Episode #1 - NBC's 1989 Saturday Morning Preview!

Zach and the Saved by the Bell gang get sucked into their TV and have to find a way out before the school dean marks them tardy. Aired only once on September 13, 1989, this TV special was created to promote NBC’s Saturday morning lineup. Listen as Zachariah and the Network Special gang (Nathan) rundown the incredibly thin plot and discuss some of the shows that ran every weekend during the 89-90 television season.
