Directly after the Lisa Robin Kelly drama, this seems like a good time to announce That 70’s Reunion. Good job, FOX.
This is fantastic. I love that Lisa Robin Kelly has literally blown up the Internet this week, so this is exactly when FOX decides to announce a That 70’s Show reunion that’s in the works.
Now, it’s actually the network’s 25th anniversary, and a bunch of other shows are doing reunion specials also, but let’s open with the show that’s been everywhere this week. Congrats to FOX for cashing in on publicity, subtlety be damned. That sounds snarky, so let me assure you that I’m genuinely impressed.
Anyway, Mila, Ashton, Laura and Wilmer (in order of famousness) have all signed on for the reunion special so far. Apparently Topher still thinks he’s too good for That 70’s Show… you know, because his career is doing so well without it. I can’t stress enough how very badly I want them to ask Lisa Robin Kelly to come along. Seriously. So badly. I’d also like to see Danny Masterson, but that’s just ‘coz I had crushes on both the Masterson boys at some stage, and probably still would if they were still famous, but apparently Tom Cruise and John Travolta are the only scientologists who are allowed to have careers.
It’s going to be a two hour special, and the other shows/actors involved so far are:
Married… With Children’s Christina Applegate, Ed O’Neill, David Faustino and Katey Sagal, Beverly Hills 90210’s Shannen Doherty, Jason Priestly and Ian Ziering, The X Files’ Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, Ally McBeal’s Calista Flockhart and In Living Color’s Wayans brothers.
Let me put it out there that even if Shannen Doherty was the only one who turned up I would be crazy excited for the following reasons:
1) My love for Shannen Doherty is neverending.
2) Shannen Doherty said on multiple occasions that she’d never do a 90210 reunion, right before doing the reunion special that was on years ago, and then guesting in the reboot of 90210. I love her for it.
3) Anything where Shannen talks about 90210 never fails to entertain me, particularly when she talks about the on-screen incestuous vibe between her and Jason because of how bad she wanted to bang him.
Seriously. They should just put Lisa Robin Kelly and Shannen Doherty on a show together. I’d watch it.
