Seinfeld - TV Shows
It jumped in Season 7 when Larry David left and got bored, if not sooner. That's when we got bizarre (Or Bizarro) Seinfeld-humor about Soup-Nazis, man-hands, a mystical world of super-hot girlfriends, Bizarro-Jerry-- or the biggest joke of all: Terry Hatcher having supposedly-remarkable hooters. If the show started out with Season 7, it would never get picked up by NBC; but it seems that trained lemmings will watch anything if it has a popular label on it, so the show carried on for 2 more seasons. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on September 9, 2012, 6:20 pm

Two and a Half Men - TV Shows
Season Six JUMPED THE SHARK. The writing just went to crap, and the show lost all chemistry among the characters as they went from dysfunctional to one-dimensional. Jake went from a slacker to an idiot, Alan went from a loser to a whiner, Charlie became a plain bully, and Evelyn actually cared about someone other than herself. Maybe this is why Charlie Sheen got in a fight with Chuck Lorre over the series, but it's a noticeable shift. This might have happened around Season 5, with the "Teddy Leopold" arc; Charlie was having a breakdown over Mia getting married, and then suddenly he's proposing marriage to Courtney/Jenny McCarthy. In any event, Season Six was where it jumped. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on September 9, 2012, 5:59 pm

Frasier - TV Shows
Defintely Season 8: the year of Hell. Stared with "they ALMOST did it--" not only Niles and Daphnetogether in Season, but also Frasir and Roz. I could hear the speedboat revving up, and Fonzie saying "AAAYYYYYY!!!! Where's my waterskis?" Then came the classic BTF/JTS signs: an endless parade of special guest-stars, characters becoming one-note caricatures, etc. Daphne got fat via fat-suit to hide Jane Leeves's pregnancy, it was OVER. Once Niles & Daphne got together, the writers were like "NOW what do we do?" Then it got worse from there. Martin got married to WENDY MALICK??? What, was Angelina Jolie not available? How could ANYONE believe that could happen? She couldn't resist how he swilled beer and watched television all day? Season 7 was about the end of it; after that, the shark was jumped AND boned. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on June 14, 2010, 10:58 pm

Sex and the City - TV Shows
Jaws, what you're referring to is known as "Flanderization," i.e. where a character becomes defined by a single characteristic, which becomes grossly exaggerated, and this defining the entire character as a one-dimensional running gag; it was originated when Ned Flanders became nothing but a super-optimistic, bible-thumping nonsense-talker. . I could tell about this on SACTC when Carrie started bitching about Berger writing about a girl's hair being tied with a "sccrrrEEEEEEEENCHEEEE!!!" But the whole series BTF from Day 1, since the girls were pretty self-centered and mean-spirited, and had NOTHING in common, other than constantly stuffing their faces in restaurant together every say. The jokes also stunk more and more, with Carrie's horrible puns reaching far below the New York sewer-line-- until it really hit the crapper with the movie's "And as Charlotte released her bowels, I RELEASED my feelings!" That stunk in MORE ways than one. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on June 14, 2010, 10:45 pm

Just Shoot Me - TV Shows
Definitely Season 4. The writing went from fresh to suck-fest overnight, being a classic case of "New Kid on the Block" in the form of one Rebecca Ramaijn-Stamos (who suddenly became the cover-model for many issues of "Blush" magazine)-- as well as the production-team, which also changed in Season 4. Characters suddenly changed and became even more one-note than usual, to the point where the show finally earned its title and had the audience saying "Just shoot me." -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on May 2, 2010, 8:35 pm

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen - Celebrities
What happened to these two? Pretty obvious: PUBERTY. They milked the "twins" gag of its last drop, and grew up from undersized kids into adult midgets-- then they went CRAZY... like ALL child-stars. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on October 24, 2009, 5:42 am

Drew Carey Show, The - TV Shows
This show was too self-indulgent to watch, and the plots were too unbelievable-- i.e. Mimi getting a job by threatening to sue if she didn't, etc. No one would work with that insufferable bitch, and she isn't as funny as they seem to think she is, while Drew is a wimp with stupid friends. The main problem, however, is that the show was just a Sitcome version of "Whose Line is it Anyway?" and they treated the "Fourth Wall" like a revolving door, constantingly going into stupid audience-segments, and song-and-dance routines right out of "Fame." By getting ahold of the old shows, I was able to watch the entire series in a matter of days, and it wasn't that funny; every episode was so devoid of content, that I couldn't possibly watch one episode a week like I could with something like "Frasier" or "Just Shoot Me--" particularly since they used a sequential story-arc rather than the more independent format of the other shows. The story was also implausible; first Drew's just a loser-geek, but then he becomes a successful band-leader right off the bat, then he gets accepted for a job at Six Flags as manager-- oh, but Mimi lies about him and he can't get ANY job! The whole thing was just stupid and made no sense. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on October 24, 2009, 12:50 am

Dexter's Laboratory - TV Shows
DL didn't BTF with Season 2-- it ENDED. Season 3 was just GRAVE-ROBBING; the animation and writing both went to CRAP! Christine Cavenaugh does "Dexxx-TER!" like no one else possibly could; it was bad enough when Kat Cressida took over for the voice of Deedee, but when CC retired, you KNEW it was history. The key word in "Last but not Beast" is LAST-- and it should have stayed that way, but the vultures at Cartoon Network just had to beat that dead cash-cow dry of its last nickel, instead of letting it die with dignity. They dould tie some strings to Michael Jackson's dead body and make him dance a few more shows like a puppet, if it made a buck. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on October 24, 2009, 12:37 am

Animaniacs - TV Shows
Like most "Looney Toons," the writers often confused humor with simple sadism and self-indulgence-- and satire with lame plagiarism (ala "Goodfeathers"). It seems Steven Spielberg will do anything for a tax write-off. That's why you'll never see this one in syndication. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on August 14, 2009, 12:11 pm

Steven Seagal - Celebrities
Seagal never had a good action film in his life. As someone who's studied martial arts most of my life, I could tell that he was a complete FAKE, just like every other bully and Bruce Lee wanna-be in history. And the other scenes were just as bad EVERY SCENE was dripping with "Mary Sue" egotism about how "perfect" and "cool" he was, right down to his religious false-modesty, uncontrollable sex-appeal and "kindness to the weak," and his environmentalist whacko-mentality, like a damned "Zen Fonzie--" and complete legend in his own mind. Essentially, Seagal embodies the dark side of the 70's-- that part you didn't get to see on "That 70's Show," i.e. a whacked-out kung-fu hippie of the "me" generation. You have to have LIVED through it, in order to understand just how depraved and disgusting this really is. Also, he runs like a girl who's trying to wave away a fart (or should I say RAN like a girl; now, he waddles like a walrus). -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on August 14, 2009, 12:01 pm

Karate Kid, The - Movie Series
The whole thing is just WRONG, i.e. a kid gets bullied, but he wins against the bullies and thugs, only because some old karate-master comes along and helps him become more violent than they are; any victim of bullying, will tell you that's not how it works in the real world: and so this ends up a fantasy that insults your intelligence. At least the end was realistic, i.e. when you fight back against bullies then they don't always give up and become your friends, they take revenge and just get more ruthless-- like happened in Karate Kid II and III; but those sequels sucked because he doesn't learn anything in them. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on June 13, 2009, 9:51 am

Late Show with David Letterman - TV Shows
Dave was hip, edgy and had BALLS when he was on NBC; he squared off against the corporate execs and never backed down, particularly after they cheated him out of his "Tonight Show" deal and threw in that lame-ass Leno. Once Dave got to CBS, however, he lost his edge and instantly became a total schmuck. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on June 12, 2009, 12:20 pm

Lance Armstrong - Celebrities
So he rides a bike, big dieal! I don't think anything should be considered a "sport" if a chimp could do it better. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on June 12, 2009, 12:12 pm

Sean Hannity - Celebrities
Hannity said it all when he responded to searches on subways and airports by saying "these are different times, if you don't like it start driving." Hannity is a neoconservative fascist and screaming idiot; in his book (the one with the picture of him with that arrogant sneer on the cover), the first thing he does is pull out the tired old cliche of HITLER and the Nazi party in order to define "evil." Gee, never heard THAT one before? How about something original-- like LINCOLN, who was the head of the REPUBLICAN party that turned the Republic into an empire and murdered 300,000 of its people? Hannity is a Holier-than-thou hack, and he represents everything that's wrong with the American right-wing. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on June 9, 2009, 6:04 am

South Park - TV Shows
South Park has Jumped the Shark by Cartman becoming the new "Fonzie," i.e. going from a loser to someone who's "cool" just because he acts like a hateful dumbass. He gets away with everything, and no one even kills him for it. If some little fat kid made you eat your parents, how long would you wait before killing him? -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on May 30, 2009, 1:49 am

Jetsons, The - TV Shows
The 80's revival did the same thing as Johnny Quest: took a classic and made it BTF like nobodys business. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on May 21, 2009, 5:49 pm

Star Trek: Voyager - TV Shows
The show was written as a stupid license to throw canon out the window and serve as a "short story" series, as a Federation ship made First Contact with a different sci-fi writer's crazy brainstorm every episode, which was never to be seen again-- likewise somehow never learning a single thing from ANY of the diverse technology or cultures etc. that they encountered-- yep, to maintain the status quo, every episode ended with the good ol' Gilligan's Island "reset button--" which not only fixed the ship good as new, but also made their findings useless. And when this got boring, producer Brannon Braga went whoring-- turning the entire series into a casting-couch go get his trophy-bimbo Jery Ryan to put out, by making her the "Mary Sue" of the series-- which likewise served to do nothing but showcase her monster-butt and be the center of attention, but somehow never have sex with anyone because she's too good for it. This ruined it for any remaining Star Trek fans in the audience-- both of them! -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on May 10, 2009, 9:05 pm

Star Trek: Voyager - TV Shows
Jumped on Day 1-- the ship gets kidnapped by an alien who looks like the banjo-playing kid from "Deliverance?" And right next to Deep Space Nine-- what is it about that area of the galaxy, that makes it so attractive to wormhole-making aliens on the other side of the galaxy? And even if you want to violate the Prime Directive and intervene in affairs of other worlds: instead of DESTROYING the wormhole-gizmo, why not just disable the Kazon ships, and then take the gizmo for yourself? And what's with the Kazon ships having a CHANCE against Voyager, when they don't even have warp-drive, transporters, replicators etc? HELLO? Obviously, this series was simply intended as a paradise for off-canon writing, i.e. for the writers to go stark raving mad, throwing out all the rules and canon of Star Trek, in order to indulge every crackpot short-story that the idiots think is "cool" and suddenly make it official Star Trek canon, no matter how ridiculous it was. This got old REALLY fast, and so before long the entire series became simply a casting-couch for Rick Berman to showcase his favorite bimbo, Jeri Ryan, to put out for him-- after she got tired of being a trophy-wife for her congressman-husband who proved to be a perv, and so she decided that she "deserved" a starring role as a "Mary Sue" character on a world-famous franchise-show, upstaging the entire rest of the cast by taking over center-stage; since after all, she thought she was a scientific genius as well as a legendary actress (despite having zero evidence to suggest either one). The move proved a fantastic success-- for her and Rick Berman anyway, at only the expense of just the series, and any remaining actual "Star Trek" fans in the audience. But the ratings went up-- which is like Gary Coleman growing an inch taller: and with the type of viewer who tuned in to watch the name changed from "Voyager" to "Voyeur," since every shot was entirely dedicated to showcasing Jeri Ryan and her monster butt. Guess the Borg won. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on May 10, 2009, 8:41 pm

Harrison Ford - Celebrities
Day 1. He can't act, he talks like his lips are paralyzed, he's a royal smart-ass, and it's a mystery how he ever got famous in the first place. The only scene I could stand him, was when he got tortured by Darth Vader and, did his best acting when he got turned into a frozen ham. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on May 10, 2009, 1:48 pm

Rush Limbaugh - Celebrities
Limbaugh is a real-life Eric Cartman: i.e. a fat, ugly, self-hating bigot and hate-monger of Germanic descent, who believes that he's somehow smarter and superior to everyone else without doing any real work to earn it. He BTF when he was a discovered drug-addict, and he proved himself a hate-monger when he said that "discovery of a gay gene would lead to abortions of any fetus discovered with it, just like if it was going to be an ethnic minority." Then he proceeded to list details, saying "if you knew it was going to be an ugly freckled redhead" etc. That's EXACTLY what Cartman said in the South Park episode "Ginger Kids!" This is no different from saying "ugly black African," or "ugly big-nosed Jew," or "ugly slant-eyed Asian" or similar ethnic description; it's just that Limbaugh is also a COWARD who gets rich by casting popular slurs at people whom he thinks can't hurt him. Basically he's comparing homosexuality to ethnicity-- and saying that they're BOTH A DEFECT! Limbaugh is an obvious hate-monger who simply HIDES his hate, so that his fans can DENY it-- but there's no way he can be on the radio for 20+ years and still hide his hate- any more than he can hide his drug-addiction. He simply VALIDATES popular right-wing hate of the GOP, making them feel superior at other people's expense-- and he denies it, by simply calling himself "politically incorrect." Like all successful haters, he starts out by making some sense, then gradually catering to popular hate of one group: and to deny this, is also to deny that he's a drug addict. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on May 10, 2009, 1:37 pm
