With Eric and (later on) Kelso gone all Season 8 long, "That 70s Show" will never be the same
I thought that this was a superb episode of "That 70s Show". With Eric and (later on) Kelso being gone all Season 8 long, this show will never be the same. Even though Season 8 is my least favorite season of the show, it really is not that bad and I don't see why everyone says Season 8 is unwatchable. Sure, the episodes aren't as funny as the first 7 seasons were but it's still funny and pretty good. The first episode of were Eric is gone for the Season 8 premiere and Kitty video taping what things have happened since Eric was gone. Kitty telling Eric the story about how she and Red found the bad of weed in the basement was absolutely hilarious. Kitty doing weed in the bathroom and getting high was hilarious. Fez doing his "Porky Pig" impression was funny. Also, Kitty video taping Red about how Red misses Eric towards the end of the episode was hilarious. It was hilarious Kitty was video taping Hyde and Jackie's argument. My score was a little low because a few scenes were a little dragged. Overall, a superb episode of "That 70s Show" and a superb start for Season 8. 9/10moreless
Kitty tapes her voice and everyone else's to give Eric a taste of what he has been missing ever since he left.
Hyde punches Kelso in the aftermath of the previous season finale, and Jackie tries to explain what happened, and Hyde reveals he is not ready to get married- yet. Then, a stripper comes in, and we learn Hyde, who had been gone for a month in Vegas, married this stripper. And on this note, the episode ends.
Great episode. It was funny. I loved Kitty taping Red saying he missed Eric, and I loved Kelso, after being punched in the mouth (I get it!). The delivery of that line had me laughing. And I liked the ending to it. But the show isn't really the same without Eric. I dunno. Overall grade- A-moreless
Solid season premiere that caught us up on last season's finale, and resolves some of the ongoing plots while opening up some new ones. In quality, this was a good season opener. This was probably the only episode in season eight where I didn't feel like they were trying to fill the void of Eric leaving. This episode was focused more on what happened after Eric left. Everything that happens is surprisingly eventful and funny.
Donna, Kitty, and Fez sitting around recording things for Eric got tiresome after a while. Kitty getting high is definitely the highlight of this episode. Jackie & Hyde's relationship starts to fall apart once they start to rehash what happened in Chicago. It only gets worse, when we learn Hyde married a stripper. I felt like the writers were trying to mess their relationship up. It was at a point, where it could have been fixed, but then it just got a whole lot worse. Kelso being in the first couple episodes this season was smart of the show runners. It didn't feel strange watching this episode, even though Eric wasn't in it. So a solid opener.moreless
after eric has leave point place and hyde is gone Kitty, Fez and Donna record a tape for Eric telling him things that had happened since he left first kitty did her own circle and jackie left everything of her dream to look for Hyde and too think that the gang's new friend Charlie fell off the water towner and he dies and Hyde came back and i think it's so annoying that Jackie keeps bring up lets get married are we going to get married and Hyde had married a stripper and kelso fell out of the water towner and livesmoreless
Poor Eric is off, but, still, a rocky start to a final season.
Recording a lot in weeks gets pretty exciting. I really think killing off Charlie was pretty bad. And, I didn't like who Hyde married. Ugh.
But, this episode surrounds moraly, the cahracters comeing BACK to character. Donna is still a maiden of distress, Fez is still funny. Kelso has been funnier, Hyde is the bad boy, and Jackie is still selfish.
What I still like was that Red was doing what he has always dreamed of; throwing away Eric's stuff!
And, you gotta love the recording tape Eric will recieve!
But, still, I hate 3 things about this episode;
2. Charlie dying. I mean, no one dies but him.
3. Eric leaving. But, that's the least of Season 8's problems.
Overall, this episode gets 8.1, for being a good and rocky start down the road of the last season of a great series.moreless
Well, the eighth season is here, and even without Eric, it starts with a bang.
Eric's in Africa, and for continuity sakes, Fez, Kitty and Donna are making an audio tape to send to him. They describe Red's "downheartedness" and Kitty's first voluntary experience with their "secret stash" (The first actual time is with the brownies back in the season 2 opener "Garage Sale"), which resulted in Kitty experiencing a slew of hallucinations, each funnier than the previous. She also attempts to get Red to reveal to Eric how much he misses him, but all he does is make fun of Eric's toys and his disappointment in Eric's lack of sport interest. But Kitty, always one step ahead of her husband, tricks a confession out of him, revealing her potential to be an FBI agent.
Also, Kelso is desperately trying to avoid Hyde after being caught with Jackie in a motel. Only to find out that Hyde simply wanted to deck him one, before constantly **** at Jackie for the supposed betrayal.
After that's settled, Jackie learns from Kelso himself that Hyde went to see her in an attempt to ask her to marry him. But after the insanity from the motel, Hyde reveals that it was an attempt for him and Jackie to stay together, and that he's not ready to get married...yet. Of course, this backfires severely when an exotic dancer shows up at the house, revealing that when Hyde was drowning his sorrows in Las Vegas, she and Hyde got married!
This results in Jackie going off the bend and attempts to start breaking guys hearts again. She, Donna and Fez head out to a local bar, attempting to seduce men and then cast them aside, but it backfires when the first guys she hits on is interested in Donna, and another girl hits on Fez, resulting in Jackie being the fifth wheel.
Jackie, of course, does not take the rejection well (then again, when did she?) and gets a tad snockered (Jerkie Backhart, LOL!), and after an unforeseen wardrobe malfunction, she locks herself in the bathroom for the rest of the night, although if she stayed out, she would have seen that the two hitting on Donna and Fez are actually married and hit on other people in order to make the other jealous and the sex at home great. Jackie eventually swears off men (and every gender, you pervs).
Also, Leo, while left in charge of the record store, ends up turning it into a stoner circle for him and his hippie friends. But when Hyde tries to fire him in a circle of his own, he instead ends up hiring a new guy, Randy (you may recognize him from MadTV) and Leo keeps his job.
Oh, and whatever happened to Charlie you ask? Well, during one night on the water tower, Charlie falls off (Ala Kelso, Hyde, Fez and Eric) but apparently he isn't made of sterner stuff, and thus the tower was named after him, cause, you know, he DIED!!!
Lots of interesting developments during this opener, Surprise marriages, death, new guys, wardrobe malfunctions, and the first episode where there is no Eric whatsoever. An interesting start to a highly skeptical season.moreless
Season 8 begins, leaving Eric behind
This is a hilarious opener to the seventh season, and while it doesn't have the exact same charm as previous seasons, the episode is nonetheless entertaining, particularly the old water tower joke, that never gets old no matter how many times it's happened over the series. The fact that it seems to start off as an initiation for Charlie to go through to be one of the gang (with Fez saving the beer rather than Charlie) and turns out to be a deadly end for the new character is funny and seems to show that the season will continue with the existing characters.
Jackie and Hyde is a relationship that's gone on too long, and the Kelso/Jackie relationship was much funnier, but the plot was very well driven in the episode, and the twist that Hyde did get married, but not to who he assumed he'd be forced to eventually, but rather a drunken elope with a stripper, is just hilarious, and is bound to set up some good conflict.
This episode was consistently funny, especially Eric's tape and Kelso being dumber than ever, and is a good start to what is hopefully a satisfying season.moreless
Hyde marries a stripper in Vegas. Eric is gone and Kitty expieriments with the gang's "Stash."
I thought it was hilarious and I did not expect the whole Hyde marrying a striper thing, but it was a great start to an ok season.I thought the part where Kitty was caught smoking in the bathroom was very funny and the part where Jackie and Donna are at the bar and jackie says, "I don't have a hot friend." The "Boobs Out" part was funny too.
The eighth season picks up with Kitty and Red discovering their empty nest isn't very empty, even with Eric in Africa. Hyde returns from Las Vegas, where he went to clear his mind.Hyde surprises the crew when the find out he got married to a stripper name
This episode was a great way to start the season off. This one as one of my favorites. i can not believe Hyde as a wife and he did not even remember. What a total mind blower. Jackie also has an embarassing accident which makes her very upset. Jackie also says that she is done with men which the viewers no isnt going to happen. This episode also tells the us, the viewer, what has happened between the Season 7 finale and this fantastic new episode. I was also very surprised when Hyde hit Kelso. this episode was truly amazing and very exciting.moreless
I have to admit, not bad for an episode without Topher. Made me laugh a good amount.
Kitty is distraught over the fact that she now has an empty nest, she wants someone to care about, only to find out that just because Eric is gone, doesen't stop the gang from making themselves at home at the Formans. Kitty and Donna make a documentary of whats been going on in Point Place to send to Eric. Hyde came home from Las Vegas and to Jackies displeasure, he was completely over her. When Hyde finally sees Kelso, he punches him in the face and tells him he got everything that he wanted to say all in that one punch. Jackie still tries to win back Hyde once she finds out that his intentions were to marry her. Although, while Hyde was in Vegas, he accidentally married a stripper, Samantha. While making Eric his Documentary, the flashbacks reveal that after finding the gangs stash, Kitty decides to have her fair share of some of the gangs stash.moreless
