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.

SpongeBob SquarePants - TV Shows
When the characters started to degenerate into their present forms is when the show boned. It turned into a kids' show rather than something everybody could appreciate. Incidentally, what's with all the new Plankton episodes? Do the writers just think the concept's so good that they require every second episode to revolve around it? -- Submitted By: (ElBlocko) on May 5, 2010, 7:17 am

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
kingbk: Thank you. But you know what? As a tribute, I can understand wearing that pin, even for an entire season. It's no different from professional athletes spending a season wearing the number of a deceased teammate. The show had other issues and there are plenty of grounds on which to criticize it, but I'd be inclined to give Cosby a pass on the SD pin. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 5, 2010, 7:12 am

Stargate Atlantis - TV Shows
For me, the show started going downhill at the start of the 4th season. Getting rid of Weir and Beckett at the end of the 3rd season and bringing in Carter just didn't make any sense. You already have a leader in Weir, why would the producers want to bring in Carter? And why get rid of Beckett to bring in Keller? Your replacing a leader with scientist and replacing a doctor with a doctor? wtf?! And lets not go behind the scenes with all the politics about Tapping and Higginson. Here you have Tapping who just did 10 years of SG1, and she goes into Atlantis, kicks out Higginson and Tapping only stays with Atlantis for 1 season! I mean, she comes in, basically takes over another actresses job and then leaves to do her own show! Who's getting screwed here? And its not like Carter added anything to season 4. She didn't do anything that Weir could have done! Jumped the shark in Season 4, no thanks to the decisions to get rid of Weir and Beckett at the end of Season 3. -- Submitted By: (buffy) on May 4, 2010, 4:45 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
kingbk, what was with that SD pin anyway? I've noticed it but never figured out what its significance was supposed to be. Anyway ... there's an indie TV station here (Seattle area) which has been showing The Cosby Show in the early morning, airing two episodes a day. After seeing a couple of cycles through the show's run, my take is that while Cousin Pam was the nail in the coffin, the decline started with Lisa Bonet leaving the show and then (after she returned) treating it like her own personal revolving door. It got to the point where she needed THREE screen credits: One for herself, a second for her attitude, and a third for her hairdo-of-the-week. Fortunately, even after those seasons of mediocrity, the show managed to finish with a good finale. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 4, 2010, 7:23 am

Family Matters - TV Shows
The show went through three phases: 1. Pre-Urkel: A poor man's Cosby Show rip-off. Not as funny, more cheesy, weaker acting. 2. Early Urkel: Nerdy neighbor next door with a crush on Laura, a desire to be friend with Eddie, and the penchant to pester Carl Winslow. 3. Later Urkel: Moved in with the Winslow's, went through puberty, got tall, couldn't pull off the nerd thing as much anymore so they gave him an alter ego (Stefan), invents crazy things which cause bizarre adventures for him and Carl, dated Myra, broke up with Myra, Laura falls in love with him, Harriette changes, more original characters disappear, moved to CBS. To make it short, show boned from day one. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 5:48 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
I loved The Cosby Show right up until about 1990. Early on, it was one of the funniest shows on TV. The episodes like the gold fish, the track meet, Theo's shirt, Theo's earring and the grandparents anniversary were some of the funniest episodes of TV I've ever seen. Cosby in these episodes did a good job having lessons, but not being preachy. This was when the comedy and lessons were at their best balance. Towards the late 80s things started changing. The kids got older, Lisa Bonet left, then she came back, Cosby got more into the show being about black culture (moving Family Ties and putting A Different World in its place) which went against the original purpose, and Olivia and Cousin Pam joined the show. When the story lines moved away from the original kids, Clare and Cosby, it wasn't the same. Cosby and Clare became more smug with Cosby wearing that SD pin for a whole season and both acting holier than thou for the most part. The humor hasn't aged well. The personality of the show is very much 80s-early 90s and doesn't look fresh in reruns. The last episode that made me laugh to tears was the tap-dance challenge. After that, it slowly lost more and more people to the edgy and fresh (at that time) The Simpsons and never recovered. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 5:38 pm

Price Is Right, The - TV Shows
The Price is Right is, was and always will be Bob Barker's show. However, Bob Barker himself jumped probably around 1993, when Mark Goodson passed away. It was rumored that Barker only listened to two people: his wife Dorothy Jo (who passed away in 1981) and his boss Mark Goodson. When the last of those two people disappeared, he was completely in control and turned into almost a dictator. Soon came the Dian Parkinson affair, the firing of Holly Hallstrom, the firings of Janice and Kathleen, the firing of Paul Alter, the fallout with Rod Roddy and more. Eventually, Bob got too old. He couldn't hear as well, was more irritable, and had less patience. He left at the right time. I wasn't crazy when I heard Drew Carey got the job (at least it wasn't Rosie, thank God!), but he's getting better and better. The show, which was starting to get stale, has gotten fresh again with new prizes, new set pieces, a more laid-back attitude, special episodes and more. Drew doesn't imitate Bob, he brings his own spin to the show. Think Pat Sajak with a touch of Drew's own Whose Line Is It Anyways? persona and you've got his hosting style. TPIR will always be Bob's show, but Drew is doing a fine job keeping the show strong. It might have boned back. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 2:39 pm

Stargate Atlantis - TV Shows
Oh come ON!!! Nobody else voted day One??? An INCREDIBLY lame ripoff of SG1. Here's Rodney the incredibly annoying whiny scientist who somehow winds up saving the day at the end of most episodes--when it was his screwup that created the problem to begin with! Then there's Teyla the Rebel Idealist With A Cause--who also happens to know martial arts like every other stereotypical ass kicker chick in every other movie and TV show these days. Then there's the "stoic warrior guy" who couldn't hold Teal'c's jock. And hey look, there's Amnanda Tapping's character from SG1, only now she's some sort of Superwoman who can do everyone's jobs better than they can! I didn't even really like Weir. And soul-eating space vampires? I'd rather see the Ori again, and I couldn't stand them! Oy... -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:53 am

Daria - TV Shows
Oh MAN...I absolutely LOVED this show, and I somehow missed the original MTV run (probably because by that time I refused to watch MTV anymore, yeah that was it) and only saw the edited reruns on "The N". IMO it wasn't so much the appearance of Tom as it was Daria turning into every other lovestruck chick and then the show ending when the ENTIRE TIME her character was all about mocking people like that. Plus, she broke up with Tom anyway when they were picking colleges so what was the point of The Kiss? I guess the reason I liked the show so much was because in high school I *was* Daria, only male, my best (and only) friend was Jane, but also male, and my younger sister was Quinn to the hilt. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:00 am

Good LORD that opening theme was horrible. Hell, "horrible" doesn't even do it justice!

I knew right then and there I wouldn't be adding that show to my list of must-sees. Must MISSES was more like it. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 1:51 am

Just Shoot Me - TV Shows
Definitely Season 4. The writing went from fresh to suck-fest overnight, being a classic case of "New Kid on the Block" in the form of one Rebecca Ramaijn-Stamos (who suddenly became the cover-model for many issues of "Blush" magazine)-- as well as the production-team, which also changed in Season 4. Characters suddenly changed and became even more one-note than usual, to the point where the show finally earned its title and had the audience saying "Just shoot me." -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on May 2, 2010, 8:35 pm

Scooby Doo - TV Shows
Just to clarify what previous posters have talked about. First, Scrappy Doo was added. Then there were Made for TV Movies with just Shaggy, Scooby, and Scrappy. The show which you think you saw Daphne return wasn't Daphne at all, but another girl whose name I can't remember with the little Arab boy called "13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo" which was really the death of the good ol' Scooby shows when finally the ghosts were real. It wasn't even close to the original format and wasn't entertaining in the slightest. So, technically there were many incarnations of Scooby Doo, with the newest What's New Scooby Doo? bringing the old cast back. It's probably the best since the original Scooby Doo, Where Are You? -- Submitted By: (Shiddy_Smell) on May 1, 2010, 11:30 am

South Park - TV Shows
It has had times when I feared that it was becoming awful and would bone, but Matt & Trey have always surprised me and bounced back. The fact that they lampooned atheism is a much welcomed satire in today's anti-religion world. South Park has never taken itself seriously and is one of the best shows ever. Still strong at 200+ episodes and counting. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 1, 2010, 12:01 am

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
I would suggest that some who think the show got too preachy should go back and watch the original movie. The movie was NOT slapstick comedy like the show started out. It was an anti-war movie. That being said, I liked the slapstick comedy. I think it boned the fish when Burns was replaced with Winchester. -- Submitted By: (mobycat) on April 30, 2010, 7:29 pm

Dick Van Dyke Show, The - TV Shows
I don't think you can legitimately say the Beverly Hillbillies always clobbered Dick Van Dyke. They were on the same network - they never went up against each other. That, plus in the 1964 season, Dick Van Dyke actually had the better ratings. -- Submitted By: (mobycat) on April 30, 2010, 7:16 pm

Battlestar Galactica 2004 - TV Shows
Voted boned after New Caprica. The first season was excellent with 12 episodes all of great quality. Then the network wanted season 2 with 20 episodes, at the same price. Season 2 had some of the best episodes, but also the season had the first bomb episodes. The mystery of the show from season three through 4 lost me, almost worse than the X-files dogma lost me. Overall though still one of the best sci-fi series ever made! -- Submitted By: (dauntless) on April 30, 2010, 4:23 pm

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
Voted never boned still rocks! I respect DS9 because the writing got better every season, and also the series was able to really have continuity because the show was set on a stationary location. Overall the best written series of all the Star Trek's, but TNG still is the best series overall. Respected Avery Brooks acting intensity. Nana Visitor complex former terrorist, Dax..... great characters all around! -- Submitted By: (dauntless) on April 30, 2010, 4:17 pm

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
I voted never boned still rocks. TNG was the best of all the Star Trek series. I think Gene Rodenberry's vision of a ideal perfect humanity is very pleasant to watch. There is an argument the darker Star Trek got, ( DS9, Voyager) the more people pulled away from the franchise. Series still holds the test of time! -- Submitted By: (dauntless) on April 30, 2010, 4:13 pm

Star Trek: Enterprise - TV Shows
I voted boned from day one. I think what they tried to do in Season 3 was add some continuity to the show, but they went overboard with a season long arc. Season 4 was the best written season in my opinion with the 3 episode arcs, and also payed homage to the original series feel with the new Executive Producer Manny Coto. Go figure right Berman & Braga take a back seat and the show gets better? For everyone who says I like standalones, well then go watch Matlock or Murder She Wrote. Television has evolved since the 90s. -- Submitted By: (dauntless) on April 30, 2010, 4:08 pm

Stargate Atlantis - TV Shows
SGA first season was the best season of any stargate to date in my opinion. But Season 4-5 boned the fish big time. I never really liked Mckay and hated him by the end of the season.

I'm one of those folks who actually hated "Married"(yeah, yeah boo me) but thought that the performers could do better stuff. Luckily, like "Eight Rules" did with Katey Sagal and "Samantha Who" did with Christina Applegate, this show's proven me right with Ed O'Neill. I like how this cluster of unconventional families in this one extended family who each have interesting personalities have a true bond despite (because?) of their clashing unconventionalities. Plus, it's good to see Ed (or Jay) actually happily married to a passionate but goldenhearted much younger Latina and a good dad to his smarter-than-but-still-respectful-to-his-folks stepson ! Oh yeah and it's just a genuinely funny show,IMO. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 6:19 pm

New Casper Cartoon Show, The (1963-1969) - TV Shows
I thought it was a bit boring even as a kid. Living humans see him, get spooked, he pleads that he's friendly then the humans reform and accept him. Repeat theme. However; guess who voiced Casper? Nellie Oleson's mother (NOT Harriet or the actress who played her). Yeah, the voice actress who played Casper gave birth to Allison Arngrim. Don't know what's more odd- that Casper who was a boy ghost was voiced by a living woman OR that the boring Friendly Ghost is connected to one of the most entertaining unfriendly characters in TV history! Another trivia bit that seems more interesting than anything that happened on the show itself. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 5:59 pm

This one's easy. It boned when Dad fell into the Pylon going no one knows where- and the kids reacted to the loss of their sole surviving parent (with them still stuck in this weird dimension) as though they'd dropped their fries in the lunch line. Yeah, Uncle Jack came along right afterwards and they all acted as though Dad was totally expendable as long they had Uncle Jack to beat back Scarface. About the only episode after that that was any good was when they met Medusa who turned an entire dino into stone before they did her in (guess how). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 5:41 pm

Hard Time on Planet Earth - TV Shows
MCS, As a public service, I'm about to do for you(as well as the other Regulars+ all the 'Net trolls) what I've done for very few folks in my offline life- admit I actually watched this show. Yeah, I'm enough to remember it and was even legal age so I can't use the folly of youth as an excuse for having seen it! Back then, I was somewhat into sci-fi stuff and thought the idea of an alien trying to find out the customs of our planet intriguing enough to watch this. Not a bad premise in itself, right? Well,here goes what this was about, this alien warrior who rebelled against authority gets 'imprisoned' on Earth in a human body. Well, because he happened to steal some mechanic's coveralls for his first clothing and the coveralls were tagged with the name of 'Jesse', this would be the only name he'd be known as. With only the advantage of superhuman strength to help him survive, he was supposed to infiltrate our world observing customs as quietly and inobtrusively as possible. Of course, Jesse being somewhat of a warrior hothead couldn't do anything quietly and often would get into trouble by taking everything quite literally the humans would say to him. Oh, he had a combination nag/companion in the person. .er machine. .thing of this big, talking floating eyeball known as Control who at first was his marked advesary but once Jesse threatened to inform the alien bigwigs of Control's incompetence and offtask behavior, they truced it over to become kinda friends. Of course, this meant that Jesse had to constantly disguise, hide this eyeball to keep his cover from being an alien blown. After a few episodes, Jesse actually seemed to prefer staying here instead of going back where he came from and a great deal of his warrior angst got defused. Okay, if you've read this far, you get the idea that this seemed somewhat a lame show that didn't last long for good reason but I stuck it out as long as I could (what else was there to watch in 1989?). However; the show boned entirely when they had an episode in which Jesse became a Disney theme park employee but of course got into all kind of Disney scrapes. The floating eyeball somehow got drunk and wound up singing 'It's a Small World After All'. That was IT for me. I hope this helps. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 5:30 pm

Charlie Brown Specials - TV Shows
It's worth noting that the original Charlie Brown Christmas special would have turned out very different if Schulz hadn't stood up to the network executives. The network suits objected to a) The quotation from scripture that Linus makes, b) The use of actual childrens voices (rather than adult voice actors), c) The absence of a laugh track and d) the Vince Guaraldi jazz score. In other words, nearly all the things that makes the program truly memorable and distinctive (and which continue to make it a seasonal favorite 45 years later) are all things that the Network wanted to excise. Socre one for Charles Schulz for insisting on his vision for the program. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on April 28, 2010, 10:51 am

Dexter - TV Shows
Never before have I wanted to like show so much and been so sorely disappointed. I couldn't make through the first season. Michael C. Hall is a terrific actor, and the concept is great. Trouble is, the writing sucks, all the characters are annoying and badly acted, and the worst thing of all - the show is ruined by the voice-overs. I don't want to hear Dexter tell me every thought that comes into his head. Especially when the purpose is to point out heavy-handed metaphors, such as when he looks at the box of doughnuts and says, "It's empty. Just like me." When I heard that line, that was the moment I realized I was watching a really stupid show. Michael C. Hall deserves a much better show with decent writing and a strong supporting cast, like he had on Six Feet Under. Hopefully he will move on soon to something more worthy of his talent. -- Submitted By: (raskolnikov) on April 27, 2010, 1:43 pm

The mom had a metal plate in her head and there was a shop teacher that had this custom metal arm made for him. And it's funny how the older Pete exaggerated on everything at the beginning of each episode, a TV show that makes a big deal out of silly things, probably the first of it's kind. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on April 27, 2010, 8:38 am

Wayne Brady is one of the funniest guys around but his comedic talents are wasted on this show. It needs a skilled con man as host like Monty Hall. And while the 1960s+ version with Monty advanced the ball a bunch of yards on torturing game show contestants, which maybe wasn't a great thing as seen in primetime TV games today, at least the 1960s LMAD games were cleverly written. On the 2009 version of LMAD, they're often lame in comparison.

For me, Season One was so bad it was good. But in Season Two, too many episodes were so bad it wasn't funny.

True, but, especially in some of the later rounds, it could actually be good strategy. Think of it.

I agree. It was really annoying how the smart ones were always the ones kicked off. But there was always a great sense of satisfaction when the smart one was the tie-breaker and was able to set the morons in their place: kicked off the stage. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 25, 2010, 11:04 am

I can perfectly pinpoint it. The episode "Best Day Ever" After that, Spongebob became this overly excited sponge and his voice got more high and whiny. It got really annoying to watch. -- Submitted By: (Rape_Factory) on April 25, 2010, 1:24 am

Futurama never boned, IMO - if anything, it was Fox that boned by putting Futurama in a time slot where it was bound to be preempted by a football game going into overtime or they just HAD to show the stupid game "highlights" reel for the 7,833,215th time. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on April 24, 2010, 10:28 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. On that standard, South Park still rocks! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on April 23, 2010, 7:33 am

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

Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson - TV Shows
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

Okay, so they apparently aren't smart enough to figure out how to operate the ship. Alright, they weren't the ones who were supposed to be sent to this ship, so I guess I can buy that they aren't smart enough. But when they use the communication stones that allow them to switch bodies with someone on Earth, do they switch with the smarter people that have vast quantities of experience in solving problems involving Ancient technology? No. They switch with people who are painfully unhelpful, and proceed to have sex with their significant others in someone else's body.

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

It didn't really remember the show being deboned. Maybe where Gerald had his voice changed due to puberty. At least they didn't change the actor, and the episode said that it was OK to change and still do the stuff you love (the singing).

I didn't mind Tori, Greg, Scotty, or Carrie being added onto the show. They were fun. I think where the show boned was when they started to do the TV or movie specials. They weren't really all that great and started to get gimmacky. Also when they started to post myths on the net. I was bad at the time because I didn't have the net. They should have shown the stuff they did for the net on the show. It was unfair. Also the explosions and destruction starting to get abit boring.

Daria - TV Shows
Yeah I think when Tom was added too. I think he was here from the beginning of the show, people would have gotten use to him and they wouldn't be as uncomfortable with a new person coming in (For example, like a peason who she hates but still hangs around or friends who have love interest in each other but don't push the curb). 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. When they declare their love for each other in the car and kissed was the boned the fish point -- Submitted By: (Ani) on April 17, 2010, 10:54 pm

I think when they moved to Sundays from Thursdays. I never really got back into that show after Fox moved the time shot. I think the crusher was the "Who Shot Mr. Burns" two-parters.
