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.

Rush Limbaugh - Celebrities
I think going on that show just proves that Limbaugh is nothing more than an oxycotin addicted moron who just acts as conservative. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on October 4, 2010, 2:36 pm

Red Dwarf - TV Shows
Seasons 1-5 are classics. Season 6 was OK as well, but would've been better if they were still on Red Dwarf. Luckily I didn't even watch seasons 7 and 8 because I was warned they were really awful. That formula of those 4 guys and the computer stuck in space could have been funny for years, but as soon as they changed that the show fell apart. Really was a good show in its time though. -- Submitted By: (cfc2011) on October 4, 2010, 2:26 pm

Office, The - TV Shows
I used to be addicted to this show but I stopped caring abut it in the last year or so. If it really is ending soon then I'll probably watch it until the end, but it's definitely past it's best. I guess it's difficult to keep a show like this going for so many seasons and still be funny. -- Submitted By: (cfc2011) on October 4, 2010, 2:21 pm

American Dad! - TV Shows
Seth's best show at the moment. It's actually got better as Family Guy got worse. I rather spend my money on AD DVDs than FG anyday. Roger is the best character and he really makes the show. I can see why some might find him annoying but I think he's funny as hell. I hope that koala isn't around much longer though because he really isn't funny. Hopefully this show will carry on getting better and not go the way of FG. -- Submitted By: (cfc2011) on October 4, 2010, 2:17 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
This show has been in decline for years, but that Kesha opening - oh god what were they thinking?!? This was by far my favorite show growing up. But look at the gulf in quality between the old and new episodes - it's not even the same show it was 10-15 years ago. It could have gone down in history as an absolute classic, but they got greedy and ruined its reputation. Shame. -- Submitted By: (cfc2011) on October 4, 2010, 2:10 pm

I knew this show was gonna suck as soon as I heard about it. But I gave Seth the benefit of the doubt and tried to watch the first episode. It was so bad I didn't even finish it. Fail.

Family Guy - TV Shows
I barely even laugh at the new Family Guy episodes anymore. Conway Twitty was the moment it started going downhill for me. It was my favorite show for a while but I stopped buying the DVDs after season 6. I find American Dad funnier than this nowadays, and usually look forward to new AD than FG episodes. I still watch FG though even if it's past its best, because occasionally there's a good episode. But really this show's just a shadow of its former self. Still hasn't reached the depths of The Simpsons yet though IMO. -- Submitted By: (cfc2011) on October 4, 2010, 2:01 pm

American Idol - TV Shows
Let me preface this by saying that I became a fan of "American Idol" around the time of Season Six, so all the stuff about Kelly, Justin, Clay, Ruben, Carrie and all them I only heard about on the news. That said, there were some moments in the seasons I watched where it came closer and closer to BTFing. The whole Sanjaya thing was a bit ridiculous, but, seriously, is he any worse of a singer than a lot of "artists" that were popular with kids at the time? I didn't like the fact that Adam Lambert wasn't the winner; I liked his style of music much better than anyone on there, especially Kris Allen. I still have Adam's covers of "Black or White" and "Mad World" on my iPod to this day. I have nothing against Ellen DeGeneres, but I don't think she should be judging a singing competition. It seems like she was just added for ratings. The biggest problem, though, was the results of this past season. Although Lee DeWyze, Crystal "Mama Sox" Bowersox and Casey James were talented, they were just not in the same league as some of the others, especially Siobhan Magnus. Apparently, I'm not alone in my love for Siobhan; this article says that, after Miss Magnus' elimination, "Idol" dropped to its lowest ratings since the FIRST SEASON: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/05/05/american-idol-gets-lowest_n_564675.html I'm not sure who ran Siobhan's fan page on Facebook, but many fans (including me) blame him/her for Magnus' exit, because he/she put Aaron Kelly's number INSTEAD of Siobhan's! After that, and the almost complete overhaul of the judges, I don't know if I can bring myself to watch "Idol" this coming season. As good as it (allegedly) was in the beginning, I think it's on its last leg. BTW: This is my first post on this site. Please let me know if the style of my post was inappropriate. -- Submitted By: (RebelOfSociety) on October 3, 2010, 7:56 pm

1990's - Random Topics
That does it MCS, you have forced me to go on a political rant!!! j/k :-) IMO the idea of divorce became popular when after the "sexual revolution" men and women alike started asking themselves why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free, if ya know what I mean. It's casual sex that destroyed marriage as our grandparents knew it. These days it really is just better to live together without getting married, for a variety of reasons. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on October 3, 2010, 4:14 pm

I forgot to mention, the divorce rate did seem to start skyrocketing in the 80s.

1990's - Random Topics
I say that the 90s ended on September 11th because that was when we really were into the era of George W. Bush's presidency. That single event was the very last tie that severed his administration from the Clinton administration and it was what defined the Bush administration. It seemed in general society took a very different focus than what it had before. Terrorism was even more at the forefront than what it was before and of course politically Bush's administration was much more conservative than Clinton's. I will agree that pop culture signs of the 00s were visible in 98-99; The Simpsons was tanking, boy bands were taking over, and reality TV was starting to appear (look at the FOX network). I think every decade does have a bit of a transition but I think September 11th abruptly changed the 90s into the 00s. You also cannot discount the burst of the dot com bubble in 2001. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on October 3, 2010, 11:18 am

1990's - Random Topics
I guess reality really is in the eye of the beholder. I don't remember divorce rates being all that bad until the past 10-20 years. But, like everything, perhaps some areas have higher rates then others. As well, it could be that I'm now simply more aware of it. I graduated HS in 1997 (though from a five year system). One could classify my generation as being the next generation after yours. Although, to be honest, I think I relate more to Gen X then to Gen Y. Though in some ways, I feel caught right in the middle. Sort of, feeling not cool enough for Gen X but not haven grown up surrounded with tech to the extreme people perceive with Gen Y. The mid-late 90s were a lot different from the early 90s. The one thing I associate with the early 90s was the whole PC movement. I think the Internet growing more popular in the mid-late 90s was what really got the tech obsessed ball rolling and ushered in a sort of second 90s era. People started getting more knowledgeable but perhaps some loss of innocence accompanied that knowledge. The Internet growing in popularity seemed to be around where technology took off and perhaps went too far. But, I accept that this is matter of opinion. For all I know, 20 years from now we could be discussing that time as the more innocent days. Perhaps it indeed is a case of one's perception of a decade mattering more. Maybe there is no 'real' definition of a decade as much as there is a definition of what one experienced during that decade. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on September 30, 2010, 6:39 pm

DolFan, I considered her to be in the same beauty league as Miss Grace Kelly only BEFORE I heard her open her sewer mouth- and it's been years since she's even superficially resembled the latter. Still, I agree that it's sad that it's not as much as a given for a surface beauty to be inwardly classy as it was in the past. I'll even go further and mention the stunning Carole Lombard who died after her plane crashed selling WWII war bonds but is sadly less remembered than her contemporary Jean Harlow. True, in her private life and offscreen Miss Lombard had a vocabulary that would have made even a contemporary stereotypical longshoreman blush. However; Miss Lombard had the class and intelligence to consider what was suitable vocabulary and subject matter for the occasion so that she would have been a welcome guest in any scout meeting or church committee- not just for her outward beauty! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 30, 2010, 11:54 am

1990's - Random Topics
MCS, I disagree about when the 90s officially ended. Just like "the sixties" was really just '65-'69, the 90s were really just from '91 to '97. In '97 and '98 things started going downhill and then bottomed out in '99 when all of pop culture boned the fish. And who put divorce as a reason? The frequent divorce phenomenon actually started in the 80s. Half the kids I went to school with were from broken homes and I graduated high school in '91. I even remember the school counselor asking me if my parents were still together for graduation arrangements, that's how common divorce was even back then. And also, kids of the 90s never really got the chance to imitate the 60s because the baby boomers saw that my generation was the first one to really question authority since those days and because THEY were now in authority they did their best to stamp us out, including attaching the derisive and dismissive "Gen X" label to us--and then turning around and spoiling the generation right after us rotten!!! -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on September 29, 2010, 8:07 pm

Before the series even aired the buzz was that FOX already hated the show and wanted it dead. It was for that reason that I didn't watch it when it first aired; I wasn't going to invest in a show I knew was going to be canceled. FOX hated the pilot/first episode and refused to air it. I think they aired the remaining eps out of order, too. You can pull up the archived JTS and see people's reaction to what happened. Without the pilot to explain things, people were confused and people were complaining of things like "Too many characters, who are all these people." I finally watched it all when it came out on DVD. Watching it that way in the correct order, everything made perfect sense. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 28, 2010, 3:59 pm

Yet another entry in television's endless love affair with the cops. This time it's the U.S. Marshal service, the baddies are bad-as-can-be, and there's the usual rainbow coalition of crime fighters clutching their pistols in both hands in approved TV-cop fashion. But the pearl in this oyster is Kelli Giddish, who's 30 but looks and acts a little older here, and stars as U.S. Marshall Annie Frost. She hasn't had to show a lot of range so far, but she's been perfect in what they've given her -- she disappears into her role. If, like me, you've got a thing for dishwater blondes who look and sound like every truck-stop waitress in the Southwest before the Interstates came along, you'll want to keep an eye on Annie Frost... -- Submitted By: (JohnWest) on September 28, 2010, 10:31 am

In terms of sanity, Doonesbury far outdoes Fillmore (which seems to be nothing more than a comic to scare righties into thinking we are going to hell or some crap), so it has that going for it. That being said, I do not care much for the comic either, but at least it doesn't freak lefties out into thinking righties are taking this country straight to hell (short of the Bush bashing it did when he was in office). -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on September 27, 2010, 10:15 pm

Firefly - TV Shows
I just finished watching this masterpiece of a show and the movie that tried to tie things up- I'm left wondering how did I miss this show when it came out, and how has it not been brought back in some form to some channel? It makes the monster of the week/Flash Gordon rape on the "SYFY" Network seem even more horrific in retrospect. This show has never boned, and will never bone- if you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and check it out. Pass the slaw to FOX for cancelling it and giving us Family guy and it's spinoffs instead- can't they clear a timeslot for great entertainment? Rant over! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on September 27, 2010, 8:08 pm

Doonesbury - Random Topics
I remember when I was a little kid I would read the comics section. But I never found Doonesbury funny. "Maybe when you're older you will," my mother said. 25 years later and I'm still not laughing. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 27, 2010, 11:54 am

I never watch this show, but Stephen Colbert the man boned when he decided he was too good to do voices on The Venture Bros. anymore now that he had his own show. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 27, 2010, 11:22 am

They messed with (messed up?) the site again. Web developers love fixing what isn't broken and reinventing the wheel, don't they? -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 26, 2010, 8:22 pm

Star Wars - Movie Series
I was just thinking about how all the actors in The Phantom Menace seem to have been "demoted" in Hollywood after that thing came out. Liam, Ewan, and Sam Jackson were hot A-Listers at that time due to Schindler's List, Trainspotting, and Pulp Fiction. Now, I'd say they're B-listers. Natalie Portman was supposed to be the Next Big Thing, but that never quite happened. The careers of Jake Lloyd and Ahmed Best were (justifiably) killed by it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 26, 2010, 6:18 pm

S#*! My Dad Says - TV Shows
Kind of stupid to name your television show something that can't be said on television. "Stuff My Dad Says", or even "My Dad Shat Says" would have been better. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 26, 2010, 6:11 pm

I believe they call it the Scottish Site as a reference to referring to Macbeth as the Scottish Play because it's considered bad luck to refer to said play by name. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on September 25, 2010, 9:51 pm

Wayne Brady is terrible as a host. There is absolutely no chemistry between himself and the audience. Whoever picked this guy should be fired. -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on September 25, 2010, 8:59 pm

Frasier - TV Shows
The first few seasons were excellent. But as I understand, most of the original writers left the show. The quality after that was dismal. The plots were ridiculous in some cases. I cringed when Bulldog and Noel were in any show. Remember that terrible Halloween show when Noel was hanging from the door? -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on September 25, 2010, 8:56 pm

Remember watching this as a kid. Thought it was stupid then also. Outrageous plots, no one ever hit by a bullet and so on. Typical American TV show. Dumbed down for the lowest common denominator. -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on September 25, 2010, 8:46 pm

Kung Fu - TV Shows
Loved this show as a kid, and still do. At the time I was angry that Bruce Lee was passed over for a role that originated with him, not to mention his martial arts skills were light-years ahead of Carradine's. At the time. As an adult, while stationed at Clark AB in the Philippines I came to appreciate the acting abilities of the late David Carradine (thank God for reruns). Truthfully Carradine was as far above Bruce Lee as an actor as Lee was above Carradine as a martial artist. While he would outshine Carradine in the fight scenes, which were rather infrequent, Carradine would out-act him everywhere else. Bottom Line: I'm grateful that David Carradine got the part, we got a chance to see a terrific actor in yet another terrific role. RIP David!!! -- Submitted By: (Chuck) on September 25, 2010, 11:49 am

JumptheShark.com - Websites
I don't know what "Scottish Site" means, but I do remember Jumptheshark back in the day. I wasn't a frequent visitor, but I could always count on being entertained by the user comments. I remember crying with laughter while reading 48 pages worth of commentary on "Little House on the Prairie." Why on earth did TV Guide buy it only to kill it? It's not as if they were competing products. I wish I had printed out more content before all that good stuff was destroyed. Shame on all parties involved. It was the users who made JTS such a great site in the first place! -- Submitted By: (mudpuppy) on September 25, 2010, 10:55 am

JumptheShark.com - Websites
This is a prime example of what happens when a great idea gets into the hands of people who think they know better how to improve on said greatness. Too bad! I really liked the old site with it's laid-back style, and left many a comment there over the years. It's a crying shame that the Borg of entertainment (TV Guide) bought the rights to the site, reconstructing (and resurrecting) the new one in it's own image. The result: a VASTLY inferior product in spite of the best of intentions. May the old site rest in peace! -- Submitted By: (Chuck) on September 25, 2010, 12:08 am

30 Rock - TV Shows
Unfunny show, and why in god's name Fey has become such a media darling escapes me. She made for one of the all-time worst periods for SNL ever (and considering how many bad periods SNL has gone through, that's quite an achievement), and her 'writing' here is no funnier than it was then. Mostly heavily watered-down redo's of Larry David material, skewed towards some pseudo-hipster demographic who think they're paragons of high-IQ because they 'get' a lot of lame jokes and references to pop culture tropes that were already stale when they'd originally been used back in the eighties. Baldwin's the *only* worthwhile thing about this heap, and even he's getting into a tired and rather unfunny rut these days. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 24, 2010, 5:24 pm
