"Seasons 6 and 7 remind me a lot of season 2 in that they did not have a definitive male star on the show. Season 1 pushed the Scott character as the leading male character and Seasons 3-5 had Ryan Parker as their male star. These two seasons could not make up there minds on which male character to highlight as their star, much like season 2 in my opinion. Despite that these seasons had their fair share of memorable moments and did a fine job of closing out the series. I recommend this set to anyone who is a fan of any season of Saved by the Bell: The New Class."
Loses one star compared to seasons 4 and 5

"Richard Lee Jackson is not on these shows, so minus a star. Luckily the characters Nicky, Eric, Maria and Katie were still around so its worth getting. Nothing against the Tony character, but the Ryan Parker character was great."
The Best New Class by far

"I think that SBTB: TNC is unfairly slammed by many fans of the original show due to the fact that people who watched the original series and then TNC grew older and hence were more aware of the insane "cheese" factor that is a staple of SBTB. Let's face it, this isn't Emmy material by far. But it's still entertaining in its own right.
Although TNC's repeated cast changes confused viewers and stunted character development, they finally got it right in the end. One of the things I like about this cast is that the characters were not as confined to stereotypical niches like in the first show ("jock," "nerd" and so on). Each character has their own comedic and dramatic moments to shine. This allowed for a lot more flexibility with the characters to interact with one another and help each other out with the problems they face, as opposed to the original cast who was very clique-ish (i.e. the boys were off doing one thing and the girls another). However, I feel that many of the shows deliver the "moral" way too quickly at the end of most of the episodes. The lessons learned often seem rushed and forced by the writers and thus not very meaningful. I also don't like how Screech's continued downward spiral into a poor excuse for an Urkel impersonator hits its outrageous peak these seasons, even though it does make for some occasional funny material with Mr. Belding.
Furthermore, after 10 years of doing this show, its obvious that Bayside got way too small for them. Alternate settings such as the mall (where almost half of the episodes are filmed) and the police cadet academy (three episodes) just seem way to forced and take away from the original premise of the show.
This may be more attributed to the network or writers, but there are some obvious continuity errors in the sequencing of the episodes. Tony and Maria's relationship is off and on. They are dating in one episode and they have no scenes together in the next. Furthermore, DVD set also includes way too many "clip shows." Finally, the entire 4th disc chronicles their last days at Bayside leading up to graduation, which occurs in the 2nd to last episode, with the last episode on the disc being something random about getting ripped off by a mechanic. Compared to the original SBTB DVD's which had commentary, subtitles, a "Play All" feature, etc., this set seems very rushed.
But in the end, the show does its job. It makes younger viewers aware of the issues they face in adolescence and makes older viewers reminiscent of the good ol days."

"Yah Ryan was my favorite character on The New Class, this is still a good season because the end is awesome when mr. belding leaves and they discuss how live at bayside has been from the begining its kind of like the christmas one when the max burned down and they had flashbacks from the old class....this is a good season too because liz looks really pretty ;-)"
"It's good to have watched this show at least... for me, it's the best of the "New Class " series... In the middle of the laughs, there's a lot of problems that high school students face everyday, like drugs, cigars, first loves, breakups, jokes, deceptions... and friendships...
The set dindn't have any extras... :(
... and if you followed this series since the original cast been in the show, then maybe you'll cry in the last chapter of the show..."
