  • The gang discovers Star Wars and thinks an old schoolmate from grade school is hitting on Donna.

    This was a boring episode. It hardly deserves the "7" rating. Eric and the gang discover Star Wars. Kelso may think a lot about it in this episode, but Eric starts the annoying running gag in this episode, after watching Star Wars. Who cares about, aliens or spaceships or whatever? But meanwhile, some guy is coming back to town to reopen the old plant Red once worked at. His son is a guy with scoliosis and asthma that Eric beat up as a kid, but he comes back 100% perfect and Eric beings to suspect he is hitting on Donna. He confides in Donna about it, but she starts getting cranky and says the accusation is ridiculous. But it turns out Eric was right, and the guy admits it. Eric, at first, plans to beat the guy up, but they talk it out and don't after he admits it. Donna? She still gets pissed! Women in Point Place are sure hard to please. But then he says his dad is closing down the plant down, so Eric really beats him up that time. Forget Donna, sometimes it's better to stick up for your ol' man!
