That 70's Show Season One

Centring primarily on perennial good guy Eric Foreman (Topher Grace) and set in the 1970s (Duh!) That ‘70’s Show follows the lives of a group of friends as they grow up, dealing with love, sex, family and their budding futures; all done through the nostalgic haze of ‘70’s culture and played for over the top laughs. 

The strength of That ‘70s Show is the cast – both young and old - that bring their somewhat clichéd characters to life.  Grace and Prepon (as love interest Donna) play straight-men to their outlandish friends, Ashton Kutcher as the idiot egomaniac Kelso, his girlfriend the annoying Jackie (Mila Kunis), Exchange student Fez (Wilmer Valderrama) and bad boy Hyde (Danny Masterton).  The characters of Fez and Hyde provide most of the laughs, Fez because of his clueless ness of American customs, and Hyde because he is able to cut through any situation with a biting sarcastic wit.   

As good as the young cast is they are often upstaged by the actors playing their parents, Kurtwood Smith as Eric’s stubborn grumpy father Red Forman easily the standout.  However Debra Jo Rupp as Eric’s nutty mother Kitty gives him a run for his money.  Their interactions with Donna’s idiot parents Bob (Don Stark) and Midge (Tanya Roberts) are always fun to watch - if only to watch the contempt on Red’s face whenever Bob opens his mouth. 

The ‘70s setting does allow for many laughs to be had at the expense of the fashions, attitudes (hilarious re-dubbed educational videos) and events of the time, with a laugh out loud moment guaranteed almost every episode (Kelso’s interpretation of Eric’s Sister’s speech is particularly hilarious).  If you are after something different than “hanging out, down the street, the same old thing you did last week” look no further than a couple of hours watching That 70’s Show

A smattering of special features are included; a behind the scenes and trivia featurette plus promo spots.
