I believe this is when I started to watch the series. I think the second season of That 70’s Show is the best one because it has some of the best episodes.
That 70’s Show second season starts off with the Formans having a garage sale. The parents and the neighbors get stoned from hash brownies that Hyde made as a goof. He didn’t mean for the parents to have them but they ended up eating almost the whole batch. Red gets so stoned he sells the Vista Cruiser. Other episodes are about Eric getting be left outside in a niteclub, a college professor loves Laurie, Eric loves cake instead of loving Donna, Eric gets suspended for holding Donna’s cigarette, and Eric and Donna get caught in the act doing it in the Vista Cruiser. Plus there is continuing storylines throughout the episodes like Red trying to find a job, Bob & Midge fighting/splitting up/dating other people, and Kelso cheating on Jackie with Eric’s sister Laurie.
The second season contains 26 episodes and there are lots of funny episodes! This is probably one of the funniest seasons of the series. Red has the best one liners, Eric is funny, and Kelso is an even bigger idiot. Hyde is even a lot more funnier this season as well. He’s the king of the comebacks & wiseass remarks on the show, well Hyde and Red are the kings. The first season was a good introduction to the series but now is when the episodes start to get really good because you know who they are, and what they are about. I think one of the funniest parts of the episodes is when the group is in the “circle.” You don’t see what they are doing but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out. That’s probably why they can get away with showing smoke in the background of the circle. Plus the idea of the show being in the 70’s doesn’t get old & stall yet. Eventually the show starts to overuse some the 70’s flashbacks and b/w scenes featuring celebrities from that decade. I like scenes with Midge (Tanya Roberts) because she’s a MILF! Yup, I’ve seen her naked in quite a few movies haha. And yes I know I’m a perv. But this season was great to watch again because I don’t really watch the reruns all that much.
The extras of this DVD are scattered all over on each DVD set. There’s some semi-interesting/semi bland commentary with Director David Trainer. The Featurette on the fourth disc was ok, it’s pretty much the director talking about the show in general and about the second season. Also on the DVD is some brief webisodes just showing behind the scenes look of the TV show. Again, those were okay. They show some clips of taping the show in front of a live audience and crap like that. There are a few other things to check out on the DVD but I didn’t get a chance to watch all of them yet.
That 70’s Show second season is better than the first, and I’m glad FOX is releasing them at a steady pace now. The third season comes out in the Fall so be on the look out for that! Any 70s Show fan should get this because the episodes look great on DVD, and there’s no commercials…which is always good when it comes to TV shows on DVD.
