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

The producers and cast spent a lot of time figuring out a way to represent the main characters' usage of marijuana (not in a pro-pot manner, but to have realism on a 1970's-set show) and eventually came up with the "rotating camera" sequences set in the Formans' basement, which showed the effects of the "puff and pass" where each character inhaled and then sent a joint forward, but never actually showed anyone doing either of those things.

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 »

[her dress slides down]
Jackie Burkhardt: 'Cause if anyone should be the center of attention it's me!
Donna Pinciotti: Jackie!
Jackie Burkhardt: [as Donna tries twice to pull Jackie's dress back up, Jackie slaps her hand away] Get off me!
[Donna then whispers in her ear]
Jackie Burkhardt: What the hell is a "boobsout"?

Most Underrated Sitcom
19 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the funniest and greatest sitcom to hit national television. Its unfortunate that the show is not placed amongst great sitcoms where it truly belongs. The actors did a superb job and seasons one thru six were the show at its peak point. Although season seven was not as great when compared to the previous six, it was still funny. Season 8 was the real problem kicked in. Without Topher grace or Ashton Kutcher the show simply fell apart. Not too say, the other actors weren't great if any of 2 main characters had left such as Danny Masterson, Wilder Valderamma Kurtwood Smith, Debra Jo Rupp, Mila Kunis and Laura Prepon ( Don Starks and tommy Chong are great too) left the show it would have the same affect. And the inclusion of Randy ( Josh Meyers) didn't help either because he was not well received by the shows fans. I believe if the show ended a year ago it would have certainly gone down in history as one of the sitcom greats. Season 8 was a little dull but the finale was excellent. I am going to miss the show, i just hope i wake up one day to find out the show is back as That 80's show with the same cast because i am going to miss the hell out of it.
