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 ...
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

A noticeable goof is that many times over the course of the series, Ashton Kutcher has been seen wearing Nike shoes that were only available in the mid to late 1980s. The show's timeline only went from May 1976 to January 1980. CORRECTION: This is not a goof, as the original poster for this message was misinformed of the facts prior to posting. The shoes in question DID exist in the timeline presented on this show. See more »
In the opening scene of the premiere episode, the boys are looking at a Playboy centerfold, circa 1976. However, the magazine is perfect bound, not saddle stitched (stapled) as Playboys were at that time. See more »
In the opening credits for the Halloween episode in 2000, the title song has creepy organ music playing along with it. Also the actors names appear in a "spooky" font. See more »
During the original FOX run, the episodes featured a lot of music from that time-line. However, in order to avoid paying royalties, most of the music was changed with generic music starting with syndication airings, and these changes remained on the DVD and Blu-ray releases. See more »
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?
