Revenge - TV Shows
This show was so good the first few seasons, but since Conrad was killed, and we find out David is alive, the storylines are messy, contrived, and just not interesting. Now wit Daniel dead, and everyone knowing the secret that drove the whole show, and the main antagonists either dead, gone, or accepting their wrong doing and moving on. It's crap! -- Submitted By: (JimmiPynk) on January 19, 2015, 8:48 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
I'm not a fan of this show at all. Adam Goldberg basically throws out anything he associates with the 80s as a reference on the show. So many items used as props were from the very early 1990s, not "1980something". The Bo Knows shirt, New Kids memorabilia and Hypercolor were all sold in the very early 90s. Who owned a pair of Reebok Pumps in November of 1989 when they first came out? I didn't get mine until sometime in the spring of 1990. This show should just focus on being a sitcom. I hate that he is confusing future generations with some of his references. No Mother was teaching their son how to do the Kid N Play kickstep in the late 1980s. Most people did not even know who Kid N Play were unless they watched Yo!MTV Raps. Their claim to fame was when they starred in the first teen flick of the very early 90s (House Party). Kid N Play even had a cartoon in the fall of 1990. I know the 80s were one great big transition from the groovy 70s into the hype early 90s, but the mid 80s were still purely 80s.He should set the show in 1985 like he originally set out to do with the pilot. The late 80s set up the early 90s moreso than the mid 80s did. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on January 18, 2015, 12:19 pm

Boy Meets World - TV Shows
Cory Matthews whined far more Kevin Arnold ever did. I hated this show even at the time. Ben Savage doesn't stack up with his brother's acting range. I can't believe this show has a spin-off. It was never pop culture. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on January 18, 2015, 12:04 pm

Life Goes On - TV Shows
"Corky singing 'Fight the Power' by Public Enemy'" in and of itself was stealing The Isley Brothers's credit (though it WAS to the recording of Public Enemy). (the rest of the comments are from jumptheshark.com) More comments: Kellie Martin was a little too saccharine as Becca.Corky singing "Fight the Power" Flava Flav shoulda kicked some retard ass!This show REally is whaT wE ARe watching all the Damn time.

Outer Limits, The (1963-1965) - TV Shows
This show had fantastic writers and directors! Watch all the episodes on Hulu Plus! Some people criticize the series for having really crappy special effects, which they did. I learned in my media history class that ABC bought the series for pennies and refused to pay to for things like expensive special effects. Most of the actors worked for union scale even the established stars. The stories are all compelling and they get the science right! Who cares if the special effects are on the crappy side? It's about the story, not the flash! Hands down, the two best episodes were written by the great Harlan Ellison: Soldier, and Demon With A Glass Hand. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on January 12, 2015, 2:54 pm

Raccoons, The - TV Shows
I loved this cartoon. It aired on Disney Channel back in the day and I'd like to thank CBC for sharing this with American children via satellite. It taught lessons and values while retaining an element of humor. Cyril probably should have remained a villain but I'm not necessarily sure you need an adversary for a compelling story line. I still love to find YouTube clips of this when available. If you haven't seen this show, I highly recommend it. -- Submitted By: (BradJames) on January 12, 2015, 1:55 pm

Taina - TV Shows
I had a big crush on Taina, I've always loved those Latinas, a girl in high school named Jennifer Garcia looked a lot like her as well and of course I crushed on her too! -- Submitted By: (BradJames) on January 12, 2015, 11:38 am

Adventures of the Gummi Bears, The - TV Shows
This was a quality cartoon, a great way to start off the Disney Afternoon after school. The idea sprang from Michael Eisner's son wanting the Gummi Bear candy -- Submitted By: (BradJames) on January 12, 2015, 11:21 am

I Dream of Jeannie - TV Shows
Jeannie was a really pretty lady or genie, whatever and so was her sister. The brunette one always wanted Tony as her sexual slave, were they pushing porno in the 60's subtly? -- Submitted By: (BradJames) on January 11, 2015, 12:25 pm

My Gym Partner's a Monkey - TV Shows
This was one of the first - but sadly, not the last - of the strident Cartoon Network originals that mistake "loud" for "funny". From the screams of "MY GYM PARTNER'S A MONKEY!! MONKEY!! MONKEY!!" in the opening credits straight through to the end of the episode, things are kept at a high decibel to disguise the fact that each story is a variant of the same plot: Human kid is mistakenly put in a school for animals and becomes best friends with a monkey with impulse control problems. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on December 27, 2014, 8:44 pm

Yes, Dear - TV Shows
While an average episode is the video equivalent of an ice cream headache, I have to admit I enjoyed the handful of later episodes featuring the great Lou Wagner - one as a clueless HR manager and two as the faithful assistant to Ian Buchanan's odious studio head. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on December 27, 2014, 8:25 pm

Flintstones, The - TV Shows
The first two seasons of THE FLINTSTONES are, in my opinion, a great sitcom! The rest of the show is, in my opinion, strictly a childrens. In the first two seasons of THE FLINTSTONES we see characters get beaned over the head with shovels, bowling balls and stuff. We see characters smoking. This was based on the immensely popular HONEYMOONERS that Jackie Gleason and Audrey Meadows gave us. The third season, is, in my opinion where the show goes wrong for me. The season opens with a silly story about Dino falling for a dinosaur TV star ("Sassie") and then on in it gets worse. A few stories later (Barney invisible) the catchy "Rise and Shine" theme has been replaced by the childish (but admittedly popular "Meet the Flintstones" theme which, incidentally, made its debut in the previous season on a children's record.). The next step is that ABC broadcast the show in color. The first two seasons were broadcast exclusively in black-and-white. A change from Black and white to color was a common shark jumping point for TV in the early sixties.The final episode of Season 2 for me, where the Flintstones REALLY had its show finale. Then the irreversible fate occurewd-the birth of Pebbles. The great Jackie Gleason once said that the reason that The Kramdens never had any children (on HONEYMOONERS) is that the kind of behaviour that the Kramdens exhibited on the show ceases to be popular once children are present. The creators of THE FLINTSTONES apparently released Mr.Gleason's lesson too late. The episodes around the birth of Pebbles from then on in for a while center on the fact that Fred must change his ways if he is to be a proper father. We see the sponsor change from Winston Cigarettes to Welch's grape juice. The first two seasons, if memory serves me clear, featured a lot of cartoon characters smoking. The show is quicky becoming a childrnes program. No longer can it be the sophisticated parody of the Hooneymooners that it once was. Now, do not take me wrong. I am not advocating smoking and violence. I am only pointing these two elements out in the change of "The Flintstones" from beuing a great adult satire show to being a children's program. The elimination of smoking and of violence by Season 3 clearly shows this. Again-the change to grape juice just simply further reflects thisunneeded change to children and families in demographics. The third season featured the final scene of Flintstone smoking and it is done, if memory serves me, in a farewell way. It is in the episode where Fred has to leave with his guilty self. His conscience lights up a gag joke exploding cigar., After that, we longer see any cartoon Flintstones characters smoke. Ideal toys also are sponsors. Then the show by fourth seasaon gets more nausetingly childish and insanse-Barney floating (thrid season) after getting dental gas, a cameo appearance by Yogi Bear and Boo Boo. Fifth season and more and more elements of other extremely popular TV shows and extremely popular 1960s popular culture elements are introducted into the cartoon: Ann-Margret, "Shindig", rock music,etc. We even get an awful episode with Sammantha and Darrin from "Bewitched". Elements of "My Favorite Martian","Gunmsmoke","Bonana","PEtticoat Junction","the Beverly Hillbillies", the change in Betty;s voice,etc. The first two episodes of the Flintstones are excellent sitcom! The rest is, well, basically just childrens fare. But that's just my two cents.

Bobs Burgers - TV Shows
I've tried to re-watch this show to give it more chances since my original comment.... except FOX _really_ doesn't want me to see it. It is constantly getting interrupted and moved around the schedule. It's supposed to air at 7:30, but most of the time it doesn't, and there's a Two and a Half Men rerun there in its place. When it does air, it's haphazard. Like last week it aired at 7:30, but this week it airs at 9:30. I never know when it's on. I've given up on The Simpsons and Family Guy, so I'd like to give this show a fair shake, but on the other hand, I don't know if I want to get too invested in a show that FOX seems hellbent on canceling. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 25, 2014, 4:26 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
Chubby Rain, I, too, am glad to see all of those old JumpTheShark comments...I don't see IceMouth (the one who'd announced such on the JumpTheShark or BoneTheFish entry lately but JTSComments, who must be the same person as IceMouth, different account, posted a lot... How about some that just from MEMORY, of my rememered comments from someone on Cosby? (From JumpTheShark, not the full comment). And let's talk about Cliff Huxtable's, or, Bill Cosby's Music. ....Louis Armstrong. I'm pretty sure that he was just spinnin' when he sang "Ain't Misbeahving'". B.B.King...that song was about whorehouses and prostitution...The Cosby Show does have some pretty good ideas in them but they are marred all the same by hypocrisy and by snobbery. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on December 23, 2014, 11:59 pm

Freaky Links - TV Shows
I remember this show and how stupid Fox TV thought we all were, this was around the same time as the "real" alien autopsy fiasco! It wasn't a bad show at all and would have maybe been a hit but too many people were pissed off that the website turned out to be fake and the way Fox tried to pretend it and then the TV show were all real. Ethan Embry was perfect as the dumb ass Derek, you wanted to believe in him just because he was so naive and helpless. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on December 23, 2014, 1:15 pm

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
It was kinda lame at first but the writing has gotten much better this season. Patton Oswalt lends a lot of class and snark as the narrator. I laughed myself sick when the two brothers almost electrocuted themselves trying to de-scramble a porn channel on cable, brings back a LOT of memories, now all the porn you want is right there on your smart phone, too bad, it was a great challenge trying to make out the naughty bits through a scrambled picture! It's a good show and demonstrates that kids and families never change no matter how much the technology has advanced. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on December 23, 2014, 1:10 pm

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
I like how they don't specify what year it is; they just say that it's 1980-something so they can cram all kinds of 80s nostalgia into the show without worrying about specific dates. The eighties were my generation so I can relate to this show more than I could the Wonder Years which was set in the late 60s and early 70s when I was a wee child and unaware of what was happening then. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on December 18, 2014, 6:45 pm

Family Guy - TV Shows
Yeah, it's run it's course and should be axed. But it did have some laugh out loud moments. My fav is when the family was watching Happy Days. Richie, his sister, and mom and dad are eating breakfast and our of nowhere Richie says, "I really like Potsie." Nobody says anything and Richie says, "I mean I REALLY like Potsie." Nobody looks up from their food but the dad says calmly, "You have a homosexual attachment to your best friend. We KNOW." That was so freakin' funny because anyone who ever saw Happy Days was thinking that Richie and Potsie polished each other's banana. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on December 13, 2014, 5:54 am

Oprah Winfrey Show, The - TV Shows
If I do have to give Oprah one bit of respect for anything, it's for not going along with the trash talk show explosion in the mid-late 90's like Springer, Maury, and such went along with. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 11, 2014, 2:20 pm

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
The funniest character is the middle kid, Barry. He wants to be a rap star, calls himself Big Tasty and throws hissy fits when someone points out that he can't rap, and he's rich, Jewish and white, not a poor black kid from the 'hood. I thought the mother was too overprotective to be real until I remembered my own mother talking my football coach into cutting me from the team because I was such a delicate boy. It's a fun and funny show and seems pretty real. The dad strips to his boxers the second he walks in the door from work and parks his ass in his comfy chair in front of the TV. That was my dad! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on December 10, 2014, 4:22 pm
