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.

Addams Family, The - TV Shows
People constantly compare this program to "The Munsters," and on the surface it's easy to see why: both series debuted in the same television season and both were about families that were peculiar in a horror B movie sort of way. HOWEVER, the difference was that "The Munsters" were all slapstick nonsense, while "The Addams Family" were full of passion! That was the secret ingredient that lifted The Addamses and their motley brood far above their Mockingbird Heights counterparts! The love story of Gomez and Morticia is the true centerpiece of this show, and that's what makes it so much superior to Herman and Lily. And really the passion plays out in everything, in their hobbies, in their caring for the people around them. Despite being creepy, kooky, mysterious, spooky and yes, altogether ooky, The Addams Family is genius. Big props to John Astin and Carolyn Jones who are still the hottest television couple in history, and to Ted Cassidy who was genius as Lurch, plus Jackie Coogan as Fester! And of course Vic Mizzy who gave us the great incidental music that scored the episodes and that memorable theme, still heard in ballparks all over the USA! Two snaps up. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 21, 2010, 10:02 am

Bewitched - TV Shows
I'm sure someone will correct me if this is wrong, but I had heard a story that Dick Sargent, who was the infamous "Second Darrin" was, in fact, the actor the production wanted originally to play the part. However, he wasn't available as they started shooting so they got Dick York instead! I think York was just a better comedy reactor, much like Larry Hagman in I Dream of Jeannie. He had the eyes and the expressions, he had the face for it and you need that to make a magical show like this work. Sargent was never capable of those sorts of reactions, just not a lot of range there. So, yes to the 2nd Darrin being "THE" moment, but I wonder if Sargent were the Darrin all along, how this show would have fared... -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 21, 2010, 9:42 am

I Dream of Jeannie - TV Shows
I think if there are legitimate reasons why something does or doesn't happen, we can overlook them. In the case of I Dream of Jeannie, we have an astronaut who is committed to helping the United States in its space quest. And, as we all know, astronauts had a very strict, squeaky clean image. In fact, most of them were family men, with wives, kids and houses. So, Captain Nelson, eventually Major Nelson was cut from that cloth. This is a viable reason for his not wanting Jeannie around in his life! Of course, eventually he came to understand that having her in his life made things a lot more interesting! Great credit to Larry Hagman who was brilliant at the reactions to everything, Barbara Eden who was like a two year old: all giggles and temper tantrums, Bill Daily who was the perfect foil for them both and let's not forget Hayden Roarke as Dr. Bellows, the psychiatrist that knew something was odd around Cocoa Beach, but could never quite prove it to anybody. His slow burns after he got shown up at the end of yet another episode really went a long way towards making this show a hit! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 21, 2010, 9:31 am

Adventures of Superman, The - TV Shows
"Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!" "Look! Up in the sky!" "It's a bird!" "It's a plane!" "It's Superman!" And certainly for its day, Superman was a fantastic series, with a remarkable cast of actors. Did you know that both Phyllis Coates and Noel Neill, who each played Lois Lane during the series are still around? Perhaps the only mistake was selecting such a recognizable building to represent "The Daily Planet" facade: Los Angeles City Hall! And budgetary restrictions meant that the only people inside that massive building were Clark Kent, Jimmy Olsen, Lois and Perry White. But if you can overlook those elements, you'll see some great work from George Reeves, a very likable Man of Steel as well as his ne'er do well cub photographer Jack Larson as Jimmy (and of course he's also still around)! Plus some really good stories, ideal for both kids and their parents to enjoy. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 21, 2010, 9:16 am

Just as a celebrity can bone if they get too liberal, a celebrity can bone if they get too conservative, too. For example, some people feel South Park boned when it became too political (many argue it became too conservative). Nobody likes a uber-political crusader, whether they're left or right. If you think Dawn Lyn is an annoying reason, you should have seen how many Dawn Lyn votes other shows got during the raid of the ballot stuffers over half a year ago. Other topics were affected, too. Most of the Never Boned votes went to liberal topics such as the ACLU (and were also the top reasons), while most of the Conservative topics had Day one as the top reason they boned. In fact, Jimmy Carter had over 200 votes for never boned just because he was a democrat! Some Conservative topics managed to get Never Boned as their top reason, though. It got so political that the Best of the Best page was littered with Liberal=Never Boned, Conservative=Day One as the highest votes (and of course, Dawn Lyn votes). The BTF staff had to delete reasons with suspected ballot stuffing until normal topics were once again in the Best of the Best page. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 20, 2010, 9:16 pm

Chicago - Music Groups
No, you've got it wrong-it was when Peter Cetera _took over_ the band, essentially, that it got Boned (partially but not wholly due to Kath's death, so that's what I voted). This was c. 10-15 years before he left. Before they became "adult contemporary" fodder, this was a thriving ensemble band-sure, they were recording lightweight fluff from the first album onwards, but there was enough rock and jazz and fusion here and there to maintain a certain level of gravitas. But then they decided to just focus on "soft rock" (oxymoron warning) with Cetera singing lead on just about every track, and their creativity & eclecticism simply died. -- Submitted By: (JohnDiFool) on August 20, 2010, 9:08 pm

Socialism - Random Topics
Yeah, Nazi was short for "National Socialists" but that doesn't mean they brought socialism to Germany or that was their main platform point(there are obvious others). Germany has traditionally been socialist regardless of where their political pendulum swings. Anyhow, I'm not a socialist but like it as a balance for capitalism. Pure capitalism may be more interesting but unbridled capitalism allows those who cheat or exploit the system get away with it. With capitalism there are winners and losers. The problem is what to do with the losers. Pure capitalists will say that the winners will hire the losers to work for them especially if they get lower tax rates. Ok, those workers will be hired but paid as low as possible no matter the tax rate is and if another nation can provide cheaper labor they will go there no matter how low the tax rate is. Capitalism has sense of patriotism just make money as efficiently as possible. So the question is what to do with the losers if they can't afford basic living needs? If those winners are not hiring them or paying them a decent wage, then the govt has to tax the winners to give the losers money to afford what they need. Either that or give them credit cards and put them in eternal debt. It is more complex than this but this why socialism exists. So the wealthy will still have to pay for the poorer in society whether they pay them for work or through the govt. Again, I might be oversimplifying this but this is just what I see. I'm not trying to be anti-capitalist or pro-socialist if that's how I come across but this is just the way I see things. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on August 19, 2010, 11:11 pm

Star Trek: Enterprise - TV Shows
I posted on JTS for this show the day before it went kaput. I can't even remember what I said though. Anyhow, this show really wasn't what I was expecting. It would have been better if they dealt with aliens that were talked about but never shown who were future UFP members and how humans encountered them(You should figure most of the first aliens encountered would become fed members). Instead they bring in TNG aliens(ie Ferengi, Borg) who really shouldn't have been heard of at this time or introduce new ones(which is fine in some cases). It was ok with the Andorians and the Klingons but there should have been something on how the Federation came in conflict with the Romulans(I didn't see every episode so correct me if I'm wrong). Anyway, the show was ok but not up to previous standards. I know some blame the "killer B's" Brandon Bragga and Rick Berman for the decline of the Star Trek franchise. I guess that could have been the problem too. Someone who's a bigger ST fan could elaborate possibly. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on August 19, 2010, 9:39 pm

Independence Day (USA) - Random Topics
The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means.

Wheel of Fortune - TV Shows
It kind of annoys me that this show isn't even vaguely about skilled play anymore. My family and I rarely fail to get the right answer 3 spins/vowel buys before any contestant, and we're hardly geniuses. Every other night a contestant will guess a letter that's already been guessed. They also show the contestants/hosts forever and give a shot of the actual puzzle for just a few seconds at a time, making it frustrating to play from home. Also the show has so much advertisement and other filler. We Tivo it and sit down 15 minutes in and we're caught up by Jeopardy. Without Tivo to cut the crap out I don't think we'd have the patience for Wheel anymore. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on August 18, 2010, 7:23 pm

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
There were a LOT of TNG episodes that were bad. The average episode was actually not that good, especially the ones devoted to the lamer characters. Then a lot of episodes weren't exactly duds but they were gimmicks that introduced something dramatic then it was all resolved by the end of the hour, never to be spoken of again. Jordy gets tortured and programmed into being an assassin, Riker discovers he has a clone, Picard discovers he has a son... they're all their generic selves a week later. The series was redeemed by the 2-part episodes, which other than the series premiere ranged from good to great. Also saving the series were a handful of excellent standalone episodes. But in between was a LOT of filler. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on August 18, 2010, 6:54 pm

Their "last" show was perfect. Pissing the audience out of a real concert that they paid for. Doing a crappy version of "no fun" with John Rotten announcing, "you'll get one number and one number only." Followed by, "you ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" That's pure Sex Pistols attitude, they should have never reunited after that "last" concert... especially as old, fat men. Even though I feel Sid sucked and was no more than a bass stand, when he died, they should have never pulled Glen back in the fold and continued on at a later date.

I'm vegan, it's a personal choice. I don't feel comfortable being responsible for doling out that kind of suffering and pain on any living being.

I also don't pull the "guilt-the-carnivores" stance either. People are so offended by people like me making a personal choice and I don't get why. It's the way I choose to live my life, that is all.

Great show. Characters that act human and genuine with lots of great humor, but nice messages as well. I like it because for the most part the family can watch this together and everyone enjoys it. The humor has a lot of adult references, but not overly abundant or crude, but it's not saccharine sweet or cheesy like Full House, Family Ties or the family sitcoms of old in the messages it has. Good balance and proof that the family sitcom can evolve and survive in the present age. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 17, 2010, 2:22 pm

ESPN - Random Topics
You know, I think ESPN has always been for the casual fan. At one point it was entertaining enough to appeal to everyone when Sportscenter was in its golden years, but really they've always been about watered down coverage for casual fans. A serious sports fan wants to see all or most of their team games, hear quality coverage and analysis from a full-time reporter... a serious fan is never going to be satisfied with Joe Morgan reading the notes someone else prepared for him and Chris Berman screaming cliches in lieu of providing any kind of meaningful analysis. But hey if you just want a bit of entertainment with sports in it, ESPN is there for you. That's their game plan.

Shazam! - TV Shows
There's really a whole lot of material to discuss with this show: the fact that Mentor and Billy were cruising around the Southwestern US in an RV together with the Captain Marvel lightning bolt on it in full view of anyone who wanted to look was part of it (and well, that relationship had more than a hint of Dr. Smith and Will Robinson to it). But clearly, when Jackson Bostwick, who WAS Captain Marvel I guess asked for too much money from the producers, they replaced him with a couch potato and totally out of shape Captain Marvel for spite!

The reason why Kim Possible worked so well, was the conceit that she was the perfect teen girl high school cheerleader, who just happened to be the daughter of a rocket scientist father and a brain surgeon mother, and of course, was saving the world when she wasn't finishing her homework! The episode plots recalled the camp and villainy of the TV version of Batman, and actually had almost as many worthwhile statements to say about high school life as MTV's "Daria!" Stuff about siblings, friends turning into lovers, the dreaded drivers' ed course and the always in use kim-unicator. I would argue that this was, and still is, the best Disney cartoon series, ever. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 16, 2010, 11:28 pm

Batman (1966) - TV Shows
Batman is remarkable proof that geeky and square can stand the test of time! Blame Producer William Dozier for insisting on the camp qualities of the Caped Crusaders. Blame the production team for getting unlikely special guest villains like Art Carney, Liberace and Zsa Zsa Gabor. Blame America for abandoning the program just as Yvonne Craig's Batgirl arrived. But you can't blame Adam West, the real, true Batman! His dual role as the impossibly straight Bruce Wayne, a millionaire playboy that didn't smoke or drink and Burt Ward, as his youthful ward, Dick Grayson were the backbone of the series, as well as the wonderful Alan Napier as the all-knowing Alfred. And of course Caesar Romero's Joker, Burgess Meredith's Penguin, Julie Newmar's Catwoman (with a nod to Eartha Kitt for being the most cat-like) and Frank Gorshin's Riddler (never John Astin's!)

Pee-Wee's Playhouse - TV Shows
Pee-Wee's Playhouse was bizarre for one simple reason: it began as an adult parody of a kids' tv show from LA's famed The Groundlings troupe, where Paul Reubens came up with all of the twisted, bizarre and winking double entendre references for his "The Pee-Wee Herman Show" (available on DVD and very much worth watching). The reason CBS likely allowed Reubens to bring the bulk of that staged performance to the kids of the 1980s was that even though it was clearly a sendup of those types of programs, all of the stuff that a kids' show was about was in place! It just needed to be cleaned up, and it mostly was.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip - TV Shows
The trouble this show had was trying to dramatize life behind the scenes of a comedy series. Keep in mind, this was on the same network as "Saturday Night Live," a show that is actually funny maybe a handful of times a SEASON. So, to show moments from a similar series as part of this program was a major detriment to the work. It's a lot easier to write to the drama than to the comedy, and I think we all discovered that with this series. That being said, the concept was an interesting one, with a really great cast and Aaron Sorkin overseeing it all. But really, the focus should have been on Amanda Peet's character, who I saw as what could have been the evolution of Mary Richards. The problem was why would she be so wrapped up in the doings on that late night show? We should have been following her character throughout, and occasionally looked in on the comedy show. That would have been a winner! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 16, 2010, 1:44 am

Malcolm in the Middle - TV Shows
I have just finished watching the entire series and I got to say, overall good to the end. Malcolm did become a bit antagonistic, however he was a teenager and that was a realistic character change which helped in some ways to the show. The baby did not ruin the show as much as it could have considering. They decided to leave it at a good point, a landmark in the main character's life which was done with and not arbitrarily in the middle of something else. Also, I have to the say show was far ahead of its time in many ways; a sitcom with no laugh-track, higher prominence in single camera, characters are less one-note, more down-beat in many ways as well as more over-the-top etc, there are many more examples. Long story short = good show. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on August 14, 2010, 4:55 pm

Lost in Space - TV Shows
This series may have undergone the most profound changes of any single television show. First, it was originally shot in black and white, where the storylines ran to the serious issues of a little American family in the vastness of the universe and the problems of dealing with the creatures they encountered and trying to find their way either back home or to their destination of Alpha Centauri. That first season featured some very dramatic and rather powerful stuff! But then, it went to a full color format and, thanks primarily to the success of the television version of "Batman," the producers chose to start doing camp style storylines, turning the sinister saboteur Dr. Zachary Smith into the pedantic comedic star, with the Robot and Will Robinson always at hand as his foils. I never understood why Dr. Smith was so thrilled with the concept of returning to Earth. He would have just been arrested for his acts and thrown in ja... oh, on second thought, I get it now. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 13, 2010, 1:39 pm

Let's Make a Deal - TV Shows
Let's Make a Deal is a game that was truly made by the host. Monty Hall had the fast patter and oiliness of a used car salesman in his role as emcee, and he was the ultimate! Watching him whip through the contestants and bamboozling them with the various offers of boxes, curtains and doors was sheer genius. Without him, the show really never worked, and even in the current version, with Wayne Brady doing the hosting, is just a placeholder for Hall's fiendish ability to confuse and confound! It wasn't about the game at all, it was Monty's ability to put those costumed characters through their paces! If there is a hell, the devil would dream of being Monty Hall! -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 13, 2010, 1:26 pm

Love, American Style - TV Shows
In theory, "Love, American Style" was a good idea. Start with a universal theme and have different takes on it, featuring a mix of up and coming stars and veteran actors. Two problems: 1. No standards. The writing for this show was all over the map, and mostly bad, or at least forgettable! 2. No stability. Even the classic anthology series "The Twilight Zone" had Rod Serling week after week to help lend some regularity to the proceedings. This is why "The Love Boat" succeeded where this show failed: they a regular cast of characters interacting with the guests. If "Love, American Style" had better, more consistent writing, focused their storylines to be a bit more cohesive and able to make some actual statements about what love means and how it might relate to the audience, and maybe had at least some regular host or characters that were constant, it would have done a lot better. -- Submitted By: (TheDeanofNYC) on August 13, 2010, 1:17 pm

Video Games - Random Topics
I was a huge gamer back in the day, but not to the point kids are today. When I played games, it was a diversion with friends for an hour, maybe 2, to kill some time during summer vacation or Christmas break. Now, kids play games ALL DAY LONG and never go outside, exercise, or have real life friends besides those they meet through playing their games. I feel it's definitely one of the major causes of the rising rate of obesity, yet it doesn't seem to get the same flack that candy, soda and fast food companies do. Sure, video games get flack, but more for the violence factor, not the obesity one. Then again, the gaming culture was a lot different in the 80s and 90s. Arcades were still popular and it was cool to go to an arcade, challenge people, drink some big gulps and eat some pizza, and maybe make a few new friends or having your friends over and playing 2 player games on the Genesis or SNES. Now it's more an activity done alone in your own home with "cyber" friends. Games back in the day had more variety. Now it's just WoW type games or first-person shooters. And like previous posters, 3-D games make me sick... So yes, I think video games have boned, probably around the time the WII and XBox 360 came out, so early to mid 2000s. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 12, 2010, 2:57 pm

Sagging - Random Topics
I remember driving through a neighborhood in Los Angeles about 13 years ago and seeing some guy with those big baggy hanging down pants and a friend in the car with me said "Man I sure will be glad when that stupid A--ed look goes out of style." Little did I know 13 years later it would still be around. Ugh. I sincerely hoped that that particular style of pants would become to the 90's what 'Elephant Bells' were to the 70's. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 12, 2010, 2:37 pm

Sagging - Random Topics
My girlfriend is always disgusted at the sight of some asshole who thinks its cool to have your pants so low, your boxers showing. I never got it myself, and if I didn't feel like getting into a fight, would probably help the rest of the trip down for the person's pants. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 12, 2010, 5:26 am

Wikipedia - Websites
There is this guy who runs a website called "MyWikiBiz.com" that got banned from editing wikipedia because he had the "nerve" to have people pay him to edit wikipedia all within their established rules and guidelines. He was open about it but some holier-than-thou admins didn't like it even though he didn't "POV push." Anyhow he started the MyWikibiz site for businesses and really anybody to promote themselves. Perhaps whoever runs this site could start their own page there about BTF. Have you ever noticed that a wikipedia link always seems to be in the top 10 results? This guy appears to know how it's done. Perhaps you guys should contact him. His name is Greg Kohs. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on August 11, 2010, 8:57 pm

For Better or For Worse wasn't the same after Farley died - anytime there was a death in the strip after Farley (notably Elly's mom and Mr. B (the rabbit)) - I half-expected another flood of letters printed in the editorial page of my local newspaper that had variations on the theme of "Comics are supposed to be funny!

WIRE, The - TV Shows
Just watched this entire series over the summer - hands down one of the best TV shows, ever. The writing and acting were so amazing. Every episode was like a movie. I enjoyed the fact they changed the investigations/focus by season and you never knew what was coming next. I never felt like it was predictable. And come on, Omar is easily one of the best characters ever made. Just great all around. I love when I catch the actors from the Wire on other series, they all deserve as much airtime as they can get. -- Submitted By: (elizacron) on August 9, 2010, 10:35 am

Office, The - TV Shows
If the debacle that was last season didn't tip me off that this show was near the boning point, the announcement from Steve Carell that he intends to leave the show after the seventh season does. It's obvious the best storylines have been done already and that the writers are scrapping up whatever they can find. The Sabre merger, Kathy Bates, Jim and Pam becoming domesticated, Andy and Erin's on again-off again relationship, Dwight going from an annoying kiss ass to a gross slut, Ryan turning emo and strange... I think the writers could take the opportunity to use the season to tie up all the storylines, give some closure, let Steve Carell go from TV and movies to movies only on a high note, and end the show before it definitely bones. In all likelihood, they won't do that and the show will end up going on for too long. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 8, 2010, 3:06 pm

Spyro the Dragon (video game series) - Random Topics
I'm inclined to agree that after the original trilogy, the Spyro series went downhill. Enter the Dragonfly was a bug-ridden piece of trash (tons of visual glitches, long load times, and a story that seemed like it was thrown together 5 minutes before the deadline), A Hero's Tail was a bit better, and after that...just don't know. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on August 8, 2010, 9:32 am

There are customers who totally abuse the "customer is always right policy."

That's a big reason why that, unless in my opinion it has gone downhill from a certain point and there is no turning back (and even then, that can sometimes be a bit borderline), I stay away from shows that are still on the air.

VHS - Random Topics
There is nothing wrong with VHS, it's true that tracking can be a problem and tape heads have to be cleaned, but I think it served well as a visual medium for 20 good years before DVDs showed up. And to the one who submitted that the more superior Betamax format was replaced, the problem with Beta was that it did not have a long enough recording time for movies, only one hour compared to two hours on VHS. Introducing an SLP mode to double recording time didn't work in their favor because the same setting on VHS made their recording time even longer, and because of this convenience Beta was unable to compete. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on August 5, 2010, 10:57 am

When DVD first came out, I didn't drop VHS like a hot potato. It took me a couple of years before deciding to give it a try.

I can't say I agreed with everything he said but I will always admire the fact that he ADMITTED cigarettes were what doomed him and strongly urged young folks not to start(as did Yul Brynner) when he could have kept the denial to the end- oblivious to others' following the coffin nail worshipping example. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 5, 2010, 9:49 am

Ropers, The - TV Shows
Mythigator, Way back in the late 1950's, during the last days of "I Love Lucy", the Arnazes and CBS wanted to spin off the Mertzes into their OWN series but Vivian Vance REFUSED even for extra monies because she didn't want to chance bedroom scenes with Bill Frawley (and did her best to avoid getting too close to him in the original series- the two somewhat detested each other). Anyway, consider this series a 70's version of how THAT show might have gone had Vance been willing to tolerate bedroom scenes with Frawley. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 5, 2010, 9:33 am
