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.

Taxes - Random Topics
I'm proud to not have to pay taxes, least not yet. If our tax dollars was worth it, we would have seen some improvements by now, but we haven't. Governments spend tax dollars aimlessly and their favorite spots to waste those tax dollars are military and probably corporate funding. Why should we even trust them anymore? They SPEND more than they GAIN, that says a lot right there. Bunch of irresponsible fuckwits. A tax I'm specifically irritated by is the soda tax. They claim it's to "fight obesity". Well, it's doing a shitty job at it. First off, did taxes stop smokers from buying dozens of cigarette packs? No. It has kinda slowed it down, but they're still there. What makes you honestly think taxing soda is gonna slow down obese people? How about encourage the obese people that the option to lose weight is there and tell them infront of their fat faces. That the reason they're obese is because of their lack of self-control. Don't make the rest of the people suffer unnecessary taxes because people can't control how they eat! -- Submitted By: () on April 8, 2015, 7:00 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
This show has really taken off and now regularly beats it's lead-in, The Middle (source: TV By the Numbers). One thing that has helped is less of a reliance on story lines revolving around the 11-year old Adam and more of a focus on the older teen siblings and the parents. I think it was something of a stretch to expect adults to get into the head of a kid as young as Adam but much easier to identity with high schoolers getting ready for college and getting into drinking, smoking pot, and sex. As for the mangled 80's references, it seems they have cut back on that gimmick as well as the obnoxious video taping by Adam. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on April 3, 2015, 8:42 am

Public Libraries - Random Topics
My library is nice enough to have wi-fi so that if you had a laptop, you weren't bogged down with the sign-up process. That point, you could have as much net time as you need until the library closes. I'm torn with the whole DVD or even VHS (depending on your local library, I know mine has them.) Because in one hand, I believe we should have DVDs or any media that focused on documentaries, biographies, autobiographies and anything else shouldn't be bothered with. Another hand says, DVD is a DVD, if you need some form of entertainment. I'm also torn on the net issue, actually, I'm not. The net, especially in a public library, should be for informational purposes. Get your broke ass up, find a job and get your own internet for other uses. I have a personal role with my library now, I see how many pornographic bookmarks I can find on a computer before deleting them. Kinda ridiculous how many you could find, in addition to people not smart enough to log out of their facebook accounts too. -- Submitted By: () on April 2, 2015, 9:08 am

PSP - Random Topics
I never understood they they bothered trying to force the idea of playing movies and music on it. It's made to play games and that's all it should do. It's too unattractive to be a movie player and definitely not an attractable player for music. There are already better alternatives to those, but Sony bothered releasing movies for the UMD format just as an excuse to buy the PSP for. -- Submitted By: () on April 2, 2015, 8:55 am

Tool - Music Groups
I'm rather a tad worried about when and if the 5th Tool album will ever come to light. Will they be as technical, complex, trippy, thought provoking and heavy as they were times before? They're about all in their 50s by now, including Maynard. If Maynard even loses an ounce of his vocal capabilities more than once or in fact, any of the members losing their stride in this album, then it'd be over. I don't expect another Aenima hit, but, more material from Tool is a must. -- Submitted By: () on April 2, 2015, 8:42 am

Lady Gaga - Music Groups
Someone commented and had the audacity to label her shocking image comparative to Marilyn Manson's shock rock image. Okay, in the pop music industry, you're manufactured to be controversial. That is, if your popularity is about to fizzle out. I mean, look at Miley Cyrus. Being controversial in pop is a tool to gain popularity back. When being shock rock, you do it out of some level of sheer belief and really hit home what you're intending to be so shocking about. Something Gaga apparently lacks when compared to Manson. -- Submitted By: () on April 2, 2015, 8:23 am

I rememeber the Bill Cosby whistleblower's name that I mentioned--Hannibal Buress, of course! Anyway, Natasha Leggerio, Martha Stewart(!!!), Snoop Dogg, Hannibal Buress (the guy that outed Bill Cosby as a pervert), and your guest roast host, Kevin Hart. It was for the most p;art pretty good, though there were some rather soft soaping of JB and after some very satisfactorily nasty assults on Justin, Martha Stewart then kisses him (but was still very good at what she did on that show). Would still love for Amy Schumer, Howard Stern, Lisa Lampanelli, Sarah Silverman, Chris ROck and others to have been there! This has since been rated the top three CC roast (1st being 2011's "Charlie Sheen", 2nd being 2005's "Jeff Foxworthy", and 3rd now the current "Justin Bieber). -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on March 31, 2015, 11:43 pm

1990's - Random Topics
I was born in 1989, but I only had 3 1/2 months with the 80s, while the 90s became my decade to grow up with. The 90s, to me, looking back at it and fast forwarding to now. It was the last decade where everything felt great to just live in. It had the "in your face" attitude and it was probably the last decade where anyone told you to "tough it up and deal with it." mentality. Since the 2000s, however, everything shifted but I would agree with MCS about 9/11. It was THE turning point for the world and society as we knew it. Everyone decided to be more afraid and now all of a sudden we've got to be politically correct about everything we do or say anymore. Otherwise, our country will frown and prosecute us if we act out of bounds towards terrorism. Least what they think is terrorism, anyways, considering they think rational thinking is about up there with terrorism. The "tough it up and deal with it" mentality is now replaced with "everyone is equally special in their own way, here's a hug and a pat on the shoulder." mentality. It may not be a great decade to others because of certain events or so. But, to me, it was really the last decade everything felt awesome. Now things suck hard and continue to do so well into the 2010s from the 2000s. -- Submitted By: () on March 31, 2015, 9:55 am

Unidentifed Flying Objects (UFOs) - Random Topics
It suggests to me that, it was easier to trick people back then with what technological limitations that was available at the time. But, since technology advanced and it's everywhere. Then suddenly, it'd be difficult to fool anyone without them asking over 50 questions of the legitimacy of whatever is taken. It's like with God and Jesus. Thousands of years ago, everyone believed the prophecies and the scriptures written in a book. Thousands of years later, the religion is used as a shield to hide behind to excuse one's misbehavior and criminal schemes. While as a tool to whip people into line before they are truly accepted. -- Submitted By: () on March 31, 2015, 7:27 am

Tim Burton is like a one-trick pony to me. Can he not make a whacked out, quirky and obscure film? I mean, yeah, the remake of Planet of the Apes was that moment. Then it just went back to Buron's usual ways. I mean, it's not like I hate everything he's made, but the stuff he's made are just more excuses for Hot Topic to make merchandise out of.

REAL Ghostbusters, The - TV Shows
Hey, everybody, there was an actual organization (and Action for Childrens Television, for once, was NOT involved as far as I know :D) responsible for that second season overhaul..From Los Angeles Times, September 1987 (and I actually READ this when it was published..!) [quote, (c)Los Angeles Times] Diane Haithman, L.A.Times: [Originally Posted September 16,1987]: Saturday mornings on ABC will look a little different this fall. Some of those behind the scenes on this season's programs like the new look. Others hate it--and the force behind it--with a passion. Changes in the way some familiar cartoon characters speak, act and look in ABC's Saturday morning children's schedule, as well the design of new shows, are largely due to the input of a Glendale-based company with a name like something out of a James Bond movie: the Q5 Corp. In developing programs for the new season, third-rated ABC turned to Q5 for help in improving their kid appeal--and their ratings. [unquote] The author then gets to Ghostbusters and quotes trhe outrage among the people working on it...Just put in Google Search, "Q5 Corp." and "Ghostbusters", Q5 being the name of the group. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on March 29, 2015, 8:51 pm

MeTV has been cycling through CHiPs for the last few months, and we've noticed that the early seasons were better than the later ones.

Charlie Brown Specials - TV Shows
In reply to Eugene's comment, Schulz, ironically hated the pleasant, cool-jazz soundtrack originally. This is oft-refered to from day one as using Hanna-Barbera sound effects but I believe this show predated H-B (which was still adding sound FX to its own inventory) in using some of those cartoony sounds (which themselves seem a bit odd in these specials LOL) to HB's library. But by September 1966, there was no zone between Hanna-Barbera and Melendez-Mendelson, the latter dynamic duo being the ones who made all these Peanuts specials since the first. (Then they started using WB and Jay Ward sounds in the 1970s!) -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on March 26, 2015, 8:04 pm

MCS, totally agree with you (but I still love the ones before the 80s and F'beagle)..and I agree, MCS, that Charle Brown did get bullies a little too much... then there was (also in the 80s) "Someday you'll find her") which has Charlie losing the love of his life to Woodstock, Linus, and Snoopy..but then again this was NOT the Little Red Haired Girl (whose own 1977 appearance may have also been a good shark jump since we SAW her now) but some blonde little girl that Charlie Brown saw on a television game (he DOES turn down another little girl who starts to crush on him while he's trying to find this little girl that he only saw on TV wehile two timing on the little red head girl...).. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on March 26, 2015, 7:58 pm

REAL Ghostbusters, The - TV Shows
The Real Ghostbusters is probably my favorite childhood show, and one that has held up to this day. While many of the cartoons I watched as a kid haven't aged well, Real Ghostbusters can still hold this adult's interest. As far as boning, the other commenters have the correct idea, but there is a third aspect of the boning not mentioned (the departure of the story editor). To summarize, Real Ghostbusters boned after Season 2 (the 65 episode syndicated 'season'). Three things happened. 1. The story editor, J. Michael Straczynski, left the show. 2. The focus of the show changed more over to Slimer, and the show slowly became more kiddie like. 3. Lorenzo Music (voice of Dr. Peter Venkmen) and Laura Summer (voice of Janine Melnitz; Janine loses her Brooklyn accent at this point) leave the show. A few of their episodes were even later redubbed. One silver lining as that all 3 of these things happened all at once, so one can simply not watch any episodes after Season 2. Stracynski did return a couple of years later for a few episodes, but it wasn't enough to save the series. -- Submitted By: () on March 21, 2015, 5:24 pm

Fist of the North Star - TV Shows
There's a running routine you'd have to get used to in order to progress through this show. Village living peacefully, bandits come in, bandits say stupid stuff, act all threatening and enslave the people in village or kill everyone. Bandits threaten hostages, Kenshiro comes in, bandits threaten hostages more, say they'll kick Kenshiro's ass a thousand times, get their asses kicked by Kenshiro, some leftover bandits run away and village back to peace. Rinse and repeat for almost half the show. But beside all of that, this show has some pretty deep development going for it. Every major villain has about a tragedy within themselves that make them do the things they do. They aren't doing it for the sake of just wanting the world. If you like seeing idiot bad guys just get dealt with in the most gruesome fashions possible. You'll enjoy this show, it's got good characters, strong development and writing, animation in some episodes go hand and in hand. Some quality of episodes look better than others while others look utter crap. If you still don't know where the phrase "You're already dead" came from. This show here. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on March 17, 2015, 8:46 am

Resurrection - TV Shows
Awesome show! It lasted two seasons which is amazing for an American series that deals with touchy subject matter that raised the ire of fundamentalist Christians. The show was first of all brilliantly written, directed and acted. It questions what we are and what happens when we die. Do we really have immortal souls? Can we come back after death? Is there a god? What is the nature of our reality? I will miss it but I am glad it got to run for two seasons. Omar Epps and Kurtwood Smith (Dr. Foreman from House and Red Forman from That '70's Show) turned in stunning performances on every episode. The biggest thing that freaked people out about this show was that it all revolved around the death of an 8-year old child. The boy came back but what was he? A demon or just a child needing a home? What would you do if your dead son came back home? Denounce him and turn him away or just love him and be thankful you were given a second chance to love him? -- Submitted By: (spacer) on March 8, 2015, 8:03 am

I never heard of this show, but I agree with the posters who are criticizing the apparent "everything that happened in the 80s being one big blur" premise. Even by modern TV standards that's too much. For example, in '82 I was 9. In '88 I was 15. Now, my memory of every single event that ever occurred in my life might not be 100% perfect but I (and almost everyone else) am at least able to differentiate between something that happened to me at age 9 and something that happened when I was a teen. That's not exactly asking the impossible. Unless the main character has some sort of brain damage, there's really no excuse for this sort of thing. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on March 2, 2015, 6:47 pm

Leonard Nimoy - Celebrities
I love TV and movies but I don't get into celebrity worship. Robin Williams was one of my favorite actors. When I heard of his death I reacted with "that's a shame," and moved on without a second thought. Something deeply strange happened when I heard Leonard Nimoy was dead. I was working at my desk around noon on Friday and decided to check out the news. I hit the NPR stream on my phone and they were playing the Star Trek theme from the original series. I thought, cool, a Star Trek story. Instead of the usual 10 or 15 second clip, they played the whole thing and I began to get uneasy, the music went on for too long and I knew something was up. After the theme finished a very somber NPR guy said, "Leonard Nimoy died this morning at his home in California. He was 83." Here's the weird part. I cried. The news hit me right in the gut and I sobbed like a little kid. I still can't figure out why. I had never met the man and had no personal connection to him or his family. Yet there I was crying over the news of his death. I guess Nimoy and the character he was forever tied to, Spock, represented the best of human (and Vulcan) character traits. While Kirk was the frat-boy "let's break the rules and bang the babes" kind of guy, Spock was the stand-up, do what's right nerd. He was the one who took deep pride in wearing the Star Fleet uniform and was very much the conscience of the USS Enterprise. Spock has been a part of my entire life, I never knew a time without him, or Leonard Nimoy, until now. If Gene Roddenberry's vision of a better future is to last it is because of the character Spock, so brilliantly brought to life by Nimoy. I mourn the actor's passing but I know Spock will live on for many more generations. Spock and Nimoy were the best we have to offer the universe. He was the best of us, the best of our hearts, and the best of our souls and minds. LLAP old friend in your new home. -- Submitted By: () on March 1, 2015, 7:15 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
Patton Oswalt, speaking to the critics of the show that demand 100% historical accuracy said it's not supposed to be an exact snapshot in time. If you listen to the way he delivers the line "it was September 8th (or whatever) 1980-something" you will hear him hesitate and almost mumble the last part because the character of adult Adam is embarrassed by his faulty memory. A running gag with the writers is to put two things together that don't belong, like a "new"game from 1984 with a "new" movie from 1982. People remember their childhood through a haze and often remember events wrong. Technically, this show is not a period piece but a show about an adult remembering the best parts of his childhood. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on February 28, 2015, 8:09 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
You guys act too childish to me. Not everyone is going to like the Goldbergs. To me, it went downhill when items from the early 1990s such as Hypercolor, New Kids junk, 8 Ball Jackets (I pretty sure I saw one) and that Bo Knows shirt turned up in '1980 Something'. I have no problem with the 80s pop culture references being scrambled around because the show is set in '1980 Something'(not an actual year of the 80s). Early 90s toys and shirts do not belong in '1980 Something'. The show un-boned after the Ferris Bueller special. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on February 26, 2015, 7:42 pm

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
I love how "expecting too much" is a reason for a TV show boning the fish. You guys said it yourself, "I shouldn't expect too much for this nonsense". If you shouldn't expect too much from something, what does that tell you about it? We live in the Google era, there should not be any shows with unreliable narrators in them. You can find anything with the tap of a finger nowadays. It's not like we're actually living in the 1980s and before. It's not like the creator of this show understands what the 80s were all about, anyway. Also, I hate how the creator doesn't realize Americans were still using tools like the Power Glove after 1989. The Power Glove was everywhere in all years of the Bush 1 era, not just '89. Don't believe me? Freddy Krueger uses a power glove to kill Spencer in Freddy's Dead from 1991. 1981-1987 were the core years of the 1980s. The creator should focus on the pop culture of those years and leave the late 80s (they pave the way for the early 90s) alone. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on February 26, 2015, 7:27 pm

Transformers - Movie Series
Here's the thing that got me about the Transformers movies. Their supporting characters in their own movies. The main characters are not the Autobots or the Decepticons. No it's Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, John Turturro and later Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci. They focused on the humans and not the giant alien robots in a million year civil war. -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on February 26, 2015, 6:59 pm

bradrad: welcome to the EerieVerse! It really was a great show, it lived fast, died young and left a great looking corpse.

The way they ended the show was a complete disservice to faithful watchers. When a show ran this long, why did they feel the need to bring Dixie back and make it ALL about Tad and Dixie? It was hard to watch for a long time just because it was a soap, but it definitely jumped the shark in the last 2 weeks and the final moment - meh. -- Submitted By: (vickilaw) on February 24, 2015, 9:57 am

I liked this show enough because I thought most of the guys were cute. My dad like the Corsairs. So, we watched together. I don't know a particular jump the shark moment, but even as a teenager I thought it was so odd that Robert Conrad was filmed so many times *walking away* from the camera as well as his pants always being skin tight. Conrad must have had it in his contract to have his backside filmed as often as his face. -- Submitted By: (vickilaw) on February 24, 2015, 8:56 am

Too bad they never made more of them. -- Submitted By: (bradrad) on February 23, 2015, 1:56 pm

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
I really like The Goldbergs and don't care if some of the dates are wrong. Since it's a work of fiction representing an adult's memory of things that happened 30 - 35 years ago when he was 11, how can anyone say what is wrong? Human memory is faulty. Maybe the guy honestly got some times and dates mixed up, maybe that's a part of the humor. The show is still very funny and it's a hit so a lot of people obviously like it. A renewal for season 3 is in the bag and I hope they go on for many more. Oh, I had a smother mother, too, so I feel Adam's pain. -- Submitted By: (bradrad) on February 23, 2015, 1:52 pm

I hate a cocky person who tells me something that's not true. They just cobble anything together. I know this insipid show is set in a haze, but who sets a show in a haze?! You have no business putting out a comedic period piece if you don't remember the dates of everything you mention in the show. @martymarty: I refuse to shut my brain off to enjoy a TV show.

The person who suggested a separate area for the old Jump the Shark comments has a great idea. The home page should have new comments, it's more fun for everyone that way. You could have a link right up there under the main navigation in the upper left. Not only would that settle this war going on, it would actually encourage the old guys to post their best material and get younger people interested in what they have to say. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on February 21, 2015, 12:11 pm

Really, it's a well done show. Jeff Garlin has been one of my favorite actors for a long time. He's been in some great indie films and also had recurring roles in Arrested Development and Curb Your Enthusiasm. He's perfect as the slovenly, always put upon Murray Goldberg. George Segal is Hollywood royalty, or at least he should be, he's damn funny and has the perfect edge for his role as the family patriarch. I don't get why some people get so hung up on minor inconsistencies in the timeline. It's a great, touching and funny show, not a documentary on life in 1980-something! -- Submitted By: (spacer) on February 21, 2015, 12:01 pm

This is a great, wonderful, funny and awesome show! Could it be that those who are so offended by alleged minor errors in the 80's timeline are offended by something else? I notice none of the haters of this show ever mention the fact the family is Jewish, just pretend to hate it because the Goonies came out in 1985 and the kid watching it is wearing a t-shirt design from 1986! Oh my, the horror! It's like criticizing Leonardo da Vinci because his Mona Lisa was wearing a hairstyle that was not popular at the time of the painting. If you want to knock the show because you dislike the stories or cast, fine. If you don't like it because the family is Jewish, fine, say so and be done with it. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on February 17, 2015, 7:01 am

It's strange, the station never honors their old shows. Shows I grew up with. Remember the beginnings of the network? They use to air shows that were from other countries. Of course, no one at that time knew that, this was the early to mid-80s. But those where the shows that where the building block of the networks. Shows on Nick wouldn't be around today if it wasn't for, Pin Wheels, You can't do that on Television, Danger Mouse, Today's Special, Banana Man, Mysterious Cities of Gold and Count Duckula.

DC Boned the Fish for me when in the mid-'90s they replaced longtime characters with newer younger ones in a way to reboot the series.
