Saved by the Bell

Tom takes Morgan back to the good old days (the early ’90s), as the boys channel their inner Zack Morris (well, Screech) and look at the history of teen comedy Saved by the Bell.

They remember the various famous theme tunes, how its creator didn’t know what he wanted, why Zack was a bit of a dick and why The New Class went on far too long. Justice for The College Years!

Starting life as Good Morning Miss Bliss, the show was retooled with some of the characters including Zack Morris and Screech returning, becoming the new series Saved by the Bell.

Airing for four seasons from 1989 to 1993, the show followed a group of high school students at Bayside High School. It became a Saturday morning staple for kids in the US and UK in the early 1990s.

It then spawned a series of spinoffs and sequels, including 2020’s reboot which also brings back several of the same characters.

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
