So, anyone see any real chemistry between Chelsea and Jett or Chelsea and Jeremy? No? I didn’t think so either.
Watching the beach scenes, I was struck by how it reminded me of a more extreme Saved by the Bell episode. I mean, even the actors look like their counterparts.
Jeremy=Zack: Okay, so he’s definitely a jerk. But remember, Zack was never supposed to be a nice guy. And in terms of looks, Jeremy really has the preppy blond hunk who has had his life served to him on a silver platter!
Jett=Slater: Both are muscle hunks, both have had military backgrounds (Slater was an army brat) and both even have ethnicity. He does appear nicer than Slater though (so far).
Stephanie=Kelly: In looks at least. Kelly was always a nice girl, so bitchyness that Stephanie is betraying really reminds me more of Brenda but I’ll save that if I start getting more of a 90210 vibe.
Chelsea=Jessi: Big no on the looks department, Chelsea represents Jessi because I always remember the snark the tall girl had (though that was with Slater rather than Zack) and Chelsea certainly acted like “the brain” with being suspicious of this company they were planning. I’m so proud of her, especially for talking about her guy, Nick and standing up to Jeremy!
Max=Screech: Okay, this might sound mean but this is the most obvious one to me. First, Max cutting out of work and showing up IMMEDIATELY is just something Screech would do. He’d drop anything whenever Zack called him. Then, and this is the part I feel slightly guilty, Max looked so scrawny next to the other guys, bless Darrin’s heart, I bet it hurt to wait weeks to be in an episode only to have to stand next to the latest eye candy. Lastly, Max investing just shows he is guillible, like Screech was always willing to do whatever Zack and Slater put him up to.
Why does no one notice Jeremy is a Horton? And seriously, Stephanie heads off to Dayton, hooks up with a guy who winds up being related to the OTHER core family in Salem? Meanwhile his best friend, in turn, is related to the only black minority family in Salem? :eyeroll: I mean, I normally agree with Hogan that bringing in new character they must show some connection to the current cast, but here was an excellent opportunity to bring in new characters who wouldn’t require them to check family histories to see if they could hook up!
