“It’s like Gilligan’s Island… I’ve heard about it, but I’ve never seen it.”
What show would you guess this teen is talking about—M.A.S.H.? I Love Lucy? Nope. It’s Saved by the Bell.
As part of their popular “Teens React” series, YouTube users The Fine Bros collected together some teens (including Game of Thrones‘s Maisie Williams) and previewed some highlights from the classic ’90s teen comedy (well, at least one of them thinks it’s from the ’80s).
Most of the teens (including Williams) had never seen Saved by the Bell before, but that didn’t stop them from having opinions. Most agreed that Kelly Kapowski would still be a teen idol, and that they’d choose Zack over Slater.
The Fine Bros also had their viewers react to two specific episodes of the show: The one in which Kelly accidentally dyes her face maroon with zit cream but wins homecoming queen (which Williams determined to be unrealistic—”everyone is horrible, no one would vote her if she had a maroon face…”) and another in which Jessie has her infamous caffeine-pill freakout, which the teens found oddly moving. Teens these days, with their thoughtful reactions to things.
