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.

What's with all of the incessant apple juice drinking on The Cosby Show? Did Cosby own stock in Treetop or something? I find it hard to believe that Cliff and Claire are so wholesome as to not drink any alcohol EVER. Only Vanessa expermiments with the wild side of booze and quickly learns her lesson of this evil. Also, the Cosby kids are all goody two shoes (unbelievable for the time and context) and never seriously consider, let alone take up, premarital sex (except for Pam but she was a non-Huxtable ghetto girl), smoking or any other "vice" that most teenagers and young adults consider. I think Bill Cosby inadvertently reached a new TV threshold - The Huxtables were TV's first black Mormon family! -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 7:10 pm

Robin Williams - Celebrities
I noticed I hadn't seen much of Robin Williams in recent years. I had no idea he had all of these problems in his life. I just thought it was a career slump. In addition to the severe depression, he had had heart surgery and was battling Parkinson's disease. He always put on such a positive happy face when being interviewed, even when coming out of those rehab centers that I never even suspected he would do anything like this. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 17, 2014, 6:43 pm

The perfect Jumping point for the Fresh Prince of Bel Air is the hazing episode. You know the one, Will and Carlton both pledge the fraternity and Carlton is hazed for being too white. The line "I'm running the same race as you brother, why are you tripping me up?" is a perfect example of "A Very Special..."

In real life, Todd would have left Toni sooner. Everyday she is practically calling him cracker or "broke ass white man" or leprechaun. I mean it's one thing to joke but you can't just call your husband broke short and white every day of your life (and in front of everybody) and think it's gonna be the recipe for a happy marriage and ride off into the sunset. But when Toni left the show, I tried to watch a few times and the results weren't pretty. It was bad enough Toni was absent but then they tried to put Monica into the Girlfriends fold. WTF?!? First the writers wanted us to hate Monica (which I did) and now they want us to just act like she's "one of the gang"? Please. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 17, 2014, 6:19 pm

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

It was a normal enjoyable family show. But then, out of nowhere, it became like crazy, inane science fiction.

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

Here's an example of a typical Family Matters episode summary from the final seasons: Oh No! Steve has morphed himself into Stephan, but unfortunately the cool genes have gone awry and Stephan has become evil and wants to take over the body. Steve's only hope is to become Bruce Lee and teleport himself through time to fight the pirate that Stephan has become. Unfortunately 3J is using the pod to go to Paris and search for the 9 year old Judy that randomly disappeared from the family.

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

All I can remember specifically about the show was this episode where Urkel and Eddie go to some college party and end up outside on the fire escape and the whole thing collapses.

If it wasn't bad enough that they made Judy dissapear (along with MANY other things like Stephan, 3J, Urkelbot, Myra, new Harriet, and the list goes on) the grandmother, probably the only character I could stand, suddenly disappeared too.

This show for me jumped the shark at many different times. Like for one, how are they going to get rid Judy without saying a word. I mean at the very beginning of the show there were three kids, but somewhere along the line there were only two. I MEAN COME ON! That was stupid. How are you just going to get rid of one kid without an explanation. The same thing happened with Rachel. She just left, no goodbyes, no peace out, deuces, NOTHING.

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

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

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

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

Even though I really love this show and watch it on lifetime, I have only a few problems with it. I was very annoyed when every show turned into a pulpit for Julia Sugarbaker and her women's rights/southern hospitality rants. I also hated it when every word out of Anthony's mouth was "When I was in Prison..." or "I have this friend who I met in jail.." Those got tiring quick. And why was he the only man on the show?

The whole show just started crumbling when Denise got her haircut. Before that, we had the happy little Huxtable family, getting into trouble all by themselves. It was fun.

WHAT THE HELL? Another low; the second lip-synch. The first one was funny because it was new, but by the second time, not so much. Dad is a doctor, Mom is a lawyer, and yet the "gift" they keep giving is a song and dance. Another dip was the addition, in a relatively short span, it seemed to me, of any celebrity they could lay their hands on. Oh, and Grandpa is a jazz musician, too. "Yeah, he used to blow with Monk and Charlie Parker. Let me introduce you to my close personal friends in this super-tight jazz combo. You'll never see these people again."

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

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

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

Do not watch the last season unless you want to be nauseated by Pam and her jive-talking boyfriend (who had me spitting nails every time he opened his mouth: "Well ya see, Mr. Huxtable, I'm gon' check out dis college just to see if it meet my high standards"), Pam and her caricature girlfriend who sounded like Minnie Mouse on helium, Olivia and Cliff in painful scenes that seemed to go on forever, and later, Winnie and Nelson in the same type of scenes. Kids do say the darndest things, especially when they've been coached. But that's another story, and another show. Much of the last season of TCS is indistinguishable from KSTDT. As TCS got more popular, you could see the progression of Cosby's ego in his acting. And once he got that Ed.D, he became Moses atop the mount on every talk show, dispensing his words of wisdom on everything from how to raise children to how other comics should perform. As Richard Pryor once advised him, "Have a Coke and a smile and shut the fuck up"! -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:57 pm

The last few years of the show were not nearly as good as the early years. It got too preachy as the kids grew up. "Winnie" and "Nelson"???? Come on. I assume Winnie has had a name change since. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:53 pm

That Diego sure is a weird one, talking to animals the way he does. He needs to be locked up. And then there's the Christmas episode when Dora and Boots sneak out after her parents go to bed and walk to the North Pole. Great, it's always a good idea to subliminally teach kids they can leave the house and travel across the continent while their parents are sleeping! Also, there was actually an episode where Dora and company jump over a school of sharks. Coincidence? I think not! -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:40 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
When Darlene left for college the show seemed to lose something special. Sara Gilbert's absence was too obvious from most episodes. I think it actually jumped somewhere before the lottery but the lottery was the final nail in the coffin. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:32 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
Even though the show jumped before it, just want to go on the record and say once again, that "Roseambo" was one of the most terrible episodes of any show I've ever seen. Roseanne is still my favorite show by far but Roseambo seemed like the result of something that was written while on acid, meth and crack at the same damn time. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:31 pm

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

This was not a JTS moment but I just want to say that I thought Crystal was weird and didn't get why they put so much focus on her and Dan's dad getting together. Idk about everybody else but I for one, didn't give a damn about Crystal having the hots for Dan's pop or vice versa. I didn't exactly hate Crystal, I just thought she was uninteresting and stiff and any episodes focusing on her seemed forced. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:20 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
The great thing about Roseanne was that it addressed normal, everyday, blue-collar, middle class family life. When they hit the jackpot, the show lost its soul. And Jackie, who'd been hilarious the entire run of the show, suddenly became a total basket case. Like a female Don Knotts. What was up with that cop-out of a series finale? I hate it when shows do that. I still love the show so much, it just sucked that they chose to end it that way. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:18 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
It jumped when it seemed like Roseanne wanted the show to be more and more outrageous every week so she gradually turned such a brilliant, funny and realistic show into more of a spectacle of what it used to be. Somewhere during Season 7, each episode started to take a turn for the worse. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:14 pm

This show has always sucked, combined with unfunny writing and a squeaky clean Damon Wayans, it just bites.

Not a JTS moment but I thought it was messed up how in the episode where Mo was trying to save the Den from being sold, Hakeem and Niecy kept cracking jokes about Andell saying she needs some hair and all that shit. I mean I know some ppl talk about ppl behind their backs' but they were overdoing it and it was random as hell. Plus why diss somebody and then smile in their face like you're their pal 5 minutes later. As many free smoothies Andell let them come in there and have you'd think they'd be a little nicer towards her. LOL -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 9:00 pm

Moesha - TV Shows
The first few seasons of Moesha were the best, but the ending of the show was the pits. Because of sudden cancellation, they just snatched the show off the air without explaining what happened to everybody. The entire last season was ridiculous with Moesha and Niecy hooking up with random ppl, not to mention the whole Dorian ordeal, and the show went off without telling who was pregnant, Moesha passing out because Miles was kidnapped, etc. The writers had already planned out what was going to happen next in the 7th season but because UPN cancelled the show none of the loose ends were ever tied up. According to Sheryl Lee Ralph, it was actually Moesha who was pregnant by Q but of course, the storyline never got the chance to be explored. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:57 pm

Janice was the only one who was saying things that the modeling agency people might actually say. And she was funny too. I remember she really liked Brittany from season 4 (who Tyra seemed to think was too "Playboy") and I agreed with Janice, Brittany had the best pictures of anyone that season. But of course, Janice's picks ALWAYS got eliminated. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:42 pm

The challenges, although very entertaining (at the expense of the girls, of course) got more and more ridiculous over time. Posing naked on ice in roller skates? Posing with real live tarantulas and then berating the girls who were rightfully terrified? Not everyone wants to hold a giant hairy arachnid in their hand or near their cheek.

Why did Tyra have "one-on-one counseling" sessions with the girls who have "issues" in their lives? I thought the show was called "America's Next Top Model", not "America's Next Top Guidance Counselor". Every cycle they put Tyra in a room with one of these girls and she gives them her "Giiiiirrrrl, I've been where you at, and you've gotta get your life together. I went from Inglewood to Hollywood, and you can't do that if you keep beating bitches up and stealing!" pep talk, and somehow after one counseling session with Tyra, the girl cries, tells her whole life story, and then has a complete change of heart and life? And why dud Tyra talk with a whispery, breathy voice during these "counseling session sequences" as well as in the final sequence where she tells them if they made it through or not? Does whispery, breathy voice= "I really care about you"?? -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:32 pm

Tyra and Miss Jay were always telling somebody that they walk like they're on crack. I mean, even if it may be true, that isn't really helping. LOL. How about telling them how they can ya know, actually IMPROVE their walk? Granted, some of the girls DID walk like they were still evolving, but what do you expect when you stick somebody in 7 inch heels (for your entertainment) on a 2 inch runway on national television? Ppl end up going to the hospital and get threatened that if they aren't checked out by the time of the next elimination tomorrow night it will affect the judges' decisions on who goes home.

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

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

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

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

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