1 I've just watched the first four seasons and for the most part have enjoyed it (Save for the Musical episode...shudder). However the Fez overload got to be a bit much. He had a lot of funny moments, don't get me wrong, but he was overexposed at times, and it got annoying how the audience would piss themselves at his every line, even if it was just a "hello." Overall though, those first few seasons have pretty been funny. -- Submitted By: () on July 8, 2012, 11:28 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I enjoyed every season of That 70s Show, though I do agree that the quality declined after Hot Donna became a blond, and was even worse when Eric left. A note on Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: In addition to Tina Pinciotti's disappearance (which was unfortunate, but there were already more than enough characters), Midge mentions Donna's older sister Valerie in one episode. Laurie and Midge both fly in, fly out, fly in again; Midge's return being most improbable as she, a (partially) liberated woman and now divorcee returns to fight over her ex-husband. As Bob goes through Midgey withdrawal, he finds comfort in Jackie's mother (a different actress than Jackie's mother in the first season, by the way) and in Joann; both actresses promptly disappear. If I remember correctly, even Leo disappears for a while. These secondary characters didn't take too much away (we still had the necessary Red and Kitty, Eric and Donna, Kelso and Jackie, Hyde and Fez), but when the show suddenly ripped from us two of our main eight characters, that's when it boned. -- Submitted By: (Oleander29) on June 26, 2012, 11:41 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Meh- When I found out Danny Masterson used it to recruit the actress who played Donna to $cientology it boned for me. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 30, 2011, 9:26 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
4 That '70s Show started off as a great retro-based sitcom much like Happy Days did. But as the run went on the show made the '70s retro references more of a background for the show's silly, irrelevant plots in the middle seasons. This show could've had a never boned moment but all the unnecessary changes doomed it. The penultimate BtF was when Topher Grace left the series after S7. The show was primarily centered around his character and when he left, part of the show went too. The 8th season could've been good (due to the fact that it gave more of the surrounding cast members more to work with) but thanks to the Randy character the 8th season was kind of wishy-washy on and off. And the episode where they had Donna and Randy making out in Eric's old bedroom was just classless. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 29, 2011, 11:27 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I almost forgot that fact, thanks kingbk. Blonde Donna has turned into something like her mother was and what she resented, a blonde ditzy... well I don't know the exact word for the opposite of feminist. It like as soon she change her hair color, her personality change overnight. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on July 20, 2011, 3:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Many ways this show boned: Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher leaving, Randy coming, Hyde marrying the stripper, Fez going from innocent foreign exchange student to horny ladies man, Eric's sister disappearing... but I think my choice will be Donna going blonde. The redhead Donna was opinionated, strong, intelligent, and represented the mid-late 70s feminist movement. The blonde Donna was ditzy, boring and lazy. I never enjoyed the show as much when her hair changed. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 20, 2011, 12:04 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
7 According to Wikipedia it began in 1976. The producers didn't anticipate it lasting as long as it did. The show ran for 8 years which meant that some concession had to be made when the show kept being renewed. All in all this was a pretty good comedy. The BTF moments have already been listed but the crowning moment as far as I am concerned was the musical episode with Roger Daltrey. I nearly became ill as Fez begins singing The Carpenter's 'Sing Out Out Loud'. I'm serious. I couldn't believe that such a good show had sunk to the depths of having a crappy 70's covers episode. I think it was more a WTF than BTF. That a truly awful moment in tv history. If Hyde thought disco was "music from Hell" he should watch this episode. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on July 15, 2011, 12:32 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I could never really get into this show but it seemed to me like they were stuck in 1979 for like 5 years. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 14, 2011, 7:17 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Yeah, like Happy Days, they forgot what decade their show was supposed to take place in and let the modern world seep in. Also Red's "dumbass" insult became a catchphrase that they'd try to work in every episode. Did people even say that back then? In Star Trek IV (1986) for example, it was clearly two words. "Why don't you watch where you're going, you dumb ass!?" -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 14, 2011, 5:18 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 One of those little petty things that started to annoy me about this show was when everybody started using 80's and 90's expressions on the show which was supposed to be in the 70's. She is 'totally' hot! You are 'sooo' askin' for an ass kicking! We didn't use Val Gal slang in the 70's -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on July 14, 2011, 2:27 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
11 I agree with that assessment. Pretty much our generation's Happy Days, all things considered, and like Happy Days, it just ended up going off the path that it shouldn't of gone off of -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on July 13, 2011, 11:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 This show really is the spiritual successor to Happy Days and ironically it made all the same stupid mistakes like Chuck Cunningham Syndrome (Donna's sister), losing the main "All-American boy" character Richie/Eric and having Fonz/Hyde move in with the parents. It's a shame because both shows were retro fun in the first couple of seasons. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 13, 2011, 6:22 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
13 The whole last season was a mess: Randy, Kitty's new hair-do, Hyde's stripper wife who disappeared after 2 or 3 episodes. I also just notice they change Fez from a forgeiner who always trying to get a date but didn't know how to talk to girls to a some sort of jigglo who go sleeping one woman to the next at season 8. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on July 13, 2011, 3:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 I agree. Without Eric and Kelso it wasn't the same. The new guy Randy was kind of annoying and also whne they changed the opening from the cast riding in the car to everybody in the basement. Also I thought the whole thing about Hyde's second dad was a little contrived. It also boned after the group has graduated. The part about Kelso becoming a cop was kind of ridiculous as well. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on July 13, 2011, 2:37 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 I definitely say it "boned" when Topher and probably Ashton left. In the 8th season, however, There is a funny episode where they steal a Fatso Burger mascot, seemingly upsetting, the entire town. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 13, 2011, 1:37 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
16 That's very interesting, I almost forgot the Donna had an older sister, that means she's a middle child of Bob and Midge (or was a middle child). They did say that Happy Days and That '70s show are almost similar to each other. I think Tina (and Valarie) were a nod to Chuck Cunningham hence that joke on the second season episode. I still didn't like it when characters disappears with no reason though. The "Chuck Cunningham Syndrome" is kinda just lazy writing. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on February 23, 2011, 5:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Early in the series, her younger sister, 14-year-old Tina (played by Amanda Fuller), appears in the episode "Eric's Burger Job"[1] but is never seen again, nor do other characters mention her after the first season. At the end of the season 2 episode "Vanstock," this is made fun of when a narrator asks "Whatever happened to Midge's other daughter, Tina?" Donna also had an older sister, Valerie Pinciotti ("Eric's Birthday"). She apparently was in college as revealed by Midge. As Eric is turning 17, Midge shows Kitty a book of poems that helped her "when Valerie went off to school.." These are examples of "Chuck Cunningham Syndrome" (see Happy Days). Donna also mentions having an uncle Carmine in Hoboken, New Jersey, who she hints is in the Mafia.[2] -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on February 17, 2011, 6:38 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 One more I like to add is Donna's sister Tina. It always bother me when a character pulls a "Chuck Cunningham". It wouldn't bother me so much if wasn't RELATED TO ONE OF THE MAIN CHARACTERS. She just vanish without no explainlation at all. It wouldn't bother me as much ethier if she was an adult but she not ("Fez, she's 14."). Kids don't dissapear just like that. At least mention it like she gone to military school or something like that but no, nothing. They have a perfect oppuitiny to explain when Minge(?) left, have Bob said along the lines, "Minge left to Californa and she took my baby girl Tina without telling me.". But again nothing. Even after Minge came back for a little while, nothing. At least pull a Family Guy and have Fez asked Donna what happened to her sister and Donna respond that she died of cancer or something like that. Oh well, my only guess is Tina went where Judy Winslow and Chuck Cunningham has gone with Peter's girlfriend from Heroes went, to the different future where they dissappeared and everybody have their memories erased of them ever existed. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on December 26, 2010, 7:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Sternikstun, I remember reading that before back at that old website whose name I won't mention, and that an excellent point. Anyways I like to add one more thing, Laurie was always manipulated, vain and cold-blooded to people who around her(mostly Eric and his friends) because of Red's spoiling her. I think the turning in one episode(when Laurie lives with another random man) that I remember when Red finds out that Laurie wasn't the littie girl he thought. He finally saw the person for who she really is and hurt him deeply. (I think the ending he forgive he and want to back in because man was married, etc. But I think she didn't appear again until the season finale of season 5). Any ways that episode Laurie realise her errors of her ways when she is no longer a shining star to Red. We see a change woman within Laurie and try to make up the wrongs she did. But that's ruined by her marrying Fez (so he stay in US) causing Red have a heartattack. (Her marrying Fez as well as the heartattack felt so rushed, forced and plain old sloppy to me, maybe a last second change by the writers/FOX just to have an excuse for another season.) Now by the time literally the first episode of the next season aired, Laurie went back to old ways again and worse played by a different actress. They really destroyed the growth of her character, add insult to injury have a unconvincing different actress. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on December 26, 2010, 7:07 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 Another noticeable annoyance was when all of the characters began using more recent slang expressions. That is soooo totally uncool... -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 28, 2010, 6:22 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
