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.

Monkees, The - TV Shows
Very few shows, in my opinion, have never boned...Emergency, Monty Python's Flying Circus and The Monkees. Micky, Mike, Peter and Davy were not only cute but also funny and musically talented. Maybe those who say it did blames it on the music, that was arranged heavily at one time by Don Kirschner, when Don got fired and the Monkees took over. Maybe to them but for me it didn't because a song was featured in the episodes regardless if it was a huge hit or not and it was generally portrayed by the boys as mostly out of work musicians who weren't famous. -- Submitted By: (gagedesoto) on September 28, 2012, 2:45 pm

Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
Many would say that season 4 boned because John Cleese wasn't there but for me, it never did. Sure, the skits clearly reflected the visual writings of Terry Jones/Michael Palin but they were just as funy in their own right. Yes, it wasn't the same without John but it held up just fine for me despite that. :) -- Submitted By: (gagedesoto) on September 28, 2012, 2:32 pm

Psych - TV Shows
To me, the show boned it when Shawn and Juliet hooked up together. Not only does Shawn put down Lassie even worse with the insults, Juliet even thinks he's too much of a buffoon that she agrees with Shawn and sometimes even goes behind his back to help Shawn which aggravates me because she's supposed to be his partner. Worse, Carlton is looking more like an incompetent idiot than a Head Detective of the SBPD. I think one of the choices should be "When Shawn and Juliet Became Lovers" because that seemed to change the dynamics of the show. I still watch it though. -- Submitted By: (gagedesoto) on September 28, 2012, 2:07 pm

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! - TV Shows
I tried watching a couple of these on Youtube. They were even topics I WANTED to see get debunked-- PeTA, for their killing of animals and Martial Arts, for all the fraudulent instructors out there. These things were only briefly mentioned, if at all. Instead, I was treated to something more akin to a Michael Moore documentary; a smug fat guy that thinks he's funny (but isn't) interviewing only the lunatic fringe of the side he's against, and then editing the footage out of context to make the people look even dumber and himself smarter. And to that a dash of pointless cursing (because it's cable and he can) and even more pointless topless women at the end. Very disappointed. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 26, 2012, 12:08 pm

Homefront - TV Shows
THANK YOU, Parker Tillman! I tried to say the very same thing on the site that no longer exists but got shot down by folks saying that her doing all that made the show 'realistic'! The weird thing is that after this Joan of Arc Wannabee proverbially got caught with her knickers down was that she STILL droned these dogmas to her kids and yet not only did they not only not call her on her hypocrisy [as young people have been doing re hypocritical parents for ages ] but also her friends, neighbors,etc. treated her getting pregnant out of wedlock as a perfectly conventional thing. Yes, I know there have been nonmarital births from Day One but it was NOT considered the least bit conventional back in the late 1940's. This was but one of many instances in which they tried to inject 1990's POVs into a 1940's setting which all the costumes and hairstyles couldn't make legit. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 25, 2012, 9:27 am

Homefront - TV Shows
In case you didn't catch it up top: I thought this was a crummy show with a hypocrite for a main character / matriarch....an uber-Catholic widow who gets pregnant from an affair with a Jewish atheist in the 1940s. Say WHAT? How did this nonsense ever last two full seasons? Making matters worse, she's constantly moralizing (straight out of Catholic dogma no less) on her "near adult" offspring, even as her out of wedlock baby bump gets bigger by the week. Then she refused to marry the father (more uber-Catholic hypocrisy) because he's an atheist. Maybe before she slept with the guy without using protection (in the 1940s that's what I'm inclined to believe regardless of whatever else the writers of this tripe may try to put across) she should have checked for such deal breakers? I'm sorry, but I have a very low tolerance for "stupid", even when it's on the so called "idiot box". This show is insulting to Catholics, but the biggest insult is to people's intelligence. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 24, 2012, 11:23 am

Yeah, the post-James / Janet Jackson episodes were awful cheesy. Just about every character had to have a "redeeming moment" from Alderman Fred Davis right on down to Mr. Bookman. Then you have Florida's "re-marriage, but maybe not". I guess Carl Dickson can go down in history as the first African-American sitcom character to be "Chuck Cunninghammed", or since he joined before disappearing, maybe he got "Poochied"? He must be honored! There's also "Singing" (Michael & Penny break into "I Got You Babe" - BARF the fish!). The "CB Radio" episode (Um...don't you need an antenna with that?). Thelma wanting to marry an African native named "Ebay" (no BS there - I laughed everytime I heard his name and yeah it's pronounced like the auction site too) who turns out to be a bigamist.

Eastbound & Down - TV Shows
This is one show that I never got the appeal of to begin with and I still don't. I found it impossible to like the main character or find him funny, a guy who is a vile, rude and obnoxious fellow - a one-dimensional character that got old quick. All of his actions just seemed to come along okay with the other characters and that bothered me. It is not necessarily complex humour either and the timing is lacking a lot of the time - this comedy comes across as "edgy", twelve-year old appeal. Rotten before the first episode ended. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 23, 2012, 6:26 pm

Tiger Woods - Celebrities
Tiger is regaining form, but he's never going to be the superstar he was 4-5 years ago. He's going to win some more tournaments and in fact he might win a few more majors. At one time a golfer turning 40 was almost a surefire moment when their big time winning was over, but with the advancements in technology and healthcare, golfers can stay competitive into their later 40s, as Ernie Els and Vijay Singh have shown. However, Tiger has had a history of injuries and I wonder if those will start having permanent repercussions. I can see him winning 1 to 2 more majors, but I don't think he's breaking Jack's record. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 19, 2012, 4:58 pm

It can be heard over the credits of Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey. I admit, if someone unfamiliar with KISS heard that song, they could easily mistake it for a Christian Rock song. It's actually a cover of Argent's song, so it's officially called "God Gave Rock and Roll to You II". -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 19, 2012, 2:26 pm

Back then, Muslims got along well with Christians and Jews.

If the good Muslims had the power to fight back and defeated them, Muslim nations would once again prosper. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 19, 2012, 2:17 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
I read the blog (thanks for posting it, Travoltron!). It echoes practically everything I think about the Simpsons then and now. It perfectly points out the biggest flaw with the Simpson's switch to digital ink and paint: "The fluid and vibrant hand drawn animation has been replaced by militarily rigid computer templates." It even shows the arrogance of Ken Keeler (who wrote that infamous Skinner is a fraud episode). He rebutted critics of the show by saying they get too attached to the characters. Well, yeah, if people don't get attached to the characters, then the show would fail. But thanks to the blog, we officially have an accurate name for what was once the Simpsons: Zombie Simpsons. Since the only way to get it to cancel is to make it less profitable, boycotting Simpsons stuff until the show's cancelled might be the 12-gauge shot to the head that takes this zombie down. -- Submitted By: () on September 19, 2012, 2:09 pm

Enos - TV Shows
@stryker: Enos wasn't a BIG reason for the Dukes of Hazzard being a hit, but he was a popular minor character on the show. He had a long-standing but never-resolved attraction to Daisy which was constantly played for comic effect. And by "never-resolved", I mean that Enos was so naive that while his engine was all stoked for Daisy, when it came to actually doing anything about his attraction, the train never left the station. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 17, 2012, 8:07 am

Enos - TV Shows
I actually saw this one when it aired. I remember it as being goofy, but not THAT bad. It did develop a signature sight gag which was kinda cool: Turk would hold out his hand, plam up, for Enos to give him five, and Enos would instead put a "thumbs-up" into Turk's palm. Initially, it was because Enos didn't know how to respond, but it became the partners' trademark. In retrospect, though, the show spent its whole run milking the "fish out of water" angle of Enos being in L.A., and Enos just ended up coming off like a badly executed carbon copy of Radar O'Reilly. Since M*A*S*H was still on the air at the time, that probably didn't do a thing for the show's efforts to establish a fanbase. Even though I've got some fond memories of the show, the objective verdict is "sucked from the start". -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 17, 2012, 7:59 am

I submitted Season Five as the point where the show boned the fish, but it might have been more an early warning than the actual tipping. First, Toby Young replaced Ted Allen. Young is a poor man\'s Anthony Bourdain who is far more concerned with \"witty\" repartee than actually doing his job as a judge. Second, the producers started taking a far more ham-handed approach to the show, doing their best to create a villain in Stefan Richter where none existed (villains, to the best of my knowledge, aren\'t generally the first to jump in and help when someone else\'s dish goes south because of equipment failure). Third, though the season was held in New York, after the first couple of episodes, you\'d never know it; there was nothing in any challenge beyond the second Quickfire that was unique to New York. -- Submitted By: (JiminNYC) on September 16, 2012, 10:27 pm

I think when they started playing "musical female hosts" it got a bit lame. I remember Phyllis George, then someone else, then Jayne Kennedy, then Phyllis again. Was there sexual harrassment going on that we weren't privy too, or were these women just underpaid? I remember Jayne Kennedy, who was briefly a pin-up thanks to her exposure on this show, left in a contract dispute and sank like a lead weight from public view after that. Then when Phyllis replaced her, they had her doing her bits from her living room while the rest of the guys were in the studio. Just seemed like they were bending over backwards to get "any nice looking woman" on the show. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 5:07 pm

Nancy Grace - TV Shows
It's easy to figure out what Nancy Grace is thinking. It's always "guilty!" She's never seen an innocent person accused. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 5:00 pm

Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman - TV Shows
I remember this being on too late for me to watch when it was 1st run, but the acclaim it got seemingly everywhere led me to give it a chance when TV Land aired it decades later. I was expecting a lot better from a "sophisticated" Norman Lear show. I found the characters annoying, unsympathetic and overacted, and the plots ridiculously contrived. It was like this show was trying to be "Soap" before "Soap" happened, and while being about 1/100th as funny. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 4:23 pm

Married with Children - TV Shows
I still watch this quite often in reruns, and I've determined this is a "Tale of Three Shows". There's the Steve episodes, the single / divorced Marcy episodes and the Jefferson episodes. When Marcy has a husband / Al's stooge, the episodes are mainly good. The episodes where she was between husbands, divorced from Steve, but pre-Jefferson, are insufferably bad with few exceptions. I think it boned when Steve left, but boned back when Jefferson took his place and Griff / No Ma'am were added as recurring characters. The only complaint about the Jefferson / No Ma'am ones is that they became very cartoonish. Still hilarious though. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 4:17 pm

Makin' It - TV Shows
He never had a hit TV show unless you consider "My Sister Sam" to have been one. I always thought it was awful myself. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 4:04 pm

Mad About You - TV Shows
So many boning moments in this one. How about the ep where a college professor, played by Nathan Lane, once had an affair with Jamie (Nathan Lane as a stud = automatic bone) before she ever met Paul, and he thinks Paul is "out to get him" as a result of this. I didn't realize caveman thinking was still that prevalent in the 1990s. Just a horribly unfunny episode, and what is it about married people on TV exploiting their ex-affairs? Most married people I know rarely bring those up. I sure don't. My wife doesn't need, or want, to hear about them and neither do I. It's the past. It's not my life anymore. If they were so great, I'd be there and not here. That's real life. Only TV life seems to struggle with that, but this particular episode was just cringe-worthy. Or how about the episode where Steve Buscemi blames Paul for him ending up a subway token clerk, because Paul forgot to wake him up in time to take an exam or something? My first Steve Buscemi exposure and it had to be this. Next thing I saw him in was "Reservoir Dogs", and thought, "wow, he CAN act!" -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 3:57 pm

Lone Ranger, The - TV Shows
BTW, the episode was called "Bad Medicine". I had to google it to make sure it wasn't just a weird dream I once had. Here's the imdb link to the ep: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0635325/synopsis -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 3:44 pm

Little House on the Prairie - TV Shows
Actually JayD, there was a "very special" episode involving a blizzard, and I'm pretty sure it was one of the early episodes with Mr. Edwards (in his first tour with the show - pre-Merlin Olsen). -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 14, 2012, 3:38 pm

Garfield (comic strip) - Random Topics
They finally explained where Lyman was on the new CGI cartoon. He had been living in the jungle all this time protecting the animals from poachers. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 14, 2012, 1:35 pm

Cosby - TV Shows
Parker, That was good but my fave was the one in which Rudy and her silent friend misused one of Cliff's useless kitchen gadgets and wound up accidentally trashing the kitchen. Let's just say this DID happen in our house when I was a small kid but I by no means got off as scot-free as Rudy did. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:53 am

Baby, I'm Back - TV Shows
Parker, I read it,too, and have to admit that I'd had no idea that this went down much less that's what took it off the air instead of more audience members [like me] hating the concept. Kinda surprised because I always thought that 'Lamont' was the voice of reason on 'Sanford and Son'. Well, IMO the show's premise was awful and the 'star' played a creep but I have to admit that I thought the actress who played his long-suffering wife was gorgeous and the character of Luzelle [the mother-in-law whom the audience was supposed to hate and root against while considering the creep heroic] was played by the late Helen Martin who was ALWAYS good for laughs. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:48 am

Hello, Larry - TV Shows
Parker, Please note that I said Mr. Stephenson had left 'M*A*S*H' to 'wind up' doing this show not that this was the very first thing he did thereafter. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:40 am

Carol Burnett and Friends - TV Shows
Parker, IIRC, Mr. Korman left 'Carol Burnett' to do a sitcom called 'The Harvey Korman Show' in which he played this barely employed, obnoxious older actor who got on everyone's case. No surprise that it only lasted six weeks. In any event, he did NOT return to 'Carol Burnett' before it went off the air and the show limped along after the Van Dyke fail and departure with just the three regulars of Miss Burnett, Tim Conway and Vicki Lawrence. Thankfully, these three were by no means petty people and happily welcomed Mr. Korman back to join in several series' retrospects- not to mention a few episodes of 'Mama's Family' and Tim Conway and Mr. Korman worked together quite extensively until Mr. Korman's death to Miss Burnett's delight. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 14, 2012, 9:37 am

National Hockey League (NHL) - Random Topics
The Deputy Commissioner, Bill Daly, put it best about the upcoming lockout, basically saying the owners AND the players are idiots. I don't forsee a year long lockout like last time, but I say it's time Gary Bettman gets tossed on his ass, and player sports unions be declared illegal or something. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 14, 2012, 1:09 am

Bill Nye the Science Guy - TV Shows
I liked this show, pretty educational. I also enjoyed Beakman's World. Not so much for the educational value, as it was just so wacky. I think the creators of this show were definitely smokin' something. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 13, 2012, 10:04 pm

Ryan Seacrest - Celebrities
Seacrest will never match Dick Clark, imho. Oh sure he probably makes more than Clark could have ever dreamed of, but quite frankly, he's nothing more than a hack. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 13, 2012, 9:58 pm

Kickstarter - Websites
A great tool for creators big and small, who cares if they want $900000 dollars for Pitfall 3? The people can decide if they want it. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on September 13, 2012, 8:50 pm

Designing Women - TV Shows
Wow, now I feel sorry for Dixie: "[Dixie] Carter was a Republican, a rarity in liberal Hollywood. So she made a deal with [Designing Women]'s producers. For every liberal tirade she had to deliver, she'd get to sing a song in an upcoming episode." So they forced Dixie Carter to soapbox beliefs she was very opposed to (on a freakin' sitcom!) and they fired Delta Burke for gaining weight. Series creator (and buddy of the Clintons) Linda Bloodworth-Thomason ain't lookin' to good to me. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 13, 2012, 6:27 pm

Baby, I'm Back - TV Shows
I read the wiki article after I posted below. I was literally shocked to find out this show was about to be picked up as it performed decently in the ratings, but Demond's ego got in the way of that by making unreasonable demands, so it was cancelled. It may have sucked. It sounds like it did, but that's not why they cancelled it. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 4:49 pm
