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.

James Bond - Movie Series
Hye in defense of the "Remake" of Casino Royale- this was done as a comedy by Woody Allen, as sort of an Austin Powers like send up (before Austin Powers) in the 60's or 70's) only recently had the rights become available to do this film as a real BOND film. So lets cut a little bit of slack to the franchise over this "Remake in Name Only" -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 28, 2009, 6:45 am

James Bond - Movie Series
The series has had its low points but never boned. The main reason for this is the fact that the films are essentially stand alones. However, it could bone if they keep remaking old titles. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 28, 2009, 6:40 am

Joey (TV series) - TV Shows
the reason this show boned was because it was a spin off of "Friends." "Friends" had boned the fish about three years before it ended/ By that point, people were tired of it.

Martial Law - TV Shows
It was this show that taught me not to trust TV producers. It all started back when Season 1 of Martial Law ended. The new executive producers Lee Goldberg and William Rabkin came on alt.asian-movies and began telling us about the "exciting new changes" they had in mind. Many people balked at the changes. I was young and naive, and I said that we should "wait and see the new season before judging it". After all, Season 1 of Martial Law wasn't Shakespeare; it certainly could be improved upon, right? Well, the second season aired that fall and the so-called "haters" were absolutely right. Ratings plummeted and the show was canceled. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 26, 2009, 8:22 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
This show used to be great it was around since I was three years old so it was a big part of my childhood, it used to be realistic despite being a cartoon with people that have yellow skin and nothing too over the top happening while being really funny, but the new writers ruined it by having random wacky things things happen all the time like characters will fly without the use of an airplane or wings and mythical creatures appearing out of now where, and most of the characters including Marge and Lisa have become idiots. -- Submitted By: (comic_guy87) on May 26, 2009, 5:35 pm

King of the Hill - TV Shows
This was one of the greatest animated sitcoms ever but then Luanne had to get involved with Lucky an ugly, bucktoothed,middle aged, idiot, and she had stated in previous episodes that she would never ever marry someone who was so many years older than her and she was repulsed by hillbillies and the new writers had to ruin it and worse off they had her marry him and he's not funny at all how many times can you stand "duh I done gone and slipped on pee pee at the costco" and worse off when she became pregnant she was pregnant for two years and did not show any signs until the episode where she gave birth, another reason was the death of Cotton Hill a great character they could've handled it better like they just had to retcon his earlier prejudice of the Japanese even though he felt bad for what he did to them and in tern forgave them for what they did to him in an earlier episode and he could've had a more heroic death like an intruder breaking into the house and about to kill the Hills when he takes a bullet for them and fights off the intruder before being taken off to the hospital instead of swallowing shrimp, developing an allergy and falling onto a grill after picking a fight with the chef, Bobby, and Didi with G.H. could've visited him in the hospital there was no excuse for that Bobby could've handled it, Peggy shouldn't have bitched him out before he died you just don't to that to a dying person, and they should not have cremated him that was a big waste in an earlier episode he fought hard to earn a veteran's grave, then there's the character flanderizations like Bobby being extremely immature he was more mature in the earlier episodes, Luanne's over exaggerated stupidity to the point where she became the very thing she never wanted to be a hillbilly, the character background changes like Peggy living on a ranch in Montana she never stated she lived on a ranch before, her mother having changed completely in appearance and attitude and Peggy claiming to have not talked to her in 20 years despite her visiting in past episodes and them having a fine relationship, and Luanne's father's change in personality and appearance in past episodes he was described as a small timid man who looked like Peggy if she were a dude and he had fled because Leanne was abusive to him but in the episode where he appeared he was completely changed he was a big fat guy who looked nothing like Peggy he claimed to have never talked to Hank despite him saying he enjoyed his company in past episodes, he claimed to not have seen Luanne since she was a little girl despite her last seeing him when she was just a few years younger than her present age, and he was changed into a sleazy, lazy, con artist who supposibly ran off because he's addicted to drugs, and last off all very few of the episodes have anything memorable or exciting happen like in past episodes. -- Submitted By: (comic_guy87) on May 26, 2009, 5:11 pm

NBA on ABC - TV Shows
While the NBA has become much more watered down in the past decade or so, the quality of the television coverage has dropped significantly as well. ABC's NBA broadcasts completely pale in comparison to NBC's. They lack the drama that was a strong element of NBC's broadcast, as well as the great theme music, which has been replaced with the pop artist du jour (Rob Thomas, the Pussycat Dolls, etc.). Muting the crowd noise, showing the same four teams over and over again (look at their regular season broadcast schedule...it's the Cavs, Fakers, Heat, Mavs and almost no one else). And the sharply reduced broadcast schedule is terrible. Look at the 2009 playoffs and the extremely minimal amount of games televised on ABC...and the teams which were selected. Boring mismatches were selected over exciting series just because of the teams involved...Fakers, Cavs, etc. We just had a three-day weekend. Back in the day, NBC would have aired one game per day. ABC aired one game total (Fakers, of course), because showing reruns of Ugly Betty or Desperate Housewives is *far* more interesting than the NBA playoffs, as we all know. -- Submitted By: (neo11) on May 25, 2009, 11:53 pm

Alien Movies - Movie Series
Chubby Rain nails it again! The BTF moment for the Alien series was DEFINITELY the the opening of Alien 3: Hicks and Newt (Ripley's fellow survivors from Aliens) are killed off as the credits roll. And because we're led to care about them as the Aliens story unfolds, the fact that their deaths are throwaways is a double slap in the face. The fourth movie didn't do anything to redeem the mess from the third - the writer/director team of Joss Whedon and Jean-Pierre Jenuet seemed to be operating with the goal of "let's see how much weirdness we can cram down the throats of the fans." And the AvP movies have done even less to redeem the mess from the fourth. That's very unfortunate, because the AvP concept makes pretty decent reading - too bad the movies dropped the ball. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 25, 2009, 9:25 am

This was a conversation between Howard and Jon Hein, to which Howard said something like it was good they were not messing with a proven success. Im sure Jon Hein has been flooded with emails and messages about this, but Im sure TV Guide sent some hush money or has him promised to never bring it up. Jon Hein is the true definition of "Boning the Fish" via his sellout and cowardly inaction on the topic.

Jon Hein - Celebrities
ChubbyRain - I concur 100% with your comment. As if Hein's selling a totally cool site down the river to TV Guide wasn't a big enough slap in the face to JTS fans, his never say anything about the results is a sucker punch below the belt. I wonder how well he's been sleeping lately. To answer your question, "Scottish site" refers to the long-standing thespian superstition about the Shakespeare play "MacBeth." It's considered bad luck to mention the play by name, so it's referred to by the euphemism "The Scottish Play" to avoid the curse. (Look up "The Scottish Play" on Wikipedia for more details.) The "About Us" page of BTF does an artful job of avoiding mentioning JTS by name -- even referring to it is "the site that shall never be named," which struck me as being very reminiscent of the MacBeth superstition. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 24, 2009, 11:20 pm

Zorro - Movie Series
While not without its own historical inaccuracies and flaws, 'Mask of Zorro'(1998) was fairly entertaining and introduced an entire new generation to the swordsman via Banderas. Unfortunately, it got followed up with 'Legend of Zorro'(2005). Discrpencies? Too many to list but to keep this from becoming too long I'll stick to the most major of them. Divorce amongst Spanish aristocrats in 1850 California ?! Not quicky but a very difficult and lengthy process. While informal separations and 'outside families' were looked upon with nudges and winks, a divorced person (especially a woman) would have been considered an outcast by society NOT the cream of it back then. Would the Hispanic and Native American Californians have cheered the idea of becoming a US state? Considering that only 4 years earlier, battles of the Mexican-American war had been fought there and most of them had at the time considered themselves to be Mexican citizens, it's doubtful they would have supported statehood in great numbers or furvor. Of course, it was somewhat out of their hands due to the larger numbers of '49ers who'd settled in the formerly sleepy mission town of San Franscisco .However; oddly enough the movie entirely ignores the existance of Gold Rush and its impact on California. One must say that Disney's been somewhat consistant in their historic lapses re 1850's California- as earlier movies totally ignored the existance of Hispanic and Native American Californians when depicting US American 49'ers settling there so maybe they think this balanced their earlier lapses out. Oh, and I'm not overlooking the Confederate soldiers in 1850 California. Not only was this ten years BEFORE the War Between the States but California was nowhere near any of the battlegrounds. And, Zorro himself became a henpecked cartoon in this movie. Ay caramba! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 23, 2009, 4:55 pm

Pocahontas - Movie Series
I'll never forget being on a plane circling the Norfolk, Virginia airport and seeing a child in the seat in front of me playing with a Pocahontas doll singing that song and her parents all excited that they were going to go to nearby Jamestown to see 'where it all happened'! Since I didn't know any of them from Adam, I couldn't say anything but I was screaming inside how Disney was passing off this totally contrived and preposterous story as a historical biopic- and how so many parents of young children were doing NOTHING to counter the campaign. Just buying the plastic dolls. Anyone who's ever been to the Jamestown area knows that it's a flat,buggy swamp and NOT some mountainous Pacific Northwest-type coastline and the nearest prominent waterfall's hundreds of miles away in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Pocahontas was a child about eleven years old when the Jamestown settlers first encountered her NOT some leggy supermodel in a mini buckskin deal and John Smith was about 40 and middle aged not a romance novel coverboy! And when she came to London as an adult she wore rather conservative English fashions. I don't want to sound harsh but had she appeared on the streets of 1616 London in that mini buckskin deal, she'd have been loudly jeered, had all kinds of vile things thrown at her and very likely assaulted. No, I didn't bother to see the movies but I got enough of seeing this hooey just from coming attractions and ads for it to spot unbelievable discripancies and loathe that they had the gall to pitch it as having historic basis. They may as well have called her 'Little Red Feather' and had fictionalized settlers and locales. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 23, 2009, 4:41 pm

Super Mario World - TV Shows
The SNES game was set in normal Mario time. So why is this cartoon set in the caveman times? Just because Yoshi happens to be a dinosaur? Stupid. Day one! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 23, 2009, 11:01 am

Rosie O'Donnell - Celebrities
Between her rant at Tom Selleck for starring in an NRA advertisement because they are pro-gun (and darn! Wouldn't you know it? She starred in KMart advertisements, and they SELL guns!), her hatred for American soldiers, and all the other stuff, I think I hear the Jaws theme song whenever she's on TV. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 23, 2009, 9:55 am

Among the first cartoon shows that takes a classic cartoon character and makes it "hip" to appeal to kids who want to be "cool". Give me classic Yogi Bear, please. Thank you. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 23, 2009, 9:30 am

Everybody loves Raymond - TV Shows
Debra is a domineering and controlling woman towards her husband Raymond. She dislikes her mother-in-law Marie for being domineering and controlling towards her. That is ironic, yet funny. And you can't help but feel bad for poor Robert, who's always dealt a bad hand in life. It's hard to say when it jum-BONED! When it boned. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 23, 2009, 9:13 am

Fox News - Random Topics
The people on Fox news are obnoxious? And I suppose the people on MSNBC aren't? If you want obnoxious, three words: Bill...freaking...Maher. Watch him, listen to him, and you'll see he takes the cake. Before you say I'm biased, no I'm not. He calls himself a libertarian. Also, it's good to hear that people pan MSNBC for being biased. Everything's balancing out. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 23, 2009, 8:59 am

IMDB - Websites
Im sure there are some innacuracies on IMDB but for the most part I appreciate being able to look up cast lists, actors and directors to see other works they are in, love the fan reviews and the discussion boards. HOWEVER, thre is something odd about that page, in 2007 when SYFY raped the classic Flash Gordon Franchise several of us who were ig FG fans went on to rip the show. Out of nowhere a group of angry show defenders showed up who "loved the show" despite having no fan presence on the web. Then the show got cancelled- all the "fans disappeared", then we ripped the show for a few more months, then the DVD was releaseed and all of our bad commentrs were deleted retroactively and a dozen new fans talking up the DVD showed up out of nowhere, and for 10 days all of our posts were delted, despite the content. After 10 days the second set of new fans went away and we could post again. Shady internet marketing at it's worsst and IMDB was helping with the censorship- for that, they bone. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 23, 2009, 4:52 am

People attack Fox news because the people on it are some of the most obnoxious out there, like Hannity and O'Reilly. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 23, 2009, 1:05 am

Seinfeld - TV Shows
This was one of the most annoying shows in the history of television. There was nothing funny about a bunch of middle-aged singles in New York City who made stupid observations. Aside from Jerry's annoying voice, the fact that he repeated everything made him all the more annoying. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 23, 2009, 1:03 am

Marcus, what's your deal with IMDB? First, who cares if the exact date of Englebert Humperdink's marriage is correct? Second, I did EXTREMELY limited research that showed the year is right, and the date is probably right too, but it just doesn't matter. No one should be writing papers based on what's on IMDB anyway. It's like criticizing Wikipedia for having inaccurate info. It's just a place to go discuss movies, see reader reviews and maybe a plot synopsis to MAYBE help you decide to see a movie or not. You're going to need an exterminator for that bug up your butt. -- Submitted By: (Dropmurphy) on May 22, 2009, 8:01 pm

Fox News - Random Topics
"I wonder why people who criticize Fox News for being biased towards the right don't criticize MSNBC for being biased towards the left." Who says I don't? I think all televised news, especially the dedicated news channels are garbage and biased. They're also way sensationalist, they jump the gun on unconfirmed stories, and are generally incompetent news sources. There's way too much crap going on on screen usually as well. No wonder everyone has ADD these days. -- Submitted By: (Dropmurphy) on May 22, 2009, 7:17 pm
