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.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 - TV Shows
It boned after Joel left, for sure. I've had many impure thoughts about Joel..... I loved all the movies, but I have to say my all time favorite was "Eeegah!"...the movie was super schlocky, and all the commentary was totally razor sharp. I miss this show. Just like I miss "The Far Side." There's this whole chunk of brain that's just not getting any stimulation anymore!! -- Submitted By: (vickilaw) on July 22, 2012, 4:00 pm

Monkees, The - TV Shows
Here in central Florida, we get Monkees reruns on a channel called "Antenna TV," which -- as you'd guess -- is basically only on TVs that still use a digital converter box. It's channel 27.2 here. We get really moldy oldies on that station - Too Close for Comfort, Three's Company, Gidget, Flying Nun, WKRP, McHale's Navy, all those old shows. Some of the cable companies (at least Comcast, I think) carries that channel as well. The network is called Antenna TV. The Monkees reruns run Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 4pm EST, as I recall. -- Submitted By: (vickilaw) on July 22, 2012, 3:42 pm

I still love this show but it's obvious after reading this page that this show has jumped more times than can be counted. All of it though never really created a downfall, it was only momentary. The show lasted because it never really changed, it always felt like season 1 with a new wrapping - great for a long running show. -- Submitted By: (trigga415) on July 19, 2012, 4:11 pm

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (2002) - TV Shows
A friend got me a DVD collection of this updated series. In many ways it was better than the original: improved artwork, better storylines, much less cheesy. Characters were redesigned for the better (Ram-man was burly and tall instead of a midget with springy legs). Though I don't understand why Skeletor was barefoot this time around. Thanks, CN, for cancelling this so we could get crappy shows like Problem Solverz and Secret Mountain Fort Awesome instead. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 17, 2012, 3:12 pm

Addams Family, The - TV Shows
Might sound funny, but we could use a TV family like the Addams. Even though they were weird and mysterious, you can't deny that they didn't love each other. Gomez and Morticia are a shining example of a strong marriage after many years and they were good, albeit again strange, parents for their kids. They also showed that you can do your own thing and it's cool. People always tried to take advantage of their enormous fortune or find ways to get rid of them, but the friendly, non judging nature of the family basically drove people crazy and kept the Addams bond strong. With the high number of shows with broken families or families that just confirm to a certain behavior traits, we could use the influence of Gomez, Morticia and the clan, even if they are creepy and kooky. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 16, 2012, 3:14 pm

Alvin and the Chipmunks - TV Shows
When all the episodes were parodies of movies. By that point, it seemed like they were out of ideas and using movies as the basis of every episode was an easy way of continuing with new episodes. Not that I was ever a huge fan of this show. Too predictable. Alvin gets into trouble, Dave yells "Alvin!", they get out of the jam, they sing some kid friendly cover of an 80s hit, rinse and repeat. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 16, 2012, 3:04 pm

ABC World News - TV Shows
OK, I hate to comment two times in a row on a show, but I just saw the teaser for tonight's World News broadcast. On top of coverage of the over-dramatized airplane hijacking that wasn't to be, and coverage of the OUTRAGEOUS SCANDAL that the United States' Olympic uniforms are made in CHINA (whilst ABC creams itself in glee that it was the first to break this hard-hitting story), they're now covering Carly Rae Jepsen, yes that teenybopping brat who wrote that inspid "Call Me Maybe" song as its Person of the Week!!!

I enjoyed this show. Great chemistry between all the actresses, good writing, and yes it was ahead of its time in that it was one of the first successful shows with an all over 50 cast. Some of the things are dated, but compared to some sitcoms of the 80s, which was a terrible decade for TV (outside of this show, Cheers and Cosby), it hasn't aged as noticeably.

We Got It Made - TV Shows
I remember when this show came out ... it struck me as a lame attempt by NBC to cash in on the success of Three's Company (which was on rival network ABC, of course), but changing the gender balance to try to appear original and using Teri Copley as eye candy to hook viewers. Ms. Copley actually did an adequate job in the eye-candy role to which she was relegated, but it wasn't nearly enough to keep the show going. Small wonder it only lasted one season. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on July 10, 2012, 8:26 am

Fairly OddParents, The - TV Shows
This one is up to debate, but the live-action movie "Grow Up Timmy Turner" could be candidate for a "Bone to fish" moment. If Darran Norris was right on target to perform Dad in live-action since he gived his voice in the cartoon. However there was no cameo of Dinkleberg it all! Also, instead of Hugh Magnate, the main vilain should had been Remy Buxenplenty. And the ratings was good then they'll make another live-action special, this time a Christmas special. I wonder if Drake Bell's career might bone the fish as well? -- Submitted By: (Sailorchevy) on July 9, 2012, 9:53 am

That '70s Show - TV Shows
I've just watched the first four seasons and for the most part have enjoyed it (Save for the Musical episode...shudder). However the Fez overload got to be a bit much. He had a lot of funny moments, don't get me wrong, but he was overexposed at times, and it got annoying how the audience would piss themselves at his every line, even if it was just a "hello." Overall though, those first few seasons have pretty been funny. -- Submitted By: () on July 8, 2012, 11:28 am

Greed - TV Shows
I preferred Greed to Millionaire simply because Chuck Woolery was a far superior host to Regis Philbin. He played the part well and made you feel you were watching contestants make a deal with the devil instead of some cheesy camera hog, so he was a perfect fit for the show. The trouble was that the format was kind of rushed, there were no millionaires, and the show dragged on. If they tried to do this show again now with some minor changes, it might have a chance. -- Submitted By: () on July 8, 2012, 9:17 am

Robin Roberts. I know she's been a great spokeswoman for cancer awareness, but I cannot stand her. She is just loud, annoying to listen to, and a poor fit for the program.

You think it's unfair when Spike/Butch tore Tom a new one when it was Jerry who caused the problems? Watch one of the Deitch episodes: in the BBQ episode for example, the man has a short temper, and it wasn't uncommon to see him attack Tom for something trivial. While most episodes were "Jerry outwits Tom", the dreaded Deitch ones were "Jerry gets Tom into trouble and Tom gets the snot beat out of him". -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 3, 2012, 2:54 pm

Matt Lauer is a fake and a phoney. He makes Bryant Gumbel almost look like a good guy. He's gotten so condescending and arrogant over the past few years. You'd think he'd remember when he was a lowly news reader like Ann and was given a chance to host, but no. Ann wasn't a terrific hostess and honestly probably was a better fit as a news reader, but she deserved a longer shot. She's always seemed nice and genuine, unlike most of the phonies on TV.

Never boned in its original version, that is the version with all the original music. On the DVD set, they even edited out scenes where a character casually sings a popular song. And they even replaced the doorbell that played "Fly Me to the Moon." I think that's taking things too far. At least on the Happy Days sets which have a lot of music replacements themselves, they were able to keep at least some original music and Richie still gets to sing "I found my thrill..." -- Submitted By: (JayD) on July 1, 2012, 11:01 pm

She's the Sheriff - TV Shows
I remember seeing a oouple of episodes of this show when it first aired. It was obviously just a vehicle for re-starting Suzanne Somers' career, i.e., exhuming it from the grave she dug for herself when she left Three's Company, and then hoping the "eye-candy sheriff" angle would bring in the ratings. Even when I was a hormone-ridden twentysomething, that wasn't enough to keep my interest. I'm surprised the show lasted beyond one season.

Never liked this show. Tony Danza is one of the worst actors to grace my TV screen, and the writing and acting was some of the worst I've seen. Hard to believe Katherine Helmond went from a terrific role on Soap to this piece of trash. Honestly, ABC sitcoms in the 80s-90s were the worst.

So now you are "betting" that reactions to people you don't know match up to your opinion of a commercial for a show you didnt watch, and know very little about except for a soundbite, other people telling you about it and or commercial/promo material. I know it hurts to look foolish and be wrong about one of the greatest tv shows of all time, But keep on trying to spin this one. "Well if it is stupid, then I'm right, but I wont watch it, but I'll comment on what I think of it anyway, and someone told me it wasnt a good show, but I never saw it". But if someone buys the Shield on dvd, they are a "sucker" because you heard it was no good.

Wonder Years, The - TV Shows
stryker73 is spot on! I really liked this show in reruns, but I end up turning the channel on many of the episodes where Kevin is (again!) obsessing over Winnie. For a male pubescent in the late 1960s to be that "loyal" to one chick seems ludicrous, and Winnie sure wasn't reciprocal! She threw Kevin over for other guys more than once. Kevin had a chance to be with that "Madeline" girl in one ep and pushes her away at the end to chase Winnie (again!). Truly one of the most "Jesus Christ are you kidding me?" moments in TV history. Madeline was a fox! Winnie was average cute at best. I also think it was somewhat realistic the way Paul Pfeiffer is more "recurring" in later seasons. That's how real life can be. Sometimes, you and the kid you palled around with in JHS make different friends in HS, and that's what happened with Kevin. Kevin's new friends didn't take to Paul, and this was addressed in one episode when they were planning a trip, and Kevin's new friends Chuck and Jeff (Giovani Ribisi) tell him they don't plan to invite Paul. Kevin is torn between wanting to fit in with his new friends, and his loyalty to his childhood friend (I guess Paul was no Winnie), so I had less of a problem with Kevin diversifying his friends. I just wish they could have diversified his dates. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 29, 2012, 5:04 pm

Yeah, I also preferred the Chuck Woolery version. He put this show on the map, then it went commercial with the prime time slot, and all that "what will Vanna wear tonight?" BS advertising in the mid-1980s. I must be sick or something because I never thought she was all that to begin with, and now she just looks haggy. I also agree that the Chuck Woolery version's theme music was better. I still remember that tune.

Welcome Back Kotter - TV Shows
It started to bone when Julie gave birth to the twins / Gabe & Julie moved to the new appartment. No more suprise visits from the sweathogs letting themselves in through the open windows (always thought it was hilarious how they would just show up like that anytime they felt like it), and no more opening / closing "uncle" jokes. This was the beginning of the end, but what really sent this show hurtling toward cancellation was the Season 4 changes! Barbarino being gone (except for 8 shows) was bad, but Kotter being gone (except for 8 shows) was WORSE! This show was Gabe Kaplan's concept (with Alan Sacks). How could you do most of a season without the show's creator and star? I think history would have been a lot kinder to this show if 1/4 of the episodes weren't rendered total garbage by picking this up for a 4th season. It's certainly one reason it hasn't been more successful in reruns. Once you get to season four you stop watching, and by the time it comes around again to season one, both the viewers and the channel showing it have moved on. Even the season 4 episodes that included Kotter and Barbarino were weak, and often done having them appear in only one scene with one other cast member via sloppy editing / splicing that was clearly taped separately from the rest of the episode. When they knew they were only going to have Kaplan and Travolta for only 8 episodes for season 4, they should have cancelled this. Beau should have been unnecessary, but he certainly didn't help things either. I'm sure it came down to producer James Komack wanting to milk this dying franchise for all it was worth at the time, but was that wise? I think it would have brought him more royalties in reruns without that awful 4th season dragging down the overall quality. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 29, 2012, 4:24 pm

I always thought those "Czech" ones were actually far eastern. Animation looks like it was done in China or Japan, but I'll take your word for it as I've never really looked that up. Whatever it was, "New Kid In Town" goes along with it. Exactly who was that short tempered baldy who's always beating the crap out of Tom? Just as "Itchy & Scratchy" becoming friends was based on what was done to Tom & Jerry in the 70s, I think the introduction of "Poochie" into I&S was based on T&J adding the short tempered bald guy during the Czech (Czecho-Slovakian then?) years. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 28, 2012, 2:55 pm

It's bad enough that this goes on, but a show like this only serves to give such people free publicity and encourage them further. Sometimes, the social responsibility card really is the right one to play. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 28, 2012, 2:47 pm

Three's Company - TV Shows
I couldn't bring myself to vote "Chrissy leaves". I voted "Never Boned". For one thing, I found her replacement, Priscilla Barnes, to be infinitely more attractive (and versatile; check out some of her porn scenes that are available on line). For another, Suzanne Sommers' and her idiot husband's egos had grown so huge I found myself almost glad when she quit and the "ordeal" was finally over. Consider that this unfolded during my teenage years in "real time" and without the internet or gazillion channels as a diversion, Suzanne's whining got old real fast. The episodes with Jennilee Harrison, where Chrissy's only in the last two minutes talking to Janet on the phone, just to make her earn her "credit", were so obviously being done to work around the hatred Suzanne had spawned on the set from her co-stars that the believability factor was in the toilet. They should have left that out and let her have her stinking credit. I still want those minutes back. The choice ultimately became either "cancel the show" or "fire Suzanne and get someone else in here". I think they made the right choice. Priscilla was very sexy, and let's face it, John Ritter was the REAL STAR of this show. If it was him having problems, I'd say cancel it, because he was a talented actor who did physical comedy well. Suzanne Sommers? She was glorified eye candy and not much more. Not much of an actress either IMO. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 28, 2012, 2:34 pm

Three Stooges, The - TV Shows
Even though Curly was my favorite (exactly how many shirts is he wearing in that "Niagara Falls" bit?), it didn't really "bone" until Shemp died. I'm not even sure if Curly died before Shemp. I know that Curly lived for a while after leaving the show due to a stroke, and actually has a cameo appearance in a "Shemp" ep. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 28, 2012, 2:20 pm

The $1.98 Beauty Show - TV Shows

Tabitha - TV Shows
Boned on Day 1. The worst was when Tabitha tries to summon Dr. Bombay, and her "aunt" tells her that "calling Dr. Bombay", as Samantha used to say, doesn't get it done anymore, and you have to shout the obnoxious "HEEEEEEY BOMBAAAAAAYYYYY!" instead. As if the guy wasn't already always complaining over being interrupted scuba diving or whatever. I also remember hearing that the Kravitzes reprised their roles in an episode and Abner looked way to old and sick to be still working in TV. Sounds even more depressing than Dick York's "Fantasy Island" appearance. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 28, 2012, 12:00 pm

Star Trek: The Animated Series - TV Shows
Never boned, although it comes close with the orange, multi-limbed creature sitting next to Sulu on the bridge. I think his name was "Lieutenant Arricks" or "Arracks". That's a "new kid in town" deal, sort of, but he was in from the beginning of the animated show. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 28, 2012, 10:54 am

"Spectre of The Gun" is my favorite episode. Love how evil the Earps are. I understand they were scumbags in IRL, especially at the OK Corral, so maybe it was more historically accurate than we were lead to believe at the time. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 28, 2012, 10:44 am

Shield, The - TV Shows
Chubby, I did make it a point not to vote on it because I never watched it. I don't think that would be fair, so in that sense I am giving it the benefit of some doubt. I don't like the whole premise of turning "bad cops" into anti-heroes, whether they got what they had coming in the end or not. I bet most of the watching audience felt sorry for them, or at least some of them. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 28, 2012, 10:33 am

Wonder Years, The - TV Shows

Six Million Dollar Man - TV Shows
Parker -- The explanation for the "badness" of the Bionic Woman episodes of "The Six Million Dollar Man" was that when it was originally aired, the episode only had two parts. Jaime died at the end of part 2, and that was that. Then, the executives saw the stellar ratings for that two parter, and decided to make a spin off featuring Jaime. That's why the third part feels awkward -- because the first two parts weren't originally written with it in mind. I'm old enough to remember when this was aired in first run (only the first two parts), and then when it was aired again at the beginning of the next season -- suddenly with a third part that it didn't have the season before! -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on June 27, 2012, 4:23 pm

Shield, The - TV Shows
Parker- so you are going to bash the Shield, as not a true picture of what bad cops are like- and then say you never watched the show? It's probably one of the greatest TV shows of all time, and there was no "winner" at the end, the "Team" all definitely got what they had coming to them. The main characters were criminals, that happened to be cops. Try giving it a watch sometime, and discover TV writing at a high level. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on June 27, 2012, 5:26 am

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
I think the "contrived" Carmela / Furio romance in the virtually insufferable season 4 was the initial "boning point". I get a lot of the other complaints here....really I do.....including the Russian, too many dream sequences, Melfi's rapist etc., but all those things combined weren't as insufferable as the "non-romance" that never went anywhere and often seemed like it was done to kill the time regular networks reserve for commercials. Glad that storyline died, but not glad that it resulted in another unresolved plot (Furio gets "Chuck Cunningham'd"). Season 5 was an improvement over season 4, and actually gave me hope for Season 6, which ended up being in vain. I did however take exception to one season 5 ep which was wasted on a dream sequence with the only "plot" being Chris telling Tony S. that Tony B. had "whacked" Billy Leotardo at the very end. Season 6 was the final "boning" insult, from several episodes being wasted on Tony's shooting (complete with dream sequences) and other unimportant characters. For instance, why did "Eugene" have a one-off ep revolving around him in the last season when the purpose of it was to wrap things up? What was the point? A lot of "crap" in season 6 could have been forgone, and then they might have had time to come up with less of a cop out ending. Also, while I have nothing against Dominic Chianese as a singer, there's a reason "singing" was a JTS category. It's BORING and adds nothing to the plot, especially in non-musicals! I think the last 10 minutes of the season 3 finale were spent listening to him sing, with Meadow's "dissing" of him doing little to save the scene. Again, was this time regular networks use to go to commercial? That episode effectively ended 10 minutes sooner than the closing credits. Nothing else "plotworthy" could have been snuck in there? OK, enough ranting. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 26, 2012, 4:17 pm

Small Wonder - TV Shows
There's a reason this show aired as long as it did in spite of being bad on a level rivaling.....well, this was bad enough not to have rivals. In any case, this was one of the first "Fox sitcoms" to be produced by the then-fledging "fourth network". There was a whole batch of them that premiered during that time period with only "Married....With Children" emerging as a success. Hard to believe the network that gave us Al Bundy also came up with this tripe. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 26, 2012, 12:00 pm

True Jackson, VP - TV Shows
As... Well, as extraordinarily STUPID as the premise of this show is (a teenage vice-president, are you kidding me?), it actually wasn't all that bad of a show. I'm forced to show a modicum of respect for Keke Palmer, who cut her acting teeth here; in addition, the show was kept from being about a group of bratty, whiny, spoiled teenagers. Even if they are basically stupid teenagers. But, True Jackson, VP went the way of iCarly and Hannah Montana before it: A stupid show, with a stupid plot-line, inexperienced actors, peppered with guest stars, aimed at tween girls, will inevitably become unbearably silly. -- Submitted By: (Oleander29) on June 26, 2012, 11:58 am

Sledge Hammer! - TV Shows
I remember this show. It aired back when police brutality was still considered to be a bad thing that should only be glorified in jest/parody......in other words before "The Shield" made police brutality cool. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 26, 2012, 11:55 am

Six Million Dollar Man - TV Shows
I think it boned during the multi-part episode where Jamie Summers is made into The Bionic Woman. The episode itself wasn't so bad, but they had Jamie clinically "die" at the end of Part 2 I believe, and you see a grieving Steve Austin leave the hospital. Then at the beginning of Part 3, a specialist shows up at the 11th hour as the white knight who can "save Jamie", except she already died. OK, people have clinically died and been resucitated before, even in the 1970s, but geez if they were still working on her why is Steve calling "game over" and walking out? Then Steve finds out she's alive by accident when he's injured, goes to the hospital, and only half-concious spots her in recovery.....and this was kept from him until then why? Seems really jokie by today's standards even though this was the ep that spawned The Bionic Woman series. Honorable mention goes to "Special Guest Star....Larry Czonka"(?) -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 26, 2012, 11:51 am

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
I was looking for the ep where they changed how Homer and Marge met. Good thing I googled "That 90's Show" before voting.....and to that category I say HELL YES! I realize there have been other shows with disconinuity issues where I voted "Never Boned", like "The Odd Couple", but those discontinuities didn't have Oscar and Felix having met under circumstances that occurred FOUR PRESIDENTIAL ADMINISTRATIONS APART! Honestly, with all the episodes they've come up with over all these years, they should have passed on this one.....and this is exactly the sort of crap that will be seen in syndicated reruns while the original (and far superior) 1974-set episode will be shelved so viewers won't be "confused" by the discontinuity, but the best way to achieve that is to limit the discontinuity...duh! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 26, 2012, 11:42 am

That '70s Show - TV Shows
I enjoyed every season of That 70s Show, though I do agree that the quality declined after Hot Donna became a blond, and was even worse when Eric left. A note on Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: In addition to Tina Pinciotti's disappearance (which was unfortunate, but there were already more than enough characters), Midge mentions Donna's older sister Valerie in one episode. Laurie and Midge both fly in, fly out, fly in again; Midge's return being most improbable as she, a (partially) liberated woman and now divorcee returns to fight over her ex-husband. As Bob goes through Midgey withdrawal, he finds comfort in Jackie's mother (a different actress than Jackie's mother in the first season, by the way) and in Joann; both actresses promptly disappear. If I remember correctly, even Leo disappears for a while. These secondary characters didn't take too much away (we still had the necessary Red and Kitty, Eric and Donna, Kelso and Jackie, Hyde and Fez), but when the show suddenly ripped from us two of our main eight characters, that's when it boned. -- Submitted By: (Oleander29) on June 26, 2012, 11:41 am

Sigmund and the Sea Monsters - TV Shows
I just read that in Season 2 the sets burned in a fire and Zelda (Mary Wickes) left the show.

Shield, The - TV Shows
Nothing can make me smile like a show that glorifies a unit of cops set up to violate every constitutional right known to man.......and just to make sure people buy into this atrocity, we'll portray the criminals as being the kind of despicable lowlives who's rights you'd like to see violated. Unfortunately, that's not the true picture people. Wake the hell up. As usual, I didn't vote on this one because I never watched it. The coming attractions that seemingly glorify police brutality and other "Rodney King like" beatings was enough for me to pass on it. I'm betting that's why it doesn't have any "sucked on day 1" votes, because most decided it sucked on day 0 and didn't bother, as I didn't. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 26, 2012, 11:15 am

Brady Bunch Hour, The - TV Shows
Since Jan made the original Brady Bunch for me, and then we had no Eve Plumb for the Brady Bunch Hour, then the answer to this is pretty clear. It would have been better off with 5 kids. New Jan aside, the show was crap. -- Submitted By: (Oleander29) on June 26, 2012, 11:14 am

Barney & Friends - TV Shows
I don't think that we, as adults (and by adults, I mean people who have long outgrown Barney), have much right to talk about how bad the show is/was. It's... Well, yes, it's extremely annoying. But little kids like it. I liked it. My parents were glad to put it on for me, and I enjoyed watching it; it was a huge staple of my TV time. It boned when they brought out two more annoying dinosaurs; one big giant possible-pedophile dino was bad enough. -- Submitted By: (Oleander29) on June 26, 2012, 11:08 am
