Crank up the 8-track and flash back to the "me" decade That 70s Show is now shaking its groove thing on DVD! Set in the era of Led Zeppelin, Tab cola and Farrah Fawcett posters, this hilarious sitcom starring Ashton Kutcher recently celebrated its 100th episode and continues to delight fans with its nostalgic references and funny, slice-of-life storylines about growing up in the 70s.
Long before Ashton met Demi or Topher got lost in Traffic, the makers of Third Rock from the Sun stepped into the Wayback Machine and emerged with That '70s Show. It would go on to become the Fox Network's most successful sitcom since Married... with Children. Set in the Wisconsin suburbs of 1976, the action centers around 17-year-old Eric Forman (Topher Grace), his friends, and his family. He's an ordinary teenager, much like the slackers of Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused, with an interest in girls, cars, beer, and rock & roll (but not necessarily in that order).
Eric's friends include hipster Hyde (Danny Masterson), exchange student Fez (Wilmer Valderrama), and dim-bulb Kelso (Ashton Kutcher). Donna (Lora Prepon), Eric's neighbor, is also a friend, but she'll soon become something more, while Kelso already has a girlfriend, the bossy Jackie (Mila Kunis)--and a crush on Eric's sister Laurie (Lisa Robin Kelly). Kelso and Jackie will spend a good part of the first year breaking up just to make up, while Hyde pines for Donna and Fez for Jackie. Eric's family also includes father Red (Kurtwood Smith) and mother Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp). Donna's includes mother Midge (former Bond girl Tanya Roberts) and perm-sporting father Bob (Don Stark).
The first season boasts a period-perfect bevy of guest stars, including Danny Bonaduce ("Eric's Burger Job"), Eve Plumb ("The Keg"), and Marion Ross as Erics grandmother ("Sunday, Bloody Sunday" and other episodes). That said, if That '70s Show were just a nostalgia trip, it wouldn't have lasted for over seven seasons. Alas, lightning wouldnt strike twice. When the same producers followed-up with That '80s Show a few years later, it would soon disappear without a trace. Accept no substitutes: That '70s Show is the real deal--a retro-comedy, like Happy Days, with heart. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

So here's what I got in the mail: The set comes in a large, plastic DVD box. When I opened them up, all 24 discs were stacked up on top of each other in individual paper sleeves, held in place by this square-shaped plastic thing on the inside. I checked each disc individually for the infamous scratches so many reviews talked about and there were none. I've watched about 4 or 5 of the discs so far and have had no problem with skipping, freezing, the sound was fine, the picture looked fine. Trying to get the DVDs out of the plastic holder thing inside the box can be a bit of a pain, though.
So while I do agree the packaging isn't the greatest, I'm personally satisfied with my purchase. For only $32, I feel this was a pretty great deal.
As for the show itself, it's a great show! If you're looking for something fun to watch, then this is definitely for you!
Mill Creek makes horrible DVDs with compression errors, jittery picture, and authoring errors. HOWEVER they seem to make good to great Blu-ray Discs. I have watched the Mill Creek Blu-rays of That 70's Show season 1 & season 2 and they look great! Sharp, clear and full of bonus material.
Definitely get the Complete series Blu-rays, they are all off of the original camera widescreen negatives (yes the show was shot widescreen)! They even put the old FOX Home Video DVDs to shame.
