“I’m So Excited!…I’m So Scared!

Thank you to the handful of Slog tippers who wrote over the weekend to make sure that I heard about thisóBravo’s forthcoming dance-competition reality show, hosted by the one and only Elizabeth Berkley.

The subject line expresses my feelings perfectly, and was inspired, of course, by this classic Berkley moment.

Wow, she looks good without the poodledog do from Showgirls. Miss the pout, though.

The emotions and quality of acting in that scene are only out done by the Zack and Kelly breakup.

I also like that Jessi brings up her "caffeine pill addiction" when the gang makes an anti-drug commercial.

Does it show that I grew up in the suburbs with very few friends?

This has to be one of the greatest moments in the history of television.

'saved by the bell' was way ahead of it's time, demonstrating the dangers of the gateway drug, caffeine. no one before or since has touched the subject. reason #4,593 why it's the best show on television starring elizabeth berkley.

Hot Sundae used to be great, really about the music. Then they sold out.

@12

No, but TV executives should be ashamed they put it on the air.

I knew the reference point of that line before I even glanced at what the post was about. I think that episode was some kind of touchstone for my generation - a vast majority of my friends can quote that scene nearly word-for-word. Definitely falls into the "so bad it's GREAT" category.

@10, 12, 14: i didn't watch that show - at 44, i am NOT in your generation.

i pray you are under 30.

@15

Obviously I wasn't fucking talking about you.

By "we" I meant people my age (e.g. mid twenties)
