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.

One of the best cartoons I ever watched. Who could ever forget King Bob with his cut-out football helmet that shape like a crown or the tribal kindergardeners. Before they were The Plastics from "Mean Girls", they were the The Ashleys. I could never forget that episode when The Ashleys jinx Gus and Gus could never talk less somebody says his name and he almost went the whole school day without talking until TJ finds out and says his name. Or the time when TJ was in time-out and had to stay in the box and he almost went crazy until he realize that the box is nothing but drawn out chalkboard on the ground and can walk out at anytime.

If a show is bad from the beginning, that is not jumping the shark. Jumping the shark happens when mistakes are made in desperate attempts to cash in on a show that should have been left to die with dignity. A show being bad from the start is a matter of personal preference in a show. Even if it's bad to everyone, it's just a bad show. It's not the same thing. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 22, 2011, 6:01 pm

Reno 911! - TV Shows
The second season ended in charging all the officers and shutting down the Reno sheriff's office. The end of the show. Always intended to be with no opening left to continue it. When DVD releases boosted sales, Comedy Central got the really bad idea to bring it back from cancellation and pretty much ruined the show. Don't bring a show back if you already closed it up. Bad idea. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 22, 2011, 5:59 pm

Whose Line Is It Anyway? - TV Shows

Whose Line Is It Anyway? - TV Shows
Great show. I like both versions, but lean more towards Drew since unlike The Ceej I find Drew pretty funny. Wayne Brady bugs me with his mugging, though. I've tried getting into Drew's new show on GSN and for some reason I'm having trouble warming up to it though it's pretty much the same cast and the same improv comedy. Something's missing. Maybe the points really do matter, since they aren't on this new version and it pales to Whose Line. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 22, 2011, 11:14 am

Whose Line Is It Anyway? - TV Shows
I disagree Ceej. If put with the right group with the right setup, Drew is funny (especially with self-deappreacaiting humor). You could point to his new show on GSN, which sucks, but what they got going on there doesn't work, at least for me. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on April 22, 2011, 4:11 am

That's a show I never liked. There was a very old version of it with bad plots, uninteresting characters and awful animation. Then I remember one with his son or nephew, with sailing and all, and that was so fogettable that I can't even remember what was the plot. Then he had three small clones living in the city and holy moley, that one crushed any interest I might had to see a Popeye cartoon. -- Submitted By: (Saunich) on April 21, 2011, 11:17 pm

Whose Line Is It Anyway? - TV Shows
The difference between Clive Anderson and Drew Carey is that Clive KNEW he wasn't funny, so he stayed out of the bits. Drew never has been funny, no one ever thought he was except for him, and anyone who said he was was lying to make him feel better because they didn't think they could handle disappointment. The downside is, the rest of us had to suffer through his endless barrage of train wreck shows, not the least of which was his destroyed version of Whose Line. If his mother would have just told him how not funny he was 40 years ago, we wouldn't have to deal with this crap. Another reason honesty is the best policy.* *No representation is to be made that honesty is ALWAYS the best policy. Please use your best judgement when deciding whether or not to be honest. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 21, 2011, 10:20 pm

This is not a comment on this show but a message to the people who run this site. It seems "Day 1" in an option on every show, but by definition, a show can't jump the shark before it's established what it's about.

Saturday Night Live - TV Shows
SNL has gone up and down in terms of quality depending on the cast and writers at the time. I guess it will continue to do this until the end of time. It can't really jump the shark because it's making fun of what is rather than trying to be something on its own. However, it does go through really slow patches with unfunny cast and writers but it always makes it through with another hilarious cast and set of writers. They usually make these changes at the beginning of a season so, if you didn't like it this season, check it out at the premier next season, and you might like it this time. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 21, 2011, 11:42 am

The show never really boned; some of the most impressive episodes (and acting) took place during the last couple of years it was on the air (1978-79).

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! - TV Shows
I first noticed the censorship when the Vatican episode in season 7 seemed to disappear without a trace. It aired once, but it's been deleted from the official episode guide and the only mention it ever existed is a tiny episode stating it's not part of the "complete" season on DVD. We know what really happened. Showtime censored it. The lack of many fan-demanded episodes and abundance of completely silly episodes (for example, old people starring Maddox) leads me to believe there's more corporate censorship than the Vatican episode that we just don't know about because it never got its one airing. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 9:06 pm

Daily Show, The - TV Shows
The Ceej, I see what you're saying, but I respectfully disagree. Game shows, news shows, etc. can and do indeed bone the fish. Game shows it can happen when a host changes (Price is Right, Family Feud, Pyramid, Password), rules change (Millionaire), or cast changes (Hollywood Squares: Paul Lynde dying, Match Game: Richard Dawson leaving, etc.)News shows it can happen if a host stays past their time (Larry King). I always thought The Daily Show was at its best in 2006. The show still was seen as a news satire and the cast of characters was perfect (Colbert, Helmes, Carrell, etc.) When the characters left and the show slowly started getting more and more self righteous about liberal issues and the line between satire and reality became more unclear, that's when this show started boning the fish. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 20, 2011, 4:24 pm

Trying to continue this show after John Ritter's unfortunate death would be like trying to continue Roseanne if she had died of a heart attack in the middle of the fifth season.

I'm sort of confused at a lot of shows on here. Game shows, pundit shows, news shows, satirical shows. How do these types of shows jump the shark. The purpose of news satire it to poke fun at current events. By its very definition, it evolves with current events and politics. By its very definition, jumping the shark is impossible. Its listing should be removed because of this. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 2:43 pm

Somebody created a reason about how this show sucked because it wasn't Cheers. Well, let's just ignore the fact that if you compare everything to your favourite thing, everything else will fall short. Becker was far better than anything Cheers could ever hope to be. If I were Ted Danson, I'd be trying to keep my work on Cheers a secret. That was an embarrassing role. Becker, on the other hand, was hilarious. At least up until the point things started going weird with Reggie and ultimately had her leave the show. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 12:52 pm

Home Improvement - TV Shows
This is one of the few shows where the changes to format actually improved it rather than destroyed it. The first two season followed more or less a basic formula with very few deviations from it. The third season started getting more involved and deviated even more from this formula. The show started really picking up in the fourth season when Jill decided to go back to college, thus adding intelligent humour in the mix with the slapstick that could not have carried the show another full season. It made a few mistakes along the way, but nothing that compromised the integrity of the show in more than a one-off sense. I would say this is one of the very few shows that have never jumped the shark. Don't get me wrong. If Tim Allen had gotten his way and gotten a ninth season picked up, this show would have gone straight to hell within the first two episodes. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 12:30 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
Even though the roots were shaken a few times before this (for example, Sarah Chalke stopped trying to play the same Becky Lecy Goransan established during her third episode in the role) the lottery win was so much of a shark jumper the phrase should have changed from "jump the shark" to "win the lottery." I can only assume the phrase didn't shift because if we said, "Sliders won the lottery after Arturo was killed off," it would sound like a compliment. The Conners winning the lottery was the single worst downward shift in the history of television. That's not to say the episodes that followed weren't hilarious. Oh, they were. The problem I (and most fans have) is that the story was compromised to get those laughs. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 12:23 pm

Sliders - TV Shows
They killed of Professor Arturo long before Rhys-Davies left the show. The show jumped the shark at the end of Season 2, Episode 8 when they left the original Arturo and went sliding with the double. There were a few good episodes between that and the end of season two, but that marked the beginning of the end and the show went straight to hell with no rest stops at the season 2 finale. Up until that point, it was a great show, though. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 10:35 am

I stopped watching when the premise of her show went from discussing current issues to shoving self-improvement down our throats. She would have some "expert" on to tell us how to live/spend/eat/pray/love, and she would look into the audience and add her two cents. All the while these glassy-eyed Stepford wives would nod in agreement as if it were gospel. Sickening. That and the overbearing adulation of celebrities was finally too much for me.

Celebreties like Britney, Lindsay, Paris and others have gotten where they are with little talent or effort and don't seem to appreciate it. Seeing them self-destruct, however, is not what we are after. The episode depicts a headless Britney (after shooting herself) stalked by the press who are oblivious to her not having a head. The bloodthirsty press stalking suicidal Britney. Paparazzis stalking celebreties is an old issue. Invasion of privacy I think is the legal term. There is an audience for sleazy tabloid journalism, but most fans(including Britney's) would most likely be satisfied with an autograph not broadcasting that Britney went to the gas station restroom with no shoes on. Matt and Trey should should stick to writing comedy and leave the sanctimony to somebody else, especially when it takes the sickeningly maudlin, morose form that this did. I also want to state that somewhere intime there needs to be some sort of standard for this brand of "gross out" entertainment that everyone is so fond of these days. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 17, 2011, 11:20 am

South Park - TV Shows
It's not that I have any "bloodlust", I just want people like Sheen and Britney and Lindsey Lohan to get out of the news permanently. If the only way for that to happen is for them to die from their hedonism (and apparently it is), then so be it. I'm just sick and tired of people like this being talked about 24/7. And then afterwards they can finally contribute to society for a change when their bodies are vivisected and inspected by scientists to see how any human can consume so many drugs and stay upright and conscious for so long. I'd like to know the answer to that one myself. BTW I loved the episode mocking Paris Hilton. Who apparently doesn't abuse drugs as much the others since I don't recall her being in the news recently. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 16, 2011, 6:22 pm

Ian McShane is brilliant in everything he does, but this monstrosity boned at birth. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 16, 2011, 6:08 pm

South Park - TV Shows
That episode was not a favorite of mine, but Trey & Matt said they based the episode on normally mild-mannered friends of theirs that suddenly had Britney Bloodlust. The recent Charlie Sheen meltdown is similar to Britney's, and people were lapping it up. I saw a piece on the news about Charlie Sheen's disastrous live tour. The reporter interviewed some of the people coming out and they said they were disappointed in the show because they wanted to witness "a trainwreck" or "something catastrophic". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 16, 2011, 2:49 am

Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer, The - TV Shows
Amazing how this trainwreck even got greenlit at all. It's also fascinating how this show managed (without trying) to offend every group of people imaginable. Obviously the slavery issue was the main concern, but others hated the way historical figures were made out to be total buffoons. I remember my mother complaining about the depiction of the Lincolns' (fictional) sexual problems. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 15, 2011, 10:18 pm

South Park - TV Shows
Unfortunately, Irbloom, there are people out there who enjoy watching people wreck/harm/maim themselves. They apparently have the mentality of bloodthirsty spectators at a gladiator match. Some even hope they get to witness the coup de grace. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 15, 2011, 9:10 pm

FF, that's my reaction to about half the shows on TV today. LOL -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 15, 2011, 5:34 pm

Friends - TV Shows
Followed the 90s era tradition of "young 20 somethings unattached living in unaffordable homes in big cities seemingly with no job." I think Friends really started boning when they had guest stars on almost every week. By that point it was easy to see that the writers were gliding by on reputation alone and the effort to make a solid show had pretty much disappeared. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 15, 2011, 11:30 am

Wow! Is that show still on the air? -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on April 15, 2011, 11:03 am

Another World - TV Shows
Here's a reference only hardcore fans from waaaay back would understand: Another World boned when Leon Russom replaced John Fitzpatrick as Willis Frame (who then turned from villain to hero). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 15, 2011, 4:10 am

Odd Couple, The (TV series) - TV Shows
I don't think this show ever boned. It was pretty much the same thing all the way through which may be the secret to great tv. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 15, 2011, 3:21 am

True Hollywood Story - TV Shows
I am so sick of this drivel about mediocre celebreties or the latest train wreck. In other words Jenny McCarthy or Lindsay Lohan. Jenny has no talent just a nice body and since you can see her in back issues of Playboy or on the web why bother. If can stomach Jenny's life story or Bo Derek's and actually keep a straight face while someone points out the "talent" (stop - my sides are splitting) or the "look" that these celevreties have you're a better person than I. Then we can always rerun the "Different Strokes" story or how about Valerie Bertinelli comeback special. Most of these celebreties are overrated and overexposed to the point of nausea. This is like a second rate version of the Biography Channel or something. I always change the channel when this comes on. Why is it that every True Hollywood Story sounds like the one before it. Dullsville...Self-hype...Exploited deceased celebreties...Yawn...Gag...Snore -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 15, 2011, 3:11 am

All My Children - TV Shows
"ABC has canceled All My Children and One Life to Live. Children will be abandoned in September, while One Life will die in January 2012. Both soaps are being replaced by health-related talk shows." - TV Guide.com You have to wonder if this will be an improvement or not? -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 15, 2011, 1:12 am

Curb Your Enthusiasm - TV Shows
It's still a funny show well worth watching. That being said, I think after Season Four is when it boned (or jumped or whatever). A "special hour long show" is a good sign right there and the fifth and sixth seasons were uneven at best, especially when Cheryl left in season six. With Season Seven it seemed to get some of its groove back with the Seinfeld reunion and I hope Season EIght has him reconciling with Cheryl. She's necessary to the show by acting as Larry's seldom heeded concience/voice of reason. -- Submitted By: (MartyRotten) on April 14, 2011, 10:42 pm

Outsourced - TV Shows
I can't imagine any of the many people thrown out of work due to outsourcing getting any sort of enjoyment out of this show. And I still can't figure out how it hasn't gone the way of COP ROCK, SECRET DIARY OF DESMOND PFEIFFER, HELLO LARRY and the millions of other network television embarassments. -- Submitted By: (MartyRotten) on April 14, 2011, 10:31 pm

Venture Bros., The - TV Shows
Okay, I think they were making a little joke in Season Three where Brock escapes being dragged behind the boat and is being attacked by a shark when he breaks free and ambushes (or jumps) the shark and uses him to trap his attacker. -- Submitted By: (MartyRotten) on April 14, 2011, 10:30 pm

Paul Reiser Show, The - TV Shows
I saw the first episode of THIS horrible show today. What was Paul Reiser thinking, more importantly what was NBC thinking allowing this trash on TV. I predict that this show will have an early death. -- Submitted By: (quimbyt) on April 14, 2011, 10:15 pm

It's Garry Shandling's Show - TV Shows
That show was so 'off-the-wall' finding a real bone moment is difficult. One of my favorite bits from TGSS was when they had the Japanese guy sing the theme song for that episode in Japanese. LOL! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on April 13, 2011, 10:58 am

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
I was disappointed in the ending - Sisko's non-death death and all - but this series never came close to boning. It was the darkest, most complex and well-written of all the Star Trek incarnations, and arguably the best-acted too. And it was nice to see Starfleet portrayed as having a dark side (the amoral, CIA-esque Sector 31). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 13, 2011, 4:04 am

Star Trek - TV Shows
Some third-season episodes weren't so bad. "All Our Yesterdays" was fairly well-written, and "The Tholian Web" was quite good. "Day of the Dove" was a rip-snortin' Klingon-heavy episode, of which there were never enough. And who can resist "Turnabout Intruder" (the very last episode of the series), in which Shatner got to portray a woman in a man's body? I'll admit, though, that my own candidate for worst episode was the third-season stinkfest called "Spectre of the Gun". -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 13, 2011, 3:43 am

Ax Men - TV Shows
A stand-alone documentary would have been sufficient. But no; we have to have this soap opera, with its contrived conflicts and a frankly irresponsible competition that might end up getting someone killed. (I live near where the Rygaard crew is based; in real life those guys aren't at each other's throats like they are portrayed on the show as being. The show's producers basically tell them to ham it up, so that's what they do.) And that fool who salvages timber from rivers is little more than a cartoon character. (He is also breaking quite a few laws in doing what he does, and I wish they would hurry up and cart his ass off to jail.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 12, 2011, 8:26 pm
