  • Drama at Bayside.

    This episode was pretty dramatic for an election episode, Jessie breaks down when she doesn't win the election, and after Zack & Jessie have a heart to heart, before all that it is full of laughs, when Zack just joins the election for a trip to Washington & he is winning! But when the trip was canceled, now Zack wants to lose, and Jessie stoops as low as can be as she acts like an airhead. Belding working out in the Boys Locker Room was hilarious, what Principal would do that!? Anyways a great plot, Tearjerker in the end. Amazing episode. Kelly was also especially funny in this episode.moreless
  • zack and jesse go head to head when they both try to become class president and zack at first does it for one reason but then really gets into it

    if you have never seen this ep or have never really seen the show or know the characters that well then i didnt really want it to be too revealing in the summary b/c u dont really know zacks character but of course this ep like most of the prior eps shows his personality..spoiler..zack of course wants to win the presidency so he can go on the trip but surprisingly (since were not used to seeing him do this) he goes on even after the trip is cancelled which shows a good change in his character and i was semi-impressed in himmoreless

    These are one of these episodes that involve Zack regretting one of his schemes, and also contains helping friends. These are one of these heart warming episodes from Saved By The Bell that aren't the best episodes, but can have it's own category in the hearts of the Saved By The Bell audience and TV watching or what ever community. I enjoyed this episode, and I also found it hilarious. When I just said hilarious, I meant hilarious! Really. I love how this episode brings schemes and helping friends together.



    Zack is running for school election after finding out that the winners of the school presidential election will win a trip to Washington. After Mr. Belding finds out that Zack was only running for the election, he lies and say that he cancelled the trip. Zack is now forced to run in order to convince the principal that he was not running only for the trip. Well, after winning by one vote, he finds out that the trip was not cancelled, but feels sorry for Jessie.



    This episode has potential, but it shouldn't be watched as a first impression for the series since the series isn't all laughs and sadness, it's mostly laughs.moreless
