I am NOT a doctor…but I’m cooler than Johnny Dakota.

My girlfriend, Katie and I recently spent an amazing week in California and it was chalk-full of sunshine, surfing, and… Saved By The Bell??? SBTB was one of my favorite shows as a teenager…heck, it still is! I even enjoyed the 5th season (horrible continuity and all) and the College Years. I did not however, buy into the ‘New Class’ business.

Anyways, the first day in town we attended a taping of the (newly cancelled) George Lopez show. Imagine my surprise when I learned that ZACK FRIGGIN MORRIS (Mark Paul Gosselaar) would be among the featured guests!!!!

As the vacation came to an end, I was getting bummed. That came to a screeching halt and was reversed faster than a waist-lock against Nedic when I found out we were seeing a taping of Extra. Oh yeah, it’s hosted by Albert Clifford Slater (aka Mario Lopez). Granted, I wasn’t as Cra-C for A.C. but it was rad to see both of them in person (Mario looks crazy young, I am convinced he was frozen and buried deep within the earth until a job worthy enough for him became available.)

I wanted to share this with the readers of the Check Up, but how? Then it hit me: Zack and the gang covered many controversial issues in during their time as Bayside Tigers. So who better to handle this week’s talk about teenagers dealing with underage drinking as well as drugs?
