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.

Starship Troopers - Movie Series
I agree with the reason that this had little to do with the books, but the reason about the antiquated war tactics is equally as valid. I'll add another: the logic doesn't really work out for a bunch of stuff. The stated logic regarding why only soldiers are allowed to vote doesn't really work in the book or the movie: it is said that this system is used because it ensures a balance of power, and "the maximum amount of power that you can wield is equal to the maximum amount of responsibility that you can accept for wielding it." This doesn't quite work, because I can presumably vote again and again and again, and affect neither society nor myself in the least (think everyone who voted for Ron Paul in the 2008 election), however if I die to pay for this, I am permanently affected by this irrevocably, even though my ability to vote had no effect. If they had just said something trite like "if you're brave enough to hold a gun and get shot at you're responsible enough to cast a ballot" I'd have brought it more. The thing about women being better pilots in High G environments is questionable as well: not because I have a problem with women being portrayed in such roles, but because at the level of the forces that we're dealing with, the slight advantage that women have over men in high g conditions would be moot, and you'd probably be better off using pilotless vehicles run by AI or broadcast signals from mother ships that remain in orbit. It's like saying "I'm going to fire a bullet at you at the speed of light, what would you rather have as armor, iron or steel?" Of course, some of these comments veer off into the book too, so I'm going to stop here. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 29, 2009, 4:10 pm

Captain N: The Game Master - TV Shows
A show that messes up video game characters this bad could only have been done on purpose. I know graphics in the games of the time weren't that advanced and often only a brief description was offered in the instruction manual, but even the most basic and obvious of character traits were changed for no good reason. How does Simon Belmont go from fearless vampire hunter to a whiny primadonna in World War I aviator garb? How do you turn Mega Man into a green midget with the voice of a chain smoker? Why was King Hippo blue, or even in this show for that matter? They could have picked a much better representative for Punch Out if they had to. Then there was Pit from Kid Icarus, with his 80s hairdo and faux-Latin manner of speaking. Considering this show as intended as little more than a half-hour commercial for Nintendo, you would think there would have been more effort put into it. -- Submitted By: (LoyalPigeon) on April 29, 2009, 2:25 pm

Cube - Movie Series
The instant a sequel was made, the entire series boned the fish. Film directors, and film students of all genres should have a copy of this film series in their library. It so perfectly illustrates a number of concepts that film makers don't get: 1) Everything doesn't need a sequel. 2) Some questions are better left unanswered for the audience. 3) More money != (does not equal) better movie. The first movie almost qualified as a parable: the Cube was a setting, but also a faceless, nameless, anonymous character in the way the Starship Enterprise is both setting and character in its franchise. No explanation was given as to how it came to be, beyond hints that one of the prisoners was responsible for designing a part of it. This ambiguity of purpose, combined with the unavoidable and obvious lethal nature of the cube, was the centerpiece of the story: these prisoners were trapped in this gigantic, inescapable, death trap, that some of them in part helped to build, but no one was really responsible for. The very real possibility that not one single person knew the magnitude of the death trap that they had helped to create was a plot point that was far more interesting than the explanations for the cube that were given in the later films, partially because this sort of thing has happened in real life: individual members of an organization think they're just helping out the cause/just being human or normally bad and are no worse than any ordinary person, but together they create unspeakable evil, that no one or only a few high ranking members fully comprehend. None of this was certain, but the way it was handled gave one something to think about after the credits rolled, something that very few movies rarely do. The second and third cube movies devolved into cliche quickly. Cube 2 left questions unanswered, but they weren't interesting esoteric questions that added to the story imply by being left unanswered, rather plot threads were introduced that were simply left hanging. A plot point involving IZON was introduced, but no one is ever told exactly what IZON is, and the one person who goes survives to tell the tale is immediately executed upon escape, without explaining everything that was introduced before. The third movie just needlessly complicates the first movie, and while it is a decent stand alone feature, it shouldn't have been made in reference to Cube. So this movie boned on the first sequel. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 29, 2009, 12:57 pm

I don't know how I feel about JumpTheShark getting canned. On the one hand, TVGuide undeniably ruined a piece of internet history, no exaggeration. Some statements about shows that were on at the time that are off now were lightning in a bottle, and will never be written again. On the other hand, and I'm not trying to suck up or anything, do you really think you have a worse deal now than when JTS was in existence? Now you can comment on when practically anything started sucking. JumpTheShark barely had a page up where you could comment on music groups for a short time before that went down. You couldn't comment on movies, you couldn't comment on celebrities, you couldn't comment on phenomenons. In the end, TVGuide's move benefited all of us, because it burned the deadwood that let something better come along. -- Submitted By: () on April 29, 2009, 12:19 pm

Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, The - TV Shows
With it's razor-sharp wit satire and self-parody, I believe the show never EVER boned. Although, I'm sure a few parents would have liked to have deboned (and stuffed) Bullwinkle after one time he said (in puppet form) that the kids at home could pull off the channel changer knobs so they could guarantee being able to watch the show next week. Yeah, as hard as it may to believe, a bunch of kids managed to fight and overcome their exhaustion from their journey of travelling from the living room floor all the way to the front of the set to remove said knob because remotes hadn't been invented yet. Oh, and yes it's also true that almost all those sets were still in black and white. Somehow many of us survived those trials growing up! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 29, 2009, 11:36 am

Brendan Frasier falls into that Jason Statham category of actors- what good film has he ever done? How does this actor still get work? Who is a Brendan Frasier or, a "Mummy" fan? Then the conversation comes to how films like the "Mummy" ever get made, and how stupid is the American public to do so much business that there are multiple sequels of even less and less "quality" than the first woefully poor film. Well like PT Barnum said- "There is a sucker born every minute" when I see films like the "Mummy", movies I think "There is a fish boned every minute some sucker watches these films".... -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 29, 2009, 7:16 am

Magnum P.I. - TV Shows
Never boned. A show that centred around four single men who never made the mistake of settling down, getting a girlfriend who lasted more than an episode (Agatha Chumleigh was as close as it got) or changing in any way that altered the dynamic of the show. I didn't like that they negated the really gutsy series finale for one more season and a fairly lacklustre farewell. I liked Magnum as much as anybody, but killing him off at the end of the series was creative, memorable. Putting him back in the navy brought the show full-circle, but didn't really make a whole lot of sense. Anyway, that's not a BTF thing. The last season was pretty good on the whole. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 29, 2009, 7:11 am

Happy Days - TV Shows
Has to be when Richie and Ralph suddenly "joined the army." When Ron Howard and Donnie Most left, the show lost more of what little remaining focus it had. Richie was the central character, surrounded by his friends, Ralph, Potsie and the Fonz. With Richie and Ralph leaving, Fonz became even more central, and he and Potsie just sort of hung around with Richie's parents. To fill the vacuum, we got Ted McGinley, Jenny Piccolo becoming a real character, Fonzie's serious girlfriend and a kid, and bearded Fonzie the teacher. The show slipped in many ways before that, but Richie and Ralph leaving was the real tipping point. Anything after was crap. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 29, 2009, 6:51 am

Voltron: Defender of the Universe - TV Shows
Thing about the Sven injury was, this was due to a whole lot of plot chopping and rewriting on both sides of the ocean. You hear those stories about people in cartoons dying in the original script, then getting put back in in a voice over. This is what happened here. Technically, in Japan Sven was dead. They just didn't kill him over here, and the way they showed episodes over here, it made it look like he was just too injured to pilot the Lion. Also, extra footage was made for Voltron that never aired in Japan. The movie "Fleet of Doom," was purely for the US market: in Japan the Vehicle and Lion Voltrons had nothing to do with each other. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 28, 2009, 11:03 pm

Just popped in for a look at JTS and found a really lame entertainment magazine in its place, something that really seems like the antithesis of what the site was. So, let me get this straight...TV Guide paid a buttload of money for the site, just to scrap it and put a crappy blog in its place while retaining the title and a few of the categories just to remind us of how bloody stupid they are. At best, some executive just doesn't get it. At worst, TV Guide has hijacked a pop culture term. I don't feel comfortable saying "Jump the Shark" anymore if TV Guide owns it, especially when they bought it just to draw more traffic (under false pretenses) to a really subpar entertainment site. Jumping the Shark was about us, the TV viewers, poking fun at the industry. It empowered the viewers. TV Guide destroyed that, and replaced it with mindless hype about TV shows. Shame on them. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 9:17 pm

Lion King - Movie Series
There is a world of difference between being inspired by other people's works and ripping off other people's works. Also, I already know Kimba and the Lion King are indeed two different stories. Kimba wanted to unite people and animals, while Simba had to reclaim his crown stolen from him by his evil uncle (The Lion King's story is based on Hamlet). The storyline isn't what's the same...it's the characters. You argue that the reason there's a white lion in the production shot is because there's light shining on him from behind, making him white. If the light is what's making him white, why are his face and left hind leg, which are in the shade, also white instead of tan, like the other lion in the shot? And how do you know these testimonials are lies from "disgruntled janitors" or other unhappy employees? But why do I bother? Even if Disney wrote a totally legit written confession complete with a notary that they knowingly ripped off Kimba, you'd still refuse to believe it. -- Submitted By: () on April 28, 2009, 2:49 pm

The big battles with the improvised weapons were what made the early episodes really great.

Kara just seems more obnoxious and annoying every week, she never has anything unique to add, spouts the same nonsense over and over, and doesn't seem to have the first clue that although American Idol has nothing to do with art, the audience is supposed to believe it does.

Smallville - TV Shows
I have to say although the show declined a little in Season 7, Season 8 was the big drop-off. Michael Rosenbaum is gone, leaving a pretty big hole, despite efforts to keep talking about Lex, showing his picture and occasionally showing the back of an anonymous bald guy. All of the "grownups" are gone - Jonathan Kent is long dead, Martha just vanished at some point, and they killed off Lionel in Season 7 (John Glover was one of the show's biggest assets IMO). And for that matter, very little of Smallville actually takes place in Smallville as of Season 8. Throwing in a heavily retconned Doomsday has not helped, and really seems premature in terms of the Superman mythos. With Gough and Millar no longer at the helm, the feel of the show is different. And yet the one thing that hasn't changed is the no-flights rule, which stopped making sense at least two or three seasons ago. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 8:45 am

Lion King - Movie Series
Ok, research I've done: I own 3 DVD's of Kimba the White Lion, and I can and have watched the rest on YouTube. I also own and have seen The Lion King. It's not the same story, period. So far as the rest of what you presented, 1) people can find similarities anywhere. Add that into the fact that in many shows, there are some stock scenes that are commonly used/drawn (IE little protagonist stares up into big antagonist's eyes in defiance, man walking away from building nonchalantly as it explodes, camera focusing in on gun barrel as a shot is fired), and you have less of a slam dunk case than you would think for saying that Lion King is ripped off from Kimba. 2) The testimony of the people on that web page you gave me, I'm sorry to say, means squat. All of the statements are from the Kimba development team, and of course they aren't biased toward their creation in any way, are they? So far as the records of Disney officials "admitting" to ripping off Kimba, recordings or signed affidavits from former Disney execs or impartial 3rd party witnesses or it didn't happen. Testimony from pissed off recently fired ex-janitor X who just happened to be walking by the boardroom when the crime was confessed doesn't cut it. 3) The "white" lion in the preproduction shot, isn't. Take a look at the pic again: the plants in the shot are also white. You shine a bright enough light on an object of any color, and it looks white, this is a fact. The fact that this has happened to other plants in the light that the lion cub in question is in shows that this has also happened to the lion cub. Using your logic, and the kind of evidence you have given me, I could say that Hara and Buroson stole Fist of the North Star directly from Mad Max. I could say that J.J. Abrams stole Cloverfield from the Emmerich version of Godzilla. I could say that Gargoyles was ripping off of X-Men and Superman in places, and that Spawn, the Animation was ripping off of Gargoyles. I'm not going to say that Disney has never done questionable or dirty things in animation or business (among other things, read up on Dan O'Neil and the Air Pirates to see how Disney virtually single-handedly fucked over the entire copyright system, and implemented those 200+ year copyrights in use today). However, there is a difference between ripping someone off, and simply making different use of similar archetypal characters than the previous guy. -- Submitted By: () on April 27, 2009, 10:13 pm

There was an episode late in the show's run where Larry and Balki actually played their own infant sons. This was both disturbing and monumentally stupid at the same time. Pretty much killed the show in my mind. -- Submitted By: (LoyalPigeon) on April 27, 2009, 9:43 pm

Never thought I would write this, but as I get older, the more I appreciate his talent. He really personified the 70's, if that's a good thing. -- Submitted By: (ClanMcLeod) on April 27, 2009, 10:18 am

Disney Channel - Random Topics
When my Cable System got this channel in 1983 I was jumping for joy! All the Classic Disney Shows all the time!(And I no longer had to worry about the Sunday Sporting Events overrunning their scheduled time slots which invariably led to Disney being "Joined in Progress". Then they took all of the Classics off. It was the beginning of the end.:( -- Submitted By: (Regulus) on April 27, 2009, 8:28 am

I agree on the "Do-Gooder"s who forced many Shows to be yanked off the schedule in the 1970s. Recently I came across a "Bootleg" DVD of a Couple of Series they banned. Nice little "Blast from the Past"! -- Submitted By: (Regulus) on April 27, 2009, 8:18 am

It's not just this channel. IMO "Reality" Shows have made ALL OF TELEVISION Bone The Fish. I stopped subscribing to Cable in January of 2007. There's much more variety on DVDs and after watching them YOU GET TO KEEP THEM! :D -- Submitted By: (Regulus) on April 27, 2009, 8:09 am

Keith Olbermann - Celebrities
I cannot stand it when this guy infects sports shows with the political talk. You are Liberal- great, keep it on MSNBC. That god they god rid of him and Dan Patrick off of ESPN, it was just painful to even try to listen to this political/sports show to the point, I just stopped listening. Serve up some Cold Trout to Keith Olbermann to go with his selection of Bones! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 27, 2009, 6:59 am

JumptheShark.com - Websites
Gemstar and TV Guide all deserve a kick in their collective behinds for this move. Let's take one of the most beloved websites on the internet and destroy it... while at the same time paying millions of dollars for it. Someone should mail them a nice Fish Platter with a side of Bones from Red Lobster! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 27, 2009, 5:40 am

Howard Stern - Celebrities
Joe- I'm in complete disagreement with you. I listened to Howard for most of high school and college, then after college I moved to an area that didnt get a station that carried Howard from 1999 on. However- THANKS to him going to Sirius, I was able to get him in an area that his little to no radio stations, and the ones that do are HORRIFIC. Secondly, I listen every day, and as someone that has been a fan and listener/viewer of Howard Stern since about 1991- I have no idea how you can say that regular radio is much better than Howard, and that it's the same old stuff?!!? The show is pure comedy GOLD and much much better than it was in many many years- and perhaps it is better now than it ever was!! Also the specials and retrospective theme weeks and special shows (Riley Martin, Miserable Men, Bubba the Love Sponge etc.) are just icing on the cake. And finally, for paying for radio- I bought the lifetime subscription for Sirius this year after paying the yearly fee and I will say without a doubt- this is the best money ever spent on entertainment in my life- hands down. Between listening at home, and in the car, I listen probably about 30-35 hours a week with no commericals on the music, and very few on the "talk channels" this includes Howard. Finally- I've gotten about 5 people get Satellite radio and they all say that it was one of the coolest gadgets ever, and they could no longer ever listen to "old school AM/FM" again. I'm respectfully taking your Fish Platter off the table on this one issue!!! Now I do think Howard Boned the fish when he wouldnt reveal his income to run for Governor of NY- that was a small hush puppy to a largely no Fish Boning Career. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 27, 2009, 5:08 am

Rush Limbaugh - Celebrities
Taking politics out of the equation, Rush rocks because he says what he believes and gets paid millions of dollars for it. On the other side of the aisle so does Keith Olbermann. In America we should always be able to do that. If people don't want to listen they can just turn them off. It's not fair to say his drug problem was boning the fish. He was taking pain killers for actual pain. If it was alcohol or cocaine it would be a different matter. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 4:47 am

Michael Jackson - Celebrities
He's a fish eater for sure. Just look at the cover of thriller, then look at him now. It's not even the same person. He's turned white, you can't trust your kids, or your monkey with him, and he hangs his own kids over a rail. What's up with that? He needed help a long time ago and never got it. Now we are stuck with a major fish eater. I hear he's buying out the Captain D's chain so he can have fish anytime he wants. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 4:40 am

OJ Simpson - Celebrities
He's having his fish served to him in prison. Killing your wife, and her friend is boning a fish. So is using the race card to get out of it, as well as writing books about how you would have done it if you had done it, and so is armed robbery. I hear he doesn't even get tarter sauce in jail. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 4:35 am

Howard Stern - Celebrities
Howard has had a fish sandwich or two. His show is pretty much the same stuff. Take off your shirt and show us what you've got. He also boned when he went to the Sirus network, then lectured all of us that we need to pay for radio so we can continue to hear him. Hey Howard, when I start making millions of dollars a year to look at ladies breasts maybe I'll sign up. Until then I'll just listen to free radio which is actually better. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 4:32 am

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
He's boned because he sold himself as the agent of change, but he's just another politician that you can't trust anything that comes out of their mouths. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 4:29 am

Tom Cruise - Celebrities
This guy is a super fish eater. He boned with Scientology, he boned when he jumped on Oprah's couch. Top Gun boned, Cocktail boned, Days of Thunder boned. Tom likes fish so much he's actually been seen hanging out with the Gordon's Fisherman and Mrs. Paul. He's actually started attending Miami Dolphins and Florida Marlins games as well. He's unhinged. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 4:27 am

Paul McCartney - Celebrities
MCS said that Paul needs to learn from George and Ringo. Learn what? Learn to die from George? Learn to suck from Ringo? George was only moderately talented and wouldn't have received the exposure he did if it weren't for the Beatles. Ringo could keep a beat and that was about it. Paul and John were the Beatles, period. Without John all we have left is Paul who still rocks. His music is timeless and he has aged gracefully. He does need to get a prenup next time but I don't think Paul has ever sat down to a fish dinner. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 4:24 am

Jim Carrey - Celebrities
I'm afraid old Jimmy Boy is fond of fish. His first helping was Ace Ventur 2. What a stinker. He's actually stretched his acting talents and made several surprisingly good movies while not making an ass out of himself in the process. Most people have seen the fantastic Truman Show, but hardly anyone has seen The Majestic which was equally great. I'm afraid that in between his good movies he likes to snack on plates of freshly boned fish. His latest autism claim is laughable. Just stick to what you know Jim and that's making movies. Every now and then at least you'll get that right. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 4:17 am

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
Most of the reasons people give for this show boning have something to do with someone leaving. This is a military unit and furthermore it's a time of war. People in this type of environment move around all the time. If anything it would bone because poor Hawkeye stayed while everyone else left. It's no wonder he went bonkers on the finale. I'll admit that they did show the North Koreans and Chinese a little on the softer side but the show was primarily about the hardships and the relationships of an American MASH unit in Korea in the 50's. I don't think they boned any fish. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 4:05 am

Police Academy - Movie Series
The first one was good but like other movies such as Porky's, they should have stopped when they were ahead. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 3:52 am

Halloween - Movie Series
You might say they boned when they did Halloween 2 because horror movies that film a sequel usually bone immediately. The reason they didn't bone at that time was that at the end of the first movie Michael Myers fell out of the window and when the Doctor looked out, Michael had vanished. Halloween 3 brought out all new people with a completely different storyline about a toy maker. It didn't totally stink but I don't see how or why they kept the Halloween name. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 3:50 am

Kiss - Music Groups
I think they really boned the fish when they did the disco sounding "I was made for loving you" song. They came close when they took the makeup off, then put it back on again, but I guess they had to do something to shake things up a bit. Departing from your rock roots in an attempt to cash in on the disco craze is most definitely boning the fish big time. They even had hush puppies and cole slaw to boot. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 3:40 am

Mad About You - TV Shows
I don't know if it was Paul Reiser, or Helen Hunt, or maybe the stories, but I always hated this show. I think it might be Paul Reiser. I think I would rather watch an infomercial than this show and let me tell you, I hate infomercials. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 3:34 am

ER - TV Shows
What killed me about this show was that it was more dangerous to be anywhere near this ER. A helicopter crashed into the ER, the ER exploded, and I think someone drove their car through the ER as well. Another funny thing was that the victims showed up carrying or wearing what they were injured in. I remember a football player that was injured and they brought him in wearing his uniform, pads, and helmet. To top it off the cheerleaders all followed him still holding their pom poms. In real life people drop what they were holding to rush in and the medics take scissors and cut your clothes off. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 27, 2009, 3:26 am

I voted for both Rosanne and reality shows. The channel was meant to show 50's-70's classics. Rosanne just killed the nostalgia of the channel and this is coming from someone who grew up in the 90s -- Submitted By: (gpshaw) on April 27, 2009, 2:26 am

Wal-Mart - Random Topics
Walmart should be revered by the left, they sell food and even prescription drugs at low prices, but since they don't allow their workers to run the company via unionization, and they employ "sweat shop" labor (fun fact if the sweat shops closed the kids employed there would go back to the old ways of making money, which are far more dangerous) they're the devil. It's a shame since Walmart really is a great store -- Submitted By: (gpshaw) on April 27, 2009, 2:17 am

Drawn Together - TV Shows
I'm torn here, I laughed at the show but now that I look back at the older episodes I find they're not that entertaining. But if it didn't bone from the start it certainly did once the writers became overly dependent on gross out jokes. If I wanted to see poo thrown at people I'd go to a primate house. -- Submitted By: (gpshaw) on April 27, 2009, 2:11 am

Lord of the Rings, The - Movie Series
I respect LOtR for it's scope and it's brilliant cinematography, but the movies themselves just don't do it for me. Maybe it's too complex for me, or maybe I'm just not into fantasy movies like another poster (though I love Narnia so that points to the former rather than the latter reason) Either way great movie production wise, bad plot wise. -- Submitted By: (gpshaw) on April 27, 2009, 2:07 am
