In October of 2002, That ’70s Show used to be going sturdy with its 5th season, debuting the episode “Heartbreaker” on the finish of the month. It introduced with it the creation of Kitty Forman’s (Debra Jo Rupp) folks and Eric Forman’s (Topher Grace) grandparents, Burt and Beatrice Sigurdson. The past due Tom Poston introduced Burt to existence, along Betty White as Bea, in a efficiency so out of personality that it is comprehensible in case you did not understand the journeyed actress used to be the one that pulled it off.
In distinction to her shy, soft-spoken husband, Bea is loud and without a doubt is not afraid to discuss her thoughts regardless of how impolite she sounds or who she’s talking to. Display screen Rant issues out that this abrasive angle went in opposition to Betty White’s established popularity as a candy previous girl, and this sturdy juxtaposition made just about each scene she’s in completely hilarious. Unfortunately, the Hollywood icon’s filterless alter-ego did not stick round on That ’70s Show for too lengthy, disappearing after most effective 4 episodes with the general being “Babe I am Gonna Go away You.”
In the long run, Bea Sigurdson is a minor addition within the That ’70s Show canon, although her presence made for some in point of fact nice moments. In a equivalent vein, Betty White’s time enjoying the nature is only a footnote within the grand scheme of her exceptional profession, but it surely endures as a spotlight for plenty of all of the identical.
