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.

Adult Swim - Random Topics
I hate to say it since Adult Swim has provided so much entertainment and laughter for me for years, but in the past few years virtually all of their new shows have been weak, poorly animated and laughless in large extent. The only exceptions I can think of are Moral Orel and Venture Brothers and MO is cancelled and VB can't really be described as a "new" show anymore. Drinky Crow, Tim and Eric, Fat Guy, Devil's Daughter, Assy McGee, Superjail, Minoriteam, Xavier, Saul of the Mole Men, Squidbillies, Metalocalypse, and many others of recent vintage seem to subscribe to the "if its gross, it's funny" ehtos, and for me, it's not. Not much subtlety or wit involved in these shows. And the over reliance on old chestnuts (reruns) of Family Guy and Aqua Teen is a mistake too. At some point, everyone is going to tire of them and then where will they be? I also echo the feelings of other fans who bemoan the live action emphasis. Shouldn't those shows be on Comedy Central (if aired anywhere)? -- Submitted By: (BaronCathode) on December 3, 2009, 6:41 pm

Hotels - Random Topics
Whilst I don't travel enough to go to hotels frequently, I always make a point of being nice the people who work there. It's wise to show respect to workers no matter what business you are at, whether you're at hotels, restaurants, etc. (even if you don't get a discount or other bonus). I hate rude people who think they're royalty and thus allowed to treat people--especially workers--like garbage, and act like they're above other customers. I can imagine how tempting it must be for a worker to restrain themselves from launching a profanity-laced tirade against these jerks. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 3, 2009, 5:51 pm

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - TV Shows
One of the things that made this show unique was the lack of a time limit. Contestants could take as long as they liked to answer a question. The bonus? It added to the suspense factor, especially when the question thoroughly stumped the contestant. Now that WW2BAM has a time limit, it's turned into yet another quiz show. It wasn't as good when Regis left, but it at least had a redeeming factor. They flushed it away by adding a time limit. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on December 3, 2009, 8:45 am

Have to disagree. Sure, the Yankees have an advantage of having millions of bucks to bank on, but the Pirates, and a few other teams need to suck it up, build strong minor league systems, and keep on putting out a good product, while not screaming "BROKE!!!" Besides, whats to say that with a Salary Cap, that would kill off any dynasties. The NFL has one, and the Patriots had their dynasty.

TV Guide - Random Topics
I like bmovies's story on how what was once THE source for TV listings; it's now a complete joke! Thankfully, I use TitanTV and Zap2It for looking up the locals (HD and extra DTV channels; the newspaper doesn't even list those special DTV channels!). Other than that, I'd have to say TV Guide was OVER when they KILLED the "Jump the Shark" site, which was one of my favorite sites ever! Using my trademark rant, "I logged on to Jump The Shark back in February or so, only to find out that the priceless comments have been wiped off the face of the Earth! I am mad! I have been a JTS fan since 2003, and I am shocked to see it disappeared! I even wanted to see a Disney Channel page similar to the Nick page! I want my JTS back!" That being said, I am boycotting TV Guide (except for maybe an electronic TV listing system built-into the TV) until this issue is taken care of! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on November 30, 2009, 6:07 pm

Knight Rider (2008) - TV Shows
4. The quality of the episodes started to drop. It started off with a complex, half secretive history of Mike Traceur, later Mike Knight, with a complex web of lies and the mystery of Karr only occasionally mentioned in fleeting dialog. The interpersonal relationships between the characters left plenty of room for development. Then FLAG is gone, KARR is gone, and the plot is gone. We're left with Mike showing up at a random place, gun fight, car chase, fist fight, car chase - the end! Gun fight, car chase, fist fight, car chase - the end! Completely destroyed what could have been so great. -- Submitted By: (KaseyAkira) on November 28, 2009, 2:58 pm

3. FLAG. The Foundation for Law and Government. I liked how this was a branch of the government that was involved in counter-terrorist activities and took on special cases - "In a world of criminals who operate above the law". Then they got rid of FLAG. All of it. WTF??? Suddenly the whole thing is shut down, the daughter of the guy in charge inherits 10 billion or something, then its back to just 4 people? How do they decide what cases they'll go after? Do they just randomly pick? One of the cases was some guy who nobody knew but he died under mysterious circumstances. WHY DOES ANYONE CARE??? At least with the government you get the sense that someone is prioritizing targets with at least national interest at hand if nothing else. Having just 4 kids run the whole place makes it seem like Scooby and the gang investigating random mysteries. -- Submitted By: (KaseyAkira) on November 28, 2009, 2:53 pm

Knight Rider (2008) - TV Shows
This show had sooooo much potential, and they blew it so incredibly bad, it was painful to watch. 1. The opening. I loved the music... but whats with all the super fast close ups and one second explosions? The opening is just a blur of images that leave you dazed rather than dazzled. 2. Karr. We had this HUGE lead up to Karr being revealed. I mean a careful, methodical lead up that really built the suspense - especially since Mike was his driver, but had his memory erased! Finally they show him - OMG some type of transforming robot thing! THEN!... Kitt kills him. The end. WHAT???? You could have let Karr survive the initial encounter and had like 10 seasons of plot surrounding this, all leading up to some incredible series finale with an epic battle between KITT and KARR, government vs terrorist, law and order vs chaos and corruption. Instead they had Kitt fight Karr right from the start, in a terribly choreographed scene, when Kitt was supposed to be only partially functional anyway. Its ridiculous. -- Submitted By: (KaseyAkira) on November 28, 2009, 2:47 pm

EA Sports - Random Topics
EA sports boned when they bought the exclusive NFL license in 2005. That means that only EA Sports is allowed to make video games using real NFL teams, players, stadiums, etc. Why did they do this, you ask? They did this because they knew that NFL 2K5 (produced by 2K Sports) was far superior to their Madden 2005. They knew that 2k was producing high-quality games, so the cowards over at EA bought the license so that only they could make NFL games. They were AFRAID that 2K was making better games, so they pull a chickenshit move like that. Ever since they bought the license, EA's Madden games have steadily gone downhill in terms of quality. The Madden games are just the same steaming piece of dog turd released every year, the only difference is the updated rosters. To that I say SCREW YOU EA SPORTS, you're getting no more of my money until you give up that license. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on November 27, 2009, 12:32 pm

Dawson's Creek - TV Shows
Series 3. Up to that point Dawson's Creek had been one of those shows that even if you were ambivalent about teen dramas it could win you over. The characters had an ingrained history and whilst their capacity for articulation was a stretch, the feelings they emoted about felt very real. It could have done with more subtlety- how much more surprising and wonderful would it be if Dawson and Joey hadn't discussed the changes that were happening to them so that when they finally got together it really wasn't something you'd expect (but would feel very natural and believable all the same). Series Two i'd say was the most refined season, and then with Series Three it just seemed like there was someone new in charge who just didn't really like or respect the show, and turned it into a contrived, desperate sex comedy and transformed the characters beyond recognition. Something of my respect for the show died when that happened and despite things picking up afterwards I just didn't feel the trust towards the show that I used to. It stopped being special to me, it stopped having a firm place in my heart because it seemed to have lost its own heart. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on November 25, 2009, 8:17 pm

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) - TV Shows
With the new movie "Turtles Forever" out, I just want to take this opportunity to say, "I called it." Well, some of it anyway. A review I wrote on JumpTheShark (http://web.archive.org/web/20061031120857/http://www.jumptheshark.com/): (Quote) The franchise itself is beyond jumping: somehow it manages to stay between pop culture and the pure collector's clique well enough that it can resurrect into the public eye every few years without becoming stale. Many other old franchises have tried this, but none up to this point have succeeded as well as TMNT. Also, with interdimensional travel a recurring theme in the stories, the entire series actually has a built in self starter: whenever one incarnation becomes stale, simply focus in on another dimension. With that said, the 2003 series has definitely jumped the shark hardcore with the 4th season. Stuff like Shredder being an Alien and such didn't really hurt the series or the franchise, however, the triple whammy of marginalizing Casey Jones's insanity, making April an expert ninja (who can kick Casey around whenever she wants to) and making Shredder an inferior combatant to Bishop could pretty much end this show tomorrow. Did Eastman and Laird not learn from the previous series what NOT to do with certain characters? If nothing else, haven't they read the runs of the comics that they originally parodied and similar comics? Hell do these guys even watch professional wrestling at all? If so, I would think that they would know that things like marginalizing the villain and the anti-hero are big no-no's when it comes to good storytelling: your heroes are only as good as your villains, and your anti-heroes are good solutions to problems that the guys in the white hats are unwilling or unable to deal with; you don't want to neuter them either, or you'll find your storylines a lot more boring. Eastman and Laird have managed to do both, turning Casey Jones from a crazed justice driven vigilante to an animated version of Ray Romano, and making the Shredder a buffoon on the level of the original animated Shredder of the latter part of the first series. I really like Bishop and the new Rat King as tough enemies for the TMNT, but no one should be outshining the Shredder as far as fighting ability and sheer deviousness, something which Bishop and hell, even Baxter Stockman do regularly. April as a super ninja has also got to go. I know it's Eastman and Laird's series, and they can do whatever they want with it. That said, my opinion, the move sucks. Having her sneak around enemy bases and beat up enemy ninjas (while neutered Casey sits around getting beat up) doesn't make Splinter look better as a ninja master, it makes THE ENEMIES LOOK WORSE, and as a result, it makes the HEROES (aka the TMNT) look that much worse as well. If you don't believe me roll on over to the ST: Voyager comments, and see how Janeway's regular abuse of the Borg went over with fans: do they consider Janeway a hardass or do the Borg suck in public opinion? Apply that answer to the TMNT, and you'll see why April needs to go back to second bananas scene filler real quick. I really don't think that the series is ever coming back, and the rumors I hear of the 6th season being purely comedy oriented (and the 5th being DVD only) don't help matters much either. That is a shame, because the series started out with so much potential...(/Quote) Yeah, season 6 wasn't permanent, nor was April's super ninjitsu, so I missed those. Did get the dimensional crossover though, so I think this might survive the Nickelodeon crossover as well. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on November 24, 2009, 10:42 pm

Maury - TV Shows
Its amazing that Maury can have a stage full of people and the sum total of their IQs is still double digits. First, these people apparently have no idea how reproduction works. 'Yeah I sept wit her fo, fi times. But she a ho, so I cain't be da baby-daddy.' Then the grammar is horrid. I don't expect perfect English from everyone, but let's make some attempt at looking intelligent. -- Submitted By: (MSmith) on November 24, 2009, 9:27 pm

Quantum Leap - TV Shows
This show came close a few times, often to connect to a popular fad or movie. Leaping into a chimp (The Right Stuff 1983/Episode 407 The Wrong Stuff 1991)in season 4 was a goofy stretch. But for me, the low point was when it violated all the rules it had created to explain "leaping" by having Sam leap into his great-grandfather during the Civil War. (Ken Burns' Civil War series 1990/Episode 520 1993) They tried to explain this by saying that it had to do with common DNA. They used a similar expaination to explain the leap into a chimp, by the way. -- Submitted By: (UUTodd) on November 24, 2009, 1:16 pm

Veganism - Random Topics
A post from a vegan condemning meat eating and meat eaters: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/22/opinion/22steiner.html?_r=1 And on the second page, the 8th paragraph, he calls meat-eaters "self-righteous". The pot calling the kettle black?: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/22/opinion/22steiner.html?pagewanted=2 He criticizes meat eaters for devalueing animal life, and seeing animals as inferior beings. If this guy's concerned about devalueing the lives of living things, he should stop eating fruits and vegetables too, because plants are also living things. When he bought his vegan food, did he check for a label saying "No animals were killed in the raising of this produce either through the use of pesticides or farm equipment"? If any animals were killed during the production of his meals, then he is just as guilty of killing animals as those who eat meat. The only way to ensure your diet does not kill any animals is to starve to death. Really, nobody in their right mind wants animals to be tortured, but not all farms are cruel to their animals. And many of the ones that are eventually get caught and punished. And it's no more hypocritical for an animal lover to eat meat than it is for a plant lover to eat fruits and vegetables. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 24, 2009, 12:21 pm

They should have ended it after the second movie. It tied up the series perfectly but nope USA network just had to go and crap allover the franchise with a TV sequel starring the kid from the Pizza Hut commercials. -- Submitted By: (TheAdamantiumElbow) on November 24, 2009, 1:51 am

Thanksgiving - Random Topics
Thanksgiving is completely overshadowed by Christmas, no doubt about it. I see people decorating for Christmas already, and it's not even Thanksgiving. Not to mention that Christmas commercials started showing up even before Halloween. I haven't seen a Thanksgiving-themed commercial yet. Radio stations are also starting to play Christmas carols. Don't get me wrong, Christmas is my favorite holiday, but it seems that nobody gives a damn about Thanksgiving anymore. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on November 23, 2009, 7:57 pm

I rarely watch commercials, as most of you probably do, I consider them "TV Intermission" or whatever. I think in general there have been a few funny ones, and a few horrible ones. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Bill) on November 23, 2009, 6:58 pm

This series only lasted, what, 5 shorts? It didn't have time to Bone. Besides the gags were perfectly timed, and they still hold up to this day; It was by the great Tex Avery anyway, I don't think he ever made a bad cartoon. (Although a few were racially insensitive) -- Submitted By: (Mr.Bill) on November 23, 2009, 6:39 pm

Proud Family, The - TV Shows
I couldn't get into this show. The humor was dry, and unfunny, the character designs were all ugly and hard to even look at, and the characters were all stereotypes, (Like the one Black girl has 50 brothers and sisters, talks in slang, and is loud, the Hispanic girl is rich, snooty, and stuck up, the Father is a bumbling idiot, I could go on). -- Submitted By: (Mr.Bill) on November 23, 2009, 6:25 pm
