Anybody else watch That 70s Show? I think it's frigging hilarious, especially Red calling everyone a dumbass or saying he's going to kick some ass
Who is the actress that plays Donna, for a ginger she's pretty sweet

Count me in, too. Thanks to the "wonders" of the internet , I even get to watch it in the original American version, so I can happily ignore the crappy dubbed German one.
I have to say, though, that the show has a lost of its appeal to me since the start of the latest season. Most jokes and stereotypes have been repeated over and over again, and it becomes harder to believe that the actors are still 18 years old - despite makeup, the all look like they are at least in their mid-20's. Also, for how long has it been the year 1979 now? Three years?

Technically I think the show started in 1975 or 76. So it has acutally been on for a quite some time.
It gets reruned back to back at 5 pm, so when I get home from work I plop down on the couch and watch it before making dinner.
Admittedly some of the gags are getting old. Eric still doesn't get it and continues to screw things up with Donna. Kelso is still retarded and infantile, though he appears to have grown a tiny bit as a character, but not very much. Fez is still annoying as hell, whining for candy and sex. You would think in 5 seasons that the characters might actually grow and seem more mature and grown up, like most of us do from age 16 to 20.
And did anyone else notice that the actress playing Eric's sister changed 2 seasons back?

That is probably one of my all time favorite shows. I have downloaded every single episode and i watch at least one a day. It's hilarious... . I was wondering about the 79 too. I think it's been like that for 2 seasons. What will happen when it becomes 80? Will the series be over or will there be a 80's show except a good one and not like the one that failed miserably.

I've seen most of the episodes too. I think the best days might be over, seems like the shows are too predictable now. Last season (the 6th) was kind of a let down, the material sucked. I thought they did a terrible job with Fez and Laurie's marriage. The brand new shows have been better though. I miss Tommy Chong, will he come back after he's outa the slammer?

The current season on Fox is the last season for the show. I like Fez, especially when he's pulling something on Kelso. Hyde was cool until he started dating Jackie, no he's whipped. But the show wouldn't be what it is without Red and Kitty. BTW, Laura Prepon in on the cover of the current issue of the US edition of Maxim:

I watch it... its actually at the top of my Tivo Season Pass list!
Unfortunately, its definately lost its edge... they really should have tried to do something with it when everyone graduated, instead the plot has turned to "lets just pretend everyone stays the same." As DesertJets mentioned, its starting to rehash the same gags.
They really need to start to develop the characters again, or, preferably, just cancel the season. I'd personally much rather see it end on a somewhat decent note, instead of the writers and producers continue what almost always becomes a slow, painful death.
