It's impossible for me to watch this show without thinking about how much its declined. It used to be a show about a boy and his friends coming of age. The boy is now gone and his friends have no lives. This episode features a mix of repetive story lines (like the Hyde/Jackie/Kelso love triangle) and absurdity (Hyde and the stripper). The charm of the show left with Topher Grace.
The biggest problem with this episode is it was too long. The whole thing could have happened in 30 minutes and it would have been more amusing. It's not that this is a horrible show, it's just one in decline. It pales in comparrison to its former self. That said, I was amused with Charlie's death because he was a poor character to begin with. Aside from that, this episode was largely forgetable and unentertaining.
