The Keg ****1/2
28 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Original Air Date: October 25th, 1998

What do you do when you find a keg of beer in the middle of the street? You sacrifice a virgin to the gods! No, wait...that can't be right. Actually, the correct answer is: take it to a vacant house and have a party in the empty backyard pool! Based on this simple premise, another chapter in the scrawny little neighbor boy/saucy redhead next door saga unfolds beautifully. Between passing notes and cutting class, the monotony of everyday routine is broken up by this exciting discovery; what can only be described as the equivalent to the holy grail of tantalizing teenage fantasy.

As evidenced by this show, beer can make people do some strange things. It can turn Kelso into a mathematical genius or transform Eric into a hose-swinging macho man, though one of the real highlights of this episode actually takes place back at the Forman residence. When Red and Bob get wind of the situation and go out looking for the party, Kitty and Midge get drunk off daiquiris while watching "Rich Man, Poor Man" and share a few too many details about their personal lives with each other. This is the kind of one-on-one interaction that makes "That '70s Show" such a memorable fascination. Not only can the writers of the show pull off purely kinetic comic mishaps on grand scales, they can also pay attention to littler details that ensure not a moment of this twenty-two minute installment is wasted. Overall, "The Keg" is just one more magnificent monument in this sitcom's lasting legacy.
