That '70s Show
Fans Never Quite
Understood
This Romance
By SHANE O'NEILL
Through the years, several romances sprang up between the main characters in “That ‘70s Show,” and while a few pairings became iconic, one didn’t work for fans at all. In the final season, Jackie (Mila Kunis) and Fez (Wilmer Valderrama) slowly develop feelings for each other, leading them into a strange, “will they-won't they” kind of relationship.
Many fans felt that this narrative move didn’t make a lot of sense, but could’ve worked had the writers taken a different approach. Sadly, not even those involved in the show have a good reason for why the two staples of "That '70s Show" wound up together.
In a 2021 interview, Valderrama broached the topic stating, "We had done so much in, you know, 200 episodes [...] We kind of ran out of everything. What would be the most random thing we could do? And I feel like that was it." Reasoning aside, fans continue to assert it's one of the show's weakest and most perplexing romances.
