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 infamous poster of Farrah Fawcett in a red swimsuit hangs in Eric Foreman's bedroom. Tanya Roberts (Midge) starred in season five of "Charlie's Angels," the TV show that launched Fawcett's career. Roberts joked that if "That 70's Show" ran through 1980, her poster would eventually hang in Eric's room. See more »

Goofs

The poster showing world flags in Eric's room has some flags of countries that didn't exist in the 70s (e.g. Estonia and Georgia). See more »

The Most Complete Show
26 September 2005 | by (THAILAND, BANGKOK) – See all my reviews

From the very first episode That '70s Shows delivered a very consisting humor and is definitely without a doubt in one's mind that this is one of the funniest show ever created.

Brief: That '70s Shows tell us the life of six teenagers living in Wisconsin through the hippie period.

This is without doubt the birthplace of six young talented actors such as Ashton Kutcher, and is considered to be the show with the best cast (consider this is their first acting carrier). The story really captured the sense of the '70s brilliantly and how funky it is to be in that period.

Not just that, That '70s Shows also have a brilliant humor throughout and the directing is very original and smart. For me, I think it going to be damn hard to dislike the show.

Recommendation: One Of The Most Complete Show, I Have Ever See.

Rating: 9/10 (Grade: A+)
