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.

When Martin informs Cliff, whom he barely knows on the episode in question, that Denise was a virgin on their wedding night. Not only was this juicy bit of information none of Cliff's business and, let's face it, unbelievable considering Denise's partying ways at Hillman, but if I were sponging off and trying to impress my brand new in-laws I think I would keep my big, fat trap shut about stuff like that. If I were Denise and found out that Martin had told my father I would have thrown his sorry ass along with his brat baby Olivia out on the street!! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 18, 2014, 6:08 pm

Later into the show, is it me or was everyone either paying tribute to a dead or near death jazz musician, wearing a turban and African jewelry, or otherwise highlighting something or someone as though every month were Black History Month? 20 minute long speeches by all 8 sets of grandparents about the Civil Rights movement during card games??? Granted, there is nothing wrong with a person expressing pride in their race, but I was more interested in the Cosbys and the comedy they provided the first couple of seasons, if I wanted. -- Submitted By: () on August 18, 2014, 6:06 pm

The moment this show JTS was the moment they put Raven-Symone on camera. It's extremely obvious that she was trained to act "cute" (as someone previously posted). I hated how she got so much air time on the show yet almost every time they showed her it had nothing to do with the storyline of the episode. They also gave a lot of air time to Cousin Pam (where in hell did she come from?) who's mere presence was aggravating an already bad situation. I mean seriously, they should have just renamed it "the Pam & Olivia Show" at that point. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 18, 2014, 5:56 pm

I can't believe I'm the first one to say this. Claire Huxtable was the most annoying t.v. character to EVER grace a program. She was always right about everything...even when she was wrong. This premise started out as cute when she and Bill got into disagreements, but quickly became annoying. She would just give him that "don't mess with me look" and it was all over. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 18, 2014, 5:53 pm

When I could no longer figure out who was living in the Huxtable house anymore. There were only 3 people that lived there consistently throughout the series: Cliff, Clair and Rudy. The last 3 seasons portrayed the Huxtable house as a literal revolving door with Martin, Denise, Olivia, Theo, Vanessa, Cousin Pam, Sondra, Elvin, Winnie and Nelson (and I'm sure I'm forgetting someone) all coming and going incessantly. How many bedrooms was this house supposed to have anyway??? No wonder Rudy seemed so pissed all the time!! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 18, 2014, 5:45 pm

Anyone ever notice that every piece of clothing Doug wears (other than his work uniform) is Nike. Always. Just look. He's wearing a Nike shirt, a Nike hat, Nike shorts, Nike shoes, etc, etc, etc. I'm surprised that there wasn't an episode with Doug walking around with a giant "swoosh" symbol on the side of his face.

Not to mention the judges literally scolding the girls for not having good will toward each other. Uhhh, they shouldn't WANT their opponents to win or wish them "good luck" in finishing the competition. It was ridiculous for the judges to berate the contestants for not rooting for the other girls when they are supposed to be their to win. And don't get me started on how each season used to contain a certain type of girl to exploit (disabled girl, wrong side of the tracks girl, plus sized girl who NEVER wins, ghetto girl, racist white girl, one token Asian chick, ETC) LOL ANTM was a guilty pleasure though, but still, there's NO WAY people didn't notice these things if you've ever tuned in before -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 18, 2014, 10:54 am

Mr. & Mrs. Huxtable smugly bragged about how they were rich, beyond just well off, etc...but yet Cliff would complain anytime one of his kids asked for 25 cents.

At some point, later in the series, it seemed like Cliff and Clair seemed to barely notice who was living in (or even coming in and out of) their house at any given time. They were just strangely nonchalant about the parade of random people coming in at any given moment. "Who's this? Your new husband and new stepdaughter? Well gee, why don't you come stay with us?

The show jumped the shark when Bill Cosby began taking heat from the black community about being an "oreo". The show went from having white kids and friends over to the house, to bidding on exclusive African art. Soon, we were sent on a vapid ride through black-college land, and then there's Pam, whose jive-talking character was better suited for What's Happening than a show about upper class black families. You can also notice how the house changes, along with the kids' hair styles. Soon, Theo has lines shaved in his head, Vanessa had an enormous afro, and Denise looked like she came in from the Shaka-Zulu hunts. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 7:14 pm

What's with all of the incessant apple juice drinking on The Cosby Show? Did Cosby own stock in Treetop or something? I find it hard to believe that Cliff and Claire are so wholesome as to not drink any alcohol EVER. Only Vanessa expermiments with the wild side of booze and quickly learns her lesson of this evil. Also, the Cosby kids are all goody two shoes (unbelievable for the time and context) and never seriously consider, let alone take up, premarital sex (except for Pam but she was a non-Huxtable ghetto girl), smoking or any other "vice" that most teenagers and young adults consider.

The perfect Jumping point for the Fresh Prince of Bel Air is the hazing episode. You know the one, Will and Carlton both pledge the fraternity and Carlton is hazed for being too white.

Okay, when Family Matters first started there was Harriet, Carl, Mother Winslow, Laura, Judy, Eddie, Rachel and Richie and it was all good with the big happy family. Then Steve Urkel came and was a background and it was still good, then Waldo was added in Season 3 and all of the family was still there then ABC had Urkel take over the show. Then suddenly the madness begins Judy disappears without an explanation like she never existed, Rachel disappears without any explanation (while her son stayed), Mother Winslow got married and was phased out, we get introduced to Myra, Stefan and 3J. Richie was seen once in a while and he was finally gone, Waldo leaves for cooking school, then Harriet #1 leaves and besides most of the family disappearing the show lost it's plot with so much Urkel focus and the unrealistic inventions. So by the end of the series the original cast that is left are Carl, Laura, Eddie and Steve of course and the fake Harriet. That's it!

It was bad enough that Steve Urkel was the single most annoying person on the planet (I watched for several seasons in hopes of seeing a "Very Special" gun safety episode in which someone, preferably Carl, would blow the idiot's brains out), but then they make the nice sitcom an unrealistic piece of crap when Urkel starts inventing.

Steve's only hope is to become Bruce Lee and teleport himself through time to fight the pirate that Stephan has become.

One year, Judy was there, and so was Aunt Rachel. Next year, the cousin was over at the house, and Aunt Rachel didn't exist. Judy dissolved as well. My theory is she played Nintendo too much. You notice the year before she left she was not around much. The few times she was around, she mentioned she was going to play Nintendo after finishing homework.

My theory is that Happy Days and Family Matters is almost the same show. 1)Show centered around "typical" midwestern family with three kids. 2) Third child mysteriously disappeared. 3) Minor character added for flavor (Fonzie & Urkel) gradually take over the show 4) Overweight, blustery, but actually teddy bear father (Carl and Howard Cunningham)first can't stand then by the end defends minor character who took over the show. 5) Minor character develops "special powers" and becomes superhuman. 6) Warren Potsie Weber and Waldo Geraldo Faldo same character- well meaning but dumb friend -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:05 pm

Rachel, the sister, kept hanging out with Carl and the Harriet on their dates and Carl is getting upset because he thinks Rachel should get her own boyfriend. OK I guess... Then Episode 2: Urkel shows up...AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! The show had problems from the start. There was the mom, dad, three kids, sister, grandma, sister's baby, nerdy next door neighbor, boy's friend, girl's friend, nerdy next door neighbor's girlfriend, nerdy next door neighbor's other half.... it goes on. I like the grandma, and Rachel. Hell, I liked the family. Then one by one they died off. Judy left. Suddenly Richie could talk. The grandma became a background.

When Judy was still appearing in the opening credits but was no longer in the show... they didn't even bother to write her out....the family just went to Disney Land without even mentioning her. WTF? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 4:58 pm

NO ONE BE ALARMED when mysteriously Judy (the younger daughter) pops off the scene randomly without ANY explanation AT ALL!!!!! She just goes upstairs one day, never to be seen again! Did the writers think no one would notice? LOL -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 4:56 pm

Urkel's voice was well beyond any rational relationship to his age and appearance. Each person will have to use their own judgment but there is a certain twinge that ran up my back like a spider covered with static electricity when I heard Urkel speak in that high nasal twang and realized that any parent of a child that age still speaking in that disturbing voice would either take the kid to a doctor or bury him in the basement. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 4:54 pm

An early episode had someone at a penthouse party spike Urkel's punch and he got drunk and climbed onto the roof. Yeah, he got rescued but then things took a "serious" turn when Laura dissed the punch spikers by yelling "You think this was *funny*?"

Designing Women - TV Shows
Even though I really love this show and watch it on lifetime, I have only a few problems with it. I was very annoyed when every show turned into a pulpit for Julia Sugarbaker and her women's rights/southern hospitality rants. I also hated it when every word out of Anthony's mouth was "When I was in Prison..." or "I have this friend who I met in jail.." Those got tiring quick. And why was he the only man on the show? And didn't they all just realize that he was gay? Sure he dated a few women, but it was obvious. And one more thing before I go, when did these people ever work?? I'm just saying. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:43 pm

When all the Designing Women had men they'd all go on couple outings eg; the cabin, dinning out I believe they've even spent a Valentine's Day all together. Can't they all just get an individual life and stop co-existing/co-habitating with each other. It could've been an orgy if it weren't for television censorship. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:33 pm

Different World, A - TV Shows
"A Different World", towards the end of its run, was so heavy and deep into the Afro-Centrism philosophy that I fully expected Louis Farrakhan, of the Nation of Islam fame, to make a guest appearance on at least one episode and urge all people of color to renounce any ties they had remaining with the Caucasian race. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:22 pm

Season one she's a stuck up southern belle, complete with a low-self-esteem having sidekick. Great character. By the time she hooks up with Dwayne she's a farce. Smoky southern drawl morphs into a corny fake twang. Sidekick (Millie) disappears. Whitley goes from bourgie to brainless. Garbage. Jumped the Shark when Col. Taylor's half-German son showed up. Remember Terrence? Why was he on the show? What did he add? What episode involving Terrence would have been ANY different if he weren't there?

The whole show just started crumbling when Denise got her haircut. Before that, we had the happy little Huxtable family, getting into trouble all by themselves. It was fun. The minute that hair came off, all the horrible storylines and characters started filtering in; Olivia, Elvin, twins, singing to Grandma & Grandpa at least once a month, you name it. If you look back, you'll see, it was the hair that did it. Just like it's ruined so many other good shows. Haven't producers figured it out yet? Hairstyle changes are THE CURSE. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:17 pm

The show then took a dive when Denise suddenly came back from Africa with a husband and stepdaughter. "Who's this? Your new husband? And he has a daughter? Well, why don't we let her live here?" WHAT THE HELL? Another low; the second lip-synch. The first one was funny because it was new, but by the second time, not so much. Dad is a doctor, Mom is a lawyer, and yet the "gift" they keep giving is a song and dance. Another dip was the addition, in a relatively short span, it seemed to me, of any celebrity they could lay their hands on. Oh, and Grandpa is a jazz musician, too. "Yeah, he used to blow with Monk and Charlie Parker. Let me introduce you to my close personal friends in this super-tight jazz combo. You'll never see these people again." And didn't it turn out that Grandpa once dated Lena Horne or some such thing? -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:16 pm

One episode that irked me is where Cliff tried to show the 'clumsy white dude' how to toss a basketball. I mean, come on! Does your OBGYN invite you back to his place to shoot hoops 'cause you're uncoordinated? I don't think so. And the 'SD' pin was quite irritating. Uhh Cliff, did you have to make the thing the size of a pie plate? And wear it over everything from pajamas to your bath towel? Cripes! I'm probably leaving a lot out, but I guess the number one thing that bothered me about the Cosby Show was all the MUGGING. No, not as in robberies. As in facial contortions. Whether it was Cliff's stupid smirk on the opening credits (I wanted to punch him--especially in the one where he does the finger waving over the eyes bit), Claire's one-of-only-three possible expressions (smug, mad or fakely serene), or the cutesy kids attempting to tug at the heartstrings of the audience, the mugging drove me mental. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:12 pm

The stories revolving around Pam and her "after school special" problems and issues simply did not mesh well when juxtaposed against the squeaky clean Huxtables. Especially the first few episodes with Pam and that ongoing 2 part story about Pam wanting birth control pills. First of all, who IS Pam? I don't mean this literally, it is mentioned once that she is Clair's 4th cousin but that is exactly my point. She just shows up one day and suddenly this is Cousin Pam & Friends. Why is the audience supposed to suddenly care about somebody never mentioned or shown before to the point of devoting episodes exclusively to her? The character of Pam would have been much better suited as a separate, spin-off show. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:09 pm

The episode where the family attends the ceremonies honoring the new president of Hillman was one of the WORST episodes of Cosby ever. What was the point? More importantly, where was the comedy? If I WANT to be preached to, "inspired" or "motivated", I'll watch a PBS Documentary. This is the Cosby Show, not Frontline. Jesus. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:04 pm

OK, first of all, the oldest daughter Sondra came out of nowhere. Where was she anyway? Chillin with Amy Osborne I guess. She served absolutely no purpose other than to make the show mirror Cosby's real life by having five kids. And where was this girl from? Melissa Gilbert had more soul than she did. And Vanessa's gravity defying afro during the Alvin Ailey season. Claire finds a joint in Theo's school book and Theo says it's not his and they believe him. Yeah, right! And what's with Cliff offering to pay just about every person he comes in contact with college educations. He offers to pay for Sondra's Law school AND Elvin's med school education, when they decide to 'throw away their Princeton degrees' to go into business for themselves. And he talks about paying his wife's 4th cousin twice removed Pam's way through college. Yet when one of his kids asks for 50 cents, he's fucking Pa Walton! Apparently his budget only allowed for expensive extremely colorful Coogi sweaters and sending everyone and their mother to college and grad school. Theo goes from being an carefree slacker, to a responsible, pontificating genius in one season, and Denise goes from being a bright, focused, free spirit, to an incompetent airhead. And all of a sudden, after six seasons, Cliff decides that the show needs 'real' black kids, so suddenly Pam and her crew conveniently appear at the doorstep. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:01 pm

Cousin Pam, the Fresh Princess of Brooklyn. Just WHY was she there anyway? Her mother was still alive. Why would she palm off her adult daughter on relatives that she wasn't even that close to? Anyway, Pam was the ultimate shark jump on a show that had many smaller jumps over the course of its run. Do not watch the last season unless you want to be nauseated by Pam and her jive-talking boyfriend (who had me spitting nails every time he opened his mouth: "Well ya see, Mr. Huxtable, I'm gon' check out dis college just to see if it meet my high standards"), Pam and her caricature girlfriend who sounded like Minnie Mouse on helium, Olivia and Cliff in painful scenes that seemed to go on forever, and later, Winnie and Nelson in the same type of scenes. Kids do say the darndest things, especially when they've been coached. But that's another story, and another show. Much of the last season of TCS is indistinguishable from KSTDT. As TCS got more popular, you could see the progression of Cosby's ego in his acting. And once he got that Ed.D, he became Moses atop the mount on every talk show, dispensing his words of wisdom on everything from how to raise children to how other comics should perform. As Richard Pryor once advised him, "Have a Coke and a smile and shut the fuck up"! -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:57 pm

That Diego sure is a weird one, talking to animals the way he does. He needs to be locked up. And then there's the Christmas episode when Dora and Boots sneak out after her parents go to bed and walk to the North Pole. Great, it's always a good idea to subliminally teach kids they can leave the house and travel across the continent while their parents are sleeping! Also, there was actually an episode where Dora and company jump over a school of sharks. Coincidence? I think not! -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:40 pm

When Darlene left for college the show seemed to lose something special. Sara Gilbert's absence was too obvious from most episodes. I think it actually jumped somewhere before the lottery but the lottery was the final nail in the coffin. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:32 pm
