Here’s How ‘That 70s Show’ Would Look if Aired This Summer.
As our car revs up and we hit the imaginary highway of time, let’s set our destination to the year 2001 – a time when frosted tips were the epitome of cool and everyone was strutting their stuff to ‘N Sync and Destiny’s Child.
Let’s take a moment to dream up a sitcom in the style of “That 70s Show,” but slap-bang in the early aughts. We’re talking about “That 00s Show”!
Right off the bat, our living room set would be a kaleidoscope of bold and vibrant colors.
Forget the earthy browns and oranges of the 70s; we’ve got lime green couches, hot pink rugs, and maybe even a lava lamp or two because, why not? It’s the new millennium, baby!
Our ragtag group of friends would still be hanging out in their favorite basement, but instead of a record player spinning Led Zeppelin, there would be a CD player blasting ‘Survivor’ by Destiny’s Child.
Conversations would be sprinkled with debates over who’s better – ‘N Sync or the Backstreet Boys.
And no gathering would be complete without someone showing off their latest Tamagotchi or Pokémon cards.
When it comes to fashion, let’s dig into the era of denim on denim, cargo pants, and trucker hats.
Our lovable protagonist would sport a Justin Timberlake-inspired frosted tip hairstyle, while the leading lady would have her own collection of colorful bandanas and butterfly clips.
And let’s not forget the iconic low-rise jeans and crop tops combo – the ultimate hallmark of 2001 fashion.
This being the age of technology, we’d see our characters grapple with the arrival of the iPod, or get tangled in the cords of their new Nokia phones as they try to beat their highest score on Snake.
You’d have the nerdy character showing off his brand new GameCube, while the trendy character is constantly updating her AOL Instant Messenger away message.
And let’s talk about the vibe. We’d have the camaraderie and humor of “Friends” meeting the family dynamics and hilarity of “Malcolm in the Middle.”
Imagine episodes filled with sibling rivalries, over-the-top school dances, early internet culture, and of course, the emotional rollercoaster of 9/11 and its aftermath.
