90% of "That 70's Show" was about teenagers hanging out, getting
high and having sex in the basement, which looked...like a
basement, partially finished.  It didn't look like a normal den
or family room or parlour.  It looked like a basement that had an
old shabby couch in it so the kids could hang out down there out
of everyone's way and nothing in there that they could mess up
too badly.
