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.

Breaking Bad - TV Shows
Pelirojo, that's the whole point of Breaking Bad. Meth is ruining the lives of the characters it touches. While Walter White gains more power, he loses more of the qualities that made him likable. He basically holds his family and Jesse Pinkman hostage to his whims and wishes. He's not a guy you cheer for. I'm very anti-drug. I've never used them and never will. I've seen them ruin the lives of people around me. That's the whole point of Breaking Bad: No bad deed goes unpunished. I still love this show and how the downfall of Walter White is illustrated. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 30, 2013, 10:59 am

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic - TV Shows
It really boned when lonely, boring, lazy sociopaths became fans of a show obviously aimed at little girls ages 2 - 11. These people are in ages 21 - 40. If that doesn't set the creepy bar up enough then I don't know what will. Other than there is conventions revolving around being a "Brony" where thousands partake in, all of which I seriously doubt has a kid that actually likes the show. These people take being a simple fan of a show into extreme heights again like we haven't seen this before. I, personally, have not watched the show. And I don't intend to, because I am not a girl and I am way beyond past it's age demographic. But, apparently these pools of people who have an obsessive compulsive disorder over this show haven't grown up an age or are confused about what their sex is. Because, push away the obvious fans of this show (that is the actual kids) and behind them we see mostly ugly looking guys who are into this show. The same people who proudly label themselves as "Brony", who claim that the people we're speaking against are "Cloppers" (Like, how the hell are we supposed to know or care beforehand what one of their terms are when we aren't as sick as them?), who frolic the internet plastering their love for the show when it isn't asked. And claim it's all in the name of "Love and Tolerance." When, the ironic part is, they can't tolerate opinions that are against them. We're supposed to tolerate them but doesn't work the other way around apparently. Also, Love shouldn't feel forced, like it does when these bronies feel they need to "ponify" everything in existence. It's pretty sad when you know something about a show without having to watch it because of freaks like these. Especially when they rely on the simplistic and basic natures/teachings this show provides which is geared torwards kids for a reason. Just...ugh....screw bronies and their whole fandom. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on September 29, 2013, 3:06 pm

Beavis and Butthead - TV Shows
I didn't like how this show tried to return into the modern times. Where in the modern times, everyone is trying to be politically correct in the extremist level. And MTV was way too in love with reality tv to divorce itself from having any original material or anything having to do with music videos at all. It worked when it originally aired. And no it wouldn't work if they did youtube videos because it'd grow stale after a while. -- Submitted By: () on September 29, 2013, 3:02 am

Back to the Future: The Animated Series - TV Shows
The whole problem with this show simply was because of the fact that it followed after the craptastic ending we got in BTF III.

I've never watched it and the comments here make me even less interested in it because I do not want to see a show that glorifies something that is on record for having ruined everything it touches [producers,consumers, families, the environment].

Lucy Show, The - TV Shows
The Lucy Show is a classic and has held up after all these years. The series was never out of the top 10 show for its' six year run and when Vivian Vance left at the end of season 3 the show became even more popular ending in the no. 2 slot in its' final season. The Lucy Show just further established that people loved Lucy and she was the reason why they tuned in. In addition, Lucy earned 4 Emmy nominations for Best Actress In A Comedy Series and won two for the fifth and sixth seasons. I have all six seasons on DVD and can't wait until CBS releases a boxed set like they did with I Love Lucy. -- Submitted By: (RussellTelesca) on September 27, 2013, 6:42 pm

Rugrats - TV Shows
I didn't *like* Dil per se, but I was not overtly bothered with him. I was amongst the younger folk with the Nickelodeon lineup so naturally I lapped up the Rugrats very readily. There was definitely a difference when he came to town, but during those years Rugrats would be something I would watch if there was nothing else on (i.e. when the hotel rooms had a few cable channels consisting mostly of sports and Nickelodeon). Kimi though - that was around when I got over Rugrats. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 24, 2013, 8:54 pm

King of the Hill - TV Shows
It was not without a few issues along the way, but in comparisson to other shows that lasted this long or similar it maintained quality really well. The tone was generally kept and characters actually grew somewhat (the best example by surprise was John Redcorn - a lot of hidden depths were given to him overtime) plus were relatable. Hank was a fantastic character contrasted with more dysfunctional kinds around him which helped a lot. Bobby was the best written animated kid around - actually acted like a kid, even the goody two-shoes have their rebelliousness; therefore, I think the criticism of him is unfair. Real issues on the show were explored and it showed an overlooked area of America - small town, blue collar folk. I can forgive a tonne, thus it never boned. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 23, 2013, 1:56 am

Bobs Burgers - TV Shows
I actually (because of a recent comment here) tried this show out and it is actually half-decent if you give it a go. It was the first couple of episodes and it might be rocky - but so was the Simpsons in its heydey, so was King of the Hill, especially South Park all when compared to what came later. Again, just be thankful you have a decent, hard-working man as a protagonist (ala Hank Hill) who is relatable. Thank goodness that they show a blue collar family like a blue collar family actually is. I will not vote yet; I need to give a few more episodes a go just in case. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 23, 2013, 1:50 am

Bobs Burgers - TV Shows
I've heard a lot of good things about it from friends and family. I've even watched an episode or two. I just can't get over what are obviously men voicing female characters. I mean, why? What's the purpose of that choice? It just takes me out of the whole thing. I know that may seem superficial, and it probably is, but I can't be the only one put off by it. And no, women like Nancy Cartwright voicing boys in cartoons is not the same thing. If they had a real boy to play Bart Simpson in 1987, we'd probably be on our fifth voice actor for him by now. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 22, 2013, 6:21 pm

As Told By Ginger - TV Shows
I have to disagree. It wasn't crappy, heck, it received THREE Emmy nominations, was wildly popular at first and was the first animated show on Nickelodeon to appeal to pre-teens and teens. That might have also been it's undoing too. And Nickelodeon I'm sure didn't help either, constantly changing the scheduling of the show (I missed seeing newly aired episodes as it was that bad) and tried too hard. And when Nickelodeon finally killed it off, it was rushed, and even with a glimpse into the future in the closing of "The Wedding Frame", leaving the viewer with what I call "unfinished business". That being said, the show somehow had a second life between 2008-2009 when a few unaired episodes saw life on Nicktoons. If the show was revived, would it make a great YouTube series? You bet! ATBG is a perfect example of a decent show ruined by network execs screwing around with the show and writers/producers trying too hard to stay clean. ATBG could have learned from somewhat family friendly King of the Hill. Futurama is another example, but luckily for it, Matt Groening does it all. ATBG had the misfortune of split handling, with Emily Kapnek producing and writing alongside Klasky-Csupo, which burned out right after the show ended. I hope that the show is not too far gone for some sort of quirky revival, as it was one of the few things from my adolescence which was actually nice. I could relate to Ginger. -- Submitted By: (Northeastern292) on September 21, 2013, 11:42 pm

Gundam - TV Shows
To me, it was Gundam 00. A great idea, but marred with poor execution and lousy characters that got derailed a lot in terms of their traits and actions. It did, however, give me Nena Trinity (probably gonna get a lot of "Bones" for that), so the series wasn't 100% bad... just 99%. And people complain about Kira Yamato acting like a Messiah...

X-Files - TV Shows
I was a regular watcher when this was on. It's funny, because in retrospect I think the show jumped in more than one way. This was a great show at least up until the 6th season or so. But by that time, a couple of problems had crept up - 1) the story arc no longer made sense after they failed to explain very well the alien rebel thing - in fact IIRC they don't appear again after the Cassandra Spender eps. 2) The soap opera element of the will they, wont they garbage - (I hated it at the time, and I think Chris Carter would have been better off from the start writing the series so it was NOT remotely possible for them to have a relationship). The sudden manner in which most of the conspirators are killed leads me to think that Chris Carter realized the conspiracy episodes were starting to make no sense and he wanted to have the show go back to almost exclusively monster of the week episodes, which are the highlight of the series IMO and where the originality really shines. I agree that the moment the show actually jumped was Mulder leaving the show, though in season 8 having more monster of the week improved things temporarily - but I think the single most upsetting jump (of several) for me was the retcon he did on Samantha. It was other sloppy way to 'resolve' that arc and clean the slate of the show, and I remember at the time fans were (rightly) outraged. Things like the move to LA were bad trends but not jumpers - I remember the California-centric filming locations created problems such as - the setting in one ep being Pennsylvania, but lazily allowing palm trees to be seen in the background. -- Submitted By: () on September 20, 2013, 9:59 pm

This show was a classic back when I was a mouthy, hormonal girl of 13. And my best friend and I watched it for one reason: Chuck Connors.

Pelirojo, of course (I'm the "()") I admire Mr.Blanc efforts----pre-1970s,anyway when everything about cartoons went downhill, and not counting the disastrous things at WB at the time, like that inexplicable Daffy/Speedy G. team up. BTW regarding one of my comments, the singing babies episode which wound up a nightmare that we didn't Fred have at first (Season 6, Episode 1, "No Biz Like Show Biz"), was flawed,m definitely, but it's somewhat better than others make it out to be. I have to confess that I am also a closet Gazoo fan... The 'Stones had their various mixed results in those last several seasons (Season 5 had a number of clunkers though also had some experimental and interesting adventure episodes including gangsters stealing a very expensive car (this episode had the ring leader using one of his goons as target practice!), the famous (and SCARY!) encounter with the FUGLY Doctor Sinister (in that 1964-65 title episode, with Madame "I'm MUCH too IMPORTANT to be CAPTGURED" yes, one of the several J.Bond spoofs during the early films's era), "A Haunted House is not a Home" which followed it (the one with Uncle Giggles, to use "Friends's" dialect) and the one that I think is either Season 5 or 4 (it's from 1964) where Fred is not only clocked on the head making him talk like a kid (a rehash of a classic Season 1 episode, "The Split Personality") but the doctor hired is a Ben Casey like evil doctor (complete with "Dr.Zorba" like short size superior) who transers Fred and Dino...okay, you know that plot device (this being "Monster Fred"). -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on September 19, 2013, 1:57 am

You can't possibly judge a show without seeing it first. This is a creative and original show in a sea of Family Guy copycats.

Also there is love in this family, something I haven't seen in an animated show in a while. If you liked early Simpsons, there's no way you won't like this one.

As a practicing Christian, I can say that this show blatantly distorted Christianity! Rev. Camden lived way too lavishly for a minister and did not have any humble bone in his body.

Family Affair (1966) - TV Shows
I watched a few of these shows a couple of months ago and noticed how the editing was "not consistent" with the "flow" of things. Kind of like on My Three Sons where they show Steve having a conversation with "anyone" and the flow is not smooth. Of course this is due to the fact the Fred M. only filmed a few days, (if that), per week. Back to this show. The whole premise is a bit far fetched; even for TV. One would think that Bill would help "payroll" the raising of the kids back in their hometown with the other relatives.

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
I think this show really boned when the movie was released. Too late, I think. It felt like one incredibly long episode that was combined with parts and no edits. I just didn't like that movie very much. Sure, the animation has gotten better and the series has gone through a lot of evolution. But what does it have to offer anymore? It's a show that pretty much has done everything there is to do, and it's just taking quick swift jabs at whatever it feels like doing. Just that and move on. And Homer has really been downplayed into what was once a character to being a "I'll exaggerate everything I do and do stupid things and comically get myself hurt or insulted just for the sake of saying "D'oh!" routine. That's what some of the other characters were doing too. "Hey you know me as this guy, so I'll just do my routine over and over." it just gets old. Whatever happened to those in-depth episodes where we actually had a story to follow, there were actual good jokes and the characters were memorable. Even ones that didn't have a lot of air time. It happens to shows that stay this long. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on August 22, 2013, 1:00 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
I always think the forever running gag of the show is everytime Peter or one of the characters starts off "It reminds me of that time when" and then a theorized flashback comes up. It just tries hard to be funny. I missed out on it's "uncensored" days, though. But I've seen shows where they were shot down because they were too rational, good, but too rational. Then they resurface and it's like they've been castrated on what balls they had before to do what they did in the first place. So, now they continue to have their run but it seems like after every episode, they sort of turn over their shoulder, so they make sure they're making their network happy before resuming. That's the impression I get from Family Guy. Back then, a certain few crowds got the jokes and laughed with it. And the ones who didn't were left standing there going "HUH?!" because it flies over their head. But now, they're laughing at the new jokes the series has made since it's revival. While the same few crowds before are now just shaking their heads while the ones who never got it in the first place are getting all the laughs. Simply because the waters are different. Stupid people laugh at stupid jokes. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on August 22, 2013, 12:47 am

Perfect casting, perfect writing, perfect acting, perfect pacing, perfect storytelling, perfect attitude. I mean, there isn't a fish bone anywhere close. I started watching the first episode Friday night and now I'm up to Season 4. It's THAT good. While broadcast stations spin their wheels with tired formats like reality, procedurals, soap operas and sitcoms, cable TV channels like TNT, AMC, HBO, Showtime and USA in recent years have blessed us with some of the best TV shows ever created thanks to the creative freedoms given to the writers and this is one of the top examples.

SpongeBob SquarePants - TV Shows
WHERE DO I BEGIN? First, I don't even understand why anyone even gave this show a chance after season 5 ...B the show, ACTUALLY, started boning during end of Season 3 (although that season had some of the BEST episodes, i.e. "Wet Painters" & "Krusty Krab Training Video"), with episodes like (ESPECIALLY) "I Had an Accident", "Doing Time", and that "special" episode, which should have STAYED "lost." Now, the movie was pretty good, but I had noticed that his voice was this falsetto-sounding, attempt at being higher-pitched. And by season 4, you could, definitely, hear the vocal change, and the animation seemed creepier (like, w/ that old woman from the "Where's Gary?" episode) ..Plus, you used to see the characters make these funny, exaggerated faces now & then (Squidwards "serious" face, and Spongebob's face, when he realized that Squidward liked Krabby patties), but now, the faces are TOO often, and TOO disturbing! Every second, Spongebob is making some exaggerating, disturbing face, that it's taking away from his cuteness (he used to be adorable to me, and now, he just appears "neurotic" and kinda creepy). Mr. Krabs, now, is just as evil as Plankton (if not more), when, before, he was just that cheap, and loved making money (like most businessmen..lol). Sandy is this know-it-all scientist (does she still love playing karate w/ Sponebob?) And Spongebob was naive, like a child, but not DUMB - Patrick was dumb (funny dumb - not ANNOYING dumb!), and now, he's just a bag of rocks ...and Squidward is being victimized to the point where I HATE Spongebob & Patrick, and wanna see Squidward hurt 'em! ..and these scenes & images are too disturbing, like "handsome" Squidward, Spongebob having a disgusting splinter, Sandy removing her skin, "Face Freeze", and, worst of all ..that HORRIFIC scene, where Squidward's toenail gets ripped out!

I'm a Bible-believing person, and I don't like how the Simpsons has jumped on that "anti-God" tip, but that's more about the fact that they were not doing so much of this, before you had the "shock" jokes in animation, like South Park and Family Guy ...But I realize that if the creator is a liberal, democrat, atheist, or whatever, he has a right to express what he stands for (and against) through his cartoons, just as Hank Hill (or his daddy, Cotton) represented that right-winged, Southerner, who feel that only right-wingers are patriotic ..It's obvious that many of y'all are Obama-hating-Bush-supporting viewers, who, I'm sure, would have no issue if it were just Obama and liberals being bashed (and I don't support democrats, OR liberals - honestly, I don't care for ANY political affiliation, but I see the hypocrisy in a lot of your responses) -- Submitted By: (Lashid4u) on August 19, 2013, 4:10 am

Big Bang Theory - TV Shows
About a month ago I started watching this show. (there was nothing else on) I can actually say, for what I've seen so far, that I do like it. I'm watching it mostly in syndication, so it jumps around a lot. One show will have only the central characters, while the other has Amy and Bernadette. But it hasn't been all that difficult to figure out. Sheldon is a great character on the show. As said in another topic he's an awkward; socially inept but smartest in the room character. Which I've always liked those kinds of characters. I'm often disappointed when he loses, and the couple of episodes Ive watched with Sara Gilbert irritate me. lol -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 18, 2013, 10:40 pm

Maybe the series is good and I'm just nitpicking but the canned laughter makes it unbearable for me. It's more or less like they suppose the audience is so god damned dull that they have to place bigh flashy signs whenever a "joke" happens so you don't forget to laugh - even pausing the dialogue so your rotting brain can have enough time to process the genius behind the NERD HUMOR. -- Submitted By: (Saunich) on August 18, 2013, 5:12 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
In reply to the person who posted 3 posts down from me, yes, The Simpsons have had a history of ripping on both political parties. The keyword here is HISTORY. Shots were taken at both sides until the early 00s then it became pretty much pure liberal propaganda. Some examples include the multiple Fox-News bashings (usually displayed on a helicopter), everyone being in favor of gay marriage in There's Something about Marrying, Michelle Obama portrayed as Superwoman, every kid wanting to impersonate Barack Obama for a school presentation in one episode, etc. As a libertarian, I identify with neither liberal vs conservative/republican vs democrat. Hating both parties and mindsets equally, I feel I'm able to view the show's politics (at least in regard to the left-right bashing, as I support neither). -- Submitted By: (xjk118) on August 18, 2013, 12:19 am

Transformers: Prime - TV Shows
Even with the original voices of Prime & Megatron returning, I could never really get into this show. Maybe it's the CGI, or more likely it's the damn kids. I've heard people diss Spike from the '80s cartoon as "never doing anything." Well that's the point. The show should be about the Transformers. Spike served his purpose, giving the Transformers someone to deliver exposition to (and occasionally rescue). These kids are just obnoxious. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 11, 2013, 12:49 pm

FOX News - TV Shows
One thing that Fox News has not been doing is reporting on Obama's background and his identity. They don't mention The Cold Case Posse that started out trying to verify Obama's 2011 version of his Birth Certificate and then expanded to so much more as they have been tracking Obama's background. Or that Congressmen Ted Yoho and Steve Stockman have been in contact with Chief Investigator Mike Zullo and Sheriff Arpaio. They also don't mention much about some other topics brought up in right leaning sites. Especially the voter fraud in the 2012 election. They half-assed it, by trying to do a series on voting fraud during the lead up to the election day and they then dropped it after it was a proven fact there were both some odd occurrences in the voting totals in some areas of the country and people were arrested for voting multiple times, plus some voting machines had errors. They also never mentioned about how a network the RNC set up to get people out to the polls vis computer and mobile device was hacked or how people from both the RNC, tea party and True The Vote were kicked out of polling stations and precincts in various cities. All in all they did a poor job with that election. So now there is two outlets on the right trying to challenge Fox in the form of tv news channels. The Blaze and One America News. They don't think Fox News is doing a good enough job or that there is enough outlets on the right on TV. -- Submitted By: () on August 11, 2013, 12:15 pm

Lone Gunmen, The - TV Shows
That was my main problem with the show, too. It just reeked of studio interference. "Nobody's gonna wanna watch three geeks; add a babe and a hunk!" I watched most of the episodes and those two characters really dragged things down. The show flopped and was cancelled and then Chris Carter, like a spoiled brat, decided to kill off the Lone Gunmen in an X-Files episode to punish the fans for not watching the show. The episode was even named Jump the Shark. As for the 9/11 parallels, I can't explain it. It's the weirdest, most bizarre coincidence that I've ever experienced. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 3, 2013, 10:41 am

And of course I could tell that the episode was a "special episode" depicting another of life's social tragedies.

Dennis the Menace (1959 sitcom) - TV Shows
I just read a portion of Jay North's account of his days as Dennis. This has also been confirmed by Jeannie Russell who played Margaret and remained close friends with Jay to the present day, just like Pelirojo said. His mother worked full time and could not supervise Jay on the set so she got her sister to go with him to the studio every day and look out for his interests. Apparently Jay's dad was out of the picture. His aunt was a monster who slapped and hit the boy when he flubbed a scene or was not giving his best performance. Of course this took place away from the director, cast and crew. According to Jay, she would hit him "where it didn't show," so no one on set would become alarmed. Jeannie Russell confirmed this went on for years and saw bruises and red marks on Jay's back. Remember she was a child herself at the time and was scared to speak up. Jay himself was terrified of the aunt who promised to severely hurt him if he told anyone. Of course this was well before the days when California had social workers on the set where children were working. It is truly amazing that Jay turned out to be a happry, well adjusted adult. He gave up acting in his teens and leads a quiet life with his family in Florida. I'll never be able to see a picture of jay during those years without my heart breaking for him. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 19, 2013, 9:31 am

This show was a bit before my time and I'm finally getting to see it on MeTV. It co-stars Marge Simpson and Garfield the Cat, so I had to check it out. What on odd history this show had. Initially it was a huge hit. The wedding episode broke all kinds of Nielsen records. Then the producers ran out of ideas and decided to have Rhoda get divorced in the 3rd season. I don't know why they thought viewers would want to see that. Ratings dropped like a stone overnight and it never recovered.

Good insights, jim. What's interesting is that contrary to their onscreen rivalry, the performers who played Dennis and Margaret were [and remain] good friends offscreen.

You have to understand, this Batman show is not trying to be your typical "Dark Knight" show, but. A more upbeat one, akin to Adam West.

Oh and Travoltron, they didn't shoehorn him in, this pays homage to the Brave and the Bold comic which pretty much always had Batman starring. -- Submitted By: (trigga415) on July 16, 2013, 3:02 am

Father Knows Best - TV Shows
My gram remembers when this show was on TV and always said how good it was, so I watched a bunch of the episodes on Netflix. Yikes! First of all, the town (Springfield!) seemed to be 100 percent white and middle class. A typical plot involved Bud (the dim-witted teenage son) getting into hilarious shenanigans with his idiot friends. After getting "a stern talking to" (1950's code for getting his butt whipped) Bud will wipe his eyes and whimper something like "Holy Cow! None of the other guy's got into trouble!" To which his father replies, "That's because none of the other dads love their sons as much as I love mine!" Then sappy music swells up and the whole family agrees that "Father really does know best!" Do the same thing over and over and forever and that's pretty much the show! Except occasionally the teenage daughter Betty will do the shenanigans. This show literally had no minorities and it belittled women to the point where I was rooting for the mom to gut-stab the old man during dinner. One episode I saw had Betty demanding to go duck hunting with the boys since her brother got to go. Of course shenanigans ensued and Betty admitted that women should stay home and cook the ducks, not go shoot them. Of course here comes the sappy music and everyone agreeing, "Gee, Betty, maybe father really does know best!" Off set, the actor Billy Gray (Bud) was a pothead. He was busted shortly after the show ended for possession with intent and didn't work for several years as an actor. Another true fact is that Gray holds a U.S. patent for a type of "personal massager." I would have loved to have seen Bud try to explain those shenanigans to dear old dad!" -- Submitted By: () on July 15, 2013, 4:16 pm

Twilight Zone (1959-64) - TV Shows
Rod Serling was a brilliant writer, brilliant! I have always read (in academic books as well as the popular press) that CBS would not leave him alone and micro-managed the series to death. Many of his scripts were rejected for being "too intellectual" and the network forced him to include feel-good stories that had little to do with the original premise. Still, Serling managed to write and produce some of the best episodes ever shown on TV: "Time Enough at Last" with the awesome Burgess Meredith; "The Hitch-Hiker," with the equally brilliant Inger Stevens; and of course two William Shatner scenery-chewing delights, "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" and "Nick of Time." I still get a kick out of seeing Serling stepping out from behind the set in the original episodes, reeking of 1960 sophistication and cool. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 3:01 pm

Jeffersons, The - TV Shows
Funny show for a few seasons but it stayed on the air for, what, 11? I have made a point of watching some of the later season shows, currently in syndication. Not only has Lionel disappeared for the second time, or wait I guess for the third time, but Louise is acting like a rich b-word and George has lost touch with his roots. Jenny is still on the show but the character has become an air-head and the Willis's are painfully stupid and out of touch. What really did it for me was when Louise and George went to a charity costume ball and they dressed like famous white people! The old George and Weezy would never have done that and would have selected Dr. King and Rosa Parks or other famous, historically important African-Americans. Oh, Marla Gibbs remained funny as hell as Florence throughout the entire series. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 2:38 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
OMG I wish I could erase the final season from my brain. This was a very funny show for 8 seasons, which is something really hard to pull off. I just wish they had wrapped it up before the bizarre and obnoxious final season. Oh, and I would not mind at all if the Tom Arnold episodes were physically cut out of my brain as well. As others have noted, what gave this show its huge fan base was the fact that it was based in reality. The Connors had a crappy house but it was theirs and they fought to keep it. They had a totally dysfunctional family but they all loved each other and forgave each other's shortcomings. I grew up in house a lot like that, my brothers and I never knew we were poor and thought everyone had dry cereal and crackers for dinner every now and then. Season 9 arrives and the Connors are no longer poor, guess what? They were no longer funny either and not even remotely likeable. I always thought the series finale was Roseanne giving her fans a big fat finger. I still don't like here and will change the channel when she comes on. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:59 pm

Mork & Mindy - TV Shows
I loved this show when I was a kid and thought it was the very pinnacle of sophistication and wit. Boy, was I wrong! I saw an episode recently and was shocked at how stupid everyone was, especially Mork! I gave it another chance the next time I stumbled across an episode and it was even worse then the first one. Williams and Winters babbled, hooted, geeked out, made idiotic noises and gestures and the other characters thought they were cute.

Dead Like Me - TV Shows
I could never stand Mandy Patinkin until I started watching this show. I quickly came to love his Rube Sofer character and it absolutely made the show, he held together an amazing ensemble cast. The storylines were pretty unusual for what was basically a sitcom, even a weird sitcom. I loved how they showed the afterlife as being different for each person, with no stereotypical angels sitting around on clouds. Although it could be sad, particularly when dealing with the aftermath of George's death on her family, it could also be very, very funny! It was cancelled far too early and the movie they made to wrap up loose ends was awful! It will remain a classic forever. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:11 pm

Dennis the Menace (1959 sitcom) - TV Shows
Wow! Have times ever changed! I saw some of the episodes decades after they first aired and remembered thinking Mr. and Mrs. Wilson were in their 80's. My dad said they were supposed to be in their early 60's. Amazing, they got up each morning, got dressed up and sat around staring at each other, except when Mr. Wilson would have his daily apoplectic fit over the neighbor's 1st grader. My dad is now 70, still works full-time, has tons of activities and refuses to be baited by a five year old, LOL! It seemed like a cute show but I did wonder why Dennis' parents didn't lay down the law on his pranks. Maybe he actually did kill Mr. Wilson? The guy was always on the verge of a stroke anyway. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:02 pm

Outer Limits, The (1963-1965) - TV Shows
I agree, best intro and outro music, ever! For Christmas a few years ago I got the entire original series boxed set on DVD and watched every single episode. The writing was phenomenal and never insulted serious science fiction fans. Alternate dimensions, alien civilizations, time warps, wormholes, all were featured on various episodes and had cutting edge theories in physics. This was NOT a dumbed down show that had an obligatory monster-of-the-week. The actors were some of the best in Hollywood at the time and I imagine it became a cool show to work. Martin Landau, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Culp, Robert Duvall, Sally Kellerman, Geraldine Brooks, Dabney Coleman and many more made this a first class production. Unlike The Twilight Zone, which had its share of bad episodes, schlock and camp, The Outer Limits stuck to its principles. They never produced a cute or funny episode, just excellent TV and story telling! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 12:50 pm

Parker Lewis Can't Lose - TV Shows
Good show with a good cast and crew, including one of the best TV directors of the period, Rob Bowman, who went on to direct some of the best episodes of the X-Files. I recently saw some PLCL episodes and they were pretty funny but very weird. I thought Parker and Mikey had a full on bro-mance. They were just too stupid (Mikey) or scared (Parker) to act on it. Funny how they were always talking about girls but when they had the chance to actually get into serious relationships, they always chickened out. In one episode they both had "hot dates" but found the girls boring and ditched them and met up with each other. Parker, Mikey and Kubiak rocked but I didn't like The Jerry character and found him to be an offensively stereotypical Jewish kid. Some belly laughs but mostly just pleasant stories about good kids. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 12:29 pm
