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.

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

Friday Night Videos - TV Shows
Friday Night Videos was a great alternative for those of us who didn't have MTV at the time (as well as Night Tracks on TBS) Every week they would have one video against another in a "video vote" They would show both videos back to back and viewers would call a 900 number (50 cents a vote) and vote for their favorite. They would throw in a "video classic" by The Who or Jimi Hendrix or the like every week. I remember seeing the debut of Michael Jackson's Thriller on Friday Night Videos FNV started to slide when celebrity hosts started promoting their latest movie or TV series instaed of showing videos. -- Submitted By: (diezman) on November 21, 2009, 6:49 pm

Don Kirshner's Rock Concert - TV Shows
Great show! Where else could you see great bands like Blue Oyster Cult, Cheap Trick, Black Sabbath, Heart and Peter Frampton every weekend. DKRC was staple viewing for those of us who were too far away from any concert venue to see these bands live. It was a way for us to see our favorite bands in a live setting. Sure, Don had the personality of a wet mop and the show kind of boned during the disco years (Don's Disco Dancers!) but overall it was a great show. -- Submitted By: (diezman) on November 21, 2009, 6:31 pm

Happy Days - TV Shows
Too many bones to count! Potsie singing like the whitest person in the world. Jenny Piccolo being a cast member instead of a person never seen. Fonzie getting soft and moral instead of being a hood. Changing the theme song from Rock Around The Clock to the terrible "Suday Monday Happy Days!" Studio audience. Changing the Cunninghams house around. Chachi!! The mystery of Chuck..ect. ect.. Happy Days was okay for the first couple of seasons then it turned into a regular Bone-o-Rama! -- Submitted By: (diezman) on November 21, 2009, 8:49 am

Dora the Explorer - TV Shows
The only redeeming quality of this show is that it teaches Spanish. I've found the rest of the show to be loud, annoying, and repetitive. The characters run around saying the same words and sentences OVER and OVER. Like the Map's song is literally him/it saying "I'm The Map!" 50 times. Lord knows why this show is so successful. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Bill) on November 20, 2009, 10:00 pm

Entertainment Tonight - TV Shows
Back in the day....when there was no 24/7 entertainment news, "ET" was the only source of what was going on in the world of celebrity and it was not so sensationalistic. Or maybe it was and we just didn't know any better. Now, it's just WAY over the top. I also wish Mary Hart would retire. Her perkiness is exhausting to watch. I'm beginning to feel like Kramer on "Seinfeld" and how he would have a seizure everytime she was on TV! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 20, 2009, 3:04 pm

Nickelodeon - TV Shows
BTF around the early-to-mid 2000's... About 2002-2006 was the slow decline. NICKELODEON- Started to decline when most of the old Nicktoon's and Live Action shows began to end, Doug, Rugrats (pre-Dil of course), Ren and Stimpy, Rocko, Hey Arnold, Invader Zim, Angry Beavers, Pete and Pete, Clarissa, Hey Dude, and so on... now I wouldn't have had a problem if these shows were replaced with equally GOOD shows, but they weren't. 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

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

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.

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.

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

Weather Channel, The - TV Shows
The Weather Channel boned the fish when they went down the "TV show" path circa 2000. Their early shows were "Atmospheres" and "Storm Stories". As time went on, it got worse and worse; more episodes and newer shows were showing up, and less emphasis was being placed on the weather! Around 2007 or so, Landmark (the old parent company) wanted to sell off TWC to NBC Universal probably because "it became too political", always talking about global warming, etc. I even remember on the old Scottish Site that "TWC was going to [go back to normal]!" I was excited at first, but was then none too excited a few months later! The Weather Channel is now "The News Channel"!!!!! Most of their stories are like watching the regular news, there are forecasts for all events (including Michael Jackson's memorial in LA!), and even a documentary on Death Valley had a "scary" content warning! What the heck! When Al Roker came to "The News Channel", he went from being the best meteorologist on TV to the worst meteorologist on TV!!!!! And thank goodness I haven't witnessed the movies being played on "The News and Movie Channel"!!!!! The only weather-related thing from NBC Uni now worth watching is KXAS 5-2, my over-the-air radar channel! That, and weather and traffic on 5-1. (Those youngens who live in the KXAS viewing area will probably know what I mean!!!!!)

Sledge Hammer! - TV Shows
This show was sarcastic from the beginning and got better and better and better each passing episode -- a rare feat. It even intentionally boned the fish with a nuclear explosion at the end of the next-to-last season ... with the final season taking place "five years before that nuclear explosion. Thank you." -- Submitted By: (creton4) on November 13, 2009, 8:39 pm

Incredible Hulk, The - TV Shows
I adore this show. I really do. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling whenever it comes on. I cheer when the Hulk knocks the buhjeezus out of some random thug, and whenever David Banner starts becoming the Hulk, I can't help but say "Oh crap, you've done made him mad!" or something equally sophmoric. But it needs to be said that the show comes from an era of TV that cherished the power of the gimmick -- and David Banner was the ultimate temp worker for that reason, which made for all kinds of Jump-the-Shark (er ... Bone-the-Fish) moments, especially toward the end. -- Submitted By: (creton4) on November 13, 2009, 8:25 pm

I've managed just fine without a plasma tv, granite countertops and double bathroom sinks but one would think these were as vital as air to some of these homeowners. To me an out-of-date kitchen would one that only had a woodburning stove and a hand pumped sink yet some folks react as though if the appliances are more than a year old, they might as well be the Flintstones' kitchen! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 13, 2009, 7:13 am

House Hunters - TV Shows
It's bad enough that this show always manages to find its way onto TV every single time I'm stuck visiting the in-laws. What takes the cake is how the haughtiness seemingly oozes from every pore of each prospective homebuyer, as if to say "Ah yes, looky looky at the kind of digs I can afford, ha HAAAA!" Each episode I have been force-fed is chock-full of "vomit in your mouth" moments such as one homebuyer entering the kitchen of a $1.6mil home with granite countertops and recessed lighting and sneering "oh THIS needs more updating," the couple who whine how "the theater room IS rather small," and the well-into-their-middle-aged couple, upon being told a $2.3mil home has three bedrooms, barking "WE'RE used to having something with FIVE bedrooms!" OMG, how will that couple EVER survive with only TWO more bedrooms than they would presumably use on a nightly basis? I guess the hired help would have to bunk up four to an extra bedroom rather than two. Sheesh! How the average Joe Schmoe TV viewer could possibly connect with anything about this barf-fest is perplexing to me. There is rarely anything endearing about the hoity-toity homebuyers, the realtors are your typical "phony as a $3 bill" lot, and the properties are opulent. There was one episode of a couple looking into homes in the mid to upper $200k range, but even THOSE were McMansions relative to their location. And I love the end of every episode when each property is reviewed, numbered 1 through 3 with a brief description of its biggest selling point, followed by the homebuyers stating "we chose" with a dramatic pause inserted before they reveal their choice. Where is the suspense when #1 is oceanfront property, #2 is on a private island, and #3 has indoor/outdoor Olympic-sized pools? UGH, kiss my grits, people! I know it wouldn't make for good TV, but I feel people could better relate to this show if it were a LITTLE more representative of the common man. From time to time, I would like to see them mix in something similar to what I had to choose from in my price range. My criteria are 3 bedrooms, a garage and a basement. Yeah I know, I'm SO persnickety! #1 is crime-ridden neighborhood, #2 is big-time fixer-upper, and #3 is LONG commute. We chose (insert dramatic pause) HA, you're just gonna have to wait for MY episode to air! ;-) -- Submitted By: (Nature_Boy) on November 13, 2009, 1:10 pm

Heroes - TV Shows
I wanted so badly to keep enjoying this series. The first season was, on the whole, absolutely amazing. Everything that a new show should be-- bright, full of promise and some very compelling storylines and characters. Then, things really started to descend into silliness, but I kept watching, occasionally seeing flashes of the old brilliance. I kept watching right up until the last season, when they actually came up with this ridiculous storyline where Sylar started morphing into his dead mother and having conversations with himself. It was at that point that I knew that things had just gotten completely absurd. I kept watching until the end of that season, but that was it. I keep hearing that supposedly things are getting better, but even those reports seem to be a mixed bag at best and the series is getting all-time lows in the ratings, so maybe there isn't much to those reports. If this show were on any other major network it would already be canceled, but thankfully for it (though not for us), it's on NBC. -- Submitted By: (Agent0042) on November 12, 2009, 5:51 pm

Family Affair (1966) - TV Shows
I know it was supposed to be a sitcom but it sure had many sad situations. Not just the fact that these three rich kids with an indulgent uncle and doting English butler were ORPHANS! One of the saddest ones had to do when they befriended this girl named Eve (played by a pre-Jan Brady Eve Plumb). Anyway, their new friend Eve was in such frail shape that she couldn't go to school with the others but had to just do her homework from her room and they feel sorry for her so they visit her. Eve cheers up and they decide to really make Eve's day by throwing her an early Christmas since Uncle Bill's going to be out of the country during that time. Eve has a wonderful time but right when it's over, Eve's mom tells Uncle Bill that all this newfound friendship's getting too much for Eve's frail heart (despite the Davises' intents)so she needs Uncle Bill to tell the kids to quit visiting Eve. The last scene of that show's the killer as Buffy's heard crying her eyes out because Eve's doomed and now can't even have any friends over while Uncle Bill's walking up to her bedroom door like he's ready to console Buffy about the situation. I've often wondered what he COULD say to cheer Buffy up! Man, that was sad! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 12, 2009, 4:55 pm

Smallville - TV Shows
I still love the show, but for me it had to be when "Jimmy" or should I say Henry Olsen was killed off end of last year. So for 3 years, yes 3 years, they lead us to believe this was Jimmy Olsen, Superman's Pal, etc. Now we find out that his middle name is Jimmy, has a younger brother with the first name Jimmy, and he chooses to go by the first name of his younger brother. Not saying that's totally unrealistic, but highly unlikely. Smallville needs to wrap up this year. With Lex Luther gone, at least for now, show isn't the same. Was great getting rid of Lana (at long last), but he's already working at the planet, has a relationship with Lois, has most of his powers, I think it's time he becomes Superman, unless they plan on waiting until the younger Jimmy is old enough. -- Submitted By: (Bob1980) on November 12, 2009, 2:14 pm

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - TV Shows
Actually I've just remembered what the final straw was for me. It was another one of those awful episodes after Buffy's resurrection (where she seems just really ridiculously bitter that her friends brought her back for the dead) that ends with everyone depressed and avoiding each other, which was bad enough, and then in a final twist we just see her making out with Spike out of the blue. Suddenly Buffy just wasn't the character she used to be, now she was someone who'd make out even with a psychotic vampire she was normally instinctively pledged to destroy and certainly never had no sexual feelings towards before. It was a degrading character assassination too far. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on November 12, 2009, 1:29 pm

I still can't believe it's not aired nationally anymore. Love it or hate it: this is an American institution!

House Of Mouse - TV Shows
It's a great concept...perhaps the best of the "new" children cartoons. But I can't help myself: Compared to the old "classic" Mickey and Donald cartoons, the new cartoons can't compare. The old ones often had a more subtle humor, because they used an usual situation and found the fun in it (like Donald being unable to sleep, or Micky having to fight a rival, or a simple travel with a camper). Today the whole setting is so overblown from the very beginning that you can hardly emphasis with the characters anymore. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on November 12, 2009, 6:07 am

Numb3rs - TV Shows
Mayby, but it isn't the math alone...I think, it got too focussed on the characters. Not that a little bit characterdevelopment is a bad thing, but at the beginning, it was mostly about Charlie and Don, with the occasional episode about the problems of the site characters. Now in one episode nearly each character and his problems get featured at last for a couple of minutes...considering that the show has a lot of site characters, this makes at least 25 minutes just for character development, sometimes even more....there isn't much time left for solving the case. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on November 12, 2009, 6:00 am

CSI Miami - TV Shows
Sometimes I watch CSI Miami, but mostly for laugh...the way, all the police man a strutting around in their designer clothes, the riddiculus way they sometimes find their suspect (concerning "the same clothes", I always thought it very funny that the suspects are always wearing the clothes and jewellery they had on them during their crime...one would think that they have at least another pair of shoes, especially the female ones), the fact that Carouso is personally driving to the other end of the town during a crisis, insteat of sending some policeman from the next station, the choppers, big weapons, big boats and everything elso which is overblown.... But the sad fact is that this pseudo scientific show in technicolour wasn't supposed to be funny, it is all unintentional...so yes, it boned from the very moment you could so the rainbow towers of miami.... -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on November 12, 2009, 5:54 am

CSI Miami - TV Shows
What I love about this show is how every crime gets solved in exactly one day, and everybody - suspects, witnesses, and all, are all wearing the same clothes throughout the whole episode. Most of the suspects are even wearing the same clothes as in their file photos. And the producers must really hate women, because it's always either a woman being killed, or a woman doing the killing, for some really petty reason. I will say I'm going to miss Delko; I guess he got shot in the head one too many times but of all the ridiculous characters he was the least annoying. I would have preferred they kill off Caleigh. -- Submitted By: (RobertM) on November 11, 2009, 11:02 pm

Numb3rs - TV Shows
I think they've drifted from the original concept - the math stuff is just kinda thrown in on the side, and isn't as central to solving the case. What's left is a basic action crime-drama, a step up from CSI:Miami. Maybe they're running out of original things to do with strictly "math" because Charlie seems to have gone from being a math genius to also being a chemist, physicist, and an engineer. Just throw in some knowledge of obscure dialects of native Pacific Islanders and he'll be approaching the Professor from Gilligan's Island. -- Submitted By: (RobertM) on November 11, 2009, 10:48 pm

Family Feud - TV Shows
Richard Dawson used to give the kids tootsie pops (probably to distract them while he slips their mom the tongue, LOL), would autograph the poster board that shows whatever dollar amount the winning family earned at the end of the show, and if a horrible answer was given he would often snicker (sometimes for a long time, even to the point of tears) and then say "Show us the DREADED !" It's little things like those which no subsequent host has come close to replicating, although John O'Hurley isn't too bad. -- Submitted By: (Nature_Boy) on November 11, 2009, 10:21 pm

Transformers, The - TV Shows
The movie did change everything. It takes the series 20 years in the future and kills off almost every transformer you see in the first two seasons. I know they want to introduce new characters to sell more toys and when I was a kid I was all for that. However, this doesn't mean they have to kill off the characters all the kids were used to. They's could've had a kid focus group and find out the least popular ones and have those killed instead. The cartoon can still have new and old transformers. The stupidest transformer ever, Kup, an old-time transformer who's brand new? Come on. Ironhide should've been in that role and Kup killed by Megatron. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on November 11, 2009, 9:27 pm
