    hey anyone watching right now???

    It kind of sucks some pretty funny one liners though, perfect attempt @ re-creating the 80's cause they sucked too..

    yah, it seems pretty lame so far, however I didn;'t like that 70's show series premier either but after a few episodes I was hooked.

    Well.. it wasn't very entertaining.. because the episode is basically just introducing the characters.

    You can't really have a great half-hour plot in a tv series without anyone knowing who the people are. This was more of an explanation, rather than storyline.

    Stick with it for a couple more weeks.

    i think that we are all a lot dumber for having seen that.

    Oil spill...

    Brilliant! Was I the only one who got that?

    Anyway, I like that Roger dude, the guy's sister, and the punk. The lesbian was on That 70's Show yesterday (as Eric's cousin Penny), the punk had a small part in Who's the Boss? (she played another punk who was liked by Jonathan Bower), and the father is from Unhappily Ever After.

    I'm gonna stick with the show.

    i forgot to watch this last night, but caught the final few minutes...so i can't make an judgments yet...i don't watch a lot of tv, but really enjoy the 70's show when i see it...

    as pointed out a few times above, the 80's is a very nondescript decade...i mean we didnt' have a summer of love, there was no disco revolution, no grunge, no rave scene...the 80's from the outside is bland & homogenized...however dig deeper & you probably have one of the most diverse & amazing times for music...from a huge ska revival, to industrial, to breakdancing (any breakdancin' references last night???), to an incredbible alternative scene (smiths, cure, depeche mode etc)...we still had rockers, we had punks, we had b-boys & girls...

    i hope they don't feed us bon jovi, cyndi lauper & wham musical references all the time, since no self respecting teenager in the 80's listened to any of that garbage which filters through 80's retro nights now...

    oh well, way too much of a rant this morning...off to work [​IMG]

    okay, so the show didn't live up to my ridiculously high expectations...
    but that isnt such a big surprise.

    i thought the "awkward" thing after the bi-girl kissed the sister was pretty damn funny.

    and the "i deserve a big car" thing was funny.

    the punk vs. blue lagoon exchanges were very lame...

    but between the brother, his friend and his sister... there is still hope for That 80's Show.

    Like I said before, I am the biggest fan of That 70s Show but since I can remember the 80's most of the jokes have a more personal gag to them.

    Personally I liked it and will watch again and again.

    Well, based on the ratings, it was a hit. For all of Wednesday night, it ranked 1st amongst adults 18-34 and 18-49 (second for adults 25-54)
    Whether or not it's a 'good' show, I guess people want to watch it.
