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.

Blossom - TV Shows
This was an fairly inoffensive show, not very entertaining, not really interesting, but a reasonable 30 minutes to kill. Blossom was a likeable girl, but all the guys I knew were loving Six, and all the girls loved Joey. Blossom became a background character to many of us viewers. The dad was worthless, and the other brother had very little screen time. Nothing to see here, a show that had potential, but was overshadowed by dopey Joey. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 14, 2014, 12:46 am

Entertainment Tonight - TV Shows
This was THE entertainment news show back in the day. It was presented more like the evening news, but all about movies, celebs, music. I remember John Tesh and Mary Hart for the longest time. Then they had Leeza Gibbons. It was just fun, entertaining, informative show about the entertainment biz. Now it pretty much sucks mule. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 14, 2014, 12:41 am

Chicken Soup - TV Shows
I recall this show just a bit. It was hyped for a bit, and disappeared quickly, because no one likes Jackie Mason. This show was dull and wretched. Good Riddance to it's demise. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 14, 2014, 12:21 am

Big Bang Theory - TV Shows
I have seen a few episode of this show. It harks back to the days of old cheesy laugh-track comedies in the day. The catch here is that they are supposed to be smart and cool-nerdy, as opposed to low-brow laugh-track of say, Night Court. Some laughs, but nothing ground breaking. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 14, 2014, 12:14 am

According to Jim - TV Shows
Here is the epitome of all that is wrong with network sitcom tv. Lazy, uninteresting, writing backed with by-the-numbers storylines and acting, makes for safe, spoon-fed "entertainment" for the brain-dead masses. I thought this tripe died off with the likes of Home Improvement and it's ilk. If not, it should have. Not even good for comfort TV, it is just too lame, too unfunny, without a hint of innovation. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 14, 2014, 12:03 am

Tosh.0 - TV Shows
I can see why this show is so popular. Because it was created for the lowest common denominator of our society. A once-somewhat funny and talented comic now reduced to making cheesy one-liners to ridiculous often disgusting and grotesque internet videos. High value and high quality entertainment, like Funniest Home Videos for the slacker generation. It's like watching You Tube videos for half and hour without the "witty" Tosh commentary. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 13, 2014, 11:57 pm

Manimal - TV Shows
This show was the bomb, yo! It was like little movie time for the small screen. Awesome effects (for tv at that time) and interesting story lines. All the kids at the elementary school were always talking about how cool it was. Unfortunately, my mom saw one episode and said it was too grown up and gross and I could not watch it. Hence, the series was quickly canceled without my seal of approval. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 13, 2014, 11:51 pm

That '80s Show - TV Shows
This was one of the best, most underrated shows ever produced. After the success of That '70s Show, of course the network had to come up with something to ape that show's success. They came up with the next respective decade, and you could tell a lot of thought and detail went into creating That '80s Show. It was filled with great comedy and high quality acting. The sets were great and the writing was spot-on! It soon became funnier and better than That '70s Show, and went on to win several Emmys. Unfortunately, Ashton Kutcher was dating the head of Fox at the time, and he did not like this show out-shining his show, so he had his lover axe it, and alas, there was no more 80s Show, and the world erupted into chaos. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 13, 2014, 11:47 pm

Gilmore Girls - TV Shows
This show was boring! Pure chick-flick garbage. I cannot recall anyone who enjoyed this show. Perhaps one of the greatest abominations to ever grace the small screen.

Mad About You - TV Shows
It's hard to believe this dull show lasted as long as it did. From the annoying opening song, to the contrived endings in the bedroom, this show was painful to watch. Helen Hunt's career was blooming during this show, while Burke's was heading into the toilet. Paul Riser had some success early (Diner, Beverly Hills Cop, etc), but almost vanished after this terrible sit com finished it's dreary run. Now Helen has disappeared. It's the curse of Mad About You. A vortex of soul sucking. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on June 13, 2014, 11:22 pm

I loved this show because: 1. It showed space like it really is, EMPTY! I mean the ship traveled for 30,000 years without meeting another ship, not like Star Trek and the like who bump into aliens every 3 seconds! 2. It showed what humans are really like, decent, scared, and lonely. and 3. It had weird British humor! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 12:33 pm

Swamp People - TV Shows
From what I can tell after watching an episode (sixty minutes of my life I'll never get back), this is a show about toothless in-bred idiots who think it's fun to kill things. Or did I miss something? To each his own, I know the show has a lot of fans. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 12:23 pm

My Name is Earl - TV Shows
I loved this show! Say what you will about ignorant unwashed white trash trailer rats, but Earl and his crew were downright funny. I also thought it was sweet the way Earl looked after his kid brother who was obviously "a little slow" and incapable of caring for himself. I also liked the way he still cared for his ex-wife although she was a scheming manipulative scum bucket thief and whore. Jason Lee and Jaimie Pressly were hysterical together. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 12:14 pm

House - TV Shows
I miss House! He was such a witty guy and was never afraid to unleash his snark on brain dead idiots who crossed his path. My favorite was from an episode where House was forced to do his hated clinic hours. A college kid was his patient and he was obviously too embarrassed to tell House what the problem was, he finally blurted out that he had something stuck in his rectum. Highly amused, House pulled out an MP3 player and said, "Are you just a really big music fan or is it the long cylindrical shape that appealed to you?" I fell off the couch laughing. Bye Dr. House, may your snark go on forever! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 12:02 pm

Two and a Half Men - TV Shows
I heard they are giving up and are only doing one more season, thank god! It used to be 'don't miss' TV for me but if I miss it now, no big deal. The Ashton Kutcher episodes I have seen were awful and filthy. When Charlie was around the sexual situations were funny and classy, now it seems the show is just one big dirty joke. A recent episode revolved around Alan getting a tick on his junk and he went around making everyone look at his swollen balls, it was repulsive. They should have stopped making these when Jake hit 16, it would have been remembered as a classy, funny show but now it's legacy is one of vile toilet humor and raunchy jokes. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 11:50 am

Frank is awesome! Mike is annoying sometimes but he comes off as being pretty sincere about his work and he no doubt is a smart guy to build such a successful business.

Adventures of Pete & Pete, The - TV Shows
Seriously weird show, but I loved it! Big Pete was so dense sometimes you wanted to slap him but then he would turn around and say something so unbelievably sensitive you wanted to hug him. I remember one episode where the Petes were fighting and screaming horrible things at each other and Big Pete realized it was up to him to stop it because his brother was too young to understand. Right in the middle of a vicious hurtful rant by Little Pete, Big Pete looks him dead in the eye and says, "I love you." It stopped Little Pete cold and he realized he loved his brother, too. Good stuff, it died too young. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 10:56 am

Breaking Bad - TV Shows
Awesome, amazing, wonderful show! To the guy who hates it without ever seeing it, that's cool, to each his own. But I think it's the fact that he refused to watch even 2 minutes of it that it makes his comments idiotic. Anyway, Walter White is the best anti-hero to ever be on TV. Bryan Cranston's transformation from a sweet family man to a monster is truly amazing and he deserved every award he got for it and more but it was an AMAZING ensemble cast! Jesse, Hank, Gus, Saul, Skylar, Mike, all incredible and performed brilliantly! I think 100 years from now people will still watch it, long after Modern Family and Glee are long forgotten. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 10:44 am

Malcolm in the Middle - TV Shows
I think it stayed on the air for too long like a lot of people said. It was funny and cute when Malcolm and Reese acted like idiots when they were 11 and 12 but not so much when they were 18 and 19. The character of Malcolm became a complete waste of skin and the biggest a-hole on TV. I actually heard a story on NPR and they actually referred to Malcolm in the Middle as "Bryan Cranston's sit-com before Breaking Bad. LOL! Take that, Frankie Muniz! By the Way Hal and Lois were the best part parts of the show. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 10:32 am

Modern Family - TV Shows
Let me say this is a funny and clever show and I never miss an episode. BUT I have to agree with the anti-Manny club here, I can't stand him! He's smug, spoiled, obnoxious, and if he was a real kid he would get the snot beaten out of him in school every single day until he wised up. That would be wrong of course but it would totally happen. Sophia Vergara is amazing, truly amazing! I'm sorry they got rid of Dylan, he was very funny as the dumb-ass clueless older teen. We used to say in our house that Dylan was an older version of Luke. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 10:19 am

New Adventures of Old Christine, The - TV Shows
Yeah the brother Matthew and Christine's ex, played by Agent Coulson from SHIELD, are the best things about this show. Christine was absolutely awful. I usually like Julia but I hated this character. I know it's wrong to hate on a child but the kid who played her son was so bad I turned off the show if he had more than a few lines. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 10:08 am

Parker Lewis Can't Lose - TV Shows
My crazy mom gave me the boxed set of DVDs for Christmas. I really love it. It's hip, funny, and sweet without being lame and I agree Rob Bowman is one of the best TV directors ever. Parker and Mikey were very bromantic, lol! Maybe if it were being made today they would experiment some but back in the 90's it probably wouldn't get past the network censors. The story lines are classics and hold up very well, all about being scared and lonely, trying to fit in and realizing who your friends really are. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 9:58 am

Eerie, Indiana - TV Shows
Good show and it has become a cult classic mainly because it only lasted 19 episodes and never, ever boned or jumped. It was supposed to be a throw-away Saturday morning kid's show but the writers and directors (Jose Rivera, Joe Dante and Bob Baliban)turned it into a vehicle for amazing story telling. Each and every episode was brilliantly written, directed and acted. The cast included John Astin, Tobey Maguire, Ray Walston, Stephen Root, Matt Frewer, Rene Auberjonois and Claude Aikens, some kiddie show, huh? Omri Katz, Justin Shenkarow, and Jason Marsden were so good as the main characters of Marshall, Simon, and Dash. It's on most of the streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, seriously, go watch it! Check out this story I found on fanfiction.com, it's really good and captures the heart and soul of Eerie, Indiana: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10174455/1/Friends-and-Family -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 9:44 am

Vikings - TV Shows
Love this show! Love it! Ragnar is over-the-top awesome even if he tends to be a little on the murdery side, lol! Life back in the 9th Century was tough, peeps, and guys like Ragnar and his crew did what they had to do to make a living. Sure, they raided and killed but they were stuck in frigid, barren, rocky, medieval Norway for god's sake. To their credit, they kept saying they wanted to colonize warmer lands and become farmers so they could stop all the looting and maiming but the snooty English didn't want them for neighbors. First rate show, beautifully filmed and acted, watch it! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 9:28 am

Why hasn't Child Protective Services taken those kids away? Or is this show just more staged "reality" crap from Hollywood? Feeding a grossly overweight child caffeine loaded sugar water so she will act crazy for the camera is complete child abuse!

Marcus Welby, M.D. - TV Shows
My grandmom loved this show and asked me to watch an episode with her on DVD. Six hours later I was still watching, she finally made me go home, it's THAT good. I don't get why some people think it was stupid or not realistic. Doc Welby was the sweet old grandfather figure but he knew his stuff and would totally talk smack to you if you deserved it, he even punched out one guy he caught stealing drugs from his office. In that first binge watching I saw great stories about drug addiction, child abuse, illegal immigrants (and how they are exploited) and other really good ones. Brolin was awesome as the young bad-ass doc who rode a motorcycle and had the bedside manner and tact of a grisly bear, lol! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 9:11 am

Glee - TV Shows
Like a lot of people I watched an episode because I wanted to see the gay kid. Turns out he is the most annoying, stereo-typically offensive gay character ever on TV! The gays I know, both male and female are great, normal people busy with their lives. The kid on Glee is a super drama queen who is so full of himself he would jump over a dying friend in order to get to the mirror so he can kiss himself. Disgusting Hollywood garbage. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 8:54 am

Middle, The - TV Shows
I hated this show at first but gave it a chance and a couple of episodes later became a fan. It's not about the kids so much as it is about the parents dealing with them. I agree Neil Flynn and Pat Heaton are super together, very much an old married couple who love each other but seldom get mushy about it. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 8:42 am

Bates Motel - TV Shows
Wow, is this show kinky! Weird and disturbing doesn't even come close to describing it. Norman has a full on bone for his mom and likes to get cuddly with his brother when he isn't trying to murder him. So far the kid has killed his dad, his friend's dad, his teacher, and god knows who else. To see sweet young Freddie Highmore play a loony tunes sex-crazed serial killer is pretty disturbing. Just think, Charlie Bucket from Willie Wonka grew up to be Norman Bates! It really is a good show, Freddie is awesome and so are the people who play his mom and brother! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 8:37 am

This was one of those educational shows that people forced kids to watch because they were "good for them" rather than because it was anything that any sane person would expect a kid to watch without being terrified. My mother insisted that my son loved Crashbox and made sure that he never missed it when he was visiting her...Of course she didn't have to contend with the nightmares he had that "Mr. Jumbles", a character with a microphone for a face, caused him to have for several months.

Clutch Cargo - TV Shows
A truly bizarre cartoon utilizing "Synchro-Vox", a curious innovation wherein the lower areas of the characters' faces are left blank and the lips of a real person speaking the dialog are superimposed there. Rarely seen today (I recall it from nearly forty years ago when TBS ran it about 5AM). There was a sci-fi cartoon, "Space Angel", from the same era, which also utilized "Synchro-Vox". It either boned from the start or never did, but it is weird to watch. (There are some clips on youtube). -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 4:19 pm

Price Is Right, The - TV Shows
One thing I hate about this show is that it is so flagrantly about marketing, not the game. The announcer will spend just as much time describing a can of soup as a new car (and why always specify a "NEW" car? have they ever given away a used car?). But my major complaint is the inequity of the bidding - the last bidder has all the options. If they think everyone else has overbid, they just say "one dollar". And I despise those idiots who pay no attention to the bidding at all, they're mugging for the camera, waving at friends in the audience, etc., often with their back to the stage; when it's their turn, "oh! I'm sorry, what was the highest bid?" - "the highest bid is 22 million dollars" - "I bid 22 million and one, Drew!" They should give each contestant a keypad so they enter their bids simultaneously. (BTW, I assume we're discussing the current daytime show, not the much better prime time show hosted by Bill Cullen fifty years ago.) -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 3:56 pm

Frasier - TV Shows
This show lost its focus and went downhill rapidly once Niles was free to pursue Daphne. Much of the original humor derived from Niles unrequited love for Daphne, evident to everyone except her, and to the hilarious references to the always unseen Maris. In the span of just a few episodes they removed all of this. Then the writers, now completely bereft of creativity, resorted to that hoary old sitcom ploy of bringing in a baby; in this case unrealistically and against character having Roz get pregnant. Daphne also changed drastically during this time; gone was the cute, sweet young lady with the beautiful long hair, attractive dresses, and humorous sarcasm... replaced by a mean-spirited harridan wearing pants and short hair. To complete this trainwreck, they parade Daphne's relatives every other episode; these people were not characters but caricatures, so obnoxious and distasteful that any episode in which they appear is virtually unwatchable. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 2:51 pm

Battlestar Galactica 1978 - TV Shows
"Starring Lorne Greene", who got about ten seconds of air time per episode. Other sci-fi shows at least tried to make us feel they took place in a future place and time; Cattlecar Galactica looked like they grabbed a busload of people from the nearest disco and dropped them onto a sci-fi set. And, in a sci-fi program, a lead character named "Starbuck"? (were the writers enamored of "The Jetsons"?) I am a long time sci-fi fan, but could never even sit through one episode of this. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 2:34 pm

JJ Abrams makes a Star Trek movie. And the result is "Frat Boys in Space". Honestly, has anyone involved in these Abrams abominations ever even seen an episode of Star Trek? I have the impression Abrams was given a list of Star Trek nomenclature and character names then given carte blanche to make whatever movie he wanted using those. Bears no other relation to anything else in the accepted Star Trek canon. Abrams not only boned the fish but flushed it down the drain. The weakest episode of TOS is magnitudes better than this garbage. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 2:25 pm

Star Wars - Movie Series
Take your average Saturday morning cartoon, give it live action and an exorbitant budget, and you get this. Great special effects. But absolutely nothing else. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 2:17 pm

Dark Shadows - TV Shows
Combine one part classic vampire movie and one part typical soap opera, add cheesy production and unknown actors, place on prime time schedule twice a week, and you get this odious drivel. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 2:14 pm

Flash Gordon (2007) - TV Shows
Nothing in common with the traditional Flash Gordon but the name. A complete waste. -- Submitted By: () on May 29, 2014, 2:11 pm

Family Ties - TV Shows
I liked this show for about the first half of the first season, when it stuck to its original premise of a pair of middle aged ex-hippies now living a middle class existence with three varied children who did not share their ideals. But then it became "The Alex P. Keaton Show", everyone else was relegated to background status, and I stopped watching. -- Submitted By: () on May 29, 2014, 2:04 pm

Dora the Explorer - TV Shows
THAT'S what I did wrong that time I got robbed at gunpoint that time in Taco Bell. I forgot to yell "Swipers! NO swiping! Swipers not swinging that crowbar at me! Swipers no..." BLAM! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on May 22, 2014, 11:25 pm

Saturday Morning Cartoons - Random Topics
Brandon Tartikoff would've never dropped Saturday Morning animated programming had he chose not to leave NBC for Paramount in 1991. -- Submitted By: (JoseTwitterFan) on May 21, 2014, 3:09 pm

Mr. Belvedere - TV Shows
This was an average show at best. It was funny watching the butler and Bob go at it. My sister did not like this show. Said it was a lame copy of Growing Pains (mom, dad, older son, middle sister, younger boy) minus the butler. It sure disappeared without much fanfare. Poor Mr. Belvedere, I haven't seen play that bad since the days of Bob Uecker. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 21, 2014, 1:21 am

Naked Truth, The - TV Shows
I remember when this show first came out. It was pretty funny, and Tea Leoni was great- a sexy, physical comedienne with great timing. The cast was good, and the tabloid back drop had a lot of potential. Unfortunately it was not given time to develop, and the morons of ABC got rid of it. I thought a saving grace was upon me when NBC picked it up. Unfortunately, like they love to do, those clowns retooled the entire show, got rid of the biting satire, muzzled all the actors, and brought in Norm. The show seriously boned, and it was finally but out of it's misery. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 21, 2014, 12:43 am

Shake It Up - TV Shows
Gunther leaving and Tinka suddenly becoming best friends with Rocky and Cece was the boning moment for this show. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on May 20, 2014, 7:00 pm

Mythbusters - TV Shows
I liked this show when Scottie was on it. Man I had a serious crush on her. It was better before the build team got their own segments and Kari thought she was the best thing about the show. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 19, 2014, 11:17 pm

Jenny McCarthy - Celebrities
Un-freakin'-believable. Only recently does Jenny go around spouting "I wasn't anti-vaccine, I just wanted parents to ask the tough questions." Sure you did, Jenny...sure you did. Way to backpedal there, ya bubblehead. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 18, 2014, 3:42 am

Casey Kasem - Celebrities
As of May 12, 2014, Mr. Casey Kasem's whereabouts are unknown and even Mrs. Kasem's lawyer claims to have no idea except to say that Mrs. Kasem has had Mr. Kasem taken out of the US to an unknown foreign locale and she has the 'right' to do that despite Mr. Kasem's children [by his earlier union's] wanting to see that he's okay. The judge in this case has ordered Mr. Kasem to be found- and the scary thing is that the man's in his 80's has advanced Parksinson's Disease and can no longer talk so WHY has he been hidden from his children and possibly taken abroad [and how likely would that have been HIS idea]? I had nothing against Mrs. Jean Kasem and thought she was okay in 'The Tortellis' but for her to evidently do this to his family [hom no one has alleged were a danger to him] is rather appalling IMO.

Sam & Cat - TV Shows
This show was hexed right from the get go. Disappointing ratings have now been followed by the recent estrangement between Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande over Grande allegedly being paid more. Looks like this is only going one season. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on May 11, 2014, 7:48 pm

Sam & Cat - TV Shows
I have been watching this show for awhile now, and it is definately not a "kids show." There are adult references everywhere. I love it! -- Submitted By: () on May 10, 2014, 10:56 pm

Timon & Pumbaa - TV Shows
People have mentioned the change in tone. Part of this stems from the aforementioned change of writers and directors, but also from the fact that despite Nathan Lane's prominent mention in press materials at the time - I was writing for an animation trade mag, so I actually saw them - two other actors, Quinton Flynn and Kevin Schlon, shared the role of Timon with him, each interpreting the role a little bit differently. I do agree with the criticism that this was a blatant attempt to cash in on a hit, while "playing it safe" by keeping Simba off to the side. Apparently, Disney had wanted to try something like this since unsuccessfully trying to launch a series for Tito of Oliver & Company. And once they did this and got away with it...Well, do I have to go any further? -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on May 10, 2014, 8:24 am

30 Rock - TV Shows
This show is hilarious. I love when it pokes fun of politics. It is especially entertaining when left wings nuts say it makes too much fun of them, and when right wings nuts say it makes too much fun of them. Liz and Jack have a hilarious relationship, and the entire cast is spot-on. Put your politics away and get a sense of humor. ALL politicians are crooks. All of them. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 1:30 am

Last Man Standing - TV Shows
This show isn't still on the air is it? Truly lame. I have not been able to sit through an entire episode. I thought unfunny, stereotypical, forced laugh-track sitcoms were a thing of the past. This will probably be another According to Jim show, where it stays on the air for years, but you don't know anyone who has ever watched it. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 1:22 am

Equalizer, The - TV Shows
Why no comments on this show? This was an awesome show, and Edward Woodward was awesome as the former operative that helps people out of trouble. Not enough love for this cool show. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 1:12 am

Bobs Burgers - TV Shows
This looks like one of those shows when you take a glance at it, it looks like something too stupid to waste time on. The animation hurt my eyes the first time I saw this, and the voices made me cringe. But I took a chance on Netflix, and could not believe how funny this show is. It has surprisingly good chemistry, great comic timing, and a sincere level of detail I would have never guessed. That H. Jon is a truly talented voice actor. He's perfect as Bob. I am glad I took a chance on this bizarre little comedy, it really is far more clever and funny than a hundred MacFarlane animated shows. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 1:08 am

Perfect Strangers - TV Shows
I recall being sometimes amused by this show. Of course Balki was the centerpiece, though I quickly became annoyed by his never-wavering accent. Him or his dumb cousin Larry were always getting into some ridiculous mischief, and in the end they said their apologies, or Balki would tell some lame anecdote about his homeland and make things better. I can see why this is a mostly forgotten show. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 12:52 am

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - TV Shows
I love this show. Once again I was late to the party, so I did not start watching until the fifth season. I enjoyed it so much I bought all the DVDs back then. I still like this show, I just finished watching the entire run again just two days ago on amazon prime. Buffy is without a doubt one of TV's best characters ever. Her Willow and Xander had great chemistry, and Giles was great. I was never a fan of Cordelia, so I am glad she left. I did like Oz, and wish he lasted longer. Spike is also an integral character, richly developed over the years, absolutely necessary. I don't get why all the hate on poor Dawn. I thought she was beautiful. Probably unnecessary, but I liked how she always pushed Buffy's buttons. Overall one of the best shows ever. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 12:43 am

Growing Pains - TV Shows
This was a family favorite growing up. It was pretty good for the first few years. I thought Tracy Gold was a criminally underrated actress. She was really great. The parents had good chemistry, and even Mike was fun when he was up to his shenanigans. Ben was not a great actor, but he got better as time went by. It was fun when Boner and Eddie joined Mike for a little trouble-making. That Boner was a fun weirdo, rest his soul. The show definitely boned when Mike became a Jesus freak and the entire dynamic changed into forgettable fluff. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 12:26 am

My Two Dads - TV Shows
This is a fairly cheesy sitcom that I recall only because I had a crush on that Staci. I thought she was the highlight of the show. I did not care for her father Burke, he will always be a sleazebag after he tried to kill Ripley and Newt. The other father was supposed to be the cool father, but he was utterly forgettable. Overall an inoffensive, if boring show. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 12:15 am

Garfield (comic strip) - Random Topics
I think the old Garfield and Friends cartoon show is infinitely more entertaining than the strip itself. And I found out that Jim Davis no longer draws the actual strip now a days. I guess that explains why Garfield's most recent character design looks so bad. I guess it isn't because his feet are too big but because his body has gotten so small. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on May 6, 2014, 11:41 pm

Doobie Brothers, The - Music Groups
I meant to say why would the guys from What's Happening not like the doobies. I just realized I had one too many negative words in that sentence. Anyway, a lot of their songs were influenced by Motown. Another great rock band not in the rock hall. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on May 6, 2014, 11:25 pm
