7 New Year’s Resolution Tips from That ’70s Show

Ring in the New Year with That '70s Show Mondays & Tuesdays from 6-11P on IFC.

Posted by on

The new year is a time of self-reflection and self-improvement. Who better to offer advice than the gang from That ’70s Show? They were literally defined by the years they lived and obliterated by the peal of the bells on December 31st, 1979. If anyone respects the power of the New Year, it’s them.

We’ve gone over their goals from the series to see how Eric, Kelso, Donna and the rest can help you make better New Year’s Resolutions. We hope they help you to have a prosperous and mellow 2016.

1. Make every day special.

Kelso’s advice is to follow your dreams and do awesome things. True, he never opened a restaurant. In fact most people wouldn’t even trust him with a candy bar wrapper. But his goal made him happy, sounded awesome, and was enough to get him through another day. And isn’t that what we all want from our resolutions?

2. Go out and meet new people.

Not every goal needs to be good for the world. This one is all about Jackie, just like most things involving Jackie. It plays to her strengths, it’ll make her feel better, and it’s a definite plan of action to combat any kind of bad mood. She’d be a self-help superstar if she could even pretend to care about anyone else.

3. Love the one you’re with.

Red loving anybody

Red reduces the thorny issue of unpaid emotional labor down to its purest core, then kicks its ass. It’s also maybe the most important advice you’ll ever get. Look after those you love first and don’t even pretend to compromise. Anything else is a waste of time.

4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

“If I’m gonna shake this Donna thing, I am gonna need some serious discipline. Please ground me.” It’s okay to ask for help when you need it. Asking Red, though, might be a mistake. Though this may be the happiest Eric has ever made Red. Punishment is one thing Red always resolves to be better at.

5. Know thyself above all else.

Hot Donna

This was more of a work requirement than a resolution, as Donna had been given her own show on local radio. But deciding to call yourself “Hot Donna” is a self-confident, self-improving, self-affirming attitude in any event. Give yourself a powerfully positive name and use it!

6. Own your personal style.


We’ll be honest: Hyde’s resolution to wear Zeppelin T-shirts isn’t going to set the world on fire. But it’s classic Hyde: a determined application of all his intelligence to the tiny little things that make him happy. Instead of the vast projects we’re told we should hope for, but never achieve, Hyde advises doing the little things that make you happy every day.

7. Just get out there and be awesome.

Fez’s resolution was sincere, joyous, 100% heartfelt and 100% all-the-rest-of-the-body-felt as well. He finally achieved his life’s ambition to “do it” with his girlfriend Nina. Even without the specifically sexual factor, this is great advice for any new year. You are going to do it. You’re going to set a goal, work towards it, be positive, and have fun!


Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
