FOX (ended 2006)
JACKIE AND KELSO ARE MEANT TO BEEEEE. THEY WERE THE CUTEST COUPLE EVERRRR.
+ my favorite episode of the Jackie & Hyde relationship was when they went on their 1st date. that was so cute.
I didn't like them together when it first happened, but as season 5 progressed they grew on me. Like other people said they did bring out the good in each other (and some bad). They made a good beta couple IMO and that surprised me. By season 6 I was just as invested in them as Eric and Donna. I would have liked Hyde and Jackie to end up together, but I could understand why they broke up in the middle of season 7. Hyde wasn't sure he wanted to settle down and Jackie did. It was becoming a bigger issue, so them breaking up made since. When they got back together I was happy, but in the grand scheme of things that was pointless. Season 8 they broke up in such a stupid way when they already laid down a good reason for them to break up in season 7. I thought it was stupid to bring them back together just to break them up like five episodes later. What I got was how in the first episode of season 8 that Hyde still seemed to love Jackie, but after Sam comes he acts like he is over Jackie.
I needed more time to see Fez and Jackie before I can make a call on them. The series has shown moments that made me think Fez and Jackie would be good together in earlier seasons. She's always had a sweet spot, but I felt season 8 made too many jokes on how Jackie went from Kelso to Hyde and how characters, Donna, the therapist, and even Fez questioned if it was genuine. Hell the very last circle Kelso and Hyde even joked about how Jackie was passed around. I half expected them to tell Eric to watch out since he was the only one left.. I think since it happened in the end of season 8 there was no time to disprove that. In a lot of ways Fez felt more like the rebound guy than Hyde did when he and Jackie got together in season 5 to me. I think Fez and Jackie has the potential to be good, but there wasn't enough time to explore it.
I liked Jackie with Hyde. I wanted them to stay together. I felt their break up in season 8 was bad and that if they did not want them together that they should have just kept them broken up in season 7, with them wanting different things and not the Kelso/stripper thing.
Whether or not we really like Jackie with Hyde (although I do), they very much belong together and it makes sense. They simply deserve each other; both characters are generally jerks to other people. So, it makes sense for Jackie who's full of herself, annoying, and high maintenance to be with Hyde, the guy who hates relationships, puts everybody down, and barely wants to care. And vice versa for Hyde. So they get what they deserve. It just feels right. Its poetic justice.
