Just pair this up with Fresh Off the Boat and Young Sheldon and you're good to go!

I also thought it was dumb that the Kelso's live very close by (and in a small town) while Red and Kitty have no idea about them anymore.
And it seems like they haven't seen Leo since the 70s... and lost track of Fez as well?

Only 4 episodes in, but no mention of Hyde at all or Laurie.

The Asian kid is annoying, and the kids acting still feel like they're on a 90's TGIF show.

Yeah, I was thinking that as well.
They can't totally rely on Red/Kitty (outside of the kids), so they need another side character for the show.

I'm 6 episodes in and Bob made an appearance. I was surfing while watching so I may have missed it, but they didn't mention Midge? In fact, the way Bob talked was as if Midge was totally out of the picture (dead, divorced?).

I don't remember her being mentioned. They got divorced on the original show.

Oh, I don't remember that. Although if they got divorced in the final season - that could be why I missed it as I think I only saw one or two episodes when Eric left and just watched the finale.

So Jackie's back up to the top of the rotation now. Kelso, Hyde, Fez and now back to Kelso.

I forgot, is Kelso's kid from him and Jackie... or is it the kid he shared with the American Pie chick?

She left series and the divorce stuff happened off screen midseries. Bob just dealt with it and eventually dated Jackie's mom.

Kelso had a daughter previously, this kid is with Jackie.

I did not want to comment again and feel like I am spamming this thread, but I was easily able to not get distracted by some of the less than stellar acting/line readings from the kids and just enjoy the series as a fun glimpse of how life shook out for some beloved characters from That 70s Show.

It only took me 2 days to finish this up and say to myself that I would absolutely be down for more episodes so hopefully it is picked up. If it is picked up, I will not be shocked if the 2nd season is as far as we get with this show given how often Netflix cancels a show in its second season.

I enjoyed the cameo bits, and in fairness to the kids, at times there were moments where if felt to me that their acting chops were progressing as we went further into the show. I just did not loathe any particular character, even the Asian kid who had some good lines. I probably already said this in an earlier post, but this was a nice light and easy breezy watch.

I may have missed more episodes than I originally thought... or took too many kicks to the head as a youngin.

Ah, I knew he had a first kid - couldn't remember anything more about that.

IIRC Kelso and Jackie weren't even together at the end of the original series, she kissed Fez in the finale.

I thought it was fun. Red and Kitty definitely carried the show, though Fez did a pretty good job too. The kids weren't great, but I thought they got better as the show went on. I'd watch another season.
