    12. If That ’70s Show debuted today and was set the same number of years in the past as it was during its debut, it’d be called That ’90s Show and would take place in 1995.

    Fox Television

    The series, which started in 1998, took place 22 years earlier, in 1976. So in the "show" they'd probably be in Eric's basement getting high and watching Reality Bites and Jurassic Park.

    13. Not freaking out? Well, Freaks and Geeks could take place 1998. Which is only ONE year before the show actually premiered in 1999.
