Saturtainment: Name Your Adventure (1992)

In 1992, NBC went to an all-live-action Saturday morning lineup, producing virtually the entire lineup in house, most with the aid of producer Peter Engel, who already had the network's new flagship series, Saved By The Bell, which began its 4th season on the network. One of Bell's stars, Mario Lopez (now the host of the syndicated magazine series, Extra) was given his first taste of doing his own show, hosting Name Your Adventure, in which teens got the chance to fulfill their wildest dreams, which sometimes included meeting other NBC stars, such as Jonathan Brandis, the teen heartthrob from Seaquest D. S. V.. Adventure lasted three seasons, and Lopez was joined by actress Tatyana Ali (Fresh Prince of Bel Air) and co-host/director Jordan Brady. Submitted for your approval is a clip of Brandis' appearance on the show:

Too bad no one wants to try reviving this show.

Rating: B.
