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.

Patrick Macnee just went to his reward at age 93. He had been a soldier in WWII and saw so much carnage that he refused to have his character [Steed] carry a gun so they asked him what would he have as a weapon and Mr. Macnee replied in that desperate moment 'an umbrella'! YES, that's how Steed got to have one as a weapon. RIP, Steed. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 28, 2015, 12:20 pm

Sex and the City - TV Shows
Correct me if I'm wrong but, from what little I stomached of it, it seemed to be about a group of entitled, tacky backbiters who obsessed over first world problems and dissed the men in their lives for being as shallow and one-dimensional as they themselves were to men. The only good thing about this, as far as I could tell, is that it had a catchy theme song. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 28, 2015, 12:15 pm

Square Pegs - TV Shows
I remember this one. It had its moments but the thing I disliked about it was the total hypocrisy of the protagonists. Virtually from Day One they openly dissed the 'clique' to each other that they were so desperate to join yet we [the audience] were supposed to root for them and jeer at the clique for excluding them but, really, WHY should the clique have wanted folks who disliked them in it [and even the dimmest bulbs can usually sense when others dislike them]? It would have been one thing had they started the school year with unrealistic worship of those of the clique but then gradually gotten their eyes open and realize they didn't need to have anything to do with said clique which would have been perfectly realistic and sympathetic. Instead they constantly took umbrage for themselves and never once did any of the four of them call out their hypocrisy for wanting to join a group of folks they disliked. Instead Oh, and I also didn't like that the protagonists themselves were somewhat bigoted. This may have helped train Sarah Jessica Parker for "Sex in the City". -- Submitted By: () on June 28, 2015, 12:05 pm

Revolution - TV Shows
I would say from day one because the produce were all over with the plot. SPOILERS: Season : a lot of effort was put into have to save brother plot: in the end it was a throw away plot, then have to find the tower and another throw away. Season: 2: the build up and cliff hanger of Season one was mostly forgotten. There was potential for an interesting plot concerning nanotechnology.

Lawrence Welk Show, The - TV Shows
I've always loved this..The Lennon Sisters (or..as Lawrence would call them:"The Luffly Lennons"), and the others........if you wanted your music easy going, oft-going back to the early 1920s (speaking of which, shouldn't good ol' Mitch Miller's 1961 "Sing Along With mitch" have ITS own entry?), virtually none of the innuendo side to C.Porter, Benny Goodman, etc., and well dressed "luffly luffly ladides" and gentlemanyl gentleman, who made Mary Poppins and Bert the Chimney Sweep seem groovy....well, Lawrence Welk (my man) was it. Even I though I couldn't be exactly his target audience, I've enjoyed his stuff...how much, oh...so much that I have three LPs and several spin offs from his star gals, the Lennon Sisters..(sigh...Janet and Peggy..my crushes...like Kathy Garver in Family Affair as Cissy, per Lawrence's requests, all those girls looked older..but I've always loved the Lennons, and the polkas..).. Lawrence certainly knew HOW to attract an audience.Even fired his first Champagne lady Alice Lon for showiung Cheesecake.... That even included as he became (in 1971) yet the latest casuality of advertiser demographic preferences, though with younger skewing counterparts like (just to use his own network ABC) "The Brady Bunch" and "Partridge Family" it was obvious that Welk could have just as well been on there..the bradys, partrdiges..with Welk..? Totally Concievable..he even reigned later with a new extension in the seventies in syndication with many younger groups (Simenski Sisters being amoing them.) -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on June 2, 2015, 12:41 am

Veep - TV Shows
Funniest political satire, ever! The language can be pretty shocking at first but after all it's on late at night on HBO, that should give you a clue that the characters will not be spouting any gee-willikers or dag-nabbits. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is pure comic genius and ranks right up there with Tina Fey with her natural sense of timing and dead-pan, dead-on delivery. I was thrilled Patton Oswalt and Hugh Laurie signed on as regulars. Oswalt is just plain funny, and Laurie was so amazing as House, many people don't know he is a gifted comedic actor. His role as the Prince Regent in Black Adder is perfectly performed and although I have seen the episodes a dozen or more times, Laurie still makes me laugh out loud every time. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on May 27, 2015, 1:20 pm

Fresh Off the Boat - TV Shows
The main criticism of this show is its failure to make better use of its premise. Instead of developing a unique product, it seems to be nothing more than a cookie cutter sitcom with generic (insert ethnic group here) characters. After a very rocky start in February 2015, it did seem to find an audience and was renewed for a second full season by ABC. There was one outstanding episode that proves the producers really can make good TV. The mom (the very cool Constance Wu) thought she had achieved acceptance with the other women in her neighborhood. She found out later that they only pretended to befriend her and were actually mocking what they considered to be her tacky jewelry, cheap clothes and thick accent. Instead of plotting a wacky revenge in classic sitcom style, she rose above it and informed the ladies she would still be their friend but asked they not judge all Chinese by her lack of sophistication and style. She totally put them in their snooty places. The story-line went from silly to sad to awesome in the space of 22 minutes. I hope they have more episodes like that in their next season. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on May 27, 2015, 1:04 pm

Fresh Off the Boat - TV Shows
Chef Eddie Huang, who's autobiography the show is based on, was very disappointed at the generic sitcom style of the production. At first criticizing it, he recently has backed off and has gained assurances from the producers that Season 2 will be more faithful to his book and his own family's experiences. To be fair, the writing did get much better during the second half of the first season. The Huang family sees their American neighbors as obsessed with pop culture, greedy, and not to be trusted. The neighbors see the Huangs as secretive, suspicious, and not to be trusted. I have high hopes for some really good storylines in Season 2. All in all, not a bad show and with a good chance of being very good. I'd give it a B- for the first season. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on May 22, 2015, 9:47 am

For the love of God and Humanity, kill this show! 27 years is too long for a TV show to live, it's just unnatural. The writers ran out of good ideas about a dozen seasons ago and as a result, the episodes are painfully NOT FUNNY! It seems every week the whole cast breaks into song and that hideous troll Moe has his own episode at least twice a month. Homer and Marge are senior citizens, Bart and Lisa are middle aged and Maggie is pushing 30! Enough, already! Let it die!

Smurfs, The - TV Shows
As with Scooby Doo, when they first appeared. Sad to see theatrical and very early television animators, background artists, layout people, voice actors, film cutters, musical directors and musicians, writers, et. al. and a once great (before reaching the USA) possibly excellent idea be turned into Care Bears/Pinky, The Brain and Elmyra/greeting card cutesiness.... sad. THIS from first hand, or, shall we say, first hoof, from a supporting player to Gumby who saw HIMSELF and Gumby and the gang retooled and ruined in 1987 for a new series of episodes..(and this after THREE...yep, count 'em, THREE Gumby series (plural) since the first batch (including 1955-56's "It's Howdy Doody Time" episodes). Granted, there IS Jokey, voiced by June Foray (who, like her boss, Jay Ward on Bullwinkle KNOWS something about true "'toon" comedy), but I'll stick with jay Ward. Hanna-Barbera? (They did this). Stick with the 1957-1964 stuff.. The Smurfs? Seek the Belgian Comics...(Though the movies seem to be much funnier and I love Katy Perry, as Smurfette..but I'll take the 1960s Hanna-Barbera, even some 70s cartoons. ) And as for the original Smnurfette Lucille Bliss, I'll stick with anything she did in the 60s or before (the original Anastasia in Cinderella by Disney.) -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on May 7, 2015, 10:25 pm

Pokemon - TV Shows
If Ash was traded for the real Red protagonist from the games, I think this show would be much more tolerable. I could not take Ash seriously as the Red counterpart for the anime. Red is a tough trainer and this is demonstrated when you face him in Gen II and IV. Ash is an absolute moron of a trainer who lets go of his precious team bit by bit and the only retaining pokemon he has is that godly over-powered plot-armored pikachu with him. The stories in the games had more of an idea of how to tell it than the anime did. The anime just downplayed a lot of the typical things animes are known for having, being the cliches. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on May 2, 2015, 1:36 am

I think you're awfully wrong on this being the show that killed the classic transformers. I think this show was derailing what momentum the transformers shows had going. G1 ended up hurting itself around Season 3 and was cut off by Season 4 before it had any chance to redeem itself. Beast Machines was a very poor followup to what was an awesome show in Beast Wars before it. The fact that a lot of potential was wasted to have a great sequel was wasted. Key characters were altered in very horrendous ways. Rattrap looked like a damn stoner, Arachnia looked like a tramp, Optimus Primal looked like he was high on something all the time and Megatron being this totalitarian asshole instead of a menacing leader. -- Submitted By: () on April 28, 2015, 9:54 pm

Huff - TV Shows
This was a great show! In the very first episode a teenage boy commits suicide in Dr. Huff's office. So much for being in touch with his patients! Huff realized he had become terrible at his job and hated the Beverly Hills lifestyle his wife and mother had forced him into living. Over the next two seasons, Huff desperately tries to rediscover his passion for helping people including his psychotic brother and increasingly disturbed son. The show won a butt-load of awards. The fact it was cancelled the very day it won it's second straight Emmy for best drama speaks volumes about Showtime. There's a reason HBO is number 1, they stick with great shows even if the ratings suck. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on April 25, 2015, 7:35 am

This show has really taken off and now regularly beats it's lead-in, The Middle (source: TV By the Numbers). One thing that has helped is less of a reliance on story lines revolving around the 11-year old Adam and more of a focus on the older teen siblings and the parents. I think it was something of a stretch to expect adults to get into the head of a kid as young as Adam but much easier to identity with high schoolers getting ready for college and getting into drinking, smoking pot, and sex. As for the mangled 80's references, it seems they have cut back on that gimmick as well as the obnoxious video taping by Adam. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 3, 2015, 8:42 am

REAL Ghostbusters, The - TV Shows
Hey, everybody, there was an actual organization (and Action for Childrens Television, for once, was NOT involved as far as I know :D) responsible for that second season overhaul..From Los Angeles Times, September 1987 (and I actually READ this when it was published..!) [quote, (c)Los Angeles Times] Diane Haithman, L.A.Times: [Originally Posted September 16,1987]: Saturday mornings on ABC will look a little different this fall. Some of those behind the scenes on this season's programs like the new look. Others hate it--and the force behind it--with a passion. Changes in the way some familiar cartoon characters speak, act and look in ABC's Saturday morning children's schedule, as well the design of new shows, are largely due to the input of a Glendale-based company with a name like something out of a James Bond movie: the Q5 Corp. In developing programs for the new season, third-rated ABC turned to Q5 for help in improving their kid appeal--and their ratings. [unquote] The author then gets to Ghostbusters and quotes trhe outrage among the people working on it...Just put in Google Search, "Q5 Corp." and "Ghostbusters", Q5 being the name of the group. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on March 29, 2015, 8:51 pm

In reply to Eugene's comment, Schulz, ironically hated the pleasant, cool-jazz soundtrack originally. This is oft-refered to from day one as using Hanna-Barbera sound effects but I believe this show predated H-B (which was still adding sound FX to its own inventory) in using some of those cartoony sounds (which themselves seem a bit odd in these specials LOL) to HB's library. But by September 1966, there was no zone between Hanna-Barbera and Melendez-Mendelson, the latter dynamic duo being the ones who made all these Peanuts specials since the first.

MCS, totally agree with you (but I still love the ones before the 80s and F'beagle)..and I agree, MCS, that Charle Brown did get bullies a little too much... then there was (also in the 80s) "Someday you'll find her") which has Charlie losing the love of his life to Woodstock, Linus, and Snoopy..but then again this was NOT the Little Red Haired Girl (whose own 1977 appearance may have also been a good shark jump since we SAW her now) but some blonde little girl that Charlie Brown saw on a television game (he DOES turn down another little girl who starts to crush on him while he's trying to find this little girl that he only saw on TV wehile two timing on the little red head girl...).. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on March 26, 2015, 7:58 pm

DuckTales - TV Shows
I agree with others here about the 2nd season, though I think it half boned. Bubba and Fenton (Gizmoduck) were introduced and some older characters like Gyro started to appear less. The 2nd season is definitely weaker, but I don't know if is enough to call it boned because of these changes. -- Submitted By: (Scots) on March 21, 2015, 5:55 pm

REAL Ghostbusters, The - TV Shows
The Real Ghostbusters is probably my favorite childhood show, and one that has held up to this day. While many of the cartoons I watched as a kid haven't aged well, Real Ghostbusters can still hold this adult's interest. As far as boning, the other commenters have the correct idea, but there is a third aspect of the boning not mentioned (the departure of the story editor). To summarize, Real Ghostbusters boned after Season 2 (the 65 episode syndicated 'season'). Three things happened. 1. The story editor, J. Michael Straczynski, left the show. 2. The focus of the show changed more over to Slimer, and the show slowly became more kiddie like. 3. Lorenzo Music (voice of Dr. Peter Venkmen) and Laura Summer (voice of Janine Melnitz; Janine loses her Brooklyn accent at this point) leave the show. A few of their episodes were even later redubbed. One silver lining as that all 3 of these things happened all at once, so one can simply not watch any episodes after Season 2. Stracynski did return a couple of years later for a few episodes, but it wasn't enough to save the series. -- Submitted By: () on March 21, 2015, 5:24 pm

Fist of the North Star - TV Shows
There's a running routine you'd have to get used to in order to progress through this show. Village living peacefully, bandits come in, bandits say stupid stuff, act all threatening and enslave the people in village or kill everyone. Bandits threaten hostages, Kenshiro comes in, bandits threaten hostages more, say they'll kick Kenshiro's ass a thousand times, get their asses kicked by Kenshiro, some leftover bandits run away and village back to peace. Rinse and repeat for almost half the show. But beside all of that, this show has some pretty deep development going for it. Every major villain has about a tragedy within themselves that make them do the things they do. They aren't doing it for the sake of just wanting the world. If you like seeing idiot bad guys just get dealt with in the most gruesome fashions possible. You'll enjoy this show, it's got good characters, strong development and writing, animation in some episodes go hand and in hand. Some quality of episodes look better than others while others look utter crap. If you still don't know where the phrase "You're already dead" came from. This show here. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on March 17, 2015, 8:46 am

Resurrection - TV Shows
Awesome show! It lasted two seasons which is amazing for an American series that deals with touchy subject matter that raised the ire of fundamentalist Christians. The show was first of all brilliantly written, directed and acted. It questions what we are and what happens when we die. Do we really have immortal souls? Can we come back after death? Is there a god? What is the nature of our reality? I will miss it but I am glad it got to run for two seasons. Omar Epps and Kurtwood Smith (Dr. Foreman from House and Red Forman from That '70's Show) turned in stunning performances on every episode. The biggest thing that freaked people out about this show was that it all revolved around the death of an 8-year old child. The boy came back but what was he? A demon or just a child needing a home? What would you do if your dead son came back home? Denounce him and turn him away or just love him and be thankful you were given a second chance to love him? -- Submitted By: (spacer) on March 8, 2015, 8:03 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
I never heard of this show, but I agree with the posters who are criticizing the apparent "everything that happened in the 80s being one big blur" premise. Even by modern TV standards that's too much. For example, in '82 I was 9. In '88 I was 15. Now, my memory of every single event that ever occurred in my life might not be 100% perfect but I (and almost everyone else) am at least able to differentiate between something that happened to me at age 9 and something that happened when I was a teen. That's not exactly asking the impossible. Unless the main character has some sort of brain damage, there's really no excuse for this sort of thing. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on March 2, 2015, 6:47 pm

Art is art, dude. That means a good piece of art, whether a painting, a photograph, or a TV show will mean different things to different people. Some will love it, some will hate it, and some will not care one way or the other. I personally like the show but if you don't, well that's OK. That's what I love about this site, there are some really smart people posting comments and they often disagree but they always make good points. I never even noticed the mixed up chronological references but apparently it's a big deal to some people, and that's cool. I thank them for pointing that out. I guess my heart wins out over my brain on this one. Beverly and Murray Goldberg remind so much of my parents it's frightening and make me realize how good I had it growing up. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on March 1, 2015, 7:28 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
Patton Oswalt, speaking to the critics of the show that demand 100% historical accuracy said it's not supposed to be an exact snapshot in time. If you listen to the way he delivers the line "it was September 8th (or whatever) 1980-something" you will hear him hesitate and almost mumble the last part because the character of adult Adam is embarrassed by his faulty memory. A running gag with the writers is to put two things together that don't belong, like a "new"game from 1984 with a "new" movie from 1982. People remember their childhood through a haze and often remember events wrong. Technically, this show is not a period piece but a show about an adult remembering the best parts of his childhood. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on February 28, 2015, 8:09 am

You guys act too childish to me. Not everyone is going to like the Goldbergs. To me, it went downhill when items from the early 1990s such as Hypercolor, New Kids junk, 8 Ball Jackets (I pretty sure I saw one) and that Bo Knows shirt turned up in '1980 Something'. I have no problem with the 80s pop culture references being scrambled around because the show is set in '1980 Something'(not an actual year of the 80s). Early 90s toys and shirts do not belong in '1980 Something'. The show un-boned after the Ferris Bueller special. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on February 26, 2015, 7:42 pm

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
I love how "expecting too much" is a reason for a TV show boning the fish. You guys said it yourself, "I shouldn't expect too much for this nonsense". If you shouldn't expect too much from something, what does that tell you about it? We live in the Google era, there should not be any shows with unreliable narrators in them. You can find anything with the tap of a finger nowadays. It's not like we're actually living in the 1980s and before. It's not like the creator of this show understands what the 80s were all about, anyway. Also, I hate how the creator doesn't realize Americans were still using tools like the Power Glove after 1989. The Power Glove was everywhere in all years of the Bush 1 era, not just '89. Don't believe me? Freddy Krueger uses a power glove to kill Spencer in Freddy's Dead from 1991. 1981-1987 were the core years of the 1980s. The creator should focus on the pop culture of those years and leave the late 80s (they pave the way for the early 90s) alone. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on February 26, 2015, 7:27 pm

I don't know a particular jump the shark moment, but even as a teenager I thought it was so odd that Robert Conrad was filmed so many times *walking away* from the camera as well as his pants always being skin tight.

I really like The Goldbergs and don't care if some of the dates are wrong. Since it's a work of fiction representing an adult's memory of things that happened 30 - 35 years ago when he was 11, how can anyone say what is wrong? Human memory is faulty. Maybe the guy honestly got some times and dates mixed up, maybe that's a part of the humor. The show is still very funny and it's a hit so a lot of people obviously like it. A renewal for season 3 is in the bag and I hope they go on for many more. Oh, I had a smother mother, too, so I feel Adam's pain. -- Submitted By: (bradrad) on February 23, 2015, 1:52 pm

Really, it's a well done show. Jeff Garlin has been one of my favorite actors for a long time. He's been in some great indie films and also had recurring roles in Arrested Development and Curb Your Enthusiasm. He's perfect as the slovenly, always put upon Murray Goldberg. George Segal is Hollywood royalty, or at least he should be, he's damn funny and has the perfect edge for his role as the family patriarch. I don't get why some people get so hung up on minor inconsistencies in the timeline. It's a great, touching and funny show, not a documentary on life in 1980-something! -- Submitted By: (spacer) on February 21, 2015, 12:01 pm

This is a great, wonderful, funny and awesome show! Could it be that those who are so offended by alleged minor errors in the 80's timeline are offended by something else? I notice none of the haters of this show ever mention the fact the family is Jewish, just pretend to hate it because the Goonies came out in 1985 and the kid watching it is wearing a t-shirt design from 1986! Oh my, the horror! It's like criticizing Leonardo da Vinci because his Mona Lisa was wearing a hairstyle that was not popular at the time of the painting. If you want to knock the show because you dislike the stories or cast, fine. If you don't like it because the family is Jewish, fine, say so and be done with it. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on February 17, 2015, 7:01 am
