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.

Full House - TV Shows
Someone (SSM, to be exact) mentioned a visit to the show by Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) of "Family Ties." That must have been like a member of Mensa stopping by for this group. Oh, have I mentioned that "Full House" was the worst show in television history and that I hated it with every fiber of my being? It was and I did. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on August 8, 2014, 10:11 pm

One Day at a Time - TV Shows
I think bringing on Howard Hesseman (late of "W-KRAP In Cincinnati") as Anne's love interest boned this shark. Never liked his Johnny Moonbeam character or him as an actor (remember "Head Of the Class"?), he added absolutely nothing to the series, so this was simply the kiss of death to an already terminal show. I do admit, however, that during the show's second season, I had a huge crush on Valerie Bertinelli (I KNEW I should have earned to play guitar!). -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on August 15, 2014, 6:23 am

Office, The - TV Shows
Although the show hung on for at least a half season after Steve Carell left, with the two very funny "search Committee" episodes, it soon began to go down hill fast. With the emphasis more and more on Jim, Dwight and the insufferable Pam, as well as idiotic new characters (the fat guy with glasses and the supposed "stud" that Erin eventually falls for) led to a vapid and witless finale that endeared no one (Kelly abandoning a baby, Jim not taking a great job to be Dwight's flunky, Michael coming back with KIDS, Toby being humiliated - again) to the audience. Carell's character was shallow and moronic, but at least he was funny. Cannot say that aboutwhat he left behind - for the most part. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on August 8, 2014, 9:00 pm

It boned the fish once Zack finally got Kelly. It was too hard to believe that Zack Morris, after fighting it out with Slater for one semester, could get Kelly in the snap of a finger.

Ricky S. had to wear a female's wig too for Silver Spoons. The early dream sequences, Christmas specials, and Urkelbot were even alright. Hey,the writers had to prove Urkel had his smarts.

I know people who recorded the show and said it was better than Full House. They were right, then again, Full House is a smudge better than Barney and Friends. Here is where the show went wrong... I could tolerate the Urkel Dance, a rip-off of Princessa and The Bingo Boys Show Me How to Dance single. The first appearance of Jaleel dressed in drag as Myrtle was not so bad. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on August 5, 2014, 1:34 pm

Family Matters - TV Shows
Initially, this show was in line with most late 80s sitcoms. Instead of Roseanne, you had Harriet Winslow, a hard working elevator operator living in the mean streets of Chi Town. They, like the Bundys, were far from having the status the Huxtables had. Then, out of nowhere, a young man by the name of Steven Q. Urkel claimed he wanted to take Laura Winslow to the School dance and history was made. At first, Laura and Eddie were like most sitcom daughters and sons, but Laura went from being the smarter younger sister to being a tigeress. Without Urkel, though, she would have been invisible for the rest of the first season. People only tuned in from '90-'91 to see if Urkel would finally get his Laura. Needless to say, Urkel owned the very early 1990's -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on August 5, 2014, 1:30 pm

It jumped in the episode, The Way the Ball Bounces, when Urkel fills in for Laura Winslow and kisses Carl on the cheek or hugs him. I don't quite remember all of the details. It was too much for a child's show. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on August 5, 2014, 1:29 pm

Three's Company - TV Shows
Three's Company never was, isn't, and never should be considered a source of highbrow humor. The show was obviously far more inclined toward slapstick humor and double-entendre, and for the most part, it worked quite well. However, the episodes with Jenilee Harrison pushed the slapstick angle so hard it just became ludicrous. Cindy's klutziness got real old REAL fast. For that reason, to cite "Chrissy leaves" as the BTF point is a fair statement as far as it goes. To really be fair, though, you'd have to say that while the show boned when Chrissy left, it de-boned when Terri arrived and Cindy started being phased out. Once Terri's character was established and Cindy was gone, it seemed like the show had found its way again. Also, as ParkerTillman alluded, it certainly didn't hurt that Priscilla Barnes was far hotter than Somers or Harrison! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 5, 2014, 12:20 am

Frasier - TV Shows
The early episodes were great, before Daphne went bonkers and Niles was still trying to deal with his unrequited love for her.

Nurse Jackie - TV Shows
Good show. I don't know why but I love the character of Jackie, even though she cheated on her AWESOME husband, pretty much threw away her kids, steals, lies, cheats, and does anything she has to do to get her drugs. I know it sounds horrible but it really is a good show, very funny sometimes and heart breaking the next. Season before last she bonded with a teen age boy in rehab and it looked like they were helping each other stay sober, then the boy OD'd and died and Jackie went back to using. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:54 pm

Flipper - TV Shows
God what a weird show. You had a pair of teenage boys who apparently didn't own any clothes but had plenty of expensive scuba gear, a really handsome park ranger dad who didn't really seem interested in all of the women constantly throwing themselves at him, and a big grey aquatic mammal, played by Flipper, who had several IQ points more than the rest of the cast put together! Typical plot: one of the boys would do something incredibly stupid and get trapped underwater, the other boy and the dad would immediately go off in the wrong direction looking for him, and Flipper would save the day! The only other TV animal this smart was Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, who fly helicopters. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:42 pm

I thought this show was stuffy until Tristan showed up! What a big lovable goof! It was heart warming all the way through and showed how much people expected out of vets in those days!

I was delighted when I found out James Heriot was a real person and the TV show was based on his writings. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:34 pm

Grounded for Life - TV Shows
I don't know what was weirder, the show or the backstage shenanigans. Jake Burbage, who played the youngest boy, Henry, had a stage mother from hell. She constantly attacked the producers and writers for not making her son the breakout star which she was convinced was his destiny. The more she complained, the more they cut Henry's parts until they totally wrote him out of the entire final season! No explanation, just no Henry. It was like he never existed. Weird way to go with that instead of killing him off (sorta heavy to kill a child in a sit-com) or replacing him with another actor. Aside form that the show was actually pretty good, the clueless boy next door Brad (Bret Harrison) and Lily, the flaming red-hot sex kitten daughter were hysterical together. Donal Logue and Megan Pryce were good, too. Very believable modern day Irish Catholic couple in over their heads. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:23 pm

Deadwood - TV Shows
Awesome show and awesome cast! Ian McShane and Timothy Oliphant were incredible as foes. A lot of people were freaked out by the language but the show was set in the Old West and the town was populated by drunks, thieves, murderers, and whores! It was a treat to see what a town like Deadwood actually looked and sounded like back in the 1800s. It wasn't squeaky clean, people, it was dirty and nasty. I get a kick out if seeing an old western TV show and the bad guys say things like lily-livered varmint, and gosh danggit! It could be really sad, too, like when the Marshall's adopted son was killed in the street. Didn't see that one coming! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:03 pm

Ok, this is seriously funny stuff! My favorite skit was when these bored young dudes were hanging out around the office break room and one of them said something lame and another one started the, ummm self-pleasuring pantomime gesture, which his friends all found hysterical but he kept doing it, and doing it until finally he "finished." The other guys were horrified and said, "Dude! Don't finish, god! That's gross!" I laughed myself sick. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 3:50 pm

Dear Seth McFalane, please retire and take Peter with you. On the way, drop Brian off at the pound, deliver Stewie to the hospital for criminally insane children, abandon Meg at the bus station, and push Chris off a bridge. You can let Lois have the house, maybe she will find a decent family to live in it. Oh, and please burn every last copy of every Conway Twitty song ever recorded. Seriously, this show was funny a long, long, long time ago but it has jumped the bone so many times I don't know where to start. How about with Stewie? Is he gay or straight? Please figure it out and get back to us. One episode he's hittin' on all the boys, the next he's hittin' on all the girls. And why the hell does a baby have a sexual identity crisis anyway? I really love my big flat screen but I came close to putting an axe through it when you introduced Vinny. My god man, have you no shame? And please, no more musical production numbers, ever! I saw an interview and you said you were proud that you had every 15-year old boy in the country dancing and singing Shipoopi. You really are deluded. Or evil.

Leave It To Beaver - TV Shows
This actually passed for good TV back in the day? Wow. Unrealistic, sappy, dopey, very white and this town they lived in, Mayfield, was it in the Twilight Zone? Where are all the ethnic people? Where are the poor people? The old man was always reading the paper and watching the news but everything was all Skittles and Care Bears! Where was the Cold War? The McCarthy Hearings? Race riots? It's not natural for brothers to get along like Wally and the Beav. I grew up in the same room as my older brother and not a week went by that we weren't trying to kill each other! We would occasionally have fun but our main pastime was plotting each other's murder. Now that's a realistic pair of brothers! Aside from the unreality of the show, the writing was awful. Who cares if a 6-year old makes friends with a fireman? I really don't understand those people who claim this is the best TV had to offer back in the Not So Golden Age of TV! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 3:06 pm

Star Trek: The Animated Series - TV Shows
Insanely good show! I never knew it existed until one of the cable channels started showing the episodes. I thought, "Star Trek cartoons? Seriously?" I watched an episode and was blown away because they introduced the K'Zin, a race of intelligent cats created by the most awesomest sci-fi writer ever, Larry Niven! I thought maybe they were just ripping him off but sure enough there he was in the credits, written by Larry Niven! Turns out he was a regular writer for the show, amazing! They did several of his most famous stories, like The Slaver Weapon. After that I was hooked and almost cried when I had seen all of the episodes. I feel sorry for kids today not having a truly intelligent animated show to call their own! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 2:37 pm

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
The first season was a lot more gritty and I LOVED it when Riker called out Picard for doing something stupid. "Number One, take the com, I'm going to the surface." "No, Captain. I can't allow that, it is my job to protect you, this mission is far to dangerous." Then Picard would pout and go drink Earl Grey, hot while Riker got all the glory! Wesley was OK as a kid but when they started giving him real jobs and listening to his advice, TNG totally boned! Best line ever was from Guinan to Wesley when he spouted off about her personal business. "You're just a kid!" Nice way to tell him to STFU and go play with his dolls. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 2:28 pm

It seems Big Hoss is taking over the show. This season he is doing most of the negotiating and Rick only shows up to do a quick deal every now and then. Too bad, because "Big Hoss" Cory Harrison is the most unlikable, disagreeable, and obnoxious person on TV. Don't the producers notice people generally hate him? They have also made Chum into a cartoon character buffoon and the Old Man into a ghost with a token 10 seconds of air time per episode. Please!

Munsters Today, The - TV Shows
OMG! I did not that this show even existed. I eagerly watched an episode on HULU because of the cast, Lee Meriwether as Lily and Jason Marsden who played Eddie. I turned off the first episode after a few minutes, it was THAT bad, and skipped ahead several episodes. It was even worse. How this thing stayed on the air for 72 episodes is a real mystery. The guy who played Herman was so miscast it was pathetic and although Lee Meriwether has done some pretty good work, her Lily was horrible. The only decent acting came from Jason Marsden. His Eddie was funny and clever but they never gave him enough to do. Whenever he did something interesting, it was "go outside and play, Eddie!" And that would be the last you saw him in that episode. I think his average screen time was under two minutes per episode, sometimes he only got 30 seconds. As soon as The Munsters Today was cancelled, Jason went on to play the mystery teen, Dash X in Eerie, Indiana. A phenomenal role that really let him stretch out as an actor. Sadly, that show only had 19 episodes while The Munsters Today today went on for 72! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 28, 2014, 9:16 am

Boy Meets World - TV Shows
This show was clever and funny for about 2 seasons, after that it was awful and should have been taken off the air. The relationship between Cory and Shawn was the heart and soul of the show. Shawn had a very rough impoverished family life but remained a sweet kid. Cory didn't treat him differently because of it but ached inside for all of Shawn's pain. Then came Topanga, perhaps the most annoying girl on the planet. She was completely jealous of Shawn and was always trying to get Cory to stay away from him. It was at this point the show totally boned. It was no longer sweet, or funny for that matter, just a mindless sit-com with "girls are smarter than boys" plot devices. Mr. Feeny was a stalker and would have been arrested in real life. I mean even during the first season when Cory was 12, Feeny would show up at his house to bring him his homework and "check up on him." Creepy. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 28, 2014, 8:43 am

I know I'll catch hell for this but here goes. This is a terrible, awful, sick show! I watched several episodes on MeTV just to be sure, and yep, it is very bad. Here's a typical episode: Pa McCain (Chuck Connors)has a bonding moment with his cute little boy (Johnny Crawford). A bad guy shows up and Pa shoots him 632 times at point blank range in front of his son with that Winchester repeating rifle of his and everyone smiles and says what a great man Pa is and he and the kid hug and ride off into the sunset. So, he is teaching his son to murder his way out of a hard situation. Some of the "bad guys" Pa blew away were NOT all that bad, some of them just pissed him off.

And the two sets of boys, the older freaks played by James Franco and Seth Rogan and the younger geeks, played by John Francis Dailey (Sweets on Bones) and his buddies, they were just amazing!

Never got into this show (despite the fact that my wife loves it; she also likes "Full House," too, so go figure). No one could act their way out of a wet paper bag, the jokes (or mostly double entendres) weren't even funny in the '70s and the supporting cast (Larry, the Ropers, Furley) were miserable.

Three Stooges, The - TV Shows
When Curly had his first stroke in 1946 (brought on no doubt by a terrible lifestyle and alcohol), you could notice the diminished quality of not only his performance, but of the shorts as well. Shemp took over shortly thereafter and the films were just not as funny (with a few notable exceptions). There were also a lot of remakes with Shemp just filling in the Curly roles. And although I voted "Never Boned," in reality, Shemp's death was the end of the shorts franchise. Joe Besser (who had appeared in other programs, including the "Abbott and Costello Show") evidently had a contract that stated he could not be abused like the others before him. That's why he would lisp, "Not so hard!" and hit back whenever Moe was ready to crack him (in the "Three Stooges Encyclopedia," Moe Howard bemoans this fact). The movies then brought in Curly Joe DeRita and toned down the (hilarious) violence. The new film obviously loved the characters and the Farrelly brothers knew what they were doing. The three leads were also pretty good (Sean Hayes in almost unrecognizable). As dumb and lowbrow as their humor was, it's still funnier than 99 percent of the crap we get today, so I say just enjoy the hold shorts. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 23, 2014, 11:46 am

Inside the Actor's Studio - TV Shows
I certainly wouldn't call this show "great," but it did have its interesting moments. Perfectly parodied on "SNL" with Will Ferrell playing Lipton, with his breathless pauses, bizarre commentary and faux admiration of ANYONE he is interviewing (the sketch had him fawning over Charles Nelson Reilly and Dustin "Screech" Diamond). -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 22, 2014, 2:34 pm

A-Team, The - TV Shows
Let's face it, few people tuned into to see anyone but Mr. T on this show (not even George Peppard drew as many fans). B.A. was so over-the-top (like Mr. T himself) one had to laugh, while the situations were just one notch above total ludicrous. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 22, 2014, 2:29 pm

Impractical Jokers - TV Shows
Often kind of silly, but there are some fairly funny moments now and again, especially when they appear before focus groups or give lectures to various corporate gatherings. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 22, 2014, 12:12 pm

CNN - Random Topics
For anyone who thinks CNN is unbiased, may I point you to Piers Morgan's deplorable actions after Sandy Hook? He took to the airwaves for weeks screaming that gun owners are all nuts. His town hall debate, which he monopolized and used to berate those attending with opposing viewpoints, was a shining example of his bias. Even my stepdad, who is a STAUNCH liberal, thought he had gone too far and was discrediting his position by being an asshole. If that's not enough for you, perhaps we can include Susan Roesgen's positive meltdown at a Chicago Tea Party protest, during which she sputtered accusations of fascism and Fox News hate. Or how about Rick Sanchez's attempts to equate pro-lifers to Westboro Baptists? How about the fact that Michael Moore still has a recurring spot on CNN? How about their plethora of left-leaning "original specials?" Yeah, real down-the-middle there. /sarcasm -- Submitted By: () on July 22, 2014, 10:33 am

Late Night with Conan O'Brien - TV Shows
Andy leaving Late Night killed the show for me. I think the show just gradually went downhill and it stopped having the kind of awesome weird humor it had in the 90s, the show sorely missed his weird demented sensibility. Also original writers Robert Smigel and Louis CK leaving likely took a lot out of the show. Conan on his own is a funny guy but they don't have those bizarre inappropriate sketches anymore like the NBC Satellite Channels, interviews via satellite with "celebrities" whose mouths only move, staring contests, Actual News Items and slideshows from Conan's "vacations". His show now is as bland and safe as any other talk show unfortunately. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 22, 2014, 3:47 am

Critic, The - TV Shows
One of the funniest shows ever made, never should've been cancelled. I have no idea why it didn't catch on. I think it would have done better now with the popularity of cable, they could've had it on Comedy Central or FX. The webisodes were bad and lame though unfortunately. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 22, 2014, 3:36 am

Howard Stern - Celebrities
The show died when Artie got really into addiction and Beth turned Howard into a eunuch. It's weird how quickly the show went downhill, the first few years on Sirius were amazing but Artie being basically asleep when he was drugged out kept anyone from reigning in Howard and his babbling about reality shows and his life in the Hamptons. It's basically a shell of what it was with only occasional funny moments from Richard, Sal and goofing on JD and Eric the Midget. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 22, 2014, 3:23 am

Night Stand with Dick Dietrick - TV Shows
Here was the thing about this show. Everyone I ever met who watched it loved it. But the main issue with the show is that in many stations it aired in the dead of night. In my market the show aired at 2:00AM on Sunday Morning. So the only people who could watch it were nighthawks that just stayed late on the weekends or people coming home from the bars. I personally think if the show came on during the day in a lot of stations it would of had a longer run. -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on July 20, 2014, 2:52 pm

It took awhile for me to watch Hunger Games but when I finally did, I enjoyed it. Hopefully, they don't screw it up like they do with almost every sequel or trilogy. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 19, 2014, 1:29 am

Mariah Carey - Music Groups
hate to say it, but her music career's pretty much over..what Glitter didn't do to it, her last album did.. With a title like 'I am Mariah, the elusive Chanteuse' can't say i'm too surprised. Even Glitter managed to sell at least 100k copies -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on July 15, 2014, 5:34 pm

Ramones, The - Music Groups
RIP Tommy..the last surviving original member. I still find it odd that the other 3 died in such a short time span.

Clint Eastwood - Celebrities
As I predicted in my first comment, Clint allowing his wife to do a reality show ended up destroying their marriage. For the love of God people, DON'T DO IT. Ozzy and Sharon are the EXCEPTION, not the rule! Look at all the other couples that did reality shows and look how their marriages turned out. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 12, 2014, 1:31 pm

Pamela Anderson - Celebrities
It's funny that the Hep C is her boning point. But I have to agree, that's when she fell off the pop culture radar. Logically, having the STDs shouldn't detract from her job as professional eye candy. After all, it's not like any of us were going to get the chance to have sex with her anyways. And yet... Something in our subconscious was telling us that she is diseased and not to procreate with her and thus not allowing the male fantasy to occur anymore. It's kind of too bad, because she was trying to bring awareness the way Magic Johnson did with AIDS. Poor Pam looks really rough these days. After divorcing the costar of Paris Hilton's sex tape, maybe she will finally learn to stay away from the bad boys. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 12, 2014, 1:24 pm

Law and Order SVU - TV Shows
Benson and Stabler rocked but this thing was on the air for too many years! In its prime, this was the best of the Law and Order series of shows. However, it went from being a fantastic drama to a vehicle for titillation. There were far to many pedophile cases and most of the other victims of sex abuse were gorgeous women (and some men, haha!). They went into lingering detail about the crimes in a way I can only describe as fan service. One show had a guy raping his younger brother. Instead of just saying he abused his brother, they went into lurid detail about how the younger guy was seduced and what it felt like while his brother abused him, my god! Did we really have to know these details? -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 3, 2014, 9:09 am

Dead Like Me - TV Shows
Amazing show that was killed too soon by the always shortsighted Showtime. One of the best things about DLM was the way they portrayed the Reapers. At first you thought they were chosen by fate randomly but as you got to know the characters, you realized every one of them was deeply flawed. It's my theory that they were paying off some cosmic debt and were being prevented from moving on until the debt was satisfied. Take Rube, the saintly father figure and leader of the Reapers. It was revealed that he was shot to death while robbing a bank and left a wife and small child behind to fend for themselves. Mason was a junkie in life who stole and committed various crimes to support his habit and died of an overdose. Daisy was a slut who used men to advance her acting career. We don't really know what George's major flaw was, except that she was unbelievably selfish and lazy, but I believe there was more to her than that. Too bad we will never know, thanks Showtime! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 3, 2014, 9:00 am

World Wrestling Entertainment - Random Topics
Yeah, online wrestling runoff has it that Vince is NOT a fan of the recent NXT callups Adam Rose and Paige. Paige has been saddled with a crappy gimmick (having the tar beat of her during most of a match, only to sneak out a win with one of her finishers), Adam Rose I admit is kind of stupid, but Bo Dallas seems to be winning fans over with his "bad guy pretending to be good guy" routine. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on June 28, 2014, 1:41 pm

He's such a nice, normal looking young man, like the college kid next door. Then he opens his mouth and vile racist sexist homophobic and misogynistic filth pours out non-stop.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo - TV Shows
Cartooner and MartyMarty: I looked it up on 3 different sources. The mother puts most of the "TV Money" into trusts funds she established for her children and granddaughter. That is a really smart thing to do and I applaud her decision. The kids will have access to the trusts when they turn 21. Private trust funds for your family are in no way charity, but I see how someone might confuse them. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on June 26, 2014, 7:35 am

Pittsburgh Steelers - Random Topics
I think most Steelers fans think the Pittsburgh Steelers began in the 1970's when Terry Bradshaw and Franco Harris and the Steel Curtain Defense came to be. The Rooneys have done a fine job running the franchise since the 1970's, but the fanbase is borderline arrogant (though when you have won 6 Super Bowls, I guess that is kind of a right) -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on June 23, 2014, 4:57 am

They've got the future stars, they've got one head honcho who seems to have a good vision of what the future should be (see how Triple H runs NXT)... the problem is Trips is not THE head honcho.

Blossom - TV Shows
As I recall, a running joke was that Joey used to run around without pants or undies when he was little, just a shirt. When he got into trouble he would say he was dressed just like Donald Duck, to which his dad would reply, "Joey, Donald Duck has feathers!" Sometimes when Joey did something stupid as a teen, his dad or older brother would would say, "It's Donald Dick all over again!" I agree it wasn't the best sitcom but it was pleasant to watch and Blossom and Six were pretty adorable. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 20, 2014, 11:42 am

Cartooner, if, as you say, the Boo Boo family "donates most (if not all) of their money" is true, it is only further proof they are idiots. They live in squalor and they give away millions?

Golden Palace, The - TV Shows
This was a sad show. Coming off something as trail blazing and hilarious as The Golden Girls, and into this formulaic, unfunny mess was just depressing.

This show boned the first minute after it was first unleashed on a poor unsuspecting world. Gooey, lame show with terrible writing and worse acting. Gave us the devil spawn known as the Olsen twins.

Bryan Cranston - Celebrities
Bryan rocks! Congrats to him on his latest triumph, the Tony Award for Best Dramatic Actor on Broadway! I agree that his Malcolm in the Middle days were sad, so were his recurring roles in Seinfeld and King of Queens and a dozen other bit comedic parts. There are early signs of his greatness, however. Check out the X-Files episode "Drive," it is a very serious dramatic role. His deranged character kidnaps Mulder in a desperate attempt to get help for his illness. Also, Bryan was brilliant in the 1990's mini-series "From the Earth to the Moon," in which he played Buzz Aldrin, a weird astronaut (second man on the moon after Armstrong) who was overly religious and had a huge chip on his shoulder. Bryan had a horrible childhood, both his parents were drunks and abandoned him and his younger brother and they were shipped off to an abusive grandfather. Bryan overcame it all, avoided booze and drugs, and concentrated on his career. Well done, Mr. Cranston, well done! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 14, 2014, 6:55 am

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
