Batman (1966) - TV Shows
First off, Batman isn't "campy." Campy is when you laugh at something intended to be taken seriously but which comes off as corny or just plain stupid. Batman was a deliberate lampoon and subtle satire. (Subtle enough to have kids taking it totally seriously, anyway). Why it was so successful among comic and non-comic fans alike was because it wasn't making fun of comics, it was simply presenting the established comic book form in live-action format. That juxtaposition alone makes for some humor. For example, in comics we take lettered sound-effects completely for granted. (And the "CRASH!", "BAM!", "WHAM!" are present even in the most seriously handled titles.) They serve to expand on what is inherently a silent medium; like the dialogue balloons, they add the "third dimension" of "sound" to the two-dimensions of the printed pages' art. All the Batman TV show did was keep the comic book practice in, and the redundancy adds humor without mocking the original. It was cleverly artistic if you ask me. Ang Lee tried to do something similar in his Hulk movie, with less than successful results, but it was interesting and didn't interfere with the drama. In fact, the show was quite faithful to the comic book. You had all the characters present (Alfred was even ressurected from his death in the comics); you had all the villains (in the comics before then, Batman was only fighting extradimensional aliens and monsters, not his classic rogues gallery from the Golden Age); and you had the batcave and the batmobile, both handled with expert style and creativity. Bruce even mentions his parents' murder as his motivation for crime-fighting, and Commisioner Gordon tells why Batman uses the bat motif to strike fear into criminals. It's all there. Instead of Batman being panned as a "non-serious" handling of the character, it should be congratulated for its faithfulness AND for saving the character. Batman comics were selling badly then, on the verge of cancellation. Before Batman premiered, the comics sold "only" about 300,000 copies per month (a number today's publishers wished they had). After Adam West donned the cowl, monthly sales shot up to over a million. Holy (Cash) Cow, Batman! -- Submitted By: () on November 27, 2014, 2:07 am

Night Court - TV Shows
Great great show during its prime. Harry Anderson and John Larroquette are one of the more underrated comedy duos in TV history, and the show itself was so well-written. It was hilarious, had great gags and lines (I'm keeping a list of Dan Fielding's put-downs just in case I ever need them in real life), and although were a few exceptions, it could also be touching and thought-provoking without being sappy or preachy. It's too bad we'll never see anything like ever again. -- Submitted By: () on November 19, 2014, 2:01 pm

Garfield (comic strip) - Random Topics
I think Garfield's 15 minutes of fame were long gone and dead. I mean, the comics themselves were golden probably the first year or two of strips. But if you've actually paid attention, you'll notice that the strips are basically recycling themselves. How many instances have you read where Garfield eats the food and his owner Jon Arbuckle comically yelling at him for it? There's only so many directions you can take that but it gets rehashed a lot. The dialogue has even gotten pale and lacks much wit or charm. Kinda starts making you question a bit of why it was even popular still. The real movie is what really destroyed it for me since I was a Garfield fan up until that point. I never saw the movie myself or it's sequel. I just knew that's when Garfield has boned and really has shown it's age as a comic strip. It needs to go, it's just Jim Davis' one trick pony. -- Submitted By: () on November 16, 2014, 1:54 am

Apple Inc. - Random Topics
Name me an Apple computer where you could make your own choices on how it should be built to operate on specific functions. Like, gaming. I hear crickets. The one and major gripe I have with Apple. Is that they have a nag for claiming ideas that were already done before them, as theirs. Sure, the technology has evolved to make them better. But, Apple wasn't the first. Take their IPod, for example. Basically it's an MP3 portable player that relies on a crappy program to put music on. All Apple did was boost it's space so you could hold more songs on it. That was it. Then they jacked up the price to several hundred dollars. Which leads me to my other point. Does everything Apple release have to be marked for over a grand and a half? even their smallest piece of hardware is within under a grand, but near. You could find so many cheap alternatives, especially when it comes to computers, and they'll function just as if not better than anything Apple has made. Yet Apple fans eat this up and flaunt on how they spent over $1,800 on their little Mac computer. Pfft, I can make a PC roughly a third of that price and it'll function better than any Mac on the market. Eat it, fanboys. I'd hate to be under the umbrella of a corporation that tells me when it's time to upgrade when I'M the one to decide that. -- Submitted By: () on September 30, 2014, 5:07 am

Rap (music) - Random Topics
I've had a phase where I've actually accepted Rap. I've had my select favorites: Snoop-Dogg, Dr.Dre, Ice Cube just to name a few. Lyrics mattered as much as the beats did. Now it has become nothing but flash and complete ego-stroking every inch of the way. If you have ever watched a rap music video. You'll notice that the theme is the same exact thing. You watch one music video, you've seen them all. It hasn't changed in three decades, it just grows gradually more exaggerated every decade that passes. They always claim that they're not in it to make money. That they're in it to make themselves heard and how hard times are. Newsflash, asshole. We know times are hard and if you're not in it for the money. How come you are going off about how big your house is, how many bitches you fuck within a week, how much drug/alcohol you get away doing everytime and how much money you make off of your so-called "music"? I guess the times are not that hard if they're making so much money off of this genre. Which is why it's trash. -- Submitted By: () on September 27, 2014, 2:34 am

My Living Doll - TV Shows
A seriously obscure show that deserves a look, mostly for the interesting (and skilled) performances given by (two of my all-time favorites; Bob Cummings and (the ever elegant and beautiful Julie Newmar). Definitely, a B-level effort by the associated TV station, but, ultimately, a situation in which the final product was greater than the "sum of its parts". Fortunately, the series wasn't 'lost' (which it surely could have been). See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Living_Doll#DVD_release and for free ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ShixDbF_js ). Seriously, check it out. Once you get past the initial (implied) sexual/baby doll presentation of Ms. Newmar, in the original first episode (admittedly, I had some difficulty with that), you'll see a very good premise for a sitcom that was cancelled far too soon... -- Submitted By: () on September 18, 2014, 9:18 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
Believe me, this show was the business in the 1980s. There were exit stage rights, new kids in town, puberties and unbelievable facts. The Cosby Show first boned when another Cosby kid (Sondra) was added. Cosby said they only had four children in the beginning. Then, over time, new characters like Elvin and Cockaroach were added. Cosby went through his black consciousness phase and brought Denise to Hillman. Because of the actors hair, Cockaroach was no longer on the show. The only one with steady friendships on there was Rudy. Rudy never hit it off with Bud, which was a disappointment for all. How were Cosby's parents still alive? How many grandparents were on that show?! The worst change to happen to the show was Lisa Bonet going on to star on A Different World. The show fell apart after that. Sandra became a huge word that rhymes with witch. Theo wasn't as lovable after he hit puberty. His charm wore off. Rudy grew a mustache and Vanessa had her share of terrible hairdos. The fish was tailless once Denise's husband Martin and Raven Simone joined the ensemble. Raven brought nothing to the show and Theo bloomed into an intelligent young man over night. Of course, I was as heartbroken as Dwayne Wayne was over my crush marrying plain old Martin. There were still some good episodes here and there, but it wasn't as good as it was at first. Over the summer of 90, we were informed through TV Guide that yet aaanother person was coming to stay in the Huxtable household. Who else but Erica Alexander as, the never mentioned before season 7, Cousin Pam. She was brought on to be like an urban Cosby kid. The premise failed because Pam's friend, Charlamane, had a voice which sounded like nails on a chalkboard. The last episode aired after the LA Riots coverage, if I remember correctly. Theo graduated which served as the final fact that Heathcliff was an excellent well educated father. All in all, it was a good show, but the show went in too many different directions. -- Submitted By: () on September 13, 2014, 8:48 pm

Monica is annoying. I don't know what the hell the writers were thinking when putting her in more episodes.

News flash, you can't introduce Monica to us as being this evil golddigger villian who seduced William and hates all the Girlfriends, then 3 seasons later expect everybody to just embrace her like she's been their homegirl since Day 1.

Dark Shadows - TV Shows
When I was young, I really enjoyed the show, basically though most of it's run up until at least the final parallel time arc, but in hindsight and having rewatched it, I have to revise that radically, and many fans will probably disagree with me. I believe the show jumped the shark when instead of being about Victoria Winters it became the adventures of Barnabas and Julia. And then several times they attempted to recreate the 1795 story line (the height of the series) in different times, with ever declining originality. It's been popular to say that the show didn't 'really' take off until Barnabas, but after they repeat plots for the 2nd or even 3rd time I started to miss the first couple hundred episodes that had more character build up and not nearly as much supernatural elements. -- Submitted By: () on August 25, 2014, 9:12 pm

CNN - Random Topics
For anyone who thinks CNN is unbiased, may I point you to Piers Morgan's deplorable actions after Sandy Hook? He took to the airwaves for weeks screaming that gun owners are all nuts. His town hall debate, which he monopolized and used to berate those attending with opposing viewpoints, was a shining example of his bias. Even my stepdad, who is a STAUNCH liberal, thought he had gone too far and was discrediting his position by being an asshole. If that's not enough for you, perhaps we can include Susan Roesgen's positive meltdown at a Chicago Tea Party protest, during which she sputtered accusations of fascism and Fox News hate. Or how about Rick Sanchez's attempts to equate pro-lifers to Westboro Baptists? How about the fact that Michael Moore still has a recurring spot on CNN? How about their plethora of left-leaning "original specials?" Yeah, real down-the-middle there. /sarcasm -- Submitted By: () on July 22, 2014, 10:33 am

Battlestar Galactica 1978 - TV Shows
They lost a HUGE amount of funding because Lucas sued for copyright infringement, completely ridiculous, TOTALLY different premise than Star Wars,,,,so funding was RADICALLY cut, this is the cause of the majority of the complaints on here,,,,i.e., little to no special effects, characters disappearing,,,,then it was moved to a Sunday night format where the FCC had decreed that all Sunday night programming had to be educational,,,so no more cool laser fights,,,,by then it was just Apollo and Starbuck ferrying a bunch of stupid kids (Jason, Moonstone, and Starla, anyone?) around, flying motorcycles,,,,and lots of other stupid crap but the station had to do the best they were given,,,,I don't even want to talk about how Godawful G1980 was,,,,except the last episode with the return of Starbuck,,,,,one part that was unintentionally hilarious was how in the voiceovers Starbuck sounds like a polished poet, and the quality of the special effects went down with Cy the Cylon because the suits wanted to have a character that was more identifiable so you can actually hear the actors tones in Cy's dialogue,,,,,never could really get into the new ones, though there were a few good scenes,,,, -- Submitted By: () on April 29, 2014, 4:45 pm

V (1984) - TV Shows
The miniseries was good, they "dumbed it down" for a TV audience with the half-breed girl, Elizabeth "magically" absorbing the force of the bomb. In the book it made MUCH more sense,she was a prodigy, and she saved the day, but by programming the countdown into an endless loop so the bomb would never explode. The TV show boned almost immediately by killing off main characters like Elias and Martin, cheap special effects, Donovan captured/escaping over and over,,,,,we didn't have "Bone the Fish" as a statement back then, but I remember thinking that as a thirteen-year old kid! And the recently-released sequel novels all sucked too,,,,the original novels during the eighties were okay but the CRAP released in the last few years were garbage,,,seemed more interested in talking about deviant sex acts between humans and Visitors than anything else,,,,, -- Submitted By: () on April 29, 2014, 3:03 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
I wouldn't say Season 6 is where it officially jumped because there are some great/classic episodes in S6, like A Stash from the Past, Lies My Father Told Me and Don't Ask Don't Tell, just to name a few. Season 6 is an above average season in general. Honestly, Season 7 is when things got a lot less funny and characters seemed to become complete caricatures of themselves. I have no problem with women cutting their hair, but for some reason, as soon as Jackie cut her hair, it was like "BAM, I'm going to act like a cross between Ellen DeGeneres and Barney Fife now!". I personally think the show should have ended at the end of S6, because the show would have went out on a high note. But instead, it went on for 3 more utterly unnecessary seasons, in which Jackie's character suddenly exists only to pop into a room, grimace and say something insanely slapstick, clutch onto Andy for dear life, and go right back out. She and Roseanne didn't even seem close anymore at that point. Another thing I noticed is that, even though I liked David, he began getting more airtime than necessary (more than DARLENE, DJ, JACKIE, etc) and Mark went from being the smooth bad boy/rebel (think "Fonz" from Happy Days) to being dumber than a box of rocks. But the actual shark jump moment that there was absolutely no turning back from was when the hit the lottery. The sharks had been swarming around for awhile before that, but when the Conners were suddenly multimillionaires the shark was jumped, maimed, and suffered a bloody gory death. The lottery episode was completely uncalled for, unrealistic and it also went against everything the show was supposed to be about in the first place. That was the definite point of no return, and the show continued to head into a continuous downward spiral for the rest of it's run. After they won the lottery, the charm of the show was gone, the characters (which had already started to become caricatures of their former selves) were no longer funny, relatable, and the chemistry that they used to have was absent. Everything was suddenly awkward and no longer even felt like "Roseanne". -- Submitted By: () on April 24, 2014, 11:44 pm

Chick Tracts - Random Topics
A Chick Tract led me to the Lord, but Mr. Chick is a bit opinionated. I attended a Catholic Mass this past Easter, Mary (That's Jesus Mother for those of you in Rio Linda!) was mentioned only once, DISPROVING Catholics are nothing more than a bunch of stark raving Mary Worshipers. As a matter of fact they mentioned many of the same things my church (Baptist)did. They mentioned that Adam and Eve caused sin to enter this world, and all of us have sinned one time or another. They also said the "Blessed Hope" (That's The Rapture for those of you in Rio Linda!) could take place at any time. IMHO Catholics are Christians, they just worship god differently, and there is NOTHING wrong with that. PS if Jack Chick thinks he knows EVERYTHING about Christians there is a little test he can take. Fill an olympic sized pool with water. Put in 10,000 HUNGRY Piranhas (This is Optional but it kind of makes things a little more interesting LOL). Mr Chick will then walk the length of the pool.

Only nitpicks I have is, they made Optimus Prime's mouth look ugly. Everytime he's seen with that mouth, he's just a little hard to take seriously or even know if it's him. The other, is that the human characters are seriously stereotypical and intolerable in everyway. They're all one-dimensional. Other than all of that, it's good.

I disliked the 3rd for obvious reasons I won't state because I'll just be stating everyone's opinions. But, they could've gone a better direction with Venom and the Symbiote/Peter's relationship. I heavily doubt if one were to be absorbed or taken over by a symbiote, it'd make you want to dress dark, comb your hair down, and start dancing shamelessly. There were so many better takes and material to base that relationship off. But they instead went with that for some ridiculous reason. Also, we've known all along Ben's killer was that robber guy in the first film. Entirely un-necessary to pin it on Sandman when he alone has his own reasons already for going after Spider-Man.

I agree, it should've just been left to T2. Those other attempts just fell so out of place.

ALF - TV Shows
Re-watching quite a few episodes of the show, I would say the boning point was towards the end of the Forth Season. By that point, it was becoming obvious that the cast was growing weary of doing the show in the form of not only their attitude towards Alf but in Alf's behaviour. Towards the end, Alf was starting to get far more annoying and even Brian seemed sick of him. An example from very late in the Series run is a Forth Season episode where Lynn is thinking of move out and Alf is harassing her to do so because he wants her room. Given what the cast has since said about how stressful the show was to be a part of, both the level of annoyance the characters displayed towards Alf and his attitude feel like a sad indicator of just how tried everyone must have been of the doing the show. Another example is another Forth Season episode where Alf runs away and ends up with Neil. Alf's behaviour at Neil's place is so bad that it's to the point of being malevolent and painful to watch. Willie, upon finding out about it, behaves as though this is all perfectly normal for Alf. I still do have plenty of good memories of this show. However, I do have to sadly admit that the forth season was the point where it was time to say goodbye and move on. -- Submitted By: () on February 20, 2014, 2:56 pm

Prevue Channel - TV Shows
I used to watch this channel more than any other when I was in high school, mainly for the music that was played during the ads/segments that got axed when it became "The TV Guide Channel" The music was very catchy and I am not ashamed to admit that I would grab a VHS tape and record it whenever it aired. I still have said tapes to this very day! Of course, they had those silly infomercials that I wonder exactly how many people actually fell for them! I liked the "Trivia" and "Family Vue" segments, and also the "Intervue" segment hosted by Jim Ferguson where he would interview some celeb. In 1998, they changed the format making it more fast paced and MTV-like. During that time, they gained a new logo and axed the aforementioned segments. However, TV Guide killed it in 1999! In a nutshell, I am one of the people who enjoys the simple pleasures in life and I miss this channel. P.S. Does anyone know what became of the aforementioned Jim Ferguson? -- Submitted By: () on January 19, 2014, 9:56 pm

Dr. Seuss movies (live-action) - Movie Series
Here's the thing about Audrey Geisel. Dr. Seuss was married to Helen Marion Palmer Geisel. She encouraged him to be an artist and became his biggest supporter, editing his books and dealing with the publishers. She was the one by his side when he wrote his most famous books. Helen eventually became seriously, chronically ill. Meanwhile, Dr. Seuss began having an affair with a family friend's wife, Audrey Stone Dimond. Helen was devoted to her husband, but he refused to break off the affair. Helen, unable to live without Dr. Seuss, took her own life. Google the suicide letter, it's the most humble and sad thing ever. Dr. Seuss and Audrey spared no time moving in together. They married a year after Helen's death. So this widow that tries to pass herself of as some sort of moral guardian is nothing of the sort. She tells stories about him writing Cat and the Hat or The Grinch as if she was there, when in actuality she wasn't. She's not the real Mr. Seuss as far as I'm concerned. -- Submitted By: () on December 22, 2013, 5:40 pm

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
We thought Bush was awful...Obama inherited the title of worst US president (along with an already dismal economy) from the day he was nominated. I have never heard of a political leader like him in my life. There had been some awful ones before. It will be interesting to see how much more stupid legislation gets passed before his time is finally up. We are certainly no better off than we were four years ago. If the primaries were not fixed five years ago (so he could be nominated and elected), I do not think we would have had to experience the endless parade of nastiness he has forced upon the American people. Also, if I had to pick the one thing that irks me the most about Obama, it's that he apologizes for everything. WTF? This man is the king of PC is afraid to have fun doing anything (besides taking almost as much time off from the White House as Bush did, and bullying hard-working Americans). Clearly, Obamacare has proved to be a failure, straight out of the gate. A number of people, including liberals, are rallying to repeal the debacle. He just keeps on boning and boning. This would have never happened with Clinton (or even Bush). -- Submitted By: () on November 12, 2013, 8:26 pm

Three Stooges Short Films - Movie Series
Each third stooge brought something unique and of their own to the act. We always hear about individuality, so why should be any put downs of Shemp or Joe Besser? Shemp revived the act beautifully, but I fully agree that the four, fake Shemp shorts were terrible. I hate watching them and they are shown more than not, which isn't right. Joe Besser was only added because there was still time left on Stooges' contract with Columbia. Also, it was downright difficult to find a replacement for Shemp and Curly. So, don't expect much for Besser shorts. TV at the time was the latest and greatest technology. The Besser shorts were made on a low budget, filmed sometimes in just one day (a few hours), and with recycled footage dating back to the Curly years in some instances (eg. "Sappy Bullfighters" final, released short). Not surprisingly, the final years (production and release of the Besser shorts- 1957 to 1959) were the beginning of the end for the Stooges. The shorts department literally shut down after "Flying Saucer Daffy" was shot. Besser's wife was ailing. Harry Cohn, long time president of Columbia died in February (correct me if I'm wrong) of 1958. Not surprisingly, everything after that with Joe DeRita just wasn't as funny or the same. I could not even watch more than a few minutes of any full length movies made after 1959. The TV revival, if I am not mistaken, probably kept the Stooges going until the end of the next decade, when Larry suffered that stroke. Honestly, there were a few of the Curly shorts that I do not like, such as Rythym and Weep. Not all of the Curly shorts were comedy gold, but it looks like the vast majority like Curly the most. I want to add that 1946 was not a good year for the act. There were a few, weak shorts made before that, but much of the year consisted of bombs and flops. When you watch most of the shorts made and released that year (with Curly), you knew Curly's days were numbered with the act. Again, Shemp's availability and interest upon returning to the act gave the Stooges a much needed boost. It helped into the first half of the 1950s. Finally, in order to watch and appreciate Joe Besser, you have to learn how to make fun of his character. In a way, it encourages viewer reaction and participation. The shorts with Tiny were indeed terrible, especially when singing is involved. -- Submitted By: () on November 8, 2013, 8:12 pm

Pool player, but with the frustration of having to tell Java over and over again that it's OKAY to run and the Captcha prompting afterwards. It wasn't like it prevented spambots or bots at all from coming in. Because guess what? People STILL manage to get bots in there. And that game is so out-dated that they don't bother revising it so people still cheat at the game too to this day. So I stopped playing. Commenting on some articles is a pain because lord behold, you'll find some bigot who wants to argue with you as well as his/her legion thumbing down your comment to death.

MySpace has turned into a ghost town now. Sure, some people are still on it. But I doubt that by comparison they use their Facebook accounts more. It kept getting bought out by people who wanted to use it for some advantage when really they had no idea what to use it for. Now it's currently owned by Justin Timberlake (co-owner) and some media outlet. Sad. The only thing I liked about MySpace is profile customization, from editing background to the tables to the text etc. Then MySpace felt it should be more limited by having pre-set customizations in 2.0 whereas 1.0 is where you can edit anything. The only reason why some profiles look crappy is because people don't know how to edit HTML code or take time to make it look a little nice.

Scary Movie - Movie Series
The first was tolerable because it really wanted to parody Scream. It did it's job okay. Since then, all it cared about was taking quick spoof jabs at everything horror and even a little outside horror. The humor only became amusing to teenagers 12 - 16 until later when the "_____" Movie spoofs began to explode to try and cover everything. Then it became where only idiots laughed at that stuff because the humor was just cheap. Every of those movies is a sign of what not to do when making a spoof film. And almost every spoof film like them. If you want spoof movies that are clever and funny. Look to all the Mel Brooks films. So many people quote those films to death because they were funny and at their time, were considered a little borderline offensive. Blazing Saddles for example. But it made fun of issues you could try to laugh at simply because of how ridiculous the real situations are. Scary Movie and every "____" Movie just derived their material on making fun of pop culture which is practically an easy target but at the same time, take cheap routes to make fun of them which is about the same level of "your mom" jokes or toilet humor. -- Submitted By: () on September 29, 2013, 2:53 am

X-Files - TV Shows
I was a regular watcher when this was on. It's funny, because in retrospect I think the show jumped in more than one way. This was a great show at least up until the 6th season or so. But by that time, a couple of problems had crept up - 1) the story arc no longer made sense after they failed to explain very well the alien rebel thing - in fact IIRC they don't appear again after the Cassandra Spender eps. 2) The soap opera element of the will they, wont they garbage - (I hated it at the time, and I think Chris Carter would have been better off from the start writing the series so it was NOT remotely possible for them to have a relationship). The sudden manner in which most of the conspirators are killed leads me to think that Chris Carter realized the conspiracy episodes were starting to make no sense and he wanted to have the show go back to almost exclusively monster of the week episodes, which are the highlight of the series IMO and where the originality really shines. I agree that the moment the show actually jumped was Mulder leaving the show, though in season 8 having more monster of the week improved things temporarily - but I think the single most upsetting jump (of several) for me was the retcon he did on Samantha. It was other sloppy way to 'resolve' that arc and clean the slate of the show, and I remember at the time fans were (rightly) outraged. Things like the move to LA were bad trends but not jumpers - I remember the California-centric filming locations created problems such as - the setting in one ep being Pennsylvania, but lazily allowing palm trees to be seen in the background. -- Submitted By: () on September 20, 2013, 9:59 pm

X-Men - Movie Series
This series jumped with X3 and un-boned with FC. X3 had a lousy director and an atrocious script that was little more than a list of Fan Boy Wants: Phoenix Saga: check. Sentinel: check. Danger Room: check. They killed off Cyclops and Professor X, had Rogue taking the cure. Wolverine was acting as wimpy as Cyclops when he wasn't trying to get in Jean's knickers, all thoroughly unconvincing scenes because Hugh Jackman and Famke Jannsen have zero chemistry. The best movies hinge on good story lines and chemistry. X1 worked, primarily because Jackman and Anna Paquin exhibit a chemistry that's off the charts. They made viewers care about their characters. Poor Anna's had nothing to work with as far as Rogue's powers are concerned, so I can see why she's irritated, especially given the screen time allotted to Storm when Halle's performance has been almost universally panned. FC also has a great story line, and there's a real spark between Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, making it very believable, that she'd walk away from Charles after so many years, to side with Erik. Now that Singer's back, with any luck, DOFP will be another step up. -- Submitted By: () on September 19, 2013, 11:29 pm

One thing that Fox News has not been doing is reporting on Obama's background and his identity. They don't mention The Cold Case Posse that started out trying to verify Obama's 2011 version of his Birth Certificate and then expanded to so much more as they have been tracking Obama's background. Or that Congressmen Ted Yoho and Steve Stockman have been in contact with Chief Investigator Mike Zullo and Sheriff Arpaio. They also don't mention much about some other topics brought up in right leaning sites. Especially the voter fraud in the 2012 election. They half-assed it, by trying to do a series on voting fraud during the lead up to the election day and they then dropped it after it was a proven fact there were both some odd occurrences in the voting totals in some areas of the country and people were arrested for voting multiple times, plus some voting machines had errors. They also never mentioned about how a network the RNC set up to get people out to the polls vis computer and mobile device was hacked or how people from both the RNC, tea party and True The Vote were kicked out of polling stations and precincts in various cities. All in all they did a poor job with that election. So now there is two outlets on the right trying to challenge Fox in the form of tv news channels. The Blaze and One America News. They don't think Fox News is doing a good enough job or that there is enough outlets on the right on TV. -- Submitted By: () on August 11, 2013, 12:15 pm

Father Knows Best - TV Shows
My gram remembers when this show was on TV and always said how good it was, so I watched a bunch of the episodes on Netflix. Yikes! First of all, the town (Springfield!) seemed to be 100 percent white and middle class. A typical plot involved Bud (the dim-witted teenage son) getting into hilarious shenanigans with his idiot friends. After getting "a stern talking to" (1950's code for getting his butt whipped) Bud will wipe his eyes and whimper something like "Holy Cow! None of the other guy's got into trouble!" To which his father replies, "That's because none of the other dads love their sons as much as I love mine!" Then sappy music swells up and the whole family agrees that "Father really does know best!" Do the same thing over and over and forever and that's pretty much the show! Except occasionally the teenage daughter Betty will do the shenanigans. This show literally had no minorities and it belittled women to the point where I was rooting for the mom to gut-stab the old man during dinner. One episode I saw had Betty demanding to go duck hunting with the boys since her brother got to go. Of course shenanigans ensued and Betty admitted that women should stay home and cook the ducks, not go shoot them. Of course here comes the sappy music and everyone agreeing, "Gee, Betty, maybe father really does know best!" Off set, the actor Billy Gray (Bud) was a pothead. He was busted shortly after the show ended for possession with intent and didn't work for several years as an actor. Another true fact is that Gray holds a U.S. patent for a type of "personal massager." I would have loved to have seen Bud try to explain those shenanigans to dear old dad!" -- Submitted By: () on July 15, 2013, 4:16 pm

McDonalds - Random Topics
Two things first. First: Food Inc. is inaccurate, as many farms don't raise animals or grow food in such conditions. Those that do need to shape up or ship out. Second: Super Size Me is also inaccurate. It's just anti-McDonald's propaganda. The thing is, people don't eat McD's all day thrice a day, so Spurlock's experiment was fallacious from the get-go. He was already predisposed against McD's, so of course he's going to say "I feel sick" instead of "Mmm, this is great". It would be like me drinking nothing but bottled water for a month to show people how unhealthy water is. I'd be saying "Ew, this water is nasty" instead of "Ahh, how crisp and refreshing". That said, the quality of McDonald's food took a nosedive when they were forced to make it "healthier". I know someone who ate there in its early years, and the food was great then. When they got rid of the dark meat in chicken nuggets, they became drier and less flavorful. Thanks, food police. As for mom-and-pop diners, I make it a point to visit them. Their food is sometimes better than that of fast food chains. -- Submitted By: () on July 6, 2013, 3:58 pm

Pokemon - TV Shows
I stopped watching this show during the Johto episodes, when I think it got officially bad. I've only seen a peek of the Hoenn episodes and that's it. I have not seen the Diamond/Pearl series nor the Black/White, but here's my two cents.... It's sorta clear they ran out of ideas for this show early on, they perhaps should have had a bit more structure than Ash, his Pokemon and cohorts of the week defeating the bad guys, dealing with random Pokemon and winning badges///. Maybe that was too hard? Don't know. The first couple episodes of this show were good, for instance, there was Ash's struggles in becoming a Pokemon trainer. There were adventures in obtaining each badge. (Though he never "earned" a couple of them in a legal match) He had to earn a couple of his Pokemon's trust and obedience, like Pikachu and Charizard. Later, he just started catching Pokemon that instantly trusted him further down the line. About halfway through the first season of this show, they made Ash needlessly dumb. He started releasing all his good Pokes' left and right. Haunter, Primeape, Pidgeotto, Butterfree... And the "Ned Flanderization" of not only Ash, but everyone else hurt. Ash went from a slightly cocky headstrong character who was slightly ditzy to just becoming a generic, "plain ol' nice guy Gary Stu" character. Brock's serious, wise, stoic, strategist persona was thrown out and his skirt-chasing tendencies became dominant. Misty went from being a hot head who had hidden feelings for Ash to the "generic girl" character. (I think that was when she captured Togapi). Team Rocket were comedic, but were able to be taken seriously (the flashback episodes about their histories). Later, they just became a duo of bumbling clowns who couldn't catch a cold, with an annoying talking Neko cat (forgot that Pokemon's name. It's been a few years since I've played Pokemon, and eons since I've watched the "anime") in tow. The "cool" characters (Gary (Yes, he was an a-hole, but he had a convertible limo, CHEERLEADERS, and IIRC some serious hardcore Pokemon Ash could never catch, if he did, he'd probably just release them foolishly. I actually thought Gary was cooler that Ash), Giovanni, etc.) were forgotten about or written out of the show. The Orange episodes weren't that memorable. I remember Brock left and they put in some artsy dude or a photographer or something... I dunno... These episodes basically just felt like "Kanto at Sea" to me. They started relying on the same old plot formula and devices for these episodes, which only got worse in Johto. (Ash and Co. find trainer/Pokemon with issue, they resolve it, Team Rocket is thwarted, Ash looses at the Pokemon League. The End). The last episode I watched was about Ash going to the Hoenn region and meeting the default girl character from R/S/E and her nerdy brother. Brock and Misty were both gone, but I didn't MISS them. But it was the same old plot formula from Orange Isles and Johto even then. The interesting new Team Aqua and Magma had to take a backseat crap for the ever obnoxious Rockets. (Why didn't Ash just buy a gun, lure Team Rocket into the middle of the woods miles from anything and.... well, you get the idea...) Ash and Pikachu had no chemistry anymore. Pika only existed to defeat TR in EVERY episode and win a couple fights for Ash. Ash released his Charizard that he'd finally trained after months or years(?)of busting his ass and a Larvitar (WTF!?!? He could've had a Tyranitar at some point!) at this point, and boxed all of "the Pokemon he only uses for the league and that's it (Muck, Taurus... Other Pokemon they couldn't sell to little children I guess?)"... This show was dead by then and I gave up. Or has it gotten better since then? The Pokemon games and cards ever since Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver and Crystal were always classics. Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald did NOT ruin Pokemon as so many people think. It was actually quite good. All those games still hold up to this day. And from the kids I talk to, the "newer" Pokemon games are getting even better, more complex and detailed with Black, White and those new ones that are coming out later this year. Pokemon ABC or XYZ or something...? -- Submitted By: () on July 5, 2013, 11:49 pm

King of the Hill - TV Shows
King of the Hill was an interesting series. It was an animated show that eventually juggled humor, drama and suspense quite well, dare I say even better than The Simpsons, Futurama, and certainly better the Seth Macfarlene series'. Yes, Hank is awkward, Bobby is even more awkward, Peggy is rude and an egomaniac, Luanne is a ditz, Khan is rude, Cotton is a bully and a total a-hole, Dale is mentally unstable/insane, Bill is depressive, and Boomhauer is the ladies man who despite that, it seems he can never get the girl in the end, despite being laid back and passionate. (Though I think there was a episode explaining he never takes his relationships seriously, or he just can't find the right gal, wasn't there?) But I found all these characters funny to some extent despite their faults, most of which are easy to relate to and makes them human. I thought Peggy having her over-inflated ego popped every once in a while was funny, Hank's intolerance of Bobby's beliefs and teenage "experimenting" with fads, music, and so on, and Dale being so paranoid that he barely opens the door to the pizza man, however he's surprisingly ignorant to the fact his wife has been cheating on him for years with John Redcorn and conceived a illegitimate son, Joseph, whom Dale swears shares his blood and spoils him rotten just to name a few. There were some odd episodes I hated. For example, there was that several part story arc with Peggy's skydiving accident. Despite the character development she and Cotton got, it was unbelievable. I think this show started to slip when Luanne married Lucky. I didn't hate his character, but he was somewhat annoying at times. He just seemed like some bum who screwed the system to get every penny he owned. Lucky was wise at times, he also seemed to be a loving husband do Luanne, but it wasn't enough to save him. When Cotton passed it only sunk deeper (I hated his character, but he did give some pretty good comic relief), but continued to be a decent quality show. -- Submitted By: () on July 3, 2013, 1:27 am

SpongeBob SquarePants - TV Shows
Yes, this was once quite a clever show. Before the movie, SpongeBob was a nice, well meaning guy stuck kind of in a "man-child" bubble, who was just misunderstood by his fellow sea people in the earlier episodes. Sure he screwed up every once in a while, but you could relate. Patrick was sorta dumb, but he wasn't obnoxious and pulled off the comic-relief quite well. Sandy was a kickass Texan squirrel whom I could never figure out if she moved to Bikini Bottom for kicks, adventure or study. Squidward was the constantly crotchety, jerk next door neighbor who really just needed some company who could sit through his *ahem* "art" and "music". Krabs was like a (grand)father figure to SpongeBob I always felt; when he wasn't trying to rob him blind of his paycheck, though you could tell he wasn't cruel, he just had a money fetish. Plankton was just there for ironic humor. I remember the elderly "Aquaman + Lad" knock off characters, Mrs. Puff, Krabs' daughter (Why is she a whale?), etc. but they are minor characters' so I'm leaving them out this time around. At the end of the 3rd season this show went to crap. I think it went downhill when they made a "special" about SpongeBob, Patrick and Squidward as cavemen (Didn't they already do that in the first season anyway with Squidward's time machine?). The movie (Which I remember not even being that great) was the final nail in the coffin. The 4th season is where this show died. The animation during the 4th season got pretty flat and just looked poor in contrast to the previous episodes. They recycle plots and have run out of ideas, but the worst offender of all IMO: The characters became caricatures of their former selves, like they did to Flanders' on The Simpsons. SpongeBob and Patrick become complete idiotic morons to the point of it not even being funny anymore. Basically becoming a danger to themselves and everyone around them, just by "attempting" normal tasks. Squidward became the shows' victim character. Again, before he was the jerk next door, now he's living in utter hell every day of his life. I actually feel bad for the guy now!!! Why hasn't he gone on a serial killing spree on the now ever annoying SpongeBob, Patrick and Krabs yet? Krabs is a villain now it seems, only caring about money, and not Sponge or Squid's well beings' on the job. He's not even a mentor to Sponge anymore. Everyone else seems to have not changed that much, but these changes killed the show. I think this is a show that intended to wrap up with the film, but the network exec's, whom make Mr. Krabs look like a reformed Ebenezer Scrooge it seems, said NO to rake in more dough, so new writers, new artists, the show looses it's charm as the old staff have moved on or quit. RIP SpongeBob... They need to quit milking this sea cow dry! Then again, it is just a cartoon. So long as it keeps the children occupied for 22 minutes, it doesn't matter(?) -- Submitted By: () on July 3, 2013, 12:31 am

Never boned. Question for discussion: does the Netflix season (Season 4) get counted here? Given some of the reviews, I could imagine that a sizable contingent of viewers might felt that it Boned The Fish during Season 4, as the tone was darker and the plotting and pacing changed, and the inclusion of some new actors to play younger versions of existing characters (Kristen Wiig, Seth Rogen, Max Winkler) is sure to be controversial. Ironically the exact moment that perhaps was closest to boning in Season 4, IMHO, involves some of the scenes with Max Winkler playing a younger version of his father\'s character (Barry Zuckerkorn). -- Submitted By: () on May 28, 2013, 9:44 pm

Back to the Future - Movie Series
I was bummed when I saw "The End" after the third movie. Remember the event that sent Doc back to the old west. There was some kind of malfunction with the time circuit just before the bolt of lightning struck the car. That malfunction would happen again when Marty attempts to return to 1985. Going over the ravine, he notices something peculiar as the car crosses the intersection, all the cars are antique automobiles! He looks at the circuit and realizes he's in the year 1927! He makes a rudimentary repair to the car so that it can run on gas, at least long enough to get back to 1985. He goes to a gas station to get gas, he interrupts a young couple who kissing behind the gas station. He gets the gas, then exits the station. The couple enters the station, suddenly a Car with Gangsters brandishing Tommy Guns drives at a high rate of speed, they open fire on the station, killing the owner of the station and the couple. Marty evades them, then hops in the Delorian and steps on the gas, a Steam Locomotive hot on his heels. Finally arriving in 1985 guess what? The Casino is back, but not owned by Biff. He also finds out Jennifer was never born! (That couple he ran across were Jennifer's Grandparents). Returning to the railroad tracks, he sees the Delorian destroyed, but then here comes Doc in his souped-up Locomotive. Marty hops in and they now embark on a adventure in the Roaring 20s! -- Submitted By: () on May 21, 2013, 12:56 pm

Ben 10 - TV Shows
Ben 10 was an intriguing concept: a boy gains the ability to transform into aliens via a device attached to his arm. Ben 10 was just the right mix of action and sci-fi, and the villains ranged from schoolyard bullies to all-powerful alien warlords bent on dominating or annihilating the universe...with the means to do so. I got into it, and it was clearly one of the better shows on Cartoon Network. As episodes pass, up sprout plot twists: turns out Grandpa Max, the plumber, is not a real plumber, but an MIB-esque Plumber. It didn't really annoy me, but it seems more like they just took his plumber career and dodged a continuity error by making him a "different" kind of plumber. Then came the point where my suspension of disbelief was loaded past its maximum: Gwen can use magic! Aliens are one thing, but magic? I shook my head. Then, instead of adding seasons, the show spins off: Alien Force. Ultimate Alien. Omniverse. Then, the suspension of disbelief--already under the force of its past-maximum load--is crushed under an even heavier load: Uncle Max has an alien for a wife! Ben and Gwen are the quarter-alien children of their half-alien fathers! OK, Omniverse isn't bad, but all that plot twist nonsense...and it just keeps adding up. -- Submitted By: () on May 14, 2013, 6:01 pm

Boondocks, The - TV Shows
The Boondocks has some epic moments but suffers from recuring lameness probably due to the FCC. I've got to go with reason 4: Wayyyyyy to P.C. Even if that was meant as a joke, it is still very PC for a show trying to be super edgy. If you are going to show racism, show racism. If you are going to show violence, show violence. If your going to tell a mean joke, tell a mean joke. They do all this once in a while but not often enough to make the show watchable. Huey, Riley and Grandad are barely cognizant of the fact that they are very light skinned and wealthy. Their experience is nowhere close to the desperate scrape of the lower classes that they identify with. Ruckus is comic relief but crawls on his belly too much in the presence of white people. Tom is way to square, even for a laywer. Overall, the characters are too much formula and not enough development. The concept of the show has high potential but is unlikely to reach it because its contract would get revoked for some or all of the following: -Joking about corrupt Jews running most of the world media and banking systems. Using that control to pit the other races against each other and uncorrupted Jews. White or Eastern European Jews being racist to Black Jews; etc. (This is a racist show based on stereotypes. But you just can't make some jokes in the mainstream media can you?) -Joking about White people who like Black people but only in small doses or at a "safe" distance. (Any of the White neighbors plus Tom and his wife Sara could seemlessly fit into such a plot line. So could the Freeman's.) -Interracial violence as a complex story line (Graphic depictions of criminal behavior by Blacks, Whites and Hispanics; innocent people being tormented by once innocent victims of racist abuse who have, after long years of said abuse, turned into racist vigilantes. Show Whites, Blacks and Hispanics as recipients as well as perpatrators.) -Rich people of all colors exploiting cheap immigrant labor while pretending to be "making the world a better place" and saying "I'm not a racist. See I'm giving poor immigrants a chance at a better life." Then show uber rich Mexicans and US Americans laughing it up about how much money they make off that scam. (I believe they touched a bit on this subject in one episode.) I get the feeling that the writers of the show both know how to tell and want to tell these kinds of stories. For some reason they do not and the show suffers greatly for it. It seems like someone who controls what gets watched won't let them. -- Submitted By: () on April 28, 2013, 9:30 pm

First of all, the fact that almost no one dies via bullets (a guy was sniped in a season 1 ep in an uncharacteristically dark moment for the show, and of course Fulbright bought the farm, as exactly no one says these days) is genius. People get comfortable with a formula, that's what TV is, your weekly fix, or daily if in syndication or on Netflix, etc. Also, the music and team-building montages were terrific. This is juvenile nonsense, almost insulting at times, unintentionally hilarious at others, but then again, it's a TV show. That's sort of what the best shows are. My kids love this show.

Hank Azaria is talking about the episode of Looney Tunes where Bugs is imitating Daffy and Daffy is imitating Bugs to trick Elmer Fudd into shooting the other. Azaria talks about how he and the other cast members of The Simpsons one day were talking about this episode and trying to do the same thing with their characters (Azaria says trying to do Apu as Mo and vice versa, as his example), and how they just couldn't make the two voices distinct. It was a rare talent that Blanc could do just that: his Daffy's Bugs imitation was distinct from his Bugs' Daffy imitation. Simply put, legendary. -- Submitted By: () on January 4, 2013, 3:12 am

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
One of the things that strikes me odd while reading some of the comments and reasons on the boned when...list is that most of the people commenting have not really watched alot of episodes and just use sites like these as a soap box to spew their politics. If they really watched the show often enough they would know the show's history of lampooning both major politcal partys. Having gotten that out of the way i would point out mini-btf moments (not complete btf moments because I think the show is still great). I had mentioned guest stars appearing too often on the show which is bad, but the worst is when the guest stars get a completely different reaction from the main characters then they should. The first time I really noticed that was on a really good episode that had Micheal Jackson voicing a huge white man that claimed he was MJ. While the episode was a good one the thing that annoyed me some was that Bart thought MJ was awesome instead of mocking him(which is what the character would have really done). The most cringe worthy guest star moment for me came when they had N'Synch on. Both Nelson(the main bully on the show) and Bart were excited to see them. Nothing against N'Synch, but come on they were a boyband aimed at teen and pre-teen girls and not young boys (ok, Milhouse and Ralph would probably like them, but certainly not Bart and Nelson). -- Submitted By: () on January 1, 2013, 5:12 am

I have a feeling if and when he gets the movie out, that he'd end it. I've always enjoyed it when James gets in that mood to review a bad game, he literally rips into the review. Just completely analyzes the game thoroughly, insults it's flaws, and flat out acts out the inner rage we get when playing a bad game or a hard game. But when he started to be theatric about his later reviews, it really boned the fish for me. His reactions are exaggerated, the cursing has really been played out and is taking it's toll, not that I'm offended by cursing. I just feel as if he has lost touch somehow and is wearing down his character year after year. Nostalgia Critic knew when his time was up, I'm hoping James knows the same for AVGN.

SpongeBob SquarePants - TV Shows
I sat through a few newer episodes...they're really out of ideas. The plots are either lame (Gary meowing nonstop throughout an episode for snail treats), predictable (I was able to guess what would happen 9 out of 10 times. No joke!), or recycled from past episodes (Squid Baby was just Goo Goo Gas where only Squidward turned into a baby). In regards to a previous post mentioning Simpsons parallels, there are plenty: the stupid character who gets stupider with each passing season. The stupid character's progressive stupidity so overly forced as to be ridiculous. All the characters getting stupider. Digital ink and paint making the animation go from fluid to "militarily rigid" (thanks to Zombie Simpsons for that quote!). Recognizing themselves (one fish made a reference to "My Leg!" being a running gag). Acting out of character. Becoming parodies of themselves. Trying too hard to follow running gags (especially Mr. Krabs being obsessed with money). Voices becoming more and more high-pitched and whiny. Plots which have no purpose but to keep the show going. I think it's safe to call this new series "Zombie Spongebob". -- Submitted By: () on October 30, 2012, 11:05 pm

Happy Feet - Movie Series
Well, I watched Happy Feet 2. The global warming message is anything but subtle this time. There are also scientific inaccuracies: as "Sven the flying penguin" is described, we see a flashback: polar bears stand on a rapidly melting ice berg, which soon melts to nothing. It just reinforces a scientific inaccuracy: penguin/polar bear coexistence. Polar Bears live in the North pole, penguins live in the South pole. They don't live together in the wild! Also, the B plot line involving the krill is irrelevant. All they do is inject themselves into scenes, adding bupkis to the story. They're more like streakers running across a baseball field, interrupting the game. And they're cliche: small creatures questioning their lot in life. Way to put on that originality cap! Not to mention Sven leads the penguins to singing the Numa Numa Dance song (Dragostea din tei). What were they thinking?! And at one part, I could've sworn I heard the penguin chick singing the bassline for Ice Ice Baby. And the credits are impossible to read. They start infinitesimal at the bottom of the screen, becoming larger as they reach the top. They become barely legible in the middle, hardly giving you time to read who did whose voice. I had to go online to find out who did the voice of Sven! Speaking of which, here's the first plus side: Sven was voiced by Hank Azaria, performing a very convincing Swedish accent. Another one: There's a part where we hear the Russian choir version of We Are the Champions, which is interesting. -- Submitted By: () on October 15, 2012, 9:39 pm

It perfectly points out the biggest flaw with the Simpson's switch to digital ink and paint: "The fluid and vibrant hand drawn animation has been replaced by militarily rigid computer templates." It even shows the arrogance of Ken Keeler (who wrote that infamous Skinner is a fraud episode). He rebutted critics of the show by saying they get too attached to the characters. Well, yeah, if people don't get attached to the characters, then the show would fail. But thanks to the blog, we officially have an accurate name for what was once the Simpsons: Zombie Simpsons. Since the only way to get it to cancel is to make it less profitable, boycotting Simpsons stuff until the show's cancelled might be the 12-gauge shot to the head that takes this zombie down. -- Submitted By: () on September 19, 2012, 2:09 pm

Blu-Ray - Random Topics
Bah. It took us forever to finally dump VHS for DVD; we didn't go for DVD right away because of the huge collection of VHS tapes we amassed over the years. We couldn't abandon them, we worked too hard to just dump them for some format that would/could go obsolete in less than a decade. Then came the day we were literally forced to wean ourselves off of VHS: new movies were released on DVD only. VHS recording ran up to 6 hours, you could record over shows or movies you no longer cared about or needed, and blank tapes were relatively inexpensive. But there were cons: to get to certain parts, you had to Fast Forward until you reached it. And if the tape was at the very beginning and the part was near the end, you'd be waiting several minutes to hit Play. You had to rewind the tape, otherwise if you left it in the middle, the tape would warp right where you left it. Tapes could get eaten by the VHS player. Then, at last, we gave DVDs a try: You didn't need to fast forward to reach the end; all you had to do was go through a menu to pick the part you wanted to see. Fast Forward now had more speeds, and in the time it took to Fast Forward a tape, you could Fast Forward the same DVD about 8-16 times in a row. It took about a year for movies to go from silver screen to tapes on store shelves, but it takes DVD mere months. They had higher storage capabilities and had features not seen in VHS: Commentary mode, animatics (for animated movies), and more. Discs are way smaller than tapes, and you could fit many discs in storage case. But, there were cons: DVD players were pricey back then and DVDs with recording capabilities were expensive. Nowadays, the prices have gone down, so the cons are all but eliminated. And so, we rebuilt our VHS collection on DVD. Now, enter Blu-Ray. It's the advent of DVD all over again, this time repackaged with more memory, and you need a whole new player in order to use it. Nobody I know has one. Plus, with Hulu, downloadable movies, and other competition, there's not really much of a reason to own one. -- Submitted By: () on August 28, 2012, 3:24 pm

Just for the sake of those who will read these comments in the future, it should be made clear that the Germans who ran the Prisoner of War camp, Stalag 13 in "Hogan's Heroes" were not Nazis. They were "Regular Army/Military". Even the rotund General Burkhalter, whom Kommandant Klink and Sergeant Shultz were deathly afraid of, was not a Nazi. Klink, Shultz and even Burkhalter often had disparaging remarks about the Nazis and the Nazi Party. When Nazis were shown on the series, they were presented in a non-comedic manner and were always portrayed as the real Nazis were - Evil. The series did combat this "Nazi POW Camp" misunderstanding during it's original run. The producers and actors, especially Werner Klemperer who played Klink, did their best to make the truth of the series set-up understood. Obviously most viewers at the time, and through the decades that the show has been in syndication, did (and do) understand the set-up or else the show would not have been highly rated in it's original run and would never have made it into syndication. (In fact, the show was still doing great in the ratings when it became a victim of the infamous CBS "Purge" which saw highly rated series such as "The Beverly Hillbillies", "Green Acres" and "Mayberry RFD" removed from the CBS Network as these "rural" sitcoms didn't fit in with the then-CBS Bosses vision of their "Tiffany" Network.) - - - - - As for Boning the Fish? Even though the show was flailing a bit during it's last year, and retreading script ideas, it was still fresh enough and funny enough that it never boned. -- Submitted By: () on July 31, 2012, 9:47 pm

Ghost Adventures - TV Shows
One of the few things that bothers me about "Ghost Adventures" is the over-reliance on EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomenon).

The Ghost just said "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the Shadow of Death"!!!" Otherwise, it hasn't boned yet. -- Submitted By: () on July 30, 2012, 10:23 pm

Robin Roberts. I know she's been a great spokeswoman for cancer awareness, but I cannot stand her. She is just loud, annoying to listen to, and a poor fit for the program.

Price Is Right, The - TV Shows
Let me start off by saying that I like Drew Carey. Although he'll never come close to Barker's showmanship and smoothness, at least he seems like a nice guy(Barker was a sexist egomaniac). As far as the show goes, there are a few things that bug me about today's version. First of all, everyone is miked up including the models and contestants. It was better when Barker would chat with the models on occasion, I really don't want to hear useless banter during the games. Secondly, it's obvious the contestant's excitement is more forced recently. Lately it seems like everyone who comes on stage has his/her own dance. Finally, the show has become one big advertisement for CBS. I swear every other show is flanked by either A. Soap Opera actors, B. Country Music stars, C. Craig Ferguson. Oh, one more thing- I really wish the announcer wouldn't model prizes. It's not amusing. -- Submitted By: () on May 21, 2012, 3:13 pm

X-Files - TV Shows
The story-arc of this show started out amazing. It was simple enough. It involved a government cover-up of UFOs, abductions, and stereotypical "grey aliens". By season 5 it started losing its way and getting goofy by piling on extra elements like alien bounty hunters, aliens disguised as humans, alien rebels, and a very unclear storyline about an impending alien invasion. By the time the movie rolled around and season 6 began the story-arc became shamefully incoherent. It ends with a horribly written two part episode that clarifies nothing and bears little resemblance to the original show. -- Submitted By: () on May 8, 2012, 10:33 am

Strangers With Candy - TV Shows
Granted, the movie did make way too many changes to the show's continuity to be considered a true prequel (such as the Guy Blank character and ignoring the fact that the Jellineck/Noblet relationship didn't start until the episode "A Burden's Burden").

If only they had focused more on the other vampires! But, yeah, the biggest problem I had with the series (which was mostly ok if not riveting) was that if Michael is such a badass half vampire/half lycan, the first of his kind, why does he spend most of every movie getting his ass beat/saved by Selene? -- Submitted By: () on April 2, 2012, 2:22 pm

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic - TV Shows
Having never actually sat down and watched an episode, I can't say whether or not it's good. From what I've heard, it's actually not that bad and does teach some decent lessons but that's it. I admit the characters are cute, which probably helps. As for adults carrying on and on about it, there does seem to be a strange phase going on in the past decade or so where this sort of thing is happening. I.e., there are TV shows, movies etc. that are mainly aimed at kids yet adults are going as crazy (perhaps even more crazy) for it as the kids are. In some cases, the franchises aren't bad per say but at the same time are no where near as good as the hype. Now, I think one could legitimately say that one should be able to watch/read what they want on their own time. As long as they don't force it upon people that are not interested then I don't think they're hurting anyone. In the case of FiM, I honestly think that it's a case of the characters being cute so people like to draw them and make up fan characters. Like with a lot of things, the Internet gives one access to somewhere people can admit they like the show with far less fear of judgment then the real world. I think what happens is you end up with fans that may like the show a little seeing so many others liking it that it opens a sort of Pandora's box. It's like someone making a few jokes that are okay but just okay. However, instead of a few chuckles, people laugh out loud and keep laughing out loud, which only encourages the person and suddenly instead of a few jokes to some people at their school/job, suddenly they're on a stage doing an entire act that really, is just a whole act of the same basic jokes but everyone else is laughing out loud at them so few are willing to stand up and say "yeah, it's funny but it's not *that* funny." That's all just a theory though. -- Submitted By: () on March 17, 2012, 12:36 pm

KFC - Random Topics
I notice a lot of food at restaurant chains don't taste as good as they used to...McDonald's fries, BK fries and chicken tenders, Wendy's burgers and fries, even KFC chicken. I'm thinking the ban on trans fats might be the culprit, but many foods changed taste before the ban took effect. After the ban, the foods changed even more. When canola oil is used to cook food, it ruins the flavor, big time. Peanut, corn, and sunflower oils seem to make the foods taste better. Chick-fil-A cooks their chicken with peanut oil, and it tastes good. They once cooked their fries the same way, and they were tasty...but one day, they didn't taste so good, and we soon found out why: They now cooked their fries in CANOLA oil. -- Submitted By: () on March 15, 2012, 11:59 am

Dawn Lyn - Celebrities
I guess I'm in a unique position here as I actually KNOW Dawn Lyn - she's a personal friend of mine. I should point out that I am British and as such not as familiar as most with Dawn's career. Her brother, Leif Garrett, WAS something of a celebrity 'over here' back in the '70s but Dawn never had the same exposure in the UK. So what DO I know about Dawn Lyn..? Well, I know Dawn is generous and thoughtful - two qualities that seem to be becoming rarer and rarer these days. I know she is modest - she never tells any new people she meets about her acting career unless they mention it first - and she has a genuine warmth about her. I always feel better after having spoken to her. My girlfriend and I have been house guests of Dawn and her husband at their home in Germany and, in turn, Dawn has stopped with us at our home in Derby, UK. We're all the best of friends and en=jpy hanging out together. So how does it feel when I read all the criticism of Dawn? Well, to be honest, most of it amuses me simply because it's uninformed, 'n'th generation bullshit that bears no resemblance to what I KNOW to be true! It's disappointing that people are not only willing to create 'untruths' about someone, but other people are prepared to accept them without question. All the criticisms of Dawn early career can easily be countered. Dawn didn't launch and manage her own career so criticising her for it isn't hurtful to her - it's irrelevant! You're criticising the wrong person/s. Dawn never 'pooped' on a guest star on 'My Three Sons' (I know that to be the case) and even if she did, is it hard to believe a little child might have an 'accident'? You would criticise a CHILD for something like that? Just because she was on TV doesn't mean she didn't have the same bodily functions as any other child? Dawn's relationship with her parents was, as might be expected, different to what most of us might consider normal. Any child brought up in a film or televison studio is not going to have the same life 'grounding' as the rest of us and the parents who put that child there are going to be different kinds of parents, too. It's doesn't necessarily make anyone WRONG (after all, notions of 'right' and 'wrong' are only popular opinions and not universal physical laws) but it does make them different. Dawn's career was guided by her parents and the roles she was given were, likewise, decided by people other than Dawn. I don't like to see any friend of mine subjected to inaccurate and downright cruel accusations and I'm sure all of you would defend your friends in the same way, wouldn't you? If you wouldn't... Well, can you REALLY say you're a true friend to them? I'll probably get a stream of abusive replies to this post and no doubt words like 'retard' will be bandied about, too... Good luck with that, people. I know Dawn Lyn and you people don't - I think that gives me the edge here whatever the smart mouths might say... :-) -- Submitted By: () on February 28, 2012, 4:31 pm

Adventures of Pete & Pete, The - TV Shows
This was one of my favorite shows growing up. It was quirky before quirky was cool. The entire tone of the show was so different from anything else I had seen. Little Pete's adventures were especially surreal (meeting guardian angel underwear inspector, burrowing under the house to escape being grounded, etc). The show was not condescending or forced (like most kid's shows-I'm looking at you Disney channel tripe), and well-written, often surprisingly moving. Little Pete was like a hero of mine, brave and never afraid to try something. Of course I was more like Big Pete, awkward, nerdy, and a bit reticent. The cast of characters were wonderfully unusual. Friends Artie the strongest man in the world, sweet but plain Ellen, adorable Nona with the eternally encased arm, and bullies ever-wounded Paper Cut, then forever moist Endless Mike. There were great cameos by Steve Buscemi, Janeane Garofalo, and Iggy Pop, the acting was great, the humor bizarre, and there was some cool music to boot. One-of-a-kind TV show goodness.

Sean Penn - Celebrities
jconifer, Totally agree. Sorry to have to post a longwinded deal but here goes. The Falklands had been settled by Spanish colonists in the 1700's but the last of them had abandoned the islands in 1811- a good two decades before British colonists started settling there and before the Argentine government had been created. The point being that there had been quite a few generations of inhabitants who had been born +raised there who considered them to be their home but considered themselves to be British subjects rather than Argentine citizens. Amongst other reasons, Argentina was under a horrible dictatorship during that time in the midst of a campaign now known as 'The Dirty War' in which thousands of student protestors [read this part carefully, Penn lovers] 'disappeared' from the mid 1970's onwards and their distraught mothers and grandmothers organized a group called 'Las Madres' to march against the government to demand to know the whereabouts of their offspring! OK, the Argentine dictatorship tried to blow them off as being hysterical crackpots but they risked their own freedom and lives to keep trying to find answers. Then the Argentine government decided to invade the Falklands to boost its ego over the objections of the Falkland natives and quite a few inhabitants were killed in the process. Would Penn and others have preferred the British government to have done NOTHING while this dictatorship ran roughshod over the islands and their inhabitants while he was having "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"?! Instead the British forces liberated [yes, LIBERATED] the islands from the Argentine army's occupation. And the crux of this? The Argentine citizenry were FURIOUS with their government over the many wasted resources and lives that that been lost in this fiasco and TOPPLED it AND they finally actually listened to Las Madres and started serious investigations as to what happened to those thousands of student protestors who'd 'disappeared'. The result? Mass graves were uncovered and accounts of torture and extermination camps and some folks thrown out of airplanes were unearthed amongst other atrocities. So, shouldn't Sean Penn be GRATEFUL to the British government for contributing to the downfall of a dictatorship AND getting the Argentine army to [somewhat] account for what happened to thousands of student protestors or is he oblivious to folks who protest his pets? And is he trying to have Prince William targetted by singling him out as though he's part of an occupying force rather than as a soldier there to help aid and protect some of his grandmother's subjects? -- Submitted By: () on February 16, 2012, 5:11 pm

Futurama - TV Shows
I have to agree with Robert. I was a huge Futurama fan when it first aired and threw a tantrum when it was unceremoniously cancelled. When I heard they were bringing it back I literally jumped for joy-until I saw it. First the disappointing movies. And when they announced the series was returning, I had hope it would return to the greatness of the original. Alas, as the second season of new Futurama (officially season 7) drones on, I am still disappointed. The writing has taken a down turn. The characters are becoming Simpsonized- losing their humanity in favor of gags. The clever, off-the-wall humor of the first airings has been replaced with "the more obnoxious the better" type of thinking. The characters says fewer surprisingly funny lines, instead, spew tired insults too constantly. And everyone is becoming Homerized- much stupider season after season. The episode The Duh-Vinci Code was especially awful, like Hawking trying to write slapstick. The only episode so far that somewhat reminded me of the originals was Neutopia. Clever, bizarre, and sometimes laugh-out loud funny. I still have hope for a better, more consistent season. -- Submitted By: () on February 14, 2012, 10:03 pm

Never enjoyed this show. I didn't find it particularly funny. Delta was definitely the highlight of the show.

Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness - TV Shows
It's not a bad series, but it's got some glaring flaws. Such as character changes: Po's gone from an overenthusiastic kung fu fan to an idiot who can't follow directions. He even does the most idiotic things, such as revealing the weaknesses of himself and each member of the Furious Five (who all act out of character). Characters also try too hard to be funny: for example, this redundant phrase ("I'm gonna squish his head like a squishy melon that's squishy with melon-y squishiness!"). Add to that, Po says "Awesome" at least 5 times per episode. On the bright side, they have voice actors from King of the Hill: Pamela Adlon (Bobby), Toby Huss (Strickland, Cotton), and Stephen Root (Bill). -- Submitted By: () on February 14, 2012, 2:06 pm

My friend's parents are personal friends with the band, and they got me an all-access Canada/USA pass. Gillan is a nice guy. Deep Purple bass player Roger Glover, who spent the evening at a table with myself, my friend and his family at the bar inside the hotel where the band was staying, is an extremely nice guy - he seemed to be a regular bloke (as his countrymen say) who happened to luck into his dream job. Gillan did stop by our table on occasion. -- Submitted By: () on February 7, 2012, 7:50 pm

And in the end nobody gets killed, hurt, or scratched, no matter how big the explosions, how spectacular the car wrecks, or how thick the hail of bullets.

Kolchak: The Night Stalker - TV Shows
To anyone who grew up in the 70's as I did, this show will probably stick out in your mind as one of the most original horror flicks of it's time due to it's original themes and the charismatic Darren McGavin, who played Carl Kolchak to clumsy and rumpled perfection. One of the long-standing ironies of the show was that no matter how many monsters he fought or how much evidence gathered, no one believed him, so the poor guy trudged on alone each week. As a kid of 15, Night Stalker was the 70's version of X-Files and Buffy, only IMO it was MORE suspenseful than those two shows in this regards: Kolchak never carried a gun (like Mulder or Scully) nor did he have super powers (like Buffy), the dude was also middle-aged, in questionable shape, and was clumsy as hell. When he took on a monster all he had was his wits, maybe some homemade weapon, and his bungling courage. It's a miracle this guy wasn't turned into monster food in the first few episodes. This show may seem cheesy by today's standards but what it lacked in special effects it more than made up for with terrific acting, not only by the inimitable McGavin himself, but by a great ensemble cast, and this to me was one of the show's appeal. I'll admit that not all the episodes were great (some were even lame), but overall it was one of the most suspenseful shows of it's time. Absolutely loved this show as a teenager and don't think it ever jumped. Still watch it occasionally now and it's held up pretty well over the years. My favorite episode: Horror In The Heights. -- Submitted By: () on January 26, 2012, 6:51 pm

Earth Day - Random Topics
Travaltron, I have to admit that I'd never heard of Ira Einhorn's association with the first Earth Day organizers. I've spent some time looking up primary sources since you mentioned this and, to the best of my comprehension, it seems he was the emcee of that first rally [and he HAD been a bigwig in Philadelphia counterculture circles prior to that]. It wouldn't be the first (or last) time an organization gravely erred by thinking a loudmouth would be beneficial in helping to jumpstart a cause. How could someone emcee an event without having any part in helping to organize it? Instead of saying Einhorn hadn't had anything to do with it, I think it would have been far better had they just lumped it and said [at his trial] 'Yeah, we made a horrible mistake in choosing him to emcee the thing and we're sorry he used that clout to help seduce a trusting girl whom he evidently would murder and stuff in a trunk!' It was hardly the first [or last time] an organization of any stripe has believed that having an obnoxious loudmouth at the front of the ranks would only have positive benefits [rarely if ever does this happen]. I am not an Earth Day supporter or organizer but I DO believe that we as individuals do need to consider what's best for the environment because we're on a planet with 7 billion other people and counting with ever decreasing resources,etc. I agree that some environmentalists have had rather skewed priorities, DolFan[e.g. the lightbulbs]. In addition to the BP Oil Spill Disaster nonaction, I'd also like to add something a little closer to home- the TVA Kingston Fossil Plant Coal Slurry Spill that ruined many acres and private homes- the environmental effects still are being felt. Yet, despite this disaster from the leaking coal ash pond, there's been no call to transfer slurry from other existing ponds near residential areas to safer containments even though this disaster proved this method extremely unsafe and doomed to failure without constant and proper human maintence. I guess the point I'm making is that regardless of the poor judgments/whacked priorities of some of the higher ups, I believe it's important for us to consider what we each can do to help keep as much of our planet as habitable for as long as possible. I mean, doing nothing and pretending there are no consequences of pollution makes as much sense as becoming cat hoarders. I think a better approach rather than considering making positive steps the equivilant of having 'freedoms' taken away would be to consider said steps a kind of game like scrap iron drives and victory gardens were to my parents' generation in World War Two with the idea of believing we were GAINING our freedom by contributing to a worthy goal. OK, I'm ready for the negative votes but I thought the above needed to be said.[and I most sincerely hope Einhorn rots in his prison for what he did to that poor girl regardless of anything else ]. -- Submitted By: () on January 24, 2012, 1:07 pm

Family Guy - TV Shows
Never had anything against the show. More like I have something against the people who watch it. I mean seriously, are fans of this show even able to go outside without a helmet? It has no humor. All it consists of are pop culture references (not jokes, they're just references), unfunny political satire (always with liberal undertones), and the cutaway gags! Easily the worst part of the show. Obviously just filler due to the writers' incompetence to write actual funny situations and stories. Fans might think I'm just a prude, but really, I'm not. Family Guy isn't offensive at all, it's actually pretty gutless. Its core demographic consists of 14-21 year old white males. How are racist jokes and/or sexual innuendos supposed to offend 14-21 year old white males? They're not. They're made to give these mongoloids who watch the show a smug sense of superiority, while offending prudes, minorities, or perhaps devout Christians. This show sucks, boned many years ago. Was tolerable until it got canceled, then it just went straight downhill from there. A wannabe South Park, but an unfunny one at that. -- Submitted By: () on January 11, 2012, 9:22 pm

Just not a funny show in my opinion. After all, isn't that what a sitcom is all about? Also, not really a reason for it boning, but why is it on so many channels? It's practically overrun Nickatnite now. It's really sad to see. -- Submitted By: () on January 11, 2012, 9:12 pm

I still enjoy Sheldon, especially when he has scenes with Penny, and the show was still entertaining even after Penny and Leonard got together--albeit not as much, but since the arrival of Amy and Bernadette, the show isn\'t as funny. It\'s only a half hour show, so in order to include everyone, the core group has less air time together and that has ruined that fun dynamic. I also don\'t like the idea of Sheldon having a \"girlfriend\", even though I like the Amy character---in small doses. I would prefer that Amy be on less often and that she not be paired romantically with Sheldon. He is much more fun as an asexual nerd. -- Submitted By: () on November 23, 2011, 11:41 am

I did like ST4 (aka Star trek: The Comedy), but its genesis is interesting. It started as a cross-over between the Star Trek crew, and Eddie Murphy. Murphy was originally going to be the earth person that met the Trek crew, although I assume under somewhat different circumstances than in ST4! Somehow, in the back and forth of negotiations, Murphy dropped out, the earth setting was kept, and the film morphed into the version that we saw on screen. So, as much as some of you may dislike ST4, remember that it could have been far, far worse... -- Submitted By: () on November 23, 2011, 7:05 am

Johnny Cash has no special significance to me. Neither does John C Reilly. The only "cheesy formula" is an attitude of exagerated self-importance from second rate comedians who try to convince us they're lampooning some "cliche". Actually this is a way of selling crap to the public which lacks originality and just isn't funny. Your babbling about "sacred cows","cliches" is just your own exaggerated sense of self importance. None of these biopics are alike. The writers, producers and actors in movies like this know the kind of pseudo-critics who will buy this as parody of "sacred cows" who take themselves too seriously and need to learn to have a good laugh over their brother's death. Thank God we have John C Reilly and people like you (and the writers and producers) who have taught us all to laugh at death. Thank you -- Submitted By: () on May 5, 2011, 10:33 pm

MTV: Music Television - Random Topics
This channel used to show music videos, but soon they became hands down the worst channel on tv by showing nothing but incredibly stupid reality tv shows featuring untalented hacks, internet nobodies, washed up hacks, and wannabes. They also showcase incredibly lame and talentless (c)rap artists who never even lived in the "ghetto" and would scream like a little bitch if someone pulled out a butterknife in their faces. The rock bands are faggots who call themselves punk when real punks would kick the fuck out of them and lame ass "metal" bands who are pussies wearing makeup and tight pants and lack any sufficent amount of talent other than screaming in a microphone and playing the same 1 chord over and over for 4 minutes. The other "artists" are horrible pop singers who are either underage, have severe gender ambiguity, and lack any talent other than singing with machines and autotune to help them "sing". The worst part is that all of the garbage is targeted towards children, who grow up to be skanks and douchebags. The media watchdogs don't bother trying to advocate against this horrible station because they are too busy rallying against videogames. Even though videogames have been proven to have no violent impact on children. They fail to notice MTV is broadcasting soft-core pornography, violent images, and is teaching children that if they are not like the people on this channel, they are freaks and misfits. MTV is the devil in true living form. One can hope this channel is destroyed, for if not, it will continue to destroy humanity. All I can do is pray for the future of mankind. -- Submitted By: () on January 2, 2011, 6:21 pm

2000s - Random Topics
I was a child of the 80s, teen of the 90s if it's relevant to my views and perspective. I think we also need to remember that our views are often based on our own personal nature, the people with which we grew up and how they influenced our views, where we grew up etc. Two people of the same age could easily have vastly different standards when it comes to when they feel they should have achieved various life type goals (e.g., moving out, getting married, having kids etc.) If the problem of too many people living at home into adulthood is indeed the 'kids' being lazy and uninspired, who is to blame? The kids for being that way or some other external factor making them way and/or allowing it to happen? Don't forget that the lousy job market also in some cases had people that we never able to move out because they could never find a good enough job to afford to move out. However, I think the 2000s also became an excuse decade. By that I mean it used to be that we'd see adversity as something to overcome. Now, people seem to use it as an excuse. As an example, how often have you heard of someone with some sort of mental issue use it as an excuse for bad behaviour? Now, I don't mean to offend with that example, I'm just using an example based on stuff I've witnessed. The staying at home example could be using a lack of income or sufficient income as an excuse rather then perhaps having to find housing that while perhaps is not what one wants, seeing it as having to suck it up and it being unpleasant perhaps being the price one pays to be independent or at least as incentive to improve. I think the end of the 80s saw the end of the playing outside era. Although, the expression "in general" indeed comes to mind. I still for example, see plenty of kids playing outside. However, the temptation to play video games or engage in Internet related activities literally all day is unfortunately there (for adults as well). To be honest, a lot of the problems we've been seeing go to extreme levels in the past decade started in the 90s. Agreed on the politics thing. I mean, I remember Regan and Bush Sr. I never had a problem with them. I don't remember it being until Bush Jr. and post 9/11 that suddenly, everyone was more interested in the parties then the candidates. As for the video games issue. Well, from various things I've read, the problem is that video games give often have a way of giving the players that same sort of satisfaction and accomplishment that comes from accomplishing real world/life goals. The problem is, with video games, that satisfaction is a mere illusion. Another issue with the 2000s is the lack of discipline. I see it not just with people and their kids but even with people and their dogs! An example being people that don't listen to leach laws and let the dogs do whatever they want to the point where the word no had become almost non-existent. I mention discipline after video games because I can't help but wonder if the prevalence of video games with teenage and kid characters that have all this freedom, power and authority (in some cases over entire worlds) and often answer to seemingly no one has given people to illusion that the kids and teens run the world and make the rules rather then the adults (who are often conveniently killed off or otherwise taken out). I wonder if that's also part of why people don't want to grow up. I think a lot these problems stem from a few main issues with the 2000s. The Internet and other technology has made life so convenient and in some cases, effort free to do a lot of stuff. When it comes to having to put some effort to accomplish something, we get all upset rather then sucking it up and saying 'no pain, no gain' or 'you get what you pay for' or some other inspiration type of quote. We've also become a society that seems afraid to put it's foot down and say enough is enough when it comes to almost anything that isn't acceptable (i.e., we're terrified to say NO). We're so afraid of offending someone (although this perhaps goes back to the PC obsession of the 90s) that we say nothing and put up with crap rather then saying even a simple 'now what just a minute here'. I don't mean offending some intentionally, I mean, protesting in a diplomatic way. The sad fact that we did it to ourselves and we're still doing it. The problem is that these problems have become the norm rather then problems to confront and overcome. It's sad and I'm not sure what we do about it. -- Submitted By: () on October 18, 2010, 5:52 pm

Full House - TV Shows
I think the producers took a defanate wrong turn after season four. Jessie and Rebecca getting married should have been that season's finale, then Jesse and Joey move out in the first couple of episodes of season five. Then, have the show follow different subplots which followed Danny and the girls, then Jesse and Rebecca, then Joey. (Although Joey probably could have been written out and nobody would miss him). That would have kept it fresh and enjoyable for at least a couple more seasons. But instead, ABC watered it down with useless characters and increasingly cheesy plots, and it turned into a commercial dreck during season 5 that became completely unwatchable by season 6. -- Submitted By: () on February 19, 2010, 9:52 am

I suppose there are self-destructive global warming believers out there who WANT countless acres of farmland turned to desert, glaciers turned into puddles and oceans flooding dozens of miles inland (and maybe they were amongst those who voted it Never Boned).

Rude Customers - Random Topics
I think the problem is two fold. On one hand, without customers, a business will fail. On the other hand, the employees are often poorly paid, under a lot of pressure from management (who in turn are under a lot of pressure from upper management) and understaffed. They say that it can take years to establish a relationship and only seconds to destroy it. It takes little to piss off a customer enough into never coming back. Then again, if a manager sides with a rude customer, it could destroy a relationship and trust with an employee that took years to establish. I think that both sides should take into account that they're both only human. People go to a store expecting that the employees know what they're doing and what's going on. They expect that the store will have the items in stock that they want. I don't think that's unreasonable. However, employees are sometimes poorly informed and honestly might know little more then the customers when it comes to what is and is not in stock. Usually, they'll have little if any control over ordering or over displays, I think that in the end, both customer and employee sometimes forget that the other is a human being just like them. Both sides are there to get something accomplished. Sometimes the objectives and logistics of one side cause conflict with the other side. Yes, sometimes both sides behave in ways that are not acceptable. However, I think that if we put ourselves in the other's position, it might help with how we react when issues come up. -- Submitted By: () on December 30, 2009, 5:41 pm

George W. Bush - Celebrities
1) WW2: Started because Hitler wanted to eradicate the Jews, scapegoating them for everything. The Germans ate out of his hand because they liked what they heard: They weren't responsible for all these problems, the JEWS were! Hitler went after Europe next. To prevent another war, they appeased him as opposed to fighting him. He rewarded their pacifism by invading them and killing them. 2) War: Theodore Roosevelt said it best: "Wars are, of course, as a rule to be avoided; but they are far better than certain kinds of peace." The world technically was at peace when Hitler was in power (only one side was doing all the attacking), until those warmongering Allies stepped in. No good person wishes against world peace. Extremists/terrorists are not good people. They want their \"enemies\"--us--dead. Are we to drop dead or kill ourselves to appease them? 3) Unprovoked attack against Iraq: If you criticise Bush for his unprovoked attack on Iraq not over WMD\'s, but over oil, then you must be fair. Criticize Clinton for his unprovoked attack against Iraq, too, not over WMD\'s but to draw people\'s attention away from the Monica Lewinsky affair. 4) Iraq with WMDs?: Yes, Iraq DID have nuclear arms. Remember the scud missiles? 5) What spawns terrorists: Poverty...Iran can afford nuclear warheads and Iraq can afford scuds. Afghanistan sells opium. If anyone there is suffering from poverty, it\'s the citizens, and in that case, they should be rebelling against their corrupt government. Why are there terrorists? Because they have been brainwashed by extremists, who, like the Nazis in Germany, were told what they wanted to hear. 6) Mixing religion with politics: Only God can say whether or not he approves of your message or actions. 7) Hussein\'s legacy: Hussein was a \"corrupt\" politician? No. He was worse than that. Hussein gassed Kurds (Look up the Halabja poison gas attack), attacked Iran, invaded Kuwait...yet when Bush goes after Hussein, guess who\'s labelled the \"war criminal\"? 8) Bush\'s legacy: Condemned for delcaring war against Iraq, while Clinton was not. Condemned for killing Iraqi civilians while Hussein and the insurgents are not. Called a \"war criminal\" while Hussein, who\'s done worse, is not. Blamed for \"allowing 9/11 to happen\" while the terrorists who flew into the buildings and killed thousands are called \"brave\" (By Bill Maher, a man with a warped sense of morals). Criticized over the torture of Guantanamo prisoners while the men who beheaded Daniel Pearl and slaughtered other innocent photographers are not. Bush\'s legacy? The short end of the stick when it comes to double standards. -- Submitted By: () on October 11, 2009, 10:41 am

Space: 1999 - TV Shows
Space 1999 is a problematic series to categorize in terms of boning the fish. The technical stuff on the series was extremely good: the sets were up to contemporary movie standards, never mind television, and the SFX and model work was nearly as good (before Star Wars changed the basis for comparison). There were some well written scripts in the first season: reading some of the scripts, you get the impression that the finished product should be incredible. In some cases it was: The standout episode to me is "Death's Other Dominion", which works really well, owing to an excellent guest cast. I also recall "Dragon's Domain", the tentacled monster episode, one of only two things that ever really scared me on television. So, what's not to like? It seems to me that the problems are with the featured performers, specifically, the two leads. Considering that they were married at the time, Landau and Bain really don't seem to have much chemistry, and sometimes, Bain's acting is positively painful to watch. I really liked Barry Morse, Prentice Hancock, and Nick Tate, but they have a hard time working against the two principal actors. Nonetheless, as described above, there are a number of standout episodes -- Also great are "War Games" and "The Infernal Machine". In these two (and "Death's Other Dominion"), good writing and ideas really stand out. Perhaps with some changes to the cast, Space 1999 might have been superb, rather than merely good. I've avoided commenting on the second season. I've seen the first season episodes recently, and my comments reflect a different viewpoint than the second season episodes, which I only saw in first run. So it wouldn't be fair to make a comparison. -- Submitted By: () on July 24, 2009, 8:40 am

I don't know how I feel about JumpTheShark getting canned. On the one hand, TVGuide undeniably ruined a piece of internet history, no exaggeration.

On the other hand, and I'm not trying to suck up or anything, do you really think you have a worse deal now than when JTS was in existence? Now you can comment on when practically anything started sucking. JumpTheShark barely had a page up where you could comment on music groups for a short time before that went down.

Lion King - Movie Series
There is a world of difference between being inspired by other people's works and ripping off other people's works. Also, I already know Kimba and the Lion King are indeed two different stories. Kimba wanted to unite people and animals, while Simba had to reclaim his crown stolen from him by his evil uncle (The Lion King's story is based on Hamlet). The storyline isn't what's the same...it's the characters. You argue that the reason there's a white lion in the production shot is because there's light shining on him from behind, making him white. If the light is what's making him white, why are his face and left hind leg, which are in the shade, also white instead of tan, like the other lion in the shot? And how do you know these testimonials are lies from "disgruntled janitors" or other unhappy employees? But why do I bother? Even if Disney wrote a totally legit written confession complete with a notary that they knowingly ripped off Kimba, you'd still refuse to believe it. -- Submitted By: () on April 28, 2009, 2:49 pm

Lion King - Movie Series
Ok, research I've done: I own 3 DVD's of Kimba the White Lion, and I can and have watched the rest on YouTube. I also own and have seen The Lion King. It's not the same story, period. So far as the rest of what you presented, 1) people can find similarities anywhere. Add that into the fact that in many shows, there are some stock scenes that are commonly used/drawn (IE little protagonist stares up into big antagonist's eyes in defiance, man walking away from building nonchalantly as it explodes, camera focusing in on gun barrel as a shot is fired), and you have less of a slam dunk case than you would think for saying that Lion King is ripped off from Kimba. 2) The testimony of the people on that web page you gave me, I'm sorry to say, means squat. All of the statements are from the Kimba development team, and of course they aren't biased toward their creation in any way, are they? So far as the records of Disney officials "admitting" to ripping off Kimba, recordings or signed affidavits from former Disney execs or impartial 3rd party witnesses or it didn't happen. Testimony from pissed off recently fired ex-janitor X who just happened to be walking by the boardroom when the crime was confessed doesn't cut it. 3) The "white" lion in the preproduction shot, isn't. Take a look at the pic again: the plants in the shot are also white. You shine a bright enough light on an object of any color, and it looks white, this is a fact. The fact that this has happened to other plants in the light that the lion cub in question is in shows that this has also happened to the lion cub. Using your logic, and the kind of evidence you have given me, I could say that Hara and Buroson stole Fist of the North Star directly from Mad Max. I could say that J.J. Abrams stole Cloverfield from the Emmerich version of Godzilla. I could say that Gargoyles was ripping off of X-Men and Superman in places, and that Spawn, the Animation was ripping off of Gargoyles. I'm not going to say that Disney has never done questionable or dirty things in animation or business (among other things, read up on Dan O'Neil and the Air Pirates to see how Disney virtually single-handedly fucked over the entire copyright system, and implemented those 200+ year copyrights in use today). However, there is a difference between ripping someone off, and simply making different use of similar archetypal characters than the previous guy. -- Submitted By: () on April 27, 2009, 10:13 pm

And Home on the Range? Come on, a story about cows?! All these wonderful fairy tales and other literary masterpieces which have yet to be turned into movies, and they think we want to see a movie about stupid cows with a storyline that's lamer than a horse headed for the glue factory?

Castaghast, do some research before you say we don't know what we're talking about. Disney DID rip off Kimba...knowingly, and ON PURPOSE. If you go onto wikipedia, you'll see the original design for Simba called for him to be WHITE! Just like Kimba. And, if you visit this site: http://www.kimbawlion.com/rant2.htm you'll see for yourself that, beyond the shadow of a doubt, Disney DID rip Tezuka. I didn't say the movie sucked, but that the fact that I've been praising a ripoff sucks. And the fact that the movie is a ripoff sucks. I went through the stage you're going through now: refusing to believe it, doubting it, and so forth. Then I learned the truth...and, that Kimba is FAR superior to the Lion King, a good movie marred with the stains of plagiarism. -- Submitted By: () on April 25, 2009, 12:02 pm

Lisa going vegetarian was what caused the show to go downhill. It was the moment when she went from encouraging people to agree with her beliefs to forcing people to agree with her beliefs. If Flanders rammed his beliefs down everyone's throats, he'd be labelled intolerant and they'd get down on him for forcing his ideas onto everyone. Yet Lisa can do it? She would force more ideas onto people as well, including antireligious ones, as seen with the fake fossil angel. Yes, it was fake, but why couldn't she just let people think it was real, especially when it was filling everyone with hope and inspiration? She overlooked telling the truth about Jebediah to the people when she saw how it brought out the best in them, why couldn't she do the same with the fake angel skeleton? What happened to the girl who said God was a more powerful force than Mom and Dad put together, or used zen to help Bart with miniature golf, or told Bart that the soul was the symbol of each of us? I can't stand how self-righteous and holier-than-thou she is now. It doesn't help that her newfound vegetarianism was done to get Paul McCartney to provide voice acting services. I mean, what if they had to permanently change the show from a sitcom to a fantasy show just so J.K. Rowling would agree to guest star? The show just kept going downhill from then. -- Submitted By: () on April 23, 2009, 12:42 pm

Mythbusters - TV Shows
This show kind of jumped for me when I saw how informal the hosts were with their experiments, and how they sort of "rigged" them to get the outcome that they wanted. Example 1) Adam and Jamie test the myth of the man being electrocuted by urinating on a subway rail. Basically, they go out to a rail yard, electrify a rail, and then proceed to stream various amounts of urine (or uric acid or something) on it to see if the stream can conduct electricity. The outcome is that they don't get a a charge conducted until they put the stream about 2 or 3 inches from the rail and dump it out all at once. This is supposed to prove to the audience that you can't electrocute yourself by peeing on a subway rail, because look at all the trouble the hosts had getting the stream to conduct by setting up circumstances that would never occur in real life. Problem is, I'm not really convinced: peeing in a dark, enclosed subway is much different than doing the same on an exposed rail in an exposed rail yard with a good breeze where no one else has urinated before. What about vapor from urine and other liquids floating around that might conduct electricity that would hang around in an enclosed area like a subway? Granted, Adam and Jamie are probably (as in virtually certainly with a 99.999999999% probability) right about this, however the way the experiment was done just seemed sloppy, sloppy enough to leave a real question about the question of the counterclaim. 2) Proving that getting thrown through/jumping a glass window is generally a bad idea. For this experiment, the hosts made a mold of a torso with the consistency of the human body, and covered it with a fake skin that had about the texture and toughness of human skin. Then they put clothes on it, and ran it through a glass window they had set up. The idea was, the model was supposed to be filled with glass, thus proving that running through glass is a bad idea. However it didn't work out like that, as there were only minor cuts to the model. They repeated the experiment several times, making changes such as taking the model's clothes off, running it through faster, etc. Finally they took the model's skin off, at which point they got a result where the model's body was filled with glass. This was supposed to "prove" that running through glass windows is fatal. Once again, I have no issue with the conclusion, as there are enough documented cases of people doing this in real life and killing/injuring themselves to dissuade anyone from actually trying this. However all the above experiment proved was that if I'm going to jump through a glass window, don't do it with no clothes and no skin on, and really, when is THAT ever going to happen? These are just two examples, but a lot of the experiments I have seen on this show could cause the show to be called "MythReenforcers" as opposed to "MythBusters." (The Tesla vibration experiment was another one of those). -- Submitted By: () on April 23, 2009, 11:27 am

Elvis Presley - Celebrities
Sorry, but since this is the BoneTheFish Site and NOT an Elvis Presley Worship Site, I'm going to have to be honest and say that I believe Elvis Boned then got De-Boned. How? Growing up in the South in the 1970's, I can testify that for the last 5+ years of his life, he was considered a has-been and a loser who'd made some cool songs and a few so-so movies WAY back when but, by and large, was believed to have had his best days behind him as he seemed to be doomed to be zooming towards middleaged mediocrity while holed up in Graceland- popping out every so often to do rehashes of his songs in Vegas. Oh, yeah, every so often there was a story of some deluded fan who'd take out marriage licenses and claim he was going to marry them but, surprise, he'd not show up because he'd never heard of them. And, even to admit to being a fan at that time was to invite folks to mock you as a yahoo and loser. But then, it happened! August, 1977- The King Left The Building for the Last Time! Suddenly, everyone remembered how talented he was! Suddenly, he was transformed into this eternally young superstar who could do no wrong! Now, folks were PROUD to be his fans,Graceland became a New Mecca and A Cult Was Born- the likes of which I'd never seen before and would never see again until Princess Diana's death 20 years later! Even as stories of his shadow side became public knowledge, they seemed to only enhance rather than dim the ardor for All Things Elvis! And, of course, there came all The Post-August,1977 Sightings eagerly printed by tabloids that the many fans happily accepted as proof that the King was alive! As one of the categories says, only with Lisa Marie's short-lived marriage to Michael Jackson did many of them realize that Elvis was no longer alive. One can be sure that if Elvis was anywhere on this planet with a breath left in him, EVERYONE would have heard his outrage over that union -even if it may not have been for the 'right' reasons! The fans even managed to get the US Postal Service to quit being so stodgy and stuffy with its old rules for stamps and have Elvis stamps issued that sold faster than hotcakes. The US Postal Service learned a major lesson from that and stamp subjects have never been the same since! When did he originally bone? I'd say when he signed up with Colonel Tom Parker who Pat'Mr. Haney' Buttram said had run a dancing chicken carney stand using an electrified grid! One might say this proved somewhat prophetic for how he may have treated Elvis. Of course, it didn't help that many of his family and so-called friends were eagerly willing to sponge off him for so many years! The tragedy is that Elvis DID have phenomenal talent and could have done so much more had he dumped/kept out so many users. And spending decades not being able to set foot out of a door without screaming 'fans' ambushing him can't have helped anything! So, now visiting Memphis and seeing everyone lined up around Graceland and even crossing themselves in front of his grave as though he was an Apostle, it's easy for me to see that Elvis DeBoned when he was able to go to the next world AWAY from all the exploiters, users and fans- and I'd like to think has been having a good laugh ever since where ever he is! -- Submitted By: () on April 23, 2009, 10:06 am

Dane Cook - Celebrities
I'm really torn, I find some of his jokes funny but there are many valid criticisms of his act. I do find it ironic though that Family Guy spoofed him since they are pretty much one in the same... -- Submitted By: () on April 15, 2009, 8:33 pm

JumptheShark.com - Websites
Once upon a time there was a website. The website was intelligent, provoking, funny and more. Then at the end of January 2009 I was shocked. JTS is now a blogsite. They use terms like "Dancing with the sharks". They are using the good old topics like:A Very special, Birth, Color, Exit Stage Left and they post blogs in those topics. Bottom line TVG is using the popular website JTS.com to generate more viewers to the TV Guide website. I hope BTF becomes very popular and TVG will be very very sorry for what they did. RIP JTS January 2009. -- Submitted By: () on April 10, 2009, 2:08 am

Flash Gordon (2007) - TV Shows
This version of Flash Gordon was nothing more than the SciFi channel trying to cash in on a classic science fiction source that hasn't been tapped since '96. Low budget + Peter Hume = crap! I do really feel sorry for all of the actors involved. I'm sure they thought they we're involved with something better than what actually was produced. -- Submitted By: () on April 4, 2009, 11:54 pm

Scooby Doo - TV Shows
I liked Casey's Shaggy,too, but did you ever see the crossover eps with 'Josie and the Pussycats' when Casey also did their producer Alexander (who loathed his twin/Josie's nemesis Alexandra)? Casey didn't make even the tiniest attempt to differentiate between Shag and Alexander and if you closed your eyes, you'd have had NO idea which character was speaking. Mel Blanc, Casey ain't! Still, his voice helped give the show a great deal- especially since his frantic, high-strung delivery was exact opposite of Casey's 'normal' voice! My opinion of Scrabby's unprintable, I fear . -- Submitted By: () on April 2, 2009, 6:00 pm

To Tell The Truth - TV Shows
I agree with the above summation! Peggy Cass was loud alright but she was funny and actually had intelligent things to say. Then, we had Bill Cullen the Perpetual Nerd who encouraged every kid at home watching because we thought if HE could be on TV regularly, anyone could! Lastly, rounding it out was the Grande Dame Kitty Carlisle who was fun to watch because every so often Peggy, Bill and the host Garry could get her to let her guard down and show she had a mischievious side she tried hard to hide (and it helped her cred that she rode through the Marx Brothers' classic 'Night at the Opera' unscathed). Classic game show! But then they had to revive it with John O'Hurley hosting who seemed to think that being smarmy was the equivilant to being funny and intelligent. It wasn't. And they had to have that unfunny Paula Poundstone who seemed to never ask any real questions but kept wasting her,the contestants' and the other panelists' alloted time by making unfunny dumbcracks. Meschach Taylor was so unmemorable on this that I can't think of anything he said or did on this show- just that he was there. Not to mention that the contestants themselves seemed to be dumbed down a great deal from their classic counterparts. Why did they bother with this? -- Submitted By: () on March 29, 2009, 3:26 pm

Roseanne - TV Shows
Roseanne, at least during the first 6-7 seasons, was a show that the working-class American could relate to. While the humor was never on the sophisticated side of things (reaching new depths during the Halloween episodes), Roseanne's wisecracks and independent attitude made her a hero for the working class. The show tackled many issues throughout its time, and unlike Full House and shows of that ilk, it didn't pull any punches and told it like it was. Once the Conners won the lottery, though, it not only boned the fish, it boned the shark, the dolphin, the octopus, and every other aquatic lifeform out there. In one moment, 7 seasons worth of buildup went right down the drain. Who can relate to millionaires (besides other millionaires)? Basically, that one moment killed off the show for good. Hearing Roseanne say "money is no object for us" was kinda like rubbing our faces in it. Well, they're rich now, so there goes any sympathy the viewing audience may have had for them, as part of the appeal to the show was seeing how the Conners would manage through tight financial times. No problem is too big that throwing money at it can't fix it. Is it any coincidence that once the Conners struck it rich, the show's numbers plummeted? The finale, where Roseanne came out and said everything from the final season was all part of a book she was writing and that the actual show ended after Season 8 with Dan dying from his heart attack, that Becky and Darlene in real life ended up with the other's boyfriend, that Jackie was the lesbian and not her mom, and other contradictions that we were supposed to believe because Roseanne said it in the final episode, was a game try at salvaging the dignity of the show, but it ultimately didn't work. For the first eight seasons, it was a good enough sitcom, but the ninth season ruined pretty much everything the show had ever accomplished. -- Submitted By: () on March 13, 2009, 3:06 pm
