“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” had a memorable stopover in Los Angeles so far. They remade “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” intro, had Neil Young perform as himself, but surely from the looks of it, saved the best for the last. In what seems to be a recap episode brewing inside Fallon mind, the audience sees him getting a bit too nostalgic during his Bayside High School days along with his friends two-thirds of the original cast from “Saved by the Bell.”
It all starts when Fallon is suddenly found strutting down the steps of “Saved by the Bell” sets through a flashback. Fallon sported a nerdy look and then in the frame entered Mark-Paul Gosselaar who played the bleach-blond hero Zack Morris. Suddenly the fans realize what to expect. The cast members start appearing one by one in a time-specific costume, and they still managed to look great despite the 25-year hiatus since the show first premiered. Came in first was Mario Lopez as A. C. Slater, Elizabeth Berkeley as Jessie Spano and a pregnant Tiffani Theissan as Kelly Kapowski, who dawned an original Bayside cheerleader outfit. Mr. Belding, the principal, stopped by for a while.
The segment was equally funny just like an original episode of ”Saved by the Bell.”
“Who are you taking to prom preppies?” Slater questions Fallon and Morris with his cool dude swagger.
Later, one sees Slater suddenly bursting into a ballet, and Spano doing a speed-crazed meltdown singing, “I Am So Excited.” These trademarks of the show were carried on further by Morris’s trademark “Time Out” when Kapowski says she is pregnant. This little Bayside affair ends with a sing along of Zack Attack’s “Friends Forever.”
Moreover, there were also posters like “No Hope with Dope” and “Save the Max,” which were similar to the posters in the original “Saved by the Bell” series.
