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.

Brady Bunch Hour, The - TV Shows
It's tough to think of more pathetic moments on TV than when the 'kids' said they wanted to sing songs of 'our generation'- and they wound up singing a disco version of the 1920's hit 'Baby Face' followed by them singing(yes, singing- to a degree) 'The Hustle'! The whole concept boned Day One and it's telling that there wasn't ever the slightest reference in all the later reunion shows/movies about this time of them having sold their home to do a variety show and having a Fake (and whinier) Jan)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 28, 2009, 9:44 am

Star Trek - Movie Series
I think that the recent movie killed Star Trek. It was primarily space opera/SFX eye candy, with a few characters vaguely reminiscent of Trek classic stirred in. If it hadn't been called "Star Trek", I wouldn't have gotten bent out of shape. I feel that there's a certain intellectual dishonesty in putting a name associated with an existing "Franchise", and then doing something with little connection with the original. It's like trying to have your cake and eat it too - if you want to do something almost totally new, that's fine: Let it sink or swim on its own merits. Conversely, if you associate it with an existing "Franchise", then there are certain expectations from the pre-existing fan community that you're trying to attract. In the case of the newest Trek movie, I think they went too far. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 28, 2009, 8:43 am

Saturday Morning Cartoons - Random Topics
To be fair, there are two very good reasons why you don't have Saturday morning kids programing like before: 1) Saturday morning kids programming was a legacy of the days when there were only 3 networks. Nowadays, there are hundreds of channels, and plenty of places to get kids programming 24/7. 2) With videotape and DVDs, you can supply your own programming of choice anytime you like. I remember the classic days of Saturday morning cartoons, but I think that given the choice, I'd take today's alternative. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 28, 2009, 7:34 am

House - TV Shows
It's like 'Springtime For Hitler' from Mel Brooks' comedy 'The Producers,' i.e., a show deliberately created to be so bad it was bound to fail but which, perversely, turned out to be a hit. Leaden cinematography to match House's immobile, humorless face; dialog divorced from character, action divorced from reality; a hospital without nurses; junk medicine; seems to have been written by teenagers. The women are lovely, particularly the delicious Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), but try to imagine House making love to her, mugging for the camera through it all.

Britney and Kevin: Chaotic - TV Shows
If possible, I would have said that this jumped before day one, at the moment that someone at UPN thought that broadcasting this homemade mess was a good idea. The one possible virtue to this series was revealing just how clueless and self-absorbed some celebrities can be: perhaps excerpts from this will be used someday as part of a biography program titled "The Decline and Fall of Britney Spears". The content of the program does raise the question of just what Britney was thinking when she married K Fed, although it also tends to show that thinking isn't exactly Britney's strong point. I remain astounded that this ever got on the air, and I am doubly astounded that it was released on DVD. (I'd love to know what kind of people actually bought copies). This is another contender for the "Bottom of the Barrel" award for the most awful reality TV series of all time. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 28, 2009, 5:40 am

Doctor Who - TV Shows
The history of Doctor Who is very complicated, with 10 actors having played the lead part (to date), and multiple changes in format from 1963 to 2009. In essence, in considering the entire run of the show, you're really looking at several different programs, and it could be argued that the program has boned (and deboned back) on multiple occasions. Personally, in most respects I consider the 1963 to 1989 incarnation to be a separate program from the post 2004 version. In the 'classic program', I consider the peak to have been the first three Tom Baker seasons (when Phillip Hinchcliffe was producer), and the BTF moment to be when Peter Davison was replaced by Colin Baker. It wasn't just the change of lead actor: A lot of other things changed at the same time, and not for the better. Although Doctor Who ran for four seasons beyond this change, its death warrant had already been signed. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 28, 2009, 5:36 am

Sonic the Hedgehog - Random Topics
I was never a Sonic fan. The whole Blast Processing thing just turned me off of. I however know people that are Sonic fans and though them have learned a fair bit and wish that I hadn't. One thing that I'm a little unclear on is that I was under the impression that Tails was always a super genius right from his debut. When considering the plots and if making them too serious ruins it, I find myself asking the question of why we play videogames. In the end, I think it gets down to one main reason. In video games, we play the role of a character in a story involving solving a problem (small or serious) rather then just reading about said character. It feels as though *we* can do something about the problem and see results. When we're playing a 3 foot tall cartoon hedgehog that runs around wearing nothing but sneakers and gloves, I tend to agree that having just enough story (even if it makes little sense) to give us a reason for wanting to play the role of the character should be enough. I think mascot characters should be for fun. Adding a lot of angst and seriousness to the character in my opinion takes away from the point of the character. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on July 27, 2009, 7:53 pm

C.O.P.S. (Cartoon) - TV Shows
A fun show and a part of my childhood that still puts a smile on my face when I think about it or see clips of it. That doesn't mean the show didn't have issues. Believe me, the show that plenty of issues. Though I think we do have to remember that it was the 80s and it was a kid's cartoon. So, I think we need to look at it from the point of view of a kid that might not question a lot of the stuff that might not make sense. It did seem strange how often we'd see the criminals in jail or police custody at the end of an episode only for them to be free by the next episode. I will also admit that the behaviour of the some of the bad guys was rather -- well, to put mildly, they behaved like kids in the bodies of adults. However, that was part of the charm of the show. Episodes like the ones where The Big Bosses Mother visits were hilarious. Sure, I might roll my eyes at it when looking back at it as an adult. But as a kid, it entertained me. Perhaps that is the key to enjoying shows (or any form of entertainment) like this. Yes, you need to suspend your disbelief to sometimes extreme levels. But if you can, the show is a lot of fun. Sure, the show was far too silly at times. But for a kid that was a bit of a dreamer and never worried about something being unrealistic, the show was a lot of fun. I think that's what matters. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on July 27, 2009, 3:48 pm

Britney Spears - Celebrities
I have to admit that Britney's current celebrity is a bit of a mystery to me. Her fame when she was 18-ish is understandable: She was jail bait and marketed as such. But she doesn't look like that anymore, and in her recent live performances, she doesn't sing (live), doesn't dance much, or do much of anything besides just being there in an entertainment spectacular that would probably work just as well if she wasn't there at all. Sometimes, she barely seems to know where she is. And yet she had no problem selling most of the tickets to her current tour. Why? -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 27, 2009, 3:43 pm

Guinness World Records - Random Topics
The Guinness Book of World Records used to be an almost scholarly tome. It used to assume a fair amount of literacy on the part of its readers: I was inspired to teach myself exponential notation so that I could understand some of the entries in the science and technical area. (Guinness also used to publish top-quality record books/references on specific subjects like aviation, animals, astronomy, etc.). No longer: Since Norris McWhirter was ousted as a consultant in 995, the book has turned to crap. I read somewhere recently that the main target audience of the Guinness book of Records is teenage boys, and that explains a lot. Sometimes, it looks like they decided which celebrities they wanted to feature in the book, and then tailored the "records" to fit. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 27, 2009, 11:44 am

Calvin and Hobbes - Random Topics
While I miss getting fresh doses of first run Calvin and Hobbes, I'm still glad that Bill Watterson quit at peak form. I'm equally glad that he fought and won the battle to minimize the "merchandising" of his characters. The result is that when I think of Calvin and Hobbes, I think of ten years of stellar cartooning that still hold up well more than twenty years later. I think that beats the perception of those ten years being tainted by years of decline, or seeing his unique characters being used to peddle bedsheets or sugared cereal. Watterson likely turned down multiple millions by not taking the more conventional route with his creations, and I salute him for it. I have the complete works in book form, and they're already working their magic on the next generation (who resembles Calvin in a number of ways...!) -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 27, 2009, 6:57 am

Bugs Bunny Show - TV Shows
The classic Bugs Bunny cartoons still rock and always will. The show on TV, however, boned when they started editing out everything that was considered overly violent or politically incorrect - for example, the "singing frog guy" not getting an audience until he put out a sign announcing "FREE BEER!" In the "edited for PC" version, "Free Admission" draws a crowd. When you're old enough to remember the cartoons in their full intact glory, the cuts are REALLY annoying! I would buy DVD collections of the cartoons if there was a guarantee that they were uncut, and therefore untouched by the bluenosed hyper-PC fish-boners at WB. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on July 27, 2009, 6:27 am

I once commented on the lack of chemistry between Durance and Welling but I it's gradually been building on one side Durance's. I feel like Lana left so long ago and he's STILL not over it. What's worse they make Lois secretly fawn for him and him kind of be ambivalent about. Every other series he's been head of heel in love first and she's been reluctant. I don't like it.

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero (1985) - TV Shows
While it was very unrealistic that no one ever died (and I seem to remember another cliche being Cobra shooting down the Joes planes and the pilots *always* were able to eject and parachute to safety) it was part of the charm of the show. It's ironic however that people say that it being a kid's show should keep them being having characters dying. I admit that I tend to feel the same way. However, in reality, it's the adults that character deaths and violence tend to bother more. Though having *someone* die even as a special episode could have been interesting, it could also have opened a Pandora's box when all of the sudden characters were dying all of the time like Redshirts. Seriously though, even though the show was basically a commercial for the toys, it was still a fun show and one I enjoyed as a kid. It may seem silly now, but I think a lot of kids enjoyed it back then and I think that's what matters. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on July 26, 2009, 10:33 pm

Spider-Man: The Animated Series (1994-1998) - TV Shows
A enjoyable cartoon. Peter's smart alec commentary was funny. They may have used some elements common to 90s cartoons like making sure to show us that any innocent bystanders that got hurt were always okay in the end. Although the alternative while more realistic tends to take away some of the romance of super heroes. However, I think they found a good balance between drama, comedy and cool that made for an overall enjoyable show. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on July 26, 2009, 4:31 pm

College - Random Topics
I'm not American and I admit that I don't fully know how it works in the States. However, from what I hear it seems that going to College (especially going *away* to College) is now to the point of being a coming of age for young Americans. It seems to be more the idea of the College experience then anything. Therein lies the problem. College is expensive. As people have already said, people are getting degrees that require a lot of work and might sound cool on paper. But, when it comes to getting a job the degree just isn't marketable. High School is almost sounding like it's become a four year commercial or preparation for College. Education is a wonderful thing. However, College is not for everyone. I think people need to stop seeing College as required where you go because 'you have to' and see it as a privilege. That's not to say I think people should be looking for excuses not to go to Colleges. More that I think people should be going to College for the right reasons. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on July 25, 2009, 2:04 pm

Mystery Science Theater 3000 - TV Shows
Let me start by saying this was probably one of the funniest TV shows Ive ever seen. The riffing and commentary made me laugh out loud, not many shows have done that to me. Anyway, it tried to Bone when Joel left, it wasn't the same, but Mike Nelson was pretty hilarious himself. Joel and Mike both had their moments in my book, but the show Boned for good when Dr. Forrester left, and was replaced by his Mother, and Tv's Frank was replaced by the Ape men and the alien.

Never boned then, if it was still going today, it never would. Fred Rogers never talked down to kids, treated kids like anyone else, and took his time.

Pokemon - TV Shows
God, the Anime of this series stunk. The first and second seasons were okay (But they got butchered here in the U.S. by that damn 4Kids (one of the worst dubbing companies in existence), and, of course, I believe this show put them on the map)The plots weren't bad, but I couldn't stand Ash. (The only badges he won fair where, what, The Volcano, Thunder, and Soul Badges?) Then he just turns around and gets rid of all his good Pokemon (Think about it, by now he woulda had a team consisting of Primeape, Haunter(probably a Gengar), Lapras, Pidegot, Butterfree, and Larvitar/Pupitar(probably a Tyranitar) but no, he got rid of em all for that ****** rat. And TR was annoying as hell... Hey, Ash, just have 'em locked up. Then with the 'Johto Journeys' saga it got predictable and boring, with Ash and co. getting more grating, I just stopped watching. Gary was pretty good though, (Yeah, he was complete ***, but he had a nice team, knew what he was doing, and was laid back) just tell him to get rid of those annoying cheerleaders. -- Submitted By: (Johnny_T._Bird) on July 25, 2009, 9:42 am

Pokemon - Random Topics
With Red, Blue and Yellow the game was pretty good. Yes, the Sound F/X and Graphics were bad, but it was still a fun game. The designs of the Pokemon were pretty good, (For every Slowpoke ya had a Ninetails, so it was balanced out), the plot was original, and the dialogue was good. With Gold/Silver/Crystal, there weren't too many Pokemon. And the addition of Johto balanced out the newer Pokemon (So you didn't have 900 Pokemon in just 1 region). Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald had better graphics, and it was basically the same, But my complaint was that there were too many Pokemon by now, and I felt the Legendary Pokemon had worn out their welcome. (There were like 20 by now), and... They had about 400 Pokemon confined to just one region. Fire Red and Leaf Green were pretty good though, you know, for the nostalgia. Diamond/Pearl/Platinum I felt the same, (Now there's 500 of them) but the games were still fun, and they had improved even more (The 3-D animations in D/P/PT) Heartgold and Soulsilver look good (The upcoming G/S remakes). Oh well, Pokemon is a business, I guess. Not to mention one of Nintendo's biggest games, it would be a bad move it end it now (Not that they should). -- Submitted By: (Johnny_T._Bird) on July 25, 2009, 9:12 am

Indiana Jones - Movie Series
Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade were all great movies.

Batman: The Animated Series - TV Shows
Batman TAS was a classic right from day one. They found a way to make use of dark and gritty themes but without overdoing it and making the show depressing. I like how they weren't afraid to have touching scenes (scenes in a couple of episodes come to mind) but again, were able to do in such a way that felt natural and reminded us that despite being Batman, Batman was a still human being. I also like how they were able to use comical scenes but did it in a mature way that kept the show from getting too moody but without turning it into farce and/or making light of serious events. This show is an example of a mature show. Yes, it had violence (I mean, it's Batman, it's going to have violence) and there were times that the censors might have had them tone things down but I think this is a show that you can watch as a kid or teen and come back to as an adult and still enjoy it. It was mature in that it was serious but not so serious as to be dark and depressing enough that you feel like crap after watching every episode. When the character designs changed, it just didn't feel the same. The plots were still all right but something about the feel of it changed. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on July 25, 2009, 1:34 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
I think Family Guy has its shortcomings for sure. I think that they push the envelope constantly in terms of taste and sensibility but I see no difference between how they approach it and how South Park approaches it. And I think both shows are brilliant and funny. I also think that Family Guy has remained more or less the same type of show over the years, only exaggerated itself, much like South Park and much like The Simpsons. I find similarities between the three, sure, but I don't see the reasons behind people liking one over the other or accusing one of being a ripoff of another. If you really think about it, everything ripped off the Simpsons simply because they did it first but Simpsons had inspirations from elsewhere before it too. Family Guy has a lot of brilliance to it. I watch Simpsons for its narrative and sight gag, I watch South Park for its satire and parody, and I watch Family Guy for its cutaways and its one-liners. They are brilliant. They don't need a solid plot or consistent characters for it to be funny. It's still funny. Lastly, the musical numbers are top notch and they're the only animated show who can pull them off. I think Family Guy just has its own place separate from the others. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on July 24, 2009, 4:05 pm

Futurama - TV Shows
Futurama is a superior comedy with a strong, colorful cast of characters that is a lot more tightly focused than the huge Simpsons cast. I think its irreverent humor carves out the niche that Family Guy should have had but then started trying to be something else. I think Futurama's comedy is smart and witty without ever being too high-brow or inaccessible. It was a travesty when it was cancelled and Bender's Big Score showed everyone how good their narratives could be when given the chance. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on July 24, 2009, 4:00 pm

Prisoner, The - TV Shows
My vote is for the last episode, "Fall Out". Up to that point, the series had its ups and downs, and the episodes that were intended to be part of the abortive "second season" of the program are generally not as good as those from the first. However, the program was consistently entertaining, interesting, thought provoking, and unquestionably unique. The problem of setting up any "mythology" in a show, as Chris Carter found out with the "X Files", is that sooner or later you have to answer the questions that you've raised. That's why the last episode loses it: it answers nothing about the previous 16 episodes, but rather asks a new set of questions, and then doesn't answer them either! It would appear that the series had been cancelled with 16 episodes either completed or in production (26 episodes were originally planned), and a final 17th episode was cobbled together in a great rush to try and give some resolution to the series. Originally, series creator Patrick MacGoohan said that all the answers were in the final episode. However, in a later interview, MacGoohan stated (regarding "Fall Out"): "If anybody admits to understanding it, then please pass the understanding on to me." Mind you, the fact that there wasn't a coherent ending (plus the presence of lots of symbolism to encourage endless debate on what it all really means) is probably the main reason for the cult attraction of the series. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 24, 2009, 11:58 am

Olympics, The - TV Shows
My opinion is that Olympics boned the fish from the first time they were televised: The Nazi Olympics from Berlin in 1936. (It's surprising just how many things that people think have been with the Modern Olympics from the beginning actually were creations of Hitler, Speer et. al. for the 1936 games, but that's another matter). In terms of nationalistic bias, etc., not much has changed in the coverage of the games since. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 24, 2009, 11:40 am

Sorry, but I thought the characters (and situations) were dullsville- even though I desperately wanted something besides "Star Trek" reruns to help quench my tv sci-fi thirst (and "The Starlost" was even more boring). What's more as far back as I can remember, I knew that blasting something on the Dark Side of the Moon strongly enough to send it out of orbit would hurl the Moon TOWARDS Earth not away from it (not to mention everything/everyone not attached to it would have flown off into space). And they were pitching it to us Boomers,etc. who'd literally cut our teeth watching Apollo missions just a few years earlier?!

Davey and Goliath - TV Shows
Although I considered it VERY preachy even when first seeing it as a toddler, I still had fun with it because Goliath always would show up Davey- despite Davey calling the dog 'Dopey'! Not surprisingly, Art Clokey considered this series a means to pay his bills so he could finance his REAL(and more fun) favorite "Gumby". Still, this series wasn't without its benefits. Like the episode in which Davey lost his father's skis due to carelessness and his father scolded and punished him for it- but made it clear that just because he was angry at Davey for his action didn't mean that he'd stopped loving him! Yes, even if one is NOT a Christian (and isn't ready to apply the above rationale to God Himself re boneheaded humans); it's still something worth considering re familial etc, dynamics. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 24, 2009, 11:25 am

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
MASH boned the fish during its fifth season. My wife and I bought each season of the series on DVD as it came out, but the fifth season was the last we bought. However, I don't feel that the crash is due to the departure of Frank Burns. Larry Linville left because he felt that he had done everything that he could with the character, and I suspect he was probably right. The whole Margaret & Frank thing was getting a little tired by the beginning of the fifth season of the show, and I guess the producers wanted to try something new for her character. Given that Frank was a rather one dimensional character, that didn't leave much for him to do, and I think that his departure (particularly the way that it was handled in the sixth season premiere) was well timed and perfectly executed. I think the real reason that MASH boned at about this point was the increasing ascendancy of Alan Alda behind the camera, following the departure of Larry Gelbart and Gene Reynolds. This would have happened regardless of whether Frank Burns stayed or left, although it's hard to imagine what would have happened to his character in the 'kinder, gentler MASH' of the late seventies and early eighties had he stayed. Would Frank have ultimately ended up as a good guy? The mind boggle... -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 24, 2009, 9:56 am

Space: 1999 - TV Shows
Space 1999 is a problematic series to categorize in terms of boning the fish. The technical stuff on the series was extremely good: the sets were up to contemporary movie standards, never mind television, and the SFX and model work was nearly as good (before Star Wars changed the basis for comparison). There were some well written scripts in the first season: reading some of the scripts, you get the impression that the finished product should be incredible. In some cases it was: The standout episode to me is "Death's Other Dominion", which works really well, owing to an excellent guest cast. I also recall "Dragon's Domain", the tentacled monster episode, one of only two things that ever really scared me on television. So, what's not to like? It seems to me that the problems are with the featured performers, specifically, the two leads. Considering that they were married at the time, Landau and Bain really don't seem to have much chemistry, and sometimes, Bain's acting is positively painful to watch. I really liked Barry Morse, Prentice Hancock, and Nick Tate, but they have a hard time working against the two principal actors. Nonetheless, as described above, there are a number of standout episodes -- Also great are "War Games" and "The Infernal Machine". In these two (and "Death's Other Dominion"), good writing and ideas really stand out. Perhaps with some changes to the cast, Space 1999 might have been superb, rather than merely good. I've avoided commenting on the second season. I've seen the first season episodes recently, and my comments reflect a different viewpoint than the second season episodes, which I only saw in first run. So it wouldn't be fair to make a comparison. -- Submitted By: () on July 24, 2009, 8:40 am

Turn-On - TV Shows
Turn On is one of at least five network TV shows to have the sad distinction of only running once. Other examples are You're in the Picture (CBS, Jan. 20, 1961), Co Ed Fever (CBS, Feb. 4, 1979), South of Sunset (CBS, Oct. 27, 1993), and Dot Comedy (ABC, Dec. 15, 2000). Perhaps Turn On deserves the crown of shortest run in network history over the other four: in some markets, the sole episode was pulled off the air in mid broadcast! What I don't understand is how something that could be so universally rejected by audiences (and staff at the stations) ever got to be broadcast in the first place. I assume that someone had to have seen it before broadcast: I wonder how the people who approved this felt after the fact. Maybe because it was from the producers of Laugh In (a big hit at the time), it didn't go through the usual scrutiny. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 24, 2009, 8:07 am

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
This was a good series, once they got past the first two seasons and managed to come up with the show's own unique identity, rather than just an updated version of the sixties original. In fact, I think the reason that the subsequent movies featuring the TNG crew didn't fare very well (relative to those featuring the original series crew) is because the movies weren't any improvement on some of the better two parters from the TV series. This is high praise indeed for the series. Seven years was probably just about enough: the show went out on a high note, before the characters wore out their welcome and the quality crashed. This was a classy move on the part of the people behind the show. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 24, 2009, 8:03 am

Davey and Goliath - TV Shows
This show is one of my memories of kids television before the 300 channel universe, in the days before there was 24 hour kids programming, DVDs, VCRs, or anything to watch other than what the network programming guys happened to send your way. As a kid in the early 70's, Saturday morning was pretty much all kids programming on all channels. This was a big deal for me: I guess there was kids programming before and after school on weekdays, but for various reasons, I wasn't usually able to see it. So for me, Saturday morning was a once weekly golden feast of kid friendly programming, combined with the free time to relax and enjoy it. Sunday morning, by comparison had the free time, but all the TV stations offered was a vast wasteland of 'religious' programming, with about as much entertainment value to a seven year old as watching paint dry. Davey and Goliath was the best of a bad lot: Still religious programming (albeit concealed as a kids cartoon), but at least watchable. Even at the age of seven, I could tell that the messages the program was trying to get across weren't exactly subtle, and my youthful sarcastic instincts were honed making fun of the characters and the rather heavy handed moral messages. I think better of what the program and its creators were trying to accomplish now, but at the time it just didn't have the entertainment value of more conventional kids programming. For example, D & G wouldn't have stood a chance if it had been run against Bugs Bunny, for instance. Davey and Goliath will always be a memory of a time when the entertainment world was a lot smaller, and of the things we watched because there was literally nothing else on. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 24, 2009, 7:41 am

Soap - TV Shows
I was too young to watch Soap in first run when it originally appeared (although I had certainly heard of it), and the closest that I got was watching the opening titles, which were pretty funny all by themselves. I got into this series years later, when purely by chance, I tuned into the first episode as it started a syndication run. (At the time, I didn't know it was the first episode). I wasn't used to television with continuing story lines, and by the end of that first half hour (and the shows amazing range of loopy, yet sympathetic characters), I was hooked. Personally, I think the first season and the beginning of the second of Soap is a great piece of television. In watching it, there's no doubt whatsoever that you're watching something from the seventies, and the way that Billy Crystal's character was handled is a bit hard to watch today. Despite this, it's still vastly entertaining, and always leaves you wanting more. The series gradually eroded as members of the original cast left: the most notable departures being Diane Canova (Corinne: I had the hots for her in a big way) and Robert Guillaume (Benson). The new characters brought in to replace them just weren't the same. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 24, 2009, 7:38 am
