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.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure - Movie Series
And I forgot to add. If you ever want your kid to get into history, this is the movie to do it!!! I always joke with my friends whenever this movie comes up that this movie is the reason that I am into history. Watching Genghis Khan grab a bat and knock off the head of a manequin, or Napoleon get pissed off at the bowling alley will do that to ya X-D! -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 12, 2010, 12:51 am

Wow, I forgot about that book! Thanks for reminding me! I've always wanted that book (circa 2003, nevertheless) but around the time of the redesign I had forgotten about it! Hopefully there will be a "Bone the Fish" book that talks about how the Scottish Site was destroyed, how the fans boycotted the Scottish Rag and Scottish Sellout, and how BTF came into being! The new book could also include the best of the best comments, too! Now, did I miss something else? Oh yeah, Jon Hein stinks. Good day! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on March 11, 2010, 2:41 pm

Though time-travel is not realistic, at least they tried to keep it real. The second movie, however, was an unrealistic mess. They die, go to Hell, meet Death, go to Heaven, meet an alien...ugh.

Scrubs - TV Shows
The show was amazingly consistent throughout its run and they should have quit while they were ahead. While I think the show boned with Kim (because I just don't like Elizabeth Banks as an actress, at all) the re-start of the ninth season with the medical school and all just couldn't sustain. I watched a few of the first episodes and I thought, "This is actually starting stronger than where the very first season of Scrubs started." But it's devolved quickly and sadly, it's just treading water now. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on March 10, 2010, 11:26 pm

I watched it when it started and was bored as hell through the pilot. So I've missed the past couple seasons but started tuning in again because everyone around me who watches it loves it. It's pretty good.

What a great cast to assemble. It's GREAT to see O'Neill as a patriarch character again. He's one of the best of the show, followed by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his partner. Best gay couple on TV.

Countdown with Keith Olbermann - TV Shows
Keith could have been a great counterbalance to Fox News, however he resorts to hate-filled insults which have alienated people who he could have swayed to his side if he kept the vitriol to a minimum. Now his only viewers are his choir he preaches to. It wouldn't hurt if he put on guests with opposing views to state their case and have reasonable debate.

(Dad comes in) Dad: Becky, T.J., that persistent arguing is getting obnoxious! (Later, one of the villains is causing trouble and Becky transforms into WordGirl and Bob turns into Captain Huggyface) Narrator: Oh, no! Persistently obnoxious villains are being persistently obnoxious!] ....You get the idea.

I have no problem with Howard bringing it up whenever, it isnt an import detail to the show.

There is a difference between bashing shows/TV-Characters and real people. It's one thing to say that one is a bad actor (or simply the wrong one for a show) but quite another one to say ie that an actress boned because she put on too much weight or an actor because he made a stupid comment on TV. I, for my part, feel distinctively uncomfortable with the "celebrity"-part of the site. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 7, 2010, 9:50 pm

Sesame Street - TV Shows
It was only after Jim Henson and several other "original creators" of _Sesame Street_ died, that the show began a rapid decline. Too many talented performers, writers and producers vanishing at once...that was what _allowed_ Elmo to morph from a cute supporting character into an annoying diva. They _allowed_ the classic cartoons and songs to seem out of date, when the preschoolers hadn't complained about that for 25+ years. And those deaths _allowed_ new curriculum staff to swarm in, claiming that children weren't learning well enough from the format that had taught their parents about letters, numbers, and social life. Whether the Workshop didn't know or didn't care what all those deaths meant for their flagship show, is anyone's guess: if Jim Henson had gotten that pneumonia checked in time, chances are good that kids and adults could have still watched _Sesame Street_ together without the adults feeling embarrassed in the first 15 minutes. -- Submitted By: (ISNorden) on March 7, 2010, 9:25 pm

FYI- Howard Stern asked Jon Hein about the current state of JTS this week, and he meekly said they changed it, and wouldnt say that it went downhill, he quickly evaded, and said it wasnt his ediotrial control anymore and that it got folded into TV guide, when Howard asked about why they would just change the site, he again brushed it off.... here is the transcription from Mark's Friggin Howard Stern website... Jon Hein- you keep on boning the fish buddy!....................TRANSCRIPT....... Jon Hein came in with his Wrap Up Show preview. Howard said Jon is also the host of The Bonus Show on Howard TV. He said he had some new stuff he wants to throw to the new show. Jon ran down his list of subjects for today's Wrap Up Show. Howard and Jon talked about Mr. Skin wanting to get 20 million for his web site. Jon said that he could probably get 10 million no problem. That led to them talking to Jon about his web site JumpTheShark.com which was absorbed by TV Guide. Jon said that they've kind of lost their identity now because it brings you right into the TV Guide site. Howard said that TV Guide used to be a listing of the TV show listings and they were doing great for years. Then they died when the internet had everything available. Howard asked if he can go on Google and type in ''what's on TV tonight'' and get a list. Jon said that there are ton of sites that have that kind of information so it would probably work. Robin told Howard that he could use his TiVo. Howard said he hates using that guide. It's too hard for him to figure out to see what's on that night. Robin asked Jon if they ask him to do anything with his web site anymore. Jon said that they do once in a while and he's willing to do it but he really doesn't have much control over it now. Jon ran down the rest of the show preview and they ended up talking about the Roger Ebert stuff they were playing this morning. Howard said he had some more of the clips that Sal and Richard made up using a computer voice. " -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on March 7, 2010, 4:14 pm

Swan- wasnt "the site that shall not be named" always a site that bashed things for when they started to go downhill? I think with the elimination of the hate votes and political propaganda votes that were stacked and the new voting system that limits how much one IP can vote ovre a certain time will clean the site up.

About a month or so ago, the Bo and Jim radio show from here in the Dallas area had a "Did You Know?" segment where the most unusual true facts are mentioned for listening pleasure. One of the facts was, "Did you know that 'Happy Birthday to You' is currently owned by Warner Chappell Music (Warner Bros.' songwriting division)?" They then mentioned that any public establishment (restaurants, etc.) that actually sing the song have to send a royalty check for $1 to Warner Chappell every time this song is performed! (What do you think YouTube will do because of that WMG issue, mute out entire home videos of birthday parties that have this song?)

Total Request Live (TRL) - TV Shows
I remember when this show first started and they showed the top five requested videos in their entireties; at that time the Goo Goo Dolls song Iris was probably the most over-played song on the radio but it seemed OK for City of Angels was a hit at the box office and MTV hadn't yet realized that the best and easiest way to make loads of money was to promote the Backstreet Boys as much as humanly and when that happened each day was: "Here at number one are the Backstreet Boys with. . .". After that, it was all about who to promote 24-7 so MTV can get richer faster namely the teenpop goo. I'd stopped watching the show long before this happened, but had the misfortune of catching bits and pieces of some loser girl say: "I'm requesting NSYNC's song BYE BYE BYE because I told my ex-boyfriend bye bye bye! WHOO!" TRL is a fine example of how MTV doesn't give a (censored) about real music anymore; it's all about money. Why else do we never see fat and bald but smart-as-hell-when-it-comes-to-music Matt Pinfield anymore? Why else would MTV have spent 60 to 90 minutes on how Britney Spears is the First Lady of TRL?

Total Request Live (TRL) - TV Shows
I've just read that TRL is only live twice a week (M/W) and then tape a show afterwards. From what I've read, the video positions are the same from one day to the next. Um... as my posting below reveals, the music videos on TRL, just like on MTV are an afterthought. TRL just shows 5 second clips of videos these days and then cram as much MTV promos, celebs and artists who want to promote their latest work, and recap celebrity juiciness. All that is confirmed when I was sick from work a few weeks ago and ended up watching TRL. HEY MTV, WANNA KNOW WHY YOUR RATINGS HAVE PLUNGED ON TRL, FORCING YOU TO DO TAPINGS? No, don't look to Carson Daly leaving the show. Blame it on MUSIC VIDEOS leaving the show. You see MTV, teenagers vote for music videos they want to SEE on the show - back when the show started, TRL actually played just about ALL the video. Hey MTV, when you only show 5 seconds of a video, there's a reason your audience will tune out and go online to sites that will show the WHOLE music video. Get a clue MTV! The less music videos you show on your network, the more people tune out. The same goes for TRL. Why bother voting when you can't see the video you voted for?

Once upon a time, TRL was a show that actually showed a FULL music video (or at least most of it). Then, hosts stepped in. Gradually, TRL became an infomercial about pop culture and less about the videos as sometimes, only a 5 second clip of a music video was shown. Wow, this sounds just like how MTV itself evolved. Someday, no videos will be shown and teenagers will still be voting!

TRL has gone too far now. A recent episode I just saw had special guest stars, Avenged Sevenfold. Their first two albums were great, but their third album is whats making them MTV stars right now. First their on Headbangers Ball, now TRL. These guys suck now. They say they love bands like Pantera, Megadeth, and earlier Metallica, and they play metal, but how can you be a metal band when you have pop punk vocals in the mix? Its bad enough that we have to deal with the likes of Limp Bizkit, N Sync, Nelly, Britney Spears, and 50 Cent, but now Avenged Sevenfold just got added to that list. TRL has now gotten beyond worse. Its hard to watch when you have a band that was once metalcore on there and is now a mainstream alternative-metal band. I'm so pissed that they have so many fans and are selling so many copies of their new album. Way to go MTV. You just made a good band go bad, just like you did with Metallica.

It's bad enough TRL Is pretty much the only music show on mtv,but now they don't even play their videos ATLEAST half way like they did before,It's 20 seconds of a video then it's on to more guests,stupid questions with those guests,stupid games and pointless time with the "fans". Man i can't even enjoy a video anymore,I sware that the other day the Ludacris video "Number one spot" faded in and not 8 seconds later people started clapping and it got louder and louder and then screaming came about and it made it to 14 whole seconds (record time) and then bam! "That was Ludacris with number one spot,oh boy that's a great video"...no kidding,i wouldn't know. Someone needs to speak out loud on this,If you want music go to BET or MTV2,Because mtv isn't about music anymore and obviously MTV2 was made so they could get away with it.

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
OK everybody, here's the truth about The Simpsons from somebody who's been watching the show since Day 1 (and on Day 1, i was about the same age as Bart...not so much anymore...) The show jumped the shark the day Phil Hartman died. It was on its way down when that happened, but the last truly hilarious season was season 8. (Phil's last episode aired at the beginning of Season 9.) Seasons 3 through 8 are what that show is, was, and always will truly be about. I remember crying from laughing so hard every week that those episodes aired in the mid- to late-1990s. Nothing on TV at the time even came close, and no show since has made me laugh so much within every episode of every season so consistently. That said, the show began to go slightly downhill by Seasons 7 and 8, and markedly by Seasons 9 and 10, but leveled off at some point around Seasons 10 and 11. People will leave comments saying that such-and-such season is the worst ever, but the truth is, it hasn't gotten much worse (or better) since season 10 or 11. In nearly every episode, there will be at least 2 or 3 genuine laughs that will hold up upon repeat viewing. And within every season, there will be 3 or 4 episodes that are downright hilarious...as well as 2 or 3 that just make you want to cringe. (The all-musical episode, The Simpsons Bible Stories, the N-Sync episode, etc. etc.) But remember: for a show that's been on the air for nearly 20 years, they had a good 8 year run, which was subsequently followed by a decent 11+ year run that has kept them within the funniest 5 or so American TV shows on the air at any given time. Sure, we all know how every episode is going to turn out, but we've known it for some time. It's still better than most shows, but nowhere near its height. But at its height, it was simply the funniest TV show ever to air--and every other cartoon show (and non-laugh-track live-action show, for that matter) owes The Simpsons its livelihood. To put it another way, The Simpsons stole every comedy idea to ever come across a TV screen that came before it, and made it their own by adding more. And every show that has come after The Simpsons has borrowed from those Simpsons-skewed ideas. It has proven to be the most influential comedy show to ever air on American TV.

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
The Simpsons Jumped the Shark when the episodes started becoming so stupid and nonsensical that you felt like mailing matt groening hate-mail i dont consider myself "Christian" or a Religious-follower but i don't like the episodes where religion is mocked either, like when homer becomes the leader of the springfield church and does a whole bunch of blasphemous stuff, and the one when a toy rocket damages the church and it get's repaired in a "Casino-ized" fashion and another instance of blashemy on this show is where the simpsons are on top of their roof watching a meteor shower and homer makes the comment:"I Wish god were still alive to see this" Oct 15, 2007 12:06 PM Dallas This comment was taken from www.jumpedtheshark.com -- Submitted By: (jumpedthesharkcommenttaker) on March 6, 2010, 5:25 pm

Last Season (18) was without a doubt the worst season of the Simpsons ever. However, now at season 19, only three episode have premiered (forth premiering in only 2 hours) they have far surpassed the quality of that awful season. From what I can tell, only one of the three writers of those episodes worked on the show last season, so there is new blood. That means no more of the crap from last year. Time to look to the future. We don't want another season 18, 19 is better already.

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
I think the three hundredth episode jumped the shark. Maybe it was a little bit before that, but I remember the 300th episode being super-hyped, and I didn't like it as much as the reruns they played on WB. And after that, they just weren't that funny. Conan O'Brien was a great writer for the show. Oct 12, 2007 8:06 PM Andrew This comment was taken from www.jumpedtheshark.com -- Submitted By: (jumpedthesharkcommenttaker) on March 6, 2010, 5:23 pm

Lost - TV Shows
It jumped when the Others had Jack, Kate, Sawyer and Locke surrounded...and let them go. And then a few episodes later concocted a very elaborate scheme involving Michael killing Ana Lucia and Libby so as to lure Jack, Kate, and Sawyer into their clutches. But as I said, they had them surrounded a few episodes ago, why not take them then? Also, why didn't Ben just ASK Jack to perform the surgery when they first landed? He probably would have said yes. And finally, I love how the Others kept saying "we're not murderers", but Ethan killed the guy on the beach and nearly killed Charlie. And Goodwin killed a bunch of people, too. Got lame after the 1st season ended. Oct 8, 2007 6:19 PM Anonymouseee This comment was taken from www.jumpedtheshark.com -- Submitted By: (jumpedthesharkcommenttaker) on March 6, 2010, 5:20 pm

Lost - TV Shows
Too many annoying characters getting too much air time. And also the story just got more and more unbelievable and cliched. It's truly tragic that a show with such great potential really went downhill so much that they aren't considered for the Emmy anymore after the first season. Second season was a real disaster. The story moves along at a snails pace while at the same time they introduce new mysteries instead of answering old ones in every episode. The final episode will be a real bummer because it will all be a dream or involve drugs or something like that.

Joebagofdonuts has a point, nevertheless. I am beginning to think that including new topics was a mistake all along. The political topics, which only bring users at each other throats, are somewhat irritating, because really, they can't be worded it a way that it would be making sense for voting "never boned" or "day one", because political issues don't tend to be clear cut. Then there are the whole topics where people are judging celebrities. It's turning into a bashing site! You don't know them, so please, give them a break! But the part which make JTS big and which draws users here to BTF is going under more and more. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 6, 2010, 3:48 pm

Full House - TV Shows
Agreed. I like this show, yet I can't watch it past season five, which I believe was the last good season. In season six I just got really stupid with DJ dating that fat deadbeat, and all the focus being shifted on Michelle being a spoiled brat (You can't watch it for five minutes without wanting to reach into the TV and backhand her), and the plots became really cheesy and unbelievable. (The Disney crossover episode was the worst). Then by season 8, it was a mess. What is weird though is as the show got crappier, the ratings went higher. Goes to show America's taste for quality television.... -- Submitted By: (Runfromcheney) on March 6, 2010, 1:24 pm

Sapphire & Steel - TV Shows
Never really 'boned the fish.' Very low budget attempt of the UK's ITV to rival time travel drama of Doctor Who, but even the Doctor was suffering from special effects during the early 1980s too. Some of the stories dragged on for ever - the soldier on the train station. And one wonders what Steel actually does apart from order Sapphire around! That said, the episode where victims are 'trapped in photographs' was extremely creative, and the one with the imaginary rooftop building. The cliffhanger ending in the petrol station also rounded off a series that posed more questions than answers. Great TV. -- Submitted By: (ivortheengine) on March 6, 2010, 1:22 pm

Twin Peaks - TV Shows
I genuinely like this show. However, it should be noted that the reason why the producers eventually revealed the killer was because the show generally was about the musings of the townspeople, and the murder was just a subplot. However, many didn't understand that, and just thought the show was about the murder, and thus quit watching after their identity was revealed. -- Submitted By: (Runfromcheney) on March 6, 2010, 1:16 pm

Joebagofdonuts- hate to disagree with you, but we spent hours clearing off the conservative and the liberal vote stacking, and the Dawn Lyn hate votes, and Porche DeRossi Hate votes. Also the voting has ben upgraded to prevent massive vote stacking and the political grandstanding votes. And as for Barack Obama being gold on the site, there seem to be mostly negative comments and votes for him, now that we got rid of the vote stacking on his page. So take a look around again before you declare the site boned when all of your complaints have been duly fixed, and the permanent solutions in place! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on March 6, 2010, 5:39 am

Terminator - Movie Series
rainbowjane: The second movie actually did a pretty good job of maintaining the integrity of the storyline (i.e., upholding continuity by being consistent with the first movie). It helped that James Cameron directed both T1 and T2. However, the third movie brought in some SERIOUS continuity issues. If I recall correctly, both the Sarah Connor Chronicles TV series and the fourth movie (Terminator Salvation) ignored T3, and rightly so. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on March 5, 2010, 9:04 pm
