Screech, Slater, and Zack have all graduated from Bayside.  What's up next for the recent grads?  College, of course.  They're up to their usual mischief with the occasional familiar face and some new faces.  And most importantly, Bob Golic.

Our second part of an interconnected trilogy of episodes. This edition of the It Was a Thing on TV Remastered series goes back to Episode 15 as we look at CBS' attempt to get in on that sweet Love Boat action with the comedy "Flying High"

Featuring Connie Selleca, Pat Klous and someone who had a great layover with Bobby Sherman according to the commercials for the Star Wars Holiday Special.

The new TV season is nearby.  One of our favorite shows back in the day was the Saturday morning cartoon preview show that generally aired the night before the premiere of the new fall Saturday morning lineups.  In 1985, CBS went all out, producing an hour-long show with Rowdy Roddy Piper and celebrities ranging from Pee Wee Herman to Herve Villechaize to Captain Lou Albano to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.  Who knew CBS' Saturday morning cartoons ran until 2 PM!

Episode 192–Domestic Life

A short-run show from 1984, Domestic Life involved a number of big stars including Steve Martin, Tom Hanks, and Martin Mull.  Some members of the media knew it was good, but it was just too late.  And it had Bob Ridgely!

Live Show 7–Money Plane

What started out as a joke in the pre-shows with Greg when he found out about this straight-to-DVD movie starring Kelsey Grammer and the WWE's Adam "Edge" Copeland turned into an obsession when we saw a recent episode of Honest Trailers on YouTube about the plot of this film.

Now, we present to you a special Live Show about this movie brought to you by the youngest Lawrence brother (WHOA!)

Two warnings for this episode.

1. Lots of language throughout the course of this episode.

2. Tons and tons of (tense dramatic music).

If you thought a high schooler couldn't also double as a secret agent trying to find his father, you don't know Beans.  Come for the Beans, stay for the plethora of references to HBO's Encyclopedia Brown from the early 90s and the clip from Mac & Me.

We have honored TV celebrities in the past.  This episode, we pay tribute to an icon from the 80s and 90s, Larry "Bud" Melman.  Not only was he a comic foil on Letterman's shows, he had bit parts in other TV shows and movies, he was a writer, he was a spokesman, and he even had his own workout video...sort of.  Grab your Toast on a Stick and enjoy this installment of It Was a Thing on TV.

1995 was a tough time for baseball, in the middle of a strike and using replacement players in spring training.  Andy Richter lightened the mood by visiting the Mets in Port St. Lucie, FL, interviewing replacement players, informing people about the real St. Lucie, and visiting Butterfly World.

Also, we meet, the man, the myth, the legend, DIESEL!

Our tribute to Conan O'Brien continues with his rough and all too brief era hosting The Tonight Show back in 2009. We look at some of the memorible moments of this era of Conan from the Twitter Tracker to Shatner recites Palin to In The Year 3000.

All in all, Jeff Zucker did Conan real dirty, all because of a certain Mr. Black (Not THAT one, the OTHER one). You all know who we're talking about.
