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.

Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman - TV Shows
Somewhat like "Coronation Street" in the UK, this was a soap based on working class characters- only was somewhat of a zany dark comedy . It didn't take long for it to go from being merely quirky to being a sad self-parody- and it didn't help that the main character went from being a sympathetic spacey doormat to being an annoying whiner. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 5, 2009, 7:07 am

As I am typing this comment, the TV behind me is playing a documentary on vampires! YES, you heard right: vampires on MSNBC, "The Place for Politics!" Yes, some people are aware of the fact that a man named Jonathan Sharkey of the "Vampires, Witches, & Pagans Party" ran for President back in 2008, but that doesn't mean a news channel should play documentaries on vampires!!!!! This is even worse than CNN becoming "The Michael Jackson Channel!"

Harry Potter - Movie Series
After the first four novels which were great, the following ones didn't really have strong storylines - instead focusing mainly on the impending finale between Harry and Voldemort. For this reason, although the books were long and complicated, the film makers probably struggled to adapt them to movies and keep the audience interested. Also(and this may not be a popular opinion), Daniel Radcliffe is not the greatest actor in the world - I think this became apparent in the second film when they were not little kids anymore. -- Submitted By: (Phil.JS) on October 4, 2009, 4:04 pm

War of the Worlds (1989 Series) - TV Shows
There have been plenty of shows over the years ruined by changes to cast and producers - but War of the Worlds is possibly on top of the list. Good, scary stories interspersed with humour in the first season; dull & dark confusing rubbish in the second. The first episode of season 2 tied up some loose ends with the old cast and then moved off in a completely new direction with completely new rules. -- Submitted By: (Phil.JS) on October 4, 2009, 3:41 pm

Space: 1999 - TV Shows
Space: 1999 series 1 was brilliant. The episodes were dark, sometimes menacing and many had a haunting / surreal soundtrack which ran throughout the show, giving each episode a unique feel. 'Dragons Domain' really freaked me out when I first saw it all those years ago, and I would definetely rate it as the most scary thing I ever saw on TV as a child. Unfortunately, it was completely revamped for the second series, bringing in new characters and getting rid of most of the existing ones. The new writer / producer was straight from the final season of STAR TREK (and it showed). An alien was introduced as a new member of Moonbase Alpha, and good sci-fi stories were replaced with episodes with monsters in rubber-suits. A great shame. -- Submitted By: (Phil.JS) on October 4, 2009, 1:54 pm

Batman (1966) - TV Shows
I don't get the argument that the show "wraped" the original...the whole thing was one big parody! My favourite part was always the "Trap of the week". It was a great joke on the fact that nobody simply shoots the hero! Or all the little stupid tibits they put in it...like the "poles to batcave sign" (hello, who needs a sign when only two people are supposed to use the poles?), the fact that everybody on the street simply ignores all the masked people running around between them aso. The only fault the show had was that it run far too long. They really beat the thing to death. If I had to pinpoint the "boning moment", then when they had to replace "The Riddler" and "Catwoman". -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on October 4, 2009, 12:56 pm

Sonic The Hedgehog (SatAM) - TV Shows

Facts of Life, The - TV Shows
The dynamics just changed when the Garrett girls worked at Edina's Edibles and later that other store (forgot the name). This double-boned when Charlotte Rae left. I never considered Cloris Leechman's character to be a matriarch for the gals. She seemed more like she'd dispense a little advice where needed but largely lived her own life. This was also when the girls were glamming up and seemed more like they didn't really need each other anymore. Everyone was just doing their own thing. Quite honestly, it was seeing the gals glam up beautifully (I was a teen) that kept me watching the show. Not the storylines nor George Clooney (no offense to the actor). -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 4, 2009, 11:10 am

Batman (1966) - TV Shows
I side with the "cheese was good" comments. One of the rare cases for me in which campy comedy works for me. "The Monkees" has as much camp as well which I also liked. I think it was largely due to the period it was in. It just fit perfectly with the 60's. I'm surprise Batman and Robin didn't break out into dance sequences with polka dot strobes and (really) tilted camera shots and extreme close-ups. (Or did I miss that episode? lol). After seeing the movie just a few years ago, I couldn't stop laughing more. It is just prime entertainment, esp with friends regardless of age. No one takes camp seriously. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 4, 2009, 11:03 am

This is, plain and simple, the show that killed Nickelodeon. Nick, HOW COULD YOU??? To me, the show is not funny AT ALL (I do remember watching only like 5 minutes out of an episode, but still), it is MOVIE BASED (problem 1, make the Nicktoon BEFORE the movie/video game (same for Back at the Barnyard & Tak), and problem 2, Nicktoons and movie-based shows on Nick AREN'T THE SAME ANYWAY) & WORST OF ALL, THE SHOW BEARS NO ORIGINALITY WHATSOEVER!! (haven't we exhausted talking animals in movies/shows to the point of total lack of hilarity anyways?) Overall, this show is so stupid, a caveman could watch it. -- Submitted By: (Idontlikefails) on October 3, 2009, 2:22 pm

SpongeBob SquarePants - TV Shows
Honestly, I used to like the show, but now, it's just the kind of show that doesn't deserve it's popularity (seriously, you can make a Spongebob ANYTHING nowadays) and should've been canceled by now, but somehow still airs. Ever since the movie, the show itself has become a mere excuse for Nickelodeon to be able to air the same show every other hour. Spongebob is now a complete idiot (and is sounding worse than Fred of YouTube fame), Patrick's head is now completely EMPTY, Krabs now wouldn't throw out a penny TO SAVE HIS LIFE, and all other characters (Sandy, Squidward, etc.) have almost completely had their personalities enforced LIKE IT WAS THE LAW (basically following suit). Also, the show has fallen into the same "guest star" gimmick that plagues both Nick AND Disney to this day. Bottom line, if I wanted to watch any show similar to this, i'd watch Chowder or Flapjack. -- Submitted By: (Idontlikefails) on October 3, 2009, 2:10 pm

But when it was placed in a Syracuse, NY mall's food court right next to an arcade, that was a bonefishing moment! Understandably it got town protest but went up anyway.

Madonna - Music Groups
It's hard for me to pick between Reverse Boned (1998) and Never Boned. There was definitely a boning turn in the early 90's with her sexual obsession. After "Like a Prayer" and "Cherish", she went into some erotic realms I could not undersetand. The only good thing that came out of it was Madonna's Saturday Night Live appearance with the Wayne's World skit. ("Is that Prince?" still makes me laugh to this day) '98 saw her back to her normal/Broadway phase and winded up being better for it. She doesn't really have album hits like the 80's anymore, but there's still singles that come up that proves she still rocks ("4 Minutes" being the latest for me). -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 3, 2009, 11:48 am

Woody Allen - Celebrities
In spite of his own at best questionable dealings re Mia Farrow's family,he was amongst the movie set who signed the petition protesting the recent arrest of Roman Polanski. Mr Polanski was SAME individual who pled guilty to having sex with a minor ( a girl of 13 years old- who prosecutors believe had been given a Quaalude prior to him having his way with her despite her saying no)- and who then flew out of the US to avoid prosecution then lived the high life for 30 years. NOW will others join me in boycotting BOTH their productions instead of considering them to be elite artists whose work must be worshipped without the slightest regard to the human wreckage they've reaped?! I haven't bothered to see one work of Mr. Allen's since what happened with Mia Farrow's family (and frankly don't miss them) and have NEVER seen a Polanski film made since that crime had been committed. I don't give my hardearned monies to those who I know treated children like that! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 3, 2009, 11:47 am

Censorship - Random Topics
Censorship seems like a good idea at first. Keeping TV shows, games etc from showing things that might be disgusting or offensive, keeping people and characters from saying things most would consider offensive and other things. The problem is just what one deems offensive. There in lies the problem. Often, you have one group of people applying *their* sensibilities to the other. How often do we try to protect children in particular from bad words, violence and especially nudity? I know the censors are trying to save the younger generations from bad influences. Their hearts are in the right place. However, they forget that kids have different sensibilities not just because they're kids but because they're part of a different generation. Things that bother the censors now might not have bothered them when they were kids or it might not bother modern kids. Personally, I think that there should be at least some basic standards so things don't get out of hand. However, it should be up to the parents to decide whether or not a game, show or movie is acceptable for their kids to watch. Whatever happened to parents watching these shows and movies and playing the games (okay, maybe not games as they're somewhat more recent) before letting the kids do the same, then making a decision whether or not they feel those things are acceptable for the kids to experience? Oh yes, don't even get me started on how open censors seem to be with violence but not nudity/sex. How is the act that ends life someone more acceptable for us to see then the act that creates it? -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 3, 2009, 10:42 am

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
Yeah it would be great if everyone got the health care they needed. But what with the health care legislation currently floating around out there, if any of it is put into law, no one will get the health care they need. Only the health care the state will allow. Sure, they will all have insurance (in some plans people will be forced to buy insurance), but having insurance, and getting all the health care you need are and can be two different things. Just like all other countries, there will be rationing, waiting lines, and budget cutting. There isnt a country or state on earth, not even yours swampride, where people get all the health care they need. You'll find that out once you fall really ill (god forbid). -- Submitted By: (bmovies) on October 3, 2009, 8:10 am

@Chubby Rain Ever seen the movie Johnny Q? This isn't about helping freeloaders...everyone with half a mind can see that your recent health care system needs to redone, and I think it is great that Obama has the guts to try to do something. When he first got elected I thought: What a poser, but I guess, he is better than the alternative. But he really tries to change something, even if he makes unpopular decisions. It is to early to get exited, but I will wait at least four years before I condemn him. And no, I won't go to Europe...because I already live in Europe (it is really nice that you didn't notice that I am not a native speaker). And I tell you, we have a great laugh over here about the fuss you are making because of this health care programm. And another laught about the Chicago-incident.

Also what a victory for the tax paying citizens of Chicago that the Olympics ARE NOT going to held there. I cannot imagine the graft and cronyism that would have gone on when Obama was allowed to funnel that much pork and waste into that corrupt city to pay back the crooked political machine that he owes all his success to. To a lesser extent the US citizen who would have probably been footing the bill as well when our international experiment in the Chicago Daley Olympics ran Billions over budget.

Swanpride- Show me the successful government run program that wasnt poorly run, over regulated, and ran way over cost and I'll get excited about government run healthcare.

Reality Television - Random Topics
Real World was a neat concept when it debuted. Granted the vapid squabbles and such began from the first season of this show, but it still caught your attention to the experiment and how people would fare in the long run. A year after was when it started wearing its welcome. After the "London" season with the last batch of overall group that got along, it went downhill from there. When it became about owning a business, the competition for air time and shock value went up. And other reality shows brewing at this time were about to follow up. Trash tv became its finest with more squabbles from living together, squabbles vying for a guy/gal's courtship, squabbles to survive, squabbles to be the best chef, squabbles cuz they're celebrities, squabbles cuz they're entertaining enough to become tabloid celebrities etc. Enough fish fry for a nation! -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 2, 2009, 6:19 pm

Some political correctness was needed in our society. But too quickly it's gotten out of control.

Gangsta rap ruined it. There was a defining turn for me when MC Hammer came onto the scene. But it was for the better, introducing fly girls and dance flavor rap. Social awareness rap was still there and strong along with this. Then probably around 1999 as someone said, it became mostly about gangsta rap -- getting laid and hanging your thang out.

And who began the idiotic rumor that health care is a Nazi idea? Read the history books!

McDonalds - Random Topics
The director didn't do any exercise because he wanted to represent the amount of exercise a typical American did - which was basically trips to and from work (I think he has a slight advantage in the city actually having to walk a mile or so to and from work). He ate 3 times a day to disprove a lawsuit reasoning that you can be healthy eating McDonald's food on a regular basis. But you definitely nailed it on the head in saying it became routine rather than a treat. Two years ago, I used to eat at Burger King twice a week on the average and I honestly thought (like several Americans) that stuff wasn't that unhealthy for you. To be fair, if you did just go for the salads or visit once a month, it's not so bad. [Sorry I repeated a reason btw.

McDonalds - Random Topics
The problem with Supersize Me was that the guy had McDonalds three times a day and also had little exercise. In my opinion, it was not an accurate test. Having said that, I think the problem with McDonalds and other restaurants in general is that they stopped being treats and started becoming regular meals. People used (perhaps still do) to call McDonalds and other food like it junkfood. I.e., it's bad for you which is why it's fine as a treat but not as a normal choice for meals. I think that's when McDonalds boned the Fish, when it became an every day thing rather then a treat. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on October 2, 2009, 1:07 pm

NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) - Random Topics
This is hard to say as a Nintendo fan, but I vote for the Wii. Not because it's a bad system in itself and innovates with the motion controllers and the casual gaming. But that's where the problem lies. It's the first system to focus almost entirely on that demographic. Hardcore gamers take a significant backseat. It hasn't fully boned yet, but will become that way if the next system doesn't add back focus to the hardcore gamers as well. It's a shame because the hardcore games out there they do have (Fallout 4, Mad World, etc.) are equally fun and very creative with the Wiimote. Nonetheless, it's still the start of the turning point. Awesome party system, poor solo-player system. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 2, 2009, 6:26 am

If you're fairly familiar with Airplane!, then it's now almost impossible to take the Airport movies seriously - in your mind, the scenes in the serious movie set up a joke, but you never get the punchline. Similarly, I now can't watch Leslie Nielson or Lloyd Rridges in a serious role without expecting "Don't call me Shirley!" or "Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinking/smoking/amphetamines/sniffing glue". Definitely a case where the spoof has had a more lasting impact that the thing it was spoofing. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on October 2, 2009, 6:25 am

VH1 - Random Topics
VH1 used to be innovative. Unlike MTV, it's regular programs actually related to music - whether behind the scenes of videos, behind the music, or old movies with musical themes. Then the videos dropped -- enter MTV's twin. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 2, 2009, 6:20 am

Dance Dance Revolution - Random Topics
Supernova 1 was the start of the boning. Released so long after Extreme (previous version), had syncing issues (you could step to the beat perfectly and it scored you poorly), and was released during the arcade decline. However, it is still fun and popular with hardcore fans so hasn't fully boned yet. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 2, 2009, 6:15 am

Halloween (Holiday) - Random Topics
I think when schools had to start banning having a halloween celebration at the schools- no costumes, candy or fun etc. it was just another example of how politally correct engineering killed something that was generally just fun for kids. So perhaps Schools have boned the fish in this case, but Halloween was just a victim of it! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 2, 2009, 6:14 am

Donkey Kong Country - Random Topics
I think the core series, the Country series 1, 2, and 3, are definitely the strongest of the bunch. And since the Land series on the GameBoys were more or less remakes of those, I basically consider them the same games. 64, in my opinion, was slightly weaker. They just didn't put a lot of thought into a lot of elements in the game that remain under-developed. Also, I didn't see the worth in making new characters. It should've just been Donkey, Diddy, Dixie, and Kiddy, and they could've added that weird orangutan one for kicks. The other two new Kongs in that game weren't all that special. I would love to see the Country series return for the Wii or the DS. They're just excellent games with excellent gameplay. It'd be much better than these odd Konga drum things or whatever they are. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on October 2, 2009, 1:07 am

Highlander: The Series - TV Shows
OMG guys, they made a straight-to-internet Highlander reunion "movie". It looks like they made it on a budget of $12.37. They couldn't even afford to get Duncan MacLeod! It's up on Hulu: http://www.hulu.com/watch/42573/highlander-reunion -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 1, 2009, 11:33 pm

Judge Judy - TV Shows
This show is horrible. Not only is Judy biased toward the 65+ crowd but she is also biased toward women. You know who will always win. And don't get me started on the over the top dramatics she is doing to get ratings. And what is up with the bailiff? -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 1, 2009, 11:08 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
The best thing about this show was the fact that working class people could relate to it. The only thing that got old was that Becky was horrible. The addition of David was also bad. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 1, 2009, 11:00 pm

Dexter - TV Shows
just recently came across this show and loved the first season! now im caught up but i watched them so quickly i must have missed something. i thought batista was sleeping with the detective that was an undercover prostitute, not laguardia (sp)? guess ill have to do some backtracking! -- Submitted By: (dek067) on October 1, 2009, 9:46 pm

I have to agree with that. When the lead singer goes it is time to hang up the instruments. They should have enough money to retire. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 1, 2009, 8:29 pm

could still see it today - king of the world, my heart will go on and all. well past the 1997 hype it lives up to a rewatch time and time again.

Airplane! - Movie Series
I gotta give credit to a movie that has comedy suspense in a space shuttle for the sequel and the oddity pulled it off. the first one was a classic but the second one was just about as enjoyable. boning was spared easily on this one. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 1, 2009, 8:18 pm

Die Hard - Movie Series
It was starting to bone for me with Die Hard 3. It was still fairly entertaining but Bruce's character was not in enclosed areas anymore and wasn't always in imminent danger til the end. The puzzle-solving aspects was far-fetched for me (esp him and Samuel Jackson in a "dangerous situation" trying to fill water jugs in a park lol. And the n* sign in the beginning just seemed like pointless shock value. But the 4th one got back on track. Situations where he was in danger due to circumstance and then it became personal. And the updated theme with networks and the internet blended well.Sure, he had to lose his wife in the story, but it gave for him to be cynical and edgy again. Good job. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 1, 2009, 8:12 pm

Jurassic Park - Movie Series
The third movie was definitely the boning point. JP2 was still entertaining but not groundbreaking like the first. But it was getting old choosing to have a subset of the original crew in each sequel. I'm surprised they don't bring back the kids in the 4th one (the girl, fortunately, left show biz and became a successful painter in real life and did not suffer child star doom). -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 1, 2009, 5:21 pm

Happy Days - TV Shows
It had to be when Richie & Ralph left,I can't believe it went on as long as it did afterwards. I really felt sorry for 'Potsie', because his character became completely redundant. He was practically reduced to walk-on parts (surely the writers could have used him better), he didn't even have his singing anymore as Joanie & Chachi seemed to do most of the singing later on. -- Submitted By: (Phil.JS) on October 1, 2009, 2:18 pm

Video Games - Random Topics
Video games boned when people started only playing them and doing nothing else. Get out of your house and get some exercise, sunshine, and fresh air already! -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 30, 2009, 9:48 pm

Sesame Street - TV Shows
Elmo I think had premiered when I was starting to get too old for it. The character was not too bad, it is just the fact that he has taken over. Give me Grover, Cookie Monster, and Snuffy any day. I didn't know Cookie Monster cut down on cookies but it makes sense. Trying to encourage these fat-ass children to eat better. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 30, 2009, 9:44 pm

Mystery Science Theater 3000 - TV Shows
The post-Dr. Forrester host segments were where I'd say it boned. Two of my favorite episodes, Space Mutiny and Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders, are from that era, and the theater parts are pure gold, but the host segments are painfully unfunny. It's hard to believe they were even made by the same people. Still, the show as a whole never got bad, and will be dearly missed. Keep circulating the tapes! -- Submitted By: (Hanglyman) on September 30, 2009, 3:39 pm

Captain Planet and the Planeteers - TV Shows
One of my most hated cartoons of all time. And I love Cartoons- give me Mighty Orbots, Centurions or MASK any day in the 80's. Planeteers can go have some slaw and chips with vinegar over at LJS with Captain Planet! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on September 30, 2009, 8:52 am

Captain Planet and the Planeteers - TV Shows
This is one of my all-time favorite shows as a kid. Contrary to what people say, it is NOT overly preachy. This is the best it gets in displaying graphically (even if animated) pollution takes its toll on the environment. Even if there is only one planeteer (especially heart- it helps get the animals to follow Ma-Ti's lead and he knows a few good moves too) they can be saved. Kwame was my favorite as he was voiced by LeVar Burton (of Reading Rainbow fame). People, look at this show with your heart, not your eyes or ears. -- Submitted By: (AaronGookin) on September 30, 2009, 8:36 am

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
Exploding Console, Thanks for going to the trouble for the step-by-step discourse re Tasha Yar's daughter! I know you were doing your best trying to rationalize the preposterous. Sometimes preposterous situations work in fiction if brought forth via logical steps and if the scenarios prove clever and/or funny. Unfortunately, Exploding Console, your well-intentioned discourse doesn't change my POV that the show boned via writers having needlessly dug themselves into a hole over a minor character who was not only annoying but a bore! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 30, 2009, 7:14 am

Kitchen Nightmares - TV Shows
Gordon Ramsay began taking on failing restaurants in the UK in 2004, and found chefs who were lazy and/or clueless, oblivious owners, food that was anything but fresh, dirty kitchens, out-of-style dining rooms, and more. After the success of Hell's Kitchen in the US, Fox decided to give Gordon Ramsay a US adaptation of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. Yes, the formula is different, but I get so much pleasure when GR berates people who clearly shouldn't be in the restaurant business because the food they serve is hazardous to their customers' health (I've been poisoned by restaurants twice in my life). My favorite episodes to date: The Seascape, Dillon's/Purnima, Fiesta Sunrise and Hannah & Mason's. All featured chefs and/or managers who had no respect for food or for the customers they were serving it to. Not coincidentally, all also featured great bollockings from Gordon. -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on September 29, 2009, 9:10 pm

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
Tasha Yar's daughter was the same age as Tasha (she was in her mid 20s) because of time travel. In one episode, time travel shenanigans cause the previous Starship Enterprise to travel into the future. It's the classic hero goes into the future and history records them as vanishing so nasty stuff happened because they weren't there and the future is now a heck hole. Only difference is that in the episode it was the present that became the heck hole. Anyway, to ensure the historical event turned out right, the alternate Tasha went back with the previous Enterprise because in the real time line, she died. History reverted to its proper form (if such a thing exists) but the alternate Tasha continued to exist on the previous Enterprise. Sometime during the battle, the bad guys captured her, and she ended up going with an official (or something) in exchange for amnesty for the other crew members captured. Her daughter was born a year later. Since this was now some time in the past, by the time she caught up (so to speak) to the present, the daughter was an adult. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on September 29, 2009, 8:16 pm

City Guys - TV Shows
This was a pretty good Saturday morning show in the same vein as Saved by the Bell and California Dreams. I want to know what they paid Ms. Nobles. She was the principal as well as a homeroom teacher and anything else that needed to be done. I actually attended the taping of the show where she got married and the actors that played Jamal and Night Train stood by the door when the audience left and shook hands which was nice. After we left I think they took Ms. Nobles' new husband to the roof and threw him off because he was never seen, heard from, or mentioned again. Tough city. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on September 29, 2009, 7:16 pm

There's nothing wrong with the language, since Romance languages are the prettiest and sexiest. But France tends to be filled with American hating snobs.

Monday Night Football - TV Shows
Howard Cosell should never have been fired the way he was. He commented on Washington Redskins WR Alvin Garrett's elusiveness when he said, "That little monkey gets loose, doesn't he?"--but because Garrett was black, some idiots thought it was a racial remark. Ever try catching a monkey in your backyard? Other mistakes in MNF history: O.J. Simpson as commentator, Joe Namath as commentator (Howard Cosell is right, most ex-jocks suck as broadcasters; guys like Sean Salisbury and Trev Alberts are rare exceptions), and Dennis Miller as commentator. -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on September 29, 2009, 3:25 pm

TAXI - TV Shows
Another show that Tony Thomopolous (head of ABC's programming department from the '70s until 1985) killed by moving it from one night/time on the ABC schedule to another. Thank goodness that the show's first four seasons are on DVD (just for the sake of contrast, Life Goes On and Benson have had only their first season on DVD, but not subsequent seasons). What an eclectic set of memorable characters (my favorite was Christopher Lloyd as Reverend Jim Ignatowski). -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on September 29, 2009, 3:18 pm
