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.

D.C. Follies - TV Shows
This was Syd and Marty Krofft's foray into political satire, and appealing to a more grown up audience after spending most of the 1970s doing children\'s shows. Great stuff, starring Fred Willard as a live action bartender serving puppets of various famous politicians and celebrities of the time. I often wonder if this show didn\'t have much of an audience because grown ups didn\'t want to watch a \"Syd & Marty Kroft\" show, while kids weren\'t getting the sofisticated humor. I found a similar effect on Malcolm In The Middle......humor geared toward grown people who may not want to watch a show about kids. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 21, 2012, 11:52 am

Lost in Space - TV Shows
If you view the "Time Merchant" episode, apparently Smith's excess weight on the Jupiter 2 prevented it from being destroyed by an asteroid, so his sabotage actually backfired and saved all their lives even though he got them lost in space. Knowing this, he has the chance to do it over again, avoid stowing away, save himself and let them die, but decides he can't let that happen and stows away all over again. Maybe it boned then, but that was Smith's "redemption". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 21, 2012, 11:32 am

Yep, exactly why I'm leaning towards voting for Gary Johnson for President. I see the positive things he's doing in New Mexico and the fact that he believes in fiscal conservatism, social libertarianism aligns very closely with my own independent political views. As a moderate, the last thing I want is a religious nut job or froot loop liberal making my decisions for me.

Lost in Space - TV Shows
I thought that it was really odd how they changed the Dr. Smith character. But I guess they couldn't keep him as a dangerous/murderous saboteur. The only thing about the movie was his compassion for Will (for example, not letting him see the graves of his parents). I think if they had developed that aspect of the Dr. Smith character more in the TV series, it would have given a lot more depth to the show. Still interesting, though. I particularly liked the episode where they encountered a "hillbilly" family consisting of supernatural characters (werewolf, witch, etc) -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 20, 2012, 1:31 am

Shanequia's stuff is quite humorous. You should check out her profile. A lot of her comments actually made me laugh out loud (and that's a hard thing to do). But you shouldn't give her a negative vote (or look down on her) just because she speaks in a more simplistic African-American dialect. This type of speaking is the direct result of slavery in the U.S. If you look past the dialect, you will see how funny her comments really are. -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 20, 2012, 12:13 am

Republican Party - Random Topics
Over the last few months, the GOP has been doing stuff that's basically causing me to not take them seriously on their "smaller government" stance. It seems hypocritical to me that they "want the government to stay out of people's lives," and yet many of the politicians in the party want to make stuff like same-sex marriage and abortion illegal. In addition, the fact that some Michigan republicans got offended when a woman used the word "vagina" in an abortion debate makes me remember why I'm hardly taking them seriously lately. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on June 19, 2012, 10:50 pm

I didn't think the TV movies were that bad, although 'Trial Of..' was my least favorite. The ending could've been better, unless they were planning on making a sequel involving Kingpin.

FoxTrot - Random Topics
I enjoyed this strip up until the early 2000s. When all the characters had an equal role, this strip was at its strongest. However, around the early 2000s, the focus went mostly to Jason, with the rest of the Fox family only playing a side role, and the stories got really geek focused with talk of movies, video games, and computer stuff that appeals to geeks but probably no one else. Also, the jokes began to get recycled. You just saw the quality take a decline, which is why I'm not surprised at all that Bill Amend semi-retired and made it a Sunday only strip. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 16, 2012, 6:33 pm

House - TV Shows
@PT: There's a general consensus among mental health professionals that House has Asperger's syndrome or a similar diagnosis on the autism spectrum. One typical thought-process quirk among Aspies and others on the spectrum is the need to categorize everything, even if it's according to a category that seems off-the-wall or irrelevant to other folks. So it's likely that same quirk plays into House's thought process for arriving at medical diagnoses. Because of how his brain processes information, for him the starting point has to be categorizing his patients as either having or not having sarcoidosis. Hence, House always asks if sarcoidosis has been ruled out. Once that question has been answered, he's good to go. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 16, 2012, 12:14 am

Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In - TV Shows
I've seen reruns in syndication and was disappointed, and that had nothing to do with me believing any hype. I saw many of these when they were first run. I was pre-schoo and grade-school age at the time and thought it was the most hilarious thing on TV then. Being only 7 when it was cancelled, I was heartbroken, and couldn't for the life of me understand why for years after its cancellation it was never re-run anywhere. Then in the early to middle 1980, Channel 9 in NY (then WOR, now WWOR) started showing reruns. I was lost. I barely cracked a smile. All those "Watergate" jokes were no longer funny, mainly because Watergate was a very drawn out scandal that brought down two Presidents (including Ford who failed to win the election of 1976 in part because he pardoned Nixon). By the mid-1980s people had grown weary of kicking Nixon who had been out of public life for a decade. Also, many of their popular culture references were passing references to people you wouldn't have heard of or events that made news at the time but meant little in passing as of the rerun date. It never boned, because you can't predict how your reruns are going to be received by a future audience, but as another person pointed out, those reruns are good for little more than nostalgia, and you'll have to google much of that to know what they mean lol. Believe me, I hate writing this. One of my very first favorite shows in life doesn't appeal to me in the least anymore, and that SUCKS! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:51 pm

Rock Hudson - TV Shows
Staying in the closet was a very understandable move at the time he did it. I don't think he "boned" because of that. He didn't get to be gay in 2012.....that's what people need to understand. A romantic lead like him "coming out" in those days would have been a death knell for his career. Would he have gotten the Dynasty gig? Hell, it wrecked Ellen's sitcom, and everyone including the kitchen sink had a "you go gay girl" attitude going into that. Bottom line, even today, once you "come out" people more closely scrutinize the characters you play, and the moment you're asked to play a "straight" you're going to be under a microsope from people looking for wooden or contrived acting in that situation. Looking back on it, how awkward is it to see Robert Reed nuzzling Florence Henderson? How painful is it to watch Dick Sargent kissing Elizabeth Montgomery? Rock Hudson was actually a way better actor along those lines, but he was also helped by the ambiguity about his personal life (until he got sick). He was an exception. By and large, gays aren't very good at playing straights. That's why Jim Parsons' "coming out" was a mere formality for anyone paying attention. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:17 pm

Rhoda - TV Shows
A classic example of a show that couldn't figure out what direction it wanted to go in, so we have: Season 1 - Rhoda single, then dating, then married Season 2 - Rhoda separated but working on it Season 3 - Rhoda divorced....mind you no specific reason is ever given why she and Joe are incompatible. Season 4 - Rhoda changes jobs, begins dating a doctor seriously, makes one wonder what the point was in divorcing her in the first place. I believe this season was also incomplete as it was cancelled mid-way. Bottom line, when you conceive of a show, it's generally a good idea to have a clue what you want to do with it, although in a way this approach was clever in a "car wreck you can't take your eyes off" kind of way. After all, they did manage to dupe viewers who wondered if Rhoda and Joe were ever going to work things out, into watching for 3 plus seasons. Hell, they even mocked this in the final MTM episode with the purportedly future (and very old) Mary saying she just got a letter from Rhoda who's still waiting for Joe to come back. Show was pretty much a con job, and it was the viewers being conned. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:01 pm

Remote Control - TV Shows
If you liked this show, fine, but I voted sucked from the start because of what this show represented to me. It was the beginning of MTV putting music videos on the back burner in favor of "programming". It wasn't the beginning of the end for MTV playing good tunes. Them caving on showing Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" was and sent them hurtling toward Top-40 land. However, this was worse. It was MTV acknowledging that the end was inevitable. I did not tune into MTV to watch quiz shows. I watched it because I liked the original concept of showing rock videos and sometimes alternative vids for music you generally didn't hear on mainsteam radio. Michael soon fixed that, and shows like "Remote Control" made it clear this network was going to be all about bells, whistles and pop, and less about music going forward. It sure has turned out that way. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 3:42 pm

Real World, The - TV Shows
I voted "Staged" but the truth is it sucked from the start, because it was staged from the start. The best thing about this show was the episode of "Laroquette" it spawned that spoofed it with Chill Mitchell being in something called "The Reality House", which was funny because as ridiculous as they made it on Laroquette, it was amazingly true to what it was satirizing, namely highly mutable post-teeny boppers thrown together without a care or a clue in the world. Both a guy and girl in the "reality house" go from having all kinds of problems with Chill's antics, to thinking they're in love with Chill the next time they speak on camera. Yes, it was assinine, but yes, that was "The Real World".....and that's why this "Laroquette" ep was funny. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 3:34 pm

Pee-Wee's Playhouse - TV Shows
I don't suppose any of y'all has seen Apocalypse Now, which "Larry" Fishburne appeared in long before his part on this show. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 2:47 pm

Partridge Family, The - TV Shows
Probably true about Ricky only appearing in a few shows. Probably just seems like more in reruns, but it was still more than we needed. I wonder if he was put on there to shut up the fans who still had their panties in a knot over Jeremy Gelbwaks, who by many accounts was all but begging to be canned with his off camera hyjinx. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 2:39 pm

My Two Dads - TV Shows
Even if this show was good from beginning to end, which it wasn't as it boned on day 1, it still would have boned by now as the entire meaning of "My Two Dads" has changed since the 1980s. In fact, even IN the 1980s this title brought about snickers and "are they for real?" type comments. Can't say I like the premise of not knowing who the real dad is because both were using mom as a "test tube" in the 1960s either. Why not just call it "My Dead Mother The Petrie Dish"? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 11:34 am

Alcatraz - TV Shows
Alcatraz attempted to ride off the coattails of a successful franchise, in this case Lost. It could never measure up. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on June 15, 2012, 11:25 am

My Mother The Car - TV Shows
I agree not every episode of this one season wonder was bad. I think the real problem was the title. Too gimmicky and cartoonish....wasn't going to attract grown people much. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 11:19 am

Munsters Today, The - TV Shows
"Popular with international audiences".....and people wonder why Americans are so damned arrogant. Could it be the rest of the world is just completely daft? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 11:11 am

Whale Wars - TV Shows
I only saw a few episodes, I do not like how Animal planet condoning criminal activity and intimation. I wash the whaling ships had a 50 cal. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on June 15, 2012, 11:11 am

Morton Downey, Jr. Show, The - TV Shows
When the show started MDJ was an unapologetic Conservative. As it went along, he began pandering to the left, showing segments of him doing raps with "bruthas" as such. Seemed phony to me and not the reason I originally started watching him. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 10:59 am

Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
How can anyone view one of those awful John Cleese-less episodes and say this never boned? From what I recall, the only one that was semi-funny was the one about Eric Idle buying the ant named Marcus, and apparently John Cleese did some of the writing in that one. "Hamlet", "Mr. Neutron" and "The Golden Age of Ballooning" were as unfunny and overdone as it gets. Big fan of seasons 1-3, but no John in season 4 = few laughs. They also took out Michael Palin's old man who always introduced the show with "it's..." Blasphemy! How could they do that to a show staple! It's like they wanted it to be thought of as a different show without Cleese.....and it was....an outright bummer. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 10:52 am

Mission: Impossible - TV Shows
Am I the only one that remembers the episode where Rollin Hand first appears wearing these glasses with big bulging eyes on them....and then for some reason turns evil and against his friends? Was so young when I saw it that I can't remember exactly how it ended, but I'm sure there was an ep like that. Is that how they wrote him out of the show? I remember hearing Martin Landau supposedly wanted more money and mocked Leonard Nimoy's Spock character when he was picked to replace him. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 10:35 am

Malcolm in the Middle - TV Shows
With the comings and goings of so many recurring characters, like all of Malcolm's friends other than Stevie being gone the last season (sure sign of a budget cut), it could have boned lots of times, but oddly it never did. Episodes were always funny. Gotta vote never boned....and I'm mad as hell at FX for taking this off my morning reruns and replacing it with Home Confinement, I mean Improvement. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 9:44 am

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
Along the lines of "St. Hawkeye", the episode where the helicopter pilot was paying kids to collect "gadgets", and indirectly causing them to be blown up by land mines, was on the other day. I decided I'd seen that one enough. Honestly, how do issues like this even OCCUR to comedy writers? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 1:15 pm

Love Sidney - TV Shows
How much time do you have? Sidney's glossed-over homosexuality was the worst. If you're going to do THIS show, be honest about the lead character as you were in the movie it was spun off from. Then there's that kid. Everything about her right on down to the actress' name was annoying. Couldn't act. Couldn't sing. What kind of a name is "Kaleena Kiff"? Maybe her middle name was Kristina, so her initials can be K.K.K.? The brilliant parents of child actresses.....again! Getting back to her singing, in the opening theme, at one point she sings "friends forever" so shrill that I though I was listening to Edith Bunker at the wrong speed. Bad....BAD stuff. The original "Sidney Shorr" movie was well done, but this was a terrible follow up to it. Swoosie Kurtz held her own for what that's worth considering the material was so bad. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 11:29 am

Lou Grant - TV Shows
I think the point was to show an "other side" to the Lou Grant character. Having lost his gig at WJM and the independent network news show he produced there he moved on to a more serious job at a newspaper and became a more serious guy. I also don't think he drank as much on this show as he did on MTM, when he was frequently drowning his sorrows (his divorce, bad ratings, etc.), and even ends up in bed with Sue Ann as a result once. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 11:22 am

Lone Ranger, The - TV Shows
It boned when "Lone" impersonated an Italian immigrant named "Luigi", and used this accent that was straight out of Joe Dolce's "shappappa-you-face". He was also constantly referring to himself in the 3rd person...."a-yessa....Luigi she fix-a for you." It was so over the top it was actually funny, but I really doubt they were trying to be. This rivaled Fred Flintstone's alter-ego "Goggles Pizano", which WAS supposed to be funny. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 11:13 am
