  • Definitely not as good as "Bohemian Rhapsody"

    5.5
    Okay, this is the episode that shows how my Season 8 became my least favorite season. Sure, it isn't bad but there are some pretty unwatchable episodes. In fact, I don't think I've ever watched unwatchable episodes in the first 7 seasons. This is possibly one of "That 70s Show"'s worst episode. While Season 8 isn't the best, it also bad but something tells me that the characters are starting to get rehashed since Eric is gone in Africa. There were really no memorable moments in this episode. Not even my favorite characters Fez and Leo could save this episode. I was funny when Leo brought in a bunch of hippies in the beginning of the episode. I also laughed at Jackie getting drunk and having a boob slip as in one of her boob was showing. Don't worry, it's off-screen since this show is TV-14. I don't think I laughed at any else after that. Also, Randy and Samantha have got to be the worst characters in the finale season of this show. Overall, this was just a mediocre episode of "That 70s Show" and it's definitely one of their worst episodes I've seen. 5.5/10moreless

    After the surprisingly good premiere last week, it's no surprise that this episode would be bad. Even Ashton Kutcher's presence could not help this episode. I come to realize that Eric leaving is definitely not the only thing that went wrong this season. Everyone's character has been extremely exaggerated (i.e. Fez and his "foreign" accent, Leo does drugs we get it) Seriously, Fez used to be one of the best additions to the cast, but he hasn't said anything remotely funny in years. His accent has become way over the top, just compare it to his season one accent, you'll see. We've got two new horrible additions the cast. Samantha was probably the worst addition to the cast this year. She's not funny, nothing about her is anything about the 70s, and she's just plain annoying.



    Randy is just as worse, he comes out of nowhere, and starts working with Hyde. Once he came on the show, Laura Prepon got worse and worse. Just everyone in general, it's not the same. Randy is incredibly annoying and not funny, I roll my eyes every time he comes on screen. Josh Meyers, stay on SNL, you don't belong on this show. As for the plot, it's just what you can expect from a season eight episode. Overplayed, exaggerated, and most definitely: not funny.moreless
  • Things change, that is life. Get over it and stop watching if you don't like it. This show still rocks!

    I mean, come on! This show was never called That Eric Show. The actor chose to leave.



    The remaining actors have made it clear in interviews that this season is all about:

    1. Money

    2. The chance to do a lot of wacky things they have always wanted to do.

    3. Basically a spoof on all the shows that jumped the shark.

    4. They wanted to make it to 200 episodes, a rare landmark in TV, especially these days.



    This show has been one of the best in TV history, because they have always stayed true to the show. It is a new sitcom, set in the 70's, and made in the spirit of those shows. It blows away most of the other crap they make these days.



    I mean how many times have you gotten so wrapped up in the show, that you forget it is filmed in current times instead of the 70's?????



    If you do not like the show anymore, you do not deserve to watch it anymore!!



    The 360 is a classic. Hyde thinks it will help him fire Leo, but instead he keeps Leo on and hires the new guy.



    cheers.moreless

  • Leo's in for the eighth season rollercoaster.

    8.1
    This episode is pretty good, with Hyde settling back to work in the record store, which Leo has turned into a drug station, and starting to get used to married life, with great reactions from everyone, especially Kelso wanting to see Hyde's wife's boobs.



    Jackie, Donna and Fez at the bar was also very funny, with interesting plot developments throughout, whether it's Jackie not being as graceful as she had planned, or Fez and Donna's partners for the night being married.



    This episode is hardly a classic, but it is funny, and develops a bond between Hyde and Sam, and Jackie making an embarrassing step forward into being single again.moreless
