Produced by David Trainer, That '70s Show was a popular tv series from 1998 - 2006. It is a comedy revolving around a group of teenage friends, their mishaps, and their coming of age, set in the 1970s Wisconsin. This show parodied many of the attitudes, events and fads of the 70's, along with those who grew up at the time.

Typical requirements of a popular tv show are witty and believable dialogue, stereotypical characters and personality traits, follows a storyline, simple sets and easy transitions. That '70s Show had witty dialogue that was accurate to the '70s, simple sets where multiple events could take place in one set, a catchy theme song, sets were very-well lit, and included cheap, easy and simple transitions. That '70s Show was stupid, funny and cheap entertainment. It included all the stereotypical characters; a blonde and "loose" girl, a brainac, the pretty boy whose kind of dumb, the materialistic girl and the foreigner. The storyline is easy to follow because it is about friends living their lives, it mirrors the events of its target audience.

That '70s Show is a good adolescence show, because it mirrors the events of the teenage life and introduces them in a humourous manner. However, That '70s Show is not limited to the adolescence demographic, it is a good show for anyone maturing or who is mature. As much as That '70s Show mirrors the events of the teenage life during the 1970s, it also reminds adults of their adolescence years. This is a good show, because it's sole purpose is to make people laugh.
