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 ...
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

Jackie (Mila Kunis) and Kelso (Ashton Kutcher) were one of the show's main couples. In 2012, six years after the end of this show, Kunis and Kutcher started dating in real life as well. In 2014, Kunis had the couple's first child. They got married in July 2015. See more »
Several times in the series when donuts are present, they are in a Krispy Kreme box, but Krispy Kreme donuts did not come to Wisconsin until the 2000's. 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 »
Unlike the 70s sitcom it sometimes mocks (Happy Days), this show has no peaks and valleys, and never "jumped the shark". It's just a rock solid, funny show and has been for the duration of its run (so far). I have watched just about every episode since the beginning, and have never been let down. It's an extremely underrated show which could reach ledgendary status if it runs for a few more years. Everyone in the cast is very funny and endearing in their own way. The best thing is that they never stray from the original characterizations. And you never doubt for a minute that you're back in the seventies, unlike Happy Days, which was set in the 50s yet much of the cast (Scott Baio anyone?) sported contemporary haircuts. This show is a gem. Watch. You won't be disappointed.
