"Yeah I said it. Season 8 sucked. It wasn't a really season at all. It was just something the writers scrapped together to get by and it wasn't good at all. First of all Randy? What the heck? What was the point of him except to be a hole filler for Eric. And he didn't even do a good job. He was horrible and just a big slut. Donna deserved something better. Okay second of all Jackie and Fez? Okay yes go through the whole entire series and you can see some scenes where you wonder if they'll end up together but to actually have it happen? It was horrible. I mean yes the things they did to each other before they got together to get back at each other was hilarious I'll give the writers that much but the rest of it after they actually got there....I couldn't watch it. It wasn't right. But the worst thing of all...the stripper. Okay why did Hyde have to go marry the stripper? I mean i loved Jackie and Hyde together and personally i think they were just as perfect for each other as Donna and Eric. But to have him go off and marry a stripper just wasn't right. They were making him too much like Bud when they'd already worked so hard to prove that he wasn't anything like him. So it was just a let down to see that all just disappear. That all the hard work Hyde put into proving he was a good man went poof the second that blonde bimbo walked in the room. I don't know maybe someone else has a different opinion of this and hates what I'm saying but i think this season could have been so much better. Lets hope that in the future there's like a reunion special and they rectify what they have done and make their loyal fans happy. Let's just hope."

"I am a HUGE fan of That 70's show! I love this show very much and I highly recommend buying seasons 1-7. But I do not recommend purchasing Season 8.
In my opinion, the departures of Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher was not the major problem with season 8. No, the real MAJOR problem was that the shows "powers that be" broke up Hyde and Jackie! Huge mistake!!
Hyde (Danny Masterson) and Jackie (Mila Kunis) were the most EXCITING couple on the show. They had AMAZING chemistry! They could throw banter back and forth and they were so funny and sexy together.
That and the writing was lacking in the last season. Subsequently, the show was not the same funny, fresh, and smart sitcom it used to be, sadly. "
Worst Season Ever in the History of Television!

"Anyone who says otherwise is Helen Keller. NOTHING was funny. Seriously. It's sad. I cringe when I catch pieces of it. What a shame for such a great comedy to go out this badly. Hyde marries a stripper? Jackie and Fez? Randy? Everything is completely ridiculous, and cruel, might I add. It's so obvious that the writers did not care anymore about this show or its characters. And the reviewer who said they turned Hyde into Bud was right. It was such a shame. They ruined him and the whole point of his character. They made this point to show that he was better than that, and then they have him get drunk and marry a stripper and try to pass her off, after only a few episodes, as the love of his life? Are you kidding me? They just swept the seven years of Jackie and Hyde buildup under the rug for no reason, split them up in the most cruel manner possible, acted as if their relationship never happened, and then forced Jackie and Fez together in the last seconds, again, like we were stupid and were going to believe that they were soul mates or something. Please. It was disgusting. The finale is a rip off, too. Not even Eric and Donna and their seven year relationship was given its proper due. A two minute conversation that got them nowhere? What was the point of it all then? And Randy - useless and unfunny. They should have kept Charlie, and Kitty and Red were simply not themselves. First of all, they let Hyde bring home a stripper wife and let them live in the basement with her. How pathetic, and she was just gross, by the way, putting her dirty, bare feet on their kitchen table. Ew. The whole thing just makes me sick and makes me feel as if I wasted seven years of my life watching this great show, all to see it turn to this, for greed. I will NEVER buy this DVD. You couldn't pay me to bring it into my home."

"I've laughed maybe once or twice through out the whole season, unlike other seasons where it was every episode had me wanting more. I found Fez starting to irratate me with his immaturity and the fact that he became the object of Jackie's obsession just screamed "we've run out of ideas here" Adding a new character into a group of friends that were so close and having us believe he was instantly accepted and "one of them" is fake.
Season 8 is just proof that a good thing can go bad"
Bad season. I say bad season!

"Okay... Topher and Ashton left, that's a blow to the show there. But... this season failed in other aspects too. They knew things were ending and some plots moved way too fast. What was that nervous twitch Fez got during this season? That thing he was always doing with his fingers? The last episode had the potential to be totally awesome and a tear-jerker, but it failed due to the writers needing to inject comedy into everything. I mean, I know this is a sitcom, but that ending could have been so much more. Just as Kitty showing the hosue to potential buyers, when she's reminiscing, it was quite emotional for a bit, but they moved it too fast and ruined the moment by ending it with a joke. I got to watch this because it was included with the 70's Show box set I got, but I wouldn't pay for it on its own. Seasons 1-7 are awesome, get those and just think the show ended when Eric left."
