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.

Histeria! - TV Shows
As a history major during the time this show came out and looked forward to it since I was a fan of Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain. I thought the Histeria! would have the humor put into history in the classic Warner Bros style. Boy, was I wrong. WB totally flopped this one. It was not funny and not very informative. The characters seemed forced to be zany for zaniness sake without any context. Someone who is a big animation fan and knows inside stuff told me that some new executive took over WB cartoons and created this abombination basically running kids WB into the ground. I don't remember the name of this person but this is the person you should blame for this. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on March 12, 2010, 10:10 pm

Scrubs - TV Shows
The show was amazingly consistent throughout its run and they should have quit while they were ahead. While I think the show boned with Kim (because I just don't like Elizabeth Banks as an actress, at all) the re-start of the ninth season with the medical school and all just couldn't sustain. I watched a few of the first episodes and I thought, "This is actually starting stronger than where the very first season of Scrubs started." But it's devolved quickly and sadly, it's just treading water now. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on March 10, 2010, 11:26 pm

I watched it when it started and was bored as hell through the pilot. So I've missed the past couple seasons but started tuning in again because everyone around me who watches it loves it. It's pretty good. I think it's a lot more hit-and-miss and it makes me sad sometimes that it survived over Studio 60, but it's great to see Fey and Morgan on TV still and Baldwin is just great fun. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on March 10, 2010, 11:23 pm

What a great cast to assemble. It's GREAT to see O'Neill as a patriarch character again. He's one of the best of the show, followed by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his partner. Best gay couple on TV.

The show is emotional and comical, and one of my favorite new comedies, as well as one of the best comedies on TV now. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on March 10, 2010, 11:22 pm

Countdown with Keith Olbermann - TV Shows
Keith could have been a great counterbalance to Fox News, however he resorts to hate-filled insults which have alienated people who he could have swayed to his side if he kept the vitriol to a minimum. Now his only viewers are his choir he preaches to. It wouldn't hurt if he put on guests with opposing views to state their case and have reasonable debate.

WordGirl - TV Shows
A typical episode of WordGirl.... [Narrator: Listen for the words "obnoxious" and "persistent". (Show begins) Narrator: Today, we find Becky and her brother T.J. at the Botsford house. (inside, they're arguing over a remote) T.J.: Becky, I want to watch my show! Becky: The characters are obnoxous! T.J.: Give me the remote! You're really persistent! (Dad comes in) Dad: Becky, T.J., that persistent arguing is getting obnoxious! (Later, one of the villains is causing trouble and Becky transforms into WordGirl and Bob turns into Captain Huggyface) Narrator: Oh, no! Persistently obnoxious villains are being persistently obnoxious!] ....You get the idea. Everyone keeps saying those two words until Wordgirl explains what they mean, which is usually at the end of the episode. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 9, 2010, 11:59 am

Sesame Street - TV Shows
It was only after Jim Henson and several other "original creators" of _Sesame Street_ died, that the show began a rapid decline. Too many talented performers, writers and producers vanishing at once...that was what _allowed_ Elmo to morph from a cute supporting character into an annoying diva. They _allowed_ the classic cartoons and songs to seem out of date, when the preschoolers hadn't complained about that for 25+ years. And those deaths _allowed_ new curriculum staff to swarm in, claiming that children weren't learning well enough from the format that had taught their parents about letters, numbers, and social life. Whether the Workshop didn't know or didn't care what all those deaths meant for their flagship show, is anyone's guess: if Jim Henson had gotten that pneumonia checked in time, chances are good that kids and adults could have still watched _Sesame Street_ together without the adults feeling embarrassed in the first 15 minutes. -- Submitted By: (ISNorden) on March 7, 2010, 9:25 pm

Total Request Live (TRL) - TV Shows
I remember when this show first started and they showed the top five requested videos in their entireties; at that time the Goo Goo Dolls song Iris was probably the most over-played song on the radio but it seemed OK for City of Angels was a hit at the box office and MTV hadn't yet realized that the best and easiest way to make loads of money was to promote the Backstreet Boys as much as humanly and when that happened each day was: "Here at number one are the Backstreet Boys with. . .". After that, it was all about who to promote 24-7 so MTV can get richer faster namely the teenpop goo. I'd stopped watching the show long before this happened, but had the misfortune of catching bits and pieces of some loser girl say: "I'm requesting NSYNC's song BYE BYE BYE because I told my ex-boyfriend bye bye bye! WHOO!" TRL is a fine example of how MTV doesn't give a (censored) about real music anymore; it's all about money. Why else do we never see fat and bald but smart-as-hell-when-it-comes-to-music Matt Pinfield anymore? Why else would MTV have spent 60 to 90 minutes on how Britney Spears is the First Lady of TRL?

Total Request Live (TRL) - TV Shows
I've just read that TRL is only live twice a week (M/W) and then tape a show afterwards. From what I've read, the video positions are the same from one day to the next. Um... as my posting below reveals, the music videos on TRL, just like on MTV are an afterthought. TRL just shows 5 second clips of videos these days and then cram as much MTV promos, celebs and artists who want to promote their latest work, and recap celebrity juiciness. All that is confirmed when I was sick from work a few weeks ago and ended up watching TRL. HEY MTV, WANNA KNOW WHY YOUR RATINGS HAVE PLUNGED ON TRL, FORCING YOU TO DO TAPINGS? No, don't look to Carson Daly leaving the show. Blame it on MUSIC VIDEOS leaving the show. You see MTV, teenagers vote for music videos they want to SEE on the show - back when the show started, TRL actually played just about ALL the video. Hey MTV, when you only show 5 seconds of a video, there's a reason your audience will tune out and go online to sites that will show the WHOLE music video. Get a clue MTV! The less music videos you show on your network, the more people tune out. The same goes for TRL. Why bother voting when you can't see the video you voted for?

Total Request Live (TRL) - TV Shows
Once upon a time, TRL was a show that actually showed a FULL music video (or at least most of it). Then, hosts stepped in. Gradually, TRL became an infomercial about pop culture and less about the videos as sometimes, only a 5 second clip of a music video was shown. Wow, this sounds just like how MTV itself evolved. Someday, no videos will be shown and teenagers will still be voting!

Total Request Live (TRL) - TV Shows
TRL has gone too far now. A recent episode I just saw had special guest stars, Avenged Sevenfold. Their first two albums were great, but their third album is whats making them MTV stars right now. First their on Headbangers Ball, now TRL. These guys suck now. They say they love bands like Pantera, Megadeth, and earlier Metallica, and they play metal, but how can you be a metal band when you have pop punk vocals in the mix? Its bad enough that we have to deal with the likes of Limp Bizkit, N Sync, Nelly, Britney Spears, and 50 Cent, but now Avenged Sevenfold just got added to that list. TRL has now gotten beyond worse. Its hard to watch when you have a band that was once metalcore on there and is now a mainstream alternative-metal band. I'm so pissed that they have so many fans and are selling so many copies of their new album. Way to go MTV. You just made a good band go bad, just like you did with Metallica.

Wow is this supposed to be a music show? Seems more like one big long commercial and a place for plugging movies,events and crap. Nothing pisses me off more than this show and the whole MTV Network. It's bad enough TRL Is pretty much the only music show on mtv,but now they don't even play their videos ATLEAST half way like they did before,It's 20 seconds of a video then it's on to more guests,stupid questions with those guests,stupid games and pointless time with the "fans". Man i can't even enjoy a video anymore,I sware that the other day the Ludacris video "Number one spot" faded in and not 8 seconds later people started clapping and it got louder and louder and then screaming came about and it made it to 14 whole seconds (record time) and then bam! "That was Ludacris with number one spot,oh boy that's a great video"...no kidding,i wouldn't know. Someone needs to speak out loud on this,If you want music go to BET or MTV2,Because mtv isn't about music anymore and obviously MTV2 was made so they could get away with it.

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
OK everybody, here's the truth about The Simpsons from somebody who's been watching the show since Day 1 (and on Day 1, i was about the same age as Bart...not so much anymore...) The show jumped the shark the day Phil Hartman died. It was on its way down when that happened, but the last truly hilarious season was season 8. (Phil's last episode aired at the beginning of Season 9.) Seasons 3 through 8 are what that show is, was, and always will truly be about. I remember crying from laughing so hard every week that those episodes aired in the mid- to late-1990s. Nothing on TV at the time even came close, and no show since has made me laugh so much within every episode of every season so consistently. That said, the show began to go slightly downhill by Seasons 7 and 8, and markedly by Seasons 9 and 10, but leveled off at some point around Seasons 10 and 11. People will leave comments saying that such-and-such season is the worst ever, but the truth is, it hasn't gotten much worse (or better) since season 10 or 11. In nearly every episode, there will be at least 2 or 3 genuine laughs that will hold up upon repeat viewing. And within every season, there will be 3 or 4 episodes that are downright hilarious...as well as 2 or 3 that just make you want to cringe. (The all-musical episode, The Simpsons Bible Stories, the N-Sync episode, etc. etc.) But remember: for a show that's been on the air for nearly 20 years, they had a good 8 year run, which was subsequently followed by a decent 11+ year run that has kept them within the funniest 5 or so American TV shows on the air at any given time. Sure, we all know how every episode is going to turn out, but we've known it for some time. It's still better than most shows, but nowhere near its height. But at its height, it was simply the funniest TV show ever to air--and every other cartoon show (and non-laugh-track live-action show, for that matter) owes The Simpsons its livelihood. To put it another way, The Simpsons stole every comedy idea to ever come across a TV screen that came before it, and made it their own by adding more. And every show that has come after The Simpsons has borrowed from those Simpsons-skewed ideas. It has proven to be the most influential comedy show to ever air on American TV.

Last Season (18) was without a doubt the worst season of the Simpsons ever. However, now at season 19, only three episode have premiered (forth premiering in only 2 hours) they have far surpassed the quality of that awful season. From what I can tell, only one of the three writers of those episodes worked on the show last season, so there is new blood. That means no more of the crap from last year. Time to look to the future. We don't want another season 18, 19 is better already.

I think the three hundredth episode jumped the shark. Maybe it was a little bit before that, but I remember the 300th episode being super-hyped, and I didn't like it as much as the reruns they played on WB. And after that, they just weren't that funny.

Lost - TV Shows
It jumped when the Others had Jack, Kate, Sawyer and Locke surrounded...and let them go. And then a few episodes later concocted a very elaborate scheme involving Michael killing Ana Lucia and Libby so as to lure Jack, Kate, and Sawyer into their clutches. But as I said, they had them surrounded a few episodes ago, why not take them then? Also, why didn't Ben just ASK Jack to perform the surgery when they first landed? He probably would have said yes. And finally, I love how the Others kept saying "we're not murderers", but Ethan killed the guy on the beach and nearly killed Charlie. And Goodwin killed a bunch of people, too. Got lame after the 1st season ended. Oct 8, 2007 6:19 PM Anonymouseee This comment was taken from www.jumpedtheshark.com -- Submitted By: (jumpedthesharkcommenttaker) on March 6, 2010, 5:20 pm

Lost - TV Shows
Too many annoying characters getting too much air time. And also the story just got more and more unbelievable and cliched. It's truly tragic that a show with such great potential really went downhill so much that they aren't considered for the Emmy anymore after the first season. Second season was a real disaster. The story moves along at a snails pace while at the same time they introduce new mysteries instead of answering old ones in every episode. The final episode will be a real bummer because it will all be a dream or involve drugs or something like that.

Agreed. I like this show, yet I can't watch it past season five, which I believe was the last good season. In season six I just got really stupid with DJ dating that fat deadbeat, and all the focus being shifted on Michelle being a spoiled brat (You can't watch it for five minutes without wanting to reach into the TV and backhand her), and the plots became really cheesy and unbelievable. (The Disney crossover episode was the worst). Then by season 8, it was a mess. What is weird though is as the show got crappier, the ratings went higher.

Sapphire & Steel - TV Shows
Never really 'boned the fish.' Very low budget attempt of the UK's ITV to rival time travel drama of Doctor Who, but even the Doctor was suffering from special effects during the early 1980s too. Some of the stories dragged on for ever - the soldier on the train station. And one wonders what Steel actually does apart from order Sapphire around! That said, the episode where victims are 'trapped in photographs' was extremely creative, and the one with the imaginary rooftop building. The cliffhanger ending in the petrol station also rounded off a series that posed more questions than answers. Great TV. -- Submitted By: (ivortheengine) on March 6, 2010, 1:22 pm

I genuinely like this show. However, it should be noted that the reason why the producers eventually revealed the killer was because the show generally was about the musings of the townspeople, and the murder was just a subplot.

My favorite moments from Carol Burnett & Friends were the unscripted moments where Harvey Korman would get so cracked up at Tim Conway that he couldn't continue his lines and so Tim Conway would just obviously fill the void with improv- meanwhile everybody is now on the verge of completely losing it- the audience knows it and they're laughing right along as TC just keeps plugging away.... Classic stuff. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 3, 2010, 2:52 pm

Brady Bunch Hour, The - TV Shows
According to Barry Williams book 'Growing Up Brady: I was a Teenaged Greg', this was the ONLY iteration of 'The Brady Bunch' that Robert Reed was actually jazzed about doing. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 3, 2010, 2:45 pm

My Hero - TV Shows
As for the question as to why O'Hanlon was replaced- an article on the subject I read a couple of years ago mentioned that it was O'Hanlon's decision to leave the show. Not sure why. I don't recall the article going into all that. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 3, 2010, 2:05 pm

My Hero - TV Shows
Not to knock the talent of James Dreyfus, but this show was great until Ardal O'Hanlon left. The 'canon' explanation for the different appearance was acceptable but the chemistry between between the characters just wasn't quite there. Switching gears, has anyone ever noticed how similar in some respects this show was to 'Mork & Mindy'? > Wacky male alien comes to Earth > Alien falls for Earth woman and begins 'shacking up' with her > Alien has a contentious relationship with Earth woman's Parent(s) > Local Crazy Guy who knows Alien's identity but no one believes him because he's crazy > Wacky older lady > Earth woman and Alien have offspring (who are just as strange as their Alien father) I'm sure there are more similarities, but I suppose there were enough differences to make 'My Hero' a unique slant on the story. Regardless, I enjoyed My Hero during it's O'Hanlon years. After that, it 'boned.' -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 3, 2010, 2:02 pm

Raising the Bar - TV Shows
Looks like TNT also decided to move on. After two seasons and 25 episodes, TNT declined to renew Raising the Bar for a third season. After four months of airing no new episodes at all, TNT aired the last three episodes of the second season in a mini-marathon on Christmas Eve night, 2009. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on March 3, 2010, 1:40 pm

Bradys, The - TV Shows
This was doomed from the beginning. for several reasons: Take a beloved sit-com family from the 1970's and try to reinvent the show as a grown-up early '90s family drama. It just didn't (and couldn't) work. People just won't buy it. Come on, Marcia as an alcoholic? Bobby as a paraplegic? Sure, I realize that bad things happen to people in real life, but in many ways (for me at least) the Brady Bunch was not about real life. It was goofy fun with maybe a glimmer of realism. Also, the cast on this thing was too freaking huge. Too many characters to keep up with. BONE! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 3, 2010, 12:55 pm

Voyagers! - TV Shows
Never got a chance to bone! The show had its weak point (they are wearing the same clothes at the beginning of each episode, can speak with everyone even in the old chine aso) and the view on history was very "american" (and sometimes plainly wrong), but it was a great concept and two really great actors. The omni is still the greatest time travel machine ever!And is there a better way to get children interested in history? -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 11:19 am

Never mind the stupid language, but the sun was really the icing on the cake. A real great idea to encourage children to look direktly into the sun.... -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 11:04 am

The white horse and some episodes (like the "christmas story") where a real boner, but fortunatly there was always the good after the bad...never boned! -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 10:55 am

Full House - TV Shows
I can't really pinpoint it, but the show got increasingly worse. It wasn't special from the verry beginning, but it got more and more riddiculus. Never mind what the children did, they alway got only a "talking to", but never really had to face the consequences (perhaps that's the reason they got more and more annoying). And why did Joey live in a corner of the livingroom and Jessie in a former children bedroom with rabbits on the wall, when there was so much atticspace left? -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 10:52 am

Fantasy Island - TV Shows
It got simply repetive...the fantasies where never what the other one expected, what one believed was a dream always turned out to be a nightmare, and if someone felt in love with a "fantasy character" it was always another guest in the end. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 10:47 am

Burn Notice - TV Shows
Booooooooring! Yes, the narration is the best part, but the punch lines are too weak to give the show some quality. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 10:45 am

Freaks and Geeks - TV Shows
Just nothing more than yet another show NBC axed that it shouldn't have. Imagine if they didn't axe, or screw around with half the shows that have been around since the peak of "Must See TV". They would be better off with their prime time line up. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 3, 2010, 12:39 am

FOX News - TV Shows
Chubby Rain, it was fairly conservative. We had plenty of liberal professors but overall the university was pretty conservative, at least when compared to most of them. There were a lot more Republicans making their voices heard than Democrats. However, none of it seemed to really rub off on me. ;) -- Submitted By: (MCS) on March 2, 2010, 5:34 pm

Freaks and Geeks - TV Shows
This show didn't get a chance to 'bone.' I never understood why this show didn't perform better in the ratings. Also, the fact that Linda Cardellini looked almost exactly like a girl I was just 'head-over-heels' for in high school helped. It was a funny show, but it was so real and pretty true to the era (circa 1979). -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 2, 2010, 5:04 pm

Gene Simmons Family Jewels - TV Shows
Nick Simmons is the worst- Sham on Gene for empowering this little rat-thief of a son. The Simmons boned from day one- thanks for the heads up on the BLEACH theft. Glad to see baby Nick is getting tarred and feathered all over!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on March 2, 2010, 4:47 pm

Upstairs, Downstairs - TV Shows
It worked best in the early years when it concentrated on the lives of the downstairs staff who knew every single trick and nuance of their upstairs employers(e.g. discovering Lady Marjorie's affair having seen her burn a letter in the fireplace- knowing that she NEVER lit the fireplace herself) whilst the upstair employers themselves were completely oblivious to their servants' often troubled and chaotic lives as long as the household functions went smoothly. Jean Marsh (whose ex was the 3rd Doctor Who) created,wrote,produced and starred in this yet would go on to be a supporting player in the forgettable TV version of "9 to 5"- yet claimed to have actually been paid MORE as a supporting actress in a fluffy US sitcom than she'd been paid for ALL she did for this groundbreaking British dramatic series! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 2, 2010, 11:32 am

Dukes of Hazzard, The - TV Shows
DolFan, Coy and Vance were cousins to each other but brothers to Bo and Luke, respectively but I couldn't tell you which of them went with which True Duke because they weren't bothering to remember. An interesting footnote to all this is the fact that for all its carchases and hokum, the "Dukes" did somewhat capture a little-known part of Southern US history in that many a 'good ole boy' moonshiner revved up their cars and trucks just so they COULD gallavant up and down those very steep hills to literally stay ahead of the law! Some of them saw the looky loos watching the chases and got the idea that they could make money off of CHARGING folks to watch so, yep, the NASCAR races among others evolved from this! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 2, 2010, 11:21 am

Roots (TV miniseries) - TV Shows
It was amazing to watch. However; Alex Haley's own life depiction was quite bland compared to that of his ancestors and other characters- until the last part in which he became motivated to seek out documentation of his family's verbal history! Still, the series DID motivate many folks of all ethnicities to take an interest in their ancestry so that in itself shows it never boned! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 2, 2010, 11:10 am

FOX News - TV Shows
MCS- I cannot imagine what you are talking about- a conservative staff at a University?! We just had a school board election in 2008 or so that the liberal education wonks that work at the university (Penn State) were the folks that were the incumbents. Of course they wanted to spend an incredible amount of money and raise all of our taxes becaause they couldnt imagine any other way to get the job done. Needless to say they lost like 80%-20%. Here is the kicker, they actually ran an article in the paper from these pinheads saying how the local populace was too stupid to understand that they were doing the best thing and that the election didnt make sense. And when you saw these characters- wow what a bunch of liberal former hippy professors (Brewmaster, Im thinking of you!). Penn State leans super super liberal, I have some friends that work there that are conservative and part of the act is you ahve to clam up to be part of the system, it's a real hoot. I cannot imagine a "conservative" university. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on March 2, 2010, 5:28 am

I think that is ESPN covering its ass more than anything. If they let that go, and Storm left ESPN, and "claimed" that was one of the many reasons that she left, it would open them up to sexual harassment lawsuits and such. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 2, 2010, 12:52 am

People's Court, The - TV Shows
I haven't seen this show in years but when I did Christina Milian was a MILF. I certainly wouldn't have minded boning *her* fish ;-) But even that couldn't distract me from seeing she was just a lame Judge Judy wannabe in how she yelled at people for no reason. I guess that's why I stopped watching. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on March 1, 2010, 8:06 pm

Come on people, no comments about Kornheiser's suspension for saying what we were all thinking about Hannah Storm's "look at me, I'm a slut!" outfit? The funny thing is, I hadn't even given Hannah Storm a second thought for at least the last ten years before this, and now all of a sudden she's some sacred cow who's above being mocked???

Futurama was great. It was a nice show that mixed sci-fi with sitcom and the characters were all likeable. Then it was cancelled. The newer episodes aren't as impressive as the old ones. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 1, 2010, 12:59 pm

Gidget - TV Shows
Actually, this was at times a little deeper than one would expect from the premise- with such issues as Gidget's mother having died a year before the show, her older sister and brother-in-law sometimes trying to overrule their father re raising Gidget and her staying friends with the intellectual, sun-allergic nerdy girl named Larue in spite of her own newfound popularity as a surfer chick! If one actually watches the show instead of dismissing it as pure fluff, one gets the sense of characters that were more multi-dimensional than expected and that Sally Field was already cutting her dramatic acting teeth even if those dramatic moments were often sandwiched between lengthy periods of sitcom fluff. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 1, 2010, 11:46 am

The worst-the absolute worst episode of Futurama is far superior the the BEST show of Family Guy. -- Submitted By: (syzygy) on February 28, 2010, 4:20 pm
