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.

Paula Abdul - Celebrities
I used to think she was cute but hated her syrupy sweet voice and lyrics. I was so jealous of Keanu Reeves in that Rush Rush video. She was not as pretty once she lost weight. I even remember when In Living Color made fun of her in that Start of a New Day video. I still watch her early videos, including Opposites Attract, without the sound on. She's still beautiful nowadays, but she had a nice body in the late 80s and most of the early 90s. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 9:49 pm

Prince - Music Groups
Boned with Cherry Moon, but I loved some of the titles off his Graffiti Bridge (horrible movie) soundtrack. There's thieves in the temple, tonight. My father and I were big fans for time. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 9:42 pm

Warrant - Music Groups
I'm not a fan of hair metal, but I'll never forget seeing the video to Cherry Pie on MTV in 1990. I forgot Warrant was even a hair metal band after seeing that video. Warrant boned with the third album because they lost their sound. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 9:39 pm

Nirvana - Music Groups
Hair metal fans seemed to really have distaste for Nirvana. I've heard everything from Nerdvana to Get on My Nervesvana. My introduction to them was when my classmates were passing around Nevermind in May of 92. I was never a fan, but I knew of them. With that said, Nirvana boned with that song, Rape Me. I understand where they were coming from, but try telling anyone that you're listening to Rape Me and adults over the age of 41 will look at you funny. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 9:32 pm

Whitney Houston - Music Groups
Whitney Houston was gorgeous in the late 80s and for most of the 90s. Her second and third albums were never as great as the first. She never boned the fish. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 9:22 pm

And then a fish was boned and had no free will to carry on. Radio stations played Hero to death. I loathe that song. She boned with that single alone. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 9:16 pm

In Living Color - TV Shows
I don't know which one was funnier on this show, Keenan or Damon? Damon was THE show for me back in the early 90s. Now as I look at it, I love Keenan as the head detective. Damon was Homey the Clown, and who can forget his catchphrases? Damon and Keenan both have likeable faces. Once they both left, the show went downhill. This show launched so many careers. I wouldn't even know of Jamie Foxx if not for his stint as Wanda. When Marlon became cast member, the dynamic of the show changed quite a bit. Damon was still on the show, so I didn't notice anything. Once they lost most of the original cast, the fish was served with slaw. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 8:59 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
Believe me, this show was the business in the 1980s. There were exit stage rights, new kids in town, puberties and unbelievable facts. The Cosby Show first boned when another Cosby kid (Sondra) was added. Cosby said they only had four children in the beginning. Then, over time, new characters like Elvin and Cockaroach were added. Cosby went through his black consciousness phase and brought Denise to Hillman. Because of the actors hair, Cockaroach was no longer on the show. The only one with steady friendships on there was Rudy. Rudy never hit it off with Bud, which was a disappointment for all. How were Cosby's parents still alive? How many grandparents were on that show?! The worst change to happen to the show was Lisa Bonet going on to star on A Different World. The show fell apart after that. Sandra became a huge word that rhymes with witch. Theo wasn't as lovable after he hit puberty. His charm wore off. Rudy grew a mustache and Vanessa had her share of terrible hairdos. The fish was tailless once Denise's husband Martin and Raven Simone joined the ensemble. Raven brought nothing to the show and Theo bloomed into an intelligent young man over night. Of course, I was as heartbroken as Dwayne Wayne was over my crush marrying plain old Martin. There were still some good episodes here and there, but it wasn't as good as it was at first. Over the summer of 90, we were informed through TV Guide that yet aaanother person was coming to stay in the Huxtable household. Who else but Erica Alexander as, the never mentioned before season 7, Cousin Pam. She was brought on to be like an urban Cosby kid. The premise failed because Pam's friend, Charlamane, had a voice which sounded like nails on a chalkboard. The last episode aired after the LA Riots coverage, if I remember correctly. Theo graduated which served as the final fact that Heathcliff was an excellent well educated father. All in all, it was a good show, but the show went in too many different directions. -- Submitted By: () on September 13, 2014, 8:48 pm

Boy Meets World - TV Shows
Day one. This show was a reverse version of The Wonder Years. Let us observe....Older brother? Check. Sister? Yep. One male best friend? Check. Love interest that was once a friend? Yes. Savage brother as a lead? Check. This was nothing but a ripoff replacement because Fred Savage was too old for another season of The Wonder Years. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 8:12 pm

REAL Ghostbusters, The - TV Shows
The Ghostbusters were the tried and true heroes of the 1980s. Everyone wore the shirts in 1985, so the cartoons and toyline followed. The fish was out of water with the second season episodes. The fish was boned when the show became Slimer and the Real Ghostbusters. Then, the fish was served with coleslaw once they changed the animation and music for the fifth season. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 8:06 pm

MC Hammer - Music Groups
I spent almost all of ninety two singing Too Legit 2 Quit. I loved the In Living Color sketch where Tommy Davidson playing Too Sold Out to Quit. By then, Hammer was doing KFC commercials, had a doll and a cartoon. MC Hammer was everywhere in the early 90s, basically. MC Hammer jumped with his 95 album because he tried to go hard, but everyone still saw him as the head honcho of the cheesy pop-rap scene. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 7:59 pm

Arsenio Hall Show, The - TV Shows
Like everyone has said already, this was the hottest show on television in 1989. Who can forget the dogpound or his catchphrase, "Let's get busy". I wasn't permitted to watch this one because it came on after my bedtime. I remember teachers and teenagers talking about it in the hallway. I mainly saw it during the summertime or saw ads for it during commercial breaks. It first almost boned when Arsenio lost weight. He was still funny shortly after it happened, but the show was never the same. It became more apparent that he was a terrible interviewer during the third season. I love how he put Vanilla Ice in the hot seat. I thank him for that. Also. I was grateful for it because of the SNL Carsenio sketches. The last iconic moment of this show was when Bill wore the Ray Bans and played that saxophone. The show became filler after that. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 7:51 pm

Different World, A - TV Shows
It's a different world, it's a different world, from where you come from. It seemed way to unbelievable that Whitley Gilbert could fall for Dwayne Wayne. She must have been on something. There were many opportunities for the fish to be boned with this one. They found the Underground Railroad at Hillman. Lisa Bonet left and that annoying other girl came along (the one who found the Underground Railroad). Dwayne Wayne lost the flip-up glasses when most of America were buying them from flea market vendors. Dean Cain was a racist in a very special episode. Dwayne Wayne and Whitley went on a honeymoon in LA during the riots. Way too many scenes featured Dwayne and Whitley over the other characters. I'm sorry, but they just weren't that fascinating. Who can forget the new kids in town for this one? -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 7:34 pm

Pizza Hut - Random Topics
Pizza Hut boned when they stopped the distribution of kids pizza packs. I remember the Land Before Time puppets, Back to the Future solar shades, Nickelodeon magazine, Eureekas Castle puppets, Ninja Turtles cassette tapes, Rocketeer plastic cups, Pirates of the Dark Water plastic cup, Disney's Beauty and the Beast plastic cups, Darkwing Duck set and the Garfield toys. Also, the pizza used to taste better even in the 2000s. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 7:06 pm

Bobby Brown - Music Groups
Wasn't Bobby Brown on the soundtrack to everyone's life in the early 90s? His second album was the best out of all three. The fish left the water when his third one hit, but there were still some great tracks on there. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 6:48 pm

Bobby Brown - Music Groups
I remember being stunned by the metamorphous of Bobby Brown in ninety two. He went from producing child friendly albums to the one named after him. Of course, most prefer his second album to his first and third. Some mistake his second album for the first. His second one is probably the most memorable out of all three. Don't Be Cruel was probably many peoples introduction to new jack swing. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 6:23 pm

I was never a fan of New Edition. Bell Biv Devoe, on the other hand, was awesome. I know people who are familiar with every lyric to poison. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 6:09 pm

Child's Play - Movie Series
I liked number two the most out of all of them. The first film had the right amount of heart jumping moments, but not enough deaths. It just wasn't scary at all. The second one had everything I wanted from a living doll film. It was a lot gorier and had a higher body count number. The third one competed with the first for the most laughs. I remember being afraid of the poster for the third movie in ninety one. The series boned with the fourth film. Chucky did not frighten me anymore because he had stitches all over his face. Chucky did not appear as threatening with all of the stitches. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 6:01 pm

Captain N: The Game Master - TV Shows
The first season of this show was pretty good despite the changes made to the characters. I remember when both Captain N and Captain Planet were on Saturday mornings in the early 90s. Captain N was too much of a 30 minute advertisement for the NES, but it was still enjoyable. The tail of the fish was cut off once Gameboy showed up. How could a Gameboy turn up in a NES world? It's impossible. Were links for the Gameboy and NES even available back then? If so, who connected it to the NES? The fish was completely all bones after the Super NES came out. It must have stunk for Kevin to still be stuck in the NES after all of his friends were playing Super Mario World at the Super NES kiosk (boy, do those bring back memories). The animation was too blocky during the shows third season. I stopped watching it in ninety one but I never missed an episode of Super Mario World. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 5:47 pm

Full House - TV Shows
Danny Tanner was the sissiest father in all of Television history. I wanted to tell cartoon character impersonator Joey to knock it off. He never cracked me up. That mullet on uncle Jesse scared me for ages. Michelle was the most annoying on the show. DJ was too whiny for my ears. I found her to be mighty attractive when I was young. What was the name of the other one? Kimmy Gibler was designed to be that neighbor everyone knows. How many times did Danny speak of Kimmy? That got on my nerves after awhile. Day one! -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 5:24 pm

DuckTales - TV Shows
Ducktales woo hoo dun duna dunnnnnn. Sorry, I loved that theme song growing up. Ducktales boned with its second season which featured dispensible characters that brought nothing to the table. It is funny, I remember Gizmoduck (the first ever Robocop ripoff) appearing when Robocop The Animated Series was on TV. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 5:14 pm

Nickelodeon - Random Topics
Nickelodeon boned the fish due to all of those darn Nicktoons that aired in the mid nineties. Literally, the network was flooded by Ren and Stimpy ripoffs. I love Ren and Stimpy as much as the next guy, but we did not need Catdog. Its like, for every one of the first three Nicktoons, there was a rip-off. You name it and they had it. Doug? Hey Arnold. Rugrats? Real Monsters. Ren and Stimpy? Rockos Modern Life and Catdog. I cannot believe children of the nineties are nostalgic for that junk. Shortly after all of those Nicktoons aired, Nickelodeon became the Nicktoon channel. Gone was shows like Are You Afraid of the Dark and even All That. Then, Nickelodeon mutated into the Spongebob network and preteen channel. Why do the people behind Nickelodeon cannot balance things out. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 5:04 pm

Parker Lewis Can't Lose - TV Shows
This show was simply wonderful in the beginning. I took it Parker was a fan of the new jack swing because of all of those rayon shirts with the gaudy designs that he wore. Like everyone else on here, I remember the Parker versus "Ferris Bueller" and "Eerie, Indiana" wars. Parker beat them both, and at the time it seemed like he could do no wrong. Once Annie came along, Parker transformed from being a superhuman to a regular guy. The title of the show even changed. Worse yet, Kubiak went from being a bully to a friend of Parkers. I think Shelly admitted she had feelings for Jerry. Everything seemed to change with the advent of the Atlas diner. Still, this show is a FOX classic. I voted "never boned". -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 4:44 pm

Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The - TV Shows
Man, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was a good one when it first started. It used to come on before Ferris Bueller (w/ Jennifer Aniston) on Monday nights. This show was perfect for the early 90s. The early 90s could also go by the name "the Cheesy Pop-Rap Era". There were so many moments on this program. My favorite part from one episode was when Carlton sung Jungle Fever by Steve Wonder. This show not only boned the fish but buried its remains also. I didn't like the new Vivian, she was bland to the core. Then, Nicky was born and Will began making too many fat and short jokes. I wanted to throw my remote at the screen whenever Carlton did his Tom Jones dance. We get it, Carlton did not want to identify himself as African American. I couldn't stand Will's relationship with Lisa played by Nia Long. The very special episodes were even worse, but they were funny because they were so bad. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 4:33 pm

Blossom - TV Shows
This show was decent in the beginning before all of the very special episodes. I recall Phylicia Rashad, Will Smith, Salt N Pepper, Little Richard and ALF all making appearances on the show. Blossom was one of the first programs of the 1990s along with Twin Peaks, In Living Color and Northern Exposure. The show was different from all else that was on at the time because of that fact listed above. I thought Six had a weird name until Seven showed up on Married with Children. Who can forget when Joey Lawrence let out a "whooooa". This show seemed to go downhill from ninety three to ninety four. Firstly, almost every episode was about Blossom dating new guy of the week. Then, that Kennedy girl and her mother were added. Did this show really need a child star? It was supposed to be a girl blossoming into a woman. I just stopped watching somewhere in the mid 90s. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 4:21 pm

Beetlejuice - TV Shows
I can remember seeing this show before renting the movie. After I saw the picture, I thought to myself, "How did this pervert get a cartoon?" There was something a bit eerie about a thirty something ghoul befriending a teenager. Nonetheless, I loved laughing at Jacques LaJean. He was one "boney" bodybuilder, hehe. For this one the fish came close to being skinned after the show gained some popularity because that is when the scriptwriters got the idea to turn Beetlejuice into Roger Rabbit. Remember Doomie? -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 4:12 pm

227 - TV Shows
227 boned the fish in nineteen eighty nine when Jackee left the show to star on that failed spin-off of hers.This was the quintessential sitcom of the mid to late eighties. Everything was there from the pastel pinks to the Nike shell suits. The fish was breathing for air on and off with this one. There were exit stage rights, what happened to Kia Goodwins character? Who can forget the new kid in town, Countess Vaughn? Remember when Stoney Jackson, model Toukie Smith, Barry Sobel and Paul Winfield came aboard? I used to turn down the volume and play 80s music while I watched this one. The music of the time goes hand in hand with this program. I think the same can be said for A Different World. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 20, 2014, 7:47 am

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure - Movie Series
The second film was the "Death" of the series, if you know what I mean. I still liked it, I thought William Sadler was excellent Grim Reaper. It was pretty "rad" to see those evil Bill and Ted robots. I thought so at the time too. I vote "never boned". I can see the fish being gutted as they work on the third film (coming soon). Two is enough, they don't need to ruin the series by adding another one. By now, Bill and Ted have done it all. Well, that is if you count the animated show, live action program and Marvel comic books. What was it with all of the duos in the early 1990s? How many were there? Bill and Ted, Wayne and Garth, Kid N Play, Ren and Stimpy and Beavis and Butthead, those are the ones off the top of my head. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 3:35 pm

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures - TV Shows
I remember when this show first premiered on CBS Saturday Mornings. They had Alex Winter, Keanu Reeves and comedian George Carlin (RIP) doing the voices. It was definitely "excellent", to put it in Bill and Ted terms. Then, Bill and Ted ultimately blew up in late '90. I remember almost everyone doing Bill and Ted impersonations. Brennan Howard did "a most excellent" job on Gamepro TV having the Bill and Ted voice down. Bill and Ted were huge in the HW Bush era. Unfortunately, the second season came around with horrible animation and different voices. I remember thinking at the time, "It's over." I still watched, but it wasn't the same. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 3:23 pm

1990's - Random Topics
The early 1990s (1990-1993) are the most stereotyped time in all of history. People see Nirvana on the rock charts in late '91 and assume the grunge period began right then and there. They're wrong about that one, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was only an anthem to the class of '93. I just wanted to clear that up. The early 1990s, despite the recession (nowhere near as bad as the early 80s one) and crime rate, were to put it in slang, "maxin' and relaxin'". Where do I begin? The Bart Simpson shirts, British Knight sneakers, Reebok Pump sneakers, Turtlemania, "Get a Life" on the FOX Network, Tommy Vu commercials, those 8 ball jackets, Kid N Play, neon Super Soakers, Hypercolor, Vanilla Ice haircuts, New Jack Swing blowing up, Notre Dame being everyone's team, Michael Jordan, Starter jackets, beepers, biker shorts, Macaulay Culkin being everyone's favorite child star, Tiny Toon Adventures in the afternoon, Ren and Stimpy on for the first time, overalls with one strap down, leather African medallions on everyone, Urkelmania and that awesome Wayne's World movie (first one only). As you can tell, I loved the early 1990s (1990-1993). The mid and late 1990s were poor follow-ups that killed the decade, if you ask me. 1993-1999 made the decade look sloppier than most. In the mid and late 90s, for every one thing that was popular, there were billions of rip-offs to it. That's what makes the 90s the 90s, all of the rip-offs of popular 80s and early 90s properties. There were too many unnecessary rip-offs like Street Sharks, Night at the Roxbury, Catdog and that band Silverchair (a Nirvana rip-off). Rip-offs were present all of the way from the beginning of the 90s, but at least those were awesome. I still play Battletoads (Ninja Turtles rip-off) for the NES, because it's still "totally cool" (early 90s slang for awesome). There were wayyy too many rip-offs in the mid and late 90s. That's when the decade boned the fish for me. I grew nostalgic for the 80s in 1994 and early 90s in 1999 because of those times. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 3:13 pm

1980s - Random Topics
Unfortunately, I was too young to see the earliest part of the 80s for what they were. I seem to have a better understanding of them nowadays. 1981 was when the 1980s began. The early 1980s gave us MTV, the Cabbage Patch doll craze and the death of punk rock music. 1984 was when the middle part started and it took after 1983. Within this time, we saw He-mania, the best John Hughes films and economic growth boomed by 6.8%. Then came 1987 which kicked off the late 1980s. Some argue that inklings of '87 were found in late '86. During this time, we were introduced to the trashy Married with Children on the FOX Network, Spuds McKenzie and the Panama Invasion. The late 80s didn't really end until President George HW Bush announced the war against Iraq in mid '90. All in all, the 80s were "nothing but a good time" for some and horrible for others. The same can be said for most decades. Never jumped. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 2:50 pm

Milli Vanilli - Music Groups
I remember Milli Vanilli being so popular from late '89 to early 1990. There were contests, appearances on the Jim Henson Hour, song references on Full House (it was big then), mentions on In Living Color, and a remix album. At the start of 1990, they were "all" of that, but by the end, "nothing". Get it, they had a song called "All or Nothing." Of course, I was referring to Rob and Fab, not the old dudes who were actually member of the band. In the 80s and very early 90s, many lip-synching dancers were used as substitutes for overweight or elderly singers. I remember Martha Wash calling out the music director of the C&C Music Factory videos for using Velma Davis over her. Then, Marky Mark actually had Martha Wash in his video, I think. Back on topic, Milli Vanillli jumped the shark when their video dancers were outed. I even remember the lip-synching incident being referenced on ABC's Perfect Strangers. All throughout the HW Bush era, the dancers and the band tried to redeem themselves. Rob and Fab were featured in a Carefree sugarless gum commercial (when's the last time you saw one of those). The band went on to a produce another album under the name, "The Real Milli Vanilli". Two years after that one came out, Rob and Fab put out their album. Needless to say, no one bought it. I remember myself lip-synching Milli Vanilli in 1992, hehe. It was very sad to hear about Rob's suicide in 1998. I hope he is resting in peace. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 2:32 pm

Yo Yogi! - TV Shows
This was one of the nails in the coffin for rap music. It came out when rap was still in its golden age with Public Enemy, X-Clan and NWA. I'm surprised young Yogi never rapped throughout the whole show. Of course, I remember putting on the 3-d glasses that came with Post cereals (remember cereal prizes?) to watch the intro to this one. I remember my mother and I both sighing to Magilla Ice (spoof of the (c)rapper Vanilla Ice). It's hard to believe (c)rappers Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, Marky Mark, Another Badd Creation, Kris Kross and Sir Mix-A-Lot were ever popular. They certainly couldn't get away with their lyrics nowadays. In a way this show could have taken the title of "That Early 90s Show" away from Saved by the Bell. Huckleberry Hound had the Gitano sweater and Dwayne Wayne flip up glasses, if I remember correctly. In fact, every style from 1989 is present in this show. Neon greens, cropped jackets, Varsity jackets and more. This was one of those shows you watched once and never again after that. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 2:13 pm

Monsters - TV Shows
Monsters never jumped the shark. The saddest episode was the one with Glim-Glim the alien. I won't ruin it for you by giving you the premise, but it was a great episode. Once "Tales from Crypt" came along, the show was on its way out. Still, there were so many unforgettable episodes from this series. I could on forever about "Holly's House", "My Zombie Lover", "Museum Hearts", "One Wolf's Family" and "The Moving Finger". -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 2:04 pm

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987) - TV Shows
I'm torn between Day 6 and when the show aired on Saturday mornings. The purpose of the '87 mini-series was to sell the first batch of action figures. As I remember, some of the guys at my school had the whole first wave with a few series 2 figures sprinkled in here and there. This was the type of show that got gradually worse as it went on. I could tolerate the Punk Frogs, but the Turtles were starting to lose their weapons in 1988. Ninjas don't punch their enemies, they use throwing stars, at least. Then, the movie came out in 1990 and everyone was there. It was the highest grossing independent comic film of its time. Of course, Turtlemania occurred in April of 1990, so they moved the show from WPIX 11/ FOX Network to CBS and Mikey lost his nunchaku. The fall of '90 and '91 episodes weren't so bad, because they were still 30 minute toy commercials for the most part. Then, it switched over to become a full on Saturday morning cartoon in 1992. That's when it truthfully jumped the shark for me. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 1:56 pm

Don't get me wrong, this show was terrible at times. Did AC Slater really believe his buddy bands were going to be a hit over Zack's friendship bracelets? 1989 was the year of friendship bracelets, then came the slap wraps (slap bracelets, ftwdk) one year later. Yeah, I miss the late 80s and early 1990s. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 1:43 pm

21 Jump Street - TV Shows
This was one of the first shows on the FOX Network. Long before COPS or America's Most Wanted, this show was this was the only action-adventure show that aired at night. It has that FOX feel to it, which is why it never held up in reruns. Of course, now, it's very dated. It jumped with the two new Jonah Hill films which were action-comedy flicks. The original clings so well with the Tracey Ullman Show and the first season episodes of Married with Children with Steve in them. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 1:36 pm

Dinosaurs - TV Shows
I remember my Mother being annoyed by Baby Sinclair in 1992. "Not the Mama." "I'm the baby, gotta love me." They weren't even around for long. This show never jumped in my opinion, that is if you ignore it as a Simpsons rip-off. The 1990s were the decade of rip-offs, anything that was popular had a rip-off to it. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 1:30 pm

This is my generation's Andy Griffith Show. It' so bad (not in the Michael Jackson way), it's good. I can watch it all day and at any time. Sure, it boned the fish over and over, but it's still watchable. I just realized the other day that this show was "That Early 90s Show" for those of us who wanted one.

The episode where the mouse is sitting on the toilet and Bear jumps out from behind the shower curtain. The mouse just goes, "Oh, you startled me Bear!"

I distinctly remember an episode where Bear was having a party and before the guests arrived, some music starts out of nowhere and he began doing the electric slide.

I agree with the poster who said that Bear IS too damn big. I took my 3 year old to see the show live, and he was so terrified we had to move to the back of the theater. We finally ended up leaving. I have not been able to take him to a live performance of anything since. I hope I haven't turned him into a performing arts phobic for the rest of his life. We did enjoy spending about $50 in souvenirs before the show, however. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 3:21 pm

Nickelodeon - Random Topics
Nick jumped when the Jimmy Neutron ads came out. I'm sick and tired of waiting for a show to come on and this 5-10 minute Jimmy Neutron thing comes on between commercials. The worst part is when Jimmy and his "dog" pops out from the logo in the bottom corner of the screen in the middle of the show, and they're doing something to mess up the show taking up half of the screen. The worst one was during an episode of "Hey Arnold!", Jimmy and his "dog" came out onto the screen. Jimmy had one of his inventions. He rewinded about 10 minutes of the show (in 3 seconds). Then he fast forwarded it to where it was, and he did that 3 or 4 times. He rewinded it one more time, giggled, and ran out. He didn't even fast forward it back! So he wastes 30 seconds, and then I have to watch 2 minutes of what I already saw. Plus taking up half the screen, with him and his damn dog making noise doing something, drowning out the sound of the show I am trying to watch! They should just keep that little bastard out of the shows that he doesn't belong be in! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 3:05 pm

Nick Cannon. He is the ONE that made Nickelodeon jumped the shark for sure. He is nothing but a Kel Mitchell wannabe. I hated him the FIRST time he joined the cast of All That. He is TOTALLY not funny. He takes over everything including the network itself. He turned Snick into Snick House (which is PURE GARBAGE) and that LAME TEENick Block. Even worst, He has his OWN show which is nothing but GARBAGE. As far as I'm concerned he is definely the one that made the #1 Cool Network into an MTV Wannabe fluff. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 3:00 pm

After a while it seemed like Lamont stopped caring about what he was doing or saying on the show. In some scenes he sounded like he was talking in slow motion. There was the episode where Fred thinks he's Jewish and Esther is telling him the story about the Esther in the bible. An argument escalates and Fred Takes a baseball bat and starts chasing Esther. What does Lamont do? Run after Fred to stop him? No, he just stands and looks into the camera with the blankest look I've ever seen in my life. The producer should have just yelled cut after Fred chased Esther out the door. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on September 10, 2014, 2:47 pm

They had roars of clapping before EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER. It was so bad they had to wait a good minute or so before speaking their lines to wait for the clapping to die down. For example, Fred walks in and the audience erupts in clapping. Bubba bursts through the door and the audience continues its clap-fest.
