Battle of the Planets - TV Shows
What was up with that kid Kie-op ? He interspersed bizarre sound effects with his speech. ie: "Garrrk ut doit doit doit. Nice Monkey!" WTH? -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 12:42 pm

Murder, She Wrote - TV Shows
That show should have been called "Murder, She Showed Up." Come on. Every time that lady showed up somewhere, SOMEBODY wound up dead. If I were at a party or some such social function and saw her walking in the door- I would put down my martini, thank the host and high-tail my azz outta there. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 12:26 pm

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - TV Shows
I was a young teenager when this one came out. But after enduring the first one or two episodes of the second season- even Col. Deering's (Erin Gray) spray-on space suits couldn't keep me around. And the Hawk (Mr. Spock rip-off anyone?) character was just stupid and unnecessary. Thumbs up to whoever submitted the reason "Became a Poor mans Star Trek." That one gets my vote. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 12:19 pm

Lidsville - TV Shows
I was about 6 years old when this mackerel flopped into the boat. Even then, at 6 years of age, I thought it was pretty stupid. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 12:12 pm

Extreme Makeover - TV Shows
Of course, this is the show that spawned it's more successful (and somewhat less controversial) sibling 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. For those who may not remember this show: Each week one or two people were selected. These people typically had facial deformities, bad teeth, crooked or big noses, eyelid issues among other things. The mix varied per person. So these people would be taken off to Hollywood for a period of time where they were first worked on by high profile cosmetic surgeons and cosmetic dentists (as needed). They were also given a personal trainer to get toned up and in shape. They were sent to a high profile hair stylists and make up artists. Then they were taken shopping to completely revamp their entire wardrobe. At the end of the show, the contestant would then be unveiled to their spouses (if any) family & friends where they would all oooh and ahhh. I will admit that many of these makeover were pretty amazing and no doubt changed these peoples lives. I think that the ultimate boning for this show came when the producers of this program selected a person for an 'extreme makeover', then after building her hopes up, they reneged on the deal and dropped her from the line up because her surgeries, according to the doctors, were going to take too long to heal. A few months afterward, she took her own life. Television at its most heinous. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 19, 2010, 1:18 pm

Bump in the Night - TV Shows
The humor on this show was surprisingly sophisticated. Funny on multiple levels much like SpongeBob and Bugs Bunny cartoons. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 19, 2010, 12:24 pm

Beakman's World - TV Shows
I was in college when this TV show went on the air and I LOVED it. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 19, 2010, 12:16 pm

Battlestar Galactica 1978 - TV Shows
I got quite bored with the Eastern Alliance. The Cylons were much cooler villains. As for Glactica 1980 being a reason? No no. I just don't think that reason belongs in the list for this show. Galactica 1980 was a separate show altoghether and did quite well in earning it's own Boning. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 19, 2010, 12:13 pm

Adam Ant - Music Groups
Now I will say that he released a single in the mid 90's called Wonderful (I think the album was the same title) that was quite nice and a bit of a departure from his sound in the 80's. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 19, 2010, 6:41 am

...and when the President of the United States calls you a "Jackass"- that's about as official as it gets. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 5:14 pm

Makin' It - TV Shows
With only 8 episodes that aired, this show barely had enough time for a proper boning. What's funny about this stinker is that the theme song to the show (sung by none other than David Naughton- and great song BTW) was on the charts LONGER than the show it was written and recorded for was even on the air. LOL! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 3:22 pm

What's Happening Now!! - TV Shows
Couldn't get into this update show. It all felt forced to me. The magic of the original was gone. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 1:05 pm

Family Affair (1966) - TV Shows
I watched this show as a little kid so I related a lot to the younger characters on the show. Family Affair went on the air a year or so after I was born, so likely I was seeing it in syndication. But the one episode that really BTF for me was when Cissy decides to become a "weekend Hippie." !?! I mean, c'mon! Were people really doing that? I guess as sugary-sweet as that show was, this was likely as close as they could manage to get to a culturally relevant contemporary issues episode. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 11:44 am

Meatballs - Movie Series
When I was a kid, after seeing Meatballs (the original), I wanted to go to a summer camp like Camp North Star. BTW- how did they come by the title Meatballs anyway? I don't recall any reference to it in the film anywhere. Was it something that might have wound up on the cutting room floor, or am I just not paying close enough attention? I digress. But, like Police Academy, some bozo in Hollywood thought it would be a brilliant idea to capitalize on a hit and run it into the ground with lame scripts. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 11:16 am

Mask, The - Movie Series
The Mask was originally conceived as a horror film, but for some reason it was re-tooled/re-written as a comedy and made into a vehicle for the then up and coming Jim Carrey (up and coming as a big box office draw, that is). The first Mask movie was brilliant and funny. However Son of the Mask was just completely unnecessary. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 11:10 am

Dumb and Dumber - Movie Series
I LOVED 'Dumb & Dumber'. The whole idea of comedy about two utter morons getting innocently caught in the middle of some underworld criminal scheme and coming out saving the day was classic. It was written wonderfully, and outside of the two main characters, the supporting cast was not played too broadly and it was perfect. Well, a few years later (thanks to Star Wars chapters 1-3) Prequel mania hits Hollywood and they decided to bring back Lloyd & Harry as teenagers in what has to be,in my opinion, one of the CRAPPIEST origin stories ever written. 'Dumb & Dumberer.' It still boggles my mind how this-this thing even made it out of pre-production much less even to principal photography. The ONLY prop I will give 'Dumb & Dumberer' is that the guy who played Lloyd really convinced me he was a teenaged version of Lloyd Christmas... but that's all I give it. Dumb & Dumberer Boned the Fish- BIGTIME! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 11:00 am

Police Academy - Movie Series
Some movies are perfect classics as stand-alones. Police Academy (the first one) was one of these. The sequels should never have been made. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 10:42 am

Parker Lewis Can't Lose - TV Shows
I remember when this show came out on FOX, I thought "Oh great! A Ferris Bueller rip-off." Also, it was about this time that a sitcom based on the movie Ferris Bueller's DO came out on another network. I watched both, and for me Parker Lewis won the war (FBDO the series was cancelled in it's first season, I think). Unfortunately, the show lost some steam in the 3rd season when they toned the Parker Lewis character down a little. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 18, 2010, 10:34 am

Mama's Family - TV Shows
Now the Mama sketches on the Carol Burnett Show were funny (and some were just down right classic, particularly when Tim Conway and Harvey Korman would start cracking up), but as the basis for a sitcom... you can smell the fish a mile away on this one. There was no need to bone it, it should have gone straight to the chum bucket. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 15, 2010, 1:54 pm

Wings - TV Shows
Never was all that interested in the plots or stories on this show. I only watched it to see Crystal Bernard and Amy Yasbeck. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 15, 2010, 1:47 pm
