Who said you can't coin your own term? What is "Boning the Fish"? It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite TV Show, Celebrity, Movie Series or Music Group has reached its peak. That instant you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it a climax of sorts. We call it "Boning the fish". From that moment on things will simply never be the same.

Family Guy - TV Shows
Yeah, it's run it's course and should be axed. But it did have some laugh out loud moments. My fav is when the family was watching Happy Days. Richie, his sister, and mom and dad are eating breakfast and our of nowhere Richie says, "I really like Potsie." Nobody says anything and Richie says, "I mean I REALLY like Potsie." Nobody looks up from their food but the dad says calmly, "You have a homosexual attachment to your best friend. We KNOW." That was so freakin' funny because anyone who ever saw Happy Days was thinking that Richie and Potsie polished each other's banana. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on December 13, 2014, 5:54 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Hidey ho, folks! Sure as sugar, the methodical Christmas takeover of the rest of the calendar year is indeed alive and well today, in the Year of Our Lord 2014. Soon stores will be putting up their trees in July and stringin' mistletoe on the doorway by Valentine's! When will the pine-scented madness end????????????

If I do have to give Oprah one bit of respect for anything, it's for not going along with the trash talk show explosion in the mid-late 90's like Springer, Maury, and such went along with. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 11, 2014, 2:20 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
The funniest character is the middle kid, Barry. He wants to be a rap star, calls himself Big Tasty and throws hissy fits when someone points out that he can't rap, and he's rich, Jewish and white, not a poor black kid from the 'hood. I thought the mother was too overprotective to be real until I remembered my own mother talking my football coach into cutting me from the team because I was such a delicate boy. It's a fun and funny show and seems pretty real. The dad strips to his boxers the second he walks in the door from work and parks his ass in his comfy chair in front of the TV. That was my dad! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on December 10, 2014, 4:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Freaky Links - TV Shows
This was the year 2000 and every high school and college kid in the country was scouring the web for unusual and creepy sites. A friend told me about freakylinks.com and I was intrigued. It looked crappy as hell, like some kid did it, but it told a great story about this guy searching through the paranormal world for his brother's killer. NOWHERE did it say it wasn't real or operated by Fox. Several months after the site became popular, Fox launched the TV show. At first they claimed it was a realty-type show featuring Derek Barnes. When millions of kids recognized Derek as being Ethan Embry (Mark from the teen-cult hit Empire Records) Fox said it was BASED on the real Derek Barnes. When it came out there IS NO Derek Barnes, Fox quickly cancelled the show and never spoke of it again. Pretty scummy, Fox! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on December 10, 2014, 4:12 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

I've had Necco wafers on four occasions since Thanksgiving weekend and have enjoyed them.

Grammy Awards - Random Topics
"Anaconda," "Bang Bang," "Fancy," "All About the Bass." Those are just a few of the crappy songs nominated for this year's awards. At least Maroon 5 and that awful "Maps" song didn't get any nominees. I can't stand that whiney voice and all their songs sound the same. When it is all said and done, Sam Smith will probably sweep all the categories he's nominated for, including best new artist. Will he have a lengthy career or is he going to fade away like Arrested Development, the group not the TV show. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on December 9, 2014, 7:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Freaky Links - TV Shows
When this show was on the air I was still young enough to think it might be real. After all the freakylinks.com website was real, right? And this Derek kid, real dude living somewhere in Florida, right? I was devastated when I learned that it was all fake, I even tried to send Derek money to help his investigation. I hope the Fox exec responsible for this burns in hell. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on December 9, 2014, 8:36 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote

Very funny show that really took off during its second season. It's is a tribute to smothers everywhere, Jewish, gentile, white, black, orange or blue, and a tribute to all the kids who suffered through childhood with crazy overprotective mothers! -- Submitted By: (spacer) on December 9, 2014, 8:30 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

Bobs Burgers - TV Shows
Very funny show, laugh out loud funny! Unlike the Simpsons, American Dad, and Family Guy, the dad here is realistic. He's not stupid, not a loser, and not a nut case, just an average guy who loves his lousy burger joint and his family. The situations are realistic, like when Bob tries his best to keep his cool but ends up cussing out some jerk, or when he gets his feelings hurt by his kids but never shows it, just locks himself in the bathroom and cries. The funny parts come from the dialogue, not stupid sitcom pranks, it's a very smart show and you have to pay attention to get the jokes. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on December 3, 2014, 4:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Flintstones, The - TV Shows
I miss you,too, Shanequia! Hope Shanequia's here under a different name.. to Pelijoro's comment that opened this entry-"there was no real angst for any of the characters here"-ever see the cop begging the chief of police in Season 2's "The mailman cometh" on his hands and knees (after a subplot involving the cop-it was an actual Honeymooners borrow of the old "too-hasty" nasty letter to the boss). I think the first poster hasn't seen the first two seasons, though he,too, enjoys the show. It also wasn't drawn like the final seasons or like "Scooby-Doo"(the spinoffs sure were,though.). The earlier were like animated cartoons and there was more angst..see the first season dinosaur racing one where Fred and Barney cry over their bet dino "Sabertooth" losing and Fred gets beaten up and has trouble convincing Wilma of it!(LOL). Shanequia, hello to if you're under an alias..I've been on here as long as you guys.. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on December 1, 2014, 12:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Allen Gregory - TV Shows
Gay rape jokes featuring a 7 year old boy, his gay step dad who is being held against his will and sexually abused by Allen's father who is a viciously evil businessman and world-class pervert. Put that on during family hour and what could go wrong? Jonah Hill is one sick puppy for even thinking up this steaming pile of crap. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on November 30, 2014, 8:59 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

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 - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Avatar: The Last Airbender - TV Shows
Easily the best American animated show with an overall story arc (having a clear beginning, middle and end, as opposed to the concept of endless episodic installments). Okay, it was animated in Korea, but the idea was conceieved and written by Americans. In any case, it's the finest representation that good stories, characters, and action need not be live-action to be good or taken seriously. Case in point: Why did Avatar's creators think that any any live-action adaptation (or rather, live-action/CGI hybrid) could be better what they'd already achieved? As animators, why would they of all people believe that a live-action Avatar would be the ultimate achievement expression of their idea? Anyway, the Shyamalan Disaster certainly sure opened their eyes about that.(Although, their later "Legend of Korra" managed to suck without any help from bad Hollywood directors). -- Submitted By: (SimonWilliams) on November 27, 2014, 1:33 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

Adventures of Superman, The - TV Shows
George Reeves is, was, and always will be THE best and only Superman. Nowadays, Warner Brothers is ashamed of the Superman name, costume, and ideal. May as well not call them "Supermen," though, since subsequent "Men of Steel" have displayed far less than the pinnacle of moral behavior on-screen. They either brainwash their supposed loved ones, spy on them with their x-ray vision, or contribute to widescale death and destruction through careless action then murder their adversaries in the name of heroism. No thanks. George was a hero on and off the screen, supporting his co-stars to the point of putting his job on the line to ensure they had adequate screen-time (or in the case of Robert Shane, keep him from being blackballed), and always willing to lend a hand to any member of the cast and crew. The nature of George's death doesn't diminish his contributions in life one bit. It is sad, however, that even in the light of Toni Mannix's confession, the suicide lie persists. She ADMITTED she had her mobster husband kill George out of jealousy over his impending married to Lenore Lemmon. Though they got away with murder because they controlled the cops, Toni lamented her going to hell over it afterward, as well she should. I think it's about time that the man who embodied truth and justice be given a little of it himself. -- Submitted By: (SimonWilliams) on November 27, 2014, 1:03 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
