further down the noxious abyss of Peter Engel's design.
We're joined this week by prominent SavedBelliologist Philip Hickey as the gang hold a repulsive fundraiser for some cheerleading uniforms.
Episode: "Date Auction"
The gang are back with a bang for the fiftieth pulse-pounding episode. Will Eric's web of treachery and deceit enslave the gang or will Zack's quick-thinking and scam-mongering see them through their most arduous quest? What DID Rob and Conall make of X-Men Apocalypse? Was Lisa so wrong for going on a date with Eric in exchange for all-important MC Hammer tickets? Is this Lark Voorhies' greatest performance as an actor? All these questions and more, answered in this special anniversary episode. NOTE: The episode isn't that special, we forgot we reached 50 episodes.
The Slavers' podcasting prowess is tested by the mysterious, elusive, possibly fictional criminal mastermind Joseph Smith. The Bayside Gang's trademark repugnance is Christ-like in comparison with ERIC, the dread vampire who preys on the good name of students. The sound quality is hodge podge and Rob and Conall are on edge. Is anyone safe?
