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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

Subway (Restaurant) - Random Topics
For all that Subway is worth, people should just pack their lunch instead. Yes, they have healthy menu items, but they still have one thing in common with other fast food restaurants, they are a money waste. If they truly cared about your health, they would stop selling soda, chips, cookies, and their subs that are over 6 grams of fat at six inches, discontinue footlongs, and serve whole wheat bread only. But as you can tell from the fact that they don't do that, the plain fact is, they are a business in it for money. It's one thing to stop for lunch casually when you are with friends, but don't make Subway a daily routine. Flatten your belly, not your bank account. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on May 2, 2010, 11:31 pm

Definitely Season 4. The writing went from fresh to suck-fest overnight, being a classic case of "New Kid on the Block" in the form of one Rebecca Ramaijn-Stamos (who suddenly became the cover-model for many issues of "Blush" magazine)-- as well as the production-team, which also changed in Season 4. Characters suddenly changed and became even more one-note than usual, to the point where the show finally earned its title and had the audience saying "Just shoot me." -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on May 2, 2010, 8:35 pm

Socialism - Random Topics
An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. The class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism." All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided that since they could not make an A, they studied less. The second Test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F. The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for anyone else. All failed to their great surprise and the professor told them that socialism would ultimately fail because the harder people try to succeed the greater their reward but when a government takes all the reward away; no one will try or succeed. And that, my friends, is why I'm 100% against socialism in our country. I will work hard for myself and expect you to do the same and I will donate and help out the needy when I want to, not when the government forces me to. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 2, 2010, 7:28 pm

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Johnnydough, your description of Lisa's character evolution hit the nail on the head. Lisa complains that no one pays attention to her, but I have a newsflash for her: nobody wants to pay attention to a constant whiner! I love how you called her an "alleged" Buddhist. I guess I'm not the only one who noticed that despite identifying herself as a Buddhist, her views are more in line with that of an atheist or agnostic (feeling the people of Springfield were stupid to believe in angels, among other things. I know the angel statue was fake after all, but that's beside the point). You know how one reason the Simpsons boned is because it became a parody of itself? Lisa's a good example: all the stuff she complained about in the early episodes? She became them herself! Criticizing Homer for changing his religion to one he founded (but it was perfectly OK for her to convert to Buddhism), complaining during Burns' election campaign that she and her family became political "tools of evil" (later on becoming one herself to promote extreme ideals and political views), and I haven't even scratched the surface. I'd be here all day if I wrote them all down. I especially love how Lisa turned her back on the United States by pretending to be Canadian just because Bush was president at the time. Classy. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 2, 2010, 11:28 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Even a lot of die-hard Simpsons fans consider the episode "Lisa the Vegetarian" to be her low point. It wasn't that they had any problem with her adopting a vegatarian diet, but that her ruining Homer's barbecue was both mean-spirited and totally out of character (even though Bart and Homer chasing after the rolling grill was a HELL of a funny scene). -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 2, 2010, 8:31 am

Lisa Simpson - Random Topics
Oh lord, where to begin. She was at first a slightly annoying but likable little girl as you could know someone like her being bright and trying to show insight into modern issues. However, she eventually became less likable and more mean-spirited as the show went along then was manipulative, disdainful and all-but-a mouthpiece for liberal commentary. Lots of bad karma for this alleged Buddhist and a pile of boned not-fish for her. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 2, 2010, 6:05 am

Terminator - Movie Series
The first Terminator was fantastic; suspenseful, well-acted, brilliantly written and you only heard snippets of the future. Arnold was at his best here as the bad guy. The seconds was almost as good; amazing special effects, a stronger Sarah Connor and likable John Connor. You got to like the characters and care for them. It would have been perfect to end there. They didn't, there was a third. The third one was awful, I have not seen all of it but from what I saw it was uninteresting, padded out during action sequences and the characters were far from their likable counterparts (even Arnold was boring). I have not bothered with the fourth. Thus the third was the boning moment and a lesson to be learned is to leave it to the original creators; in this case James Cameron. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 2, 2010, 4:42 am

Scooby Doo - TV Shows
Just to clarify what previous posters have talked about. First, Scrappy Doo was added. Then there were Made for TV Movies with just Shaggy, Scooby, and Scrappy. The show which you think you saw Daphne return wasn't Daphne at all, but another girl whose name I can't remember with the little Arab boy called "13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo" which was really the death of the good ol' Scooby shows when finally the ghosts were real. It wasn't even close to the original format and wasn't entertaining in the slightest. So, technically there were many incarnations of Scooby Doo, with the newest What's New Scooby Doo? bringing the old cast back. It's probably the best since the original Scooby Doo, Where Are You? -- Submitted By: (Shiddy_Smell) on May 1, 2010, 11:30 am

Atheism - Random Topics
I am accepting of whatever religion and denomination a person chooses to be, even most cults (if a person wants to be a Scientologist, fine). Where it gets less tolerable is when they become militant, violent or just plain disdainful about "other" people's faith. Atheism is a prime example of this. You do not *have* to believe in God, Allah, karma etc but then you do not have to purely believe only what science or Earthly material tells you. There is that issue you try explaining aspects of religion to atheists and there is a chance they will not listen as they think they are right and nothing will do so otherwise. Then there is the faith aspect, where it is only seen as a "religion" thing but that is needed for true belief in anything. I will not say that it boned the fish, as that is insensitive but the idea does need critiquing and close analysis. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 1, 2010, 2:10 am

Matt Groening - Celebrities
I acknowledge that he is a great talent and has brought years of great writing of the Simpsons (in its golden years) and Futurama. However, the fact that the Simpsons is still on is pretty suspicious as he seems not to want to let it go. Also, in some ways he is like Seth MacFarlane not being able to take criticism of his work and directly attacking anyone who says so. If he let the Simpsons retire early at a good stage he would probably have never boned, however he has lost it just at that. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 1, 2010, 1:54 am

South Park - TV Shows
It has had times when I feared that it was becoming awful and would bone, but Matt & Trey have always surprised me and bounced back. The fact that they lampooned atheism is a much welcomed satire in today's anti-religion world. South Park has never taken itself seriously and is one of the best shows ever. Still strong at 200+ episodes and counting. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 1, 2010, 12:01 am

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
I would suggest that some who think the show got too preachy should go back and watch the original movie. The movie was NOT slapstick comedy like the show started out. It was an anti-war movie.

Battlestar Galactica 2004 - TV Shows
Voted boned after New Caprica. The first season was excellent with 12 episodes all of great quality. Then the network wanted season 2 with 20 episodes, at the same price. Season 2 had some of the best episodes, but also the season had the first bomb episodes. The mystery of the show from season three through 4 lost me, almost worse than the X-files dogma lost me. Overall though still one of the best sci-fi series ever made! -- Submitted By: (dauntless) on April 30, 2010, 4:23 pm

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
Voted never boned still rocks! I respect DS9 because the writing got better every season, and also the series was able to really have continuity because the show was set on a stationary location. Overall the best written series of all the Star Trek's, but TNG still is the best series overall. Respected Avery Brooks acting intensity. Nana Visitor complex former terrorist, Dax..... great characters all around! -- Submitted By: (dauntless) on April 30, 2010, 4:17 pm

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
I voted never boned still rocks. TNG was the best of all the Star Trek series. I think Gene Rodenberry's vision of a ideal perfect humanity is very pleasant to watch. There is an argument the darker Star Trek got, ( DS9, Voyager) the more people pulled away from the franchise. Series still holds the test of time! -- Submitted By: (dauntless) on April 30, 2010, 4:13 pm

Star Trek: Enterprise - TV Shows
I voted boned from day one. I think what they tried to do in Season 3 was add some continuity to the show, but they went overboard with a season long arc. Season 4 was the best written season in my opinion with the 3 episode arcs, and also payed homage to the original series feel with the new Executive Producer Manny Coto. Go figure right Berman & Braga take a back seat and the show gets better? For everyone who says I like standalones, well then go watch Matlock or Murder She Wrote. Television has evolved since the 90s. -- Submitted By: (dauntless) on April 30, 2010, 4:08 pm

Stargate Atlantis - TV Shows
SGA first season was the best season of any stargate to date in my opinion. But Season 4-5 boned the fish big time. I never really liked Mckay and hated him by the end of the season.

I agree with MCS that obesity hardly qualifies as an epidemic: it's neither killing people in alarming numbers nor difficult to cure (eating less and exercising more are two of many cures to this so-called "epidemic").

Yep, Henry II gave this car his late dad's tag in the hopes of having something of his dad being memorialized for posterity but instead the name itself became a punch line. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 6:26 pm

Modern Family - TV Shows
I'm one of those folks who actually hated "Married"(yeah, yeah boo me) but thought that the performers could do better stuff. Luckily, like "Eight Rules" did with Katey Sagal and "Samantha Who" did with Christina Applegate, this show's proven me right with Ed O'Neill. I like how this cluster of unconventional families in this one extended family who each have interesting personalities have a true bond despite (because?) of their clashing unconventionalities. Plus, it's good to see Ed (or Jay) actually happily married to a passionate but goldenhearted much younger Latina and a good dad to his smarter-than-but-still-respectful-to-his-folks stepson ! Oh yeah and it's just a genuinely funny show,IMO. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 6:19 pm

Inspector Gadget - TV Shows
Got a little curious about this due to Don Adams (Maxwell Smart) voicing Gadget but did anyone else ever wonder where his brain was supposed to go when that helicopter deal would pop out of the top of his hat? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 6:02 pm

New Casper Cartoon Show, The (1963-1969) - TV Shows
I thought it was a bit boring even as a kid. Living humans see him, get spooked, he pleads that he's friendly then the humans reform and accept him. Repeat theme. However; guess who voiced Casper? Nellie Oleson's mother (NOT Harriet or the actress who played her). Yeah, the voice actress who played Casper gave birth to Allison Arngrim. Don't know what's more odd- that Casper who was a boy ghost was voiced by a living woman OR that the boring Friendly Ghost is connected to one of the most entertaining unfriendly characters in TV history! Another trivia bit that seems more interesting than anything that happened on the show itself. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 5:59 pm

Pac-Man - TV Shows
I never saw this one but would someone tell me why his wife (in the arcade game at least) was called 'Ms. PacMan' instead of just PacWoman? As for the game itself? OK but not as fun as Space Invaders or my personal fave Qix(reminded me of medieval conquests for some reason and I liked the sound effects)! Yeah, it's been awhile since I was into this stuff. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 5:49 pm

Land of the Lost - TV Shows
This one's easy. It boned when Dad fell into the Pylon going no one knows where- and the kids reacted to the loss of their sole surviving parent (with them still stuck in this weird dimension) as though they'd dropped their fries in the lunch line. Yeah, Uncle Jack came along right afterwards and they all acted as though Dad was totally expendable as long they had Uncle Jack to beat back Scarface. About the only episode after that that was any good was when they met Medusa who turned an entire dino into stone before they did her in (guess how). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 5:41 pm

Hard Time on Planet Earth - TV Shows
MCS, As a public service, I'm about to do for you(as well as the other Regulars+ all the 'Net trolls) what I've done for very few folks in my offline life- admit I actually watched this show. Yeah, I'm enough to remember it and was even legal age so I can't use the folly of youth as an excuse for having seen it! Back then, I was somewhat into sci-fi stuff and thought the idea of an alien trying to find out the customs of our planet intriguing enough to watch this. Not a bad premise in itself, right? Well,here goes what this was about, this alien warrior who rebelled against authority gets 'imprisoned' on Earth in a human body. Well, because he happened to steal some mechanic's coveralls for his first clothing and the coveralls were tagged with the name of 'Jesse', this would be the only name he'd be known as. With only the advantage of superhuman strength to help him survive, he was supposed to infiltrate our world observing customs as quietly and inobtrusively as possible. Of course, Jesse being somewhat of a warrior hothead couldn't do anything quietly and often would get into trouble by taking everything quite literally the humans would say to him. Oh, he had a combination nag/companion in the person. .er machine. .thing of this big, talking floating eyeball known as Control who at first was his marked advesary but once Jesse threatened to inform the alien bigwigs of Control's incompetence and offtask behavior, they truced it over to become kinda friends. Of course, this meant that Jesse had to constantly disguise, hide this eyeball to keep his cover from being an alien blown. After a few episodes, Jesse actually seemed to prefer staying here instead of going back where he came from and a great deal of his warrior angst got defused. Okay, if you've read this far, you get the idea that this seemed somewhat a lame show that didn't last long for good reason but I stuck it out as long as I could (what else was there to watch in 1989?). However; the show boned entirely when they had an episode in which Jesse became a Disney theme park employee but of course got into all kind of Disney scrapes. The floating eyeball somehow got drunk and wound up singing 'It's a Small World After All'. That was IT for me. I hope this helps. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 28, 2010, 5:30 pm

Edsel - Random Topics
I agree with some, but not all, of the comment below on the Edsel. I always felt that mechanically, the Edsel was a typical car of its era, and it was probably as reliable as anything Detroit produced during that period (apart from some understandable teething troubles that will crop up on any new design when it first launches). I also agree that the timing of the Edsel's launch (at the beginning of a pretty major recession) had a hand in the car being seen as unsuccessful. But I must disagree about the styling - for the term "striking" I would substitute "distinctive", and that is not meant in a good way. The vertical front grille was certainly unique, but in my opinion it looked hideous. I saw a restored Edsel out on the road last week, and I still think it looks awful. The 1960 Edsels actually replaced the vertical grille, and I think they looked a lot better, but by then the brand was doomed. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on April 28, 2010, 11:55 am

Body Piercing - Random Topics
Years ago, I joked that the final frontier of piercing would be having a hole drilled through your head from one side to the other (through the brain), with a large stud that fit through the hole. I thought that this was an truly absurd idea that no one would ever try. But they have (in a limited fashion) -- see http://www.tattooique.com/info/brain-piercing-extreme-body-piercing-idea/ -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on April 28, 2010, 11:00 am

Charlie Brown Specials - TV Shows
It's worth noting that the original Charlie Brown Christmas special would have turned out very different if Schulz hadn't stood up to the network executives. The network suits objected to a) The quotation from scripture that Linus makes, b) The use of actual childrens voices (rather than adult voice actors), c) The absence of a laugh track and d) the Vince Guaraldi jazz score. In other words, nearly all the things that makes the program truly memorable and distinctive (and which continue to make it a seasonal favorite 45 years later) are all things that the Network wanted to excise. Socre one for Charles Schulz for insisting on his vision for the program. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on April 28, 2010, 10:51 am

Pizza Hut - Random Topics
MCS I remember that about the best thing in the world as a kid in the 80s was going to Pizza Hut after Little League or various other kid activities. And I could have been bribed into absolutely anything with a trip to Pizza Hut afterward. It seems to have lost that mystique for kids... oh well, I had my fun. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on April 27, 2010, 7:06 pm

Where's George? - Websites
I guess this site's interesting, but from what I can gather the power-users mostly just get thousands of ones from their bank, enter them all, then re-deposit and start again. So they tend to log new bills. I've put about 500 bills in the system, just of cash that's floating around in my wallet and hardly fresh from the mint. I've found about 10 bills entered by power-users but none of my entries have been found by anyone, in years of using the site on a casual basis. Maybe I'm unlucky but it just seems like using the site the casual way isn't very rewarding. I'm not gonna go to the bank and get a thousand ones... just not gonna happen. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on April 27, 2010, 6:51 pm

Wikipedia - Websites
I don't think Wikipedia is worthless exactly, it actually does tend to provide pretty useful articles. The community itself behind the article pages is incredibly toxic... I was bitched out by a guy with a few zillion edits because I dared ask a question about one of his pet articles. And god forbid you actually make an edit to an article that an elite user doesn't agree with (or assumes is incorrect because you're a newbie)... they'll revert it within an hour and you might get blocked. But oh well, that doesn't seem to interfere with the quality of the articles too much. They're good for basic reference but I mean, don't expect everything there to be the gospel truth. One problem seems to be articles can get too long and fixated on recent events. An article on a sports team for example will usually devote like 80% of its body to the last 5 years, even if the team's sucked during them and their most important years were 30 years ago. Also some articles are just far too long to be read in one sitting... someone should tell the editors they're writing an encyclopedia article, not a book. In short, most problems seem to trace back to Wikipedia's power-users being too egotistical. But then again, maybe that's inevitable... not many normal people feel like making a zillion edits to an encyclopedia. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on April 27, 2010, 6:43 pm

Archie Comics already boned to some extent with the dynamic art (I miss the old animation!). To add a gay character to the comic would probably be a step in the wrong direction, in my opinion. -- Submitted By: (MacFan95) on April 27, 2010, 5:35 pm

Dexter - TV Shows
Never before have I wanted to like show so much and been so sorely disappointed. I couldn't make through the first season. Michael C. Hall is a terrific actor, and the concept is great. Trouble is, the writing sucks, all the characters are annoying and badly acted, and the worst thing of all - the show is ruined by the voice-overs. I don't want to hear Dexter tell me every thought that comes into his head. Especially when the purpose is to point out heavy-handed metaphors, such as when he looks at the box of doughnuts and says, "It's empty. Just like me." When I heard that line, that was the moment I realized I was watching a really stupid show. Michael C. Hall deserves a much better show with decent writing and a strong supporting cast, like he had on Six Feet Under. Hopefully he will move on soon to something more worthy of his talent. -- Submitted By: (raskolnikov) on April 27, 2010, 1:43 pm

Adventures of Pete & Pete, The - TV Shows
This show was so bizarre. It had some of the strangest characters and I still remember some names, Artie, Nona, Ellen, then some other weird characters like an ice cream truck driver with a bizarre head comparable to the old Jack In The Box character (burger joint) and the freaky math teacher. The mom had a metal plate in her head and there was a shop teacher that had this custom metal arm made for him. And it's funny how the older Pete exaggerated on everything at the beginning of each episode, a TV show that makes a big deal out of silly things, probably the first of it's kind. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on April 27, 2010, 8:38 am
