* The sets are being released in full seasons BASED ON NBC's PRODUCTION NUMBERING SYSTEM. The episodes are presented not in chronological order, but in the order NBC had numbered them.
I hope this clears up any confusion. There have always been questions about how the Saved by the Bell seasons actually are broken down, because of the show's airing Saturday mornings instead of in a normal prime time schedule, and because of the "Malibu Sands" and "Tori Episodes" season divisions.
* There are, in fact, FIVE seasons of Saved by the Bell according to NBC records, and the seasons do not break down evenly with the years the gang is in high school. For example, there are episodes that take place in the 10th grade, or second year of high school, that were not actually aired until the THIRD season of the show. Because of this, NBC has numbered these episodes as being part of the third season. They were not 'missing' from the first DVD set, but rather considered under this system to be included in the DVD set for Seasons Three and Four. The decision to release the episodes according to this system also accounts for the 'jumping around' in continuity.
* Just know that Lion's Gate has been good enough to bring us Saved by the Bell on DVD. And the improved packaging and commentary overshadow the inconveinience of having the episodes presented 'out of order' in terms of chronology. And wait for a Season Five release before you get upset over 'missing episodes'
According to what NBC provided Lions Gate Entertainment, Seasons 3 and 4 are complete. What you might be wanting is Season 5. SBTB had 5 seasons. The order in which they are putting them on the DVD's is by air date. SBTB has been in syndication since it first began, so there are many different online episode guides to confuse you. The best episode guide to follow, that can give you an idea of how Lions Gate is putting them in order can be seen at this website, [...] (But ignore the way they have divided the seasons) I am sure they will be releasing the final season 5 on DVD next. (Which is senior year with "Tori" episodes and the final "Jessie/Kelly" episodes with the graduation, etc.)
Season 5 is expected for a June 2005 release.
Well how come "Video Yearbook" and "Snow White and the Seven Dorks" are missing, as well? Aren't they considered Season 3 and 4? Again, this goes back to the fact that Lions Gate is putting them in air date order. These 2 episodes didn't air until Season 5, along with the "Tori" episodes, according to the air date episode guide I provided you above.
I was hooked on Saved by the Bell when I was a kid, but I think every kid in the early 90s watching it. The first & second DVD set went by the syndication order and not the original airdate. The episode order in the season 3 & 4 is worse than the previous. Yes, Lionsgate once again went by the syndication order, but there are a few two part episodes that have another episode in between them. The episodes at the summer resort are randomly mixed in with the Bayside High episodes for discs 1-3. The continuity error doesn't bother me too much, but it could become a problem for any new fan of the series.
The series actually aired for four seasons, but the production filmed five different batches, aka five seasons.
The episodes are:
Disc One - The Famous Belding Boys; Breaking Up is Hard to Do; The Glee Club; The Last Dance; Zack's Birthday Party; The Aftermath
Disc Two - The Game; Operation Zack; Fourth of July; Wicked Stepbrother part 1; Wicked Stepbrother part 2; Check Your Mate
Disc Three - My Boyfriend's Back; Fake IDs; Boss Lady; Pipe Dreams; The Last Weekend; Date Auction; All in the Mall
Disc Four - S.A.T.Read more ›
