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.

Good old Game Show Network bones and bones back more than any other topic: Boned: No more The Price is Right. How do you call yourself the game show network if you can't even show the longest lasting game show of all time??? Boned back: Got other classic shows on the schedule ($25,000 Pyramid, Press Your Luck, Let's Make a Deal, etc.) Boned: No longer on 24 hours a day. Boned back: They added GSN Live for interactive games. Boned: Became GSN, added reality shows, talk shows, and poker Boned back: Went back to a mostly game show lineup in a short amount of time Boned: Too much Deal or No Deal Boned back: Some good originals starting to come out (Catch 21, Russian Roulette, Lingo, etc.) -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 7:59 pm

Political Correctness - Random Topics
I'm not going to say there are no Conservatives who try to censor stuff they deem offensive, but unlike conservatives, when a liberal pushes to censor something, they usually get their way. A liberal's idea of PC is not limited to replacing words with euphemisms ("Little person" instead of "dwarf" or "midget", etc.). If you took kingbk's post and replaced "atheism" with "God", "abortion" with "Pro-Life", and "profanity" with "prayer", it would be a pretty accurate example of liberal censorship. Let me conclude with a lesson from the Simpsons: You can't be for one form of freedom of speech but against another. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 6, 2010, 7:58 pm

Scrabble - TV Shows
Highly enjoyable game show. Chuck Woolery did a great job creating a comfortable setting and it was easy to play along. Plus the array of sound effects can't be beat. The show boned for a bit when it switched the rules to spelling out the answers (check out the mosquito episode to see what I'm talking about), but then it boned back when they reverted back to the old rules. The 1993 edition, though, with it's small budget, wasn't nearly as enjoyable as the original. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 7:38 pm

Sale of the Century - TV Shows
Sale of the Century was a great game show in the 1980s. I love Jim Perry's hosting style and salesmanship skills. The presentation was glitzy and Summer Bartholomew was sexier than Vanna White. However, this show boned the fish when they changed the bonus round. The whole purpose of the show was accumulating money for better prizes and the champion taking the risk of coming back the next day to go for the better prize. Removing that from the show took out a huge part of the drama that made it great. However, the matching bonus round was still better than the final incarnation of it (Ugh). By the time the Winner's Bonus game came in 1988, the budget was cut significantly and the show was dying out. Sale of the Century became nothing more than Jeopardy meets Press Your Luck meets The Price is Right and lost its original purpose. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 7:35 pm

Back to the Future - Movie Series
This trilogy actually reminds me of the original Star Wars trilogy in that the middle movie was dark, depressing, and the bad guys won so thoroughly I wondered from a plot standpoint how the good guys could ever recover without the aid of Deus Ex Machina.

Kingbk, I am liking you more and more :-) Especially after this bit. "I don't want to friend people from high school I never talked to or my ex-girlfriend I haven't seen in four years. Now everyone (even moms) is on it, there are too many games, people post too many things (I don't want to hear your political or religious views, thank you) and there is way too much advertising." Truer words have never been typed. I myself said the same thing about people from high school and my mom is actually on Facebook even though she almost never gets on the internet to begin with! My sister talked her into it. She's been trying to get me into the facebook fold but I refuse, it all seems so silly. Does anyone honestly think any of their facebook "friends" would ever help them out of a REAL jam if they were in trouble? Of course not. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on May 6, 2010, 6:31 pm

Great kids show for the 80s generation. Marc Summers was great, Harvey was funny and the whole thing was a blast. The kids always wanted to do the physical challenge and get messy. When the show became families, it wasn't the same. It slowed down gameplay and the feeling it was a kids only program changed. By the time Double Dare 2000 arrived, there were too many changes. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 4:52 pm

Tic Tac Dough - TV Shows
TTD with Wink Martindale is a game show classic. Wink knew how to pump up the cheese factor, the game was simple and easy to play along with, and the sound effects added a certain charm to the whole thing. The show boned when Wink left. Jim Caldwell was nervous and unprepared, and it showed. That last season with him was painful to watch. He actually did a good job when he returned to hosting with Top Card a few years later, but he wasn't ready for TTD. The 1990 edition with Patrick "You wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!"

The second season. Marissa turned gay for a brief amount of time, Summer dated goody-goody Zach, Ryan was in the unbelievable relationship with Lindsey, the parents thought of having affairs on each other, Seth smokes pot, Caleb married Julie, Kirstin turned alcoholic, Sandy became materialistic... it was just kind of uncharacteristic of everyone and seemed to be trying too hard to create drama. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 3:10 pm

Around the Horn - TV Shows
Originally I really liked Around the Horn when it was about geographical biases and had a good mix of sports reporters. I also thought Max Kellerman's version was more fast paced and had a better scoring system. When Stat Boy Tony Reali took over, the show lost some of its appeal. He's not a bad host, but sometimes he's too laid back and easy going for a show about competitive banter. Also the show relies too much on the same reporters over and over again (Jay Mariotti, Woody Paige) or uses ones that are too self-indulgent (Ugh J.A. Adande...) The whole geographical bias aspect has also been phased out over time, which is too bad. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 1:57 pm

Boy Meets World - TV Shows
Oh so many reasons this show boned. 1.) Eric went from intelligent ladies man to really stupid idiot. 2.) Topanga went from hippie, new age chick to rich, valley girl. 3.) Morgan went from sweet little sister to sarcastic smart ass. 4.) Minkus and other characters disappeared. 5.) Shawn went from comic relief to seriously affected. 6.) Feeney follows them EVERYWHERE. 7.) Corey becomes really neurotic. 8.) The show got too serious. 9.) Continuity errors (Shawn had a sister, then he doesn't, Corey didn't like Topanga until they were teenagers, but they are shown as life-long best friends, etc.) 10.) Miraculous aging of all of the characters. There are more I'm sure I missed, but you get the idea. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 11:14 am

It boned initially when Bryant Gumbel wrote his memo in the 80s. It created a tension on the show that likely caused it to lose the ratings lead it once had.

Hollywood Squares - TV Shows
Paul Lynde and Peter Marshall were the ultimate duo for this show. Marshall's straight man role was perfect for Lynde's comedy. When Lynde died and Marshall left, it wasn't the same. John Davidson let the celebrities run wild during the 1980's edition and had no control over the show. Tom Bergeron was a good host for the 1990s-2000s edition, but the celebrities weren't as enduring as they were during the Marshall edition. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2010, 9:48 am

Match Game - TV Shows
Part of the charm of the original Match Game was how un-PC everyone was and how much they tried to push the envelope with double entendres. Gene, Brett, Charles and Richard had terrific chemistry and the whole carnival was a big party full of drinking, smoking and laughter. By the time Richard left in 1978, things slowly changed. McLean Stevenson wasn't Richard Dawson, Gene started aging and Brett and Charles banter got a bit over the top at times. I didn't see the show in 1983, but I did see the 1990 and 1998 versions. The 1990 version was okay, but it didn't have the humor or the chemistry of the cast of characters. By 1998, there was no "envelope" really to push for, so the charm of the double entendre was all but dead. Michael Burger didn't have chemistry with the panel and the panel (with the exception of Vicki Lawrence) was overly crude and annoying. Plus in the PC days of the 90's, the whole atmosphere just wasn't the same. Another show like Family Feud that was meant for the 70's. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 5, 2010, 7:59 pm

Dick Clark was such a professional and in total control of this show. He knew when to build suspense, he knew when to comfort contestants, he knew when to be honest, he knew when to crack a joke, he knew when to keep the show moving or slow it down. He had total and complete control. Sure, the "perfect clue" moments after a Winner's Circle loss were rather annoying, but forgivable. John Davidson had no control and Donny Osmond was way too cheesy. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 5, 2010, 5:59 pm

Family Feud - TV Shows
Richard Dawson's version will always be the best version of this show. It was less about the game and more about his interaction with contestants. It also happened to be on at the right time during the 70's before the PC police was in full effect. When Dawson was fired and Ray Combs took over, he did a fine job, but he just wasn't in the same category as Dawson. Neither was Louie Anderson (ugh), Richard Karn or John O'Hurley. When they brought Dawson back, he was more subdued, stopped the kissing and the 70's attitude and humor didn't mesh well with the 90's, probably why he only lasted one year. You wonder why the show goes through so many hosts? Richard Dawson's everlasting influence on the show. Even though it has been over 15 years since he last hosted the show, it won't ever fully go away. The shows best days were with Dawson and its best decade was the 70's, both of which are long gone. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 5, 2010, 5:52 pm

Went BTF in the early 2000s. At that time, some family friends of mine who I was seeing a lot of had young grandchildren spending a lot of time in their house, so the Disney Channel was on in the background pretty much all the time and I couldn't help but notice it. It seemed to have a collective case of bratty (and snotty) attitude, and might as well have had as a tagline "We annoy the hell out of your parents and we're damn proud of it." Since then, unless they happen to be showing a classic movie I want to see again (which anymore is a pretty rare occurrence), I just haven't been interested in watching it.

Disney Channel - Random Topics
When Disney Channel stopped being a pay channel and went to basic cable. The programming got worse and worse, plus commercials (ALWAYS self-promotion spots for Disney Channel) started appearing. Slowly the old cartoons and shows disappeared in favor of new things that had absolutely nothing to do with Disney. By 2003, the channel stopped caring about the young children and family demographics and aimed solely at teenagers. The result: Hannah Montana, High School Musical, and many more similar steaming piles of garbage. Just like MTV, Bravo, A&E and many other cable channels, Disney Channel lost its initial purpose and transformed into something unrecognizable and boring.

I think with this one I'd go with 1, 3 and then 2. One is an instant classic with comedy, fantasy and keeps your interest throughout. Three I liked how it got back to the light heartedness that was missing in the second one. Two was too dark and Marty, although always kind of a wise-ass, seemed unlikable with the whole sports almanac storyline. At least in the other two he was a likable wise-ass. One was a classic, with the other two entertaining. Glad it ended while it was ahead. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 8:04 pm

The first Ghostbusters was a comedy classic. I honestly think it's one of the best screenplays ever written. After the film when Harold Ramis and Dan Akyrod sold the rights to just about everything, it lost it's luster. Toys, drinks, cartoons, food, they were everywhere. By the time the second movie came out, the humor was watered down, the storyline was more far-fetched (even for ghostbusters), it just wasn't as good. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 7:59 pm

Beverly Hills Cop - Movie Series
Beverly Hills Cop 1 was an 80's classic. Edgy humor, lots of action, tons of rich people, it represented the 80's more than many other movies during the decade did. Eddie Murphy was young, raw and hilarious. Beverly Hills Cop 2 was a good, not great, sequel. Lots of action and comedy once again, but at times it felt more forced. "Shakedown" wasn't "The Heat is On" and the whole thing felt at times like a rerun of the previous movie. Still liked it and not quite boned yet. Beverly Hills Cop 3 definitely boned the fish. Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson weren't involved, which was the tip of the fish. John Ashton, Ronnie Cox and Paul Reiser not returning caused the series to eat more fish. Harold F's classic "Axel Foley" being butchered caused the series to eat even more fish. Eddie Murphy looking bored and in it only for the paycheck finished half the fish. Stupid plot devices and terrible acting finished another quarter. It no longer being the 80's killed the whole fish. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 7:55 pm

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Movie Series
First one: classic film noir with edgy humor, a dark attitude throughout, and closest to the original comics, which were written in this style. Second one: Got more cheesy and kid friendly (no more cussing, less fights, Vanilla Ice), but wasn't bad. Third one: Got even more cheesy and kid friendly (stupid jokes, even less fights), worse looking special effects and costumes, no Shredder, wooden dialogue, unnecessary plot line (time travel to Japan), characters no longer have any personality or are written in cliches. Final opinion: Series toed the fish in the second film, but was completely eaten up with the third one. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 7:46 pm

Land Before Time, The - Movie Series
If you want worse, there is TV show on the Land Before Time. The emotion of the first (I still get misty-eyed thinking of Little Foot's mom speaking to Little Foot in spirit through the water) is officially sullied for good. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 4, 2010, 6:57 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
Mythigator, it was a tribute to Sammy Davis Jr., who died during that season. Wearing it for one episode I'd understand, but for the whole season it just got kind of silly. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 6:45 pm

Nightmare on Elm Street - Movie Series
Here's my review for the remake: "One two, who screwed the pooch? Three four, we got banged on all fours, Five six, beat the cast with a stick, Seven eight, didn't take the bait, Nine ten, don't revive this again!" -- Submitted By: (Burmy) on May 4, 2010, 5:34 pm

As an artist=Never, the movie "This is It" showed he still had it (and would have had it if still alive). As a person=Probably Neverland, that was where he started losing his normalcy. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 4, 2010, 5:28 pm

Stargate Atlantis - TV Shows
For me, the show started going downhill at the start of the 4th season. Getting rid of Weir and Beckett at the end of the 3rd season and bringing in Carter just didn't make any sense. You already have a leader in Weir, why would the producers want to bring in Carter? And why get rid of Beckett to bring in Keller? Your replacing a leader with scientist and replacing a doctor with a doctor? wtf?! And lets not go behind the scenes with all the politics about Tapping and Higginson. Here you have Tapping who just did 10 years of SG1, and she goes into Atlantis, kicks out Higginson and Tapping only stays with Atlantis for 1 season! I mean, she comes in, basically takes over another actresses job and then leaves to do her own show! Who's getting screwed here? And its not like Carter added anything to season 4. She didn't do anything that Weir could have done! Jumped the shark in Season 4, no thanks to the decisions to get rid of Weir and Beckett at the end of Season 3. -- Submitted By: (buffy) on May 4, 2010, 4:45 pm

Wal-Mart - Random Topics
I don't like Wal-Mart. Therefore, I don't shop there. I'm not an active hater of the place like some people are, but I just don't like going to it. It feels gross inside, the stuff is made of bad quality and it's too busy. I could care less about their business practices because people have a choice on where they shop and where they work. If you want cheap stuff, be my guest and go to Wal-Mart. If your mad you can't unioize there, quit. Nobody's forcing you to work there. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 4, 2010, 2:30 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
kingbk, what was with that SD pin anyway? I've noticed it but never figured out what its significance was supposed to be. Anyway ... there's an indie TV station here (Seattle area) which has been showing The Cosby Show in the early morning, airing two episodes a day. After seeing a couple of cycles through the show's run, my take is that while Cousin Pam was the nail in the coffin, the decline started with Lisa Bonet leaving the show and then (after she returned) treating it like her own personal revolving door. It got to the point where she needed THREE screen credits: One for herself, a second for her attitude, and a third for her hairdo-of-the-week. Fortunately, even after those seasons of mediocrity, the show managed to finish with a good finale. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 4, 2010, 7:23 am

Organic Farming - Random Topics
Organic food is a false hope for produce. It has a much lower yield than genetically modified food and is why people in impoverished countries are starving. You need the technology and the modification of food genes to create enough food for a growing population. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 4, 2010, 5:58 am

Price Is Right, The - TV Shows
I don't think it ever boned, but Drew Carey has gotten better and better every show. I think TPIR fans should feel safe that with Carey hosting the show, it should be on for many years to come. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 3, 2010, 10:55 pm

Calvin and Hobbes - Random Topics
I still remember Calvin's troubles with Moe. "Never argue with a six-year-old who shaves". In a way, I want there to be new C&H strips due to the pleasure I derived from reading them, yet at the same time I'm happy with Watterson quitting while he was ahead. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on May 3, 2010, 8:35 pm

Saturday Morning Cartoons - Random Topics
Boned for me when I realized I had more fun on Saturday mornings sleeping in, playing a game for a sports team, playing outside with my friends or playing video games. Crudely drawn 30 minute toy commercials never really did much for me with the exceptions of Scooby Doo and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 6:55 pm

Family Matters - TV Shows
The show went through three phases: 1. Pre-Urkel: A poor man's Cosby Show rip-off. Not as funny, more cheesy, weaker acting. 2. Early Urkel: Nerdy neighbor next door with a crush on Laura, a desire to be friend with Eddie, and the penchant to pester Carl Winslow. 3. Later Urkel: Moved in with the Winslow's, went through puberty, got tall, couldn't pull off the nerd thing as much anymore so they gave him an alter ego (Stefan), invents crazy things which cause bizarre adventures for him and Carl, dated Myra, broke up with Myra, Laura falls in love with him, Harriette changes, more original characters disappear, moved to CBS. To make it short, show boned from day one. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 5:48 pm

Cosby Show, The - TV Shows
I loved The Cosby Show right up until about 1990. Early on, it was one of the funniest shows on TV. The episodes like the gold fish, the track meet, Theo's shirt, Theo's earring and the grandparents anniversary were some of the funniest episodes of TV I've ever seen. Cosby in these episodes did a good job having lessons, but not being preachy. This was when the comedy and lessons were at their best balance. Towards the late 80s things started changing. The kids got older, Lisa Bonet left, then she came back, Cosby got more into the show being about black culture (moving Family Ties and putting A Different World in its place) which went against the original purpose, and Olivia and Cousin Pam joined the show. When the story lines moved away from the original kids, Clare and Cosby, it wasn't the same. Cosby and Clare became more smug with Cosby wearing that SD pin for a whole season and both acting holier than thou for the most part. The humor hasn't aged well. The personality of the show is very much 80s-early 90s and doesn't look fresh in reruns. The last episode that made me laugh to tears was the tap-dance challenge. After that, it slowly lost more and more people to the edgy and fresh (at that time) The Simpsons and never recovered. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 5:38 pm

Calvin and Hobbes - Random Topics
Never boned. Sure, I'd love new strips, but I'd rather it end on top than on a decline, and it did indeed end on top. Look at other cartoons like Garfield and you see recycled story lines that are growing stale. The great thing about Watterson's strip is you can read it today and it's just as fresh as it was twenty years ago. The story lines don't age and neither do the characters. Calvin, Hobbes, Susie, his parents, Moe, the babysitter and Miss Wormwood never lost their charm all 10 years of the strip. It's hard to say that with most comics. Bill Watterson's mood swings towards the end got a bit annoying, especially in the 10 Year Anniversary Book, which had more complaining than I cared for, but I didn't see it bleed into the strips. They stayed intelligent, hilarious and enjoyable. Today the comic page is pretty much a wasteland except for the occasional Fox Trot or Peanuts rerun. Blondie, Dennis the Menace, Gasoline Alley, Garfield and the insufferable Family Circus are all showing their age. It's too bad there aren't any new cartoons to step up and take their spot. In fact, one could say Calvin and Hobbes leaving back in 1996 is when the comic page in general boned the fish. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 5:19 pm

Whoopi Goldberg - Celebrities
I thought she was okay back in the early 90s, but today she's very annoying with her dumb comments. She defended Michael Vick, then she defended Roman Polanski, then she said that John McCain was going to bring slavery back??? She's choking on a bone. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 5:07 pm

Facebook - Websites
Getting worse and worse. Started off as an okay idea. College social networking site. Then it opened up to everyone. I don't want to friend people from high school I never talked to or my ex-girlfriend I haven't seen in four years. Now everyone (even moms) is on it, there are too many games, people post too many things (I don't want to hear your political or religious views, thank you) and there is way too much advertising. I think it's best days are behind it. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 4:28 pm
