It has been ten years since That ’70s Show finally brought the decade to an end on Fox, closing out a run that saw eight seasons and 200 episodes. Pretty good for a show from the network that cancels them like they’re made out of pure garbage. And since they’ve reached a decade since being on the air — and since it’s a fairly popular show among the younger audiences out there — it’s only fitting that there would be rumblings about a reunion.
Cut to Ashton Kutcher’s Instagram account where we see the former Michael Kelso hanging out with his old pals Danny Masterson and Wilmer Valderrama. Now it isn’t like it is out of the blue since Kutcher and Masterson are working together on a Netflix series called The Ranch, but it’s hard not to think they’d want to relive some of that old glory.
People notes that Topher Grace recently likened the cast to a bunch of friends from high school, referencing the marriage of Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher as one of the interesting factors of their group:
“It’s so cool…Imagine two of your great high school friends, who weren’t dating in high school but were buddies and you’re all in the same friend group,” Grace said, “and they grow up and they fall in love, get married, have a kid.”
See I don’t feel this is that hard to imagine. If you grow up in a small town and you run into the people you went to high school with, you notice that they all just swap roles like they’re in a WWE tag match. For Kutcher and Kunis, the fact that they got together isn’t much of a surprise. Especially since he considers these people family and all.
I guess since we’re getting a Mad TV reunion, a That ’70s Show reunion shouldn’t be that far fetched. Pick it up in like 1989, show how it went all second half of Boogie Nights on them, and then end it with a blistering set from DJ Mom Jeans.
