Oh man. You know which old TV show rocks? Yup, That 70s Show. One of my favourite things to do is hire an entire TV series on DVD and just watch them and bf and I have just started watching the first season of That 70s Show, which I didn’t see from the very beginning when it was on TV.
If you’re interested in checking it out, there’s this awesome website with a detailed episode guide, plus it’s got clips from the show, cast info, gallery and all that good stuff.
Reasons it rocks:
#1 There are, like, 8 seasons to watch, man! And each season has about 20 episodes… I’m no genius, but that seems like a pretty decent number.
#2 The clothes. Whether you’re into Starsky jackets/man cardi’s, bellbottoms, rock’n’roll t-shirts, leisure suits, or hippie blouses, the 70s were the decade for you.
#3 Debra Jo Rupp as Eric’s mum, Kitty. That woman cracks me up!!! She does a wicked job as a 50’s housewife who loves fondue “fundue” and making punch. Whenever someone makes a daggy, unfunny joke now I hear her laugh in my head. Also, her hairstyle in the first season is so rad.
#4 Those moments when you’re watching and you go “oh yeah! Remember [insert random nostalgic memory from “back in the day” here] ?!” For example all the shops being closed on Christmas Eve, family dinners, cassette tapes.
#5 I love that me and my bf can both watch it and find it funny and entertaining.
#6 The way that although it’s set in the 70s, the kids are pretty much the same as today. I love it when someone’s like “C’mon man, this is the 70s!” Like, “Our technology is so modern and our society so advanced!”
#7 The whole “gang”. Ya love them, and some (*cough* Red, Laurie *cough*) you love to hate.
#8 The theme song. I dare you not to sing along by the 3rd episode. (“HELLO WISCONSIN!”)
#9 The scenes around the basement table. Remember how there’d be like 4 (stoned) people around the table with the camera in the middle and it swivels around as each person talks? Genius.
#10 Because I said so. …ok, this isn’t a real reason. But I think everyone should give it a chance!!
