What a blast it would be to be able be a fly on the wall sometimes. That’s what comes to mind when I think of, That 70’s Show. Viewers could just sit back and watch the antics of the well meaning but misguided teenagers as they navigate their way from childhood to adulthood. The storyline, however, was just one aspect of the well-cast show.

Pop culture and music was a recurring theme of, That 70’s Show.

The show portrayed the true 70s culture using songs of popular rock groups bands of the time and by naming the episodes after popular songs. Groups and songs integrated in the program came from Led Zepplin, The Who, The Rolling Stones and Queen.

That 70’s Show, is a television sitcom chronicling a tight knit group of suburban teenagers. The show is set in the 1970’s during the height of the cultural upset in America. The Forman’s basement served as a hub for the group of friends. There, they dealt with all of the common issues of the era including sex, drugs and rock and roll!

Eric’s parents, Red and Kitty and Donna’s father, Bob, who was the next-door neighbor, were also fixtures on the show. The dialog, at any given time, was comical. It brought to light the plight of the changing culture and the functional dysfunction of the American family in the 70’s.
