Go Bayside is a podcast wherein comedian April Richardson and a weekly guest watch every Saved By the Bell episode and discuss/critique them. She's almost done with the over 80 episodes (not including the larval form Good Morning, Miss Bliss or the College Years sequel), but you should probably start from the beginning.

If you want to watch along with them, all episodes of Saved By the Bell are available on Netflix, and many of them are also on YouTube.

Apey is great and I love her podcast. Check out the episodes featuring Paul F Tompkins, Dave Shumka and Jimmy Pardo.

If you want to play the unofficial drinking game while listening to her podcast, try taking a drink every time she says "totally".

I downloaded just the Paul F. Tompkins episodes and wound up listening to every goddamn one she's done. I remember all those episodes by heart too.

The twelve-year-old version of me now feels very vindicated for his absolute OBSESSION with this show. Even going so far as to sing the theme song to make sure shampooing went on for the appropriate amount of time. Yes, this day has brightened quite a bit.

These are exactly the three who I came in to recommend. They're three of the most charismatic podcasters.

Was that a thing, or just your thing?

Also there is an episode featuring Tony Visconti (yes, the Bowie collaborator) that is...fascinating. (so i've heard. GF is a big fan of this podcast)

No, no you shouldn't start from the beginning.

My brain is warring between 'this is beyond masochism' and remembering having a crush on Gosselaar.

I downloaded one episode on a lark a few months ago and was instantly hooked. What makes the show great is the combination of April's love for SBTB and her hatred for it. If she veered too far in one direction or the other, it would stop being interesting.

I really enjoy this podcast. Her laugh is infectious and even though some shows are 1 hour+ it doesn't drag on. I also think another drinking game could be centered around her saying "bare mins."

The only one that disappointed was the one with Justin Warfield. I thought it'd be great: have a former extra on to talk about things. But it mostly boiled down to Justin just name dropping / location dropping with hints of "I was / am so much cooler than the cast."
