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.

Mythbusters - TV Shows
This show kind of jumped for me when I saw how informal the hosts were with their experiments, and how they sort of "rigged" them to get the outcome that they wanted. Example 1) Adam and Jamie test the myth of the man being electrocuted by urinating on a subway rail. Basically, they go out to a rail yard, electrify a rail, and then proceed to stream various amounts of urine (or uric acid or something) on it to see if the stream can conduct electricity. The outcome is that they don't get a a charge conducted until they put the stream about 2 or 3 inches from the rail and dump it out all at once. This is supposed to prove to the audience that you can't electrocute yourself by peeing on a subway rail, because look at all the trouble the hosts had getting the stream to conduct by setting up circumstances that would never occur in real life. Problem is, I'm not really convinced: peeing in a dark, enclosed subway is much different than doing the same on an exposed rail in an exposed rail yard with a good breeze where no one else has urinated before. What about vapor from urine and other liquids floating around that might conduct electricity that would hang around in an enclosed area like a subway? Granted, Adam and Jamie are probably (as in virtually certainly with a 99.999999999% probability) right about this, however the way the experiment was done just seemed sloppy, sloppy enough to leave a real question about the question of the counterclaim. 2) Proving that getting thrown through/jumping a glass window is generally a bad idea. For this experiment, the hosts made a mold of a torso with the consistency of the human body, and covered it with a fake skin that had about the texture and toughness of human skin. Then they put clothes on it, and ran it through a glass window they had set up. The idea was, the model was supposed to be filled with glass, thus proving that running through glass is a bad idea. However it didn't work out like that, as there were only minor cuts to the model. They repeated the experiment several times, making changes such as taking the model's clothes off, running it through faster, etc. Finally they took the model's skin off, at which point they got a result where the model's body was filled with glass. This was supposed to "prove" that running through glass windows is fatal. Once again, I have no issue with the conclusion, as there are enough documented cases of people doing this in real life and killing/injuring themselves to dissuade anyone from actually trying this. However all the above experiment proved was that if I'm going to jump through a glass window, don't do it with no clothes and no skin on, and really, when is THAT ever going to happen? These are just two examples, but a lot of the experiments I have seen on this show could cause the show to be called "MythReenforcers" as opposed to "MythBusters." (The Tesla vibration experiment was another one of those). -- Submitted By: () on April 23, 2009, 11:27 am

Elvis Presley - Celebrities
Sorry, but since this is the BoneTheFish Site and NOT an Elvis Presley Worship Site, I'm going to have to be honest and say that I believe Elvis Boned then got De-Boned. How? Growing up in the South in the 1970's, I can testify that for the last 5+ years of his life, he was considered a has-been and a loser who'd made some cool songs and a few so-so movies WAY back when but, by and large, was believed to have had his best days behind him as he seemed to be doomed to be zooming towards middleaged mediocrity while holed up in Graceland- popping out every so often to do rehashes of his songs in Vegas. Oh, yeah, every so often there was a story of some deluded fan who'd take out marriage licenses and claim he was going to marry them but, surprise, he'd not show up because he'd never heard of them. And, even to admit to being a fan at that time was to invite folks to mock you as a yahoo and loser. But then, it happened! August, 1977- The King Left The Building for the Last Time! Suddenly, everyone remembered how talented he was! Suddenly, he was transformed into this eternally young superstar who could do no wrong! Now, folks were PROUD to be his fans,Graceland became a New Mecca and A Cult Was Born- the likes of which I'd never seen before and would never see again until Princess Diana's death 20 years later! Even as stories of his shadow side became public knowledge, they seemed to only enhance rather than dim the ardor for All Things Elvis! And, of course, there came all The Post-August,1977 Sightings eagerly printed by tabloids that the many fans happily accepted as proof that the King was alive! As one of the categories says, only with Lisa Marie's short-lived marriage to Michael Jackson did many of them realize that Elvis was no longer alive. One can be sure that if Elvis was anywhere on this planet with a breath left in him, EVERYONE would have heard his outrage over that union -even if it may not have been for the 'right' reasons! The fans even managed to get the US Postal Service to quit being so stodgy and stuffy with its old rules for stamps and have Elvis stamps issued that sold faster than hotcakes. The US Postal Service learned a major lesson from that and stamp subjects have never been the same since! When did he originally bone? I'd say when he signed up with Colonel Tom Parker who Pat'Mr. Haney' Buttram said had run a dancing chicken carney stand using an electrified grid! One might say this proved somewhat prophetic for how he may have treated Elvis. Of course, it didn't help that many of his family and so-called friends were eagerly willing to sponge off him for so many years! The tragedy is that Elvis DID have phenomenal talent and could have done so much more had he dumped/kept out so many users. And spending decades not being able to set foot out of a door without screaming 'fans' ambushing him can't have helped anything! So, now visiting Memphis and seeing everyone lined up around Graceland and even crossing themselves in front of his grave as though he was an Apostle, it's easy for me to see that Elvis DeBoned when he was able to go to the next world AWAY from all the exploiters, users and fans- and I'd like to think has been having a good laugh ever since where ever he is! -- Submitted By: () on April 23, 2009, 10:06 am

Stan Lee - Celebrities
I used to think Stan Lee was awesome, until I realized that he was riding off real greats like Jack Kirby, and Steve Ditko with the classic creations from Marvel. Ironically, Stan "The Man" Lee has had such great ideas as "Ravage 2099" and the Pam Anderson inspired "Stripperella" comics ever since. Wow Stan, without the great Kirby and Ditko to ride on their coat-tails, it's pretty hard to steal, I mean "create" any new ideas... what a hack. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 23, 2009, 6:32 am

Oh where to start on this Fish Bone Filet? Changing the name to "SyFy", which is Polish slang for Syphilis? Showing "Wrasslin" which has nothing to do with Sci Fi? Bonnie Hammer calling the fans "Nerds living in their parent's basement?" Reality shows like "Ghost Hunters" and "Who want to be a Superhero?"

Star Trek's from the 60's Outer Limits twilight zones old BSG, new BSG the prisoner roundtable discussions of sci fi books and movies feature movie of the week with specials and interviews - take a pick of any cool SCI FI movie from the last 90 years- from Metropolis to Jurassic park Anime Sliders even take popular websites and make them into shows (AICN, CHUD, BTF!!) to move that content to television for cross support an "AT THE MOVIES" with sci fi- review new and old sci fi films etc. etc. And we get wrasslin and ghost hunters and reality shows now- I hate you Bonnie Hammer!!

The more I look back on this show, the more I realize that it was almost a perfect show- took chances, and won almost everytime, rewarded the long time viewers as well. Plot threads ALWAYS came back into play, writing always was sharp, unexpected plot twists didnt suck and the ending (unlike Battlestar and Sopranos) left you shocked and disturbed, just like the show did for 7 seasons.

Monkees, The - Music Groups
To whoever said the Monkees are a bad Beatles clone, I'm sorry but you don't know much about this show or group. After the success of A Hard Days Night the idea of a TV version of the Beatles was hatched. All of the members had various musical experience but were hired on appearance and acting abilities. After being denied initially to play their own instruments the guys banded together and stood up to the powers that be, threatening to walk if they weren't given musical control. The powers that be allowed it and the Monkees set about making their music their own way. After the second season the network wanted to do a third season but the guys nixed the idea because they felt the scripts were getting a little old and they wanted to try new things, namely, television variety specials, movies, and recording and touring. The very definition of boning the fish is basically not knowing when to walk away or running out of ideas, then making changes in an attempt to shake things up. These guys walked away from a successful show as well as a heaping plate of fish. No boning went on here. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 22, 2009, 11:38 pm

I don't like Bush or country music. But the people that listen to their music do. These idiot Chicks basically spit in the faces of their entire demographic.

I didn't start getting into this show until the 2005 revival. I have vague recollections of it on PBS years ago, but it seemed strange and British to me then.

Green Acres - TV Shows
Since today's Earth Day, it's as good a time as any to salute this show! Why? Because it also happened to have been Eddie Albert's birthday and he himself really DID have green acres of his own with an organic vegetable garden in Los Angeles decades before it was trendy to do so! More importantly, he was instrumental in getting rid of DDT from the US after having seen its effects on sea birds while frequenting the California beaches. He was one of the speakers at the very first Earth Day back in 1970,too- and he would live to be a very healthy 99! But enough of the blah-blah! This show really ROCKED because it was in its own alternate universe where illogical logic ruled that Oliver never 'got' but that Lisa, the Hooterville denizens and we viewers enjoyed at his expense! Among my fave moments? When Lisa's visiting pet duck Lazlo started quacking at Arnold the Pig who oinked in response, Oliver commented that those two couldn't possible understand each other- to which Lisa said "Of course not. Arnold speaks English while Laslo speaks Hungarian!" What was also odd that it was set in the very same town as "Petticoat Junction" yet it was its staid sister show's cutting edge cousin! Think about it. The closest to anything odd happening in "PJ" was when the unimaginatively named Dog would seem to understand what the human characters were saying. And "Beverly Hillbillies" started out sharp with its country folk striking it rich and outsmarting the folks in Beverly but soon devolved into a live action cartoon! But even with all three shows characters knowing and interacting with each other, "Green Acres" was easily able to outpace the others. Heck, even Sam Drucker was a zillion times more offbeat when Lisa and Oliver visited in "Green Acres" than when Kate, Uncle Joe or the Bradley Girls did in "Petticoat Junction" -despite being in virtually every episode of both series! And he seemed to have much more fun with the Douglasses than he did on the other show! Two more footnotes: Pat Butram admitted that he based his character of Mr. Haney on none other than Colonel Tom Parker of Elvis fame who Buttram had (pre-Elvis) claimed to have seen him operate a carney stand that had dancing chickens ' who'd 'dance' as long as he pushed on a switch under the table that electrified the metal grid beneath the sawdust under their feet! And the 'Green Acres' farm in the opening credits? Long since disappeared under LA 'burb spread. Better take that penthouse view, instead.

I have always wondered why, as the show progressed, that as the kids aged they brought in new younger kids as opposed to giving Carrie something to do.

Carol Burnett and Friends - TV Shows
What's seldom been mentioned in its many retrospectives and cast reunions is the fact that the late Harvey Korman left the show before the final season and they attempted to fill in the void by inviting Dick Van Dyke to be a regular! Despite the fact that he was a legend due to the success of his own show a decade earlier, Van Dyke just wasn't able to mesh with the rest of the performers even with the fanfare and build up Carol tried to give him in welcoming him to the show. They even had him try to be part of ' The Family' recurring skits in which Van Dyke played Eunice's boarder who took up residence after Ed abandoned her. Why a boarder? Possibly because Van Dyke may not have been able to muster an even halfway convincing Southern accent but Roddy McDowell didn't attempt one either but he did play Mama's son (and Eunice's brother) Phillip! In any case, Van Dyke just didn't work out so he and the show parted company quietly but abruptly parted ways and they didn't attempt to have any regulars besides Carol, Vicki Lawrence or Tim Conway for the remainder of the final season and the show just ran out of steam. However; Burnett was shrewd enough to have it end with a rather memorable retrospective Finale which ended with her climbing the stage in her Cleaning Woman costume and singing a poignant rendition of her theme song! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 22, 2009, 7:23 am

I remember a few years ago when the whole Bush Bashing became fashionable, I was unfortunately at a Starbucks, and they had a whole Kiosk of Dixie Chick CD's. Now I dont like Country, but what country act would be on display at a trendy-new wave hippy- style overpriced coffee joint? Oh wait, one that bashes the republican president. I never went back to Starbucks after that, and thankfully I never listened to a Dixie Chicks CD at all. It just made me laugh, one whining liberal institution supporting another in a way that made no sense, and seemed completely out of context.

She has to wash her hands in lemon juice to keep the fish smell at bay because she has probably boned more fish than your average cook at Long John Silvers. First, guns kill people. No one should have a gun unless Rosie thinks she needs one to protect herself. Then she has to come out of the closet, like we care. I really could care less if she like women or not. I don't go flaunting my heterosexuality around. And who had the bright idea to add her to the view. They should have changed the name to "Rosie's View." And then there's the butch haircut.

It seemed to have legs to get into the Dokken helmed Nightmare on Elm Street #3: "Dream Warriors" but after that , it just got silly, and then Freddy clashed with Jason from Friday the 13th- sheesh.

This show was one of those late night syndicated odd ball shows that you always felt was being suppressed as it was so hard to catch an episode of. Sort of in the shadow of other fare of the time like "Xena" or "Hercules" this show was the underground evil rock show of the time period. And some of the episodes were disturbing, including one with Brent Spiner living under an aline occupation that sticks with me to this day. Also the writers had seasonal clip shows that tied together other shows, and several ongoing story lines- one in particular involving a future war with earth and extra terrestrials with Earth on the losing side- that if you caught an episode and then another one in the same storyline, it was really cool.

Great show and probably the greatest spin off ever. The chemistry between Frank Sutton as Sgt Carter and Jim Nabors as Gomer was an instant classic. Throw in Sgt Carter's foil Sgt Hacker, Corporal Boyle, Private/Corporal Slater, Colonel Gray, and others and you had one really funny sitcom. Some may say that Gomer's girlfriend Lou Ann Poovey boned the fish but not so fast. Sgt Carter had Bunny who was basically a female version of himself, so it was natural that Gomer would run into a female version of himself as well which turned out to be Lou Ann. The show lasted five seasons which was about right. If they had continued we might have seen Carter or Gomer marry and move off base which would have destroyed the chemistry between them. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 20, 2009, 7:09 pm

Andy Griffith Show - TV Shows
One of only several iconic sitcoms to ever grace the small screen. The Andy Griffith show made superstars out of Andy Griffith, Don Knotts, and Ron Howard among others. Some say that when Don Knotts left they boned the fish but I disagree. When Don Knotts was on the show his character tended to crowd out the others and dominate the story. When he left the show they were able to focus on the excellent scripts and the other actors were able to step up and fill in the void left behind. I'll admit I got a little tired of seeing Aunt Bee interested in the latest eligible bachelor traveling through or entering a rose in a contest, but overall the cast rose to the challenge. Trying to replace Barney with Warren was a huge mistake which the show realized and dropped the character. Howard fit in nicely and we saw more of Otis, Aunt Bee, Opie, Helen, Andy, Ernest T. Bass and the Darlins, and even Barney and Thelma Lou returning. Overall this show will go down as one of the best...EVER. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on April 20, 2009, 7:03 pm

Thundarr the Barbarian - TV Shows
Another Gem from the 80's for Kids- did it rip off Lucas with Ookla and the Sun Sword- sure it did- but image that- creativity and sci-fi concepts for kids- a destroyed earth ruled by wizards and demons in the future? The statue of liberty coming to life as high tech machines go head to head with sorcery (or was it an ever higher technology?) while Thundarr, Ariel and Ookla tried to exist in the middle and do the "right thing". It wasn't perfect, but compared to today's dreck for kids, and the lack of real saturday Am cartoons, this looks like Shakespeare. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 20, 2009, 1:01 pm

Chico and the Man - TV Shows
Not only was it in extremely bad taste for them to continue after Freddie Prinze, Sr.'s death but what were they thinking of having Ed informally 'adopt' a 12-year-old illegal immigrant who helped him in his garaged but never seemed to go to school? Even in 1978 that was somewhat dubious! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 20, 2009, 11:39 am

Mask, The - Movie Series
I agree, Chubby Rain. Jim Carry doing that 'SMOKIN'! yell with the green face was a classic moment but I think it would have far better had this been done in a single 'Saturday Night Live' sketch instead of trying to work an entire movie (much less two) around it! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 20, 2009, 11:31 am

Starbucks Coffee - Random Topics
I always prefer my coffee without that soggy paper taste so I always seek out local coffeehouses that serve it in MUGS. Also, paper gives me the impression that they can't wait to run me out of their store so they can serve the next person. Yeah, I know a century in a landfill for paper vs. millenia in an archaeology site for ceramic shards but paper doesn't cut it with me! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 20, 2009, 11:29 am

Super Friends - TV Shows
The villains made this show- the LEGION OF DOOM was classic. Who didnt want to sign up for that supergroup of Grod, Luther, Sinestro etc.? The best part was when they put the superfriends on trial for upholding the law- classic cartoon television in every frame. Once they were worked off the show, it boned, but recovered slightly when the Kirby era "Apokolips" villain Darkseid became the primary antagonist in the mid 80's, but by then it was being used more to launch new toys as opposed to the LEGION OF DOOM era. And you can take the sidekick characters and have Green Lantern send them into the vacuum of space- yes Wondertwins, Gleek, Wonderdog, Wendy and Marvin- I mean all of you. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 20, 2009, 9:56 am

Mask, The - Movie Series
This was an off beat title from Dark Horse Comics, that in my humble opinion, should NEVER have been made into any sort of film. It was just a mid 90's bad CGI/ Jim Carrey is funny- "lets laugh at him because he talks loud and makes wierd face" - vehicle to sell tickets. It's just really bad, then the really odd part, they made a "Dancing baby" sequel- Son of the Mask. It begs the question- Why? Boned the Fish on Day One!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 20, 2009, 4:55 am

Karate Kid, The - Movie Series
Correction to something I said earlier: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are NOT in the new Thundercats movie as of this writing, was told this by a friend and I didn't check it out properly. Back to the topic: the series most definitely jumped after II: after fighting an old school ninja death match, High School competitions for points just doesn't up the ante enough to make it worth making a sequel. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 20, 2009, 12:13 am

Saved by the Bell - TV Shows
Oh God, this show is painful to watch...sub-tween aged 'humor' combined with the worst acting I've seen in ages. I want to vomit every time I scan by it. My wife used to watch it in high school along with many of her friends and they loved it! Go figure... -- Submitted By: (syzygy) on April 19, 2009, 6:55 am

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - TV Shows
Riley was definitely annoying, and I do think she damaged the show. However, they were able to fix it, and the last few episodes have been some of the best in the entire series! I hope Fox gives this show a chance with season 3. -- Submitted By: (Timstuff) on April 18, 2009, 8:44 pm

Hell's Kitchen (U.S.) - TV Shows

Disney boned when they started making terrible sequels to movies that were never worthy. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on April 18, 2009, 8:19 pm

Super Bowl - Random Topics
The Super Bowl is an annual chore to watch. It is considered un-American if you don't watch it but it is so boring. There are too many commercial breaks and while the commercials are funny,t hey too suck after halftime. Also, it is usually such a slaughter that you know who will win by halftime, which usually feature terrible acts. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on April 18, 2009, 8:16 pm

Full House - TV Shows
What? Why so many "Day 1" votes? I loved this show growing up, and so did my family! (Yes, JTS did have plenty of "Day 1" votes, but was later overtaken by "Never Jumped.") -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 18, 2009, 7:44 pm

Saturday Morning Cartoons - Random Topics
Ah, it was great being a kid in the 70's and having almost nonstop Looney Toons with some odd Sid and Marty Krofft shows to watch on Saturday mornings! There would also be 'Schoolhouse Rock' and 'In the News' to entertain and inform us between cartoons. When it would get to 'Make a Wish', that was the sign it was time to get out of pyjamas and have some lunch! Nowadays, it's just as well I often work Saturdays! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 18, 2009, 10:29 am

Charlie Brown Specials - TV Shows
They NEVER boned as far as I'm concerned! The Christmas one's my absolute fave (and favorite Christmas cartoon of ALL time). It went a LOT deeper than so many have before/since and it was interesting to me that all these snotty kids would actually feel sorry for Charlie Brown and make his pathetic tree a REAL tree with their decorations but telling, that as soon as the Christmas glow was gone, they'd go right back to being snotty! Also, I liked a great deal the 'What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown' one. Rarely shown since its debut, this was about him and the gang going to France and Linus considering what the soldiers experienced during D-DAY. They actually used REAL footage alongside the cartoon to consider this. Shulz really hit that one of the ballpark with that one being a WWII vet himself! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 18, 2009, 10:24 am

Gilligan's Island - TV Shows
Good question, SVN. Maybe they figure everyone's got the DVDs. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 18, 2009, 10:18 am

History (History Channel) - Random Topics
Sorry guys, but the History Channel has already BTF/JTS when they first became inaccurate with their history documentaries. Look at where they are now! Thank goodness I have never witnessed what the station is like now! (Only through the old JTS site, of course!) If I were to tell every history teacher in America that UFOs are considered real history, they would never forgive me! Peace. -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 18, 2009, 9:20 am

Letterman is my favorite late-night talk show host! Never jumped! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 18, 2009, 9:13 am

Macy's - Random Topics
Macy's "Boned the Fish" - no, no, wait...Macy's "Entered the Neighborhood" in 2006 when became a 100% national chain as opposed to being heavily concentrated in select markets only (Texas, Bay Area, New York, etc.) In the past, Macy's was a lot like a Neiman's in terms of style and atmospherics - when you went in, you could have sworn you were in New York City! Now, with the demise of local chains (such as Foley's and Marshall Field's, both of which had Texas stores), I thought Macy's would bring their fashion to every street corner in America (ala Nordstrom)! Nope, they've pretty much become one rung above JCPenney now! This is a huge blow to long-time Macy's fans (My first Macy's visit was over in that lone Dallas store in early 1995; I loved going there, but don't worry, it's still nice inside) as well as historic department store fans (Chicagoans are still mad at the demise of Field's, you know, and I remember the Dallas store, too!) It's time we start a new phrase: "Enter the Neighborhood", where a business reaches its peak and gets really bad (ala JTS)! It's a play on the phrase "There goes the neighborhood", and it refers to the store's downward spiral after this event! Peace. -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 18, 2009, 9:12 am

Geico Commercials - Random Topics
I first heard of Geico in a mail advertisement, circa 1996. I found a little form that compares the insurance you have now versus that of Geico, plus price comparisons, and how much you can save. I first found their commercials on a local station in early 1998, back when it was "Geico is better than ACME Insurance". From there, the commercials got funny and clever, and suddenly, I became a big Geico fan! Now we have the Gecko, the Caveman, and Kash (with the big "googly" eyes)! 11 years later, I'm still enjoying these ads! I wish Geico made a DVD of every commercial ever made! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 18, 2009, 9:03 am

Antiques Road Show - TV Shows
It's werid how I feel for people who I don't know, I always hope they get a high price while I don't know them. This show hasn't boned yet maybe. -- Submitted By: (kitchenbreak) on April 18, 2009, 8:07 am

Blame whiney parents' groups and their influence on the FCC for killing Saturday Morning Cartoons. Did that really make the country a better place, guys? It seems kids are dumber than ever now. At least the cartoons got kids out of bed. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 17, 2009, 9:35 pm

Kenan & Kel - TV Shows
Never jumped/boned! "Kenan and Kel" is the funniest TV show ever made! I always laughed so hard! My favorite episode is the "Babe Ruth Baseball" one! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 17, 2009, 9:26 pm

Gilligan's Island - TV Shows
"Gilligan" is a terrific classic show! How come no one's showing it in reruns now? -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 17, 2009, 9:25 pm

Charlie Brown Specials - TV Shows
No matter how old you are, the Charlie Brown shows always seem to stick with you! I like the "Great Pumpkin" and "Christmas" ones! I could kind of say that the specials jumped (or boned) because of the network change (CBS to ABC, probably because the former shows "Frosty" and "Rudolph" every season), but my family and I enjoy the shows very much! I also remembered a regular Charlie Brown series on the old Disney Channel (circa mid-90s)! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 17, 2009, 9:23 pm

McDonalds - Random Topics
I miss the McDonaldland gang. Grimace, Early Bird, Happy Meal Guys, and of course Hamburglar. They rarely even use Ronald any more. Now all their ads are trying to be "hip-hop" and "street". The "fist-bumping" one is especially bad. And the sad part is, I don't think their pandering is working either. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 17, 2009, 9:22 pm

Pirates of the Caribbean - Movie Series
I really don't care for this series. I only watched part one just so that I can say "been there, done that!" but that was all I could handle. I did like the two DVD bonus features, though: a clip from "Walt Disney Presents" and the blooper reel ("Is that a plane?") -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 17, 2009, 8:58 pm

Austin Powers - Movie Series
The first movie was genius; anything afterwards was just plain stupid. -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 17, 2009, 8:56 pm

James Bond - Movie Series
No, James Bond never nuked the fridge (or boned the fish). EVER! This is excellent! Even if the movies are nothing to write home about, I still had fun watching them! My favorite Bond film is "A View to a Kill"! An exploding blimp (which was quite funny), a villain with a weird name (also funny), and Duran Duran - all excellent! The latest, "Quantum of Solace" had a quick Bond girl scene, but it's the best and funniest! (Hint: Bond and his lady check into a hotel.) -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 17, 2009, 8:55 pm

I was born in 1987. Yes, I am always aware that MTV was once a "music" station, and I remember exactly when they started playing "nonsense"!
