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.

Nobel Peace Prize - Random Topics
And now since Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, I daresay the Nobel Prize in and of itself has become irrelevant and meaningless. It's obvious which way their voting committee leans and they don't examine the reason(s) why certain people should get it. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 28, 2010, 5:29 pm

Guinness World Records - Random Topics
I recall when there was a TV show regarding this, and most of the stuff they showed were awful. Who gives a @#$% about how wide someone can open their eyes?! Snorting noodles out your nose...give me a break! It's not something you'd brag to anybody. It boned when they focused on disgusting instead of stuff that REALLY matters. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 28, 2010, 5:22 pm

Major League Baseball - Random Topics
MLB went on a downward trend after the advent of free agency - that was when owners went hog-wild and started shelling out millions of dollars for players, regardless of their past performance. Now owners are crying poor, fewer people are coming to games because it's too expensive...guess what? Nobody held a gun to the owners' heads and told them "You must pay Joe Blow that much money or else". If owners ran their business(es) the way they run their teams, they'd be out of business so fast it would make their heads spin. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on June 28, 2010, 9:50 am

G-20 Summit - Random Topics
Does anything good come from this? It seems to me it's a bunch of world leaders bringing their egos to the table, arguing, making promises and plans that won't ever come to fruition, all the while riots, protests and destruction take place in the host city. I don't see this lasting much longer before it's put to rest for good. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 28, 2010, 8:45 am

I've Got a Secret - TV Shows
Was never my favorite game show, but it was entertainment to say the least. The early episodes I felt were much stronger than the later ones. The panel had a touch of class to it and it felt like a cocktail party. The episodes on Oxygen and GSN pandered to a liberal/LGBT audience and got too over the top and crude. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 27, 2010, 7:39 pm

South Park - TV Shows
South Park is still likable and better than most other shows, but I long for the early days. Yes, the humor back then was much more simple and sophomoric, but that was the beauty of it. We spend enough time worrying and poring over the more serious and pressing issues in life that sometimes it's nice to take a break, turn our minds off, and escape into something completely irrelevant. Seasons 1-4 were pure gold, 5-7 were ok, and then 8-10 were pretty unwatchable. In seasons 8-10 the show took on a dark, depressing and uncomfortable feel, but from seasons 11-present, that's evened out a bit and the show is once again very enjoyable. It's basically two different series, with the only constant factor being the title and character names. -- Submitted By: (MarkBagge) on June 27, 2010, 7:20 pm

King of the Hill - TV Shows
The Simpsons should take a lesson from King of the Hill. KOTH was a great show for almost all of its run, but really started declining at the end, most notably starting with the Miss Wakefield episode. Fortunately they ended the series before too long after that so it will still always be remembered as a classic show. -- Submitted By: (MarkBagge) on June 27, 2010, 7:12 pm

Family Guy - TV Shows
Seth MacFarlane is a despicable coward. If Obama had a son with Down Syndrome, there is not a chance in the world that Family Guy ever would have mocked him for it. Even more revolting than MacFarlane slamming Sarah Palin for having a disabled son was the way in which he did it. He basically used an actress with down syndrome to supply the voice because he felt that would keep it safe, then goes on to put words in her mouth, namely "I wasn't making fun of Trig, I was making fun of Sarah Palin"... for what? Having a kid with down syndrome! Seth MacFarlane is a cancer on our society and needs to be taken down a peg. -- Submitted By: (MarkBagge) on June 27, 2010, 7:07 pm

I've Got a Secret - TV Shows
Had its moments- especially in the early years. Most notably, when Lucille Ball guested on the panel,they had a 95-year-old man named Sam Seymour as a contestant whose secret was that, as a 5-year-old, he'd actually witness President Lincoln's Assasination at Ford's Theatre! Yep, someone who'd been around during the US Civil War (AKA War Between the States), actually lived to the television age (and this would make Lucy one of the most worthy Degree of all time re Six Degrees of Separation) and he told an interesting tale about how he was more startled as a 5-year-old seeing John Wilkes Booth jump on the stage from the box seat! Of course, this show was often just a vehicle for start to promo their latest project even during its heyday. The last rendition was simply too tasteless and juvenile to for me to be able to watch through even once. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 27, 2010, 3:04 pm

Are You Being Served? - TV Shows
It started out as a very funny and clever series (and, having worked in retail, I could somewhat relate). However; as time went on, it became increasingly cartoonish and the characters became caricatures but they kept bringing it back like re-warmed oatmeal long past it being palatable- especially its last season in which they sold the store and all these folks who couldn't stand each other in the city were working in some struggling resort hotel. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 27, 2010, 2:52 pm

Yeah, MCS, if one believes that staying in filthy rooms with broken fixtures and neighbors having nonstop parties all hours ( especially on weekends) somehow makes it worth saving $10 or even $5 a night, Motel 6 might be the perfect spot!

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
Wrapped up watching season five, and the show seemed to get a bit better with the two tony's storyline, Feech LaManna as well as Phil Leotardo joining the cast. However, storylines like Gay Vito are launched as well as things that are never picked up again like the Dead? Russian in the forest. Also too much Janice Soprano (should have left after season 2) and too much AJ and meadow- they kill the show and send it screeching to a halt whenever they are on screen. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on June 27, 2010, 7:48 am

George Lopez - TV Shows
The show BTFed when it became the "Carmen's Drama of the Week" show and Masiela Lusha left. Bringing in Veronica was a vain attempt to undo the damage. Veronica turned out to be almost as much of a drama queen as Carmen was, and an airhead to boot.

Vuvuzela - Random Topics
I can understand blowing them to celebrate a goal (hell, yes, OF COURSE blow the horns for a goal!) and when someone on the team does something spectacular. I see similar horns all the time at major junior hockey games. Blowing them at those times (for a goal, or in hockey, for a big hit or a fight) makes perfect sense, and when they're used that way, I don't mind them much. (Also, coming from a fanbase that rings cowbells at games, I'm not in any position to get overly critical about the noise.) But what's the deal with blowing them for the ENTIRE game? That's what doesn't make any sense, and that's the point at which they might as well make the things out of fish bones. If a swarm of bees were to enter the stadium, the people blowing the horns would be the LAST to know about it! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 26, 2010, 7:10 am

Paul McCartney - Celebrities
The Holocaust was horrific human suffering, torture, and murder. There is concrete evidence to prove it really did happen. When it comes to Global Warming (or Climate Change or whatever they call it now), there is evidence proving otherwise, and the climategate scandal created possibilities that findings were either fabricated or exaggerated. Being skeptical about global warming is NOT comparable to Holocaust denial at all.

Headbangers Ball - TV Shows
Headbangers Ball has always been a great source to watch heavy metal music videos for whatever generation was watching. But since Jamey Jasta left, MTV2 has decimated Headbangers Ball by shortening it from 3 hours to 1 hour and moving it later and later into the night. Now it's on at Tuesday at like, 1 in the morning, and that's inexcusable. I know MTV hates anything that associates themselves with "music", but can't they let us metalheads have our metal at a decent hour on a decent day? Now when I want to catch metal, I watch VH1 Classic. At least THEY still care about good music. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 23, 2010, 9:18 pm

His terrible response to the BP incident, in which he went over his powers and put a stop to all offshore oil drilling to compensate for not responding at all, which only lead to it being overturned by the court, to suing the state of Arizona for supporting a federal law that stops illegal immigration when the law is supported by most people, to his rash and terrible judgment call on the General McChrystal incident, which shows to me he has no control over his military as Commander-in-Chief. That is almost an impeachable offense.

Sure, fans of Takeshi's Castle will probably be dumbfounded by what was done to the original show, but it's for a different audience, and luckily, it was well recieved enough for a four year run. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:53 am

Family Feud - TV Shows
If you'd asked me when Family Fued boned in the early 2000s, I'd have said when Louie Anderson became the host, no questions asked. His voice was grating, he never really seemed like he wanted to be there, and he was never particularly funny or witty, despite his funny stand-up material. But when Family Fued dropped Louie for Richard Karn, things improved and improved fast. Richard Karn definitely had no game show experience, but he was warm, friendly, and visibly enjoyed hosting the show. Plus, the set got better and the double point round returned, both I welcomed! So it's definitely jumped back, John O'Hurley also proved to be a great host, though the jury's out on Steve Harvey until we see him in action. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:48 am

Match Game was always an entertaining show in it's classic daytime/syndicated runs of the 70s and early 80s. However, when they had the bright idea to morph Match Game and Hollywood Squares into The Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour, it would never recover. It wasn't even Match Game's fault, the Jon Bauman-hosted joke answer-less Hollywood Squares sunk it, but even if it was as good as the Peter Marshall era, the show would still have left me scratching my head over why they were merged together. Nothing's saved it since either, Match Game 90 was too bland and had a horrible timeslot, and Match Game 98...the less I say, the better. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:42 am

American Idol - TV Shows
The auditions are the best part because we get the trainwreck horrible singers and we get the good singers before they get a television/record label polish. The best judges of talent to me are how they sing as themselves in the audition stage, when it's just them alone singing what they know and want. I'd love to see a singing talent show where the contestants can pick their own songs for the WHOLE run of the show, or sing their own original material if they choose, without outside influence. I'd also love to see more heavy metal singers actually advance, cause I bet some very talented ones have auditioned before, but knowing the commercial appeal of this show, I can't see it ever happening. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:36 am

Hell's Kitchen (U.S.) - TV Shows
The anti-climactic cliffhangers don't bother me, they're just a way to try and get fans to tune in next week, and even if we know it likely won't lead somewhere, it must work on some people. That being said, I like Hell's Kitchen, I like how Gordon Ramsay has total control to run the kitchen and to judge and eliminate contestants. The show presents everything well, and we really get to know the contestants. And of course, seeing Gordon yell and get angry is always fun. It may not be the best method of finding a great new chef, but I'd take this over Top Chef any day, it's just an entertaining summer show! -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:29 am

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - TV Shows
WWTBAM was perfectly fine the way it was until producers started tinkering with the syndicated format. Stuff like dumping the classic lifelines, adding a time limit to a show that didn't need to be sped up, overcomplicating the show with unneeded graphics and additions, and of course, the completely dispensable "Tournament of Ten", which to me sounded like a desperation move to force a millionaire cause they hadn't had one in 6 years. WWTBAM was at it's best when Regis hosted the ABC version, and if it wasn't for airing it too much and all the celebrity episodes, it would have lasted a LOT longer. It was simple, fun, suspenseful, and engaging. A lot of that appeal has dried up in the last few years thanks to the changes that have been made. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:23 am

Real TV - TV Shows
Real TV boned when Ahmad Rashad replaced John Daly. Ahmad's a nice enough guy, I found him underrated as the host of Caesar's Challenge, and he's great as a sports host, but he definitely didn't fit on Real TV. He seemed somewhat wooden, where John Daly was a well-versed perfect host for the material. I didn't mind Kristin Eykel either as a co-host, though she was dispensible. Real TV went from generally amazing and interesting home video to mostly extreme sport mishaps after Ahmad took over too, it's like they wanted to appeal to a younger audience and not try as hard at the same time. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:16 am

Family Guy - TV Shows
Family Guy gives me mixed feelings. I find the show hilarious, but the structure and characters make me dislike it at the same time. Since the third season, things seem to have gotten worse. The stories went from actually trying (with some cutaway gags) to an over reliance on cutaway gags and unneeded character development that made most of the main characters less likeable, ESPECIALLY Stewie, whose world-domination matricidal bent is sorely missed. The stories are worse too. I still find the show very funny, but only if you strip the cutaway gags from the story itself. Without them, it feels empty and not as fun as it was in the first two seasons. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 1:07 am

Jeopardy! - TV Shows
Jeopardy has never jumped or boned, it's as entertaining as it's ever been. I have nitpicks, like the unnecessary Clue Crew, the set not turning red in Double Jeopardy like in the 1990s, and the old "board-turns-on" music being replaced, but those are all minor. Jeopardy is classic, they know not to screw with what works, and it's worked for 26 years and counting! If it ain't broke, don't fix it! -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 12:42 am

Hills, The - TV Shows
Scripted or not, I have no interest in these preppy high class 20-somethings with no noticeable talent, unless being a "reality TV star" is talent in the new millennium. Reality shows are best when the people/family being followed have an interesting back story, profession, or situation to be wrapped in, and there's not enough of those. I'd bring up the fact that this airs on "Music Television" and isn't a music program, but MTV buried that long ago. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 20, 2010, 12:33 am

At the Movies - TV Shows
Siskel and Ebert were a great team, they played off each other well, they genuinely loved films to the point that they'd fight over them to defend their ratings. They made "thumbs up/down" a household term. After Gene died, it was never the same. Richard Roeper grew on me, but he's no Gene Siskel. The set got worse too. It was never quite as good during the "Ebert & Roeper" years, though I still watched.Ebert losing his voice, the celebrity guest hosts, and the two Bens sunk it further. It's jumping back with Scott & Phillips, but not enough to save the show. -- Submitted By: (robfrules) on June 19, 2010, 5:50 pm

BEATLES, The - Music Groups
I was listening to some Beatles songs the other day, and I just don't get it. Now, I'm a great lover of music, from all over the world, in all pockets of time. But I just don't understand this worldwide obsession with this group. Am I missing something? Is my brain not functioning properly from preferring Elvis to this group? To my ears, their songs are boring, nonsensical, they jump from style to style with no explanation. Or maybe it was the marijuana talking. This is my opinion, if people like their then I respect that. I know if someone said this about ABBA I wouldn't go so far as to make them a pariah. Sadly, that's what many Beatles fans do as they expect every living human being to love and respect them even if they broke wind into a microphone. They are not gods. They are just a rock band, like all the other rock bands. People don't need to feel guilty or hurt because of public majority. Unfortunately, as long as there will be music, there will be crazed Beatles fanatics. -- Submitted By: (doctorwhorox) on June 19, 2010, 2:43 pm

Law and Order - TV Shows
Ani that's so dead on. L&O did get annoying over time as so many episodes fell into that mold. You just knew the first 10 minutes of the police investigation was going to be revealed to be an amusing but misguided romp, then Van Buren would make some smart crack and send them on the path of the real killer. It just got so repetitive. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on June 18, 2010, 6:52 pm

Smurfs, The - TV Shows
Holy $#^&, I thought I was going to puke when I first saw the CGI incarnations of the Smurfs. Good God almighty, why? Haven't the Smurfs been tortured enough with the Smurflings? With the impending arrival of this disgrace, it is now unfalsifiable: Hollywood's ultimate goal is to make CGI/live action versions out of every single cartoon, movie, game, etc. known to man. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 18, 2010, 5:12 pm
