Maybe the whole cardboard cutout incident would make Eric and Donna realize how much better they have to communicate with each other.

They went to go see that Billy Dee character for some sort of couples counseling wasn't it? But that just focused on premarital sex. Maybe they needed to go back for what you're talking about...

This cardboard standee gag sounds hilarious. Remember in that episode during a circle Eric said "Maybe this life doesn't even matter, y'know. Maybe we're not even here. Or, no, maybe I'm here, but you're not. [suddenly desperate and feeling alone] "Hello?!"

Pastor Dan. But, really, Eric and Donna didn't need to set their wedding date so early. They could've had a long engagement, which seemed to be the original intent when they got engaged in season 5. They wouldn't get married until after college, which is how it should've stayed. But impending nuptials are a staple of TV shows.

That's a very funny moment on the show, and Eric talking to the cardboard cutouts while in the circle -- and one (or more) of them falling down while he talks to them would've scared the hell out of him.

I wished they would have had a longer engagement. Their is nothing wrong with a long engagement especially if you are younger.

I believe they would've had a longer engagement if the writers hadn't forced them to set a date.

Once the writers forced the characters to make choices for the sake of plot, instead of figuring out what might happen based on what the characters would actually do, the quality of the show went .

Yes, and sadly all of them suffered for it.

Yeah, all the main characters saw their development go down the drain.

Season-2 Donna and Eric should've gotten a glimpse at their show!future and rebelled.

Seasons one and two Eric and Donna were the Eric and Donna I enjoyed. They were playful and fun.

Yes, and they dealt with their issues (mostly).

Yes! It was fun to watch them grow during those times.

Speaking of early E/D, I wonder how the show would've gone had Eric and Donna broken up at the end of season 1, as (allegedly) originally planned (after Fox ordered more eps for season 1). The end of "A New Hope" was supposed to lead into that.

I think even if they broke up, they would have found a way back to each other.
