Trivial, but for some reason it bugged me that Kitty still had the same 70’s hairdo

And Eric. Sorry, but a 35 year old dad in 1995 didn't dress like a nerd from 1978. And I'm pretty sure he was wearing a wig to have the same haircut. Why?

The original came across like it was created and written by people who were teens in the late '70s. This one comes across like it was created and written by people who were teens in the '70s and think they can easily strike the same chord with a '90s setting. They can't because they see that time as adults, not as kids. Example, the "riot grrrl" has a poster of Hole in her room, but no Bikini Kill? And don't get me started on a rando 15 year old in Wisconsin singing Alanis at the top of her lungs 2 weeks after the song was released.

On the topic of haircuts, none of the boys in the show have 90's haircuts. Just another thing that bugged me. We need some butt cuts and bowls. Maybe some bleach.

I was kid in the 70's and none of my parents/grandparents ever really changed their hairstyles as they got old.

My mom has had the same hair style for 40 years.  I go look at baby pictures of me and my sister - it's "blonde" now, but it's the same fucking haircut.

Years ago I asked my dad, "Where do you even find bryll cream or whatever that crap is anymore?"

Made it through 2 episodes. Only watched the second because I was waiting for something in the oven. Memberberries only go so far. That 70's Show sucked after "Eric left for Africa". 

Yeah, this is where I'm at.  I was excited by the premise but none of the new kids really make it work, as someone who was in middle school and high school in the back half of the 90's, it doesn't really feel like that time at all, and in the end it just doesn't work.
