OK, so half of today’s post will officially be the final installment of a supposed 3-part series looking into why Jimmy Fallon’s Saved by the Bell reunion idea will fail. Part 1 and 2 were depressing, seeing childhood heroes in shambles.
Since the last post, Lark Voorhies officially committed to the idea, but I figured that would happen. The final two cast members to weigh in on are Tiffany-Amber Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski) and Elizabeth Berkley (Jessica Myrtle “Jessie” Spano). I will quickly fill you in as to why they won’t (probably) agree to appear.
Thiessen is going to have a full schedule this summer, as a sleazy photographer convinced her to go to Paris for the summer. This seemed an odd move for an established actress, but the guy was really convincing and even shamed her boyfriend into supporting the idea.
Berkley, on the other hand, may actually want to be part of the reunion, but will definitely oversleep and miss the event. Rumors around Tinsletown have Elizabeth again popping caffeine pills and staying awake for days, only to crash and throw tizzy fits about not having “enough time”.
In the absence of these two, a random butch chick in a leather jacket may suffice as a stand-in (and then mysteriously disappear if Tiffany and Elizabeth show up for the last several minutes of the show).
Alrighty, enough SBTB.
