Show Summary

Set in the era of Led Zeppelin 8-tracks, Tab cola and Farrah Fawcett posters, THAT '70s SHOW returns for an eighth season as it continues to flash back to the "Me Decade." With changes in their lives and adjustments being made, the gang from Point Place is moving onward and upward in season eight of THAT '70s SHOW. While the kids continue to make the sometimes bumpy and often hilarious transition into adulthood, the parents are forced to deal with an empty nest. DONNA (Laura Prepon) grows more popular at the radio station and realizes that a long-distance relationship with Eric isn't going to work, so she starts dating again, eventually meeting the person who may actually be "the one." HYDE (Danny Masterson) runs a successful record store – with Leo (Tommy Chong) as his slacker employee – and makes a final decision about his complicated relationship with JACKIE (Mila Kunis). Meanwhile, FEZ (Wilmer Valderrama) reveals more about his family and home country as he grows into quite the local Lothario. And at the Formans', KITTY (Debra Jo Rupp) has problems with no kids in the house, while RED (Kurtwood Smith) has problems because it still seems like there are always kids in the house. The eighth season of THAT '70s SHOW will continue the signature elements that have made the series a hit, including the surreal dream sequences, the 360-degree basement scenes and the classic '70s score. The retro series has featured numerous '70s icons since its premiere, including Gloria Gaynor, Shirley Jones, Danny Bonaduce, Charo, Alice Cooper, Marion Ross, Eve Plumb, Ted Nugent, Howard Hesseman, Valerie Harper and Roger Daltrey. Additionally, stars such as Luke Wilson, Lindsay Lohan, Jack Osbourne, Brooke Shields, Seth Green, Jessica Simpson and Shannon Elizabeth have also made guest appearances.

  • Probably the best thing to watch for nostalgia of family, friendship and growing up!

    9.0
    This series just sends off good vibes. The writing is very smooth, as in the continuity (for the most part) is kept track of, the characters actually evolve and it never fails at being funny. Kelso and Fez are the stooges, Jackie's the cheerleader preppy girl, Hyde is the go with the flow stoner conspiracy theorist, Eric is goody tooshoes and Donna is the girl next door. The chemistry between the characters just makes you enjoy the series more. Definitely recomm ended.



    Ashton Kutcher and Topher Grace left after season 7, and the final season suffered badly because of that, but it was still funny. Just couldn't be placed with the other seasons in terms of quality.moreless
  • A 'Feel Good' Sitcom.

    7.0
    Basically what it was, a 'Feel Good Sitcom'. What came off as a comedy centered on the crazy seventies became a series of memories, with six characters who weren't adults but conflicted, confident, amusing teenagers who had a decade to come to terms with themselves. "That 70's Show" was like an everlasting song that had tunes for all types; when the show got serious, so did we. When it turned every life's direction, we always tried to convince ourselves this wasn't the way. That was the funny part of "That 70's Show", the many odd and wrong directions each character wanted to take. And the bumps along the way.

    The show centered Eric Forman (Topher Grace) who isn't the ideal son for Red Forman (Kurtwood Smith) but the sugar and love for mother Kitty (Deborah Jo Rupp) and the smarter half of his slutty yet sexy sister Laurie, who went missing most the show. The Forman basement maybe one of the popular sets in TV because everything seems to just happen there; the 'Circles' were always held there and most of the exchanges that supplied great humor and good heart were in center there.

    Eric was the light of the show because he was that boy most of us could relate to. His lack of confidence and his mistaken ideals. The boost were from his best friends, the brother like Steven Hyde (Danny Masterson), a rebel without a cause, sometimes using his 'breaking all the rules' look in blame of the disappearance of his father and abandonment of his mother. The handsome idiot Michael Kelso (Ashton Kutcher) who gave the big laughs for the show. Wilmer Valderama played Fez, simply Fez and throughout the show we never really do figure what country he's from especially because his accent is so unique and dumbfound ly charming. Donna Pinciotti (Laura Prepon) the hot red turned blonde who is most of the heart for the series and Eric. Jackie Burkhart (Mila Kunis), rich and annoying girl who had her way with Hyde, Kelso and formerly Fez.

    With eight seasons we were watching episodes that delivered and never disappointed. If it were for Eric replying to Donna's "I love You" with "I love cake", The Formans and Pinciottis (Don Stark and Tanya Roberts) discovering Eric and Donna soon to be married. Or even the Water Tower episode, the silly and hilarious joy of pot head Leo (Tommy Chong). The break up of Eric and Donna and the many break ups of Jackie and Kelso and Hyde with Jackie. So much love and hate.

    Guest starring roles of Brooke Shields as the sexy mother Burkhart made killer episodes and so did Mary Tyler Moore, Cher, Billy de Williams (the Star Wars fanatic priest), Betty White, Alice Cooper, Seth Green, Gene Simmons, Amy Adams, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Bruce Willis, Walter Knight and Don Knotts.



    Grace and Prepon were just right for the romance, especially the comic of Grace and his obsession with Star Wars and Joe. Masterson only needed sympathy and yet made Hyde the coolest of teenagers. Valderama had many unique and single moments that made Fez likable every time. Kutcher was the energy and high comedy the show needed and Kunis was the immature yet beauty that made love seem impossible. Kurtwood Smith and Debrah Jo Rupp were underrated and yet when I think about most of the show; winning Red's acceptance was always the need for Eric and the series.



    "That 70's Show" wasn't the best of tv sitcoms, it lacked the perfected value "Friends" had and didn't match much with "Everybody Loves Raymond". But nowadays most shows seem to center on best friends learning to grow up in life and those lack what "That 70's Show" had.



    As Kutcher and Grace left before the final season, the show lowered itself and yet we wished it could've continued. In the end, its finale wasn't perfect but it brought memories of the greater seasons which is good enough and as always great decades come to an end, so do shows.
