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.

Lost - TV Shows
I feel Lost is the greatest show ever made and the reason is because it did "Bone the Fish". When the show looked like it could dry up, the creators of the show, Lindelof and Cuse, surprised us with Jack's Flash Forward ("We have to go back Kate"). 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

It's Me Or the Dog - TV Shows
I honestly do not know how Victoria keeps from grabbing the poor dog away from these dumb-ass owners and as she's leaving with her film crew, advising these said dumb-asses to get a goldfish instead! There have been some episodes where I'm wishing the dog would haul off and totally rip apart the owners! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on May 8, 2011, 4:34 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. The same date - 1994 - represents the start of Springer's own descent into worthlessness. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 8, 2011, 1:41 pm

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

That Girl - TV Shows
I thought the show was fluff but fun. What's funny is that when I watched it as a tiny kid, between her surname and her waving a US American flag for no appearant reason in the opening credits, I thought Ann Marie was a recent immigrant from France who'd become a naturalized US citizen! LOL Yeah, I know she didn't have anywhere close to the accent (and it was funny how this exotic temptress of Mediterreanean extraction was supposed to be the bio child of such 'Aryan' looking parents)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 7, 2011, 3:06 pm

Don Kirshner's Rock Concert - TV Shows
I remember my TV going out on me one night, circa 1974, just before this show came on. The featured band was Uriah Heep, and I'd been looking forward to the show all week. Major buzzkill.

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.

I could never get past that dreadful host. Whatever merits the show had were lost on me, as I found her persona too distracting.

Circus of the Stars - TV Shows
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. NBC did try a ripoff flop called "Celebrity Circus" in 2008 with D-list celebs. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 6, 2011, 1:13 am

"Courage." I don't know when Rather started signing off with that word, and I don't think he did it for very long, but that's my Boning Moment. I do agree with DolFan that his role in the Bush National Guard records flap was shameful, but I think Rather had been slowly squandering his credibility for years before that. And when the suits dumped his replacement, the perfectly acceptable Bob Schieffer, in favor of a woman with the gravitas of a piece of Silly Putty, the boning process was complete. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 5, 2011, 2:48 am

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

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
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

I once saw a poster of Alfalfa and Buckwheat of "Our Gang" fame 'updated' to Miami Vice complete with those 80's threads.

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

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

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.

The first two storylines - featuring Ray Sharkey and Kevin Spacey, respectively - were the only ones I found interesting, though I tuned in to the later Garment District story just to see Jerry Lewis and Ron Silver, and a then-unknown Stanley Tucci, chew up the scenery. The Dead Dog Records story was only saved from serious lameness by Tim Curry's performance, and the Mafia succession story at the start of season 3 was just comic-book silly (even with such luminaries as Chazz Palminteri and Michael Chiklis). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 28, 2011, 1:09 am

They had been mostly good episodes as well as few not-so good ones but Smallville will never boned. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 25, 2011, 3:08 pm

Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest..., The - TV Shows
A clever concept poorly executed. The irony of having borderline-retarded "celebs" comment on the antics of borderline-retarded criminals is about as subtle as a runaway train. But since I don't live in a trailer park or wear a mullet or sport tattoos on my neck or labor under a meth addiction, and am therefore outside the show's target demographic, why should I care? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 25, 2011, 12:06 pm

South Park - TV Shows
To go back to my earlier comment about South Park, I don't think they are overly preachy, and when they rip on something, they rip it in such a way that if you disagree with it, you better have a good point, otherwise, you are the very person that they are ripping on, and they usually go off on the right things to rip on. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on April 24, 2011, 9:44 pm

South Park - TV Shows
A-HA! My friend DolFan complains about actors who use their status as a political soapbox - and then he lauds Parker & Stone for using South Park to "bash the right people" (which of course means "people on the left"). If political advocacy is good for the goose, why is it not good for the gander? The fact is that South Park, while generally right-leaning, is not obnoxiously so, and is willing to take shots at right-of-center targets too. (Need I remind any of you of the classic 8th-season episode "Goobacks"?) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 23, 2011, 10:30 pm

Recess - TV Shows
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. This show can't never bone to me! -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 23, 2011, 4:44 am

Doug - TV Shows
As a little kid, I didn't really know there was a Disney's Doug and a Nicklodeon's Doug. All I knew is that Doug and his friends is older and little different when they was on ABC Saturday's mornings. I think for most parts it never bone but the character Roger himself. Roger BTF when his family got rich and no longer Doug's bully. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 23, 2011, 4:24 am

Tosh.0 - TV Shows
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. There is no rule that says Boning cannot occur from Day One -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 22, 2011, 10:18 pm

Tosh.0 - TV Shows
Aside from the fact that this is a site about shows reaching their climax rather than a site about whether or not shows were liked by by the majority, the header says, "Boned when..." So, if the webmaster elects not to remove the day one option, he should change it to, "A bad show can't bone." -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 22, 2011, 8:21 pm

Tosh.0 - TV Shows
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

They should bring back this show! The look on the pervs face when they get caught is priceless and the endless excuses they come up with explaining why they come to the teen's house is funny. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 22, 2011, 2:27 pm

Fatal Attractions (Animal Planet) - TV Shows
Finally saw an episode last night and I absolutely approve. The media usually glorifies people like this and it's refreshing to see a show that doesn't. In fact, this show is a public service. I think anyone with a Beastmaster fantasy would get a reality check by watching it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 22, 2011, 2:06 pm

Whose Line Is It Anyway? - TV Shows
I think PYLrulz was talking about Drew Carey's Improv-a-Ganza, which, while I think the show's OK, I don't find it as funny as Whose Line. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on April 22, 2011, 12:50 pm

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

You mean The Price Is Right? They gave him that to spare us from having to put up with his not comedy. The same reason they gave all the bad comedians game shows. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 22, 2011, 10:45 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

Digimon - TV Shows
Lost interest around Season 4. Maybe I was getting older by the time but the lack of Digimon companions and the whole morphing thing didn't settle well with me. The main cast wasn't all that interesting either. -- Submitted By: (Saunich) on April 21, 2011, 11:20 pm
