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.

The problem is, if they had REALLY found Bigfoot we'd know about it long before the stupid episode aired. So, what would be the point of the show them. By the time they aired it everyone would be "so over Bigfoot." -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 16, 2010, 5:55 pm

MacGyver - TV Shows
Really, how much hate must someone have in their heart for Dana Elcar, it's not as if he intentionally went blind to "spice up the show." That's like Blaming John Ritter being dead for his show going downhill. Sure it wouldn't be the same but you can't blame life on people. "Way to Die Ritter!" In fact, Dana Elcar is dead too, I was so hoping for a MacGyver reunion, oh well. Rest in Peace Jack Tripper and Pete Thornton. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 16, 2010, 5:43 pm

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure - TV Shows
I assume this Bill & Ted is referring to the very short lived live action series since the animated version is covered already (although this show had the same name). How much can you really stretch a premise? I would think executives would let the good name of Bill & Ted rest in peace after the tragedy that was Bogus Journey but apparently the almighty dollar (or thoughts of them since this flopped) seems to overrule common sense. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 16, 2010, 5:27 pm

Mayberry RFD - TV Shows
I didn't think it was half bad. Quiet little sitcom, and Ken Berry's low-keyed Sam was a pleasant character. Obviously the series was never going to match the original Andy Griffith Show's iconic status but I think the producers did a creditable job of keeping the 'Mayberry' spirit going in the wake of Griffith's departure. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 16, 2010, 4:20 pm

Tales of the Gold Monkey - TV Shows
Fun, decent little adventure show that should've lasted a bit longer than it did--and might've, if kiss-of-series-death Roddy McDowell hadn't been part of the cast. Never got why it was that *any* series Roddy landed a regular role in *always* eneded up with an early cancellation notice. He wasn't the most profound or mulitdimensional actor around, but he was always fun in the limited types of characterizations he did, and he certainly shouldn't have been the inevitable series albatross that he was. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 16, 2010, 3:56 pm

Webster - TV Shows
It used to be alternatively funny and sad the way the truth about Emmanuel Lewis was spun in the tabloids by his parents, who initially lied about his age, claiming he was much younger than he actually was so that they would not have to admit that he was in reality a midget; and then, when it became obvious they couldn't lie about his real age any longer, tried to claim that he was simply 'small for his age'. Of course, he's now a grown man of nearly forty years old, and it's obvious he is a midget, standing less than four feet tall. Why they didn't simply tell the truth about his condition in the first place is beyond me--a lot of the speculation about what was really up with him was certainly much weirder than the plain facts would have been! -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 16, 2010, 3:45 pm

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - Movie Series
Dahl was one of the two writers on the 1971 movie's screenplay. Maybe he did hate how it turned out, but honestly I had never heard anyone complain about the original movie until Burton started talking about remaking it. Yes of course things were changed from the book, but name me one movie adaptation of a book that didn't change things? Even Burton added stuff about Willy Wonka's relationship with his dad. (Which he ripped off from his own Edward Scissorhands, complete with horror icon as "dad".) There are things I really like about Burton's version, but when it comes down to it, he miscast Willy Wonka, arguably the most important character. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 16, 2010, 1:55 pm

Private Benjamin - TV Shows
I actually liked this one but got disappointed when Sgt. Lewis was increasingly shown to be as incompetent as the higher-ups she was having to fight. I liked the idea of ONE person trying to organize a bunch of slackers and layabouts into trying to remotely follow protocol despite a lack of real support from their own higher-ups but then when they made Sgt. Lewis more of a dolt and even hinted at a possible fling with HER superior, it just didn't wash. Of course, the show was over even though the producers didn't want to admit it when Eileen Brennan got badly injured and unable to play Sgt. Lewis any more. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:45 pm

Paul McCartney - Celebrities
Ever see him perform live? No, this man is not 'past his prime'. He's a legend to many current performers, and he still kicks ass as a rocker.

Waiting For God - TV Shows
I liked Tom and Diana's carryings on keeping that nursing home rocking! It was good to see them prevail over the effecious Harvey Baines and his whiny assistant. Only problems where when they'd focus too much on Harvey or when Tom's trampy daughter-in-law would self-destruct bringing down whomever she could with her. Still, when the focus stayed on Tom and Diana and avoided the boring younger folks, it was hilarious! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:28 pm

Jenny McCarthy - Celebrities
I'll never forget my first impression of seeing her on MTV and thinking that with her looks, she was a young Grace Kelly reincarnated - until she opened her mouth and revelled in some of the tackiest, most juvenile crudity that would have put the Delta House to shame. As for the vaccine deal? I sympathize with her wanting to find answers re her son's autism and I think ALL parents SHOULD question every medicine their child is offered before the child takes it (as should all competent adults for themselves and any adults they may be caregiving for). However; I agree that it was a bit simplistic on her part to put the WHOLE blame on vaccines without considering other possible factors and it was somewhat sad that she seemed to tout herself as somewhat an expert despite having had no medical training or education. Oh, on a purely shallow note, it's interesting to consider that even in middle age Princess Grace remained a natural beauty to her tragic end while Miss McCarthy. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 5:21 pm

George Carlin - Celebrities
"Cranky old curmudgeon" my butt. He remained one of the sharpest, most acute, and most savagely witty commentators on the sorry-arsed state of the corporate-subsidized American government/Wall Street/right-wing loonytoon-ism complex that exists today. One of his last, most scathing routines ("They Don't Care About You") should be required viewing for every young person in the country. The man pulled no punches, and deserved to wear the mantle of the late, great Bill Hicks imo. It's too bad he passed when he did; we're living in times where we could use his brand of take-no-prisoners, knife edged wit more than ever. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 15, 2010, 5:09 pm

Fish - TV Shows
I liked Abe Vigoda and the late Florence Stanley as Detective Phil and Bernice Fish on "Barney Miller" but they somewhat ruined the characters by making them foster parents- especially since Fish never once seemed as though he'd EVER wanted to do that even after they got the troubled kids moved into their home. He seemed to just want a nice quiet retirement to himself but Bernice (and, for whatever reason, Barry Gordon's character) seemed intent on inflicting problems from the kids for him alone to solve. Why was this supposed to be funny again? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:58 pm

Dragnet - TV Shows
I agree,flech[what happened to ya?]! As much as I always liked watching detective shows to try to guess clues, this one simply was too boring to endure more than a few times. I mean, even Harry Morgan wasn't able to make HIS character tolerable- and that's saying something considering how he virtually had Colonel Potter do a 180 from the original concept! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:51 pm

Danny Thomas Show, The (Make Room For Daddy) - TV Shows
It was okay but I never got why after the previously widowed parents Danny and Kathy married each other, her daughter called him Daddy from Day One while his kids never stopped calling her Kathy (not Mom or any variation). I always thought that was rather lopsidedly disrepectful towards their new mother figure which even the Brady Bunch wouldn't have stood for. Of course, the later years with the showbiz (and singing) increasingly dominating the action- and one of the most awkward adolescences ever broadcast (Rusty's) made the show tough to watch towards the end (and I say this as someone who saw it on Nick at Nite back in the 80's NOT someone who'd followed it all 11 seasons when it was on). -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 15, 2010, 4:45 pm

The two best Star Wars bits they ever did was one where Palpatine is in his office and Vader calls him on his cell phone to let him know that the Death Star was just blown up.

TV Guide - Random Topics
The only time I cared about TV Guide was when South Park was about to reveal who Cartman's dad was (but they instead did that Terrance & Phillip special instead for a lame April Fools' prank) - the cover of TV Guide showed something like Jeopardy where Cartman was the MC and the others were contestants (Kenny was getting shocked by the signal button, no surprise there).

Band of Brothers - TV Shows
Band of Brothers is simply the best mini-series of all time in my opinion. Being able to see the bond of these soldiers and watch the pain they went through during their campaign was simply riveting. Having the actual surviving soldiers lead in and out the episodes was great as well. It really made you feel the realism behind the story. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 14, 2010, 9:00 pm

Tosh.0 - TV Shows
Since this show started around the same time as Web Soup I thought it was going to be a simple rip off. However, same topics and even sometimes the same videos made WAY funnier by Daniel Tosh than Hardwick could ever be. I love the fact that Daniel Tosh isn't afraid to make race jokes or gay jokes. Just relax and realize that you're not the racist, he is (to be fair I don't think he's a racist, it's all about the ratings). -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 14, 2010, 8:55 pm

Men in Black - Movie Series
First MIB was not bad. Nothing spectacular, but good entertainment. I prefered Tommy Lee Jones as the alpha dog over Will Smith. The second one was a flat out mess. Will Smith as the lead role was awful. He was so arrogant and full of himself in this one. In the first one he was somewhat likable, not so much in this one. Also too many pop culture jokes that are now stale (since the movie was released in 2002), cutsy moments (talking dog, aliens drinking beer, etc.), celebrity cameos (with Michael Jackson at his strangest), obvious product placement, and just a boring storyline. I have no idea why we need a third one. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 14, 2010, 5:30 pm

Mr. Bean - TV Shows

Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
40 years ago, and this show is still as off-your-chair funny as ever. Hasn't aged one bit. The comedy focus went in a somewhat different direction after Cleese's departure (more emphasis on long, sometimes a little too esoterically self-indulgent skits rahter than the quick 'blackout' style ones), but even the Cleese-free eps knock out anything on TV today. Nobody will ever top them. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 14, 2010, 11:59 am

Good ole Crappy Doo-Doo. What producer was originally responsible for coming up with the concept of introducing child/childlike spinoffs of popular cartoon characters anyway?

Conservapedia - Websites
Wikipedia does have a liberal bias. Nobody had to "convince" me; I saw it for myself. I compared a conservative and liberal page to make sure, and saw the liberal one was treated better. I thought, "Is it me, or does Wikipedia have a liberal bias?" I Googled, and saw others felt the same way. It also has other biases as well. You should have seen how nasty they were towards people who felt BTF deserved a page! However, while a few Wikipedia pages have balance, the same cannot be said of Conservapedia. Fox News is too liberal? Proves the only way to be a conservative is if you follow all of their stances. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 14, 2010, 8:29 am

Happy Days - TV Shows
Actually, I thought the show was fairly decent for the first season or two. I didn't think it would ever make comedy classic status, but it did have a nice, fairly authentic "American Graffitti"-ish feel back then. Even the Fonzie character was kept under control. Then 'Tha Fonz' became the breakout character on the series, and shortly after the whole show fell apart for me; it became irritating, dumbed-down and totally geared to the Fonzie-fanatics. It always surprised me that Ron Howard stuck around for as long as he did in the mess that HD turned into as a result of Fonziemania. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 13, 2010, 4:32 pm

I voted for the Skull, but was hard pressed not to vote for the Fridge. This film was such a comedown from the first three. It was so silly. I loved "Live Free, Die Hard" (which came out about the same time and also had the original star team up with a younger hero). I wish that the Indy writers could have come up with a similar pairing that truly worked, and that they didn't resort to slapstick to try to keep their audience entertained. -- Submitted By: (LoriDavis) on September 13, 2010, 1:06 pm

1990's - Random Topics
The 90s was a fun decade. That was my high school years and it was a great time to be a teenager. There were good sitcoms on TV. The Simpsons was king and you also had Friends, Home Improvement, NYPD Blue, and the X-Files. This was the last time that there were regularly good sitcoms on TV, before reality TV took over. The 90s witnessed the decline of MTV but had some decent music until the bubblegum music of the latter part of the decade took over and hip-hop and rap became the norm. The 90s ended on September 11, 2001. I guess you can't really say it boned, it just went past its prime (except in fashion which still seems to be hanging on). As an aside, does anyone else think the transition period from about 1989-1991 was such an awkward time period? It was a weird bridge between the two decades. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 12, 2010, 1:04 pm

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - TV Shows
While this show (along with the entire Terminator storyline) has its time holes, I liked the idea of seeing the Terminator series in a TV format. I think Lena Headey did an amazing job as Sarah Conner and Summer Glau was a great choice as a terminator (cause who's really gonna think she could kick your ass). Even though Thomas Dekker was kind of whiney as John Conner the rest of the cast held the story together. Although I liked Green's character of Derek Reese I thought it was incredibly ballsy to just end him with one shot in the last season. It shows realism and no matter how badass you may be or how much of a main character you are, you're no match for a terminator. I really wanted to see where this show went and felt it was cancelled before the entire story could be told (or even ruined) and don't think it got the chance to bone. That could also have been a good thing. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 11, 2010, 4:44 pm

Garfield and Friends - TV Shows
I don't think you should take the movie into consideration when attempting to determine whether or not the TV series "Garfield and Friends" ever boned. The movie is in a whole different spectrum than this show and I think you could put it into consideration if it were "Garfield and Friends the Movie" instead of the "Crappy CGI Adventures of a Cat That Was Once Garfield." I think if you stick to what formula the show used it never really changed for its run: Garfield short, US Acres short and Garfield short. It was a fun show when I was a kid and since I don't recall the new characters of Game Boy or the Great Gazoo ever showing up to spice up the later seasons I'd say it never really boned. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 11, 2010, 4:34 pm

Not a McDonald's fan and haven't eaten there in years. I personally don't think the food tastes good, but that's my opinion. Having said that, McDonald's boned the fish when they dumped the McDonaldland characters and started the "I'm lovin' it" campaign aimed for urban audience. The ads bug the crap out of me and seem to be pandering. Also, I love how they only emphasize their healthy options these days. I can't remember the last ad I saw for a Big Mac or Quarterpounder, but seem to see ones for the snack wraps and coffee pretty much all the time. Most people I know who go to McDonald's don't go for their salads, they go for their burgers or chicken McNuggets. Oh well, McDonald's will always be a good way to relieve constipation. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 11, 2010, 2:39 pm

Action 52 (NES) - Random Topics
Believe it or not, I actually got to play Action 52 on a REAL cartridge. Before AVGN's review came around. So, when did Action 52 bone the fish? For me, it's a tie: realizing how many glitches there actually are, the awful controls, and how stupid the games' premises were: A guy with giant feet stomping on eyeballs. A giant baby climbing furniture and squirting milk at adults half its size. Indecipherable mishmashes of pixels shooting odd-looking bullets at other indecipherable mishmashes of pixels. And with that last sentence, I summed up the premises for more than half the games. But if I have to choose the one game which proved A52 BTFed, I guess it should be Cheetahmen. Why? Because you'd think the other games were poorly made because all the attention went to this one. Sadly for those who paid $199 for this cart, Cheetahmen is only SLIGHTLY better than the other games. And even then, I'm being too generous in calling it "slightly better". The truth came to light: these people couldn't get even ONE game right, tried to cover it up by making 51 games which were worse, then tried to get rich off it by tricking unsuspecting buyers into getting 52 "new and original" games for less than $4 each. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 11, 2010, 1:30 pm

Tim Burton - Celebrities
I don't care for Burton's movies in general, but I thought he nailed it with the Planet of the Apes remake. He took some creative liberties (but not nearly as many as the 1960s "Apes" movie series), but overall he did fine. As for the "nonsensical ending," you'll have to dig up Pierre Boulle (the author of the original Planet of the Apes book) and take it up with him, because that's the way HE ended the story. As for Burton's BTF moment, I'd have to say it was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Not only was the movie a snoozer, but it was also a highly questionable creative decision to have Depp as Wonka bear such a strong resemblance to Michael Jackson. Since MJ at that time was all over the news for child molestation charges, it just came off as creepy. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on September 11, 2010, 10:45 am

I don't think factcheck.org is biased. They're pretty fair and call out both sides of the American political spectrum. However, there is a another fact check site that I believe leans to the left called politifact. They are run by the St. Petersburg Times which is known to lean left. I think they try to be objective but let their liberal biases kick in subconsciously at best. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on September 10, 2010, 6:46 pm

Sarah Palin - Celebrities
Palin is the Paris Hilton of politics. She keeps finding ways to stay relevant. This has nothing to do with ideology, just an observation. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on September 10, 2010, 6:36 pm

Robonic Stooges, The - TV Shows
Huh, this must've been before I was sentient as I don't remember this one. Did someone resurrect the Stooges with cybernetics? That's kind of morbid. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 10, 2010, 3:47 pm

Street Fighter - Random Topics
Capcom is kind of damned if they do/don't with regards to characters. They tried an all-new cast of characters in the first version of Street Fighter III and people hated them. I wasn't fond of any of the SF3 original characters either. They were corny and weren't iconic at all. I liked them all up until 3 came out. But the story has gotten progressively more and more ridiculous. I can deal with crazy chi energy balls and such; the first two games seemed like a kung-fu movie. But now we've got robots, cyborgs, clones, mind control, people coming back from the dead, etc. SF4 was a step up from 3 though. Still haven't played Super SF 4. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 10, 2010, 3:00 pm

Robonic Stooges, The - TV Shows
This show is funny...by how ridiculous it is. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 10, 2010, 8:45 am

Al Franken - Celebrities
Franken's just not funny, and don't get me started with his political standpoints. I watched Saturday Night Live when he made the occasional appearance...didn't make me laugh. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:26 pm

Richard Pryor - Celebrities
Pryor rocked as a stand-up comedian, and in movies - he and Gene Wilder made a great team. R.I.P. Richard Pryor. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:23 pm

April Fools' Day - Random Topics
I stopped caring about April Fools' Day long ago - I guess the boning moment for me was when Comedy Central aired a Terrance & Philip special for South Park instead of airing the much-hyped episode where they unveil Cartman's dad. Now...pulling basic pranks just doesn't have that zing anymore. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:15 pm

Unidentifed Flying Objects (UFOs) - Random Topics
Credibility gap takes my vote. I'd like to believe there are other life forms out there, but they'd surely abduct someone who doesn't live in a shack in the boonies swigging moonshine or escaped from the local loony bin. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:11 pm

Macarena, The - Random Topics
The only time I cared about the Macarena was when I was at Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville welcoming the Jaguars back from their postseason victory in Denver in their first trip to the NFL playoffs. Other than that...didn't really care one way or another. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:07 pm

YouTube Poops - Random Topics
Some YouTube Poops are okay, but tend to overdo it with certain sound clips (i.e. Robotnik's "pingas" line, stuff out of the Mama Luigi episode). -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:05 pm

Rifftrax - Random Topics
I've watched a few "best of" Rifftrax episodes on YouTube and found myself laughing at some parts. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 11:03 pm

Saturday Morning Cartoons - Random Topics
Boned when NBC dropped their Saturday morning cartoon line-up. It made me so mad I kicked a hole in a door. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on September 9, 2010, 10:59 pm

Branded - TV Shows
Oh, I remember it. "What do you do when you're branded... and you know you're a man..." My best friend and I used to run around in Spain singing that (my Dad was stationed there at the time). Didn't see many episodes. They did show it on AFN (Armed Forces TV), but back then, that was hit and miss and you didn't see much very often. Mostly we watched Bonanza in Spanish. HA! -- Submitted By: (HistoryProf) on September 9, 2010, 5:17 pm

Robonic Stooges, The - TV Shows
Another of those kid's shows that was pretty much God's way of telling us that tv producers were doing too much cocaine back in the day. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 9, 2010, 11:39 am

Swamp People - TV Shows
I'm so addicted to this show! These fisherman are a trip, especially Troy. His Cajun accent is classic! Bruce, on the other hand, is an idiot. Alligator fishing ALONE? Then, has his dog in the boat. I keep waiting for a big ol' gator to come up out of the water and grab that dog. And then there's Junior. He didn't take too kindly to that Italian fashion designer going along on the gator fishing trip. He kept calling him "Italy Guy". Gotta love these Cajuns! Whenever I watch this show,that song, "Jambalaya, frog-fish pie, filet gumbo. Son-of-a-gun, we'll have some fun on the bayou...." starts going through my head. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on September 9, 2010, 9:28 am

Tim Burton - Celebrities
Tim Burton made great movies in the past like PeeWee's Big Adventure, Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, and more. However, when Charlie and the Chocolate Factory came along, I heard the Jaws theme. I can't put my finger on when he boned exactly, but I knew it already happened when I saw Alice in Wonderland. It starred Johnny Depp as the worst depiction of the Mad Hatter that I ever saw in my life. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 9, 2010, 8:47 am

Sarah Palin - Celebrities
It was a really foolish move to quit as Alaska's governor. It made her look like a quitter. And while I neither love nor hate her, I agree with kingbk that the jokes about her are getting old. One of the reasons she has so much media attention is because the people who make jokes against her are keeping her in the spotlight. No more anti-Sarah jokes means less media attention for Sarah Palin. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 9, 2010, 8:33 am

Kmart - Random Topics
Everyone in my town goes to Wal-Mart and there is a shortage of employees and the self checkouts are always closed. The employees of Wal-Mart certainly can't be bothered to move at more than a snail's pace. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 9, 2010, 6:21 am

Steven Spielberg - Celebrities
He has had relatively little misfires over a five decade career. Even then, they are simply disappointing. With a strong line up of Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind ET, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan........ the fish must have small bones. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 9, 2010, 4:10 am

Jenny McCarthy - Celebrities
This woman is a bonehead! The vaccination quip was bad enough, but she thinks that botox is okay. If she knew anything, she would know that botox contain botulium (spelling?) which can kill the entire world's population in only a few hundred grams. Thus, botox good vaccination bad = credibility lost and an idiot. What she did beforehand, no comment. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 9, 2010, 2:01 am

George Carlin - Celebrities
He went from one of the great observational comedians of all time to a cranky old curmudgeon. Very sad. But he was a very passable "Mr. Conductor" -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on September 8, 2010, 8:56 pm

Different World, A - TV Shows
This is one of the very few shows that actually got better after the main character left. I never was a huge fan of it, but Denise was probably my least favorite character on the Cosby Show and the one I thought least deserved her own show. The show hasn't aged well at all (but the Cosby Show really hasn't either) and it got really bad once the main characters got hitched, ruining any sexual tension. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 8, 2010, 5:58 pm

Sarah Palin - Celebrities
I'm a moderate independent and can't stand her. I can't even stand the jokes about her anymore. She's just as much of an annoying fame whore as Obama. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 8, 2010, 5:31 pm

Tim Burton - Celebrities
For me, I would say it was Planet of the Apes. I don't know what he was thinking trying to remake something so iconic. And that nonsensical ending! Actually, I should have known what was coming with his previous work, Sleepy Hollow. Hollow was so predictable by-the-numbers Burton. Johnny Depp? Check. Mess up the character's background to make him more "goth" and "edgy"? Check; instead of a teacher he's now a mortician. White makeup to make the already white cast even whiter? Check. I laughed when I saw the posters for Alice in Wonderland that had Johnny Depp in whiteface and wisely avoided it. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 8, 2010, 4:08 pm

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - TV Shows
The first season was sometimes fun in a campy, 'Batman-ish' sort of way; but the second season was awful. No Dr. Huer, stupid replacement voice for Twiki (whom I never much liked from the get-go, but I made allowance for, as long as he was voiced by the great Mel Blanc), and Gil Gerard was still not going to be confused with an actor as a result of the changeover. The real kiss of death came when they introduced Roddy McDowell to the cast; nothing against Roddy, whom I always liked, but any series that he was in or joined as a castmember was always guaranteed to have a very short broadcast life. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 8, 2010, 3:52 pm

Bob Knight - Celebrities
The whole yelling and throwing a temper tantrum style of coaching (or management) is ineffective in the long term. It might work in the short term for success, but after a while people get tired of it, tune you out, and look for a better situation. That's exactly what happened with Bob Knight. For a while, his chair-throwing, curse-spewing behavior won him championships and respect, but by the mid 90s it grew thin and the University of Indiana, as well as basketball fans in general, were tired of it. By the time he went to Texas Tech, he didn't have the same aura. Sure, I think our society has gotten softer over the years, which I personally don't like, but nobody should be treated like dirt either. There has to be a balance between being babied and being abused. I'll give Knight credit for as bad tempered as he was, he never cheated like many college coaches do today. In fact, besides his temper, he ran a clean program. That's one positive thing I can say about him. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 8, 2010, 3:43 pm

Private Benjamin - TV Shows
Never found the show to be all that funny, but my dad would crack me up by noting the striking resemblance between Eilenn Brennan and Senor Wences' hand. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 8, 2010, 3:43 pm

Woody Allen - Celebrities
A disgusting child pedophile who annoys the living hell out of me. Oh, and most of his movies are overrated. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 8, 2010, 3:20 pm

Rap (music) - Random Topics
I was okay with Rap when it was fun Sugar Hill Gang, MC Hammer, Young MC, Etc. However, it did seem that at one point in the early 90's it looked almost as if Rap was starting to die out and give way to something else when Rick Dees went on the Arsenio show and stated with confidence that Rap was 'on the way out.' That, to me seems to be the point where Rap rallied and went into overkill mode with all of the "cop-killer" and hyper-sexualized themes. I blame Rick Dees. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on September 8, 2010, 12:32 pm

Sarah Palin - Celebrities
If Palin really is as stupid as you think she is, than why not be her biggest cheerleader and watch the GOP step on the rake that will whap them in the face by putting someone like that in power? If you think your opponent is doing something dumb, then get out of their way and let 'em do it. -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on September 8, 2010, 12:00 pm

Steven Spielberg - Celebrities
If you're a fan of movies at all, you have to at least respect Spielberg. I don't like all of his movies, but he has made some classics (Jaws, Indiana Jones, E.T., Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, etc.) and his involvement in TV is pretty remarkable too (Animanics, ER, Band of Brothers, etc.) He's a bit more smug and arrogant than I care for, but if you've reinvented the way movies are made and developed many of the innovations now taken for granted, you have every right to be that way. He hasn't been quite the hit maker he was from the 70s-90s, but he still can pull out some award winning material, so I don't think he has boned the fish. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 8, 2010, 11:48 am
