Mark-Paul Gosselaar Insults ‘Saved By the Bell’? — Leave Him Alone

It usually makes me extremely angry when actors insult the show that made them famous, but in the case of Mark-Paul Gosselaar, the outrage is misplaced. When Yahoo TV asked the Franklin & Bash star about the show, he said, “It’s not a great show. The writing is kind of hokey… it’s very much a piece of that time.” When the interview became public fans went nuts, insisting that the actor was ungrateful to his career-launching role. In response to the outcry, I have a few points. First, it wasn’t a great show, but we all loved it, and pointing out the writing is sub-par is not an outright insult. Second, Mark-Paul Gosselaar actually did one of the most hilarious skits ever on Jimmy Fallon as a tribute to the show, and he even participated in a cast-mate reunion with People Magazine. Those are not the actions of an ungrateful man. Watch the skit below and then lay-off this guy.
