I like to think of my memory as a room with loose papers being blown around by a giant fan. When I try to remember something, I start grabbing the papers until I have the ones I want... but sometimes I miss a few :-b

Any, that was the greatest show of my generation despite how unbelievably horrible it was. And I'll never forget it was called The Max(x) (now that I'm thinking about it, didn't it have two x's?)

While impressed with Cu's recollection, I have to ask:

What on earth did that have to do with this thread? :-S

The show is still on TBS at the buttcrack of dawn. I watched one the other morning. It was the season they worked at Malibu Sands and Zack had a thing for Stacey Carosi, played by Leah Remini.

My perception was that Saved by the Bell was full of stereotypes. Not really the mean and nasty stereotypes we think of, but stereotypes nonetheless. The blonde-haired preppy in sweater vests, the awkward bookworm, the sexually ambiguous jock, the snooty rich girl, the hot chick, the pre-pubescent dweeb. Even the meddling principle. Saved by the Bell laid the foundation for the characters of high-school comedies and dramas for years to come.

And it was good, clean fun so why not? :*)

Oh yeah, I almost forgot Lisa was black.

The token black character will always be around for one reason or another, although I think Slater introduced the "token Hispanic guy."

Little known fact....AC Slater's full name is Albert Clifford Slater.

The best old show for stereotypes was Barney Miller.

Wojciehowicz was the big dumb Polish cop.
Harris was the lazy but very cool and stylish black cop.
Yamana was the Japanese cop who was smart but ate weird food and had strange customs.
Fish was the Jewish cop who complained all the time.
Dietrich the very cold logical German cop.

I loved that show. Sometimes out of nowhere the theme song starts playing in my head.
