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.

Agreed on having to jump through a ton of hoops to "Catch 'em all". My ex-girlfriend and I were into the game somewhat (if there was nothing to do, we would usually get our DS'es out and play), and unless you are absolutely committed to that game, there is really no use of "Catch 'em all" -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on January 6, 2010, 4:02 am

Vegetarianism - Random Topics
Vegetarianism, when done properly, is every bit as healthy as an omnivorous diet (when that's done properly as well). The problems come about when people do it improperly and don't get enough of nutrients such as iron, protein and calcium, and when they become self-righteous jerks. Most vegetarians are pretty good, though, and choose the lifestyle for a variety a reasons. Just don't confuse vegetarianism with veganism. Vegetarians come in all different flavors, from just not eating meat to refusing to eat anything with a face. Vegans don't eat meat or any animal products/by-products. In either case, the change should be gradual to prevent your body from going into shock and you should get advice from either a doctor or a nutritionist on how to meet all of your body's nutritional needs without eating meat. -- Submitted By: (Maskdt) on January 5, 2010, 4:23 pm

Well, it did bone the fish, but at least it's been coasting down. More a gradual decline of quality.

I only think of the first two as being canon. The 3rd movie seemed unnecessary since T2 wrapped things up pretty well and the 4th...well...I prefer to think of the 4th as just a high-budget fan film.

Captain Planet and the Planeteers - TV Shows
While the show had good intentions it never really taught kids any really effective means of helping the environment. Sure, you can clean up a part of a stream, but that won't do anything about the root problem (ie- littering, corporate pollution). Not that kids have any influence whatsoever over the root problems to begin with. Again, good intentions but largely ineffective. -- Submitted By: (Maskdt) on January 5, 2010, 10:44 am

The post was later removed, and replaced by one that began, To of my listeners at Fox Sports Radio, I wanted to let you know that come the end of the month I will be parting on good terms with the network.

Friday the 13th - Movie Series
For me, part 5 was the moment when I knew it was all going to be downhill. The series just wasn't actually scary anymore and on top of that, part 4 had tried to end the series before it was too late, but unfortunately it was too profitable to stop; at least they realized how silly the whole thing was becoming so they settled on making a couple of decent black comedies before the whole thing really tanked. Compared to the last few entries in the series, the remake was pretty decent. Not great, but at least it went back to the basics and tried to breathe some life back into a franchise that'd gone from dead to zombie years ago. -- Submitted By: (Maskdt) on January 4, 2010, 11:01 pm

I am more upset that TVGuide threw $10 million in the trash and would love to know who made that call. There must have been some great marketing meeting where somebody in an overpriced suit convinced them that all of the followers would still follow them to the new blog site after they got rid of all of that JTS content. If TVGuide was smart, they would have embraced JTS and its followers and made it better. Really, who reads TV guide anyway and who even knew they had a website? If they embraced JTS, they could have JTS plus a thriving gossip site. Now they have neither. Could they really be concerned that people criticizing their shows on this site is hurting their sales? Are there really people THAT STUPID at TVGuide? Apparently so. -- Submitted By: (DavidSilverlight) on January 4, 2010, 3:05 pm

VH1 - Random Topics
VH-1 sadly, has turned into another banal, trendy network with reality shows and the like. Even their latest "countdown" show: "100 Most Shocking Musical Moments" was ridiculous. They left out moments such as the plane crash of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper, the death of John Bonham, the death of Keith Moon and a number of other great artists who were taken from us too soon, yet mention Chris Brown and Rhianna's fight as "shocking"? Puhleeze. And then, the assassination of John Lennon was only #2? Really?

Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve - TV Shows
Just to be clear. Yes, as long as Dick Clark wants to and the network will have him, he has every right to keep doing the New Year's show. However; that alone doesn't mean I have to keep watching it when there's nothing on it I want to see anymore. However,if Dick Clark regains his moxie and DUMPS Ryan Seacrest, THEN I'll watch it again. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 4, 2010, 7:04 am

Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve - TV Shows
After reading the recent posts, I've come to agree that it would be wrong to ask Dick to step down. I think it's important to remember how easy it is to tell someone else to retire for one reason or another. Yes, it hasn't been the same since his stroke. However, I agree that he should still get to be there if he wants to be there and is able to be there. He's been hosting this for as long or longer then I think a decent percent of the people posting here have been alive. I think that should count for something. If he should decide one year that he's going to step down, I think we should respect that decision. Really though, it's a once a year thing. It's not as though it's daily or even weekly. Given that, the analogy about a Grandfather's 100th birthday is a good one. Yes, it's sad seeing Dick ill. However, if he wasen't there, it just wouldn't be the same. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on January 4, 2010, 12:43 am

Woodstock - Random Topics
I am shocked no one has said anything about Woodstock 99. I can make a whole list of the problems with that concert. First off, they were playing in the middle of July in 108 degree weather with no shade. The food and drinks were way over priced (I believe it was $12 for a slice of pizza and $5 dolllars for a bottle of water? Are you freaking kidding me?). Next up, horrible line up. Why the hell would want to have people like Alanis Morisette, James Brown, Jamiorquai, Sugar Ray and Sheryl Crow be playing on the same stage as bands like Limp Bizkit, Korn, Kid Rock, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rage Against The Machine? It just won't work!. And finally, there weren't enough lavatories for the 200,000 that showed up. So what do you get for a result? Rapes, Fires, fences being broken off, and water pipes being broken off creating mud puddles. Luckily, the promoters learned their lesson and decided not to do Woodstock 2009 after the destruction Woodstock 99 caused. -- Submitted By: (tvfan) on January 2, 2010, 11:34 am

Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve - TV Shows
Agreed with previous commenter. Let Dick Clark continue to appear. I think it's right for him to be there. Why should his appearance be any different than your family getting together for your grandfather's 100th birthday party? Obviously he's not as young and healthy as he used to be, but you are thankful he is aware and happy there. (Not equating with Dick's age, but you get my analogy) And this may be the only show in which I would always want the title to have "Dick Clark" in it, even long after he cannot do the show. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on January 2, 2010, 6:42 am

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition - TV Shows
I agree with the "What makeover?" reason. They're not making over the existing house; they're knocking it down and starting all over. More importantly, though, the new houses are so fancy one wonders how the families can afford the upkeep. When I started seeing stories online about "makeover" families losing their new houses because they were unaffordable (NOT because of questionable financial decisions like putting the new home up as collateral for a loan), that put the show on the "BTF Watchlist" as far as I was concerned. (Definition: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/watchlist) However, the jury is still out on whether this issue makes the show go BTF. I've heard that they're supposed to be dialing back how snazzy the new homes are, and making efforts to make them more sustainable, but I really haven't noticed it on any episodes I've seen recently (which isn't all that many). All the same, the show remains on the watchlist. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on December 31, 2009, 10:49 am

Powerpuff Girls, The - TV Shows
Are people really upset Rainbow the Clown being beaten? If so you really didn't get the show at all. The contrast between the girls' innocent appearance and the joy they take in violence is the central joke of the show. And besides Rainbow the Clown shows up at their birthday party later in the series in perfect health. The episodes did decrease in quality towards the end of the series run but even at the end there were some very worthwhile episodes. Curses, Pee Pee Gees, City of Clipsville, and Mo' Linguish were standouts of the late series. See Me Feel Me Gnomey was an amazing episode. There were of course some major stinkers but the show ended its run before it ever truly jumped the shark or boned the fish. -- Submitted By: (YAYCONFORMITY) on December 30, 2009, 10:22 pm

Rude Customers - Random Topics
I think the problem is two fold. On one hand, without customers, a business will fail. On the other hand, the employees are often poorly paid, under a lot of pressure from management (who in turn are under a lot of pressure from upper management) and understaffed. They say that it can take years to establish a relationship and only seconds to destroy it. It takes little to piss off a customer enough into never coming back. Then again, if a manager sides with a rude customer, it could destroy a relationship and trust with an employee that took years to establish. I think that both sides should take into account that they're both only human. People go to a store expecting that the employees know what they're doing and what's going on. They expect that the store will have the items in stock that they want. I don't think that's unreasonable. However, employees are sometimes poorly informed and honestly might know little more then the customers when it comes to what is and is not in stock. Usually, they'll have little if any control over ordering or over displays, I think that in the end, both customer and employee sometimes forget that the other is a human being just like them. Both sides are there to get something accomplished. Sometimes the objectives and logistics of one side cause conflict with the other side. Yes, sometimes both sides behave in ways that are not acceptable. However, I think that if we put ourselves in the other's position, it might help with how we react when issues come up. -- Submitted By: () on December 30, 2009, 5:41 pm

Rude Customers - Random Topics
How about "rude service" for a theme? The list of shops I don't visit any longer gets longer and longer. And I am really not a custumer, who doesn't understand how hard it can be to work in service. But those people are sometimes downright lazy or simply snobbish! Especially during the time as I was still visiting the university and was wearing mostly jeans and lazy clothes, I could bet that nobody would bother to help me when I went into a clothing shop, even if I was the only customer and three workers were standing around. But as soon as somebody with nice clothes came in, at least two people were jumping around them. The shoe shops are the worst in that regard. I once visited one and bought four pair shoes...but while one young and nice worker took care of me as soon as she came from the back of the shop, the two older one didn't even spare a look at me, but when one older woman came in, they were all jumping around her, even disturbing me while I looked at shoes (the woman only bought one pair of shoes). But concerning being a customer: In my experience, it pays off to be friendly to the service personal. Showing understanding that they are somewhat harassed when they have a lot to do, often resulted in a bigger portion on my plate. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on December 30, 2009, 3:08 pm

Family Feud - TV Shows
Up until 1999, this show was one of my favorite game shows growing up. Richard Dawson and Ray Combs were the best Feud hosts (IMO). Louie Anderson was terrible! Most of the time he mumbled and sounded like he didn't want to be there. Richard Karn was better than Louie was in terms of enthusiasm, but in the end he came off as corny and bland. John O'Hurley is easily the most consistent host of all of the current Feud hosts since its return in 1999. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on December 30, 2009, 11:39 am

Jonny Quest - TV Shows
To whoever said the 1980s version was the revival with Jonny and Hadji as teens? Actually, that happened on the '90s version entitled The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest. The 1980s was basically the same formula as its 1960s version, except that version had a new character named Hardrock, plus that version was the 1st appearance of Jessie as Race Bannon's long lost daughter and the animation on the 1980s version was different than the 1960s and the 1990s versions. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on December 30, 2009, 11:33 am

Match Game - TV Shows
I've never seen the original 1960s version of Match Game entitled "The Match Game" so I won't comment on that version. The 1970s/early '80s versions were great! You had host Gene Rayburn, regulars Brett, Charles, and Richard Dawson (until he left to host Family Feud on a full-time basis in 1978) and a nice bevy of celebrities. The chemistry with the celebrities was like you were watching a party. When the show came back from 1983-84 as one half of "The Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour" it wasn't as fun but it still had Gene Rayburn. When it returned on ABC from 1990-91, there was no Gene Rayburn (since he was deemed "too old" to host by network execs), Ross Shafer hosted in his stead and did a "fair" job with his version. Plus, it was his version that had a reunion between Brett and Charles. When Match Game came back from 1998-99, there was no Brett or Charles and only one celeb from any of the previous versions to appear on this version (case in point, Vicki Lawrence), the host Michael Burger was terrible and most of the celebs were annyoing beyond my ears (Judy Tenuta and her accordion, anyone?) and waaaay too many sexual innuendo and Bill Clinton jokes. Heck you never heard THAT many sexual innuendo jokes on the previous versions like you heard on this horrid 1998-99 version. IMO, MG really died with the 1998-99 version and there hasn't been a revival of MG since then. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on December 30, 2009, 11:10 am

Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman - TV Shows
I freaking love this show. It's very emotinal (aka melodramatic) but if you're not a fairly jaded person...It's very enjoyable. Great characters who make you love them one episode, hate them the next and so on. :) -- Submitted By: (iridescentstephie) on December 29, 2009, 8:27 am

Dawson's Creek - TV Shows
I loved this show...But it was really hard at times to care about a main character (Dawson) who was so self absorbed and selfish. -- Submitted By: (iridescentstephie) on December 29, 2009, 8:20 am

Rude Customers - Random Topics
Nature Boy, lemme correct you. The person who said "The Customer is Always Right" is probably an a-hole customer who thinks that he/she/it is never wrong, regardless in what is going on. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 28, 2009, 11:21 pm

Rude Customers - Random Topics
I'm thinking that whoever came up with the phrase "the customer is always right" has never worked in the service industry! I had toiled for many years in the restaurant business, and I'm going straight to hell for all of the things I had done to rude customer's food. -- Submitted By: (Nature_Boy) on December 28, 2009, 6:35 pm

Parenting - Random Topics
One thing I've been thinking lately about the whole 'the kids of today are spoiled brats' that people tend to say. To be honest, I don't know if I'd say brats but yes, they do tend to be spoiled. However, I think there's something we need to consider. Yes, kids of today and of recent generations are spoiled (in general of course). I could list ways they're spoiled but I'm sure that everyone has their own idea of what spoiled entails so I'll refrain. It's not their fault they're growing up in an era with all this cool stuff. Or more so, it's not their fault if their older relatives didn't. I think we need to remember one important thing. The adults of today have access to all the same things the kids of today have access to. Once you get down to it, adults of today are spoiled as well. Think of the things the adults of today have compared to the things their/your parents had say 30 years ago. Let's face it, I'm sure then when we were the age of the kids of today you think of when you say the kids of today that the adults of back then said similar things about us. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on December 28, 2009, 12:01 pm

Lie to Me - TV Shows
The first couple of episodes were okay. It was interesting to see the premise of "microexpressions", but when they started treating it as "gospel" that really raised my skepticism meter. Then adding Mekhi Phifer to the cast did it for me. Can't stand him as a person or as an actor. -- Submitted By: (showfan) on December 28, 2009, 8:36 am

Glee - TV Shows
I voted "Too gay". I turned it on once and caught a flaming, mincing character bitching at people in a breathy Michael Jackson voice and turned it off immediately. If that's entertainment for somebody, more power to you. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 26, 2009, 11:14 pm

Soap - TV Shows
I don't think it ever really jumped, but it did come darned close that last year. I didn't care for the El Puerco storyline and if it had been renewed for another season they would have definitely had to wrap that one up quickly. -- Submitted By: (BaronCathode) on December 26, 2009, 4:29 pm

View, The - TV Shows
This show is an insult to women. Everyone talks over each other, the show often focuses on really trivial, superficial topics and the liberal/conservative ratio is completely unfair (and I'm a liberal). I think a truly insightful and intelligent round table discussion show for and by women would be great, but this, unfortunately, ain't it. -- Submitted By: (BaronCathode) on December 26, 2009, 4:16 pm
