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.

Red Band Society - TV Shows
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. It might as well have changed its name to 9021-O.R. at that point. -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on November 21, 2015, 8:42 pm

S#*! My Dad Says - TV Shows
Two things I would have loved about the show: First, I would have incorporated more of the hilarious tweets that made Justin Halpern and his dad so popular in the first place. Second, I would have cast either Christopher Lloyd or Harvey Keitel as the father. When I read those tweets, I imagined Lloyd or Keitel, not Shatner. Third, I wanted more of the father railing about the mess-ups of the Baby Boom and subsequent generations, especially those of his son (similar to how Archie Bunker would rail about changes in society in the 1970s on All in the Family). -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on November 10, 2015, 11:13 am

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

Night Court - TV Shows
Night Court may be that rare example of a reverse bone--IMHO it got better after Markie Post joined the cast in season 3. The chemistry between her and John Larroquette was awesome. The change at court clerk from Karen Austin to Max Robinson in season 2 was also an improvement. This show did not skip a beat despite the deaths of Selma Diamond and Florence Halop--Marsha Warfield filled her own shoes very well, thank you. -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on November 10, 2015, 10:34 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

Are You Being Served? Again!/Grace & Favour - TV Shows
The ONLY reason I spent any time looking at this show was to see Fleur Bennett. She was irresistibly cute in a girl next door sort of way.

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

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

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.

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

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.

Sort of a live action Underdog with a half-witted and inept super hero but who is still lovable and manages to do the right thing almost every time.

Gumby - TV Shows
Gumby (and I am the one that submitted this) boned in 1984-88 when Clokey made those new episodes, re-scored due to payment issues over the stock cues (even though for about ANOTHER DECADE or so they were still available, scale price and stuff notwithstanding). In addition to this: 1) music replaced not even by similiar music or such used on the new episodes but replaced by baby like synth music 2) HORRIBLE, slicked up designs for Pokey (my namesake.) and redseign of Gumby and Goo, unneccesary character additions (and the 1992 movie, released a few years later, only made this worse) Some may say that the 1967 addition of the "nope" Nopey a "Cousin Oliver" type character. Others may say it for Professor Kapp, Prickle dinosaur (whose appearance in the earlier 80s merchandising, predating the abovementioned soundtrack redo, MUST Have reflected the new dinosaur craze!) and little blue Goo, that these wrecked the series way back in 1966. I actually like these... Gumby's eyes changing in 1957 to the flat ones was the big change, though Gumby and Pokey had some recasting (Art Clokey thru 1957, then 1962-68 Dal McKennon), and Gumby had LOTS of Same Character, Different actor case (from the old Scottish Site, Jump the Shark's vernacular).-McKennon was one who played Gumby in 1962-66 then Norma MacMillan, whose daughter is ALLISON ARNGRIN, b----ch Nellie Olsen from Little House...so not just Nellie but her actress's mom did something mean, Norma MacMillan in this case, in replacing someone as Gumby (Just joking about Ms.MacMillian being "mean). For some reason, the second version in 1960-62 didn't have the villainous Blockheads (aptly named and with right head shapes with G on one "block"-head, and J on the other, neither talking) but in 1967 they returned.. Anyway, I widely preferred the original to the later ones...made in 1987-92.. (the following from the old "Scottish Site" with my comments added) (quote) Remember when Gumby's voice was "girlishly high"...(of the remake) when Gumby was a "teen"..in a squeaky-clean format (unqote here) Gumby as a "teen" started in 1961 to take hold ("Hot rod Granny", right down to the "groovy" stock music which was unqiue to this episode), and the format always applied....so it's kind of redundant.. (quote) Remember those early episodes? (unquote here) Absoulely I do..and I did put information like the music and some other things in the old Jump the shark entry for this.. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on August 16, 2015, 2:41 pm

What's New, Scooby Doo? - TV Shows
Not really into Scooby-Doo, (outside season 1, maybe..) but I loved late 50s-1960s Hanna-Barbera, and like anyone else's shows, theatrical short cartoons, or movies, there were recoginzable, and, yes, BELOVED, trademarks, including soundtrack. One of the most recognisable and distinctive things about Hanna-Barbera, just like MGM, WB (their current parent!), Disney, etc. is the underscore background music, regardless who did it, but by the early 1980s it was totally shot (their original composers alone had largely included since 1961 when they went-all original had been Hoyt Curtin, and when SD premiered in Sept.1969, Ted Nichols and Marty Paitch (musical director for everyone from Toto to Babs Streisand!!!!!) did music,too.. But when the 1980s, and 90s in particular came by, the background music had been shot to hell largely. By the time the 1994 Arabian Knights Scooby (don't ask!) came by, LOONEY TUNES style music, and the big noisy "Animanaics/Tiny Toon Adventures" type, had came by, then that and the metal rock music occured here, as some have said (I personally myself have not watched these..see, the first five words of this comment...) then the sound effects had been changed (I DID hear enough of TAHT few times that I saw this..) And popular alternative band Simple Plan?????? -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on August 11, 2015, 11:50 pm

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Special - TV Shows
I've long suspected that Shanequia wasn't actually a black woman at all, and just used the whole posting in ebonics thing as a gimmick to get noticed. And it sure did work.

Swan, The - TV Shows
One of the most psychotic wrong minded shows I've ever seen on network TV but I did tune in every week. Baiting low self esteem women into getting plastic surgery then having a beauty contest to determine the winner is truly evil but I never missed the show. Says something about human nature. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 23, 2015, 7:15 am

Sarah Palin's Alaska - TV Shows
I used to never miss this show since it was so unfathomably bad and wrong that it was hard for me to avert my eyes, like a show from an alternate reality where being a closedminded bigoted psycho was normal human behavior. I suspect the show did well because there were other normal decent people like me dumbfounded by the evil and stupidity this show pushed and were unable to tune out. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 23, 2015, 6:31 am

S#*! My Dad Says - TV Shows
Just a poorly made idiotic show. The writing was terrible and Bill Shatner was a poor casting choice. He's perfect in the role of a starship captain or an arrogant blowhard like Denny Crane on Boston Legal but playing a grumpy old conservative who sits on the couch all day is out of his range. He's known for being much more youthful than his years so he is a poor pick to play an old curmudgeon. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 23, 2015, 6:25 am

In Living Color - TV Shows
The show really tanked when Jim Carrey left. Keenan leaving hurt the show but Jim leaving with others left a new unfunny cast to fend for themselves. This was definitely one of the best sketch comedy shows of all time since David Alan Grier, Damon Wayans, Kim Wayans and Tommy Davidson were incredible but it did sour toward the end. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 23, 2015, 6:20 am

I Love Lucy - TV Shows
Moving to Connecticut killed the show. Does anyone consider any of the Connecticut episodes among their favorites? Hallmark TV reruns the show and thankfully never shows those. I think Desi and Lucy's disintegrating marriage took a toll on the show and the writing definitely wasn't as sharp. They completely stopped doing episodes where Lucy tries to get into Ricky's shows thru psychotic means. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 23, 2015, 6:15 am

Garfield and Friends - TV Shows
Great cartoon that never went bad. It was one of the longest running Saturday morning cartoons ever yet they kept it fresh. The US Acres cartoons were hit and miss but I enjoyed pretty much every one of the Garfield segments. The show was quite a bit better than the comic strip since Mark Evanier wrote most episodes, he is a famous humorous comic writer best known for Groo with Sergio Aragones. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 23, 2015, 6:10 am

Growing Pains - TV Shows
Kirk Cameron is such a punk and he destroyed the show. He played a Ferris Bueller type who was pretty funny and got viewers in but started to throw his weight around when he became a God-boy and demanded his character Mike do nothing un-Christian. Probably the only Bone the Fish moment that came from an actor converting to religion as far as i know. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 23, 2015, 6:01 am

Game, The - TV Shows
Talk about a great show gone bad. I was really excited when The Game came back on the air on BET and it had the highest rated show BET ever had but it really went downhill. They moved to a more cinematic camera rather than the 3 camera sitcom format and it became too dramatic. It was too dark with Malik's drug addiction. I also hated how they wrote out Kelly, possibly because having a white person on BET didn't fit the format; I remember they had the whole cast do a promo thing on 106 & Park and everyone was there but the actress who played Kelly. They also cut Jason's time down significantly as the actor Coby Bell was on Burn Notice at that time, he was the best character. I ended up wishing they never brought it back. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 23, 2015, 5:56 am

My Wife and Kids - TV Shows
Just a bad show. Damon is annoying as a generally mean spirited dad with an annoying bully of a wife. Even the title is unbelievably generic.

My Three Sons - TV Shows
"Uncle CHarley wiping wrong end of Dodie" Uncle Charley and the in-laws should, as additions and replacements, be cited as shark jumpers, or fish boning categories...though it only started boning in late 60s right before Dodie. (PS I REALLY laugh at how folks attack Scrappy-Doo on Scooby when the whole original foursome were the least inspiried Hanna-Barbera chaarcters, coincidentally, in 1969, since that's when Dodie came. Though as My Three Sons was wworth watching, that may be a reason all the same to resent Dodie for killing it..Scooby, which came on at the same time as did Dodie, was crap from the start, so addiung Scrappy as a "shark jumoer" doesn't matter. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on July 19, 2015, 10:25 pm

I Love Lucy - TV Shows
I have seen almost every episode of this show, zillions of times as they show it 24/7 on every channel and Nick at Nite.. and hands down this show definitely took the plunge when they did the move to Connecticut thing. That was just telling everyone that they had run out of ideas and focus with the show so maybe a new setting will give us some new ideas. (IE. Fred and chicken raising, nosey neighbors, country living references) and IMHO that bombed big time as it lead to the total demise of the show while adding little Ricky was annoying as well it definitely didn't kill the show nor did the trip to California or Europe as they had some good moments there. But once they got to CT. UGH! The show was over and died a painful death as theres not one funny CT episode. The whole idea was that they were a New York family and living in the Mertz's apartment. Now Fred and Ethyl moved to CT too with them? WHAT THE HELL IS THAT ABOUT?! I'm not even going to get into what is wrong about that. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on July 19, 2015, 12:15 pm

What's up with the complaints about the birth of little Ricky? Gee whiz she was pregnant and they were married in real life what could be more natural? What would've been the alternative?

Golden Girls, The - TV Shows
I don't think GG ever really Jumped The Shark, but at some point it did start to lose steam. I think it was around Season 5 when the show got new writers. It started off as a being about real issues older people face but then the outlandish relatives appeared, the character traits became more caricature-ish and redundant (Rose dumb and tells a story about St. Olaf, Blanche slut, Dorothy can't get a date, Sophia makes smart remark and tells a story about Sicily etc.) It's easy to tell when the show is losing its grip on reality- the girls seem to wear more elaborate, expensive nighties and wear heels and a lot of makeup before bedtime. And their schtick became formulaic and repetitive. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on July 19, 2015, 11:59 am

This was not a Shark Jump moment but remember when everyone got mad at Lynn's sister Tanya because she told Joan how it was, and sung the n word along with everyone else in Ronnie's salon. Um, it was so obvious she was just singing along with the Jay Z song and was not trying to be derogatory. But suddenly everyone's opinion of her changed like she had rode in on a horse wearing a white sheet. And didn't I hear Maya call her a wigger when they first met her? That's not derogatory? -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on July 19, 2015, 11:51 am

Eight Simple Rules - TV Shows
I laughed when I saw Pokey's comment that the Big Bang Theory is "almost dead." The show remains, even deep into summer reruns, the highest rated show on TV (source: TV By The Numbers). I agree it has become stale and I miss as many episodes as I watch but the show is hardly "almost dead." Any show that can annihilate ratings juggernauts like Big Brother with a 3rd run repeat definitely has a loyal fan base that will still watch in it's 25th season (shudder). Just ask the Simpsons. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on July 18, 2015, 6:22 am

I said Day 1, mainly because it didn't make sense to show all the superhuman/robotic feats in slow motion. A. it looks ridiculous, and B. the guy is supposed to be running 60 miles an hour, throwing stuff to infinite distances, etc., and they're dumbing it down and not accentuating it with the slow mo. Obviously they did it because they didn't really have/make the technology to make the stuff seem possible, but the logic of showing it in slow motion just feels completely backwards to me. -- Submitted By: (MvGSports) on July 17, 2015, 10:33 pm
