SBTB 03.08 - My Boyfriend's Back

In case you were wondering, the KLF300B3 was totally real. It was an ATV model made by Kawasaki in 1990. This is an instance in which product placement didn't hit the viewer over the head.

I normally like to harp on the poor production quality of Saved by the Bell, but these Malibu Sands episodes are pretty well done. The writing is fun and there are no booms in the shots. (Yet.) So, I'll tell you about Craig Strand and we'll call it a day.

Craig Strand! Wow.
Benjamin King
Craig Strand is played by Benjamin King. Homeboy is the perennial eastern citizen: Rich in Boston and a frat boy at Yale. Tall. Good looking. Stuck up. (Yup, that's how we westerners look at you loafer-wearing easterners.) Benjamin King has a laundry list of appearances in shows and movies, but his most notable(?) gig - at least his longest television job - has come recently on "Liv and Maddie," a Disney show about twin girls, one a pop star and the other a jock. So good job, Benjamin King. You could be the next Miley Cyrus, sans wrecking ball.
