Default That '70s Show - Season Eight DVD Review

This is normally the happy and peppy part of the review, where I go into a spiel plugging any virtues of the set that may exist, usually in a tone worthy of press works. But Iím going to level with you *extremely* quickly -- if youíre not a die-hard fan of the show (and if so, you already own this set), you can pretty much stop now. The first seven seasons are great television, but the final season experiences a marked decline with the outright exit of Topher Grace, plus the exit for a majority of the shows by Ashton Kutcher. And the new guy they got to fill out the roster was so unimportant and unmemorable ultimately that heís not even on the front cover of the box art!

Nevermind that Iím soured on the set just because it took *so* long for this review to get going, thanks to a serious of unfortunate events -- plus my own issues this past week -- weíre now a full *seven* weeks beyond street date. The folks who were going to buy this set already have. The folks who were dead set against buying this set probably arenít going to hear anything to change their minds. I canít stand the final season -- and Iím not making any secret of it. Iíll keep this concise and as painless as possible.

Please post any questions or comments about this set.

Pretty harsh. Although the Josh character was a horrid addition, the season wasn't THAT bad.

I disagree - I think it *was* that bad. I mean, it's not television so painful that it'll cause any sort of long term damage - but the final season of the show isn't pretty, IMO.

The "Randy" character was awful, but the overall writing of Season 8 was much better than Season 7. Plus the finale, more than made-up for a lackluster season.

Regarding the review of this boxset.

I don't recall any episodes from the last season airing in widescreen or HD. This was the first television season that I had access to HD signals. Although many That 70s Show bumpers were widescreen, the show itself was 4x3 the entire season.
