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

Lisa Robin Kelly, who played Laurie when the show debuted, abruptly vanished following the second season and was cut from the opening credits by the start of season 3. Some sources claim she left on her own initiative, others that she was fired despite being quite a popular character on the show, so there are two very different stories out there about her departure. She returned back to the show toward the end of the fifth season and appeared in a few episodes, only to disappear again at the beginning of the sixth season and then replaced by Christina Moore.

Goofs

In the January 14 2003 episode, Eric holds up Star Wars action figures for Red to identify. The figures he holds up are not the straight-armed figures from the 1970s, but are the posed figures from the 1990s. The episode takes place in 1979. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the opening credits of the episode where Fez dreams about the cast singing and dancing to some of the 70's most well known songs, the names of the cast members are in silver and two searchlights go across each name. Also, two searchlights go across the license plate at the end of the opening. See more »

A winner for FOX
1 October 2000 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

This show is one of my favorites. I just started watching it last week when Fox aired an episode every night of the week. I cannot believe I've been missing this show! It's one of the funniest shows I have seen in a long time. Tho, I'm no fan of the 70's as a decade, the show makes me wanna go back and live it all again...wait I was born in 1978, so forget that idea. Anyhow...the show follows the lives of a group of 17 year- olds in the 70's and everything they do is hilarious. I love the character of Fez, who happens to be foreign, and he's sorta the dork of the show. He tries to be cool and catch all the fads of the time, but he never seems to get it right, and he's always after Jackie, played by the beautiful Mila Kunis. As for Jackie, the relationship between her and her boyfriend is classic. The guy is a total idiot, and she's almost as dippy as he is...As for Eric, who is the male lead, and Donna- his girlfriend, they are so sweet together...if I do say so myself. They are the perfect couple on the show, and I'm shocked they're acting, they do the couple thing so well! The show is like a lot of comedies, but it's got an edge most shows don't. I love the shots where the camera rotates around the table, showing all the guys talking...it's a staple of almost every episode. Check this show out if you haven't had a chance, or chose to ignore it!!
