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.

Family Affair (1966) - TV Shows
This was one the several shows where a hair change was better--Cissy\'s hairdos improved..I liked her more older look...(I was on the Cosby Show board and they made the very good usual point of a hairstyle point not changing...) This show rocked back and forth from being a comedy and a drama, but then so did all of the pre-70s shows by a number of studios, including Screen Gems, and the studio and that made this, and My 3 Sons, and the forgotten To Rome with Love, (aka MTS with girls!), the independent Don Fedderson Productions, which, BY THE WAY, did the original versions of two of the most iconic music shows of the era! (Liberace and Lawrence Welk. Mr.Fedderson,btw, was the broadcaster of the station that put Liberace on TV..source:THE WORSE TV SHOWS EVER, 1980, Bart Andrews).(update:included autholr's name after looking it up in Amazon) -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on August 31, 2015, 8:52 pm

Mark Evanier was the writer you mentioned, Travoltron. He's apretty neat historian that you probaly know of. His News from Me blog has been going on forever (Get it? M(ark) E(vanier)=Me.)

Brady Bunch, The - TV Shows
I won't make any Cousin Oliver/Scrappy Doo comparisions like others may as I'm not even a Scooby fan so it'd be a moot point Scooby with or without Scrappy (they're the same crap to me..) but Brady IS a show I do enjoy so I WILL say Cousin Oliver ... But one of the most underrated of the family members themselves (the original 9) is MARCIA Brady. Yes..she is MUCH MALIGNED..Marcia, Marcia, marcia. Attacked on Internet Movie Database just for having human flaws, attacked as too sexy, she is the neato-est.

Modern Family - TV Shows
Hmmm. Nobody is likable on this show anymore. All the kids are obnoxious, Cam and Mitchell are tiresome old cliches, Gloria and Jay, ho hum, she's just waiting for him to die, and Phil and Claire are boring, boring, boring. Maybe they could pull a Little House on the Prairie ending and burn down their subdivisions as they ride off to new lives. Either that or make them zombies. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on August 24, 2015, 3:40 pm

Luke has become completely stupid and a pervert, a very bad combination. Last season he not only ran around in a woman's bikini, he showed a picture of his junk to his sister Alex and laughed hysterically. He also had a sex talk with Lily, his very young niece.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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 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

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

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).

Season 5 is when this really jumped the shark...no parents, subpar storylines, a 4-parter about Penny getting abused was pretty disturbing, and it kind of became a variety show for everyone to showcase their "other talents"...Michael singing, Thelma dancing, Willona singing, Bookman doing impressions/impersonations. In season 6, it too felt like they ran out of ideas, Ben Powers was not a good actor/fit for the show and seemingly was only brought on to do impressions/impersonations. I thought they really had some momentum coming out of season 4, but they could never keep the cast together and season 5 was the clear beginning of the end. -- Submitted By: (MvGSports) on July 17, 2015, 10:16 pm

Mr. Robot played by Christian Slater is demented and delusional. Does he think seriously the world economy will collapse due to a banking hack?

The way this show SHOULD end. Sheldon wakes up one morning and discovers Leonard has vanished without a trace. He calls Penny, thinking he is there, but she says she never heard of anyone named Leonard. He asks Raj and Howard if they have seen Leonard and they both say they don't know who he is talking about. Sheldon goes to his office at the university to pout and to think when Leonard walks in and invites him to see something very cool. Sheldon follows and Leonard leads him into a very large room filled with computer sever banks. He leads him to a large cabinet and pulls open a drawer, similar to what they have in morgues. Laying on the pull-out table is Sheldon, his eyes are taped closed and he has wires coming out of his head and a feeding tube inserted in his nose. Leonard explains that the real Sheldon is the one in the drawer and that the other Sheldon, along with every one and every thing else in the world is a creation of his mind. Leonard closes the drawer and looks at his friend. "Does this mean I'm god?" Leonard answers, "Yes, Sheldon, you are god in this particular universe." "Cool!

Good show! I admit I was skeptical but the trailers drew me in and Rami Malek and Christian Slater can do weird seriously well. You want to root for the main character, Elliot (Malek) but we slowly find out he's really messed up mentally, snorts morphine for kicks, and stalks women he is attracted to, threatening any other males who come close. By comparison, Mr. Robot (Slater) seems harmless. All he wants to do is destroy the world financial system, Elliot wants to destroy people, the ones he doesn't like, which includes almost everyone. Creepy show but very well written and acted. Give it a shot, it's on basic cable so you don't hafta be a premium cable millionaire, lol. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 30, 2015, 2:36 pm

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. If they weaved the nano tech singularity into the show form day one, I think it would last longer . -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on June 13, 2015, 4:57 pm

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

Maybe the most unlikable cast ever assembled. OK, Melissa McCarthy is funny and somewhat likable but everyone else is beyond obnoxious.

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! OK, I'd be up for a Halloween Treehouse of Horror ONCE a year, but that's it! -- Submitted By: (spacer) on May 20, 2015, 4:14 pm

First of all guys, the name of the show is Veep, not The Veep. Secondly, it is a wickedly funny political satire.

Throw in Patton Oswalt as a ball-grabbing perv, and the amazing Tony Hale (Arrested Development) and recurring characters played by the likes of Kathy Najimy and Randall Park and you have an amazing show.

American Dreams - TV Shows
One you can't deny: Meg aka Brittany Snow getting her career stardom on was one very exemplary thing about this show. She went to "Pacifer" (starring Vin Diesel), then back again to early 60s in "Hairspray" to sing her heart out as the evil Amber, then to the two "Pitch Perfect" movies (second one has been the #1 movie and a very huge success since open day) as singer Chloe (singing...you can see several patterns, that and the early 60s concerning "American Dreams" and "Pitch perfect"..oh, and also "John Tucker' which was a non musical and others.)

It doesn't sound like we're disagreeing. But it really did destroy the G1 continuity. G1, Beast Wars, and Beast Machines all existed in the same cartoon continuity.

I thought it didn't have a chance of lasting even one full season but now it's a hit, go figure.

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

Beast Machines - TV Shows
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

Absolutely surprised that Peggy Charren and ACT criticized this for commercialism instead of praising the Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids like moralizing (but then, similar things have happened:i.e.,Katy Perry's parents banning her from watching Smurfs on grounds of being evil rather than grounds of the opposite LOL). Yech. Gave Nelvana Ltd. & Canada and BEARS a bad name (again LOL)). -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on April 26, 2015, 10:58 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
