Old School

I found this clip from the Jimmy Fallon show a few weeks ago from a link on Facebook. Mark-Paul Gosselar appeared on the show in character as Zack Morris from Saved By the Bell. I cracked up the first time I watched it, so I had to share.

I finally remembered to show it to Jeremy the other night, and it got me thinking about the old school shows we obsessed over growing up. Jeremy and I were (are?) Saved By the Bell fans, and we can both remember watching episode after episode after school and on Saturday mornings. We have without a doubt watched every episode of the high school years...I won't even go into the tragedy that was the attempt at the "college years." (We may or may not still turn on TBS in the morning at least once a week to get our Bayside fix.)

Another show I remember watching over and over again, particularly in the afternoon after school, was The Brady Bunch. I would get off the school bus, get a snack (honey bun and Dr. Pepper...my eating habits have not changed much!), call up my best friend Sarah, and settle in to watch 3 or 4 episodes of The Brady Bunch. I could also be found flipping over to Full House during commercial breaks.

My college years were marked by a hard-core devotion to the Golden Girls. I watched it most every morning, afternoon, and night back when it was on 20 or so times a day. There was a marathon on over Labor Day weekend...GG might have played on our tv for abou 12 hours or so. Is it bad that my favorite part of a sick day is watching reruns with my favorite old ladies?

I'm always looking for shows I might have missed, then watch the series on dvd (love me some Netflix!) What are your favorite old-school shows? Any I might have missed out on?


  1. I loved Saved by the Bell and Full house!! I still watch Full House, sick I know. I loved Family Ties also, and the one with Kirk Cameron..those were my favorite. :)

  2. I just got back from maternity leave and all summer I watched The Gilmore Girls every day. Love that show!

  3. So glad you left us a message. Your girls are adorable and I LOVE your names too!

  4. Family Ties and Growing Pains, yes!! I love those too. Gilmore Girls is definitely a favorite around here...I've got the whole series on DVD!
