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.

Boohbah - TV Shows
Boo-Bah is the name of a teddy bear I had throughout my childhood (from when I was 1 day old). To see this lame, drugged-out show with the name I so lovingly called my bear just sent me on a RAMPAGE! -- Submitted By: (Burmy) on December 6, 2009, 2:22 am

Ghost Hunters - TV Shows
I still enjoy the show, but it seems like they are being pushed to determine that more places are "haunted". Much of the evidence they used to find unsure, they now use to make it more exciting. In the first few seasons most of the places they investigated were declared not haunted, but in recent shows, everything is haunted. It just makes them less believable. As a ghost hunter I have discovered maybe one in ten places I investigate are haunted. Granted I do not have the financial backing to go to America's most haunted places. Which may be another aspect of this issue. TAPS used to go to people's houses to help them, now they go to more interesting spots. I suppose ratings are an issue. -- Submitted By: (Qsh) on December 5, 2009, 11:44 am

Battlestar Galactica 2004 - TV Shows
The finale was an odious way to end a show that once held so much promise, but Battlestar Galactica truly boned after the New Caprica story (which I loved, btw). All of the contemptible plot points that culminated in the dreadful ending ("the final five," "dead Starbuck," "Watchtower," etc.) have their roots in the ashes of New Caprica. It's also right around the same time when Jane Espenson became a producer. -- Submitted By: (pbrain) on December 5, 2009, 10:08 am

Sex and the City - TV Shows
Not having cable, "SATC" was a show which I had heard so much about and was able to view when it came to "regular" tv via syndication. I was amazed at the level of writing in this day and age because I avoided sitcoms like the Plague. I found most of them stunningly unfunny and gravitated towards reality shows and reruns like 'All in the Family.' The witty dialogue of "SATC" is truly impressive, but I believe it JTSd (sorry, but I am not feeling this new expression) during the sixth and final season with Charlotte becoming a Jew and Carrie taking up the "The Russian" (oh, and before him, that whiny little biotch Berger). In the case of Carrie with Berger, she acted manic, which was out of character for her...well...character. It was an exaggeration which marks the demise of tv shows. "All in the Family" began doing more physical comedy and Archie's malpropisms started going thru the roof. Another red flag is when the characters over do it, as in "Roseanne" when Laurie Metcalf became more shrill. So it was good that "Sex and the City" ended when it did. It preserved its snappy writing and minimized the lamola plot lines. -- Submitted By: (jaws) on December 4, 2009, 9:03 pm

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - TV Shows
One of the things that made this show unique was the lack of a time limit. Contestants could take as long as they liked to answer a question. The bonus? It added to the suspense factor, especially when the question thoroughly stumped the contestant. Now that WW2BAM has a time limit, it's turned into yet another quiz show. It wasn't as good when Regis left, but it at least had a redeeming factor. They flushed it away by adding a time limit. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 3, 2009, 8:45 am

Knight Rider (2008) - TV Shows
4. The quality of the episodes started to drop. It started off with a complex, half secretive history of Mike Traceur, later Mike Knight, with a complex web of lies and the mystery of Karr only occasionally mentioned in fleeting dialog. The interpersonal relationships between the characters left plenty of room for development. Then FLAG is gone, KARR is gone, and the plot is gone. We're left with Mike showing up at a random place, gun fight, car chase, fist fight, car chase - the end! Gun fight, car chase, fist fight, car chase - the end! Completely destroyed what could have been so great. -- Submitted By: (KaseyAkira) on November 28, 2009, 2:58 pm

3. FLAG. The Foundation for Law and Government. I liked how this was a branch of the government that was involved in counter-terrorist activities and took on special cases - "In a world of criminals who operate above the law". Then they got rid of FLAG. All of it. WTF??? Suddenly the whole thing is shut down, the daughter of the guy in charge inherits 10 billion or something, then its back to just 4 people? How do they decide what cases they'll go after? Do they just randomly pick? One of the cases was some guy who nobody knew but he died under mysterious circumstances. WHY DOES ANYONE CARE??? At least with the government you get the sense that someone is prioritizing targets with at least national interest at hand if nothing else. Having just 4 kids run the whole place makes it seem like Scooby and the gang investigating random mysteries. -- Submitted By: (KaseyAkira) on November 28, 2009, 2:53 pm

Knight Rider (2008) - TV Shows
This show had sooooo much potential, and they blew it so incredibly bad, it was painful to watch. 1. The opening. I loved the music... but whats with all the super fast close ups and one second explosions? The opening is just a blur of images that leave you dazed rather than dazzled. 2. Karr. We had this HUGE lead up to Karr being revealed. I mean a careful, methodical lead up that really built the suspense - especially since Mike was his driver, but had his memory erased! Finally they show him - OMG some type of transforming robot thing! THEN!... Kitt kills him. The end. WHAT???? You could have let Karr survive the initial encounter and had like 10 seasons of plot surrounding this, all leading up to some incredible series finale with an epic battle between KITT and KARR, government vs terrorist, law and order vs chaos and corruption. Instead they had Kitt fight Karr right from the start, in a terribly choreographed scene, when Kitt was supposed to be only partially functional anyway. Its ridiculous. -- Submitted By: (KaseyAkira) on November 28, 2009, 2:47 pm

Dawson's Creek - TV Shows
Series 3. Up to that point Dawson's Creek had been one of those shows that even if you were ambivalent about teen dramas it could win you over. The characters had an ingrained history and whilst their capacity for articulation was a stretch, the feelings they emoted about felt very real. It could have done with more subtlety- how much more surprising and wonderful would it be if Dawson and Joey hadn't discussed the changes that were happening to them so that when they finally got together it really wasn't something you'd expect (but would feel very natural and believable all the same). Series Two i'd say was the most refined season, and then with Series Three it just seemed like there was someone new in charge who just didn't really like or respect the show, and turned it into a contrived, desperate sex comedy and transformed the characters beyond recognition. Something of my respect for the show died when that happened and despite things picking up afterwards I just didn't feel the trust towards the show that I used to. It stopped being special to me, it stopped having a firm place in my heart because it seemed to have lost its own heart. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on November 25, 2009, 8:17 pm

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) - TV Shows
With the new movie "Turtles Forever" out, I just want to take this opportunity to say, "I called it." Well, some of it anyway. A review I wrote on JumpTheShark (http://web.archive.org/web/20061031120857/http://www.jumptheshark.com/): (Quote) The franchise itself is beyond jumping: somehow it manages to stay between pop culture and the pure collector's clique well enough that it can resurrect into the public eye every few years without becoming stale. Many other old franchises have tried this, but none up to this point have succeeded as well as TMNT. Also, with interdimensional travel a recurring theme in the stories, the entire series actually has a built in self starter: whenever one incarnation becomes stale, simply focus in on another dimension. With that said, the 2003 series has definitely jumped the shark hardcore with the 4th season. Stuff like Shredder being an Alien and such didn't really hurt the series or the franchise, however, the triple whammy of marginalizing Casey Jones's insanity, making April an expert ninja (who can kick Casey around whenever she wants to) and making Shredder an inferior combatant to Bishop could pretty much end this show tomorrow. Did Eastman and Laird not learn from the previous series what NOT to do with certain characters? If nothing else, haven't they read the runs of the comics that they originally parodied and similar comics? Hell do these guys even watch professional wrestling at all? If so, I would think that they would know that things like marginalizing the villain and the anti-hero are big no-no's when it comes to good storytelling: your heroes are only as good as your villains, and your anti-heroes are good solutions to problems that the guys in the white hats are unwilling or unable to deal with; you don't want to neuter them either, or you'll find your storylines a lot more boring. Eastman and Laird have managed to do both, turning Casey Jones from a crazed justice driven vigilante to an animated version of Ray Romano, and making the Shredder a buffoon on the level of the original animated Shredder of the latter part of the first series. I really like Bishop and the new Rat King as tough enemies for the TMNT, but no one should be outshining the Shredder as far as fighting ability and sheer deviousness, something which Bishop and hell, even Baxter Stockman do regularly. April as a super ninja has also got to go. I know it's Eastman and Laird's series, and they can do whatever they want with it. That said, my opinion, the move sucks. Having her sneak around enemy bases and beat up enemy ninjas (while neutered Casey sits around getting beat up) doesn't make Splinter look better as a ninja master, it makes THE ENEMIES LOOK WORSE, and as a result, it makes the HEROES (aka the TMNT) look that much worse as well. If you don't believe me roll on over to the ST: Voyager comments, and see how Janeway's regular abuse of the Borg went over with fans: do they consider Janeway a hardass or do the Borg suck in public opinion? Apply that answer to the TMNT, and you'll see why April needs to go back to second bananas scene filler real quick. I really don't think that the series is ever coming back, and the rumors I hear of the 6th season being purely comedy oriented (and the 5th being DVD only) don't help matters much either. That is a shame, because the series started out with so much potential...(/Quote) Yeah, season 6 wasn't permanent, nor was April's super ninjitsu, so I missed those. Did get the dimensional crossover though, so I think this might survive the Nickelodeon crossover as well. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on November 24, 2009, 10:42 pm

Quantum Leap - TV Shows
This show came close a few times, often to connect to a popular fad or movie. Leaping into a chimp (The Right Stuff 1983/Episode 407 The Wrong Stuff 1991)in season 4 was a goofy stretch. But for me, the low point was when it violated all the rules it had created to explain "leaping" by having Sam leap into his great-grandfather during the Civil War. (Ken Burns' Civil War series 1990/Episode 520 1993) They tried to explain this by saying that it had to do with common DNA. They used a similar expaination to explain the leap into a chimp, by the way. -- Submitted By: (UUTodd) on November 24, 2009, 1:16 pm

(Tom became the punching bag, and Jerry and Tom's owner were @!$*s). I could never get into these revivals and movie remakes of the shorts.

I think this show in many ways did more of a disservice towards understanding ecological issues. The main problem is that it never really pointed out who the real bad guys are. They created all these recurring villains that share the goal in covering the world in toxic waste but without any affiliation to industry. But then again, if Captain Planet was fighting corporate interests and regular people, then companies would refuse to advertise on the show.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987) - TV Shows
This was a fun show back in the day, so I wouldn't think that it ever boned simply because of it being a childhood memory. The movies though were a real eye opener, at first when they did the live-action movies in the early 90's I thought they were simply compensating for things that were only possible in a cartoon, but when I got older I learned of how the Turtles were actually adapted from an underground comic that was targeted to teens and young adults. And I realized the movies were reflecting this, well at least the first one and the recent CGI version, whereas Secret Of The Ooze was written to avoid issues from the parents. Of course, I know some like to view the cartoon as "bastardization" but for me it was something I once loved and that's how I want to remember it. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on November 21, 2009, 9:41 pm

They would throw in a "video classic" by The Who or Jimi Hendrix or the like every week.

Instead, we got stuck with the likes of unsightly garbage like The Amanda show, All Growed Up, Butt Ugly Martians, Yakity Yak, and now more recently Mr. Meaty, The Mighty Bee, 6Teen (which is currently clogging up Cartoon Network's airspace, I belive)My Dad the Rock Star, and loads more. These shows don't have the humor or magic that the older shows had. They are just potty humor, butt jokes, repetitive jokes, loud, ear-piercing voices/screaming, and stupidity. I have enjoyed Pre-movie SpongeBob, FOP (before it got lame), Avatar, Drake and josh, Teenage Robot though. But basically this channel is nothing but Teeny-bopper teen/tween shows, about 7 other shows (sorry Nick, I remember when you showed 17 shows a day, and never showed the same show twice... Unless it was a marathon) and SpongeBob (which is a good show; But, again, who on God's green earth wants to watch this show 50 times a day? I sure don't(see above). NICK JR- I don't really have a comment, I dislike the shows that are aired on it now, but the block is for Preschoolers. NICK AT NIGHT- Boned recently. Most of these shows are good, but the block is losing it's variety, Only a handful of shows are shown now. At least tell them to cancel the god-awful "Glenn Martin, D.D.S." god that show is trashy and disgusting. NICKTOONS- I thought of this as the Nick equivelent of Boomerang. But it boned when they removed all the old Nick shows and replaced them with the crap shown on Nickelodeon now, or gave them 3 A.M. (death) slots... (Ren and Stimpy). NOGGIN/THE-N/TEENICK- This channel was great in the beginning. Showings of Pete and Pete, Hey Dude, Bill Nye, Ghostwriter... Alas, it just became Nick Jr... Jr. The N/Teenick recently spun off... The channel is good, That 70's show, FPOBA and the other shows were a nice touch, but Degrassi is overplayed (and I really never cared for the show, myself). -- Submitted By: (Johnny_T._Bird) on November 20, 2009, 1:18 pm

NYPD Blue - TV Shows
NYPD Blue was pretty good in spite of itself, at least for a few seasons. But it seemed to be made with the premise that the goal of the show was to get people to watch by showing nudity, having some shocking new profanity (oh my god! someone says asshole in tonight's very special episode!), and in general most episodes were sold on the fact that they had some sort of gimmick. Aside from the reliance of gimmicks, the show was pretty well written and acted for a network cop drama, actually it is about as good as it gets in terms of the gritty formulaic cop drama where the bad guy always gets caught and there's no particularly deep message. It would have aged well if so many shows weren't obviously one-time gimmicks, but it's still better than most of the 90s cop dramas. Only the original L&O and Homicide: Life on the Street rival it, but none were really masterpieces. There was no real "bone the fish" moment, but it got pretty atrocious in the later days of Jimmy Smits. It had a brief uptick with Schroeder but then settled into a long, slow decline until the series ended. I don't think the first season is really that great, personally. They hadn't yet got into their signature two-cases-a-show format... which ultimately did make the show relatively watchable, if hokey. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on November 20, 2009, 11:39 am

Titus - TV Shows
Christopher Titus breaking that 4th wall in each episode and talking to the audience about his dysfunctional family was brilliant. The Thanksgiving episode where the mom intentionally put all of her bi-polar medication in with the turkey so she could escape when her family passed out, is absolutely hilarious! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 19, 2009, 11:48 am

LauDor08, Well, it sure takes ALL kinds.

Powers That Be, The - TV Shows
What a shame that NBC couldn't see what a potential hit they had and give it a regular day and time on its schedule. Maybe if Brandon Tartikoff hadn't left NBC in '91 (he was their programming head in the '80s), he would have done so. Even a regular run on a bad night (like Saturday) would have been nice. Benson (another sitcom with a political setting) ran for seven years; The Powers That Be could have gone on for at least a few years. -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on November 19, 2009, 6:25 am

Miss America Pageant, The - TV Shows
In the fall of 1990, Bert Parks (who hosted the pageant from 1955 to 1979) was invited back to sing "Here She Is, Miss America," the song he had made famous. But he was overwhelmed and made a few mistakes, and never returned after that. -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on November 19, 2009, 6:12 am

Angry Beavers, The - TV Shows
If we still had cartoons like this, it would be worth it to wake up early on Saturday morning and watch cartoons like I did when I was a kid. Nick used to have some good cartoons. Don't get me wrong...I love SpongeBob, Fairly Oddparents, Jimmy Neutron, etc. but we used to have alotta other good cartoons such as Rugrats, Doug, Rocko's Modern Life, etc. Now, they have FanBoy and Chum-Chum?! Wtf is that? -- Submitted By: (LauDor08) on November 19, 2009, 3:41 am

Nickelodeon - TV Shows
EVERYTHING on Nickelodeon is pure garbage now. I never go to that channel anymore now that it's always airing these TEENick teeny-bopper crap. I remember when I used to go to that channel all the time, when shows like Doug, old Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, Hey Arnold, Angry Beavers, AYAOTD, etc. were on. Those were good shows. Those made me want to watch Nickelodeon. Then they stopped showing those shows, and gradually turned away from cartoons and towards TEENick. Once iCarly and Drake and Josh started airing, I never checked out Nick again. -- Submitted By: (TheFNG) on November 18, 2009, 11:21 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
If I can think of any reason why I stopped watching the Simpsons, it's because I think the show is getting old. Lets face it, it's been on the air for 20 years and while there have been periods in which the writing quality wasn't so good, seasons 9-12 specifically, it seems as though the luster of shock value that it had has been lost. Lately I cannot even bring myself to watch new episodes, I didn't even care about Treehouse of Horror this year. Fox needs to hang this show up, and actually considering their ratings success with American Idol and other shows, God knows why they feel it necessary to keep this show on the air. Even in today's sea of reality TV, it seems like the time has come, it's not like there aren't any other good shows to watch. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on November 18, 2009, 6:52 pm

Hell's Kitchen (U.S.) - TV Shows
The first couple season were cool to watch - how he would get on the chef's cases about stuff - the constant beeping out of his over dramatic cursing and all. But now - I think there should be a rule imposed on all the contestants that they are NOT allowed to curse or smoke at all - make it more like a proper British boarding school. They all take the cursing to a cartoonish state - "She better watch her F*#$*$@ A$&%) cuz I wil F$()#*% the B(%&@# up when she's not F#(#%#_ watching me!!" Whatever. Gordon should be the only one to curse as it truly adds nothing to the show and makes me figure out who the true losers are. And quit saying each new episode is shocking!! It's not. It's just as boring as the one that just ended!!! -- Submitted By: (JenniferEdwardsHart) on November 18, 2009, 9:18 am

Oprah Winfrey is amazing! She's a true inspiration and she had humble beginnings so she always gives back. She's the most charitable out of most celebs. (Hello, my favorite things? And that school in Africa?)Alotta the topics on her show are interesting and hard hitting, some more than others, but yeah. Plus, whoever goes on her show, gets their on show! She's just that powerful. If you don't like Oprah, you're just a hater. And whether she's fat or skinny, she's still pretty. -- Submitted By: (LauDor08) on November 18, 2009, 2:53 am

You've seen one episode; you've seen them all. But somebody must care, as the show has been renewed through 2012. Oh snap, at least 3 more years of 'Murray, Murray, MURRAY, I am 3000% sure he da father!' Anybody who still gets fooled by the "sexy decoy" deserves what's coming to them. OH SURE, random sober hot female strangers come up to me ALL THE TIME in a waiting room and grind themselves into me! Puh-leeze. -- Submitted By: (Nature_Boy) on November 17, 2009, 3:31 pm

Rupert - TV Shows
I'm actually surprised to see this show listed on this site, considering how many seem to have forgotten about it. This was a great show and a big step ahead of the comparable Arthur in it's use of creative story lines involving fantasy and mystery. Almost all of the episodes are worth watching, even though it is noticeable that each season of episodes appeared to be produced differently. In one season it appeared as if they were attempting to replace a number of voice actors but failed, resulting in Podgy becoming the only usable friend of Rupert. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on November 17, 2009, 1:02 pm

18 Kids and Counting - TV Shows
That woman seems to be the living embodiment of Groucho Marx's infamous (but probably apocryphal) punchline! As the story goes, when he was hosting the game show of "You Bet Your Life", each contestant would tell him a somewhat distinguishing characteristic of themselves so he could joke on it. Anyway, supposedly, one contestant told him that she was the mother of 20 children which supposedly prompted Groucho to ask her why she had so many to which she answered because she loved her husband. This allegedly prompted Groucho to say "Lady, I love my cigar a great deal,too, but even I take it out of my mouth every now and then!" Yeah, of course, it boned when they decided to put their kids in front of those 'reality show' cameras to exploit their situation! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 16, 2009, 7:46 am
