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.

Caught this last summer on MeTV and was hooked, so I got the DVD series weeks later. Still in the middle of the 3rd season and the storylines seem to go downhill right about here. However, if you have a couple of dollars, the nostalgia alone is worth the price. Never thought I would live to see Mike Brady and Richard Pryor in one episode. Or Howard Cunningham as a criminal. -- Submitted By: (jwswindell) on October 19, 2016, 12:48 am

This season is boring. I mean, I got used to the little beefs between the contestants and the judges. Or the diva with expensive shoes who rarely makes to the elimination round.

Golden Girls, The - TV Shows
The show never fully jumped but certain episodes are much better than others. One that is bad, was the unneccesary 2 part story of Dorothys Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. If Dr Harry Weston of Empty Nest is such a great pal of Dorothy, why didnt she just go to him in the first place instead of waiting until halfway through Part 2? The Part 2 ending was utterly ridiculous where Dorothy just so happens to see the doctor, whom she saw in New York, at some random, swanky Miami restaurant. Give me a break! Another JTS moment was when Rose...again, VERY small world...just so happens to run into her biological father from St. Olaf at the hospital in Miami. The problem is the guy looks to be about the same age as Rose! Brother, perhaps, but Roses father would have been pushing the century mark or pushing up daisies by that point. -- Submitted By: (BTFan) on May 20, 2016, 2:44 pm

There was only one episode I didnt like and that was the one where Dorothy scratches a winning lottery ticket worth 10k. I think Blanche put it in her late husbands jacket, which was in a box that was meant to be put away in an attic or something. But what does Rose do, she places it in a Salvation Army box or something. The girls find out about it, they track down the box and jacket at a local homeless shelter. They find the ticket but grow a conscience and leave it at the shelter after they get to know the people who reside there. -- Submitted By: (BTFan) on May 20, 2016, 2:35 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
Roseanne was a brilliant show, as good as sitcoms can get. There are dozens of episodes which are written and acted flawlessly. Just amazing craft. But after the sixth season ended, around the time of Jackies pregnancy, the show hit the wall. A sudden shift of producers and writers, not to mention Roseannes break up with Tom Arnold, ended the magic. The seventh season was not as funny or polished. The eight season was astonishingly unfunny. And the ninth season was such a shift in tone and a betrayal of direction that it was like watching a train wreck. When I watch the reruns these days I stop once Jackie gets married because after that the show began losing steam. -- Submitted By: (BTFan) on May 20, 2016, 2:10 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
Ok, everybody has different opinions on this one, but listen here. We can pretty much all agree that the first four seasons were good, right? The first one was so so though. Beckys departure at the beginning of the fifth did not harm the show in any way. It actually was the funniest season yet. Then Darlene left at the beginning of the 6th, and although we would miss Darlene, it STILL didnt hurt the show in anyway. Then new Becky came a few episodes into that one, and as bad as she was, the show STILL wasnt hurt, that year gave us the pot smoking episode, the masturbation episode, the Darlene and David In Chicago discovery, the custody battle show, the lesbian kiss, the birth of Jackies kid. Those episodes, if you really recall, had stellar writing, regardless of any missing characters or new characters or weird plot twists or any new look Roseanne may have had or the highlights in Dans hair. It was the writing, which was superbly inspired, that made the show better than ever. And the tags were classic too, such as the cops parody or the obnoxious christmas lights. I have never seen such fierceness in a shows bang quickness of wit, with maybe the exception of the simpsons. This slowed down later in the season, when Jackie was getting married, but in no way did it jump shark. Then came the seventh season, which didnt EXACTLY taint the show. Yes there was some silliness, like the Mark Becky trailer episodes, the Gilligan island fantasy, the fact that David had wet dreams about Roseanne. Yes, there were recycled ideas, like another drug episode and the fact that Roseanne was now pregnant after Jackie. But overall, the show did pretty well in maintaining a high standard of comedy, particularly in shows like thanksgiving, Bevs alcoholism, and the naked neighbors. It was still a highly relevant show that, for all its silliness and overt self reference and pop culture tie ins, kept one liners and clever tag endings a high art on the show. The one thing that DID outright suck about seventh season is that Darlene became an outright bitch. She was no longer sarcastic in reaction to the absurdity of the people around her, she was just a bitch. And nothing more. Then, the beginning of the end. The eighth season starts, and there we see Roseanne looking softer, the set lighting became plush and fuzzy. At first it doesnt seem so bad, what with the new becky coming back. The show had good ideas, like the 50s sitcom parody, but the writing simply couldnt afford the shows any sharp insight or outright hysteria. The acting also degenerated much further, particularly in the episode where theres a new diner across the street. Roseanne smashing a toaster through her own diner window in order to create a drive thru was just too unrealistically impulsive to be funny. The part where they attempt to sabotage the restaurant was even sillier, like an episode of perfect strangers. It was a blah season in progress. But what really marked the shows first truly horrific episode, where the plot, the acting, the writing, and the idea itself was just downright excruciating to witness, was the Halloween episode where Jerry was born. After that, I dont think anyone could say that it wasnt a truly strained show. The polical statements became blander, what with episodes where DJ refuses to kiss a black girl or the thanksgiving show that ends in a circle dance in order to pay homage to native americans everywhere. Every character on the show was strained, including dan, who became a bumbling father figure in the shows desperate attempt to shed some new comedy light on what was already a perfected character. The show jumped shark, but what really marked the show of the characters death, what really showed that the Connors werent the Connors anymore was the disney world episode. In earlier seasons, the Connors would have gone to Disney world and complain how much it sucked, but they actually promoted it in the footsteps of full house. They were a white trash family who were thoroughly enjoying a sense of renewed life on what should be seen as a hell on earth. They also followed that episode up by a horrible one where David takes a job at an amusement park. The show was no longer funny. At all. And the 9th and final season, well we all know that was the absolute worst. I would also like to add that the last season wasnt even fit for a public access channel. -- Submitted By: (BTFan) on May 20, 2016, 2:08 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
Ok, I watched Roseanne from day one, and there were several moments right in the last few seasons where the show jumped the shark. First, as we all know, the new Becky. Oh my God, could they have picked a worse actress?! I liked it better when Becky was gone...at least I didnt have to deal with the new Becky and the boring plot surrounding her constant attempts at making a marriage with Mark. On to Darlene...she was one of the best characters on the show, until she started getting all soft instead of sarcastic. This all culminated when she married David and got pregnant. The lottery thing sucked the big one, yes, but the show went down hill way before that. Lets take a look at Jackie. She was at her best when she was single. Her constant quest to find the perfect man was a key plot in the show. Marrying Fred, Mr Boring, started her downhill trend, but when they had a baby and then got divorced, she got even worse. I think bringing back Leon was a great idea since he made the diner years great, but then he got all domestic with Scott, and he and Roseanne were suddenly friends. Her mother was also a great character when she nagged and bothered everyone, but then she was an alcoholic lesbian...what the hell was that all about?! All these character assassinations, plus Traci Lords, Disneyworld, baby Jerry Garcia (wtf?), and the trailer park took Roseanne from masterpiece to piece of crap. -- Submitted By: (BTFan) on May 20, 2016, 1:52 pm

For me, everything really changed when the gang hit puberty. The first two seasons of this show were amazing. Do not get me wrong, there are a few good ones in the later seasons, for example, the Jeff Hunter episodes, but I tend to skip the Tori season nowadays. I cannot put my finger on it, but something was missing in that chapter. The vibe, clothes, jokes, and innocence of the earlier seasons just was not there in season 5. It became too much of a TNBC show at that point. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on April 30, 2016, 9:14 am

I loved this series and there should have been a 5th season. It was promised - not sure what happened. I liked the movie very much, but they tried to cram too much into it.

The NWO generated a lot of interest and was a huge ratings grab but after a while it got to be too much. For me personally the best thing about WCW during that time was the solid cruiserweight division. Too bad the NWO got too crowded and eventually lost its meaning and then the Fingerpoke of Doom happened...most people consider that the beginning of the end. Throw in stuff like mismanagement of the company, the ego of Eric Bischoff, and later the atrocious booking style of Vince Russo and you got a recipe for disaster. -- Submitted By: (HulkFanGuy) on March 6, 2016, 1:36 am

Pokemon - TV Shows
The show boned when Takeshi Shudo left. Shudo was known for suprisingly mature writing in shows like GoShogun and Minky Momo, and although 4Kids censored his themes, the writing was still good. Shudo even planned out an ending with a human vs. Pokemon war. The Mewtwo vs. Mew subbed version is actually very dark with a moral on why do we exist. Unfortunetly, his idea for an adult friendly kids show was meddeled by the executives and 4Kids and made the show driven by merchandising and using formulas way too often. Ash is a weak protagonist, as Shudo intended for Team Rocket to be intentionally more interesting. When he left, the show boned. -- Submitted By: (Cavery210) on March 3, 2016, 3:12 pm

Adam focuses way too much on the 1990s culture that started in the 1980s. I guess we can expect a Full House reference next on show since it on TV from 1987 to 1989. It is rather ridiculous how many 90s references he sticks in there, if you ask me. How can you have a show set in the 80s and not mention Fleetwood Mac, David Bowie, The Fonz, Jim Henson, The Brady Bunch, Jaws, Archie Bunkers Place, Scooby Doo, Superfriends, The Jeffersons, and Donna Summer? You know, REAL 1980s culture. I do not think Adam has a good understanding of what the 1980s were, he only grew up in them. Oh yeah, Hypercolor came out in 1991, so it is not 80s at all. With that said, I like the characters on this show, but that is it. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on February 23, 2016, 6:09 pm

The pilot was fantastic, and the premise of all these kids finding ways to live in a setting so far from life (the hospital) was great. But when Eva showed up in the third episode, she looked way too young and sexy to be the mother of Jordi (or anyone else in the series). It was also the point at which RBS started to be less of a dramedy and much more of a soap opera, what with Jordi, his mother, Dr. McAndrew, Leo, Kara, Emma, and others suddenly in relationships. I thought to myself, I do not think Steven Spielberg produced this with the idea that it would become a soap.

Outsourced - TV Shows
I remember watching the pilot episode, just to see how awful it would be. The Indian characters were portrayed as dumb--the Detroit, home of automobiles and black people bit was one example. India has its share of smart people--engineers, doctors, etc.--and I would have liked to have seen at least one Indian character who was only working in that customer service job just to keep food on the table while still looking for the job he really wanted. Judging by what I saw in the pilot, Outsourced also resorted to using American pop culture as a crutch source for jokes, and to a greater degree than most sitcoms--the series was set at a company that sells novelties such as cheesehead hats, fake vomit, and so on. -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on November 10, 2015, 11:05 am

Brady Bunch, The - TV Shows
The show started going south when the rumor mill began about the love triangle involving Alice, Mike and Sam the Butcher. I am talking about the real life people, not the characters of course. Not many people remember this, but it happened in late 1972. This was at a time when knowledge of Robert Reed being a pillow-biter was not wide-spread. Because the actors never spoke about it, most people speculated that Robert Reed and Sam the Butcher were double-teaming Alice...it was not until after Robert Reed was outed as a Comrade of the Colon that people started to rethink what REALLY went on in the love triangle. The tension between Mike Brady and Alice is undeniable after this event, so perhaps Alice was upset that Mike was monopolizing Sam the Butchers "meat"? According to crew members of the show, the saying around the set was: Never get in between Robert Reed and his meat. I am guessing Alice took exception to this and that is what caused the obvious on-air tension. Frankly, I am surprised Sherwood Schwartz did not replace Alice for the remainder of the series...he could have easily called in Hazel to take over role of Alice, but for some reason he decided to let them try to work it out. It clearly backfired, and as a result, the show Boned the Fish. -- Submitted By: () on October 15, 2015, 12:57 pm

Real Time with Bill Maher - TV Shows
sharp, Wait! Are you saying that Maher who said those who held sharp objects against defenseless womens throats for the purpose of taking over airplanes to murder thousands of innocent men, women and children were courageous has said that a teen who put together a clock deserved to be arrested for being a Muslim ? Huh ? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 6, 2015, 9:59 am

Colbert Report, The - TV Shows
No idea what idiots are saying the show is bad, likely bitter right wing losers without a funny bone. Colbert was one of the best political satire shows ever and that he could play such a strange character unscripted off the fly night after night is impressive. The show is going to be well remembered as truly great American political satire. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on October 5, 2015, 5:35 am

What's Happening!! - TV Shows
This is one of my top five. Just chilling in L.A. not bothering anybody. Need extra change? Just get a job. Girlfriend left you? Go to the soda shop and hook up with somebody else. No yelling, getting high or shooting and best of all, nobody saying that n word. Yay! -- Submitted By: (jwswindell) on October 4, 2015, 9:50 pm

What's Happening Now!! - TV Shows
Seeing this for the first time since it aired 30 years ago and it was sad. Dees guest appearances are not bad but everyone else is on serious struggle. I keep watching the reruns hoping to see Martin Lawrence and Tracy Morgan before they blew up but I keep running into Anne Marie Johnson. One of the people who helped kill In Living Color, when she called herself doing hooks with l.a. dream team, I had to leave the room -- Submitted By: (jwswindell) on October 4, 2015, 9:41 pm

Real Time with Bill Maher - TV Shows
I love me some Bill Maher. I stood by him when he was canned from Politically Incorrect and when the right-wing fundies went nuts over Religiosity. I applauded him when he took on the 911 deniers (they say the US government destroyed the towers) and the climate change deniers who refuse to believe science. I parted ways with Mr. Maher however when he recently came out as an Islamaphobe. He spends a significant amount of every show now slamming Islam and saying its followers are all evil and need to go away and/or die. He justified the treatment of the 14-year old Texas student who was jailed for making a digital clock. He said the teacher was completely right in having the child arrested because he was a Muslim. That is so disgusting I cannot even begin to justify it. Bill Maher, buddy, FU! -- Submitted By: (sharp143) on October 4, 2015, 3:26 pm

Fear the Walking Dead - TV Shows
So yeah, everyone acknowledges this thing got off to a VERY slow start. The first season wraps up tonight (Oct 4, 2015) and very little has taken place after the initial zompocalypse. They almost never show walkers (zombies) and I agree the characters are repulsive and unlikable. The best part of the whole series so far was when Nick (smug, lying-ass junkie twat) was beaten by his mother. Believe it or not there were bloggers who said the mom was guilty of child abuse even though Nick is 19 and was caught stealing morphine from an old man dying of cancer. I would have beaten him, too, only with a stick and not bare hands! I hope this show gets it together, I really do, it has such potential! -- Submitted By: (sharp143) on October 4, 2015, 2:55 pm

2 Broke Girls - TV Shows
I had never heard of this show until I heard some preacher on the radio say it was going to be the downfall of civilization. That was enough for me and I started watching.

And the cupcakes look delicious! -- Submitted By: (sharp143) on October 4, 2015, 2:23 pm

Fresh Off the Boat - TV Shows
Season 2 is underway and the shows are smarter and pulling in great ratings. Barefoot Dave wears a kilt to school and avoids being pounded by the jocks with a clever strategy, grandma shows her contempt for the kids by referring to them by numbers, dad lies about everything and mom discovers the magic of chardonnay. Funny show. -- Submitted By: (sharp143) on October 4, 2015, 2:12 pm

Attack of the Show - TV Shows
This was one of my favorite shows, I loved the wide variety of entertainment and tech it covered in a humorous way. It went bad when Kevin left. You already saw the writing on the wall when you started to hear about G4 possibly being purchased but theres no show without Kevin. The episodes where John Barrowman filled in were pretty good but a popular in demand actor isn't going to save a show network execs want to have on the chopping block. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on September 29, 2015, 3:11 am

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
I'll just come out and say it...the Carl Carlson episode was the most boring ever. With careful writing, they could have written a stereotype that would have been funny without being embarrassing to the minority community. Iceland...really? Now they beat the whole Sideshow Bob thing to death...we get it already, he hates Bart. I think bringing back Homer's brother as a regular would be a nice swan song for the next few years...the series finale could be him and Selma getting married. -- Submitted By: (jwswindell) on September 28, 2015, 2:48 pm

Lost Saucer, The - TV Shows
One of those shows that sounded as though it would have been GREAT on paper with funny, zany established performers [Buzzi and Nabors], a wacky premise [they've accidently kidnapped two Earthling kid stowaways but can't find their way back] and cheesy special effects. Problem is that none of this actually meshed and even as a sci-fi loving kid viewer, I found it more tedious than even "Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space". -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 27, 2015, 6:25 pm

Truer points were never said, Mr.anonymous writer (who explained that rather than campy, that it was satirical!) I also side with all of the other positive cheese is good comments as ocferman put it. Holy Airplane like Satire (because that is what it was!)! Naked Gun..!

Stargate SG-1 - TV Shows
Every episode from Series 1-6 was excellent (with the obvious exception of the clip shows). It felt like one single show that had evolved naturally from episode 1. It wasn't until Series 7 that it started to deviate from the SG-1 we all knew and loved. Put simply, a good number of the episodes in Series 7 were uninteresting, contained uninteresting dialogue, poor guest characters, less stargate to planet storytelling and it was full of bad ideas such as the super-soldier, revealing the fake president (taking away that realism) and starships - adopting a Star Trek format. The only good classic format episodes from Series 7 are Fragile Balance, Revisions, Chimera, Heroes, Inauguration and Lost City. Series 8 was a big improvement over Series 7, although it was different. The best and funniest character (the main reason to watch) was taken off all missions and put in charge of the base, which meant he had to be the serious background character. Somehow, it worked and a lot of the magic from Series 1-6 found its way to back Series 8. There were more good episodes than bad ones, the only bad ones being Icon, Avatar and Sacrifices. Series 9 and 10 were unwatchable as far as I was concerned. Cameron Mitchell was a poor replacement for O'Neill, General Landry was simply ok, Sam Carter's was voice different, losing all enthusiasm when she spoke, which made her seem as though she couldn't give a damn. Daniel seemed to lose much of his personality and Vala was outright annoying. Teal'c went into distant mode and mainly hung around with the Jaffa, inflatng depressing scenes that were part of depressing storylines. The Ori were a poor substitute for the Goa'uld and the episodes inviolving Baal were far fetched. Another annoyance in Series 9 and 10 were the opening titles, which turned the realistic Stargate sequence into what looked like a low budget computer animation. -- Submitted By: (anicetune) on September 26, 2015, 5:55 pm

Degrassi Junior High - TV Shows
I watched the original Canadian version of Degrassi years ago when it was in first-run syndication. I thought it was pretty daring in the choice of subject matter but I was absolutely stunned by one episode. Joey Jerimiah was trying to raise money to buy a car and he went around making stupid bets. One kid bet him he would not walk through the cafeteria during lunch time bare assed naked. Other kids got in on the betting and Joey stood to make a small fortune if he did it. To everyone's surprise, he went through with it and they actually showed his bare ass on TV. An American show would never had done that and I remember thinking that Canada must be a pretty liberal place! -- Submitted By: (spacer) on September 24, 2015, 6:15 am

Wonder Years, The - TV Shows
I would say "The Wonder Years" really boned the fish when the 5th season started. It seemed like the fourth season was going to be the last (hence the 23rd episode titled "The Wonder Years") as it should have been, but, they decided to drag it out for another two more years. Granted, some of the episodes in the last two seasons were great (especially the twist ending), but, I'm glad it ended after that. It worked a lot better when the kids were younger. As soon as Kevin started having a growth spurt, he stopped being a cute little kid, Paul stopped wearing his glasses which made his geeky persona essentially nonexistent, and, as far as Winnie, nothing much I can say about her other than what regular teenagers normally go through during puberty. Another problem I'd also like to point out: Paul and Winnie pretty much took a backseat to Kevin's love life. I know this show pretty much revolved around Kevin's character, but, it seems as though the writers forgot that the whole purpose of "The Wonder Years" was to show a child growing up with his friends and family during that time period. Even the last season started kind of an early '90s vibe to it. All in all, this show will always hold a special place in my heart. I was sad when they cancelled it, but, it was time to let it go. -- Submitted By: (ARNGUS) on September 20, 2015, 5:23 pm

Law and Order SVU - TV Shows
Mostly I really like this show, but I kinda agree with the person above about too much detail. I personally find it too triggering, but it might be helpful for some people to know that other people go through that too, so that they know they're not alone. I can see why the amount of detail exists, but I am not always in a headspace to stomach it. I feel like it kinda went downhill in the last few seasons. I disliked the shifting emphasis from cases onto the personal lives of the team. -- Submitted By: (J29G) on September 10, 2015, 8:06 pm

7th heaven - TV Shows
Sometimes I like to sit down and hate watch this show. It was always rather stupid. I don't blame the actress who played Mary for wanting to leave. As far as the Ruthie goes, I think TV shows tend to really try and keep the youngest kid as young as possible well beyond what they should. I think at some point it was obvious that Ruthie was aging, yet she kept getting immature little kid dialog. I think that's why she comes across as irritating a lot of the time. -- Submitted By: (J29G) on September 10, 2015, 7:52 pm

Henry Danger - TV Shows
OMG this is a funny show! The whole thing is a rip on stupid TV heroes. At first I was horrified any adult would watch this thing but I sat through an episode and started picking up on the satire and inside jokes. A few more episodes in and I was a fan. It's funny, honest! -- Submitted By: (spacer) on September 3, 2015, 4:39 pm
