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.

Soft Drinks - Random Topics
While there are entries for Coca-Cola and Pepsi, this topic appears to be for soft drinks in general. However, I bought a Jones Cream Soda from my mall the other day, wanting to continue collecting unusual soda bottles. After two sips, I dumped the rest of the Cream Soda out! It sort of tastes like medicine! Yuck! I like Coca-Cola, Diet Dr. Pepper, and Root Beer the best; if Coke is not available, I'm still happy with a Pepsi! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on August 24, 2009, 6:34 am

Santa Clause, The - Movie Series
Being a "Golden Age" film, along with the excellent show "Home Improvement", the first "Santa Clause" was great! However, when parts 2 and 3 came out, it just wasn't the same. Tim Allen was starting to become unknown, and Disney has already morphed into a "teen-to-young adult" studio.

Wikipedia boned the fish when some vandalizers started teasing the Dallas/Fort Worth area users, exciting them with unsourced information for no apparent reason. Why is it that, of all the parts of this lovely country, Wikipedia so chooses to bully us North Texans, huh? First, we are force-fed untrue information regarding aviation services (e.g. DFW starting flights to some unknown Mexican city, Dubai, etc., airlines such as Iberia, Qantas, Air India, all promising DFW as a future destination). Then, some mom-and-pop independent station says they're going to launch a free, 24-hour classic TV station on 54-2 (despite honest-to-Pete sources linked to the article) and guess what? WE DON'T HAVE IT YET!!!!! I predict third time WON'T be the charm and someone will put in "Bloomingdale's will be opening a store in Dallas!"

The first movie was actually pretty good! Having a dead guy as a main character was an original enough concept that it made for a pretty good take at the box office.

MTV boned slowly. The first sign of it was "The Real World" That was one of the first reality shows ever, but when it was the only one it was somewhat forgivable. Beavis and Butthead was funny and at least they could justify it by showing videos. Then you had the pop explosions of the late 90s. "TRL" epitomized the celebrity worship that is wrong with American and then you had "Celebrity Death Match", "Room Raiders", "Two a Days", etc. etc. etc. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on August 22, 2009, 3:00 pm

Streets Of San Francisco, The - TV Shows
I have to agree with Shanequia when she said that Dawn Lyn's character seemed borderline retarded. The problem with JoeBagODonuts theroy that every user is the same person who thinks Dawn Lyn sucked, is that he left out myself along with Gregeicherberger, Hikariu, Travoltron, Mythigator & many others. Could JoeBagODonuts possibly be SmartBoy from the old website? Smartboy went off when people didn't like someone he liked. This disturbed new user will go berserk if you don't like Dawn Lyn, WalMart & Brett Favre. Maybe I will go berserk everytime someone makes a rude comment about Vicki from the Love Boat. She also sucked but not as bad as Dawn Lyn. -- Submitted By: (AlanJames) on August 22, 2009, 8:22 am

Thanks for the tip, bmovies. Dunkin' Donuts makes AWESOME donuts (of course) and pretty good coffee, but after your tip I'll definitely steer clear of their breakfast sandwiches.

Dunkin' Donuts - Random Topics
I love their donuts but I HATE their breakfast sandwiches. One time I lost the use of my car (needed repairs and didnt have the money to fix it yet). So to get to work I had to rely on public transportation: A bus to take me to the train which took me to another bus which got me to work. At the train station there was a Dunkin donuts place. I was quite hungry that morning and had a long wait for the bus to take me to work, so I decided to buy not one, but two of their egg sandwiches. I realized I was in trouble when I watched the Dunkin Donuts employee pull out this long white tube which had a yellow dot in the center. I guessed that this was the egg for my sandwich. The employee took out a knife, cut off a couple of slices, put them on a couple of english muffins, then stuck them in the microwave. I was hoping it would taste better than it looked. Unfortunately I was wrong. It tasted just as bad as it looked. I took only a couple of bites out of the first sandwich before I threw the both of them out. Stay away from their breakfast sandwiches!

Man vs. Wild - TV Shows
Of the two "guy surviving wilderness" shows on Discovery, I prefer Survivorman over Man vs. Wild. Survivorman comes off as more realistic and less contrived, and I like Les's style better than Bear's. But to give Man vs. Wild due credit, it's pretty good and hasn't really had a BTF moment. Also -- and more importantly -- in a survival situation, you'd be worse off being alone than having EITHER Bear or Les out there with you. They both know what they're about, even though Bear sometimes seems to favor flair over realism. Les rocks better, but Bear still rocks. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 20, 2009, 6:03 pm

Whale Wars - TV Shows
I've seen some bits and pieces of the episodes, and it seems like there's always something wrong with their ship: engines running crappy, navigational system on the blink, or some other glitch which keeps them from running interference on the big bad evil Japanese whalers. At BEST, these guys are thoroughly ineffective eco-terrorists - in a "Which Jeff Dunham Puppet Are You" quiz, these guys would all match on Achmed the Dead Terrorist. Day 1 BTF, but that doesn't go far enough. "Humped the whale shark" would be more like it - if you'll pardon the Scottish Site reference. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 20, 2009, 5:32 pm

For me, it boned with Dr. Greene died. He was the most "believable" character on this show, and apparently, the most stable. Abby was moody as hell, and then her SERIOSLY bi-polar mom would show up and wreak havoc. Carter was addicted to painkillers, then was totally manipulated by that Kim chick he hooked up with in Africa, who never treated him right. Benton had anger issues. Weaver couldn't decide if she liked men or women. Romano was borderline sociopathic. Luca made the mistake of marrying Abby.

I just have to laugh when I see that most people have voted that Brett sucked from the start. Really?

Go read his stats, look at his 3 consecutive pro bowl starts, look at his superbowl ring...and he sucked from the start? Really? I would guess everyone is punishing him for his annual will he play, won't he play ritual that he had in Green Bay which was followed by the will he retire will he stay retired ritual. If ANYONE has earned the right to do this it's Brett Favre. I like his quote on his latest come back with Minnesota which was something to the effect of "If you don't like it, don't watch it. It's career and my legacy." Brett Favre is everything that's right about the NFL and professional sports in general. He's an extremely talented competitor who loves the game and doesn't get caught up in all the off the field antics that so many other do.

Palin's political opponents have been predicting her political demise before her resignation. Like during the loss of the election. And before her running as VP. Before she was Governor and was Mayor of Wasilla. And they always picked some silly, insignificant reason for this supposed future demise. Her resigning is no different to her opponents. They now use that as an excuse to dismiss her political career as completely over. Tomorrow they'll predict her political demise again, and will choose a brand new reason to explain it. Most people look at her resignation and just shrug their shoulders. Anyone who predicts that she has Boned the fish, so to speak, just because of her resignation, is engaging in wishful thinking. Many politicians have resigned from office for various reasons, only to return at a later date.

Wonder Woman - TV Shows
Wonder Woman boned in Season 3. It strayed from its original concept to the point where it got just plain weird. You can make a good case for the episode guest-starring Dawn Lyn being the tipping point, since it was the first episode of the third season. But the blame for the show's demise is more properly placed on the writers, not on Ms. Lyn, no matter HOW sucky or freaky her guest appearance was. I remember this episode, and she did indeed suck. At the time, I had no idea that Leif Garrett was her real-life brother. After the fact, though, it does explain why their acting (Lyn's and Garrett's) came off as so wooden and why something just seemed off. All the same, though: The blame for Wonder Woman going BTF belongs to the writers, with an extra portion going to whomever decided to cast Lyn and Garrett. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 18, 2009, 10:57 pm

This show is pretty good, and shouldn't bone as long as it sticks to its format (helping cats and their humans live together harmoniously) and doesn't get sidetracked onto anything else. It looks like the show's creators actually understand the importance of not getting sidetracked: I saw an episode with a segment that featured Peter Weller (of Robocop fame) and they referred to him only as an "Actor" -- and as Peter the cat owner, of course. The segment never even mentioned Robocop or anything else Weller's been in, staying on topic rather than getting caught up in Weller's celebrity status.

Keeping Up Appearances - TV Shows
Actually, I thought it improved when the First Rose(Stella Stelfox) got replaced by Mary Millar because Stella played her with an underlying melancholy so that when First Rose threatened to kill herself- the audience had no choice but to believe her. Mary Millar, though, played Rose as someone who PRETENDED to be a drama queen but was, in reality, a flighty romantic despite her rather depressing situation of being middle aged and having to live with the sloppy layabouts Daisy+ Onslow with their 'dirty old man' Daddy in residence. Rose was funny in that her room looked like Marilyn Munster's spotless room compared to the rest of the 'council house' hovel. Also, it was interesting how she and Hyacinth were actually somewhat alike- they were desperate to escape from their humble origins but had mixed success. Rose did it via her vamping it up with revolving boyfriends even if she still lived at home while Hyacinth did it by being a hopelessly incompetent social climber who fooled NO ONE.("It's the BUCKET WOMAN!"- was a frequent cry when she appeared and others were desperate to escape her). Ironically, the sister Violet who'd escaped the humble origins the most by marrying wealth was the one who was the most consistantly unhappy with her life whereas the one sister who'd never considered herself to be anything but humble (Daisy) was easily the most content, friendliest and happiest of the four. The only problem with the series was that Hyacinth's neighbor Elizabeth's brother Emmett got a bit tiresome in his cringing over Hyacinth's presence- yet never considered moving away from his sister's house even after he become gainfully employed. Also, the Vicar's Wife got annoying imagining that her husband was ready to foresake his vows at a moment's notice to any friendly female around- even one like Rose who was clearly a generation older than he! Still, it was a fun series and sometimes viewers were treated to Hyacinth (and Elizabeth) doing complicated physical comedy seldom seen in women performers since Lucille Ball's heyday! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 18, 2009, 4:42 pm

Jonathan Taylor Thomas - Celebrities
He had the double fate of many sitcom stars and child stars. Once the sitcom ends, they drift into oblivion and when they grow up it also happens. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on August 18, 2009, 4:12 pm

Jennifer Lopez - Celebrities
J-Lo boned when she got into music and became J-Lo. She was great as an actor. I have to echo the question, Is she relevant anymore? -- Submitted By: (MCS) on August 18, 2009, 4:11 pm

Home Improvement - TV Shows
This show was good for the most part. I would consider it a defining show of the 90s, along with "The Simpsons", "Friends", and the "X-Files." I can't speak for the "X-Files" since I never watched, but the other two had some spectacular falls. "Home Improvement" was no exception, but I think they did cancel this before it became unwatchable like "Friends" and "The Simpsons." With the exception of Randy's cancer scare earlier, the boning all occurred in the last season. That was Jill dreaming of having an affair, Brad doing drugs, and Mark becoming goth. Luckily they ended the show then and finished with a misstep, whereas "Friends" finished at the bottom and "The Simpsons" has been on ten years after it died. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on August 18, 2009, 4:09 pm

Bill Clinton - Celebrities
MCS- there certainly is reason to judge when you have sexual relationships with subordinates at the workplace, and then lie uunder oath about it. It was never about the morality for me, but the legality. The other nutty thing was the democrats foisted off the PC workplace on we the people, then when Bill got caught the democrats and feminists apologized the whole thing away. Anyone that runs a large publically own corporation if they got caught with this would be fired. Of course private industry tends to work, whil government tends not to. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on August 18, 2009, 3:24 am

Madonna - Music Groups
Madonna is a good artist and a brilliant businesswoman. Let us face it, she was of the 80s teen pop class. Her classmates were Tiffany and Debbie Gibson where are they now. She knew she only had 15 minutes of fame so every few years she reinvents herself to stay in the stoplight. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on August 17, 2009, 9:23 pm

Bill O'Reilly - Celebrities
Bill Reilly boned when he left the conservatism and went maverick with a mix of libertarianism and populism. -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on August 17, 2009, 9:02 pm

What a pity. 400,000 hippies in a natural land depression, away from major population centers and nobody thought of chemical weapons. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on August 17, 2009, 8:57 pm

Pirates - Random Topics
Pirates are not romantic, adventurous, or admirable. They were and are bloodthirsty, savage, barbarian criminals and terrorists. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on August 17, 2009, 8:54 pm

Bill Clinton - Celebrities
The Monica Lewisky scandal was bad, but let's face it, he just happened to get caught. Lots of politicians have had affairs. That is no real reason to judge him. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on August 17, 2009, 8:52 pm

Married with Children - TV Shows
If a person does not take this show seriously, then they can see that it is very funny. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on August 17, 2009, 8:44 pm

Melrose Place - TV Shows
I saw a preview for a new version of "Melrose Place." I see there is (or was) a new version of 90210. WTF? Are people that unoriginal they have to recycle old soap operas? What's next, a new "Dynasty" or "Peyton Place?" -- Submitted By: (MCS) on August 17, 2009, 8:42 pm

Woodstock - Random Topics
Isn't it funny how everyone of that baby-boomer era claims to have been there? Especially prevalent in fictional baby-boomers on TV. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 17, 2009, 8:36 pm

Courtship of Eddie's Father, The - TV Shows
Anyone else get the idea that the show ended just in time? As soon as the kid hit puberty, he likely would have been totally out of control because his father had never attempted to really set any rules when he was growing up- just tried to be his 'best friend'. Another 70's parenting approach that's proven disasterous for two generations so far. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 17, 2009, 4:54 pm

Stephanie, sometime I hope you get to Asheville, North Carolina where the Biltmore Estate is located. I don't know what they do to those cows but I've NEVER had richer ice cream than there! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 17, 2009, 4:44 pm

Ryan Seacrest - Celebrities
He's like the Dick Clark of the new millenium. Multi-media entrepreneur. I love how Joel McHale of "The Soup" always makes fun of his height (or lack thereof)! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on August 17, 2009, 1:01 pm

Shark Week - TV Shows
Shark Week is cool! They did a documentary/re-enactment in 2009 about the 1916 shark attacks in New Jersey called "Blood in the Water" that was really good. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on August 17, 2009, 12:44 pm

Well said, DolFan316! I have no doubt the music was awesome but other than that, it was just a bunch of dirty, hippies wacked out on acid rolling around in mud for 3 days. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on August 17, 2009, 11:47 am

Small Wonder - TV Shows
Oh man, I HATED Small Wonder. I was 16 years old in 1985 when it debuted, and I grew up in the 1970s watching all sorts of real classic, CLASSIC tv shows (The Andy Griffith Show, Get Smart, Green Acres, Bewitched, etc., etc. Too many to mention). But by the 1980s, they were taking those classic tv shows off of the free airwaves and replacing them with more recent fare and new syndicated programs like this one. I resented Small Wonder not just because of its insipidness (how it managed to survive for 4 seasons, I'll never know), but because it, among other original syndicated programs ("The Munsters Today", and "The New Gidget" are a couple of other insipid examples that come to mind), was used to replace all those good true classic shows I used to grow up watching. -- Submitted By: (bmovies) on August 17, 2009, 9:59 am

Magnum P.I. - TV Shows
I know that it was far from a 'family show' but I didn't like how barely a thought was given to how his small child who'd witnessed her mother's murder was being cared for after he got shot or joined the Navy! About as neglectful as the "Friends" re parenthood. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 17, 2009, 9:15 am

Ruff & Reddy Show, The - TV Shows
Saw for the first time in decades on a site that rhymes with 'Few Moob' and now I understand why the 'episodes' lasted only four minutes- they were BORING! I mean, the only funny part was the beginning when the backfiring scooter jolted the dog in the air. Even 'Romper Room' seemed more fun than this! I guess they were custom made for us Baby Boomer proto-rug rats' attention span. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 17, 2009, 9:12 am
