If you’re anything like us then you will have spent the last 24 hours binge watching Netflix’s That ’90s Show after its release yesterday (19th January). The 10-part sitcom is a reboot of the iconic That ’70s Show and sees Donna and Eric’s teenage daughter Leia visit her grandparents in Point Place for the summer, where she meets new friends and falls in love.
So many of the original cast have made cameo appearances and it’s giving us all the nostalgic feels. One cameo appearance that everyone online (us very much included) has been obsessed with, is Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis‘ appearance in the first episode, reprising their roles as Michael Kelso and Jackie Burkhart. In the original series they were just teenagers, but now they’ve returned as adults and parents to Jay, Leia’s love interest.
The pair, who are married in real life, appeared at the end of episode one when Leia is introducing her grandparents to Jay. Upon Jay sharing his surname, his dad Michael bursts into the Forman kitchen with his iconic line “Buuurn”. He offers up some classic parenting advice “jump off a cliff naked” (um, we’re not sure about that one) and gives Kitty a big hug. Unsurprisingly Red is not happy to see Michael.
It then gets even better as Mila Kunis enters as Jackie with a classic 90s haircut, shouting “Michael let’s go!” Jackie and Michael explain they’re getting remarried for the second time and we get one last “damn, Jackie” before they leave. Sorry, that’s just a tear in my eye.
Viewers are sharing all their heartwarming reactions to the scene, with some describing the moment as “perfect” and others have simply been screaming in joy at seeing the two on screen again.
One person said: “The way I just started SCREAMING best entrance ever.”
Another said: “To Kelso’s famous ‘BURNNNN’ line to Jackie still being an absolute queen to their tv kid being perfectly casted ICONIC.”
And another said: “This scene of #That90sShow is just perfect.”
Sadly, we don’t get to see any other Jackie and Michael scenes again. So I guess we’re just going to have rewatch this one a few more times.
Oh, and definitely cross our fingers for a season two.
That ’90s Show is available on Netflix now.
