At the turn of the millennium, That ’70s Show proved one of Fox’s most successful programs. Its eight-year run was a launching pad for some meteoric careers, not least those of Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and main protagonist Topher Grace. But it also gave birth to tragedy, as some of its stars suffered dark times.
That ’70s Show was actually quite hard-hitting in its first season. It dealt with class and generational distrust, drug use among teens, the recession that hit America that decade and more. At one point the main character Eric Foreman was in danger of losing his home. However, as the show went on it dropped some of the drama and went for full comedy.
