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.

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

Kiss - Music Groups
Knights in Satan's Service...I've heard that alleged backronym, too. A friend of mine asks, if they really WERE in Satan's service, would they have played "God Gave Rock and Roll to You"? 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

Islam - Random Topics
Back then, Muslims got along well with Christians and Jews. However, one day, the extremists took over and kicked out everyone who was not a Muslim from Jerusalem, which was the trigger for the Crusades. Islam is not a religion of hate, it's just been hijacked by the people who twisted it to suit their fanatical desires, and maintained by the people they managed to brainwash. 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

I still enjoy it, but it hasn't been as interesting since the Gilroy/Simon saga. I keep hoping they'll bring Simon back.

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

Top Chef - TV Shows
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

NFL Today, The - TV Shows
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.

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

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

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

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

The all time dumbest episode of this was the one where Lita Ford guest starred, and Herman cheats on a girl he really likes with her. The girl finds out. He gets dumped, and Lita (big surprise coming here) never thinks of Herman as anything more than a one-nighter. I guess the moral is, if you cheat you stand to get dumped, even if it's with someone you think NOBODY would turn down......except NOBODY who was a Herman-type yuppie would have the opportunity to turn Lita Ford down in the first place. I think this was a season 2 episode and very indicative the writers were running out of ideas, which is why it wasn't picked up for a 3rd. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 4:23 pm

Only Fred Ziffel and wife had passed on by this time. Unlike "The Odd Couple - Together Again", which made the brilliant move of re-casting Murray The Cop and the other poker players apart from Speed, Green Acres understood we wanted to see the same actors playing the same characters. The plot was a little contrived, and there were many nods to how much time had passed (like the Gorby reference and Eb's teen-angst riddled son who liked "Guns & Roses"), but it was the first new Green Acres episode in almost 20 years. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 3:48 pm

Price Is Right, The - TV Shows
I DVRed the 40th anniversary special and finally got around to watching it the other night. While it was cool that they brought back some old contestants and showed some great old clips, I'm a little baffled that they didn't bring Bob Barker back to join in the festivities. Drew Carey's response when asked was "the thought didn't even cross our minds." Whoa, low blow there. I have a feeling the show has been trying to distance themselves from Barker for the past few years now. Maybe because of his past lawsuits, maybe because he truly was dictator to the staff, maybe because of his increasingly vocal activism on animal rights, I don't know, but something tells me that both CBS and the TPIR staff don't want him around. I get it that he's been off the show now for 5 years and it's time to turn the page. Drew Carey's doing a good job as host, the last links from the Barker era, Rich Fields and Fingers Greco, have left, and the show isn't what it was in 2007 when Barker hung up his microphone. Mike Richards has taken over and changed the show, in some ways good (updated games, prizes, set pieces, special weeks), in some ways bad (too many celebrities, too rushed, games that are too difficult to win), but he's made his mark and the show, all things considered, is updated while still retaining the nostalgia of TPIR that we know and love. All that said, Barker hosted for 35 years and is a huge reason its still on today. Even if it was just remarks, he should have had some role in the anniversary. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 13, 2012, 3:39 pm

I think she's foxy. She's like the "Martha Quinn" of this time period. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 3:16 pm

F Troop - TV Shows
I love that recurring gag where the cannon fails to fire, Dobbs kicks one of the wheels (what is that supposed to DO?), which falls off as the cannon abruptly fires and knocks down the lookout tower as a hapless Trooper Vanderbilt (of course the most nearsighted guy in the fort is the lookout) jumps out at the last moment to avoid being crushed inside it. That and "IT IS BA-LLOOOOOOOOOONNNN!!!!!" -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 3:09 pm

Designing Women - TV Shows
Yeah, I agree. Next time Dixie Carter opens her mouth, someone stuff a sock in it. Unwatchable tripe, especially after that bottle blonde from Newhart replaced Delta. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 2:48 pm

Celebrity Deathmatch - TV Shows
Maybe I was too old when this premiered, but I can't fathom anyone actually needing to be home at a certain time so they can watch this. Seems juvenile. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 2:16 pm

Carol Burnett and Friends - TV Shows
Pelirojo, correct me if I'm remembering something wrong here, but I thought Harvey Korman left before the final season because he got his own variety show, which also didn't work out and was cancelled after only a few episodes. I thought after his own show was cancelled that he returned to Carol Burnett to replace the short-lived Van Dyke and finish out the show's final season. Like I said, could be wrong. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 13, 2012, 2:06 pm

Kickstarter - Websites
This was such a great concept and I know a lot of people have been helped by this site. But now you've got guys like David Crane wanting $900,000 to make Pitfall 3 that are ruining it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 13, 2012, 12:09 pm

Hillary Clinton - Celebrities
Heard her on the radio saying how "shocked" she was about the attack and murder of the US ambassador because we "liberated" Libya (and I suppose she foolishly expected gratitude). Yeah, well, if you read my comments on this website Ms. Clinton, I told you not to get involved with Libya. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 12, 2012, 7:21 pm

Now i know many of the news articles, you lose faith in humanity when you look at the comments section, but lately... it seems like even some of the articles where the majority of the people should form sensible opinions now are being trolled. It's quite sad really -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 12, 2012, 12:55 pm

Cablevision - TV Shows
Cablevision still acts like a monopoly even though they are not. The latest sick Cablevision joke is their dispute with The Tribune Company which is currently depriving us of WPIX and Antenna TV. Next time Verizon FIOS comes a-calling again, I'll be inclined to take them more seriously this time. The Dolans, who run Cablevision, also own Madison Square Garden, The Knicks and Rangers. 'nough said. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 12, 2012, 11:34 am

As Time Goes By - TV Shows
Wow! 13 years on the air? Time really did go by for this one. I like it though. I think it's a good show. Just saw the first one on PBS the other night. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 12, 2012, 11:32 am

My kids eat this show up. One day, I had to ask my daughter "You DO realize that High School is NOT really like this, don't you?" We're cool. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 12, 2012, 11:27 am

Battlestar Galactica 1978 - TV Shows
The worst episode in this series, IMO, was the one where they landed on the Cowboy Planet and there was this Cylon gunslinger everyone had aptly nicknamed 'Red Eye' essentially running the town. I am well capable of Suspending Disbelief for the sake of Science Fiction but this episode really took me to the limits of that skill. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 12, 2012, 11:21 am

Enos - TV Shows
Wow! I didn't know they even had Crack back then because whoever dreamt up this stinker of an idea for a show was obviously smoking it at the time. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 12, 2012, 11:14 am

Something So Right - TV Shows
Due to a resurgence in popularity of the iconic 1970's American family sitcom 'The Brady Bunch' in the 1990's, there were, at least, a couple of attempts, aside from Sherwood Schwartz's efforts with the actual Brady Bunch franchise, to create shows around the 'Blended Family' concept/formula and recapture that old television magic. One such attempt was the somewhat short lived family sitcom Something So Right. The ONLY reason I know anything at all about this show is that I was in the studio audience for the taping of the episode Something About Burning Bridges, Meat and Rugs with guest star Melanie Mayron. I had a professional acquaintance who worked crew on this show who was kind enough to get my wife and I tickets to a taping. At that time, I had never been to the taping of a real sitcom before and thought it would be an entertaining and educational experience (seeing as I was trying to break into the TV and Film industry at that time) and it was. Pardon the digression, but if you ever wish to attend a sitcom taping as an audience member, here are some pointers to keep in mind: A: If possible, familiarize yourself with the show, it's premise and the characters. You'll follow it so much better when you're in the studio live. That way you won't be saying to yourself "Now wait a minute. What's the deal with this family? Who is this guy? Is he a regular?", etc. B: Be sure you eat a meal BEFORE you go to the taping. Make it a filling meal, but not one that will make you uncomfortable or uhhhhh gassy. More on that in pointer C. C: Be certain it is a show you actually like. Believe me, if you can't manage to sit through a 30 minute episode of a show, making it through a taping of the same show as an audience member is sheer agony. Tapings are usually done in the evening, starting between 6 & 7, and can go upwards to 5-6 hours, possibly longer. That's why they typically have comedians who work the audience during setups to keep them fresh and entertained. Also, if you try to leave early, they will do everything in their power, short of bribing you with things of value, to get you to stay. D: Make sure you don't have anything planned early the next morning. Refer back to pointer C above. Anyway, back on subject. After attending the taping, I made it a point to catch some episodes on TV. It was pretty underwhelming to say the least and I can see why it was so short lived, on BOTH networks. It just wasn't a remarkable or terribly original show in my opinion. As I didn't follow the show outside the couple of episodes I caught, I can't really say for sure when the boning moment occurred. If anything, I suppose I could say that due to it being based upon a formula that had already been done, I'd go out on a limb and say Day One. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 12, 2012, 11:01 am

Seinfeld - TV Shows
To this day, I'll never understand Seinfeld's appeal. It was stupid. Perhaps that was the point, I don't really know or care. I just don't like that show, nor Jerry Seinfeld's stand up. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 11, 2012, 9:57 pm

Bosom Buddies - TV Shows
I voted "Never Boned", but ABC boned for it. The network was this show's biggest problem. Cancelled, resurrected and moved around the schedule more than once. By the time it was brought back for the last time, I think the writers had the guys "out" themselves just to change things up and have Kip and Sunny take the next step in their relationship, but like people pointed out, the tension was gone. I think the whole thing was rushed because the writers were walking on eggshells, waiting for ABC to pull the carpet out from under them...AGAIN....which of course they did. At the end of the day, Bosom Buddies was a good show that was handled poorly by the network. The "Mountain Pine" episode with guest Russel Johnson (The Professor) was a classic! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 11, 2012, 3:47 pm

Bonanza - TV Shows
OMG! Soggy really hit the nail on the head with that one! I know right away when Little Joe sees some chick and gets that "smitten look" on his face that I best be making a beeline for the remote and find a true crime story on ID or something. This is one episode bound to leave me bitterly disappointed. I've been through a broken engagement IRL. Everything isn't cool by the following week like on TV, so I avoid those episodes of BONE-anza like the plague. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 11, 2012, 3:37 pm

Blossom - TV Shows
Actually "Blossom" WAS the name of Tumbleweeds' horse in that comic strip, so the name fits. I get that she wasn't supposed to be hot. I found it annoying that she was so in demand in spite of this. What planet did this take place on? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 11, 2012, 3:33 pm

Baby, I'm Back - TV Shows
Parker, They likely were trying to get milk anything possible for humor for the show- even something that back then couldn't have openly been joked about on TV back then. A comedy where the protagonist had abandoned his wife and tiny children without a backwards glance [much less a dime of support] -until he found out he'd been declared dead and she was about to marry someone else and THAT is why he came alive again? Not funny. Oh, and I should also mention that this gambling rogue made little if any effort to try to reform himself after his 'revival'. Fred should have put Lamont [the show's 'star''s iconic role] and the whole concept in the junk pile! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 11, 2012, 10:33 am

Michael J. Fox - Celebrities
@Jp: The war film you're trying to think of is "Casualties of War". It's a pretty gritty flick and established Fox as a serious actor, IMO. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 11, 2012, 7:56 am

Doobie Brothers, The - Music Groups
Why wouldn't the guys from What's Happening not like the Doobies? When Mike McDonald joined the band, they had switched from being a bluesy country rock band to being a blue eyed soul band. His voice is pleasant but sometimes it does sound like he's got a mouthful of mashed potatoes. having said that, I don't think they ever boned, not even the catfish mentioned in "Black Water." -- Submitted By: (JayD) on September 11, 2012, 1:00 am

He's a controversal figure now after calling the president a hoax and mocking him by talking to an empty chair. After all these years, the once unbonable has now boned. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on September 11, 2012, 12:38 am

Step By Step - TV Shows
It was a rather forgetable show. I vaguely remember it. Heck, I don't think it was ever on DVD or even shown as syndicated reruns. Patrick Duffy will always be Bobby Ewing and Susan Sommers will always be Chrissy Snow or the Thigh Master lady. No one will remember them for this show. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on September 11, 2012, 12:19 am

Archie Bunker's Place - TV Shows
It started out OK, but when Martin Balsam left the show, it boned. The Murray Klein character was a decent "liberal foil" for Archie at the bar. When he left, they made Archie more liberal....probably too liberal for the audience's own good. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on September 10, 2012, 10:21 am
