To be fair, pretty much no generation of teenagers thinks anything the previous generation did was cool. But still, we’d be lying if we said our hearts didn’t break a little as we watched Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams effectively give a “meh” to clips from Saved by the Bell.
With the show closing in on its 25th anniversary, the Teens React series had Williams and others watch selections from the iconic show. Their conclusions: the intro and clothes are very dated (agreed), Kelly Kapowski is hot in any era (agreed), Elizabeth Berkley kind of overacts (agreed), and I’m so excited/I’m so scared is a powerful life lesson (wait, what?).
The fact that the teens are all so shocked the show was popular is deeply saddening. Come on Arya! We thought you were perfect.
