    Entertaining, if anything else. I must say this isn't an awful installment to the season. It was just an entertaining half hour, that gives you some laughs from time to time. But of course we've got the same season eight annoyances.



    Is Laura Prepon for real? I wonder what was going through her mind when she was reading the script. I really lost respect for Laura Prepon in this episode, she was just disappointing, and the fact that she was running around like an out of character idiot was extremely annoying. And how come no one else is noticing how ridiculous the characters have become? Watching the first episode of That 70s Show, you wouldn't think of Donna as someone who would want to kidnap, would you?



    I'll have to admit, this episode was one of the better episodes of season eight, but we've got Randy who is especially annoying in this episode, and then we've got Jackie, afraid of clowns? Come on, That 70s Show, you can do better than that. When Fez threw the pickle on Donna's forehead and everyone laughed, I felt like the audience was forced too, it was not funny at all.



    The good thing about this episode, is that it was entertaining and funny in small doses, but that's about it. Season eight continues with it's normal mediocrity.moreless
  • The gang goes to a burger store and Randy supposedly becomes anitiated through stealing some clown head.

    This episode showed how bad this show has become Donna acted like a moron instead of the cool girl and too much was playd off of jackie being afraid of clowns. Randy doesn\\\\\\\'t fit into the group he doesn\\\\\\\'t have any distiguished qualities. Donnas the cool chick, jackies the bubblegum, kelsos the looker, hydes the anarchist, erics the average guy who everyone mooches off of, and fez is the foreign guy. Randy doesn\\\\\\\'t fit at all, and he makes corny jokes.moreless
  • If this episode was a horse....

    0.7
    Allright, first off I want to say I've been a big fan of this show since the start. I look forward to downloading every new episode off the internet and have em' all on disc, well almost all. O.K. that said, this was the absolute worse episode ever. That Randy character is totally worthless for starts and getting him this involved in an episode was a very bad move(it's just a bad casting decision is what the prob is here. He must be someone in management's relative). The sad thing here is, Randy is not the major problem with this episode. The script is the worse ever, the characters are all apathetic, and the plot in and of itself has no bearing of resemblance to anything previous to this. The exchange between Fez and Bob is the one redeeming point, in all fairness, but it can't save the episode (this is the only reason I gave it a 0.7). I don't know if they fired the writers and just told the actors to "roll of the cuff". Everyone is looking just too old and they really seem like they aren't even trying anymore. It's sad. If the episode was a horse, I'd shoot it. I guess there's something to be said for ending a good thing while it still is.moreless
  • This is rather a flashback into the good old show, rather than tribute.

    9.0
    Oh, my, god. I just LOVE this episode! Obviously, this was the second best Season 8 episode. The gang tries vandilizing. Yup, the same ole' thing they did last 7 years ago!



    I think Fez sets the record for us fans, that we hate Randy too.

    "Boo Randy, Yay Fez!"

    And, really, the whole Fatso the clown talking thing was just funny, I kept laughing for about 10 minuets.



    There's even more, thanks to Blonda Donna. Yah! With the "Pickle Attack!" and the "This Frekin' rocks!" and the "I'm keepin' the nose!" Funny, funny, Donna!



    About the only thing that ruined to score was that Randy was the one who suggested it. I mean, could it be Fez, because- well, Randy just is too- normal for this!



    Overal Score;

  • CLOWNS!

    9.6
    Whether it's Bob getting into an argument with a ceramic clown, Jackie's irrational fear of clowns, Red pretending to care about the stolen clown or Fez making out with the Fatso clown, this episode is bound to turn your clown upside down. I'll try to go through the rest of the review without using the C-word again, but I'm not making any promises.



    Anyway, a whole episode based around Fatso is hilarious, and everyone's reactions to the gang's latest rebellions were hilarious, though some jokes seemed familiar, for instance "righty loosey, lefty tighty" has been done in Scrubs, but of course this is still a standout episode, considering Eric and Kelso aren't in it, and as Hyde sums up, the whole episode turned out to be quite a waste of time, until their vandalism object was destroyed. Either way, I managed to get through the whole second paragraph without saying clown. Aw, dammit. Foots in asses!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Fatso the clown has his nose painted on his face. When Fez unintentionally shatters Fatso, only the torso shatters, and the head is seen rolling away, intact. However, a few seconds later, Donna picks up a red ball from the debris of the torso, and refers to is as "the nose".

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Donna: We're stealing a clown. Being bad is so exciting! Look, my palms are sweaty. When I was with Eric the only time my palms got sweaty was when I was holding his sweaty palms.

    • Fez: I've got it! Let's throw a bunch of pickle slices at his window. Then he'll be a prisoner in his own pickle prison!
      Randy: Or we could steal Fatso the Clown.
      Hyde: Steal Fatso the Clown. That's genius.

    • Hyde: So there it is. The clown's back. Everyone is happy and nobody went to jail... What a waste of time.

    • Fez: I can't believe I got to third base with a clown.
      Donna: Fez, there's nothing below his waist.
      Fez: Well I got ahold of something.

    • (about stealing Fatso)
      Hyde: Mrs. Forman, I can explain. There's nothing to do in this town.

    • (about Fatso)
      Red: Nice going. I hate that thing. It's always smilin' when nothing's funny.

    • Bob: I'll always remember where is was when I heard the news that Fatso was stolen. I was reading the paper in the can, same way with Kennedy.

    • Hyde: That was awesome. Bob just got into a fight with a ceramic clown.
      Donna: Believe it or not, that wasn't the first time.

    • Randy: I'll just ask Red if I can borrow the car.
      Hyde: While you're at it, why don't you ask Red if your ass can borrow his foot?

    • Fez: Listen Randy. Just because I ate three hamburgers, doesn't mean I like you. It just means I have no self-control.

    • Jackie: Fez, why do you pick on Randy? Based on his hair and his looks, I think he's a really good person.
      Fez: I just don't like people who aren't from here, that's all.

    • Donna: Fez, chairs are first come, first serve. We decided that in the great chair negotiation of '78.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • At the very end of the episode, Jackie wakes up in her bed, which is covered in blood, next to the severed head of Fatso the Clown.

      This is an allusion to a scene in the 1972 movie The Godfather, where Hollywood producer Jack Woltz, played by John Marley, wakes up in bed next to the severed head of his prized race horse after he would not do a favour for Don Corleone.

    • Donna: We were watching The Boy In The Plastic Bubble and someone came really near the bubble with a pair of scissors.

      The Boy In The Plastic Bubble was a 1976 made-for-TV movie starring John Travolta about a boy who lacked a viable immune system and had to spend his life isolated inside a plastic bubble.
