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.

Breaking Bad - TV Shows
Awesome, amazing, wonderful show! To the guy who hates it without ever seeing it, that's cool, to each his own. But I think it's the fact that he refused to watch even 2 minutes of it that it makes his comments idiotic. Anyway, Walter White is the best anti-hero to ever be on TV. Bryan Cranston's transformation from a sweet family man to a monster is truly amazing and he deserved every award he got for it and more but it was an AMAZING ensemble cast! Jesse, Hank, Gus, Saul, Skylar, Mike, all incredible and performed brilliantly! I think 100 years from now people will still watch it, long after Modern Family and Glee are long forgotten. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 10:44 am

Malcolm in the Middle - TV Shows
I think it stayed on the air for too long like a lot of people said. It was funny and cute when Malcolm and Reese acted like idiots when they were 11 and 12 but not so much when they were 18 and 19. The character of Malcolm became a complete waste of skin and the biggest a-hole on TV. I actually heard a story on NPR and they actually referred to Malcolm in the Middle as "Bryan Cranston's sit-com before Breaking Bad. LOL! Take that, Frankie Muniz! By the Way Hal and Lois were the best part parts of the show. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 10:32 am

Modern Family - TV Shows
Let me say this is a funny and clever show and I never miss an episode. BUT I have to agree with the anti-Manny club here, I can't stand him! He's smug, spoiled, obnoxious, and if he was a real kid he would get the snot beaten out of him in school every single day until he wised up. That would be wrong of course but it would totally happen. Sophia Vergara is amazing, truly amazing! I'm sorry they got rid of Dylan, he was very funny as the dumb-ass clueless older teen. We used to say in our house that Dylan was an older version of Luke. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 10:19 am

New Adventures of Old Christine, The - TV Shows
Yeah the brother Matthew and Christine's ex, played by Agent Coulson from SHIELD, are the best things about this show. Christine was absolutely awful. I usually like Julia but I hated this character. I know it's wrong to hate on a child but the kid who played her son was so bad I turned off the show if he had more than a few lines. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 10:08 am

Parker Lewis Can't Lose - TV Shows
My crazy mom gave me the boxed set of DVDs for Christmas. I really love it. It's hip, funny, and sweet without being lame and I agree Rob Bowman is one of the best TV directors ever. Parker and Mikey were very bromantic, lol! Maybe if it were being made today they would experiment some but back in the 90's it probably wouldn't get past the network censors. The story lines are classics and hold up very well, all about being scared and lonely, trying to fit in and realizing who your friends really are. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 9:58 am

Eerie, Indiana - TV Shows
Good show and it has become a cult classic mainly because it only lasted 19 episodes and never, ever boned or jumped. It was supposed to be a throw-away Saturday morning kid's show but the writers and directors (Jose Rivera, Joe Dante and Bob Baliban)turned it into a vehicle for amazing story telling. Each and every episode was brilliantly written, directed and acted. The cast included John Astin, Tobey Maguire, Ray Walston, Stephen Root, Matt Frewer, Rene Auberjonois and Claude Aikens, some kiddie show, huh? Omri Katz, Justin Shenkarow, and Jason Marsden were so good as the main characters of Marshall, Simon, and Dash. It's on most of the streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, seriously, go watch it! Check out this story I found on fanfiction.com, it's really good and captures the heart and soul of Eerie, Indiana: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10174455/1/Friends-and-Family -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 9:44 am

Vikings - TV Shows
Love this show! Love it! Ragnar is over-the-top awesome even if he tends to be a little on the murdery side, lol! Life back in the 9th Century was tough, peeps, and guys like Ragnar and his crew did what they had to do to make a living. Sure, they raided and killed but they were stuck in frigid, barren, rocky, medieval Norway for god's sake. To their credit, they kept saying they wanted to colonize warmer lands and become farmers so they could stop all the looting and maiming but the snooty English didn't want them for neighbors. First rate show, beautifully filmed and acted, watch it! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 9:28 am

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo - TV Shows
Why hasn't Child Protective Services taken those kids away? Or is this show just more staged "reality" crap from Hollywood? Feeding a grossly overweight child caffeine loaded sugar water so she will act crazy for the camera is complete child abuse! Mama June should take her huge butt and her sketti recipe and go live in Squalor Holler with her trash friends but give her kids to someone who will give them a chance of growing up to be decent people. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 9:17 am

Marcus Welby, M.D. - TV Shows
My grandmom loved this show and asked me to watch an episode with her on DVD. Six hours later I was still watching, she finally made me go home, it's THAT good. I don't get why some people think it was stupid or not realistic. Doc Welby was the sweet old grandfather figure but he knew his stuff and would totally talk smack to you if you deserved it, he even punched out one guy he caught stealing drugs from his office. In that first binge watching I saw great stories about drug addiction, child abuse, illegal immigrants (and how they are exploited) and other really good ones. Brolin was awesome as the young bad-ass doc who rode a motorcycle and had the bedside manner and tact of a grisly bear, lol! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 9:11 am

Glee - TV Shows
Like a lot of people I watched an episode because I wanted to see the gay kid. Turns out he is the most annoying, stereo-typically offensive gay character ever on TV! The gays I know, both male and female are great, normal people busy with their lives. The kid on Glee is a super drama queen who is so full of himself he would jump over a dying friend in order to get to the mirror so he can kiss himself. Disgusting Hollywood garbage. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 8:54 am

Middle, The - TV Shows
I hated this show at first but gave it a chance and a couple of episodes later became a fan. It's not about the kids so much as it is about the parents dealing with them. I agree Neil Flynn and Pat Heaton are super together, very much an old married couple who love each other but seldom get mushy about it. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 8:42 am

Bates Motel - TV Shows
Wow, is this show kinky! Weird and disturbing doesn't even come close to describing it. Norman has a full on bone for his mom and likes to get cuddly with his brother when he isn't trying to murder him. So far the kid has killed his dad, his friend's dad, his teacher, and god knows who else. To see sweet young Freddie Highmore play a loony tunes sex-crazed serial killer is pretty disturbing. Just think, Charlie Bucket from Willie Wonka grew up to be Norman Bates! It really is a good show, Freddie is awesome and so are the people who play his mom and brother! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on June 7, 2014, 8:37 am

Crashbox - TV Shows
This was one of those educational shows that people forced kids to watch because they were "good for them" rather than because it was anything that any sane person would expect a kid to watch without being terrified. My mother insisted that my son loved Crashbox and made sure that he never missed it when he was visiting her...Of course she didn't have to contend with the nightmares he had that "Mr. Jumbles", a character with a microphone for a face, caused him to have for several months. We were really worried about him until we saw an episode and determined, yes this show was bloody scary!! -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on June 4, 2014, 9:59 pm

Clutch Cargo - TV Shows
A truly bizarre cartoon utilizing "Synchro-Vox", a curious innovation wherein the lower areas of the characters' faces are left blank and the lips of a real person speaking the dialog are superimposed there. Rarely seen today (I recall it from nearly forty years ago when TBS ran it about 5AM). There was a sci-fi cartoon, "Space Angel", from the same era, which also utilized "Synchro-Vox". It either boned from the start or never did, but it is weird to watch. (There are some clips on youtube). -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 4:19 pm

He has no background in economics but advises people on finances and budgets. He has no background in nutrition but advises people on diets and fitness.

All in the Family - TV Shows
Always enjoyed this show, til Mike and Gloria left. But felt the writers resorted to that hoary old "bring in a baby" when they ran out of ideas. In this show that plot gimmick was completely out of character for Mike and Gloria (Gloria was on the pill and Mike had considered a vasectomy and constantly said he did not want children). -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 4:02 pm

Price Is Right, The - TV Shows
One thing I hate about this show is that it is so flagrantly about marketing, not the game. The announcer will spend just as much time describing a can of soup as a new car (and why always specify a "NEW" car? have they ever given away a used car?). But my major complaint is the inequity of the bidding - the last bidder has all the options. If they think everyone else has overbid, they just say "one dollar". And I despise those idiots who pay no attention to the bidding at all, they're mugging for the camera, waving at friends in the audience, etc., often with their back to the stage; when it's their turn, "oh! I'm sorry, what was the highest bid?" - "the highest bid is 22 million dollars" - "I bid 22 million and one, Drew!" They should give each contestant a keypad so they enter their bids simultaneously. (BTW, I assume we're discussing the current daytime show, not the much better prime time show hosted by Bill Cullen fifty years ago.) -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 3:56 pm

I enjoyed Letterman as a stand-up comic and looked forward to his late night show. So disappointing!

Frasier - TV Shows
This show lost its focus and went downhill rapidly once Niles was free to pursue Daphne. Much of the original humor derived from Niles unrequited love for Daphne, evident to everyone except her, and to the hilarious references to the always unseen Maris. In the span of just a few episodes they removed all of this. Then the writers, now completely bereft of creativity, resorted to that hoary old sitcom ploy of bringing in a baby; in this case unrealistically and against character having Roz get pregnant. Daphne also changed drastically during this time; gone was the cute, sweet young lady with the beautiful long hair, attractive dresses, and humorous sarcasm... replaced by a mean-spirited harridan wearing pants and short hair. To complete this trainwreck, they parade Daphne's relatives every other episode; these people were not characters but caricatures, so obnoxious and distasteful that any episode in which they appear is virtually unwatchable. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 2:51 pm

Battlestar Galactica 1978 - TV Shows
"Starring Lorne Greene", who got about ten seconds of air time per episode. Other sci-fi shows at least tried to make us feel they took place in a future place and time; Cattlecar Galactica looked like they grabbed a busload of people from the nearest disco and dropped them onto a sci-fi set. And, in a sci-fi program, a lead character named "Starbuck"? (were the writers enamored of "The Jetsons"?) I am a long time sci-fi fan, but could never even sit through one episode of this. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 2:34 pm

Star Trek - Movie Series
JJ Abrams makes a Star Trek movie. And the result is "Frat Boys in Space". Honestly, has anyone involved in these Abrams abominations ever even seen an episode of Star Trek? I have the impression Abrams was given a list of Star Trek nomenclature and character names then given carte blanche to make whatever movie he wanted using those. Bears no other relation to anything else in the accepted Star Trek canon. Abrams not only boned the fish but flushed it down the drain. The weakest episode of TOS is magnitudes better than this garbage. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 2:25 pm

I remember when this show first came out. It was pretty funny, and Tea Leoni was great- a sexy, physical comedienne with great timing. The cast was good, and the tabloid back drop had a lot of potential. Unfortunately it was not given time to develop, and the morons of ABC got rid of it. I thought a saving grace was upon me when NBC picked it up. Unfortunately, like they love to do, those clowns retooled the entire show, got rid of the biting satire, muzzled all the actors, and brought in Norm. The show seriously boned, and it was finally but out of it's misery. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 21, 2014, 12:43 am

The judge in this case has ordered Mr. Kasem to be found- and the scary thing is that the man's in his 80's has advanced Parksinson's Disease and can no longer talk so WHY has he been hidden from his children and possibly taken abroad [and how likely would that have been HIS idea]? I had nothing against Mrs. Jean Kasem and thought she was okay in 'The Tortellis' but for her to evidently do this to his family [hom no one has alleged were a danger to him] is rather appalling IMO.

Timon & Pumbaa - TV Shows
People have mentioned the change in tone. Part of this stems from the aforementioned change of writers and directors, but also from the fact that despite Nathan Lane's prominent mention in press materials at the time - I was writing for an animation trade mag, so I actually saw them - two other actors, Quinton Flynn and Kevin Schlon, shared the role of Timon with him, each interpreting the role a little bit differently. I do agree with the criticism that this was a blatant attempt to cash in on a hit, while "playing it safe" by keeping Simba off to the side. Apparently, Disney had wanted to try something like this since unsuccessfully trying to launch a series for Tito of Oliver & Company. And once they did this and got away with it...Well, do I have to go any further? -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on May 10, 2014, 8:24 am

This looks like one of those shows when you take a glance at it, it looks like something too stupid to waste time on. The animation hurt my eyes the first time I saw this, and the voices made me cringe. But I took a chance on Netflix, and could not believe how funny this show is. It has surprisingly good chemistry, great comic timing, and a sincere level of detail I would have never guessed. That H. Jon is a truly talented voice actor. He's perfect as Bob. I am glad I took a chance on this bizarre little comedy, it really is far more clever and funny than a hundred MacFarlane animated shows. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 1:08 am

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - TV Shows
I love this show. Once again I was late to the party, so I did not start watching until the fifth season. I enjoyed it so much I bought all the DVDs back then. I still like this show, I just finished watching the entire run again just two days ago on amazon prime. Buffy is without a doubt one of TV's best characters ever. Her Willow and Xander had great chemistry, and Giles was great. I was never a fan of Cordelia, so I am glad she left. I did like Oz, and wish he lasted longer. Spike is also an integral character, richly developed over the years, absolutely necessary. I don't get why all the hate on poor Dawn. I thought she was beautiful. Probably unnecessary, but I liked how she always pushed Buffy's buttons. Overall one of the best shows ever. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 12:43 am

This was a family favorite growing up. It was pretty good for the first few years. I thought Tracy Gold was a criminally underrated actress. She was really great.

It was fun when Boner and Eddie joined Mike for a little trouble-making. That Boner was a fun weirdo, rest his soul. The show definitely boned when Mike became a Jesus freak and the entire dynamic changed into forgettable fluff. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 12:26 am

This is a fairly cheesy sitcom that I recall only because I had a crush on that Staci. I thought she was the highlight of the show. I did not care for her father Burke, he will always be a sleazebag after he tried to kill Ripley and Newt. The other father was supposed to be the cool father, but he was utterly forgettable. Overall an inoffensive, if boring show. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 10, 2014, 12:15 am

Garfield (comic strip) - Random Topics
I think the old Garfield and Friends cartoon show is infinitely more entertaining than the strip itself. And I found out that Jim Davis no longer draws the actual strip now a days. I guess that explains why Garfield's most recent character design looks so bad. I guess it isn't because his feet are too big but because his body has gotten so small. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on May 6, 2014, 11:41 pm

Lol @ the "Flashbacks" reason....like I said before, I personally don't think GG ever actually jumped the shark, but that particular reason reminded me of an episode where the girls had a flashback during the middle of another flashback lol!

Will & Grace - TV Shows
Truly one of the worst shows NBC produced. Typical sit-com stereotypes, lame writing and obnoxious characters. How the heck did this last so long? I could never get through an entire episode either. Good gravy that Karen's voice was so grating and her character was so unlikeable. Hopefully this tripe fades away quickly with little fanfare like other shows that lasted way longer than they should have (I'm looking at you According to Jim and Home Improvement) -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 6, 2014, 12:05 am

I could never get into this show, way too sappy, fake and annoying. I do vaguely remember an episode where someone ran their car into the HOUSE and if I recall correctly, the parent didn't do a damn thing about it! WTF? Not in my house baby! You can't just drive you car into the kitchen and think there aren't going to be some fucking consequences. One of the many reasons why I could never get into "Full House". -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on May 1, 2014, 8:53 pm

Designing Women - TV Shows
To me it boned when Delta left. But I must add that Julia Sugarbaker always hopping on her soapbox giving random speeches was an annoying thing to witness. Most of the time, the speeches weren't necessary and had little to do with what was being discussed. "Hey Julia, we're out of milk" "Do I look like the milk maid? My God, after all the things women have accomplished through the years, and you people still try to oppress and degrade us! Well, as a Southern woman, I WILL NOT stand for it!" Jesus Christ. Those rants were usually unprovoked and got too preachy. But when Delta left that's when I noticed a big dip in quality. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on May 1, 2014, 8:21 pm

Yeah, the ultra-pc, extremist left CRAP got SO hard to watch,,,like the time the episode with the Nannites,,,no Captain with any brains or guts would turn over a member of his crew to an alien race for judgement,,,,,and you knew that they were running out of ideas when they started to have episodes based completely around the holodeck, though I did like Moriarty,,,,the worst were all the eps with Worf and Alexander,,,,, -- Submitted By: (Arkady) on April 29, 2014, 5:20 pm

Battlestar Galactica 1978 - TV Shows
They lost a HUGE amount of funding because Lucas sued for copyright infringement, completely ridiculous, TOTALLY different premise than Star Wars,,,,so funding was RADICALLY cut, this is the cause of the majority of the complaints on here,,,,i.e., little to no special effects, characters disappearing,,,,then it was moved to a Sunday night format where the FCC had decreed that all Sunday night programming had to be educational,,,so no more cool laser fights,,,,by then it was just Apollo and Starbuck ferrying a bunch of stupid kids (Jason, Moonstone, and Starla, anyone?) around, flying motorcycles,,,,and lots of other stupid crap but the station had to do the best they were given,,,,I don't even want to talk about how Godawful G1980 was,,,,except the last episode with the return of Starbuck,,,,,one part that was unintentionally hilarious was how in the voiceovers Starbuck sounds like a polished poet, and the quality of the special effects went down with Cy the Cylon because the suits wanted to have a character that was more identifiable so you can actually hear the actors tones in Cy's dialogue,,,,,never could really get into the new ones, though there were a few good scenes,,,, -- Submitted By: () on April 29, 2014, 4:45 pm

V (1984) - TV Shows
The miniseries was good, they "dumbed it down" for a TV audience with the half-breed girl, Elizabeth "magically" absorbing the force of the bomb. In the book it made MUCH more sense,she was a prodigy, and she saved the day, but by programming the countdown into an endless loop so the bomb would never explode. The TV show boned almost immediately by killing off main characters like Elias and Martin, cheap special effects, Donovan captured/escaping over and over,,,,,we didn't have "Bone the Fish" as a statement back then, but I remember thinking that as a thirteen-year old kid! And the recently-released sequel novels all sucked too,,,,the original novels during the eighties were okay but the CRAP released in the last few years were garbage,,,seemed more interested in talking about deviant sex acts between humans and Visitors than anything else,,,,, -- Submitted By: () on April 29, 2014, 3:03 pm

Batman (1966) - TV Shows
Season 2 was, for most of its run, disappointingly missing the Riddler. Not only my favourite guest villain, but the fan favourite, which is why Frank Gorshin was asking so much money to return to the role. In response to the fans missing him, ultimately, near the end of the season, they recast the Riddler, to violently negative reaction, with Gomez Addams. Needless to say, they never did THAT again, and they paid Frank Gorshin his asking price for season 3. But, it was too late. The damage had been done. The show was over. And to all those people complaining this wasn't the gritty dark knight you're so familiar with today, this was the 1960's. Silver Age Batman... Compared to the comics, this WAS the gritty dark knight you're familiar with... This was about the time Batman was married to Batwoman and had a Bat Ape as a pet, and a bat cave in outer space so he could fight aliens... Sure, it was campy compared to TODAY'S Batman, but it laid the groundwork for sobering up an incredibly silly Batman for a more mature interpretation. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 28, 2014, 9:40 am

Good Times - TV Shows
I may be in the minority here but I found Florida to be annoying, especially when she would get on her soapbox all the time over random stuff. Then my dislike for her reached new levels whenever she tried to make James give the money he found back. Ummm WTF?! Let me get this straight, you and your whole family are DIRT POOR, living in the projects, barely have any food, and your husband finds $27,000 in a random paper bag and all you can say is "give it back James"? Hell, I would have kept every penny, and moved the hell out of there. Let Florida stay in the ghetto if she loved it there so much. But what does she turn around and do after James dies? Marries Carl and leaves her family in the projects after keeping them there for so long. What a role model. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 26, 2014, 8:48 am

And regarding that SD pin, I totally agree. Come on, they'd show Cliff and Clair getting into bed and Cliff had the damn thing pinned to his PAJAMAS! At that point it was really getting ridiculous.

Like I said before, ridiculous.... -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 26, 2014, 8:39 am

Golden Girls, The - TV Shows
I don't think it actually ever jumped the shark (or boned the fish) but I do find a lot of the continuity errors to be very irritating a lot of the time. Of course, it would never stop me from watching the show, but it was annoying at times (for example, the number of kids Blanche had sometimes changed, hell even Blanche's middle name was changed so that her initials could be B.E.D.,) and wtf was up with Miles being in the Witness Protection Program?? I admit that there was a point where everyone seemed to become caricatures of themselves (Rose becomes even dumber, Blanche is the biggest slut in the world and it is referenced in almost every line, etc) but even then the show was still funnier than many other shows. There are many funny episodes throughout the series but the ones I could not stand were really bad (Mr. Terrific, Brother Can U Spare That Jacket, Empty Next, etc). I also didn't like Not Another Monday, because Sophia's "friend" was straight up creepy and the storyline was depressing. "I bought you this dinner because I want you to be there with me when I kill myself" *grins widely* Straight up CREEPY..... -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 25, 2014, 1:01 am

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
I am in stitches over some of these Pam comments. Now, let me just go on the record and say, I didn't actually "hate" Pam and company, but I do understand where some of you are coming from regarding your opinions about her character. First of all, "Cousin Pam". Do you call your cousins, "Cousin Lisa" or "Cousin Jeff"? Secondly, Pam had never even been mentioned in any episodes in the past, so why was the audience expected to suddenly care about this random cousin who we knew virtually nothing about, and not only her but her friends too? Were we expected to care JUST because Pam was from the hood? Did they want a cookie for it? Lots of people are from the hood but that doesn't mean they should get to completely take over a sitcom. So yes, many fans were puzzled and annoyed, because it was so random and unnecessary. It seemed incredibly superfluous as well. I still remember that day when I was flipping through the channels looking for the Cosby Show, but instead of I found what looked like to be, "Cousin Pam and Friends". I sat there with the remote in my hand totally confused, thinking, "Who the hell are these people? Where's Cliff? Where's Rudy? WTF?" -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 25, 2014, 12:49 am

About the 600th time Beaver proudly stated the lie, "Well gee Dad, I sure learned my lesson!" then turns around and does some dumb shit again next week. I actually think LITB is a classic show.

Martin (TV Series) - TV Shows
I don't get how the writers could've possibly thought making Cole a complete idiot would be funny. At the beginning of Season 1, he was slow (and odd) but not quite as stupid as he ended up being later on. The "Tommy doesn't have a job" or "What does Tommy do" thing was funny at first but eventually became corny and predictable after like the third time. Why did Martin care anyway?? He was acting as if he was Tommy's boyfriend or something. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 25, 2014, 12:29 am

Dora the Explorer - TV Shows
And why the hell is Dora's ass never in school? What kind of parents let their kid roam around in wooded areas, mountaintops, rivers etc with a monkey? And I'm sorry, but this show promotes the falsification that if someone takes your stuff, yelling at them will get them to give it back, then they'll simply say "AWWW MAN!" and walk away. Wtf? Good luck with that. Also, Dora may be multilingual, but she is STILL as dumb as a brick. She stands in front of a pink waterfall and shouts, "I NEED YOUR HELP! CAN YOU HELP US FIND THE PINK WATERFALL?" *stares at audience for 5 minutes without blinking* Even Boots has this look on his face like he is thinking, "Why am I even hanging out with this fucktard?" Either Dora needs to get a fucking GPS or start going to class, because she can't find shit that is right behind her, is best friends with a monkey and a singing bookbag, and wears skimpy clothing when she's supposed to be like 7 years old. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 25, 2014, 12:24 am

Captain Planet and the Planeteers - TV Shows
I don't think there are words that can properly express my hatred of this show and all it's characters. First of all, this is supposed to be a kids' show. So why in the hell is this show about saving the environment, ozone layer, and recycling? And I know the show is trying to make little kids conscious about pollution and all that stuff, but come on, they are KIDS. And this is a cartoon! You only get to be a kid once. It force feeds them preachy messages about shit they couldn't care less about. When this would come on, I used to immediately change the channel. I never wanted to see some blue dude who obviously had no wife or gf, fly around the city with a bunch of kids, bitching about how people don't care about Earth and how we are all going to die if you accidentally drop a Coke can in the bottle bin. I have no problem with recycling, and I do it, but Captain Planet was so damn dramatic. Even if I decide to not recycle one day, we are not all "doomed" and it would not make me an evil person. LOL. To top it off, the show was boring as hell, a damn snoozefest. "Captain Planet" was one of the lamest so-called superheroes in the history of the world. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 25, 2014, 12:06 am

A.N.T. Farm - TV Shows
I don't have a problem with China Anne McClain. HOWEVER, Chyna Parks can be quite an irritating character. A lot of the time, Chyna thinks she knows everything (just because she's in the ANT program) and even shitted on her own brother for not being as "talented" as she and the other ANTS. I know her supposed talent is singing, but ANT Farm is a tv show, not a musical, so why would you belt out a song at the water fountain in the hallway, aren't you supposed to be in class? Oh wait, that's right, the ANTS hardly EVER go to class, all they do is hang out at IHOW (even though it is not a safe place to eat, or hang out for that matter), play on their ANT Pads, and stand in the middle of the hall gloating. Why go to high school if you aren't going to do anything?? Fletcher isn't that bad but the way Chyna treated him made me wonder WHY he even had a crush on her in the first place, or why they were even friends for that matter. Granted, Chyna is a cute girl and all, but she friendzoned him (through SONG) in front of a bunch of ppl in a restaurant. Wtf? And don't get me started on Olive. Yes she is intelligent, but she is way too arrogant about it, just because you're a walking computer doesn't mean you can shit on everybody else, especially when you admitted to being scared of curly fries in one episode. Once again, WTF? -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on April 24, 2014, 11:55 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
I wouldn't say Season 6 is where it officially jumped because there are some great/classic episodes in S6, like A Stash from the Past, Lies My Father Told Me and Don't Ask Don't Tell, just to name a few. Season 6 is an above average season in general. Honestly, Season 7 is when things got a lot less funny and characters seemed to become complete caricatures of themselves. I have no problem with women cutting their hair, but for some reason, as soon as Jackie cut her hair, it was like "BAM, I'm going to act like a cross between Ellen DeGeneres and Barney Fife now!". I personally think the show should have ended at the end of S6, because the show would have went out on a high note. But instead, it went on for 3 more utterly unnecessary seasons, in which Jackie's character suddenly exists only to pop into a room, grimace and say something insanely slapstick, clutch onto Andy for dear life, and go right back out. She and Roseanne didn't even seem close anymore at that point. Another thing I noticed is that, even though I liked David, he began getting more airtime than necessary (more than DARLENE, DJ, JACKIE, etc) and Mark went from being the smooth bad boy/rebel (think "Fonz" from Happy Days) to being dumber than a box of rocks. But the actual shark jump moment that there was absolutely no turning back from was when the hit the lottery. The sharks had been swarming around for awhile before that, but when the Conners were suddenly multimillionaires the shark was jumped, maimed, and suffered a bloody gory death. The lottery episode was completely uncalled for, unrealistic and it also went against everything the show was supposed to be about in the first place. That was the definite point of no return, and the show continued to head into a continuous downward spiral for the rest of it's run. After they won the lottery, the charm of the show was gone, the characters (which had already started to become caricatures of their former selves) were no longer funny, relatable, and the chemistry that they used to have was absent. Everything was suddenly awkward and no longer even felt like "Roseanne". -- Submitted By: () on April 24, 2014, 11:44 pm

2010s - Random Topics
I agree with Dollfan. It really just does seem that the technological advancements are aimed to see how fast and easy you can access Facebook/Twitter etc. Doing things we've done before or had already achieved yet we somehow need to figure it out how to make it even easier. Just like smartphones and tablets. They all function the same with very little difference and they all even remotely look the same. Do the same things, have the same apps and everything. That's not advancing, that's running in place. It reminded me back in the decade before, with cellphones. Everyone was trying to make slimmer and smaller phones and advertise them as different, when they did the same functions. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on April 24, 2014, 3:29 am

Amazing Chan and the Chan Clan, The - TV Shows
I watched this when I was a kid because I knew the character from the Earl Derr Biggers novels and the old movies. It was cool that the movie "Number One Son" Keye Luke played Chan. Not so cool that Number One Son Henry's singing voice was Ron Dante, which meant he sounded just like Archie Andrews! And doubly uncool is that while the producers made a huge deal about this being the first time that an Asian-born actor played Chan, they also fired most of the Asian-American actors who voiced the Chan kids in the pilot! Also, this show had to hold the record for the largest number of animation gaffes in history! In just about every episode, the wrong character's mouth is moving when a line is read, particularly in scenes featuring the two oldest brothers. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on April 23, 2014, 9:35 pm

Chick Tracts - Random Topics
A Chick Tract led me to the Lord, but Mr. Chick is a bit opinionated. I attended a Catholic Mass this past Easter, Mary (That's Jesus Mother for those of you in Rio Linda!) was mentioned only once, DISPROVING Catholics are nothing more than a bunch of stark raving Mary Worshipers. As a matter of fact they mentioned many of the same things my church (Baptist)did. They mentioned that Adam and Eve caused sin to enter this world, and all of us have sinned one time or another. They also said the "Blessed Hope" (That's The Rapture for those of you in Rio Linda!) could take place at any time. IMHO Catholics are Christians, they just worship god differently, and there is NOTHING wrong with that. PS if Jack Chick thinks he knows EVERYTHING about Christians there is a little test he can take. Fill an olympic sized pool with water. Put in 10,000 HUNGRY Piranhas (This is Optional but it kind of makes things a little more interesting LOL). Mr Chick will then walk the length of the pool. If he's 100% right it shouldn't be any problem. What's that, you aren't 100% right? In that case Bon Appetit Fishies! -- Submitted By: () on April 21, 2014, 12:12 pm
