We thought we’d have a weekly feature to give our customers a little background about some of our employees, partners, and clients. Check back every Thursday to get to know the COPYCATS Media family a little better.
This week features Jeremy Hagen, who works in the art/prepress department and is our resident Saved By The Bell expert/enthusiast. He is going to rate each question after he answers it and let us know whether he liked it or not.
What is your favorite Zack Morris scam, and how would you have changed the details of this scam so you would have gotten away with it?
When a show like SBTB enters ones life you cannot pinpoint just one scam. I mean, they are all gems but here is a good one:
The episode where Screech gets his first zit and names him Murray. In chemistry class he makes a mistake and his experiment explodes in his face. The next day he is upset because the zit is gone. So Zack comes up with the idea of selling the stuff, but he first does a test on Craterface Coburn to show the entire school that it works and eventually starts to sell Zit Off.
Later on, Kelly is freaking out because she has a zit on her nose, so Zack gives her some Zit Off, she uses it, and the zit goes away. Screech then realizes there is a side effect: the cream turns whatever it touched maroon. So now Kelly’s face is maroon and she is freaking out even more. But the genius that is Zack Morris convinces everyone that the reason her face is maroon is because she has so much school spirit. Of course, later on she wins homecoming and everyone is happy the end. Another bit of amazingness from this episode is that Mr. Belding caught Zack selling Zit Off and told him to cease sales, but Zack promised to name it Beldasil.
So, yeah, I wouldn’t change anything Zack did. He’s a genius and can do no wrong in my eyes.
Rating: GO BAYSIDE!
Forget comparing yourself to a favorite character. Let’s say you had the opportunity write yourself into the Saved By The Bell series; what would your character be like? What would he wear? Who would he hang out with? Where would he sit on the high school hierarchy of popularity? What late 80’s-early 90’s high school stereotype would you embody?
I personally am very offended that you would have the nerve to ask me such a question. I mean, SBTB is pure genius and nothing needs to be changed. I don’t want to think about me being a character or anyone else for that matter.
This question gets a huge VALLEY.
How do you explain the Tori Paradox?
The bigger question here is how do you explain that Tori Spelling who played Violet Bickerstaff (Screech’s love interest) didn’t go on to become one of America’s favorite actresses of all time. I mean with SBTB on her resume you would think she would have the opportunity to do some great movies (although everyone should go and watch Sol Goode, trust me).
This one was kind of weak, but of course I turned it around to make it amazing, so this one gets a HOT SUNDAE!
Well, what about 90210?
90210 was OK, but it was more about Brandon, Brenda and Dylan. Donna doesn’t hold any water in my book when it comes to that crappy show. In fact, 90210 didn’t even cross my mind. That just shows you how much the show sucked.
What famous guest star would you have liked to remain on the show as a regular?
Nobody really. Although the guy that played Johnny Dakota was a real cool guy. I enjoyed his character, but he turned out to be a loser.
THERE’S NO HOPE WITH DOPE.
What important life lessons have you learned from this show that you still carry today?
I’m not going to answer this one, because whatever I have taken from SBTB over the years is very special to me and…….*eyes start watering* I can’t finish. I need to leave now.
