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.

Weakest Link, The - TV Shows
True, but, especially in some of the later rounds, it could actually be good strategy. Think of it. If you were in the final round in that head to head for the money, do you want to be facing someone much smarter than you, or someone you think is not as bright? Sometimes, yeah, it was incredibly stupid when a strong link would get voted off, but that's just how the game would work sometimes. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on April 25, 2010, 11:44 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
Family Guy started out as a fairly transparent Simpsons clone, attempting to strike a balance between plot, character development and gags. The show's only real new feature was the random anecdotal cutaways, which was funny when used moderately. Even when a cutaway wasn't funny, they were infrequent enough to where you could still follow the plot, which followed the traditional Simpsons domestic family arc. In short, it was pretty good and pretty funny. I bought the DVDs. Something in the process of finding a cult following on Adult Swim and getting picked back up by FOX solely based on DVD sales (which was, admittedly, unheard of at the time) caused Seth McFarlane to become the world's biggest douchebag. When FOX brought the show back, it was a staggeringly poor parody of itself. It was like Seth McFarlane sat down and decided to reboot the entire series and rewrite every single character and plotline as a John Waters experiment in transgressive theater, like a gruesome, mean-spirited caricature of itself. All actual plot development was replaced with long sequences of random cutaways, which rapidly became both incredibly unfunny and extremely disorienting. All organic humor was replaced with a fratboy-friendly blend of bloody slapstick and wildly transgressive sexual/scatological cries for attention. In a nutshell, Family Guy has become like a mentally retarded clown exposing himself to a crowd and getting a combination of nervous, pitying laughter and stunned silence in response. Eventually people will stop caring and being shocked and the clown will go away and die somewhere and nobody will remember his name. -- Submitted By: (paladin9) on April 23, 2010, 9:25 pm

South Park - TV Shows
I've never been a fan of South Park, but even I have to give the show credit for sticking to its guns in spite of radical Islamo-fanatics and lawyer-brandishing $cientologists. They're edgy and willing to pick on anyone and anything, which is what The Simpsons was in its B.B. (Before Boning) days.

Law and Order - TV Shows
I never seen the early episodes of Law and Order but it was shocking when I saw one of the decetives shove a guy against the wall. Latest Law and Order episodes never did that. What makes later seasons of Law and Order fish food was its over-repeating plot sequence. From beginning of a epiosde. 1. There are some people in NYC yanking it up, having fun, or on ordinary business. They noticed something strange which is a dead body. 2. The police invegistate the scence. They don't find any evidence linking them to the murderer but they find out who is the victim quickly from ID or witnesses. 3. Police go to grieve-stricken family who cry and moan and have no idea who the murder. They go to the friends and acquietances of the victim. Usually a family member, friend, or acquietance is the murder. 4. Police go on wild goose chase and usally get the wrong killer. They find evidence and are shocked to find out that a previous witness is the killer. 5. 30 mins into episode-Killer is arrested and we have court for 30 mins. 6. Killer haves sly, pompous, and jerk lawyer who thinks they are hot stuff. Killer's lawyer uses a motion that the equally jerky judge approves of. Good lawyers are stressed. 7. Something comes up that is controversial or raises moral questions about U.S society/law. Good lawyers are stressed more and jab about in their offices/bar about its effect to US future. 8. Trail starts and a twist comes up where either new evidence comes up to make the killer guilty, bad witnesses on stand. Or good lawyers go to a bad turn when their case is going so well. We will call it a twist 9. Prosectuor makes dramatic speech about why the killer should be guilty in the closing arguments. 10. Guilty or not guilty then. Killer is free or not. Good lawyers talk about the consequences of the case in general or there is a twist in the end for the killer, depending if the writers want one. Repeatable 200 something episodes more. Raise and repeat. -- Submitted By: (Ani) on April 22, 2010, 9:15 pm

All Creatures Great and Small - TV Shows
Thanks for commenting on this one,Nyssa and Mythigator. It's one of my fave Brit shows of all time!I used to look forward to watching this every Sunday morning when it came on my local PBS station with its great mixture of drama, humor and just the dynamics between the leads themselves, the patient animals they treated (and the patients' owners they had to deal with re paying the bills,etc.) There's so much to like and be intrigued with this, it's hard to know where to start. I liked how they did a great deal of location filming all over the Dales including in REAL stone barns in miserable, rainy days where foggy breath was the norm- just as many vets have had to put up with . James was a good nebbishy straight man here who could be easily intimidated by animal's owners, his fiancee/wife Helen and his co-workers when they'd try to put stuff over on him. However; he'd become a virtual unstoppable superhero if there was a possibility of one of his animal patients' needlessly suffering with no one and nothing would get him to back down! It's a good thing he cared for and liked animals so much because he had no escape from them- even when he lived in Skeldale House with his vet partners the Farnon Brothers(the sons of an unseen mother who was a Wagner fan), the bombastic elder brother Siegfried always had large numbers of big dogs following him. Tristan was more of a laidback goof who was often trying to scam James to do more of his work but he often provided the necessary comic relief when the drama got too serious. Totally devoted to the group and not the least bit daunted by all these men and dogs was their sturdy housekeeper Mrs. Hall whom even Siegfried deferred to. Of course, James had more in his life than dogs and Farnons when, to his unexpected delight, this gorgeous, sweet local girl named Helen actually took an interest in him and was even willing to marry him despite their having to live in a house with all these other men and dogs! Helen, it turned out also had his passion for making things right with the animals in their corner of the world. James and the Farnon Brothers treated a wide range of animals everything from plowhorses,calving cows to pampered pooches and cats. Of course, while the world may have seemed timeless to their patients, it wasn't for the humans who were struggling with the Great Depression and then the start of World War II and soon the War would scatter the Herriots and Farnons to the wind and the show would end for the time being. Three years later, they revived the show in a postwar setting back in the Dales but it wasn't nearly as fun or interesting (Callum did his best but he was no Tristan). What seemed to be the most abrupt substitution was the replacement of the stunning and kindly Carol Drinkwater who'd played Helen with the decidedly more matronly and less sympathetic Lynda Bellingham. Think of it had Suzanne Pleshette left "Bob Newhart" and they brought in Rose Marie to play Emily Hartley! James just didn't seem to think of himself as lucky-he-got-her with Lynda as he did with Carol. Also, their kids seemed a bit cardboard. Still, even the latter years are worth watching if one has the chance! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 22, 2010, 10:10 am

Law and Order - TV Shows
Law & Order makes a sudden vertical movement over an aquatic lifeform with nearly every cast change, but they're all miniature blips in comparision to the obvious answer: The retirement of detective Lennie Briscoe. No challenge there. The replacement might have worked well if he had come before Lennie, but once the chronology is factored in, he comes across as a weak attempt at "same character, different actor". Law & Order has always been slightly preachy, but only an entrenched Internet Conservative would think it preaches to the left - typically, if it is to be found guilty of preaching anything, it's either morality (which one might argue the left has a more nuanced perspective of, but that's like saying Sesame Street preaches to Derek Jeter when an episode is brought to you by the number 2) or towards a "middle-of-the-road" majority (which typically dominates in the SVU spinoff). It's hardly as bad or as outlandish as the really preachy stuff coming from Faux News or the Di$ney Channel. Boo hoo hoo. I'm an Internet Conservative and whenever my Neanderthal views are challenged, I decry it as preachiness. -- Submitted By: (ZaPen) on April 21, 2010, 5:02 pm

Anyone else remember (or have seen replayed) the famous Tomahawk Incident? Johnny threw a tomahawk at the painted outline of an opponent- and it landed at a VERY vulnerable spot! What was REALLY hilarious about this is that the audience could see that there were a zillion wisecracks going through Johnny's head at that moment but he could say NONE of them on the air [back then] and they were struggling to try to keep this clever but tasteful as possible. Ah, can anyone imagine TV going to that kind of effort nowadays? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 20, 2010, 9:50 am

Power Rangers (original) - TV Shows
I think Lord Zee or whatever his name was really took the show down a notch. Saban know that they had a huge hit on their hands but they ran out of stock footage from the Japanese show it was based off of. So they had to replace the mechas and film their own fights scences in the US. They tired but most fans enjoy the changes or they were starting to get bored with the series. The World Peace Summit was possibly the last nail in the coffin. Know something was wrong when I was little when they started to show stock footage of the three from previous episodes. They thought in the three new people into the mix and they were bland and uninteresting since the writers didn't care to develop them right straight away to hook viewers expect for Kat who was a brainwashed servant and who suffered from the fear of heights due to a diving accident. But Saban knew they had a stinker and tired to bring back Rita as a wife to Lord Zee to draw back viewers. Stop watching the show for awhile till the new yearly segments with new plot and cast members. Saban should have done that from the beginnning -- Submitted By: (Ani) on April 19, 2010, 4:09 am

Sailor Moon - TV Shows
Rini wasn't a really bad character in my opinion. She was great as a side character and sort of drove the mystery as to who she was. I liked her as a villian also when she was brainwashed into serving for the Black Moon group. Totally awesome. When the show started to go downhill was when DiC lose the English rights to Cloveway. I think the DeadBusters arc (or the Heart Snatchers arc as I like to call it)was the greatest arc next to the Black Moon with dark and grainly story, the Scouts fighting among themselves and life/death decisions if they could save Haruha when through her sexy, alterative demon personality could destroy the whole world. Pegawsus and Dead Cirsus were the point of no return. With excellenting DeadBusters Pegasus arc was boring by comparsion and Dead Cirus I didn't watch. When I did watch it, it was weird and stupid. Then Sailor Stars did to the point where men transformed into women which sounds like a neat plot device but no American programmer of kiddy shows is going to show that due to the "don't ask, don't tell" of anything homosexual on kiddie shows. Sailor Moon is worth the time but acquiring the English rights to the show is so murky that I don't see the show anytime soon. -- Submitted By: (Ani) on April 18, 2010, 3:55 pm

Yeah I think when Tom was added too.

Some of the early Tom episodes were funny (like where Daria trys to dye Jane's hair and she screws it up) but Tom was more of a moody, whining jerk than to Daria.

Charlie Brown specials are classics. It's hard to say which one is my favorite, but it's easy to say which one is my least favorite: "It's the Pied Piper, Charlie Brown!" In it, Snoopy has a cell phone. Yes, you heard right: a CELL PHONE. When the story of the Pied Piper is told, not only do you SEE adults, but they TALK. Not the classic "Wah-wah-wah" way, but real, honest-to-goodness talking. (I've been told that seeing and hearing adults on a Peanuts cartoon has been done before, but that's besides the point). And even with those complaints, believe me when I warn you that I haven't even begun to scratch the surface. This show was released after Charles Schultz died. He was around to supervise it, but they probably brow-beated him into doing it. It was a disgrace to the classic Peanuts cartoons. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 17, 2010, 11:12 am

Why would these men all like this fat manipulative Pig? Why would Tony stand for it?

American Chopper - TV Shows
I don't even watch the show, but it BTF for me when I started seeing ads for it that highlighted the fact the father and son were suddenly no longer on speaking terms. Or was that just more staged "reality TV" drama? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 14, 2010, 10:11 pm

SpongeBob SquarePants - TV Shows
I want to make a comment about the merchandising reason/comments...RIGHT ON. Currently, at Burger King, there is YET ANOTHER Spongebob-based toyline. At the grocery store he's on all sorts of products, even a box of Cream of Wheat. Seriously, Cream of Wheat? He's now less a cartoon character and more a merchandising icon. What happened? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 13, 2010, 2:27 pm

Leave It To Beaver - TV Shows
I loved the show dearly. As he grew older, the cute "innocence" of Beaver was replaced by a growing boy who knew right from wrong but continued to get in trouble. Example..letting Gilbert Bates talk him into making a face while having their class picture taken. Gilbert proposed that they would both do it jointly knowing good and gosh darned well that he himself had no intention of participating in such a stunt. After the photo is taken Gilbert stands there with a silly looking grin on his face, prompting Beaver to ask what was so funny. Gilbert's reply? "You'll see.." along with what suddenly turned into a now evil looking grin on his kisser. It amazed me how naive Beaver was to the suggestions of his so-called friends like Gilbert, the always eating Larry Mondelo, and Whitey Whitney who talked to you as if your were deaf. They were a bunch of rat faced characters and Beaver was the perfect stooge for their follies! Still it was a great show for as long as it lasted. -- Submitted By: (MichaelJL) on April 13, 2010, 12:25 pm

Remington Steele - TV Shows
Like "Moonlighting", it worked best when they actually INVESTIGATED cases with some good sexual tension in the mix instead of having their . . .relationship get the full focus. It went on for too long and, of course, the suits trying forcing Pierce Brosnan's hand by making him come back after he'd already accepted the James Bond role made for some unpleasant shows because his hatred of being there was pouring out of every pore- and then they threw in some new guy no one ever heard of before. They should have just let the thing go when he got James Bond. Where are Stefanie Powers and that new guy anyway? Oh, and Doris Roberts seemed MUCH happier being on "Raymond" than having to deal with all this flak. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 13, 2010, 9:37 am

LOGAN'S RUN - TV Shows
It seemed a somewhat tame version of the original sci-fi movie. I knew it was cheesy and all but what made it bone for me was when there was an episode when their arch-enemy Francis actually gave them a 'ten minute head start'! Since when do arch-enemies play fair or by the rules? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 13, 2010, 9:17 am

Venture Bros., The - TV Shows
The Venture Brothers has never boned, although I understand why many think it did when Sgt. Hatred moved into Brock Sampson's position. He isn't meant to replace the character at all, even being the anti-Sampson in many ways. I think it was great that the show's producers were brave enough to leave one of the best characters out of many of the last season's episodes. It only beared the strength of the show as a whole, as ratings have been higher than ever. This shows constant running gags, pulp culture references, derivative humor, alongside heart pounding action sequences, extended storylines, and outlandish characters provide the very best half-hour animated original program Adult Swim has offered up to audiences so far. -- Submitted By: (Shiddy_Smell) on April 12, 2010, 12:56 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
I believe it jumped after the 1999 season. The show completley lost its touch. The storylines didn't grasp the audience as much as it did before. It seems like the writers got all mixed up because people were liking Family Guy and South Park and desperatly tried to 1 up them but failed miserably. -- Submitted By: (Rape_Factory) on April 12, 2010, 6:34 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
The show defiantly jumped when it came back on the air. The first 3 seasons were amazing, especially the 2nd season. But then Seth got ahead of himself and completely ruined the show. Family Guy's old humor was more of a story that had a strong plot line followed by clever jokes that actually don't rely on celebrities. This made make FG amazing, you can enjoy the story and appreciate the jokes in the episodes a whole lot more. Now the new episodes dont have a well thought out story, and the jokes are either very dull or very outrageous where its not even funny because its way too predictable now. Plus the characters have completely changed like what other people mentioned. Peter was a simple dad that made stupid decisions but did have a heart and care about his family. Now, he is just this 1 dimensional character without a personality that has the same retarded look and actions. Stewie was obviously the evil boy genius that had his funny moments. Now hes gay and lost his evil and not as likable for fans, I believe. You see all these shirts of Stewie, quoting him being evil, not him being gay. Now we got Meg, the average teen that goes through bumps and bruises through highschool. Now shes useless and is the family's bash toy. And Brian, that used to be a dog with wisdom that gives advice and also drinks alcohol, now hes this annoying unfunny preachy liberal which is basically a way for Seth to give out his political point to his audience. Like the gay rights episode or the atheist episode, we dont care, this show should make me laugh, not be enlightened by democratic party. -- Submitted By: (Rape_Factory) on April 12, 2010, 12:15 am

Murphy Brown - TV Shows
It has nothing to do with paranoia. It is what it is (or was). The show, when it got around to doing politics, was pretty much bent to the left and sometimes expressed that through wishful thinking storylines. The violent "republican gets injured" scenarios was a real turn off. -- Submitted By: (bmovies) on April 10, 2010, 3:13 pm

Magnum P.I. - TV Shows
Never boned. The only episode that could have come close was "Mack's Back" and even that episode managed to blend all of the qualities that made Magnum such a great show - humor, heart, the bond that the main four characters shared. It wrapped up the loose ends from earlier episodes, and brought back Mack - kind of. Magnum P.I. was the rare TV show where the lead character is fully developed from the pilot. Much of that was due to Tom Selleck's input (the original idea was for Magnum to own the Ferrari and be a jet-set playboy of a Private Eye...pardon me, Private Investigator). From the beginning to the end, Magnum P.I. was without a doubt one of the best shows to have aired in the past 30 years. -- Submitted By: (JAFO) on April 9, 2010, 9:26 pm

America's Funniest Home Videos - TV Shows
This show is still great to watch. It definitely got close to boning when they dropped Bob Saget and tried to be hipster, and occasionally their choices for the top three aren't even close to being the funniest For example, when people film billboards. The Jesus sign next to the sex billboard? Yeah it's ironic. That's probably why they put it there, idiot. Still, it's a good hour of tv. And to respond to some claims made in the comments: YouTube sucks in comparison because it has no filter for the tons of idiotic, unfunny people who post a seemingly unending stream of nonsense to the site; Some of the videos are definitely staged, but citing a dog dressed in a silly outfit as one where the creators intended us to believe that the dog dressed itself? Come on. A better example would be the video of the hawk that swoops down and eats the kid's mouse (which I believe won some money) or the video where the kid drives the toy fire truck away and it snags the table cloth making a mess (a direct ripoff of a commercial that was on tv at the exact same time. I think it also won money); Finally, the votes for serious injuries? A quick google search didn't result in any actual evidence of serious injury. I did however find many sites and blogs written by crybabies that make a leap of assumption that when so-and-so trips and falls, they were immediately rushed to the hospital while their good for nothing family tried to profit off of their injury. Likewise, another unlikely leap would be for these folks to lighten up. -- Submitted By: (tucsonspeed6) on April 9, 2010, 10:01 am

MADtv - TV Shows
Many from the original cast were truly talented comedians. As the years rolled by and more of them left, their replacements were second rate actors with shoes too big to fill. If not for Michael McDonald staying for so long with his Stewart gag (and many other funny characters), the show would have died long before it finally did. -- Submitted By: (Shiddy_Smell) on April 6, 2010, 11:08 am

Pushing Daisies - TV Shows
No doubt that this show was great, but sadly it was a victim of the Writer's Guild Strike, which sidelined the production of many TV shows, and new shows like this one were given no chance to succeed. But who knows, sometimes the shorter lived a great TV show is, the better. I'm not saying it didn't deserve a good run, but at least a run of four to seven seasons is decent for many shows, any longer and we are soon reminded of why websites like BoneTheFish exist. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on April 6, 2010, 10:09 am

Smurfs, The - TV Shows
MCS, Smurfette was created by Gargamel as a way to distract the other Smurfs and lure them to him. She also originally had black hair but that was changed to blond after Papa Smurf reformed her. Other than that, this was a silly show but it was a fun childhood memory. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on April 6, 2010, 9:51 am

Beavis and Butthead - TV Shows
Anything and everything a kid (or an adult to be honest) is exposed to can influence their behaviour in positive and negative ways. Seems to me that it used to be that if a friend were a bad influence, parents would tell their kids to stay away from said person. They wouldn't just say that, they would enforce it if possible. Likewise, there were movies, shows, books etc that you simply didn't expose your kids to. I understand that a parent cannot watch their kid(s) 24/7. However, I also believe that it's the job of a parent to instill in their child the difference between real and fantasy, right and wrong, thinking before doing etc. Bottom line is that until a kid is old and mature enough that they can police themselves, their parents shouldn't expose them to material that could be a bad influence. At the very least, they need to explain the importance of not doing the things these characters do and not saying what they say. If one is going to let their young and impressionable kids watch a show like this and said kids end up mimicking something from the show with negative results, you don't blame the show. Just like if you swear around your kids, you don't blame them when they start swearing. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on April 5, 2010, 2:13 pm

X-Files - TV Shows
I never got into this show myself, but this was a defining series of the 90s. Any study in 90s pop culture for years will have to mention this series. This along with The Simpsons and Married...with Children put Fox on the map. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on April 5, 2010, 12:45 pm
