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.

Starbucks Coffee - Random Topics
I always prefer my coffee without that soggy paper taste so I always seek out local coffeehouses that serve it in MUGS. Also, paper gives me the impression that they can't wait to run me out of their store so they can serve the next person. Yeah, I know a century in a landfill for paper vs. millenia in an archaeology site for ceramic shards but paper doesn't cut it with me! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 20, 2009, 11:29 am

Super Friends - TV Shows
The villains made this show- the LEGION OF DOOM was classic. Who didnt want to sign up for that supergroup of Grod, Luther, Sinestro etc.? The best part was when they put the superfriends on trial for upholding the law- classic cartoon television in every frame. Once they were worked off the show, it boned, but recovered slightly when the Kirby era "Apokolips" villain Darkseid became the primary antagonist in the mid 80's, but by then it was being used more to launch new toys as opposed to the LEGION OF DOOM era. And you can take the sidekick characters and have Green Lantern send them into the vacuum of space- yes Wondertwins, Gleek, Wonderdog, Wendy and Marvin- I mean all of you. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 20, 2009, 9:56 am

Mask, The - Movie Series
This was an off beat title from Dark Horse Comics, that in my humble opinion, should NEVER have been made into any sort of film. It was just a mid 90's bad CGI/ Jim Carrey is funny- "lets laugh at him because he talks loud and makes wierd face" - vehicle to sell tickets. It's just really bad, then the really odd part, they made a "Dancing baby" sequel- Son of the Mask. It begs the question- Why? Boned the Fish on Day One!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 20, 2009, 4:55 am

Karate Kid, The - Movie Series
Correction to something I said earlier: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are NOT in the new Thundercats movie as of this writing, was told this by a friend and I didn't check it out properly. Back to the topic: the series most definitely jumped after II: after fighting an old school ninja death match, High School competitions for points just doesn't up the ante enough to make it worth making a sequel. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 20, 2009, 12:13 am

Oh God, this show is painful to watch...sub-tween aged 'humor' combined with the worst acting I've seen in ages. I want to vomit every time I scan by it.

The Super Bowl is an annual chore to watch. It is considered un-American if you don't watch it but it is so boring. There are too many commercial breaks and while the commercials are funny,t hey too suck after halftime.

Saturday Morning Cartoons - Random Topics
Ah, it was great being a kid in the 70's and having almost nonstop Looney Toons with some odd Sid and Marty Krofft shows to watch on Saturday mornings! There would also be 'Schoolhouse Rock' and 'In the News' to entertain and inform us between cartoons. When it would get to 'Make a Wish', that was the sign it was time to get out of pyjamas and have some lunch! Nowadays, it's just as well I often work Saturdays! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 18, 2009, 10:29 am

Charlie Brown Specials - TV Shows
They NEVER boned as far as I'm concerned! The Christmas one's my absolute fave (and favorite Christmas cartoon of ALL time). It went a LOT deeper than so many have before/since and it was interesting to me that all these snotty kids would actually feel sorry for Charlie Brown and make his pathetic tree a REAL tree with their decorations but telling, that as soon as the Christmas glow was gone, they'd go right back to being snotty! Also, I liked a great deal the 'What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown' one. Rarely shown since its debut, this was about him and the gang going to France and Linus considering what the soldiers experienced during D-DAY. They actually used REAL footage alongside the cartoon to consider this. Shulz really hit that one of the ballpark with that one being a WWII vet himself! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 18, 2009, 10:24 am

Macy's - Random Topics
Macy's "Boned the Fish" - no, no, wait...Macy's "Entered the Neighborhood" in 2006 when became a 100% national chain as opposed to being heavily concentrated in select markets only (Texas, Bay Area, New York, etc.) In the past, Macy's was a lot like a Neiman's in terms of style and atmospherics - when you went in, you could have sworn you were in New York City! Now, with the demise of local chains (such as Foley's and Marshall Field's, both of which had Texas stores), I thought Macy's would bring their fashion to every street corner in America (ala Nordstrom)! Nope, they've pretty much become one rung above JCPenney now! This is a huge blow to long-time Macy's fans (My first Macy's visit was over in that lone Dallas store in early 1995; I loved going there, but don't worry, it's still nice inside) as well as historic department store fans (Chicagoans are still mad at the demise of Field's, you know, and I remember the Dallas store, too!) It's time we start a new phrase: "Enter the Neighborhood", where a business reaches its peak and gets really bad (ala JTS)! It's a play on the phrase "There goes the neighborhood", and it refers to the store's downward spiral after this event! Peace. -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 18, 2009, 9:12 am

Geico Commercials - Random Topics
I first heard of Geico in a mail advertisement, circa 1996. I found a little form that compares the insurance you have now versus that of Geico, plus price comparisons, and how much you can save. I first found their commercials on a local station in early 1998, back when it was "Geico is better than ACME Insurance". From there, the commercials got funny and clever, and suddenly, I became a big Geico fan! Now we have the Gecko, the Caveman, and Kash (with the big "googly" eyes)! 11 years later, I'm still enjoying these ads! I wish Geico made a DVD of every commercial ever made! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 18, 2009, 9:03 am

Charlie Brown Specials - TV Shows
No matter how old you are, the Charlie Brown shows always seem to stick with you! I like the "Great Pumpkin" and "Christmas" ones! I could kind of say that the specials jumped (or boned) because of the network change (CBS to ABC, probably because the former shows "Frosty" and "Rudolph" every season), but my family and I enjoy the shows very much! I also remembered a regular Charlie Brown series on the old Disney Channel (circa mid-90s)! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 17, 2009, 9:23 pm

I miss the McDonaldland gang. Grimace, Early Bird, Happy Meal Guys, and of course Hamburglar. They rarely even use Ronald any more. Now all their ads are trying to be "hip-hop" and "street".

No, James Bond never nuked the fridge (or boned the fish). EVER! This is excellent! Even if the movies are nothing to write home about, I still had fun watching them! My favorite Bond film is "A View to a Kill"! An exploding blimp (which was quite funny), a villain with a weird name (also funny), and Duran Duran - all excellent! The latest, "Quantum of Solace" had a quick Bond girl scene, but it's the best and funniest! (Hint: Bond and his lady check into a hotel.) -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 17, 2009, 8:55 pm

Disney - Random Topics
I love Disney, but sadly, they boned the fish in late May/early June 2002 with the premieres of the TV show "Kim Possible" and the movie "Lilo and Stitch". The company just became too teenage from that point on; basically, Disney is now a "Touchstone Jr." Most of their shows, cartoons, and movies are aimed towards teenagers and adults now! (And that's just the "Walt Disney" banner!) Fortunately, Disney has released 99.9% of the "Golden Age of Disney" ("Steamboat Willie" to "The Rookie") on DVD, but sadly, only three of these titles ("The Rookie", "Sleeping Beauty", and "Pinocchio") are on Blu-ray now! C'mon Disney, bring back your old self and please release more of your old titles on Blu-ray! Peace. -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 17, 2009, 8:18 pm

Star Trek: Voyager - TV Shows
Where do I start? Rather than tell you off the bat where I think this show jumped, let me describe the situation for you, and you tell me: You are the member of a starship crew, sent on a mission that is perilous, but not beyond your crew or ship's capabilities. You expect to go retrieve 1 man from a small ship, and be back in time for dinner. 3 days later, you're 70,000 light years from home, a lifetime away from the nearest starbase, on a broken ship with over half the crew dead, and no choice but to team up with your mortal enemies who want to kill you and bleach your bones to use for hair combs the first chance they get. You are in this situation because the Captain, rather than fulfilling her solemn oath to safeguard the well being of her crew and ship, or at least giving everyone a choice as to whether they wanted to go on a suicide mission, decided to meddle in an intergalactic affair, and drag the whole crew down with her. Now you're stranded, on the other side of the galaxy, and to get home you have to make your way through parsecs and parsecs of races that range from merely ornery, well armed, vicious, and hateful, to so malevolent and nigh omnipotent that they could steamroll the entire Federation and the Alpha Quadrant in about a week. If they stop for tea time. Being faced with this situation, would you A) put a phaser in your mouth and pull the trigger? B) Shit yourself, and then A? C) Cautiously try to get back home as quickly as possible, adhering to Federation guidelines as the situation permits, but adapting to the fact that Federation guidelines were developed for ships in a fleet backed up by a nearby Federation of Planets, not one ship in hostile territory on the other side of the galaxy? D) Throw the captain out of a photon torpedo port, and then C? E) Go headlong into the situation, explore out of the way every chance you get, and happily announce to every big bad who would kill the men, rape the women, and eat the children that you're here, from the Federation, and you have no backup? When you understand that the entire premise of the show was E, you'll see why people thought that this show was garbage. Science aside, I have always liked the ST universe, more so than the Star Wars or Babylon 5 universe (not saying that those aren't good as well). I like that there is an effort at least to acknowledge that people try to do better in the ST universe, as opposed to other fictional universes, that are just as crapsack as our current reality, and no one tries to have any higher standards than your common 21th century thug. I think that sometimes ST may be a somewhat too unrealistic and optimistic, but I think that the heart of the franchise was in the right place. However Voyager took it to levels of ridiculousness heretofore unknown to the franchise. Being more trusting, tolerant, and respectful of your fellow man is one thing. Being a blind fool who walks into danger and ignores their surroundings is another, and the crew of Voyager did this so many times as to be nauseating. The episode "The Void" was the worst example of this. The only reason that episode (like so many other episodes in that series) worked out was because the writers intervened and made some technobabble that got everyone worth saving saved. In real life, piracy would have probably been the only real option, and even if an alliance were formed, it would probably require everyone in the alliance picking 1 ship, and concentrating all of their resources on it, as if there isn't enough fuel for 1 ship, sharing the fuel I don't have with another ship that doesn't have enough doesn't help either of us. This is just one of hundreds of examples where people act out of character, people do things that no real person would do, arcane methods are used to achieve goals that logically could be done easier with technology that we have today, etc etc. The sad thing about this is, for the first 6 or so episodes, the series shows some promise, and there is some serious tension amongst the crew members, and some serious questions as to whether everyone is going to make it back home alive or not. However this changes so fast, that it's almost a Day 1 Filleting. Boned the fish on day 1. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 15, 2009, 9:41 pm

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
When Frank Grimes died. There are so many reasons why the Simpsons boned. I won't talk about all of them here. However, when Frank Grimes died, that was it for me. Before then, the big draw of the Simpsons for me was that I could kind of relate to the characters, and root for them. They weren't perfect, and they had flaws, but they were mostly natural flaws that many well meaning people have in real life. The Frank Grimes episode threw all of that out the window. The Simpson family went from being well intended if not misguided and all too human, to being out and out criminally malfesant monsters. Most of the laughs I got from the Simpsons, I got because I could say that that could be me or someone I know all to easily. It was funny cause it was true. However in the Frank Grimes episode, a boundary got crossed. I couldn't see myself in Homer's situation, couldn't see the humor in it at all. One would have to WORK to be that stupid, to the point where I couldn't laugh about it because it probably was true, rather I was disgusted at how cruel and out of character Homer and the Simpsons were. Have there been more fillets in the series? Most definitely, but for me, this is when I quit watching. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 15, 2009, 8:59 pm

Dragon Ball - TV Shows
Boned from Day 1. Dragon Ball (and the entire Dragon Ball series) takes what good anime does best and shits all over it: namely telling a good story without western restrictions, and bringing it to an end. Dragon Ball does none of that. Make no mistake, there IS a story in there somewhere, however you're going to have to sit through 250+ episodes, around 225 of which are nothing but still frames, recaps, strobe screens, and speed lines, to find it, and when you do, it isn't really worth it. Once upon a time on a website similar to this that I don't care to mention, I had a spark of divine inspiration, and I wrote out all the reasons that I thought Dragon Ball sucked in a composition that I personally thought was a literary masterpiece. =p Of course this was when the series was still on Cartoon Network. At this point I just do not care, and the series is so bad for so many reasons, that it just isn't worth watching, even for critique purposes, period. A large book could be written about how bad Dragon Ball is. Many people hear anime fans complain about how bad Dragon Ball is, and they probably wonder "can it be that bad." Yes, it is. The basic plot of Dragon Ball is this: protagonist is seeking special item. Protagonist and his friends go to find special item. Protagonist gets in a fight with someone also looking for special item. This fight lasts anywhere from around 10-15 episodes on average (or 220 to 330 minutes, far longer than most motion pictures). Protagonist either wins, or is stalemated somehow to where they are ineffectual, but not out of the story. Then said protagonist decides to learn a new technique to further their quest. Cue another 220 minutes of learning the technique that doesn't really add anything to the story. Then protagonist goes back on the road to find said item. Another fight ensues, another 10-15 episode "story arc" begins. Depending on how much suspense the "creator" of this garbage wants to build up, they may do this several times before the menace is finally defeated. All in all, the heroes may only travel 6 blocks to get to their goal, and the in show time might be 10 minutes, but probably something like a twelve hundred minutes might be animated just to get to that point, and maybe 2 hours of that might be actual plot movement. The worst part about this is that this show inspired a whole load of bad manga derived shows that are composed of nothing but plot filler. One Piece, Shaman King, InuYasha, Detective Conan, shows where absolutely nothing interesting happens from episode 2 to episode 354, and you can literally tune out several hundred episodes, tune back in, and so long as you understand that so and so's super attack power level has a couple more zeros behind it now, you won't have missed anything. Bottom line, this show and series is garbage. -- Submitted By: (castaghast) on April 15, 2009, 8:49 pm

Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies - Movie Series
The cartoons are great, but the series jumped once the higher ups decided to go PC and open one of their DVDs with Whoopi Goldberg warning about how "racial caricatures" are wrong . Some things aren't about race, and even if these cartoons were racist (very unlikely) in today's multicultural society people are far less likely to see race in something as simple as a cartoon. (Save for the Jesse Jackson crowd.) -- Submitted By: (gpshaw) on April 15, 2009, 8:47 pm

Jurassic Park - Movie Series
First, please spare us the 4th movie, have some respect for Circhton's memory. The 2nd movie was certainly the dropping off point for the movie, they took a fair (not as good as the original of course) book and turned into environmentalist propaganda. -- Submitted By: (gpshaw) on April 15, 2009, 8:42 pm

Austin Powers - Movie Series
The first film had a few funny phrases and scenes, and then as more came out- you just realized how un-funny Mike Myers actually was, one joke, rinse and repeat, and then be told it is funny again and again. Once the "Love Guru" came out, I think Austin Powers #1 looked even more like a complete fluke that it was tolerable. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 15, 2009, 8:39 pm

American Dad! - TV Shows
Perhaps my politics prevents me from being objective but I just don't think an(nother) entire series dedicated to bashing middle America and family values is necessary. I'll never understand of McFarlen became so popular... well I have a few theories but they don't fit in with the context of this site. -- Submitted By: (gpshaw) on April 15, 2009, 8:37 pm
