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.

Californication - TV Shows
I'm not exactly sure when it boned the fish. I think it was a gradual process as we realized that the show was little more than David Duchovny boning any woman with a pulse. -- Submitted By: (JoelP) on April 15, 2010, 7:44 pm

Frank's Place - TV Shows
I seemed to be one of the few folks who found this show about a group of quirky restaraunteurs and their customers in pre-Katrina New Orleans. I think it captured many of the charming nuances of the city well (without dwelling on the serious issues)- and I liked the idea of there being a 'Waitress Emeritus' an elderly semi-retired server who was would hang out at the restaurant ready to serve her favorite longtime customers. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 15, 2010, 12:11 pm

I thought it was hilarious how David Hasselhoff would get offended if anyone thought the show was about 'T and A'- as if this was watched due to family values and there were NO slow-mo shots of lifeguards running and bouncing! LOL -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 15, 2010, 12:06 pm

According to Jim - TV Shows
Yeah, DolFan, it did. Jim choked on some snack and died and then went to Purgatory where they had Kimberly Williams-Paisley come back (after having left the show for a year or so to bear her and Brad Paisley's firstborn son) to play Dana. ..as the Devil who battled over Jim's soul with Andy as Jim's Advocate (never mind that both these sibs-in-law were supposed to be alive)- and then Jim woke up and the last thing seen was a shot of a snack getting caught in his windpipe. The end. As you say, it seems like it's been on for 20 years so why bother with something so stupid as that finale. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 15, 2010, 11:57 am

Right before Obama was elected you'd have thought Republicans were some evil group of aliens in human disguise like the lizards from V!

I want to make a comment about the merchandising reason/comments...RIGHT ON. Currently, at Burger King, there is YET ANOTHER Spongebob-based toyline.

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

It seemed a somewhat tame version of the original sci-fi movie.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

It BTF'ed when that dumb kid set a fire and the kid's stupid parents blamed B&B instead of the fact they were not supervising the kid in the first place.

The way that Celebrity editions were run did not bother me that much, it was not like the celebs were gonna keep the cash, it was going to charity, so if that extra help ment more cash for the charity, that is great. It did bone when it got overexposed like it did. Great concept, but since it was first of its kind (at least in the US), it got whored out, and everybody either went to rip it off, or even if they had something original, they got branded as a rip off. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on April 4, 2010, 9:40 pm

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008 TV series) - TV Shows
I am a huge fan of the Star Wars books set post Return of the Jedi. I watch this show because I am a fan. However, I really feel that the whole "Clone Wars" era of the epic is slowly killing what I loved most as a child. Ahsoka Tano is twice as bad the character as Jar Jar Binks, and what's worse, she wasn't even mentioned in Episode 3, so her life and impending death must be totally insignificant. But I do enjoy watching some of the animated fight and battle scenes that give me more of the old Star Wars that I knew and loved. Finally, I know the animation is questionable, but honestly it had to be to produce as many episodes in so many different locales with so many different characters in the time alloted. Be fair, folks. Lucasfilms has done a fairly decent job with entertaining the younger, new Star Wars generation from week to week and they are still holding my attention at the age of 27. I say it hasn't boned, because it could be so much worse, and given the history of George Lucas (Howard the Duck, need I say more?), he can really, really screw up a good thing. -- Submitted By: (Shiddy_Smell) on April 4, 2010, 6:02 pm

Clerks: The Animated Series - TV Shows
This show died before it had a chance to bone. Certainly wasn't nearly as funny as the first movie which it was based on, nor the second movie that followed, but it had all our familiar characters animated, doing what they did best, getting in over their heads, making pop culture reference, and resolving little in the end. Produced by Kevin Smith, this show deserved more time on the air before it was cancelled. There simply wasn't enough marketing. I didn't even discover it until years after it was produced when it debuted on Adult Swim. -- Submitted By: (Shiddy_Smell) on April 4, 2010, 5:47 pm

I was 12 when this show premiered and I couldn't have been more stunned. Who better to upstage Letterman and Leno on late night than Space Ghost and his former enemies turned endentured servants to Ghost Plant Productions, Moltar, Zorak, and Brak. Finally, a late night host who's comic delivery is obliviously on point, and the guests are celebrities we really want to see on television. Bobcat Goldthwait, Wierd Al Yankovich, etc... "Old Kentucky Shark" was by far the best episode, but there really never was a bad one. And God bless this show for giving rise to Adult Swim, my guiltiest of all pleasures. I never miss a night, unless something tragic happens. I don't care if it's mostly reruns. I am still laughing harder than I would watching anything else. Cartoon Planet gave me all these years of smiles. I will never have a sour word to say against it. -- Submitted By: (Shiddy_Smell) on April 4, 2010, 5:38 pm

According to Jim - TV Shows
Although I admit it has its share of lame (and even nasty) moments, I actually liked this show until the awful finale. I guess because even the somewhat snooty sister-in-law Dana and sidekick dorky bro-in-law Andy were shown to be multi-dimensional who could each step out of their 'normal' roles and either save or ruin the day unexpectedly. Yeah, Jim usually was the couch-potato schmuck who got shown up by his smart hotty wife but sometimes he'd show some insight and sometimes Cheryl would do zany stuff -and that helped keep the sitcom from getting stuck in a rut. Oh, and I had to love the [unstated Albanian] Jim having an altar ego of the Irish Green Man who was the bane of Chicago on St. Paddy's Day! LOL One thing, though that bugged me was the show's refusal to EVER allow Jim, Cheryl or even his siblings-in-law to be referred to by a surname- even in situations where the other person would normally have used surnames when addressing them (e.g. police, teachers, ministers,etc.). Even if they didn't want to go the route of considering Jim's or Cheryl's differing ethnicities, why not at least give them some generic surnames? Still, I thought it was overall a fun show (and sometimes it was fun to consider how many ways Cheryl could pronounce 'Jim' LOL). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 3, 2010, 4:55 pm

I think it boned when they had the Celeb Editions- and evidently some egomaniacs couldn't stand the idea of their stupidity broadcast on national television so they let the other celebs 'help' them with the answers from the pit which they NEVER would have allowed ordinary contestants to do! Even though the Celeb Editions were playing for charities, they STILL should have insisted they strictly answer the questions on their own or with the show's alotted Lifelines.

I think what happened here was the ballot stuffer(s) pushed up "Never Boned" and as the number one reason. Topics with suspected stuffed ballots lose those reasons(IIRC, Colbert Report's "Never Boned" reason was over 400!). Day One was probably another reason with ballot-stuffing. Notice how Day One is no longer an option, but Never boned has been put back (you can tell because there's an exclamation point after "still rocks"). Then again, people (Reps and Dems alike) might think Colbert Report sucks because 1) it just isn't funny anymore, or 2) it was never funny to begin with. I never watched Colbert Report, so I can neither pan nor praise it. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 3, 2010, 2:36 pm

American Chopper - TV Shows
The Teutuls became celebrities. Somewhere along the line (possibly the move to TLC) the show became more about their everyday doings than about the bikes they built. What made the show good was that it documented really cool bikes from start to finish, with the bonus of this really quirky family running the shop. I didn't even mind when they started putting the Teutuls in contrived situations to film what happens. But then it just got to be a little Teutul soap opera, the bikes got less creative and eventually just kind of faded into the background. The change from two-part to single episodes might well mark the exact boning point, since that was pretty much where they stopped documenting whole projects. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 3, 2010, 12:34 pm

Was good until: he ran for in the democratic primary in 2008. when Bush left, Obama got elected, and the balance of political power shifted to the left (a bit), and finally, when he did his special live from irak.

Medium - TV Shows
I think "Medium" is actually based on an actual woman named Alison Dubois(sp?) who worked with the police in solving crimes. "Ghost Whisperer" is just retarted. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on April 2, 2010, 10:15 am

Season 8 has made me realise why this is being cancelled. I can take the fact that CTU / the Whitehouse etc can be constantly attacked but 8 seasons in a row CTU etc have employed an undercover mole, do they not have recruitment screening procedures, every small business I know do background checks but not the anti terrorist unit of the USA.

Ghostbusters (Filmation) - TV Shows
I'm voting day one because the show if nothing else was a scheme by Filmation to capitalize on the success of a better production. Even if this was the first group of characters to have the name "Ghostbusters" it was pale in comparison to the movie version, and worse yet kids who know how to read could look at a TV Guide and get the wrong idea of what the cartoon is about. And even though Columbia and DIC had to add the word "Real" to alter the title of their franchise, this legal agreement ended up working to their advantage because they had the Ghostbusters that people knew about, and was convincing enough for people to think "yeah, of course they are the REAL deal." I think Filmation should have invested more time in a better show than becoming bitter about the use of a name, and truth is, a certain classic Disney cartoon would qualify as the original Ghostbusters anyway so what were they getting at? -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on March 27, 2010, 4:17 pm

Earth 2 - TV Shows
It makes sense they would lose people, but they killed off too many. Like I mentioned before, a show doesn't work when you kill off cast members, especially when they cannot be logically replaced on a show. Killing off cast gets to be too much of a soap opera scenario a la ER. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on March 24, 2010, 10:20 pm

South Park - TV Shows
Disagree about it being preachy. If anything, its going into current events, and ripping them just right. So many have tried to, and failed, sometimes epically, when they get into current events, with it turning into nothing more than preachfests that turn off anybody who disagrees. South Park uses common sense way more times than not, and if you disagree with it, you are probably one of those idiots that they are ripping on. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 24, 2010, 11:19 am

Friday Night Videos - TV Shows
diezman's "MTV alternative" comment is right on. To expand on it a little bit, back in the day when a lot of people didn't even have cable (let alone MTV), Friday Night Videos was the **only** way to keep up on what the latest cool videos were. For me, FNV still rocks. I watched it in junior high and high school, and in 1985 went off to college where the dorm had a cable package that included MTV, so I was fortunate enough to miss the celebrity guest host era and the gradual departure from the all-video format that made FNV so radically awesome -- please don't mind the momentary drift into 80s-speak! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on March 23, 2010, 9:04 pm

Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, The - TV Shows
This series boned when I realized that nothing special happens. Episode 1 (technically episode 11 or so) was a cheesy in movie episode and it reminded me of Home Movies, and so far I enjoyed it. Then I started watching the episodes in order and with the exception of that episode I found myself disappointed. While the series itself is not bad, it is generic and boring and that is a shame considering it showed promise. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on March 23, 2010, 5:01 pm

Shield, The - TV Shows
A truly bold and gritty series with interesting and realistic characters in a slowly unfolding drama of street dangers. It shows the challenges of police work and temptation of corruption without being a mindless action-flick or usual network cop drama. It exposed police corruption unashamed, showing that it is most often done for good reasons; 1) to catch the bad guy you can't get to, 2) protect the people doing the dangerous work, 3)correct accidents or mistakes that would hurt good people, etc. There's always the bad reason too; greed. The good people involved in the bad (Lem) are torn up and eventually destroyed by true evil doing the work. The truly evil (Shane) revel in their sneaky power until it consumes them. On the other hand, the mostly bad (Vic) struggle being torn by being both at once, just as the half bad (Ronnie) get left in the dust in the end because they weren't dark enough to survive under the circumstances. The show's creator stated that the evil Vic created in Shane was a monster that had to come back and bite its master. At least by the end, no one walked away unscathed in some way (even Vic lost his kids and wife and career despite avoiding death or prsion). Every aspect of police work was addressed, and no stone left unturned in exposing the fraternity of bad boys, self righteous do-gooders, budding politicians, and generally honest street cops mixed in with the baddies they trick, manipulate and torture "in the name of justice". Too bold for networks, and too unedited for most viewers, so it's likes may never be seen again. Shadows of it try to live on in the new series Justified, and in Sons of Anarchy. -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 3:31 pm

Shield, The - TV Shows
What a truly unique police drama that tackles the big problem and makes you root for the (BAD)-Good guys to continue to get away with doing their bad...I mean, um, good and useful work. It shows how some police corruption is done for good reasons (to put away guys you can't get to playing by the book, or to correct accidents and mistakes that harmed good people, or just avoid bad consequences for people doing a risky job in a rough world). But once the characters fall down that hole of writing their own rules and doing whatever they please, they can't get out. Truly good characters (like Lem) can't handle the effects of their evil and get stamped out by the truly bad. The truly bad (Shane) eventually are caught-up with, but the half good (Vic) are torn between both sides flopping back forth just trying to -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 3:16 pm

South Park - TV Shows
The opposite of boning, it gets better the longer it goes(depsite some stinker episodes in any season). The original seasons are childish and boring potty-humor, and some current ones are hilarious satire of current events, TV/movies, politics, celebrity stupidity and every topic that makes American culture so unique. Okay, they still do some cheap shock-humor stuff that can spoil a good satire episode, but whatever they make fun of (Dog whisperer, World of Warcraft, paparrazi harrassing Brittney Spears, etc) still carries the show. South Park's main problem is that the episodes only work when current, and the joke is lost even a few years later (i.e. the class mascot election episode was really about Bush v. Gore; the fact that the nation had to choose between "turd sandwhich" and "giant douche") and just isn't that funny years later. Still, South Park is a thermometer that reads the temperature of pop culture stupidity, may it live for another 10 seasons to make fun of the stupidity in our lives. -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 3:07 pm

Tour of Duty - TV Shows
A classic example of network interference with good show writing. Season 1 tried to be drama of the soldier's troubles dealing with the war and a Platoon-for-TV take on the bad stuff Americans did in the war while trying to do right or just follow orders, and the old "War turns good men into dogs" problem. However, then the China Beach romance drama Vietnam show came onto the scene and Season two tried to add love interest and drama into the show to fight China Beach. As if the viewers of a serious war drama for men were the same as the romance-drama viewers of China Beach just because both shows took place during Vietnam war. The network diddled with the show to keep the wives from fighting the husband's show. But then that was not enough and the networks decided that these real-to-life characters should be super soldiers instead. This squad of usual guys drugs into the war were relabelled as Special Forces and sent on missions (without a long period of special training for such tasks). The next thing the viewers knew, their drama of the everyday soldier turned into an not-credible action show and lost the human connection that made it great TV. The Network boned this fish trying to appeal to a wider audience, and by pandering to Rambo, they lost touch with what made it a great show in the first place. -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 2:55 pm
