‘Saved by the Bell’ Trailer: This Reboot is Taking the ’21 Jump Street’ Approach

I rolled my eyes hard when I first heard the news that 1980s/1990s staple Saved by the Bell was coming back with new episodes on Peacock. Did we really need another nostalgia-driven rehash of a show from another generation? But after watching this new trailer, I’m surprised to find that I’ve warmed considerably to the concept. The reason? The trailer seems to indicate that the meta approach seen in the first teaser is not merely a couple of cute, winky jokes sprinkled throughout the series, but...

Certain purists have been a tougher sell on Jones’ act, including, in 1969, Neil Young, who joined Jones onstage once, and only once, on the This is Tom Jones show and immediately regretted it. But who cares about Neil Young’s cranky dislike of commercial television...
