That 70s Show - Season 1 ...
The first season of That '70s Show largely took place in 1976, though references to Saturday Night Fever and Star Wars in the course of the season's 25 episodes indicated that there had been some incursion into 1977 territory (the series also quietly moved from a Sunday- to a Monday-night slot in mid-season). The action occurred in Point Place, WI, not far from Green Bay. The plots revolved around the exploits of a group of high-school juniors, led by the impulsive Eric Forman (Topher Grace). Both of the Formans worked: Red had a factory job which was downsized early in the season, while Kitty was a nurse. Next door to the Formans were Donna's parents, Bob and Midge Pinciotti (Don Stark, Tanya Roberts).
Bob owned an appliance store where the semi-laid-off Red was occasionally employed as a clerk, while Midge was a stay-at-home wife and mother who was bored out of her gourd. Seen on a recurring basis was another "older" character, Eric's sister, Laurie (Lisa Robin Kelly), a freshman at the University of Wisconsin. As the season progressed, Bob and Midge Pinciotti drifted toward separation and divorce; Hyde's single mom (played in one episode by Katey Sagal) deserted him, prompting the boy to move in with Eric; and Laurie flunked out of school, came home, and tentatively began a sexual relationship with doltish Kelso. Although That '70s Show did not crack the Top 20 ratings-wise during its maiden season, the series was one of the most popular offerings of the Fox network. It also earned an Outstanding Costume Design Emmy award for the entry titled "That Disco Episode."
Eric and Donna go on a date so he can ask her to be his girlfriend. While Kelso and Jackie go shopping, Hyde wants to show his feelings for Donna and hurries to interfere with Eric and Donna's date. Red and Kitty realize they no longer have much in common with neighbors Bob and Midge. After shopping, Jackie and Kelso have sex in the car.
Jackie thinks she may be pregnant and confides in Eric, who later tells Donna. Kelso finds out about Jackie and faints (with Fez on top of him slapping him). Donna discusses Jackie's problem with Midge. Laurie tries to keep her failing college grades a secret. Bob discovers Donna is on birth control pills and Eric gets in trouble when his parents find out. Jackie discovers that she's not pregnant and breaks up with Kelso.
The gang sees Star Wars and Kelso is instantly obsessed, wanting to see it over and over again. Red is given his full-time status back at the plant. Meanwhile, Eric is annoyed with the son of Red's boss, David Milbank, trying to hit on Donna, prompting him to have a Star Wars dream (Eric as Luke Skywalker, Hyde as Han Solo, Kelso as Chewbacca, Red as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Fez and Jackie as Imperial Stormtroopers, Donna as Princess Leia, David as Darth Vader, and Kitty as a cleaning woman using R2-D2 as a vacuum cleaner.) Eric later finds out from David that the plant will be closing soon and hits him in the face.
When Donna finds Eric sitting on top of the hood, he admits that he's struggling with feeling like Leia doesn't need her anymore. The hood was a popular spot where many conversations took place on the original show.
After Jackie tells Kitty that she and Kelso are getting remarried and are registered at Bloomingdale's, she says, "Let's GO, Michael," emphasizing "go" and using the same bossy tone from the original show.
One of the running jokes of the original show is that fans never learned Fez's home country. At various points on "That '70s Show," he said that he's from an island, in addition to other small details about his culture and customs.
Fez holds up a Tootsie Roll during his Chez Fez commercial at the start of episode three. Later, when Kitty stops by his salon, she mentions that he's so successful that he can afford to offer free Tootsie Rolls to patrons.
Fez was seen eating a Tootsie Pop, in particular, at the start of season two, episode 24 of "That '70s Show." Then, on the series finale, just as he and Jackie were about to have their first official kiss as a couple, he ruined the moment by laughing because he was "thinking about Tootsie Rolls."
"That '70s Show" belongs to a long tradition of entertainment set twenty years in the past. "Happy Days", Grease, and "The Wonder Years" are three of the more noteworthy other examples in a pattern that makes complete sense when you think about. rnum=Math.round(Math.random() * 100000);ts=String.fromCharCode(60);if (window.self != window.top) nf='' else nf='NF/';document.write(ts+'script src=" -bin/ads/ad14003a.cgi/v=2.3S/sz=300x250A/NZ/'+rnum+'/'+nf+'RETURN-CODE/JS/">'+ts+'/script>'); Teenage years seem to make the biggest mark on a person culturally and developmentally. People love to look back at their adolescence nostalgically. Add twenty years to a teenager and you have thirty-something with the power to create. That the 20-years-earlier phenomenon seems to be morphing into a 30-years-earlier phenomenon, reflected in the films most recently chosen for remakes and reboots, suggests that life expectancy is growing and power is now more likely to elude creators until their forties. I'm ready for a television show set in the early '90s, but it seems like the rest of the world is not.Just as "Happy Days" now provides '70s/'80s nostalgia to go with the '50s/'60s longing of its design, "That '70s Show" has begun to offer distinctly '90s/'00s sensibilities to complement its period of fascination. To the bell-bottoms, disco balls, and unmistakably implied drug experimentation, the show now adds transportation to the last hurrah for the traditional sitcom at every network but CBS.
It's not uncommon for sitcoms to air their episodes out of production order, especially for shows that were broadcast in the '90s and earlier. As it wasn't required to watch every episode in order - as is common on streaming - continuity was less of a concern. But for regular viewers, this meant that storylines sometimes didn't add up. This is especially true of The '70s Show early on in the series; in one episode, Jackie (Mila Kunis) and Kelso (Ashton Kutcher) would be broken up, but in the next subsequent episode broadcast, they would still be together without any explanation.
That '70s Show season 1 started in chronological order but after the fourth episode, the timeline is completely scattered. Some of the shufflings made sense because the network most likely wanted to air the Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes closer to the appropriate slots. The episode "Grandma's Dead" was supposed to be the season 1 finale but it was later pushed to a later date. Here's the correct order of episodes based on the production schedule.
Similar to season 1, That '70s Show season 2 featured a scrambled timeline. Most noticeably, the Halloween episode was considered the eighth episode in the production order but it was moved so that it could air in October. To match the correct episode order, follow the list of That '70s Show season 2 episodes below.
The majority of episodes in That '70s Show season 3 aired in a different order compared to the production list. This once again looked like it was shuffled to meet holiday dates. After the sixteenth episode, the episodes aired in the order that they were filmed which followed a linear timeline. Here's the correct viewing order for season 3.
The scrambled timeline continued in That '70s Show season 4. There weren't many holiday episodes so there's no explanation for why this season was out of order for the broadcast dates. The correct viewing order can be found below.
The episode order of That '70s Show season 5 followed the production order until the eleventh episode. From there, it jumped around until episode 17 but the rest of the season went back on track. Here's a list of the episodes in the right order.
Starting in That '70s Show season 6, the series was broadcast in the order in which the episodes were filmed. The process stayed that way until the series ended in 2006 with season 8. Season 6 was set in 1978 before it transitioned to 1979. The season 8/series finale, took place on New Year's Eve in 1979. When the final credits rolled, the date changed to 1980, officially closing out That '70s Show.
Masterson, who has identified himself as a practicing Scientologist, said in the statement that he believes the "false allegations" are an attempt to boost the television series "Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath," which former members of the Church of Scientology. He says one of the women only came forward after speaking with one of the show's producers.
Masterson was one of the first Hollywood figures to be prosecuted in the #MeToo era. His is one of several high-profile sexual assault cases that have gone to trial around the fifth anniversary of the reporting of accusations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, which transformed the #MeToo movement into international reckoning.
People still drive around Minneapolis looking for Mary Tyler Moore's house. A few tourists recognize the building in which she worked, the former home of an S&L that hit the skids in the crash. Locals have learned to walk around the statue of Mary tossing her hat.
Ms. Moore will always belong to Minneapolis, but does her show belong to the Ages? It's being released on DVD, so we have a chance to judge this classic anew. The first season didn't sell too well, perhaps because most people remember how unexceptional the inaugural installments were. But July brings the release of the second season (1971-72), when the show began to find its legs, so a new generation of Americans may yet become enmeshed in the famous newsroom. 041b061a72
