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.

Gangland - TV Shows
I agree with Robert. A case can be made for shows about the Mafia on The History Channel, since they go back to the early 20th century in America and have had a notable impact on our history. The oldest of the street gangs covered by the show date from, what, the '70s? (The MCs go back somewhat farther, of course.) The show is undeniably interesting, in a depressing sort of way - every person featured on them deserves a bullet to the head - but it's questionable to me whether it ought to be on THC. Another depressing thought: I wonder when they're going to run out of gangs to examine. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 12:12 pm

Gangland - TV Shows
Im watching season 6 of this show on dvd right now, I'm a fan, and it's still a good ride. I dont like how they changed some of the graphics and music on the show,and I understand seeason 7 is the final season of the show, I have no idea why, this show was cheap to produce and infinitely interesting. And Robert, I disagree, there is quite a bit of history on the show, albeit criminal history. But I have managed to learn alot of interesting facts and true life stories from watching this show. I was also surprised about some of the big time gangs that didnt make it to the show- Black Guerilla Family comes to mind. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 11, 2011, 4:31 am

Just annoying. The damn fool dresses like a cartoon character.

Duet - TV Shows
A charming little show, back in Fox's youth. It aired on Sundays, as I recall (Fox only broadcast on the weekends back then), and it came on after Garry Shandling and Tracey Ullman. I figured Chris Lemmon would have a successful TV career after this show, but for some reason I was wrong. The series was not on long enough to bone. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 3:19 am

Intervention - TV Shows
If it's scripted, the producers deserve to be shot. Personally, I'm willing to accept that it's real, but whatever educational value the show has is lost on me; I just can't get past feeling like a really nasty voyeur watching something so personal and painful (and absolutely none of my business). If I were an addict I would be violently opposed to my life being splashed across millions of TV screens. For every viewer who tunes in to get educated, there is at least one who is tuning in to be entertained. You and I know that, and the producers and network heads know it too - but they're clearly okay with it. Therefore, I say this show boned the fish from the moment the network approved its airing. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 3:04 am

Lost in Space - TV Shows
True enough. But Irwin Allen saw the wisdom in having one main character who was a jerk. (He used the same formula with Land of the Giants.) It's a handy device that creates more opportunities for conflict. It also allows for a little tension between characters, of the sort that several good series employed. (Spock vs McCoy, Festus vs Doc, Magnum vs Higgins....) And frankly, Smith was the most interesting character on the show; the rest were pretty colorless. (He also had the best lines by far.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 11, 2011, 1:40 am

Umm, Mythigator? Dean said "pedantic", not "pedophiliac". The words have vastly different meanings. But never mind. The point is that Smith was SUPPOSED to be obnoxious.

Yes, Roy Clark is an exceptional guitarist and banjo player. He plays a mean fiddle too. The man is basically the stringed-instrument equivalent of a polymath; ninety percent of all the talent on Hee Haw was him alone. (Most of the remaining ten percent was Junior Samples.)

Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
Monty Python's Flying Circus premiered to a bewildered British public on October 5th, 1969. It would, though, become one of the most influential shows in television history. From Saturday Night Live to Kids in the Hall to South Park, the offshoots of Python are numerous. While the show wasn't on for very long, it made made a tremendous impact in the world of television, film, and music. It took snappy British humor, surreal animation, and general goofiness and combined it into a an awe inspiring sketch comedy show that still has viewers young and old roaring with laughter 42 years after its premiere. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on May 9, 2011, 11:29 pm

Hogan's Heroes - TV Shows
Re: Ivan Dixon, it's true that Kinch didn't have too many good lines. But he was portrayed as the most responsible and intelligent of the POWs (aside from Hogan himself), and that must surely have counted for something. Besides, character development wasn't really a focus of the show; none of the characters was really fleshed out all that much during the show's six years. The weirdest thing about this show is that all the major German characters were played by Jewish actors. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 9, 2011, 2:33 pm

Hogan's Heroes - TV Shows
Ivan Dixon, to my knowledge, got fed up with the lack of diversity in his character. I agree with him, in seems the creators patted themselves on the back for having a African American on the show, and that was that. Having said that, I don't compare, but do put this show in the same general category as "The Producers". Totally lamponing the Nazi's made for great comedy. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 7:08 pm

Andy Griffith Show - TV Shows
I have to agree that the show lost alot when Don Knotts left. Poor Jack Burns tried hard but was totally inadequate as the new deputy. And when they started devoting episodes to the character Howard Sprague, the downward slide REALLY started. (That character was possibly the dullest on any TV show of the era.) But the event that finally lost me as a viewer was the departure of Floyd the Barber at the end of the 7th season. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 6:10 pm

I feel Lost is the greatest show ever made and the reason is because it did "Bone the Fish".

This allowed the show to finish the way it started and went on to entertainment greatness. -- Submitted By: (jonkaplanseaver) on May 8, 2011, 4:59 pm

Star Trek - TV Shows
OK, I'm not going to say the show irrevokably boned here but did anyone else think it was just a bit much when Jim discovered his brother and sister-in-law had been fatally attacked in their colony by the giant flying brain cells and his nephew was beamed aboard unconscious- yet Jim barely acknowledged his brother's passing or his nephew's grave condition while endlessly operatically wailing over whether SPOCK would survive said attack? I mean, I know Spock was Jim's best friend and all and the audience had never heard a peep about his brother and bro's family before this but what kind of priorities does one have to get totally emotional over a best friend while ignoring one's own family? Yeah, Spock survived +Kirk was all happy(and some Trek book stated the kid recovered and was raised by his Earth-bound grandma) but, as far as the show was concerned, the nephew might as well STILL be unconscious in an unseen part of the sickbay unvisited and ignored by his uncle! If Kirk didn't care two bits about this particular nuclear family, what was the point of making them related to him instead of maybe friends of friends? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 3:57 pm

Rifleman, The - TV Shows
That opening of the 11 rifle shots was quite impressive- and showed that Mr. Connors put his physical training and reflex timing from his baseball career to excellent use! That episode was a good one, soggy. I always liked the one in which Lucas was oddly aloof than to this new woman in town who played a song on a guitar- while the kid adored her and then when the kid was trapped in a well, he dreamed of his late mother in a veil playing that song and when she unveiled herself it was the EXACT same actress playing the new woman in town! I often thought it interesting how this was one of the more deep Westerns in that there was so MUCH that had happened with Lucas and his son prior to the timeframe that was too painful for them to discuss yet seemed to have had a profound effect on how they currently lived their lives. Also, while Lucas may have seemed outwardly cold to his motherless son, there was no doubt he adored the boy more than literally his own life. Yeah, I was intrigued by the contrast between this and "Bonanza" in which every single tragedy that had happened re the Cartwrights was endlessly rehashed ,wore their hearts on their sleeves and were totally mushy with each other. Truth be told, I think it was a far more realistic approach as to how so many folks in the 19th century lived their lives! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 8, 2011, 3:45 pm

Jerry Springer Show, The - TV Shows
When the original, sensible format was abandoned after the first few years, due to low ratings, and replaced by what we see today, immediate fish-boning ensued.

Rifleman, The - TV Shows
The opening scene was so cool; Connors handled that Winchester like it was an extension of his arm. It's not easy to rapid-fire one of those things, and tougher yet to twirl-cock it; there weren't too many actors besides Connors and John Wayne who could do it convincingly. The episode that stands out most sharply in my mind involved Lucas spending the entire half hour trying to figure out how to get out of a sleeping bag without being bitten by the rattlesnake that had crawled inside during the night. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 4:14 pm

Tour of Duty - TV Shows
Evan227's critique is right on the money. When the network expanded the scope from the small-horizon story of a more or less typical infantry platoon to a romance-heavy soap opera, and then to the rarefied world of SpecOps (as if rifle platoons routinely morph into SF outfits), the show became just another clueless Hollywood take on military life. I'm surprised the subsequent career of Terence Knox, who was so consistently excellent as Sgt Anderson, never really took off. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 7, 2011, 3:56 pm

Office, The - TV Shows
Very strange episode last night. I figured they'd get rid of DeAngelo in a much darker manner. He'd have a nervous breakdown, or he'd become so insufferable that Jim and Dwight would be forced to set him up to be fired, or maybe he'd do something illegal and end up in jail. In other words, something with a dark-edged finality to it. Instead they have him injure himself in a basketball exhibition. Sort of a lighthearted end to a mini-arc I was sure would play out more dramatically. I won't say this ending was a cop-out, in the sense that the last-second Michael-and-Pam-at-the-airport scene last week was, but it did seem to indicate a desire on the part of the producers to play it safe - and that's never a good sign.

The concept of the show was weird to me even as a little kid and as an adult I would sometimes wonder if I dreamed the whole thing. I had thought this show was canceled in the mid-80s, but Wiki says this show ran until 1994. I disagree with the previous comment about this show never working today. It seems inline with all the "celebrity" reality shows currently polluting the airwaves.

Andromeda - TV Shows
Another show that Gene Roddenberry made despite being dead. I always pictured TV producers conjuring him via seance or Ouija boards. Other people here have alluded to it already, but I should elaborate. Kevin Sorbo thought this ensemble show was all about HIM and threw his weight around to make it so. The series creator didn't want to go along with this, so Sorbo got him fired. Sorbo was jealous of all the attention co-star Keith Hamilton Cobb was getting (especially be female fans) and made things miserable for him until he quit. The last season or two were completely unintelligible. You'll notice you don't see him much in anything these days and I'm sure that's largely due to the way he treated his cast and crew. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 4, 2011, 11:12 pm

You know what's funny about the M*A*S*H franchise? Every incarnation gets progressively worse. The novel is an under rated classic that will make you laugh like an idiot. The 1970, while a dark comedy classic, didn't have the same vibe the novel had. Still, though, it's a classic that everyone should see at least once. The TV show is a classic example of a show staying past its welcome. What started out as a great ensemble sitcom became Alan Alda's personal soapbox. It really is a shame because, for about 6 or 7 seasons, M*A*S*H was a really great sitcom with a lot of heart. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on May 4, 2011, 3:59 pm

Miami Vice - TV Shows
I once saw a poster of Alfalfa and Buckwheat of "Our Gang" fame 'updated' to Miami Vice complete with those 80's threads. No surprise that "Our Gang" has proven timeless despite its Depression origins while "Miami Vice" proved dated almost as soon as it aired despite [because?] of the hype. What are Don Johnson and Phillip Michael Thomas doing these days anyway? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 4, 2011, 3:52 pm

Facts of Life, The - TV Shows
DEFINITELY when Mrs. Garrett left. Her character (originally on Diff'rent Strokes) was the cornerstone on which TFOL was built. She was the unquestioned matriarch of the group as well as the glue that held them together as a tightly-knit "family". When her sister replaced her, things just went irreversibly downhill, including the combative Blair-Jo friendship, which was fun and touching in high school and college, but seemed to deteriorate as the series started winding down, as Blair got more insulting of Jo and Jo more apt to just sit and take it. DEFINITELY should've ended when Mrs. G departed, the show just fell apart the last two seasons without her. At least she came back for the reunion movie. -- Submitted By: (sportz75) on May 1, 2011, 4:58 am

Never found white people pretending to be black entertaining. Matter of fact it is quite annoying! -- Submitted By: (stukaman) on May 1, 2011, 1:05 am

ABC World News - TV Shows
ABC World News, like all national news shows NBC, CBS, CNN, FOX all boned belly up when news stopped being news and started being political sounding boards for the left and right. Granted FOX gets a pass because up until their birth conservatives never caught a break from the national news outlets. But I want to hear N E W S!!!! Not commentary! Not opinion! and how bout some good news every now and then!!! I'm tired of the same old chicken little BS sky is falling doom and gloom day in and day out!!!! When I am in the other room and hear one of the national news programs come on I instantly run for my life to the remote and change the channel to any rerun I can get my hands on. -- Submitted By: (stukaman) on May 1, 2011, 1:03 am

Jon and Kate Plus 8 - TV Shows
I never understood the arraction anyone had to this show to begin with! AAAwwwwwww Jon and Kate plus 8! They got 8 little rugrats awwww how cute lets make a show about fake azz people with 8 kids! WHO EFIN CARES!?!?!?? REALLY.....WHO??? Shows like this speak volumes of the mentality of the American TV viewer. The only thing worse than this show are those that found any enjoyment whatsoever from it. If I am ever in a situation where I need to self-induce vomiting, I'll make sure I have a few DVD's of this BS laying around. Won't be any problem puking at all. -- Submitted By: (stukaman) on May 1, 2011, 12:56 am

Whale Wars - TV Shows
I can't wait until the countries that these whale boats are from allow the whalers to install bid 6" guns on deck and 50 cals and whatnot and they blow these libtards to smitherines!!! Now that would be entertainment!!! -- Submitted By: (stukaman) on May 1, 2011, 12:41 am

All in the Family - TV Shows
The show itself never boned but should have let sleeping dogs lie and never came up with ABP, (Archie Bunker's Place). With that being said, in the episode of ABP when Edith dies and Archie finds her one slipper under her bed in the empty room and holds it to his face and starts crying has got to be one of the most gut-wrenching moments on TV ever. To this day if I watched it, all 6'4" and 240 lbs of me would cry like a little schoolgirl. AITF was by far one of the top 3 greatest TV shows period of all time! -- Submitted By: (stukaman) on May 1, 2011, 12:36 am

Saturday Night Live - TV Shows
SNL boned in the mid-199o's when it went from being a great comedy show to a political, mean-spirited attack forum for the left-wing hacks of Hollywood. It's one thing to make fun of Gerald Ford falling down the stairs of AF-1 like Chevy Chase used to do back in the day, but eventually they just got downright disrespectful and nasty. I hope this show burns in hell soon and everyone remotely associated with this POS show is out of work!!! 'Nuf said!!! -- Submitted By: (stukaman) on May 1, 2011, 12:16 am

Pee-Wee's Playhouse - TV Shows
(Reposted from the Wayback Machine, not mine) "I remember the one where Cowboy Curtis (Larry Fishburne) was talking to Miss Yvonne. She complained her pipes were "backed up". Curtis' reply was, "I know what you need fixed, Miss Yvonne... And I'VE got the TOOL to fix it." He then reaches down toward his crotch (winking at the camera) and pulls out a monkey wrench. Brilliant, brilliant stuff!" -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 30, 2011, 6:54 pm

South Park - TV Shows
The degree to which I love this show almost frightens me sometimes. (I try to make a point of asking someone at least once every week to respect my authoritah. Last week it was my boss.) By the way, a belated apology to DolFan for mistaking his meaning of the phrase "the right people". -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 30, 2011, 2:42 pm

South Park - TV Shows
South Park is a show that, to me, usually bones and unbones. To me, it's currently in an unboned position, although there may be a time where it bones again. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on April 30, 2011, 12:58 pm

South Park - TV Shows
Just found out that the infamous episode 201 (that poked fun at the media's reluctance to depict Mohammed) is still censored on the recent DVD, even though it was advertised as being uncensored. And then when Trey & Matt tried to explain the situation on the commentary track, the lawyers bleeped that out, too! The terrorists won. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 29, 2011, 10:31 pm

Family Guy - TV Shows
Family Guy started out as an irreverent, but sweet, send up to television and pop culture as well as a half-way decent sitcom. Seth MacFarlane was taking the work he did with Cartoon Network and made it more adult oriented. Much to many people's dismay, it was canceled after three seasons. Then, Fox made the mistake of bring it back. After about two or three years, MacFarlane seemed to have lost his comedic sensibilities. Jokes ran on way too long and the show became too aware of itself. The characters have gone to their logical conclusions (Peter went from dim witted dad to full on retard, Meg went from generic teenager girl to whipping girl, etc.) and the writers have used the show to push their political agenda. The latter can be excused from time to time, but not when it becomes a weekly occurrence. Family Guy, to me, has been a big disappointment. It had a lot of potential, but it threw it away to pander to the lowest common denominator. I'm equally disappointed with Seth MacFarlane. I know he can do better than this. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on April 29, 2011, 6:47 pm

Office, The - TV Shows
The last episode with Steve Carell last night was subpar. It all seemed really forced and rushed. I also hate the inconsistency of DeAngelo Bickers, Will Ferrel's character. I still think the show boned last season, but you can just tell the decline it has taken with last night's episode. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 29, 2011, 10:40 am

Judge Judy - TV Shows
I'd pay serious bucks to see that confrontation too. My own thoughts about this disgusting hag were just posted on the "Reality TV" page. Frankly, though, I feel no particular sympathy for the dolts who are so eager to appear on her show; they are there, rather than in a real courtroom, solely because they are attention whores like she is, and in that sense they deserve a certain measure of the verbal abuse they receive from her. But much of that abuse really is needless, except perhaps as a means of drawing viewers. Bottom line: Wouldn't it be wonderful to see Sheindlin on the receiving end of the sort of venom she's so happy to spit at others? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 2:01 am
