The four greatest podcasters ever have done it again!
I thought it couldn't get any better than Saved by the Bell reviewed. I was wrong. This podcast is the pinnacle of human achievement! I am humbled in its presence.
Glad to see the hilarious hosts of Saved by the Bell Reviewed continue to put out content. SBTB reviewed is one of my favorite and funniest podcasts ever. If you are a 80's or 90's kid and grew up on cheesy sitcoms, this is for you. But what separates this podcast from boring TV reviewed podcasts is the raunchy brand of humor. If you enjoy jokes about licking buttholes, this is the podcast for you. Its only fitting that their first episode is the Child Molester Different Strokes episode.
This is the greatest TV podcast
I love the trope of "very special episodes," and this podcast covers them so amusingly. The hosts all make great points and even greater jokes. I learn and laugh, so you know I love it too!
