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.

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
The first episode that I truly disliked was the season ten's "Snap Judgement" - the story made no sense at all. To make that big of a deal out of a missing camera that Klinger was returning to Pierce and Hunnicut and then to make it a 2 part story was weak. Unlike some I didn't object the antiwar sentiment but rather the later stories that had weak storylines like Charles's snoring becomes an issue with the whole camp, Winchester won't share his newspaper's with the other kids, Hawkeye suddenly getsmad at BJ for stealing his socks, the boxing day episode (boring), Winchester saves Klingers life and Klinger takes advantage of it, the bathtub episode was silly and the topper of all and worst moment on the series was the finale. The whole storyline about the baby being smothered to death was just sickening. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 28, 2010, 6:19 am

That '70s Show - TV Shows
The special singing show was the big issue with me. Yuck! Eric and Donna Do it again and again and...it was better in the earlier shows when Erica and were wholesome and made fund of Kelso and Jackie using each other, which brings us to the next complaint when Jackie and Hyde start dating as it was funnier when they hated each other. Donna becomes a blonde, Ashton becomes a fame whore (Punked)and various other crappy movies. Then they all graduate and get really stupid jobs and look too old for their parts. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 28, 2010, 6:11 am

Dexter - TV Shows
The death of Rita will probably result in a big decline in the ratings. Also thought the death of Sgt Doakes was a big loss. Annoying characters like Lila the junkie didn't help. However, I have to say that I liked the John Lithgow Trinity killer story until Rita's death. Also I wondered how come no one ever figured out that Dexter was Brian Moser's (the ice truck killer) brother? -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 28, 2010, 5:58 am

Dharma & Greg - TV Shows
I liked the show but didn't care for the so called marital problems episodes. The marital issues seemed contrived like when there is more miscommunicatino than any real differences between D&G. Dharma kisses a guy as a friendly gesture and is misunderstood or something and it gets blown out of proportion then finally resolved. Appears that someone tried to go dramatic for a moment then went back. This show was better as comedy and didn't need any dramatic overtones. Never boned. Also there was great chemistry between the parents and all the way around. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on February 23, 2011, 4:21 pm

King of Queens - TV Shows
I agree that fat idiot married to the hot chick insult comic has been done before. From what I observed of this show IMHO the main problem is that the husband's attempts to prove his manliness are just silly. The Flinstone's are funnier. Saw an episode where the couple gets lost in the woods because the dopey husband was busy flapping his yap while the row boat drifts away. Naturally he challenges her to evrything from tree climbing to swimming and tries to prove his superiority to women again asserting that he has an infallible memory which naturally makes him aneasy target for the wife's insults. The main problem that this just isn't funny and has been done before and better. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 28, 2010, 5:51 am

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! - TV Shows
What can I say about a show which calls itself BS. The rouble with this whole thing is that every show consists of finding some idiot that is selling BS to the world such as occultists, political radicals, nut jobs, con artists, scams and such and then spend the next 30 minutes listening to the fat guy use the "f" word a lot in attempt to be funny. The trouble is that most of the topics covered here are not really very interesting in the first place and the "guests" are ususally too stupid to know that they are being made fun of anyway. The fat guy isn't really funny and somebody should tell him that saying fuck a lot doesn't make hime funny either. They should rename this show "Boring Shit" -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 28, 2010, 5:44 am

In the Heat of the Night (TV series) - TV Shows
When Virgil left the show and Gillespie begandating the town council woman - felt contrived and dull and preachy. Early episodes with Virgil still pretty good.

Dallas - TV Shows
The dream season and JR meets the devil. This show has the most pathetic final episode of any that I have ever seen. Also JR marrying a teenager was a bad move as well JR in the mental hospital. Pam Ewing's disapperance and Linda Gray's departure made this a prime example of evrything not to do when writing scripts for television shows. Also many of the storylines were just plain stupid and annoying such as Sue Ellen's affair with a college student. Other storylines were dragged out far too long which gave the impression that the writers made it up as they went along and didn't plan anything very well. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 28, 2010, 5:09 am

Smurfs, The - TV Shows
Many people will attest that The Smurfs began their boning when the Smurflings came along. I sort of disagree with that. IMO, some of the later season episodes had more colorful animation than the earlier seasons and made the show a bit more fun. Then more characters came such as Grandpa Smurf, Scruple (who was Gargamel's apprentice starting w/ Season 6 and IMO, MUCH smarter than Gargamel is), Nanny, etc. IMO, the penultimate BtF for the Smurfs was the dreadful 9th season, when instead of the series taking place in Smurf Village, they now began traveling through time. But why the need to collect crystals in every friggin' episode of that 9th season?! The other reason why, IMO the 9th season sucked was b/c they significantly downsized the number of some of the original Smurfs that were around in the previous seasons. By the 9th season, you can tell that the writers for this show was definitely running out of ideas and that The Smurfs were tired out by the time Season 9 came. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on November 27, 2010, 6:55 pm

Oliver Beene - TV Shows
I don't know what they were thinking with that creepy gay kid. Not only was he a one-joke stereotype (He grows up to be gay! Get it? That's the joke!), the whole concept was ridiculous. A kid that effeminate would have a rough time in today's world, but this was supposed to be 1962! He would have been beaten to a pulp on a daily basis! There was another creepy episode where Oliver and gay kid's sister go into a closet and then emulate their parents' "bedroom sounds". Cue two 11 yer-olds'sexual moaning. Not sad to see this show gone. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 26, 2010, 3:00 pm

Undercover Boss - TV Shows
Boned with The SUBWAY episode. Let me prefix by saying Undercover Boss started out as a very educational, documentary-esqu series but quickly turned formula-matic. As of late I've been specifically offended by the "charity" the Bosses bestow on the few deemed worthy. Luck of the draw that they happened to be in the right place at the right time and happened to say the right things, while rubbing elbows with the Boss/Trainee. I have been both an employee and employer and for an employer to just willie nillie give out $1,000's when there may be others in more need, JUST BASED ON A DAY OR TWO OF WORKING TOGETHER. Well....., its just insanity I tell ya! Now we have the Subway episode. If it where shot in Black and White grainy film I would have though I was watching a slap stick short from the 1940's. Maybe it's that it wasn't the CEO but one of his underlings. Though if the guy on the show was any indication of the disconect of the front office with the field, then they (Subway) should take a page from Disney's handbook book and make the "behind the scenes" people work a few days a year out in the trenches. Not sure which I'm disappointing in more: Subway Sandwich Shops or Undercover Boss. Both have probably lost me as a patron. And to be fair, I've waited a day to write this to make sure I felt the same after thinking about it for a while. -- Submitted By: (TikiCarol) on November 22, 2010, 10:22 pm

My Two Dads - TV Shows
Cheesy 80s television at its worst. Followed the "bachelor men raising daughters, hilarity ensues" late 80s formula that was done with Three Men and a Baby and Full House. At least those two shows had some concept of realism (some, not a ton). The premise of this show was flawed from the get go. The judge would NOT have put the daughter into that uncomfortable of a living situation, the two men would NOT have agreed to move in together, a paternity test would have been done before she was given to them, it was just completely unrealistic and super cheesy. I really like Paul Reiser. He did a great job in Beverly Hills Cop and Mad About You, and his comedy is great, but he was horribly out of place on this show. However, he was almost cast as Danny Tanner, and this show was a weak copycat of Full House, so who knows. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 19, 2010, 3:56 pm

I think this show originally was supposed to be about 2 gay men raising a daughter, but in the 1980's, it was considered to be too controversial for American television so they made it about 2 best friends who years earlier, had dated the same woman around the same time and when she died, she named both of them as "guardians" of the daughter; not saying which one was the actual biological father.

It's weird how whenever a relative of a character would guest star, KOTH would always screw up the way the character has been previously described. Peggy's mother has already been mentioned and also Peggy's brother, who was supposed to be a wimpy guy that looked like Peggy. But they also got Dale's father wrong too. He was previously depicted as looking, sounding, and behaving similar to Dale. When he actually appeared, he was a flaming gay man than didn't look or sound at all like Dale. The episode with Boomhauer's brother Patch was weird too because Patch called his brother (Jeff) by his last name, "Boomhauer". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 19, 2010, 12:22 am

Knight Rider (1982) - TV Shows
Wow, I loved the "evil twin" episodes (KARR and Garthe Knight) as a kid. I think those are the few episode storylines I actually remember. It was nice having some supervillians for Michael and KITT to face off against instead of the usual '80s TV crooks of the week. (Bank robbers, arms smugglers, drug dealers.) Just rented the Garthe episodes from Netflix and they were still fun. I guess I'm in the minority, but I thought Hasselhoff was perfect for this campy show. He was a likable protagonist; good-looking enough for female viewers, but not too pretty to turn off male viewers. He also had a Shatneresque hamminess that fit the material he was given well. Also William Daniels was great at pulling off the somewhat snobby smart-asses KITT. Every kid in America (and probably quite a few adults) wanted one of those talking super-cars. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 18, 2010, 1:54 pm

I vote for Gundam Wing. It was set in an "alternate universe" from Mobile Suit Gundam (in other words, non-canon) yet ripped off a lot of stuff wholesale from the original.

The annoying thing is that this cheap cash-in version became the most popular version of Gundam in the United States. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 18, 2010, 1:39 pm

Dancing With the Stars - TV Shows
This show sucks. It's cheesy and corny with its fake built-up drama and relatively lax definition of "star." Star is defined as retired sports stars, Olympic champs (about the highest caliber of star on the show and the only ones I can semi tolerate, besides Stacy Keibler), washed-up C-listers and anyone from Disney's lineup of teenage shows. Tom Bergeron always looks like he'd rather be anywhere else, Brooke Burke is wooden and doesn't know how to read a room, the judges try to one up each other with their stuffy arrogant feedback, the pros are smug and a bit overly annoying, the routines are pretty much the same season after season. I watch this piece of trash because of my wife, but I think this season is the last straw. Bristol Palin still being on the show is pathetic. She should have been off weeks ago. Instead, Rick Fox, Brandy and the girl from The Hills, much better dancers, are given the boot. The judges and host then get mad even though they give viewers the power to vote. If you don't like the results, don't let the viewers vote! Probably too late though, as other stars that shouldn't have won have in the past (Don Osmond? Really???) The monster is beyond control. Soon, look for more "stars" like Kate Gosslin and Bristol Palin to pollute this mess. And to top it off, the highest rated show in America. God help us. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on November 18, 2010, 11:54 am

Denver, the Last Dinosaur - TV Shows
Whoever really voted for "still rocks" couldn't possibly have ever seen this show. In fact, I don't think anyone has ever seen this show. If they have they've blocked it from their memory like me, cause it was TERRIBLE. Be ashamed of yourself for looking it up on YouTube, yeah, I'm talking to you. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on November 17, 2010, 9:07 pm

Four Weddings - TV Shows
I loathe, detest, despise, and abhor game shows or reality shows about weddings. The most unpleasant and disagreeable people rear their ugly heads. Makes me think of Bridezillas. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 17, 2010, 8:52 pm

Fatal Attractions (Animal Planet) - TV Shows
I said it in another topic, and I'll say it again. It's a quote from Calvin and Hobbes. "You can take the tiger out of the jungle, but you can't take the jungle out of the tiger." It's CRAZY to want to own a deadly or poisonous animal that you can neither tame nor train. Yeah, I know, those who do/want to think it's cool to have a dangerous pet. But they can/will turn on you one day. The people who wind up as an episode of Fatal Attractions aren't admired for being cool because they own a deadly pet...they're ridiculed for being stupid enough to own a deadly pet which ends up killing them. You want a pet to look cool? Get a cat or a dog. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 17, 2010, 8:41 pm

Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. - TV Shows

Blackstar - TV Shows
Well, this is either going to be an incredibly racist show about a black celebrity or... What the hell is this show? Pink dwarves? He-Man's Native American brother? What's going on here?!? -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on November 17, 2010, 7:18 pm

Saturday Supercade - TV Shows
This had to be the strangest mix of characters for a TV show. How do you pick which crappy video games to shove into this show? It kind of like if you gave the "super" heroes that were auditioning for the team in Mystery Men their own show. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on November 17, 2010, 6:36 pm

Pirates of Dark Water, The - TV Shows
I remember first watching the (I think) 5 episode min-series and loving it. The animation was great and I liked the concept of the story. I was kinda pissed when there were no more episodes and I wanted more! Then, they made more and I was pissed since the animation took a huge dump and the story got stupid. Be careful what you wish for. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on November 17, 2010, 6:20 pm

This show is just as unfunny and as hard to understand as getting connected to a call center in India... It just hurts. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on November 17, 2010, 6:14 pm

Fatal Attractions (Animal Planet) - TV Shows
It sounds like a stereotype, I know--but I swear, nearly all the people I've ever met who were into those kind of inappropriate 'pets' seem to fit it. I've never really liked these kinds of shows, because, for one, they seem to encourage people to try and own animals which really weren't meant to be domestic pets, and secondly, because they mostly seem to take this approach to nature that it's something to be teased and taunted and 'stood up to'. I thought what happened to Steve Irwin was sad, but he was a perfect example of that. He didn't really interact with or respect the animals on his productions, so much as try to put on some carnival act where he was 'facing off' with a potentially dangerous wild creature, and he finally ended up dead. What happened to him was a fluke, but I think he'd have wound up having something lethal occur eventually with the way he behaved around these animals. These kinds of shows,imo, don't promote real understanding or respect for nature, the wild, and wild animals--they turn it all into some sort of titillating reality sideshow production, which is wrong. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 17, 2010, 3:13 pm

Fatal Attractions (Animal Planet) - TV Shows
That's interesting, elainewood, re: "virility issues". I've always suspected that there were "small penis pets" just like there are small penis cars. The guys that have to own the big mean dog, or the longest, thickest snake should be ridiculed more often. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 16, 2010, 10:05 pm

Walking Dead, The - TV Shows
I hate zombies so much; they are my "end of the world scenario" ultimate horror. This show is very well done; the survivors of the zombiocalypse are actually smart and seem to know how to survive unlike most of the zombie movies you see. The only down side is that the first season is only six episodes, I need more! -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on November 16, 2010, 1:02 pm

Charlie & Co. - TV Shows
The late Flip Wilson (who'd been a hot comedian in the early 70's) and the legendary singer Gladys Knight may have been teamed for this because the pairing may have looked great on paper. However; these two had like zero chemistry or believability as married parents. I will say that Miss Knight actually seemed to take her job seriously as a comedic straight woman and was somewhat maternal to the teen+ kid cast members. I'm sorry Flip Wilson died; however,as far as I could see, he just seemed to walk through this part(the title role) as though he was mad he was no longer a top ranking comedian and was doing this to just pay the bills. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 16, 2010, 12:07 pm

Fatal Attractions (Animal Planet) - TV Shows
Years ago, I used to work in a pet store. I love snakes and I think they're amazing creatures, but I frankly don't think they were meant to be owned as pets. I always hated to see one of them be sold to some halfwitted teen or guy with obvious virility issues (those were predominantly the two types who purchased them, based on my experience), because you knew damn well that about 97% of the time the idiot wasn't going to care for it properly, and it would soon die in captivity. Agreed, most people I've encountered who a have a yen for these types of 'exotic' pets very often seem to have some real issues going on with them. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 16, 2010, 9:15 am

Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher - TV Shows
Yeah--Beck, O'Reilly, several of those guys were around back then, but the real media rampage they're now on hadn't started yet, and they weren't continually in your face the way they are now, they were more semi-local phenomena in those days. I hope their vogue passes away soon, but I'm not too hopeful about that. Maher, I think didn't really get his start on MADTV, but I think appearing on the show in his early days helped give him a lot of the exposure he used to get to where he is now. I miss MADTV too; especially early on, some of their stuff was hilarious, way better than what SNL had collapsed into being by that time. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 16, 2010, 8:19 am

Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher - TV Shows
Was Beck even popular when MadTV was on the air, though? I thought he was a recent thing. I also don't watch any of these loudmouths, liberal or conservative. I do miss the MadTV. I think Maher may have played himself on some of the MadTV skits IIRC, so he must have been OK with them. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 15, 2010, 3:42 pm

Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - TV Shows
Fat Albert was something I watched when I was a kid, and I now have two volumes on DVD - the early episodes did a great job in teaching important lessons without being overly preachy or completely dull. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on November 15, 2010, 2:17 pm

Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher - TV Shows
MADTV, like its progenitor MAD Magazine, only parodies things that are deemed to have some worth, travoltron. That's why they don't bother with people such as Glenn Beck and his crowd; they're already beyond parody, being nothing but self-parodies from the get-go--and they're also too mediocre to create an effective parody from. Maher should be (and probably is) flattered by MAD's attentions to him. That they do so just shows he's got some true cultural heft--more so than any of the right wing nutjobbers, in spite of all their yelling for attention. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 15, 2010, 10:13 am

Four Weddings - TV Shows
It's so heartwarming to see a beautiful, sacred moment, such as a wedding, be turned into a reality show competition, where a bride is judged on what "the overall experience" is for those in attendance. I say, Bitch, please, you ain't paying for this! It's MY wedding...and I'll do whatever the hell I want! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 15, 2010, 7:58 am

Fatal Attractions (Animal Planet) - TV Shows
Unless someone's career is doing biological/zoological research, there is no damn reason to own a Gaboon Viper! Seriously? I'm sorry for the families of these fatalities, but anyone who has a venomous snake or a snake who is big enough to wrap around you and kill you, is a very troubled individual. Love the episode of the guy who was bitten by one of his many venomous snakes and while he's in the hospital...the cops went to his house to secure the snakes and find all this bomb-making paraphenalia! When the guy wakes up from his snake-bite induced coma, the cops are like: "OK, you're going to jail!" At times like that, you can't help but wonder that maybe the snake who bit him was just practicing "natural selection". -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 15, 2010, 7:51 am
