That ’90s Show
There’s so much I have to say about That ’90s Show, and it’s not good. I wouldn’t say I was a huge That ’70s Show fan, but I did watch it faithfully. That’s why I was looking forward to checking out the sequel series. But after just watching the first episode, I was completely turned off.
That ’90s Show is a teen sitcom on Netflix following Eric and Donna’s teenage daughter Leia Forman as she spends the summer with her grandparents in Point Place, Wisconsin. Leia was looking for some adventure in her life, and she soon finds it in Point Place when she befriends the neighborhood kids.
Young rising actress Callie Haverda stars in the leading role of Leia Forman. Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Reyn Doi, Sam Morelos, and Maxwell Acee Donovan play as Leia’s new friends. Additionally, Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith return from the original series to play Kitty and Red Forman.
There were also special guest appearances by most of The ’70s Show cast in the first season, like Topher Grace (Eric), Laura Prepon (Donna), Mila Kunis (Jackie), Ashton Kutcher (Kelso), Wilmer Valderrama (Fez), Tommy Chong (Leo), Don Stark (Bob), and Jim Rash (Fenton).
Honestly, the best part about this show was the guest appearances from the original series’ cast. Everything else was meh. I’m sorry, but the acting by the young cast was just terrible. However, I know many of the young cast members are new to the acting world, so I’ll try to cut them some slack. But there’s no reason for the writing to be so cheesy when That ’70s Show creators are behind this show as well.
Truthfully, I feel like this show was better off being its own show. It shouldn’t have been in any way connected to That ’70s Show because it doesn’t give the same vibe as the original series. But if you did enjoy the first season, you’ll be glad to know that it’ll be returning with a second season. I just won’t be joining everyone else in watching it.
