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.

TV Guide - Random Topics
Long before it bought out the JTS site, and long before it became a tabloid, TV Guide was, believe it or not, a magazine of some substance. My grandmother used to save TV Guides occasionally, from the late 60s up until about 1990. When I last looked through the collection, I was stunned at how different the content was back in that era. There were articles about TV shows and actors to be sure, but you also had articles about the industry itself, and even articles pertaining to world news. One cover from 1981 had an illustrated - yes, illustrated - portrait of Prince Charles and Princess Diana to commemorate their wedding. They actually had (gasp!) covers with people over the age of 40 on them! And of course, they had detailed local listings, and lots of them. But all of that has changed now. With the new magazine size came not only fewer listings but pointless tabloid fluff. You now have covers with headlines like "The Ten Sexiest Celebrities" and "Who looked sluttiest on this week's Dancing With The Stars?". I don't know if all of this is a consequence of the failing magazine industry, or perhaps just the dumbing down of America, all I know is that I want no part of TV Guide anymore (unless maybe there ends up being a toilet paper shortage in the near future). -- Submitted By: (Strenikstund) on September 3, 2009, 10:54 pm

I like the Heaven/Hell ending theory. And Dolfan, you're right about them not stopping the guy...I don't expect any average Joe to stop an armed mugger (it's SUICIDE!). But the thing is, even though they caught the incident on tape, their motive for doing so was selfish and cruel. It wasn't to get evidence, it was to enjoy watching the guy get mugged and to laugh at his weight. On top of which, they didn't help him at all after the attack (even after the mugger was long gone). They just leave. No asking if he's all right, no providing information to the cops, nothing. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 31, 2009, 12:43 pm

Superman - Movie Series
Superman III represented a drastic step downward, and in Superman Returns Bryan Singer & Co. did absolutely the right thing by ignoring the third and fourth movies. Even so, Superman III wasn't the BTF moment. In his autobiography "Still Me," Christopher Reeve spent most of a chapter talking about what it was like making the Superman movies. He wrote at length about Superman I and II, and even had some nice things to say about working with Richard Pryor on Superman III. About the next movie, however, Reeve wrote a single sentence: "The less said about Superman IV, the better." Take it from the Man of Steel himself: The Superman movie franchise boned the kryptonite fish with the fourth movie. Superman Returns brought it back, and hopefully when Brandon Rauth writes his memoirs we won't be seeing the words "the less said, the better" in conjunction with any Superman movies HE appeared in. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 30, 2009, 9:29 pm

Seinfeld - TV Shows
BTW Robert, the fact that Kramer records the incident on tape is actually HELPFUL to the cops, since they'd now be able to see the crime and who's perpetrating it. Furthermore charging across the street to stop an armed robber is about as stupid as one can be. Even with my afterlife theory the gang being arrested for not helping still makes absolutely no sense. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 30, 2009, 5:37 pm

Seinfeld - TV Shows
Still watch every Seinfeld rerun I have time for, because even an episode I've already seen 15 times is better than 99% of new stuff on TV. I saw a theory about the finale online years ago (not my own) that makes sense to me. When Kramer jumps up and down on the private plane he causes it to crash and they all die. What we see for the rest of the show is their afterlife. The whole courtroom scene is the gang literally being judged on their worthiness for heaven--or hell. In the end they get sent down below, and "hell" for them is having to spend an eternity in the same jail with each other. Of course that doesn't make it right but it does put a different and maybe more explainable context on things. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on August 30, 2009, 5:34 pm

Star Wars - Movie Series
I caught a show on History Channel that covered Star Wars, and they were basically saying how it makes sense that someone like Darth Vader would start out being a whiney emo teenager like Anakin. I was flabbergasted. In the old movies, I recall Obi-Wan telling Luke that his father Anakin was a good man. How does Anakin being a whiney emo teenager make Obi-Wan's statement true? That's a continuity error right there! And think about this: if he won't obey the Jedis because he's a rebellious teenager, why is his "rebellious teenager" persona suddenly gone when he becomes Darth Vader and obeys everything Darth Sidious tells him to do? When he learns that Padme died, why didn't he rebel against him too, for failing to keep up his end of the bargain (Anakin becomes a Sith in exchange for Sidious protecting her from death)? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 30, 2009, 1:38 pm

Organic Farming - Random Topics
Though I slam organic methods, I keep an open mind: I dip into it now and then, because there are some organic foods which actually taste better than their conventional counterparts at my grocery store. Nobody in their right mind wants animals to be mistreated (on top of which, sick and abused animals pass on their illnesses to the food they make/are made into). With the human population going up and up, factory farming was used to make food faster and cheaper. With the Earth's human population of 6.5 Billion going up, going organic is becoming less practical. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 30, 2009, 12:52 pm

That '70s Show - TV Shows
Back in the good old days of the Site Which Shall Not Be Named, someone had made a brilliant comment regarding the character development of That 70s Show, and why the show should have ended with its 5th season. Since no one here has commented on Red's Heart Attack yet, I'll try to recreate those long-lost comments here. Up until the second-to-last episode of Season 5, That 70s Show had been a story about growing up. Most of this growth happened from the point of view of Eric Foreman, with the Eric/Donna relationship as a focal point, but the coming-of-age theme was true of the other characters as well. In Season 1, Eric was a timid, nervous geek who couldn't get the girl or stand up to his father. He had no idea what he wanted to do with his life (aside from sitting in the circle). But by Season 5, Eric was a (more) confident geek; he was able to stand up to his father and eventually earn his respect; and even though the path was rocky, he eventually got the girl and had learned many lessons about relationships along the way. By Season 5, Eric was planning to go to college. He and Donna were going to find a life together, leaving their small town behind to experience the world, come what may. Other characters were growing up too. Season 5 saw Fez finally lose his virginity with his DMV co-worker; Kelso finally got smart and realized he didn't want to be with Jackie anymore, because of her constant put-downs; when Hyde and Jackie got together, Hyde became more committed, and Jackie less superficial. And they were all (except for Jackie) getting ready to graduate. That should've been where the show ended. Granted, That 70s Show had already officially Boned by Season 4 (musical episode, anyone?), but the show itself was still salvageable. Had it ended with "Celebration Day", had Eric and Donna gone off into the sunset and the other four characters gone their separate ways, the show could have left the airways with some modicum of dignity. But noooooo..... the network just had to intervene. You see, That 70s Show was a ratings extravaganza, so why stop it there? Enter Red's Heart Attack. The "perfect" excuse to keep Eric and Donna down on the farm and stunt their growth, and keep "the gang" together in truly contrived style. Eric became a lout; gone were his college plans, and by the end of Season 6, gone was his commitment to Donna when he ditched his own wedding. Before that moment, Eric had always been a bit of a loser, but always a loveable loser, and someone with redeeming qualities. But by Season 7, I truly began to dislike his character, and I think that it is this event (and not Topher's departure) that put the final nail in the 70s Show coffin. Eric Foreman was the keystone of show; if you didn't sympathize with him, there was no point. And with his character ruined, everything else fell apart. Donna went from being a worldly college-bound woman to a 2-dimensional girl (all blondeness aside); Fez went from comically naive to perverted; Kelso... Shannon Elizabeth's baby-daddy? Really?; Hyde became the proud owner of a record store (uh-oh... New Setting); Jackie went to work for a Mary Tyler Moore... nuff said. Of course I could go on about Randy, and about the way the authenticity of the 70s era sets and wardrobes began to slip, but that would be beside the point. After they graduated from high school, the coming-of-age arc was complete, and the show was creatively finished. Seasons 6 through 8 are a painful testament to that fact. I can't say for sure whether or not Fox requested that the writers change the end of Season 5, but it wouldn't surprise me, because Red's Heart Attack feels so tacked-on. The moral of this story is, creativity is far more important than longevity. Let the story end when it has to. -- Submitted By: (Strenikstund) on August 29, 2009, 10:59 pm

Organic Farming - Random Topics
Even if one doesn't care about how livestock or produce gets raised, one thing that comes out of organic farming as that the food generally tastes FRESHER and better than conventionally raised foods. Not that this is in my budget to pay for every single meal, but,for example, I like how organic eggs taste the way I remember farm fresh eggs tasting in my childhood as opposed to them tasting like they were spat out of a machine.

Wasn't this originally one of the hard-to-find channels where you had to call your cable or satellite company just to get it? I even remember the commercials, where they would, for instance, take a clip from "My Three Sons" and replace the original lines with lines that you would hear from recent shows (the father in the clip said he had a surprise; he was going to get a nose ring! LOL) as an example of what TV is like now, and TV Land is the only place for safe, fun, classic TV! Well, all of that is completely gone now, and although some old shows remain, the feeling isn't just the same anymore. Now we've gone to showing recent shows and (GASP!) reality shows!

I apologize to the guy below, but the Rareware series of "Donkey Kong" games are the best games ever made! I played all 3 of the Super NES DKC games, and I even played "DK64" on the Nintendo 64! I also played their Game Boy counterparts as well. Don't worry; it's just an opinion! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on August 28, 2009, 6:21 pm

Good Times - TV Shows
Of course they boned when James died. It's a SITCOM for crying out loud. What's so funny about a father getting killed in a car wreck and leaving a wife and 3 kids? -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on August 28, 2009, 6:20 pm

Crank Calls/Prank Calls - Random Topics
My favorite kind of prank calls are the ones by Bo and Jim on Lone Star 92.5! (Just Google in "Lone Star 92.5" and find the "Bo and Jim" page!) They do everything from "Wake Up Slaps" to "Trusted or Busted"! Although I don't condone doing these kind of calls, these "losers" on the radio sure know how to put their imaginations and vocal talents to the test! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on August 28, 2009, 6:19 pm

CMT:Country Music Television - Random Topics
Thanks to whoever put in "Reality Shows" for a vote! How are "Extreme Makeover: Trash That House" and "Nanny 911" COUNTRY, huh????? Looks like CMT will go the way of another old Viacom station, TNN (they became Spike in 2003). -- Submitted By: (SVN) on August 28, 2009, 6:16 pm

Frosty the Snowman - TV Shows
Frosty Returns. What an awful, awful sequel to a classic show. The animation looked bad, the villain sucked, he and his cat looked horribly done, and the plot was crap. I expected to see a story about CHRISTMAS! Or a virtue, like sharing, kindness, or giving to those in need. What do we get here instead? How about a bunch of idiots spraying aerosol all over the place because they hate snow, thus making them a bunch of "Grinches" who are, essentially, stealing Christmas? Add in the fact that Frosty was not voiced by Jackie Vernon as he was in the other Frosty shows (I know, I know, the reason for that was Vernon having died before Frosty Returns was released), and did I mention the continuity errors? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 28, 2009, 1:12 pm

Paparazzi - Random Topics
These people are lower than low. Calling them pond scum would be complimenting them. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 28, 2009, 12:54 pm

Organic Farming - Random Topics
What's worse is that organic methods aren't even "better for the Earth" like these environmentalists make them out to be. I mean, if you were going to produce 100,000 gallons of milk, the organic method would require more cows (didn't the environmentalists say something about how cow farts causing global warming? So why would you want MORE cows to make MORE farts?), and more farmland (sorry, nature, but you're losing more land to promote "Earth-friendly" methods!) as opposed to non-organic methods. I could understand people going organic if they were allergic or something to pesticides, hormones, etc. used by non-organic methods, but... -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 28, 2009, 12:53 pm

Fawlty Towers - TV Shows
Okay, just to clarify, I was responding to Greg. (really should change my nick to nickpicker...) -- Submitted By: (Tatiana) on August 28, 2009, 10:47 am

Man vs. Wild - TV Shows
Peli, you are right about "Bear," but it's pretty close to being a given name. His real name is Edward Michael Grylls, nicknamed "Bear" as an infant by his older sister when he was just a week old, according to his Wiki bio. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bear_Grylls) -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 28, 2009, 6:09 am

Back to the Future - Movie Series
This was a good series that stayed strong all the way through and ended when it should have. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on August 27, 2009, 4:31 pm

Ellen (TV series) - TV Shows
I didn't care that Ellen was gay. It was the fact that the show quit being funny and that was all they could talk about. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on August 27, 2009, 4:29 pm

High School Musical - Movie Series
Makes you long for traditionally animated movies even more. Come on, Disney! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 27, 2009, 2:23 pm

IKEA Furniture - Random Topics
If one's a European who has to transport everything by bicycle or train, it makes sense to get unassembled furniture that takes up as little bulk as possible during transport. However; if one lives in a country where one has a car or truck, about the only reason to get this furniture is to be able to impress your friends that you were able to take hours to put together furniture that looks exactly like. .. furniture non-professionals put together. Me, I'd rather find a pre-assembled piece of antique furniture at a thrift store! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 27, 2009, 1:53 pm

Beastie Boys, The - Music Groups
OK, I hate to do this but because I only want to share factual info and NOT perpetuate online lies, I must. I did some online research and found out that the British tabloid "The Daily Mail" had reported them dissing children cancer patients back in the mid 1980's. It was THAT allegation that I considered when deciding I could no longer stand them. Unfortunately, I didn't find out until last night when I did my research that "The Daily Mail" later printed a retraction to that claim so for THAT reason alone (and not because of anything the group themelves said), I must admit that the dis I had believed to be accurate has proven to be wrong (at least as to what they've been known to say as per public record). Also, I understand that one of the group CURRENTLY is fighting cancer so being that I'm not a vindictive person but someone who doesn't think anyone deserves cancer, I will even say I feel sorry for what that band member and his family are having to go through. OK, I'm STILL not a fan of the group per se (due to their performing style,etc.) but I don't want to dump on them for something there's no public record for them having done. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 27, 2009, 1:48 pm

Keeping Up Appearances - TV Shows
"The bouquet residence, the lady of the house speaking!!!" Poor Richard's stuck doing everything she wants, and her poor neighbors Emmett and Elizabeth are too scared to say no to her invitations to tea. This show's hilarious, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks so! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 27, 2009, 1:38 pm

Fantasia - Movie Series
I MEANT to say "The Monkees" debuted a quarter century LATER than "Fantasia". Sorry about that! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 27, 2009, 1:36 pm

Fawlty Towers - TV Shows
Call me a nitpicker but I have to react to the comment #2... Connie Booth wasn't Cleese's TV wife in Fawlty Towers, she was his employee, his TV wife was Prunella Scales :-) -- Submitted By: (Tatiana) on August 27, 2009, 10:34 am

Fantasia - Movie Series
Wise words, PeliRojo, but BrewMaster and I are not the same person. Nonetheless, Fantasia still rocks. "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is a classic, and "Night on Bald Mountain" should keep scaring the pants off of kids for generations to come. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 27, 2009, 6:10 am

Man vs. Wild - TV Shows
How believable do I consider Bear's on-camera struggles for survival? About as believable as Bear being his given name! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 26, 2009, 4:10 pm

Coronation Street - TV Shows
I saw it a time or so out of curiosity when I'd cross the pond and ,while I can't say I understand why it's lasted almost a half-century; I think it's interesting that the soap is soapy enough with working class characters with no attempts to glamorize their wardrobes,residences or take the settings to exotic locales. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 26, 2009, 4:07 pm

Royal Family, The - TV Shows
Irony of bitter ironies was that at first the cast and crew actually thought Mr. Foxx was doing his Sanford impression when he was actually having his fatal heart attack. Then they later tried to salvage the mess by bringing in 227's Jackee in as, first Victoria's (Della Reese's) much younger sister- then ,after they decided it was too cumbersome to have to have the characters explain the relationship, they made Jackee's character Victoria's prodigal DAUGHTER (previously the daughter who had moved back into her parents' house after her divorce with her children that had triggered the original premise,had been Al and Victoria's only child). They needn't have bothered because the TV audience decided the whole thing was too cumbersome to bother with after Mr. Foxx's death. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 26, 2009, 3:56 pm

Fantasia - Movie Series
Shh! Careful, Mythagator! MTV et. al would quickly yowl that they were invented by 'The Monkees' a quarter century earlier. Still, if one wants to take rock music out of the equation as a requirement re music videos, one could go back even further to c.1931 with the musicals of Busby Berkeley from 1931 who eagerly turned dancers' legs,etc. into cogs of many a musical kaleidescope way back then! Check them out and see you think if Disney might have actually drawn some inspiration from them! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 26, 2009, 3:50 pm

Keeping Up Appearances - TV Shows
Thanks, Dolfan! True about Hyacinth being a neighbor nobody would want to have closer than Antarctica - and it also goes without saying that Richard likely would prefer to be on a different PLANET from his overwhelming spouse! Still, they all were funny to watch! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 26, 2009, 3:41 pm

Dennis the Menace (1959 sitcom) - TV Shows
Funny thing is that it wasn't the title character who was Mr. Wilson's worst nemesis,it was the nosy spinster neighbor Miss Cathcart (played by the marvellous Mary Wickes)- and her character never once appeared in the strip! One could even say that Miss Cathcart would be what Margaret would grow up to be (and,yes, Margaret could drive even Dennis to become a Mr. Wilson)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 26, 2009, 3:39 pm
