    Man, where do I get started on this one? Thankfully the Teen Nick channel only shows the first three seasons and not these really boring ones. Boring probably is not the right word, awful and unfunny are probably better adjectives to describe Seasons 7-8 of That 70's Show.

    They made Bob too goofy, and not funny goofy, the way he used to be. They made Midge's stupid completely unbelievable, and Red is just a grumpy old man, as opposed to the witty and snarky patriarch of the house hold that he was in the early years.

    They should have ended after this season. The show was clearly done.moreless
  • Bob & Midge separate once again...

    Another step up, finally Eric doesn't have a useless plot, he pulls a prank with the gang which makes this episode adventurous. Eric's craziness is hilarious when he acts all bad when he's mooning that old man, and Kelso gets thrown in jail, I really felt bad for Eric when everyone ditched him! And Kitty has a party toward herself, I love How Jackie gets turned on by Steven saying flow chart, that mad me laugh when Jackie just took her in the other room. Midge in the bathroom sequence was the best part. "The lock is on the doorknob" Favorite line of the episode, I really wanted Bob & Midge to last, oh well, it was fun while it lasted.moreless
  • THAT'S my BUTT!!!

    Hahahah! This episode should be a episode in which makes EVERYONE laugh!

    When Kelso suggestes of a Trench, Eric has a way to "Forman-nizit"; Moon and then Trench. When all else fails, Eric goes to jail, and the hilarious way onto jail esues.

    Meanwhile, thousands of miles away, Hyde and Jackie had to attened a party for Kitty's me party, with a lot of silly curd suing. But, it all goes downhill when Hyde's father, William Barnette, starts wooing Midge. Bob gets angry, Midge locks herself, and they both, um... don't ask. But, at the end, Midge goes to Calfifornia.

    I feel this is the best way of humor. Epscially the part of the circle. Haha!moreless
  • The moon and trench

    Hyde's hypocrisy, Bob and Midge fighting, and Eric trenching are all hilarious plots, and make this episode a great one.

    First Lieutenant Donna causing Kelso to act out at not getting this imaginary rank was hilarious, as was Midge locked in the bathroom, and Hyde's need to be thrown in jail, to stop being the corporate employee that goes against his beliefs.

    The endings were very well done, with Kelso stuck in jail, with Hyde joining him, Midge leaving again, and Kitty making Red shower.

    Overall, the episode is terrific, and really shows the gang's inability to grow up, which is always funny.moreless
  • Not the best episode

    I didnt really laugh at all, maybe it was just me but I don't think it was very funny really. Midge locking herself in the bathroom was the only good bit when Red asks Bob if he wants to get a Motel room together. I don't think it was really up to its usual standard... I love That 70s Show normally and it is hilarious a lot of the time but this episode was not my favourite by a long shot. I kinda felt sorry for Kitty's low self esteem though and it had been obvious for quite some time that she had had low self esteem...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Red: Kitty, how could you have a party without telling me?
      Eric: Maybe it's because every time she tells you, you go through 5 stages. Anger, fury, rage, super rage and finally, cursing God for bringing you into this world.

    • Midge: How could you possibly think I was flirting with another man?
      Bob: Well, Midge, you're a beautiful woman.
      Midge: So are you, Bob.

    • Kitty: Midge, open the door so you can talk to Bob.
      Midge: I can't!
      Kitty: You mean you don't know how? (speaking slowly) The lock is on the door.
      Midge: No, I mean I don't want to come out. But thank you, I see the lock now.

    • Donna: Oh no you dropped the transmission!
      Eric: In English, Donna! In English!
      Donna: Car no go.

    • Eric: Okay, guys, I've been thinking about this trenching thing, and it's a little boring, but I think I figured out a way to "Forman-ize" it.
      Jackie: You mean, make it more boring?

    • Kitty: Didn't you wonder why I bought all that liquor?
      Red: Honestly, no.

    • Hyde (in jail with Kelso): This feels good... this feels right.

    • Eric: Alright, Kelso. Awesome! Get me out of [jail].
      Kelso: Shut up, punk! You know around here we have a saying.
      Eric: Is it "Everyone down, Kelso's got a gun!"?
      Kelso: No. It's "Kelso gets to be first lieutenant". But now, sir, you are a criminal. And you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of my imagination!

  • NOTES (1)

    • Laura Prepon, who plays Donna Pinciotti says of Eric in his underwear at the prison that "Tonight, in that jail cell, he's gonna glow like a little lightning bug." Which is ironically the name of the 2004 movie that she produced.
