That '70s Show: Season 1 (1998-1999)




Critic Consensus: That '70s Show recaptures the dream of the 1970s rather than the reality, but it charms with its groovy style and an appealing cast -- with invaluable assistance from Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith.

Critic Reviews for That '70s Show: Season 1

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (24)

A right-on time capsule of a decade, a warm com-ing-of-age comedy and the funniest new sitcom on any network this fall.

This charming, low-key show, though, is like stepping back in time.

March 9, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Farrah Fawcett-Majors posters, pizza rolls, the gas crisis, leisure suits, the Captain & Tennille: images that make us giggle and moan, which is the likely reaction you'll have to this slapstick sitcom about teenagers surviving the '70s.

March 8, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

For adults who were teens in the disco age, That '70s Show offers some very funny and accurate remembrances of growing up. For teens today, it's a history lesson that could bring a shocking revelation: Their parents once behaved a lot like they do.

Adding extraordinarily to the mix are Eric's parents Kitty and Red, played by Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith, who does such subtle work here it appears he's not even acting... He's hilarious.

It's a bright, sublimely witty original. Get stoned on good comedy.
