Just when I didn't think I could like Jimmy Fallon more than I already do, he somehow managed to get the cast of Saved By the Bell together for a small reunion. I think the whole 30-40 something year old world has seen it by now, but just in case you haven't, take a look here:
Now tell me you weren't smiling the entire time. You were , weren't you? So funny. So clever. This video got 19 million views in the first day. That doesn't suprise me one bit. Here are my random thoughts:
1- How come these people don't age? They could all still pass for their teenage characters. Either they have an excellent makeup team or they are very friendly with botulinum toxin.
2- Why does Mark Paul Gosselar (sp?) look so awkward? I'm telling myself it's because he's trying not to laugh. There are definitely a few times where it seemed it like they were all having a very hard time keeping it together. But Zack Morris looked super nervous to me. It was a little like pulling teeth wasn't it?
3- On the flip side, Mario Lopez IS A.C. Slater. Isn't he? He felt the most effortless to me. Like he just picked up where the show left off. I can't decide if it's because that's his personality of if he's just that good of an actor.
4- I love these characters!! This little bit just made me want to watch all the seasons all over again. What a great show.
5- I really do enjoy Jimmy Fallon. I love that he's always game for a good time and I find him extremely talented. He's kind of a jack of all trades, isn't he? I love how good he's become at making people laugh. And I love how he's truly changed television for the better (ahem, kardashians).
Such a fun time. Like many of you, I grew up on Saved by the Bell. I watched all the seasons, including the college season and I was ridicously happy when Zack and Kelly finally got married.
Thanks Jimmy Fallon. This was awesome.
