In my opinion the 8th season was very poor. After eric left it felt like there was no good reason for the kids to hang out at the formans household. Here's an idea for a spin off series. It is 1979 and the town of point place is loosing a lot of work due to the oil crisis. Now fez,hyde,jackie andDonnaneed to apply to a local college. Here's adescriptionof the known and new characters.
Donna - She studies journalism know and shares adorm roomwithJackie. She takes her studies very seriously and sometimes she uses a drug to stay awake. this could be a big problem for her during the season.
Jackie - She studies cosmetics and is a litlle bit less serious then donna and goes to a lot of parties. But later she meets up with a new guy and she becomes less snobby
Hyde - Lives with fez in a dormroom. He studies mechanics and he owns a bike know. He still feels like he becomes a conformer.Sometimes he doesn't study hard enough but he gets by.
Fez - He studies english to become a translator. He still has a crush onJackiebut later in the season he meets a girl from his country.
Principal Rudy - a some what tight ass who checks up on his students a lot. laterDonnaandHydeget troubles with him.
Lunch ladyNorma - a nice sweet lady who has to serve crappy food. Fez has a crush on her.
Teacher Paul powers - A some what neurotic man who runs a tight schedule.
TeacherSarahWalters - Agood lookingwoman and love interest ofHydeand fez at first. Later on in the season they find out she married.
JanitorSergeikolorov - ARussianman who acts strange at times. he might be a spy. butHydeand fez continue tosubconsciouslyspoil his plans of spying on the students. ( opening up a door whenSergeitries to contact the motherland and he falls into a dumpster) Maybe later the find out that he is a s.vjet spy and have to stop him.
JasonClearwater- The love interest ofJackiehe is cool and very different from her but he finds her not so **** as she claims to be.
Ritaconstanza- The girl from fez country. She is alittlebitgulliblebut fez stands up for her.
Recurring roles - Red , bob and kitty who visit the kids from time to time. Redof coursesees this is a lame ass college. Kitty is overprotective and brings them fruits and vegetables. Bob want's to stay on campus after seeing Sarah. A few episodes he hides on campus.
This would be a great start for aspin offcalled that 70's show the college year. The gang is growing up and characters change gradually. Not unlike the 8th season we all know. A continuation where it felt likeEricand kelso never left.
