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.

Modern Family - TV Shows
I'm going on record to predict that season 4 will be the boning moment of this show. Why? First, new baby. Second, more and more emphasis on guest stars. Third, puberty is becoming more and more noticeable on the kids. I saw the season premiere and was less than impressed. The jokes are starting to seem more and more forced and the whole thing seems slightly recycled. I hope I'm wrong. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on October 10, 2012, 5:46 pm

Overall decent, but there were some dumb episodes here. Who remembers the one about the famous play producer who had a nervous breakdown after the death of his wife and Jill Eikenberry walks in on trying to ride his desk chair like a horse in his underwear? That was an "interesting" scene. How about the "Salamander", a washed up superhero who couldn't get past his identity crisis and almost kills himself trying a courtroom stunt in character? "Salamander Salamander Onward Ho!" It guess that would be kinda funny if the premise wasn't so sad. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on October 9, 2012, 4:14 pm

Joanie Loves Chachi - TV Shows
OK, "most" people agree this show skd from day one, but what about specific stuff that you hated about it? I recall that one of the members of their "band" was this frizzy-longish-haired space cadet. Seeing this guy all I could think was "Good God! Don't tell me they're going to try to inject the drug culture into a show revolving around Happy Days characters!" 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. In the proper context it's OK, but to have it just for the sake of having it is a bone......kinda like the AIDS storyline in "Life Goes On". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on October 9, 2012, 4:01 pm

Jeffersons, The - TV Shows
"Musical Lionels" didn't kill this show, but it sure stole from its credibility. "Replacement Lionel" was so one-dimensional they ended up writing the character out altogether rather than continue the travesty. How can you replace Mike Evans as Lionel? He played it so perfectly, even if his funniest, edgiest bits were on All In The Family and not really this. Fortunately, when "Lionel" later returned, it was with Mike Evans, which is how it should be. R.I.P. Mike Evans. He died young. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on October 9, 2012, 3:57 pm

Homefront - TV Shows
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

Parker, YES! She was Denise Nicholas whom I can recall helping the relieve the tedium of the otherwise tedious "Room 222" long before [ a rather boring show even back then but oddly enough got referenced by Lisa Douglas on "Green Acres" once].

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Eastbound & Down - TV Shows
This is one show that I never got the appeal of to begin with and I still don't. I found it impossible to like the main character or find him funny, a guy who is a vile, rude and obnoxious fellow - a one-dimensional character that got old quick. All of his actions just seemed to come along okay with the other characters and that bothered me. It is not necessarily complex humour either and the timing is lacking a lot of the time - this comedy comes across as "edgy", twelve-year old appeal.

I read the blog (thanks for posting it, Travoltron!). It echoes practically everything I think about the Simpsons then and now. It perfectly points out the biggest flaw with the Simpson's switch to digital ink and paint: "The fluid and vibrant hand drawn animation has been replaced by militarily rigid computer templates." It even shows the arrogance of Ken Keeler (who wrote that infamous Skinner is a fraud episode). He rebutted critics of the show by saying they get too attached to the characters. Well, yeah, if people don't get attached to the characters, then the show would fail. But thanks to the blog, we officially have an accurate name for what was once the Simpsons: Zombie Simpsons. Since the only way to get it to cancel is to make it less profitable, boycotting Simpsons stuff until the show's cancelled might be the 12-gauge shot to the head that takes this zombie down. -- Submitted By: () on September 19, 2012, 2:09 pm

Enos - TV Shows
@stryker: Enos wasn't a BIG reason for the Dukes of Hazzard being a hit, but he was a popular minor character on the show. He had a long-standing but never-resolved attraction to Daisy which was constantly played for comic effect. And by "never-resolved", I mean that Enos was so naive that while his engine was all stoked for Daisy, when it came to actually doing anything about his attraction, the train never left the station. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 17, 2012, 8:07 am

Enos - TV Shows
I actually saw this one when it aired. I remember it as being goofy, but not THAT bad. It did develop a signature sight gag which was kinda cool: Turk would hold out his hand, plam up, for Enos to give him five, and Enos would instead put a "thumbs-up" into Turk's palm. Initially, it was because Enos didn't know how to respond, but it became the partners' trademark. In retrospect, though, the show spent its whole run milking the "fish out of water" angle of Enos being in L.A., and Enos just ended up coming off like a badly executed carbon copy of Radar O'Reilly. Since M*A*S*H was still on the air at the time, that probably didn't do a thing for the show's efforts to establish a fanbase. Even though I've got some fond memories of the show, the objective verdict is "sucked from the start". -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 17, 2012, 7:59 am

Top Chef - TV Shows
I submitted Season Five as the point where the show boned the fish, but it might have been more an early warning than the actual tipping. First, Toby Young replaced Ted Allen. Young is a poor man\'s Anthony Bourdain who is far more concerned with \"witty\" repartee than actually doing his job as a judge. Second, the producers started taking a far more ham-handed approach to the show, doing their best to create a villain in Stefan Richter where none existed (villains, to the best of my knowledge, aren\'t generally the first to jump in and help when someone else\'s dish goes south because of equipment failure). Third, though the season was held in New York, after the first couple of episodes, you\'d never know it; there was nothing in any challenge beyond the second Quickfire that was unique to New York. -- Submitted By: (JiminNYC) on September 16, 2012, 10:27 pm

NFL Today, The - TV Shows
I think when they started playing "musical female hosts" it got a bit lame. I remember Phyllis George, then someone else, then Jayne Kennedy, then Phyllis again. Was there sexual harrassment going on that we weren't privy too, or were these women just underpaid? I remember Jayne Kennedy, who was briefly a pin-up thanks to her exposure on this show, left in a contract dispute and sank like a lead weight from public view after that. Then when Phyllis replaced her, they had her doing her bits from her living room while the rest of the guys were in the studio. Just seemed like they were bending over backwards to get "any nice looking woman" on the show. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 5:07 pm

Nancy Grace - TV Shows
It's easy to figure out what Nancy Grace is thinking. It's always "guilty!" She's never seen an innocent person accused. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 5:00 pm

Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman - TV Shows
I remember this being on too late for me to watch when it was 1st run, but the acclaim it got seemingly everywhere led me to give it a chance when TV Land aired it decades later. I was expecting a lot better from a "sophisticated" Norman Lear show. I found the characters annoying, unsympathetic and overacted, and the plots ridiculously contrived. It was like this show was trying to be "Soap" before "Soap" happened, and while being about 1/100th as funny. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 4:23 pm

Married with Children - TV Shows
I still watch this quite often in reruns, and I've determined this is a "Tale of Three Shows". There's the Steve episodes, the single / divorced Marcy episodes and the Jefferson episodes. When Marcy has a husband / Al's stooge, the episodes are mainly good. The episodes where she was between husbands, divorced from Steve, but pre-Jefferson, are insufferably bad with few exceptions. I think it boned when Steve left, but boned back when Jefferson took his place and Griff / No Ma'am were added as recurring characters. The only complaint about the Jefferson / No Ma'am ones is that they became very cartoonish. Still hilarious though. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 4:17 pm

He never had a hit TV show unless you consider "My Sister Sam" to have been one. I always thought it was awful myself. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 4:04 pm

Mad About You - TV Shows
So many boning moments in this one. How about the ep where a college professor, played by Nathan Lane, once had an affair with Jamie (Nathan Lane as a stud = automatic bone) before she ever met Paul, and he thinks Paul is "out to get him" as a result of this. I didn't realize caveman thinking was still that prevalent in the 1990s. Just a horribly unfunny episode, and what is it about married people on TV exploiting their ex-affairs? Most married people I know rarely bring those up. I sure don't. My wife doesn't need, or want, to hear about them and neither do I. It's the past. It's not my life anymore. If they were so great, I'd be there and not here. That's real life. Only TV life seems to struggle with that, but this particular episode was just cringe-worthy. Or how about the episode where Steve Buscemi blames Paul for him ending up a subway token clerk, because Paul forgot to wake him up in time to take an exam or something? My first Steve Buscemi exposure and it had to be this. Next thing I saw him in was "Reservoir Dogs", and thought, "wow, he CAN act!" -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 3:57 pm

Actually JayD, there was a "very special" episode involving a blizzard, and I'm pretty sure it was one of the early episodes with Mr. Edwards (in his first tour with the show - pre-Merlin Olsen). -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 3:38 pm

Cosby - TV Shows
Parker, That was good but my fave was the one in which Rudy and her silent friend misused one of Cliff's useless kitchen gadgets and wound up accidentally trashing the kitchen. Let's just say this DID happen in our house when I was a small kid but I by no means got off as scot-free as Rudy did. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:53 am

Baby, I'm Back - TV Shows
Parker, I read it,too, and have to admit that I'd had no idea that this went down much less that's what took it off the air instead of more audience members [like me] hating the concept. Kinda surprised because I always thought that 'Lamont' was the voice of reason on 'Sanford and Son'. Well, IMO the show's premise was awful and the 'star' played a creep but I have to admit that I thought the actress who played his long-suffering wife was gorgeous and the character of Luzelle [the mother-in-law whom the audience was supposed to hate and root against while considering the creep heroic] was played by the late Helen Martin who was ALWAYS good for laughs. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:48 am

Hello, Larry - TV Shows
Parker, Please note that I said Mr. Stephenson had left 'M*A*S*H' to 'wind up' doing this show not that this was the very first thing he did thereafter. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:40 am

Carol Burnett and Friends - TV Shows
Parker, IIRC, Mr. Korman left 'Carol Burnett' to do a sitcom called 'The Harvey Korman Show' in which he played this barely employed, obnoxious older actor who got on everyone's case. No surprise that it only lasted six weeks. In any event, he did NOT return to 'Carol Burnett' before it went off the air and the show limped along after the Van Dyke fail and departure with just the three regulars of Miss Burnett, Tim Conway and Vicki Lawrence. Thankfully, these three were by no means petty people and happily welcomed Mr. Korman back to join in several series' retrospects- not to mention a few episodes of 'Mama's Family' and Tim Conway and Mr. Korman worked together quite extensively until Mr. Korman's death to Miss Burnett's delight. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:37 am

Bill Nye the Science Guy - TV Shows
I liked this show, pretty educational. I also enjoyed Beakman's World. Not so much for the educational value, as it was just so wacky. I think the creators of this show were definitely smokin' something. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 13, 2012, 10:04 pm

Designing Women - TV Shows
Wow, now I feel sorry for Dixie: "[Dixie] Carter was a Republican, a rarity in liberal Hollywood. So she made a deal with [Designing Women]'s producers. For every liberal tirade she had to deliver, she'd get to sing a song in an upcoming episode." So they forced Dixie Carter to soapbox beliefs she was very opposed to (on a freakin' sitcom!) and they fired Delta Burke for gaining weight. Series creator (and buddy of the Clintons) Linda Bloodworth-Thomason ain't lookin' to good to me. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 13, 2012, 6:27 pm

Baby, I'm Back - TV Shows
I read the wiki article after I posted below. I was literally shocked to find out this show was about to be picked up as it performed decently in the ratings, but Demond's ego got in the way of that by making unreasonable demands, so it was cancelled. It may have sucked. It sounds like it did, but that's not why they cancelled it. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 4:49 pm

Honeymooners, The - TV Shows
I never wondered about that because it always seemed like something you would hear said rather than done more often than not, even then. I dont think wife beating was ever acceptable, although it might have been more acceptable to joke about at one time. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 4:33 pm

Seinfeld - TV Shows
The elephant in the room that everyone who watches Seinfeld knows is that the real talent of this show was Larry David. Seinfeld himself is possibly the most overrated comedian of all time. When he was the lone voice of creativity, the show suffered, as was obvious during seasons 8 and 9. Also, after the Michael Richards "rant" and burnout of watching the reruns too many times, I've come to the conclusion that the show has boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 13, 2012, 4:30 pm

Herman's Head - TV Shows
The all time dumbest episode of this was the one where Lita Ford guest starred, and Herman cheats on a girl he really likes with her. The girl finds out. He gets dumped, and Lita (big surprise coming here) never thinks of Herman as anything more than a one-nighter. I guess the moral is, if you cheat you stand to get dumped, even if it's with someone you think NOBODY would turn down......except NOBODY who was a Herman-type yuppie would have the opportunity to turn Lita Ford down in the first place. I think this was a season 2 episode and very indicative the writers were running out of ideas, which is why it wasn't picked up for a 3rd. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 4:23 pm

Hello, Larry - TV Shows
In fairness, McLean didn't leave "M*A*S*H" to do this. "Hello, Larry" was about his 3rd or 4th failed sitcom after M*A*S*H. I think before this you had "The McLean Stevenson Show" and another one where he played a priest (lasted all of 3 episodes I think). You'll have to decide for yourself if this "revelation" makes his decision look better or worse, lol. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 4:16 pm

Green Acres - TV Shows
Never! Didn't even bone when they did a reunion movie in the late 1980s, because they did it right, getting ALL of the surviving cast members together. Only Fred Ziffel and wife had passed on by this time. Unlike "The Odd Couple - Together Again", which made the brilliant move of re-casting Murray The Cop and the other poker players apart from Speed, Green Acres understood we wanted to see the same actors playing the same characters. The plot was a little contrived, and there were many nods to how much time had passed (like the Gorby reference and Eb's teen-angst riddled son who liked "Guns & Roses"), but it was the first new Green Acres episode in almost 20 years. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 3:48 pm

Good Morning America - TV Shows
Maybe that's why I trace it back to David Hartman's departure. It seems he was a more "serious" host who could deliver the hard news without inundating it with fluff. I think they replaced him to make the show more "fluff oriented" and frankly, that doesn't work for me either. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 3:41 pm

Price Is Right, The - TV Shows
I DVRed the 40th anniversary special and finally got around to watching it the other night. While it was cool that they brought back some old contestants and showed some great old clips, I'm a little baffled that they didn't bring Bob Barker back to join in the festivities. Drew Carey's response when asked was "the thought didn't even cross our minds." Whoa, low blow there. I have a feeling the show has been trying to distance themselves from Barker for the past few years now. Maybe because of his past lawsuits, maybe because he truly was dictator to the staff, maybe because of his increasingly vocal activism on animal rights, I don't know, but something tells me that both CBS and the TPIR staff don't want him around. I get it that he's been off the show now for 5 years and it's time to turn the page. Drew Carey's doing a good job as host, the last links from the Barker era, Rich Fields and Fingers Greco, have left, and the show isn't what it was in 2007 when Barker hung up his microphone. Mike Richards has taken over and changed the show, in some ways good (updated games, prizes, set pieces, special weeks), in some ways bad (too many celebrities, too rushed, games that are too difficult to win), but he's made his mark and the show, all things considered, is updated while still retaining the nostalgia of TPIR that we know and love. All that said, Barker hosted for 35 years and is a huge reason its still on today. Even if it was just remarks, he should have had some role in the anniversary. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 13, 2012, 3:39 pm

Flo (Progressive Insurance) - TV Shows
Speaking of the "creepy ass guy", does anyone else think he says "this movie stars you and Satan....but mostly savings" in that recent one he did? I realize that's not what he supposedly says, but it sounds like that EVERY time I hear it. This isn't one of those deals where once you realize what he says you hear it right from then on. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 3:20 pm

F Troop - TV Shows
I love that recurring gag where the cannon fails to fire, Dobbs kicks one of the wheels (what is that supposed to DO?), which falls off as the cannon abruptly fires and knocks down the lookout tower as a hapless Trooper Vanderbilt (of course the most nearsighted guy in the fort is the lookout) jumps out at the last moment to avoid being crushed inside it. That and "IT IS BA-LLOOOOOOOOOONNNN!!!!!" -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 3:09 pm

Yeah, I agree. Next time Dixie Carter opens her mouth, someone stuff a sock in it. Unwatchable tripe, especially after that bottle blonde from Newhart replaced Delta. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 2:48 pm
