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.

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
Wow, is the Obama ship sinking or what... and I regretfully voted for the guy, but man... His terrible response to the BP incident, in which he went over his powers and put a stop to all offshore oil drilling to compensate for not responding at all, which only lead to it being overturned by the court, to suing the state of Arizona for supporting a federal law that stops illegal immigration when the law is supported by most people, to his rash and terrible judgment call on the General McChrystal incident, which shows to me he has no control over his military as Commander-in-Chief. That is almost an impeachable offense. Top it off with the healthcare "plan" and his racist response in the "beer summit" event and you have the looks of a one-term Presidency in the works. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 23, 2010, 4:49 pm

George Lopez - TV Shows
This has got to be one of the most racist shows! Everytime they show a white person, they portray them as shallow and stupid. Then there's George's abusive sorry-ass excuse for a mother. The episode where he redecorated her bathroom for her and she didn't say "thank you" then she starts whining about her "hard" life and how she got pregnant at 15, was on her own, had to work hard as a single mom, blah blah blah... ad nauseum just made me want to throw up.

Land of the Lost - TV Shows
The original 1970s version boned when Spencer Milligan (Rick Marshall) left - the third season was nowhere near as good as the previous two seasons (though I admit Timestop was a good episode). The 1990s remake boned from the get-go. I mean, living in a tree house? They might as well slather BBQ sauce all over themselves and scream "Eat me" at Scarface (the name of the T-rex in the 1990s remake). -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 20, 2010, 9:21 pm

Dora The Explorer doesn't work at all.

MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge) - TV Shows
It's mindless entertainment, and I expected nothing more! It's amazing to think that half of the voice actors (Christopher Darga and John Cervenka) were party responsible for the abysmal garbage that was Burt Luddin's Love Buffet on GSN, cause they totally redeemed themselves on MXC! Sure, fans of Takeshi's Castle will probably be dumbfounded by what was done to the original show, but it's for a different audience, and luckily, it was well recieved enough for a four year run. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:53 am

Family Feud - TV Shows
If you'd asked me when Family Fued boned in the early 2000s, I'd have said when Louie Anderson became the host, no questions asked. His voice was grating, he never really seemed like he wanted to be there, and he was never particularly funny or witty, despite his funny stand-up material. But when Family Fued dropped Louie for Richard Karn, things improved and improved fast. Richard Karn definitely had no game show experience, but he was warm, friendly, and visibly enjoyed hosting the show. Plus, the set got better and the double point round returned, both I welcomed! So it's definitely jumped back, John O'Hurley also proved to be a great host, though the jury's out on Steve Harvey until we see him in action. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:48 am

Match Game - TV Shows
Match Game was always an entertaining show in it's classic daytime/syndicated runs of the 70s and early 80s. However, when they had the bright idea to morph Match Game and Hollywood Squares into The Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour, it would never recover. It wasn't even Match Game's fault, the Jon Bauman-hosted joke answer-less Hollywood Squares sunk it, but even if it was as good as the Peter Marshall era, the show would still have left me scratching my head over why they were merged together. Nothing's saved it since either, Match Game 90 was too bland and had a horrible timeslot, and Match Game 98...the less I say, the better. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:42 am

American Idol - TV Shows
The auditions are the best part because we get the trainwreck horrible singers and we get the good singers before they get a television/record label polish. The best judges of talent to me are how they sing as themselves in the audition stage, when it's just them alone singing what they know and want. I'd love to see a singing talent show where the contestants can pick their own songs for the WHOLE run of the show, or sing their own original material if they choose, without outside influence. I'd also love to see more heavy metal singers actually advance, cause I bet some very talented ones have auditioned before, but knowing the commercial appeal of this show, I can't see it ever happening. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:36 am

Hell's Kitchen (U.S.) - TV Shows
The anti-climactic cliffhangers don't bother me, they're just a way to try and get fans to tune in next week, and even if we know it likely won't lead somewhere, it must work on some people. That being said, I like Hell's Kitchen, I like how Gordon Ramsay has total control to run the kitchen and to judge and eliminate contestants. The show presents everything well, and we really get to know the contestants. And of course, seeing Gordon yell and get angry is always fun. It may not be the best method of finding a great new chef, but I'd take this over Top Chef any day, it's just an entertaining summer show! -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:29 am

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - TV Shows
WWTBAM was perfectly fine the way it was until producers started tinkering with the syndicated format. Stuff like dumping the classic lifelines, adding a time limit to a show that didn't need to be sped up, overcomplicating the show with unneeded graphics and additions, and of course, the completely dispensable "Tournament of Ten", which to me sounded like a desperation move to force a millionaire cause they hadn't had one in 6 years. WWTBAM was at it's best when Regis hosted the ABC version, and if it wasn't for airing it too much and all the celebrity episodes, it would have lasted a LOT longer. It was simple, fun, suspenseful, and engaging. A lot of that appeal has dried up in the last few years thanks to the changes that have been made. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:23 am

Real TV - TV Shows
Real TV boned when Ahmad Rashad replaced John Daly. Ahmad's a nice enough guy, I found him underrated as the host of Caesar's Challenge, and he's great as a sports host, but he definitely didn't fit on Real TV. He seemed somewhat wooden, where John Daly was a well-versed perfect host for the material. I didn't mind Kristin Eykel either as a co-host, though she was dispensible. Real TV went from generally amazing and interesting home video to mostly extreme sport mishaps after Ahmad took over too, it's like they wanted to appeal to a younger audience and not try as hard at the same time. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:16 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
Family Guy gives me mixed feelings. I find the show hilarious, but the structure and characters make me dislike it at the same time. Since the third season, things seem to have gotten worse. The stories went from actually trying (with some cutaway gags) to an over reliance on cutaway gags and unneeded character development that made most of the main characters less likeable, ESPECIALLY Stewie, whose world-domination matricidal bent is sorely missed. The stories are worse too. I still find the show very funny, but only if you strip the cutaway gags from the story itself. Without them, it feels empty and not as fun as it was in the first two seasons. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:07 am

Jeopardy! - TV Shows
Jeopardy has never jumped or boned, it's as entertaining as it's ever been. I have nitpicks, like the unnecessary Clue Crew, the set not turning red in Double Jeopardy like in the 1990s, and the old "board-turns-on" music being replaced, but those are all minor. Jeopardy is classic, they know not to screw with what works, and it's worked for 26 years and counting! If it ain't broke, don't fix it! -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 12:42 am

Hills, The - TV Shows
Scripted or not, I have no interest in these preppy high class 20-somethings with no noticeable talent, unless being a "reality TV star" is talent in the new millennium. Reality shows are best when the people/family being followed have an interesting back story, profession, or situation to be wrapped in, and there's not enough of those. I'd bring up the fact that this airs on "Music Television" and isn't a music program, but MTV buried that long ago. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 12:33 am

At the Movies - TV Shows
Siskel and Ebert were a great team, they played off each other well, they genuinely loved films to the point that they'd fight over them to defend their ratings. They made "thumbs up/down" a household term. After Gene died, it was never the same. Richard Roeper grew on me, but he's no Gene Siskel. The set got worse too. It was never quite as good during the "Ebert & Roeper" years, though I still watched.Ebert losing his voice, the celebrity guest hosts, and the two Bens sunk it further. It's jumping back with Scott & Phillips, but not enough to save the show. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 19, 2010, 5:50 pm

BEATLES, The - Music Groups
I was listening to some Beatles songs the other day, and I just don't get it. Now, I'm a great lover of music, from all over the world, in all pockets of time. But I just don't understand this worldwide obsession with this group. Am I missing something? Is my brain not functioning properly from preferring Elvis to this group? To my ears, their songs are boring, nonsensical, they jump from style to style with no explanation. Or maybe it was the marijuana talking. This is my opinion, if people like their then I respect that. I know if someone said this about ABBA I wouldn't go so far as to make them a pariah. Sadly, that's what many Beatles fans do as they expect every living human being to love and respect them even if they broke wind into a microphone. They are not gods. They are just a rock band, like all the other rock bands. People don't need to feel guilty or hurt because of public majority. Unfortunately, as long as there will be music, there will be crazed Beatles fanatics. -- Submitted By: (doctorwhorox) on June 19, 2010, 2:43 pm

Can we say mid life crisis? I hope I never start acting that way when I get to be in that age range. It's just so cliched. He's just another 50-plus guy with a trophy wife.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Movie Series
I **have** read the book, and I say Burton owes Dahl an apology. Or would if Dahl were still alive -- maybe he should make amends via seance. The musical numbers in the original actually **do** fit with the book: In the book, after each of the children leaves the tour (due to falling victim to his/her vice), the Oompa-Loompas come out and sing a sing about it, delivering a lesson in the process.

Fawlty Towers is the poster child for why British comedies seem to be such high quality. THEY KNEW WHEN TO STOP!!! They shot a series of six GREAT episodes, then, came back by popular demand (more than three years later) to knock out another six "quite good" episodes. It's possible to sense a different aura with Series 2 though; instead of nature's vista, we got a really exceptional landscape done by master artists. They were WORKING hard at being funny rather than just BEING funny. Most important - we never had to see them do any weak material stretched out to 7 or 8 series. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on June 16, 2010, 6:10 pm

Ghostbusters - Movie Series
In the TMNT movie topic I discussed how a franchise has to accommodate for the kids who like it. Upon reflection, Ghostbusters II is just that as well. Turning the whole thing into a cartoon (which I have to admit I liked) ended up making the franchise less enjoyable to adults, and the second movie was likewise made with kids in mind. But at the same time, it seemed to be made as if the cartoon didn't even exist because the only reason why ghosts were becoming a problem was as Winston put it "the dead HAVE been rising from the grave" as part of a talk with Ray about the Book of Revelation in the Bible, which is about the end of times. Therefore, after the Marshmallow Man melted and made a mess of Central Park West, the business was done as the end of times had been averted, which meant that there were no more ghosts. Then five years later, an underground pink slime coincided with the impending rebirth of Vigo the Carpathian, another world ending event therefore resulting in the return of the ghosts. And as I write this, we have a cartoon where ghosts showed up without connection to the biblical reference (but of course that would be for a reason). I guess when you look back on the 1980's, the practices of the entertainment industry were not much different from the 60's and 70's even if there were more things likable to people. Maybe it's just a product of the fact that this came out after a time of heavier censorship practices and there was a new learning curve on how to please everyone. Oh well. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on June 15, 2010, 9:43 pm

Dharma & Greg - TV Shows
Still rocks, but I'm biased: My girlfriend and I first got together by joking about the "Booty Call" episode. To Stephanie -- I agree that thinking about Greg while watching Criminal Minds is a good way to make your brain go "Tilt!", but how about this ... have Jenna Elfman do a guest spot on Criminal Minds ... as a perp! And Hotch has to catch her. How's that for tilty? :-) -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 15, 2010, 9:03 pm

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Movie Series
Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are best friends so it was given that Depp would have the role whether he deserved it or not. That isn't reason to let that bug me, Burton's adaptation was more inline with the book, and is therefore the one that deserves to be enjoyed. The earlier Gene Wilder movie, in spite of being a classic, was made for the wrong reason. The studio wanted a family friendly film with musical numbers, much against the tone of the book. And I know there will always be people that prefer the older movie, but if those people took the time to read Dahl's book, they would be owing Tim Burton an apology. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on June 15, 2010, 3:11 pm

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Movie Series
Oddly enough, Gene Wilder was not even NEAR the first choice for the role of Wonka. Dahl considered Spike Milligan to be the perfect choice for the role. Also it's interesting that Roald Dahl himself was ultimately very unhappy with this particular adaptation of his story. Unfortunately, we'll never know if he would've considered Burton's adaptation any better. http://www.answers.com/topic/willy-wonka-and-the-chocolate-factory -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on June 15, 2010, 12:24 pm

Indiana Jones - Movie Series
I agree with Andy. The first three films were homages to the serials of the 1930s right, and they were set in the 1930s. Due to the long delay between 3 and 4, some times has to have passed for the fourth one naturally. Thus, they are in the 1950s and the serials of the 1950s often had many aliens and paranoia of nuclear war. Hence, there is nothing too out of the Indiana Jones vain with the aliens and the nuking of the fridge. People are just nit picking there. That being said, the fourth one is still not on par with 1 and 3 but passable enough in my book. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on June 15, 2010, 1:01 am

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Movie Series
I guess I am one of the few who would vote "Didn't bone". Yeah, Depp's version of Wonka was a little Michael Jacksonish, but it was still something different, something with a different spin to it, and I didn't mind it at all. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on June 15, 2010, 12:43 am

Frasier - TV Shows
Defintely Season 8: the year of Hell. Stared with "they ALMOST did it--" not only Niles and Daphnetogether in Season, but also Frasir and Roz. I could hear the speedboat revving up, and Fonzie saying "AAAYYYYYY!!!! Where's my waterskis?" Then came the classic BTF/JTS signs: an endless parade of special guest-stars, characters becoming one-note caricatures, etc. Daphne got fat via fat-suit to hide Jane Leeves's pregnancy, it was OVER. Once Niles & Daphne got together, the writers were like "NOW what do we do?" Then it got worse from there. Martin got married to WENDY MALICK??? What, was Angelina Jolie not available? How could ANYONE believe that could happen? She couldn't resist how he swilled beer and watched television all day? Season 7 was about the end of it; after that, the shark was jumped AND boned. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on June 14, 2010, 10:58 pm

Sex and the City - TV Shows
Jaws, what you're referring to is known as "Flanderization," i.e. where a character becomes defined by a single characteristic, which becomes grossly exaggerated, and this defining the entire character as a one-dimensional running gag; it was originated when Ned Flanders became nothing but a super-optimistic, bible-thumping nonsense-talker. . I could tell about this on SACTC when Carrie started bitching about Berger writing about a girl's hair being tied with a "sccrrrEEEEEEEENCHEEEE!!!" But the whole series BTF from Day 1, since the girls were pretty self-centered and mean-spirited, and had NOTHING in common, other than constantly stuffing their faces in restaurant together every say. The jokes also stunk more and more, with Carrie's horrible puns reaching far below the New York sewer-line-- until it really hit the crapper with the movie's "And as Charlotte released her bowels, I RELEASED my feelings!" That stunk in MORE ways than one. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on June 14, 2010, 10:45 pm

Sega (Company) - Random Topics
The Nintendo-dissing commercials were what kept me away from Sega and turned me into a complete Nintendo fanboy. I could tell Sega was getting desperate when they claimed the Genesis had "blast processing" and the Super Nintendo didn't. They paid dearly when the truth came to light. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 14, 2010, 7:31 pm

Garfield (comic strip) - Random Topics
Many reasons this one boned: 1.) Garfield went from fat, ugly cat (look at the 1st-3rd years of the strip) to cute. 2.) Garfield's attitude became nicer and nicer as the strip progressed. 3.) Jon went from average guy/cartoonist to complete dork and nerd. Lately they've made him more normal/average guy like again. 4.) The humor has been blunted considerably from the early days. 5.) Same old repetitive story lines (Garfield hates Mondays, Garfield loves lasagna, etc.) 6.)Characters have disappeared with no explanation (Lyman, Nermal, Arlene) I think that's enough for now. I actually think having Jon hook up with Liz was a good thing. It could lead to fresh new storylines for once. We'll see how it unfolds. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 14, 2010, 4:46 pm

@thedude19766 - Actually, it was at a San Diego Padres game at Qualcomm Stadium (formerly Jack Murphy Stadium) that Roseanne Barr did that disgraceful performance.

Andy Griffith Show - TV Shows
This show is such a classic! However, I can't handle episodes with too much Aunt Bea and her whiny, weak, helpless, pitiful, "put upon" voice! She had absolutely no authority whatsoever in her tone and it's a wonder Opey even obeyed her (but then again, Pa would've beat his ass if he didn't.) -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on June 14, 2010, 11:27 am

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Movie Series
I'm not a huge fan of either film and find both disturbing in different ways, but I would say I still prefer the Gene Wilder version. Even with all his faults, he has some redeeming qualities. I didn't find any with Johnny Depp's version. Instead, I found a Michael Jackson clone when Jackson was at his strangest. Not only that, the outside storylines were annoying and stupid and the whole new film was too "Tim Burtonized", if you know what I mean. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 14, 2010, 8:14 am

Blockbusters - TV Shows
Never boned. Great game show from the 80s that probably should have lasted longer than it did. The whole concept of "two heads is better than one" is executed well and it was always exciting to see how long a contestant could last on the show. Not only that, but it was the only show where longtime game show legend Bill Cullen won an Emmy. When the show returned in 1987 with Bill Raffety, it became a Jeopardy clone with two solo contestants answering questions and didn't last long. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 14, 2010, 8:08 am

Andy Griffith Show - TV Shows
truly lost something after the exit of Don Knotts. Although it did continue after that, the void could not be filled by the addition of Warren. The expanded storylines of the other townfolk were hit or miss. Really didn't care to much about the misadventures of Aunt Bee and her BFF. Nor for Howard Sprague. But did rather enjoy when the Darlins came to town Otis and Ernest T. Plus I believe that the Andy Griffith show produced the only child actor that didn't grow up to be a drug addicted has been. -- Submitted By: (adammundy) on June 14, 2010, 6:50 am

We are the World Remake Haiti - Random Topics
Much like Diddy's take on Every Breath You Take to remember the Notorious B.I.G. this was just indolent and disrespectful. If they really cared, an original or at least more surreptitious sampling song would have been used. My case in point: Crossroads by Bone Thugs N Harmony to remember Easy-E. This one more than pales in comparison to the original. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on June 13, 2010, 7:26 pm

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Movie Series
I will go against the grain and say all in all I prefer the Burton remake. It just seems more in Roald Dahl's tone, had a better visual flair but I do agree the flashbacks were unnecessary. Both performances are different takes on Willy Wonka and both show his unkind, eccentric nature. I reckon most of the disdain of the remake is on the belovedness of the original, which should not be. This is just my honest opinion. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on June 13, 2010, 6:24 pm
