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.

Family Matters jumped the shark when Judy just vanishes and everyone acted like she never existed in the first place. "Carl we have two wonderful children" -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:53 pm

Family Matters - TV Shows
Okay, when Family Matters first started there was Harriet, Carl, Mother Winslow, Laura, Judy, Eddie, Rachel and Richie and it was all good with the big happy family. Then Steve Urkel came and was a background and it was still good, then Waldo was added in Season 3 and all of the family was still there then ABC had Urkel take over the show. Then suddenly the madness begins Judy disappears without an explanation like she never existed, Rachel disappears without any explanation (while her son stayed), Mother Winslow got married and was phased out, we get introduced to Myra, Stefan and 3J. Richie was seen once in a while and he was finally gone, Waldo leaves for cooking school, then Harriet #1 leaves and besides most of the family disappearing the show lost it's plot with so much Urkel focus and the unrealistic inventions. So by the end of the series the original cast that is left are Carl, Laura, Eddie and Steve of course and the fake Harriet. That's it! Doesn't anyone see anything wrong with that?!? -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:52 pm

When the Winslows teleported to France. And Urkel falls off the Eiffel Tower into the teleporter? Oh and by the way, Laura and Stefan just happen to go up on the catwalk. I'm surprised the show didn't move to Sci-Fi rather than CBS. Time travel? Space travel? Robots (earlier seasons, but still annoying)? Did we really need a knock-off of "Small Wonder?" -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:47 pm

It was a normal enjoyable family show. But then, out of nowhere, it became like crazy, inane science fiction. Steve invented a transformation chamber "turned" himself into Stefan, which was stupid enough, but then he started invented shrinking rays, a teleporter, cloning machine and all sorts of bizarre stuff. I mean it was just insane. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:45 pm

When Harriet suddenly went from dark-skinned sassy lady (good) to light-skinned whiner ("Oh, Carl. . ."), when Laura dressed like a guy to get a car (why would you give your business to some shady porker anyway?), takes weight loss pills, dates/dumps/dates losers and finally falls for a clone of Steve, then drops him and wants the real Steve, when Grandma stopped being a regular, etc -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:41 pm

It totally jumped with Urkel. It was supposed to be a nice family show about a normal family (okay, except for the strange disappearance of their youngest daughter), but suddenly it turned into the Urkel Show. It was bad enough that Steve Urkel was the single most annoying person on the planet (I watched for several seasons in hopes of seeing a "Very Special" gun safety episode in which someone, preferably Carl, would blow the idiot's brains out), but then they make the nice sitcom an unrealistic piece of crap when Urkel starts inventing. I mean, a transformation chamber? An instant cloning machine? A transport pad? Yeah, the writers were definitely on crack. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:39 pm

Here's an example of a typical Family Matters episode summary from the final seasons: Oh No! Steve has morphed himself into Stephan, but unfortunately the cool genes have gone awry and Stephan has become evil and wants to take over the body. Steve's only hope is to become Bruce Lee and teleport himself through time to fight the pirate that Stephan has become. Unfortunately 3J is using the pod to go to Paris and search for the 9 year old Judy that randomly disappeared from the family. If that's not jumping the shark, then I don't know WHAT is.... -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:37 pm

One year, Judy was there, and so was Aunt Rachel. Next year, the cousin was over at the house, and Aunt Rachel didn't exist. Judy dissolved as well. My theory is she played Nintendo too much. You notice the year before she left she was not around much. The few times she was around, she mentioned she was going to play Nintendo after finishing homework. So Judy stayed up there for the rest of her life, and didn't eat dinner with the rest of the family in future episodes. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:20 pm

All I can remember specifically about the show was this episode where Urkel and Eddie go to some college party and end up outside on the fire escape and the whole thing collapses. I found it extremely funny at the time, but I was also profoundly stoned at the moment. I saw that episode again recently and said to myself, "What the hell was I laughing at the first time?!" -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:15 pm

If it wasn't bad enough that they made Judy dissapear (along with MANY other things like Stephan, 3J, Urkelbot, Myra, new Harriet, and the list goes on) the grandmother, probably the only character I could stand, suddenly disappeared too. It's like the producers of this show deliberately tried to ruin/sabotage itself. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:14 pm

This show for me jumped the shark at many different times. Like for one, how are they going to get rid Judy without saying a word. I mean at the very beginning of the show there were three kids, but somewhere along the line there were only two. I MEAN COME ON! That was stupid. How are you just going to get rid of one kid without an explanation. The same thing happened with Rachel. She just left, no goodbyes, no peace out, deuces, NOTHING. I mean damn she didn't even take her only son with her. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:10 pm

I don't know about you all, but I HATED Waldo!! He was almost as annoying as Urkel, and DUMB!!!!. And I'm sorry, but Eddie Winslow was not a stud whatsoever, not with that messed up haircut he had and the mismatched colors he wore. And not only Judy's disappearance, how does one explain when Thelma Hopkins left, but left her son Richie with the Winslows? What kind of arrangement did they have? And I'm sorry, but you cannot fall in love with a person who walks out of an invention (Stephen), but can't stand him when he's Urkel. Laura was just in love with an image, that's all. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:09 pm

Someone commented on the marked similarity between Family Matters and Happy Days, and I should point out it's no coincidence. The same people (Miller and Boyett) had worked on both shows, so it's not surprising they'd repeat the same formula ad nauseum. Presenting the Miller-Boyett Cookie Cutter Sitcom Kit!

My theory is that Happy Days and Family Matters is almost the same show. 1)Show centered around "typical" midwestern family with three kids. 2) Third child mysteriously disappeared. 3) Minor character added for flavor (Fonzie & Urkel) gradually take over the show 4) Overweight, blustery, but actually teddy bear father (Carl and Howard Cunningham)first can't stand then by the end defends minor character who took over the show. 5) Minor character develops "special powers" and becomes superhuman. 6) Warren Potsie Weber and Waldo Geraldo Faldo same character- well meaning but dumb friend -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 5:05 pm

Almost as weird as the disappearing Judy is that when Telma Hopkins left the show, her character Rachel, left her son, Richie behind. I liked Rachel, but like who DOES that???

WTF! Okay seriously. The show was supposed to be FAMILY Matters, not The Adventures of Steve Urkel....I remember the first episode quite clearly. Rachel, the sister, kept hanging out with Carl and the Harriet on their dates and Carl is getting upset because he thinks Rachel should get her own boyfriend. OK I guess... Then Episode 2: Urkel shows up...AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! The show had problems from the start. There was the mom, dad, three kids, sister, grandma, sister's baby, nerdy next door neighbor, boy's friend, girl's friend, nerdy next door neighbor's girlfriend, nerdy next door neighbor's other half.... it goes on. I like the grandma, and Rachel. Hell, I liked the family. Then one by one they died off. Judy left. Suddenly Richie could talk. The grandma became a background. Rachel disappeared, leaving her son in the care of her sister. Then suddenly they go to Disney World and "Hello Rachel" Ugh..... -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 4:59 pm

Urkel's voice was well beyond any rational relationship to his age and appearance. Each person will have to use their own judgment but there is a certain twinge that ran up my back like a spider covered with static electricity when I heard Urkel speak in that high nasal twang and realized that any parent of a child that age still speaking in that disturbing voice would either take the kid to a doctor or bury him in the basement. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 4:54 pm

Even though I really love this show and watch it on lifetime, I have only a few problems with it. I was very annoyed when every show turned into a pulpit for Julia Sugarbaker and her women's rights/southern hospitality rants. I also hated it when every word out of Anthony's mouth was "When I was in Prison..." or "I have this friend who I met in jail.." Those got tiring quick. And why was he the only man on the show? And didn't they all just realize that he was gay? Sure he dated a few women, but it was obvious. And one more thing before I go, when did these people ever work?? I'm just saying. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:43 pm

"A Different World", towards the end of its run, was so heavy and deep into the Afro-Centrism philosophy that I fully expected Louis Farrakhan, of the Nation of Islam fame, to make a guest appearance on at least one episode and urge all people of color to renounce any ties they had remaining with the Caucasian race. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:22 pm

Season one she's a stuck up southern belle, complete with a low-self-esteem having sidekick. Great character. By the time she hooks up with Dwayne she's a farce.

The whole show just started crumbling when Denise got her haircut. Before that, we had the happy little Huxtable family, getting into trouble all by themselves. It was fun. The minute that hair came off, all the horrible storylines and characters started filtering in; Olivia, Elvin, twins, singing to Grandma & Grandpa at least once a month, you name it. If you look back, you'll see, it was the hair that did it. Just like it's ruined so many other good shows. Haven't producers figured it out yet?

The show then took a dive when Denise suddenly came back from Africa with a husband and stepdaughter. "Who's this? Your new husband? And he has a daughter? Well, why don't we let her live here?" WHAT THE HELL? Another low; the second lip-synch. The first one was funny because it was new, but by the second time, not so much. Dad is a doctor, Mom is a lawyer, and yet the "gift" they keep giving is a song and dance. Another dip was the addition, in a relatively short span, it seemed to me, of any celebrity they could lay their hands on. Oh, and Grandpa is a jazz musician, too. "Yeah, he used to blow with Monk and Charlie Parker. Let me introduce you to my close personal friends in this super-tight jazz combo. You'll never see these people again."

One episode that irked me is where Cliff tried to show the 'clumsy white dude' how to toss a basketball. I mean, come on! Does your OBGYN invite you back to his place to shoot hoops 'cause you're uncoordinated? I don't think so. And the 'SD' pin was quite irritating. Uhh Cliff, did you have to make the thing the size of a pie plate? And wear it over everything from pajamas to your bath towel? Cripes! I'm probably leaving a lot out, but I guess the number one thing that bothered me about the Cosby Show was all the MUGGING. No, not as in robberies. As in facial contortions. Whether it was Cliff's stupid smirk on the opening credits (I wanted to punch him--especially in the one where he does the finger waving over the eyes bit), Claire's one-of-only-three possible expressions (smug, mad or fakely serene), or the cutesy kids attempting to tug at the heartstrings of the audience, the mugging drove me mental. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:12 pm

The stories revolving around Pam and her "after school special" problems and issues simply did not mesh well when juxtaposed against the squeaky clean Huxtables. Especially the first few episodes with Pam and that ongoing 2 part story about Pam wanting birth control pills. First of all, who IS Pam? I don't mean this literally, it is mentioned once that she is Clair's 4th cousin but that is exactly my point. She just shows up one day and suddenly this is Cousin Pam & Friends. Why is the audience supposed to suddenly care about somebody never mentioned or shown before to the point of devoting episodes exclusively to her?

OK, first of all, the oldest daughter Sondra came out of nowhere. Where was she anyway? Chillin with Amy Osborne I guess. She served absolutely no purpose other than to make the show mirror Cosby's real life by having five kids. And where was this girl from? Melissa Gilbert had more soul than she did. And Vanessa's gravity defying afro during the Alvin Ailey season. Claire finds a joint in Theo's school book and Theo says it's not his and they believe him. Yeah, right! And what's with Cliff offering to pay just about every person he comes in contact with college educations. He offers to pay for Sondra's Law school AND Elvin's med school education, when they decide to 'throw away their Princeton degrees' to go into business for themselves. And he talks about paying his wife's 4th cousin twice removed Pam's way through college. Yet when one of his kids asks for 50 cents, he's fucking Pa Walton! Apparently his budget only allowed for expensive extremely colorful Coogi sweaters and sending everyone and their mother to college and grad school. Theo goes from being an carefree slacker, to a responsible, pontificating genius in one season, and Denise goes from being a bright, focused, free spirit, to an incompetent airhead. And all of a sudden, after six seasons, Cliff decides that the show needs 'real' black kids, so suddenly Pam and her crew conveniently appear at the doorstep. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 10:01 pm

Cousin Pam, the Fresh Princess of Brooklyn. Just WHY was she there anyway? Her mother was still alive. Why would she palm off her adult daughter on relatives that she wasn't even that close to? Anyway, Pam was the ultimate shark jump on a show that had many smaller jumps over the course of its run. Do not watch the last season unless you want to be nauseated by Pam and her jive-talking boyfriend (who had me spitting nails every time he opened his mouth: "Well ya see, Mr. Huxtable, I'm gon' check out dis college just to see if it meet my high standards"), Pam and her caricature girlfriend who sounded like Minnie Mouse on helium, Olivia and Cliff in painful scenes that seemed to go on forever, and later, Winnie and Nelson in the same type of scenes. Kids do say the darndest things, especially when they've been coached. But that's another story, and another show. Much of the last season of TCS is indistinguishable from KSTDT. As TCS got more popular, you could see the progression of Cosby's ego in his acting. And once he got that Ed.D, he became Moses atop the mount on every talk show, dispensing his words of wisdom on everything from how to raise children to how other comics should perform.

I actually found many of the Lunchbox episodes hilarious. It wasn't until around after the time Roseanne got pregnant with "Jerry Garcia" that I started to find the episodes pretty lackluster and like they were running out of ideas. Women Roseanne's age CAN still have children, but it just seemed unnecessary, like she got pregnant just because Jackie did or something. And who names their kid Jerry Garcia Conner? Also, Jerry was pretty pointless. There were more than enough characters running around as it was. The storylines became more and more muddled and superfluous. The writing became less sharp and humorous. I think the show should have ended right after Jackie and Fred's wedding because to me that episode was the last episode that actually felt like "Roseanne" (with a couple of s exceptions, such as the episode where DJ didn't want to kiss the black girl in the school play which I think presented with the issue realistically). -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:29 pm

The first few seasons of Moesha were the best, but the ending of the show was the pits. Because of sudden cancellation, they just snatched the show off the air without explaining what happened to everybody. The entire last season was ridiculous with Moesha and Niecy hooking up with random ppl, not to mention the whole Dorian ordeal, and the show went off without telling who was pregnant, Moesha passing out because Miles was kidnapped, etc. The writers had already planned out what was going to happen next in the 7th season but because UPN cancelled the show none of the loose ends were ever tied up.

Why did Tyra have "one-on-one counseling" sessions with the girls who have "issues" in their lives? I thought the show was called "America's Next Top Model", not "America's Next Top Guidance Counselor". Every cycle they put Tyra in a room with one of these girls and she gives them her "Giiiiirrrrl, I've been where you at, and you've gotta get your life together. I went from Inglewood to Hollywood, and you can't do that if you keep beating bitches up and stealing!" pep talk, and somehow after one counseling session with Tyra, the girl cries, tells her whole life story, and then has a complete change of heart and life? And why dud Tyra talk with a whispery, breathy voice during these "counseling session sequences" as well as in the final sequence where she tells them if they made it through or not?

How about telling them how they can ya know, actually IMPROVE their walk? Granted, some of the girls DID walk like they were still evolving, but what do you expect when you stick somebody in 7 inch heels (for your entertainment) on a 2 inch runway on national television? Ppl end up going to the hospital and get threatened that if they aren't checked out by the time of the next elimination tomorrow night it will affect the judges' decisions on who goes home. Lol wow. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:27 pm

Not a shark jump moment, but I always laughed at the blatant product placements for Pantene, Banana Boat, etc. Mr. Jay would always endorse them under the guise of giving the girls direction for their photo shoot. "OK girls, today we're going to be using Pantene, because Pantene gives you great hair!" "You're all going to be wearing Banana Boat products, don't go out into the sun without your Banana Boat!" Gee, that's VERY subtle. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:20 pm

Nicole should NOT have won Cycle 5. She was bitchy and looked very "teen-magaziney". Tyra kept claiming that cycle that the so-called goal was to find the next high fashion top model but the most I could see Nicole doing is a Sears catalog. Janice could be mean a lot of the time but at least she was entertaining and sometimes she actually was truthful. But Twiggy was the ANTM version of Paul Abdul. She was always trying to be all PC and nice and not hurt anyone's feelings and let's face it, this is ANTM not Lambchop or Sesame Street. Nik was ROBBED. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:17 pm

ANTM became too campy. It has always had it's campiness but somewhere along the line, the steam (which used to be amusing, no matter how harsh it could be) began to run out. When the show was at it's peak though, it was hilarious. Because let's face it, although thoroughly entertaining, a lot of the humor stemmed from the pettiness of the judges' critiques. "Oh, your left eyebrow is a yoctometer off center. That just isn't gonna fly, and nobody will take you seriously in this industry because of it!" "You're too damn short for Top Model! What the hell were you thinking. You look like a Smurf for God's sake!" Or, "You're breathing wrong. Good luck with winning this competition." As if it's somehow ALL the girl's fault. Constructive criticism is ONE thing but berating somebody for their looks/height after YOU picked them for the show, is completely retarded. Like when they kept telling Mercedes she was too "commercial" looking and that she looked cute but like a mall girl. Ummm why did you pick her in the first place then? Which BTW, I always thought she was gorgeous. But I digress. ANTM was good for comic relief but was annoying when they hardly ever picked the girls who deserved to win. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:13 pm

They'll show a clip of some brat whining about s/he wants a toy. "Mooommmmmy! I waaaaaaannnt it! It's not faaaaaaaiiirrr! This is the worst day of my liiiiiife!" and the audience roars with laughter. Then the clip wins 10,000$ and the brat's parents and the host gush all over the kid, who sits there looking all proud of himself. What a lesson! Act like a spoiled brat, and you'll win big money and get to go on t.v.! Wow, thanks for the positive message to children everywhere, AFHM! What is *with* these parents?

Why is it that in real life, I have NEVER seen anyone lose their skirt or pants while dancing in Wal Mart; get hit in the face with a lemon meringue pie; get bitten by a horse, goose, duck or cow; or get hit in the nuts with a baseball...yet on this show it happened daily?

If your Grandma gets hit on the head with a baseball and falls off the roof of the house, NORMALLY it's tragic and horrible. But if your Grandma gets hit on the head with a baseball -BOINK!- and then falls off the roof of the house -ZWEEEEE! BOINK! BOING! PLOP!- while Bob Saget says "Grandma's lousy at baseball. Have a nice trip, see ya next fall!" it's supposed to suddenly be funny. At least that's the premise on this show. (And by the way, WHY was Grandma on the roof in the first place?

In my opinion, Golden Palace doesn't count as Jumping the Shark since it was a spinoff and GG was over by then. I did find the flashbacks to be a bit much eventually though. Like dude, how many flashback episodes can you possibly have in 7 years. It seems like every time I turn to Hallmark they are gathered at the table, opening up a pink box and the screen starts to get wavy and everyone's flashing back to episodes from last season. A flashback episode is OK every now and then but NOBODY has flashbacks about stuff THAT often, idc how old you are. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 7:22 pm

I've always found Bea Arthur magnificently funny, but the one thing I disliked is how she still put up with Stan so much. I kept thinking, doesn't she have some Sicilian relatives who could, you know, make him "go away"? I'm pretty sure Sophia could've hooked her up. Then, after the murder, they could all sit around the kitchen table in their silky pajama sets and robes and eat cheesecake and reminisce about their earlier adventures ad nauseum.

Like many others, I love the show dearly but I admit that these things made me go "wtf"...the fact they get along like peas in a pod from the onset and Blanche doesn't seem to mind these strangers moving into her home; and why was Rose even holding Mr. Peepers in a grocery store in the first show? Kind of unlikely, unless she's a seeing-eye cat. Sophia just shows up from Shady Pines unannounced (good thing they had that fourth bedroom!) LOL! But the most boring episode goes to: Empty Nest, that episode at the next-door neighbors' house.

Big Daddy was played by two different guys (one of whom which my mother said strongly resembled Colonel Sanders) but all that aside, Miles originally played a guy named Arnie, then not long after he returned as a guy named "Miles". And later in the series, we find out he was in the Witness Protection Program and lied about his overall identity (but still never was Arnie). Not necessarily an ultimate shark jumper but a bad continuity error nonetheless. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 7:06 pm

he first 2-3 seasons of the show rank with the best comedies ever made. The acting and writing is so clever and funny. The best way to identify the funniest episodes is by Bea's hairstyle: the episodes with the shorter haircut are the earliest. The show began its jump when Sophia began getting too smart. Her character should have remained more stoic with the hint of senility. Think of how much funnier she was when, in the first episode, she declares, "The man is a scuzball!" She remains fairly expressionless while Dorothy throws up her arms in disgust. This was high comedy. The show definitely made the jump when the characters became extreme, due mostly to lazy writing: Rose becomes ridiculously dumb, Dorothy painfully desperate and mean, Blanche an all out slut: remember the first season when Blanche and Dorothy are fighting over Dorothy's boyfriend having made a pass at Blanche? Dorothy calls Blanche a slut and she is terribly offended. After the show jumps, Blanche looks prouder after she is referred to as a slut every half hour. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 6:54 pm

The last episode should have been when Jackie and Fred got married in 1994. After that, the show declined into too many fantasy episodes and watered down plots. In the last episode, Roseanne seemed to be trying to get even with her critics in Hollywood, but ended up only slapping her fans in the face. What had once been a very funny story about the most realistic TV family to date turned out to be only a novel of the Roseanne Connor character. The fans who made Roseanne wealthy were cheated by this ending. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 4:26 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
Roseanne was a brilliant show - as good as sitcoms can get. There are dozens of episodes which are written and acted flawlessly. Just amazing craft. But around not long after Jackie married Fred the show hit the wall. A sudden shift of producers and writers -- not to mention Roseanne's break-up with Tom Arnold -- ended the magic. The seventh season was not as funny or polished as the previous ones. Then, the eighth season was astonishingly unfunny. And the ninth season was such a shift in tone and a betrayal of direction that it was like watching a train wreck. When I watch the reruns these days on TV Land or WE I stop after Jackie gets married. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 4:23 pm

OK, not to be homophobic, BUT......First Leon is gay, ok, his character was pretty funny. Then Nancy switches teams and OK...those 2 situations made for some funny lines, but the ultimate jump was when Bev came out. Suddenly she goes from frumpy, conservative, biased house-wife to swinging, beautiful, gorgeous girlfriend, has this great social life, lesbian. And don't get me started on the episode where Bev and her lover invite Leon and Scott over to dinner and they all start dancing like Rockettes. The ultimate jump. That whole last season was a waste, what a shame from a once brilliant show. Oh yeah, turns out in the end, Bev is straight and Jackie the guy-chaser was really gay.

The Cosby Show jumped when the Cosby Show turned into the Cousin Pam Show. The last 2 seasons are practically devoted exclusively to Cousin Pam. And why should we care about Cousin Pam? She just shows up out of nowhere with some unbelievable story about how her mother had to leave to care for a relative. Why wouldn't Cousin Pam go with her? Then after just showing up, we're all supposed to be so fascinated with her ghetto-like lifestyle and friends. If Cosby wanted to do a show like this, he should have just produced one on its own (a la Different World). The Cousin Pam story as an extension of the Cosby Show just didn't mesh well. We all tuned into the Cosby Show to see the Huxtables, and the last two seasons, it's almost as if the entire Huxtable family becomes an afterthought! Cousin Pam and Olivia aren't true Huxtables. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 4:04 pm

The Cosby Show jumped when I could no longer figure out who was living in the Huxtable house anymore. There were only 3 people that lived there consistently throughout the series: Cliff, Claire and Rudy. The last 3 seasons portrayed the Huxtable house as a literal revolving door with Martin, Denise, Olivia, Theo, Vanessa, Cousin Pam, Sondra, Elvin, Winnie and Nelson (am I forgetting anybody?) all coming and going incessantly. How many bedrooms was this house supposed to have anyway??? No wonder Rudy seemed so pissed all the time!!

I think bringing on Howard Hesseman (late of "W-KRAP In Cincinnati") as Anne's love interest boned this shark. Never liked his Johnny Moonbeam character or him as an actor (remember "Head Of the Class"?), he added absolutely nothing to the series, so this was simply the kiss of death to an already terminal show.

Although the show hung on for at least a half season after Steve Carell left, with the two very funny "search Committee" episodes, it soon began to go down hill fast. With the emphasis more and more on Jim, Dwight and the insufferable Pam, as well as idiotic new characters (the fat guy with glasses and the supposed "stud" that Erin eventually falls for) led to a vapid and witless finale that endeared no one (Kelly abandoning a baby, Jim not taking a great job to be Dwight's flunky, Michael coming back with KIDS, Toby being humiliated - again) to the audience.

Initially, this show was in line with most late 80s sitcoms. Instead of Roseanne, you had Harriet Winslow, a hard working elevator operator living in the mean streets of Chi Town. They, like the Bundys, were far from having the status the Huxtables had. Then, out of nowhere, a young man by the name of Steven Q. Urkel claimed he wanted to take Laura Winslow to the School dance and history was made. At first, Laura and Eddie were like most sitcom daughters and sons, but Laura went from being the smarter younger sister to being a tigeress. Without Urkel, though, she would have been invisible for the rest of the first season. People only tuned in from '90-'91 to see if Urkel would finally get his Laura. Needless to say, Urkel owned the very early 1990's -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on August 5, 2014, 1:30 pm
