Subject: That 70s' Show take on the 80s

Written By: ChuckyG on 9/26/2001 at 7:15 a.m.

anyone else notice any errors in last night's show?

most notable for me: It's 1989, Fez is singing "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" which was 3 years old at that point. It's a 10 year class reunion, shouldn't he be playing 70s tunes? They also played "Careless Whisper" by Wham in the same scene. Maybe that was supposed to be the joke though, Fez is constantly behind the curve, even more-so at this point.

I didn't notice anything else though.. wasn't a bad episode, but it wasn't as great as one could have hoped for. The show is definitely going downhill in my opinion, though I'm not sure of what I would consider the "Jump the Shark" moment..

I loved it, but I noticed that it might have been taped and/or written after the second episode. The second episode has no mention of the dream (the angel made Eric forget, but that could have been done later), and would have made a good premiere itself. Maybe they're getting the viewers ready for "That '80s Show".

I'm afraid it is getting close to "jumping the shark", if it hasn't already. I don't watch much TV besides "That '70s Show", and it's sad to think that might happen. Breaking up the main couple is "shark-jumping" material for sure.

Their relationship is my favorite part of the show, I didn't watch it much before that. My girlfriend and I started dating about the same time Eric and Donna started dating, so I can relate to it in many ways.
