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.

Star Trek: Voyager - TV Shows
I thought ST-TNG over used the holodeck to make up for weak story lines, but man, Voyager relied on the thing way too much! I can just see the writers sitting around after boxing themselves into a corner, someone yells, "let's make it a holodeck episode!" That is really lazy writing. Plus Janeway was a complete moron that couldn't captain her way out of a wet tissue if it wasn't for Chakotay bailing her out. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on March 28, 2013, 3:52 pm

Star Trek: Enterprise - TV Shows
They ignored their own premise. This was supposed to be a prequel to the original Star Trek and had fantastic potential and awesome opportunities to tell the whole building of Star Fleet story. Instead, they went wildly off course in the first season when they introduced the insanely convoluted temporal cold war story arc and later became obsessed with the Xindi. I lost interest in them after the first few episodes but they continued to beat this very dead horse week afetr week after week. They established in the pilot and first few episodes that the Vulcans did not like humans very much and did not want us to have warp tech. Why not develop that story line and show how we became friends? Enterprise did not really have anything to do with the other Star Trek series and completely ignored the Roddenberry Bible. I liked Archer and T'Pol but the show really, really, really was terrible. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on March 28, 2013, 3:41 pm

American Idol - TV Shows
This is the first year I refused to watch American Idol, mainly because of Nikki. Is she ever annoying. The way she speaks is like nails on a chalk board. Also, I got tired of the same old theme nights. There is always a Motown/Stevie Wonder week and invarably someone does "For Once In My Life," or "Higher Ground" done RHCP style. As I said in my previous post, this show has overstayed its welcome. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on March 28, 2013, 11:52 am

Huff - TV Shows
Are you kidding? This was one of the best shows ever on TV, cable or otherwise. Talk about a dream cast: Hank Azaria, Paget Brewster, Oliver Platt, Blythe Danner, Swoosie Kurtz, Anton Yelchin, Anjelica Huston, Annie Potts, and Tom Skerritt, all brilliant actors, not to mention the guest cast! I still can't believe this awesome show was cancelled after 2 seasons by a very, very, very shortsighted Showtime. It's legendary around my house and we still have two favorite quotes from the show: #1: Huff walks in on his wife and mother (Izzy) in the kitchen. The mother (Blythe Danner) leaves immediately through the back door. Huff: What the hell was Izzy doing here so early? Mrs Huff: Foraging for vodka. #2: Huff and Mrs. Huff are in bed discussing the revelation that their 14-year old son had attended a rainbow party, wherein the boy with the most different colors of lipstick on his penis (applied by the girl partiers) wins a prize. Huff: Who the hell invented the blow job party? Mrs. Huff: A man! Seriously, it was brilliant! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on March 27, 2013, 2:57 pm

Soul Train - TV Shows
In the later 70s episodes, the dancers start to digress. You can't blame disco music but when it came to the Soul Train line, there were more women doing a simple two-step instead of really moving. Anyway, I think when Louis Carr joined in the early 80s, it went further down. To his credit, I think MJ (RIP) stole that back kick-step he liked to do but otherwise, all this guy did was pose. There was even an episode where him and Crystal did some wave and hide thing in the ST line. What an insult to tradition! Had that been my show, I would have kicked them off permanently but he hung around until the 21st Century episodes.SAD. -- Submitted By: (jwswindell) on March 15, 2013, 9:29 pm

Pokemon - TV Shows
I never liked the show. I felt it just rode on the popularity of the games and completely changed one too many things from them. I'm not saying the show should have followed the games closely, I really felt the show could have gone off from the manga version of pokemon. That would have been a lot more interesting, but understandably, the manga is left and right and it does contain some content kids probably wouldn't like to see. I will say though, that Ash is such a stupid and a garnered lucky trainer. His Pikachu is completely overrated, if I could, I'd stomp that thing with Earthquake in the games to show how pitiful it is. Also, what is wrong with not evolving pokemon for some of the trainers in the show? Oh, because the first staged pokemon looks TOO cute to evolve into something that would appear ugly later on. Psh. -- Submitted By: (Toasticus) on March 5, 2013, 12:11 pm

Mythbusters - TV Shows
I liked it better when it was just Adam and Jamie. I mean, in all honesty, the additional cast members provided little to nothing to the show. They all felt like token characters, you had the asian guy, the white upbeat guy, and the female most eyes are going to be on whenever she's on screen. I will admit that she was pretty hot, but it served more as a distraction than anything. Then came the back to back explosions. "If we can't solve it or get frustrated, blow it up!" ends up being a last resort. This show still has the means to provide educational viewing, but it has really gone through rough spots. -- Submitted By: (Toasticus) on March 5, 2013, 12:00 pm

Batman Beyond - TV Shows
I don't really know what the point of this was, either. I remember at the time the fans wanted a Justice League cartoon (which they eventually got) and were upset that they went this direction. Whenever these shows try the timeskip to the future gimmick, it never seems to work. (Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, etc.) It's fun for an episode or two and then the novelty wears off fast. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on February 21, 2013, 5:54 pm

Scrubs - TV Shows
I'd have to say after season 4, when JD moved out of the apartment. It wasn't a huge jump, mind you, but more of a peaking, the point after which it was never as good.

Maybe you're both right. My recollection of this show was that while I saw certain eps, I really didn't understand much of what was going on having been elementary school age at the time.

D.C. Follies - TV Shows
Yes, well, at the time this aired, I would have known little to nothing about British programming. The puppets were incidental to the actual jokes being told, which really made the show. Case and point, I hated "Land Of Confusion" and thought Genesis should worry about their own problems on their own side of the pond instead of focusing on what they perceived as ours by dissing our President and his wife. Even without that, I doubt the British are able to lampoon American politics the way Americans can. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on February 20, 2013, 1:40 pm

Saturday Night Live - TV Shows
The last truly great time for SNL was the mid 90s. Will Ferrell and Tina Fey kept it going somewhat through the early 2000s, but once they left, the show just hasn't been the same. I mean, Justin Bieber for host? Really? They also have a problem in recent time with taking somewhat funny skits and beating them into the ground. Two aholes was funny the first time, but got old, as did "What's Up with That" and "The Californians." SNL could rebound again, but they've been on a down slope for about ten years now. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on February 19, 2013, 10:58 am

Drew Carey Show, The - TV Shows
I remember this show just getting really weird with a bunch of gimmick episodes, and that's about when I gave up on it. When I turned it back on, Drew was working as a lunch lady. Then, a year later, he was back at Winfred Louder. I couldn't take it anymore... Maybe that's why my opinion of both the show and of Drew Carey are not flattering. But, now, I'm giving it another shot. I'm watching the show in its entirety (or at least as much as I can take), and the first season isn't really that bad. When I reach the point where the show jumps the shark, I'll be back to vote. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on February 16, 2013, 10:40 am

I agree with the Joker. Terry McGuinness is not Batman. Though, I hate to admit I loved to see Batfake mess with Joker's head in that film...

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008 TV series) - TV Shows
Haven't seen more than just a few clips on youtube, but from what I've read in online comments the whole Clone Wars timeline is messed up, lots of plot discrepancies between this, the older CW series, the novels, and the movies. Fans do pay attention to those sort of things, and it doesn't seem too difficult to make sure there is plotline consistency. And yes, Anakin training another jedi is highly unlikely, the Jedi council obviously felt he was a loose cannon and would not have trusted him with someone else's training. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on February 15, 2013, 6:00 pm

Poor man's Double Dare is right! Nonetheless, I still watched it every morning before school for the 3-4 years it was on. There was also the adult version on in the evening with college students and an unknown (at the time) Greg Kinnear was hosting. Funny how much his fame has shot up from those salad days! The show was okay, but looking back at it, it wasn't anywhere near as good as Double Dare. Marc Summers was a far superior host to J.D. Roth (I don't like the lame "I'm hip" schtick that Roth used in his hosting) and the stunts/bonus round in Double Dare was just that much better. However, Fun House did beat Double Dare in two areas: the cheerleaders (they were smokin' hot!) and that water slide. That looked like a trip to go down. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on January 28, 2013, 6:21 pm

Soap - TV Shows
One of the most innovative, provocative and entertaining sitcoms ever created. The show was way ahead of its time with utilizing satire and pushing the envelope of censorship with certain characters and story lines. The show was ground breaking in many ways. The quality slowly eroded when characters left and the writers wrote some bizarre story lines, but even today, it stands as one of the most unique sitcoms in history. It's really too bad ABC went from greatness like this to the sitcom cheese it created in the 80s-90s. At least they found their creativity again with Modern Family. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on January 24, 2013, 10:33 am

I agree with the comments about winning being the downfall of the show. The show was at its best when Hayden and his staff were struggling and trying to win.

First of all, the fact that almost no one dies via bullets (a guy was sniped in a season 1 ep in an uncharacteristically dark moment for the show, and of course Fulbright bought the farm, as exactly no one says these days) is genius. People get comfortable with a formula, that's what TV is, your weekly fix, or daily if in syndication or on Netflix, etc. Also, the music and team-building montages were terrific. This is juvenile nonsense, almost insulting at times, unintentionally hilarious at others, but then again, it's a TV show. That's sort of what the best shows are. My kids love this show.

Happy Days - TV Shows
Just saw an episode from 1978 - on a local retro station - where Fonzie goes blind from being hit with a tray. This was a couple of seasons after the show jumped the fish, so one would not expect much. It was a surprise, though, just how horrid the writing was. The next episode aired was when Henry Winkler's character rode a bull to save some kind of a dude ranch owned by Marion's "Uncle Ben." By this time, the shows were centering more and more on the ridiculous Fonzie while everyone else was pretty much pushed to the back burner. Later, the show went into a complete nosedive as Richie joined the Army and Fonz got married and had Heather O'Rourke. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on January 10, 2013, 7:27 pm

Drew Carey Show, The - TV Shows
The show peaked in about 2001, until Drew met his nephew in his coma, and from there it was a steep decline: Kate leaving, Steve leaving, Never Ending Store, King Gus' speedy aging. I couldn't even bear to watch the last few season, though the little-seen finale was actually decent, bringing back original writers to bring the show back to where it was in 1996. -- Submitted By: (WalterSobchak) on January 8, 2013, 3:28 am

How I Met Your Mother - TV Shows
I'm surprised how well the show has held up for me. It is dragging out the premise a bit, but assuming they wrap it up well in the next season and a half it could remain never boned to they end. That may be too many episodes and introducing the mother too soon could kill it too. If they go beyond a ninth season it is sure to get boned. I actually like the trajectory of the Barney character. He showed plenty of signs of having a heart of gold from the beginning and the transformation has been believable. In many ways the show is less about Ted and more about Barney. -- Submitted By: (moloko5) on January 5, 2013, 9:14 pm

How I Met Your Mother - TV Shows
Why can't a gay actor play a straight playboy? How often do straight actors play great gay characters? It's called "acting" for a reason. -- Submitted By: (moloko5) on January 5, 2013, 9:07 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
I agree that it boned it when the Connor's won the lottery. It was losing momentum already with Roseanne getting a gig on the local news to give a "blue collar perspective" among other things, a "very special heart attack," but the lottery win was really the bone it moment. It's one of the better examples, actually. I thought the finale would have been very lame for most shows, but it was a touching finale for Roseanne in that it kind of saved the soul of the show. The Roseanne character was revealed to be a shitty writer, but what happened with the characters "in reality" in the end was much more consistent with where the narrative should have gone. -- Submitted By: (moloko5) on January 5, 2013, 8:49 pm

Office, The - TV Shows
For me, I didn't envision the show lasting past Steve Carell leaving. It's a simple matter: Despite the fact that The Office functions as an ensemble show, Michael Scott was the emotional crux of the plot. Even if he wasn't always the focus, he was the one you remembered. Even when he was trying to be the center of attention, what he was doing was highlighting how wonderful all these other characters were. With Michael gone, the other characters had to be shifted in characterization because no one had this all-important role in the ensemble anymore. I stopped caring about these characters and their lives. Why? Because Michael Scott cared about them most of all, and he made me care about them in the process. Without him, the rest of the characters are irrelevant. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on January 3, 2013, 8:25 pm

You ready, Olmec? LET'S ROCK AND ROLL. Loved this show. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on January 3, 2013, 8:21 pm

Roundhouse - TV Shows
Roundhouse for me was a superior kid-oriented sketch comedy show, much better than All That. The cast was multi-talented and energetic. The unfortunate death of cast member Dominic Lucero changes the legacy of the show indefinitely, but I think if the show had continued, it would be one of those truly unforgettable and easily recognized Nick shows like Clarissa Explains It All or Rugrats, instead of being the more unsung cult classic that it is. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on January 3, 2013, 8:20 pm

Entourage - TV Shows
I LOVE watching an entire cast fight desperately for screentime while undeserving of any of it. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on January 3, 2013, 8:17 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
Surprised that I didn't see anyone mention the episode where Skinner turned out to be a completely different person. That was terrible. They ripped on that later when they killed Fat Tony and had him replaced. Those were low moments on the show. -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on January 1, 2013, 5:17 am

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
One of the things that strikes me odd while reading some of the comments and reasons on the boned when...list is that most of the people commenting have not really watched alot of episodes and just use sites like these as a soap box to spew their politics. If they really watched the show often enough they would know the show's history of lampooning both major politcal partys. Having gotten that out of the way i would point out mini-btf moments (not complete btf moments because I think the show is still great). I had mentioned guest stars appearing too often on the show which is bad, but the worst is when the guest stars get a completely different reaction from the main characters then they should. The first time I really noticed that was on a really good episode that had Micheal Jackson voicing a huge white man that claimed he was MJ. While the episode was a good one the thing that annoyed me some was that Bart thought MJ was awesome instead of mocking him(which is what the character would have really done). The most cringe worthy guest star moment for me came when they had N'Synch on. Both Nelson(the main bully on the show) and Bart were excited to see them. Nothing against N'Synch, but come on they were a boyband aimed at teen and pre-teen girls and not young boys (ok, Milhouse and Ralph would probably like them, but certainly not Bart and Nelson). -- Submitted By: () on January 1, 2013, 5:12 am

Regular Show - TV Shows
I recently watched a few of episodes of this show. Very bizarre, but very funny at the same time. As you watch each episode (at least the ones I saw) you find yourself momentarily wondering how do these two losers (Mordecai & Rigby) manage to maintain a normal friendship with one another, but you're laughing so much you quickly dismiss the thought and just want to see how it all ends up. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on December 27, 2012, 1:06 pm

Adventures of Superman - TV Shows
jimdcarter, OK, you got me on timing re the show's cancellation and Reeves death. However; Hollywood has had more talk of series' revivals and pick ups than stars on Hollywood Blvd and only a tiny portion actually have gone into production so my contention that Reeves died after the last episode of the original show had been produced stands. I apologize in advance for sounding cold here but,as unquestionably tragic as it was and however much we may be tempted to speculate on what might have been re a possible future revival, the fact remains that his death had NO impact on the original show itself when it first aired because it was over by the time of his death. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 19, 2012, 12:57 pm

Seinfeld - TV Shows
The finale episode is actually pretty good. It probably gets bashed alot, because it was so hyped that it couldn't fullfull people's expectations. As a show I don't think it ever boned. Alot of people point to Larry David leaving, but I think it was still a great show until the very last episode. -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on December 19, 2012, 6:26 am

Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - TV Shows
I'd rather have Fat Albert than Sponge Bob any day. The show was full of good morals and music, and the kids of today should watch old Fat Albert cartoons instead of any of the newer cartoon shows that are full of gross out gags. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on December 17, 2012, 5:38 pm

Adventures of Superman - TV Shows
Pelirojo- the series ended in 1958. Goerge Reeves died in 1959, at a time when they were in negotiations to bring back the show. Had George lived, the show almost certainly would have continued for at least a season or two. -- Submitted By: (jimdcarter) on December 16, 2012, 10:20 pm

Storage Wars - TV Shows
What previous commenters have stated has been verified by an ex-cast member. The show is fake. So don't worry about any poor souls losing valuable items-- those "treasures" were all planted by the producers. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 16, 2012, 7:24 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
Is this still on? I loved The Simpsons for the first 10 years or so, but it became incredibly stale after that! Talk about OVERKILL!!! Somebody please put this rotten fish out of it's misery ASAP. This would have been an all time classic show, had they known when to quit wile they were ahead. -- Submitted By: (jimdcarter) on December 16, 2012, 12:45 am

WCW Monday Nitro - TV Shows
To add on the Sting-Hogan Starcade '97 match, from what I have read, Sting hadn't really held his end of the bargain up close to the match, coming in out of shape, hurt, and somewhat not prepared. Then again, I had read that from Eric Bischoff's book that I had gotten awhile back, so take that for what it's worth, especially since Hogan and Bischoff are buddies. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 14, 2012, 1:57 pm

Hooperman - TV Shows
I really enjoyed this show.A good mix of comedy and drama that didn't get enough time to find it's audience. It's sad that it didn't last longer than it did. Much better than Three's Company for which most people remember John Ritter (oddly enough I think that was the worst show I saw him in). -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on December 11, 2012, 5:18 am
