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.

The thing that bothers me most about the show is that you hear a lot of songs that weren't recorded until much later, sometimes a few years later. They are just too numerous to put here. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on July 7, 2010, 12:00 am

Olympics, The - TV Shows
I think there have been increasing degrees of boning over the last few decades. I first noticed it during the 1984 summer games when absolutely all they raved about was the American athletes. Then 'Up Close and Personal' stories began to encroach on actual sports time, and we got no end of tedious sob sagas about some skater's blind grandmother, etc., etc. I don't remember when the inevitable close-ups of (almost always American) athletes faces during the national anthems began, in the hope that we'd see a tear trickling down a cheek, but that was another stroke of the knife. The latest, for me, has been the introduction of snow boarding. Yes, I know, it takes skill, blah blah blah, but sruffy skateboarder types jumping out of sewer pipes and doing flips is a stunt, not a real sport. Could it be a ploy to draw in the millions of teenage snowboarders as a new audience? Nah. -- Submitted By: (Scaramouche) on July 6, 2010, 5:58 pm

Are You Being Served? - TV Shows
Pelirojo- I agree completely. My father spent many years as a manager in a mid-scale department store not too unlike the one depicted in AYBS, and having grown up in that kind of environment, the earlier seasons/series were spot on and very amusing. Sadly, the show became just over-the-top stupid and was rather unwatchable after a point. Then came that failed bit with the AYBS gang inheriting an English Bed & Breakfast (in lieu of ther pensions) and trying to make a go with that. No thanks. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 6, 2010, 3:05 pm

Let's Make A Deal (2009) - TV Shows
It's a much better revival than the 2003 NBC edition (gag me), but it still has some problems. Like Bob with The Price is Right, Dick Clark with Pyramid and Allen Ludden with Password, Monty Hall IS Let's Make a Deal. You can't watch and not compare the two. I think Drew Carey's doing a fine job on TPIR, but he's not Bob and he never will be. Same with Wayne Brady. He's doing a fine job on this show, but he's not Monty Hall. He doesn't have the same salesmanship skills, the same knack for pressuring the contestants, or the same "trust me" with a sly wink demeanor that Monty had. Not only that, but he makes himself the star of the show, not the contestants. The era of game show hosts who had careers as game show hosts is long gone and instead we have stand-up comedians or talk show hosts doing it and they don't have the same punch that dedicated game show hosts do. The show is long at an hour. TPIR pulls it off with variety, LMOD just doesn't have that variety, plus it's too slow. What really bugs me too is that the show is an hour long, yet only one contestant plays for the big deal of the day. It has always been two contestants and with many contestants in the hour edition, how come they can't just go back to two? Are they that afraid of giving stuff away? It's probably my biggest annoyance with this version. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 6, 2010, 2:56 pm

At the Movies - TV Shows
The death of Gene Siskel. This program was always at its best when it was the two competing Chicago writers, one for a liberal-leaning paper, the other for a conservative-leaning paper, reviewing films. They both were passionate about movies and had great chemistry together, even (and maybe especially) when they disagreed. Richard Roeper was a good replacement, but he never had the chemistry with Ebert that Siskel did. When the program overhauled the formula completely with the two Bens, it was on its last legs. It was hard to take Ben Lyons, a pretty boy from E Network who got a job thanks to his dad, seriously as a critic, and his chemistry with the other Ben was pretty wooden. Thank God it only lasted one season in this format, but the show was officially cancelled even though the new hosts have been doing a more than acceptable job with the program. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 5, 2010, 11:47 pm

That's Incredible - TV Shows
I used to watch this show as a kid. There were some real scary and bizarre stories, including one where this lady was married to a corpse named Speedy and this couple even appeared in the audience. They often had shows dedicated to incredible kids, and I can't remember for the life of me the name of this kid who was a walking encyclopedia of baseball and touted as a future star. Did this kid ever make it to the majors? Similarly, there was also this hockey playing kid who was supposed to give Gretzky a run for his money. Did he even make it to the NHL? -- Submitted By: (JayD) on July 5, 2010, 6:42 pm

Jetsons, The - TV Shows
It is a long time since I seen a episode of Jetsons since I was a kid in the early 90s but I remember that both versions I enjoyed through there were problems with both versions. The 60s version was a clone of Hanna-Barbarea's own Flintstones in terms of plot devices/themes (working class family living in a time period far away from ours). The 80s version I thought had better animation and was better to look at than the grainy and pastel ridden 60s version but some plot devices were abit too corny and odd (remember the talking lip diary of Judy's that she whined to). Possibly the boner was the 90s movie that came out. I remember the 90s movie version was OK but it was quickly forgotten like most TV show turned into a movies movie. Then Hanna-Barbarea haven't done anything new with the series since because it is not as popular in making the mightly dollar unlike the Flintstones or Scooby Doo. -- Submitted By: (Ani) on July 5, 2010, 4:01 am

Let's Make a Deal - TV Shows
A somewhat lame and annoying show even considering the genre. However; it occassionally had its moments- like how one time they 'jokingly' gave away a baby elephant as the booby prize- but the contestant actually WANTED it and they'd already told her she'd 'won' it so their lawyers told them they HAD to let the contestant have said elephant which wound up costing them some $30,000 LOL!

Robert, the 80's version wouldn't be able to hold an candle on an *IPOD screen* to anything much less the 60's version.

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
There were just too many characters for a recurring weekly sitcom. You started out with the family unit which was fine, then came Sondra and Elven, Denise and her Navy beau, then the grandparents would show up for pinochle or whatever...and they jettisoned in kids every few months for the cute factor. In the end, not a lot of chemistry was built up because of the revolving door of kids and celebrities (OMG I ran into Stevie Wonder's limo!!!111!). Theo and Cockroach had great chemistry and so did Cliff and Claire. It didn't help that Cliff went from a laid-back worker with a good position to having his veins bulge out and referring to Hillman and so on every chance. It definitely had its funny episodes but it got too preachy and too populated before long. -- Submitted By: (CrazyPierre) on July 3, 2010, 7:17 am

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
Just finished watching season 6 with Mrs. Chubby Rain, and wow did I forget how BAD this got- the last few episodes are painful to watch, it becomes the AJ and Meadow rail on the writers politicals issues (GWB, the US is evil etc.) for 15-20 minutes while the interesting characters (Phil Leotardo/ NY Crew- Soprano gangsters) are reduced to 3 minute vignettes between political/social rants. It's just awful- even the NY/NJ war is a joke- dumb deaths like Silvio are done just for shock, and the wasted death of Chris Moltisanti is just terrible. The finale upon the second viewing ws even worse, the other dropped story lines- Carlo is with the feds?! announced in the last five minuets and the wasted character arc of Uncle Junior just make this even worse, and it is amazing that the show is the same one that mesmerized everyone a few seasons earlier. Truly a bad ending to a great series. Boned in season 6- pass the slaw for the Soprano family... -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on July 1, 2010, 7:40 pm

Bewitched - TV Shows
I understand that IRL, things happen- and where TV productions are concerned, that can create a little havoc for the story line. But when a TV show decides to go the route of doing a 'same character different actor' switcheroo on a popular TV show, a production company should, as a service to the fans, at least make some effort to find the best replacement possible. I know from experience that there are TONS of really good actors in Hollywood looking for a break. You can't tell me that (even in the 1960's) out of those likely vast numbers they could not find one or two actors who bore at least a passing resemblance to the first 'Darrin Stevens' and could even mimic him in a convincing way? And if they couldn't find him in a 'cattle call' in LA, they even try New York. Lot's of actors there too. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 30, 2010, 4:35 pm

The original Press Your Luck, although the board was recalibrated with new patterns after Michael Larson's big win (I saw it originally when I was a few weeks away from my 8th birthday), didn't seem to bone.

Was never my favorite game show, but it was entertainment to say the least. The early episodes I felt were much stronger than the later ones.

South Park - TV Shows
South Park is still likable and better than most other shows, but I long for the early days. Yes, the humor back then was much more simple and sophomoric, but that was the beauty of it. We spend enough time worrying and poring over the more serious and pressing issues in life that sometimes it's nice to take a break, turn our minds off, and escape into something completely irrelevant. Seasons 1-4 were pure gold, 5-7 were ok, and then 8-10 were pretty unwatchable. In seasons 8-10 the show took on a dark, depressing and uncomfortable feel, but from seasons 11-present, that's evened out a bit and the show is once again very enjoyable. It's basically two different series, with the only constant factor being the title and character names. -- Submitted By: (MarkBagge) on June 27, 2010, 7:20 pm

Seth MacFarlane is a despicable coward. If Obama had a son with Down Syndrome, there is not a chance in the world that Family Guy ever would have mocked him for it. Even more revolting than MacFarlane slamming Sarah Palin for having a disabled son was the way in which he did it. He basically used an actress with down syndrome to supply the voice because he felt that would keep it safe, then goes on to put words in her mouth, namely "I wasn't making fun of Trig, I was making fun of Sarah Palin"... for what? Having a kid with down syndrome! Seth MacFarlane is a cancer on our society and needs to be taken down a peg. -- Submitted By: (MarkBagge) on June 27, 2010, 7:07 pm

I've Got a Secret - TV Shows
Had its moments- especially in the early years. Most notably, when Lucille Ball guested on the panel,they had a 95-year-old man named Sam Seymour as a contestant whose secret was that, as a 5-year-old, he'd actually witness President Lincoln's Assasination at Ford's Theatre! Yep, someone who'd been around during the US Civil War (AKA War Between the States), actually lived to the television age (and this would make Lucy one of the most worthy Degree of all time re Six Degrees of Separation) and he told an interesting tale about how he was more startled as a 5-year-old seeing John Wilkes Booth jump on the stage from the box seat! Of course, this show was often just a vehicle for start to promo their latest project even during its heyday.

However, storylines like Gay Vito are launched as well as things that are never picked up again like the Dead? Russian in the forest. Also too much Janice Soprano (should have left after season 2) and too much AJ and meadow- they kill the show and send it screeching to a halt whenever they are on screen. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on June 27, 2010, 7:48 am

Headbangers Ball has always been a great source to watch heavy metal music videos for whatever generation was watching.

Now it's on at Tuesday at like, 1 in the morning, and that's inexcusable. I know MTV hates anything that associates themselves with "music", but can't they let us metalheads have our metal at a decent hour on a decent day?

Of all the settings they could have, why school? School is one of the most boring settings when it comes to shows or movies. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 23, 2010, 6:20 pm

Critic, The - TV Shows
Still rocks today, and some of the jokes still hold up. I still get a laugh out of the Escape From the Big Apple video game from the first episode. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 23, 2010, 4:32 pm

Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
Never boned, not by a long shot. Granted, the fourth season wasn't as great without John Cleese, but they managed to make do all the same. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 23, 2010, 4:23 pm

Pup Named Sccoby-Doo, A - TV Shows
Sucked because Fred was an irrational bigmouth, Daphne was a vain snob, and Velma said "Jenkies" way too often. End of each episode...Fred accuses Red Herring even when there is NO EVIDENCE that he was involved. Yawn. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 22, 2010, 11:26 pm

Pac-Man - TV Shows
Travoltron, that is messed up! At least HB was smart enough to know the four (plus Sue) ghosts were his enemies, even though they got the personalities wrong. But yeah, a HIGH SCHOOLER? Like we don't have enough shows about high school giving a generation of pre-teens a false view of their future? I guess it's officially time to lose hope for the entertainment business. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on June 22, 2010, 5:10 pm

George Lopez - TV Shows
Day one. Formulaic and dull. George Lopez is just another modern day comedian full of snarky remarks that annoy the heck out of me. Not only that, but I agree with Stephanie. It's people like Lopez etc. that make our country seem a lot more racist than it is. If you don't let go, nothing ever changes. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 22, 2010, 4:50 pm

Forgive or Forget - TV Shows
I remember Forgive or Forget - it was a lot better when Mother Love was the host. Robin Givens couldn't hold a candle to Mother Love, not by a long shot. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 22, 2010, 2:23 pm

Lamb Chop's Play-Along - TV Shows
She wrote the TOS episode "The Lights of Zetar" with her husband. She wanted to play the female guest star in the episode, too. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 22, 2010, 1:21 pm

Pac-Man - TV Shows
I think I may have to change my vote to "Never Boned". Avi Arad is planning on making a new Pac-Man cartoon and it sounds terrible. Pac-Man will now be a hip high-school dude and the four ghosts will be his _friends_. http://tv.ign.com/articles/109/1099961p1.html -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 22, 2010, 1:19 pm

George Lopez - TV Shows
This has got to be one of the most racist shows! Everytime they show a white person, they portray them as shallow and stupid. Then there's George's abusive sorry-ass excuse for a mother. The episode where he redecorated her bathroom for her and she didn't say "thank you" then she starts whining about her "hard" life and how she got pregnant at 15, was on her own, had to work hard as a single mom, blah blah blah... ad nauseum just made me want to throw up. As if Mexicans are the only people that have had it hard. Give me a break. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on June 22, 2010, 9:07 am

Land of the Lost - TV Shows
Remakes are almost always doomed to bone from the get-go, and this was no exception. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 21, 2010, 11:17 am

Land of the Lost - TV Shows
The original 1970s version boned when Spencer Milligan (Rick Marshall) left - the third season was nowhere near as good as the previous two seasons (though I admit Timestop was a good episode). The 1990s remake boned from the get-go. I mean, living in a tree house? They might as well slather BBQ sauce all over themselves and scream "Eat me" at Scarface (the name of the T-rex in the 1990s remake). -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 20, 2010, 9:21 pm

Ren and Stimpy - TV Shows
This show was truly awesome, but I think it boned when John K left. :( -- Submitted By: (MorbidDuck) on June 20, 2010, 7:35 am

Doctor Who - TV Shows
Perhaps the biggest boning moment had to be when Russell T Davies turned it from a solid sci fi drama to a platform for touting interspecies romances and gay rights. -- Submitted By: (doctorwhorox) on June 20, 2010, 2:45 am

Dora the Explorer - TV Shows
Dora The Explorer doesn't work at all. It says it teaches Spanish but it mostly hammers the same annoying songs into your head repeatedly and tried to hard to be interactive by making every simple task worth asking the audience to say where something is, while Dora waits for way too long. I could learn more in Spanish from a day of Grade 1 Spanish class than I could from a full season of this show. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 2:08 am

MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge) - TV Shows
It's mindless entertainment, and I expected nothing more! It's amazing to think that half of the voice actors (Christopher Darga and John Cervenka) were party responsible for the abysmal garbage that was Burt Luddin's Love Buffet on GSN, cause they totally redeemed themselves on MXC! Sure, fans of Takeshi's Castle will probably be dumbfounded by what was done to the original show, but it's for a different audience, and luckily, it was well recieved enough for a four year run. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:53 am

Family Feud - TV Shows
If you'd asked me when Family Fued boned in the early 2000s, I'd have said when Louie Anderson became the host, no questions asked. His voice was grating, he never really seemed like he wanted to be there, and he was never particularly funny or witty, despite his funny stand-up material. But when Family Fued dropped Louie for Richard Karn, things improved and improved fast. Richard Karn definitely had no game show experience, but he was warm, friendly, and visibly enjoyed hosting the show. Plus, the set got better and the double point round returned, both I welcomed! So it's definitely jumped back, John O'Hurley also proved to be a great host, though the jury's out on Steve Harvey until we see him in action. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:48 am

Match Game - TV Shows
Match Game was always an entertaining show in it's classic daytime/syndicated runs of the 70s and early 80s. However, when they had the bright idea to morph Match Game and Hollywood Squares into The Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour, it would never recover. It wasn't even Match Game's fault, the Jon Bauman-hosted joke answer-less Hollywood Squares sunk it, but even if it was as good as the Peter Marshall era, the show would still have left me scratching my head over why they were merged together. Nothing's saved it since either, Match Game 90 was too bland and had a horrible timeslot, and Match Game 98...the less I say, the better. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:42 am

American Idol - TV Shows
The auditions are the best part because we get the trainwreck horrible singers and we get the good singers before they get a television/record label polish. The best judges of talent to me are how they sing as themselves in the audition stage, when it's just them alone singing what they know and want. I'd love to see a singing talent show where the contestants can pick their own songs for the WHOLE run of the show, or sing their own original material if they choose, without outside influence. I'd also love to see more heavy metal singers actually advance, cause I bet some very talented ones have auditioned before, but knowing the commercial appeal of this show, I can't see it ever happening. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:36 am

Hell's Kitchen (U.S.) - TV Shows
The anti-climactic cliffhangers don't bother me, they're just a way to try and get fans to tune in next week, and even if we know it likely won't lead somewhere, it must work on some people. That being said, I like Hell's Kitchen, I like how Gordon Ramsay has total control to run the kitchen and to judge and eliminate contestants. The show presents everything well, and we really get to know the contestants. And of course, seeing Gordon yell and get angry is always fun. It may not be the best method of finding a great new chef, but I'd take this over Top Chef any day, it's just an entertaining summer show! -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:29 am

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - TV Shows
WWTBAM was perfectly fine the way it was until producers started tinkering with the syndicated format. Stuff like dumping the classic lifelines, adding a time limit to a show that didn't need to be sped up, overcomplicating the show with unneeded graphics and additions, and of course, the completely dispensable "Tournament of Ten", which to me sounded like a desperation move to force a millionaire cause they hadn't had one in 6 years. WWTBAM was at it's best when Regis hosted the ABC version, and if it wasn't for airing it too much and all the celebrity episodes, it would have lasted a LOT longer. It was simple, fun, suspenseful, and engaging. A lot of that appeal has dried up in the last few years thanks to the changes that have been made. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:23 am

Real TV - TV Shows
Real TV boned when Ahmad Rashad replaced John Daly. Ahmad's a nice enough guy, I found him underrated as the host of Caesar's Challenge, and he's great as a sports host, but he definitely didn't fit on Real TV. He seemed somewhat wooden, where John Daly was a well-versed perfect host for the material. I didn't mind Kristin Eykel either as a co-host, though she was dispensible. Real TV went from generally amazing and interesting home video to mostly extreme sport mishaps after Ahmad took over too, it's like they wanted to appeal to a younger audience and not try as hard at the same time. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:16 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
Family Guy gives me mixed feelings. I find the show hilarious, but the structure and characters make me dislike it at the same time. Since the third season, things seem to have gotten worse. The stories went from actually trying (with some cutaway gags) to an over reliance on cutaway gags and unneeded character development that made most of the main characters less likeable, ESPECIALLY Stewie, whose world-domination matricidal bent is sorely missed. The stories are worse too. I still find the show very funny, but only if you strip the cutaway gags from the story itself. Without them, it feels empty and not as fun as it was in the first two seasons. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:07 am

Jeopardy! - TV Shows
Jeopardy has never jumped or boned, it's as entertaining as it's ever been. I have nitpicks, like the unnecessary Clue Crew, the set not turning red in Double Jeopardy like in the 1990s, and the old "board-turns-on" music being replaced, but those are all minor. Jeopardy is classic, they know not to screw with what works, and it's worked for 26 years and counting! If it ain't broke, don't fix it! -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 12:42 am

Hills, The - TV Shows
Scripted or not, I have no interest in these preppy high class 20-somethings with no noticeable talent, unless being a "reality TV star" is talent in the new millennium. Reality shows are best when the people/family being followed have an interesting back story, profession, or situation to be wrapped in, and there's not enough of those. I'd bring up the fact that this airs on "Music Television" and isn't a music program, but MTV buried that long ago. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 12:33 am

At the Movies - TV Shows
Siskel and Ebert were a great team, they played off each other well, they genuinely loved films to the point that they'd fight over them to defend their ratings. They made "thumbs up/down" a household term. After Gene died, it was never the same. Richard Roeper grew on me, but he's no Gene Siskel. The set got worse too. It was never quite as good during the "Ebert & Roeper" years, though I still watched.Ebert losing his voice, the celebrity guest hosts, and the two Bens sunk it further. It's jumping back with Scott & Phillips, but not enough to save the show. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 19, 2010, 5:50 pm
