Miss Congeniality - Movie Series
The absence of Benjamin Bratt was far from the only problem that MC2 had; it was only the most glaring. The movie was just lackluster overall. As Raj put it on The Big Bang Theory, "You know a movie's bad when my homegirl Sandy B can't save it." -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 11, 2016, 9:09 pm

Are We There Yet? - Movie Series
At first glance, Ice Cube as a comedic actor seemed like a bit of a stretch, but it worked well enough that the first movie turned out to be pretty good. However, the second movie basically recycled the same comedy memes and they got real old REAL fast. For instance, the kids laughing every time something bad happened to Nick got old after the first few minutes of the sequel, and actually, the schtick was already getting old before the original was over. Like Weekend at Bernie's, this concept only had one movie in it. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 9, 2016, 10:26 pm

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
After several attempts to contact the webmaster, there has been some progress with the "invalid characters" issue. As of now, the filter is still having problems with apostrophes. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on January 28, 2016, 9:41 am

Major League Baseball - Random Topics
Some friends of mine who have been watching baseball a lot longer and a lot more closely than I have say that the 1994 strike was a tipping point from which the game still has not recovered. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on December 14, 2015, 8:06 am

How I Met Your Mother - TV Shows
@ChubbyRain (3/25/09): Actually, I think that NPH's playing a womanizer on the show while being gay in real life speaks well of his acting ability. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on July 20, 2015, 8:00 am

I Love Lucy - TV Shows
The ill will (to put it VERY mildly) between Vance and Frawley was mutual. Professionals that they were, though, they did the job anyway. Just one of the reasons why the show still rocks. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on July 20, 2015, 7:57 am

Domino's Pizza - Random Topics
Sad to say, but with the name change (dropping "Pizza") and bragging on how they now feature a variety of other foods such as sandwiches and pasta, Domino's has forgotten how to make a decent pizza. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on April 13, 2015, 7:27 am

CHiPs - TV Shows
MeTV has been cycling through CHiPs for the last few months, and we've noticed that the early seasons were better than the later ones. The show was at its best when the guys were focusing on cop stuff and lagged when they got sidetracked by all the "extracurricular" activities. In other words, the "Disco Dancing" reason. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on March 29, 2015, 12:32 am

Better Call Saul - TV Shows

Danny Masterson - Celebrities
I was inclined to cut Masterson some slack for having been born into $cientology, and therefore not having had a true choice regarding whether or not to follow it. However, with his recent pfofanity-laden defense of the Hubbard $cam, he's earned the automatic fish-boning in his own right: https://celebrity.yahoo.com/blogs/celeb-news/danny-masterson-scientology-182855630.html -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on February 13, 2015, 10:11 am

Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels - TV Shows
I remember seeing this one when I was a kid. I thought it was cool when Captain Caveman was eating things, pulling objects (not always useful) out of his fur, and beating people up; and that it sucked when the girls were fawning and gushing over him ("Oooooohhhhh, Cavey!!"). All in all, though, it was OK. Its being a knock-off of Scooby-Doo didn't bother me much, as there were a BUNCH of those around back in the day. What stood out to me was that it was an obvious (even to nin-year-old me) knock-off of Charlie's Angels, but I don't remember seeing that as a bad thing, just interesting. In retrospect, though, it's clear that it was intended to ride Charlie's coattails to ratings success. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 28, 2014, 7:24 am

Far Out Space Nuts - TV Shows
For years, I've been trying to remember what the name of this show was ... I did see some episodes when it aired in the '70s and about all I remember it was that it was generally corny and had the opening sequence with the dimmer of the two main characters mishearing "lunch" as "launch". I think the question even stumped Yahoo Answers, but props on BTF for coming through! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 8, 2014, 7:03 am

Three's Company - TV Shows
Three's Company never was, isn't, and never should be considered a source of highbrow humor. The show was obviously far more inclined toward slapstick humor and double-entendre, and for the most part, it worked quite well. However, the episodes with Jenilee Harrison pushed the slapstick angle so hard it just became ludicrous. Cindy's klutziness got real old REAL fast. For that reason, to cite "Chrissy leaves" as the BTF point is a fair statement as far as it goes. To really be fair, though, you'd have to say that while the show boned when Chrissy left, it de-boned when Terri arrived and Cindy started being phased out. Once Terri's character was established and Cindy was gone, it seemed like the show had found its way again. Also, as ParkerTillman alluded, it certainly didn't hurt that Priscilla Barnes was far hotter than Somers or Harrison! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 5, 2014, 12:20 am

Robonic Stooges, The - TV Shows
I remember seeing this cartoon back when it originally aired, and even back then I thought it was stupid. Anyone who's seen any of the REAL Stooges' work will realize in a heartbeat that this cartoon is crap. @elainewood: Actually, in the 1970s, it would have more likely been pot (or acid) than coke, but your point is well taken all the same. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 1, 2014, 10:48 pm

Growing Pains - TV Shows
@martymarty: Boner's real name was Vincent Stabone. I don't think they ever said when or how he got the nickname, but I had the impression it was well-established by the time he was in high school. We could therefore conjecture that he got the nickname in junior high. Considering the typical mentality of junior-high kids in the 1980s -- and I oughtta know, I was one of 'em -- "Stabone" to "Boner" wasn't just possible, it was INEVITABLE! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 1, 2014, 10:43 pm

Highlander - Movie Series
In defense of Highlander 2, the film was beset with budgetary difficulties which stemmed from runaway inflation in Argentina (the filming location) while the movie was being made. Creative control over the movie ended up passing to the bonding company, which did a hasty slap-together job that became the original theatrical version, which director Russell Mulcahy disliked in the extreme (and that's STILL putting it mildly). Mulcahy eventually released a Director's Cut DVD (subtitled "The Renegade Version") which was miles better, in no small part because the BS plotline about Planet Zeist was excised. The Renegade Version DVD also includes a featurette where Mulcahy provides a more detailed explanation for why the theatrical version was such a turkey. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on February 24, 2014, 11:49 pm

Walking Dead, The - TV Shows
The show gets ripped on for having unlikeable characters, but IMO it adds realism ... well, as much realism as you can have in a zombie-apocalypse setting. Who says only NICE people get to live through the end of the world? To the contrary, it's quite realistic that jerks and assholes survive the apocalypse, too. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on February 4, 2014, 10:48 pm

Capital One - Random Topics
The Viking/Barbarian ad campaign has run its course and is no longer funny, just tedious. (Management note: Comment originally submitted by BrewMaster on 26 May 2012. Re-added following merger of duplicate "Capital One" topics.) -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on February 4, 2014, 10:34 pm

Justin Bieber - Celebrities
Not that it's a BTF moment, but did anyone else notice that Bieber was a dead ringer for Miley Cyrus in his mugshot? Creepy ... -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on January 26, 2014, 12:12 am

Son of the Beach - TV Shows
Still rocks when you put it into perspective. At first glance, the show comes off like a bubble-headed juvenile trash-TV comedy. Juvenile comedy did abound on the show, but what it was REALLY doing was parodying just about everything else on the air at the time -- most obviously, Baywatch and Survivor -- and it did that quite well. Son of the Beach did what it set out to do, and never really had a BTF moment, so by that standard it still rocks. In the interest of full disclosure, this show doesn't even make the top 100 list of DVD boxsets I'd want to buy, but I do have to give it due credit for achieving the goal it set for itself. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 4, 2013, 8:29 am
