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.

Speed - Movie Series
This is really not even a series at all, they just took the Speed name and tried to "brand" it as a concept after the first film's success. Turned out it wasn't marketable on its own. A similar travesty is when Hollywood takes a successful brand from elsewhere (gaming culture for example) and tries to affix that brand onto some mediocre script treatment like Lara Croft or Monopoly etc. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 1:18 pm

I Dream of Jeannie - TV Shows
High-concept shows like I Dream of Jeanie or ALF get an exemption from some of the usual JTS/BTF reasons because, as a viewer, one needs to accept the stupidity of each show's reality and just go with the concept that this Air Force astronaut is too prudish to take advantage of every guy's dream situation because he's an officer and a gentleman. Shows with genies or witches or extraterrestrials merely have to make their own kind of sense, not make real sense. For this reasoning, I disregard any idea of Day One for such shows except when they just fail to convincingly sell their reality at all. Surface, The Cleveland Show, American Dad and Lost anyone? -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 12:11 pm

2point4 Children - TV Shows
Remembered liking this show even if it negotiated a couple Boning markers. Same Character/Different Actor when the daughter Jenny was recast; then, New Kid In Town when Declan became a classic "cousin Oliver" in the last year. They weren't playing it safe as a normal sitcom and I applaud that. Respect also for wrapping the show once the male lead passed away instead of trying to import David Spade as an uncle or something. Rona and Bill had some classic Lucy & Ethel episodes through the years. Also, the writers were able to get serious - even morbid without feeling like A Very Special Episode. I'll reserve voting until I re-watch my old VHS tapes. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 11:42 am

Home Improvement - TV Shows
This kind of show makes me worry about the audience's mental competence when it draws well for so many years. Similar shows like According To Jim and King of Queens just hovered below the radar, but this was actually a significant pop culture hit with people imitating the character's trademark lines and such. Buffoonery has a place, but, this was an embarrassment to humankind. Day One! -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 11:30 am

A follow-up to PYLrulz's comment about wikipedia's entry on Lisa: There is not a word of her becoming increasingly intolerant. However, I can't say the same thing for Reverend Lovejoy's entry.

Tom Cruise - Celebrities
I was too young and naive to fully grasp the reason why the "love scene" with Kelly McGillis' Charlie and Cruise's Maverick was so awkward when I first saw it back in the eighties. Now, of course, when one considers, the personal preferences of the actors involved... Tom Cruise as an actor is now nothing but a punchline to any number of bad jokes. He's not Hitler though so let's not go overboard - yet. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 11:22 am

Blackadder - TV Shows
With the same caveats mentioned by others I shall also vote "Never Boned" for the programs which gave rise to my user-namesake character Baldrick. The final scene of the fourth series was a fitting way to pay tribute to the grim reality of wartime which had been a source of "over-the-top" humor. "...We are the Dead.

Speaking of PETA's founder, she's also a topic in the celebrity section.

Peanut allergies - Random Topics
In order to try and defend those unfortunates born with a hyper-allergy to such a mild toxin as that found in the peanut legume, our modern culture has, in effect, placed the rest of the gene pool into a anti-nut bubble rather than socially isolating the at-risk individuals. The inevitable effect of this policy will be to foster this genetic vulnerability in the general population. Many of the foods we consume as adults are mildly toxic in some regard - coffee, tea, certain herbs, alcohol etc are used specifically for their mildly toxic effects. Other stuff like raw milk or honey or the way we choose to prepare certain dishes make them slightly risky from a hygiene angle in favor of preserving the purity of the taste or eating enjoyment. We should preserve the idea of Choice in what we eat. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 10:23 am

Dr Pepper - Random Topics
I didn't personally see the episode and it's never to be re-broadcast by CBS due to legal and political pressure, however, one can assume that Dave was making a joking reference to the fact that most US soft drinks made from High Fructose Corn Syrup in place of natural real sugar or sucrose ARE the liquid end result of an agri-industrial process that begins (and one could also say ends) with manure. Liquid manure accelerates the growth of government subsidized corn to make cornstarch which is chemically processed into HFCS. If you can get a bottle of the beverage (same goes for Coke) from an overseas factory (Mexico, Caribbean?) you might like the way it tastes. To me it's just peppermint flavored cola - not a very tasty treat. I'd rather not dwell on the literal version of what was suggested below. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 10:10 am

Charles in Charge - TV Shows
The original family cast and production team was not bad and they were aiming the jokes at two levels - kids and adults. The re-worked show that came back made very little sense for Charles being there as others have noted, also, they seemed to be playing to a lower common denominator with the humor. Somehow the show had some notable guests and co-stars "before they were stars", otherwise, CinC would be barely remembered - except for (Jennifer Runyon) Gwendolyn Pierce. She was fine looking. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 9:41 am

ABC World News - TV Shows
I'm sorry but ever since Peter Jennings died, ABC News hasn't really lived up to much of the way they revolutionized the evening newscast. Charles Gibson has done his best but we all knew that his ultimate retirement was coming for a while and it's hard to say who ABC can even replace him with. And the way I look at it, it might just be better for the networks to reduce their news departments to the weekly magazine shows and let the local channels just take the whole 6/5 central hour for their newscast instead, even they can cover the world news with the help of provided reports from their affiliated network. Meanwhile, cable and internet has become a more accessible source for news and in my case the internet is really all that I need. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on May 21, 2010, 3:11 pm

Sesame Street - TV Shows
Elmo represents a sad reality about the television business. When a TV show is well loved, they look into the reasons behind it, including the characters, and then from there they emphasize the very things they think that everyone loves best. Problem is, the way certain characters are exposed affects the qualities that the show already had and ultimately the show becomes about something else against it's original premise. And either it will become hugely popular and maybe better over time, or the changes end up corrupting the show to the point that no one likes it anymore and correcting the mistake often comes too late to save it. Thing is, Elmo got exposure as he did because there was a favoritism for the cuteness of the character initially, and the producers in their mind saw him as the path of profitability (and believe me Sesame Street is the prime example of commercialism intruding on PBS). The more they showed Elmo, it only resulted in him getting his own segment on the show and then everything else about Sesame Street seemed to become minor in comparison. Likewise the show's format has been altered to fit the rules of the short sighted E/I guidelines. That said, Sesame Street is never going to be the same show it once was, business got in the way. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on May 21, 2010, 2:16 pm

PeTA is in no position to talk about ethical treatment of animals as long as they continue to euthanize perfectly healthy cats and dogs.

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
baldrick - It gets even better where Terry Farrell (the actress who played Jadzia Dax) is concerned. In the series finale, there's a scene where Worf is about to leave the station, and there's a montage of images as Worf reminisces about his time on DS9. In all those images, Jadzia doesn't appear even once -- and Worf had MARRIED her!! The reason for Jadzia's absence was not that Worf was so jaded, but that Farrell wanted scads of money for her image to even be used in a brief flashback appearance. Rather than give her the dough, Paramount evidently collectively decided "The hell with her" and left her completely out of Worf's trip down Memory Lane. That dovetails pretty nicely with your theory about why Jadzia got a redshirt death. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 21, 2010, 7:29 am

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - TV Shows
I agree with a lot of what creatrix said...Seasons 2 and 3 are as good as television gets; season 4 was the inevitable letdown; season 5 it rose again, and was meant to have ended on the "high" note of Buffy's ultimate sacrifice for her sister and the world...but I thought Buffy boned in season 6; Willow became way too powerful and confident - a far cry from the character in the beginning...too far for me. And although its hard for me to say the show totally sucked after season 5 (there were some SERIES high points that followed), it was almost a different show. And season 7 was just crazy...all those potentials and the contrived "Big Bad" of the First...but I still hated to see it end. I probably held out hope that it could recapture SOME past glory...and that is one of the things that made it a great show in the first place...you knew what it was at one time...but all great shows run out of material. But there was more great TV in seasons 2 and 3 (and scattered throughout EVERY season...save, maybe, 7) than most series squeeze out of ten seasons... -- Submitted By: (force26) on May 20, 2010, 9:01 pm

Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson - TV Shows
Yes. Wild and wacky stuff! Johnny eventually gets off the line "I didn't even know you were Jewish!" The Ed Ames Tomahawk incident clip can be searched online. The Carson Tonight Show might have Boned when Johnny began to try doing Letterman-style bits out-of-studio and he was just too awkward and not in his element. "Shower with a Star" may have been an early precursor of this. His classic character bits were great in their day though. Climbing into golf carts with drag race champ Shirley Muldowney in 1986 to race around the studio lot is the type of thing even Letterman will now delegate to a sidekick. Johnny looked very strange doing this. Carson was the master of the clever quip though. Even the legendary response to Zsa Zsa Gabor that they both said never happened - makes sense just because it's the kind of thing only Johnny could have said. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 9:59 am

Sabrina the Teenage Witch - TV Shows
Is there some reason for the bashing of MJH that I'm not aware of? I mean she's not a toothpick or a supermodel but she seems to draw a lot of negative comments about her appearance while actors from similar youth shows before and since get a pass. Was she worse looking than Hillary Duff or Miley Cyrus or Britney Spears' sister for instance? The first year had the best sidekick. Casting her bratty sister as a cousin in an obvious backdoor pilot attempt was lame. The Salem puppet was getting kind of threadbare. Still, it was mostly entertaining up through the magazine(?) workplace year. Do I remember George Wendt as an ersatz Lou Grant? -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 9:00 am

This Old House - TV Shows
True and True. Though you both have very valid points, I didn't exactly hate the change of the show from instruction to more of a wish-list dream-home travel whatever show. There were so many other pure how-to programs going on (some of them local or regional), I'm glad they stepped outside their original mission. I didn't need to see Norm do any more biscuit jointing after the first two times. Bob Vila's departure was timely - he was becoming too arrogant and wanting to shoulder in on the demonstrations which just made them longer not better. The second guy was fine but even the third host is good enough. It's the material that matters anyway, not the host. If they had to move up-market to find novel material, then I'm glad they made that call. This Old House Classics used to be shown somewhere IIRC. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 8:40 am

Don't care about actors' sexuality but the man-kiss on the airplane stairs is either something he just does normally as part of his personal/family culture/whatever OR he was kissing a male lover. If the former, why was it such a "rare" moment? He ought to be doing this everyday like shaking hands for the rest of us. If the latter is true, it's stupid to maintain the lie in these times. Be who you are, man! Congrats on the coming baby with your wife though. Your sex life does NOT affect national security, so it should not occupy such ongoing attention. Things that "just don't add up" tend to hold the public's attention in a very annoying way. When the subject individual advocates a certain life principle (Scientology), he does leave himself open to rebuke. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 8:14 am

Several things. 1. Everybody on ESPN is trying to be like their 90's counterparts, and fail epically at it. 2. Bias. If you are not the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Lakers, or Dallas Cowboys, you don't mean sh*t in their eyes. 3. Poor coverage. Look at their rotation for Monday Night Football. Yikes at times. NASCAR races. In the 90's, they were regarded as the best in covering NASCAR races. Now, they just plain suck. 4. More Bias. Its not as bad as it used to be, but I remember a time when if ESPN didn't cover it, they could care less about it. I remember when NASCAR took its races to FOX and NBC. ESPN treated NASCAR as if it was nothing more than a backwoods hick sport. The NHL was laughed upon the first few years after the lockout.

Very good show but it was never going to keep it up. The storyline of bringing in Macy as a "fixer" to tweak the show was a bit of Art imitating itself on a show where the network had clearly already done an off-season tweak to the show itself by adding a laugh track. This might have actually been done mid-season the first year but I'm too lazy to check now. Still, it was a great self-contained bit of TV archive. I think they handled their "Very Special Episode" quite well and Natalie made me buy her reaction about the "Mary Pat Shelby" incident. That was tough. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 19, 2010, 6:50 pm

Two and a Half Men - TV Shows
I voted for Puberty - Angus just isn't the sweet child-like purity counterpoint anymore. I never minded the crude and crass tone of the subject matter - it usually still gets a laugh from me, however, watching a morose teen drag his feet across the set makes me reach for the remote. Syndicated reruns of the first few years are still good though. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 19, 2010, 6:18 pm

Student Bodies - TV Shows
I liked what I remember seeing of Student Bodies. That's more than I can say about any of the previously mentioned HS-themed shows. For the budget they had, they did a pretty good show. Story- and Character-wise it was well above the passing grade for a youth show. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 19, 2010, 6:01 pm

Hunter - TV Shows
A Very Special Episode - Again? When the show wanted his partner to get raped in a second storyline to boost ratings. Thankfully, Stepfanie Kramer refused on behalf of her character. Was never my kind of show - just a weak amalgam of Rockford Files, Dog and Cat, Baretta, Starsky and Hutch etc. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 19, 2010, 5:45 pm

Eight Simple Rules - TV Shows
John Ritter's passing gave this show an unfortunate short end. He was part of the show, his character was needed. Never saw David Spade's parts, but he probably would not have worked as well as a main character. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 19, 2010, 4:10 pm

Eight Simple Rules - TV Shows
Baldrick, I agree! If anyone had told me that Rockford would AVOID living with Suzanne Pleshette(who played Gramps' estranged wife in the John Ritter memorial ep) but opt to his nephew David Spade, I'd have told asked what they were smoking. Who in their right minds would have preferred living with David Spade over Suzanne Pleshette for any reason?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 19, 2010, 8:25 am

Matrix - Movie Series
crispy... drop the marijuana, lsd, or whatever you are tripping on, and step away from it. The movie series itself. The first one was so mind blowing, and great, that it just stuns one to see how crappy 2 and 3 are. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 19, 2010, 6:27 am

Sesame Street - TV Shows
It's hard to say exactly when this show boned - perhaps sometime in the early to mid-90's. But I'd say that the show experienced a slow, gradual decline between 1985 and 1998. Things started changing for the worse when the show started caving into PC sensibilities, with the first notable example being the decision to make Snuffy visible to everyone in 1985. Next, at the end of the 80's, the show lost two of its guiding forces: Muppet master Jim Henson and composer/songwriter Joe Raposo. Then in the early 90's, they started adding newer, more childish characters like Baby Bear, Zoe, and Rosita. They changed the theme song for the first time ever (not counting the pilots) in 1992, and added the "Around The Corner" neighborhood the following year. Maybe the bone coincided with veteran director Jon Stone's retirement in 1994, since it was around this time that classic segments started rapidly disappearing, to be replaced with new segments that style over substance. Of course, the final straw came in 1998, when they started devoting 15 minutes of the show to the obnoxious inanity known as Elmo's World. This segment still prevails to this day, and the rest of the show has continued down the same path towards overt childishness and style over substance. The current show still has some occasional shining moments (mostly pop culture parodies and/or segments featuring classic Muppet characters), but they are surrounded by way too much obnoxious fluff. -- Submitted By: (mjb1124) on May 18, 2010, 10:14 pm

Mask: The Animated Series, The - TV Shows
It sucked from Day 1 (First episode). The first villains to appear are a couple of slacker dudes who want to get superpowers, so they walk into a nuclear plant (with apparently no security whatsoever), get irradiated, and mutate into Puttything (who has shapeshifting powers) and Fishguy, who significantly went down the evolutionary scale, becoming little more than a grunge version of Mr. Limpet. -- Submitted By: (TVvuer69) on May 18, 2010, 8:05 pm

Eight Simple Rules - TV Shows
It may have worked okay with just Jim Garner doing a kind of "stay away from my grand daughters" thing in Ritter's place but the network suits had to drag Spade on set to do his "business" all over the family casserole. He just didn't fit in. He never does. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 18, 2010, 5:23 pm

2001: A Space Odyssey - Movie Series
Keep in mind that 2001 originally went into production in 1964, and the special effects were being worked on for literally years, long before most people had even heard of LSD. Clarke himself stated that he wasn't into drugs at the time, and I don't think Kubrick was either, so I doubt that it was their intention to produce a light show for the acid crowd. They were trying to produce visuals for an experience "Beyond the infinite", and this just happened to coincide with the peak of the LSD craze. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on May 18, 2010, 3:09 pm

Corn Pops - Random Topics
Shanequia, I've got a question. Do those pops ever soggy enough to sink into the milk? It always seemed to me like eating candied styrofoam! Anyway, glad you liked them so I guess if you hate Tootie Pops (which I like) and you like these (which I hate), it's somewhat fair enough! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 18, 2010, 11:55 am

Unsolved Mysteries - TV Shows
Shanequia, I can't say that I had that problem(sorry to hear that it happened to you). However; when it bought every bogus ghost, psychic and flying saucer story instead of actually trying to find criminals, solve crimes or reunite loved ones, that was kinda it for me. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 18, 2010, 11:44 am

Tootsie Rolls - Random Topics
Shanequia, I always thought they tasted like chocolate taffy myself but only if I have one or two small ones. More than that gets tiresome. In any case, I can't eat them anymore now that I'm due for a dental crown. Oh well. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 18, 2010, 11:42 am

That's So Raven - TV Shows
It didn't matter to me about the star's size but what bugged me about this was that, in the beginning at least, the show had potential to become a good classic comedy (e.g. when she's trying to keep her parents from meeting her teacher at school by faking being her own mother was almost 'I Love Lucy' in caliber). Problem is that it quickly devolved into a live action cartoon and it just seemed as though the writers, performers, etc. got lazy and went that route instead of trying to live up to their potential. Plus the whole phychic deal would have been better off just shot down at the writers' table. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 18, 2010, 11:39 am

New Jersey - Random Topics
Shanequia, Actually 'Old Jersey' (or the original inspiration) is Jersey- one of the Channel Islands a British Crown Dependency in the English Channel (closer to France, though). It's much smaller than its US American namesake but it STILL seems to me as though it would be a lot more fun to explore. Maybe if I get back to the other side of the Pond, I can do that. Follow this link and see if you don't agree: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jersey P.S. It's GREAT having you back! I've missed you! Where have you been?
