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.

Sorry, but HFCS isn't good. Those commercials where they say "sugar is sugar" is just corn farmers trying to spin it in a positive light. Sugar in general isn't good for you, but HFCS is digested in the human body differently than regular sugar. That's where the health issues lie. HFCS is much more fattening than regular sugar. The truth is there really is no nutritional value at all in soda. You drink it regularly, you will get fat, rot your teeth, and potentially get diabetes no matter if it's HFCS or sugar. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 19, 2013, 12:17 pm

Dennis the Menace (1959 sitcom) - TV Shows
I just read a portion of Jay North's account of his days as Dennis. This has also been confirmed by Jeannie Russell who played Margaret and remained close friends with Jay to the present day, just like Pelirojo said. His mother worked full time and could not supervise Jay on the set so she got her sister to go with him to the studio every day and look out for his interests. Apparently Jay's dad was out of the picture. His aunt was a monster who slapped and hit the boy when he flubbed a scene or was not giving his best performance. Of course this took place away from the director, cast and crew. According to Jay, she would hit him "where it didn't show," so no one on set would become alarmed. Jeannie Russell confirmed this went on for years and saw bruises and red marks on Jay's back. Remember she was a child herself at the time and was scared to speak up. Jay himself was terrified of the aunt who promised to severely hurt him if he told anyone. Of course this was well before the days when California had social workers on the set where children were working. It is truly amazing that Jay turned out to be a happry, well adjusted adult. He gave up acting in his teens and leads a quiet life with his family in Florida. I'll never be able to see a picture of jay during those years without my heart breaking for him. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 19, 2013, 9:31 am

That's good news, Randall's not a nerd for long. It's just, I don't buy that.

Pepsi - Random Topics
I heard that HFCS is not the demon they make it out to be, as sugar is sugar; they just get it from corn instead of sugarcane. Sort of like using honey instead of sugarcane when making tea or coffee. Ironically, the food police demanded HFCS be used because sugar was evil. Now they backpedal, saying HFCS is evil. Either way, too much sugar is bad for anyone. That said, I tried Throwback Pepsi as well. I like both versions: regular versions' syrupy texture, and Throwback's sugar and spicy flavor. Sometimes, I drink Mexican Pepsi (sugarcane instead of HFCS), which is delicious. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 18, 2013, 12:45 pm

They put Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, on their August 2013 cover.

Rhoda - TV Shows
This show was a bit before my time and I'm finally getting to see it on MeTV. It co-stars Marge Simpson and Garfield the Cat, so I had to check it out. What on odd history this show had. Initially it was a huge hit. The wedding episode broke all kinds of Nielsen records. Then the producers ran out of ideas and decided to have Rhoda get divorced in the 3rd season. I don't know why they thought viewers would want to see that. Ratings dropped like a stone overnight and it never recovered. Now the show is regarded as a flop due to the fallout, although it did last five seasons. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 17, 2013, 1:50 pm

I really hate that All Summer Long song, no relation to the Beachboys song of the same title. It is one of those songs you can only bear to hear once, like the typical novelty song(eg.

Dennis the Menace (1959 sitcom) - TV Shows
Good insights, jim. What's interesting is that contrary to their onscreen rivalry, the performers who played Dennis and Margaret were [and remain] good friends offscreen.

Even as a tween/teen watching the show when it originally aired, I thought it went downhill fast with the multi-episode story arc of Mork and Mindy's wedding and subsequent honeymoon on Ork. jmac9909's and elainewood's comments are right on -- viewing Mork & Mindy 30-odd years later is a perfect demonstration of how our concept of humor evolves (or SHOULD evolve) as we grow up. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on July 16, 2013, 7:53 am

Pauly Shore - Celebrities
Encino Man is quite watchable **in spite of** Pauly Shore. Brendan Fraser (in the title role) really carries the movie. Shore's character isn't all that likeable. Through the 2000s/2010s pop-culture lens, he comes off as a cross between an 80s valley-guy airhead and a modern-day metrosexual ... in other words, think of what the end result would be if Jeff Spicoli and Rajesh Koothrappali raised a child together. Anyway, Encino Man was the first thing I saw Pauly Shore in, and ever since then, I've never been much impressed with him. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on July 16, 2013, 7:39 am

Batman: The Brave and the Bold - TV Shows
You have to understand, this Batman show is not trying to be your typical "Dark Knight" show, but. A more upbeat one, akin to Adam West. Great team ups abound and fun stories eventually made me a fan. And i love how they portrayed Aquaman, "Outrageous!" Oh and Travoltron, they didn't shoehorn him in, this pays homage to the Brave and the Bold comic which pretty much always had Batman starring. -- Submitted By: (trigga415) on July 16, 2013, 3:02 am

Not a fan, never have been. Tries to be the jack-of-all-trades with his music, but instead falls flat in any of them. Comes off dirty, uneducated and red neckish with his faux rebel act. "All Summer Long" is one of the worst songs I've ever heard, and not just because it rhymes "things" with "things" or mashes together two classics in "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Werewolves of London" and desecrates them... wait, yes, that's exactly why I hate that song.

Father Knows Best - TV Shows
My gram remembers when this show was on TV and always said how good it was, so I watched a bunch of the episodes on Netflix. Yikes! First of all, the town (Springfield!) seemed to be 100 percent white and middle class. A typical plot involved Bud (the dim-witted teenage son) getting into hilarious shenanigans with his idiot friends. After getting "a stern talking to" (1950's code for getting his butt whipped) Bud will wipe his eyes and whimper something like "Holy Cow! None of the other guy's got into trouble!" To which his father replies, "That's because none of the other dads love their sons as much as I love mine!" Then sappy music swells up and the whole family agrees that "Father really does know best!" Do the same thing over and over and forever and that's pretty much the show! Except occasionally the teenage daughter Betty will do the shenanigans. This show literally had no minorities and it belittled women to the point where I was rooting for the mom to gut-stab the old man during dinner. One episode I saw had Betty demanding to go duck hunting with the boys since her brother got to go. Of course shenanigans ensued and Betty admitted that women should stay home and cook the ducks, not go shoot them. Of course here comes the sappy music and everyone agreeing, "Gee, Betty, maybe father really does know best!" Off set, the actor Billy Gray (Bud) was a pothead. He was busted shortly after the show ended for possession with intent and didn't work for several years as an actor. Another true fact is that Gray holds a U.S. patent for a type of "personal massager." I would have loved to have seen Bud try to explain those shenanigans to dear old dad!" -- Submitted By: () on July 15, 2013, 4:16 pm

Twilight Zone (1959-64) - TV Shows
Rod Serling was a brilliant writer, brilliant! I have always read (in academic books as well as the popular press) that CBS would not leave him alone and micro-managed the series to death. Many of his scripts were rejected for being "too intellectual" and the network forced him to include feel-good stories that had little to do with the original premise. Still, Serling managed to write and produce some of the best episodes ever shown on TV: "Time Enough at Last" with the awesome Burgess Meredith; "The Hitch-Hiker," with the equally brilliant Inger Stevens; and of course two William Shatner scenery-chewing delights, "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" and "Nick of Time." I still get a kick out of seeing Serling stepping out from behind the set in the original episodes, reeking of 1960 sophistication and cool. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 3:01 pm

Jeffersons, The - TV Shows
Funny show for a few seasons but it stayed on the air for, what, 11? I have made a point of watching some of the later season shows, currently in syndication. Not only has Lionel disappeared for the second time, or wait I guess for the third time, but Louise is acting like a rich b-word and George has lost touch with his roots. Jenny is still on the show but the character has become an air-head and the Willis's are painfully stupid and out of touch. What really did it for me was when Louise and George went to a charity costume ball and they dressed like famous white people! The old George and Weezy would never have done that and would have selected Dr. King and Rosa Parks or other famous, historically important African-Americans. Oh, Marla Gibbs remained funny as hell as Florence throughout the entire series. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 2:38 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
OMG I wish I could erase the final season from my brain. This was a very funny show for 8 seasons, which is something really hard to pull off. I just wish they had wrapped it up before the bizarre and obnoxious final season. Oh, and I would not mind at all if the Tom Arnold episodes were physically cut out of my brain as well. As others have noted, what gave this show its huge fan base was the fact that it was based in reality. The Connors had a crappy house but it was theirs and they fought to keep it. They had a totally dysfunctional family but they all loved each other and forgave each other's shortcomings. I grew up in house a lot like that, my brothers and I never knew we were poor and thought everyone had dry cereal and crackers for dinner every now and then. Season 9 arrives and the Connors are no longer poor, guess what? They were no longer funny either and not even remotely likeable. I always thought the series finale was Roseanne giving her fans a big fat finger. I still don't like here and will change the channel when she comes on. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:59 pm

Mork & Mindy - TV Shows
I loved this show when I was a kid and thought it was the very pinnacle of sophistication and wit. Boy, was I wrong! I saw an episode recently and was shocked at how stupid everyone was, especially Mork! I gave it another chance the next time I stumbled across an episode and it was even worse then the first one. Williams and Winters babbled, hooted, geeked out, made idiotic noises and gestures and the other characters thought they were cute. Man, Robin Williams is a fine actor and I love his dramatic roles but given a total blank check for his "comedy" he gets old really quickly! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:45 pm

Dead Like Me - TV Shows
I could never stand Mandy Patinkin until I started watching this show. I quickly came to love his Rube Sofer character and it absolutely made the show, he held together an amazing ensemble cast. The storylines were pretty unusual for what was basically a sitcom, even a weird sitcom. I loved how they showed the afterlife as being different for each person, with no stereotypical angels sitting around on clouds. Although it could be sad, particularly when dealing with the aftermath of George's death on her family, it could also be very, very funny! It was cancelled far too early and the movie they made to wrap up loose ends was awful! It will remain a classic forever. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:11 pm

Dennis the Menace (1959 sitcom) - TV Shows
Wow! Have times ever changed! I saw some of the episodes decades after they first aired and remembered thinking Mr. and Mrs. Wilson were in their 80's. My dad said they were supposed to be in their early 60's. Amazing, they got up each morning, got dressed up and sat around staring at each other, except when Mr. Wilson would have his daily apoplectic fit over the neighbor's 1st grader. My dad is now 70, still works full-time, has tons of activities and refuses to be baited by a five year old, LOL! It seemed like a cute show but I did wonder why Dennis' parents didn't lay down the law on his pranks. Maybe he actually did kill Mr. Wilson? The guy was always on the verge of a stroke anyway. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 1:02 pm

Outer Limits, The (1963-1965) - TV Shows
I agree, best intro and outro music, ever! For Christmas a few years ago I got the entire original series boxed set on DVD and watched every single episode. The writing was phenomenal and never insulted serious science fiction fans. Alternate dimensions, alien civilizations, time warps, wormholes, all were featured on various episodes and had cutting edge theories in physics. This was NOT a dumbed down show that had an obligatory monster-of-the-week. The actors were some of the best in Hollywood at the time and I imagine it became a cool show to work. Martin Landau, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Culp, Robert Duvall, Sally Kellerman, Geraldine Brooks, Dabney Coleman and many more made this a first class production. Unlike The Twilight Zone, which had its share of bad episodes, schlock and camp, The Outer Limits stuck to its principles. They never produced a cute or funny episode, just excellent TV and story telling! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 12:50 pm

Parker Lewis Can't Lose - TV Shows
Good show with a good cast and crew, including one of the best TV directors of the period, Rob Bowman, who went on to direct some of the best episodes of the X-Files. I recently saw some PLCL episodes and they were pretty funny but very weird. I thought Parker and Mikey had a full on bro-mance. They were just too stupid (Mikey) or scared (Parker) to act on it. Funny how they were always talking about girls but when they had the chance to actually get into serious relationships, they always chickened out. In one episode they both had "hot dates" but found the girls boring and ditched them and met up with each other. Parker, Mikey and Kubiak rocked but I didn't like The Jerry character and found him to be an offensively stereotypical Jewish kid. Some belly laughs but mostly just pleasant stories about good kids. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 15, 2013, 12:29 pm

Tim Allen is a notorious control freak. It is well known that he got into a feud with JTT (Randy) and essentially fired him. How's that for maturity, a middle aged 'professional' getting into a fight with a teenager? Allen disliked the young actor because he thought he was too effeminate to be his son. When he was younger, the two interacted well but when the kid hit 16 or so, Allen badgered him relentlessly and tried to butch him up. The show itself was ok for the first few seasons but became very stale with the same jokes repeated ad nauseum. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 11, 2013, 3:24 pm

Big Bang Theory - TV Shows
Awesome show! At first I didn't like the addition of the new girls, Amy and Benadette, but now love them and think they add an incredible dimension to the main characters. I loath Lucy and for Raj's sake, I hope she is gone for good. The boys still remain boys, although they must all be around 40, and will apparently never grow up, good for them. This show is remarkable for a few things, reviving the career of the very funny Johnny Galecki, launching Kaley Cuoco into the stratosphere, and the discovery of one of the most talented comedic actors of our time, Jim Parsons. Will Wheaton as the recurring nemesis to Sheldon is hilarious and proves Will is not above poking fun at himself AND Wesley Crusher. BTW, to the person who hates the laugh track, the show does not use one! It is filmed before a live audience and the laughs you hear are genuine. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 11, 2013, 10:14 am

Still Standing - TV Shows
I loved this show, Mark Addy and Jami Gertz were perfect as aging pot head party animals stuck in the 80's. The kids were good too, especially Taylor Ball as Brian (the adorable Bri-Bri). He was great as the quirky teen that everyone knew was gay except him. The show did have a couple of flaws: Mark Addy's midwestern American accent was uneven and you could hear the Brit slip through quite often; and their very large, very nice and very expensive house! Good Lord, the man was a toilet salesmen and the wife was a part time dental hygenist. Yet they had this really nice house. One episode even involved a multi-millionaire brewery heir moviing in next door. Exactly how much money do people pay for toilets in Chicago? -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 11, 2013, 10:00 am

Terra Nova - TV Shows
This show did what a lot of sci-fi shows, books, and movies do: insult their audience! The producers seem to think sci-fi means incredible CGI and action extravaganza, devoid of any meangingful plot, science, or humanity. My main obejctions: Stupid Premise: What is the physics behind this, exactly? Stereotyped Characters: Strong man, devious woman, strong woman, devious man, and cute children. Awful Writing: May as well not had any dialogue at all. This is an actual quote, I wrote it down. Commander Taylor: "Hmm. Hmmm. I don't know. Hmmmm. Maybe." Just because Spielberg was greedy enough to put his name on this thing does not make it great entertainment. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 11, 2013, 9:44 am

Brillliant show! And that comes from someone who generally does not like Rowan Atkinson (I hate Mr. Bean). In these shows he was very funny and lead a spectacular cast of awesome British actors: Brian Blessed, Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, Tim McInnery, Miranda Richardson, and the incredible Tony Robinson as Baldric! My favorite series was Blackadder the Third which featured Hugh Laurie as the insanely funny, simpering dandy Prince Regent. Who knew Dr. House could be so funny? For me, Blackadder Goes Forth was pretty bad, I don't know if it was the fact it was a comedy set in the middle of the bloodiest war ever fought on this planet (bad taste, guys!) or just that the whole concept was getting old. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 11, 2013, 9:27 am

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! - TV Shows
First of all, I love Penn and Teller, as magicians, not as social commentators. Two things really killed this show for me. 1: Showtime's insane scheduling so you never knew when it was on, and 2: Penn Gillete's increasingly unfunny and untrue right-wing political attacks. The earlier shows were good, funny and they did debunk some things that needed debunking. The later shows (when you could actually find them) were full of Penn's personal bias and Republican BS. When he started saying climate change was a hoax and NASA didn't do half of what they claim (he didn't come right out and say the lunar landings were hoaxes but he implied it) I quit watching. If they go back to doing their great, funny, and weird magic specials I will definiteky watch. In the meantime, Bullshit! is Bullshit! -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on July 11, 2013, 9:12 am

Two and a Half Men - TV Shows
OMG how long are they going to keep this dead horse on the air? I just read that Angus T. Jones is NOT a regular for next season despite reports to the contrary. So of the original characters they have exactly two left: Alan and Berta. Gone already or not coming back: Charlie, Evelyn, Jake, Judith, Herb, Rose, Gordon, and Dr. Freeman (Jane Lynch). The show was funny when Jake was small but started smelling when he reached his teens. I say about 5 seasons would have been a perfect run for this show, which would have delighted most producers but not Chuckles Lorre! He will milk a show until it has exactly zero appeal and more people hate it than like it, which seems to be the case here. I tried to watch a few of the Ashton Kutcher episodes but when they started doing song and dance numbers I swore off this show forever!

Fun fact: When this show was still airing, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie refused to give the show's executives and producers any tax breaks (source: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/27/nyregion/christie-blocks-tax-credit-for-jersey-shore.html?_r=0).

I'm sure there are plenty of good rock bands out there still. It's just a matter of finding them.

There were good and bad experiences that came with it but ultimately you found the bands/groups you were looking for. Same can be said today.

Rock isn't dead, not even close. If you base your music knowledge off of mainstream radio, then yes, you might think that it has died. How could you not when it's Justin Bieber, Robin Thicke, Bruno Mars, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, hip-hop artist, electronic dance music, etc. over and over? There are still lots of bands and artists coming out with solid rock. You can find them on YouTube, iTunes, Spotify, satellite radio, college/local radio stations, concerts, just to name a few places to discover new music. Some of my favorite "new" rock bands include Vampire Weekend, Muse, Imagine Dragons, Spoon, Queens of the Stone Age, just to name a couple off the top of my head... -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on July 8, 2013, 6:24 pm

In Supersize Me, the guy also iirc, spent those days inactive. So, not only was he eating Mickey Dees three times a day, he was sitting around all day. His experiment is an extreme example of what happens when you eat fast food and are inactive.

McDonalds - Random Topics
Two things first. First: Food Inc. is inaccurate, as many farms don't raise animals or grow food in such conditions. Those that do need to shape up or ship out. Second: Super Size Me is also inaccurate. It's just anti-McDonald's propaganda. The thing is, people don't eat McD's all day thrice a day, so Spurlock's experiment was fallacious from the get-go. He was already predisposed against McD's, so of course he's going to say "I feel sick" instead of "Mmm, this is great". It would be like me drinking nothing but bottled water for a month to show people how unhealthy water is. I'd be saying "Ew, this water is nasty" instead of "Ahh, how crisp and refreshing". That said, the quality of McDonald's food took a nosedive when they were forced to make it "healthier". I know someone who ate there in its early years, and the food was great then. When they got rid of the dark meat in chicken nuggets, they became drier and less flavorful. Thanks, food police. As for mom-and-pop diners, I make it a point to visit them. Their food is sometimes better than that of fast food chains. -- Submitted By: () on July 6, 2013, 3:58 pm

History (History Channel) - Random Topics
What a depressing travesty this network has become. Yes, "Hysteria Channel", "Conspiracy Channel" and "Pseudo-History Channel" are fitting titles now. Another station gobbled up by the reality show fixation, same thing that happened to TLC and MTV. This channel during it's prime was literally a visual history, civics and government book in the TV. Napoleon, Sitting Bull, Confucius, Genghis Khan, George Washington, Henry the VII, Vlad the Impaler, Sojourner Truth, The War of 1812, The Bubonic Plague, the Inca Empire. They did it all. I had a hearty laugh over the past 3-4 years of them doing all this 2012, apocalypse and alien $h!+. 2012 was a fear tactic for ratings. H.C. never did anything like that when Y2K was going on. ... "Oh, yes. Our ancient ancestors were all stupid, despite the fact they had several hundred years to perfect math, science and astronomy all on their own! ALIENS helped them build our civilization!" "I guess Da Vinci, Galileo, Socrates, Noah, and the guy who discovered fire were all lizard lipped alien mutants in human costumes that beamed down?" "Oh! Maybe we scared them off so they sunk Atlantis and took off forever into the universe???" (LOL) Even worse with Swamp People, Ice Road Truckers, Pawn Stars, UFO Hunters, Life After People... Can we at least put these shows on a more appropriate network? SOME of those "shows" weren't bad, they just ain't HISTORY! Discovery, Travel, SOMETHING? At least some are trying...

Pokemon - TV Shows
I stopped watching this show during the Johto episodes, when I think it got officially bad. I've only seen a peek of the Hoenn episodes and that's it. I have not seen the Diamond/Pearl series nor the Black/White, but here's my two cents.... It's sorta clear they ran out of ideas for this show early on, they perhaps should have had a bit more structure than Ash, his Pokemon and cohorts of the week defeating the bad guys, dealing with random Pokemon and winning badges///. Maybe that was too hard? Don't know. The first couple episodes of this show were good, for instance, there was Ash's struggles in becoming a Pokemon trainer. There were adventures in obtaining each badge. (Though he never "earned" a couple of them in a legal match) He had to earn a couple of his Pokemon's trust and obedience, like Pikachu and Charizard. Later, he just started catching Pokemon that instantly trusted him further down the line. About halfway through the first season of this show, they made Ash needlessly dumb. He started releasing all his good Pokes' left and right. Haunter, Primeape, Pidgeotto, Butterfree... And the "Ned Flanderization" of not only Ash, but everyone else hurt. Ash went from a slightly cocky headstrong character who was slightly ditzy to just becoming a generic, "plain ol' nice guy Gary Stu" character. Brock's serious, wise, stoic, strategist persona was thrown out and his skirt-chasing tendencies became dominant. Misty went from being a hot head who had hidden feelings for Ash to the "generic girl" character. (I think that was when she captured Togapi). Team Rocket were comedic, but were able to be taken seriously (the flashback episodes about their histories). Later, they just became a duo of bumbling clowns who couldn't catch a cold, with an annoying talking Neko cat (forgot that Pokemon's name. It's been a few years since I've played Pokemon, and eons since I've watched the "anime") in tow. The "cool" characters (Gary (Yes, he was an a-hole, but he had a convertible limo, CHEERLEADERS, and IIRC some serious hardcore Pokemon Ash could never catch, if he did, he'd probably just release them foolishly. I actually thought Gary was cooler that Ash), Giovanni, etc.) were forgotten about or written out of the show. The Orange episodes weren't that memorable. I remember Brock left and they put in some artsy dude or a photographer or something... I dunno... These episodes basically just felt like "Kanto at Sea" to me. They started relying on the same old plot formula and devices for these episodes, which only got worse in Johto. (Ash and Co. find trainer/Pokemon with issue, they resolve it, Team Rocket is thwarted, Ash looses at the Pokemon League. The End). The last episode I watched was about Ash going to the Hoenn region and meeting the default girl character from R/S/E and her nerdy brother. Brock and Misty were both gone, but I didn't MISS them. But it was the same old plot formula from Orange Isles and Johto even then. The interesting new Team Aqua and Magma had to take a backseat crap for the ever obnoxious Rockets. (Why didn't Ash just buy a gun, lure Team Rocket into the middle of the woods miles from anything and.... well, you get the idea...) Ash and Pikachu had no chemistry anymore. Pika only existed to defeat TR in EVERY episode and win a couple fights for Ash. Ash released his Charizard that he'd finally trained after months or years(?)of busting his ass and a Larvitar (WTF!?!? He could've had a Tyranitar at some point!) at this point, and boxed all of "the Pokemon he only uses for the league and that's it (Muck, Taurus... Other Pokemon they couldn't sell to little children I guess?)"... This show was dead by then and I gave up. Or has it gotten better since then? The Pokemon games and cards ever since Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver and Crystal were always classics. Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald did NOT ruin Pokemon as so many people think. It was actually quite good. All those games still hold up to this day. And from the kids I talk to, the "newer" Pokemon games are getting even better, more complex and detailed with Black, White and those new ones that are coming out later this year. Pokemon ABC or XYZ or something...? -- Submitted By: () on July 5, 2013, 11:49 pm

Boy Meets World - TV Shows
I've watched a lot of sitcoms from beginning to end, and they all have minor continuity errors. Though, the goods ones' errors are minor enough to be forgettable... To say this show has continuity errors is to start from the faulty premise that it has a continuity to begin with. Every episode retconned the characters' past into what was convenient in the moment. The only difference between the continuity of this show and shows like SNL and Drawn Together is that the others didn't pretend to have a continuity. This one does. And that is where it fails. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on July 5, 2013, 1:33 pm

I had forgotten about Jamie dying; but it doesn't surprise me. After all; any gal romantically associated with a Barkley or Cartwright would be dead at the end of that episode.

She is wearing bleach white slacks; falls into quick sand; is rescued by Steve and in the next shot her slacks are back to bleach white. All ends happily as Steve states that he has a "vision" of her going out with him that night. My vote for Boning is the Big Foot episodes.

I think there is a point where he did bone, but he recovered around the mid 90's in his alternative phase. The success of Let's Dance led to some half-baked "commercial" records which were tolerable at best - even today David Bowie himself regrets sticking to that sort of sound for so long. However, I really liked his alternative 90's phase with Outside and Earthling, and all albums after were actually really good (jury's still out on The Next Day, however). There's definitely a point where he just burnt out completely, but there's no doubt that he recovered along the line. -- Submitted By: (MrMallard) on July 3, 2013, 3:59 am

Ren and Stimpy - TV Shows
God, this show was nasty and gave me serious nightmares when I snuck it during the tail-end of the series' original run back in the late 90's on Nickelodeon... After re-watching it some years later, it held up... They pulled it off, somehow, despite all the nastiness. Maybe it was the seriously dark humor and adult jokes they snuck in at times? Like the episodes where Stimpy clones Ren and Ren's "evil" clone tries to take over the world after ruining everyone's lives? "Hermit Ren"? Or that one where Stimpy meets Ren's cousin from Sweden and they destroy Ren's home, the latter literally threatening to kill them afterwards? Maybe it was because it proved Ren and Stimpy proved it could have emotional, serious episodes? Like the episode with Stimpy's "Son", his own fart, or the episode where Stimpy become addicted to TV and has real-life withdrawal symptoms when Ren takes it away? And the one were Stimpy questions his morality being on his final life out of 9. The later episodes made by Nickelodeon after John K. departed did not have the same magic that the originals had, but there were a couple good episodes, I just mentioned a few in that bundle of examples above along with some Spumco gems. I don't know. This obviously wasn't meant to be a kids' show, though. John K. should have waited a few years and pitched it to Comedy Central or Adult Swim on Cartoon Network or something. Then again, those "Adult Party Cartoon" episodes he made in the 00's were WAY too nasty for my taste, had no plot, and lacked that mysterious "cleverness" I can't put my finger on the original episodes had. They was just toilet humor... And that was it. I mean, for example, South Park is obnoxious, but it makes up for it by making fun of many aspects of society oh-so-gloriously and cleverly. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 2:50 am

Teletubbies - TV Shows
This show never taught me anything, in fact when I was 5 in 1998, I found it quite boring watching these headache-inducing monsters roll around aimlessly in the countryside jingling their rear ends, giggling, touting jibberish, and then forcing me to watch the same video two times in a row...Did they think little children were all stupid or something? ... *Sigh* ... When I didn't change the station or found something else to due that watch the tube, I eagerly awaited watching Fred Rogers, Shari Lewis, Levar Burton, Big Bird, Grover, Oscar, Cookie Monster and Chris and Martin Kratt after this swill. They would be my great, thought and curiosity provoking, educational reward for enduring the boring, mind-numbing wreck that was the Teletubbies. I sometimes even awaited Barney the Dinosaur coming on! Honestly, who even cares if the purple 'Tubby was gay? No life lessons, no basic math skills or English/foreign language skills, no cultural or basic science stuff, no socializing skills... Just bright, flashy colors, nonsense, jibberish, over surrealism and a non-existent plot. Today I can't tell if this was a show intended for toddlers or one cleverly passed off as a kid's show that was actually a program for stoners. Well, at least they were cute, right? Boned day one, definitely. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 2:31 am

Rap (music) - Random Topics
Yes, at some point in the 90's artists stopped singing about the hardships of life in the ghetto. The older rap music was about difficult times, resulting to artist singing about rebellion in this harsh environment, rebellion against "the man", having to survive the violence in the hood, eventually ending up in the wrong crowd and paying the price, etc. (This is why I always have and still enjoy most Metal, Alternative, etc. It's usually about the struggle of life in hard times) Instead this "new", "gangsta" version of rap music today focuses on being flashy, needlessly showing off in a "pimp mobile", etc., being lewd with women and doing drugs just because you can. The more the better, it's seems like it's just people trying to show off. No drama, nothing to relate to, no structure, no political statements, no self-control or restraint. Just stick with hip-hop from the 70's, 80's and early-to-mid 90's... Otherwise, go underground. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 2:06 am

Ed, Edd N Eddy - TV Shows
I was torn between Ed, Edd and Eddy. The animation was poor, but somewhat forgivable, the voice acting wasn't much better, and I found a lot of the characters in this series to have annoying personalities, such as Kevin, Eddy, Sarah and Jimmy. But it had it's moments, such as the extreme use of exaggerated cartoon physics for humorous effect and there were some clever one liners and some hidden adult jokes (The Kanker Sisters seemed to be one living risque jest, strictly for the teen and adult viewers). I found Edd (Double Dee) to actually be quite an enjoyable, relatable character, save for despite him being so smart he always went along with Eddy's schemes. Rolf and Ed were the most comedic. Normally I don't care for dumb characters like Ed, but he and Rolf's "interesting" and "random" dialogue seemed to be hilarious for some reason, along with Rolf's mysterious customs from his culture that we never see. And again, I liked seeing Ed break the laws of physics regularly. Also, the movie finale was surprising serious for this show and I actually liked it. Not the best show, but it had a good handful of memorable moments. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 1:47 am

King of the Hill - TV Shows
King of the Hill was an interesting series. It was an animated show that eventually juggled humor, drama and suspense quite well, dare I say even better than The Simpsons, Futurama, and certainly better the Seth Macfarlene series'. Yes, Hank is awkward, Bobby is even more awkward, Peggy is rude and an egomaniac, Luanne is a ditz, Khan is rude, Cotton is a bully and a total a-hole, Dale is mentally unstable/insane, Bill is depressive, and Boomhauer is the ladies man who despite that, it seems he can never get the girl in the end, despite being laid back and passionate. (Though I think there was a episode explaining he never takes his relationships seriously, or he just can't find the right gal, wasn't there?) But I found all these characters funny to some extent despite their faults, most of which are easy to relate to and makes them human. I thought Peggy having her over-inflated ego popped every once in a while was funny, Hank's intolerance of Bobby's beliefs and teenage "experimenting" with fads, music, and so on, and Dale being so paranoid that he barely opens the door to the pizza man, however he's surprisingly ignorant to the fact his wife has been cheating on him for years with John Redcorn and conceived a illegitimate son, Joseph, whom Dale swears shares his blood and spoils him rotten just to name a few. There were some odd episodes I hated. For example, there was that several part story arc with Peggy's skydiving accident. Despite the character development she and Cotton got, it was unbelievable. I think this show started to slip when Luanne married Lucky. I didn't hate his character, but he was somewhat annoying at times. He just seemed like some bum who screwed the system to get every penny he owned. Lucky was wise at times, he also seemed to be a loving husband do Luanne, but it wasn't enough to save him. When Cotton passed it only sunk deeper (I hated his character, but he did give some pretty good comic relief), but continued to be a decent quality show. -- Submitted By: () on July 3, 2013, 1:27 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
The first couple episodes of this show weren't bad, but once the show was revived, this show took a turn for the worst. They still do have some clever jokes, but Family Guy has dropped in quality. Peter was made mentally retarded (IIRC they even did an episode about it), so they have of course used this to make him the typical nuisance/danger to everyone around him, including himself. Stewie was changed from a genius to some kind of homosexual stereotype or something (I can't tell). Brian is now just there for the political humor. Meg only exists to be the butt of jokes and to be bullied which isn't funny. Characters like Cleveland were written out, which sucks. And some of the jokes and pacing of this show are terribly boring. Some jokes are recycled, while some cutaway/flashback jokes seem to drag on forever. The potty humor does not save this show, either.... Another show that was resurrected from cancellation and became a shell of it's former self. Beavis and Butthead and Futurama pulled off their revival series successfully and I don't know how. But as for Family Guy, remote, please. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 1:01 am

I only eat at this place every 1 1/2 to 2 or more months tops. The meat, fish and veggies are all raised in very poor conditions. The farms and factories in which McDonald's orders their food from and has it processed are some of the most depressing, gross places to exist. The unhealthy, and sometimes unsanitary preparation of this food is not that great, either. (Kudos to Mickey D's who do at least are up to health code and have a friendly staff, I know you do exist out there.) Watch the movies "Super Size Me" and/or "Food Inc." if you don't believe me. Dunno about anyone else, but I can't eat this stuff without getting physically sick 2-3 hours later; sure it tastes good, but it is crappy food. I know it is cheap junk food, but still.

SpongeBob SquarePants - TV Shows
Yes, this was once quite a clever show. Before the movie, SpongeBob was a nice, well meaning guy stuck kind of in a "man-child" bubble, who was just misunderstood by his fellow sea people in the earlier episodes. Sure he screwed up every once in a while, but you could relate. Patrick was sorta dumb, but he wasn't obnoxious and pulled off the comic-relief quite well. Sandy was a kickass Texan squirrel whom I could never figure out if she moved to Bikini Bottom for kicks, adventure or study. Squidward was the constantly crotchety, jerk next door neighbor who really just needed some company who could sit through his *ahem* "art" and "music". Krabs was like a (grand)father figure to SpongeBob I always felt; when he wasn't trying to rob him blind of his paycheck, though you could tell he wasn't cruel, he just had a money fetish. Plankton was just there for ironic humor. I remember the elderly "Aquaman + Lad" knock off characters, Mrs. Puff, Krabs' daughter (Why is she a whale?), etc. but they are minor characters' so I'm leaving them out this time around. At the end of the 3rd season this show went to crap. I think it went downhill when they made a "special" about SpongeBob, Patrick and Squidward as cavemen (Didn't they already do that in the first season anyway with Squidward's time machine?). The movie (Which I remember not even being that great) was the final nail in the coffin. The 4th season is where this show died. The animation during the 4th season got pretty flat and just looked poor in contrast to the previous episodes. They recycle plots and have run out of ideas, but the worst offender of all IMO: The characters became caricatures of their former selves, like they did to Flanders' on The Simpsons. SpongeBob and Patrick become complete idiotic morons to the point of it not even being funny anymore. Basically becoming a danger to themselves and everyone around them, just by "attempting" normal tasks. Squidward became the shows' victim character. Again, before he was the jerk next door, now he's living in utter hell every day of his life. I actually feel bad for the guy now!!! Why hasn't he gone on a serial killing spree on the now ever annoying SpongeBob, Patrick and Krabs yet? Krabs is a villain now it seems, only caring about money, and not Sponge or Squid's well beings' on the job. He's not even a mentor to Sponge anymore. Everyone else seems to have not changed that much, but these changes killed the show. I think this is a show that intended to wrap up with the film, but the network exec's, whom make Mr. Krabs look like a reformed Ebenezer Scrooge it seems, said NO to rake in more dough, so new writers, new artists, the show looses it's charm as the old staff have moved on or quit. RIP SpongeBob... They need to quit milking this sea cow dry! Then again, it is just a cartoon.

Sha Na Na - TV Shows
Now come on! Some of you MUST have heard of Sha Na Na! I saw some comments about the Flip Wilson Show & Sha Na Na somewhat got their show started on Flip's show . When the show started in 1976 ,they had Avery Schreiber as Herbie the cab driver bringing such guests as Ethel Merman , Chubby Checker and others.In the later seasons they had to resort to tricks like fake telethons Plus the guys (there were 10 of them ) would sing songs from the 50s & 60s. Each of the 10 greasers (as they were known) had a trait of their own . There was Bowzer (tall dressed all in black with a deep voice) Johnny ( the heart throb of the group ) Santini (always winking at girls ) Lennie (the teddy bear looking sax player) and others. Hopefully soon Sha Na Na will be out on DVD soon! (Ob a personal note I met Bowzer & he's a VERY sweet man! DON'T EVER let the tough guy attitude fool you! -- Submitted By: (Katzi428) on July 2, 2013, 10:46 pm

Wizard of Oz, The - Movie Series
So, I finally got around to watching Oz: The Great and Powerful. It had none of the charm wizard of oz had. Mila Kunis did her best but other than her it was pretty boring, obviously predictable, and definitely alot of continuity errors based from the 1939 movie. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 2, 2013, 8:36 pm

Kung Fu Panda - Movie Series
The first Kung Fu Panda was funny. It really was. The second had more of a dark undertone. For this reason, I didn't enjoy it as much. Plus, it suffered from sequel syndrome. Just not as good as the first. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 2, 2013, 8:27 pm

Jaleel White - Celebrities
Perhaps, if he would have quit playing Urkel at an earlier age, he would have had more success. When the series ended, he seemed too old to still be playing that character. Thus, cementing him as Urkel for life. imo. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 2, 2013, 8:16 pm

Josie and the Pussycats - TV Shows
Boned big-time when they went to outer space. It was Alexandra's fault they went to outer space in the first place (she shoved her way in front of the band posing for publicity photos, they all fall inside the ship (no thanks to her), she "accidentally" activates the ship and off they go). And anytime Josie and the others helped out some alien race with their problems and they were headed back to Earth as a reward, it was usually Alexandra who pulled a Gilligan and knocked the ship off-course. Why they tolerated that two-faced bitch, I'll never know. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on July 2, 2013, 7:46 am

Josie and the Pussycats - TV Shows
Archies knock-off and Day 1 BTF. Also, in retrospect, you gotta wonder about those outfits ... was there some fetishism amongst the show's creators? If someone floats idea of women prancing around a stage wearing cat costumes, Saturday morning cartoons is NOT the venue that comes to mind! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 29, 2013, 9:39 am

Brady Kids - TV Shows
For me, this show was an obvious Day 1 BTF, because 1) the BTF point for the original live-action show was when the kids started their singing group and 2) in the cartoon, the kids sang ALL the time. I think each episode ended with one of their songs, and their might have been one or two in the course of the episode. I didn't see that much of the show as a kid, but I distinctly remember some of those songs severely getting on my nerves. In retrospect, it's clear that this show was a cheap Archies knock-off and a hook-line-and-sinker buy-in to the 1970s paradigm that every cartoon teenager (or almost-teenager) who was a lead character had to be in a rock band. Similar to Las Vegas, what happens in the 70s, by and large needs to stay in the 70s. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 29, 2013, 9:33 am
