(5 out of 5 stars)
"Season 4 is by far the best season because this season would show Donna and Eric breaking up. This would also be the last season in which they use regular titles for the show since starting with season 5, The episode titles would be used as '70s songs with titles from rock groups.
1.) It's a Wonderful Life 9/25/01 Eric is distraught after his break-up with Donna and wishes that they never kissed in the first place. As soon as he utters this wish, a guardian angel appears to teach Eric that it's better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all. The angel takes Eric on a journey to the future -- the '80s -- to show him how everyone's lives would've turned out if he and Donna never got together. Eric remains unconvinced that the pain of his break-up was worth it, until the angel shows him all the wonderful memories he would have never had.
2.) Eric's Depression 9/26/01 Four days after the big break-up, Eric locks himself in his room ignoring Red and Kitty's pleas for him to come out and talk about it. Meanwhile, the gang goes to Funland without Eric, and Kelso gets lost.

"I love this show!! I have all prior seasons on DVD and I can't wait for this one!! One of my favorite episodes are in this season... That 70's Musical!!
If you haven't seen it, it is a must!! I love how everyone dances and sings!! And it's great to watch each character get down!! I especially love the end credits when they show the bloopers... I'm hoping that they add more bloopers on the DVD...
It's fun to watch them mess up because this cast is such a great group of people that truly have fun together! I've seen it taped live a few times and you can really tell that they all like and respect each other...
BUY THIS DVD SET!!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!"
...ok whens season 5 out?

"..yes I can't wait. It's believable because I discovered this programme only in the U.S and have never had the channel its on over here in the UK -( and never would because theres nothing else worth while watching on it) - While another channel did periodically show some episodes they were shown at 1 am and not in any particular order. So I have bought all 4 Seasons on DVD. There are reacurring story lines and jokes,but this works because they picked the right cast. They never fail. They only cast member I thought was a bit flat was Erics sister, I cant even remember her name she was that good. All in all though there'll never be another show like That 70's. So please bring on the 5th,6th,7th and indeed 8th season to DVD quick -none of this 6 months in between each release nonsence. Oh and the Extra bits could be better."
More fun from Point Place.

""That 70s Show" is a guilty pleasure of a television show, set in the late 1970s and revolving around Eric Forman and his motley crew of friends and family. It's not a show that appeals to everyone to be sure, but I find it's a very funny show at times (less often it's wince-inducingly bad).
Season 4 picks off where the bombshell that concluded Season 3 left off. While I don't like Season 4 as much as I like Season 3, it's still one of the best seasons of "That 70s Show." Here are some of what I feel are the highlight episodes of this season.
"It's a Wonderful Life" - Eric is depressed over his break-up with Donna and wishes they'd never gone out. An angel shows up and grants him his wish, and we get to see a funny (and somewhat creepy) view of what life would be like if Eric and Donna never got together, also providing a glimpse into how the gang reacts to 80s culture.
"Pinciotti Vs. Forman" - Donna and Eric have split up, so now they fight for "custody" of their friends, who act like children caught up in a divorce.
"The Relapse/Uncomfortable Ball Stuff" - Donna and Eric "make up" - or so it seems to Eric. Kelso helps Fez pick up older women at the supermarket, with hilarious results. In the second episode of the two-parter, Donna and Eric share an uncomfortable date at the Pricemart Ball.
"An Eric Forman Christmas" - Eric has to direct the church Christmas paegant and listen to his friends' complaints; Kelso's love of Christmas specials makes for good comedic fodder.
"Class Picture" - On class picture day, the gang remembers moments from the past, which sounds like a clip show, but it actually features the friends as children in events that took place well before the show's history began.
"Prank Day" - My favorite episode of Season 4. Eric, Hyde, and Fez declare prank war on Kelso for the pranks he's pulled on them. Things backfire quickly.
"Hyde's Birthday" - The gang goes on a quest to steal the "High Street" street sign for Hyde's birthday.
"That 70s Musical" - Fez's active imagination leads him into many fantasy musical sequences when he begins to think his friends do not care about him.
"Love Wisconsin Style" - Two members of the group of friends run off to California.
What else can be said about this? The extra "features" are remarkably sparse and unimaginative, the commentaries dry, etc. but these remarks reply to all of the seasons of "That 70s Show" released on DVD so far. The draw is, of course, the episodes, and if you liked past seasons, you should like this season."
All seasons are equally hilarious from start to finish
