  • The real pilot episode.

    Well since all the episodes of Saved by The Bell are out of order, this was the real pilot episode. The beginning when Zack says "I'll never forget the day Slater showed up" was a voice over they put in since this aired in the middle of the season. This episode is Zack's first day of High school, So Bliss characters are in the show, but some aren't. Slater meets Zack, they both compete for Kelly, practically a formula for the whole first season set in hand. Zack's cleverness is revealed in this episode, a great intro to a great show.
  • zack and the gang enter high school and he hopes to win kelly's affection but has some competition with slater

    this ep was funny but in a way a chauvanistic ep that wasnt all that great to me but the plot was good and the characters were very good and did their parts well as well as staying very true to their characters..spoiler..zack and slater both have a thing for kelly and they were trying to beat each other to her when they both were going to ask her out..the way they did it was funny..i was upset that kelly went for slater..b/c im a huge kelly/zack fan..but that happens sometimes and i guess the writers know what theyre doing then

    This episode was not very good, and I will tell you why. Slater doesn't have a big role in this episode, but that is also not why. If you ever heard about Slater being in many schools for the last 3 years, you might want to know how Slater found the friends in the first place, and how now Slater and Zack are fighting for the gorgeous Kelly. Well, this episode will explain all. Here is the original first episode. It's not very great, but remember, this is the actual first episode. They were still working out the kinks in the actor and production.

    The humor might not be the best, but this episode worked out very well.
