Because of relentless promotion of the new “Saved By The Bell” tabloid biopic, my daughter has not only requested to watch it (a soft ‘No’ at this point) but the original SBTB series (which, to my disappointment, kindly Auntie has allowed.)  Aside from a complicated explanation of how the Netflix ‘Season One’ is actually a different show entirely, and how that isn’t actually Rodrigo’s dad, I found great amusement at how much she goggled at early-90s fashions and hairstyles the same way I did with ‘Leave It To Beaver’ in my youth.  Interestingly, the most annoying side-effect was that I kind of want to see the movie that explains what happened behind the scenes, not only of this show, but of others, which leads to today’s totally radical query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) really wants to know about the hidden secrets of ‘You Can’t Do That On Television’, ’cause that Moose was a hottie, asking: Which TV program or movie would you be most interested in seeing a behind-the-scenes tell-all biopic?

    They have already made some great behind the scenes films of some of my favorites, such as Doctor Who, The Monkees and a really funny one about the Adam West Batman series. But I’d be very interested in something about the early days of Power Rangers, specifically such things as the rivalry of some of the actors as well as how David Yost was harassed by the crew for his sexual preference, but only if it is done tastefully and truthfully as possible, not in an over-the-top Lifetime movie style.

    I’d love to see one behind the scenes biopic of Married with Children, because it is a guilty pleasure show, and I’ve always wondered (taking Hollywood into account) what actor interaction was like.
