Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story aired Monday night, and the Internet had a great many thoughts on it. While one prominent figure associated with the show publicly stated she wouldn’t be watching it, most of the rest of us couldn’t tear our eyes away.
Here are some of the best reactions, loosely grouped by subject and vociferousness.
Teen Wolf star Dylan Sprayberry was impressed with at least one of the film’s performances.

Apparently the film’s wardrobe didn’t pass muster for a few Tweeters.
hard to believe this movie is set in the early 90s. this looks like an urban outfitters look book #unauthorizedsavedbythebellstory

Pretty sure the wardrobe they are wearing on the #unauthorizedsavedbythebellstory Is currently being sold at Forever 21

Naturally, there were some arguments over how much the film’s cast resembled the original show’s actors.

Charges of historical revisionism were levied
Screech did NOT invent “That’s what she said” and I don’t appreciate your lies #Unauthorized

and plot points were debated.
Is this vest/flask guy like Screech’s Tyler Durden? #Unauthorized

Performances were critiqued
I didn’t really feel the passion on the “I’m so excited” scene. Fail. #UnauthorizedSavedByTheBellStory

and we all learned something about Gilbert Gottfried.
I was in the TV movie “Saved By The Bell” where Zack and Kelly get married in Vegas. Impressed? #UnauthorizedSavedByTheBellStory

Ultimately, even people who weren’t watching the film had something to say about it.

And while a few relationships are now a little worse for wear
The bf just turned off #UnauthorizedSavedByTheBellStory so yeah, I guess you could say I’m single.

Saved by the Bell remains eternal.
“Saved By The Bell won’t last forever.” Falser words have never been spoken #UnauthorizedSavedByTheBellStory
