Storyline

Eric Forman is a typical high school student growing up in Wisconsin in 1976 with his family and his friends. Together, they have the same kind of joys and sorrows that just about every teenager has while growing up. This show parodied many of the attitudes, events and fads of the 70s, along with those who grew up at the time. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Eric's G.I. Joe collection (on his bed's bookshelf/headboard) contains: a 1970-73 Land Adventurer, Sea Adventurer, Air Adventurer, The Adventurer (an African American figure), 1964-67 Action Marine, Action Pilot, Action Soldier; 1966 Mercury Space Capsule; there was also a yellow ATV in the basement, seen on one of the shelves under the stairs. The early military figures seemed to have been switched out for the later Adventure Team figures as the series progressed. Eric seemed very attached to his figures, even though he was never seen playing with them. He even warns Fez, "DON'T touch the G.I.Joes!" when Fez tries to cheer up Eric with Hyde and Kelso before leaving for Funland without Eric. See more »

Goofs

Donna justifies taking Kelso's van by reminding Eric that Kelso melted his G.I.Joe figure. Eric says, "The Real American Hero deserves better." G.I. Joe wasn't called "A Real American Hero" until the 1982 re-launch. See more »

the '70s...those were the days
15 May 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I guess that one might say that "That '70s Show" is to the 1990s what "Happy Days" was to the 1970s: a look at how cool things were twenty years earlier in Wisconsin. And they do a great job with it. The characters are: Eric Foreman (Topher Grace), a sometimes clueless high school student; Donna Pinciotti (Laura Prepon), Eric's strong-willed friend; Michael Kelso (Ashton Kutcher), a complete imbecile; Jackie Burkhart (Mila Kunis), the vain, egotistical member of the group; Steven Hyde (Danny Masterson), the cynical member of the group; Fez (Wilmer Valderrama), a foreign exchange student who always tries to be cool; Red (Kurtwood Smith), Eric's hard-ass father; and Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp), Eric's jolly mother.

Tommy Chong occasionally appears as Hyde's stoner boss Leo. Throughout the series, the circle of friends comes across all sorts of situations, which usually end up accentuating Kelso's stupidity or Hyde's distrust of authority. Oftentimes, they assess everything through popular culture (namely disco or any TV show that had existed up to that point). But no matter what happens, it's always safe to assume that Red will threaten to kick someone in the ass, or at least call someone a dumb-ass.

Either way, it's a great show. You gotta see it.
