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.

Cartoon Network brought back old school Looney Toons! Don't know if the network has completely boned back, but that's a big start to unboning. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 1, 2011, 9:55 am

Sorry for the upcoming long post. I feel that Cartoon Network's first major screw-up was in 2001 when they revived Dexter's Laboratory without the original creator (or part of the original staff). To me, though, this would be their only big screw-up until around 2005-ish, when they got rid of every classic cartoon that wasn't Tom and Jerry (such as Looney Tunes and Droopy). In 2006, they started airing some live action movies and stopped airing some of their older original cartoons. In early 2007, the CEO of Cartoon Network resigned in response to the Boston Bomb Scare. Shortly after, they got rid of the Fridays block, gave Toonami a major redesign, made Out of Jimmy's Head, and made Fried Dynamite. A year later, they got rid of Toonami altogether, and later made even more live action shows and the CN Real block (amazingly, some of this live action is still on). CN had other bonings, but these were it's biggest bonings to me. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on September 1, 2011, 5:35 am

Ah yes, Rob Liefeld. The mman who forever convinced me to never take comics seriously again with his utterly ludicrous even by comic standards and anatomically impossible renderings of the female form, which is his mind consisted of two legs, each bigger around than the 12-inch waist above them, with DD breasts (minimum) and arms that would make a bodybuilder envious.

There are non corporate comics that rock out, they just dont have the hype of the old Jim Lee and McFarlane Years. What's really amazing is that Liefeld commanded, and still does to a degree, attention from the comics industry. His image and non image work sucks that bad. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on August 31, 2011, 6:42 pm

Michael Richards - Celebrities
Now granted, the hecklers were being d1(k5- but I think any professional comic would tell you that's the chance you take when you're up there, and how you respond to it is very important. But I'm sure Mr. Richards had enough celebrity pull that he could have induced security to throw the bums out. However, MR made his 'World Apology Tour' immediately after the event and all I can say is from one human being to another, good luck. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 31, 2011, 10:01 am

Michael Richards - Celebrities
Michael Richards was at his funny best when he was on the early 80's sketch comedy show Fridays (on ABC). 'Spazzy' freakish weirdo characters were his specialty. He was also pretty funny on the Weird Al Yankovich vehicle 'UHF'. On Seinfeld, his Kramer character was- okay (at best). Now, maybe he was having a really bad day on that fateful night and maybe he had had just a little too much to drink before the show at the comedy club, but I lost pretty much any respect I had for him as a performer when I saw the video on that. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 31, 2011, 9:53 am

Anyone else remember this show? One of my friends introduced me to it. It was an island of goodness in a sea of suckitude on "The N". Anyway, my BTF vote goes to the episode where Lily and River Pierce (the token obnoxious jock/most popular guy in school) fall asleep together after some flimsy plot device has them together in Lily's room one night, and there's this huge drama about them having sex when literally all they did was accidentally fall asleep together.

Wheel of Fortune - TV Shows
Don't even get me started on the million wedge. Oops, too late. After some lady won it almost immediately after its introduction the producers got scared someone would win it every week and so they suddenly made it so that even if a contestant won the regular game while having it and solved the end puzzle, they still wouldn't actually get it due to it being placed in a wheel and having to be picked out by Pat at random. Are you KIDDING me?! As far as I know, nobody's won it since.

Image Comics - Random Topics
I was a naive high school student when Image was formed. I believed all the hype about creators' rights and that editors were holding back these great artists from telling great stories. Then these "rebels" go start their own company and make the dumbest, most unoriginal, over-commercialized crap comics in history. All they've got to show for it after all these years is... Spawn... and The Walking Dead has a TV show. These artists were only good when they had real writers and editors telling them what to do and couldn't handle it on their own. I hate to say it, but comics were better when the characters were corporate owned. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 30, 2011, 6:55 pm

Fear Factor - TV Shows
On the contrary, eating roaches, cods sacks, deer penis, rocky mountain oysters, etc. there is certainly a good bit of fear behind that. Everything they ate on the show is a delicacy somewhere. But could you eat it, no probably not. There would be a fear of tasting something putrid, horrid, wretched, rancid, etc. and/or the fear of putting something like this in your body period. Anyway, We used to watch this show all the time and very much enjoyed it. There were moments you thought "where/who the fu** is it that they would find this edible?" I would have liked to have seen Joe Rogan do more of the stunts as well, especially when he talked trash. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 29, 2011, 7:28 pm

This show is one of those shows I just never understand what is so popular about it. Most of the winners are just there for their 15 minutes of fame and don't even stay on top of the music charts for very long. The only thing worth watching is the pre-season auditions when the judges are putting down some of the people who really deserve it. Other than that this show is boring, Boring, BORE-ING!

That '70s Show - TV Shows
That '70s Show started off as a great retro-based sitcom much like Happy Days did. But as the run went on the show made the '70s retro references more of a background for the show's silly, irrelevant plots in the middle seasons. This show could've had a never boned moment but all the unnecessary changes doomed it. The penultimate BtF was when Topher Grace left the series after S7. The show was primarily centered around his character and when he left, part of the show went too. The 8th season could've been good (due to the fact that it gave more of the surrounding cast members more to work with) but thanks to the Randy character the 8th season was kind of wishy-washy on and off. And the episode where they had Donna and Randy making out in Eric's old bedroom was just classless. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 29, 2011, 11:27 am

Doug - TV Shows
The Nick version of Doug was great! After Nick canned it and ABC/Disney picked up the show for new episodes, at first I was excited about it but then looking back it at now, I can plainly see why the Disney version stunk so badly and why Billy West (the original voice of Doug on the Nick version) greatly detested Disney's Doug. Advancing the kids from like 5th grade to Junior High, Doug gets a little sister in Dirtbike (whom, IMO didn't mind much) but the other changes were unnecessary (i.e. Patti stops wearing the skirts and even cut her hair short, Roger goes from a bully living in the slums who sometimes you can't help but sorry for at times to his and his family winning the lottery and living rich and becomes far less of the bully that he was on the Nick version, Connie went from a chubby cute girl to a somewhat stuck-up skinny girl, Mr. Dink's wife becomes mayor, etc., etc., etc.). -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 29, 2011, 10:37 am

Double Dare - TV Shows
Marc Summers's version was the quintessential kids game show and its the longest-running kids game show for a reason. It's popularity also help put Nickelodeon on the map. When it came back in 2000 as Double Dare 2000, the show was the same as the Family Double Dare Version but there were a few problems. The 1st and obvious one was host Jason Harris. He was waaaaaay too hyper and over-the-top and the 2nd glaring problem was the Triple Dare Challenge in Round 2, which ate up a lot of game-playing time due to Jason Harris's tedious over-explaining the Triple Dare Challenge rules. Otherwise this truly is not only one of the very best kids' game shows of all-time but one of the best game shows produced, period. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 28, 2011, 10:26 pm

Hated this show which had the premise of this obnoxious bully dumping on all around him yet whom never got called on it-much less punished for it. I also hated the condescending 'tude that the TV critics/netword suits had that said that if one did NOT like it, it meant we weren't 'deep' enough to 'get' it- and, of course they cried bloody murder when it got cancelled in a very short time due to low ratings.

Family Feud - TV Shows
Family Feud Hosts From Best To Worst: 1.) Richard Dawson: By far and away the best host of the program. He had the wit, charm, sense of humor and personality to be the best host of the show. Sure, his monologues got long, some people didn't like the kissing (I did), and he became a bit of a jerk, but I still think he was the best host of the show and still is what people mostly think of when they think of the show. 2.) Ray Combs: Funny and energetic, Ray did a good job at taking over the huge shoes of Dawson. However, Ray always seemed to be in a hurry and just didn't have quite the charm of Dawson. Still, very sad ending to his life and career. 3.) Steve Harvey: Funny and one who isn't afraid to throw zingers, Steve is up and down. Some episodes he seems energetic, other times he seems bored. His inconsistency in attitude is probably what bugs me the most about him. 4.) John O'Hurley: Always seemed to be in high spirits, John isn't one that was much of a joker cracker or zinger thrower. Instead, he was one for facial expressions. I think he did pretty good, but just seemed a bit too suave and formal for Family Feud. I think he would have fit better on a show like Price is Right or Let's Make a Deal. 5.) Richard Karn: Bland and cheesy. Some people like him, but I never did. He's too vanilla and he bugs me with his over enthusiasm about everything ("I'm tripling the points!") Someone funny, charming and witty needs to host Feud. Karn was none of these things. 6.) Louie Anderson: Ugh... -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 28, 2011, 5:18 pm

National Basketball Association (NBA) - Random Topics
Biggest way you can tell that the NFL is vastly more popular than the NBA: NFL lockout was talked about EVERY DAY between the time it started to the time it ended. All sports media seemed to at least touch on it while it was happening and we were consistently given updates, even when there really wasn't anything to update. The NBA lockout I've heard very little on and seem to have no updates. I highly doubt the season will start on time and almost wonder if there will be a season at all. I think it's time for David Stern to step down. It's a little harder to look like "the greatest commissioner in major league sports" as some pundits like to call him when you aren't riding the coat tails of Magic, Bird and MJ anymore. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 28, 2011, 3:04 am

LeBron James - Celebrities
For the 12 people that voted for "Never Boned" must either be hackers or 12 die-hard LeBron worshippers. I'm sorry but IMO this guy is flawed. And he's shown some arrogance alright. Having his agents confiscating tapes of a kid out-performing him at a Nike basketball event is strike one. Going to the basket and dunking countless times, only to show inconsistencies in his shooting game (especially with clutch jump-shots in crunch time), disappearing in the 4th quarter in games that truly matter and then when things don't go his way goes and blames everyone but himself for his failures and sulking about it (see the end of the 2010 East Finals in Game 5 in Cleveland v. Boston) is strike two. The penultimate icing on the cake was the "Decision Debacle" when LeBron held the NBA and the world in the perverbial chokehold during the 2010 NBA Finals on ESPN, on national TV by wasting everyone's time about the way he made the decision to take his talents to Miami. Granted he has the right to leave his team but to do it on national TV, that showed how much of a d*ck move that really was. And all the hype and hoopla about how him and the Heat were making this party and campaigning about how they're gonna win like what 4, 5, 6 rings or something like that? 1st off, LeBron hasn't even won a damn ring, let alone any MVP's. And when it came to the 2011 NBA Finals, Dallas exposed LeBron and the Heat's flaws. And to think people like ESPN overhype him as the next Michael Jordan? Earth to LeBron, until you ACTUALLY lead a team and WIN A RING (let alone 6 RINGS) you aren't even in the same league or in the same class as Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan stayed with his team and helped make his surrounding cast play better. He didn't bail and jump ship, let alone announce on national TV to go play with Larry Bird or Magic Johnson or even worse: his arch-rivals in The Pistons (whom up until 1991 always beat Jordan in the playoffs) and it took Jordan 7 years to finally win his ring, with the Bulls on top of that. Bob Costas said it best: "There will NEVER BE another Michael Jordan." -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 27, 2011, 9:16 pm

King, you couldn't be more right about this. All these themed channels have gotten further and further from their respective programming. As for GSN, I don't understand why improvaganza is even an option on this show. It's not a game show! I hope it isn't because Drew hosts PIR, that shouldn't even matter. I don't even bother with anything Springer does. Lingo being hosted by Bill Engvall is very ridiculous. Something tells me he's not exactly a master wordsman. (Kind of like how Foxworthy probably isn't smarter than a 5th grader.) I don't dislike him, out of all the Blue Collar guys Ron White and Bill are the better. Chuck was just the man for the job on that show. Who is going to replace Alex Trebek when he's done with Jeopardy? Oh, I know! Jimmy Kimmel! No, Carrot Top!

Game Show Network (GSN) - Random Topics
Another cable channel that lost its way. I remember as recent as 2006 when this was still a good cable network. Sure, by that point Price is Right was long off the channel, but it still had mostly classic shows and some really good originals like Russian Roulette. Now this channel has Baggage, which is one of the most disgusting programs I've ever seen. Jerry Springer and his "go for shock value" schtick is so 1997. If that sounds bad, you also have Wendy Williams and her trash bag dating show, Drew Carey and a watered down version of Whose Line called Improv-A-Ganza, overplayed reruns of Deal or No Deal, Lingo sans Chuck Woolrey, now hosted by redneck Bill Engvall and it plays up his perverted jokes, very few classics still on, and much more. This channel is a mess. I know the budget has been cut drastically and you can tell. The production values of the shows are about one level above public access and it's mostly just rerunning four programs in one day instead of a variety of programs. The last time I really liked the channel was when I wrote my last review of it, which was May 2010. It wasn't at its best, but it was still somewhat good. Now? I only can somewhat tolerate Lingo.

I hear what you're saying Dolfan, but you must understand I have a rather dark and almost inconsistently off-the-wall sense of humor (and it even sometimes borders on the juvenile, :)) -Honestly, I can't really comment on 'Hot In Cleveland' because I just don't watch it. Basically, because I think the whole premise of the show seems to be built around 'Betty White being raunchy' and for me, that would get old really fast. Amending what I said earlier, the whole bit was "funny and refreshing" WHEN it was sudden and new particularly when she did it on SNL (and I don't want to hear about how much "SNL sucks now..." I know, I know that's another subject altogether) because it was so - in a word- unexpected (I mean, that's what makes the punchline of a joke so funny, it's typically unexpected). However, I would say that at this point the 'joke' has gotten a bit stale now, and now that Betty white has gone in that unexpected direction, had her fun and infused her career with new life- perhaps she should cool it a little with the Jr. High humor and use her talents (and new found fame) to focus on more worthy efforts. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 26, 2011, 10:57 am

Oh! how funny? I forgot about this show! I use to watch this, basically because of Topanga. (woof, aging hasn't worked out for her like it has elder Savage's tv girlfriend, Winnie Cooper.) I will admit when they were in Jr. High, the show was better. The High School years were tolerable. But the College years, not even close to being worth watching. Does anyone else remember Ethan Suplee on this show? He's had a pretty decent career since. The only one of the "kids" that has. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 25, 2011, 8:02 pm

I agree with markle that George Gray was the more superior host. I still was not a huge fan of this show, but he went with the sarcastic comedian schtick instead of the fake tough guy schtick. With him, it came across more natural than Anne Robinson's style. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 25, 2011, 7:25 pm

Kingbk, that's pretty much the same way I feel about Simmons! Why is someone his age so obsessed with today's garbage pop culture anyway? And now he's got two kids to indoctrinate into it, that's frightening.

I remember in the 80s when every adult around seemed to just *know* rock music was "Satanic". Well, rappers make rockers look like choirboys.

I have never found people over 40 acting like they're back in junior high to be "refreshing". With age should come wisdom. It's pathetic that people over 40 now feel they absolutely *must* act that way in order to have any fun at all. I feel very strongly about this.

Weakest Link, The - TV Shows
This WWtbaM clone started off as a fun show but as the weeks went on the catchphrase and Anne Robinson's tough chick persona was waning fast. But the penultimate BtF moment was when they started doing waaaaaaaaay too many celebrity editions on the NBC version. The George Gray syndicated version was a little better, albeit w/ cheaper stakes (a maximum of $75,000 and later upped to $100,000 in the 2nd syndie season) and somewhat easier (due to the reduction from 8 to 6 players and 5 to 3 questions for each player in the final round) and IMO George Gray's hosting was more hilarious than it was with Anne. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 25, 2011, 6:05 pm

Green Hornet,The - TV Shows
Never mind the movie, the original TV show was a true arse-kicking machine with Van Williams playing Britt Reed/Green Hornet and the late great martial artist Bruce Lee (in what was one of his 1st American TV exposures) did a superb job playing Kato. Unlike the campiness of the 1960s Batman TV series, Green Hornet had that much darker serious badass tone and IMO GH and Kato would've kicked Batman and Robin's arses. Plus, I also enjoyed their car the Black Beauty as well. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 25, 2011, 5:52 pm

I like Bill Simmons as a writer for the most part. His pop culture references get annoying, but he knows his sports. I don't like him on TV. I find him boring and annoying. However, ESPN has a hard-on for him, so besides getting his own column, his own website and his own podcast, he now substitutes on shows and sometimes fills in for NBA games. Like I said earlier, some people just need to stick to writing and he's one of those people. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 25, 2011, 5:14 pm

Caught a few reruns... wow my taste in TV was poor as a kid. This show was so cheesy and bad. I can't believe I liked it so much as a kid. I have to admit the earlier episodes were better. I especially liked it better when Shawn was the goof ball and comic relief. They later switch it so Eric becomes the comic relief and Shawn becomes this seriously affected teenager. I didn't like the show as much once this switch was made. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 25, 2011, 5:09 pm

Pretentious? Yes. Arrogant? For Sure. Talented? Of Course. Do I Like Them? Yeah. Prog rock in the 70s is basically what indie/emo rock is today, except it is much more rich and not as depressing. ELP had some great songs, but when prog rock died in the late 70s, they couldn't transform with the times unlike their contemporaries Genesis and Yes. Still, Karn Evil 9 and From the Beginning are always treats to hear on the radio. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 25, 2011, 5:00 pm

Betty White - Celebrities
I think the appeal of Betty White at this point in her career is the fact that she's sort of this living contradiction. She has all the outward appearances and mannerisms of a sweet grandmotherly type lady and then- BOOM- we get blindsided by her when she busts out a raunchy joke. It does seem to be reaching the boning point. For awhile, I had to admit that it was refreshing and amusing to see a lady her age cutting loose and having some no-holds-barred fun with the third act of her career. But this whole Betty White mania is beginning to get a wee bit old now. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 25, 2011, 10:07 am

Yeah. Pretty much grew up watching all the gameshow reruns (especially Pyramid and Press Your Luck) that would air on USA Network during the afternoons in the early-mid 90's, and watched a ton of GSN before they got enamored into this newer crap they put on their channel. I would also go on the GSN forums a ton a while back, so thats how I learned a bunch about the ins and outs of game shows. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on August 24, 2011, 9:35 pm

I vaguely remember the Who is Herb ads, and then seeing that he had been revealed in a human interest story on the news. I was kind of disappointed that after all the build-up, he just looked like a stereotypical nerd. I don't remember any ads with him in them. My memories of the original Burger King are even vaguer, though I remember him playing basketball once and having a magic ring. They really should bring that guy back.

One of the better news programs out there. I do know it's heavily edited (a friend of mine who worked production on the show confirmed that for me), but when I catch it I always find it interesting. However, I think it's boned for two reasons. 1.) Ed Bradley, one of the better reporters on the show, died. 2.) Mike Wallace, Mr. 60 Minutes himself, retiring. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 23, 2011, 7:25 pm

Pardon the Interruption - TV Shows
The show has decreased in quality over the years. I think it happened when Tony and Michael left The Washington Post to work for ESPN full time. The show was at its best when they were at ESPN only to do the show. They were still writers who happened to do a TV show. After a few years, Tony first left the paper followed by Michael. Now they are TV stars who happen to (seldom) write. Not all writers are meant to be TV stars. I think celebrity has kind of gone to their heads, more so Tony than Michael, but they aren't quite the same as before. Not as much edge to the arguments, not as much effort in the show, too many episodes with them being in separate locations, too many substitute hosts (Bill Simmons is not good on TV, ESPN is pimping him out way too much), too into pop culture, too "disneyized" like most ESPN is anymore. It's just not the same. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on August 23, 2011, 6:38 pm

Feminism - Random Topics
One annoying feminism thing is how women complain about making less money on average. For a long time I wondered why this was. Why would employers pay women that are doing the same job and have the same qualifications less money? How could they legally get away with it? Only recently, I read an article (written by a woman btw) that called people on this. It mentioned how career choices are much more for a factor in this then unequal pay (which in my opinion, any degree of is not acceptable). I remember the same article also decrying a woman that balked at male students in need of assistance, the woman saying that 'they'll just make more anyway, so what's the point?' Again, that seemed like one of those attitudes that might have had a point in the 1950s, but in more modern times seems bitter and outright cruel. I also acknowledge that it comes from both sides. There are men out there that have an attitude about equal rights and regard women in such a way that one might end up wondering if said men have travelled forward in time from the 50s or were in suspended animation and only just woke up. As for one point that's not really feminism but is still interesting. In Firefox, the dictionary has the word misogyny but not the word misandry. A minor thing but still interesting. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on August 23, 2011, 3:07 pm

Anyone else remember Herb the Nerd from '85 to '86? It seemed someone got the bright idea of having a campaign in which they'd found out the very last person in the US who had never had a Burger King burger was this glasses-wearing, white socked nerd who they then had a 'Where's Herb' campaign to see if patrons could FIND him and give them big prizes. Long-short is he got found, THEN they made him the SPOKESMAN but this bombed when folks decided that they didn't want to eat what Herb had. Anyway, even HERB was better than the Plastic Faced King.

Wait Till Your Father Gets Home - TV Shows
I absolutely loved this show when I was a child. Harry Boyle, the long-suffering father, was the only charachter with an ounce of sense. His wife, Irma and kids Chet, Alice and Jaime as well as neighbors Ralph and Sgt. Whitaker were hilarious with their own brand of logic in whatever circumstanses the episodes dealt with. The only drawback is that the show dates itself (i.e. inflation, energy crisis and references to communist China and Russia all early 1970s) but that wasn't enough to make this bone the fish as it still makes the later generations laugh. -- Submitted By: (gagedesoto) on August 23, 2011, 12:55 pm

I wonder if someone could comment as to the nature of Fox News's news reports and not Fox's pundents. As far as the pundents go I've never seen any discussions that were fair and balanced. The biggest thing I slam fox for is the obnoxious behavior of people like O'Reilly, Hannity, and Beck. Interestingly Keith Olberman has left (been fired from?) MSNBC and is now with Current TV. Perhaps this means that MSNBC has cleaned up a bit and is less obnoxious than Fox? I'd like to hear your thoughts. -- Submitted By: (wilddrawfour) on August 23, 2011, 11:46 am

Jay Leno - Celebrities
At first I though Jay Leno was a genuinely nice enough guy. But once NBC made him the heir to the throne for "The Tonight Show" from Johnny Carson, this was the beginning of some anti-Leno sentiment and the Leno/Letterman feud. Hell, even the late Johnny Carson himself refused to even appear on any episodes of Leno's Tonight Show. Flash-forward from 18 years after Leno 1st took over from Carson to 2010 and we have the Leno/Conan fiasco, aka the Tonight Show Fiasco II. The mess NBC created during this fiasco w/ the Conan and Leno's Frankenstein of a primetime show ("The Jay Leno Show") further made Leno despised even more than he was in '92 and another embarassment notch for NBC. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 22, 2011, 4:50 pm
