  • It's a Halloween to remember, or not to remember, for a lot of the cast of That '70s Show.

    Here's one of those episodes that really has nothing to do with the rest of the series, like most holiday-themed episodes in not just this series, but most drama television shows out there. It was still pretty good, though. It starts out with Eric chasing Fez after he has stolen his super ball in his own Halloween women's clothes. He goes up on the roof and Eric follows him. They both lose their footing, which presents a life-or-death situation for Eric. He finds himself dangling from the gutter of the roof while Fez goes down immediately: trying to fly. He lands himself in a wheelchair with a sprained leg or something of the sort. While it seems like Fez got the short end of the stick here, Eric is tramautized after the accident and keeps fainting in the arms of Hyde in this episode. Turns out that Eric tries to conquer his fear although he doesn't want to. Donna leads him up to the top of the water tower trying to make him think that she's exciting. (This is after a comment in the beginning of the episode that Eric doubts he and Donna can do anything fun; Donna thinks he's talking about sexually, while Eric tries to make her believe that he was talking about in general in the town of Point Place, which he really is trying to say) He gets scared and nearly falls off the water tower until Donna saves his life and pulls him back aboard, but then he trips again trying to get over the railing and this time, really goes down hard. This is unrealistic. If the water tower was even at only ten feet tall, Eric landed straight on his back. Although this is my favorite show, I still have to admit they are kind of bad treating the injuries suffered my the characters. Meanwhile, the other gang have some crazy adventures in the episode, too. Fez is spying inside the house of the Pinciotti's. He hopes to see Midge undressing in the window, but gets suspicious when Bob is pulling a heavy sack of garbage, has blood on his apron, and is carrying a large knife. He comes to the conclusion of thinking Bob killed Midge. Hyde falls for it, too, and he goes over to investigate, while Fez watches through the window, still disabled. Bob finds out and comes over to the Formans' house and explains the whole situation. Meanwhile, Kitty tries to feed a bunch of birds while a friend is out of town, and gets scared by them, so she sends Laurie out there, who gets scared, too. Kelso has some misfortunes with the Formans' paper boy. The Formans have refused to pay the paper boy and Kelso gets mistaken for a Forman, so the paper boy finally takes down Kelso and steals the money for the bill from his wallet. So, obviously it was an eventful, and forgettable Halloween.
