While the whole basement bunch meanly joins in with the school-wide ridiculing of poor Kelso, who made a painful fall in the canteen hurting the inside of his soiled trousers, constantly calling him ...
The Banks family, a respectable Californian family, take in a relative - Will Smith, a street-smart teenager from Philadelphia. The idea is to make him respectable, responsible and mature, but Will has got other plans...
Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
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

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 »
In the Show, Eric turns 17 years old in 1976, placing his birthday in 1959. However, the crew doesn't graduate High School apparently until 1979, placing all of the characters at 20 years old at time of graduation See more »

It's OK, Eric. So... You got rid of them all?
That's too bad... You know what? I could have a naked girl in this room in 10 seconds.
Great. Send her in, I'll see you later.

I didn't start to watch "That '70s show" until about a year or so ago and I sure wish that I would have started tuning in a lot earlier. This series is really funny, really different, and has an amazing cast.
In my opinion, this is one of the best casts assembled in a long time. Everybody makes me laugh (especially Eric and Fez). All of the characters are likable and each actor puts in that little something each week that is needed to make a television series survive. Topher Grace is really great and I still can't believe that he didn't have any acting experience prior to this show. That's one of the best things about this show - all of the actors really had no acting gigs and just fell into the roles immediately.
The writers are extremely funny. Although the writing is simple at times, it's unpredictable the next, and that's what I like. Each episode has good scenarios/plots and always makes me laugh.
Everything about it is good and it's not the same as all of the other shows that are currently on TV. It stands out with an excellent cast (and an excellent theme song. That thing gets stuck in my head so easily.) I like the seventies, I like this show, but was "That '80s Show" really necessary?
