We were SO excited to be joined this week by author Matt Pais, who wrote the book Zack Morris Lied 329 Times! to talk about the classic Saved by the Bell! Was Zack Morris the worst? Why do we fondly remember Zack & Kelly? Were Jessie and Slater the better Bayside couple? Did Tori even exist? Why didn’t Lisa ever get a boyfriend? We’re answering these questions and also breaking down a few of Zack’s many lies, talking about some of our favorite episodes, and more!
