Who said you can't coin your own term? What is "Boning the Fish"? It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite TV Show, Celebrity, Movie Series or Music Group has reached its peak. That instant you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it a climax of sorts. We call it "Boning the fish". From that moment on things will simply never be the same.

Robin Williams - Celebrities
Robin Williams committed suicide after losing his battle with depression. Despite everything, he was still a funny guy and didn't deserve to die. Depression really is a deadly illness. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 12, 2014, 4:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Robin Williams - Celebrities
Sad, a man who brought joy, smiles and laughter to others couldn't find it for himself. If the reports are true, suicide is never the option. Nonetheless, rest in peace. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 12, 2014, 8:19 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Full House - TV Shows
Someone (SSM, to be exact) mentioned a visit to the show by Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) of "Family Ties." That must have been like a member of Mensa stopping by for this group. Oh, have I mentioned that "Full House" was the worst show in television history and that I hated it with every fiber of my being? It was and I did. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on August 8, 2014, 10:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

One Day at a Time - TV Shows
I think bringing on Howard Hesseman (late of "W-KRAP In Cincinnati") as Anne's love interest boned this shark. Never liked his Johnny Moonbeam character or him as an actor (remember "Head Of the Class"?), he added absolutely nothing to the series, so this was simply the kiss of death to an already terminal show. I do admit, however, that during the show's second season, I had a huge crush on Valerie Bertinelli (I KNEW I should have earned to play guitar!). -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on August 15, 2014, 6:23 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Office, The - TV Shows
Although the show hung on for at least a half season after Steve Carell left, with the two very funny "search Committee" episodes, it soon began to go down hill fast. With the emphasis more and more on Jim, Dwight and the insufferable Pam, as well as idiotic new characters (the fat guy with glasses and the supposed "stud" that Erin eventually falls for) led to a vapid and witless finale that endeared no one (Kelly abandoning a baby, Jim not taking a great job to be Dwight's flunky, Michael coming back with KIDS, Toby being humiliated - again) to the audience. Carell's character was shallow and moronic, but at least he was funny. Cannot say that aboutwhat he left behind - for the most part. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on August 8, 2014, 9:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Saved by the Bell - TV Shows
It boned the fish once Zack finally got Kelly. It was too hard to believe that Zack Morris, after fighting it out with Slater for one semester, could get Kelly in the snap of a finger. The show wasn't fun anymore once he got her. SBTB put the skin back on the fish once Kelly hooked up with Jeff. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on August 5, 2014, 1:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Family Matters - TV Shows
Ricky S. had to wear a female's wig too for Silver Spoons. The early dream sequences, Christmas specials, and Urkelbot were even alright. Hey,the writers had to prove Urkel had his smarts. I cannot the later stuff from like 1993 onward. That's when it boned for me. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on August 5, 2014, 1:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Family Matters - TV Shows
I know people who recorded the show and said it was better than Full House. They were right, then again, Full House is a smudge better than Barney and Friends. Here is where the show went wrong... I could tolerate the Urkel Dance, a rip-off of Princessa and The Bingo Boys Show Me How to Dance single. The first appearance of Jaleel dressed in drag as Myrtle was not so bad. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on August 5, 2014, 1:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Family Matters - TV Shows
Initially, this show was in line with most late 80s sitcoms. Instead of Roseanne, you had Harriet Winslow, a hard working elevator operator living in the mean streets of Chi Town. They, like the Bundys, were far from having the status the Huxtables had. Then, out of nowhere, a young man by the name of Steven Q. Urkel claimed he wanted to take Laura Winslow to the School dance and history was made. At first, Laura and Eddie were like most sitcom daughters and sons, but Laura went from being the smarter younger sister to being a tigeress. Without Urkel, though, she would have been invisible for the rest of the first season. People only tuned in from '90-'91 to see if Urkel would finally get his Laura. Needless to say, Urkel owned the very early 1990's -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on August 5, 2014, 1:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Family Matters - TV Shows
It jumped in the episode, The Way the Ball Bounces, when Urkel fills in for Laura Winslow and kisses Carl on the cheek or hugs him. I don't quite remember all of the details. It was too much for a child's show. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on August 5, 2014, 1:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Three's Company - TV Shows
Three's Company never was, isn't, and never should be considered a source of highbrow humor. The show was obviously far more inclined toward slapstick humor and double-entendre, and for the most part, it worked quite well. However, the episodes with Jenilee Harrison pushed the slapstick angle so hard it just became ludicrous. Cindy's klutziness got real old REAL fast. For that reason, to cite "Chrissy leaves" as the BTF point is a fair statement as far as it goes. To really be fair, though, you'd have to say that while the show boned when Chrissy left, it de-boned when Terri arrived and Cindy started being phased out. Once Terri's character was established and Cindy was gone, it seemed like the show had found its way again. Also, as ParkerTillman alluded, it certainly didn't hurt that Priscilla Barnes was far hotter than Somers or Harrison! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 5, 2014, 12:20 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Frasier - TV Shows
The early episodes were great, before Daphne went bonkers and Niles was still trying to deal with his unrequited love for her. Very funny writing and I agree, Frasier was a horrible person and was just waiting for the episode when Eddie pushed him out the window of the big fancy apartment of his! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:59 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Nurse Jackie - TV Shows
Good show. I don't know why but I love the character of Jackie, even though she cheated on her AWESOME husband, pretty much threw away her kids, steals, lies, cheats, and does anything she has to do to get her drugs. I know it sounds horrible but it really is a good show, very funny sometimes and heart breaking the next. Season before last she bonded with a teen age boy in rehab and it looked like they were helping each other stay sober, then the boy OD'd and died and Jackie went back to using. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Flipper - TV Shows
God what a weird show. You had a pair of teenage boys who apparently didn't own any clothes but had plenty of expensive scuba gear, a really handsome park ranger dad who didn't really seem interested in all of the women constantly throwing themselves at him, and a big grey aquatic mammal, played by Flipper, who had several IQ points more than the rest of the cast put together! Typical plot: one of the boys would do something incredibly stupid and get trapped underwater, the other boy and the dad would immediately go off in the wrong direction looking for him, and Flipper would save the day! The only other TV animal this smart was Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, who fly helicopters. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

All Creatures Great and Small - TV Shows
I thought this show was stuffy until Tristan showed up! What a big lovable goof! It was heart warming all the way through and showed how much people expected out of vets in those days! Even if they knew they would never be paid, they never turned down an animal in need of their care. I was delighted when I found out James Heriot was a real person and the TV show was based on his writings. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Grounded for Life - TV Shows
I don't know what was weirder, the show or the backstage shenanigans. Jake Burbage, who played the youngest boy, Henry, had a stage mother from hell. She constantly attacked the producers and writers for not making her son the breakout star which she was convinced was his destiny. The more she complained, the more they cut Henry's parts until they totally wrote him out of the entire final season! No explanation, just no Henry. It was like he never existed. Weird way to go with that instead of killing him off (sorta heavy to kill a child in a sit-com) or replacing him with another actor. Aside form that the show was actually pretty good, the clueless boy next door Brad (Bret Harrison) and Lily, the flaming red-hot sex kitten daughter were hysterical together. Donal Logue and Megan Pryce were good, too. Very believable modern day Irish Catholic couple in over their heads. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:23 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Deadwood - TV Shows
Awesome show and awesome cast! Ian McShane and Timothy Oliphant were incredible as foes. A lot of people were freaked out by the language but the show was set in the Old West and the town was populated by drunks, thieves, murderers, and whores! It was a treat to see what a town like Deadwood actually looked and sounded like back in the 1800s. It wasn't squeaky clean, people, it was dirty and nasty. I get a kick out if seeing an old western TV show and the bad guys say things like lily-livered varmint, and gosh danggit! It could be really sad, too, like when the Marshall's adopted son was killed in the street. Didn't see that one coming! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Whitest Kids U' Know, The - TV Shows
Ok, this is seriously funny stuff! My favorite skit was when these bored young dudes were hanging out around the office break room and one of them said something lame and another one started the, ummm self-pleasuring pantomime gesture, which his friends all found hysterical but he kept doing it, and doing it until finally he "finished." The other guys were horrified and said, "Dude! Don't finish, god! That's gross!" I laughed myself sick. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 3:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
