    Here is the cover provided to tvshowsondvd.com
    [​IMG]

    Elizabeth Berkley's head was cut off and replaced with Tori, Leanna Creel's face. She played Tori in 8 episodes. This is cleary seen in the following pictures. The SBTB community is up in arms about this. It's horrible. Apparently, someone knows Elizabeth Berkley, and forwarded the news to her...
    Gord, are there anyways to contact Lion's Gate? Ugh! I wish I could get to the bottom of this, but what do we expect? It is Lion's Gate...

    Here are the real photos:

    That makes me laugh for some reason. It does suck though.

    I thought something was amiss. I had a feeling the cover was photoshop'd. I can't help but laugh though, only because I can't believe Lion's Gate would stoop that low. to achieve the desired image. Although I don't buy sets based on what the cover looks like, I still think it's wrong to impose someone's face on another's body, especially if there was no permission to do so. It'll be interesting to see how this unfolds.........if it does.

    Okay, that's spooky. Right when I read Dave's post, Skeeter Davis's End of the World started on the radio. [​IMG]

    Carry on.

    I was looking at it and I was a little suspicious. The hair looks alright but the clothes were all wrong.

    How is Tori even in a cast photo with all the other members?

    I don't remember her ever being in a same episode with Kelly and Jessie. She didn't even make the Graduation.

    This is kind of silly though. The cover does stink though.

    They didn't really explain why Kelly or Jessie weren't there and how Torri suddenly disappeared. I wonder if they address that on this set in a featurette or something.

    Also... I thought there were only four seasons of Saved by the Bell... where did this fifth season come from?

    Jessie and Kelly appeared in 12. They left their contracts/show after those 12. NBC was signed on for 12 additional episodes. The original cast filmed the graduation, then without Jessie and Kelly, they brought in Tori and did 12 more episodes. They originally aired twice on Saturdays. The first episode with Jessie and Kelly, and the second episode with Tori... That's all we know from Peter Engel (Exec producer).

    I'm a nerd when it comes to SBTB.

    I'm kinda surprised this wasn't mentioned on TVShowsOnDVD.com...

    Maybe an update?

    And I very much prefer Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski) and Elizabeth Berkley (Jesse Spano) over Leanna Creel (Tori Scott). Thiessen and Berkley were two of the best reasons to watch that show. :b

    What scares me is that someone is actually outraged about a cover of Saved By the Bell.[​IMG]

    I could be wrong, (someone please correct me if so) but I believe Lions Gate also superimposed Dennis Haskins' (Mr Belding) face over that of former president of NBC, Brandon Tartikoff (sp) in a SBTB group photo included inside the season 3/4 set. I think that shot was taken during the production of the "No Hope with Dope" episode.

    Anyway, I hope that with this set, we finally get to finish our collections of the original SBTB series on DVD. (not counting Miss Bliss) I'm not sure about the Vegas movie, tho...

    John*P, you are correct, and that is also the case with this set.. Lion's Gate, better luck in Photoshop next time! [​IMG]

    I looked at the season 3/4 set and it didn't look like a scene from the "No Hope with Dope" episode.

    I find the whole concept of taking someones's head and placing it onto someone else's body to be very creepy. I realize that it's just photographs they're cutting up, but I don't know, it just conjurs some pretty disgusting images in my head. If I were a bigger fan of this show, I would be pissed at this, though.

    Andrew,
    LOVE your signature! [​IMG] I would have went with Give me OAR, or give me death! though. The word "widescreen" is too limiting and doesn't cover all of the compositional bases. Just a freindly observation, otherwise, hell yes! [​IMG]

    I agree with John on this one. Since you aren't going to get "Saved by the Bell" in widescreen, may I just proceed with the killing? [​IMG]

    How hard would it have been to just add her into the background so all 8 stars of the season could fit on the box?
