Bohemian Rhapsody is the premiere of Season 8 on FOX comedy That '70s Show.


Kitty and Red discover their empty nest isn't very empty, even with Eric in Africa. Meanwhile, Hyde returns from Las Vegas, where he went to clear his mind after catching Jackie and Kelso in a compromising position. But when Kelso and Donna tell Jackie that Hyde planned on proposing to her, Jackie tries to win him back, only to discover that what happens in Vegas doesn't necessarily stay in Vegas.


It's a month since Eric left for Africa and Hyde disappeared in Chicago; Kitty is preparing a tape to send to Eric. She confesses to sampling some of the guys' stash. Kelso now claims he did not actually have sex with Jackie, who's just back and furious with him. Hyde returns and punches Kelso. Charlie falls from the water tower - and dies (eliminating himself from the role of replacement Eric). Jackie hears Hyde was intending to propose in Chicago, and tries to make up. He says he's not ready to get married yet - just in time for the arrival of Sam, who announces she and Hyde are already married.

  • The first episode without Eric.
  • Charlie likely had extremely weak endurance to physical trauma, given that Kelso and the other boys in the group have survived falling off the water tower.
  • A new version of the opening credits is now used, with the cast introduced via the circle. Except for Red, each member of the cast mouths part of the song that plays when they are shown.
  • This episode serves as a continuation of season 7 finale.
