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.

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
Exactly. How many years (heck, forget years--how many *weeks*) would a 'heard but not seen' Edith have worked? That would have been a plot device that would've started to look ridiculous very quickly. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on December 24, 2010, 7:37 am

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
Robert, you could say that, but on the flip side, making such a prominent character an unseen one just reeks right off the bat. I could see that for someone that wasn't a big part of the show, but someone like Edith, it had to be all or nothing. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 23, 2010, 3:20 pm

King of the Hill - TV Shows
Irbloom has it right. When the show first aired, it was great satire. But over the course of time, it went from that to nothing more than something stupid, though I would probably attribute it to it running out of material after being on for so long. At least it didn't stay on the air, and just limp on like The Simpsons -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 23, 2010, 3:17 pm

In the Heat of the Night (TV series) - TV Shows
Seeing the show in reruns I noticed that the new Chief just starts to blend well with the others in season 7 then season 8 was only 3-4 episodes before it was canceled. To be fair Carl Weather isn't really given a chance and it was Virgil's pitiful returns as an attorney that were weak. As a detective he seemed a little more authoritative but as a rookie attorney he seems kind of weak and timid, also quite unlike the movie version of Tibbs (Siodney Poiter). Given time I think it could've gone on with Chief Forbes. This is to say that Carl Weathers isn't to blame for this show's BTF moments but rather the return of Virgil Tibbs Attorney At Law were rather sad. Why not just have Carl Weathers simply replace Howard Rollins? -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on December 23, 2010, 1:44 pm

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
While I understand they had to find a way to write off Edith after Stapleton had enough, surely they could have found a kinder and better solution than death. They could have gotten around it by turning her into an unseen character. While the events at work take place, Edith would be at home. During the scenes where Archie is at home, Edith would be nowhere to be found. Instead, there would be a note from her, saying she had to go to the store or somewhere else. Archie could also get phone calls from her during work. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 23, 2010, 1:43 pm

Family Affair (1966) - TV Shows
UPDATE: "...when Cissy decides to become a "weekend Hippie." !?! I mean, c'mon! Were people really doing that?" Well, I just watched a very interesting documentary on Bio or the History Channel, or something like that, and according to a snippet of info in that documentary there was IN FACT a phenomenon sort of referred to as the "Weekend Hippie." There were people who kind of admired some aspects of the hippie lifestyle and so during the week they wore their suits & ties, then on the weekend, traded those for long haired wigs beads and other forms of standard 'Hippie Attire' and hung loose on the weekends. The things you learn. So I officially stand corrected. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on December 23, 2010, 10:01 am

what boned the fish was ABC wanted Dick Clark to shorted the show from a hour to half hour in '87... but Clark didn't wanted that way so he took to show to synication for a year and a half which it didn't hardly do so well cause of low ratings, music videos that was going on MTV, VH1 & BET at the time... so, Clark took the show to USA network in '89 that he retired as host and it was filmed outside at Universal Studios Hollywood, Clark's Replacement was David Hirsch... the version of the show lasted 6 months with the last episode October 7 1989. -- Submitted By: (justindavis) on December 22, 2010, 12:39 am

Scooby Doo - TV Shows
It's no coincidence that Scrappy rhymes with crappy. I also didn't like when it was just Shaggy and Scooby without the others. Wisely, they brought back the entire gang for the newer additions, although those started bugging me because they played on the character stereotypes from the movies (Fred is arrogant, Daphene an airhead, etc.) and not the original series when Fred was courageous but nice and Daphene not necessarily intelligent, but not an airhead either. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 21, 2010, 6:00 pm

Captain N: The Game Master - TV Shows
This show came out during the prime of Nintendo's popularity. It's one of the reasons I never really got on the whole Saturday morning cartoon bandwagon as a kid. Even as a 6-7 year old, I could tell this was nothing but a cheap 30 minute commercial for Nintendo. Captain N and the Princess were nothing more than Zack and Kelly ripoffs from Saved by the Bell, the characters were poorly designed and had annoying personalities. For example, Simon Belmont in the Castelvania games is a fearless vampire hunter. In the cartoon, he was an annoying chauvinist. Mega Man looked like a fat little man who just said "Mega" in front of every word. By the time Gameboy was introduced, I gave up that any Nintendo-based cartoon was ever going to be of high quality. Day one. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 21, 2010, 5:52 pm

Lost - TV Shows
I know--that cracked me up too. How many gazillion times did the creators publicly announce "No, no matter what, the ending will NOT be that everyone died--IN THE PLANE CRASH". They used that little qualifier as a sidestep around the fact that, of course, come series finale, guess what? EVERYONE WAS DEAD, lol. But they didn't *all* die in the plane crash, they all just died at different, unspecified points in time. The 'flash-sideways' gimmick was cranked out to divert the audience from the fact that the creators wound up the series in *precisely* the manner they said they were absolutely NOT going to do, just by engaging in a bit of slippery wordplay, and a plot device that was fairly lame, to put it mildly. Of course, by series end, they were laughing all the way to the bank, and the LOST culties were filling the bandwidths all attempting to come up with half-arsed rationalizations for the ripoff that had been perpetrated on them. That's showbiz, folks! -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on December 19, 2010, 4:26 pm

Spin City - TV Shows
I have to agree that when Michael J. Fox left, it boned because one could sense that as much spinning the character did, he was, underneath it all, a decent and principled person. Charlie Sheen's character just seemed snotty,glib and could have written his code of ethics on a bee's knee and still have left plenty of room for the World Book Encyclopedia! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2010, 2:38 pm

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
I'd agree, Robert- except that Jean Stapleton herself was sick of doing the character and essentially had had to be dragged in to do it on a fairly occassional basis the last year or so. Since Edith Bunker would have NEVER left Archie, I can't imagine how else they could have had her exit the show besides dying. Still, it would have been better for all concerned had Carroll O'Connor had simply retired the concept when the other three main performers left (and, it's interesting that, after the series[plural] finally gasped its last, he'd have the most success as a performer of the four). All in all, it simply would have been better had they ended 'AITF' when Mike and Gloria amscrayed. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 18, 2010, 2:31 pm

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
Jean Stapleton wanted to leave the show. After a decade of playing Edith, she felt she'd done as much with the character as she possibly could and wanted to go on to other things. The producers didn't have much choice other than to kill her off, since there wasn't much else that could've been done to plausibly explain Edith's absence for that long, short of their divorcing, which the audience would hardly have accepted. Carroll O'Connor, on the other hand, was ready to continue on with the show, and since it was still getting solid ratings, it was felt basically "why not"? In the beginning of the post-Edith era, I thought it still wasn't too bad, but it did JTS for me when they had Archie adopt that kid. That's when everyone concerned with the show should've realized it was time to call it quits. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on December 18, 2010, 8:48 am

I think I waa too old for this when it debuted, but I still thought it wasn't very good.

Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, The - TV Shows
Day One. Love the Mario video games, but the attempts at other media (Film/TV) were epic failures. This show was so bad in so many different ways. The live action segments were completely corn ball and over the top. The introduction with that awful rap number was very 90s and seems quite dated now. The Mario cartoon was poorly written and could have used more action in the storylines. The Zelda cartoon was the worst of all. Link in the video games is a selfless, fearless hero. In the cartoon he was this lazy, rude surf dude who just wanted to get it on with Zelda. I understand the whole thing was just a hokey cartoon for kiddies, but couldn't they have used more quality writing and animation? Super Mario 3 and Super Mario World on NBC weren't any better. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 17, 2010, 5:00 pm

Pokemon - TV Shows
I Love this show. Correction: I LOVED this show. I heard it was originally gonna end after Kanto ended. That would have been wise. Orange Islands were crap with Tracey (no personality). Team Rocket was badass, then kinda funny, now pathetic (ignoring Best Wishes). When Brock returned, it was okay again, but not as good. Then....Misty left. While May was okay, her little brother Max (who served less purpose than Tracey, and was more annoying) was probably the thing that pushed a lot of fans away. It's no wonder Max fell inlove with Tracey when they met >.> Then, after the Hoenn stuff ended, they (ash, May, Misty, Brock, and Max) traveled through Kanto for the Battle Fronteir. My thoughts were "Okay, this looks good. Bringing back Misty..." (Two episodes later) "Oh...she left." Then they had to change Voice actors for no reason (some vauge lie about Contract stuff was their best excuse). While I was kinda releived we wouldn't have to put up with 4Kids and their biggotry against Riceballs, it was the fact that they recast everyone. Ash sounds like he's on drugs, James sounds like he has a headcold, Jessie sounds like she inhaled an endless supply of heilium, and Meowth.....I'm not even going there.... It should have ended this way: After losing the Indigo Leauge (Kanto), Ash Misty and Brock return to Pallet Town. Prof. Oak tells them about Jhoto, and they head there. The last frame is a still of the three of them walking towards the sunset, with Jessie James and Meowth following them (and Ho-Oh flying overhead). But, greed made Diamond and Pearl. Yeah...New VAs + Non serious Team Rocket + Dawn = failure. And it didn't help that they changed the coloring process at the end of Johto (Jessie's hair is now Pink, the backgrounds look like some cheap 4kids original series, etc). -- Submitted By: (LD1808) on December 16, 2010, 5:40 pm

Dawson's Creek - TV Shows
*Major Spoiler Alert* (so not to ruin it for all the DVD late-comers like me) I loved Seasons 1 and 2. Series 3 is definitely when Dawson's Creek jumped the shark. This is when Kevin Williamson (the creator) walked out to pursue making movies. I can't fault him for expanding his career but it's too bad. He had such magic going with the show. I do think the first Bone the Fish sign was having Joey wear a wire to bust her Dad. It was just too awkward, too out of place. It could have been forgiven/forgotten though if season 3 hadn't been such a train wreck. Also I'm really pissed that Dawson and Joey never got to really date. I think they broke up one episode after they got together. Where was the deep romance, the dream come true? Giving Dawson a night with Jenn in season 6 was a small consolation prize 6 years too late. Season 2 was only really saved by Pacey and Andy. More Grievances: It was just evil having Joey pick Pacey." What a load of crap. I didn't see them together. It didn't make sense to me. What about all the build up in season one, the been best friends forever thing. Maybe the writers had done too much damage by then. Maybe all the old fans had left and the new fans wanted Pacey. Who knows? I also heard a rumor that Kevin Williamson came back to help write the finale and at the last minute changed the story to have Joey and Pacey end up together instead of Dawson and Joey. Why destroy a match made in the stars? Another complaint: Why make Andy cheat on that test? In the words of Paul Stupin (the producer) : I'm not sure [Andie's] character EVER recovered. Interesting side note: Many people I meet love the show but have never seen seasons 1 and 2. The real meat of the series and what made is a phenomenon was the tension in the first season building up to the idea of "Will Dawson kiss Joey?." A lot of fans have never seen that. And frankly if you haven't seen seasons 1 and 2, then I'm sorry, you haven't seen Dawson's Creek. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on December 15, 2010, 6:24 pm

Friends - TV Shows
I grew up in the 80's and 90's. I was 11 or 12 when friends came out. At that age I didn't like the show. I though it was just a bunch of not very well written comedy. I'm 27 now and I think I finally "get" the Friends. A bunch of miserable 20 somethings struggling with the same problems that I have: hanging out with people who have vastly different incomes than me, attempting to play the stock market to delay getting a job, people I know dealing with divorce at a young age. Sure the show is a farce, sure they couldn't afford those apartments, sure they would never have that much time to hang out in the coffee shop. Who cares. This IS fantasy land, and was ment to be. Its just good fun. And to the person who thinks that Jennifer Aniston isn't hot, or is only hot because the media tells us so, HOW RIDICULOUS.

Saturday Night Live - TV Shows
It's just not funny anymore. I can't remeber the last timeit was actually funny. There was the original cast in the 70's and then Eddie Murphy kept it alive and then maybe Dana Garvey and Mike Myers which was pretty funny, and then I remember some really stupid movies coming out with SNL cast members like the Superstar Movie or the Stuart movie or whatever it was. The originals were clever and funny but then like the movies it started to become annoyingly stupid rather than funny. It relied too much on fart jokes, gay humor and gross out jokes. I was working a lot on Saturday nights and this coupled with the impression that SNL had started to suck contributed to my lack of interest. Since like many others these day I have lost my job and my Saturdays are free, so I checked it out and the best thing I could say it that somebody does Obama pretty well and it's all down hill from there. There had been a time when SNL was the coolest thing on the air. There was great satire and clever jokes and a freshness about it and now it's just dull and stale drivel with jokes about people slobbering all over each other, poop jokes (I mean jokes where it's supposed to be funny to imply that someone shits in the pool) and it doesn't get any better. The is as good as the guest stars and that it's. The one with McCartney was good but mark my words that Paul was in good form that night be he was theonly thing worth wathcing about this whole mess.

Power Rangers (original) - TV Shows
All righty more ranting! When the rangers were made into kids they were temporarily replaced by aliens with a warped version of the power ranger theme. Eventually Bulk and Skull left the show and thus died the GOOD comedy. The shift to turbo (no pun intended concerning the opening of said series) didn't make sense to american viewers, esp. since both the zords and the enemies are weaker than the zeo counterparts. In summary PR started to bone near the end of season 2. Season 3 was for the most part too silly even though it did have it's moments. Boning got worse with the aliens. Zeo restored much credability however that was destroyed with Turbo. In Space it restored some credability again but was destroyed with Lost Galaxy. After that PR just became worse and worse with each season. Disney got hold of it and somehow made it even worse yet. Saban has rights to it again but it's too late. The previews I've seen just confirm that it's gonna suck. In my next post I'll describe what they should do with PR if they want it to be great again. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on December 11, 2010, 8:51 pm

Power Rangers (original) - TV Shows
Many downers for me concerning this series. Where to begin... Bulk and Skull became cops, that was a major boner there. Bulk and Skull are supposed to be punks, not cops. The only way they would ever be so is if either drafted against their will of tricked into it. Jason, Zack, and Trini were replaced by...I can't remember, because their replacements were simply not memorable enough. The replacements didn't stand out very well and were generic. Also the villains became sillier and sillier. Zedd used to be the coolest villain. He had Serpentera, he destroyed the dinozords with just his Z-staff, he had a creepy theme, he had it all! By the end of season two (or was it 3?) he married Rita and just became a wuss. Similiar happened to Goldar. He was one of the coolest villains and nearly killed Jason at one point. But just like Zedd he became a wuss. All the villains after Zedd just became sillier and sillier. It got to the point of wondering if they were the comedy relief and not Bulk and Skull. The rangers changed too much. It used to be 50+ or so episodes they would be one thing and eventually change. Now it's every 20 to 30 episodes. There was no real way to keep track. Zordon leaves and is eventually killed. His death was supposed to destroy all evil but somehow evil survived thus making his death meaningless. Alpha 5 is replaced with 6 and 6 has such an annoying accent. He is not likeable and you just hate him. Kimberly is replaced sometime in the 3rd season. While her replacement is somewhat memorable she is unfortunately stuck in Kimberly's shadow. Billy loses his powrs for BS reasons and is replaced by a kid for some odd reason. I never understood that. I hated the fact the movie was non-canon. Imagine my shock to find out that the likeable and great batman-esque villain Ivan Ooze is replaced by the stupid Master Vile and that the hot chick is replaced by the retarded hero wannabe Ninjor. Also the story just got more and more stupid. I'll have more to rant about later. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on December 11, 2010, 4:58 pm

They eventually cut the (fish)head off by having dumb episodes such as: 1) Mack having visions of talking with killed team-member Hector Williams (aka Hammerhead) to conjure up memories of the fatal shot to figure out who was the sniper. 2) The untrained wives are ordered to go undercover on a long-term mission to flush out homegrown terrorists. 3) A new YOUNG PUNK member is sent "Super Duper" undercover to fool the seasoned veterans of the unit by faking an attempted rape of a female unit member. -- Submitted By: (Understated) on December 10, 2010, 10:15 pm

Saturday Night Live - TV Shows
I'm inclined to agree that SNL was at its best years ago. I watched SNL back when I was in high school - at first, I watched for Deep Thoughts, but I eventually found myself liking other skits (Bill Swerski's Super Fans, McLaughlin Group and Wayne's World to name a few). I stopped watching some time after Dana Carvey left. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on December 8, 2010, 12:41 pm

I haven't watched it for years. I read that in 2008 SNL dropped the TV Funhouse segments, the only good thing left on that show. I'd love a complete DVD set of all 101 TV Funhouse segments. (There was a "Best of" DVD in 2006) I can't even find such a collection on BitTorrent. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 7, 2010, 1:38 am

Jetsons, The - TV Shows
I was introduced to the show during the '80s version, which also cycled in the '60s eps as well. I couldn't tell the difference back then and I think they actually did a faithful job. That is, until 1990 when they released The Movie. This was to be the last time the original cast would be assembled (George O'Hanlon and Mel Blanc died during production), but then some idiot exec insisted they throw out the recordings Janet Waldo made for Judy Jetson and hire fading pop star Tiffany to replace her in order to make the movie "hip". The plan failed. The movie flopped and was hated by critics. The franchise has been dead for 20 years now until the inevitable live-action remake comes around. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 6, 2010, 3:46 pm

Dallas - TV Shows
Not to repeat myself but I remember watching the show more in reruns than whne it was an actual series. I always thought that the weekly series moved to slow and spent too much time on Sue Ellen whining about JR and not enough time on JR at the office. The business stuff was interesting but the soap opera crap was just pathetic. I started to wathc the show in syndication daily which meant the stories moved a little faster but still seemd sluggish. I noticed it took about 5 episodes to resolve any storyline no matter how pitiful it was. Then I bought the dvds online for less than 10.00 a piece in 2009 and watched and still found myself having to fast forward through Sue Ellen at the shrink's office and various other nonsense. The first real BTF moment though was when Ray Krebbs pulls the plug on his nephew Mickey Trotter in season 7. This seemed totally out of character for Ray, always the hero until that moment. Then to add insult to injury Ray is aquitted in what had to another BTF moment, Mickey (a likeable good humored character) is completey forgotten by everyone including Lucy after a tantrum is thrown at Ray and at Sue Ellen. After this, I thought the Ray Krebbs character was never the same. From then on I can't count the number of BTF moments on this show. Surely Dallas must deserve an award for most ridiculous storylines. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on December 2, 2010, 12:31 am

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
The only character on the Sopranos that I truly hated was Ralph Ciffaretto. I couldn't wait for Tony to whack this big mouth overbearing ass. I couldn't beleive that he didn't get it for beating up the stripper outside the club. From the beginning this guy was just an annoyance, always high as a kite and disrespectful to everyone - Georgio, Tracy the stripper, lousy jokes in the hospital when the guy gets hit with a golf club and then the remark about Ginny Sacks (RIP Denise Borino) the attitude towards Paulie, the romance with Janice and Rosalie Aprile at the same time, and then the topper of all was the race horse being torched. Finally Tony does what he should've done long ago. The other contibuting factor was the horse's owner or whatever detailing Ralph's rather bizarre masochistic seual practices. Talk about a character that just was just asking to be whacked. I actually was hoping Johnny Sacks might whack Ralph just to shut him up. On the upside, Janice seems to grow a brain and dumps Ralphie. Rosalie and Meadow could do better. On the downside, there's suddenly too much bs about Jan and Bobby as well as too much bs about AJ and Meadow. The way Karen was suddenly killed (we hardly knew ye) and the way Janice moves in felt contrived to me. The breakup between Tony and Carmela felt a little contrived also. She knew he was a mobster when they met and married so why the sudden surprise about him being unfaithful. I always wanted Dr Melfi to take advantage of her association with Tony Soprano and have the rapist "squashed like a cockroach". It's obvious that there is an attraction between these two and it would've cemented their bond all that much more. Jan's born again period seems contrived (such a good word) I could also live without the story about Noah and Meadow and Caitlin, the section eight roommate. Overall, I always enjoyed this show but nothing is so good it couldn't stand some improvement. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on November 30, 2010, 10:20 pm

My Name is Earl - TV Shows
I liked this show at first because it didn't seem like a clone of other shows. It was sort of like one of those old shows from the 60's about some wacky characters in the south - you know not too bright but they mean well - and I liked the jokes about heavy metal bands - but the thrill soon wears thin. I could live without fart jokes and I hate to say it but most of the characters on this show are just plain dumb. Jason Lee was cool in "Almost Famous" but his character here is annoying as he and his brother and Joy are all such dimwits. The "Prison" epsiode and the one where I think it was Norma Crosby played "Crabman's" boss or something. Some of the episodes are actually kind of hard to follow and there are times when I wish the Earl would just go get a job. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on March 1, 2011, 8:33 pm

G.I. Joe: Renegades - TV Shows
I think one of the reasons cartoon designs look worse today than in the past is because it uses digital ink and paint as opposed to traditional ink and paint. Don't get me wrong, I've seen digital ink and paint done good, but for many who work in the cartoon business, it's looks like it's being used as a license to be lazy and not put effort in. Alas, there are a lot of people who don't know how to draw nowadays. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 30, 2010, 1:03 pm

From wiki: "They are three talking bears who spew conformist propaganda in the form of song and dance (Oh, we're the Buddy Bears we always get along, if you ever disagree, it means that you are wrong,: etc.) The Buddy Bears are a satire of The Get Along Gang and other '80s cartoons that placed the importance of group harmony over individualism.

That '80s Show - TV Shows
Stephanie, I'm sorry to say I've gotta disagree with you this time. 80s nostalgia kicked in right when the 2000s started. Was it right to suddenly hear almost every song from '89 again everywhere just 11 years later? NO!!! But right or wrong it was rampant, and for a show centered around 80s nostalgia to flop as badly as this one did at a time like that is nothing short of astounding. IMO it's actually way past time for 90s nostalgia to start kicking in, but since the Baby Boomers weren't young in the 90s and most 90s media would remind us all just how lame and corporate-controlled the entertainment industry has really become today I'm guessing the Powers That Be will hold off as long as possible and maybe even skip it altogether. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on November 28, 2010, 11:33 pm
