Leverage - TV Shows
One of the few cases where a TV Show stayed strong until the very end. It started with fresh characters and an interesting dynamic in the first season, ended with a very memorable cliff-hanger the second season, became really strong for the third season. After this, the show became somewhat a mixed package, mostly because there are only so many ways to con someone, but it was still going strong enough to be a worthwhile watch unitl the series finale, which was so well done that I'm now hopin for a spin-off or at least a couple of well made TV-Movies. Either way: This show never boned! -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on April 3, 2013, 11:16 am

Married with Children - TV Shows
I actually like them most at the very beginning, when Peg and Al were still somwhat in love...but it really boned from me when Steve left. It was such a great dynamic, with Marcy and Steve as the picture of correctness on the one side and the Bundys with their unashamed behaviour on the other side. By taking that away, the show became to cartoonish. My favourite is still the labour day episode, espacially the ending when Steve bites into the burger with the ashes of Marcies death aunt on it with such a relish. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 21, 2011, 4:56 pm

Titanic - Movie Series
@stephanie Actually that isn't true. First of all, on one side of the ship the rule was "if no woman or child is in sight, we allow men into the boat" on the other site the rule was "we only allow woman or children". The result was that on the one side (the one on which men were allowed if no woman was in sight) they rescued nearly double as many people than on the other side, where boats were let down nearly empty. Second, the account of Isaacs survival differ...there is the story of him pretending to be a woman, which isn't true. Than there is the story of him jumping into a nearly empty boat while it was let down (and if he did, he surely didn't take away the place of anyone). But the original account was that he first helped woman and children to enter a boat, and when nobody else was left (remember, at the beginning people were reluctant to leave the big ship in favour of the small boats), the crew man convinced him to take one of the left places. It is documented that the boat he was rescued in was nearly empty. Isaak survived because he wasn't stupid enough to die a pointless death, so I was scorned by the newspapers, but really, most of the stories about him were made up long after the catastrophe. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 21, 2011, 4:45 pm

Titanic - Movie Series
Actually, yes, he has...there is naturally "Catch me if you can", which should be fairly well known, but my secret recommondation is "The man with the iron-mask"...it was done around the same time as Titanic and is one of the view movies you can see that there is real talent in this actor. (And even if you don't like him, don't miss out the movie...lot's of great actors like John Malcowitch in it, a score from Zimmer and a surprising twist at the end...) I'm not a fan of him, really not, but I think it's somewhat unfair how people tend to sneer about him...there are a lot worse actors out there. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 21, 2011, 4:34 pm

Academy Awards, The - Random Topics
It used to be a honor to win an oscar. But it loses on worth each year, because of the blalant manipulating behind the scenes. Sometimes an actors doesn't get an oscar for years, for roles the really would deserve them, and then suddenly they get it for a totally unimportant role, as if someone remembered: Hey, good actor, we can't forget him. And in the category "best animated feature" it's even more obvious. Every year a movie is there which is only half a concurrence to the disney feature, you can bet that it will win, just because they don't want to give the award Disney again. Letting Shreek win over Monter inc. was a farce, since the letter one was technically and concerning the deepth of the story better made. And this year? Well, Disney will win. I think it's set that Toy Story 3 will make it (and considering that they got all the other avaible awards too, it might be even deserved, advertising campagne withstanding), but not even a nomination for "Tangled"? Who do they try to kid? -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on January 31, 2011, 4:53 pm

Wikileaks - Websites
I actually don't get what the fuss ist about...so, the Pope has ancient beliefes, Angela Merkel is like Teflon, the Iran is secretly conspiring against other arabian states...tell me something, I didn't know or suspect already. Really, everything in those documents about the German politicans were things that the German press is writing more or less daily...it's not really surprising that the American policians think so too, or that they are a little impolite about it when they think that nobody beside them will read their words. If anything, it's embarassing (and a little comical) that the big "information collector" USA is unable to protect their datas properly... -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on December 25, 2010, 1:35 pm

Wikipedia - Websites
Yes, I get this...but why make such a fuss about it? The owners of Wikipedia can blacklist whoever they want, just like every shop can "bann" their customers if they like to do it. If they make a good sell if they do it too often is another matter. It's the same with Wikipedia. They either learn sooner or later, or they will hang themselfes. The issue has been mentioned here, it isn't necessary to discuss it to death. It is also not necessary to judge all the admins of Wikipedia at the standarts of some. I am sure, there are still some left who are simply trying to di their best. But with a site of this size, there will always be problems. And to answer the question: I am actually not sure if Bone the fish deserves an own lemma yet. Jump the Shark got one, because the site even manage to create a new term. Is the term "bone the fish" widely spread yet? Are here as many visitors as "jump the shark" had? From my perspective, it is just a new forum...it may end up being just as big as jump the shark or even bigger, but at the moment, I don't think I would integrate it into wikipedia. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on July 15, 2010, 5:28 am

Wikipedia - Websites
I fear, I won't make friends here with this but reading the whole Wikipedia-discussion I feel like I am in the kindergarten again. The name calling (seemingly from both sites) is embarassing.I tried to ignored it so far, but since I now even get posts about this issue in my mail account, it is time to show my annoyance with the whole issue. Like every other forum Wikipedia has its annoying users...especially those, who are there for ages and seemed to see themselfes as half-gods. But the way, user here are making a fuss because bone the fish doesn't have an own site on Wikipedia is just as bad. Get over it! It will happen sooner or later, and if it doesn't happen at all, who cares? Do you really want to get aknowledged by a "bunch bigoted idiots"? -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on July 14, 2010, 5:35 pm

Christmas - Random Topics
Christmas in private will never bone as long as there are people who understand the real meaning of it...I celebrate it every year with a lot of joy, mostly ignoring all the people getting stressed around me. Actually, stressed people are the only thing at all which can stress me around christmas, are stressed people...but Christmas in public is another matter altogether. I remember a time, where it was normal to wait until after St. Martin (a German Holliday which gets celebrated around the 11.11) before breaking out in Christmas cheer. Considering that the Germans have to begun to celebrate Halloween (for whatever reason...I think, they watched to many american TV-Shows) and that Christmas begins earlier and earlier each year, last year I had the riddiculus situation that there was an aisel for Halloween beside one for Christmas beside one for St. Martin in the big shops...each decoratet according to the season. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 17, 2010, 12:43 pm

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
There is a difference between bashing shows/TV-Characters and real people. It's one thing to say that one is a bad actor (or simply the wrong one for a show) but quite another one to say ie that an actress boned because she put on too much weight or an actor because he made a stupid comment on TV. I, for my part, feel distinctively uncomfortable with the "celebrity"-part of the site. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 7, 2010, 9:50 pm

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
Joebagofdonuts has a point, nevertheless. I am beginning to think that including new topics was a mistake all along. The political topics, which only bring users at each other throats, are somewhat irritating, because really, they can't be worded it a way that it would be making sense for voting "never boned" or "day one", because political issues don't tend to be clear cut. Then there are the whole topics where people are judging celebrities. It's turning into a bashing site! You don't know them, so please, give them a break! But the part which make JTS big and which draws users here to BTF is going under more and more. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 6, 2010, 3:48 pm

Voyagers! - TV Shows
Never got a chance to bone! The show had its weak point (they are wearing the same clothes at the beginning of each episode, can speak with everyone even in the old chine aso) and the view on history was very "american" (and sometimes plainly wrong), but it was a great concept and two really great actors. The omni is still the greatest time travel machine ever!And is there a better way to get children interested in history? -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 11:19 am

Anastasia - Movie Series
Not from the perspective of a writer. Like I said, Anastasia wasn't supposed to be historical correct. Lenin as a villian would have been very boring. Rasputin on the other hand, with his mystical touch, is a writers dream. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 11:13 am

Recess - TV Shows
one of the few really inventive children shows of the last years...even the movie was good! It was like living in a childrens world again. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 11:08 am

Teletubbies - TV Shows
Never mind the stupid language, but the sun was really the icing on the cake. A real great idea to encourage children to look direktly into the sun.... -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 11:04 am

Zorro - TV Shows
The white horse and some episodes (like the "christmas story") where a real boner, but fortunatly there was always the good after the bad...never boned! -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 10:55 am

Full House - TV Shows
I can't really pinpoint it, but the show got increasingly worse. It wasn't special from the verry beginning, but it got more and more riddiculus. Never mind what the children did, they alway got only a "talking to", but never really had to face the consequences (perhaps that's the reason they got more and more annoying). And why did Joey live in a corner of the livingroom and Jessie in a former children bedroom with rabbits on the wall, when there was so much atticspace left? -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 10:52 am

Fantasy Island - TV Shows
It got simply repetive...the fantasies where never what the other one expected, what one believed was a dream always turned out to be a nightmare, and if someone felt in love with a "fantasy character" it was always another guest in the end. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 10:47 am

Burn Notice - TV Shows
Booooooooring! Yes, the narration is the best part, but the punch lines are too weak to give the show some quality. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 10:45 am
