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.

Baretta - TV Shows
A quick visit to Wikipedia gave me the surprising news that Baretta was a retooling of the earlier series Toma. I liked Toma - alot - and was sorry when it was discontinued after only one season. I had no idea the much tamer - and frankly much stupider - Baretta was a more family-friendly repackaging of Toma. And with all due respect to Fletch000, whose tastes are often fairly close to mine, no, I don't have to admit that Baretta was "one of the best shows on TV from 1975 to 1978", or even one of the best cop shows. After all, that was the era of Starsky & Hutch, Rockford Files, Streets of San Francisco, Hawaii Five-O, The Rookies, and Kojak. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 21, 2011, 5:05 am

Deadliest Catch - TV Shows
Okay, we get it: Commercial deep-sea fishing in northern latitudes is dangerous work. As a previous poster said, a documentary would have been enough to drive home the point. Fashioning a series out of the concept is just cheap sensationalism. Why are people tuning in to this program week after week? In the hope of seeing someone get swept overboard? If there were a little variety from one episode to the next, I could maybe understand the appeal. But each episode is the same, and the fishermen are not nearly colorful and entertaining enough to make up for that. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 21, 2011, 4:45 am

Apprentice, The - TV Shows
There would have been something deeply incongruous about a President Donald Trump overseeing our war against Al Qaeda after having given the world so many years of this program - this paragon of cultural pollution - that has helped radical Islamists make the case that America's cultural exports are defiling the planet. How Trump can live with himself is beyond me. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 21, 2011, 4:35 am

Meet the Parents - Movie Series
If this series did not bone with Meet the Fockers (despite great efforts from Hoffman, DeNiro and Stresiand), it certainly has not got any reminants of a skeleton with Little Fockers. That movie managed to ruin close to all of its jokes by showing how the set up was going to occur (for example, they showed one of the little kids walking towards a door to open it to walk in on DeNiro and Stiller in an embarassing situation - I forget what it was though - thus screwing up the vital spontaneousness of the "comedy"). The actors all looked aged, bored and over it. Not that I was that big a fan of the first, but it at least seemed like they cared and should have left it at that stand alone film. Semi-decent first, sloppy seconds and unidentifiable ........... something worse third. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 21, 2011, 1:07 am

I like the guy too. His songs have alot of heart. (Well, I can't speak for the stuff after about 1983.) My favorite album is The Nylon Curtain.

Billy Joel - Music Groups
Huge Billy Joel fan. Love his music. Have pretty much all his albums. His hits are great, but some of his better songs are the regular songs on his albums. As a person I know he has his flaws (multiple marriages, addictions, multiple car accidents, etc.), but I still love his music and think he seems like a pretty good guy. Went to his concert in Las Vegas with my wife about two years ago. I think we were the youngest ones there, but still was awesome to see him live.

Arnold Schwarzenegger - Celebrities
I don't disagree with you, Robert. However; this sort of thing is nothing new- and let's not deride Maria Shriver in this. The US Civil War diarist Mary Chestnut put it well, "every lady tells you who is the father of all the [biracial] children in everybody's household, but those in her own, she seems to think drop from the clouds or pretends so to think." Yep, none so blind as those who don't want to see. Moreover it's rather sad that, in terminating himself, he put her and all the kids [including the employee's] through unwanted and undeserved scrutiny . And, while US American employees have infinitely more rights and options than do slaves[how I wish I could say slavery is entirely past tense in this world], it would be next to impoossible to imagine this extramarital relationship to have been a partnership of equals. Lastly, I can't say I was ever a fan of his. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 20, 2011, 12:39 pm

He's a talented man, but sometimes he can be a bit much for me. I think he actually does a great job as a dramatic actor and I also think his stand-up comedy is very funny as well.

I agree with the comments about the do-gooder groups forcing the watering-down of Saturday morning TV fare. That actually started in the late '60s.

Kirk Cameron - Celebrities
Well, Lewis and Tolkien were also geniuses; each had an intellect best described as astonishing. Both the Narnia and Lord of the Rings series draw from their respective authors' very deep understanding and command of all sorts of fields - history and linguistics and comparative mythology and literary theory - as well as an impressive understanding of what makes humans think and behave as they do. (And of course both Tolkien and Lewis were masters of elegant and soaring prose.) Neither Tim LaHaye nor his coauthor Jerry Jenkins - nor Kirk Cameron, for that matter - appears to have more than an average IQ, if that, and little awareness of anything beyond their narrow dogmatism. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 20, 2011, 1:57 am

Obesity - Random Topics
I'm going to have to disagree with the majority here. Any time I go into public I see tons of morbidly obese people waddling around. The USA is said to be the fattest nation on earth. Obviously Americans are incapable of making dietary decisions on their own. The question of why Americans are so fat also needs to be answered. I have heard that "Americans are lazy" explanation and just don't buy it; I don't think our lifestyle is that much different that Europe. Personally speaking, I have no idea about nutrition and I suspect many others in my age group are the same. That's because they stopped teaching nutrition entirely in my schools sometime in the '80s to make room for AIDS/Safe Sex and Drug Education programs. There are also all sorts of weird genetically modified foods here and crap like high fructose corn syrup that are banned in other countries. All this needs to be studied and perhaps certain kinds of foods and oils need to be banned outright. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 19, 2011, 8:18 pm

Bill Clinton - Celebrities
I was not "defending France"; I was pointing out that relying on stereotypes and cliches as sources for your opinions - rather than actual knowledge - is the sort of thing easily-leed fools do. Nor would I ever vote "Never boned" on this Clinton page. I think he was an average president but not such a great human being. Like Nixon, he was a combination of a high IQ and a low character. He had a host of psychoses - I could give you about a dozen off the top of my head - and he was morally unfit for any of the offices he held. But he wasn't some flaming commie -let alone murderer - as you rightwingers were so insistent on portraying him as when he was president. And he proved able and willing to work with the Gingrich Congress on a number of issues. (His core ideology was not far-left, it was "me first", and that set him apart from the true believers like Ted Kennedy.) All you conservatives are required by your ideology (and its gurus) to demonize the guy and deny that he ever did anything positive in his life. Fine, I get it: I know how it works when you attach yourself to a sociopolitical doctrine that demands conformity of thought and speech. Your opposite numbers on the idiot left have the same requirements regarding George Bush (and Ronald Reagan), and they are no less slavishly loyal to the demands of their ideology to parrot the party line than you are to yours. And I have zero doubt that if someone had serially voted 8000 times on this page for "Boned from birth", you would not be sniveling about the dishonesty of serial voting. I respect those of you who are politically moderate and don't have any use for Clinton, because you arrived at your conclusions free of preconceived bias. I have very little respect for those of you who are from the political right and who don't have any use for anyone who isn't (and whose opinion of Clinton is therefore a product of your political dogmatism rather than of independent thought), because you are nothing more than tools. (And all through the Bush years I said the same thing to leftwingers who hated Bush. They called me a thinly-disguised rightwinger, and I'm sure some of you mutts would like to dismiss me as a thinly-disguised leftwinger. I don't give two shits if you do.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 19, 2011, 8:15 pm

Kirk Cameron - Celebrities
C.S. Lewis was a Christian, and he didn't make "The Chronicles of Narnia" series lame. J. R. R. Tolkien was a devout Catholic, and he didn't make "The Lord of the Rings" series lame. Quite the opposite, LOTR is one of the greatest literary masterpieces of all time. It's possible to be a Christian and write good stories. Kirk Cameron should have taken lessons from these two. And Left Behind sounds bad, from what people here are saying. Anti-Catholic and antisemitic propaganda? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 19, 2011, 11:31 am

Jennifer Aniston - Celebrities
Here's another case where I don't understand why a person is trashed with such enthusiasm. Is Ms Aniston the worst actor who ever lived? Is she known to be an unusually spiteful person? Does she vomit her political opinions all over us every chance she gets? Does she choose roles in movies that are calculated to spit in the faces of large segments of society? Answers: No, no, no and no. Therefore, she has done nothing at all to earn my ire. And I suspect that if some of you looked at yourselves a little more closely, you'd find that she hasn't done much to earn yours either.

Glee - TV Shows
If there is anything in this world capable of turning me into a homophobe, it's this program. It is as alien to my TV and musical taste as a show can possibly be, yet I would be courting trouble if I were to admit this in certain public settings. (Rather like the Seinfeld episode where Kramer declines to wear the AIDS ribbon and gets tormented for it.) Look at the flak bands have gotten for expressing a lack of interest in having their music played on the show; they've practically been made out to be Nazis. The degree to which Glee is hyped is very unsettling - but I suspect it's more a matter of heterosexual guilt, and the mad urge to overcompensate for it, than anything else. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 18, 2011, 8:02 pm

John Mellencamp - Celebrities
In the hiearchy of "Heartland rockers" (which I always found ironic since Bruce Springsteen is based in Jersey, about as far from the Heartland as you can get), John Mellencamp was always in the lower part of it. That doesn't mean I dislike his music. I don't. I just don't have the same enjoyment of it that I do say Bruce Springsteen or Bob Seger. I just find myself listening to them more often and enjoying them more than I do John Mellencamp. I will give him credit for his outreach on rural flight. Being formally from the Midwest, I know that is a definite issue with more young people ditching that part of the country for one of the coasts or the sunbelt. I also liked when Billy Joel talked about how Mellencamp plays football for fun when JM was inducted into the Hall of Fame. The thought of JM and Billy Joel playing football for some reason cracks me up. I guess I just don't picture middle-aged men like these two doing that in their spare time. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 18, 2011, 3:52 pm

I'll keep my opinion of Kirk Cameron to myself - making fun of young folks who take up a religious cause isn't my bag - but Tim LaHaye (the author of the books) is a slobbering old fool. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 18, 2011, 11:49 am

I tried watching it a few times thinking it was good showing one shadow side of addiction which is that, whether the addictions or legal or not, addictions impact far more folks than the just the addicts themselves. However; too many times, they let havoc get wreaked for shock value+ratings without ANY attempts made to protect innocent parties. There was one episode in which a party got thrown late at night at some pad with tiny children running around- and drugs were being DEALT right in front of them. Oh, yeah, they obscured the toddlers' faces but NOTHING was mentioned on screen[ or on the black screen] about getting those poor kids out of that horrific situation! That was IT for me. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 18, 2011, 8:46 am

James Cameron - Celebrities
Yeah, I guess one could say that James Cameron is the Cecil B. DeMille of the New Millenium. Oh, yeah, Mr. DeMille was ALSO quite the egomaniac who thought he was far more talented and insightful than he was. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 18, 2011, 8:33 am

Nip/Tuck - TV Shows
For me it started with The Carver but there was still the rest of the show that was going ok. It became offical when they moved to L.A, from there it lost what little substance it had and it just became about topping last weeks crazy stunt which would have been ok had there still been something to care about storyline and character wise. -- Submitted By: (terror) on May 18, 2011, 8:30 am

John Mellencamp - Celebrities
Soggy, All your kudos of my past posts makes me a bit hesitant to have to disagree with you here [and it's nothing personal] but I have to disagree. I know he hasn't had a hit in a good decade but I always liked "Jack+Diane" and thought "R.O.C.K. in the USA" did an excellent job capturing how early 1960's teens of different backgrounds got together through a shared love of making music! Also, he's been very helpful to try to keep family run farms a way of life in this country so that in itself I give high marks for! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 18, 2011, 8:29 am

Flintstones, The - TV Shows
So is this going to be a brand-new cartoon with Seth McFarlane voicing it OR will it be live action. Robert, my guess is that shanequia may have not bothered with the "Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show" -and I wouldn't blame her in the least. I wish I'd never seen it. BTW, where has shanequia been? I miss her! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 18, 2011, 8:25 am

Kirk Cameron - Celebrities
Just saw the comment on Left Behind. Part of me wants to watch this for the pure over the top insanity of these religious propaganda movie pieces. What happens to the Jews and Catholics by the way? Do they all die? -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 18, 2011, 7:56 am

Left Behind - Movie Series
The books were undeniably popular, but if you're not an evangelical Christian with low literary standards, you'll probably find them poorly written. And if you ARE a Christian with a fair understanding of Biblical doctrine, you'll probably find alot of non-canonical (and even heretical) stuff in the books. If you're Catholic or Jewish, you'll probably be offended by the negative portrayal of your faith. I'd imagine the same applies to the movies, which have the added weakness - so I've heard - of being very badly produced (and employing dreadful special effects). -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 18, 2011, 2:51 am

Looks like I'm the odd man out, because I like the guy. Sure, most of his portrayals are pretty broad, but so what? Anyone who can make me laugh is worth his weight in platinum, so I'm not about to disrespect this guy. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 18, 2011, 2:14 am

The so-called "poor man's Springsteen" never floated my boat. Nor has he had a decent-selling album in at least ten years. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 18, 2011, 2:00 am

Jim Belushi - Celebrities
How did he cash in on his brother's fame? He was a Second City alumnus with a number of TV appearances and a couple of movies under his belt at the time of John's death. Was it his fault that he continued to be offered TV and movie roles? What was he supposed to do? "Hey, thanks for these nice offers but I'm going to get out of the acting business altogether - maybe become a plumber or a cabbie - so nobody will think I'm trying to ride my dead brother's coattails." Life goes on, and there was nothing wrong with the guy continuing to pursue his chosen career. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 18, 2011, 1:47 am

Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers - TV Shows
I always wondered why Disney made this instead of a Rescuers TV show. I guess they probably didn't want to pay Margery Sharp royalties. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 18, 2011, 12:01 am

DuckTales - TV Shows
Second season. Looking at the ending credits, apparently the entire creative staff changed hands. Animation was outsourced to Taiwan and it showed. The writing was weak, standard kids cartoon stuff instead of the wittier writing of the first classic season. And as for Bubba Duck and Gizmoduck... they would have been OK had they only been in one or two episodes, but EVERY EPISODE of season two had to be either a Bubba Duck or Gizmoduck episode. Scrooge and the gang were practically demoted to supporting characters. I actually liked Gizmoduck when he would guest star on Darkwing Duck. I guess he fit into the superhero world of that show better than the DuckTales world. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 17, 2011, 11:55 pm

Dragonball Z - TV Shows
Goku had literally become more powerful than God at the very start of this show. Where do you go from there? Well, pull more villains out of your ass and say that this one is way more powerful than the last one! The filler was unbearable; fortunately with DVD you can just skip over a lot of that easily. That being said, I enjoyed it up until the "Saiyaman" saga ended. Then Toriyama totally dropped the ball after that. Gohan was built up to be this great hero throughout the entire Z series and then it never happens. Ridiculous gimmicks like Fusion, Super Saian 3, etc. Unbelievable villain Majin Buu, who was really just a weak ripoff of Piccolo Sr, right down to the genie motif. I noticed when they did the reedited "Kai" version recently they left out the Buu Saga. Probably for the best. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 17, 2011, 11:43 pm

Dragon Ball - TV Shows
I'm going to vote "Never boned" for the pre-"Z" Dragonball. It's a classic, was a lot of fun, and never took itself too seriously. Unfortunately most Americans seem to prefer its overhyped, over-powered sequel, "Z" and aren't even familiar with the great show that started it all. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 17, 2011, 11:31 pm

Several directors are perfectionists, although James Cameron is definitely one of the bigger ones who ranks up there with Stanley Kubrick. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on May 17, 2011, 8:15 pm

Family Feud - TV Shows
Heads must have rolled with this. How this even made it on the air and past the editing process is beyond me. I thought they would throw out the question, start over with a new question, and continue the game. I hope the family that got screwed over was invited back for a second chance or compensated somehow. And anyone calling Steve Harvey a racist and claiming that he had an agenda need to just shut the hell up now. Mistakes happen, just kind of odd how far this mistake got before being corrected. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 17, 2011, 4:33 pm

Flintstones, The - TV Shows
By the way, in response to Shanequia: yes, there have been black people in Bedrock, but only for the spinoff (Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm) and the movies. I recently saw part of the movie, Hollyrock-a-bye baby, and there were black characters in it, one of whom was the doctor. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 17, 2011, 3:16 pm

Problem Solverz, The - TV Shows
I saw part of an episode one day. The horrid artwork is vomit-inducing. They could literally put the syrup of Ipecac companies out of business with this thing, and I'm not exaggerating: this is the ugliest, most poorly-drawn cartoon I've ever seen in my life. The characters have less expression than Sears mannequins, and one looks like a turd with a nose. How did this garbage get on the air? Did someone know a hacker and threaten to destroy Cartoon Network unless this monstrosity was allowed to air? These people aren't cartoonists, they just puke onto a sheet of paper and congratulate themselves for completing an entire series. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 17, 2011, 3:14 pm

Avatar - Movie Series
One might also call the film racist, or at least condescending toward nonwhites, since it depicts a white guy as the noble aliens' savior. (Just like Dances With Wolves, with which it's been compared.) One wonders if Cameron had even considered any nonwhite actors to play the male lead. If he didn't, what does that tell us? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 17, 2011, 3:07 pm

James Cameron - Celebrities
James Cameron is a perfectionist. He gave Hell to the people working on Titanic because their work failed to meet his high expectations. I've heard he treats people like garbage if he's got nothing to lose from them. He has a reputation of being "a nightmare to work with" and has a "flaming temper". I can understand wanting a film to be the best it can be, but there's no reason to treat people so poorly. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 17, 2011, 2:22 pm

Metallica - Music Groups
Metallica is synonymous with "selling out", when it comes to my friends. Speaking of copyrights, isn't it ironic how they once encouraged people to copy and bootleg their works, then turned around and sued when Napster did just that? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 17, 2011, 2:16 pm

Avatar - Movie Series
SPOILER ALERT!! ----- SPOILER ALERT! ----- I never really watched Avatar, just bits of the movie here and there. But it's the ending that got me. After the Marines lose, Jake narrates: "The aliens went home to their dying planet and only a few were chosen to remain." So in other words, the Earth is doomed. And with the Earth doomed, it's not just those evil humans who will die out, but all plant and animal life as well. And why did the enemies have to be Marines? Why couldn't it be some other alien race bent on destroying Pandora in the name of conquest? What's so important about Hometree that the Na'vi would rather let the humans die out that get the Unobtanium to save their home? I'm not trying to be political here, but casting Marines as villains sends a very powerful message. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 17, 2011, 1:47 pm
