Storyline

Kelso is a hero now he has 'done it' and Jackie actually behaves like his devoted lover, almost his love-slave. Red was excessively strict again with Eric for being late to return library books and furious about a single 'No', but the threat of Kitty nagging constantly forces him to try 'becoming friends' so Red joins the boys -still soon taking the wheel himself- who go to a weird wrestling show in Kanosha, two huge stars against a swarm of midgets. Bob still doesn't get why Midge wants some independence despite him being a fine provider, which her therapy sessions and Laurie's selfish example keep making worse, so Bob begs Red to take him along, and wines to poor Fez, while Hyde just tries to get Bob to buy them beers. Even former wrestler Red enjoys the show. Spoilsport Donna begins to convince Jackie teenage boys are always horny, so why be a doormat if you can...? After the show, Red ignores the 'wrestler only' sign on the locker-room and takes Eric along getting an autograph, ... Written by KGF Vissers

Reality deserves rewrite
31 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

Wanted to comment about the so-called goof, which states, "Nobody knew that wrestling was fake until ..." This is simply not true. Many 'real' wrestlers (including judo practitioners) knew it was fake. Plenty of people with little to no wrestling background also knew it was fake. Mr. McMahon's proclamation didn't suddenly enlighten a Nation, as many were enlightened by common sense and through experience. It is not a goof, but a proper depiction of the 'not clueless' state that existed at the time. As always, "The 70's Show" presents a comical presentation of how life really was, and of how people were not clueless, even then. I'm amazed at the great attention the youth in this series receives, when i personally feel it is the antics of the adults that carries the series, with their caricatures of our generation's parents. Growing up in the 70's, we emerged after the Age of Aquarius and before the Age of AIDs, wherein we were being bombarded with threats of nuclear war and glazed over by the events of Vietnam that followed us throughout our childhood, including the repeated shocks in the 60's that we were only marginally aware of. In a time of reversal roles, where the parents were either late in 'tripping' or hardened by the Korean and Vietnam wars, and the youth were coming to grips with their roles in society as the possibility they may actually survive 'another' year began to coalesce, it is gratifying to see a comical rendition. With this series, i am able to step back in time and laugh, instead of cry.
