If this show was set in today's time, what would need to be changed for it to work?

Short answer: A lot.

Longer answer: Basically, the show would become a drama with some funny parts if it took place modern times. The sometimes problematic punchlines of T7S wouldn't be acceptable. Laurie being shamed for her enjoyment of sex, for instance, would have to be taken seriously, debated, and ultimately rejected. The difference among the characters' economic backgrounds would become more apparent with today's technology. Pot is more potent now (for several reasons), and its legality is growing across the country. The list of what would have to change is in the dozens.

Thank you for the thoughtful Q, Lulu! How do you think the show would change?

I think the basic concept of the show could still work, a bunch of teenagers hanging out in a basement and occasionally smoking weed. Since legality of marijuana is a much discussed topic, it could be worked into the show. Maybe the gang attends "Legalize it!"-rallies to show support, but have to do it secretly since their parents still wouldn't approve. Some of the more problematic jokes would probably have to go, I can see them expanding on pop culture jokes instead. The pop culture would obviously have to be a bit different, considering the amount of time between the 70s and now. Cell phones and social media would come into play, but it's tough to say how.

Ooh, Lulu, you answered!

Fez and Kelso would get into so much trouble on the internet. Unless Kelso retained his tech savvy from season 1, his computer would be virus-city. Fez would bug people with texts on their phones, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
