    Saved by the Bell was the one show I remember watching practically every morning before I got ready for school. It has some fond memories and a whole lot of sentiment attached to it for me.

    It started as a family friendly series called Good Morning, Miss Bliss on the Disney Channel, a vehicle for former child star Hayley Mills, but it was axed after thirteen episodes. It was later retooled and revived as a Saturday morning NBC sitcom called Saved by the Bell. Only a handful of the characters from the original incarnation were brought over to the new version.

    I know this topic might seem a little kitschy or cheesy to some of you, but I felt it was time that I give my friends here on Soap Chat the chance to take a stab at this lovable little comedy.

    I loved it as did my best friend at school. It was addictive. All the characters were great.

    I loved Lisa and remember her being a fashion student later on. Think Jessie was my least favourite.

    To this day, nearly 30 years on, I still have no idea what a ‘preppy’ is, or why AC called Zach that.

    I dunno
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preppy

    But basically it's a slang for a kid whose got a upper/upper middle class background and the mannerisms, clothing, vocabulary etc to go with it, originally derived from private "prep" schooling for university/college that those classes usually gets for their children. Zach is very much "preppy" in that sense.

    Thanks @tommie - it's a term we wouldn't use here.

    Does anyone remember the rumour that the actor who played Zach had died??

    I was a bit older than the intended demographic but I remember it being on here on Saturday mornings for a while. It was a bit of harmless fun and some of the cast went on to bigger things.
