"I'M TIRED OF LOSING IN YOUR FASHION WAR!" – Haven't really been watching That Seventies Show regularly in some time – not precisely sure when we stopped habitually viewing it since I've seen an occasional rerun from later episodes since, but I think Fez was still married to Laurie at the time. But we made a point of watching the two ep series finale to the show, just to see how the writers wrapped up things. Didn't recognize the long-haired dork who apparently was Hot Donna's b.f. for a time, but from all he contributed to the show, it doesn't appear as if I missed much. The penultimate entry featured a guest spot by Justin Long as a fellow countryman of Fez's – one more instance of the series' long-standing practice of misusing otherwise talented comic actors (see also, Kevin McDonald's Pastor Dave & Seth Green's Mitch) – while the New Year's Eve finish brought back both Topher Grace and Ashton Kutcher for some mildly emotional goodbyes. Not a lotta laffs and a lazy overuse of clips from previous shows, but I guess I'm glad nobody got killed in a car crash . . .
