Point Place, Wisconsin isn’t exactly the ideal place to be in the summer time, but Eric and the gang from That ’70s Show had a few moments of summer fun that didn’t involve sitting in “the circle” and wishing they were in Hawaii. Unfortunately, Red never wore a speedo, but we hope you can cool off with the five best moments of the ’70s gang hanging out in the summer time.

5. Hyde and Jackie’s Summer Fling

This classic summer moment from season five doesn’t involve soaking up the sun but it does involve sucking face in the basement. Hyde and Jackie’s funny and sweet “opposites attract” relationship started with their summer fling born out of boredom. According to Jackie’s story, Hyde wanted to “shake it” to Abba and according to Hyde, Jackie just wanted him. Despite the fact that their hook-up initially taints the basement for Eric and Donna, there would have been no “Jackie and Hyde” without their summer fling.


4. Summer Lovin’

In the first episode of season six, Jackie has been wrestling over who she really wants to be with and the audience gets to see her as Sandy from Grease in the black leather outfit and Hyde in Danny Zuko’s black t-shirt. Jackie imagines the gang singing the classic Grease song “Summer Nights,” except now it’s about her and Hyde belonging together like “baba balooba shwaba she bang she bang.”


3. Summer by the Lake

In the season five finale, the gang heads out to the lake for a night of camping, scary storytelling and skinny dipping. Donna also tells a ghost story that scares Eric, but not as much as when he heads to the lake to skinny dip with Donna and finds Lori naked instead. Meanwhile, Fez ends up in the van with Lori, and in Fez speak, you can say he started the summer off with a bang.


2. Kelso’s Summer Dream Girl

Kelso is never one to miss a chance at showing off his body in a tank top, so when Donna heads to California for the summer to find herself and some blond highlights, Kelso tags along for the sun, the sand and the girls. He meets his match with Annette, in a cameo that was perfect for Jessica Simpson. She’s blonde, beautiful and seems like his dream girl until he finds out she’s a virgin. Turns out the only down and dirty Kelso gets is when they build a sand castle.


1. Eric and Donna reunite on the beach

When the girl next door takes off to spend her summer in sunny California, what’s a pale Wisconsin boy like Eric to do but chase after her? When the duo meet on the beach, the moment is simultaneously hilarious and adorable as they run to meet each other in slow motion like Dudley Moore and Bo Derek in the movie 10. The only difference is Bo Derek didn’t have Kelso running alongside her.

Holiday Extra Special

Make The Holidays ’80s Again

Enjoy the holiday cheer Wednesday December 21 at 10P on IFC.

Whatever happened to the kind of crazy-yet-cozy holiday specials that blanketed the early winter airwaves of the 1980s? Unceremoniously killed by infectious ’90s jadedness? Slow fade out at the hands of early-onset millennial ennui? Whatever the reason, nixing the tradition was a huge mistake.

A huge mistake that we’re about to fix.

Announcing IFC’s Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special, starring Tony Hale. It’s a celeb-studded extravaganza in the glorious tradition of yesteryear featuring Bridget Everett, Jo Firestone, Nick Thune, Jen Kirkman, house band The Dap-Kings, and many more. And it’s at Joe’s Pub, everyone’s favorite home away from home in the Big Apple.

The yuletide cheer explodes Wednesday December 21 at 10P. But if you were born after 1989 and have no idea what void this spectacular special is going to fill, sample from this vintage selection of holiday hits:

Andy Williams and The NBC Kids Search For Santa

The quintessential holiday special. Get snuggly and turn off your brain. You won’t need it.

A Muppet Family Christmas

The Fraggles. The Muppets. The Sesame Street gang. Fate. The Jim Henson multiverse merges in this warm and fuzzy Holiday gathering.

Julie Andrews: The Sound Of Christmas

To this day a foolproof antidote to holiday cynicism. It’s cheesy, but a good cheese. In this case an Alpine Gruyère.

Star Wars Holiday Special

Okay, busted. This one was released in 1978. Still totally ’80s though. And yes that’s Bea Arthur.

Pee Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special

Pass the eggnog, and make sure it’s loaded. This special is everything you’d expect it to be and much, much more.

Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special premieres Wednesday December 21 at 10P on IFC.

It Ain't Over Yet

A Guide to Coping with the End of Comedy Bang! Bang!

Watch the final episodes tonight at 11 and 11:30P on IFC.

Posted by on

After five seasons and 110 halved-hour episodes, Scott Aukerman’s hipster comedy opus, Comedy Bang! Bang!, has come to an end. Fridays at 11 and 11:30P will never be the same. We know it can be hard for fans to adjust after the series finale of their favorite TV show. That’s why we’ve prepared this step-by-step guide to managing your grief.

Step One: Cry it out

It’s just natural. We’re sad too.

Step Two: Read the CB!B! IMDB Trivia Page

The show is over and it feels like you’ve lost a friend. But how well did you really know this friend? Head over to Comedy Bang! Bang!’s IMDB page to find out some things you may not have known…like that it’s “based on a Civil War battle of the same name” or that “Reggie Watts was actually born with the name Theodore Leopold The Third.”

Step Three: Listen to the podcast

One fascinating piece of CB!B! trivia that you might not learn from IMDB is that there’s a podcast that shares the same name as the TV show. It’s even hosted by Scott Aukerman! It’s not exactly like watching the TV show on a Friday night, but that’s only because each episode is released Monday morning. If you close your eyes, the podcast is just like watching the show with your eyes closed!

Step Four: Watch brand new CB!B! clips?!

The best way to cope with the end of Comedy Bang! Bang! is to completely ignore that it’s over — because it’s not. In an unprecedented move, IFC is opening up the bonus CB!B! content vault. There are four brand new, never-before-seen sketches featuring Scott Aukerman, Kid Cudi, and “Weird Al” Yankovic ready for you to view on the IFC App. There’s also one right here, below this paragraph! Watch all four b-b-bonus clips and feel better.

Binge the entire final season, plus exclusive sketches, right now on the IFC app.

Everybody Sweats Now

The Four-Day Sweatsgiving Weekend On IFC

Posted by on

This long holiday weekend is your time to gobble gobble gobble and give heartfelt thanks—thanks for the comfort and forgiveness of sweatpants. Because when it comes right down to it, there’s nothing more wholesome and American than stuffing yourself stupid and spending endless hours in front of the TV in your softest of softests.

So get the sweats, grab the remote and join IFC for four perfect days of entertainment.

sweatsgiving
It all starts with a 24-hour T-day marathon of Rocky Horror Picture Show, then continues Friday with an all-day binge of Stan Against Evil.

By Saturday, the couch will have molded to your shape. Which is good, because you’ll be nestled in for back-to-back Die Hard and Lethal Weapon.

Finally, come Sunday it’s time to put the sweat back in your sweatpants with The Shining, The Exorcist, The Chronicles of Riddick, Terminator 2, and Blade: Trinity. They totally count as cardio.

As if you need more convincing, here’s Martha Wash and the IFC&C Music Factory to hammer the point home.

The Sweatsgiving Weekend starts Thursday on IFC
