Bone The Fish - Most Recent Comments!

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.

I played the whole 'Where's George?' thing for about a year. Finally got fed up with it when none of my bills were coming back, so I just quit.

1990's - Random Topics
The 90s was a fun decade. That was my high school years and it was a great time to be a teenager. There were good sitcoms on TV. The Simpsons was king and you also had Friends, Home Improvement, NYPD Blue, and the X-Files. This was the last time that there were regularly good sitcoms on TV, before reality TV took over. The 90s witnessed the decline of MTV but had some decent music until the bubblegum music of the latter part of the decade took over and hip-hop and rap became the norm. The 90s ended on September 11, 2001. I guess you can't really say it boned, it just went past its prime (except in fashion which still seems to be hanging on). As an aside, does anyone else think the transition period from about 1989-1991 was such an awkward time period? It was a weird bridge between the two decades. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 12, 2010, 1:04 pm

Unit, The - TV Shows
I think Evan227 you hit it right on the head. Who wouldn't want to watch elite Delta operators put into impossible situations that keep you on the edge of your seat each week.... Well, women and Sci-Fi nerds. I think they started trying too hard to change the audience of the show and it really caused it to bone. However, boned or not, if it comes down to watching "The Unit" or "The New Adventures of Old Christine" I know where my money is going. It's not going Julia Louis-Dreyfus, just to make that clear. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 11, 2010, 4:53 pm

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - TV Shows
While this show (along with the entire Terminator storyline) has its time holes, I liked the idea of seeing the Terminator series in a TV format. I think Lena Headey did an amazing job as Sarah Conner and Summer Glau was a great choice as a terminator (cause who's really gonna think she could kick your ass). Even though Thomas Dekker was kind of whiney as John Conner the rest of the cast held the story together. Although I liked Green's character of Derek Reese I thought it was incredibly ballsy to just end him with one shot in the last season. It shows realism and no matter how badass you may be or how much of a main character you are, you're no match for a terminator. I really wanted to see where this show went and felt it was cancelled before the entire story could be told (or even ruined) and don't think it got the chance to bone. That could also have been a good thing. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 11, 2010, 4:44 pm

Garfield and Friends - TV Shows
I don't think you should take the movie into consideration when attempting to determine whether or not the TV series "Garfield and Friends" ever boned. The movie is in a whole different spectrum than this show and I think you could put it into consideration if it were "Garfield and Friends the Movie" instead of the "Crappy CGI Adventures of a Cat That Was Once Garfield." I think if you stick to what formula the show used it never really changed for its run: Garfield short, US Acres short and Garfield short. It was a fun show when I was a kid and since I don't recall the new characters of Game Boy or the Great Gazoo ever showing up to spice up the later seasons I'd say it never really boned. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 11, 2010, 4:34 pm

McDonalds - Random Topics
Not a McDonald's fan and haven't eaten there in years. I personally don't think the food tastes good, but that's my opinion. Having said that, McDonald's boned the fish when they dumped the McDonaldland characters and started the "I'm lovin' it" campaign aimed for urban audience. The ads bug the crap out of me and seem to be pandering. Also, I love how they only emphasize their healthy options these days. I can't remember the last ad I saw for a Big Mac or Quarterpounder, but seem to see ones for the snack wraps and coffee pretty much all the time. Most people I know who go to McDonald's don't go for their salads, they go for their burgers or chicken McNuggets. Oh well, McDonald's will always be a good way to relieve constipation. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 11, 2010, 2:39 pm

Action 52 (NES) - Random Topics
Believe it or not, I actually got to play Action 52 on a REAL cartridge. Before AVGN's review came around. So, when did Action 52 bone the fish? For me, it's a tie: realizing how many glitches there actually are, the awful controls, and how stupid the games' premises were: A guy with giant feet stomping on eyeballs. A giant baby climbing furniture and squirting milk at adults half its size. Indecipherable mishmashes of pixels shooting odd-looking bullets at other indecipherable mishmashes of pixels. And with that last sentence, I summed up the premises for more than half the games. But if I have to choose the one game which proved A52 BTFed, I guess it should be Cheetahmen. Why? Because you'd think the other games were poorly made because all the attention went to this one. Sadly for those who paid $199 for this cart, Cheetahmen is only SLIGHTLY better than the other games. And even then, I'm being too generous in calling it "slightly better". The truth came to light: these people couldn't get even ONE game right, tried to cover it up by making 51 games which were worse, then tried to get rich off it by tricking unsuspecting buyers into getting 52 "new and original" games for less than $4 each. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 11, 2010, 1:30 pm

Tim Burton - Celebrities
I don't care for Burton's movies in general, but I thought he nailed it with the Planet of the Apes remake. He took some creative liberties (but not nearly as many as the 1960s "Apes" movie series), but overall he did fine. As for the "nonsensical ending," you'll have to dig up Pierre Boulle (the author of the original Planet of the Apes book) and take it up with him, because that's the way HE ended the story. As for Burton's BTF moment, I'd have to say it was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Not only was the movie a snoozer, but it was also a highly questionable creative decision to have Depp as Wonka bear such a strong resemblance to Michael Jackson. Since MJ at that time was all over the news for child molestation charges, it just came off as creepy. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 11, 2010, 10:45 am

Street Fighter - Random Topics
Capcom is kind of damned if they do/don't with regards to characters. They tried an all-new cast of characters in the first version of Street Fighter III and people hated them. I wasn't fond of any of the SF3 original characters either. They were corny and weren't iconic at all. I liked them all up until 3 came out. But the story has gotten progressively more and more ridiculous. I can deal with crazy chi energy balls and such; the first two games seemed like a kung-fu movie. But now we've got robots, cyborgs, clones, mind control, people coming back from the dead, etc. SF4 was a step up from 3 though. Still haven't played Super SF 4. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 10, 2010, 3:00 pm

I keep waiting for a big ol' gator to come up out of the water and grab that dog. And then there's Junior. He didn't take too kindly to that Italian fashion designer going along on the gator fishing trip. He kept calling him "Italy Guy". Gotta love these Cajuns!

Tim Burton made great movies in the past like PeeWee's Big Adventure, Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, and more. However, when Charlie and the Chocolate Factory came along, I heard the Jaws theme. I can't put my finger on when he boned exactly, but I knew it already happened when I saw Alice in Wonderland.

It was a really foolish move to quit as Alaska's governor. It made her look like a quitter. And while I neither love nor hate her, I agree with kingbk that the jokes about her are getting old.

For me, I would say it was Planet of the Apes. I don't know what he was thinking trying to remake something so iconic. And that nonsensical ending! Actually, I should have known what was coming with his previous work, Sleepy Hollow. Hollow was so predictable by-the-numbers Burton. Johnny Depp? Check. Mess up the character's background to make him more "goth" and "edgy"? Check; instead of a teacher he's now a mortician. White makeup to make the already white cast even whiter? Check.

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - TV Shows
The first season was sometimes fun in a campy, 'Batman-ish' sort of way; but the second season was awful. No Dr. Huer, stupid replacement voice for Twiki (whom I never much liked from the get-go, but I made allowance for, as long as he was voiced by the great Mel Blanc), and Gil Gerard was still not going to be confused with an actor as a result of the changeover. The real kiss of death came when they introduced Roddy McDowell to the cast; nothing against Roddy, whom I always liked, but any series that he was in or joined as a castmember was always guaranteed to have a very short broadcast life. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 8, 2010, 3:52 pm

Bob Knight - Celebrities
The whole yelling and throwing a temper tantrum style of coaching (or management) is ineffective in the long term. It might work in the short term for success, but after a while people get tired of it, tune you out, and look for a better situation. That's exactly what happened with Bob Knight. For a while, his chair-throwing, curse-spewing behavior won him championships and respect, but by the mid 90s it grew thin and the University of Indiana, as well as basketball fans in general, were tired of it. By the time he went to Texas Tech, he didn't have the same aura. Sure, I think our society has gotten softer over the years, which I personally don't like, but nobody should be treated like dirt either. There has to be a balance between being babied and being abused. I'll give Knight credit for as bad tempered as he was, he never cheated like many college coaches do today. In fact, besides his temper, he ran a clean program. That's one positive thing I can say about him. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 8, 2010, 3:43 pm

I was okay with Rap when it was fun Sugar Hill Gang, MC Hammer, Young MC, Etc. However, it did seem that at one point in the early 90's it looked almost as if Rap was starting to die out and give way to something else when Rick Dees went on the Arsenio show and stated with confidence that Rap was 'on the way out.' That, to me seems to be the point where Rap rallied and went into overkill mode with all of the "cop-killer" and hyper-sexualized themes.

If you're a fan of movies at all, you have to at least respect Spielberg. I don't like all of his movies, but he has made some classics (Jaws, Indiana Jones, E.T., Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, etc.) and his involvement in TV is pretty remarkable too (Animanics, ER, Band of Brothers, etc.) He's a bit more smug and arrogant than I care for, but if you've reinvented the way movies are made and developed many of the innovations now taken for granted, you have every right to be that way. He hasn't been quite the hit maker he was from the 70s-90s, but he still can pull out some award winning material, so I don't think he has boned the fish. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 8, 2010, 11:48 am

George Carlin - Celebrities
I liked George Carlin's style of the 70s and early 80s, when he managed to be funny and irreverent and project a demeanor of "I'll take a swipe at anything that deserves to be made fun of," which allowed for quite a lot of possible comic material. However, in the mid-to-late 80s (I forget when exactly) he released an album that was nothing but one long conservative/religious bashing kick, and instead of being funny he came off like he was out for blood. (Instead of "I'll take a swipe at anything," his demeanor was "Killl 'em all and take no prisoners.") I'm fine with a healthy amount of humor at the expense of my own viewpoint, but that album completely left me cold. It took a LONG time for Carlin to regain any cred (in my view) as a funnyman and thought provoker, and even then, I never bought or listened to another one of his albums, nor did I buy or read any of his books. The world is a poorer place for Carlin's having left it (with one less influence to keep it on its intellectual toes), but as far as I'm concerned, the release of that album is when he boned the fish. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 6, 2010, 6:33 pm

Angel - TV Shows
Just started watching this and Buffy on Netflix, never was interested when they were on TV. Have to say I was doubtful Angel could have a series around the character but the first 2 seasons were pretty good. Around the middle of the 3rd season they really messed up the dynamic and then slowly, episode by episode dismantled the entire series. What made it a good show was the mixture of the anti-hero as the hero with the rag-tag team bonding together to make their own little family. Strange family, but still one that cared about each other and fought side-by-side. Some interesting characters (Lorne, Cordy, Fred, Doyle) Stopped watching towards the end of S3, caught a few S4 and S5 episodes, then just read the recap of the series finale on Wiki. Glad I did waste my time. I'm just choosing to pretend Angel went off the air after Connor was born. -- Submitted By: (elizacron) on September 6, 2010, 12:22 am

State fairs are a good indication of who in the music business is washed-up. It's pretty sad who comes out of the woodwork to perform at these. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 5, 2010, 9:58 pm

George Carlin was very funny. He never did lose his edge. The only problem I had was that he spent too much time griping about religion. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 5, 2010, 9:43 pm

Sports Night - TV Shows
I WISH they would come out with this on DVD without the freaking laugh track. The writing is classic Aaron Sorkin, but man that laugh track is really horrid. -- Submitted By: (AmyMcAwesome) on September 5, 2010, 1:57 pm

All in the Family - TV Shows
I noticed as the series moved on, Archie became less of a stubborn bigot and seemed to see things from Meathead's point of view every so often. And I've only watched all episodes from the first six seasons on DVD - season 7 is due out somewhere in the next couple of months (thanks Shout Factory!). -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 5, 2010, 8:58 am

18 Kids and Counting - TV Shows
By the time menopause sets in, they'll probably have 25 kids at least. The Duggars are proving nothing by pumping out kid after kid year after year and exploiting them on TV. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 5, 2010, 8:55 am

Dixie Chicks - Music Groups
Boned when Natalie opened her big mouth and spewed that vitriol about Bush while performing on the other side of the pond. Guess nobody told them that loose lips sink ships.

JumptheShark.com - Websites
I worked on the website for jts, first just as a commenter but then I started handling the "Stump the Shark" questions before all of the websites about television and wikipedia existed, and that earned me a chance to be a moderator for the site's ancillary newsgroup (that, surprisingly, actually still exists - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jumptheshark/ ) Reading through that group's message board is a little bit like the old site, and I see that some of the BTF people have been active there as well. Obviously, the problem was TV Guide was completely clueless about how to make the site work for them. Why they didn't consult with Hein about it is a mystery, but then again, TV Guide (who had the market cornered on presenting television facts and giving the listings for FOREVER) lost its way with that as well. I submitted an article to them about 30 Rock being the new Mary Tyler Moore a year into that show's run... I consider it a badge of honor that they rejected it! CLUELESS! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on September 4, 2010, 10:07 am

Quark - TV Shows
Brilliant parody of S/F shows, most especially "Star Trek," with Richard Benjamin as the overly earnest title character: the captain of a space garbage scow, and his ridiculous crew of bizarre characters! The show stood on its own as funny, but the more you knew about other programs and film of its genre, the more hilarious it was! With all of the SyFy "important" series that have been airing, and in the wake of all of the more recent "Trek" shows and films, we are more than ready for a program like this one to return and skewer the universe with some hilarious attacks!@ -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on September 4, 2010, 9:12 am
