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.

Sports Night - TV Shows
Great TV show that wasn't given a fair shake. It had moments where it was toeing with the fish (Isaac's stroke, Dana becoming dumb in the second season, the fight between Casey and Dan, Sorkin getting more preachy with his writing, etc.), but it stayed fresh and captivating. Too bad it was on ABC, where great shows go to die after two seasons. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 9, 2010, 1:04 pm

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
Just wrpped up season #4 with Mrs. Chubby Rain- and it is starting to get weaker, less time on the crime aspect of it, and more on the stupid storylines of Furio's non romance with Carmela- horrible- the endless AJ and Meadow saga - who cares- and the removal of Ralph Ciafretta- who left the show as he came - without warning , but in this case in a lame fashion. The NY/ NJ war never occurs and while it had some good moments in season 4, it wasnt the first 3 seasons. And the missing russian storyline starts to bother the viewer- where is the russian's best friend who Tony deals with- does it never come up? Poor writing. The bone is surfacing. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 9, 2010, 12:53 pm

Hugh Hefner - Celebrities
I've watched that show a couple of times just out of curiosity. Hugh is quite dated to say the least. His wardrobe and the decor around the mansion is 70's. They have conversations like "When did you lose your virginity". Cool topic in the 60's maybe, but it's boring now. Those bimbos never stick around either. -- Submitted By: (Camillaboy) on May 9, 2010, 10:47 am

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.

Dharma & Greg - TV Shows
Dharma and Greg was funny on how a free-spirit and a plain-work addict person tired to make a marriage work from the start when it was accident. Dharma was funny and interesting with her going crazy things while Greg is trying to make Dharma stop for her own good (which is mostly true). Kevin Sobro and the car accident killed the show. I stopped watching it after that. -- Submitted By: (Ani) on May 8, 2010, 12:06 am

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.

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.

The show boned when Bob Eubanks left. He was the right amount of sleaze and cheese to make the show fun.

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

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.

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.

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

Originally I really liked Around the Horn when it was about geographical biases and had a good mix of sports reporters. I also thought Max Kellerman's version was more fast paced and had a better scoring system. When Stat Boy Tony Reali took over, the show lost some of its appeal. He's not a bad host, but sometimes he's too laid back and easy going for a show about competitive banter. Also the show relies too much on the same reporters over and over again (Jay Mariotti, Woody Paige) or uses ones that are too self-indulgent (Ugh J.A. Adande...) The whole geographical bias aspect has also been phased out over time, which is too bad. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 1:57 pm

Feeney follows them EVERYWHERE. 7.) Corey becomes really neurotic. 8.) The show got too serious. 9.) Continuity errors (Shawn had a sister, then he doesn't, Corey didn't like Topanga until they were teenagers, but they are shown as life-long best friends, etc.) 10.)

Wonder Years, The - TV Shows
The show was at it's best when Kevin was cute and charming. When he got older and more awkward, the show lost its charm. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 8:51 am

VH1 - Random Topics
@ Stephanie. I concur, and a lot of those "shocking moments" listed more raised "so what". VH1 needs to diversify music as well and focus less on being "cool" to the new generation. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 6, 2010, 5:20 am

Zebra - Music Groups
I beg to differ on the "Second Album" reason. Bears, No Tellin' Lies, Takin' A Stance were solid offerings and 3.V's Time is one of the best Zebra tunes ever -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on May 5, 2010, 9:09 pm

Match Game - TV Shows
Part of the charm of the original Match Game was how un-PC everyone was and how much they tried to push the envelope with double entendres. Gene, Brett, Charles and Richard had terrific chemistry and the whole carnival was a big party full of drinking, smoking and laughter. By the time Richard left in 1978, things slowly changed. McLean Stevenson wasn't Richard Dawson, Gene started aging and Brett and Charles banter got a bit over the top at times. I didn't see the show in 1983, but I did see the 1990 and 1998 versions. The 1990 version was okay, but it didn't have the humor or the chemistry of the cast of characters. By 1998, there was no "envelope" really to push for, so the charm of the double entendre was all but dead. Michael Burger didn't have chemistry with the panel and the panel (with the exception of Vicki Lawrence) was overly crude and annoying. Plus in the PC days of the 90's, the whole atmosphere just wasn't the same. Another show like Family Feud that was meant for the 70's. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 5, 2010, 7:59 pm

Scooby-Doo (CGI/Live action films) - Movie Series
@MacFan95. Those "adults-as-kids" adaptations usually have poor continuity from the original source anyways. On the topic of the film series, the second one makes the first one look great. However, one good aspect of this series is that it made a great ride at MovieWorld. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 5, 2010, 6:07 pm

Pyramid - TV Shows
Dick Clark was such a professional and in total control of this show. He knew when to build suspense, he knew when to comfort contestants, he knew when to be honest, he knew when to crack a joke, he knew when to keep the show moving or slow it down. He had total and complete control. Sure, the "perfect clue" moments after a Winner's Circle loss were rather annoying, but forgivable. John Davidson had no control and Donny Osmond was way too cheesy. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 5, 2010, 5:59 pm

Kid Nation - TV Shows
This is absolutely no way to teach the children independence. Reality TV is a god-awful concept, and I have gotten less respect for it for this. There is no creativity behind it but to see how you can humiliate anyone. The kids in these shows will grow up scared. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 5, 2010, 5:55 pm

Family Feud - TV Shows
Richard Dawson's version will always be the best version of this show. It was less about the game and more about his interaction with contestants. It also happened to be on at the right time during the 70's before the PC police was in full effect. When Dawson was fired and Ray Combs took over, he did a fine job, but he just wasn't in the same category as Dawson. Neither was Louie Anderson (ugh), Richard Karn or John O'Hurley. When they brought Dawson back, he was more subdued, stopped the kissing and the 70's attitude and humor didn't mesh well with the 90's, probably why he only lasted one year. You wonder why the show goes through so many hosts? Richard Dawson's everlasting influence on the show. Even though it has been over 15 years since he last hosted the show, it won't ever fully go away. The shows best days were with Dawson and its best decade was the 70's, both of which are long gone. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 5, 2010, 5:52 pm

Malcolm in the Middle - TV Shows
While it didn't bone completely, MitM started smelling when Malcom turned into the new Reese. They could have just re-titled the show Dewey in the Middle at that point. Jamie didn't help the cause much, either, but his inclusion isn't as bad as Malcolm's personality change. -- Submitted By: (ElBlocko) on May 5, 2010, 3:46 pm

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero (1985) - TV Shows
You might want to check out the 2009 cartoon, G.I. Joe: Resolute. It's about an hour long and they purposely broke all the "no killing" rule. I think their tagline was, "No lasers, no parachutes, just all out action." http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B002NXSRWK/hokutorenkito-20 -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 5, 2010, 2:54 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
I also hate how she can now easily kick Bart's ass. It's happened in several recent episodes. She even socks him good in the Movie. The two of them used to balance out somewhat, but the writers have emasculated Bart into a stupid, nerdy wimp (remember when Bart was cool? That was a looong time ago.) and elevated Lisa into their own pedophilic liberal fantasy. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 5, 2010, 2:42 pm

Karate Kid, The - Movie Series
The series jumped in Part III. By this point Ralph Macchio was no longer believable as a teenager, Mr. Miyagi's role was reduced considerably, the story line from part I was recycled, and the love story was very weak (probably because of the 11 year age difference between actors.) The fourth one was bad and don't even get me started on the revival with Will Smith's son... -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 5, 2010, 11:18 am

Back to the Future - Movie Series
Still rocks. All three movies were good, even though the second one suffered a bit from "middle-chapter-itis," which is almost inevitable in ANY movie trilogy -- or rather, any PLANNED movie trilogy. BTTF2 was less fun to watch because it was the dark chapter with a cliffhanger ending, but you know what? People said the same things about The Empire Strikes Back, and **that** trilogy ended up doing all right for itself. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 5, 2010, 7:34 am

Disney Channel - Random Topics
Went BTF in the early 2000s. At that time, some family friends of mine who I was seeing a lot of had young grandchildren spending a lot of time in their house, so the Disney Channel was on in the background pretty much all the time and I couldn't help but notice it. It seemed to have a collective case of bratty (and snotty) attitude, and might as well have had as a tagline "We annoy the hell out of your parents and we're damn proud of it." Since then, unless they happen to be showing a classic movie I want to see again (which anymore is a pretty rare occurrence), I just haven't been interested in watching it. No great loss -- it sure doesn't sound I've been missing much! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 5, 2010, 7:27 am
