That 70's Show - Anyone Watch It?

Mon Nov 08, 2004 9:38 pm

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  Big grin

You're all about the ass aren't you...?  Big grin

Well, I kinda watched it while I was in the Air Force. That is, my roomates watched it from time to time, and I happened to be in the same room.  Smile

Ok for killing some time, but not among my favourite sit coms...

I enjoy it...I was in high school in the 70s and just looking at the clothes and hairstyles reinforces the opinion that the 70s were the decade that taste forgot!

Donna is played by Laura Prepon.

I do - they show it every evening on Canal Jimmy (OK in French, but when the new series are shown for the first time, they show it subtitled in English normally, then get it dubbed).

Count me in, too.  Big thumbs up Thanks to the "wonders" of the internet  Big grin, 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? Big grin

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... Smile/happy/getting dizzy. 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.

Red to Eric: Son, tyou don't have bad luck. The reason why bad things happen to you is, because you're a dumbass!

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?


peace

I love this show. I usually don't watch TV a lot but this, 24 and Dead like me are exceptions.

Only problem for me is that TV4 who broadcast it in Sweden runs it on weird times 5:05pm so I can only see the last part of it. I get home from work at 5:15pm.

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!  Smile

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.
