Did You Know “Saved By The Bell” Is Still On TV?

Since I work late at night I tend to stay up WAY beyond what is generally considered normal, or even acceptable hours.  This past Saturday I was lying in bed with a case of insomnia, flipping through the guide on my TV, when I stumbled upon a great find: “Saved by the Bell” on TBS.  Now I have a terrible habit of watching whatever show or movie is on in it’s entirety and not falling asleep, unless it’s something I’ve already seen before.  As soon as I saw “S B the B” I knew it was the perfect thing to put on because I’ve seen them all, probably several times each.  I ended up dozing off about two-thirds of the way through the episode.  It was after Zack had come up with his crazy scheme, and sometime during the process of the rest of the gang figuring it out, but before they had decided to get him back by “teaching him a lesson he’ll never forget” (I really hope most people reading this got that joke just now, because I think it was a pretty damn good line).

I’d thought TBS had stopped airing the show’s reruns a long time ago, but I checked their website and discovered that Zack, Screech, Slater, Kelly, Jessie, and Lisa are still on TV every Sunday morning; 4 episodes in a row from 6-8 am.  I just set my DVR to “record series” in order to make sure I have a bunch on file for next time I need some quality television to fall asleep to.
