The Zack Attack came back!

Let me put this simply: This is the greatest TV segment in the history of recorded time!

Not only did Mark-Paul Gosselaar appear on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" last night, as promised, he came out as Zack Morris from "Saved By The Bell," and conducted the entire interview (and more!) as Zack. It was absolutely amazing!

Zack talked on "the brick" cell phone. He talked to the camera, and called "Timeout!" a few times. He even reunited The Zack Attack and performed "Friends Forever."

And, as if Zack signing on for Jimmy's "SBTB" reunion wasn't enough, he even got his neighbor to do the same, leaving Dustin Diamond and that cutie Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (though she's since dropped the "-Amber" part) as the only ones who haven't agreed to the "class reunion." Let's guess, who's going to be the next one to sign on: Samuel "Screech" Power or Kelly Kapowski? Place your bets...

It was amazing watching worlds collide, as I've been a "SBTB" fan since the show started on NBC 20 years ago, and I've also been a Jimmy Fallon fan since he started on "Saturday Night Live." (You know we met Jimmy, right?)

Last night's segment has inspired me so that I've donned my official Bayside Tigers T-shirt; I'll wear it all day! I don't even mind sharing that I've got every season of the original "SBTB" series on DVD (but not that horrible "The New Class" stuff that followed when Zack & the gang graduated from Bayside), even the entire series of "Saved By The Bell: The College Years," which was an odd title, considering it only lasted one year. You might have read I met Dustin Diamond a few years back, and I even got a direct message from Dennis Haskins (yes, Mr. Belding himself) on Twitter over the weekend!

Needless to say, my head is about to explode with all this "SBTB" excitement to start my day. Hopefully I'll be able to make it into work on time. But if not, it's alright 'cause I'm "Saved By The Bell!"
