I rolled my eyes hard when I first heard the news that 1980s/1990s staple Saved by the Bell was coming back with new episodes on Peacock. Did we really need another nostalgia-driven rehash of a show from another generation?

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm hasn’t even been out for an entire week, and it’s already been making waves in a variety of ways. Obviously, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has felt the biggest impact from the mockumentary sequel, but since he’s Donald Trump‘s lawyer, the increasingly unstable president has been inundated with questions about the scandal in question.
