Parents need to know that this sitcom is geared towards teens and adults,not young kids.There's sexual humor,crass language and drug use in every episode.There are some lighthearted messages here,but it'll be hard to find.
Messages:Negative 0/5 There are some lighthearted messages about the importance of friends and family,it also looks into how pot smoking and teen sex should be a regular thing.
Role Models:Negative 2/5 Most of the characters here used Stereotypically,but at times they do have a good heart,but they also behave badly at times,mostly the teens.
Violence:1/5 Slapstick Violence at times
Sex:3/5 Characters talk about sex a lot,by using the term "doing it.",and although nothing is actually shown,it's much alluded to,during one season Eric and Donna have sex alot,Kelso is very sexually Active.Adults also use sexual banter and talk about role playing.
Language:3/5 Frequent crass language includes repeated uses of "a**"(mostly heard from Red.),other language includes "d*mn","b*tch","dink","tease" and"h*ll".
Consumerism:0/5 Not an issue
Drinking,Drugs and Smoking:4/5 Pot Smoking plays a big role as teens are shown in the basement with mysteryous clouds,Pot is also used for humor,one episode adults/parents accidentally eat "special" brownies.Some Teen Drinking,sometimes to drunkness,Red likes to drink beer.
Is it any good:There's a reason why this show is very appealing to older audiences,it's clever,funny and is set in the '70s.The jokes at times are pretty silly,but there also flat out funny at times.Storylines can get pretty creative,the first four seasons are moslty about teen-related issues,but then once the final seasons come in,the teens soon start adulthood,and others soon start off they're careers and leave the series.It's nice for the once rebel group to grow up and start they're life,but it also leave's viewers questioned on what happens on the final episode(It would have been nice to have a That '80s show.).Questions like,What happenned to Kelso and his child,How Eric will be as a teacher,and if Jackie and Fez will ever be a couple.
The best thing about this show is it's terrific cast,they fit perfectly with they're Stereotypical roles,and even show heart at times.Guest Actors like Lisa Robin Kelly as Eric's Risque sister Laurie,and Tommy Chong as the happy,but clueless Leo help round out the cast.That '70s Show may not appeal to younger audiences,but teens and adults will surely love it.
