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.

Community - TV Shows
Proof that NBC can still make quality television if they put in the time. I wasn't completely sold on Community at first, but it got better and better over time. Joel McHale's sarcastic wit from Talk Soup fits in perfectly on this show with his study group including Chevy Chase (who definitely is showing his age), the beautiful Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown as the matriarchal Shirley and Danny Pudi and Donald Glover as the hilarious duo Abed and Troy. If you missed it this season, catch up on it and watch it next year. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 14, 2010, 7:57 am

American Bandstand - TV Shows
American Bandstand was MTV before there was MTV. Top 40 acts come on to perform their latest songs while teenagers dance and Dick Clark does the interviews and gets the reviews. When MTV launched in the early 80s, American Bandstand lost its luster. Since people could watch their favorite Top 40 artists 24/7 (remember, at this point MTV was a music channel), people didn't need to tune in all the time. That's why I voted for the MTV launch as the boning the fish moment, because it lead to Dick Clark's departure and the show turned into a nostalgic relic of simpler times. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 14, 2010, 7:45 am

I started watching this show on Netflix about a year ago. I literally stopped it in the middle of the 3rd episode because the dialogue and acting were so incredibly bad. The creators of the show obviously thought that having people with specials powers was enough to get people to watch, so they didn't really have to try too hard make it good - which is a shame, because it should have been a great show. -- Submitted By: (raskolnikov) on May 13, 2010, 12:59 pm

This show makes me laugh out loud at least twice per episode, though the earlier seasons are better than the later ones.

kingbk: Could be, but a housewife-predominant daytime audience dosn't explain why the gender balance was pretty even for most game shows.

Wheel of Fortune - TV Shows
Wheel of Fortune still rocks, even though the "theme weeks" are generally lame. As for the "RSTLNE" complaint, I've noticed that the Bonus Round puzzles have gotten HARDER since they started spotting the contestants those letters. Whoever's selecting the Bonus Round puzzles seems to be going to a lot more trouble to make sure they have at least one rare letter in them, or no Es or As at all, etc., to throw at least one extra curveball at the winning contestant so it isn't a cakewalk. I've been watching the show since I was in grade school, and even I only figure out the Bonus Round puzzle about half the time -- even when the contestant chooses the same additional letters that I would have. The Bonus Round is **still** a challenge, and the game still rocks! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 10, 2010, 7:16 pm

Angry Video Game Nerd, The - Websites
Hasn't boned yet, but it could soon. James has done a terrific job turning what were personal video game rants on YouTube into a great web series that is creative and funny. His nerd persona is totally vulgar in a hilarious way and the nostalgic factor is awesome. I don't dig episodes that talk about newer games as much because I don't think that's what the show is about or the audience it's aimed for. I'm starting to wonder how long this can continue, though. Most of the really bad games from yesteryear have been reviewed and based on some of the more current videos, it seems as if he's starting to run out of ideas with his show or maybe getting bored with it. If that's the case, he should hang it up before it goes on too long. Repetition could be the cause of fish boning with this show, but it hasn't quite gotten there yet. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 10, 2010, 5:09 pm

Wheel of Fortune - TV Shows
Wheel of Fortune has done enough small changes without completely changing anything to remain relatively bone-free. I don't like the new puzzle board, but it makes sense to keep up with technology and cut down on taping time. The theme weeks get on my nerves. I miss the theme songs "Big Wheels" and "Changing Keys". Vanna's getting older, as is Pat. The gameplay is much better with contestants winning cash instead of having to buy worthless junk. I don't like how the dumbed down the bonus round in 1988, spotting the contestant R,S,T,L,N,E, which remains in effect to this day. However, the show remains just as strong as ever. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 10, 2010, 3:46 pm

Dick Van Dyke Show, The - TV Shows
Really funny show that has aged well and still makes me laugh to this day. I liked that Carl Reiner voluntarily ended the show after five seasons instead of going on and on. I do think the show boned the fish, if it did bone, during the fourth season. Brady, the egotistical star that before was never on camera, suddenly was always on camera. It brought him down to the same level as the other characters and the show was just not that same after that. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 10, 2010, 3:39 pm

I'm a huge game show fan (see my other BTF comments if you need proof), but I never liked this one. The strategy of voting off the smartest always backfired on the contestants.

Mythigator, I have no idea why there were more female contestants than male contestants, but my fiancee noticed the same thing when we watched the show this morning on GSN.

Card Sharks - TV Shows
I remember seeing the 70s version as a kid, and one thing I always wondered about was why there were never two men as the contestants. It was two women the majority (about two-thirds, IIRC) of the time; the rest of the time, one man and one woman. Never two men. Did the show go to that little trouble to recruit male contestants, or did it just have that little appeal among men who wanted to go on game shows? If anyone has any info about this, I'd be interested in hearing it. As for the show itself, the 70s version still rocks. I haven't seen any of the later incarnations so I can't speak to those, but I'm curious about WHY the 2001 version was a stinker? Again, anyone with info, please share. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 10, 2010, 7:28 am

Press Your Luck - TV Shows
The original 80s version never boned. It was mindless game show action at its best, on at the peak of daytime game shows before they started dying out. Lights, loud sound effects, hyper contestants, big prizes... totally awesome. The show boned when it returned in 2002 on GSN. Todd Newton did a commendable job as host and the set had a good modern look. However, they eliminated one of the question rounds and big board rounds, there were many more prizes than cash squares due to the smaller budget, no returning champions and the board was less confusing when it was in a regular square shape than the strange shape it had on this version. Plus I felt the double whammies were kind of juvenile. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 10, 2010, 1:51 am

Great cartoon that taught lessons and morals without being boring, dull or preachy. The kids acted like kids and the show had lots of comedy.

Gen Y members like me have problems facing us now but we had it too easy for too long and from what I have seen with today's terrorism fears and sustainability challenges, I fear society has become too much about blaming the other person.

Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The - TV Shows
The Season 4 Finale I think is when the show boned the fish. Originally this was scheduled by NBC to be the series finale, but they changed their mind after they and Will Smith received tons of mail to keep the show going. They did, but the last two seasons weren't as good. The ratings dropped considerably, a baby was added to the cast (never a good sign), Vivian changed, everyone was older, the Will/Lisa storyline was cheesy and the show was starting to show its age. I think Will returning home to Philly would have been a great way to wrap up the show, but it went two seasons too long afterwards. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 9, 2010, 3:21 pm

Like most TGIF sitcoms from the 90s, this show was never that great to begin with, but there were times where it got worse. When Cody left the show, the writers scurried to find ways to fill the void. This included giving Carol a coworker (Jean-Luc), Frank a partner (Flash), Dana turned blonde and got really dumb in the process, Mark went from geeky nerd to horny weirdo, and worst of all, Baby Lilly was added to the show, miraculously aged and turned into an annoying part of the show. By the time the show moved to CBS, the fish was digested. Cody made a small comeback, but it was too little, too later. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 9, 2010, 3:13 pm

The NY/ NJ war never occurs and while it had some good moments in season 4, it wasnt the first 3 seasons.

That Guy with the Glasses - Websites
Nostalgia Critic used to be one of my favourite video reviewers. But in retrospect I think his last really good review was Superman 4: The Quest for Peace (mainly because he had an interesting competitive rapport with Linkara). His Star Wars Holiday Special review seemed to catch him at a downer where he just didn't have the passionate enthusiasm that makes his reviews inventive and satisfying. Then this January he did the Arnold marathon, and he picked some of the least inspiring films to review, and would even give up halfway through Junior to do a music video rather than review the film. It was like he was just running out the clock now and didn't actually have anything to say. There was the odd pick up, like his review on Conan or Battlefield Earth but finally he reviewed Drop Dead Fred and didn't even seem to 'get' the film, seemed to pad the review out with ridiculous assertions that seemed to almost deliberately be missing the point, and ended up doing a review that was dumber and shallower than the film he was slating, and I just knew he had lost it. It was quite simply his worst review ever. Gone was the sense of heart and passion, of this being a therapeutic exercise for him, the sense of genuinely sharing the viewing experience. Instead he just felt like a superficial trademark version of himself, corporate, routine and depressingly conservative. It's a shame but he used to be so good. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on May 8, 2010, 7:44 pm

Parker Lewis Can't Lose - TV Shows
PLCL was my favorite show at the time. It was amazingly funny and entertaining until about midway through the 2nd season. Season 1 was full of great episodes whereas the 2nd season became hit and miss. Then things really started going downhill when Parker got hooked up with his girlfriend Annie. He became lame and wimpy and stopped doing anything cool. There were still a few shows that were well done in season 2, but it was really starting to go downhill. Season 3, -don't get me started. It was a complete waste of time, just plain awful. Nothing was even close to the original show. It was a completely different show, not worth watching at all. -- Submitted By: (Lt_Shaughnessy) on May 8, 2010, 11:00 am

MTV: Music Television - Random Topics
I watched MTV back in the early years up to 84 when I didn't have cable anymore. In those days it was very addictive, I could watch it all the time to see all the cool and crappy video's that the bands were putting out. In those days there wasn't an inexpensive way to make great videos (DV cameras and iMovie) so only a few bands actually put out a video. Now even low budget bands put out videos, but only on youtube or break.com . I keep looking for a channel to watch videos, but once I find one they go through the same tranformation. MTV2 was music for a year or two before it mirrored MTV. Fuse used to be decent for music, but it too has gone the same direction. I don't understand what is going on. At least Youtube video quality is getting better and better so I can see bands release videos there. Is there any other channels or websites that are dedicated to music videos? I would like to know.

Dragonball Z - TV Shows
Dragonball Z is one of those odd cult shows that nobody watched when it first came out (maybe because most stations stick it at odd times like at 7am when most kids were not up on Saturday mornings) but then they did reruns of the dub on Toonami and it became popular. It wasn't bad show in the beginning. The animation was top notch but many kids shows had great animaiton at the time during its Toonami run and they . When Funanimation realized they had a hit, they reduce the censorship on it and try to abit more faithful to the original Japanese. However there were problems which were dicussed in other posts. A single battle told 10 to 20 episodes to finish, and the same plot devices over and over again. My personal buffs were over the background scences and use of characters. Backgrounds seemed the same constantly. Green with lollipop trees and hills and green water and more green stuff. Everything green. Z fighters were almost useless and unused when through they were important characters in the Dragonball show. Toriyama should have them defeat some of the strong enemies once in awhile. It shouldn't that bad. Kurin of the Z fighters seemed like the only one who is non-Saiyan or Namek that could have hold his own even against some of the deadly enemies and he was relevant to the plot. However it became the Saiyan show with Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Goten, Trucks and whatever thing Toriyama and others dreamed up to milk the cash cow. If Toriyama decided to off Goku without revive with the Frieza saga and end it, or focus on Gohan as main character, the show might have been better. -- Submitted By: (Ani) on May 7, 2010, 11:52 pm

American Gladiators - TV Shows
American Gladiators was an awesome show to watch. Two contests of men and women racing around and trying to earn points so they go to the finals. I felt sorry for the contestants because it seemed like the gladiators were too brutual and violent with them through it was suppose to be fake as WWF but that was what made it great: THE VIOLENCE!!! XD. Most remember contestant was the one woman who was replaced a injured contestant and won the finals. Great moment. I don't know if it was early eposides or later but the use of the cheap sets with the black blackgrounds were not good. I wanted the stuff of Romea and loud large audidences, not a cheap TV studio -- Submitted By: (Ani) on May 7, 2010, 11:29 pm

Unsolved Mysteries - TV Shows
I loved Unsolved Mysteries when I was a kid and watching it on LifeTime. The most rememberable episodes were. The super natural ones were Roswell and the men at the camp being kidnapped by aliens. They use to scare the crap out of me. I don't think it jumped but when they changed their graphics in 90s, it wasn't as enjoyment. -- Submitted By: (Ani) on May 7, 2010, 11:20 pm

Love is in the heir - TV Shows
This show was awful. Was this bimbo really a princess? Supposedly she was Iranian and lived in London. How did she manage to have a perfect American accent? -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 7, 2010, 8:41 pm

Schoolhouse Rock! - TV Shows
This was such a good thing to have on TV. Kids are so ignorant nowadays. Did anyone ever see the spoof of it on The Simpsons. Hilarious! -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 7, 2010, 8:39 pm

This show was funny, but I am surprised it was on as long as it was. I really only knew it on USA Network reruns. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 7, 2010, 8:37 pm

ALF: The Animated Series - TV Shows
Am I the only one that finds it depressing realizing that most of the people we saw in this show (not to mention about everything on the planet) would likely be dead or destroyed before we got to the time line of ALF? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on May 7, 2010, 5:33 pm

Newlywed Game, The - TV Shows
The show boned when Bob Eubanks left. He was the right amount of sleaze and cheese to make the show fun. Also now that contestants don't have to be subtle with their answers takes away a lot of the show's charm. Carnie Wilson's version on GSN isn't bad, but she's not even close to Bob Eubanks in the hosting department. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 7, 2010, 2:08 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
You have a good point, but ranting against annoying cartoon characters was one of the things JTS was all about. People would rip into Scrappy Doo, Snarf, the Smurflings, etc. With JTS being ruined, we now do it here on BTF instead. Lisa was just lucky (unlucky?) enough to get her own topic. As for Michael Moore, he's been bashed pretty good, and Ralph Nader doesn't have his own topic yet. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 7, 2010, 11:12 am

South Park - TV Shows
It's turned from a cartoon to a wacky parody of current events, but it's still fun to watch. It's a shame that they seem to go out of their way for shock humor, though. -- Submitted By: (ElBlocko) on May 7, 2010, 8:32 am

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
What makes Justin Bieber cool is that his music is diverse from other teen stars. Not singling out any specific race, but he has the potential to attract more than his general race by playing this "swaggerific" person. He doesn't claim to be perfect like these other "Disney Musicians" and I guarantee that his transition to be serious won't be as difficult as.....lets say Miley Cyrus. And to whoever claimed that he doesn't write his own lyrics....Beyonce doesn't either but that doesn't stop the masses from liking her music. Anyways, he is a great Rhythm and Blues singer regardless though and I hope he is still doing music 10 years from now. -- Submitted By: (LockeandMasenko) on May 7, 2010, 5:31 am

Pyramid - TV Shows
The Donny Osmond version ruined everything that was great about Pyramid. Donny was a complete cheese ball, the set looked too modern, there were no returning champions, the Winner's Circle was too easy to win, and the tournament didn't guarantee someone would win the $100,000. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 7, 2010, 12:20 am

Double Dare - TV Shows
How sad that fun game shows have been replaced with awful reality shows. This is one of the reasons we watched Nickelodeon: fun game shows. Later, the Nicktoons came along, and we watched those. When Double Dare was canceled, the Nicktoons kept us tuned in. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 6, 2010, 8:25 pm

Disney Channel - Random Topics
Long ago, in the past, when they played a movie, it would be uninterrupted. That changed over a decade ago when they had commercial breaks. Advertising themselves. #1: Look, if you're going to interrupt a movie, it should be from your sponsors, so we know who paid for this program to air. #2: If you're airing commercials from your sponsors, WTF? I already paid to watch this show when I bought the cable/satellite package. So now, I'm paying for it TWICE? #3: Interrupting a show to promote yourself does nothing but piss off your customers. They'll buy the movies on tapes (DVD wasn't available at the time) and you'll lose customers who dump the Disney channel so they can watch their uninterrupted movies on home video. I hoped they would dump the mid-movie commercials, but no dice. That was the BTF moment for me. It kept going downhill from there. Good bye, classics.

Game Show Network (GSN) - Random Topics
Good old Game Show Network bones and bones back more than any other topic: Boned: No more The Price is Right. How do you call yourself the game show network if you can't even show the longest lasting game show of all time??? Boned back: Got other classic shows on the schedule ($25,000 Pyramid, Press Your Luck, Let's Make a Deal, etc.) Boned: No longer on 24 hours a day. Boned back: They added GSN Live for interactive games. Boned: Became GSN, added reality shows, talk shows, and poker Boned back: Went back to a mostly game show lineup in a short amount of time Boned: Too much Deal or No Deal Boned back: Some good originals starting to come out (Catch 21, Russian Roulette, Lingo, etc.) -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 7:59 pm

Political Correctness - Random Topics
I'm not going to say there are no Conservatives who try to censor stuff they deem offensive, but unlike conservatives, when a liberal pushes to censor something, they usually get their way. A liberal's idea of PC is not limited to replacing words with euphemisms ("Little person" instead of "dwarf" or "midget", etc.). If you took kingbk's post and replaced "atheism" with "God", "abortion" with "Pro-Life", and "profanity" with "prayer", it would be a pretty accurate example of liberal censorship. Let me conclude with a lesson from the Simpsons: You can't be for one form of freedom of speech but against another. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 6, 2010, 7:58 pm

Scrabble - TV Shows
Highly enjoyable game show. Chuck Woolery did a great job creating a comfortable setting and it was easy to play along. Plus the array of sound effects can't be beat. The show boned for a bit when it switched the rules to spelling out the answers (check out the mosquito episode to see what I'm talking about), but then it boned back when they reverted back to the old rules. The 1993 edition, though, with it's small budget, wasn't nearly as enjoyable as the original. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 7:38 pm

Sale of the Century - TV Shows
Sale of the Century was a great game show in the 1980s. I love Jim Perry's hosting style and salesmanship skills. The presentation was glitzy and Summer Bartholomew was sexier than Vanna White. However, this show boned the fish when they changed the bonus round. The whole purpose of the show was accumulating money for better prizes and the champion taking the risk of coming back the next day to go for the better prize. Removing that from the show took out a huge part of the drama that made it great. However, the matching bonus round was still better than the final incarnation of it (Ugh). By the time the Winner's Bonus game came in 1988, the budget was cut significantly and the show was dying out. Sale of the Century became nothing more than Jeopardy meets Press Your Luck meets The Price is Right and lost its original purpose. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 7:35 pm

New York City - Random Topics
DolFan, don't worry. I've got plenty of disdain for L.A. as well. Living close to it has made that disdain only grow. You think you wouldn't get sick of sunshine, but when you have to deal with a huge number of flakes, you grow tired of it. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 7:25 pm
