I love That 70’s Show!
I was really sad early last week when I discovered the series was on Netflix live stream. The reason for my big salty tears is because Netflix removed the series February 1st!
You should have seen me! It was a “That 70’s Show” marathon for 3 days. I had to get my fix before they removed it from the Netflix Queue.
I wasn’t a faithful watcher when it was a current television event. I do not watch regular TV. I hate commercials for one and the other main reason I hate network TV is you have to wait a whole entire week for the next episode!
Lost is another example of my love hate relationship with network television. Loved the show. Just couldn’t stand waiting an entire week to have a few answers and more questions. I waited until Lost was released on DVD’s and then watched full seasons marathon style as well.
The first time I watched That 70’s Show was 2 summers ago while visiting my dad. He has satellite TV and Aliesha and I soaked up the retro vibes of That 70’s Show non-stop!
Aliesha doesn’t have a clue. She was born in the 90’s. The 70’s are the olden days to her.
But me! That 70’s show is a retrospect of my life!
Including the “Circle”. Except my “Circle” was not in a basement but in an attic or Alan’s Room. Good times!
All of the issues and attitudes of the 70’s are related perfectly on this sitcom. Sex, drugs, music, fashion, cars, economics, Star Wars, and relationships. I find myself saying..”Yeah,Yeah! That’s the way it really was!”
I don’t think I am any character from the show (in whole). Even though my name is Lori, I was nothing like the character Laurie on the show! I promise, I was not a manipulator or overly promiscuous during the 70’s! I was a little of Jackie and Donna both. Living my life in the generation of exploration.
I had friends who depict actual characters from That 70’s Show. I actually knew a Hyde, Foreman, Kelso and Fez! Let the Good Times Roll!’
I think when they disclose in the final credits that…
“All characters appearing in this work are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.”
It’s a lie…All lies!
