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.

Bill O'Reilly - Celebrities
C'mon guys. Bill O'Reilly is a great man, and a great conservative. He's got a lot of guts. I don't know how to describe him, he's like Rush Limbaugh. Who cares about that crummy Cabinet in the White House headed by Obama bin Laden (my nickname for Barack Obama). -- Submitted By: (Marcus) on May 5, 2009, 5:16 pm

California Dreams - TV Shows
Contrary to what a previous poster stated, this was not "Saved by the Bell." This was one of several pretty good Saturday morning non cartoon TV shows aimed at pre teens and teens. Saved By The Bell was probably the best but I really liked this one which took place in a laid back California atmosphere and had some good music as well as positive messages. It did bone the fish however when everyone started leaving the group and started getting replaced by other kids. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on May 5, 2009, 5:09 pm

Aladdin - TV Shows
What threw me off in Aladdin was that Jafar was never in any of the episodes. Disney killed Jafar in the suck-ass movie "The Return of Jafar", a huge mistake. He was by far the coolest Aladdin villain. I ought to also add a reason somewhere of Disney making Iago the Parrot a good guy. Iago was much cooler when he was a villain, and made the perfect pair with Jafar. End of story. -- Submitted By: (Marcus) on May 5, 2009, 4:47 pm

Academy Awards, The - Random Topics
Several events have contributed to the demise of the Academy Awards. It seems that for quite a few years, the criteria for winning meant that the movie had to be more than three hours long, foreign, or obscure. The movie also should have been very slow, like "Titanic" and "Braveheart." It also is incredibly annoying how after the Academy Awards certain movies' titles become a catchphrase like titanic and crouching tiger, hidden dragon. Not only do I now watch the Academy Awards themselves, but I am nervous to rent a movie that is an Academy Award winner. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 4, 2009, 5:27 pm

Milli Vanilli - Music Groups
You are so right. All these pop stars nowadays? And here we are, panning Milli Vanilli. I don't care for pop anyways. And as for the Grammys, I think all awards shows are rigged one way or another. The Simpsons episode, "The Seemingly Never-Ending Story", won an Emmy. Just about every other episode from season 17 was way better than that one, yet it won an Emmy? All these other shows it was up against, yet THAT won the Emmy? If the awards ceremony WASN'T rigged, then THAT would surprise me. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 4, 2009, 12:37 pm

Milli Vanilli - Music Groups
I think what Milli vanilli did was to expose the Grammys for being such a bunch of crap. Now I'm no music expert, but how can people that are the cream of the music elite not be able to pick up on these guys lip-synching? I've held the grammys in a low opinion for a long time, so I want to THANK milli vanilli for exposing them as the bigger REAL frauds- much more so than Rob and Fab. And like I said before, I was always amused at the idiots that bought this music in the first place destroying the albums they liked to listen to- did the music change? For example, if you found out Led Zeppelin was 4 trained animals playing usic, and not Page, Bonzo, Plant and Jones- couldnt you still enjoy the music? Not if you were a early 90's pop music fan- they needed that image to listen to the music, it's very shallow. And why didnt the fans flock to the people that sang ethe music? THEY DIDNT CARE, it was all about image, and who wanted to follow two overweight middle aged people? So thanks again to Milli Vanilli for exposing that whole fan base as the superficial frauds that they are. Also one more point on the MV attacks, look at all of the fraud artists of today- Jessica SImpson, Ashlee Simpson, Britney... etc. Do any of them even really sing? Can they do a live show? They caught Ashlee lipsynching, she gets a pass? Wha?! The more I think back on Rob and Fab, hats off for pulling one off- NEVER BONED!!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 4, 2009, 12:08 pm

Milli Vanilli - Music Groups
The thing is, though lip syncing is not a horrible crime as many people make it out to be, they won a Grammy through the use of deception. Many people consider lying and deception to be a more serious crime. Take Clinton's cheating: he wasn't impeached for sleeping with Monica Lewinsky, he was impeached for LYING about sleeping with Monica Lewinsky. I don't know why, but it's the way things are. Back to Milli Vanilli, it's a shame Pilatus killed himself. But I agree it's unfair that other people who did much more horrible things are still admired, while Milli Vanilli are condemned just for lip syncing. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 4, 2009, 11:51 am

Milli Vanilli - Music Groups
This is an interesting case of Fish Boning, or in this thesis, a NEVER BONED explanation. Hear me out- Obviously this is two guys that lip-synced and it was fashionable, and funny to goof on them, thus an obvious FISH BONE. However, in retrospect, I feel very bad that these two people were harassed into one of them dying from drugs, and becoming public pariahs for lip synching, and when you think of the bad people in the world, what did these two really do? Pretended to sing? But they did SO much more for us #1- they exposed the Grammys for being bush league, and for that alone we can thank them #2- They exposed MTV, and the idiotic fans of things like top 40 music and even things that didnt exist yet like ASHLEE SIMPSON and AMERICAN IDOL for being that superficial- you now hate the music and will destroy CD's because they pretty face isnt singing it? Why not still enjoy it if you always enjoyed it? Why not follow the real singers if appearance didnt matter to your vapid minds? Oh wait they were older, out of shape people... Lame. And #3-These guys provided a TON of humor to all us, and were the butt of alot of jokes, so lets give them credit for the laughs, it was much better than the music they didnt sing. So lets give them a retro, or even post-humous NEVER BONED for their service in exposing the idiocy of pop music and it's mindless fans. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 4, 2009, 7:36 am

Never boned. A good show that might have been hurt by tying the title to the slasher movie series.

Alot of Ren and Stimpy was bad, but the first season when John K actually was on the show before Nick drove him off and destroyed it was just pure cartoon Genius, it was a one of kind old time hand drawn cartoon that was original and funny, but in the long run, that was only 25% of Ren and Stimpy, so most of it was bad, but don't throw the baby out with the fish bone water. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 3, 2009, 7:53 pm

They came close to boning when they got married in the final season. That can kill a series but Barbara Eden really held the show together. Tony Nelson has to the the dumbest guy ever though. He had a Genie who could give him anything, and I mean anything in the world but he kept telling her not to help him and he always wanted to be an astronaut. All he had to do was wait for the lottery to get to a huge jackpot, buy one ticket, and tell Jeannie to make it the winner. That would allow him to be a multi millionaire without having Dr. Bellows trying to bust him. He could then afford his own fleet of aircraft and probably fly to the moon himself if he wanted. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on May 3, 2009, 7:52 pm

Unfortunately a show can bone the fish on it's last episode and this one did. They should have just stuck with the forumla and had a giant 2 hour multi-story plot like their episodes had. It could have involved larger subjects like traveling or marriages or winning a lottery or whatever, but everyone getting sent to prison was a little too far out. These guys are all still young and don't have a whole lot going on.

Ted McGinley - Celebrities
I know he actually had his own place of honor over at JTS, but this site isn't JTS is it so Ted gets new life here. Saying Ted brings bad luck to any series he joins is like saying the Justice of the Peace causes people to die when he shows up at the scene of an accident. He isn't called until there is an accident and the paramedics have determined the person is no longer living. He has the thankless task up showing up and signing the document to make it official. Ted was first called up to help Happy Days after everyone had left and Fonzie was basically the star. Ted was called again when the Love Boat was running out of ideas and needed a photographer for whatever reason. His phone rang again when Steve left Married With Children and Marcy needed a new love interest. In each case Ted was called up when a series was in trouble. He isn't the Sitcom Grim Reaper, He's the Sitcom Doctor. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on May 3, 2009, 7:43 pm

In regards to the comment below me: you actually can't give a buyer bad feedback. It doesn't matter what a buyer does, a seller cannot give a buyer bad feedback. You can not pay me, threaten me, lie about stuff that you received, say that you didn't receive something, and if I don't have proof that I actually sent you something, as a seller, I can't do anything except in the non pay case, where I can ask ebay to pursue a payment for me. So far as the recourse you have as a buyer, generally when cases like this get investigated, the seller is expected to prove that they did indeed send the item, and if they can't, then it's assumed that the item was never sent. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on May 3, 2009, 6:41 pm

If someone gives a seller bad feedback (even if they deserve it), they can retaliate against the person who gave the negative feedback.

Star Wars - Movie Series
Episodes 1, 2, and 3 could have been good, but they were ruined by so many things: Jar Jar Binks, who ruins everything by being so annoying stupid, Anakin being "an emo bitch" as the reason accurately puts it, and overuse of CGI. The only things that weren't computer animated were the live action characters. Lucas is so addicted to CGI, he remade the classic trilogies to put computer animations in them. CGI is fine, it was great for creating the droids and General Grievous. It's when it's done to death or used to change old classic movies that I have a problem with it. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 3, 2009, 2:00 pm

Jurassic Park - Movie Series
The first movie was awesome. This was back when computer animation was groundbreaking, instead of being done to bloody death. The lifelike dinosaurs sent shivers down your spine as they prowled the park, roared, screeched, and attacked people. The Lost World was ok, but it doesn't hold a candle to the first movie. (The man being trodden on and stuck to the T-Rex's foot as he chases the people still haunts me to this day). The third one? How many times are these people going to reuse the plot where the cast accepts invitations to dinosaur-ridden areas only for disaster to strike? The only thing I give them credit for is using dinosaurs not seen in the first or second movies. Otherwise, once again, the third movie in a series proves to bone the fish. Provided the second movie fails to do so. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 3, 2009, 12:10 pm

If you watch Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith, you'll see the only things which were not CGI were the live action cast. He even remade the classics so he could add CGI to them (as in Jabba the Hut talking with Han Solo). Lucas, use CGI sparingly? Hah, hah. That's as believable as Gordon Ramsey saying he will be using no swear words on his next episode of Hell's Kitchen. Anyhow, this show boned/nuked with the Crystal Skull. Leave the trilogies alone.

But then again, I never bought that Fred really considered Grady his best friend instead of someone he felt he had no choice but to tolerate just like the Fonz did with Potsie! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 3, 2009, 11:13 am

Sanford and Son - TV Shows
Definitely boned when Redd Foxx left. When a show revolves so much around the star, it's difficult to understand the logic in keeping it going after the star leaves. Redd Foxx was the whole show. Lamont was important, but only as a comic foil, and as much as I liked Grady, he was no Fred. And does it make any sense that Sanford and Son is a show about Sanford's son and an old guy named Grady who was left in charge? I don't think so. Can't have Sanford and Son without Sanford. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on May 3, 2009, 6:38 am

Ron Howard - Celebrities
I have to say he's never boned. Howard might, at times, have made films I hated, but then he'd follow with something I enjoyed. He's still doing good work. Although not having a part for Clint in The DaVinci Code was inexcusable. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on May 2, 2009, 10:30 pm

AfterMASH - TV Shows
The supporting actors, who had no better prospects when MASH ended, got together and starred in their own show, playing the same characters in a completely different setting. Oh yeah, that's a great idea. Boned from the beginning. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on May 2, 2009, 10:28 pm

AC DC - Music Groups
Day what you will about Black Ice only being exclusive to Wal Mart, but it didn't hurt sales any. Black Ice was the second best selling AC/DC album (behind Back In Black), and was a smash hit world wide. AC/DC has always rocked, and always will rock! -- Submitted By: (BAM) on May 2, 2009, 9:56 pm

Albertsons - Random Topics
Between Albertsons, Winn-Dixie, and Publix, Albertsons always had the highest prices of all three of them in my area. But when it came to sales, they blew the competition out of the water. Why should the only time their prices be good be during sales, huh? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 2, 2009, 8:10 pm

Sesame Street - TV Shows
A chilhood classic, forever ruined by that little red monster Elmo. He's everywhere when it comes to Sesame Street: episodes, goods, you name it. It doesn't help that the last 15-30 minutes of the show are dedicated to Elmo's World. It's more like an advertisement for Elmo and toys of Elmo than actually teaching kids anything. The skits of the classic characters are so tightly squeezed into the schedule to make sure we get as much time of Elmo's World as possible. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 2, 2009, 8:00 pm

Seinfeld - TV Shows
I'll say this again: A show CANNOT "jump", er, "bone" on its final episode. If a show bones it starts going downhill. If there's no more shows left, it can't possibly go downhill. That being said, the finale was atrocious. -- Submitted By: (Tryclyde) on May 2, 2009, 2:16 pm

Office, The - TV Shows
The hiring back of Michael, Pam, and Ryan was ridiculous. All Dunder Mifflin had to do was wait another month and the Michael Scott Paper Company would have been out of business. No company on earth would have taken any of them back under the circumstances. Really stupid. -- Submitted By: (Tryclyde) on May 2, 2009, 2:07 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
The Cosby Show jumped the shark when they brought Cousin Pam in town. She was the most irritating character I've met as well as Charmaine, Lance and Slide. It really brought the show down when these characters appears. Olivia really kept the show interesting and more family oriented with her cuteness up until Pam came to town. Pam really changed the show since it was no longer the innocent family oriented sitcom.

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
That annoying friend you're thinking of was Charmaine...and actually, although I thought Pam are her dopey friends were complete bores, I kinda liked Charmaine. She was pretty funny. Not in a Cosby kind of funny I suppose, but she still made me laugh, just about the only thing I laughed at during the entire 8th season.

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
I'm always stunned at the nasty references to Olivia by posters(even when discussing other shows, like some lame running joke) Talk about following trends with the "no talent and annoying" claims. I think people are right in declaring she was brought in to repair Rudy's vacating the Cute Factor, but this character was a self-possessed and pragmatic little person in her own right. I found that very appealing from the startand yes, I DID like Rudy very much) she was played with much aplomb by a particulary young actress: I THINK she was only 3 or 4. The show WAS just heading towards Suckville by then, but gave me seasons of enjoyment prior to that.

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
I have to say The Cosby Show suffered Cousin Oliver Syndrome not once but TWICE! Olivia is the addition that I could understand; she was Denise's step-daughter. OK. She didn't annoy me as much as C.O.S. sufferer #2: Cousin Pam. Pam struck me as a character that was thought of on a coffee break by somebody who didn't know a thing about television. The final season was DOMINATED by storylines about Pam and her friends Charmaine and Lance. It confused a lot of the die-hard fans of the show. To rectify the error of Pam, create a spinoff of the show using the storylines of the final season that nobody else was in and have the family make guest appearances in selected shows. I know the show ended in 1992 and it is 2007 now but that is how i would prevent another Cousin Pam-like occurance on any other show.

Lost - TV Shows
After having read all the "supposed" reasons for LOST to JTS, it seems like people are missing the point. LOST is a story. A fantasy, it's not real. Open your imagination and let the story unfold. I LOVE this show, mostly because of all the crazy things happening. It have been developed during the whole show that this island is not normal. Which could mean anything. People like Star Wars for the same reason, it's not real. So for the people complaining about the lack of realism in LOST are lost themselves. This is a great show, with great character development and interaction, and excellent story telling.

Lost - TV Shows
Too many annoying characters getting too much air time. And also the story just got more and more unbelievable and cliched. It's truly tragic that a show with such great potential really went downhill so much that they aren't considered for the Emmy anymore after the first season. Second season was a real disaster. The story moves along at a snails pace while at the same time they introduce new mysteries instead of answering old ones in every episode. The final episode will be a real bummer because it will all be a dream or involve drugs or something like that.

Lost jumped within the first twenty minutes of the show, when some "monster" ate the pilot. This show should've been named "Gilligan meets the Creature from the Black Lagoon." LAME.

Lost - TV Shows
How can you say the show's jumped the shark with all the crazy stuff that's been going on? I don't think you can conclusively say it's jumped yet. Once they reveal that they're actually in a time warp, even though the writers and producers have adamantly denied this, THEN you can say the show's jumped the shark. I like watching the show, but I think they're so obsessed with making the plot so complicated that I'm wondering if they're writing themselves into a corner.

Alias - TV Shows
Alias was like, the best action/spy action show ever. Everything was so cool : music, disguises, revelations, everything was just perfect. And the first 2 seasons were ! When finally, the 3rd season came, it was really a disappointment. Irina no longer there, Will missing, Francie killed. Everything that contributed to make Sydney close to us, as a true human being, with her friends, her home, her lies... all of that disappeared to just become a action-like show. The fourth season with its episodic structure and its "terrorist of the week" was also very weak. The final season was really fun and for a moment, I felt like one of my favorite show was back again... but somehow, something was lost forever in the process. -- Submitted By: (Kristian) on May 2, 2009, 10:12 am

Earth - Final Conflict - TV Shows
The first season was good. More than good, exceptional. It had such an amazing potential. The second season, with Boone's death, was just lame, as for the third, it was SO disappointing. The fourth one brought good continuity and revelations, but I felt like I was watching a totally different show. The Taelons became more and more "humans" in their reactions, thus losing what made them so particular. The final one is just horrible. All those cast changes and change of direction and focus through the course of Earth Final Conflict destroyed the series. -- Submitted By: (Kristian) on May 2, 2009, 10:05 am

I look for an education bubble bursting just like the housing market- too many colleges with too many people attending that shouldnt be at college- also, the price has gotten too high, the debt so many recent grads have for degrees that arent marketable is a disaster waiting to happen in our country's financial health, just like the housing boom/bust. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 2, 2009, 7:42 am

You can still see some of the old content and comments from the wayback machine website- i would say that someone should starat taking their old show comments and move them over to this site from "Wayback", and then see if TV guide comes after you for "freeing" your old comments or reasons to be seen again, however the wayback archives are limited to what you can see/read, and not every show is accessible. But I'm sure there is a Bone or two willing to try to find out? -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 2, 2009, 7:07 am
