  • 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.
