Same here, newhook, and no.  They drug the four years the series took place in out to about seven or eight seasons, and ended the series on New Year's Eve '79.  Yes, I watched the series finale, even though I stopped watching about three or four years ago.  I think I even have it on tape somewhere.

Besides what Nerd-o said, there was a spin-off based on the 80's (That 80's Show). It lasted one season. I love That 70's Show, I think it's hilarious.

I have watched all (nearlly) the episodes of That 70's Show and I love it. I love how Eric is always getting blammed and Red's one liners and some of Michael stuff is good too.

I saw like 10 seconds of That 80's Show and I wanted to kill my self. It sucks more than a...vampire on...halloween?

The older episodes are like seasons 1-3 or something and at the moment they are showing season 6. I think later she gets with Fez but I haven't seen that far yet. It might not be true.

I think it was supposed to be like two seasons in a year or something. So they make 8 seasons which is supposed to be 4 years.

I've never seen it. Did they use the same actors (and producers) of That 70s Show or was it different completely?

I think it lasted way shorter than one season.

Thirteen episodes, ten of which aired before it was cancelled.  Thank you, Wikipedia.

Cyberphobia: than why does every season have its own holiday shows (for Christmas and Halloween, and usually Thanksgiving)?  Why does Eric only get two years older?  (Thank you AGAIN, Wikipedia).  It's a M*A*S*H effect; the timeline's all wonky because the show lasted longer than its subject.  The best response is to just go with it.

And I still want to know why Foreman had a Boba Fett action figure in that one episode.

That 80's Show apparently alluded to That 70's Show on occasion and had the same producers, but a different cast and writing staff.  Wiki.

I really liked That 80s Show. I don't know why but I did. It wasn't even funny. I guess I just like bad TV shows.

I've got Seasons 1, 2, 3 of That 70s Show. I like it. Even the newer episodes are still better than watching the News or some other lame show. I missed a whole lot in the middle because I didn't have a TV for ages but I'm slowly getting my way around it. I'd like to see the whole thing up to the finale - for closure. Once I get hooked on a TV show I must see every episode and know everything. Like my X-Files and I Love Lucy obsessions... Gawd.

The last 2 seasons were complete shit, it just got really boring, especially the whole Eric/Donna and Jackie/Hyde relationships, and it was just unwatchable when Eric left

Here's a short interview of Topher Grace (Eric Foreman) about the timeline of the show.

Personally?  I think the show was ruined when Laura Prepon dyed her hair.  But then, I have a redhead fixation.

She did look better with red hair. It suited her. And by dying it blonde, it like makes her seem more like a 'dumb blonde' type, when that doesn't suit Donna's tomboy personality. Donna was more one of those 'don't go with the flow', 'happy with who she is', individual type people and dying her hair blonde is against that image. It might have be okay if she was a natural blonde.

I agree on both accounts. I don't like the blonde Donna. Not as cool. And I don't like the seasons without Eric and Kelso. Not nearly as funny. Especially the way the show ended. Jackie ended up with Fez? Really lame. I liked her when she was with Hyde.

Actually, I didn't mind the arguable out-of-characterness of the blonde hair.  Partly because I had actually stopped watching before that.  I mostly just think Laura Prepon looks fugly with it.

Maybe not "fugly" so much as "like every other actress in this damn country."

Exactly my thought when I catched a few episodes the other day. Whoever told her it was a good idea needs a good smack upside his head. I bet it's those stupid Scientologists! Redhead Laura was hot, blonde Laura ... umm.. less hot.

Danny Masterton (the guy who plays Hyde) is a scientologist so that's actually possible.

I actually don't find her attractive at all. Doesn't matter what color her hair is.

I don't mind her blonde hair... but the red was way better. But really, does her hair matter that much?

Yes! Duh! Hair is the most important thing to a girl next to make up and guys buying us stuff!

Ok, that was my really bad Jackie impersonation.

I think her hair is really pretty in season 6 when it's red but has a few subtle blonde highlights and it all layered. I wanna get my hair like that but in brown form. But her hair is better than mine because hers seems naturally straight. I have to use a straightener!

Yeah Donna seemed the type that dosen't care about their hair to me.

I liked it at first too, but they blew their load way too early. They built up tension and then put the two main characters together after all of what? 4 episodes? Imagine if Fry and Leela were going out by Love's Labors Lost in Space. It just doesn't work, you have to build up to it.

I haven't seen enough episodes/reviews to notice subtle changes in Donna's hair, I just have seen comparison pictures.
Yay for my experience of five episodes!
I seriously need to borrow/buy dvds and catch up... but due to the fact that I live so far away from the city that the nearest copy is probably an hour or two drive away.

Hey, does anyone know: Donna and Eric never ended up getting married, did they?

No. Eric left her at the rehersal dinner because he thought if they got married he'd be holding her back from going to college.

And still being on the show would be holding him back from starring in Win a Date with Tad Hamilton.

I just googled the movie and watched the trailer, and Topher's acting in it is exactly the same as his acting on That 70s Show. Like it seems to nearly be the same character his playing. His got the whole sarcastic smartarse comedy thing going like he does when he plays Eric.

2007 was the last post, what?!

Wish Topher never left the show, it went downhill afterwards D: Although I did like his brief appearances in Oceans 12 and 13

It's actually Ocean's 11 and 12 that he cameoed in (and his cameo in 12 is amazingly fantastic).

Personally I like the first 4 seasons I guess. When Eric and Donna get engaged I like the episodes less and less. It wouldn't have mattered to me if TG had left or not because the show wasn't as good as it had been by the time he did leave.

Oops, obviously need to watch that again.

Also liked his role in Spiderman 3 - although it was weird seeing him being the bad guy.

I liked it up until Topher left, you know me, I was in it for the shippy. No Eric, No Eric/Donna.
