Bone The Fish - Most Recent Comments!

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.

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
Patton Oswalt, speaking to the critics of the show that demand 100% historical accuracy said it's not supposed to be an exact snapshot in time. If you listen to the way he delivers the line "it was September 8th (or whatever) 1980-something" you will hear him hesitate and almost mumble the last part because the character of adult Adam is embarrassed by his faulty memory. A running gag with the writers is to put two things together that don't belong, like a "new"game from 1984 with a "new" movie from 1982. People remember their childhood through a haze and often remember events wrong. Technically, this show is not a period piece but a show about an adult remembering the best parts of his childhood. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on February 28, 2015, 8:09 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
You guys act too childish to me. Not everyone is going to like the Goldbergs. To me, it went downhill when items from the early 1990s such as Hypercolor, New Kids junk, 8 Ball Jackets (I pretty sure I saw one) and that Bo Knows shirt turned up in '1980 Something'. I have no problem with the 80s pop culture references being scrambled around because the show is set in '1980 Something'(not an actual year of the 80s). Early 90s toys and shirts do not belong in '1980 Something'. The show un-boned after the Ferris Bueller special. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on February 26, 2015, 7:42 pm

I love how "expecting too much" is a reason for a TV show boning the fish. You guys said it yourself, "I shouldn't expect too much for this nonsense". If you shouldn't expect too much from something, what does that tell you about it? We live in the Google era, there should not be any shows with unreliable narrators in them. You can find anything with the tap of a finger nowadays. It's not like we're actually living in the 1980s and before. It's not like the creator of this show understands what the 80s were all about, anyway. Also, I hate how the creator doesn't realize Americans were still using tools like the Power Glove after 1989. The Power Glove was everywhere in all years of the Bush 1 era, not just '89. Don't believe me? Freddy Krueger uses a power glove to kill Spencer in Freddy's Dead from 1991. 1981-1987 were the core years of the 1980s. The creator should focus on the pop culture of those years and leave the late 80s (they pave the way for the early 90s) alone. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on February 26, 2015, 7:27 pm

Transformers - Movie Series
Here's the thing that got me about the Transformers movies. Their supporting characters in their own movies. The main characters are not the Autobots or the Decepticons. No it's Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, John Turturro and later Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci. They focused on the humans and not the giant alien robots in a million year civil war. -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on February 26, 2015, 6:59 pm

bradrad: welcome to the EerieVerse! It really was a great show, it lived fast, died young and left a great looking corpse. Calling Mars a "dipstick boy scout" was hysterical, and a perfect description!

The way they ended the show was a complete disservice to faithful watchers. When a show ran this long, why did they feel the need to bring Dixie back and make it ALL about Tad and Dixie?

I liked this show enough because I thought most of the guys were cute. My dad like the Corsairs. So, we watched together. I don't know a particular jump the shark moment, but even as a teenager I thought it was so odd that Robert Conrad was filmed so many times *walking away* from the camera as well as his pants always being skin tight. Conrad must have had it in his contract to have his backside filmed as often as his face. -- Submitted By: (vickilaw) on February 24, 2015, 8:56 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
I really like The Goldbergs and don't care if some of the dates are wrong. Since it's a work of fiction representing an adult's memory of things that happened 30 - 35 years ago when he was 11, how can anyone say what is wrong? Human memory is faulty. Maybe the guy honestly got some times and dates mixed up, maybe that's a part of the humor. The show is still very funny and it's a hit so a lot of people obviously like it. A renewal for season 3 is in the bag and I hope they go on for many more. Oh, I had a smother mother, too, so I feel Adam's pain. -- Submitted By: (bradrad) on February 23, 2015, 1:52 pm

@spacer: I'm not an anti-Semite. I just can't get past all of the glaring anachronisms made during this show. They think they know what they're doing, but they don't. I hate a cocky person who tells me something that's not true. They just cobble anything together. I know this insipid show is set in a haze, but who sets a show in a haze?! You have no business putting out a comedic period piece if you don't remember the dates of everything you mention in the show. @martymarty: I refuse to shut my brain off to enjoy a TV show.

The person who suggested a separate area for the old Jump the Shark comments has a great idea. The home page should have new comments, it's more fun for everyone that way.

Really, it's a well done show. Jeff Garlin has been one of my favorite actors for a long time. He's been in some great indie films and also had recurring roles in Arrested Development and Curb Your Enthusiasm. He's perfect as the slovenly, always put upon Murray Goldberg. George Segal is Hollywood royalty, or at least he should be, he's damn funny and has the perfect edge for his role as the family patriarch. I don't get why some people get so hung up on minor inconsistencies in the timeline. It's a great, touching and funny show, not a documentary on life in 1980-something! -- Submitted By: (spacer) on February 21, 2015, 12:01 pm

This is a great, wonderful, funny and awesome show! Could it be that those who are so offended by alleged minor errors in the 80's timeline are offended by something else? I notice none of the haters of this show ever mention the fact the family is Jewish, just pretend to hate it because the Goonies came out in 1985 and the kid watching it is wearing a t-shirt design from 1986! Oh my, the horror! It's like criticizing Leonardo da Vinci because his Mona Lisa was wearing a hairstyle that was not popular at the time of the painting. If you want to knock the show because you dislike the stories or cast, fine. If you don't like it because the family is Jewish, fine, say so and be done with it. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on February 17, 2015, 7:01 am

It's strange, the station never honors their old shows. Shows I grew up with. Remember the beginnings of the network? They use to air shows that were from other countries.

Shows on Nick wouldn't be around today if it wasn't for, Pin Wheels, You can't do that on Television, Danger Mouse, Today's Special, Banana Man, Mysterious Cities of Gold and Count Duckula.

Bone the Fish was until recently an outstanding site. The way it worked was a user would post one or two comments at a time, and when you logged on, you saw the most recent two dozen or so entries. You got a nice diversity of users, shows, and comments. Now, for the second time within a few months, some brain dead idiot has decided to flood the Fish with tired, outdated remarks from the old Jump the Shark site. The result is you have to wade through the back pages to find comments from other people. Life is too short, folks, in two words your site Sucks Balls. On top of that, your server is ridiculously slow. Goodbye forever, a former fan. BTW, any site that posts 200 consecutive comments from the same loser about the Bear in the Big Blue House should have their domain yanked. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on February 7, 2015, 11:12 am

Who gave me a down vote? This show is for the easily entertained by people who don't research a darn thing. They get so much wrong on this show that it's amazing it's still on the air. I hope people born in the 90s and 00s really don't think the 80s were like this. If you want to watch a real show set in the 80s, you should check out Growing Pains, The Cosby Show or Who's The Boss. Don't get me started with the stupid '1980 Something' concept. There can't be a '1980 Something' because the pop culture references date each episode as soon as they're made. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on January 23, 2015, 9:45 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
tvwatcher: So in all of your lengthy critique, you found no fault with the actual show (acting, directing, characters), just some vague references to pop culture that may be off by one or two years. Do you really think anyone watching in 2015 cares about a hyper-critical analysis of a sneaker that came out in 1989 and the probability statistics of whether or not the character would or would not buy a pair in the first year of production? I lived through the 1980's and I don't give a flip if some movie or song came out in 1981 or 1985, or 1989 or 1991! The spirit of the 80's is what is important as far as the time period is concerned. The period in which the show is set is not the most important thing at all. This is a wonderful production about family and the timelessness of familial relationships. The writing, directing and acting are all top notch and if you would look past the minor time inconsistencies you might actually enjoy the show along with the rest of us. Peace. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on January 23, 2015, 9:09 am

And I agree about Maxine flipping out about that cryptic letter. I mean jeez, she acted as if she found cold hard evidence.

First of all, she just loads up the kids into the van and tells them "we're going to McDonald's" and then drives all the way to Milwaukee to confront the lady who wrote Kenny the letter? Uhh, did you REALLY need to bring the kids along to see the show? And not only that, making them think you're taking them to McDonald's but then pulling up to some random woman's home to proclaim, "BITCH, YOU BETTER STAY AWAY FROM MY FUCKING HUSBAND" I understand her being upset but that was crazy, all she had as "proof" was some crumpled letter. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on January 23, 2015, 12:36 am

And I should also mention that he dyed his hair blonde making him more freaky than ever. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on January 20, 2015, 7:44 pm

Revenge - TV Shows
This show was so good the first few seasons, but since Conrad was killed, and we find out David is alive, the storylines are messy, contrived, and just not interesting. Now wit Daniel dead, and everyone knowing the secret that drove the whole show, and the main antagonists either dead, gone, or accepting their wrong doing and moving on. It's crap! -- Submitted By: (JimmiPynk) on January 19, 2015, 8:48 am

Goldbergs, The - TV Shows
I'm not a fan of this show at all. Adam Goldberg basically throws out anything he associates with the 80s as a reference on the show. So many items used as props were from the very early 1990s, not "1980something". The Bo Knows shirt, New Kids memorabilia and Hypercolor were all sold in the very early 90s. Who owned a pair of Reebok Pumps in November of 1989 when they first came out? I didn't get mine until sometime in the spring of 1990. This show should just focus on being a sitcom. I hate that he is confusing future generations with some of his references. No Mother was teaching their son how to do the Kid N Play kickstep in the late 1980s. Most people did not even know who Kid N Play were unless they watched Yo!MTV Raps. Their claim to fame was when they starred in the first teen flick of the very early 90s (House Party). Kid N Play even had a cartoon in the fall of 1990. I know the 80s were one great big transition from the groovy 70s into the hype early 90s, but the mid 80s were still purely 80s.He should set the show in 1985 like he originally set out to do with the pilot. The late 80s set up the early 90s moreso than the mid 80s did. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on January 18, 2015, 12:19 pm

Outer Limits, The (1963-1965) - TV Shows
This show had fantastic writers and directors! Watch all the episodes on Hulu Plus! Some people criticize the series for having really crappy special effects, which they did. I learned in my media history class that ABC bought the series for pennies and refused to pay to for things like expensive special effects. Most of the actors worked for union scale even the established stars. The stories are all compelling and they get the science right! Who cares if the special effects are on the crappy side? It's about the story, not the flash! Hands down, the two best episodes were written by the great Harlan Ellison: Soldier, and Demon With A Glass Hand. -- Submitted By: (spacer) on January 12, 2015, 2:54 pm

Raccoons, The - TV Shows
I loved this cartoon. It aired on Disney Channel back in the day and I'd like to thank CBC for sharing this with American children via satellite. It taught lessons and values while retaining an element of humor. Cyril probably should have remained a villain but I'm not necessarily sure you need an adversary for a compelling story line. I still love to find YouTube clips of this when available. If you haven't seen this show, I highly recommend it. -- Submitted By: (BradJames) on January 12, 2015, 1:55 pm

Name a comedian that doesn't get too political anymore. It's really hard to name a few. George Carlin was one of the very few comedians that really got you to laugh, but got you socially aware and most importantly, thinking. Yes, it may seem that when he got older, he did get bitter. But, it added to his routine. We could use him now, but you know, he did help us get through some very crazy and harsh times when we absolutely needed the laughs and thought the most. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on January 11, 2015, 9:53 am

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Movie Series
Ugh, tell me about it. My brony friends would pay $10 for an object worth $1 just because "ponies!". I look at the brony phenomenon, and wonder "why?". I gave it another try, but don't see what the big deal is. The plots range from average to contrived. The "awesome animation" is Flash. You know, the stuff average people use online since they can't afford animation studios? I watched both Equestria Girls movies with them. The villain of the first movie, who's done major damage (both physical and immaterial), is very sorry and ready to be good once she's defeated. Say what? I recall a demon-centaur from the original My Little Pony, and he was evil. Why do they give people this pathetic HSM wannabe and this "I'm mean because I don't know how to make friends!" crybaby instead? SMDH. Well, as long as the bronies aren't hurting anyone. -- Submitted By: () on January 1, 2015, 7:05 pm

Bon Jovi - Music Groups
Apparently it's official that Richie Sambora has left Bon Jovi, citing personal reasons. I can't blame him as the band has been neutered the past few albums into generic Top 40 noise and Jon feeding his own massive ego. Richie is one of the best guitarists in recent history who hasn't a had chance to let loose since Have A Nice Day, and in my opinion the most talented one in the band. David and Tico are very good but don't contribute much song-writing wise, Hugh is just there, and Jon is too busy trying to remind everyone he's still a sex symbol to write a half-decent song, or to lose that awful country twang in his voice. They should have a called it a day after HAND. -- Submitted By: (BBulaga75) on December 31, 2014, 3:58 pm

This was one of the first - but sadly, not the last - of the strident Cartoon Network originals that mistake "loud" for "funny". From the screams of "MY GYM PARTNER'S A MONKEY!! MONKEY!!

Christmas - Random Topics
I hate how commercialized christmas has become. Just about as commercialized as halloween became. But, it became more about getting the best gifts for people and that's what it boils down to. Buy, buy, buy and buy the best things in order to be festive. It also became a day where we take one day off to be nice to eachother but the next day, it's back to the normal swing of things. One thing that annoyed me the most, is, one of my local radio stations takes it upon itself to pull a 24-hour x-mas music format. Starts on the 21st of November, even before Thanksgiving and ends about a week passing New Years. That's taking the piss for x-mas music. By then, everyone is practically begging the radio station to go back to Top 40s format. -- Submitted By: () on December 26, 2014, 11:54 pm

Flintstones, The - TV Shows
The first two seasons of THE FLINTSTONES are, in my opinion, a great sitcom! The rest of the show is, in my opinion, strictly a childrens. In the first two seasons of THE FLINTSTONES we see characters get beaned over the head with shovels, bowling balls and stuff. We see characters smoking. This was based on the immensely popular HONEYMOONERS that Jackie Gleason and Audrey Meadows gave us. The third season, is, in my opinion where the show goes wrong for me. The season opens with a silly story about Dino falling for a dinosaur TV star ("Sassie") and then on in it gets worse. A few stories later (Barney invisible) the catchy "Rise and Shine" theme has been replaced by the childish (but admittedly popular "Meet the Flintstones" theme which, incidentally, made its debut in the previous season on a children's record.). The next step is that ABC broadcast the show in color. The first two seasons were broadcast exclusively in black-and-white. A change from Black and white to color was a common shark jumping point for TV in the early sixties.The final episode of Season 2 for me, where the Flintstones REALLY had its show finale. Then the irreversible fate occurewd-the birth of Pebbles. The great Jackie Gleason once said that the reason that The Kramdens never had any children (on HONEYMOONERS) is that the kind of behaviour that the Kramdens exhibited on the show ceases to be popular once children are present. The creators of THE FLINTSTONES apparently released Mr.Gleason's lesson too late. The episodes around the birth of Pebbles from then on in for a while center on the fact that Fred must change his ways if he is to be a proper father. We see the sponsor change from Winston Cigarettes to Welch's grape juice. The first two seasons, if memory serves me clear, featured a lot of cartoon characters smoking. The show is quicky becoming a childrnes program. No longer can it be the sophisticated parody of the Hooneymooners that it once was. Now, do not take me wrong. I am not advocating smoking and violence. I am only pointing these two elements out in the change of "The Flintstones" from beuing a great adult satire show to being a children's program. The elimination of smoking and of violence by Season 3 clearly shows this. Again-the change to grape juice just simply further reflects thisunneeded change to children and families in demographics. The third season featured the final scene of Flintstone smoking and it is done, if memory serves me, in a farewell way. It is in the episode where Fred has to leave with his guilty self. His conscience lights up a gag joke exploding cigar., After that, we longer see any cartoon Flintstones characters smoke. Ideal toys also are sponsors. Then the show by fourth seasaon gets more nausetingly childish and insanse-Barney floating (thrid season) after getting dental gas, a cameo appearance by Yogi Bear and Boo Boo. Fifth season and more and more elements of other extremely popular TV shows and extremely popular 1960s popular culture elements are introducted into the cartoon: Ann-Margret, "Shindig", rock music,etc. We even get an awful episode with Sammantha and Darrin from "Bewitched". Elements of "My Favorite Martian","Gunmsmoke","Bonana","PEtticoat Junction","the Beverly Hillbillies", the change in Betty;s voice,etc. The first two episodes of the Flintstones are excellent sitcom! The rest is, well, basically just childrens fare. But that's just my two cents.

Bobs Burgers - TV Shows
I've tried to re-watch this show to give it more chances since my original comment.... except FOX _really_ doesn't want me to see it. It is constantly getting interrupted and moved around the schedule. It's supposed to air at 7:30, but most of the time it doesn't, and there's a Two and a Half Men rerun there in its place. When it does air, it's haphazard. Like last week it aired at 7:30, but this week it airs at 9:30. I never know when it's on. I've given up on The Simpsons and Family Guy, so I'd like to give this show a fair shake, but on the other hand, I don't know if I want to get too invested in a show that FOX seems hellbent on canceling. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 25, 2014, 4:26 pm
