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.

CSI Miami - TV Shows
People say it was when Jesse Cardoza was on when the show went downhill. I beg to differ. I believe it was when he was written out to make room for Eric Delko to return. At first, I was incredulous of a show as old as this bringing in a new guy. But to my amazement, his character was good. Unlike the others who need Horatio to hold their hand, he doesn't; in the episode, Count me out, when he and Walter went into a meth lab which Horatio discovered was booby trapped but couldn't warn them cause they shut off their cellphones. But Jesse saw it and handled it on his own. I had hoped that the show would have an episode wherein Horatio was not available so Jesse was placed in charge. And I think he would have done well. As i said the only reason they let him go was because Adam Rodriguez who played Eric wanted to come back. Shows allowing former cast mates to return usually means the end of a show. Look at Judging Amy when former show regular Dan Futterman returned and his replacement, Kevin Rahm was written out, the show only lasted one season. How about Little House when Victor French who played Mr. Edwards when the show began came back. But to be fair, I'm sure the departure of Michael Landon may have been a factor too. And how about Bonanza when former cast member, David Canary returned? But to be fair again, I'm Dan Blockers' death was a major factor. -- Submitted By: (rony) on July 23, 2012, 12:15 pm

Trapper John, M.D. - TV Shows
It's obvious that Greg Harrison's departure left the show with a big hole to fill. They brought two characters to fill that hole. The first one didn't work out and the network cancelled the chow before the second one could catch on. -- Submitted By: (rony) on July 23, 2012, 11:50 am

Grateful Dead - Music Groups
The most annoying thing about The Grateful Dead is not the music, the drug use, the lineup changes, even the deaths. It's the deadheads! I went to one Grateful Dead concert ever, and probably would have enjoyed it a lot more if these idiot groupies that would probably follow this band into a prison camp, wouldn't feel the need to sing along with every tune en masse. Worse yet, I'm positive I witnessed a minor child, shy of ten years old, under the influence of psychedelics. I like the Dead's music. The mentality they breed is another story. Last time I saw Bob Weir I was frisked going in. So much for the hippie concepts of peace and freedom. They're too worried OBL is out to get them. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 11:50 am

Swelled head syndrome. They boned when Belinda Carlisle thought she was going to make it on her own and ditched the band. She had a few hits and then the novelty wore off.

Speed - Movie Series
To be honest the middle of the sequel was ok. Great action. But the premise that Sandra Bullock's character after getting involved with Keanu Reeves' from the first movie broke up with because she didn't like the way he always placed himself in danger. And then she another guy the one played by Jason Patric who unbeknownest to her is also a cop and a swat cop like Keanu's character. And why it would have been good for Keanu to have been there; was his character seeking help from Glenn Plummer's character. In the first one, he was the one whose car Keanu took to chase the bus and in the second one he would have taken his boat. To be frank, when Keanu didn't agree to do the movie, the producers should written off Glenn's character. His boat being taken would have been better is Keanu took it. -- Submitted By: (rony) on July 23, 2012, 11:41 am

Foreigner - Music Groups
They boned in the mid-1980s when they came out with "I Want To Know What Love Is" and "That Was Yesterday". The latter must be the answer to the question "when were you guys any good?" Anybody familiar with Foreigner's tunes from the 70s and early-80s (Urgent) knows their ballads were few and far between. They were mainly guitar-oriented hard rock. I guess "Waiting For a Girl Like You" started it, but by the time they did their mid-1980s crappola, there was no guitar track anywhere to be heard. So many cool bands did stuff in the 1980s with much anticipation preceeding it, only to bitterly disappoint their fans. Foreigner was one example with their follow up to "4". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 11:34 am

Without A Trace - TV Shows
For me things changed when the characters of Jack Malone and Sam Spade played by Anthony La Paglia and Poppy Montgomery hooked up. It was like an oxymoron for me sort of. A couple of seasons before, Jack was involved with Anne Cassidy played by Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and when she told him that she's pregnant he told her he didn't want to have another child. But now Jack wants to raise Sam's baby. He looks like a hypocrite to me. And I kinda prefer Sam when she was with Martin played by Eric Close. -- Submitted By: (rony) on July 23, 2012, 11:32 am

Fleetwood Mac - Music Groups
I don't know how "Tusk" was as an album. I do know that the title song, and "Sarah" are very good from it. By the time they did their next album, three years later, they had boned. Overplayed schlock like "Gypsy", "Hold Me" and "Love In Store" just didn't cut it. Stevie Nicks voice had lost all its sweetness and she sounded shrill and whiny. Lindsey Buckingham also sounded nothing like the guy who sang "Go Your Own Way" anymore. Instead, he sounded like he had literally "Gone Insane". The way I see it, they were great in the 70s, but became part of the "hit making machine" dilution of the 80s and it showed in the quality. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 11:28 am

Firm, The - Music Groups
Another example of 80s overkill and name recognition carrying a band and its songs. Their big hit was "Radioactive", which was catchy the first 5 or 6 times you heard it. By about the 100th play though I was ready to hurt people at the radio station. Wouldn't be caught dead listening to that dreck now. "Satisfaction Guaranteed" was a slight improvement if for no other reason that it wasn't played ad nauseum on rock stations, plus it was infinitely less annoying with dumb sound effects and phoned in playing like Radioactive had. If they did another album, it sank like a lead weight in quicksand as I sure don't remember thing 1 about it. Some supergroups should have never been formed. This one was worse than Asia, who at least have a few songs that are listenable even today. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 11:22 am

Welcome Back Kotter - TV Shows
It took some time for me to see the final season of the show. Before I did, I assumed that the show went down after John Travolta left the show to pursue a movie career. But when I did, I noticed that the show's star Gabe Kaplan didn't appear in all of the show's episodes during that final season. We can't be sure either way but I think both factors led to the show's demise. -- Submitted By: (rony) on July 23, 2012, 11:19 am

Eric Clapton - Music Groups
Am I the only one who finds releasing "Tears In Heaven" as a single to be monstrously inappropriate? Write a song to pay tribute to your fallen pre-school age son, sure, but the whole "hit single" thing just wreaks of trying to profit from it. I realize that's the record company's decision. I don't think I write them the song if they want to exploit my kid's death by making it "American Bandstand" material though. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 11:16 am

Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Music Groups
Boned when they did an album replacing Carl Palmer with Cozy Powell....as Emerson, Lake and Powell. As I recall they did a cheesy song called "Touch & Go" with corny, cliched lyrics, and where even Keith Emerson, who could always be counted on for a cool keyboard solo, seemed to be phoning it in. Eventually boned back when they reunited the original lineup. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 11:13 am

The hell I do it without complaining. I live in New York state. In fact, for what I pay in taxes, they shouldn't give a flip what I do behind my own closed door. They're getting their share. Of course, if some had their way, I'd be unemployable.

Duran Duran - Music Groups
After two albums of top notch material, Duran Duran started showing signs of boning on their 3rd album. It wasn't until the "Wild Boys" single from the otherwise live "Arena" LP that they truly told the world "we no longer give a shit", and that's exactly the kind of song it is. Ridiculously simplistic pop garbage that if it didn't have the Duran Duran label on it woudn't have sold two copies. John Taylor plays his two note bass line as if he'd rather be anyplace else, and Simon LeBon sounds like he could use a two year vacation from singing. Things only got worse from there. Two founding members leave the band. The side projects (Power Station; and that other forgettable one that did "Election Day"). "All She Wants Is". Man they tanked fast. I know they had some "boned back" moments later on, but any remaining goodwill from me had been largely spent by then. I'd outgrown them. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 23, 2012, 10:48 am

Definitely "Jazzin' for Blue Jean". Lame "feature video" for a lame song that ripped off the concept of "Michael Jackson's Thriller" video.

They're showing these shows in reruns on Antenna TV. I didn't like the show in the 80's and it wears even worse now. Ted Knight was unfortunately a one-note actor who really lucked out on Mary Tyler Moore. Jm. J. Bullock was a total buzzkill from the start.

Cat Stevens - Music Groups
"Finding religion" or becoming "born again" always seems to make people crazier than before. However, for some reason, it's not looked upon as a mental disorder because it's religion. I have beliefs, but I don't just blindly agree with all the rules my beliefs uphold and I do question a lot of the things my religion follows. However, converts and born agains don't seem to have this capability. Cat has mellowed out recently, but he still beliefs in a radical version of Islam and until he renounces it completely, I still think he has boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 22, 2012, 4:58 pm

Batman - Movie Series
It's hard to say what the future holds. The media was trying to tie this into Batman by reporting rumors that this guy dyed his hair and called himself The Joker, but law enforcement officials say that info was completely false. You're absolutely right that this sicko's actions shouldn't color people's perceptions on Batman, but unfortunately that seems to have happened. WB is pulling advertisement for TDKR for the time being and Nolan has released a statement. The word prior to the massacre was that WB was planning an immediate Batman reboot like Sony did with Spiderman, but I wonder if that's going to change now. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 21, 2012, 3:12 pm

Chicago - Music Groups
ParkerTillman, I know he was with the band from the beginning, I just mean when the songs were tailored more towards his soft rock ballad style instead of the jazz rock fusion of earlier albums. When Kath died, he kind of became the de facto leader, so in a way there was a Peter Cetera era from about 1977 to 1985 when he was the creative leader of the group. Kind of like how Phil Collins was with Genesis when Peter Gabriel was the leader and then he took a more creative control role after Gabriel left, which is why people call it the "Phil Collins" era even though he was a member of the band before Gabriel left. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 20, 2012, 6:46 pm

Clash, The - Music Groups
I was a huge Clash fanatic in the early 80s and got into them just around the time they boned, so let me refresh everyone's memory here. After "Combat Rock" was released, which was an improvement over the pretentious "Sandinista", drummer Topper Headon was dismissed from the band due to a heroin problem. That was the minor boning point. He was replaced with his predecessor Terry Chimes, who played on most songs from their eponymous first album, so there was some continuity. Then it happened. After their 1982-83 tour opening for The Who and their appearance at that year's "Us Festival", lead guitarist and sometime lead vocalist Mick Jones (Should I Stay or Should I Go; Train In Vain) was also dismissed from the band, leaving only Joe Strummer and Paul Simonon (Chimes had also quit again after the tour but before the Us Festival). They proceeded to replace these two founding members with three replacements and released a vapid album called "Cut The Crap" in 1985 with "The Clash" having become little more than a label. Then they called it quits. Never boned? Kicking out Mick Jones and doing an album without him were major league bones. They'll never reunite now as Joe Strummer died in 2002, but at least they made amends on a personal level. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 20, 2012, 5:06 pm

If Scientology is an automatic bone, converting to Islam has to be up there too.....and it's not so much that he did this but apparently it's also his excuse for turning into a major league dkhead for several decades, including the Salman Rushdie fatwa.

Billy Joel - Music Groups
I think the difference between "Nylon Curtain" and "Innocent Man" is quite noticeable. The biggest change was the fact that before "Nylon Curtain" Joel wasn't considered MTV friendly. He teamed up with famed music video director Russell Mulcahy to create videos from the album. Suddenly, what began as Joel's social commentary album transformed into the album that made him hip and cool. Joel, a few years after his divorce from his first wife, then met and dated Elle Macpherson and later Christie Brinkley shortly after the album released. He transformed from merely a musician to a superstar. His popularity was at a peak in the early-mid 80s. I think An Innocent Man was a light hearted album celebrating this achievement in life. He finally made it big, so he let his guard down and created an album that might not have been as inspired or as challenging. I still like and consider it his last truly great album, but he had some good songs scattered throughout his last three albums, just not consistent like the other albums. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 20, 2012, 11:10 am

Travoltron, I've got you beat. My mom deliberately kept TV out of the house until I was almost 9 because of fears it would rot my brain, and this was the late 70s/early 80s when all you had to worry about from TV was excessive cheesiness. Then when I finally got one we never had cable either. I did get DirecTV in '01 and I can't believe you're shocked at how much reality TV has taken over, it's not as if satellite and cable get different channels. TBS, TNT, Cartoon network, USA, etc. are the same no matter what kind of TV package you have.

Boston - Music Groups
Actually, they made two albums with the original lineup and both were quite good. Then after an 8 year "hiatus", they came out with "3rd Stage", with only Tom Sholz and Brad Delp remaining from the original lineup. Barry Goudreau, Sib Hashian and Fran Sheehan were toast by this time. The problem is the 3rd Stage album itself was pretty good, so even though you have the classic elements of a boning (60% of the original band not appearing), they didn't truly bone until their voice, Brad Delp, was cut loose. That was on the "Walk On" album. You can't make the excuse that Brad was dead. He wasn't then. His suicide was a more recent, and tragic, event. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 4:46 pm

Billy Joel - Music Groups
I almost voted for post 1983 until I realized even that was one album too late. I didn't care for "An Innocent Man" too much. To me that was when Billy stopped being Billy and started using worn out "gimmickry" (e.g. "yet another 50s revival - oh joy - we didn't get enough of this with Happy Days") to sell records. From then on, gone were the prominent piano parts that were staples of his songs on every album up to The Nylon Curtain, replaced with standard, basic, guitar-oriented pop-rock. An Innocent Man wasn't the worst of this, but it was the start of it. It had a few bright spots, but overall it didn't remind me of a Billy Joel's previous style. It sounded more like Billy singing someone else's songs, even though I'm sure he wrote most of them. "River of Dreams" was good as albums go, but I still hear few hints of "classic" Billy Joel in there. Could be a coincidence, but when I believe he boned seems to coincide with his first divorce / marriage to Christy Brinkley. Makes one wonder if his first wife wasn't the inspiration for his early albums. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 4:23 pm

Bee Gees - Music Groups
They boned when they went disco, because I hate disco. Maybe that's selfish, but that's why we vote. When I hear "I Started A Joke" or "New York Mining Disaster", it sounds like someone wrote a song he wanted to mean something. When I hear "Stayin' Alive" or "You Should Be Dancing", I'm reminded of that 1970s celebration of white Italian (I am one) trash called "Saturday Night Fever". There's a reason disco nostalgia came and went quickly in the 1990s. It has very little staying power. It's just not fun music to listen to. If you like dancing, it's passable, but what if you like MUSIC? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 4:13 pm

24 - TV Shows
I still love this show but it's obvious after reading this page that this show has jumped more times than can be counted. All of it though never really created a downfall, it was only momentary. The show lasted because it never really changed, it always felt like season 1 with a new wrapping - great for a long running show. -- Submitted By: (trigga415) on July 19, 2012, 4:11 pm

BEATLES, The - Music Groups
How can anyone say "Revolver" wasn't good after hearing "Tomorrow Never Knows"? That song was alternative rock before there was alternative rock. IMO though, Rubber Soul was their best album as it appealed to both original Beatle fans who preferred their backbeat roots, and their "hippie" fans as that was when their sound, not to mention their album art, began to evolve more in that direction. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 4:07 pm

Beat, The - Music Groups
I could never stand the lead singer's voice. It was like a cheap David Bowie impersonation, and General Public (this band's successor) was a complete atrocity. Hearing the ridiculously overplayed 1980s dreck "Tenderness" (did this song even CHART?) to this very day inspires great despair in me. Sappy garbage. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 3:59 pm

Bay City Rollers, The - Music Groups
Day 1. Their only "other" hit was a cover, which was later covered again (I Only Want To Be With You). Not even sure "Saturday Night", their only passable song (which was a lot less passable the last time I heard it) is original. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 3:49 pm

Asia - Music Groups
They were never all that, and their 2nd album was horrible, but the real boning moment came when Steve Howe left the group and they soldiered on without him. They were supposed to be a "supergroup", but without Howe they were a lot less super. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 3:46 pm

Amy Winehouse - Music Groups
Robert, I don't see why I should be forced by my government to do without enjoying a "J" once in a while just because people like Amy Winehouse are stupid. It's one reason I vote that she sucked from the start. If there's one thing I can't stand it's people who can't control themselves causing regulations to be imposed on those of us who survived because we can......and yeah, I can predict many will give me the "you say that now" speech. Whatever......30 years and counting. Let me know when it's gonna happen. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 3:40 pm

Aldo Nova - Music Groups
Is that why when "Fantasy" was "new" it sounded so familiar? I could have swore that song was already several years old when it "world premiered" on MTV. Now it makes sense. The only other song of his I remember is "Monkey On Your Back", which was lame, overdone, and quickly in and out of MTV's "power rotation". -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 3:33 pm

I can vouch for what kingbk says about Hollywood. If you are trying to break into showbiz and happen to be married (Hetero-marriage- that is) NOOOOOBODY wants to hang out with you, Seriously. It's only the couples who were already famous when they got married that everybody fawns over. If you're a married nobody trying to break in.

Sadly, she'll probably always be best known for her role as Flo in Alice. What people don't realize is that she has a VERY broad range as an actress. I've seen her in other roles, and she was so good, I didn't even once think "HEY! That's Flo!" I think she is generally very under-rated as an actress, but it's nice to see that she gets work. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 19, 2012, 3:04 pm

Wayne Brady - Celebrities
He boned when he hosted this lame race-baiter fest on TV Land called "That's What I'm Talking About". A typical episode included "panelists" such as Al Sharpton, Harry Belafonte and George Lopez being tossed softball questions with no follow up. One question Wayne posed that started out interesting was when he asked the panelists whether OJ was guilty, and the too lame liberals Sharpton and Belafonte answered that "a jury found him not guilty", but that wasn't what Wayne asked! We know what the jury said, he asked YOUR opinion. They copped out and Wayne failed to call them out for it. Show was a joke, and the start of TV Land itself boning the fish. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 2:06 pm

Terrell Owens - Celebrities
I wonder if I should have voted "Dancing / Not that there's anything wrong with it" but he boned long before that. His celebratory dances in the end zone were nauseating, and how did those not draw a flag? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 1:33 pm

Ted McGinley - Celebrities
He boned back, because before Married.....With Children, he was pretty much the kiss of death whenever he was cast on a show. I agree it wasn't his fault, but all those sorry coincidences can't be ignored. Truth is he took a lot of roles on shows that everyone knew were on the downward slide. Do I blame him? Hell no! Struggling actors have to eat, but I can't vote "never boned". If anything, the string ended when he was cast on "Married.....With Children". I don't think he was better than Steve, or worse. I think they were both funny, but in a different vein. Steve was funny because he always let himself get dragged down to Al's level. Jefferson was funny because he was already there, but was always having to hide that from Marcy. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 1:31 pm

I don't think he got Birk removed from the show. I think that was Katherine Heigl deciding she had the right to be more offended by what Isaiah Washington said than T. R. Knight was. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 19, 2012, 1:23 pm

Animal Planet - Random Topics
I was so looking forward to getting this channel (it used to be great). About 50% of the shows are now different reality shows about hillbillies "catchin' critters". The idiotic haunted house one is on all the time, too. Sometimes they have Animal Cops reruns. That seems to be the entirety of their programming. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 18, 2012, 10:07 pm

Cable TV - Random Topics
My dad was a cheapskate and would never get us cable TV. I always vowed that when I grew up I would get it. I'm finally in a financially secure situation and got cable at last as of a week ago. And guess what, it's crap. So many channels, but all those channels are full of reality shows. And I have to pay extra for HD, when it's free over the antenna. When the low promotional price expires in 6 months, I'm probably going to cancel unless the programming improves. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 18, 2012, 9:57 pm
