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.

American Idol - TV Shows
They've axed all the judges (Seacrest won't return either), and will replace them, as part of the 'overhaul' Fox plans on giving this show after the current season. Among the 'dream team' of new judges? Selena Gomez, Justin Beiber, Pink and P. Diddy! Diddy and maybe Pink I can understand, but Selena and Beiber??! This show had a good run, just let it rest in piece! -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on May 10, 2013, 9:24 am

Twelve O'Clock High (TV series) - TV Shows
This was a great show overall. Even with the switch in stars. The writing was great; top notch quality. The are several things that bug me: the out of date jackets, (the ones which have 50 star flags patches on the right sleeve); reference to the United States Air Force, (which didn't exist until after WWII); and the biggest thing was how Col. Gallagher would "sound off" or "smart back" to his superiors without getting into trouble. It could be that everyone knew that his Dad was a high ranking General but even with this one would think that he would know better. Often times I think that he "came off as a spoiled brat". But again overall a truely good show. Compare this to "today's hit shows" and it's pretty obvious that TV has devolved to depths never imagined. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on May 9, 2013, 3:35 am

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea - TV Shows
The first year and the beginning of the second were good but then the show evolved into the "monster of the week". I guess the "targeted viewing audience" became the 7 - 14 year olds. This was unfortunate because this was a good show and if it kept to the original format it probably would have lasted a couple more years -- Submitted By: (Pete) on May 9, 2013, 3:24 am

Big Bang Theory - TV Shows
this show has never boned. The whole premise of the show is that the pretty girl across the hall is showing the two physicists a thing or two about life, and their worlds are growing & expanding. Don't believe me? Look on CBS's official website. If they did not add Amy and Bernadette, the show would've tanked and ended after season 3. You really want to see them play Halo and WoW and do the same things in every damn episode? Currently in season 6, almost everybody agrees that this season is the best one since season 2. And the ratings are unbelievable--even winning the evening viewer title during a rerun. And there is still a lot of science and nerdy stuff. Anyone who doesn't see that probably doesn't even watch the show anymore, or they're blind. They probably wouldn't be complaining if it was season 2. And it's not a laugh track it's a live audience too. I've been to a taping. -- Submitted By: (sprroch89) on May 8, 2013, 12:47 pm

18 Kids and Counting - TV Shows
I saw a news story blurb online recently about the Duggars taking snorkling lessons. The story emphasized that the Duggars wore regular clothes instead of swimsuits into the water because they felt that the suits were immodest. I know that as far as modesty is concerned, there are different standards for public vs. private. But even so, doesn't it seem a bit odd that two people who have conceived that many children together would have modesty hang-ups regarding swimsuits? -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 8, 2013, 2:06 am

18 Kids and Counting - TV Shows
Stephanie.. you're right about them "hoarding" kids. The Duggars' religion is called Quiverfull ) "Every child is considered a gift" But 19 of them?? !! The mother (in this case Michelle) takes care of baby for 2 years & then he or she is assigned a buddy in the "buddy system" & then the older ones are stuck taking care of the younger one > I think that's horrible! No WONDER why the poor little ones are toilet trained so late!Plus the oldest one is expecting his THIRD child! Why don't the Duggar parents enjoy grandparenthood already! There's talk of them adopting little girls from Asia! OK..so little Asian girls need homes. But then they'll get pushed to the side just like all the OTHER Duggar kids do!

Ally McBeal - TV Shows
The show boned when it went away from the "special effects" such as Ally getting hit by six arrows, etc... It just became too serious on one end and ridiculous on the other in the same episode. But as stated from other viewers my wife loved the show from beginning to almost the end. Even she couldn't take the daughter angle. Towards the end of the series it went back to including some "special effects" but it was too little too late. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on May 3, 2013, 3:47 am

Two and a Half Men - TV Shows
Okay, so the ratings on this crappy show continue to be high, but this show has gotten worse and worse with each season. With the half man(sort of speak) thinking about leaving next year, are they still going to call it Two and a Half Men? Or will they shorten it to Two Men? Or maybe they will pull a Cousin Oliver and bring in another kid. Either way, this train wreck of a show needs to end right away. I am pretty sure that if it didn't follow the Big Bang Theory, it would have gone off the air by now. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on May 1, 2013, 6:50 pm

Firefly - TV Shows
Firefly boned not because of Fox but Joss Whedon put out a bad show. Firefly had huge plot holes like when will the passengers leave? Suddenly they become part of the crew. The biggest problem was how the show was marketed. Joss Whedon fell for the trap of the one big thing, thinking that a show success was due to the one single element, in this case (Star Trek) Fans. Mr Whedon try go gin buzz by getting fans excited about the show, it work to a point a la browncoats fans; but the writing was so poor when some fan tried to get me to watch , and when I did, I felt let down by the fan and the show. Firefly did not live up to its expectation cased by the buzz. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on April 30, 2013, 1:43 am

Babylon 5 - TV Shows
Fantastic show until post Shadow War. The tension was nearly all gone with the super powerful enemy being defeated. All the main characters were interestnig. G'Kar's character had a great plotline in particular. Small problems: 1. They Psycorp would be running all of Earth's government if they were as powerful as portrayed. They would trick you into thinking that they had taken the blue pill and were no longer psychic or they would make you serve them in whatever way they wished. 2. The Membari would be dreaded by Humans and others alike. The Humans would not have been like: Oh, hey yeah they were just going to genocide us because one of our rogue captains killed their great leader, but then their religious cast said that we were also Membari because of reincarnation so they let us live.

Boondocks, The - TV Shows
The Boondocks has some epic moments but suffers from recuring lameness probably due to the FCC. I've got to go with reason 4: Wayyyyyy to P.C. Even if that was meant as a joke, it is still very PC for a show trying to be super edgy. If you are going to show racism, show racism. If you are going to show violence, show violence. If your going to tell a mean joke, tell a mean joke. They do all this once in a while but not often enough to make the show watchable. Huey, Riley and Grandad are barely cognizant of the fact that they are very light skinned and wealthy. Their experience is nowhere close to the desperate scrape of the lower classes that they identify with. Ruckus is comic relief but crawls on his belly too much in the presence of white people. Tom is way to square, even for a laywer. Overall, the characters are too much formula and not enough development. The concept of the show has high potential but is unlikely to reach it because its contract would get revoked for some or all of the following: -Joking about corrupt Jews running most of the world media and banking systems. Using that control to pit the other races against each other and uncorrupted Jews. White or Eastern European Jews being racist to Black Jews; etc. (This is a racist show based on stereotypes. But you just can't make some jokes in the mainstream media can you?) -Joking about White people who like Black people but only in small doses or at a "safe" distance. (Any of the White neighbors plus Tom and his wife Sara could seemlessly fit into such a plot line. So could the Freeman's.) -Interracial violence as a complex story line (Graphic depictions of criminal behavior by Blacks, Whites and Hispanics; innocent people being tormented by once innocent victims of racist abuse who have, after long years of said abuse, turned into racist vigilantes. Show Whites, Blacks and Hispanics as recipients as well as perpatrators.) -Rich people of all colors exploiting cheap immigrant labor while pretending to be "making the world a better place" and saying "I'm not a racist. See I'm giving poor immigrants a chance at a better life." Then show uber rich Mexicans and US Americans laughing it up about how much money they make off that scam. (I believe they touched a bit on this subject in one episode.) I get the feeling that the writers of the show both know how to tell and want to tell these kinds of stories. For some reason they do not and the show suffers greatly for it. It seems like someone who controls what gets watched won't let them. -- Submitted By: () on April 28, 2013, 9:30 pm

Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
Hill was way more hilarious than Python ever was. TV stations like WLVI TV Channel 56 in Cambridge, Mass. advertised The Benny Hill Show as funnier than Monty Python's Flying Circus (and mind you the station was airing both shows!). This fact has been on youtube for years. I'd say Python boned from the beginning as it was indeed far less funny than what it was supposed to be all along (it was supposed to be like Hill's show as that Hillish-skit proved). -- Submitted By: (ComedyMan) on April 28, 2013, 11:27 am

Transformers, The - TV Shows
There was a certain arrogance and stupidity in 1980s corporate America like New Coke and renaming Jack in the Box to Monterey Jack's that blew up in the suits' faces. And then there was Hasbro and Transformers The Movie and how Optimus Prime was sacrificed at the altar of corporate greed. You see, by this point many Transformer toys had been on the shelf for two years and Hasbro thought it was time to discontinue these products and plug the newer toys. So some moron decides, "Hey, since we aren't selling these toys anymore, let's just callously kill off all those characters in The Movie and have the new toys, I mean characters take their place." They actually thought kids were stupid sheep that would blindly accept this scenario. Of course, the opposite happened. Kids were traumatized by seeing their favorite characters that they had been following for over two years die like that and nobody was buying the newer (and inferior, by the way) toys. So Hasbro panics and about six months later Optimus Prime was resurrected. But it was too late; the Transformers boom was over. They should have just left well enough alone instead of trying to "shake things up". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 26, 2013, 11:07 pm

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) - TV Shows
This show was actually better than the original cartoon and skewed a lot closer to the awesome comic book that started it all. I guess they ran out of ideas (and comics to adapt) because some moron had the idea to send the Turtles into the future and thus Fast Forward was born. I only watched an episode or two and I was done with this show. I did come back for Turtles Forever, which was a lot of fun despite the 1987 Turtles being recast. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 26, 2013, 10:48 pm

The "After the movie" reason mentions about how "Derek Drymon was forced to keep it going," but I think Paul Tibbitt should get just as much blame (if not more), since he became the showrunner after the the movie, and, if I'm not mistaken, became executive producer in 2007. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on April 26, 2013, 1:08 am

Happy Days - TV Shows
I've been watching these on TV recently and have to agree with that the show really started to suck at season 3. The switch to the live studio audience was certainly annoying, and many of the 3rd-string characters just vanished without explanation, like Chuck and the waitresses at Arnold's. The shift of focus to The Fonz began here. Almost every episode was about Fonzie having to do something out of his comfort zone, but succeeding and proclaiming new experience "cool". The Fonz got watered down and preachy. "Wearing glasses is cool!" etc. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 24, 2013, 6:52 pm

If it wasn't for google, I probably still wouldn't know who the rapist was, or his fate. I also don't like how his identity wasn't revealed until after he was shot dead.....so we don't get to see him confronted, arrested, tried or hanged......just bang bang and it's over.

But I knew things weren't going to be good when in the first episode introduced a 'Lost in Space' concept to the series. It got worse as the show went on; it devolved into a lame set of 'wouldn't it be cool if_________' situations that seem to come straight from bad Star Trek fan fiction. -- Submitted By: (Scots) on April 5, 2013, 7:00 am

Classic example of a show staying on the air far too long. Wally and The Beav morphed into ugly apes after several seasons. They went from adorable children to smart-alecky teens with acne and in Wally's case, either thyroid or steroid problems. Honestly, he went from a skinny kid to a hulk sized freak in just a couple of years. My grandmom swears she never vacuumed in high heels and a pearl necklace and my grandad said he never lounged around after work with a tie and sweater, just his boxers and a cold Bud! So much for early 60's reality. I did get a kick out of one show I saw, June lugged in several very large bags of groceries and handed the cash register tape to Ward, it was about three feet long. June and the boys unpacked and you could see a whole ham, steaks, ground beef, all sortas of yummy food including what looked like a ten pound wheel of cheddar and gallons of ice cream. Ward shrieks, "6 dollars and 75 cents! I'm not made of money, you know, June!"

I always found this show unrealistically sweet. I mean seven kids, two parents and two grandparents all crammed into the same house in the middle of the depression and they never actually fought with each other. I don't mean the ocassional "I'm mad at Mary Ellen for tattling," I mean the inescapable bloody fist fights that would have erupted with all those peeps under the same roof competing for food and the bathroom! I would have loved to have seen the episode where the younger boys gang up and beat the snot out of John Boy, strip him naked and toss him into the girls locker room at school.

Freaks and Geeks - TV Shows
James Franco, Seth Rogan, Jason Segal, Linda Cardellini and John Francis Dailey, wow! Like most people I discovered this gem of a TV show long after it had been cancelled and was furious it only had 24 episodes. Then I started to think what a classic it has become, it died young and left a good looking corpse. It would have been sad to see the older kids go off on their seperate ways and the younger ones turn into obnoxious post-pubescent creeps. It was funny sometimes and sad sometimes but most of all it was a very realistic look at a lost generation. My favorite episode was when Sam (a very young John Francis Dailey) should up at school wearing a very effeminate, very tight fitting, jewel bedazzled, bright blue jump suit. All the other kids were having too much fun laughing behind his back to tell him he looked like a disco queen, emphasis on queen. His favorite teacher took him aside and gently told him the truth and gave him a pass to go home and change. It started out as a funny situation but ended up with Sam being devastated but grateful to hear the truth. It made me remember my early teens when I thought a gallon of cologne and a way too tight OP tee shirt made me a babe magnet. I was also grateful when an older male wised me up. Seriously, if you don't know this show, watch it. IFC plays it frequently and its avaialble for download and streaming on some sites. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 4, 2013, 3:05 pm

Dream On - TV Shows
This was a real charmer of a show and was basically about a divorced single dad trying to stay afloat financially and enjoy life a little but most importantly raise his teenage son. Brian Benben was the dad, Martin, and Chris Demetral was his son, Jeremy, who was 14 in the first season. This was no Courtship of Eddie's father with sickly sweet stories, it showed two very lifelike characters who screamed at each other often, exchanged "I hate you" verbal assaults and contemplated going their seperate ways BUT they loved each other and it really showed. The writing was top notch and the actors were brilliant. My favorite scene was from season one when Martin and his friend decide to smoke a little pot before the son came home. They lost track of time and 14-year old Jeremy walks in, sniffs the air and says, "It smells like school in here." That's good stuff. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 4, 2013, 2:45 pm

Malcolm in the Middle - TV Shows
Linwood Boomer created a brilliant show and it totally rocked for the first two seasons. It was very inventive, funny, weird, and never used a laugh track. It got very bad in its final two seasons and pretty stale well before that. The result was a pathetic mess and VERY unlikable characters. Malcolm went from funny, charming and sweet to mean, hateful and arrogant. Reese went from a clever, prank playing, high spirited boy to an obnoxious, morose idiot that you wanted to beat with a bat. Dewey went from sweet and weird to creepy and weird, Lois went from controlling but effective mom to a looney-toons psycho parent and Hal went from proud dad to a broken, blubbering mess. And then they committed the cardinal sin of boning, they had a new baby! OMG! I recently caught some of the early shows on IFC (of all palces) and was reminded how brilliant it was in the beginning. They should have pulled the plag after season two and let it take its place among the TV legends. Instead, it muddled on through 5 more pianful seasons and will be remembered as nothing more than a sitcom that hung around too long and lost its way. not to mention its audience. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 4, 2013, 2:30 pm

Two things made this show ridiculous: Wesley Crusher (come on, a 14-year old "acting eneign" allowed to take the helm) and the inclusion of familes and children on the flagship of Star Fleet. How many battles did they get into with thousands of civilains and children onboard? I know they had the ability to seperate the saucer section but they rarely bothered to do it after the first season. Besides, even if they seperated, what if the saucer section goes into battle and gets destroyed, then what? You have thousands of civilians and children helpless in deep space with the bad guys ready to pounce. Add in the ridiculous holodeck storylines and Patrick Stewart's idiotic Shakespearean posing and you have a real mess, beats me how it stayed on the air for so long. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 4, 2013, 2:13 pm

This was one of the best shows ever on TV, ever! It was technically a sit-com but did not use a laugh track, which was very cutting edge for the day. The humor was always good natured and never mean-spirited. Several episodes were very serious and dealt with suicide in the black community, poverty, drug, alcohol, and drug addiction, and all forms of racial prejudice. Even the serious episodes made you laugh at times because of the great writing and the humanity of the characters. I have read for years that copyright issues with the show's music have kept it from being released on DVD or on Netflix or HULU, thtat's a real shame. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 4, 2013, 9:44 am

Degrassi Junior High - TV Shows
I was the same age as these characters when the show was on the air in the late 80's. I loved it for the realistic portryal of teens. They never had frivolous plots and showed my generation like we were, serious about life and dealing with a lot of very grown-up problems. One episode had Wheels running away and getting picked up by a pervert who tried to molest him. Another story line involved pregnancy and abortion. The problems of gay students, poor students, abused students were all told very realistically. I was very disappointed with Degrassi TNG. Although they feature some of the same characters all grown-up, the writing isn't the same quality and the kids are portrayed as 2-dimensional dim-witts, not real people. I think the original Degrassi and its short-lived companion series, Fifteen, were the basis for the excellent BBC series, Skins (the US version was horrible). This show never boned or jumped and I wish teens today had a similar series that depicts them as human beings. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 4, 2013, 9:37 am

Good Day LA - TV Shows
Jillian used to be this kookie iJustine like breath of sunshine. but right around 2000 when all the rest of the Fox News shows made their switch, this show tanked. They drank the Kool Aid and switched to Republican Dogma. Utterly useless after that. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:46 am

Sports Night - TV Shows
Great show, one of my all-time favorites. Only problem was that it didn't last 12 more seasons. And the laugh track was taken out. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:43 am

Max Headroom - TV Shows
I found a weird disconnect with the whole thing about using manual typewriters as the keyboard for a computer, and yes, the big, clunky camera, even in the face of miniaturization, but if you are looking for old-school hard Science Fiction (not SyFy), then this is where to go. Every week, a new technology and the results of man rubbing up against it. Savory and tasty SF, with enough else going on to keep anyone vaguely interested. Ultimately, the irritating main character may have been the true demise of the show. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:38 am

Terra Nova - TV Shows
I love how people who really blast this show have no idea what went on. Yep a little contrived, but nothing was etched in stone. There were slowly unfolding plot devices that, clearly, were just a little too subtle for the american "slpain it to me" attitude. On the other hand, based on the season 1 finale, this could have taken the X-files route with constant additions of threats and threads, with no resolutions. Maybe Fox saved us from 5 more years of "they have a plan" -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:31 am

Ally McBeal - TV Shows
ensemble cast folks. Yes Calista literally fell through a couple of the larger cracks in the floor towards the end there, but there was a LOT of other things going on: Judge Armin Shimmerman, Cage and Fish, and the wickedly funny secretary "Daddy always said I was the best kisser".... LOL. I loved the show, Don't like it, don't watch it. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:24 am

Andromeda - TV Shows
Sorbo came out of Hercules and went straight into this. And we got the same unflavored tapioca out of him. Better ensemble should have lead to a better show, but at least it stayed faithful to the Roddenberry principals (unlike E:FC, DS9, etc) -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:18 am

Married with Children - TV Shows
The most confusing episodes of this series, for me, were the sudden injection of spin-off pilots. the shows where the whole bundy clan was ignored and we went to Matt Leblanc playing "vinny" with wis grifting father. Couldn't pull a laugh out of me with a pitchfork. Other than that,,,, comfortable, formulaic humor that spawned 1000 copies. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 7:12 am

8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter - TV Shows
I think it was really brave to try to continue the show after Ritter's death. If they could have explored that and maybe shown a few clumsy attempts at dating or something it could have been a masterpiece. but David Spade is my number one reason to turn OFF the tv. He was like a grown-up Oliver!! -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:57 am

Stargate SG-1 - TV Shows
Losing Jack Oneill wasn't such a bad thing. the first two seasons showed me that my fond memories of McGuyver were hazy at best. Oneill made so many blatant acting errors, I wondered if he'd taken a blow to the head recently. Slowly he warmed up as the writers worked around is "quirks". I hated Jonas Quinn, and was glad to have dDaniel back so much that the ham-handed method of exiting Quinn made no difference to me. When SG1 absorbed the Farscape crew I was hoping for new life, and got it. Yes, the Ori sucked, it sucked that they were easy to kill, it sucked that they couldn't just let the series go with the wrap up of the Guald. but the 200th episode was one of the best tribute episodes of all time. I still can't help thinking about the "younger, edgier cast" when people mention the Star Trek reboot. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:53 am

Dexter - TV Shows
I know that religion and psychosis are often close travelers, but the incessant injection of religion with Brother Sam and the apocalypse killers was just painful. A lot of the audience dropped during that period, but with the revelation of Dexter to Deb, the show has a little more life again, However, the show could go either way. I'm confident that Manny Coto can pull this fish out of the fire. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:41 am

Grimm - TV Shows
I think we'll see the end of season 2 as the jumping of the shark. Season 1 ended with a dual "buddy cop" vibe: two humans, actually cops, plus the grimm-vessen team on the other side. Once the cop buddy is told about the vessen, he's followed by the police chief as part of the team, and the vanilla-pudding girlfriend is sure to follow.Soon we'll have an ensemble case of characters far sooner than the bad guys are able to multiply.. Hope I'm wrong. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:35 am

Xena: Warrior Princess - TV Shows
My ONLY beef with this show is that people keep adding it to their lists of best SF series. Seriously? Just because the show is on SyFy, it's Science Fiction? What does that say about wrestling? Hear this now: THIS SHOW IS FANTASY. And it was pretty good at that. that's why it outlasted Hercules (and maybe because they didn't have a historical figure looming over their main character for comparison). It's a fun romp (in a "girl power" kind of way). -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:29 am

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys - TV Shows
I can see wanting to expand the role of the sidekick a little so that Herc wasn't the only one saving the day. but why does every hack writer have to put modern items into historic settings?. I think they "invented" a cell phone at one point. I liked the first couple of seasons better when the running gag was woven into the names of the supporting characters:: the thief - Felonious, LOL By the time Xena spun off the formula was diluted more than a Homeopathic remedy. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:23 am

Kung Fu - TV Shows
I'll admit, I was very young when this show came out, and I loved all the martial arts stuff. But I just couldn't wrap my head around the white guy. This confusion multiplied when they finally show the long-sought "brother" - an asian. I knew enough about genetics to realize these guys did not spring from the same well. *sigh* Based on the rapid cancellation, I could see i wasn't the only one. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:15 am

Psych - TV Shows
I can't peel myself away from this show. Thank you Ion TV for showing 8 episodes a day to get me caught up on seasons 1-5. As a comedy, the show is a little topical. they love spoofing the latest trends, and of course, they will never stop poking fun at CBS's 'The Mentalist' for ripping off their formula. Having the main couple get together and slowly evolve wasn't such a bad thing, in the name of "professionalism" they keep their relationship out of the work relationship (mostly). Another fun thing about the show: there's a pineapple in every episode, sometimes obvious, sometimes subtle. "Spot the pineapple" is a favorite game of die-hard fans, and a fair drinking game bonus when combined with "drink every time they eat." -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:11 am

Firefly - TV Shows
I'll admit, I came in late on one of the early episodes, expecting an SF- space show (based on the previews). But there were 20 minutes of people in western outfits doing entirely western things, and I thought I was watching the wrong show. I gave up. Years later some 'froth at the mouth" fans who were friends of mine forced me to watch the un-aired pilot from the dvd collection and I was hooked. Just in time to get a little depressed by the loss of characters in the movie and Josh returning to his fetish for super-powered little girls. I would have completely preferred to have several more seasons and no movie (after I became a fan). -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 6:01 am

Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. - TV Shows
Like so many pre-modern comedies, this series fell into the tap of having one character constantly "inventing" modern conveniences, usually as comic relieve, but sometimes for actual plot generation. The overall plot with the golden orbs was kinda nice, even thought the western/scifi vibe didn't really catch (maybe someone should have told Joss Wedon about this series). But the show really just fell apart when they brought in Gomez Adams as a recurring "whacky professor" character. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 5:52 am

Detriot 1-8-7 - TV Shows
I glanced over this show once early one. First, the thing that started out as an insult is that 187 is CALIFORNIA code for murder. It's a parking violation (or something) in Detroit. It may be believed that this slang term has echoed across the world, but not, apparently in Detroit. I've hears rumors that this was supposed to be a mocumentary like a dark version of RENO 9-1-1. that might explain whi they cheesed off so many Detroit natives and lost their base. -- Submitted By: (Tedward) on April 4, 2013, 5:45 am

Tonight Show, The - TV Shows
I'm really pissed off at the news that Jay Leno will be replaced with Jimmy Fallon. Not because they're firing Leno (I'm happy about that part) but because Jimmy didn't pay his dues like Conan did. This just brings back memories of all that nastiness three years ago with firing Conan and bringing back Jay, and proves it was all for nothing. I'm hearing talking heads saying, "Well, the market has changed so much since then." REALLY!? Oh yeah, things are just SOOO much different in a mere three years. I'm so happy NBC is in 5th place and will laugh when that network finally dies. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 3, 2013, 6:35 pm

Leverage - TV Shows
One of the few cases where a TV Show stayed strong until the very end. It started with fresh characters and an interesting dynamic in the first season, ended with a very memorable cliff-hanger the second season, became really strong for the third season. After this, the show became somewhat a mixed package, mostly because there are only so many ways to con someone, but it was still going strong enough to be a worthwhile watch unitl the series finale, which was so well done that I'm now hopin for a spin-off or at least a couple of well made TV-Movies. Either way: This show never boned! -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on April 3, 2013, 11:16 am

8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter - TV Shows
Great, funny show that launched the career of the awesome Kaley Cuoco and featured the bestest TV mom and dad ever: John Ritter and Katie Segal! I agree they should have ended the show when John died, maybe done a few episodes to wrap up and that's all! Instead they hire the insipid David Spade, yuck! Even the great James Garner as grandad couldn't save this show, too bad. While Ritter lived, it was one of the best sitcoms to ever escape Hollywood! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on March 28, 2013, 4:23 pm

Eddie was a spolied brat, and here's a clue, dad! Kids don't need you to be their best friend, they need parenting! If it had gone on much longer, Eddie would have become a weed freak and cooking up crystal in the kitchen while banging high school chicks two at a time. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on March 28, 2013, 4:17 pm

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
So, they decided to start the very first episode of the very first season by killing the most beloved television mom of all time. Boo! Hiss! Boo! Hiss! I know Jean Stapleton wanted to go but why not just have her move in with Gloria and take care of Joey? That way she's out of the show but the character lives! Jeez! Talk about stupid decisions! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on March 28, 2013, 4:08 pm

Modern Family - TV Shows
The only thing I really hate about this show is that fat little twerp Manny. The rest of the kids are great, the actors playing them are great, they are well written and very funny and real at the same time. But for some inexplicable reason, the writers and producers seem to have a Manny episode every other week. Enough, already, the kid is a total creep. As for Al Bundy, he is awesome! Jeez, how many 70 year olds marry a Columbian trophy wife that can even hold a candle to Sofia Vergara? Besides she is really, really funny! More Luke episodes and less Manny! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on March 28, 2013, 4:01 pm

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.

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
