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.

All in the Family - TV Shows
The show never really boned; some of the most impressive episodes (and acting) took place during the last couple of years it was on the air (1978-79). In fact, three of Carroll O'Connor's four Emmys were awarded for the show's last three seasons. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 21, 2011, 1:50 am

Pornography - Random Topics
They used to have to get creative with the titles when they were doing a movie spoof. Now they use the ACTUAL NAME OF THE MOVIE they're spoofing. "___________: The XXX Parody" or "This is NOT __________". I'm just amazed they can get away with this in such a litigious society. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 20, 2011, 9:59 pm

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! - TV Shows
I first noticed the censorship when the Vatican episode in season 7 seemed to disappear without a trace. It aired once, but it's been deleted from the official episode guide and the only mention it ever existed is a tiny episode stating it's not part of the "complete" season on DVD. We know what really happened. Showtime censored it. The lack of many fan-demanded episodes and abundance of completely silly episodes (for example, old people starring Maddox) leads me to believe there's more corporate censorship than the Vatican episode that we just don't know about because it never got its one airing. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 9:06 pm

John Wayne - Celebrities
Avoided military service during WW2 because it would have interfered with his movie career, then spent the rest of his life trying to atone for his selfishness by becoming a hyper-patriot.

Daily Show, The - TV Shows
The Ceej, I see what you're saying, but I respectfully disagree. Game shows, news shows, etc. can and do indeed bone the fish. Game shows it can happen when a host changes (Price is Right, Family Feud, Pyramid, Password), rules change (Millionaire), or cast changes (Hollywood Squares: Paul Lynde dying, Match Game: Richard Dawson leaving, etc.)News shows it can happen if a host stays past their time (Larry King). I always thought The Daily Show was at its best in 2006. The show still was seen as a news satire and the cast of characters was perfect (Colbert, Helmes, Carrell, etc.) When the characters left and the show slowly started getting more and more self righteous about liberal issues and the line between satire and reality became more unclear, that's when this show started boning the fish. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 20, 2011, 4:24 pm

Eight Simple Rules - TV Shows
Trying to continue this show after John Ritter's unfortunate death would be like trying to continue Roseanne if she had died of a heart attack in the middle of the fifth season. And don't think they wouldn't have done that too. After Ritter died, there should have been one final episode to tie up any loose ends and then cancelled. A show doesn't work without its main character. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 2:49 pm

Daily Show, The - TV Shows
I'm sort of confused at a lot of shows on here. Game shows, pundit shows, news shows, satirical shows. How do these types of shows jump the shark. The purpose of news satire it to poke fun at current events. By its very definition, it evolves with current events and politics. By its very definition, jumping the shark is impossible. Its listing should be removed because of this. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 2:43 pm

Somebody created a reason about how this show sucked because it wasn't Cheers. Well, let's just ignore the fact that if you compare everything to your favourite thing, everything else will fall short. Becker was far better than anything Cheers could ever hope to be. If I were Ted Danson, I'd be trying to keep my work on Cheers a secret. That was an embarrassing role. Becker, on the other hand, was hilarious. At least up until the point things started going weird with Reggie and ultimately had her leave the show. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 12:52 pm

Nadya "Octomom" Suleman - Celebrities
Today there are thousands - perhaps hundreds of thousands - of Americans doing all manner of things in the desperate hope of becoming celebrities. It's just bloody crazy, and I'm not convinced that a contestant on even a "respectable" reality show like American Idol is that far removed from a woman who wants to set a world record for popping out kids. While we are singling out this pathetic person for scorn, we might want to consider sending a little of that scorn in the direction of the sick culture that compelled her to seek America's attention in the first place. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 12:35 pm

Home Improvement - TV Shows
This is one of the few shows where the changes to format actually improved it rather than destroyed it. The first two season followed more or less a basic formula with very few deviations from it. The third season started getting more involved and deviated even more from this formula. The show started really picking up in the fourth season when Jill decided to go back to college, thus adding intelligent humour in the mix with the slapstick that could not have carried the show another full season. It made a few mistakes along the way, but nothing that compromised the integrity of the show in more than a one-off sense. I would say this is one of the very few shows that have never jumped the shark. Don't get me wrong. If Tim Allen had gotten his way and gotten a ninth season picked up, this show would have gone straight to hell within the first two episodes. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 12:30 pm

Arlen Specter - Celebrities
There's nothing wrong with a Republican who bucks his party once in awhile. ("RINO" is a stupid term; it suggests that every party member has to follow exactly the same rigid philosophy all the time, which as far as I know only the emptiest of heads can do with a clear conscience.) But Specter's behavior, pretty much for the entirety of his Senate career, has been less that of a maverick than of a sneaky opportunist (of the throw-his-grandmother-under-a-bus-to-get-votes variety). It's that reason, and not his lack of ideological purity, that ought to earn him the enmity of the party faithful. (P.S.: Excessive loyalty to a political party is a form of retardation. You're welcome.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 12:23 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
Even though the roots were shaken a few times before this (for example, Sarah Chalke stopped trying to play the same Becky Lecy Goransan established during her third episode in the role) the lottery win was so much of a shark jumper the phrase should have changed from "jump the shark" to "win the lottery." I can only assume the phrase didn't shift because if we said, "Sliders won the lottery after Arturo was killed off," it would sound like a compliment. The Conners winning the lottery was the single worst downward shift in the history of television. That's not to say the episodes that followed weren't hilarious. Oh, they were. The problem I (and most fans have) is that the story was compromised to get those laughs. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 12:23 pm

Beastie Boys, The - Music Groups
Pelirojo's retraction shows he has alot of heart, and I salute him for that. Now to the subject at hand: To as great a degree as I am able, I ignore the political bleatings of musicians and actors when evaluating their art. (One must do this for the sake of one's blood pressure if for no other reason.) People are free to believe the dumbest things they can find to stuff into their heads; as long as they entertain me, I couldn't care less if they believe in the Tooth Fairy. And the Beastie Boys HAVE been entertaining me with considerable skill for a quarter century. Nor do they show any serious signs of boning.

James Bond - Movie Series
As soon as Sean Connery left the series it boned. With Moore, it devolved into a parody of itself. Closer to the Our Man Flint Series, which was a true parody. It improved a little under Pierce Brosnan and it's on the right track now with Daniel Craig, but it still falls short of the Bourne series. -- Submitted By: (rixter) on April 20, 2011, 11:13 am

Sliders - TV Shows
They killed of Professor Arturo long before Rhys-Davies left the show. The show jumped the shark at the end of Season 2, Episode 8 when they left the original Arturo and went sliding with the double. There were a few good episodes between that and the end of season two, but that marked the beginning of the end and the show went straight to hell with no rest stops at the season 2 finale. Up until that point, it was a great show, though. -- Submitted By: (TheCeej) on April 20, 2011, 10:35 am

TAXI - TV Shows
I always thought Latka, Simka and Reverand Jim were GREAT background characters who had some fun zingers to add to the mix. However; when episodes were centered around any of these three, it would be rather wearisome by the end.

Sean Hannity - Celebrities
Sean Hannity boned when he chose ideological loyalty over intellectual honesty. A case in point: Several years ago the appropriately named Michael Crook, the head of that ugly organization called "Forsake the Troops", was on Hannity & Colmes. Sean did everything he could think of to link Crook's odious group, and the sick mentality behind it, with the Democratic Party. It took Alan Colmes's passionate (and clearly sincere) denunciation of Crook's group for Sean to finally throw in the towel and admit that this group was indeed not representative of the Democratic Party - a fact he knew all along but hoped his fans wouldn't notice. When the need to score a cheap political point is so strong that you resort to straw-man arguments that you know are bogus, you have chosen to place your ideology's fortunes above your honor and integrity, and that is a truly pathetic tradeoff. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 20, 2011, 3:44 am

Meh. One of two FOX shows that debuted about a hipster college grad getting his first corporate job. I can't remember what the other one was called.

I have unfortunely watched the fake terminator movie called "The Terminators" (has the "S" at the end). I have thought thinking it was T4 but this is the worst piece of crap I ever watched. "The Termators" plot was stupid, most the actors don't know how to act, and the ending was plain stupid. The storyline susposely be about a bunch a house robots all of sudden revolts against the humans for no reason and they had to go to space to shut them down.

I stopped watching when the premise of her show went from discussing current issues to shoving self-improvement down our throats.

All the while these glassy-eyed Stepford wives would nod in agreement as if it were gospel. Sickening. That and the overbearing adulation of celebrities was finally too much for me. And don't give me that,"Well she's given away so much money to those in need" mantra. It's all self gratification. I glad her show is going off the air.

Though I do wonder why Obama can't produce a birth certificate, the whole birther thing is annoying. Plus, Trump has bankrupted companies, just like the "great" George W. Bush. Just when I think our prospects for Presidents can't get any bleaker (Obama, Trump, Palin, Romney and Newt? Yuck), he has to throw his hat in the ring.

As much of a louse as Frank Burns was, Larry Linville in real life was an all-around nice guy and one of the best people you could ever ask to work with, which has been attested to by other M*A*S*H cast members in virtually every interview/documentary about the show I've ever seen. His reason for leaving the show (that he'd done all he could with the Burns character) was completely correct and totally understandable. Linville was a true unsung hero. The contrast between his character and his real-life self reminds me of a quote from Paul McCrane (of Dr. Robert "Rocket" Romano infamy on ER): "I am not an @$$hole, I just play one on TV."

Thanksgiving - Random Topics
Meh. Thanksgiving USED to be about families getting together in peace and harmony like, 40 years ago. But with the (intentional) destruction of the family unit by society it's turned into an obligatory squaqbble-fest where you see your drunken uncle Fred and wacked out aunt Rita and now divorced parents and their sullen teen children once a year and everybody fights over something or other while eating a store bought butterball since men won't cook a full bird and women now think it's "exploitation" for them to do it. Just an annual convention of utter dysfunctionality. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 17, 2011, 7:19 pm

Donald Trump - Celebrities
I don't think it's fair to called Donald Trump a racist just because he questioned Obama's place of birth. I think he using political tatics to exploit that fact to sway people to vote for him when or if he starting a campaign. A racist comment, maybe but it depends, but a racist, no. A egomanic media whore however is a definite yes. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on April 17, 2011, 7:18 pm

Democratic Party - Random Topics
Love your comment, Soggy. While Republicans whine about religion, family values and tax cuts, the Democrats whine about gay rights, the poor and taxing for government programs. In the end, both screw up our country and we're the ones cleaning up the mess. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on April 17, 2011, 7:17 pm

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
My "bloody problem" with him is the fact he's constantly shoved down everyone's throats as this iconic figure, this mega star that somehow everybody should worship. If his audience is prepubescent girls then why should I be forced to care about him at all? I shouldn't even know who he is, right? And don't blame "the paparazzi" either, people like Bieber know full well what they're getting into and WANT attention since it's the only way they'll make money and be considered worth anything their whole lives. It's a mutually calculated group effort to bombard all of America with their image nonstop, and he's just as in on it as anyone else. And all the other people you mentioned lived at a time when celeb worship wasn't forced on us one tenth as much as it is today. It was actually possible to be an adult in the 70s without having the Osmonds or David Cassidy forced into your brain 24/7. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 17, 2011, 7:13 pm

South Park - TV Shows
South Park has not only has gross out humor since the beginning (about 15 years ago now) but it actually used to be a lot worse before Matt and Trey grew up. I used to refuse to watch it at all back in the day because of this. Now they at least use it to bash the right people, as opposed to just trying to offend for the sake of offending. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 17, 2011, 7:07 pm

How nice that America is in such good shape that idle American minds can sit around and come up with such philosophies, and then fashion political movements from them for their amusement. No doubt the folks who join these silly organizations are well-fed, middle-class types who don't have to worry about starving or dying of dysentery or being caught in the crossfire of a violent Third World coup. Put them in Darfur or Libya or the Congo and let's see them share their wonderful ideas and theories with their new neighbors. I'm sure they'll pick up plenty of new members....

Democratic Party - Random Topics
Democrats and Republicans: two sides of the same filthy coin. It's all about protecting an elite and controlling the rest of us. The only difference between the two parties is the identity of the elite, and the names of those they employ to serve them. Neither party has a monopoly on dishonesty or hypocrisy or greed or ignorance or terrible ideas. Those of you who insist otherwise need to remove that ideological ball and chain from your leg, take off the denial-colored glasses, and see the real world. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 17, 2011, 4:31 pm

Thanksgiving - Random Topics
Any occasion for families to get together seems to me to be bone-proof by definition. Never mind all the sociopolitical and religious baggage; the bottom line is that Thanksgiving has become a day in which families come together for (hopefully) a good time, and charities cook meals for homeless people. This cynical overanalysis some of you people bring to these essentially benign subjects borders on the infantile. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 17, 2011, 4:18 pm

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
I don't understand the hatred so many feel toward this kid. His audience is little girls, for pete's sake! If you are not a little girl, what's your bloody problem with him? He's no more objectionable than Bobby Sherman or David Cassidy or (shudder) Donny Osmond or (double shudder) Leif Garrett were, back in the day. Sure, his music is lightweight; sure, the funky haircut makes him look even younger than he is; sure, some of his public pronouncements don't quite measure up as the product of a great intellect. So what? None of us is a member of his target audience, any more than your 12-year-old daughter is a member of Trent Reznor's target audience. And Bieber is hardly the worst child our 12-year-old daughters could lose their hearts to, is he? (Does he sing about the joys of drugs and pimping and shooting people? Hardly.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 17, 2011, 4:08 pm

Linville was brilliant, and a nice fellow too. And M*A*S*H without ol' Ferret Face would have been a pretty ordinary program - as the last five increasingly sanctimonious seasons in fact proved. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 17, 2011, 3:47 pm

Gunsmoke - TV Shows
Gunsmoke came close to losing my viewership when Milburn Stone disappeared, to be replaced by Pat Hingle. Happily, the move was only temporary, as rumors of Stone's death proved premature and he returned to the show a few months later. As for JohnnyRocket42's unsettling Dodie fixation - as demonstrated by pretty much everything he has submitted to this site in recent months - I can only recommend that he acquaint himself with the stellar acting career of one Robbie Rist and then get back to us.... -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 17, 2011, 3:35 pm

To me the gross out humor is something that needs to stop. It's worn thin long ago and when somebody thinks that a mangled corpse on screen is entertaining because it will get attention. Mark my word - there is such a thing as bad publicity. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 17, 2011, 11:22 am

South Park - TV Shows
Celebreties like Britney, Lindsay, Paris and others have gotten where they are with little talent or effort and don't seem to appreciate it. Seeing them self-destruct, however, is not what we are after. The episode depicts a headless Britney (after shooting herself) stalked by the press who are oblivious to her not having a head. The bloodthirsty press stalking suicidal Britney. Paparazzis stalking celebreties is an old issue. Invasion of privacy I think is the legal term. There is an audience for sleazy tabloid journalism, but most fans(including Britney's) would most likely be satisfied with an autograph not broadcasting that Britney went to the gas station restroom with no shoes on. Matt and Trey should should stick to writing comedy and leave the sanctimony to somebody else, especially when it takes the sickeningly maudlin, morose form that this did. I also want to state that somewhere intime there needs to be some sort of standard for this brand of "gross out" entertainment that everyone is so fond of these days. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on April 17, 2011, 11:20 am

I hated high school. Why would I want to talk to any of them now, 20 years later? True story: I changed schools after 10th grade and for my old school's ten year class reunion I heard they were going to graciously allow me to come if I shelled out $200. Not that I'd have gone anyway. Oh, and did I mention this reunion just happened to fall on 9/11? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 16, 2011, 7:04 pm

South Park - TV Shows
It's not that I have any "bloodlust", I just want people like Sheen and Britney and Lindsey Lohan to get out of the news permanently. If the only way for that to happen is for them to die from their hedonism (and apparently it is), then so be it. I'm just sick and tired of people like this being talked about 24/7. And then afterwards they can finally contribute to society for a change when their bodies are vivisected and inspected by scientists to see how any human can consume so many drugs and stay upright and conscious for so long. I'd like to know the answer to that one myself. BTW I loved the episode mocking Paris Hilton. Who apparently doesn't abuse drugs as much the others since I don't recall her being in the news recently. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 16, 2011, 6:22 pm

That episode was not a favorite of mine, but Trey & Matt said they based the episode on normally mild-mannered friends of theirs that suddenly had Britney Bloodlust. The recent Charlie Sheen meltdown is similar to Britney's, and people were lapping it up. I saw a piece on the news about Charlie Sheen's disastrous live tour. The reporter interviewed some of the people coming out and they said they were disappointed in the show because they wanted to witness "a trainwreck" or "something catastrophic". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 16, 2011, 2:49 am
