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.

Life and Times of Grizzly Adams, The - TV Shows
I used to laugh in the opening credits when Grizzly was seen opening a gate at the edge of the wilderness and walking through- a gate that was completely unattached to any fence or wall. Who built a gate without a fence or wall and why- and why would Grizzly not just walk around it? LOL I also liked Denver Pyle's banter and actually thought hearing his griping about frontier life was more entertaining than Grizzly's seeming obliviousness to any hardship . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 26, 2013, 10:29 am

Burns and Allen Show, The - TV Shows
Hateol, Thanks for your post on this show. My parents couldn't get enough of this duo so I couldn't wait to see it for myself when it reran on CBN in the 1980's. Gracie ruled with her illogical logic and George's deadpan delivery having to deal with all the craziness but NEVER losing his temper no matter how frustrated and confused he got was classic. It's hard to believe now but when Gracie retired then died a few years later, there was serious doubt that George would have any kind of career on his own but to his credit he forged ahead quite well. BTW, not only were they excellent verbal comedians but they were also quite skilled dancers. Check out' Damsel in Distress' [1937] when the two of them danced WITH Fred Astaire. Not easy to turn a dance between a male/female duo into one for a two men/one woman trio but they did it flawlessly and completely tastefully. Last of all, although George admitted [at her funeral] that he wasn't always a 'true husband' and definitely had an eye for pretty girls to the end, I think it was cool that when he died, not only was he buried with her but he had arranged for the epitaph to read simply 'Together Again'. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on November 26, 2013, 10:23 am

My Name is Earl - TV Shows
This was certainly an original show, didn't start watching it until late, and then NBC cancelled it, so I could have been a fan, but oh well.

Mind of Mencia - TV Shows
I recall this lackluster show came on the heels of Chappelle Show. They wanted a Latin comic to flavor Comedy central after Dave's huge success. The show was very racially motivated, unfortunately this show was not very funny.

Donahue - TV Shows
I remember this show growing up, my mother watched it often. He was mostly irritating to me, but he did bring to the table a host of important subjects. He also had celebrities.

Charmings, The - TV Shows
This was a fun show when I was growing up. It certainly had an inventive plot unlike most shows on tv at the time.

Unlike most I enjoyed the show. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on November 25, 2013, 9:20 pm

Batman (1966) - TV Shows
When my son was two or three, he brought a book over to me that had a picture of Adam West in costume. "Look Mommy," he beamed, "It's Happy Batman!" I think what he was getting at was that this was the only version of Batman he'd seen that ever cracked a smile. Is it Batman the way we see him in today's comics? Well, no. But in the 1960's, it made a number of kids, yours truly included, curious enough to learn to read so that we could enjoy the four-color Caped Crusader. And come on, at least there were no nipples on the Bat-Suits! -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 21, 2013, 10:22 pm

Hammerman - TV Shows
This was not really so much a cartoon as a series of poorly drawn images that were vaguely related. On "Raw Toonage", Disney took a swipe at this one, as a superhero called Badly Animated Man (voiced by Gary Owens) tells a group of grateful citizens, "Wherever rap stars have their own shows, I'll be there."

The way I see it, the songs that spend 10 or more weeks at #1 are automatic grammy nominations even if the song is horrible. That means that an annoying song like 'Blurred Lines' with it's sexist lyrics and awful rap interlude by TI will no doubt be nominated for record of the year, maybe even song of the year.

Night Court - TV Shows
This was a family favorite for many years. It was a truly looney show full of laughs. My sisters and me would come home from school and even catch the reruns on syndication. We sat around together every Thursday night to watch the crazy antics and Harry and company and the constant carnival of bizarre defendants to enter the court. Our favorite was Dan Fielding of course. He was the funniest, most selfish, most sex-crazed character I had ever seen in my young TV viewing experience. But I have to admit the later years were losing the quality of the earlier years when Dan was at his most perverse, before he got his soul. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on November 20, 2013, 8:01 pm

@ProfessorBone. YES! YES! YES! That is exactly what the concept of this show is. Outside of previews by channel surfing I have not subjugated myself to this show - with exception of one YouTube clip highlighting a forced eyebrow wax. The beautician in that video was an absolute fucking bitch about it. In all seriousness, why the fucking fuck would something like this actually be considered okay? Children are not surposed to go through this in a functioning democracy! Some of the things done for beauty pagents (and even for "beauty" in general) by the parents to the children is ..... fucking disgusting. But back to the main point, this is free pornographic fodder for pedophiles - one time South Park unapologetically sunk its claws into making fun of and insulting. -- Submitted By: () on November 17, 2013, 7:47 pm

American Pickers - TV Shows
Here's my fantasy episode: Mike goes out on a pick to Antarctica and his plane goes down never to be heard from again! My god that guy is so full of himself! I still like the show mostly because of Frank and Danielle. Mike's brother Robby is pretty cool but they hardly ever feature him. Frank is so much more down to earth than Mike and I bet he makes better deals. Go to the American Pickers web site, it's ALL about Mike Wolfe, how its his business, his show, his this, his that! I was at a restaurant in Florida when Mike and Frank "just showed up" lol! The owner told be later that it had been planned for weeks and asked me to lunch that day because he thought I'd get a kick out of it. When the show aired it showed the guys driving around and making a spur of the moment decision to stop into a seafood place and they ended up picking its storeroom at the suggestion of some customer and the owner "just happened" to be there although he has several other businesses and is almost never at the restaurant. Like I said, weeks of planning and it still came off as staged. I love it when they show the two guys just rolling up to some guy's house and introducing themselves and asking to look around. Yeah, right, just the two "Iowa corn cobs" a video production van, a couple of cameramen and a sound crew! Phony, phony phony! And probably a couple of lawyers! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on November 14, 2013, 5:32 pm

It's boned many times, but one of the biggest ones was when the McMahon family actually started wrestling in matches. Of course wrestling is fake, but the ability to suspend belief and get into the matches is what allowed many, including myself, to enjoy it. Now that Vince, son Shane and daughter(!!!) Stephanie are able to maybe not win but at least hold their own against Flair, Hogan, Undertaker, Kane, etc for an entire match just ruins the illusion for me. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on November 14, 2013, 9:25 am

Robert, The Hobbit was first published in 1937 and was 317 long. Not a short story, never was, never will be, Jackson does go long on running times but the NOVEL was extremely complicated.

New York City - Random Topics
The best of the three major cities and the best city in the US (even today), however it was the 1960s that NYC boned the fish. It suffered terribly and never recovered. The answer...attract yuppies from out of town and displace the natives, homeless, and ethnic-Americans. The city may have turned around, but not in the right way. However, NYC still has some of its classic self remaining. At least isn't that much like Chicago (as nasty as it gets) or LA (runner up, but spoiled big time with flakes). New York's boroughs gave the world many legends and innovators too. History would be downright different without the existence of New York City. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 12, 2013, 9:07 pm

Los Angeles - Random Topics
I am going to say something different, albeit from a prejudiced perspective...the natives. Whether they have been there for years, or born/raised in LA itself, they act incredibly self-centered. LA really is a wasteland, like a few other folks said. The natives of this city are purely nuts. Maybe not all of them, but LA at one time was also known (in my own words) as the richest, whitest, WASP city in America. LA had a scary history once these people came from the east to settle. The city grew, but it was always "suburbs in search of a city." With the boom came doom. I really do not think LA ever had "glory/salad days." Then came the 70s, 80s, and 90s. There were race riots, more sprawl, more smog, and the superficial natives act as if their grass is greener than the rest of America. I will admit, when most of your days are "sunny and 70 something," I guess the natives have rhyme and reason to act like that. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 12, 2013, 9:01 pm

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
We thought Bush was awful...Obama inherited the title of worst US president (along with an already dismal economy) from the day he was nominated. I have never heard of a political leader like him in my life. There had been some awful ones before. It will be interesting to see how much more stupid legislation gets passed before his time is finally up. We are certainly no better off than we were four years ago. If the primaries were not fixed five years ago (so he could be nominated and elected), I do not think we would have had to experience the endless parade of nastiness he has forced upon the American people. Also, if I had to pick the one thing that irks me the most about Obama, it's that he apologizes for everything. WTF? This man is the king of PC is afraid to have fun doing anything (besides taking almost as much time off from the White House as Bush did, and bullying hard-working Americans). Clearly, Obamacare has proved to be a failure, straight out of the gate. A number of people, including liberals, are rallying to repeal the debacle. He just keeps on boning and boning.

Birdman and the Galaxy Trio - TV Shows
When you watch this and other shows of the 60's, you really need to do them in the appropriate frame of mind. For example, to a present day viewer, in the notorious "Ant Ape" episode, it's hilarious when Birdman looks at a giant Ant Ape-shaped hole in the side of a building and then wonders if the huge monster walking away from the wreckage is responsible! But I remember these very fondly. Incidentally, apparently the writers did devise a detailed history for Birdman, originally a secret agent named Ray Randall, but little of it ever appeared on screen.

Full House - TV Shows
We have to remember that ABC was at its very height (and #1 at times) during this show's run (back and forth with NBC, depending on the day of the week). ABC was also transitioning during the time as well. Full House defines this era perfectly. Sure, it was saccharine, sappy, and surreal, but not so bad. That was the trend of that period. I would still say boned day one. If some of the writing could have been changed during the father-child talk moments, it would different. I am appalled that instead of a severe punishment, the kids got by with a hug and little to no being yelled at. You didn't see that on The Cosby Show, did you? At least the Huxtables got punished when they did something wrong. Both were part of the family-friendly sitcom period. I think Full House may have predicted ABC's future with Disney as well when you think about it. I think the sappiness and preaching are the two, main problems. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 10, 2013, 6:55 pm

Three Stooges Short Films - Movie Series
Each third stooge brought something unique and of their own to the act. We always hear about individuality, so why should be any put downs of Shemp or Joe Besser? Shemp revived the act beautifully, but I fully agree that the four, fake Shemp shorts were terrible. I hate watching them and they are shown more than not, which isn't right. Joe Besser was only added because there was still time left on Stooges' contract with Columbia. Also, it was downright difficult to find a replacement for Shemp and Curly. So, don't expect much for Besser shorts. TV at the time was the latest and greatest technology. The Besser shorts were made on a low budget, filmed sometimes in just one day (a few hours), and with recycled footage dating back to the Curly years in some instances (eg. "Sappy Bullfighters" final, released short). Not surprisingly, the final years (production and release of the Besser shorts- 1957 to 1959) were the beginning of the end for the Stooges. The shorts department literally shut down after "Flying Saucer Daffy" was shot. Besser's wife was ailing. Harry Cohn, long time president of Columbia died in February (correct me if I'm wrong) of 1958. Not surprisingly, everything after that with Joe DeRita just wasn't as funny or the same. I could not even watch more than a few minutes of any full length movies made after 1959. The TV revival, if I am not mistaken, probably kept the Stooges going until the end of the next decade, when Larry suffered that stroke. Honestly, there were a few of the Curly shorts that I do not like, such as Rythym and Weep. Not all of the Curly shorts were comedy gold, but it looks like the vast majority like Curly the most. I want to add that 1946 was not a good year for the act. There were a few, weak shorts made before that, but much of the year consisted of bombs and flops. When you watch most of the shorts made and released that year (with Curly), you knew Curly's days were numbered with the act. Again, Shemp's availability and interest upon returning to the act gave the Stooges a much needed boost. It helped into the first half of the 1950s. Finally, in order to watch and appreciate Joe Besser, you have to learn how to make fun of his character. In a way, it encourages viewer reaction and participation. The shorts with Tiny were indeed terrible, especially when singing is involved. -- Submitted By: () on November 8, 2013, 8:12 pm

New Adventures of Old Christine, The - TV Shows
Hamish Linklatter was the only reason I ever watched this show! Julia, whom I usually like, was disappointing, her brother Matthew (Hamish) however was funny as hell and really hot! I spent hours trying to figure out if his character was gay, I mean he used to wear a cape to high school, loved musicals, had a domineering mother and he was like 30 years old and lived with his sister. If he wasn't gay he sure should have been! -- Submitted By: (sharp143) on November 8, 2013, 2:31 pm

Hobbit, The - Movie Series
I can't really judge the series properly until the trilogy is completed, but it seems excessive and I can't help be cynical about the motives. (Three movies instead of just one = more $$$$$$$) An even longer cut of the first one comes out this month. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 7, 2013, 1:56 pm

Salute Your Shorts - TV Shows
Graet show about realistic kids, although it may have semi-boned when Eric McArthur left the show. I was his age when the show was first on and I thought he was really cute, in fact I had a crush on him. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on November 7, 2013, 7:13 am

Hobbit, The - Movie Series
Robert, the films are based on 4 novels, each well over 300 pages long, some are closer to 400: The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King). Collectively they represent almost 1,500 pages. That's some short story! Crack a book before you criticize, or at least Google. Calling The Hobbit and its sequels a short story is like calling the Encyclopedia Britanica a pamphlet. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on November 7, 2013, 7:10 am

Doctor Who - TV Shows
As always on forums like this, there seems to be a lot of "Baker Bashing" (Colin). Please remember that he had very little influence in the direction the show was taking, and was - and continues to be - one of its most eloquent advocates. He did try to fight for quality scripts, and even a more sedate costume and was paid back with nasty on-screen jokes about his weight gain during his second season, followed by an unceremonious sacking. When allowed to be, he is a wonderful actor. Yes, The Twin Dilemma is a HORRIBLE story, but much is made right by that very moving moment where he calmly talks to the dying Azmael. And how can you not love his work opposite Patrick Troughton in The Two Doctors or Kate O'Mara in Mark of the Rani? Thankfully, Big Picture has given him the opportunity to shine in their Doctor Who audio dramas, which have a bittersweet quality to me because they show what we could have had, not just with Colin but also Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 6, 2013, 8:23 pm

13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, The - TV Shows
I wouldn't say this show actually rocked - Daphne turned into a frumpy single mom with an annoying adopted kid she apparently bought from Indiana Jones, and well, Scrappy was still hanging around. However, this time the ghosts real instead of "Old Man Smithers" in a fright mask, and it did have not only Vincent Price but also the late, great Phil Hartman. Those points do buy it some good will with me. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 6, 2013, 8:01 pm

Pinky, Elmyra &the Brain - TV Shows
I'm sure that the writers knew this was coming when they wrote the Pinky and the Brain episode "Pinky, The Brain and Larry", in which an extra character that doesn't belong was shoehorned into the show. Elmyra was a hideous creation who really didn't deserve to be spotlighted anywhere, let alone on a show that worked fine without her. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 6, 2013, 7:56 pm

Burns and Allen Show, The - TV Shows
While there are plenty of opportunities to savor the brilliance of George Burns, there are comparatively few ways to enjoy his partner in all things, the great Gracie Allen. I was not overly familiar with her when I started watching Burns and Allen on Antenna TV, but I was quickly hooked. She's absolutely mesmerizing when she talks about her assorted relatives or applies her offbeat logic to simple household tasks. (She puts boiling water in the freezer so she'll have some ready whenever she needs it.) George may have brought home an Oscar, but in truth, this was about as equal a partnership as you're ever likely to see. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on November 6, 2013, 7:53 pm

Lawrence Welk Show, The - TV Shows
Too young to have been around to watch it in its prime. I took some peaks of this show a decade ago on my crappy PBS affiliate. That nasty goth, Bob Ralston (with an IQ of like 200, but a sick, twisted mind) was smug, nasty, and rude. What do expect from someone who brought classical music training and talent of his to the show? He always dressed and looked like a queer. I think Bob Ralston should be included in the reasons this show boned. I don't know my attitude would have changed if I were around to remember watching this show when it first aired. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 6, 2013, 7:32 pm

Wheel of Fortune - TV Shows
Wheel of Fortune boned around the same time as Jeopardy (1997-ish). First came the digital letter board (touch instead of turn). The game jumped further the next season with a largely, abbreviated theme song. The contestants chosen became more obnoxious too. It's safe to say that you have to be on happy pills in order to be a contestant on this show. Too much clapping is a legitimate reason, although that dates back to around 1990 at the earliest. Applause breaks during spins, after a successfully guessed letter, and so forth. What really boned for Wheel of Fortune were all the edits to the spins and gameplay, over a decade ago. Constant advertisements/promotions and longer commercial breaks took all the fun of watching it at home. I will also add too many "toss up" type puzzles as well. I remember a number episodes that had one or two that took such a long time to solve years ago. I don't think you get that today. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 6, 2013, 7:25 pm

Jeopardy! - TV Shows
I wish, I really wish Jeopardy! would have remained a program for people with the highest IQs. As a whole, it boned when Art Fleming left. The Fleming version never boned. It was much easier to watch and much more fun to enjoy. The Trebek version boned numerous times. The set, music, podiums, and presentation should have been left alone. Adding a clue crew made it nearly unwatchable. Dumbing down and adding "mindless humor" wasn't wise either. The Celebrity Tournaments became less enjoyable as well, especially the few that were at Radio City Music Hall. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 6, 2013, 7:15 pm

Muppet Show, The - TV Shows
My favorite episodes..Mark Hammill, Rodger Moore and Christopher Reeve episodes...plus the fact that all three episodes "winked" at the three respective roles each actor was famous for..and even as pre teen kid back then in 78 or s0 I got it. -- Submitted By: (richardparker) on November 6, 2013, 7:11 pm

Good Charlotte - Music Groups
I am not the biggest fan of this band, but I will say at least they did not try too hard for their image. They had a few songs which were decent and enjoyable, and are all round a passable band. No classic but I cannot say they really boned anywhere. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on November 5, 2013, 7:02 am

Miley Cyrus - Celebrities
I don't generally like to comment on topics such as this simply because I believe she knows exactly what she's doing. Negative attention is her marketable trait, at least in her mind. It's not a break down like Brittany spears had. She's loving this negative attention that she's receiving. It will some how make her a lot of money. Besides, it's not like her father was a wholesome fella himself. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on November 4, 2013, 10:22 am

Son of the Beach - TV Shows
Still rocks when you put it into perspective. At first glance, the show comes off like a bubble-headed juvenile trash-TV comedy. Juvenile comedy did abound on the show, but what it was REALLY doing was parodying just about everything else on the air at the time -- most obviously, Baywatch and Survivor -- and it did that quite well. Son of the Beach did what it set out to do, and never really had a BTF moment, so by that standard it still rocks. In the interest of full disclosure, this show doesn't even make the top 100 list of DVD boxsets I'd want to buy, but I do have to give it due credit for achieving the goal it set for itself. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 4, 2013, 8:29 am

Johnnydough: Thanks for the Dailymotion recommendation. Though it still has ads you're forced to watch, the copyright restrictions are somewhat lax compared to Youtube.

This Old House - TV Shows
I agree with the majority, but wanted to add that the when This Old House was new (in its infancy), no one gave a f*** about old homes (those built before 1950 or so) at the time. Teardowns and abandoned, antique structures were commonplace nationwide. All of sudden, we now regret doing that, and we care about historic preservation.

Miley Cyrus - Celebrities
I hate the current trend of "going alternative/punk rock." It does not suit Miley Cyrus at all. I was never a fan, but her rebellious image is unacceptable. She's at least 10x more indecent and nasty now, versus when she was Hannah Montana/jailbait. She's disgusting and too in-your-face, loud, and obnoxious. I hope she joins the "27 club," if she doesn't start changing for the better. I understand what Disney does to manipulate youth, but Miley should have made changes for the better/herself. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 3, 2013, 8:07 pm

Demi Lovato - Celebrities
When you idolize nothing but smarta**es like Kelly Clarkson, what do you expect? The whole anti-bullying s*** has gone too far. She is a proud product of hard, left-wing liberals and represents a freedom stealing society. Not to mention that she should be singing opera or metal because all she does is scream and shout. She does not truly sing anything. Even her material for Disney had autotune in it. Very awful attitude in real life. She only respects those that like her smug and incompetent personality. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 3, 2013, 8:03 pm

YouTube for folks me, is an escape from the endless parade of obnoxious bulls*** that is thrown around 24/7 these days. The problem I have (if I had to choose) are the ads. We are not interested in any of the useless bulls*** you are trying to sell us. For everyone like me, I recommend installing Ad Block Plus. It works on every browser and you can watch as many videos as you want, without the ads. It's a little secret I found out. I am also happy that alternatives like Daily Motion exist. Now to do something (if we can) about the log-in problems. -- Submitted By: () on November 3, 2013, 7:56 pm
