How would you feel if you sat down and watched a 30-years-younger version of yourself at work?
Try keeping that in mind as you watch Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez – Saved By the Bell‘s Jessie Spano and A.C. Slater, respectively – witness their younger selves at work in select scenes from the ’90s series. It’s a cute little Zoom reunion-style moment that’s weaponized here as a Peacock ad.
NBC’s Peacock streaming service is up and running, and Saved By the Bell is one of the items in its vast catalog that is primed for a summertime binge. The 1990s TV series about high school life is filled with exactly the kind of cringe-worthy fashion and dated teaching moments that a student of pop culture history could ask for.
Berkley and Lopez cringe hard, repeatedly, and it is an absolute delight.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
