I never got into the whole Saved by the Bell thing even though I was of high-school age in the early 1990s. Jimmy Fallon, who is also of that age, has lately been drawing attention for his new TV talk show by trying to get the cast back together for a reunion, to which Mark-Paul Gosselaar already said yes.
Yesterday, though, Tiffani Thiessen squelched the idea with this terrific video, and for the first time in my life, I find her interesting. Who knew she was both a NASA engineer and the lead singer in an Indigo Girls tribute band? (“Plus, several times a week I sit by my pool and look hot.”) Seriously, though, we should be grateful that there won’t be a reunion. She just saved us from Dustin Diamond acting like a douche.
Now we need to hear from Elizabeth Berkley.
