FOX (ended 2006)
|I think it was good that Kelso was with Jackie in the beginning but she should have definetly have ended up with Hyde. Kelso and Jackie sort of outgrew each other and it was good with Hyde and Jackie and Fez doesn't make much sense.|
|Jackie and Hyde, w/o a doubt. They complimented each other so well. They may have been opposites, but they brought out the best in each other and their chemistry was dynamic. If only the writers would've seen the potential for the final season.|
A crush? Hmmm, I'd call it more of a dependency on Fez. He was ALWAYS there to help Jackie and she knew he would be there when she had problems (they spent a lot of time together after she and Hyde split in Season 7) but their dynamic worked so well when they were just best friends.
But then again, we all have our opinions and that's what makes discussions so interesting lol.
I'm totally in the minority here, but that's ok...LOL
I think that Jackie ended up with the right person: FEZ. Why? Because he's sweet, funny, sensitive, a romantic-at-heart, not to mention---very handsome, and he's always been there for her. Fez will truly be there for Jackie when she needs him. He'll gladly attend weddings with her, he'll really listen to her when she talks. Fez will truly respect Jackie and value their relationship. He won't freeze up when Jackie mentions the word "marriage"; if anything, he'll be the first one to bring up the subject (I can totally see Fez trying to plan the "perfect proposal", just like he tried to plan the "perfect kiss" with Jackie at the water tower in the series finale) . And Fez won't run out and cheat on Jackie when things get tough(like Kelso and Hyde did).
I've read some comments about Fez being a "pervert" at the end. Yeah, he may have had certain "tendencies", but I really think that was all done for laughs; the writers knew how great Wilmer Valderrama was with comedy, so they just threw all that stuff in. And I gotta say--Wilmer was the perfect casting choice for Fez. I don't care how "weird" Fez may have been at times; I think he was a real sweetie and I'm so glad that he "got the girl" in the end. And I do feel that Jackie/Fez had wonderful chemistry together all throughout the series. Seeing Jackie fall in love with Fez was a very pleasant surprise for me.
Jackie/Kelso were cute and entertaining in the beginning, but just not compatible in the longrun. Kelso cheated with Pam Macy, then Laurie and he totally took Jackie for granted(example: running off to California during the summer, hooking up with some Beach-Barbie, then coming back to Point Place and expecting Jackie to welcome him with open arms) I did feel a little bad for Kelso when he found about Jackie/Hyde(especially since he and Hyde had been good pals for so long); but on the other hand, I felt that Kelso had no right to expect Jackie to automatically take him back. After all, he ran off for the summer, had a nice little adventure, not really caring about Jackie's feelings. Again, J/K just weren't compatible, but I liked that they were able to maintain a friendship afterwards--very nice.
Jackie/Hyde had the opposites attract thing going, which was very interesting to watch--for a little while. I just felt like Jackie was the main one putting all the effort into that relationship. And I was really disappointed when Hyde cheated with that nurse(I thought he was different from Kelso in that sense) But even after that, I still didn't mind J/H together. However, there was soooo much drama. Jackie seemed to take their relationship more seriously than Hyde did.
I remember in Season 7 :Jackie wanted to talk about marriage--she wasn't demanding a ring or proposal; she wanted to know that it would be a possibility someday, but Hyde couldn't even give her that much; he just said, "I don't know. Why can't you just be happy with what we have?" I mean, Hyde had known Jackie long enough at that point to know that "yes, she wants more!" In the previous season, Hyde had even seen Jackie wearing a wedding gown, when she was helping Eric pick out his tux...LOL.
And by Season 8, I had no interest at all in seeing Jackie & Hyde get back together. I mean, he ran off and married a stripper--a complete stranger at that! Yeah, Hyde was "drunk" when he did it, but he was very sober when he CHOSE to stay married to Sam, knowing how insulted and hurt Jackie would feel.
Having watched all of Season 8, it just appeared to me that Hyde and Jackie were clearly over each other, no signs at all of still wanting each other. In the end, J/H just weren't compatible to me; they didn't want the same things.
Kelso and Hyde just couldn't give Jackie what she needed. Yes, Fez is the third guy in the "circle" with whom Jackie got involved. But I interpret that as--"Third Time's The Charm". And I just love stories where the girl realizes that her perfect match has been in front of her the whole time. And no, there may not have been a lot of build-up to J/F ending up together...but that's why it's called a "twist", right?
Fez was Jackie's roommate, her good friend--not some stranger with whom she had no history. So I don't find it far-fetched at all that J/F ended up together. And I simply loved all their episodes leading up to their union--Jackie wanting to be with Fez while he's totally clueless about the whole thing, Jackie kissing Fez and telling him she wanted to be with him, Fez telling Jackie she's beautiful(while her hair is green) and saying "Even if you dumped me after a week, it'd be the best week of my life. I just want to be with you"--awww...Fez was so sincere--that scene, in my opinion, showed how much he loved Jackie. And I loved how he automatically ran after Jackie, instead of being all stubborn.
|Although what you've heard is only a rumour, I read an online interview in which Wilmer said he would sign on only if certain stipulations were met. Additionallly he went on to say that there were many surprises and twists that would occur in the 8th season.|
I think I read that on www.zap2it.com last year.
How many times did Fez spy on Kelso/Jackie, Hyde/Jackie, or just Jackie in general? No matter how nice he was to her, how the hell could she date a guy who had spied on her with her boyfriends for years?
