    [They] don't begin to capture the period beyond its thin patina, and even worse, they are simply not funny...Some arresting visual techniques here, but the writing is heavy-handed, the humor broad and labored, and some of the acting way over the top. [22 Aug 1998, p.F1]

    It blends fleeting moments of inspiration with lengthy stretches of utter banality.

The acting is a little shaky in this season though, but not too much of a big deal seeing as it's like that with the beginning of most TV shows. A very hilarious season, and a very great start to the show. Absolutely loved it. Full Review »

The teenager main characters are very relatable to modern teens and the parents can appeal to adults. The parents can even be liked by the children and that is what makes the show special. The show is great from the start and the characters work so well together. You can have any of the main characters on the screen at the same time and it works. Also the fact that the show is set in the seventies peaks my interest and I'd say that the sets were well thought out and that is another thing that makes the show appeal to adults is because it was based in the time they grew up and they can relate to the teens.
