''That '80s Show'' (2002) was a [[ShortRunners short-lived]] Creator/{{Fox}}-network spin-off of their ''Series/That70sShow'', with a new batch of characters living in San Diego during the eponymous decade. The show mainly centered around 22-year-old hopeful musician Corey Howard (Creator/GlennHowerton), who puts off his career plans and works at the local Permanent Record store with the mercurial mohawk-coiffed clerk June Tuesday (Creator/ChylerLeigh) and sarcastic, sixties-in-the-mind owner Margaret (Margaret Smith). Living at home with his yuppie, hip, new-money dad RT (Geoff Pierson) and college drop-out, earth-hippie sister Katie (Tinsley Grimes) who mostly runs the house and puts together a string of enviormentally-conscious (or so she thinks) home-business ideas. Rounding out the cast of characters is Roger (Eddie Shinn), Corey's Ronald Reagan-and-self-help-tape loving best friend and wannabe-rich-guy, with an endless supply of hair gel and [[BadBadActing incredibly awkward (and random) dance moves]], and Sophia (Brittany Daniel), Corey's openly bisexual ex-lover who becomes marketing director at Videx, leading to some unwelcome intrusions into the Howard Home and with a none-too-subtle crush on Katie. No doubt plenty of the usually wacky sitcom shenanigans, terrible hairstyles and jokes about giant cell-phones and Reagan-era material excesses in bunches.

!! Tropes in this series include:

* BelligerentSexualTension: Corey and Tuesday, [[spoiler: of the SlapSlapKiss trajectory]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Margaret, to everybody.
* DepravedBisexual: Sophia, Corey's ex who has a crush on his sister.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Katie, who recieves plenty of attention from men... and Sophia.
* LivesInAVan: There was an episode that revealed that Tuesday was living out of her car.
* RecycledInSpace: Basically the same style and template of ''Series/That70sShow'', only transported to a campier 80s setting.
* ShipperOnDeck: Margaret seems to be one for Tuesday and Corey, frequently tricking them into spending more time with each other.
* ThatNostalgiaShow: With the jokes regarding TheEighties being much more frequent than in the 70s predecessor.
