From Team Tiger Mountain comes 28 Day Slater, a series where every Febuary Mario Lopez of Saved By The Bell fame turns into his character from the show, A.C. Slater.

Also, that last link (A.C. Slater) is not an official bio, but a fansite that probably deserves its own FPP in all its weirdness.

And I've been listening to too much Brian Eno recently. The creators are Team Tiger Awesome, not Team Tiger Mountain.

So, um, Mario Lopez stars in a short video, where he's Mario Lopez who can't let go of a character he played a decade ago. But, in real life, he's doing exactly that.

This makes my head hurt.

see "Dustin "Screech" Diamond" or not. Probably best you don't really do that actually.

I've always wondered what exactly the bell saved them from.

I know a lot of people like this. Most of them actually.

You guys, uh, you do know that the actor portraying Mario Lopez isn't actually Mario Lopez, right?

Yeah, I only realized that after the end credits of the final episode. Not as funny after that.

Mario Lopez's spookiest real life performance has to be as the Pablo, the latino romance interest to a high schooler in "Popular" a few years ago. This would have been when he was almost 30 years old.

No, I'm not a fan of Mario Lopez or of Popular. It's just that a few days ago I saw the trail end of a rerun (American shows from a few years ago are huge in Egypt) of Popular, and saw some guy approaching this high school chick and speaking broken English, and I thought, "Woah. Isn't that Mario Lopez? Isn't he, like, 30?" Sure enough, it was. IMDb confirms it.

Maybe, but any "Saved By the Bell" discussion definitely must include a reference to this.

Is it my imagination or was the receptionist in episode one a little hostile.

Swearing NOT EQUAL Funny.
