Did You Know?


During Season 6, Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher wanted to leave the series, but decided to stay on for season 7, which was supposed to be the final season. But Fox decided to go on and make Season 8 without either cast member. The characters of Eric and Kelso were written out of the show. Fox brought in a new character named Randy to take their place. With two of the most popular characters gone, 'That 70s Show''s ratings heavily dropped and Fox was forced to end the show. But Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher still decided to return for the final episode of the series. See more »


In the final episode the actual date - December 31st, 1979 - falls on a Monday, but Donna says she cannot stick around to hang out because school starts on Monday, which makes the date inaccurate. See more »


[Final lines of the series]
Eric: Hey guys, last one upstairs has to call Red a dumbass!
[the gang rushes upstairs. Hyde grabs Kelso and makes him the last left behind]
Michael Kelso: Oh, man...
[Kelso wears the "Stupid Helmet" and goes upstairs. Meanwhile, everyone count loudly from 10 to 1. The license plate at the end of the closing credits finally switches from '79 to '80]

Sentimental Journey
20 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a great ending. Not just an ending of the show. For someone like myself, it was very symbolic. Growing up as a teen in the seventies. I was able to relate to the music, the politics of the day, the fashions , entertainment in general etc. It was truly a blast from the past. This episode was the 70's in a nutshell for the gang. The good, the bad and all the rest. It brought up the emotions of this group of teens and mixed with series flashbacks culminated in a fine episode. It was how these kids grew up from awkward adolescents to become young adults and move forward. This episode was a celebration of this particular decade. Having growing up at this time, it probably hits a middle aged guy like myself more than say someone younger or perhaps even older. I thought it was clever that the 70s was treated as something fragile. The ending perfect. The countdown and than before the HAPPY NEW YEAR into 80.... Just like that show over. Very well done and actually quite sad that this time period is just a fond memory for this gang and for dweebs like myself. Love the final touch with the expiration 80 on the license plate.
