That 70s Show

Series Suggestion – That 70s Show – A unique sitcom in the fact that it is completely analog. There isn’t a cell phone or laptop to be seen and it is incredibly refreshing. There are instantly quotable lines in many episodes and it creates a feeling of familiarity with the cast like you’re just hanging out with em.

Eric Forman lives in the middle of Wisconsin with his best friends Donna, Kelso, Hyde, Fez, and Jackie. Together they get up to all sorts of hijinks under the watchful eyes of his parents, Red and Kitty Forman. Hiding in the basement or out on the road, the gang grows up and gets into every situation possible in the 70s.

That 70s Show is hilarious. That’s the best word I can use to describe it. There are so many iconic scenes and instantly quotable lines from pretty much any episode. The show does fall off after the 7th season as the cast begins to break up and the legacy is soured a bit from some cast members’ inexcusable misconduct but don’t let that put you off from enjoying the first few seasons at least. There’s something almost homey and cozy about the environment of That 70s Show and it’s because it’s completely analog. There’s not a cell phone in sight and for those of us born in the cell phone era like myself, it’s almost like a look into the past to see what it was like for my parents growing up.

Unfortunately, the only way to watch That 70s Show is to rent it episode by episode on Prime Video.
