  • WHY?!

    First off, To the other people who reviewed this, KILLL YOUR SICK FUCKING SELVES! "This episode was so amazing because it deals with taboo & incest" NO IT'S NOT! NO ONE SHOULD DO THAT! " It was very funny when Eric's cousin Penny lied about her being adopted and when Eric was about to have sex with until Penny lied and said that she wasn't adopted" NO IT WASN'T! YOU ARE A STUPID ***! (Also, you FAIL at grammar!) "Don't you hate it when the cousin you used to always pick on comes back hotter and more flirtatious than ever, causing you to think very bad thoughts about said cousin? No? Well, you should talk to Eric Forman" NO, IF THEY SAID "NO" THEY SHOULD KILL THEM SELVES AND THEN THEY'D GO TO HELL! "not a bad episode" YES! IT! IS! "considering how disturbing the plot could have been" No, not could've been. IS! Overall, This episode is sick and wrong! Eric loves Donna, not Penny! Even if she WAS adopted, It'd still be sick and wrong! Because they may not be related to you by genetically, They are still related to you! (Legally) Being adopted doesn't make it not sick! And you still go to jail (and hell) for it! But THANKFULLY, Nothing happened! What the fuck were they thinking with this episode?!!!!!!moreless
  • Eric's hot cousin Penny comes to visit

    I thought that this was an excellent episode of "That 70s Show". It would've been a 10 but the ending ruined it which I'll tell you by the end because I have to explain the plot to all of you. Eric's hot cousin Penny comes over the visit but Eric and the gang didn't expect Penny to be HOT and all that. She wasn't that hot to me but she was kind of pretty. I loved the subplot a little more though when Kitty needed something to accompany her such as a pet. Kitty wants to get a pet cat but Red doesn't like to have cats in the house so Red buys Kitty a pet goldfish. The subplot was absolutely hilarious with Kitty and the pet goldfish especially when Kitty was talking to the goldfish and you can see her huge head through the glass bowl. It was very funny when Eric's cousin Penny lied about her being adopted and when Eric was about to have sex with until Penny lied and said that she wasn't adopted. Red and Kitty think that Eric is nasty. It was absolutely hilarious when Eric said "I was sleepwalking" and then Red responds "I will be sleepkicking in your @$$". Eric calling Donna "Little Red Riding B**ch" was hilarious. The only thing I didn't like was the ending when it was just Penny's prank all this time but it was hilarious when the gang was taking pictures of Eric running in his underwear. Overall, this was an excellent episode of "That 70s Show" except for the ending. 9.5/10moreless
  • "Little Red-Riding B****!"

    This episode was so amazing because it deals with taboo & incest, well not really but Eric was thinking of it which was also going on frequently in the 70's. Anyways I like A plot waaay better, Donna & Jackie try to be more attractive than Penny so they try to get a tan, I love how their slapping each other & Jackie was just like Penny.; The C plot was also laughable, how Kitty got a fish & purposely flushed him so she can get her job back. And when Red & Kitty caught him with his underwear was hilarious or should I say man panties.moreless
  • Naughty thoughts a-brewing!

    Don't you hate it when the cousin you used to always pick on comes back hotter and more flirtatious than ever, causing you to think very bad thoughts about said cousin? No? Well, you should talk to Eric Forman, founder of the club that nobody in their right mind would join. If he won't speak, you can always see the tape that his mates made of him completely embarassing himself when he finds out his crush is not adopted while making a move in front of his parents no less!

    Kelso had some great lines in this episode, especially in the 360, and while Kitty getting a pet (not the cat she expected) wasn't quite as entertaining, it is an important plot as she rejoins the hospital.

    Overall, not a bad episode, considering how disturbing the plot could have been.moreless
