I think that the 1980s television show Saved by the Bell bears a lot of the blame for why the country is in such sad shape there days, and why the Millenials are the way they are.
Think about it. Saved by the Bell ran from August 1989 through May 1993, which means that it influenced the early Millenials at the most gullible, vulnerable time of their lives. * It was bound to shape the thinking and values of a generation
The show revolved around Zack Morris, the smuggest, sleaziest, most irritating character on television, except of course for David Spade. When you look at his crooked schemes and exploitive behavior, it’s like watching the early years of Martin Shrkeli, aka The Pharmadouche.
Some role model for innocent kids!
Fortunately, Funny Or Die has come to the rescue, debunking the show and its repugnant central character with a series of videos containing a detailed analysis of each episode of Saved by the Bell. The video above is just one example. You can find the rest at Zack Morris Is Trash
*And, as if that wasn’t enough to cause permanent mental scarring, Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990 – 2000) was lurking just around the corner, like a predator hanging around a Middle School playground.
