  • Hyde Moves In

    "Hyde Moves In" was one of those momentous episodes of the series in which every line and scene made you laugh or giggle in some way. For me at least, the laugh was nonstop here. All the characters shined here and we just saw some golden writing here.

    We got a fantastic cold opening that set the rest of the episode in motion in which everyone decides to go skinny dipping. Then we've actually got some emotion with Hyde and his mom stepping out on him. Loved the setup for this considering we knew he's always had problems at home, and we saw it more than ever in "Career Day."

    We got some heartfelt scenes between Hyde & Eric. A hilarious yet still emotional scene between Red & Hyde. Jackie & Kelso's story line just added to that hilarity. The scene when Kelso sees Jackie's face was priceless. Memorable scene to say the least. Overall, a truly perfect episode of That 70s Show, and that's hard to come by!moreless
  • Poor Hyde

    Without many, how do you support someone who is not even aprt of your family? Answer: Kitty forces you to. I really like the diea of Eric and Hyde being 'brothers' in this episode. It was definitely one of the best storylines in That '70s Show history. I just pity how Hyde's mother could treat him that way. It's a very sad situation. This story has a moral and a very good one at that. I wished it had more focus on other characters though. It was too Hyde-centric and Forma family centric. Although the Kelso and Jackie story was hilarious aswell.

    Overall, great episode.moreless
  • This episode is about Hyde moving in with the Formans after his mom abandons him and has the greatest Red moment ever.

    This episode has alot in common with a Happy Days episode "Fonzie Moves In" (Where the Fonz moves in with the Cunninghams), but it's awesome anyway. You feel so bad for Hyde, when his own mom leaves him...without any food or money...So she can have an affair with a trucker! This takes bad parenting to a capital "B". Also, Red letting Hyde move in with him, in the form of an angry, profainty-laced tirade!Awesome Red moment ever (before Red turns into a sociopatic, anger-ridden bully to everyone except his wife). All in all, a great second to last episode of the first season. :)moreless

  • Hyde's mother takes off with a trucker, and when Eric and his mother see the environment that Hyde is left to stay in, they beg Red to let Hyde move in.moreless

    All the torture Hyde's mom has given him has now come to an end! She left him! And the gang first realizes this after the go skinny dipping. Someone stole their clothes, and Hyde says they can wear some of the old clothes at his empty house. At first, Hyde explains his mom is just out of town, but no one, especially Eric, is fooled. As a good friend, Eric confirms that Hyde's mom has left, and brings him food. Then he invites him to spend some nights at his own house to get dinner regularly. Then he explains to his parents that Hyde's mother left him - something Hyde didn't want Forman to do. Red's against it at first, but then he and Kitty take a trip to Hyde's home. A home that looks like a tornado hit it. Red's still defiant against letting Hyde move in, but with some sweet talk from Kitty, he changes his mind, and Hyde finally has a proper home with edible food!moreless
