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.

Jenny McCarthy - Celebrities
DolFan, I considered her to be in the same beauty league as Miss Grace Kelly only BEFORE I heard her open her sewer mouth- and it's been years since she's even superficially resembled the latter. Still, I agree that it's sad that it's not as much as a given for a surface beauty to be inwardly classy as it was in the past. I'll even go further and mention the stunning Carole Lombard who died after her plane crashed selling WWII war bonds but is sadly less remembered than her contemporary Jean Harlow. True, in her private life and offscreen Miss Lombard had a vocabulary that would have made even a contemporary stereotypical longshoreman blush. However; Miss Lombard had the class and intelligence to consider what was suitable vocabulary and subject matter for the occasion so that she would have been a welcome guest in any scout meeting or church committee- not just for her outward beauty! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 30, 2010, 11:54 am

Lindsay Lohan - Celebrities
DolFan, While I agree that Miss Lohan has become a totally annoying person whom it would be great to NEVER hear anything more about again- as a Christian, I cannot root for another person's death. Besides, don't think an OD death would put a stop to relentless bombardment by the media. Three words: Anna Nicole Smith. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 30, 2010, 11:41 am

Bowl Championship Series (BCS) - Random Topics
Know what the BCS reminds me of? The "in" crowd in high school. Why? Because they wouldn't let anyone in who wasn't already a member no matter what. Already you've got people arguing that Boise shouldn't be allowed to play for a title period and a one loss team from any of the BCS conferences should get in ahead of them instead, and these people are VEHEMNT about this. They;re more passionate about this then they are about REAL problems, like crime and hunger and disease and corruption!!! These people have the attitude of "screw all that other stuff, the REAL crime is Boise playing for the title!" It's literally insane. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on September 29, 2010, 8:33 pm

1990's - Random Topics
MCS, I disagree about when the 90s officially ended. Just like "the sixties" was really just '65-'69, the 90s were really just from '91 to '97. In '97 and '98 things started going downhill and then bottomed out in '99 when all of pop culture boned the fish. And who put divorce as a reason? The frequent divorce phenomenon actually started in the 80s. Half the kids I went to school with were from broken homes and I graduated high school in '91. I even remember the school counselor asking me if my parents were still together for graduation arrangements, that's how common divorce was even back then. And also, kids of the 90s never really got the chance to imitate the 60s because the baby boomers saw that my generation was the first one to really question authority since those days and because THEY were now in authority they did their best to stamp us out, including attaching the derisive and dismissive "Gen X" label to us--and then turning around and spoiling the generation right after us rotten!!! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on September 29, 2010, 8:07 pm

Firefly - TV Shows
Before the series even aired the buzz was that FOX already hated the show and wanted it dead. It was for that reason that I didn't watch it when it first aired; I wasn't going to invest in a show I knew was going to be canceled. FOX hated the pilot/first episode and refused to air it. I think they aired the remaining eps out of order, too. You can pull up the archived JTS and see people's reaction to what happened. Without the pilot to explain things, people were confused and people were complaining of things like "Too many characters, who are all these people." I finally watched it all when it came out on DVD. Watching it that way in the correct order, everything made perfect sense. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 28, 2010, 3:59 pm

Chase - TV Shows
Yet another entry in television's endless love affair with the cops. This time it's the U.S. Marshal service, the baddies are bad-as-can-be, and there's the usual rainbow coalition of crime fighters clutching their pistols in both hands in approved TV-cop fashion. But the pearl in this oyster is Kelli Giddish, who's 30 but looks and acts a little older here, and stars as U.S. Marshall Annie Frost. She hasn't had to show a lot of range so far, but she's been perfect in what they've given her -- she disappears into her role. If, like me, you've got a thing for dishwater blondes who look and sound like every truck-stop waitress in the Southwest before the Interstates came along, you'll want to keep an eye on Annie Frost... -- Submitted By: (JohnWest) on September 28, 2010, 10:31 am

Doonesbury - Random Topics
In my local newspaper, there are two political comics for the opinion page. Doonesbury, and Mallard Fillmore (since the "Republican" paper and "Democrat" paper merged to print one paper together instead of two seperate papers). In terms of sanity, Doonesbury far outdoes Fillmore (which seems to be nothing more than a comic to scare righties into thinking we are going to hell or some crap), so it has that going for it. That being said, I do not care much for the comic either, but at least it doesn't freak lefties out into thinking righties are taking this country straight to hell (short of the Bush bashing it did when he was in office). -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 27, 2010, 10:15 pm

I just finished watching this masterpiece of a show and the movie that tried to tie things up- I'm left wondering how did I miss this show when it came out, and how has it not been brought back in some form to some channel? It makes the monster of the week/Flash Gordon rape on the "SYFY" Network seem even more horrific in retrospect. This show has never boned, and will never bone- if you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and check it out. Pass the slaw to FOX for cancelling it and giving us Family guy and it's spinoffs instead- can't they clear a timeslot for great entertainment?

Kung Fu - TV Shows
Loved this show as a kid, and still do. At the time I was angry that Bruce Lee was passed over for a role that originated with him, not to mention his martial arts skills were light-years ahead of Carradine's. At the time. As an adult, while stationed at Clark AB in the Philippines I came to appreciate the acting abilities of the late David Carradine (thank God for reruns). Truthfully Carradine was as far above Bruce Lee as an actor as Lee was above Carradine as a martial artist. While he would outshine Carradine in the fight scenes, which were rather infrequent, Carradine would out-act him everywhere else. Bottom Line: I'm grateful that David Carradine got the part, we got a chance to see a terrific actor in yet another terrific role. RIP David!!! -- Submitted By: (Chuck) on September 25, 2010, 11:49 am

Unfunny show, and why in god's name Fey has become such a media darling escapes me. She made for one of the all-time worst periods for SNL ever (and considering how many bad periods SNL has gone through, that's quite an achievement), and her 'writing' here is no funnier than it was then. Mostly heavily watered-down redo's of Larry David material, skewed towards some pseudo-hipster demographic who think they're paragons of high-IQ because they 'get' a lot of lame jokes and references to pop culture tropes that were already stale when they'd originally been used back in the eighties. Baldwin's the *only* worthwhile thing about this heap, and even he's getting into a tired and rather unfunny rut these days. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 24, 2010, 5:24 pm

Diff'rent Strokes - TV Shows
This show was funy in its 1st several seasons. But later, it became less funny and tired after awhile. It got worse when Mr. Drummond (Conrad Bain) tied the knot to Maggie (1st played by the late Dixie Carter and later on Mary Ann Mobley). The show became less about Mr. D. and his kids (who later turned out to be crooks and drugheads in real life after DS ended). Then they pulled a Cousin Oliver and had that annyoing Sam in the mix. It hit a new HIGH-low when the show, which should've ended by S7 moved to ABC from NBC for its dreadful 8th season. The set was a cheapened and horribly hackneyed version of the NBC-era set,(thanks to NBC's refusal to let ABC use their set and theme song) and the updated theme song SUCKED! I mean it's one thing to update for the mid-80s but that updated theme song was not good. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on September 23, 2010, 10:39 pm

Power Rangers (original) - TV Shows
This is a tough one to call here. The Turbo series is what caused some declining of the original series (IMO). The plots were totally predictable. Why does every episode on the Turbo-series had the Rangers stopping and destroying some detonator the Turbo-series villain Divatox puts in? Then what was so bad was that they even had the galls to replace the whole cast about 2/5 or midway into the Turbo-season without real notice. But by the time Disney (which everytime they take something they inherit they destroy it further) took over, I was done caring because they took PR (which before Disney gained the rights to was already on declining budgets) to new HIGH-lows, thanks to badly recycled scripts from the FOX-eras. The only good Disney PR I actually got into was Dino Thunder (was it?), which was the one where Tommy serves as mentor to the new Rangers and even returned to Ranger form later that season and the one PR that had the episode featuring most to almost all of the Red Rangers past and present. Otherwise, the Disney-era PR didn't help revive my interest in PR too much. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on September 23, 2010, 10:25 pm

Pokemon - TV Shows
The 1st 5 years of Pokemon were worth watching, even though the boned back and forth throughout those 1st 5 years. In the 1st season, this show WAS and IS Pokemon! It had the right balance of comedy and adventure. But those later seasons, not as much. Misty, even though she was a tomboy, she was quite a babe. But after like 2003, when she left the series and brought in two annoying brats named May and Max, combined with the new, lamer Pokemon (with most of their names I can't even remember at all), I totally lost interest in Pokemon. And I do agree that TR's schtick does get annoying after awhile. And when I found that Cartoon Network bought this show and started carrying the new episodes, it did nothing to renew my interest in Pokemon, thanks to the brilliant decision on 4Kids part or whoever was the genius that thought it was brilliant to get rid of all of the original VA's that made Pokemon dun. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on September 23, 2010, 10:14 pm

When Newton Minnow referred to television as a "Vast Wasteland", this show would be the poster child. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on September 18, 2010, 9:16 am

kitchenbreak, I agree. It's something I think Paris Hilton discovered years back. You gotta act dumb if you want to get big. I bet ya most of these guys are brilliant, just they know that it wouldn't sell. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 18, 2010, 4:26 am

Walker, Texas Ranger - TV Shows
Yes, it was stupid, but I think it was one of those shows that it is so bad, that its good. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 18, 2010, 4:24 am

A complete religious nutbar. If this is the best Republicans can come up with, the USA is doomed. -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on September 17, 2010, 8:53 pm

Police Squad! (in color) - TV Shows
This show was so funny! It really goes to show that most television or hollywood types have no sense of humor. It is what comedy is trying so painfully to be nowadays. This and Green Acres are two of the best comedies ever. -- Submitted By: (ScottHochlander) on September 17, 2010, 2:21 pm

Walker, Texas Ranger - TV Shows
I love how this show is so freaking horrible! Its great to rip on while its on, and just when you thought you saw the worst one, an even worse one follows. Its also amazing that in almost every episode, the victim of the crime they are trying to solve is associated with one of the rangers or the d.a. in some way. Knowing Walker is hazardous to your health.I also have to dig the casting directors (probably Chuck or one of his other "talented" brothers) picks for the generic bad guys. There was a Christmas episode on once that I saw, though, that made the rest of the episodes look like runaway emmy winners. -- Submitted By: (ScottHochlander) on September 17, 2010, 1:55 pm

Monster Quest - TV Shows
The problem is, if they had REALLY found Bigfoot we'd know about it long before the stupid episode aired. So, what would be the point of the show them. By the time they aired it everyone would be "so over Bigfoot." -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 16, 2010, 5:55 pm

MacGyver - TV Shows
Really, how much hate must someone have in their heart for Dana Elcar, it's not as if he intentionally went blind to "spice up the show." That's like Blaming John Ritter being dead for his show going downhill. Sure it wouldn't be the same but you can't blame life on people. "Way to Die Ritter!" In fact, Dana Elcar is dead too, I was so hoping for a MacGyver reunion, oh well. Rest in Peace Jack Tripper and Pete Thornton. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 16, 2010, 5:43 pm

Oompa Loompa Doompadee Dorrible.... The version with Depp was totally horrible..... -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 16, 2010, 5:35 pm

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure - TV Shows
I assume this Bill & Ted is referring to the very short lived live action series since the animated version is covered already (although this show had the same name). How much can you really stretch a premise? I would think executives would let the good name of Bill & Ted rest in peace after the tragedy that was Bogus Journey but apparently the almighty dollar (or thoughts of them since this flopped) seems to overrule common sense. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 16, 2010, 5:27 pm

Mayberry RFD - TV Shows
I didn't think it was half bad. Quiet little sitcom, and Ken Berry's low-keyed Sam was a pleasant character. Obviously the series was never going to match the original Andy Griffith Show's iconic status but I think the producers did a creditable job of keeping the 'Mayberry' spirit going in the wake of Griffith's departure. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 16, 2010, 4:20 pm

Ernest movies - Movie Series
Didn't care for any of the films, but I thought the Green's Ice Cream comercials he did were forkin' hilarious; and that Saturday morning kid's tv show of his had some inspiredly lunatic moments. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 16, 2010, 4:01 pm

Tales of the Gold Monkey - TV Shows
Fun, decent little adventure show that should've lasted a bit longer than it did--and might've, if kiss-of-series-death Roddy McDowell hadn't been part of the cast. Never got why it was that *any* series Roddy landed a regular role in *always* eneded up with an early cancellation notice. He wasn't the most profound or mulitdimensional actor around, but he was always fun in the limited types of characterizations he did, and he certainly shouldn't have been the inevitable series albatross that he was. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 16, 2010, 3:56 pm

Webster - TV Shows
It used to be alternatively funny and sad the way the truth about Emmanuel Lewis was spun in the tabloids by his parents, who initially lied about his age, claiming he was much younger than he actually was so that they would not have to admit that he was in reality a midget; and then, when it became obvious they couldn't lie about his real age any longer, tried to claim that he was simply 'small for his age'. Of course, he's now a grown man of nearly forty years old, and it's obvious he is a midget, standing less than four feet tall. Why they didn't simply tell the truth about his condition in the first place is beyond me--a lot of the speculation about what was really up with him was certainly much weirder than the plain facts would have been! -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 16, 2010, 3:45 pm

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Movie Series
Dahl was one of the two writers on the 1971 movie's screenplay. Maybe he did hate how it turned out, but honestly I had never heard anyone complain about the original movie until Burton started talking about remaking it. Yes of course things were changed from the book, but name me one movie adaptation of a book that didn't change things? Even Burton added stuff about Willy Wonka's relationship with his dad. (Which he ripped off from his own Edward Scissorhands, complete with horror icon as "dad".) There are things I really like about Burton's version, but when it comes down to it, he miscast Willy Wonka, arguably the most important character. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 16, 2010, 1:55 pm

Private Benjamin - TV Shows
I actually liked this one but got disappointed when Sgt. Lewis was increasingly shown to be as incompetent as the higher-ups she was having to fight. I liked the idea of ONE person trying to organize a bunch of slackers and layabouts into trying to remotely follow protocol despite a lack of real support from their own higher-ups but then when they made Sgt. Lewis more of a dolt and even hinted at a possible fling with HER superior, it just didn't wash. Of course, the show was over even though the producers didn't want to admit it when Eileen Brennan got badly injured and unable to play Sgt. Lewis any more. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:45 pm

Ernest movies - Movie Series
Friedrich, I can't say I loved (or even liked) the movies but you might want to tell your Shakespearean friend that the late Jim Varney was ALSO a Shakespearean performer before he did this series and was far deeper than the series let on. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:35 pm

Paul McCartney - Celebrities
Ever see him perform live? No, this man is not 'past his prime'. He's a legend to many current performers, and he still kicks ass as a rocker. Too bad today's kiddies can't appreciate anything beyond the LadyGaga crap that passes for rock these days. And I can only imagine where most of the contemporary crop of musical 'artists' will be in 40 years time. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 15, 2010, 5:29 pm

Waiting For God - TV Shows
I liked Tom and Diana's carryings on keeping that nursing home rocking! It was good to see them prevail over the effecious Harvey Baines and his whiny assistant. Only problems where when they'd focus too much on Harvey or when Tom's trampy daughter-in-law would self-destruct bringing down whomever she could with her. Still, when the focus stayed on Tom and Diana and avoided the boring younger folks, it was hilarious! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:28 pm

Jenny McCarthy - Celebrities
I'll never forget my first impression of seeing her on MTV and thinking that with her looks, she was a young Grace Kelly reincarnated - until she opened her mouth and revelled in some of the tackiest, most juvenile crudity that would have put the Delta House to shame. As for the vaccine deal? I sympathize with her wanting to find answers re her son's autism and I think ALL parents SHOULD question every medicine their child is offered before the child takes it (as should all competent adults for themselves and any adults they may be caregiving for). However; I agree that it was a bit simplistic on her part to put the WHOLE blame on vaccines without considering other possible factors and it was somewhat sad that she seemed to tout herself as somewhat an expert despite having had no medical training or education. Oh, on a purely shallow note, it's interesting to consider that even in middle age Princess Grace remained a natural beauty to her tragic end while Miss McCarthy. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:21 pm

George Carlin - Celebrities
"Cranky old curmudgeon" my butt. He remained one of the sharpest, most acute, and most savagely witty commentators on the sorry-arsed state of the corporate-subsidized American government/Wall Street/right-wing loonytoon-ism complex that exists today. One of his last, most scathing routines ("They Don't Care About You") should be required viewing for every young person in the country. The man pulled no punches, and deserved to wear the mantle of the late, great Bill Hicks imo. It's too bad he passed when he did; we're living in times where we could use his brand of take-no-prisoners, knife edged wit more than ever. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 15, 2010, 5:09 pm

Fish - TV Shows
I liked Abe Vigoda and the late Florence Stanley as Detective Phil and Bernice Fish on "Barney Miller" but they somewhat ruined the characters by making them foster parents- especially since Fish never once seemed as though he'd EVER wanted to do that even after they got the troubled kids moved into their home. He seemed to just want a nice quiet retirement to himself but Bernice (and, for whatever reason, Barry Gordon's character) seemed intent on inflicting problems from the kids for him alone to solve. Why was this supposed to be funny again? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:58 pm

Dragnet - TV Shows
I agree,flech[what happened to ya?]! As much as I always liked watching detective shows to try to guess clues, this one simply was too boring to endure more than a few times. I mean, even Harry Morgan wasn't able to make HIS character tolerable- and that's saying something considering how he virtually had Colonel Potter do a 180 from the original concept! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:51 pm

Danny Thomas Show, The (Make Room For Daddy) - TV Shows
It was okay but I never got why after the previously widowed parents Danny and Kathy married each other, her daughter called him Daddy from Day One while his kids never stopped calling her Kathy (not Mom or any variation). I always thought that was rather lopsidedly disrepectful towards their new mother figure which even the Brady Bunch wouldn't have stood for. Of course, the later years with the showbiz (and singing) increasingly dominating the action- and one of the most awkward adolescences ever broadcast (Rusty's) made the show tough to watch towards the end (and I say this as someone who saw it on Nick at Nite back in the 80's NOT someone who'd followed it all 11 seasons when it was on). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:45 pm
