Set in the era of Led Zeppelin 8-tracks, Tab cola and Farrah Fawcett posters... While the kids continue to make the sometimes bumpy and often hilarious transition into adulthood, the parents are forced to deal with an empty nest.
Milena Markovna "Mila" Kunis (born August 14, 1983) is an American actress and voice artist.
Jacqueline "Jackie" Beulah Burkhart (born c. 1961) is a fictional character from the Fox Network television series That '70s Show. She is portrayed by Mila Kunis.
Jackie is introduced in the pilot episode primarily as Michael Kelso's girlfriend. She likes to give advice which often sounds typically thoughtless and superficial, but turns out to be correct. She is rich, spoiled, selfish, conceited, and annoying, constantly insults every "unattractive" person she sees, and is never really invited into the circle of friends—but believes she has a VIP pass into the group because she's dating Kelso, who is a member. Despite these characteristics, Jackie is popular at school, and has been voted Most Popular and Best Legs, and was the runner-up Snow Queen. She is also something of a chatterbox, rambling on about things that the group (and everyone else) has no interest in. She often is shown thwarting the affinity with others in the group due to her self-absorbed persona. The negative aspects of her personality slowly begin to fade as she matures throughout the seasons, however, and by season 5 Jackie begins to show a more vulnerable and insecure side of herself, as a result of her father's imprisonment and her mother's abandonment of her, as well as her failed romantic relationships. Jackie is also one year younger than everyone in the group except Kelso who is two years older as which is discovered in the episode "Halloween." Also in the episode "Halloween", Jackie's middle name was revealed as "Beulah" (which she hates).
From the second season onward, Jackie continues to hang out in Eric's basement even while single and not dating another member of the gang, which is a sign that her status has grown. These gradual changes make her character develop a defined character arc. However, she still heavily keeps part of her valley girl persona intact and she still looks at herself as the personification of what a woman should be. In contrast to Donna and the prevalent feminist thinking of the 1970s, Jackie is a traditional woman, once claiming that a woman should be a "cook in the kitchen, a maid in the living room, and an acrobat in the bedroom, and I can hire a cook and a maid." Her mindset is probably a result of her pampered upbringing and limited experiences, however, and by season 7 she is actively pursuing a career as a television hostess. By season 8, it does not pan out and her run of good luck is over. Jackie finds herself on a rapid downward spiral.
