Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind – ep10 – Saved by the Bell to the Max – S2E12 Saved by the Bell to the Max

    • TV Reviews

All you need to know about the competence of the federal government can be found in the season 2 episode of "Saved by the Bell" entitled "Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind." A government agent watches a crappy student film and is absolutely convinced Screech is an alien from another planet.



Don't get us wrong. Screech is the worst and definitely not a normal human kid. In fact, he may be a serial killer. But this government agent is a complete moron. One day he might become president.



The "To the Max" crew break down this somewhat frustrating episode, which starts out as a story about a broken camcorder and escalates to absolute nonsense. They discuss the different "kinds," the career priorities of Ed Alonzo's Max, the availability of Screech masks (proven to reduce the spread of coronavirus, btw), real life AV club vs. Bayside AV club, dangerous dentistry and Screech's desire to go to heaven alongside Zack, sans underwear. Maybe they should just let the idiot government agent dissect Screech. Also in this episode, co-host Angela loses her shit. She can't sanction Screech's buffoonery.

Fun fact: There's an episode of "That's So Raven" also called "Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind." We haven't seen it, but it's 99 percent guaranteed to be better.
