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.

Bates Motel - TV Shows
Oedipus Rex meets Alfred Hitchcock. Seriously, young Norman Bates is in love and in lust with his mother, and she encourages him. This odd couple is so obvious about their feelings for each other that Norman's half-brother Dylan calls them Mr. and Mrs. Bates. Great show with a great cast. Freddie Highmore nails it as the strange, brooding, psychotic teen and Vera Farmiga is awesome as the sexy, slutty, manipulative momzilla. Norman comes off as a sweet, shy and awkward kid but has a disturbing habit of blacking out. Whenever that happens, someone nearby usually turns up dead. In an early episode we see him in one of these fugue states when he tries to murder Dylan by bashing his head in with a meat mallet. In a flashback, we watched as he crushed his step-father's skull with a blender. We also watched in horror as his sexy teacher seduced him, knowing she would end up very dead, which she did and our boy Norman lost all memory of the evening. Great show and well worth watching! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 11, 2014, 2:40 pm

Middle, The - TV Shows
Unlike a lot of family sitcoms, the parents are the backbone of this show. Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn have amazing on-screen chemistry and are completely believable as a working class couple struggling to keep things together, both financially and emotionally. They hate their kids sometimes but always look out for their interests even if it means being yelled at by ungrateful brats. The young actors playing the kids are amazing and bring to life weird and often unlikeable characters. Axl, for instance, refused to wear pants for the first two seasons and came to the dinner table (and TV, and game night, and entertaining visitors) in only his jockey shorts. Sue is so needy and whiney you want to run away as soon as you see her. Brick is completely neurotic and is plagued by nervous tics and has been banished to a class for socially impaired kids. Put all of this together and you get a great show. The Heck's don't live in a nice home, they live in a dump, mom and dad work at low paying jobs they hate, and the kids are all seriously flawed. It's a nice slice of life and show how millions of Americans really live. It's also very funny! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 11, 2014, 2:26 pm

X-Play - TV Shows
No comments from the fan boys? This was once a cool show. Back when Morgan and Adam actually looked like they were enjoying reviewing video games and clowning around. Then it got too serious and dull. Morgan was cute nerd eye candy, but she did not take advantage of that and went into obscurity. The show's network was removed from directv early on, so I missed the final few years. Couldn't get my Morgan fix, so I moved on, and so did everyone else apparently. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on April 9, 2014, 3:11 pm

How I Met Your Mother - TV Shows
So the final season takes 21 episodes to show us a Robin Barney wedding weekend, where we see the "mother" for about 15 minutes total, and nothing happens in most episodes. The hour finale has them divorced in 10 minutes, Barney is just the same old dope he has always been, Ted's new love of his life just dies offscreen, and they reveal that he is telling his kids this story to get their permission to bang, er date, Aunt Robin, then like a stalker he goes to her apartment with a blue trombone. Get out the fillet knives, this one makes the end of the Sopranos seem like a masterpiece. And Barney has a baby with a woman that they dont ever show, and now he cares, about people. BONED. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on March 31, 2014, 10:45 pm

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo - TV Shows
The King of Crap TV Shows! Or maybe The Queen? It seems the reality TV show industry has settled on this formula: find the most ignorant, loathsome unwashed disgusting filthy in-bred idiots and let them embarrass themselves and by extension, the entire human race. Also in this category: Duck Dynasty, Swamp People, Ax Men, Gator Boys, Game of Arms, Dog the Bounty Hunter, and Storage Wars. There are many others out there. It seems Boo-Boo and her ilk celebrate ignorance. The kids are being raised to be anti-intellectual slobs who think they are fat because of the devil, rather than the 10 million or so calories each one pushes down their bloated throats every day. I don't think anyone in Clan Boo-Boo had ever picked up a book, let alone read one. They speak about Wal-Mart in hushed, reverend terms, like it is a holy place, and spend their "TV Money" on utter crap rather than improving the lives of their children. Will Honey Boo-Boo still be adorable when she is a 700-pound pregnant teenager? -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on March 31, 2014, 12:58 pm

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey - TV Shows
Dr. Sagan would most definitely approve of this show because it: 1)Promotes human curiosity 2)Explains some of the wonders around us in everyday language WITHOUT dumbing down the science and 3)Does not flinch away from calling out superstition and ignorance as abominations promoted by idiots to further their own agendas. On that last point, I was intrigued by episode 2 when it started moving in the direction of evolution. Dr. Tyson steps on camera and I thought here comes the 'intelligent design' cop-out or the 'everyone is entitled to their own stupid beliefs' speech but NO! He defended evolution not as a theory but as a flat hard fact and denounced religious leaders who purposefully lie to their kids about it. Go Neil! This show absolutely remains true to Sagan's original concept. It has a different look and feel to it at times but the times have changed since 1980. Dr. Tyson told the story in the first episode of how Carl Sagan, who was already a rock-star scientist and professor, befriended this poor black kid from Brooklyn named Neil Tyson and sparked his scientific curiosity and his love of learning. Hopefully, Dr. Tyson will be able to inspire some of today's kids to pursue science. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on March 31, 2014, 12:33 pm

Vikings - TV Shows
Ok, weird premise: one of history's most notorious bands of horrid, murderous, thieving thugs, portrayed as a tight-knit group who love each other and only want the best for their kids! It seems the producers are saying hey! these guys are just like us! Except my family and I don't murder innocent people and steal from their dead, butchered corpses. The acting, writing, direction, and photography are all well above average and you can get easily sucked into the world of Ragnar and his associates. They can be really sweet characters for a few episodes and then they cut the throats of innocents because they want their gold. The Season 1 raid on the English church and monastery was particularly brutal. The Vikings went out of their way to terrify the monks and priests and desecrate their church before hacking them to death with axes and looting all their valuables. I got the same uneasy feeling watching The Vikings as I did watching The Sopranos. I realized that I was actually rooting for Tony and liked him even though he was a stone cold killer. Ragnar is depicted as such a charmer everyone likes him and tends to forgive his quirks (like murder and thievery). All in all it is a good show and the acting is excellent. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on March 31, 2014, 12:18 pm

Celebrity Rehab - TV Shows
Dr. Drew probably regrets coming up with this show now that he has five celebrity patients/contestants from his show that are now corpses because his treatment didn't work.

It boned for me when I saw Pikachu defeat an Onix. Try playing the game and see if that logic works.

Mega Man (TV series) - TV Shows

Transformers: Prime - TV Shows
I actually like the look and feel of this show. Frank Welker returning as Megatron, finally, was a plus. In fact, he changed the voice of Megatron so it's completely different from his G1 counterpart. Which actually worked and is fine in my book. Only nitpicks I have is, they made Optimus Prime's mouth look ugly. Everytime he's seen with that mouth, he's just a little hard to take seriously or even know if it's him. The other, is that the human characters are seriously stereotypical and intolerable in everyway. They're all one-dimensional. Other than all of that, it's good. Oh, why kill Cliffjumper so early?! -- Submitted By: () on March 23, 2014, 1:11 am

Beast Machines - TV Shows
Just terrible. This is the show that killed the classic Transformers timeline that had begun in the 1980s. Hideous character designs and saddled with a clueless limousine liberal hippie showrunner that forced his dumb politics onto this show. Ecological "green" themes on a show set on the mechanical world of Cybertron, refusal to give the heroes guns due to his anti-gun stance, and of course making the character Rattrap wheelchair-bound to promote diversity were a few of his bone-headed moves. The characters had to meditate and say, "I am transformed" in order to transform. I am not joking. I gave up after only a few episodes. I'm told the finale has Cybertron transformed into a lush, green planet like Earth, thus ruining any future stories in that continuity and the need for all the reboots. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 17, 2014, 10:13 pm

Mystery Diners - TV Shows
This is a show that is supposed to be a hidden camera type of reality show. That main Stiles guy brings in his cameras and his repetitive comments to the clueless owners. The owners, the mystery diners, even the employees caught on camera look like they have been rehearsing for this. Most of employees who are busted and have to come into the camera room at the end do a bad job of being surprised that they have been caught. This show is lame. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on March 1, 2014, 1:46 pm

Batman: The Brave and the Bold - TV Shows
So I've watched the whole series in its entirety now. A lot of the things I complained about in those early episodes were fixed or cleared up in the subsequent ones. Contrary to popular belief, the show wasn't always campy. It could be light, dark, funny, drama, a musical, etc. I'd highly recommend it. But everyone on Bone The Fish needs to see the final episode, Mitefall! It's a brilliant meta-humor episode. Batman jumps a shark with the Batski. This pisses Bat-Mite off; he wants a darker Batman TV show again. Bat-Mite tries to get Batman The Brave and the Bold canceled and does all these horrible things to the show like move Batman to Malibu and marry him off and give him a kid. Then he recasts Aquaman with Ted McGinley. Ambush Bug (voiced by Henry Winkler) sees what Bat-Mite is doing and enters Batman's world to try and help him. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on February 26, 2014, 11:27 am

This was actually a pretty funny and clever show for something called The Man Show. Kimmel and Carolla had good chemistry, and some of the bits were hilarious.

This cartoon is infamous (and was cancelled after only 7 episodes), so I decided to watch some of the episodes online to see how bad it was.

The show was certainly not the same when Lowell left. He was by far my favorite character. He always made me laugh, his ridiculous sayings and his facial expressions.

Saturday Night Live - TV Shows
This show has never boned. I will be surprised if it ever will. My parents said SNL would die after Belushi left. Then Eddie Murphy led a revival. After he left my older cousins said the show was a goner. Then Dana Carvey came and people were talking again. Soon the bad boys came (Sandler, Farley, Spade, etc) and people loved it. Critics said SNL was over after they left. Then Ferrel, Fey and Shannon came and people loved it again. Once again, the end was proclaimed when they left. Guess what, everyone said this show would not survive. Here it remains, and once again new actors come and they are great in their own ways. We all have our favorite era of SNL. New viewers will enjoy, but those of us loyal fans who have watched for so long, will continue to do so. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on February 22, 2014, 1:15 pm

Restaurant Stakeout - TV Shows
I enjoy watching the caught-on-camera shenanigans with nasty servers or cooks or managers, but this show is quickly wearing out its welcome. Willie is seriously arrogant, and his comments are repetitive and annoying. It's amazing his expertise, and two minute training sessions with each staff member end up making the failing restaurant succeed every time. At least with a show like Kitchen Nightmares, the restaurant does not always succeed. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on February 22, 2014, 12:52 pm

Still Standing - TV Shows
I didn't catch this show during it's original run, which is a shame really. I got the reruns, and it actually was a decent show. That father was often too overbearing, but I started enjoying the chemistry between the family.

The more I watched this show the hotter she became! -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on February 22, 2014, 12:41 pm

ALF - TV Shows
Re-watching quite a few episodes of the show, I would say the boning point was towards the end of the Forth Season. By that point, it was becoming obvious that the cast was growing weary of doing the show in the form of not only their attitude towards Alf but in Alf's behaviour. Towards the end, Alf was starting to get far more annoying and even Brian seemed sick of him. An example from very late in the Series run is a Forth Season episode where Lynn is thinking of move out and Alf is harassing her to do so because he wants her room. Given what the cast has since said about how stressful the show was to be a part of, both the level of annoyance the characters displayed towards Alf and his attitude feel like a sad indicator of just how tried everyone must have been of the doing the show. Another example is another Forth Season episode where Alf runs away and ends up with Neil. Alf's behaviour at Neil's place is so bad that it's to the point of being malevolent and painful to watch. Willie, upon finding out about it, behaves as though this is all perfectly normal for Alf. I still do have plenty of good memories of this show. However, I do have to sadly admit that the forth season was the point where it was time to say goodbye and move on. -- Submitted By: () on February 20, 2014, 2:56 pm

Anyone here recall the scene in "Blazing Saddles" in which this tough hombre punched out a HORSE?

Dragon Ball GT - TV Shows
GT looked and felt like a very bad fan fic that somehow got greenlit. SSJ4? Really? Kid Goku again, really? Black Dragon Balls now, really? Again, the characters who survived DBZ are so downplayed it isn't even funny. I think the dumbest part that came out of this, to me, was how all the villains somehow got out. So we saw Nappa return for like 10 seconds before being blown away like nothing by Vegeta. No lines, nothing of use from him. Just a "heh" and he destroys a surrounding area before growling at Vegeta? What about Cell and Frieza? What part did they play other than to stall the series and give nods like "oh yeah, wonder how they'll fare against the very powerful characters now!" When you obviously know there is no absolute way they could stand a chance. There were just so many red flags thrown at this series and you know, after everyone just got done with what DB and DBZ had. We've pretty much moved on immediately. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on February 13, 2014, 4:02 am

Saved by the Bell - TV Shows
This show was cheesy and silly. I find it hard to believe that these six people ran the school. How the hell could dumbass Zack be part of the Glee Club, Student Council, Yearbook, ROTC, etc. You have to have a certain grade point average and all Zack made were D's and F's. Guess that school had no standards. Mr. Belding was like a pedophile cause he always found a way to hang around that gang even going as far as coming over to Zack's house with pizza and calling the smart kids nerds and geeks. Screech was a stalker who Lisa should have filed a restraining order on.

This is a nice wholesome show on PBS that aired circa 2003. It was neither over the top nor overly politically correct, unlike "Arthur" which boned the fish before this show aired. Some episodes are taken from the books, whereas others are completely new. Fortunately, you can watch a lot of its 13 minute long episodes on Youtube. Note: This 2003 show does not have ties nor affiliation with the Berenstain Bears cartoon that aired in 1985. Simply watching this show brings me back to 2003, in a good way, of course! Parents, if you are looking for a nice wholesome yet entertaining show, please watch this and NOT Caillou the whiny brat! -- Submitted By: (RockinReed) on February 7, 2014, 2:10 pm

Caillou - TV Shows
The problem that people don't seem to be seeing is that this show is supposed to be for parents. "Caillou" is a very thinly veiled attempt to subvert parental authority, and "teach" parents how to behave. Unfortunately, this is exactly how parents should *not* be behaving. In life, there are rules, and we have reasons for them. Kids need to learn the rules, and they become good people by learning what is right and what is wrong. They learn to be polite by seeing other people being polite and also from parents making them be polite. They don't learn manners from whiney, noisy brats, nor from parents who have patience with temper tantrums every two seconds. Caillou is "training" some parents already, as I have seen from some other reviews. Here's a hint: if your kid hits his sister, a patient explanation of why that is wrong is not in order. They already know it is wrong. I hope PBS takes this show off the air and burns the master reels. -- Submitted By: (RockinReed) on February 5, 2014, 11:43 pm

Let's get real here. This show boned years ago, I'd say just over a decade ago. I didn't get to watch this show when it first came out. We were not high tech enough to get the new channel FOX out in the sticks. I started watching it maybe two years later. Thought it was the funniest, most clever show I had ever seen. It was packed full of clever sight gags, the characters were likeable, and the writing was so sharp. There was not an exact moment this show boned. It was a long, slow-burning bone.

This show boned from day one. Everything is a scripted joke. The miners make more money off being part of the show then they do mining gold. lol -- Submitted By: (Hikariu) on January 30, 2014, 11:23 am

Law and Order SVU - TV Shows
Dale Stuckey. I don't know what they were thinking when they brought this character and his story into the mix. Once I see his stupid face, I have to change the channel. Were they trying to ride the Dexter wave of creeps in crime scene investigation? I don't understand. -- Submitted By: (boltholt) on January 26, 2014, 6:32 pm

Three's Company - TV Shows
I loved this show from the start. I don't see how there are so many votes saying the show boned when Chrissy left. I was GLAD when she left. She was annoying. I thought Terri was awesome, and the show was even better with her. Rest in peace Jack Tripper. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 5:12 pm

We Got It Made - TV Shows
This was a great show for a kid growing up. That Terri was a serious looker. Had a bit of a Marylin Monroe thing going on. I had a huge crush on her. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 5:09 pm

Highway to Heaven - TV Shows
Oh I remember this show! My mother loved it. It was so pious I had blood coming from my wrists and feet. I was not a fan, this was all too cheesy for my taste. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 5:07 pm

Futurama - TV Shows
Loved the original run of this show. It is classic, with funny writing, great character chemistry and inventive plots. But I have to agree with (). The movies were disappointingly unfunny, and the new episodes have lacked the humor and heart of the first go. It just seems forced, the humor and writing are not on par. I have watched entire episodes and maybe smirked twice. Not good. Now that this show has been cancelled by Comedy Central, I am sad to say that I am not upset, but relieved. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 5:04 pm

8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter - TV Shows
I caught this show later, and it did grow on me. Jack Tripper and Peg Bundy were great together. The kids were all pretty good, and the writing was just starting to take off until the horrible tragedy. I liked that Kerry Hennessy, she was hot. Never thought Bridget was all that hot, though. Still don't see what all the fuss is about her on her current show. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:54 pm

Beetlejuice - TV Shows
This became a favorite cartoon for my little sister and me growing up. In this cartoon, Lydia and Beetlejuice were friends and they went along on many zany adventures, many quite creative. Whenever Lydia got into serious trouble, of course she called her friend's name three times, and Beetlejuice would turn into some spectacular creature and save the (after) world. I had a serious crush of Lydia, in the movie and cartoon! -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:43 pm

Tales from the Darkside - TV Shows
I loved this show growing up. It always spooked me out. That intro was creepy as well. The stories were not always winners, but I watched it every time it came on. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:38 pm

Life After People - TV Shows
This is a fun show to watch. I like see what the earth would become if all people vanished. It is very interesting, I don't know why more people didn't watch this. Because it's not a "reality" show I guess. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:36 pm

Jamie Kennedy Experiment, The - TV Shows
I remember getting some laughs from this hidden camera show. Jaime was pretty good in it. I don't know what happened to this guy. Maybe Son of the Mask took his soul? -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:35 pm

Jake and the Fatman - TV Shows
I remember catching a few episodes back in the day because back then we did not have cable tv, and there was not much to see. Anyways, it was pretty standard legal drama with some rotund dude, and one of the guys from Riptide. I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:33 pm

Golden Girls, The - TV Shows
This is one of my favorite shows of all time. It is total comfort television. I was fortune to watch this show when it first came out, and loved it from the start. My mother didn't like it. It was too racy for her. Four grannies living together, loving, laughing, and of course cheese case galore. This show is a classic. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:26 pm

Modern Family - TV Shows
I am a late comer to this show. Just started watching it, and I have to admit, I am hooked. This is one fantastic cast, and the humor has me often rolling. I have been catching the reruns on USA, and it's great. Unlike most people here, I like everyone in it. Everyone has their own thing, their own way of thinking, their own way of dealing with situations. It is not always realistic, but it doesn't have to be, this is fun TV, that often tugs at my heart strings. A+ -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:21 pm

Just Shoot Me - TV Shows
I liked this show. The cast was great together. It was great to see Laura's assets every week. She was so adorable. Wendy Malick was awesome as the smarmy ex-model, as well as that weasel David Spade. It worked well for me, I didn't miss an episode for several seasons. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:17 pm

Frontline (PBS) - TV Shows
This is great, very informative show that spans a huge array of topics from politics to rural country life. How am I the first to comment on this long-running show? No one likes educational programing. Jessica Savitch first hosted. Remember her? The rising news anchor whose life was cut short. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:15 pm

Step By Step - TV Shows
This was definitely my least favorite TGIF show. The comedy was very standard, with by-the-numbers acting by some television veterans. I did like Staci, though. Liked her from My Two Dads. I always had a crush on her for some reason. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:07 pm

Murphy Brown - TV Shows
This was a great show when it first came out. For a couple of years it had a great combination of humor and politics. The running gag with Murphy's secretary always cracked me up. I liked the initial relationship between Miles and Murphy, of the so-called boss and head-strong head reporter. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 4:01 pm

227 - TV Shows
I recall watching this show. It had the maid from the Jeffersons as the lead. But after a while Jackee started stealing the show. It was not that great a show. I remember a promo with the lame rap "227 is a comedy...with Marla Gibbs are her family..." -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 26, 2014, 3:58 pm

Space Cats - TV Shows
There's just something appealing about this show. Don't know what it is. When she was a kitten, my Maine Coon came running when we used the signature yell - "AH-AH-AH-AH-AH-HA! SPACE CATS!" -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on January 24, 2014, 11:41 am

WWE Friday Night Smackdown - TV Shows
There was a time where some of us have our phases where we liked WWE/WWF. Not all of us, but some of us. I know I did, where I didn't bother looking to see if it was fake or not. I stopped entirely around 2006-ish and only time I'm ever bothered to watch it again is when I'm invited to PPV/Wrestlemania parties. Other than that, it's dead to me now regardless of what era it's in. I can't believe what I used to like. I mean the video games based on this stuff was ten times more fun than the actual show itself. What they're airing now though. I mean...my god. Can they ever look more pretentious and fake than times before? It's an embarrassment. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on January 23, 2014, 11:31 pm

Deadliest Catch - TV Shows
Has there been anything fun on the show since Phil Harris's death? Sad to say,IMO he was really the only reason to keep watching otherwise it was just ice,storms and arguments. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 23, 2014, 10:12 am

Monk - TV Shows
I enjoyed Monk, with or without Sharona. It was a clever, entertaining show. The main characters we're terrific, worked off each other real well, even Natalie. I do think the ending was a let down but very few shows have been able to pull off great endings. Also, I think Dale the Whale should have been involved in the last season to some degree. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on January 21, 2014, 10:22 pm

Prevue Channel - TV Shows
I used to watch this channel more than any other when I was in high school, mainly for the music that was played during the ads/segments that got axed when it became "The TV Guide Channel" The music was very catchy and I am not ashamed to admit that I would grab a VHS tape and record it whenever it aired. I still have said tapes to this very day! Of course, they had those silly infomercials that I wonder exactly how many people actually fell for them! I liked the "Trivia" and "Family Vue" segments, and also the "Intervue" segment hosted by Jim Ferguson where he would interview some celeb. In 1998, they changed the format making it more fast paced and MTV-like. During that time, they gained a new logo and axed the aforementioned segments. However, TV Guide killed it in 1999! In a nutshell, I am one of the people who enjoys the simple pleasures in life and I miss this channel. P.S. Does anyone know what became of the aforementioned Jim Ferguson? -- Submitted By: () on January 19, 2014, 9:56 pm

Grace Under Fire - TV Shows
I really enjoyed and enjoy this show. It started boning the fish when it became apparent that Brett let her addictions get the best of her. Towards the end of season 4 and into season 5, you can tell in some episodes she seems strung out. It's sad that the show was cancelled because it really was a good comedy with some drama about hard topics that other sitcoms didn't want to talk about. -- Submitted By: (covingtonlane) on January 16, 2014, 4:13 pm

Full House - TV Shows
I used to like this show when I was younger. It was supposed to be like "Three Men and a Baby" when it started, but once Michelle could walk and talk, it became all about her. The show was just so overly cheesy and annoying. -- Submitted By: (covingtonlane) on January 16, 2014, 4:02 pm

Bill Engvall Show, The - TV Shows
I think this show was mostly just to boost Bill Engvall's career. It wasn't an awful show, but it definitely wasn't a great show. I like comedy with some drama, and this show didn't feel fresh to me. It's interesting how Jennifer Lawrence was on this before all "The Hunger Games" fame. I think this show was further proof that male comedians don't make great sitcom actors. -- Submitted By: (covingtonlane) on January 16, 2014, 3:52 pm

Listen Up! - TV Shows
I started watching this show on youtube mainly because Will Rothhaar is my favorite actor, and I wanted to see his earlier work. I thought the show was okay, but I hated the pilot. As I continued watching the show, it grew on me. Yes, it was the typical family comedy, but I think Jason Alexander and Malcolm-Jamal Warner surprisingly had great chemistry together. They are both really good actors. I agree with the previous poster about how the kids acted. Will's character Mickey was the typical slacker, and Daniela Monet's character, Megan, was just a bitch. It didn't help how the mom always took Megan's side when she was being really disrespectful, but the one time Mickey shows some attitude, she went almost homicidal on him. I could kind of see why the show only lasted one season. -- Submitted By: (covingtonlane) on January 16, 2014, 3:46 pm

American Dreams - TV Shows
I loved this show, and never fully understood why it was cancelled. I guess NBC wanted a younger audience to watch this, but the baby boomers stayed tuned. One thing that bothered me was that the music timeline was all over the place, and I even heard Dick Clark and Jonathan Prince didn't really care to be accurate. I read that in an article, and I found it really baffling. I watched this show just to see Duncan Sheik play Bobby Darin 5 years ago on youtube, but I re-watched it last year and fell in love with the characters, the stories, the music and the decade. I have read people say numerous times that "The Wonder Years" was better. I think people just like it more because TWY was more promoted and publicized compared to "American Dreams," it went into reruns and was a coming of age story. I would love for "American Dreams" to come back at least in reruns. -- Submitted By: (covingtonlane) on January 16, 2014, 3:22 pm

Popeye and Son - TV Shows
Boned all of the fish that swam under Popeye's trusty old schooner faster than Bluto could catch them. The reason was the same as an earlier 1970s one also by Hanna-Barbera Productions-though Broadcast Standards and Practices are to REALLY blame--no violence, no tough-guy-talkin' sailor, no nothin'. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on January 16, 2014, 9:17 am

My Name is Earl - TV Shows
I refused to watch this show because the trailers made it seem like a bunch of white trash morons running around aimlessly. Then I actually watched an episode and fell in love with it! Earl and his extended family (his brother, his ex-wife, crab man) were all very funny and played by excellent actors. I loved the premise, that a no-good petty thief could actually turn his life around and do good in an effort to pay his karma-debt. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on January 13, 2014, 9:52 am

Eerie, Indiana - TV Shows
This was a great show and it deserved better than to be jerked around by the network and cancelled after a single season. Omri Katz as Marshall was perfectly cast, he could make you believe he was a normal kid caught up in some seriously weird stuff. The "bad" characters turned out to be misunderstood and actually nice people, like Dash-X, who seemed to be just plain evil until Marshall got to know him and discovered he was just a kid in a lot of emotional pain. The final episode was brilliant and showed the characters reaction to the show being cancelled and their reality being dismantled piece by piece. It was a show within a show within a show. Truly remarkable TV! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on January 13, 2014, 9:06 am

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman - TV Shows
The show was hamstrung towards later half of its run because they had to time the wedding of Lois and Clark to its massively hyped comic book equivalent. They had a wonderful wedding episode, where, through a set of circumstances, Perry White ended up as the minister performing the ceremony. This warm moment was immediately undercut by the revelation that the bride was not Lois at all, but a frog eating clone. When they got around to the "real" wedding, it was performed by an angel in what seemed to be a dream sequence. I was waiting for them to pull the "just kidding" card again, but no, this anticlimax was the actual wedding! -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on January 12, 2014, 3:09 pm

Hilarious House of Frightenstein, The - TV Shows
Parker, I wasn't aware that this ever aired in the US at all! I saw it because I live about two miles outside Canada! This brings back many memories of my misspent youth. Last time I saw it was in a hotel room in Toronto about 10 years ago. My son, who was about 9 years old, stared at it in a mixture of interest and utter disbelief! As a "monster kid", I just loved it. During the 70's, Billy Van, who played about 90% of the characters, was a regular on a number of variety shows in the US, and whenever he'd show up, I'd see Count Frightenstein! -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on January 6, 2014, 11:47 am

This show didn't bone the fish... far from it... rather, it's just one big block of stinky cheese, as in this show is so friggin' cheesy and stupid. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on January 5, 2014, 2:46 pm

Chuck - TV Shows
The only drawback to this show was that Chuck would retreat into wimpiness too quickly on his missions. Otherwise it had an excellent cast, deft writing, dynamite sound track, and always stayed clever. This show was not madcap comedy ala Get Smart, and it wasn't typically LOL-funny, but instead it was "satisfying-grin-inducing". The characters, given the premise, were all believable, and the audience could care about them. For contrast, think of Star Trek's Commander Riker- no way could that bland, uninteresting, mess-of-a-character EVER be an officer in ANY organization in the galaxy. On the other hand; Casey, Walker, Big Mike, Morgan, Devon & Ellie, all perfectly delivered by their actors. The show was not so much about a goofy nerd on spy missions, it was really about relationships and their trials: trust, sacrifice, open communications, empathy... every episode had at least one relationship epiphany that would leave the viewer misty-eyed. Everyone involved with this show should be very proud of their work. Best closing episode of any series EVER. -- Submitted By: (chuckFan) on January 4, 2014, 11:21 pm

Eerie, Indiana - TV Shows
This was a great, original, tragically-cancelled-too-soon show I quickly got into back in the day. Young Marshall was the kid who moves to this crazy place that has all sorts of bizarre goings on. The one episode where him and his friend fall for the new girl in town who has a heart problem, and the ensuing tragedy that lets her live still haunts me to this day. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 4, 2014, 7:23 pm

Adventures of Pete & Pete, The - TV Shows
Have to agree with (). This was one of the best "children" shows. I was a teen when I first caught this show, and I was pulled in by its odd but entertaining charm. It was original and often moving. It definitely was not a typical show. It really did have some great music as well. Nickelodeon sure was producing some fine programming in the 1990s. Can't say the same for Disney channel, ever. They are still churning out garbage. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on January 4, 2014, 7:11 pm

CHiPs - TV Shows
Never actually saw an episode of this show, but I'd like to see an explanation for the promo where they arrest HR Pufnstuf. The snarky jokes do kinda write themselves. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on January 2, 2014, 7:51 pm

Dragons: Riders of Berk - TV Shows
More than any other movie spinoff series, this one works to keep the flavor of the original. Yes, there's the occasional puke, poop or pee joke, but the heart of the show is the beautiful friendship of Hiccup and Toothless, both now crippled and somewhat dependent upon each other to feel "complete." It's also good to see much of the movie cast returning. Even now-hot David Tennant stops in occasionally to voice Spritelout. While it would be a lot to expect the depths of characterization that marked the feature, this is about as close as you can come in 25 minute blocks! -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on January 2, 2014, 7:48 pm

Little House on the Prairie - TV Shows
I enjoyed this show as a child, until around the fifth season, when the Ingalls family started adopting children. I thought this was supposed to be based on the life of the real Ingalls family? When they started adding fictional children, the show started to suck. -- Submitted By: (Retroguy2000) on January 2, 2014, 4:07 pm

David Cassidy: Man Under Cover - TV Shows
Such a silly idea! If they even had any delusions that this was anything other than garbage, this would have been called just "Man Under Cover" or the CHARACTER NAME: Man Under cover. Remember the gag on SNL where the show was rebooted as Donny Osmond: Man Under Cover? Kinda says it all, doesn't it? -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on January 1, 2014, 11:43 am

Growing Pains - TV Shows
This show 'boned the fish' when backstage politics killed the Mike/Julie romance. Kirk Cameron became a born-again Christian and had the actress who played Julie fired from the show. Although the show had some funny moments in later seasons, it never fully recovered from Kirk Cameron's dirty politics, and his overbearing belief system left a visible stain on the show. -- Submitted By: (Retroguy2000) on December 30, 2013, 8:58 pm
