From 1998 to 2006, Americans enjoyed That 70’s Show. Right now, nostalgia for the 1990’s is at all time high. May I present to you, That 90’s Show. The best part about That 70’s Show was the chemistry between the cast members. Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama breathed life into that show. While the jokes alone were hilarious, the portrayal of Eric, Jackie, Kelso, Hyde, Donna, and Fez by those specific actors and actresses is what made the series work.

The location should be a fictional suburb of Chicago. There are many reasons for this. First of all, Kelso moved to Chicago at the end of the previous series, so he is already in the area. Second of all, a bunch of kids from the Midwest will most likely stay in the Midwest. After all, That 70’s Show featured Donna moving out to the West, so a setting out there would not make sense due to the disaster from the first time. As for the east coast, I do not think anyone can picture any of the original cast moving that far east. That being said, I think no one would expect them to stay in Wisconsin. Also, after massive urban decay of the 1970’s and 1980’s, I do not believe people from a small town would move to a city per se. However, being close to Chicago could create many plot points. For example, the kids can sneak off for a weekend trip to the “dangerous” city against their parent’s wishes. Other jokes and plot points can reference events which took place during that decade and perhaps, tongue-in-cheek jokes about the future. One example of that can be an episode where the kids interact with a Gulf War veteran and someone exclaims about winnable wars in the Middle
