  • Eric and Donna hold out on each other.

    6.9
    This was a silly, and out of character episode of That 70's Show. Instead of his consistently funny, angry behavior, Red Forman was "nice" so that people would show up at his funeral. We also had a brutal storyline where Eric and Donna held out on sex with each other. Although it resulted in the always enjoyable split-screen conversations, anything Donna does is horrible.



    The episode wasn't entirely bad though. Midge, in the minute she was in was funny as usual. We had Kelso greatness where he thought he was a UFO, and a great guest appearane by Leo. Red cracking and changing his ways was a good payoff and ended in a classic line, "When I die, I want to be buried face down, so that way, whoever doesn't like me can kiss my ass!"



    While this would be a strong episode by other sitcom standards, this was a weak offering for one of the top 15 sitcoms of all-time.moreless
  • Eric and Donna don't have sex.

    A really good episode. The humor was really good, and there was good timing for all of the jokes, and it got deep (not really :P) deep into some of the show's characters.



    Eric and Donna, after an argument, make a bet, and don't have sex with each other. While doing so, both of them go absolutely insane. Kelso is totally convinced that he has photogrpaphed a U.F.O (Unidentified Flying Object), and he will not listen to what any one of his friends in the gang says about the matter. Meanwhile, Red decides that he will throw a party to make friends.



    A perfect episode. One of the really strong episodes in the show.

  • Donna & Eric hold out.

    10
    This episode is hilarious, I would love to see a "Cold War" like this. My favorite part is when they're trying to make each other cave. When Donna dresses hot! Then Eric blows in her ear. That was so funny. I like the B plot a lot. Red has a change of life, I like how Red is in the coffin in fantasy #2 & Kitty says that his funeral is a big hit! I didn't like the C plot much, them looking for UFO's but a surprising twist at the end, Kelso takes pictures of himself naked! Amazingly hysterically funny!moreless
  • Red being nice to people was just not like him.

    7.5
    This was a pretty good episode and I give it a B for it. Kelso claming he saw a UFO was cool. Hyde making up the excuse that he was telling Fez that Kelso was dumb was real funny. Eric and Donna having too many study breaks and Eric losing his underwear was real funny too. Red calling Fez Sabu was strange. Reds near death experience was funny after he almost got crushed by a tree Bob was cutting down in his back yard. Donna acting like a cavewoman to Eric was a riot. Kelso stripping his clothes off down to his underwear was very weird.moreless
  • UFO theories, Donna vs Eric, Red's near-death experience

    10
    One of the reasons why season three is one of the best seasons is episodes like this one with two hilarious plots involving sex deprivation and UFOs. This episode has a great split scene conversation with both Hyde and Jackie mentioning that if Eric caves, Donna owns him and the hilarious scene with Hyde, Kelso, Fez and Leo are looking at the sky, Leo explaining about the time he saw a UFO at the football game which told him he’d have a good year (“Wait a minute, Good Year! That was a terrible year man!”)



    The study breaks were great, Eric and Donna actually being in a closet at one stage and both trying desperately not to cave with hilarious results.



    Any 70s Show fan would love this episode because it has one of the funniest fights ever and of course a stupid Kelso plot with a great ending, the pictures of him naked being in the same film as the proof that planes can fly.

    • Hyde: Kelso, remember that time you thought you saw the abominable snowman?
      Kelso: Yeah.
      Hyde: Do you remember what it turned out to be?
      Kelso: Just a regular snowman.

    • Bob: Red I'm so sorry. It was an accident.
      Red: I never thought I would say this. I'm glad you're my friend.
      (Red hugs Bob)
      Bob: Red, I never thought I would say this. You smell nice.

    • Kitty: Well Red Forman, I never heard you use fun, friends and party all in the same sentence.
      Hyde: Wait, here's one, "Hey Eric, I sure had fun ruining that party you had for you and your friends."
      Red: That was fun.

    • Leo: I saw a UFO once. It was in the air with a message in big bright yellow letters. It told me to 'Have A Good Year.'
      (the guys try not to laugh)
      Hyde: Hey Leo, by any chance was this at a football game?
      Leo: Yeah, I was the only one freaking out about it. Wait a minute, good year? It was a terrible year, man.

    • (Hyde is building a mountain out of mashed potatoes on his dinner plate)
      Hyde: This means something, this is important.
      Kitty: Well, this is a close encounter of the potato kind!

      Hyde's mountain of mashed potatoes mimics Richard Dreyfuss's actions in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977). Later on, when the guys are lying in the field watching the sky, they also mimic the music from the movie.
