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.

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

I don't know what "Scottish Site" means, but I do remember Jumptheshark back in the day. I wasn't a frequent visitor, but I could always count on being entertained by the user comments. I remember crying with laughter while reading 48 pages worth of commentary on "Little House on the Prairie." Why on earth did TV Guide buy it only to kill it? It's not as if they were competing products. I wish I had printed out more content before all that good stuff was destroyed. Shame on all parties involved.

This is a prime example of what happens when a great idea gets into the hands of people who think they know better how to improve on said greatness. Too bad! I really liked the old site with it's laid-back style, and left many a comment there over the years. It's a crying shame that the Borg of entertainment (TV Guide) bought the rights to the site, reconstructing (and resurrecting) the new one in it's own image. The result: a VASTLY inferior product in spite of the best of intentions. May the old site rest in peace! -- Submitted By: (Chuck) on September 25, 2010, 12:08 am

30 Rock - TV Shows
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

Green Acres - TV Shows
This show, without a doubt, one so far ahead of its time in the comedy world. The wordplay alone was comic genius, and sprinkle in all of the characters around Hooterville and Pixley, and they mined gold. When Lisa asked Oliver once on the show why she married him, and he answered, she replies "You said you married me because I reminded you of Za Za Gabor!" It was great when they incorporated the elements of the credits and other shows (i.e. The Beverly Hillbillies) into their own show, and what can be said about Mr. Kimble? Awesome! Well, maybe not awesome....pretty good, well....not "pretty" good, but good.....no, come to think of it...awesome.....well, there really is no thinking about it..yep, Awesome! -- Submitted By: (ScottHochlander) on September 20, 2010, 11:29 am

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.

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).

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.

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

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

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

"Cranky old curmudgeon" my butt.

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 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

First MIB was not bad. Nothing spectacular, but good entertainment. I prefered Tommy Lee Jones as the alpha dog over Will Smith. The second one was a flat out mess. Will Smith as the lead role was awful. He was so arrogant and full of himself in this one. In the first one he was somewhat likable, not so much in this one. Also too many pop culture jokes that are now stale (since the movie was released in 2002), cutsy moments (talking dog, aliens drinking beer, etc.), celebrity cameos (with Michael Jackson at his strangest), obvious product placement, and just a boring storyline. I have no idea why we need a third one. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 14, 2010, 5:30 pm

Mr. Bean - TV Shows
Yeah, forget the cartoon--forget the sappy, misguided 'family-friendly' films. Stick with the straight up unadulterated Mr. Bean. I didn't think Rowan Atkinson could possibly top himself in 'Blackadder', but he sure comes darn close with this. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 14, 2010, 12:03 pm

Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
40 years ago, and this show is still as off-your-chair funny as ever. Hasn't aged one bit. The comedy focus went in a somewhat different direction after Cleese's departure (more emphasis on long, sometimes a little too esoterically self-indulgent skits rahter than the quick 'blackout' style ones), but even the Cleese-free eps knock out anything on TV today. Nobody will ever top them. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 14, 2010, 11:59 am

Scooby Doo - TV Shows
Good ole Crappy Doo-Doo. What producer was originally responsible for coming up with the concept of introducing child/childlike spinoffs of popular cartoon characters anyway? Hanging's too good for him, whoever he was. Possibly the only worse 'progeny' cartoon characters were the Pink Panther's sons/nephews/bastards/purloined Haitian orphans/whatever they were. And Pink Panther had already boned big time when some idiot decided to make him a TALKING character. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 14, 2010, 11:51 am

Conservapedia - Websites
Wikipedia does have a liberal bias. Nobody had to "convince" me; I saw it for myself. I compared a conservative and liberal page to make sure, and saw the liberal one was treated better. I thought, "Is it me, or does Wikipedia have a liberal bias?" I Googled, and saw others felt the same way. It also has other biases as well. You should have seen how nasty they were towards people who felt BTF deserved a page! However, while a few Wikipedia pages have balance, the same cannot be said of Conservapedia. Fox News is too liberal? Proves the only way to be a conservative is if you follow all of their stances. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 14, 2010, 8:29 am

Happy Days - TV Shows
Personally, I say that its true boning point (to the point where they couldn't turn back) was when Richie (Ron Howard's character) left the show. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on September 14, 2010, 4:25 am

Happy Days - TV Shows
Actually, I thought the show was fairly decent for the first season or two. I didn't think it would ever make comedy classic status, but it did have a nice, fairly authentic "American Graffitti"-ish feel back then. Even the Fonzie character was kept under control. Then 'Tha Fonz' became the breakout character on the series, and shortly after the whole show fell apart for me; it became irritating, dumbed-down and totally geared to the Fonzie-fanatics. It always surprised me that Ron Howard stuck around for as long as he did in the mess that HD turned into as a result of Fonziemania. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 13, 2010, 4:32 pm

Conservapedia - Websites
If someone says that Fox News is liberal, they're either joking/trolling, or completely stupid/right winged that they put Fox to shame. Apparently, the guy who started Conservapedia said that he started it because he found Wikipedia to have a "liberal bias." -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on September 13, 2010, 4:26 pm

Indiana Jones - Movie Series
I voted for the Skull, but was hard pressed not to vote for the Fridge. This film was such a comedown from the first three. It was so silly. I loved "Live Free, Die Hard" (which came out about the same time and also had the original star team up with a younger hero). I wish that the Indy writers could have come up with a similar pairing that truly worked, and that they didn't resort to slapstick to try to keep their audience entertained. -- Submitted By: (LoriDavis) on September 13, 2010, 1:06 pm

On their main page, they ask, "Is Fox News too liberal for you?" That's the first time I ever saw or heard anyone genuinely accuse Fox News of being liberal. Seems to me that Conservapedia is an example of the extreme far right. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 13, 2010, 8:28 am

I played the whole 'Where's George?' thing for about a year. Finally got fed up with it when none of my bills were coming back, so I just quit. Flash forward 2 years later, I gt an email from 'Where's George' telling me one of my bills got a hit. It was the highlight of my day. Pretty much radio silence from then on. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 13, 2010, 7:26 am

Sirius XM Satellite Radio - Random Topics
I like having this, especially when I drive out in the middle of nowhere, which I have to frequently. My main problem is with some of the stations (the 80s one being the worst) the DJs continue to talk when the song is playing. Shut up while the song is playing! -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 12, 2010, 1:11 pm

1990's - Random Topics
The 90s was a fun decade. That was my high school years and it was a great time to be a teenager. There were good sitcoms on TV. The Simpsons was king and you also had Friends, Home Improvement, NYPD Blue, and the X-Files. This was the last time that there were regularly good sitcoms on TV, before reality TV took over. The 90s witnessed the decline of MTV but had some decent music until the bubblegum music of the latter part of the decade took over and hip-hop and rap became the norm. The 90s ended on September 11, 2001. I guess you can't really say it boned, it just went past its prime (except in fashion which still seems to be hanging on). As an aside, does anyone else think the transition period from about 1989-1991 was such an awkward time period? It was a weird bridge between the two decades. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 12, 2010, 1:04 pm

Unit, The - TV Shows
I think Evan227 you hit it right on the head. Who wouldn't want to watch elite Delta operators put into impossible situations that keep you on the edge of your seat each week.... Well, women and Sci-Fi nerds. I think they started trying too hard to change the audience of the show and it really caused it to bone. However, boned or not, if it comes down to watching "The Unit" or "The New Adventures of Old Christine" I know where my money is going. It's not going Julia Louis-Dreyfus, just to make that clear. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 11, 2010, 4:53 pm

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - TV Shows
While this show (along with the entire Terminator storyline) has its time holes, I liked the idea of seeing the Terminator series in a TV format. I think Lena Headey did an amazing job as Sarah Conner and Summer Glau was a great choice as a terminator (cause who's really gonna think she could kick your ass). Even though Thomas Dekker was kind of whiney as John Conner the rest of the cast held the story together. Although I liked Green's character of Derek Reese I thought it was incredibly ballsy to just end him with one shot in the last season. It shows realism and no matter how badass you may be or how much of a main character you are, you're no match for a terminator. I really wanted to see where this show went and felt it was cancelled before the entire story could be told (or even ruined) and don't think it got the chance to bone. That could also have been a good thing. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 11, 2010, 4:44 pm

Garfield and Friends - TV Shows
I don't think you should take the movie into consideration when attempting to determine whether or not the TV series "Garfield and Friends" ever boned. The movie is in a whole different spectrum than this show and I think you could put it into consideration if it were "Garfield and Friends the Movie" instead of the "Crappy CGI Adventures of a Cat That Was Once Garfield." I think if you stick to what formula the show used it never really changed for its run: Garfield short, US Acres short and Garfield short. It was a fun show when I was a kid and since I don't recall the new characters of Game Boy or the Great Gazoo ever showing up to spice up the later seasons I'd say it never really boned. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 11, 2010, 4:34 pm

McDonalds - Random Topics
Not a McDonald's fan and haven't eaten there in years. I personally don't think the food tastes good, but that's my opinion. Having said that, McDonald's boned the fish when they dumped the McDonaldland characters and started the "I'm lovin' it" campaign aimed for urban audience. The ads bug the crap out of me and seem to be pandering. Also, I love how they only emphasize their healthy options these days. I can't remember the last ad I saw for a Big Mac or Quarterpounder, but seem to see ones for the snack wraps and coffee pretty much all the time. Most people I know who go to McDonald's don't go for their salads, they go for their burgers or chicken McNuggets. Oh well, McDonald's will always be a good way to relieve constipation. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 11, 2010, 2:39 pm

Action 52 (NES) - Random Topics
Believe it or not, I actually got to play Action 52 on a REAL cartridge. Before AVGN's review came around. So, when did Action 52 bone the fish? For me, it's a tie: realizing how many glitches there actually are, the awful controls, and how stupid the games' premises were: A guy with giant feet stomping on eyeballs. A giant baby climbing furniture and squirting milk at adults half its size. Indecipherable mishmashes of pixels shooting odd-looking bullets at other indecipherable mishmashes of pixels. And with that last sentence, I summed up the premises for more than half the games. But if I have to choose the one game which proved A52 BTFed, I guess it should be Cheetahmen. Why? Because you'd think the other games were poorly made because all the attention went to this one. Sadly for those who paid $199 for this cart, Cheetahmen is only SLIGHTLY better than the other games. And even then, I'm being too generous in calling it "slightly better". The truth came to light: these people couldn't get even ONE game right, tried to cover it up by making 51 games which were worse, then tried to get rich off it by tricking unsuspecting buyers into getting 52 "new and original" games for less than $4 each. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 11, 2010, 1:30 pm
