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.

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

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.)

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

Disney Channel - Random Topics
When Disney Channel stopped being a pay channel and went to basic cable. The programming got worse and worse, plus commercials (ALWAYS self-promotion spots for Disney Channel) started appearing. Slowly the old cartoons and shows disappeared in favor of new things that had absolutely nothing to do with Disney. By 2003, the channel stopped caring about the young children and family demographics and aimed solely at teenagers. The result: Hannah Montana, High School Musical, and many more similar steaming piles of garbage. Just like MTV, Bravo, A&E and many other cable channels, Disney Channel lost its initial purpose and transformed into something unrecognizable and boring. It has long boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 5, 2010, 12:52 am

Back to the Future - Movie Series
I think with this one I'd go with 1, 3 and then 2. One is an instant classic with comedy, fantasy and keeps your interest throughout. Three I liked how it got back to the light heartedness that was missing in the second one. Two was too dark and Marty, although always kind of a wise-ass, seemed unlikable with the whole sports almanac storyline. At least in the other two he was a likable wise-ass. One was a classic, with the other two entertaining. Glad it ended while it was ahead. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 8:04 pm

Ghostbusters - Movie Series
The first Ghostbusters was a comedy classic. I honestly think it's one of the best screenplays ever written. After the film when Harold Ramis and Dan Akyrod sold the rights to just about everything, it lost it's luster. Toys, drinks, cartoons, food, they were everywhere. By the time the second movie came out, the humor was watered down, the storyline was more far-fetched (even for ghostbusters), it just wasn't as good. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 7:59 pm

Beverly Hills Cop - Movie Series
Beverly Hills Cop 1 was an 80's classic. Edgy humor, lots of action, tons of rich people, it represented the 80's more than many other movies during the decade did. Eddie Murphy was young, raw and hilarious. Beverly Hills Cop 2 was a good, not great, sequel. Lots of action and comedy once again, but at times it felt more forced. "Shakedown" wasn't "The Heat is On" and the whole thing felt at times like a rerun of the previous movie. Still liked it and not quite boned yet. Beverly Hills Cop 3 definitely boned the fish. Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson weren't involved, which was the tip of the fish. John Ashton, Ronnie Cox and Paul Reiser not returning caused the series to eat more fish. Harold F's classic "Axel Foley" being butchered caused the series to eat even more fish. Eddie Murphy looking bored and in it only for the paycheck finished half the fish. Stupid plot devices and terrible acting finished another quarter. It no longer being the 80's killed the whole fish. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 7:55 pm

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Movie Series
First one: classic film noir with edgy humor, a dark attitude throughout, and closest to the original comics, which were written in this style. Second one: Got more cheesy and kid friendly (no more cussing, less fights, Vanilla Ice), but wasn't bad. Third one: Got even more cheesy and kid friendly (stupid jokes, even less fights), worse looking special effects and costumes, no Shredder, wooden dialogue, unnecessary plot line (time travel to Japan), characters no longer have any personality or are written in cliches. Final opinion: Series toed the fish in the second film, but was completely eaten up with the third one. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 7:46 pm

Stargate Atlantis - TV Shows
For me, the show started going downhill at the start of the 4th season. Getting rid of Weir and Beckett at the end of the 3rd season and bringing in Carter just didn't make any sense. You already have a leader in Weir, why would the producers want to bring in Carter? And why get rid of Beckett to bring in Keller? Your replacing a leader with scientist and replacing a doctor with a doctor? wtf?! And lets not go behind the scenes with all the politics about Tapping and Higginson. Here you have Tapping who just did 10 years of SG1, and she goes into Atlantis, kicks out Higginson and Tapping only stays with Atlantis for 1 season! I mean, she comes in, basically takes over another actresses job and then leaves to do her own show! Who's getting screwed here? And its not like Carter added anything to season 4. She didn't do anything that Weir could have done! Jumped the shark in Season 4, no thanks to the decisions to get rid of Weir and Beckett at the end of Season 3. -- Submitted By: (buffy) on May 4, 2010, 4:45 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
kingbk, what was with that SD pin anyway? I've noticed it but never figured out what its significance was supposed to be. Anyway ... there's an indie TV station here (Seattle area) which has been showing The Cosby Show in the early morning, airing two episodes a day. After seeing a couple of cycles through the show's run, my take is that while Cousin Pam was the nail in the coffin, the decline started with Lisa Bonet leaving the show and then (after she returned) treating it like her own personal revolving door. It got to the point where she needed THREE screen credits: One for herself, a second for her attitude, and a third for her hairdo-of-the-week. Fortunately, even after those seasons of mediocrity, the show managed to finish with a good finale. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 4, 2010, 7:23 am

Early Urkel: Nerdy neighbor next door with a crush on Laura, a desire to be friend with Eddie, and the penchant to pester Carl Winslow. 3. Later Urkel: Moved in with the Winslow's, went through puberty, got tall, couldn't pull off the nerd thing as much anymore so they gave him an alter ego (Stefan), invents crazy things which cause bizarre adventures for him and Carl, dated Myra, broke up with Myra, Laura falls in love with him, Harriette changes, more original characters disappear, moved to CBS.

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
I loved The Cosby Show right up until about 1990. Early on, it was one of the funniest shows on TV. The episodes like the gold fish, the track meet, Theo's shirt, Theo's earring and the grandparents anniversary were some of the funniest episodes of TV I've ever seen. Cosby in these episodes did a good job having lessons, but not being preachy. This was when the comedy and lessons were at their best balance. Towards the late 80s things started changing. The kids got older, Lisa Bonet left, then she came back, Cosby got more into the show being about black culture (moving Family Ties and putting A Different World in its place) which went against the original purpose, and Olivia and Cousin Pam joined the show. When the story lines moved away from the original kids, Clare and Cosby, it wasn't the same. Cosby and Clare became more smug with Cosby wearing that SD pin for a whole season and both acting holier than thou for the most part. The humor hasn't aged well. The personality of the show is very much 80s-early 90s and doesn't look fresh in reruns. The last episode that made me laugh to tears was the tap-dance challenge. After that, it slowly lost more and more people to the edgy and fresh (at that time) The Simpsons and never recovered. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 5:38 pm

Calvin and Hobbes - Random Topics
Never boned. Sure, I'd love new strips, but I'd rather it end on top than on a decline, and it did indeed end on top. Look at other cartoons like Garfield and you see recycled story lines that are growing stale. The great thing about Watterson's strip is you can read it today and it's just as fresh as it was twenty years ago. The story lines don't age and neither do the characters. Calvin, Hobbes, Susie, his parents, Moe, the babysitter and Miss Wormwood never lost their charm all 10 years of the strip. It's hard to say that with most comics. Bill Watterson's mood swings towards the end got a bit annoying, especially in the 10 Year Anniversary Book, which had more complaining than I cared for, but I didn't see it bleed into the strips. They stayed intelligent, hilarious and enjoyable. Today the comic page is pretty much a wasteland except for the occasional Fox Trot or Peanuts rerun. Blondie, Dennis the Menace, Gasoline Alley, Garfield and the insufferable Family Circus are all showing their age. It's too bad there aren't any new cartoons to step up and take their spot. In fact, one could say Calvin and Hobbes leaving back in 1996 is when the comic page in general boned the fish. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 5:19 pm

Price Is Right, The - TV Shows
The Price is Right is, was and always will be Bob Barker's show. However, Bob Barker himself jumped probably around 1993, when Mark Goodson passed away. It was rumored that Barker only listened to two people: his wife Dorothy Jo (who passed away in 1981) and his boss Mark Goodson. When the last of those two people disappeared, he was completely in control and turned into almost a dictator. Soon came the Dian Parkinson affair, the firing of Holly Hallstrom, the firings of Janice and Kathleen, the firing of Paul Alter, the fallout with Rod Roddy and more. Eventually, Bob got too old. He couldn't hear as well, was more irritable, and had less patience. He left at the right time. I wasn't crazy when I heard Drew Carey got the job (at least it wasn't Rosie, thank God!), but he's getting better and better. The show, which was starting to get stale, has gotten fresh again with new prizes, new set pieces, a more laid-back attitude, special episodes and more. Drew doesn't imitate Bob, he brings his own spin to the show. Think Pat Sajak with a touch of Drew's own Whose Line Is It Anyways? persona and you've got his hosting style. TPIR will always be Bob's show, but Drew is doing a fine job keeping the show strong. It might have boned back. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 2:39 pm

Hearing people swear over and over is annoying. "Ohhh, look at me, I can curse! I'm so funny because I drop s and f bombs!" No, they're just trying too hard to be funny. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 3, 2010, 12:48 pm

Oregon Trail, The - Random Topics
LOL! Homer/Raphael has typhoid fever. But really, what's so wrong about naming them after cartoon characters? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 3, 2010, 12:40 pm

Subway (Restaurant) - Random Topics
I think it's time I speak about the subs themselves. This place is a ripoff. All you're getting is a loaf of bread with a few pieces of meat and veggies stuffed inside. They're so stingy with meat. If you want more, all you'll get is a couple more slices, and they will cost you $1 extra. jconifer7 is right: it's cheaper to make your own sandwich. Fast food can be costly, but at least you're getting more meat with your sandwich. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 3, 2010, 12:37 pm

Michael Moore - Celebrities
The most biased, annoying filmmaker in history. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 12:26 pm

Obesity - Random Topics
Obesity is a problem, a problem that has been blown way out of proportion by the left. Are kids fatter these days? Yes. Who's to blame? First and foremost are the parents. Taking your kids to McDonald's for most of their meals is the problem. Letting kids play video games and sit around indoors is the problem. Letting kids eat junk food on a regular basis is the problem. When I was a kid, McDonald's or fast food was a once a week, maybe twice a week treat. Most of the time I played sports outside with my friends. When I got into high school I was involved. Today as a functioning adult I can watch what I eat, work out, and at the same time enjoy a treat or fast food without it ruining my health. I did this because of my parents, not because of Super Size Me, not because of laws regulating food choices, not because vending machines were taken out of my high school (they weren't), but because my parents taught me a good balanced diet, the benefits of exercise, and at times indulging yourself. People suing McDonald's or demanding that P.E. be taken out of school programs are way off base here. Weird diets, government laws, and hatred towards fast food aren't the problem. Lazy, indifferent parents are the problem. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 11:32 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
When she went from Bart Simpson's foil in the early seasons to liberal mouthpiece after the vegetarian episode. She was always kind of annoying, but much less so when she was ruining Bart's plans than grandstanding for liberal causes. Ugh. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 10:56 am

Swiffer - Random Topics
OK, enough with the commercials, already! The mop hooking up with the broom, the duster hooking up with the bowling ball, the old dust mop catching a bus with all it's luggage....all because they feel rejected. It's stupid and it's getting old. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on May 3, 2010, 9:13 am

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero (1985) - TV Shows
The new IDW comic "GI JOE" is outstanding, check it out if you want to see a good modernized version of this classic property, unlike the crap movie from last summer. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 3, 2010, 7:24 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Also to add. Reading the wikipedia entry for Lisa... Damn!!! You would think the world regarded her as some kind of god or something. Absolutley nothing negative about her! -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 3, 2010, 6:43 am

Rap (music) - Random Topics
My brother listens to rap, but even then, most of the stuff he listens to is the stuff that was around before rap got way over-commercialized and was nothing about cars, jewlery, and hoes. Ineven agree. Don't care for it much, but the stuff from the 80's and 90's is way better than the stuff they package and label as rap or hip-hop today -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 3, 2010, 6:23 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Agreed. Went from adoradle smarty pants, to a very annoying d-bag. Ascwas even said. She is a contradiction of her charachter that was around when the show first started -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 3, 2010, 6:16 am

Socialism - Random Topics
http://www.snopes.com/college/exam/socialism.asp. It appears that story is as old as dirt. Not saying it's true or not though. I'm going a different route. The term, and not the practice, boned just because right wing nut jobs just throw the term around willy nilly. There might be good points with socialism, and bad, like most any political idea out there though. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 3, 2010, 6:04 am

Squirrels - Random Topics
MCS, you've obviously never had your power go out for a day because a squirrel ran up a transformer and got fried. I have. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 4:36 am

Bullseye - TV Shows
I liked what I saw (which isn't much) of the civilian edition of this game show; the "Celebrity" version was okay, but the celebrities slowed the game up so much that on a lot of episodes, there was no bonus game. That hurt the show quite a lot. -- Submitted By: (bmasters1981) on May 3, 2010, 3:29 am

Obama calling Kanye a jackass is the only thing he's done right so far his entire term. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 3:18 am

Just Shoot Me - TV Shows
All I know is, Laura San Giacamono's breasts were HUGE. But after a while even they weren't enough to keep me watching what with David Spade's ever annoying persona. Seriously, that dude's played the same character on different shows for the last 20 years! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 3:17 am

Rap (music) - Random Topics
Wait, Eminem has a social conscience? Since when? Honestly, I'm old enough to remember rap from the beginning and it was *always* trash, only I listened to it when I was a teen because...I was a teen. In the 80s every song was all "I'm from da hood and I kill ten people every day before breakfast and then I screw some bitches and hos then I kill some more people so don't mess with me or you're next!" Then in the early 90s the content actually improved a little but the fad of deliberately NOT rapping in time with the beat started and got on my nerves. Then in the late 90s suddenly it was all about "Look at all my bling, I'm much richer than you! And here are all the hot chicks I'm boning! Be jealous of me!" Ever since then I've pretty much stopped paying attention but even *I've* noticed it's gotten even worse. They can't even call it "rap" anymore, now it's "hip hop" since that sounds less threatening to parents of today's teens. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 3:14 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Robert: the way you described Lisa Simpson's behavior seems to fit almost all liberals these days, especially the extreme hypocrisy part. Weird isn't it? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 3:07 am

Terminator - Movie Series
Johnnydough, you didn't miss much. Some robot disguised as a hot supermodel chick goes back to the future, and THIS time she'll kill off John Connor because she's a super deluxe advanced Terminator or something, Ah-nold is the protector (again) and the third flick ends with Connor and some other chick alone in a bunker while the machines start World War 3. I think. Makes you wonder why the supermodel Terminator was even sent back. Also, I totally agree with whoever submitted the reason about Summer Glau looking like a heroin addict. She's easily the least believable ass kicking chick I've ever seen. Does she even weigh 100 pounds? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 3:04 am

Profanity - Random Topics
What annoys me is when I'm listening to a song that rocks and I'm getting into it and then for whatever reason the band sees fit to slip one--and only one--curse word into it. Either go all the way or don't curse at all, don't give me this one curse BS. It's completely lame to do it once just to say you did it. What are you, 12? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:59 am

Atheism - Random Topics
It's been my experience that atheists are at least as intolerant as any practicioner of any religion has ever been. And they're just trying to brainwash you to their side just like every other religion does. As I said before, this is just another religion disguised as anti-religion. But they don't fool me! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:57 am

Stargate Atlantis - TV Shows
Oh come ON!!! Nobody else voted day One??? An INCREDIBLY lame ripoff of SG1. Here's Rodney the incredibly annoying whiny scientist who somehow winds up saving the day at the end of most episodes--when it was his screwup that created the problem to begin with! Then there's Teyla the Rebel Idealist With A Cause--who also happens to know martial arts like every other stereotypical ass kicker chick in every other movie and TV show these days. Then there's the "stoic warrior guy" who couldn't hold Teal'c's jock. And hey look, there's Amnanda Tapping's character from SG1, only now she's some sort of Superwoman who can do everyone's jobs better than they can! I didn't even really like Weir. And soul-eating space vampires? I'd rather see the Ori again, and I couldn't stand them! Oy... -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:53 am

Modern Family - TV Shows
My friend got me to watch an episode of this show. It's not too bad, but seeing how OLD ED O' Neill looks now depressed me. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:43 am

Pizza Hut - Random Topics
Whoops. I misread MCS's question. The last Pizza Hut I went into had none of the 80s decor. Just a bunch of tables :-( It was sad. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:39 am

Pizza Hut - Random Topics
MCS, the Pizza Huts I went to as a kid had 80s decor because it *was* the 80s :-) I remember such quaint items like Pac Man arcade games and jukeboxes playing whatever the latest 80s hits were at the time. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:37 am

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero (1985) - TV Shows
BTW does anyone else here besides me know they came out with a new GI Joe comic? I don't know if it's still ongoing, but it's the only GI Joe media I know of where some of the Joes actually get killed, and not the "heroic death in a blaze of glory" way either. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:34 am

Rolling Stones, The - Music Groups
Haha, you're the one who said "old and ugly" CharlesKim, not me. LOL But seriously, when people think of the Stones they think of songs recorded up to "Start Me Up" in '81. Songs recorded after that, not so much. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:31 am

Jesse Ventura - Celebrities
Hard to believe that when he first became governor of Minnesota ol' Jesse actually made sense when he said something. I honestly think hanging around too many libbies has turned his brain into mush! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:17 am

Wal-Mart - Random Topics
Stephanie, if you were FORCED to do a group cheer before starting work every day, you'd probably be mean and hateful too! Yes, it's true--all Wal Mart employees are made to gather 'round in a circle and literally do the "Wal Mart cheer" every shift change. I know someone who worked there and told me this, plus I've actually seen it--they sometimes do it right out in the open! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:10 am

Leave It To Beaver - TV Shows
Thanks Stephanie! Glad to see I'm not alone! Since I posted that, we've now seen rallies in favor of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS! The insanity just never ends! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:07 am

Wal-Mart - Random Topics
MacFan 95, why SHOULDN'T all illegal immigrants be deported? People defending the indefensible ought to be a BTF category of its own. Seriously. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:03 am

Daria - TV Shows
Oh MAN...I absolutely LOVED this show, and I somehow missed the original MTV run (probably because by that time I refused to watch MTV anymore, yeah that was it) and only saw the edited reruns on "The N". IMO it wasn't so much the appearance of Tom as it was Daria turning into every other lovestruck chick and then the show ending when the ENTIRE TIME her character was all about mocking people like that. Plus, she broke up with Tom anyway when they were picking colleges so what was the point of The Kiss? I guess the reason I liked the show so much was because in high school I *was* Daria, only male, my best (and only) friend was Jane, but also male, and my younger sister was Quinn to the hilt. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 3, 2010, 2:00 am
