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.

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
Never jumped or boned the fish! One of the best shows ever. In fact it actually improved each time someone new was brought in ,which is very unusual for a tv show. Most other shows start going down the tubes when someone from the main cast leaves. It was very good from day one and was good or great until the show ended (maybe 2 or 3 episodes were poor, but considering the show ran for 11 seasons I think that's a pretty dang good). -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on November 28, 2012, 6:06 pm

Game, The - TV Shows
When Derwin kept cheating on Melanie, when Melanie started sleeping with almost all the cast members (i'd even dare to say Brit Brat would have been her next conquest if she'd been older), when Malik went from funny spoiled mama's boy to being a total jackass, when Tasha went from sassy to being a straight up bitch, when "McHottie" made his first appearance here, ETC....the show boned so many times that i can't even pinpoint exactly when it was. Janay and Mel become best friends and Janay comes over to eat dinner at their house?? Seriously. So much unrealistic stuff and so many unexplained resolutions prior. They didn't question DJ's paternity until after he was like 2 and a half?? If you were ever a big fan of The Game then u may understand the "WTF" moments i mentioned here. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on November 28, 2012, 11:36 am

Parent 'Hood, The - TV Shows
One of my friends used to write for "The Parent 'Hood", and although he appreciated the opportunity and he said Mr. Townsend is a good-hearted guy, he did not like writing for the show because ANY time he had written a plot for the show, Townsend and one of the directors ALWAYS wanted to stick some after school/preachy message in the middle of it. To the point where the show became "The Cosby Show: Reloaded". If somebody told a lie in an episode (like Zaria getting detention) at the end of the show u could expect to see the whole family gathered on the couch smiling and talking about the effects of telling lies and how it can ruin lives and lead to drug abuse, etc. Enough already. I like Townsend, and so does my friend but it became too preachy and that in itself was off putting. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on November 28, 2012, 11:23 am

Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The - TV Shows
I used to really enjoy this as a kid and i still catch it sometimes when it's on, but now that i'm older I really notice how fucking campy it really is. I'm not saying it's terrible at all but it's kind of average & formulaic. Typical episode, Will disses Carlton's height, Phil's weight, Hilary's dim wittedness, etc. I mean i'm no prude or anything, and definitely have a good sense of humor, but it's really repetitive and the only thing anybody ever picks on Will about is his ears and that's only once in a blue moon. Like the viewers are supposed to see Will as being perfection personified. Lol. Like the episode about Will being accepted into Princeton, or the episode where Will took all the attention from Carlton for being so great at basketball. It's like can Carlton ever have his moment for once? They made him look like the ultimate loser and like Will was Jesus Christ reincarnated. It became overkill with all the Will ass-kissing in my book. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on November 28, 2012, 10:38 am

America's Next Top Model - TV Shows
One of the biggest mistakes was they got rid of Janice and then she was replaced by Twiggy. Twiggy would have been good for some British competition but this is ANTM. But even with her on the panel, seasons 5 & 6 were still entertaining, especially the latter. What really started to make it go downhill was some of the girls. Believe it or not, the girls on the show do partially determine how interesting/uninteresting a cycle might be. Cycle 6 had Danielle, Jade, Furonda, Joanie, Nnenna, etc. They were funny and not boring. I can barely remember any of the girls in any of the cycles after that. The show should have ended on a good note after Danielle won Cycle 6 but Tyra continued to drag out and squeeze every dollar she could out of ANTM. Now it's on about Cycle 307 and she's gotten rid of both of the J's & Nigel. The ratings are now going to be lower than Paris Hilton's IQ. I hate to see a show that was once funny & entertaining become such a shell of it's former self and completely go down the drain but it boned a long time ago, pass the tartar sauce. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on November 28, 2012, 10:30 am

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
The Simpsons remain my favorite show ever. However, there have been times when I have been disappointed with the show,but considering it has been on the small screen for over 20 years I can overlook a few off episodes ever now and then. I will agree that the show doesn't have the emotional impact that it had in early seasons and is more driven by comedic puns and oddball storylines today, but it still is a great show. It's not as popular as it once was and I don't expect it to keep going much longer, but I will keep enjoying it while it last and then still watch it in reruns and on dvd. If i were to list one major gripe I have with the show it is the guest star factor, which normally adds nothing good to the show. -- Submitted By: (JMoose) on November 28, 2012, 5:57 am

Show lost alot of it's appeal to me shortly after Steve left. The Bundys didn't have anybody else to contrast with. Marcy was reduced to a horny business woman who acted too much like the Bundys.

Everything that has ever gone wrong at any school in America has gone wrong at Winslow High within a four-year time frame. I don't think there was a clear jump the shark moment. I think it happened gradually in season 3. I feel like the focus was gradually shifted throughout the course of season 3, perhaps to market toward a more specific demographic, but I can't find a single defining moment like I can with most shows. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on November 26, 2012, 1:08 pm

Man, that was a FUN one. OK, for my preteen self it was fun but seeing clips as an adult, I understand it was a bit dumb. However; I have to give props to the trainers to somehow get those primates to perform their roles for what they were worth- without getting their own arms torn off as chimpanzees are surprisingly strong! I'm not sure it would work today nor would it be worth the risk to both the performers and trainers well beings to attempt it but it was a good curio for the time! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 24, 2012, 3:12 pm

Parker, I think Mr. Cooper[whoever he may have been] died on impact and likely never got to spend any of that money [as evinced by the fact that the only bills known to have been from that hijacking were found clumped+rotted in a riverbank years after the fact]. However; all that aside if that absurdity HAD happened as per your scenario, it WOULD have made an entertaining episode on 'To Tell the Truth'! Loved the classic version [with Peggy Cass, Bill Cullen, Kitty Carlisle with Garry Moore emceeing ]but didn't think the revived version was worth bothering with. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 24, 2012, 2:44 pm

Back in the "Scottish Site" days, my assessment of this waste of film was "Season 1, shark jumper; season 2, shark bait; season 3 (and, in retrospect, thereafter), chum slick."

Monkees, The - TV Shows
I wish I could agree with you, gagedesoto, but decades after the fact, I FINALLY saw [bits] of the movie "Head" and their '33 and 1/3 Revolutions per Monkee' TV specials. What a depressing,humorless,disturbing and pointless one-two punch those two proved to be re the band and the show! If one wants to see the bounty of the excesses of the 1960's shadowside, those two productions are IT! Ironically, for the determined forensic Monkee maniacs, there ARE a few scattered entertaining moments even in the latter production [e.g. Peter Tork playing Beethoven on the harpsicord, the band jamming to Nesmith's 'Listen to the Band' before being overwhelmed by needless additions] but it's no wonder Tork was burned out by this that he quit the group right after the latter even though he had to cough up over $100 thousand to do so. Nesmith hung on for a few more albums and some commercials before a final one for Nerf balls in which he sincerely declared 'E-Nerf's e-Nerf' while being pummelled by them. However; all was not lost for the group in that the three sans Nesmith rejoined in the 80's . And for the TV fans, Nesmith scripted a reasonably entertaining 1997 'update' 'Hey Hey We're the Monkees' in which all four characters were still at that Malibu pad, being friends, having adventures and making music [of course this contrasted with the performers actual lives in which the four had had varied careers, about a dozen wives and sixteen kids]. Thankfully, that special pretended "Head" and '33 and 1/3 Revolutions' had NEVER happened which is best for all concerned, IMO. Now of course, Mr. Jones is no longer with us and the three remaining ones including Nesmith are touring as of November, 2012. Considering the number of times they've been declared dissolved, I can't help but think it's likely they'll find ways to tour together off and on until the last survivor. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 3, 2012, 4:38 pm

SpongeBob SquarePants - TV Shows
I sat through a few newer episodes...they're really out of ideas. The plots are either lame (Gary meowing nonstop throughout an episode for snail treats), predictable (I was able to guess what would happen 9 out of 10 times. No joke!), or recycled from past episodes (Squid Baby was just Goo Goo Gas where only Squidward turned into a baby). In regards to a previous post mentioning Simpsons parallels, there are plenty: the stupid character who gets stupider with each passing season. The stupid character's progressive stupidity so overly forced as to be ridiculous. All the characters getting stupider. Digital ink and paint making the animation go from fluid to "militarily rigid" (thanks to Zombie Simpsons for that quote!). Recognizing themselves (one fish made a reference to "My Leg!" being a running gag). Acting out of character. Becoming parodies of themselves. Trying too hard to follow running gags (especially Mr. Krabs being obsessed with money). Voices becoming more and more high-pitched and whiny. Plots which have no purpose but to keep the show going. I think it's safe to call this new series "Zombie Spongebob". -- Submitted By: () on October 30, 2012, 11:05 pm

What I never got about this show were all the characters he played. The show was like two shows within a show. You had a show with Martin, Gina, his friends and their adventures then you had an off the wall show with Martin doing zany things with the other characters he played. I much preferred the former to the latter and when the show went more in the direction of the latter, it really started to become unwatchable. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 25, 2012, 5:09 pm

Chappelle's Show - TV Shows
A very funny series. I watched the two seasons so many times. I agree that the show was going in a direction that wasn't very positive and because the show is named Chappelle show. I understand why he backed out. The show took many risk in terms of racial insensitivity and with the 3rd season im sure producers wanted to take even more. The turning point for me really was when I heard a classmate explaining a joke from the show and he was repeating it word for word, n-word and everything. I know its a new age and it wasn't meant to offend me but it did kinda make me uncomfortable. Thats when I realized that the show wasn't so much a positive form of entertainment.

Martin is one of those shows that will remain funny for a long time despite being a 90's show. It definitely started dying with the whole harassment lawsuit issue and Martin movie career. Gina stopped being filmed in the same scenes as Martin, the jokes started getting sour, minor character's role increased, and martin just wasn't as lively anymore. If you watched the show then you know that it was really time for it to end in terms of story writing, I mean Martin changed careers, got married, and still ived in that apartment.. what else do we need to see? Him have kids?

Thankfully it didn't last long enough for that. Even "The Wonder Years" knew enough to make that only a passing reference most of the time.

I haven't seen a moment of this show. But if there's one thing I absolutely cannot stand, it's TV shows/movies set in the distant past where everyone acts just like people do today, with the clear message being "See? People have ALWAYS acted like this, therefore acting like this is perfectly fine!" And they genuinely expect the viewer to believe that half of all teen girls in the 50s were getting knocked up, or people cursed all the time in public in the 30s, or school shootings happened all the time in the 70s. It really is an especially insidious form of brainwashing. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 8, 2012, 8:36 pm

What's My Line? - TV Shows
A downright cool game show in which the panel would have to pinpoint via yes+ no questions what a contestant's vocation was or, in the case of Mystery Guests the panel would pinpoint who these stars were. What's interesting is that often one see women doing jobs/tasks few viewers would have imagined women doing back in the pre-liberated 1950's and 1960's so this unexpectedly helped broaden horizons. Also, it was interesting to see how contestants and panelists could keep their cool even in rather upsetting situations [e.g. a stage crasher attempted to disrupt the then hot Melina Mercouri's turn by attempting to pitch something on air which prompted a swift removal by the 'second unit'. Anyway, not only did Miss Mercouri keep her cool but NONE of the panelists considered taking off their blindfolds to see what had happened and all continued with the game without any further problems]. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 8, 2012, 8:20 pm

I loved Sesame Street as a kid, but when people care more about a TV station and a kids program than they do about our sluggish economy, ever growing debt, ever rising tax rate and a flawed health care plan, I have major concerns about our country. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 8, 2012, 6:04 pm

Big Bird & Co. don't need PBS anyways, and i can't remember the last time i even watched PBS. I'm sure if the plug did get pulled, Sesame Street would have no trouble finding another kid-oriented tv network..Nickelodeon maybe -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on October 8, 2012, 5:20 pm

yea there are only a few shows, like Roseanne and Fresh Prince, that survived cast changes like that..but rapid age, a major replacement, AND two minors? I'll have tartar sauce with that! -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on October 8, 2012, 5:10 pm

Laff-A-Lympics - TV Shows
Yes, other teams win. Even the Really Rottens! One thing puzzles me: The Gruesomes are given a palette swap, then cast as the Creeplies. The Really Rottens are supposed to be based on villains, but the Gruesomes weren't evil: they were just the Flintstones' creepy neighbors. Yet Mildew the wolf, who tries to eat Lambsy in each episode of "It's The Wolf!", IS a villain. But instead of being a Rotten, he's an announcer! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 7, 2012, 11:49 am

Last Man Standing - TV Shows
Better put this show on the BTF watch list when its second season premieres in November: There will be one cast change among the main characters, two among recurring characters, and, most ominously, they're age-advancing the baby from two to five. Sound yellow alert and arm the photon fish scalers, Mr. Sulu ... -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on October 3, 2012, 2:00 pm

Pelirojo, wasn't the long suffering wife the same actress who played Harriet DeLong, Carroll O'Connor's love interest on "In The Heat of The Night"? She was still beautiful even by then. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on October 1, 2012, 3:32 pm

Little House on the Prairie - TV Shows
I thought the football episode took place during that period when they lived in Winoka, not Walnut Grove. At least if it's the episode I'm thinking of where the kids who went to school in a barn played against the rich kids at the private school, including Mr. Standish's son. Didn't the barn kids win when a blind student, who was also strong as an ox, boosted / catapulted Albert over the goal line, thus "inventing the forward pass" (not really, but that's how they tried to spin it)? Maybe there were two football oriented episodes. I know baseball was around back then. The Brooklyn Dodgers franchise goes back to the 1870s. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on October 1, 2012, 3:30 pm

NFL Today, The - TV Shows
Had to add this. I recently got "NFL Network" added to my cable service, and they were showing some old footage of a guy getting interviewed on NFL Today by......Jayne Kennedy! First time I'd seen her since her gig ended back when.....surreal.....mere days after I mentioned her below. Wonder what she's up to now. It was an old clip to be sure. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on October 1, 2012, 3:19 pm

Homefront - TV Shows
Thanks Pelirojo. I read in the wiki article that Dear Abby and some others engaged in a letter-writing campaign to get this renewed for a 3rd season, as if this was "Star Trek TOS" or something (yeah RIGHT!). I have to wonder what it is about a patently unrealistic show that warrants such vehement support. Apparently this was also the reason TV Land chose to run it....it's cult "popularity". Maybe the reason it only had "cult" popularity was that most people saw it for the BS it was. It really bugged me too the way "Joan of Arc's" (perfect nickname for her) out of wedlock pregnancy was treated so matter of factly in the 1940s. I mean if that's how you want to treat it, DON'T SET THE SHOW IN THE 40s! This is why I SMH whenever someone who was born after 1980 tries to give me a history lesson. They're being taught a false version of the past in the hopes they won't repeat it, when in reality the way to avoid repeating it is not to forget what it was like! BTW, I saw plenty of critical comments about this show on the site that cannot be named. I think toward the end comments showing up in general got very "hit or miss". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on October 1, 2012, 3:13 pm

Buck Owens, Don Rich and Roy Clark were first class musicians that were just wasted on this farce. Some great musical guests, too. The rest of the show was pretty lame (even by 60's and 70's standards)! -- Submitted By: (jimdcarter) on September 28, 2012, 11:13 pm

Monkees, The - TV Shows
Very few shows, in my opinion, have never boned...Emergency, Monty Python's Flying Circus and The Monkees. Micky, Mike, Peter and Davy were not only cute but also funny and musically talented. Maybe those who say it did blames it on the music, that was arranged heavily at one time by Don Kirschner, when Don got fired and the Monkees took over. Maybe to them but for me it didn't because a song was featured in the episodes regardless if it was a huge hit or not and it was generally portrayed by the boys as mostly out of work musicians who weren't famous. -- Submitted By: (gagedesoto) on September 28, 2012, 2:45 pm

Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
Many would say that season 4 boned because John Cleese wasn't there but for me, it never did. Sure, the skits clearly reflected the visual writings of Terry Jones/Michael Palin but they were just as funy in their own right. Yes, it wasn't the same without John but it held up just fine for me despite that. :) -- Submitted By: (gagedesoto) on September 28, 2012, 2:32 pm

Psych - TV Shows
To me, the show boned it when Shawn and Juliet hooked up together. Not only does Shawn put down Lassie even worse with the insults, Juliet even thinks he's too much of a buffoon that she agrees with Shawn and sometimes even goes behind his back to help Shawn which aggravates me because she's supposed to be his partner. Worse, Carlton is looking more like an incompetent idiot than a Head Detective of the SBPD. I think one of the choices should be "When Shawn and Juliet Became Lovers" because that seemed to change the dynamics of the show. I still watch it though. -- Submitted By: (gagedesoto) on September 28, 2012, 2:07 pm

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! - TV Shows
I tried watching a couple of these on Youtube. They were even topics I WANTED to see get debunked-- PeTA, for their killing of animals and Martial Arts, for all the fraudulent instructors out there. These things were only briefly mentioned, if at all. Instead, I was treated to something more akin to a Michael Moore documentary; a smug fat guy that thinks he's funny (but isn't) interviewing only the lunatic fringe of the side he's against, and then editing the footage out of context to make the people look even dumber and himself smarter. And to that a dash of pointless cursing (because it's cable and he can) and even more pointless topless women at the end. Very disappointed. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 26, 2012, 12:08 pm

Emperor's New School, The - TV Shows
@Pelirojo: To be fair, The Emperor's New Groove was a comedy and wasn't supposed to be taken seriously (similar to Looney Tunes and, to an extent, Monty Python), as opposed to Pocahontas, which took itself very seriously. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on September 25, 2012, 5:51 pm

Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries - TV Shows
It never was any good. I say seek out the 1950's Hardy Boys serial on the original "Mickey Mouse Club" for as close as the REAL literary deal. Sherlock Holmes or even Miss Marple these series ain't but back in the day, they had their moments. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 25, 2012, 9:30 am

Homefront - TV Shows
THANK YOU, Parker Tillman! I tried to say the very same thing on the site that no longer exists but got shot down by folks saying that her doing all that made the show 'realistic'! The weird thing is that after this Joan of Arc Wannabee proverbially got caught with her knickers down was that she STILL droned these dogmas to her kids and yet not only did they not only not call her on her hypocrisy [as young people have been doing re hypocritical parents for ages ] but also her friends, neighbors,etc. treated her getting pregnant out of wedlock as a perfectly conventional thing. Yes, I know there have been nonmarital births from Day One but it was NOT considered the least bit conventional back in the late 1940's. This was but one of many instances in which they tried to inject 1990's POVs into a 1940's setting which all the costumes and hairstyles couldn't make legit. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 25, 2012, 9:27 am

Homefront - TV Shows
In case you didn't catch it up top: I thought this was a crummy show with a hypocrite for a main character / matriarch....an uber-Catholic widow who gets pregnant from an affair with a Jewish atheist in the 1940s. Say WHAT? How did this nonsense ever last two full seasons? Making matters worse, she's constantly moralizing (straight out of Catholic dogma no less) on her "near adult" offspring, even as her out of wedlock baby bump gets bigger by the week. Then she refused to marry the father (more uber-Catholic hypocrisy) because he's an atheist. Maybe before she slept with the guy without using protection (in the 1940s that's what I'm inclined to believe regardless of whatever else the writers of this tripe may try to put across) she should have checked for such deal breakers? I'm sorry, but I have a very low tolerance for "stupid", even when it's on the so called "idiot box". This show is insulting to Catholics, but the biggest insult is to people's intelligence. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 24, 2012, 11:23 am

Good Times - TV Shows
Yeah, the post-James / Janet Jackson episodes were awful cheesy. Just about every character had to have a "redeeming moment" from Alderman Fred Davis right on down to Mr. Bookman. Then you have Florida's "re-marriage, but maybe not". I guess Carl Dickson can go down in history as the first African-American sitcom character to be "Chuck Cunninghammed", or since he joined before disappearing, maybe he got "Poochied"? He must be honored! There's also "Singing" (Michael & Penny break into "I Got You Babe" - BARF the fish!). The "CB Radio" episode (Um...don't you need an antenna with that?). Thelma wanting to marry an African native named "Ebay" (no BS there - I laughed everytime I heard his name and yeah it's pronounced like the auction site too) who turns out to be a bigamist. Bad things man. I mean BAD things! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 24, 2012, 10:55 am
