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.

I Dream of Jeannie - TV Shows
A story about a genie needs to have restrictive elements or there's only about 24 minutes of story until "happily ever after..." or "the end of the world..." so we need to accept that Tony is too moral to "cheat" etc and whining about the examples each time is kinda pointless. Buy into each fictional reality or maybe don't bother following the show. I had no initial problem buying into ALF, Jeannie, Bewitched, Star Trekkers or Jedi, however, Lost, Mutant X, You Wish, Teen Angel or Surface just couldn't draw me so I passed. There's little value, say, in quibbling over Trek science like "artificial gravity" if you've watched the shows for more than 20 minutes - you just buy into it and move along. If they had suddenly said the device was running off a 9Volt Duracell after the seventh season of TNG, I might call that a Bone to pick at. A powerful sensual blond female wanting to make a straight healthy astronaut's life better against his orders was a comedy concept I bought into from Barbara Eden so I went along and enjoyed the ride. Now if Jeannie had suddenly become the Lieutenant Governor of Florida... Realistic Fantasy versus Stretched Credibility perhaps? -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 24, 2010, 4:08 pm

Peanut allergies - Random Topics
Pelirojo, I was merely describing a current state of affairs not endorsing a particular action. People need to reclaim ultimate responsibility for their own specialized needs though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Severe_combined_immunodeficiency Kids are commonly forbidden to bring any peanut butter to school and, in some day care situations, parents must sign a pledge that their kids must be nut-free at home too in case any traces should remain. It's not labeling that concerns me, the more info the better, rather it's a strategy which would seem to have only dire counter-evolutionary results. A similar misguided strategy may be connected to the dramatic rise in childhood asthma rates, but, let's not digress. The world is a difficult environment and is not getting easier. To foster a fatal weakness into future generations is a poor tactic. Better to figure out how to switch off that gene in ourselves or to take the specific toxin out of the peanut crop. I'm sure there's an Aggie working on this in a university lab right now. Treating peanut butter as if it's the new Sarin is just crazy. An unscientific internet check shows that more people are at severe risk from bee stings (2%) than peanuts (0.4-0.6%), yet, bee-allergic people just tend to keep an EpiPen handy and try to avoid bees. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 24, 2010, 3:22 pm

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - TV Shows
"Never jumped. Definite decline in later seasons" - Um, that's what jumping/boning is! The point where a show starts to decline, not the point where it becomes unwatchable! I can't see a cliche moment where Buffy boned in any classic sense, however it was a show that eventually started to go stale due to repitition and probably went on a bit too long. I would say end of series 5 it probably boned. I also agree with what another poster said, that they tried to introduce too many 'main characters'. While it's nice to have some additional recurring/fringe characters like Riley, Dawn, Anya etc, they made a mistake in trying to force them on the viewer too often and too quickly. -- Submitted By: (Piemaster) on May 24, 2010, 4:29 am

Star Trek: Voyager - TV Shows
I can sum up Voyager in four words - "nice idea, poorly implimented". This goes for everything about the show including the concept itself, the characters and a lot of the individual episodes too. It was watchable in places, but it just never really gripped me the way TNG and DS9 did. The characters just stirred no feelings of empathy from me, and it's kind of hard to like a show when you are secretly hoping that most of the cast, including the 'main character' would leave the show. -- Submitted By: (Piemaster) on May 24, 2010, 3:45 am

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
I don't think this series ever boned. In fact, I think it took a while to get going and the last series was the best of all. DS9 was probably a better series overall, but TNG went out on a high. -- Submitted By: (Piemaster) on May 24, 2010, 3:31 am

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
I would say when Jadzia was killed. Not because Jadzia was a particularly great character, or that Ezri was a particularly poor one, but the whole last season just had a feeling of the show having lost its impetus and was limping along a little bit. The Dominion War was started to drag a little bit and too much time was being spent on the holodeck. -- Submitted By: (Piemaster) on May 24, 2010, 3:27 am

Friends - TV Shows
I would say that Chandler and Monica hooking up (not marrying) was the point where the show started to get worse. It still had it's moments after that, but having C&M in a relationship removed a lot of the souces of humour from the show and what replaced it just wasn't very funny as they didn't really work as a couple. Remained watchable until the end though. -- Submitted By: (Piemaster) on May 24, 2010, 3:23 am

Red Dwarf - TV Shows
In my opinion there has never been such a clear cut BtF moment at Red Dwarf at the end of series 6. In series 7 and 8, the plots became too far-fetched, too much story was sacrificed for cheap laughs and the cast seemed to lose all their chemistry once Rimmer left. It still had it's moments, and series 8 was a little better than 7, but it was never quite the same. -- Submitted By: (Piemaster) on May 24, 2010, 3:16 am

Peanut allergies - Random Topics
baldrick, Am I reading you correctly in that you think we should isolate those with peanut allergies? Even if one doesn't care that it would be exceedingly punitive to folks who didn't ask to have that reaction, how difficult would implementing that proposed solution be compared to merely continuing to print a 'this product may contain peanuts' label on packages for consumers to make the decisions for themselves about whether they want to eat something with peanuts or serve it to friends/family who may have the allergies? If you don't want to have kids with peanut allergies ask your intended to take an allergen test before having sex with them if you like but isolating folks as though they comitted a heinous crime seems a bit extreme and quite the opposite of any freedom of choice! Thankfully, I don't have that condition but if I knew someone I cared about had it, I'd be sure to check the labels before I served them anything I knew could trigger possibly fatal reactions. Personally, I think for the sake of those who suffer the allergies (rather than those who consider it annoying to read the packaging labels), peanut allergies boned Day One. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 23, 2010, 5:40 pm

Tiger Woods - Celebrities
PYLrulz, there's a big difference between average joes like us losing our cool on the course and PGA professionals. I've been to some PGA events and most of the golfers keep their cool even when they hit bad shots. Tiger Woods gets a pass because he's Tiger Woods. Great golfers like Tom Watson, Arnold, Jack and even Phil Mickelson never toss their clubs or cuss up a storm. Being a PGA golfer you are held to a higher level of professionalism. 90% of the golfers would get fined or suspended if they behaved like Tiger does on the course. The excuses of "he's just competitive" or whatever don't fly anymore. He needs to learn some tact and class. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 23, 2010, 11:56 am

High-concept shows like I Dream of Jeanie or ALF get an exemption from some of the usual JTS/BTF reasons because, as a viewer, one needs to accept the stupidity of each show's reality and just go with the concept that this Air Force astronaut is too prudish to take advantage of every guy's dream situation because he's an officer and a gentleman. Shows with genies or witches or extraterrestrials merely have to make their own kind of sense, not make real sense. For this reasoning, I disregard any idea of Day One for such shows except when they just fail to convincingly sell their reality at all.

Remembered liking this show even if it negotiated a couple Boning markers. Same Character/Different Actor when the daughter Jenny was recast; then, New Kid In Town when Declan became a classic "cousin Oliver" in the last year. They weren't playing it safe as a normal sitcom and I applaud that. Respect also for wrapping the show once the male lead passed away instead of trying to import David Spade as an uncle or something. Rona and Bill had some classic Lucy & Ethel episodes through the years. Also, the writers were able to get serious - even morbid without feeling like A Very Special Episode. I'll reserve voting until I re-watch my old VHS tapes. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 11:42 am

Peanut allergies - Random Topics
In order to try and defend those unfortunates born with a hyper-allergy to such a mild toxin as that found in the peanut legume, our modern culture has, in effect, placed the rest of the gene pool into a anti-nut bubble rather than socially isolating the at-risk individuals. The inevitable effect of this policy will be to foster this genetic vulnerability in the general population. Many of the foods we consume as adults are mildly toxic in some regard - coffee, tea, certain herbs, alcohol etc are used specifically for their mildly toxic effects. Other stuff like raw milk or honey or the way we choose to prepare certain dishes make them slightly risky from a hygiene angle in favor of preserving the purity of the taste or eating enjoyment. We should preserve the idea of Choice in what we eat. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 10:23 am

Dr Pepper - Random Topics
I didn't personally see the episode and it's never to be re-broadcast by CBS due to legal and political pressure, however, one can assume that Dave was making a joking reference to the fact that most US soft drinks made from High Fructose Corn Syrup in place of natural real sugar or sucrose ARE the liquid end result of an agri-industrial process that begins (and one could also say ends) with manure. Liquid manure accelerates the growth of government subsidized corn to make cornstarch which is chemically processed into HFCS. If you can get a bottle of the beverage (same goes for Coke) from an overseas factory (Mexico, Caribbean?) you might like the way it tastes. To me it's just peppermint flavored cola - not a very tasty treat. I'd rather not dwell on the literal version of what was suggested below. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 10:10 am

The original family cast and production team was not bad and they were aiming the jokes at two levels - kids and adults.

Somehow the show had some notable guests and co-stars "before they were stars", otherwise, CinC would be barely remembered - except for (Jennifer Runyon) Gwendolyn Pierce.

ABC World News - TV Shows
I'm sorry but ever since Peter Jennings died, ABC News hasn't really lived up to much of the way they revolutionized the evening newscast. Charles Gibson has done his best but we all knew that his ultimate retirement was coming for a while and it's hard to say who ABC can even replace him with. And the way I look at it, it might just be better for the networks to reduce their news departments to the weekly magazine shows and let the local channels just take the whole 6/5 central hour for their newscast instead, even they can cover the world news with the help of provided reports from their affiliated network. Meanwhile, cable and internet has become a more accessible source for news and in my case the internet is really all that I need. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on May 21, 2010, 3:11 pm

Sesame Street - TV Shows
Elmo represents a sad reality about the television business. When a TV show is well loved, they look into the reasons behind it, including the characters, and then from there they emphasize the very things they think that everyone loves best. Problem is, the way certain characters are exposed affects the qualities that the show already had and ultimately the show becomes about something else against it's original premise. And either it will become hugely popular and maybe better over time, or the changes end up corrupting the show to the point that no one likes it anymore and correcting the mistake often comes too late to save it. Thing is, Elmo got exposure as he did because there was a favoritism for the cuteness of the character initially, and the producers in their mind saw him as the path of profitability (and believe me Sesame Street is the prime example of commercialism intruding on PBS). The more they showed Elmo, it only resulted in him getting his own segment on the show and then everything else about Sesame Street seemed to become minor in comparison. Likewise the show's format has been altered to fit the rules of the short sighted E/I guidelines. That said, Sesame Street is never going to be the same show it once was, business got in the way. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on May 21, 2010, 2:16 pm

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) - Random Topics
PeTA is in no position to talk about ethical treatment of animals as long as they continue to euthanize perfectly healthy cats and dogs. And their founder...I heard she bragged about having surgery so she couldn't have kids. That's the smartest thing she ever did - see to it her inferior genetic material doesn't pollute the gene pool. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 21, 2010, 2:09 pm

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
baldrick - It gets even better where Terry Farrell (the actress who played Jadzia Dax) is concerned. In the series finale, there's a scene where Worf is about to leave the station, and there's a montage of images as Worf reminisces about his time on DS9. In all those images, Jadzia doesn't appear even once -- and Worf had MARRIED her!! The reason for Jadzia's absence was not that Worf was so jaded, but that Farrell wanted scads of money for her image to even be used in a brief flashback appearance. Rather than give her the dough, Paramount evidently collectively decided "The hell with her" and left her completely out of Worf's trip down Memory Lane. That dovetails pretty nicely with your theory about why Jadzia got a redshirt death. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 21, 2010, 7:29 am

John Edwards - Celebrities
Johnnydough, The cheating on his wife was bad enough but for him to cheat on her- knowing she has inoperable, terminal cancer THEN insist on her playing 'happy family' and helping him cover this mess up just so he could run for President is utterly vile and stomach churning! As someone who's had relatives who've dealt with cancer, I find what he did to her indefensively cruel and heartless and I feel sorry for ALL his children- especially his youngest who has TWO parents contemptuous enough as to treat a cancer patient so despicably. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 21, 2010, 7:25 am

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - TV Shows
I agree with a lot of what creatrix said...Seasons 2 and 3 are as good as television gets; season 4 was the inevitable letdown; season 5 it rose again, and was meant to have ended on the "high" note of Buffy's ultimate sacrifice for her sister and the world...but I thought Buffy boned in season 6; Willow became way too powerful and confident - a far cry from the character in the beginning...too far for me. And although its hard for me to say the show totally sucked after season 5 (there were some SERIES high points that followed), it was almost a different show. And season 7 was just crazy...all those potentials and the contrived "Big Bad" of the First...but I still hated to see it end. I probably held out hope that it could recapture SOME past glory...and that is one of the things that made it a great show in the first place...you knew what it was at one time...but all great shows run out of material. But there was more great TV in seasons 2 and 3 (and scattered throughout EVERY season...save, maybe, 7) than most series squeeze out of ten seasons... -- Submitted By: (force26) on May 20, 2010, 9:01 pm

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
Too right "her death scene was such a throwaway that she might as well have been a redshirt." The actress was rumored to have been universally disliked on set so this may have been a deliberate snub. Don't go away mad - just go away!! -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 12:00 pm

Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson - TV Shows
Yes. Wild and wacky stuff! Johnny eventually gets off the line "I didn't even know you were Jewish!" The Ed Ames Tomahawk incident clip can be searched online. The Carson Tonight Show might have Boned when Johnny began to try doing Letterman-style bits out-of-studio and he was just too awkward and not in his element. "Shower with a Star" may have been an early precursor of this. His classic character bits were great in their day though. Climbing into golf carts with drag race champ Shirley Muldowney in 1986 to race around the studio lot is the type of thing even Letterman will now delegate to a sidekick. Johnny looked very strange doing this. Carson was the master of the clever quip though. Even the legendary response to Zsa Zsa Gabor that they both said never happened - makes sense just because it's the kind of thing only Johnny could have said. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 9:59 am

Sabrina the Teenage Witch - TV Shows
Is there some reason for the bashing of MJH that I'm not aware of? I mean she's not a toothpick or a supermodel but she seems to draw a lot of negative comments about her appearance while actors from similar youth shows before and since get a pass. Was she worse looking than Hillary Duff or Miley Cyrus or Britney Spears' sister for instance? The first year had the best sidekick. Casting her bratty sister as a cousin in an obvious backdoor pilot attempt was lame. The Salem puppet was getting kind of threadbare. Still, it was mostly entertaining up through the magazine(?) workplace year. Do I remember George Wendt as an ersatz Lou Grant? -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 9:00 am

This Old House - TV Shows
True and True. Though you both have very valid points, I didn't exactly hate the change of the show from instruction to more of a wish-list dream-home travel whatever show. There were so many other pure how-to programs going on (some of them local or regional), I'm glad they stepped outside their original mission. I didn't need to see Norm do any more biscuit jointing after the first two times. Bob Vila's departure was timely - he was becoming too arrogant and wanting to shoulder in on the demonstrations which just made them longer not better. The second guy was fine but even the third host is good enough. It's the material that matters anyway, not the host. If they had to move up-market to find novel material, then I'm glad they made that call. This Old House Classics used to be shown somewhere IIRC. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 8:40 am

Vicar of Dibley, The - TV Shows
I loved this show. Haven't seen some of the specials yet so I'll reserve judgment on any Boning incidents. I tend to give shows like this, with such broadly drawn characters, a lot of leeway for outlandish moments. The PBS outlet just shows the first couple of series and I've only caught the Easter Special one time. I need to re-watch the Spring through Winter series as well. No-No-No-No-No-No-Yes! -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 8:24 am

John Travolta - Celebrities
Don't care about actors' sexuality but the man-kiss on the airplane stairs is either something he just does normally as part of his personal/family culture/whatever OR he was kissing a male lover. If the former, why was it such a "rare" moment? He ought to be doing this everyday like shaking hands for the rest of us. If the latter is true, it's stupid to maintain the lie in these times. Be who you are, man! Congrats on the coming baby with your wife though. Your sex life does NOT affect national security, so it should not occupy such ongoing attention. Things that "just don't add up" tend to hold the public's attention in a very annoying way. When the subject individual advocates a certain life principle (Scientology), he does leave himself open to rebuke. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 8:14 am

ESPN - Random Topics
Several things. 1. Everybody on ESPN is trying to be like their 90's counterparts, and fail epically at it. 2. Bias. If you are not the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Lakers, or Dallas Cowboys, you don't mean sh*t in their eyes. 3. Poor coverage. Look at their rotation for Monday Night Football. Yikes at times. NASCAR races. In the 90's, they were regarded as the best in covering NASCAR races. Now, they just plain suck. 4. More Bias. Its not as bad as it used to be, but I remember a time when if ESPN didn't cover it, they could care less about it. I remember when NASCAR took its races to FOX and NBC. ESPN treated NASCAR as if it was nothing more than a backwoods hick sport. The NHL was laughed upon the first few years after the lockout. In all, I say its time someone gives some competition to ESPN, or at least they pull their heads out of their rears. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:52 am

I will say, Soccer is gaining traction in this country, though if I am the head honchos in the MLS, or US Soccer in general, I take notes from the NBA, NHL, NASCAR, etc., all the sports that had a surge in popularity, just to start sagging, and not do what they did. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:45 am

National Basketball Association (NBA) - Random Topics
Scotty, yeah, you do have those occasional upsets, but for the most part, its usually the Lakers, Celtics, Spurs, or, if you look back about 10 or 20 years, Bulls, or Pistons that end up in the finals. The NHL and NFL in comparison, yeah, you usually still have at least one favorite/familiar face in, but you can almost always count on a upset or two every playoffs. Hell, look at the NHL playoffs this year. Who would of expected the Flyers and Canadiens as the two Eastern Conference finalists? For the NBA, unless you are in the Top 2 in your conference in a season, you might as well, way more times than not, forget about the NBA Finals. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:38 am

My brother worked at a Subway, so I can tell you easily of the inner workings on how Subway operated. Granted, some of their stuff is good (I love the Seafood Salad Subs), the subs with meat on them... talk about cheap on the meat!!! When my brother worked at a Subway, even his boss did not like the rule on how much can be put on a sub, but was forced to go along with it. It got to the point for my brothers boss, that he basically ended his franchise affiliation with Subway, and opened his own sub shop. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:13 am

Jeopardy! - TV Shows
I guess this, like the Michael Larson deal with Press Your Luck, I just don't get why people think the boning moment would be because of a single contestant. Yeah, it was a massive run, but it was impressive, watching each episode waiting and seeing when and if Jennings would slip up. Always a fun show to watch. Never boned. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:05 am

Seinfeld - TV Shows
Legit argument, but that last episode still left a bad taste in my mouth. Ok, I can get the arguments people throw out there about the last episode, but that's all you could come up with, what basically amounted to a clip show? IMO, was the king of all bad episode finales until The Sopranos had their cut to black ending. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:02 am

Daria - TV Shows
I still rock friends' minds when I tell them Daria was spun-off from Beavis and Butthead. Seriously, the shift from that show to this one I think represented a shift in sensibilities in general. I don't remember much of Beavis and Butthead, I remember laughing every once in a while but the humor was generally ineffectively juvenile. Then Daria appeared and I really loved it. I thought it was brilliant: great voice acting, funny plots, and well-made scripts. The show still stands as one of the funniest animated shows and I think, a little ahead of its time. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on May 19, 2010, 11:15 pm

Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - TV Shows
Agreeing with much of what doctor_awesome wrote. Avery Brooks was a bit over-the-top at times and I tuned out the parallel world stories even though Nana Visitor was sexier as that character. DS9 was the most worthy of all the Trek stuff. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 19, 2010, 10:14 pm

Was tempted to say Finale but it didn't really bother me. It was just an ambitious epilogue.

Compared to other trivia shows, Jeopardy is still alone at the top. It climaxed after the Ken Jennings marathon and his subsequent defeat in the All-Time champions challenge or whatever it was called.

Does Apathy count? -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 19, 2010, 7:09 pm

Sports Night - TV Shows
Very good show but it was never going to keep it up. The storyline of bringing in Macy as a "fixer" to tweak the show was a bit of Art imitating itself on a show where the network had clearly already done an off-season tweak to the show itself by adding a laugh track. This might have actually been done mid-season the first year but I'm too lazy to check now. Still, it was a great self-contained bit of TV archive. I think they handled their "Very Special Episode" quite well and Natalie made me buy her reaction about the "Mary Pat Shelby" incident. That was tough. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 19, 2010, 6:50 pm
