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.

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

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.

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

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

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
I will say that much of the sixth season seemed hastily slapped together, as if the writers had only a few days to write a whole season's worth of material. (Chris M's death was not only deeply anticlimactic but had the feel of a last-minute decision.) And I'd be lying if I said I liked the ending at the time it aired. (It was only years later that I came to appreciate what Chase was trying to do there. Could he have done it in a more decisive manner? Sure. But I've never written for television so what do I know?) All in all, though, the journey meant more to me than the journey's completion. (By the way, as much as I liked The Shield, I don't place any more weight on the opinions of that show's producers, vis-a-vis up-in-the-air endings, than I do on anyone else's. If anything, those guys played it a little too safe with their own finale.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 12, 2011, 8:06 pm

Maude (TV series) - TV Shows
OF COURSE Maude was a hypocrite! (For the record, so was Mike Stivic, aka Meathead.) That was one of the points Norman Lear & Co sought to make in their shows. Just because they were all liberals didn't mean they couldn't poke fun at the contradictions and double standards (and insecurities!) of many members of their own political tribe. In fact, the characters in Lear sitcoms who tended to be the most consistent, and consistently honest and decent, were those - both Florida and Edith Bunker come to mind - who didn't wave their political views in everyone's faces. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 12, 2011, 7:47 pm

Oz - TV Shows
I voted "never boned", but I never lost sight of the ridiculousl premise of this show, or of the increasingly unrealistic story arcs. The only saving grace was the acting, which was consistently first-rate. I'm glad so many of the alumni have had so much post-Oz success. (It's especially nice to see J.K.

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
I'm the one guy on earth that hasn't seen this show, but here's my opinion on the finale anyways. They hyped that finale like CRAZY. Everyone was talking about it. Then when it aired, a lot of people were seriously wondering if their cable went out during the ending. I think if your finale looks like a technical glitch, you've done something wrong. They really shouldn't have hyped the episode up like they did if they were going to do a non-ending. I remember Ray Romano went out of his way to warn people that the Everybody Loves Raymond finale was going to be a pretty typical episode. And that seemed to work because I don't recall any complaints about it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 12, 2011, 4:00 pm

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
It feels as if we are beating a dead horse here. I never watched season 6 since it aired on HBO the first time. It was so bad the first time that I just wanted them to end it and put it out of it's misery. I don't remember the storylines from that season and I prefer it that way. Once you've seen old friend die of cancer you don't want to relive it. RIP The Sopranos - it was good for four seasons - ok for a fifth and just awful in the sixth.

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
I think the bottom line is this- Seasons 1 & 2 of Sopranos was some of the best television of all time. 3,4, and 5 gave us some good story arcs and great episodes, season 6 pts 1/2 meandered into preachy liberal hogwash from characters that we hated with some gangster stuff in the background. The ending was appropriate for how far the show fell- there were about 100 differnt ways this should have gone (LRBLOOM I agree with almost all of your changes- thanks for sharing!!) from after season 2 til the end, and they picked about the most unsatisfying way to wrap it up. Yes there are open ended story lines- but some kick ass and leave you wanting more- SEE THE SHIELD FOR HOW TO DO THIS DAVID CHASE- and some that are limp wristed excuses for 2 seasons of straight fish boning. And for anyone who still defends how this show went out- remember that the writers from THE SHIELD made fun of the writers on the Sopranos and made it a point to tell their audience they WOULDNT DO A "SOPRANOS" FOR THE FINALE!!! I just talked to a friend who is rewatching the series and he feels the same- the show just gets bad, and preachy and ends on a terrible note- we (Mrs. Chubby Rain and I) watched the series (as documented on here via comments) last year and came to the same conclusion- wasted potential leads to a series ending fish boning that was the nadir (anit-climax) of 4 mediocre seasons that were coasting off two of the greatest seasons of scripted TV of all time- 'nuff said.... -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 11, 2011, 6:52 pm

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
It ended as it ended and all's well that ends well. From the moment that episode aired people started bitching. The stories pretty much resolved themselves. Either the characters died or went to prison or both. The problem with this show wasn't the ending, but the middle. Rewrite it - Big Pussy lives and Jimmy Altierei is the rat. Ralph Cifaretto gets killed the first he beats up a girl. Employee of The Month - Dr Melfi (and/or her ex)consult Tony about attacker, which makes Tony and Dr Melfi partners in crime. AJ never has "therapy" because his dad is a gangster and canbu yhim anything he wants anyway. Tony and Carmela and the never seperate. Carmela never complains about Tony's other women after all it's a small price to pay to live in the lap of luxury. The soccer coach dies under mysterious circumstances in jail. Newspaper people cover it up. Vito stays straight and faithful to hsi wife until the bitter end. Uncle JR retains his senses and neve shoots anyone. Adrianna does five to ten while Christopher waits for her. Pie-Oh-My, Irina, Gloria Trillo, and Valentino don't exist. Christopher stays out of Hollywood. We never hear of Caitlin, the section eight roommate and Noah Tennenbaum. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 11, 2011, 12:52 pm

Disagree again. In real life loose ends are frequently never resolved, but this is entertainment. That's why people in that business get paid the big bucks. And in entertainment if loose ends aren't resolved at the end of an 8-year show, then why am I watching? I just don't believe people watch shows for years just to see things be even more muddled plot-wise than when it began. That's why there was such a backlash about Lost. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 11, 2011, 12:53 am

I agree that the unconventional ending wasn't an issue. Life went on and most the associates of the family were dead so this was just a way of saying that life went on and that was it.

The unconventional ending didn't bother me at all. Who says everything has to be wrapped up nicely with a clearly understood, satisfying ending? That's not how life works. Life is full of ambiguities and incompletions and uncertainties, and I think David Chase was wise to bring a series which he often allowed to venture a bit too far into fantasy territory back to something near cold reality by giving it an ending that challenged our (often unreasonable) sensibilities. (In other words, he treated us like adults instead of children who need to be spoon-fed. I can't help but appreciate that.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 3:47 pm

South Park - TV Shows
I just saw a rerun of 2008 episode called "Britney's New Look" in which the idea was to parody the press and public reaction to Britney's meltdown/breakdown. While I was one of the first to admit that the recent rash of celebrity train wrecks wasn't funny in the first place, South Park's treatment of the same subject was sickening, naueating and just plain wrong. The idea is that the public sat with baited breath waiting for Britney to become the latest "Buffy" or Dana Plato. When a person does have a serious problem, we the public aren't sitting around like bloodthirsty vultures hoping they will croak. The majority of the public got tired of hearing whether Britney went outside without her shoes or about the inside vultures picking the bones. The majority kept wondering when will they put her in the hospital. I could almost appreciate what South Park was trying to say this would serve as an example of the kind of sanctimony that we can live without on this show. The idea of the press harassing a famous person - ok I'll buy that. But to have the nerve to imply that we are all so heartless as to watch someone blow their brains out and not do anything is sick. I don't even like Britney. She can't sing, has no real talent and is primarily a T&A show, but I didn't say I wanted her dead. This cartoon portrays a headless Britney carrying on as if no one even noticed her is insulting to the rest of the world. No one found it entertaining to constantly be flooded with stories about Britney's self-destruction. It's about time somebody got this kind of trash off the front pages and into the rehab centers instead of subjecting some one to cruelty of amateur comedians coast to coast with the implication that the public enjoys this. Not entertaining and not funny. South Park crossed a line by insinuating that people do enjoy watching a person destroy themselves in the public eye for cheap thrills. South Park are no better and speaking of train wrecks, they shopuld look at their own ratings. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 8, 2011, 1:04 pm

I remember one episode where Lola (the third wheel) caught them in the act. All we saw was Dog stand there, close his eyes and sigh. Then Lola snapped a picture.

"Trust me....I know what I'm doing." A brilliant series, and maybe a little ahead of its time, Sledge Hammer wasn't around long enough to bone. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 1, 2011, 3:55 am

Friends - TV Shows
The last great classic sitcom. Sure, it pulled every possible, illogical boning move it could, but it also gave up some of the funniest moments in TV, some of the most classic quotes, and the ensemble of six was and still is one of the strongest ensembles in TV. I think we all look back at it now as a reminder of a bygone era, but that's a lot of TV. Sitcoms from the 80s don't make as much sense as much more current sitcoms do. Friends may not be timeless, and it is far from perfect, but I can't think of many stronger shows that weren't on a slow death-march from their seventh season on. Friends had an undeniable momentum from beginning to end. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on March 31, 2011, 1:35 pm

Bionic Woman, The - TV Shows
Never rocket science but sometimes a fun way to pass the time. Unfortunately, the last season got too bogged down in UFOs and it just seemed to run out of steam. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 31, 2011, 10:51 am

Parenthood (2010) - TV Shows
Agree that the actresses playing the teen cousins look older than the characters should but they do very good work- especially Mae Whitman who plays Amber. However; I'm glad they actually had the deal with the discovery of a biracial grandchild instead of totally ignoring it (and the existance of his father the family's younger son) like they did in the 1990 series. Also, I'm glad they fleshed out the characters more and it's interesting,too, that the older son's problem child got a definition of Asperger's here instead of just being considered high strung! Lastly, it's intriguing to me in the 'update' that the grandparents so are proto-Boomers who were counter-culture types who raised a family(as in Stephen and Elyse Keaton of "Family Ties") instead of having come of age in the 40's and 50's as in the original movie and series- yet somehow kept the dynamics intact! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 31, 2011, 10:36 am

Cagney & Lacey - TV Shows
OK, I went back and read what happened re Sharon Gless's stalker. It turns out that she threatened suicide but did not actually do the deed before she was taken into custody. She then got six years in prison and let's hope has found her peace since then. I'm posting this so as not to perpetuate a falsehood on the 'Net albeit unintentionally and apologize for having previously put that out there without first checking on the facts. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 31, 2011, 10:28 am

What a Cartoon! Show - TV Shows
Whether you liked the shorts or not, there's no doubt that this show (along with its Nickelodeon counterpart, Oh Yeah Cartoons) was the beginning for several animators, such as John R. Dilworth, Genndy Tartakovsky, Butch Hartman, Craig McCracken, and even Seth McFarlane. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on March 30, 2011, 7:42 pm

Untouchables, The (1993) - TV Shows
I remember William Forsythe started getting this huge ego and started acting like a big deva and future movie star. I think they had to write him out of the show. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 30, 2011, 4:14 pm

Titus - TV Shows
Poor Titus; the whole theme of this show (based on his real dysfunctional life) was how his whole family sucked except for his awesome wife. Then his wife left him shortly after this show was axed. It's just like when Howard Stern made that movie all about how great his wife is and she subsequently left him for some rich guy and took half his assets. Note to men in the industry: DON'T DO THIS!!! -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 29, 2011, 8:59 pm

Reba - TV Shows
This was/is sort of "One Day At A Time" mixed with "Married With Children" with none of the charm or sincerity of either. The two things don't mix. One is the story of a single mother and the other is dysfunctional humor. Reba is the mother that everyone comes to for advice on moral dilemmas which is to say that she's the straight man to several contrived idiots and the studio audience roars with laughter. I've seen better and I've seen worse. If Reba hired people to play dumb so she could look smart you have the idea. I vote from day one this is a loser. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on March 29, 2011, 9:02 am

Hogan's Heroes - TV Shows
Unbelievable that Nazi's were so gullible and naive and that Hogan is able to operate spy ring right under their noses without arousing suspicions -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on March 29, 2011, 5:22 am

Little House on the Prairie - TV Shows
Really this show is the textbook example of what can happen when a show's star wrests creative control away from the producers. I agree, the early stuff was good, but Landon turned the show into a preachy ego-trip. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 29, 2011, 1:46 am

Drawn Together - TV Shows
I've never caught an episode. At first, I thought it might have been kind of funny. However, all that changed when I learned more about it. I recall a post on the Scottish site describing a gag: the pig, Spanky, poops on a pizza, then says he didn't remember ordering it with sausage. Then there were the other posts mentioning how it's rife with racist terms. From that point on, I realized how lucky I am to have missed this show. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 28, 2011, 6:01 pm

Little House on the Prairie - TV Shows
The original TV movies in 1974, that preceded the series, were excellent! As were the books that it was all based on written by real Laura Ingalls Wilder. The series, however, got too "dramatic" and the innocent simplicity of it was lost. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on March 28, 2011, 9:54 am

State, The - TV Shows
Never boned. This show is still hilarious. To quote Louie, "I wanna dip my balls in it!" -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 26, 2011, 12:56 pm

TMZ on TV - TV Shows
The most boring show on television. I wouldn't even print one of the website's articles and waste paper by wiping my ass with it. Why would I waste a half hour by watching the show? -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 25, 2011, 6:35 pm

Little House on the Prairie - TV Shows
Until TMZ came along, this was, hands down, the most boring show on television. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 25, 2011, 6:33 pm

Three's a Crowd (sitcom) - TV Shows
I'm in the minority here, but much like "The Ropers", I enjoyed this show. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 25, 2011, 6:31 pm

King of the Hill - TV Shows
Never boned. Thankfully it ended when it did, or else they would have either had to replace Brittany Murphy or kill off the Luanne character. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 25, 2011, 6:27 pm

MADtv - TV Shows
The golden age of this show was when the cast had Mo Collins, Will Sasso, Debra Wilson, Nicole Sullivan, Alex Borstein, Aries Spears, and Michael McDonald. (Nicole Parker, Bobby Lee, and Frank Caliendo had their moments as well.) -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 25, 2011, 6:17 pm

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
"All In The Family" had (both directly and indirectly) spawned a couple of successful spin-offs. This wasn't one of them. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 25, 2011, 6:08 pm

WWE Friday Night Smackdown - TV Shows
Once I was surfing through the program listing, saw WWE on SciFi and that just struck me as being completely incongruous. But what PYL said explains it. Thanks for the info! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on March 24, 2011, 6:40 am

WWE Friday Night Smackdown - TV Shows
I think the main reason they did that was because of NBC Universal. Before, when, for instance, if the WWE wanted to have, Kofi Kingston or Jack Swagger or Edge (some Smackdown stars) to make an appearance on Raw, they would of had to clear it with NBC Universal, since their appearance on Raw could of been akin to promoting a network not under the NBC Universal umbrella (even if they were employed by the WWE). Now being on SyFy, it's one less hinderance for the WWE. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 23, 2011, 8:56 pm

Friends - TV Shows
Actually Stephanie, Friends may well have set the trend in that regard of people hanging out in very narrow small groups who don't even really care that much about each other, but care about non-members of their group even less. Like, for example, Hot In Cleveland. (See what I did there?) -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on March 23, 2011, 6:41 pm

Drawn Together - TV Shows
This show was funny at first but the premise wore extremely thin after a while. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 23, 2011, 6:00 pm

WKRP in Cincinnati - TV Shows
Never boned. In fact, the "very special" episode about the incident at the Who concert was necessary because a show about a Rock radio station in Cincinnati would need to address a tragic incident that took place in Cincinnati during the time of its current run. I also believe they covered the incident remarkably well. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 23, 2011, 5:54 pm

House - TV Shows
Too many dream sequences. Anytime someone acts out of character, or an improbable scene occurs, I now expect it to be a dream or hallucination. Too many ridiculous and off the wall stunts that House pulls now. Really, a song and dance segment, come on now! The new crew...Boring. Kal Penn made the right decision to get out when he did. If this crap was in the first season then it would have never got past the first year. Oh, and if I hear autoimmune or myocardial infarction one more time on this show I'll scream! -- Submitted By: (rixter) on March 23, 2011, 5:53 pm

WWE Friday Night Smackdown - TV Shows
In terms of the show itself, it probably will never completely jump the shark; however, I think the move to SyFy was a bad one because (besides a decrease in ratings) it was meant to be an OTA network show, and I say that for three reasons. One: it debuted on an OTA network. Two: it was the only show that made UPN, The CW, and MyNetwork TV come close to being even remotely relevant. Three: The WWE already had a main show for cable, which was Monday Night Raw, and I doubt that moving Smackdown to a cable network was necessary. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on March 23, 2011, 5:50 pm

Friends - TV Shows
I know it's for the purpose of the sitcom, but the whole concept of ONE group of people hanging out only with that ONE group of people....all the time - day in and day out, very irritating. It's almost incestuous! If an "outsider" was allowed in the "inner circle", they didn't last long. Even the "Seinfeld" group had other significant outlets and relationships besides each other! And they didn't marry each other, either! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on March 22, 2011, 10:29 am
