That ’70s Show (Fox 1998-2006, Laura Prepon, Ashton Kutcher)

That 70’s Show was as the title suggests a journey back to the 1970’s. For Eric, Kelso, Jackie, Hyde, Donna and Fez, a group of high school teens who spend most of their time hanging out in Eric’s basement, life in the ‘70s isn’t always so groovy. But between trying to figure out the meaning of life, avoiding their parents, and dealing with out-of-control hormones, they’ve learned one thing for sure: they’ll always get by with a little help from their friends.

By the time of the seventh (and penultimate) season we had reached 1979 and it felt like the series was ready to end although it did in fact continue for one more season. Main character Eric Grace had moved on replaced by a character called Randy Pearson. Ashton Kutcher, who became a massive star on the back of the series, also left. His character, Michael Kelso, did appear in the first five episodes of the season before leaving for Chicago.
