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.

House - TV Shows
@PT: There's a general consensus among mental health professionals that House has Asperger's syndrome or a similar diagnosis on the autism spectrum. One typical thought-process quirk among Aspies and others on the spectrum is the need to categorize everything, even if it's according to a category that seems off-the-wall or irrelevant to other folks. So it's likely that same quirk plays into House's thought process for arriving at medical diagnoses. Because of how his brain processes information, for him the starting point has to be categorizing his patients as either having or not having sarcoidosis. Hence, House always asks if sarcoidosis has been ruled out. Once that question has been answered, he's good to go. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 16, 2012, 12:14 am

Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In - TV Shows
I've seen reruns in syndication and was disappointed, and that had nothing to do with me believing any hype. I saw many of these when they were first run. I was pre-schoo and grade-school age at the time and thought it was the most hilarious thing on TV then. Being only 7 when it was cancelled, I was heartbroken, and couldn't for the life of me understand why for years after its cancellation it was never re-run anywhere. Then in the early to middle 1980, Channel 9 in NY (then WOR, now WWOR) started showing reruns. I was lost. I barely cracked a smile. All those "Watergate" jokes were no longer funny, mainly because Watergate was a very drawn out scandal that brought down two Presidents (including Ford who failed to win the election of 1976 in part because he pardoned Nixon). By the mid-1980s people had grown weary of kicking Nixon who had been out of public life for a decade. Also, many of their popular culture references were passing references to people you wouldn't have heard of or events that made news at the time but meant little in passing as of the rerun date. It never boned, because you can't predict how your reruns are going to be received by a future audience, but as another person pointed out, those reruns are good for little more than nostalgia, and you'll have to google much of that to know what they mean lol. Believe me, I hate writing this. One of my very first favorite shows in life doesn't appeal to me in the least anymore, and that SUCKS! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:51 pm

Ropers, The - TV Shows
What I don't get is....WHY does Antenna TV continue to show this and that other LAME Three's Company spin-off "Three's A Crowd"? Time was it was very rare for a show to get a 2nd life in ruruns without at least being renewed for a 2nd season, and that's ORIGINAL shows. Spin-offs that last less than one season deserve syndicated re-runs even less, because they had some semblance of a core audience going in yet STILL failed. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:34 pm

Never boned, but I think his Firebird had to be a "same character / different actor" deal. That car would literally be exploded by a bomb one week, and he would be back driving it the next!

Rock Hudson - TV Shows
Staying in the closet was a very understandable move at the time he did it. I don't think he "boned" because of that. He didn't get to be gay in 2012.....that's what people need to understand. A romantic lead like him "coming out" in those days would have been a death knell for his career. Would he have gotten the Dynasty gig? Hell, it wrecked Ellen's sitcom, and everyone including the kitchen sink had a "you go gay girl" attitude going into that. Bottom line, even today, once you "come out" people more closely scrutinize the characters you play, and the moment you're asked to play a "straight" you're going to be under a microsope from people looking for wooden or contrived acting in that situation. Looking back on it, how awkward is it to see Robert Reed nuzzling Florence Henderson? How painful is it to watch Dick Sargent kissing Elizabeth Montgomery? Rock Hudson was actually a way better actor along those lines, but he was also helped by the ambiguity about his personal life (until he got sick). He was an exception. By and large, gays aren't very good at playing straights. That's why Jim Parsons' "coming out" was a mere formality for anyone paying attention. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:17 pm

@DolFan316, maybe so, some things aren't good from the start, but the point of this website isn't to go search up everything you don't like and announce to the world that you don't like it.

Rhoda - TV Shows
A classic example of a show that couldn't figure out what direction it wanted to go in, so we have: Season 1 - Rhoda single, then dating, then married Season 2 - Rhoda separated but working on it Season 3 - Rhoda divorced....mind you no specific reason is ever given why she and Joe are incompatible. Season 4 - Rhoda changes jobs, begins dating a doctor seriously, makes one wonder what the point was in divorcing her in the first place. I believe this season was also incomplete as it was cancelled mid-way. Bottom line, when you conceive of a show, it's generally a good idea to have a clue what you want to do with it, although in a way this approach was clever in a "car wreck you can't take your eyes off" kind of way. After all, they did manage to dupe viewers who wondered if Rhoda and Joe were ever going to work things out, into watching for 3 plus seasons. Hell, they even mocked this in the final MTM episode with the purportedly future (and very old) Mary saying she just got a letter from Rhoda who's still waiting for Joe to come back. Show was pretty much a con job, and it was the viewers being conned. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 4:01 pm

Remote Control - TV Shows
If you liked this show, fine, but I voted sucked from the start because of what this show represented to me. It was the beginning of MTV putting music videos on the back burner in favor of "programming". It wasn't the beginning of the end for MTV playing good tunes. Them caving on showing Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" was and sent them hurtling toward Top-40 land. However, this was worse. It was MTV acknowledging that the end was inevitable. I did not tune into MTV to watch quiz shows. I watched it because I liked the original concept of showing rock videos and sometimes alternative vids for music you generally didn't hear on mainsteam radio. Michael soon fixed that, and shows like "Remote Control" made it clear this network was going to be all about bells, whistles and pop, and less about music going forward. It sure has turned out that way. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 3:42 pm

Real World, The - TV Shows
I voted "Staged" but the truth is it sucked from the start, because it was staged from the start. The best thing about this show was the episode of "Laroquette" it spawned that spoofed it with Chill Mitchell being in something called "The Reality House", which was funny because as ridiculous as they made it on Laroquette, it was amazingly true to what it was satirizing, namely highly mutable post-teeny boppers thrown together without a care or a clue in the world. Both a guy and girl in the "reality house" go from having all kinds of problems with Chill's antics, to thinking they're in love with Chill the next time they speak on camera. Yes, it was assinine, but yes, that was "The Real World".....and that's why this "Laroquette" ep was funny. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 3:34 pm

Real Housewifes of Orange County. - TV Shows
Any show with the word "Housewives" (plural) in it is an automatic Day 1 boning.

My Two Dads - TV Shows
Even if this show was good from beginning to end, which it wasn't as it boned on day 1, it still would have boned by now as the entire meaning of "My Two Dads" has changed since the 1980s. In fact, even IN the 1980s this title brought about snickers and "are they for real?" type comments. Can't say I like the premise of not knowing who the real dad is because both were using mom as a "test tube" in the 1960s either. Why not just call it "My Dead Mother The Petrie Dish"? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 11:34 am

Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
How can anyone view one of those awful John Cleese-less episodes and say this never boned? From what I recall, the only one that was semi-funny was the one about Eric Idle buying the ant named Marcus, and apparently John Cleese did some of the writing in that one. "Hamlet", "Mr. Neutron" and "The Golden Age of Ballooning" were as unfunny and overdone as it gets. Big fan of seasons 1-3, but no John in season 4 = few laughs. They also took out Michael Palin's old man who always introduced the show with "it's..." Blasphemy! How could they do that to a show staple! It's like they wanted it to be thought of as a different show without Cleese.....and it was....an outright bummer. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 15, 2012, 10:52 am

Love Sidney - TV Shows
How much time do you have? Sidney's glossed-over homosexuality was the worst. If you're going to do THIS show, be honest about the lead character as you were in the movie it was spun off from. Then there's that kid. Everything about her right on down to the actress' name was annoying. Couldn't act. Couldn't sing. What kind of a name is "Kaleena Kiff"? Maybe her middle name was Kristina, so her initials can be K.K.K.? The brilliant parents of child actresses.....again! Getting back to her singing, in the opening theme, at one point she sings "friends forever" so shrill that I though I was listening to Edith Bunker at the wrong speed. Bad....BAD stuff. The original "Sidney Shorr" movie was well done, but this was a terrible follow up to it. Swoosie Kurtz held her own for what that's worth considering the material was so bad. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 11:29 am

Lou Grant - TV Shows
I think the point was to show an "other side" to the Lou Grant character. Having lost his gig at WJM and the independent network news show he produced there he moved on to a more serious job at a newspaper and became a more serious guy. I also don't think he drank as much on this show as he did on MTM, when he was frequently drowning his sorrows (his divorce, bad ratings, etc.), and even ends up in bed with Sue Ann as a result once. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 11:22 am

Lone Ranger, The - TV Shows
It boned when "Lone" impersonated an Italian immigrant named "Luigi", and used this accent that was straight out of Joe Dolce's "shappappa-you-face". He was also constantly referring to himself in the 3rd person...."a-yessa....Luigi she fix-a for you." It was so over the top it was actually funny, but I really doubt they were trying to be. This rivaled Fred Flintstone's alter-ego "Goggles Pizano", which WAS supposed to be funny. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 11:13 am

Little House on the Prairie - TV Shows
I was constantly amazed how in the early episodes of this, Laura seemed to think any situation could be solved by her running off into the distance. Her brother (Charles Jr., not Albert the invented one) dies, she runs off into the distance. She looses out to Nelly on something, just run over yonder there. Was that what they did in the 19th century when they were depressed instead of snacking because nobody could afford snacks? Also, while this was supposed to be based on a true story, Mary Ingalls never married. There was no "Adam Kendall" in her life. She basically went blind early in life and ended up a spinster. Nice way to spin a sad story, showing her leading a productive life being married and employed. Also, "Albert" never existed either, so don't feel bad that he gets leukemia and dies in one episode because that's as contrived (I like that word too) as he is. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 14, 2012, 11:06 am

FoxTrot - Random Topics
One of my favorite comic strips back in its heyday. I bought the Camp Foxtrot collection just on a whim one day, and had been reduced to fits of tears from laughter at least 3 different times by the time I was done reading it. For a longtime, it was one of the best and most underrated comics in the funny pages. Then several years ago, Bill Amend got on a big World of Warcraft kick and incorporated it into the strip. Before long, almost all of the strips either related around WoW or required advanced knowledge of Physics in order for it to be funny. It wasn't as relate-able or spontaneous as it had been before. It's since gone to the Sunday-only format but it's still a shell of its former self. Still, I at least have the older strip collections to keep me entertained.

I hated when Olivia joined the show. Instead of focusing on the other characters, there were very long segments focusing on Olivia that were not necessary for the main plots of episodes. The episode where Vanessa goes out of town to see a concert only to get stranded is one such episode, IIRC; there's a long segment where Cliff and Olivia are doing a skit before the main action of the episode starts.

In the Heat of the Night (TV series) - TV Shows
It boned for good when Howard Rollins left, although I agree his guest appearances as an attorney brought nothing to the stories. However, it started to bone when Althea gets raped. Later after both characters were written out, Virgil in one of those cheesy guest appearances reveals they split up because Althea blames him for the rape and that HS kid who shot himself in the cemetary, etc.....to which I said "good effin riddance". I found Althea to be the most annoying, preachy, self-righteous character on this show. When they split it's actually believable because it seemed inevitable given her self-righteousness and apparent distaste for how Virgil went about his job. Just a really annoying woman who looked like she was suffering from "Ally McBeal syndrome".

I don't recall ever hearing about the Jewish people involved in the production or acting in this show ever throwing any paychecks back in anyone's face over content issues. Seems a little "revisionist" to be offended by it now. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 5:01 pm

Harvey Birdman, Attorney At Law - TV Shows
Watched this once and thought it was overly contrived garbage using "classic" cartoon characters solely for the sake of injecting them into something "new". I see it hasn't warranted any other comments or even votes even though it's fairly recent. That tells me people stayed the hell away, and from what I saw that was a good move. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 4:42 pm

Happy Days - TV Shows
If Rock Around The Clock isn't the opening theme of the ep you're watching, don't bother. Maybe that's harsh. Some season 2 eps were OK, but once the audience started cheering for characters (mostly Fonz) when they first appear on camera, it became a giant stroke-off fest. I still LOL at "Potsie and His Raiders" from the stolen bike season 1 ep. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 4:35 pm

H.R. Pufnstuf - TV Shows
Never boned, but does anyone else think the opening theme of this show rambles on and on about the backstory for way too long? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 4:28 pm

Growing Pains - TV Shows
It boned when Bon-er left to join the service. He NEVER returned even as a guest. He got Chuck Cunningham'd after being Mike's best sidekick / flunkie, and Mike wasn't as funny without Boner to drag down with him. Say what you want about the actor being typecast, or committing suicide over not being able to shake this character, but this show was never as good after he left. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 4:24 pm

Grady - TV Shows
I didn't vote on this one because I really only saw the pilot (actually an S&S episode), but I think they gave Grady his own series as payback for his "holding the fort" when Redd Foxx was in a contract dispute with WNBC. Some of the "Grady" episodes of S&S, like Wild Parsley, Cousin Emma and the Ron Glass (character just getting out of prison) episodes of S&S were pretty good, so maybe that's why they thought he could star in his own series. Problem was the premise. Nobody wanted to see Grady as a curmudgeonly grandfather. He worked better as one of FS' cronies watching monster movies and the fights. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 4:11 pm

Good Morning America - TV Shows
This show premiered with David Hartman as host in the mid-1970s after his last acting gig "Lucas Tanner" didn't pan out. Seemed to me this was Hartman's show. Never paid it much attention after he left. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 4:02 pm

Good Day LA - TV Shows
Jillian Barberie is just not a likeable TV personality no matter how hard Fox tries to push her on the masses. 'nough said. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 3:58 pm

Gong Show, The - TV Shows
It boned when they tried to bring it back in the late 1980s without Chuck. Instead they had some guy named Don Bleu hosting it. Yeah, I know, WHO?! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 3:56 pm

Golden Girls, The - TV Shows
It never jumped, but I kind of agree with fletch, although I found it more nauseating with Blanche. Granted, Rue McClanahan was a cute MILF in her "Maude" days, but I found her character creepy on this. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 3:50 pm

Glee - TV Shows
Every time I hear this show's title, I'm reminded of the Jerky Boys' bit "Kessel Wants To Sing". Q: So you want to join a glee club? Kessel: Right! 'cause I'm filled with glee! I just can't take this show seriously with that in my head everytime there's an advertisement for it. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 3:30 pm

Gilligan's Island - TV Shows
I don't know if this was intentional or not, but how is it the Soviet Union obviously knows the castaways are shipwrecked on this island but the US doesn't have a clue? And yes, I do mean the entire "Soviet Union", not just select hapless citizens who stumbled upon them by accident like Harold Heckuba, The Mosquitos, or other Americans who find them there. That Russian body double of Gilligan's didn't show up by accident. He KNEW who he was impersonating before he ever disembarked. Then there was the Russian who tried to use them to rob Fort Knox. How'd he know they were there to be his patsies? Then there was the "ghost" Russian played by Richard Kiel ("Jaws" from the Bond movies). He knew they were there too, else who was he trying to scare off the island / blow up? And why did the Russians want the castaways dead? Very weird plots in those "Russian" episodes that makes you wonder if they weren't trying to make them look smarter than their "clueless" American counterparts. Apparently if you were American, you were a dolt unless you were Professor Roy Hinkley lol. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 3:21 pm

Get Smart - TV Shows
How many different chaos agents did Len Lesser (Seinfeld's Uncle Leo) play on this show? His character would get knocked off one week, then he'd be back playing some other chaos guy the next week. He was like Jim Rockford's Firebird. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 11:47 am

Get a Life - TV Shows
I agree that season 2 was a fishbone. "Cousin Donald" and "Wallet Boy" were the best eps from season 1 though. Donald was played (and nailed) by the great Jackie Earle Haley of "Bad News Bears" and "Breaking Away" fame. He was later nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for "Little Children". At one point he rubbed Chris' face in it about having an "eight....followed by TWO ZEROES" in his bank account. Then the gig was finally up when Chris found out the bank wanted to repo Donald's '84 Chevette, which Chris was in the process of trashing for "revenge". Great stuff! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 11:44 am

Ally McBeal - TV Shows
@Pelirojo, yes I do know someone who once admitted having liked this, but I never understood where she was coming from. All the annoying stuff everyone is writing about she thought was cool. I never watched this show myself, but I voted that it boned on Day 1, because I found the coming attractions to it infuriatingly stupid...especially when Fox would show them during an NFL telecast. What "football guy" is gonna watch "Shallow" McBeal who's wife doesn't make him? Advertising a show to a non-target audience is a fishbone in and of itself. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 12, 2012, 11:33 am

ZIMA - Random Topics
Gotta disagree with you on this one. ZIMA quickly became labeled as strictly a girly drink that no man would ever dare be caught dead with. Only being outed as a Beiber fan would be less manly. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 12, 2012, 9:03 am

Hot l Baltimore - TV Shows
Way ahead of its time. Very funny. Unfortunately, it was too controversial for the average audience at that point in time. It was the first network television show to have a warning at its opening, cautioning viewers about mature themes. It only lasted for 13 shows - evidently, the average TV viewer is a moron. -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 12, 2012, 8:08 am

ZIMA- never boned. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on June 12, 2012, 7:56 am

One of the funniest moments in TV history: "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly." - Mr. Carlson (after Les' hysterical "Hindenburg Disaster" style news coverage). -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 12, 2012, 4:52 am

A very well done and philosophical show. Absolutely superb. -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 12, 2012, 4:18 am

Kids in the Hall, The - TV Shows
I agree with the comment regarding the Chicken Lady looking for her old house. That was really funny on a couple of levels, with an absolutely laugh-out-loud ending. -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 12, 2012, 3:57 am

Alfred Hitchcock Presents - TV Shows
They just don't make them like this anymore! One of the great TV memories from my childhood. -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 12, 2012, 3:53 am

Dark Shadows - TV Shows
I used to rush home from elementary school to see this. I loved horror stories back then (still do)and this was one cool soap opera! -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 12, 2012, 3:50 am

Storage Wars - TV Shows
These guys have interesting characters, so the show is a lot more than just buying storage lockers and hoping to find something valuable. There are some truly humorous moments and some very unusual items to keep your attention. All-in-all, a mild, but entertaining diversion. -- Submitted By: (hbrennan) on June 12, 2012, 3:29 am

American Psycho - Movie Series
Do you like Huey Lewis and the News? Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor. Huey released this, Fore!, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself. -- Submitted By: (BBulaga75) on June 11, 2012, 7:28 pm

Family Ties - TV Shows
I thought Alex' best GF on this show was the character played by real life wife Tracey Pollan. When she left and was replaced by Courtney Cox, the show got very contrived. Didn't like the subsequent "love triangle" or the other "hippie-ish" girl involved in that, which was even more contrived. Can anyone seriously see Alex P. Keaton being "torn" over that one? Between the two of them Courtney was a no brainer. The hippie would have driven Alex insane! But I just didn't like Courtney's character on this show. I didn't find it believable. Seemed like a real stretch for her. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 11, 2012, 4:31 pm

Everybody Hates Chris - TV Shows
I love the recurring characters played by 70s-era Norman Lear and other sitcom alumni like Ernest Thomas (Roger Thomas from What's Happening!), Antonio Fargas (Sonny Cochrane from Sanford & Son), Jimmy Walker (JJ Evans from Good Times) and Todd Bridges (Willis Jackson from Diff'rent Strokes). They all do their roles very well, which tells me they ain't no has-beens. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 11, 2012, 4:07 pm

Eight Is Enough - TV Shows
I don't think it ever boned. It did the best it could considering an original cast member (Diana Hyland, their real mom) died after like episode 2. Maybe not very plausible for Tom Sr. to get remarried so quick. BTW, the song "David" sings became the eventual theme music for the show. The original theme was some instrumental standard, which got replaced by "David's song", although I don't think he was the singer when it was used as the theme later on, only in the episode that inspired it lol. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 11, 2012, 3:52 pm

Dynasty - TV Shows
Did someone here actually call the 80s a decade that produced good music? What would be some examples of that? "I Eat Cannibals"? "Don't Put Another Dime In The Jukebox"? "Jesse's Girl"? "Who Can It Be Now"? Anything by Billy Ocean? Someone help me here! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 11, 2012, 3:47 pm

Dragnet - TV Shows
How can anybody say this show boned? You couldn't have seen "LSD Story" to say that. And what about the episode about the misfit kid who crashes the party and holds everyone hostage with his hand on the pin of a hand grenade? "It's my party now, and you're all invited to stay! YA HEAR ME?!?!" ROFLMAO...that one was priceless! Never bones. Ya just gotta be patient with it, and there was humor but it was deadpan humor. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 11, 2012, 3:43 pm

Diff'rent Strokes - TV Shows
Gordon Jump as a child molester is the answer to the question "What's the picture in your mind you LEAST need?" I wonder who it was who first decided that situation COMEDIES should tackle issues like pedophelia (menstruation is another favorite topic of mine to see in sitcoms)? And at least let some B ACTOR have that gig. Why drag Mr. Carlson through the mud?!?! -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 11, 2012, 3:33 pm

Kung Fu - TV Shows
I agree. It makes me angry to think that we could have had Kung Fu starring Bruce Lee (aka MR. KUNG-FU!!) but didn't due to Hollywood racism. Perhaps Bruce wouldn't have died had this show taken off and he didn't have to move to Hong Kong to get roles. So instead you get a white guy spewing fortune cookie platitudes while kicking in psychedelic slow-mo. If Hollywood has to reboot something, it should be this show. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 11, 2012, 2:50 pm

Big Bang Theory - TV Shows
I like the show overall, but I find it really irritating anytime they involve the character of Wolowitz' unseen but too often heard (loudly!) mom. She's just too ridiculously over the top to be real, and if someone is like her IRL it's just not funny. She's the kind of person I knocked over innocent bystanders yelling "gang way!" to avoid in my younger days. Meanwhile, Wolowitz brings chicks back to THAT HOUSE of all places for sex, more than once as if he can't seem to grasp what a bad idea that is (yet he's brilliant). Spring for a motel room you cheap fk! How could you NOT with a mom like that at home? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 11, 2012, 11:38 am

Alien Movies - Movie Series
I regret to say that Prometheus was disappointing. Didn't tie into Alien well at all and didn't really make any sense. It was visually stunning, but the story often reminded me of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Star Trek V. The writer of LOST wrote it, and it shows. Stuff just happens and it is never explained. It ends on a cliffhanger for a sequel that may or may not happen. Meh. I'd recommend waiting to rent it unless you really need to see it in 3D. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 10, 2012, 5:50 pm

Game Of Thrones - TV Shows
I've heard some people compare it to Lord of the Rings, but I couldn't disagree more. This is the complete opposite of Lord of the Rings. I feel that this show is more akin to "I, Claudius". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 10, 2012, 5:36 pm
