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.

The Stray Cats rock simply because they led the Rockabilly Revival in the early 80's. "Stray Cat Strut" and "Rock This Town" are right up there with Gene Vincent's "Race With The Devil" and Ricky Nelson's "Waitin' in School." -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 6, 2009, 2:24 pm

Franklin - TV Shows
Nelvana has produced many excellent animated series including "Babar," "The Backyardigans" and "Little Bear." For me, however, I will always know them best for "Franklin." Based on a series of children's books written by Paulette Bourgeois and illustrated by Brenda Clark, this series not only never boned the fish, it actually seemed to improve the longer that it continued. Never mind all of the voice changes in later seasons, never mind the stupid blue vest that they started having Bear wear. This series's strongest aspect was always the quality of its writing and they never lost that, so that many of the episodes in the sixth season (the most recent season, and possibly final one) were as touching as ones from the first season if not more so. There were also four film releases and while I liked the first one, "Franklin and the Green Knight," the best, they're all quite enjoyable to watch and "Back to School with Franklin" comes very close to matching the quality of "Green Knight." A true treasure of a show. It may never come back, though you never know, given how long a break there was between the fifth and sixth seasons of the program. -- Submitted By: (Agent0042) on November 6, 2009, 1:28 pm

Growing Pains - TV Shows
I think it's great that Kirk became a Christian...that's cool, but he was so self-righteous about it. According to "E True Hollywood Story", where the cast members were interviewed, he threw a fit when a guest-star actress who'd posed for Playboy years before, was being written into the script. From what I gathered from the interviews, he was just so over-zealous about his faith to the point where he wasn't the same person...and not in a good way. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on November 6, 2009, 6:56 am

Dr. Dolittle - Movie Series
This series boned when they lost Eddie Murphy as Dr. John Dolittle but they continued to release the films anyway, going straight to DVD and featuring the daughter, Maya Dolittle, as the main charcter instead. The first film got a very mixed reaction but I personally found it quite entertaining, though I would have been happy to leave it right there. The second film wasn't quite as good but still managed to provide a certain level of charm. But once they lost Murphy, it was over, yet they are trying to milk the series to death. I think they are up to the fifth film now. -- Submitted By: (Agent0042) on November 5, 2009, 9:51 pm

Jeopardy! - TV Shows
Did you ever notice Jeopardy! "Answers" really are no longer actually answers? In the original series and the first seasons of the Trebek revival, the "answer" would more or less be a sane answer to the question, e.g. if the question was "What is Alaska?" the answer was "It's the largest state in the Union." Okay, someone might really ask that question and be satisfied with that answer. Nowadays the question is still "What is Alaska?" but a typical answer is, "In 2008 Lance Mackey won the Iditarod held in this state." Uh, what? That is simply not an answer to that question... outside of bizarro jeopardy world. If someone really answered your question that way, you'd think they were nuts or just a smartass. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on November 5, 2009, 8:22 pm

Arthur - TV Shows
"Arthur" has now been around for well over a decade. Boy is this series a mixed bag. When it's at its best its easily my favorite of any show of this type, but when it's bad it can be really bad. For me, it's come close to boning so many times, but it's never quite seemed to get there. And some of the most recent material, such as the episode about Mrs. MacGrady having cancer, has actually been really good. -- Submitted By: (Agent0042) on November 5, 2009, 4:54 pm

24 - TV Shows
Never boned, though at times it has come very close. When it's at its best, "24" is pulse-pounding, riveting entertainment that is both fun to watch and keeps you at the edge of your seat. Unfortunately, the show often tends to get caught up in plotlines that are either just plain silly or simply don't add anything to the overall storyline. Fortunately, despite many miscues from the series, the staff has always managed to keep it just watchable enough to keep me from jumping the ship and then generally manages to once again pull off brilliance. I think it may be reaching the end of its days, but I'm definitely looking forward to more. -- Submitted By: (Agent0042) on November 5, 2009, 2:22 pm

Harry Potter - Movie Series
Never boned. If you ask me, the people that don't like these films are mainly divided into two camps. There's those that never liked the books in the first place and therefore aren't very likely to enjoy the movies anyway. Then, there's the ones that are so diehard committed to the idea that the movies should totally follow the books that they think it's somehow feasible to have a movie that's going to cover anything close to the full story (keep in mind that the audiobook edition of "Order of the Phoenix" is over 24 hours long!) Yes, each of the movies in the series have their problems, but on the whole all of them are very well liked by a wide audience. It's not for no reason that every single one has been certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and they all continue to receive massive box office. I can find many things to like in every one of them and while it took me a while to warm up to the film adaptation of "Order of the Phoenix," I eventually got there. I quite enjoyed the most recent installment, "Half-Blood Prince" and am quite looking forward to the two films of "Deathly Hallows" that will wrap up the series. -- Submitted By: (Agent0042) on November 5, 2009, 2:08 pm

Republican Party - Random Topics
Honestly bmovies, I don't participate in political rants online too much. :) I am sure that there are plenty of sites online that work in favor of either party and put down the other. My point is that in general, when conversing with people, Republicans almost always display that kind of behavior that I mentioned. I also look at radio and TV shows like Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Bill O'Reilly, and hear people like Anne Coulter, and see how obnoxious they are about their beliefs. You do not see behavior to that extant with Democrats on the radio and on TV. That also makes me think the Republican Party has boned. Obviously I am not going to change your mind, so maybe we should just agree to disagree? -- Submitted By: (MCS) on November 4, 2009, 4:49 pm

WCW Monday Nitro - TV Shows
While the actual event didn't happen on Nitro, the leadup events did... they had built up Sting's revenge on the NWO for an agonizing 18 months and poised him to finally take down Hogan at Starrcade 1997. But presumably to give new acquisition Bret Hart something to do, and thumb their nose at the WWF once again, they had Sting fail to capitalize on his title shot. Which left all of us slavering WCW/NWO fans who were chomping at the bit to see Sting finally get the best of Hogan with a bitter taste in our mouths. You build up a storyline for the better part of two years just to throw it out the window? The beginning of the end for WCW. -- Submitted By: (SmoothT) on November 4, 2009, 7:10 am

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
The Simpsons were great in the early days - everyone can agree with that. A major factor was that while few topics taboo, controversial viewpoints and storylines were treated with an even hand. Not so any longer. After 2003 or so, the writers (perhaps sensing The Simpsons no longer having the cultural cache it once did), decided it was open season on conservatives. Any attempts at portraying a balanced view of story topics were thrown out the window. -- Submitted By: (SmoothT) on November 4, 2009, 6:54 am

Growing Pains - TV Shows
Hmmm... two rather snarky comments towards Cameron's faith. Maybe someone could provide evidence that Kirk was trying to influence the scripts or push the show in a different direction? It was always a fairly wholesome show ("Boner" nonwithstanding), I don't recall any drastic shift in the tone. Yeah, Mike went from being a good hearted but self-absorbed kid to a responsible adult, but isn't that how most decent people with loving parents eventually end up? -- Submitted By: (SmoothT) on November 4, 2009, 6:43 am

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
For me the series died between seasons 5 and 6. Yes there was a dropoff in quality each season after the third, but 4 and 5 were still highly enjoyable. Elements like Adriana's death, the return and demise of Feech, even the plot with Tony B. at least reminded you of why the series was great. By season 6 everyone was just showing up to do some Sopranos. Instead of doing something new and interesting, like perhaps Tony actually being brought to justice, they just made 20 episodes of forgettable quasi-drama where nothing really happened, they just figured if they had the establish characters walking around the familiar sets, speaking in their charming drawls, and threw in a mob hit every other episode, it would satisfy the masses. And for some reason Vito ran off and had a gay affair. Vito's affair is kind of a poster moment for when this show died... yes it chewed scenery and provided some fratboy giggles, but what on earth was the point? How did it add anything meaningful to the story of Tony Soprano and his family? But that was the problem with everything after season 5. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on November 4, 2009, 6:43 am

Futurama - TV Shows
The second DVD movie "The Beast with a Billion Backs" was definitely the low point of the series. I think the big misstep with the straight-to-DVD movies was that they were created in a way that they could later be split into 22 minute episodes, which led to some pretty jarring shifts and uneven plots. Hopefully with the upcoming season of "normal" episodes Cohen and Groening can get back to what they do best. -- Submitted By: (SmoothT) on November 4, 2009, 6:33 am

Numb3rs - TV Shows
It pains me to write this, but at the moment, Numb3rs is really on the fast track of boning. If the actual Season doesn't get any better FAST I am out of there. It was bad enough when in the last season Megan and Mildred suddenly vanished...I had hoped that at least Diana Farr (Yes, I liked her character!) would return after a baby break, but nooooo, instead we get to see more and more of this annoying Nikki - I really hate this character! But characters aside, the actual season bones plotwise in nearly every episode. First Larry is going...again! This used to be an interesting character, but I am really getting tired hearing him whining about his place in the world...one season with this crap was enough, I really didn't need a repetition of this drivel. And now...when became Numb3rs a mix of overhyped urban legends and x-Files? The last episode with the Ufos and the strange Goverment agent was simply painful to watch. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on November 4, 2009, 4:49 am

Aside from all the reasons listed above (with the exception of McCain, who was not a RINO) the main reason it has boned is because of the paranoia that is associated with it. Republicans are always so quick to point out all the ills of society as being the fault of the Democrats. Most Republicans I have met can barely go about five sentences without bitching about something the Democrats did or how the liberals are destroying our society. I have never once heard a Democrat piss and moan to this extant about the Republicans or about how conservatives are so horrible. Unless someone has a valid argument with some proof, they will be proving my theory correct.

I don't understand the hate this film gets. There have been far worse chick flicks and I think it was very faithful to the mood of adolescence- the whole thing of the main female character feeling clumsy and awkward and like she doesn't measure up, and then introducing the vampire characters- the perfect charming, agile superhumans and thus reinforcing that its the fallibilities and frailties of an adolescent that make us human.

I'm continually amused by how far this once great show has fallen- now the complete Ret-Conning has gone full circle with the release of the DVD "The Plan". Which tries to explain the horribly done "shock writing" of the final five and the miserable and poorly regarded finale of this show. It's amazing since like the horrible ending of the anime "Neon Genesis Evangelion" they TRIED to go back with the two movies "End of Evangelion" and "Death/Rebirth Evangelion" to end that series properly- both failed miserably and the series is still not ended in any proper way with Hideki Anno shitting on the fans- Ron Moore and Co have now matched Anno in almost every aspect of BSG 2004- and the ret-conned attempt to "end the show" after it was completed in such a half assed way over the last season- here is some advice- actually hire real writers and plan out what you are going to start and end with instead of making up plot twists and nonsesne to shock the fans with no proper ending. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 31, 2009, 8:27 pm

Never boned. A hilarious show, and at least the time during Redd Foxx's contract dispute had the hilarious Wild Parsley episode. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on October 31, 2009, 3:28 pm

Orbitz.com - Websites
Maddox isn't the only one Orbitz screwed over. If you visit his site, you'll see among the list of people those who were ripped off and screwed over by Orbitz like he was. And if you check other sites, many people agree that Orbitz sucks. Free tip, Orbitz...if you're going to screw over a customer, make sure they're not famous. Better yet, DON'T screw over your customers in the first place. The icing on the cake is that they blatantly violated their privacy policy in trying to downplay Maddox's claim. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 31, 2009, 2:19 pm

Weather Channel, The - TV Shows
The network boned when NBC bought it and decided to give Al Roker his own show and they recently showed "The Perfect Storm". But truth be told, TWC has sucked ever since thet start making stuff like "Storm Stories" "It Could Happen Tomorrow" and "When Weather Changed History" -- Submitted By: (tvfan) on October 31, 2009, 1:47 pm

Zero Tolerance Policies - Random Topics
Zero tolerance? Zero Common Sense! This policy does nothing but punish people who've done nothing wrong because it can't tell the difference from code violations and perfectly acceptable possession/use of harmless items. You could be expelled for using nail clippers (Sharp blade? They're weapons! End of story!), giving an ailing classmate pain killers (Over-the-counter, Schmover-the-counter! Aspirin is a type of drug, drugs are drugs, end of story!), and not to mention the kids who've suffered because they brought in tools which zero tolerance considered to be weapons. Before the idiots who came up with Zero Tolerance go around telling kids not to do drugs, they should practice what they preach and cut down on whatever they're snorting, smoking, shooting, etc. until they realize how stupid this policy is. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 31, 2009, 1:29 pm

Alvin and the Chipmunks (Live action/CGI film) - Movie Series
I've seen several classic cartoon series we (or our parents) loved as kids wind up being horribly mutated into godawful live action movies. Of them all, Alvin and the Chipmunks is, by far, the ABSOLUTE WORST. What's worse, it's likely that it won't keep its WORST CARTOON TO LIVE-ACTION FILM EVER crown forever. Some idiot producer/director/writer is bound to see another classic cartoon series and go, "Hey! THAT one hasn't been made into a live-action movie yet!" and follow that idea up with "Let's make the movie worse than Alvin and the Chipmunks!" -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 31, 2009, 1:05 pm

Saturday Night Live - TV Shows
Well, Mad TV was a boil that got bad and was thankfully lanced. Now they just need to do the same to this mess. The ONLY reason it hasn't been canned is because it's been on for decades. That shouldn't be the quality that keeps it on the air. If a show isn't good anymore (and SNL isn't) then it's time to pull the plug. -- Submitted By: (JLer2562) on October 30, 2009, 7:30 pm

Ghost Whisperer - TV Shows
The whole Jim/Sam storyline is idiotic and sloppy. Once they made the decision to kill Jim off, they should have left him dead. They could have still used David Conrad to play Jim's ghost, but the whole "taking over someone else's body" concept is just too stupid. Now factor in Aiden and the fast forwarding 5 years and it is even more lame and unwatchable. -- Submitted By: (DianneF) on October 30, 2009, 6:52 pm

Wheel of Fortune - TV Shows
Let's start with the weak contestants. If you see a WoF contestant doing any of the following: - solving the puzzle after buying a vowel - solving the puzzle with less than $1000 - taking the $1000 for the Mystery wedge when you have no money in round 3 - abusing the Free Play wedge to buy vowels for free ...that's a good sign of a weak contestant! What part of "You can only be on this show once in your life" don't they understand? C'mon, play for keeps or go home! As far as prizes go... you know, I probably had to set aside some time away from work and whatnot just to get onto WoF, so the last thing I need is some trip that I probably can't use within a year of winning it! -- Submitted By: (NotABot55) on October 30, 2009, 4:02 pm

Two words: "The Hills". (Granted, MTV was dying a slow death once shows like "Beavis And Butt-Head" and "The State" were replaced with garbage such as "TRL", but the final nail in the coffin of MTV's relevancy came when they developed a show that represents everything currently wrong with TV in general.) -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on October 30, 2009, 2:23 pm

Youtube - Websites
The Youtube that exists now is not the same great Youtube that existed early 2006. The magnificent Youtube that contained full episodes of many great TV shows died, and popularity killed it. I knew it back then, too. It was blatantly obvious that once the copyright hounds caught on, Youtube's days of fun and greatness were numbered. The great videos that used to exist were soon replaced with garbage such as that horrid "Leave Britney Alone" video. Thank you, copyright hounds. You killed Youtube. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on October 30, 2009, 2:13 pm

When they bowed to pressure from health nuts and environmentalists. The McDonald's I used to love had classics such as fried cherry pies and the McDLT.

quimbyt: "Im probably the biggest Sci Fi fan in the world, but I hate British Sci Fi. The Brits have no clue when it comes to Sci Fi." If you were, you would know better than to call it sci-fi for a start. The Brits have a valid claim to have invented SF (Mary Shelley and H.G.Wells for starters) so maybe you should think this one through. Also, if you find the current version of Doctor Who hard to follow, you should stick to crayons and leave computers for grown ups. -- Submitted By: (LizR) on October 29, 2009, 3:31 pm

Sun Tanning - Random Topics
Ah! The days of laying out in the sun covered in baby oil and then the mounds of Noxema used to take the horrible sting from the 2nd degree burns we got; all in quest of the savage tan. In the 70's, it was almost a status symbol to go to school after a weekend at the beach, with a sunburn. Then with the 80's, came the tanning beds and tanning salons and the memberships. "Tan 4 weeks in a row and get the 5th week free!" I wonder if now, there are special offers like that at any dermatologist's: "Get 4 skin cancers removed and get the 5th one extracted for free!!" -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on October 29, 2009, 11:29 am

I live in Topeka, Kansas, where this group is located, so I often see these guys holding up their signs in front of some church or whatever (and they even make little kids hold them). I realize that there are many people who want the WBC to be silenced for good, but like it or not, they have the same freedom of expression that other Americans have, and that's not for us to step on. That said, they're still a pack of disgusting, bigoted douchebags. -- Submitted By: (shroooooom) on October 28, 2009, 10:11 pm

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - TV Shows
Season 3 is where it jumped the shark for me, right from the beginning. Season 2 had been the show's peak but after that it seemed to believe its own hype and importance, with a tendency for horrible, melodramatic, heavy handed moralising like "Beauty and the Beast" and "Consequences", and a lot of the stories just felt half hearted and weak, as if the writers felt they had the formula down pat and didn't even need to try anymore. Case in point being when Buffy finally tells Giles and Willow that Angel was cured when she killed him and simply says in conclusion "it felt good to let it out", instead of saying something more cathartic about how the spell at least afforded her the chance to say goodbye one last time to the man she loved- its a small thing but it indicated to me that things had gotten lazy. There were some good, strong and thrilling episodes that season like "The Wish", "Helpless" and "Earshot" and the odd guilty pleasure a la "The Zeppo", but even then the show was taking a turn for the worse with the 'Scooby Gang' becoming a rather obnoxious, cliquey and vindictive bunch. In later seasons though we became burdened with dull, humourless and obnoxious characters like Dawn and Riley that the show kept demanding we care about, the show became more and more horribly man bashing "Beer Bad" and the arc leading to where a much put upon Spike tries to rape Buffy, and the series just became more melodramatic, shrill, heavy-handed and depressing in a way that just left a hollow shell to the show, and Buffy became less and less like someone you could admire or respect or even want to know. In some ways it was worth it for "The Body", which was a fantastic episode, but otherwise it seemed like the show would have been better ending with the "Becoming" finale. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on October 28, 2009, 8:08 pm

Saw - Movie Series
Infact the closest thing Saw III had to a redeeming feature was a sense of finality in bringing Jigsaw to his final end (even if typically this meant the villain having to have a bridge dropped on him). But even that became invalidated when they carried it on with the next three Saw films in what looks to be a depressingly dragged out, never ending film franchise that should have just been a one off. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on October 28, 2009, 7:49 pm

Saw - Movie Series
Saw III is where it really jumped. The second film wasn't that good to be honest (and the twist was an absolute cheat) but at least it had some wit and had some sense that it was about something more than just torture and misery and cruelty. But Saw III is to my mind just a nasty, reprehensible film that has to render its characters really inept and stupid in doing things to get themselves killed in the most horribly contrived and nasty way possible. When this happens there's no way it works as horror because there's no suspense anymore, because the character didn't have a chance of surviving because the writing has limited them and there's no way of empathising on a primal level with their survival instinct. I think the suggestion that Saw became too much like the Hostel flims really does the Hostel films a disservice, because Hostel at least does what it does right without ever seeming contrived about it or like its trying too hard, and honestly is unpredictable, spontaneous and has the essence of life at its most primal about it. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on October 28, 2009, 7:46 pm
