    The New "Saved By The Bell" Reboot Seems Absolutely Bonkers But I Have To See It Anyway

    Here's what the new Saved By The Bell is about:

    When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality.

    Well...

    So far, Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley are confirmed to be on the show.

    We're still waiting to see if Mark Paul Gosselaar will play the problematic governor.
