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.

Tiger Woods - Celebrities
I don't think MCS's message was "he cheated, big deal", but more like irritation that the news keeps harping on one string: Tiger cheated, Tiger cheated, Tiger cheated. MCS, the only solution I can think of is to shut off the news program until they finally report news (how ironic, news programs not reporting news). Or get news online. That way, you won't have to sit through ten minutes "Tiger this, Tiger that" for them to finally move on to real news and world events. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 3, 2010, 9:07 am

Daylight Saving Time - Random Topics
Daylight savings time is really annoying. It never fails to throw my biological clock out of order. Why do they keep it? There's no reason to keep DST in this day and age! I also heard that farmers hate DST too. And even though they are not the ones who implemented it, they are blamed for it. Dump DST now! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 3, 2010, 8:54 am

Wikipedia - Websites
Definitely the bunch of know-it-alls swaggering about deleting useful information and slapping "citation needed" on everything they disagree with. They don't seem to care much for first-hand knowledge at Wikipedia either. I hate it when a citation is needed for some event that anyone over the age of 30 probably remembers. And yet if you wish to challenge or remove something, you need no specific knowledge whatsoever. I recall reading an entry on New Orleans sourdough bread. Where it mentions the bread to be more light and airy than most breads, there is a note: dubious - discuss. I took a look at the discussion, thinking some baker would explain why this is an exaggerated claim. Instead, it's just some loser who thought the claim conflicted with the bread also being described as hard and crusty. You have to wonder if this guy has ever eaten bread. And in spite of person after person explaining that it can be crusty on the outside and airy on the inside, nobody had dared to take down the "dubious" notation. Ridiculous. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 3, 2010, 5:28 am

Halloween (Holiday) - Random Topics
Halloween was such a great holiday. As others have said, it was nice to get to tour the neighborhood and get to know your neighbors. I'm sure most of you who trick or treated remembered which neighbors gave out what. Sure, there is a risk of doing it, but if parents are there with their kids than what difference should it make? Going to malls takes all the fun out of Halloween. And no, you do not outgrow the holiday itself, just trick or treating. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on April 2, 2010, 12:55 am

April Fools' Day - Random Topics
I don't mind jokes. I think we all need to relax at least once in a while and have a little fun. I think pulling pranks can be fun as long as the time is right, they're in good taste and you let the person know you're joking within a reasonable amount of time. I however, accept that those three things are arbitrary. April fools gags that have people in a panic are in my opinion, cruel. This especially applies when they don't admit it's a gag for several hours or more. Sometimes when something on a website that I see on April 1st makes me do a double take, I might look at the update date (or the date itself). If it's April 1st, I tend to suspect an April fools gag. That's what brings me to another type of April Fools gag I dislike. When they'll say (for example) that they updated or added something on March 31st. It's annoying hearing/seeing April Fools for things supposedly updated March 31st because it feels like a cheap trick! It gets annoying when websites mess up their entire front page on April 1st with joke material. It might seem funny at first but unless they have a way to access the normal site once you're done laughing (or if it doesn't amuse you at all), the joke can get old fast. In short, I don't mind simple, harmless jokes that they admit are jokes almost right away. What I do mind is ones that aren't so obvious that have have people cursing or feeling horribly let down (in the case of a joke download, promise etc) once they find out it's a joke. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on April 1, 2010, 11:02 pm

Pokemon - Random Topics
I remember getting into it when Blue and Red first came out. I remember when the show came out. I eventually started watching it for a while, getting caught up in the craze like a lot of other people. Like some, I was probably way too old be watching the show and maybe even playing the games. Like a lot of others, by the time we were getting into the second generation, I was moving on or at least was in the process of moving on. I think that once you get down to it, the concept of the games was ridiculous. That they had 10 year olds going out into the world without adult supervision was silly. Training what amounted to magical animals to fight one another -- well, that's a debate that's as old as the franchise. However, I will contend to the fact that the concept of the games is probably no less believable then any other games or game franchises out there. People might say that being able to play online against others and having large competitions is perhaps taking it too far. However, I doubt it's any different then online play in any other franchise. Truth be told, I can understand why people get caught up in it. To list a couple of reasons, the Pokemon themselves are cool enough and having strategy involved in the battles is good. One might say the games are getting too big and complicated and that the original games that at one time perhaps seemed big enough might now seem quaint in comparison. However, one could say the same things for all sorts of other franchises. One might say that people carry on and on about Pokemon, trying to get others (back) into it. But again, one could say the same for a lot of other game franchises. Thinking of these things has me having the need to ask one question. If we didn't see Pokemon as a "for kids" franchise (if you don't see it that way then I apologize) would people be rolling their eyes at it and/or be looking for an out the moment people mention pokemon as much as they do now? I ask this as I find myself gravitating to 'too much of a craze' as boned reason. However, there are a lot of other things that are a craze that don't have the image as being mainly for kids. I honestly wonder if people would be more tolerant of it (or at least as tolerant as they are of others franchises that have perhaps continued on far longer then they really should) if it had a more mature reputation. By that, I don't necessarily mean dark and violent. If anything it could simply mean, if it were more geared towards people of all ages. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on March 30, 2010, 4:07 pm

Titanic - Movie Series
The 1998 movie was the boning moment for me. Since then, nobody has touched the idea of making a film based on the fated ship, and the Titanic has become a joke. It was really stupid of the elderly Rose to throw the blue diamond into the ocean. I know it was done to keep it out of the wrong hands, but she kept it safe all these years...surely she could have counted on her grandchildren to carry on her mission.

Ani3al Planet is slowly redeeming itself in my book, due to the new show "Fatal Attractions"! This show is about freaks who own exotic, deadly animals because they obviously have something to prove. The dude who owned all these big-ass monitor lizards and then got eaten by them is an intriguing episode, to say the least! (Psychologists say it's a psychosis). Frankly, anyone this effin' crazy deserves to get eaten, mauled, poisoned, etc. Then, IF they survive, they should be arrested for putting other people in danger; let alone, putting non-domesticated animals in a position to be eventually put down for eating, or mauling a human! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on March 29, 2010, 11:53 am

Street Fighter - Random Topics
An update of my earlier comment. First good news: since my first rant they have added some non-SF2 characters; a handful of fighters from Alpha and a few from SF3. Also a new character that is actually cool, Juri. Now for another rant. Unfortunately there are no more new characters (that I've heard of) so just only a handful of Alpha and few SF3 characters. And most of the new characters are either detestable (Rufus, Hakan, Seth) or forgetable (El Fuerte, Abel, Gouken). The fighting engine is just a slight update from the one used in 2 and the graphics are at best early PS2 quality. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on March 27, 2010, 11:59 pm

Ghostbusters (Filmation) - TV Shows
I'm voting day one because the show if nothing else was a scheme by Filmation to capitalize on the success of a better production. Even if this was the first group of characters to have the name "Ghostbusters" it was pale in comparison to the movie version, and worse yet kids who know how to read could look at a TV Guide and get the wrong idea of what the cartoon is about. And even though Columbia and DIC had to add the word "Real" to alter the title of their franchise, this legal agreement ended up working to their advantage because they had the Ghostbusters that people knew about, and was convincing enough for people to think "yeah, of course they are the REAL deal." I think Filmation should have invested more time in a better show than becoming bitter about the use of a name, and truth is, a certain classic Disney cartoon would qualify as the original Ghostbusters anyway so what were they getting at? -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on March 27, 2010, 4:17 pm

TV Guide - Random Topics
When I was a kid we had the Prevue Channel - a computerized listing of shows that played pleasant muzak and occasional movie trailers. About ten years ago TV Guide bought it out, reduced the size of the listings to about half, and started constantly playing these god awful annoying presenters and their tabloid news. To top it off, during award shows they would compress the listings to ONE ROW AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN. It gets better: they actually took the channel OFF the basic cable package. But wait! If you pay for a cable box or dish, you can browse through program listings at your own pace! Meaning, like the magazine before it, TV Guide has shifted its focus from an informative directory to a tabloid publicizing and glamorizing Hollywood's glamor and scandal.

For me, FNV still rocks. I watched it in junior high and high school, and in 1985 went off to college where the dorm had a cable package that included MTV, so I was fortunate enough to miss the celebrity guest host era and the gradual departure from the all-video format that made FNV so radically awesome -- please don't mind the momentary drift into 80s-speak! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on March 23, 2010, 9:04 pm

Shield, The - TV Shows
A truly bold and gritty series with interesting and realistic characters in a slowly unfolding drama of street dangers. It shows the challenges of police work and temptation of corruption without being a mindless action-flick or usual network cop drama. It exposed police corruption unashamed, showing that it is most often done for good reasons; 1) to catch the bad guy you can't get to, 2) protect the people doing the dangerous work, 3)correct accidents or mistakes that would hurt good people, etc. There's always the bad reason too; greed. The good people involved in the bad (Lem) are torn up and eventually destroyed by true evil doing the work. The truly evil (Shane) revel in their sneaky power until it consumes them. On the other hand, the mostly bad (Vic) struggle being torn by being both at once, just as the half bad (Ronnie) get left in the dust in the end because they weren't dark enough to survive under the circumstances. The show's creator stated that the evil Vic created in Shane was a monster that had to come back and bite its master. At least by the end, no one walked away unscathed in some way (even Vic lost his kids and wife and career despite avoiding death or prsion). Every aspect of police work was addressed, and no stone left unturned in exposing the fraternity of bad boys, self righteous do-gooders, budding politicians, and generally honest street cops mixed in with the baddies they trick, manipulate and torture "in the name of justice". Too bold for networks, and too unedited for most viewers, so it's likes may never be seen again. Shadows of it try to live on in the new series Justified, and in Sons of Anarchy. -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 3:31 pm

Shield, The - TV Shows
What a truly unique police drama that tackles the big problem and makes you root for the (BAD)-Good guys to continue to get away with doing their bad...I mean, um, good and useful work. It shows how some police corruption is done for good reasons (to put away guys you can't get to playing by the book, or to correct accidents and mistakes that harmed good people, or just avoid bad consequences for people doing a risky job in a rough world). But once the characters fall down that hole of writing their own rules and doing whatever they please, they can't get out. Truly good characters (like Lem) can't handle the effects of their evil and get stamped out by the truly bad. The truly bad (Shane) eventually are caught-up with, but the half good (Vic) are torn between both sides flopping back forth just trying to -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 3:16 pm

South Park - TV Shows
The opposite of boning, it gets better the longer it goes(depsite some stinker episodes in any season). The original seasons are childish and boring potty-humor, and some current ones are hilarious satire of current events, TV/movies, politics, celebrity stupidity and every topic that makes American culture so unique. Okay, they still do some cheap shock-humor stuff that can spoil a good satire episode, but whatever they make fun of (Dog whisperer, World of Warcraft, paparrazi harrassing Brittney Spears, etc) still carries the show. South Park's main problem is that the episodes only work when current, and the joke is lost even a few years later (i.e. the class mascot election episode was really about Bush v. Gore; the fact that the nation had to choose between "turd sandwhich" and "giant douche") and just isn't that funny years later. Still, South Park is a thermometer that reads the temperature of pop culture stupidity, may it live for another 10 seasons to make fun of the stupidity in our lives. -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 3:07 pm

Tour of Duty - TV Shows
A classic example of network interference with good show writing. Season 1 tried to be drama of the soldier's troubles dealing with the war and a Platoon-for-TV take on the bad stuff Americans did in the war while trying to do right or just follow orders, and the old "War turns good men into dogs" problem. However, then the China Beach romance drama Vietnam show came onto the scene and Season two tried to add love interest and drama into the show to fight China Beach. As if the viewers of a serious war drama for men were the same as the romance-drama viewers of China Beach just because both shows took place during Vietnam war. The network diddled with the show to keep the wives from fighting the husband's show. But then that was not enough and the networks decided that these real-to-life characters should be super soldiers instead. This squad of usual guys drugs into the war were relabelled as Special Forces and sent on missions (without a long period of special training for such tasks). The next thing the viewers knew, their drama of the everyday soldier turned into an not-credible action show and lost the human connection that made it great TV. The Network boned this fish trying to appeal to a wider audience, and by pandering to Rambo, they lost touch with what made it a great show in the first place. -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 2:55 pm

Alias - TV Shows
Like Heroes, this is a series that came on very strong and then faltered. Each season was worse than the one before, with ever stranger development of the espionage universe. While the Rimbaldi artifact plots during the seasons weren't all bad, what it led up to was just odd (and probably not what the original plan was - but a rewrite when writers and creators left the series). What is worse is that they started relying on the old "we kill a character now, but oh no, they're alive later" technique of bad story writing. Everyone interesting is killed and brought back to life in one way or another at least once (and if you follow backstory, maybe twice). More bad writing crept in like changing bad characters into good then bad then good, etc. Writing like that just betrays the audience, and I am sad to say that it was overdue for cancellation by the end. -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 2:44 pm

Space:Above and Beyond - TV Shows
Another great Sci-fi show cancelled by the networks long before its time. The characters were interesting and the effects good, and the universe was showing some depth and complex history. While they killed off some good characters in the finale, this series was good about being true to a wartime drama - you can't have soldiers in a desperate war and keep the whole squadron alive all the time. It was a little odd when you think about it that the human armed forces liked using their fighter pilots to be space marines now and then, but the on-planet action was where a lot fo the better plot developments occured (and this problem is not unique to the series - see Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, etc.). The show was popular with everyone I knew, so it was too bad there was not at least a season 2. -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 2:39 pm

Babylon 5 - TV Shows
One of the great things about the series is that it made interracial (space alien to human) personal-cultural-professional-government politics play out in detail while being interesting to watch. That is aside from being a groundbreaking science fiction series with (at the time) stunning computer graphic effects that helped pioneer their use in film and television. The basic plot lines of every character and culture were planned in advance years before production by the head writer/creator, and it showed throughout production without retroactive rewriting of the show in later seasons to fix inconsistencies ("ret-conning"). Not as "preachy" as Star Trek with it's morality, but still had a lot to say about natural tendencies of people and governments and the nature of good versus evil. Some of the acting (especially early on, I felt) was not that great. However, the depth and detail of the universe made it interesting despite some weak performances and budget costumes on occasion. Who would have thought that a politcal and personal debate between various aliens and human cultures in between space wars would be interesting television? -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 2:34 pm

Garfield (comic strip) - Random Topics
I hear ya AndyC. Garfield became too human and became more or less a boring version of Heathcliff. Unfortunately, the others changed for the worse. Odie used to be just a regular dog then he started to become somewhat anthromorphic and became dumber. Jon used to be just an average guy then he became an extremely weird nerd. It used to be Irma who would be weird until she disappears from the strip. Lyman, Odie's original owner, mysteriously disappeared from the strip to never be heard from again. Garfield's girlfriend also seems to have disappeared. I haven't seen Nermal in a long time so I'm assuming he too vanished. I wish it was good like the pre-late 80's version but it is not. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on March 23, 2010, 12:08 pm

Unit, The - TV Shows
What started out as a good military drama with espionage angles and good writing deserved cancellation mid way through the third season. So now the wives are forceably relocated secret agents and the army essentially forces infants and young kids to live apart from their mother so they can use her in a domestic sting? Did the army draft the wives and give them a crash course in espionage so that they could hang out with their husbands more? It was odd enough that the Unit adopted the "Red Cap" lady character in (as if the elite Delta Force unit would just take in regular army soldiers as operators because they were fond of them after helping in a mission). Then it really got silly; Jonas is tasked to steal the spear that stabbed Jesus from some monks and has to return it for karma so Mack can come back to life? (What does that plot-line have to do with espionage military drama - this isn't a magic artifact type of show). Some one in production de-boned the fish, half the meat and then tried to repackage it as rotten boneless chicken. -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 12:12 am

Battlestar Galactica 2004 - TV Shows
I wonder which of the writers thought it was a good idea to keep changing main characters into cylon double agents? It became a joke "Gee I wonder who is a Cylon this week...". It was dull enough during the New Caprica occupation section, but then just got silly. A couple of agents are okay, but soon the list is Tigh, Tyrol, Sharon, Starbuck's husband, Ellen (tigh's wife), aside from the other six. For that matter (I am a few episodes from seeing the end as I write this) they're are leaning Starbauck towards being a Cylon (corpse in crashed ship on planet, so I guess she really did die in her ship's explosion many episodes earlier and the one that returned is the next version of her). Either way, the fish was boned when everyone seemed to be a cylon and I hear the ending is controversial so I wonder if the last episodes are worth it... -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 23, 2010, 12:03 am

Heroes - TV Shows
The first season was a stunning well-written thrill ride with lots of room for development, but it fell victim to the writer's strike and cut the second season hastily in the middle with a rushed ending to wrap up some season 1 prophecies. From then on it was never on track, everyone time travelled back and forth and characters coming from the future into the past were completely different (evil Cheerleader & Sylar's a nice guy with a kid, etc.). It fell apart trying to be so clever that it became a random tangle of time-travelling alternate realities and dying villains and heroes who are still in the show (who cares how, come up with an excuse to write them back in). It pained me, but we stopped watching somewhere in third season and didn't look back. -- Submitted By: (Evan227) on March 22, 2010, 11:54 pm

Ellen (TV series) - TV Shows
I'm probably one of the very few people who became MORE interested in the show after she came out and the show became about lesbians. I know this was never intended, but I liked seeing how 2 women carried on in a relationship just like everyone else. It de-mystified it, removed the taboo... you got to see that lesbians go through all the ups and downs that straight people go through. I never thought Ellen was funny, so her show was on when there was nothing else on to watch... I guess thats why the twist in the show's theme really worked for me. -- Submitted By: (KaseyAkira) on March 22, 2010, 2:09 pm

Dragonball Z - TV Shows
The show became an exercise in tedium, everything revolved around "power levels". Nothing else mattered... not place, environment, martial arts skill being used, none of that... just power levels. "I have a power level of 3 MILLION!" Oh yea? Well my power level is 3 million... AND ONE!!! "Oh no! U must be bluffing! I are dead then!" This eventually departed from all sense and reason. Getting a power level of 1 million turned you into some sort of golden heavenly God like warrior. Getting a power level of 2 million made you an even more impressive, more beautifully drawn, muscular God warrior, and so on with 3 million and 4 million and all that, getting you to another "level" of super saijin. Then... finally... you become SO POWERFUL... your power level is SO HIGH... that you turn back into a monkey like creature????????? WHAT?!?!? How do you go from Golden Glorious God to monkey again??? Is it like a car where if you drive too many miles it finally rolls back over to 0 and starts all over??? The series was canceled after that. I guess even die hard fans couldn't grasp the concept. -- Submitted By: (KaseyAkira) on March 22, 2010, 1:22 pm

Oh, God, I remember that episode! Because Debra was giving Ray such a hard time, he tore them up for her (in doing so, he also screwed his friend, whom one of the tickets belonged to). Even though Debra kept telling him to stop, you couldn't help but feel she was secretly thinking, "Oh, look at how far he'll go to prove his love for me!" Raymond would NEVER have had to do anything so extreme to please his mother, Marie. I bet it proved to many viewers that Debra is the far more manipulative and controlling one, rather than Marie is. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 22, 2010, 10:09 am
