The lads return after yet another sojourn to cover the modern Dean Cain classic 'Broadcasting Christmas' in their quest to watch and review one Dean Cain Christmas movie every year for the rest of their lives. Conall preferred the Dog, Rob actually thinks it's kind of good for weird reasons. The two debate the true meaning of what it means to be a Christmas movie and merriment ensues. Merry Happy everybody!
Slater joins the revolution, Zack wants to go skiiing and the campus is ruled by a grizzled one eyed Klingon.
Episode: "Slater's War"
Sororities and fraternities harvest a fresh crop of innocent youths. A certain time travelling super-villain is at the centre of it all!
Episode: "Rush Week"
Rob and Conall continue to be stunned by the alarming regularity of discussions of a sexual nature. The girls fall in love with a dreamy new professor. Zack uses an assignment as a way of hitting on girls and ends up having an existential crisis.
Rob and Conall record 60 minutes of silence and hastily try and retrace their steps in this callously thrown-together episode. Kelly returns and is an actual character now, Zack makes pop tarts while trying to have sex with people (because we live in a world where characters have sex now). Conall struggles with the basic lyrics of the theme tune, much to Rob's irritation.
The Slavers have landed in the world of tomorrow where the rules of the past no longer apply. Is this the same timeline? Have Zack's God powers been sapped by the harshness of campus life? Will Peter Engel ever find the missing tapes that explain what happened to Zack's scholarship to Yale? Some of these questions and many more answered!
Rob and Conall overcome the dragon of technical difficulties and bring their perilous journey roaring back to life as they cover the hallowed 'Graduation' episode. Where's Tory? What timeline are we in? What is Neal's real name?! The promise of the College Years is tantalisingly close as the lads visit the halls of Bayside with the original cast for the very last time.
In the run up to grand finale of the original Saved By The Bell, this week we release no fewer than TWO episodes of this podcast. In this quickie we take a look back through our time in Bayside and forward to the frosted-tipped dystopia of 2003!
Episode: "The Time Capsule"
To celebrate our amazing audio troubles we have decided to release a grand total of two episodes this week! Sitting in for Conall is the fantastic Saoirse Smith! This week the gang once again let music turn them against one another like ravenous wolves- it never takes much in Bayside!
Episode: "School Song"
Conall is the worse for wear and a lizard dies.
Another day, another mediocre clip show bafflingly inserted far later in the season than it has any right to. Rob and Conall use the opportunity to ponder memories of experiences past. Conall marvels at the quick wit of James Bond. PLUS: A look back at the halcyon days of Malibu Sands.
This week the show delivers pregnancy and the laboured threat of tectonic death.
Hippity Hop meets fairytales, and Big Dick The Bopper Belding giving unsolicited kisses. A grim but colourful week in Bayside High!
Episode: "Snow White And The Seven Dorks"
Conall and Rob continue drifting through a world where time has no meaning, friendship has no memory and justice has no champion - until now. Screech is given the hallowed task of becoming Bayside's new hall monitor, thanks to Zack's latest scam - which is all caused because they forget Screech's birthday. Conall and Rob forget to mention the coolest part of the episode - the RoboScreech fantasy sequence. Kevin the Robot returns. BONUS: Rob plugs his new 'Saved by the Bell' fanfic.
Peter Engel's clumsy assistant drops a tape once again (this time on purpose?) and Conall and Rob are unwittingly, unknowingly transported to the halcyon days of the Zelly and Slessie relationships, when the world was new and love was real. Unlike the watered down pest of the Tori Timeline, Zack is once again the machiavellian mastermind we loved to hate in the days of manipulated Beau Rivere tapes. All is right with the world, which just goes to show how warped a world Bayside really is.
The gang have a barn dance and it's meaningful and stuff probably.
Episode: "The Senior Prom"
The lads return after a lengthy sojourn, in the desperate hopes of rekindling their dwindling fanbase. Zack gets the hots for Slater's best girl. Mr Belding brings the alpha males of Bayside on a spiritual journey. Neal O'Neill makes a startling and beautiful existential discovery. Rob rants about Power Rangers for eight minutes.
To celebrate the second birthday of our podcast, we've left Saved By The Bell aside this week to focus on the magnificent low budget crapness that is Ireland's first attempt at making a white guy martial arts movie. Featuring '90s pop sensation Mikey Graham of Boyzone!
Movie: FATAL DEVIATION
The teachers strike, Mr Tuttle slags his own girth and much is made of the continued degradation of Screech's self-worth. Zack and Slater's manipulative scheme goes off without a hitch and the reap the selfish benefits. Conall and Rob despair for the world.
Zack engages in a war of the sexes after Zack and Slater are revealed as sexist monsters, much to the shock of the female student body of Bayside. Mr Belding mediates in the only way he knows how - by acting as umpire in an expensive-looking, needlessly elaborate contest. Screech continues to embarrass himself and falls further and further into the labyrinth of his own designed lunacy. Rob controversially debates Leanna Creel's ability to successfully portray a heterosexual teenager. Conall finds his notes at long last.
Valentine's Day this week for the Bell-Saved and Bell-Enslaved alike. The shallow facade of the Hallmark holiday is matched by the shallow face of network television; time for a clip show!
Episode: "Isn't it Romantic"
Zack tried to swindle, but gets out-swindled. Screech is forced to choose between insects and a non-existent relationship with Tori.
A lost lover from Slater's past turns up as Jessie throws some shade as well as some headlocks. Times are looking tough for all but Zack who plans to re-programme the Slaterbot to his own ends.
