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.

Youtube - Websites
Youtube has its pros and cons. I get a real kick out of sharing my video collection (both VHS and DVDs) with the rest of the world. I enjoy uploading my favorite movie clips, commercials, tv shows, etc., and commenting on others. The cons is indeed the copyright system. The most egregious example i can think of is the little rascals/our gang films. Many of them are in public domain, but there is a german company that holds the distribution rights of those films to europe. Not the copyrights. Just the distribution rights. However, anyone who uploads a little rascals film, even if its in the public domain, sooner or later gets a "copyright notice" that the german company filed and the film is pulled. -- Submitted By: (bmovies) on April 30, 2009, 1:53 pm

Home Alone - Movie Series
I liked the first one. I tend to watch it when it pops up on tv close to Christmas time. The second one was weak. They pretty much repeated the gags from the first one, only didnt do them as good, and it wasnt believable that his parents would lose him a second time, plus not believable that Kevin would be running up against and battling Harry and Marv again. Its not THAT small of a world. 3rd one simply sucked. -- Submitted By: (bmovies) on April 30, 2009, 12:54 pm

Who in their right mind would want so many kids? She already has 6, why did she need more? Now the older kids are going to be neglected as Octomom and her friends and family spend all their time raising and caring for the octuplets. Even though she is unemployed and each child costs a fortune to raise, she decided to have MORE, until she now has 14. Know what? I bet she'll be discontented once those 8 grow up, then will have still even more kids in the future.

X-Files - TV Shows
I liked The X-Files in the very beginning, when the format was "freak of the week." That was the X-Files of Tooms, the Fluke Man, the little green bugs, etc. It was fun. At that time, the story arc (Mulder's sister, the Mulder-Scully relationship, the big conspiracy) was more of a backdrop that added some dimension to the show. After a while, it just came to be about chasing the conspiracy, and worse yet, a lot of "will they, won't they" crap. It was a soap opera. For me, the show improved with the introduction of Doggett. He brought a different style that freshened things up, while the show got back to its roots - two agents investigating the paranormal. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 30, 2009, 3:10 am

Starship Troopers - Movie Series
I agree with the reason that this had little to do with the books, but the reason about the antiquated war tactics is equally as valid. I'll add another: the logic doesn't really work out for a bunch of stuff. The stated logic regarding why only soldiers are allowed to vote doesn't really work in the book or the movie: it is said that this system is used because it ensures a balance of power, and "the maximum amount of power that you can wield is equal to the maximum amount of responsibility that you can accept for wielding it." This doesn't quite work, because I can presumably vote again and again and again, and affect neither society nor myself in the least (think everyone who voted for Ron Paul in the 2008 election), however if I die to pay for this, I am permanently affected by this irrevocably, even though my ability to vote had no effect. If they had just said something trite like "if you're brave enough to hold a gun and get shot at you're responsible enough to cast a ballot" I'd have brought it more. The thing about women being better pilots in High G environments is questionable as well: not because I have a problem with women being portrayed in such roles, but because at the level of the forces that we're dealing with, the slight advantage that women have over men in high g conditions would be moot, and you'd probably be better off using pilotless vehicles run by AI or broadcast signals from mother ships that remain in orbit. It's like saying "I'm going to fire a bullet at you at the speed of light, what would you rather have as armor, iron or steel?" Of course, some of these comments veer off into the book too, so I'm going to stop here. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 29, 2009, 4:10 pm

Captain N: The Game Master - TV Shows
A show that messes up video game characters this bad could only have been done on purpose. I know graphics in the games of the time weren't that advanced and often only a brief description was offered in the instruction manual, but even the most basic and obvious of character traits were changed for no good reason. How does Simon Belmont go from fearless vampire hunter to a whiny primadonna in World War I aviator garb? How do you turn Mega Man into a green midget with the voice of a chain smoker? Why was King Hippo blue, or even in this show for that matter? They could have picked a much better representative for Punch Out if they had to. Then there was Pit from Kid Icarus, with his 80s hairdo and faux-Latin manner of speaking. Considering this show as intended as little more than a half-hour commercial for Nintendo, you would think there would have been more effort put into it. -- Submitted By: (LoyalPigeon) on April 29, 2009, 2:25 pm

Cube - Movie Series
The instant a sequel was made, the entire series boned the fish. Film directors, and film students of all genres should have a copy of this film series in their library. It so perfectly illustrates a number of concepts that film makers don't get: 1) Everything doesn't need a sequel. 2) Some questions are better left unanswered for the audience. 3) More money != (does not equal) better movie. The first movie almost qualified as a parable: the Cube was a setting, but also a faceless, nameless, anonymous character in the way the Starship Enterprise is both setting and character in its franchise. No explanation was given as to how it came to be, beyond hints that one of the prisoners was responsible for designing a part of it. This ambiguity of purpose, combined with the unavoidable and obvious lethal nature of the cube, was the centerpiece of the story: these prisoners were trapped in this gigantic, inescapable, death trap, that some of them in part helped to build, but no one was really responsible for. The very real possibility that not one single person knew the magnitude of the death trap that they had helped to create was a plot point that was far more interesting than the explanations for the cube that were given in the later films, partially because this sort of thing has happened in real life: individual members of an organization think they're just helping out the cause/just being human or normally bad and are no worse than any ordinary person, but together they create unspeakable evil, that no one or only a few high ranking members fully comprehend. None of this was certain, but the way it was handled gave one something to think about after the credits rolled, something that very few movies rarely do. The second and third cube movies devolved into cliche quickly. Cube 2 left questions unanswered, but they weren't interesting esoteric questions that added to the story imply by being left unanswered, rather plot threads were introduced that were simply left hanging. A plot point involving IZON was introduced, but no one is ever told exactly what IZON is, and the one person who goes survives to tell the tale is immediately executed upon escape, without explaining everything that was introduced before. The third movie just needlessly complicates the first movie, and while it is a decent stand alone feature, it shouldn't have been made in reference to Cube. So this movie boned on the first sequel. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 29, 2009, 12:57 pm

I don't know how I feel about JumpTheShark getting canned. On the one hand, TVGuide undeniably ruined a piece of internet history, no exaggeration. Some statements about shows that were on at the time that are off now were lightning in a bottle, and will never be written again. On the other hand, and I'm not trying to suck up or anything, do you really think you have a worse deal now than when JTS was in existence? Now you can comment on when practically anything started sucking. JumpTheShark barely had a page up where you could comment on music groups for a short time before that went down. You couldn't comment on movies, you couldn't comment on celebrities, you couldn't comment on phenomenons. In the end, TVGuide's move benefited all of us, because it burned the deadwood that let something better come along. -- Submitted By: () on April 29, 2009, 12:19 pm

With it's razor-sharp wit satire and self-parody, I believe the show never EVER boned. Although, I'm sure a few parents would have liked to have deboned (and stuffed) Bullwinkle after one time he said (in puppet form) that the kids at home could pull off the channel changer knobs so they could guarantee being able to watch the show next week. Yeah, as hard as it may to believe, a bunch of kids managed to fight and overcome their exhaustion from their journey of travelling from the living room floor all the way to the front of the set to remove said knob because remotes hadn't been invented yet. Oh, and yes it's also true that almost all those sets were still in black and white. Somehow many of us survived those trials growing up! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 29, 2009, 11:36 am

Magnum P.I. - TV Shows
Never boned. A show that centred around four single men who never made the mistake of settling down, getting a girlfriend who lasted more than an episode (Agatha Chumleigh was as close as it got) or changing in any way that altered the dynamic of the show. I didn't like that they negated the really gutsy series finale for one more season and a fairly lacklustre farewell. I liked Magnum as much as anybody, but killing him off at the end of the series was creative, memorable. Putting him back in the navy brought the show full-circle, but didn't really make a whole lot of sense. Anyway, that's not a BTF thing. The last season was pretty good on the whole. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 29, 2009, 7:11 am

Happy Days - TV Shows
Has to be when Richie and Ralph suddenly "joined the army." When Ron Howard and Donnie Most left, the show lost more of what little remaining focus it had. Richie was the central character, surrounded by his friends, Ralph, Potsie and the Fonz. With Richie and Ralph leaving, Fonz became even more central, and he and Potsie just sort of hung around with Richie's parents. To fill the vacuum, we got Ted McGinley, Jenny Piccolo becoming a real character, Fonzie's serious girlfriend and a kid, and bearded Fonzie the teacher. The show slipped in many ways before that, but Richie and Ralph leaving was the real tipping point. Anything after was crap. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 29, 2009, 6:51 am

Thing about the Sven injury was, this was due to a whole lot of plot chopping and rewriting on both sides of the ocean. You hear those stories about people in cartoons dying in the original script, then getting put back in in a voice over. This is what happened here. Technically, in Japan Sven was dead. They just didn't kill him over here, and the way they showed episodes over here, it made it look like he was just too injured to pilot the Lion. Also, extra footage was made for Voltron that never aired in Japan.

Just popped in for a look at JTS and found a really lame entertainment magazine in its place, something that really seems like the antithesis of what the site was. So, let me get this straight...TV Guide paid a buttload of money for the site, just to scrap it and put a crappy blog in its place while retaining the title and a few of the categories just to remind us of how bloody stupid they are. At best, some executive just doesn't get it. At worst, TV Guide has hijacked a pop culture term. I don't feel comfortable saying "Jump the Shark" anymore if TV Guide owns it, especially when they bought it just to draw more traffic (under false pretenses) to a really subpar entertainment site. Jumping the Shark was about us, the TV viewers, poking fun at the industry. It empowered the viewers. TV Guide destroyed that, and replaced it with mindless hype about TV shows.

Lion King - Movie Series
There is a world of difference between being inspired by other people's works and ripping off other people's works. Also, I already know Kimba and the Lion King are indeed two different stories. Kimba wanted to unite people and animals, while Simba had to reclaim his crown stolen from him by his evil uncle (The Lion King's story is based on Hamlet). The storyline isn't what's the same...it's the characters. You argue that the reason there's a white lion in the production shot is because there's light shining on him from behind, making him white. If the light is what's making him white, why are his face and left hind leg, which are in the shade, also white instead of tan, like the other lion in the shot? And how do you know these testimonials are lies from "disgruntled janitors" or other unhappy employees? But why do I bother? Even if Disney wrote a totally legit written confession complete with a notary that they knowingly ripped off Kimba, you'd still refuse to believe it. -- Submitted By: () on April 28, 2009, 2:49 pm

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? - TV Shows
The show is called "are you smarter than a 5th grader", yet a lot of the tougher questions are taught in either middle or high school. How ironic. But still fun to watch! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 28, 2009, 1:09 pm

I have to say the twist at the end of the season finale was just a perfect fit. A reflection of out of the box thinking and sub plot planning that all culminated in the finale. Like it should be. -- Submitted By: (Hikariu) on April 28, 2009, 11:30 am

Beverly Hillbillies - TV Shows
I say it never boned, but it did come within sight of the fish when the Clampetts started having multi-episode trips to New York and England. Fortunately, those episodes were funny, as the show's fish-out-of-water humour actually got a little fresher in these unfamiliar places. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 9:38 am

Transformers, The - TV Shows
One of my favourite animated shows at the time, but it boned with Transformers: The Movie. The movie itself was great, but the following season of the show picked up where it left off, with a different setting, different characters and really a whole different style. Didn't like it as well after that. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 9:32 am

King of the Hill - TV Shows
This show boned when it went from being a sitcom to an animated soap opera. It was good in the beginning. The characters each had their shtick, and they got into funny situations. Then we started getting character development, and the characters started growing as people and going through major life events that we were supposed to care about. I just wanted to laugh. The show was still funny for a while, but never as funny as in the beginning. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 9:27 am

House - TV Shows
I'm reluctant to say that a show currently in production has never boned, but this one is still good so far, although House is not nearly as funny as he was back in the beginning. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 9:21 am

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - TV Shows
Once the setting moved to the Searcher, it was a different show, and not a good one. The new characters did nothing for me. I hated Hawk. And worst of all, they dropped Tweaky's Mel Blanc voice in favour of some whiny kid voice. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 9:18 am

A-Team, The - TV Shows
The A-Team boned when they stopped doing the big build scenes before the climax of each episode. Actually, the precise BTF moment, for me, was when they went through the process of armoring a truck just to crash it through a wall and forget about it. The big battles with the improvised weapons were what made the early episodes really great. At some point, these kind of faded away in favour of just wrapping the show up with more injury-free shooting. Wasn't the same after that. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 9:13 am

American Idol - TV Shows
The fourth judge, for sure. The show has a hard enough time finishing when it should without one more opinion thrown into the mix. Not to mention that the three judges had such good chemistry up to now. Subsequent efforts to shoehorn Kara into the show have only hurt that dynamic more. Kara just seems more obnoxious and annoying every week, she never has anything unique to add, spouts the same nonsense over and over, and doesn't seem to have the first clue that although American Idol has nothing to do with art, the audience is supposed to believe it does. And she knows bugger-all about art. And she apparently can't count either. Where did they find her? -- Submitted By: () on April 28, 2009, 9:05 am

Smallville - TV Shows
I have to say although the show declined a little in Season 7, Season 8 was the big drop-off. Michael Rosenbaum is gone, leaving a pretty big hole, despite efforts to keep talking about Lex, showing his picture and occasionally showing the back of an anonymous bald guy. All of the "grownups" are gone - Jonathan Kent is long dead, Martha just vanished at some point, and they killed off Lionel in Season 7 (John Glover was one of the show's biggest assets IMO). And for that matter, very little of Smallville actually takes place in Smallville as of Season 8. Throwing in a heavily retconned Doomsday has not helped, and really seems premature in terms of the Superman mythos. With Gough and Millar no longer at the helm, the feel of the show is different. And yet the one thing that hasn't changed is the no-flights rule, which stopped making sense at least two or three seasons ago. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 8:45 am

Jack Ryan films - Movie Series
From Alec Baldwin to Harrison Ford to Ben Affleck? This series of films was hurt by not having a CONSISTENT and GOOD Jack Ryan. Personally I liked Alec from "Hunt for Red October" but Harrison Ford was good as well, it was the inconsistency that hurt the franchise, and unlike James Bond- this change of stars didnt seem to work. And whenever you have Ben Affleck involved- order up some extra vinegar to add with your Fish & Chips.....it's BTF time. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 28, 2009, 8:39 am

Lion King - Movie Series
Ok, research I've done: I own 3 DVD's of Kimba the White Lion, and I can and have watched the rest on YouTube. I also own and have seen The Lion King. It's not the same story, period. So far as the rest of what you presented, 1) people can find similarities anywhere. Add that into the fact that in many shows, there are some stock scenes that are commonly used/drawn (IE little protagonist stares up into big antagonist's eyes in defiance, man walking away from building nonchalantly as it explodes, camera focusing in on gun barrel as a shot is fired), and you have less of a slam dunk case than you would think for saying that Lion King is ripped off from Kimba. 2) The testimony of the people on that web page you gave me, I'm sorry to say, means squat. All of the statements are from the Kimba development team, and of course they aren't biased toward their creation in any way, are they? So far as the records of Disney officials "admitting" to ripping off Kimba, recordings or signed affidavits from former Disney execs or impartial 3rd party witnesses or it didn't happen. Testimony from pissed off recently fired ex-janitor X who just happened to be walking by the boardroom when the crime was confessed doesn't cut it. 3) The "white" lion in the preproduction shot, isn't. Take a look at the pic again: the plants in the shot are also white. You shine a bright enough light on an object of any color, and it looks white, this is a fact. The fact that this has happened to other plants in the light that the lion cub in question is in shows that this has also happened to the lion cub. Using your logic, and the kind of evidence you have given me, I could say that Hara and Buroson stole Fist of the North Star directly from Mad Max. I could say that J.J. Abrams stole Cloverfield from the Emmerich version of Godzilla. I could say that Gargoyles was ripping off of X-Men and Superman in places, and that Spawn, the Animation was ripping off of Gargoyles. I'm not going to say that Disney has never done questionable or dirty things in animation or business (among other things, read up on Dan O'Neil and the Air Pirates to see how Disney virtually single-handedly fucked over the entire copyright system, and implemented those 200+ year copyrights in use today). However, there is a difference between ripping someone off, and simply making different use of similar archetypal characters than the previous guy. -- Submitted By: () on April 27, 2009, 10:13 pm
