The series I always find myself going back to in between finishing and starting a hot new series is That ‘70s Show. Even though ten years have passed since the last season ended, it remains relevant because of its dynamite cast. That ‘70s Show follows the everyday lives of a group of high school students growing up in, yep, the ‘70s. The characters have great chemistry and each bring a unique sense of humor to the show. I especially love Kelso and Fez who can be described as the stooges of the show; at the same time Eric’s parents, Kitty and Red Foreman are unlike any television parents I have ever seen. They are so dynamic and hysterical in their over the tops characteristics. Their strong presence and relationship with Eric and the gang make the show feel so authentic.
The daily struggles and shenanigans that the group gets themselves into make me laugh out loud at least once every episode. The show focuses on the parts of adolescence that people remember and reflect upon from time to time. While watching the show, viewers feel like they are part of the gang. From hanging out in Eric Foreman’s basement to riding to Fatso Burger in the Vista Cruiser, the gang’s adventures are hilarious because they are relatable to lots of viewers.
My absolute favorite episode is in season 4 called “That ‘70s Musical.” In this episode Fez is starring in the high school music pageant. Fez starts worrying that the gang isn’t coming to watch, and starts daydreaming about classic songs performed by the whole cast. It’s so over the top and amazing.
