Saved by the Bell (4 seasons, 1989-1992)Hayley Mills (Miss Bliss), Max Battimo (Mikey Gonzalez), Heather Hopper (Nikki Coleman), T.K. Carter (Mylo Williams), Joan Ryan (Miss Tina Paladrino)Last seen: Before Saved by the Bell even began.What “happened”: If you ever catch a rerun of Saved by the Bell one Saturday morning, you might stumble on a show that seems wildly different from the one you know. Zack isn’t really the main character; there’s more focus on Miss Bliss, his put-upon teacher — except that Miss Bliss never appears in Saved by the Bell. While SBTB takes place in Bayside High School, California, the Miss Bliss season — which was actually created as a completely different show — takes place in John F. Kennedy Junior High in Indianapolis, Indiana.What happened: Welcome to Good Morning, Miss Bliss, the 1988, 13-episode Disney Channel show that preceded the series you know and love. When NBC picked up the rights to Miss Bliss, the show … [Read more...] about What Happens When Actors Leave High-School-TV Shows?

Linda Robson In May, Ruth Langsford was joined by Jane Moore and Linda Robson in the Loose Women studio after ITV brought back the popular TV show. The three panellists discussed DIY lockdown haircuts with Jane struggling to control her fringe. Unaware, Linda offered to lend her a helping hand but Ruth was forced to step in and stop her. "I'll tell you what's quite difficult, holding the mirror with one hand," remarked Jane. To which, Linda offered: "Shall I hold the mirror for you?"

“I stopped watching Once Upon a Time when no one seemed creeped out by the fact that hot Pinocchio, who had been asking Emma out on dates last season, was suddenly de-aged into a little boy to be Emma’s son’s playmate. Gah. And when some random character killed Pinocchio with a taser, and apparently no one at ABC — not even the interns — stopped to say before airing the episode, ‘Hey, does electricity work on wood?’” —Commenter Aravis … [Read more...] about Vulture Readers on What TV Shows They Divorced
I find zero joy in humiliation, so audition rounds for Idol or So You Think You Can Dance make me heartsick. I like when people are good at things, and I love that these shows depict how hard it is to be great at something. Most of these people are really good — but a handful of them are better, and that battle between good and great is so much more engrossing than the arbitrary shrieking on, say, Big Brother. So keep your lifestyle reality shows. If I never see another Real Housewife, it will be too soon. I don’t want to vote anyone off, I don’t want to watch alliances form, and I do not care who had the fanciest wedding or flipped the shittiest houses.

Consider this your classic accidental-spy sitcom in the same vein as NBC’s Chuck. The protagonist, an affable but unmotivated computer store employee, decides to quit his job to pursue new opportunities to better support his son and divorced wife. But when he discovers the standard “computing exam” given to him at a job center was actually an exam for MI-5, the chaps at the secret agency are so chuffed that they decide to keep him around for spy activities. Realistic? Nah. But positively delightful? Obviously! … [Read more...] about The Best British Spy Shows to Stream Right Now
