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.

Republican Party - Random Topics
If you spend your entire day watching television your opinion of everything is not applicable at all. How does being politically aware involve agreeing with everything you are told? Why can there only be Liberal and Conservative? I sit back and laugh, I get a bit uncomfortable of course, it is why I post my opinion. But I can enjoy life and carry on a conversation without conforming to being one or the other. I feel people are too tightly wound to racism/religion/politics. Did anyone see a large transition when Clinton/Bush/Obama became president? All these guys that get worshiped, Rush/Hannity/Olbermann/O'Reilly/Moore/Stewert they're laughing all the way to the bank. Do these people speak for us? Do they really understand, it's a television show, they all have writers and reporters.

18 Kids and Counting - TV Shows
That woman seems to be the living embodiment of Groucho Marx's infamous (but probably apocryphal) punchline! As the story goes, when he was hosting the game show of "You Bet Your Life", each contestant would tell him a somewhat distinguishing characteristic of themselves so he could joke on it. Anyway, supposedly, one contestant told him that she was the mother of 20 children which supposedly prompted Groucho to ask her why she had so many to which she answered because she loved her husband. This allegedly prompted Groucho to say "Lady, I love my cigar a great deal,too, but even I take it out of my mouth every now and then!" Yeah, of course, it boned when they decided to put their kids in front of those 'reality show' cameras to exploit their situation! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 16, 2009, 7:46 am

Rats - Random Topics
I really hate rats! Yes, there are other animals which spread deseases (or have the fleas whith the deseases), but those animals don't tend to seek out humans. Other Animals don't traps through the sewers before going through our stocks. Other animals aren't so bold to take a walk direktly in front of the eyes of humans. A rat would even eat a defenceless body, even if the human isn't death yet. Do they even have some use beside being a food resource? -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on November 16, 2009, 2:43 am

Spongebob JTS somewhere around the latter half of season 3. Before that, the show was charming and funny. Then episodes like "The Sponge Who Could Fly", "The Camping Episode", and "Krabby Land" happened, which were just awful. They were obnoxious, annoying, and NOT charming or funny. Seasons 4 and up were just plain garbage. The show went from cute, charming, and funny to loud, obnoxious, hyperactive, and not funny. -- Submitted By: (TheFNG) on November 15, 2009, 12:15 pm

Television Without Pity - Websites
From looking on the forums it seems it used to be the case that anyone could post, whether they were members or lurking guests. Boy things seem to have changed now. Then I tried to register from my Yahoo account and the number/letter verification thing took about three goes before it worked, then I got no confirmation email, clicked to request another one numerous times and still nothing, so I tried from a different email. Got verified and yet now I've been waiting almost a day before my account can be approved by some administrator when he/she can be bothered before I can post anything. I just feel inherently that any site that so dictated by shadowy admin approval is bad news and likely to be very elitist. The fact that it specifies on usernames 'no annoying fanboy names' is so petty a rule it hints that someone on there has gotten far too much power to idulge. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on November 15, 2009, 11:56 am

Weather Channel, The - TV Shows
Talking about global warming does not make a channel political. For those of you who did not pass junior high science, global warming and/or climate change (whatever you want to call it) are aspects of WEATHER. The deal with things like warmer winters. Winter has to do with weather. This is not politics. The fact that they have documentaries on it about anything does make this channel bone, I will agree with that. They should just tell the weather. That is why I am grateful for their website. You don't have to wait for all their commercials and other crap to see what the weather will be in your area. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on November 15, 2009, 12:20 am

Weather Channel, The - TV Shows
The Weather Channel boned the fish when they went down the "TV show" path circa 2000. Their early shows were "Atmospheres" and "Storm Stories". As time went on, it got worse and worse; more episodes and newer shows were showing up, and less emphasis was being placed on the weather! Around 2007 or so, Landmark (the old parent company) wanted to sell off TWC to NBC Universal probably because "it became too political", always talking about global warming, etc. I even remember on the old Scottish Site that "TWC was going to [go back to normal]!" I was excited at first, but was then none too excited a few months later! The Weather Channel is now "The News Channel"!!!!! Most of their stories are like watching the regular news, there are forecasts for all events (including Michael Jackson's memorial in LA!), and even a documentary on Death Valley had a "scary" content warning! What the heck! When Al Roker came to "The News Channel", he went from being the best meteorologist on TV to the worst meteorologist on TV!!!!! And thank goodness I haven't witnessed the movies being played on "The News and Movie Channel"!!!!! The only weather-related thing from NBC Uni now worth watching is KXAS 5-2, my over-the-air radar channel! That, and weather and traffic on 5-1. (Those youngens who live in the KXAS viewing area will probably know what I mean!!!!!)

I agree with the posts reason. Sure, I like IMDB because this is my primary resource for movie information, but I used to remember back in '05 or '06, every "Bottom 100" movie had a "500 Things To Do While Watching ('Manos', for example)" with silly and unlikely stunts and "Click here if you liked this movie!" (e.g. a "Baby Geniuses" movie) followed by a threat or a silly phrase. I was laughing so hard just like on The Scottish Site! All of that information disappeared within a year! I never wanted to post on IMDB again! I still use the site for my serious reason: to look up movie and TV stats!

I really liked Rick, actually, and I didn't like the whole way that was handled. It had a bad message attached to it. Not that Rick was a totally good person, but he wasn't a stereotype and his character had layers. That being said, I stopped watching after season 7 was over. The plots are just rehashes of old plots from before season 8 and none of the original, more compelling characters are there except Spinner, who got turned into a total joke.

Boned the fish after the first season. You can tell they were trying to dumb down the show based on the ending credits. In the first season, the ending credits discussed marine and other technology.

Rats - Random Topics
I think it's not so much that rats are being singled out for spreading disease. All creatures that spread disease are reviled (mosquitoes, flies, fleas, ticks, cockroaches, etc.), even if they're people. There's a stigma against people with HIV or AIDS, and in the middle ages, there was a stigma against people with Leprosy. It's not because people are mean, but because they are afraid of contracting their diseases. But rats also make good pets. Someone I know once had pet rats, and they're not only easy to take care of but very friendly. No hantaviruses or bubonic plague in them. The rat's reputation is not damaged beyond repair, though. The Secret of NIMH had rats as good guys (but only one as a bad guy). -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 14, 2009, 9:27 am

It wasen't just rats that the fleas lived on, it was any number of mammals. That rats were so common at time was why people blamed the rats. There all sorts of other factors that spread the plague. As another example, think of how many diseases we can get from farm animals or from other wild animals that we're more likely to encounter such as raccoons, foxes or skunks and yes from each other. Basically, any other person or species that we associate as being around people as much as or more often then being in the wild away from people. I'm not saying rats are all innocent and such.

Personally, I think the games boned the fish after the original trilogy. The first 3 games were lighthearted and fun; playing them did not require the thought and understanding of the others. Afterwards, the series got edgier, and therefore was not as fun. Now, I will admit that I prefer kiddie games over more mature ones, so your mileage may vary here, but as well it should be noted that too many sequels can ruin anything; even a series as brilliant as Spyro. -- Submitted By: (Puggy) on November 12, 2009, 10:32 pm

Star Wars - Movie Series
The prequels had so many weaknesses. The first one I remember being really suspenseful and action driven and impressive on a big screen, but it was let down by the daft comedy of Jar Jar Binks and how annoying young Anakin was. Attack of the Clones was something of a drawn out mish-mash collection of sub-plots that mostly go nowhere, and Anakin was just as annoying, although the scene in the gladiator pit with the savage giant cats was really good. Revenge of the Sith I think was the best of the three of course, very effective and really got under my skin, and even featured a good performance from Hayden as Anakin, and Emperor Palpatine really stole the film for me, but even then the dialogue had its shaky, clunky and irksome moments. It's strange because I don't actively hate the prequels but I don't think they did the film series any favours and I don't really count them. My personal canon is simply the first three films making up the trilogy. The prequels just don't have that something that made the original three Star Wars films what they were. They don't have the magic, the organic humanness, the believability, or even the sense of a just cause, hence they don't feel like real Star Wars to me. Some people lump Return of the Jedi with the prequels as being just as bad, but I completely disagree. Return of the Jedi had the old likeable gang, rather than the new unlikeable characters, it moved the overall story forwards rather than backwards. its certainly the reason why I'd take Superman 4 over Superman Returns). Besides it still had the old school feel- no CGI, a very Earthy feel, done with the old spirited frivolity and elan as opposed to the politicking po-facedness of the prequels except when Jar Jar Binks is on screen and turns it into a kid's slapstick film- as if the makers can now only do comedy if its really overt and patronising, or can only do rogueness in the characters if its really adolescent and obnoxious. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on November 12, 2009, 6:33 pm

House Hunters - TV Shows
It's bad enough that this show always manages to find its way onto TV every single time I'm stuck visiting the in-laws. What takes the cake is how the haughtiness seemingly oozes from every pore of each prospective homebuyer, as if to say "Ah yes, looky looky at the kind of digs I can afford, ha HAAAA!" Each episode I have been force-fed is chock-full of "vomit in your mouth" moments such as one homebuyer entering the kitchen of a $1.6mil home with granite countertops and recessed lighting and sneering "oh THIS needs more updating," the couple who whine how "the theater room IS rather small," and the well-into-their-middle-aged couple, upon being told a $2.3mil home has three bedrooms, barking "WE'RE used to having something with FIVE bedrooms!" OMG, how will that couple EVER survive with only TWO more bedrooms than they would presumably use on a nightly basis? I guess the hired help would have to bunk up four to an extra bedroom rather than two. Sheesh! How the average Joe Schmoe TV viewer could possibly connect with anything about this barf-fest is perplexing to me. There is rarely anything endearing about the hoity-toity homebuyers, the realtors are your typical "phony as a $3 bill" lot, and the properties are opulent. There was one episode of a couple looking into homes in the mid to upper $200k range, but even THOSE were McMansions relative to their location. And I love the end of every episode when each property is reviewed, numbered 1 through 3 with a brief description of its biggest selling point, followed by the homebuyers stating "we chose" with a dramatic pause inserted before they reveal their choice. Where is the suspense when #1 is oceanfront property, #2 is on a private island, and #3 has indoor/outdoor Olympic-sized pools? UGH, kiss my grits, people! I know it wouldn't make for good TV, but I feel people could better relate to this show if it were a LITTLE more representative of the common man. From time to time, I would like to see them mix in something similar to what I had to choose from in my price range. My criteria are 3 bedrooms, a garage and a basement. Yeah I know, I'm SO persnickety! #1 is crime-ridden neighborhood, #2 is big-time fixer-upper, and #3 is LONG commute. We chose (insert dramatic pause) HA, you're just gonna have to wait for MY episode to air! ;-) -- Submitted By: (Nature_Boy) on November 13, 2009, 1:10 pm

Heroes - TV Shows
I wanted so badly to keep enjoying this series. The first season was, on the whole, absolutely amazing. Everything that a new show should be-- bright, full of promise and some very compelling storylines and characters. Then, things really started to descend into silliness, but I kept watching, occasionally seeing flashes of the old brilliance. I kept watching right up until the last season, when they actually came up with this ridiculous storyline where Sylar started morphing into his dead mother and having conversations with himself. It was at that point that I knew that things had just gotten completely absurd. I kept watching until the end of that season, but that was it. I keep hearing that supposedly things are getting better, but even those reports seem to be a mixed bag at best and the series is getting all-time lows in the ratings, so maybe there isn't much to those reports. If this show were on any other major network it would already be canceled, but thankfully for it (though not for us), it's on NBC. -- Submitted By: (Agent0042) on November 12, 2009, 5:51 pm

Family Affair (1966) - TV Shows
I know it was supposed to be a sitcom but it sure had many sad situations. Not just the fact that these three rich kids with an indulgent uncle and doting English butler were ORPHANS! One of the saddest ones had to do when they befriended this girl named Eve (played by a pre-Jan Brady Eve Plumb). Anyway, their new friend Eve was in such frail shape that she couldn't go to school with the others but had to just do her homework from her room and they feel sorry for her so they visit her. Eve cheers up and they decide to really make Eve's day by throwing her an early Christmas since Uncle Bill's going to be out of the country during that time. Eve has a wonderful time but right when it's over, Eve's mom tells Uncle Bill that all this newfound friendship's getting too much for Eve's frail heart (despite the Davises' intents)so she needs Uncle Bill to tell the kids to quit visiting Eve. The last scene of that show's the killer as Buffy's heard crying her eyes out because Eve's doomed and now can't even have any friends over while Uncle Bill's walking up to her bedroom door like he's ready to console Buffy about the situation. I've often wondered what he COULD say to cheer Buffy up! Man, that was sad! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 12, 2009, 4:55 pm

King of Queens - TV Shows
Maybe it's envy and jealousy on my part, but shows that feature an overbearing schmuck of a couch potato married to an absolutely SMOKIN' way out of his league hottie typically lose me from the get-go. -- Submitted By: (Nature_Boy) on November 12, 2009, 4:33 pm

Smallville - TV Shows
I still love the show, but for me it had to be when "Jimmy" or should I say Henry Olsen was killed off end of last year. So for 3 years, yes 3 years, they lead us to believe this was Jimmy Olsen, Superman's Pal, etc. Now we find out that his middle name is Jimmy, has a younger brother with the first name Jimmy, and he chooses to go by the first name of his younger brother. Not saying that's totally unrealistic, but highly unlikely. Smallville needs to wrap up this year. With Lex Luther gone, at least for now, show isn't the same. Was great getting rid of Lana (at long last), but he's already working at the planet, has a relationship with Lois, has most of his powers, I think it's time he becomes Superman, unless they plan on waiting until the younger Jimmy is old enough. -- Submitted By: (Bob1980) on November 12, 2009, 2:14 pm

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - TV Shows
Actually I've just remembered what the final straw was for me. It was another one of those awful episodes after Buffy's resurrection (where she seems just really ridiculously bitter that her friends brought her back for the dead) that ends with everyone depressed and avoiding each other, which was bad enough, and then in a final twist we just see her making out with Spike out of the blue. Suddenly Buffy just wasn't the character she used to be, now she was someone who'd make out even with a psychotic vampire she was normally instinctively pledged to destroy and certainly never had no sexual feelings towards before. It was a degrading character assassination too far. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on November 12, 2009, 1:29 pm

Nip/Tuck - TV Shows
This show is so melodramatic, it makes a soap opera look like an infomercial! I can't keep up with who's screwing who and who is the baby-daddy of this kid or who married this person and who is out to kill someone and who is really dying and....it's just exhausting! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 12, 2009, 11:55 am

Miss America Pageant, The - TV Shows
I still can't believe it's not aired nationally anymore. Love it or hate it: this is an American institution! The last time I watched it, it was done in almost an "American Idol" format, with the viewers phoning or texting in their votes. *frowns* Guess I'm a traditionalist. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 12, 2009, 11:52 am

John Kricfalusi - Celebrities
Billy also refuses to go on Howard Stern and is too much of a pussy to even say why this is. Basically John K and Howard put him on the map and he has been a sh!t to both of them. Listen to that audio clip on youtube to see the real Billy West act like a little crybaby traitor to the Genius- John K. I still think Billy is funny, but I dont like him as much now as I have learned of his nefarious ways! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on November 12, 2009, 9:54 am

John Kricfalusi - Celebrities
Wow. It's hard to imagine that such a great voice actor could do something like that to the guy who got him the job in the first place. I remember when West voiced Ren as well as Stimpy...and the show was not as good as it used to be. John K was Ren! From this, I have the feeling that Nickelodeon is well on its way to being an evil corporation like Disney. That is, if they haven't already. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 12, 2009, 7:55 am
