    The season begins with Eric gone, and Hyde coming back from a Vegas bender, where he married a stripper.

    Leo is apparently an employee at the record store, which he turned into a hippie den when Hyde was off.
    Hyde hired a new guy, Randy, whom has the hots for Donna.

    Hyde's new wife moves in with him in the Foreman house.

    Jackie moves into the apartment with Fez.

    An ongoing storyline is Donna and Kitty sending various forms of communications to Eric. From cassette tapes to nude photographs.

    I'm still watching. More out of habit than anything else.

    My biggest question is: What happened to Hyde's hot stripper wife?? She's kinda just disappeared lately.

    The show hasn't been great for a few seasons now. The first few were very funny.

    Huh, that's the one spoiler I didn't know and I've only watched one episode all season. Guess I didn't miss much in the story line department. Kinda saw that coming anyway.

    Thanks guys!

    For some reason I still record this show but rarely get around to watching it. I guess it's out of habit. It was a good show (not great) during the first season or two but got steadily worse.

    This show is a perfect example of why some other shows prefer to leave while they are still good and before they grow stale and stupid.

    The show is about teenagers. I don't think the actors were really teenagers even when it started. Now they all look about 28-30. And the characters were one-dimensional. Kelso couldn't possibly be as dumb as he behaves and Fez is supposed to have trouble getting girls when he's the best looking character on the show. It doesn't make sense. And bringing in the new guy doesn't work well either.

    At this point if the show were to continue it would be funnier if it were more about the adults.

    (the best character left on the show is Tommy Chong)

    Everyone has become characatures. Laura Prepon is hurting particularly, since she never had any acting chops to begin with. Her character was always bland, thanks to her limited range. That's not a good model to characaturize (did I make up a new word? :eek: ). She and Topher Grace use to have a lot of scenes together, their characters being boyfriend and girlfriend, and looking back I suspect he carried her, in a way. But now she has no prop. Would anyone tune into her lifeless voice if she really had a radio show? I was shaking my head during those scenes. She's awful. Hot, but awful. Never has it been so obvious to me.

    With the two funniest actors gone from the show she needs to step up, but she can't.

    I feel sort of the same way with the new guy. They keep giving him some good lines but he just can't pull them off. He's just too smarmy and unappealing, and the jokes fall flat. He reminds me of the guy who replaced John Travolta on Welcome Back Kotter.

    Well, he isn't THAT bad but I exaggerate to make a point. ;)

    BTW, has anyone noticed the '79' sticker is back on the license plate? Maybe they had found out about the cancellation in time to add it back. No need to stretch out the decade anymore.

    I've watched almost every single episode of this show, and loved it... up until this season. I have all of them recorded, but have not watched them. I just can't believe they ruined what would have been a perfect series finale last season, by adding another season without Eric, the main character.

    But I'm gonna have to watch the series finale!
