Jumping The Shark

Recommended Posts

When the Brady Bunch introduced us to Cousin Oliver. They thought the brady kids had lost their cuteness and thought another young kid would bring back the magic. it failed

 

When Battlestar Galactica (1978)decided season 2 would be with the Galactica finding Earth and much of the story's would take place on Earth. Galactica 1980 was born and forgotten pretty quick. Not even the last eposide Return Of Starbuck could save it.

Angel - season five moving from the hotel and joining forces with Wolfram and Hart.

 

Prison Break - Breaking them out of prison. It was still a good show but it just wasnt as interesting anymore.

 

Lost - whatever episode that was about two characters that no one even knew. Actually most of season 3 jumped the shark.

 

Twin Peaks - solving the murder in season two and the pine weasel storyline. Hell most of season jumped the shark.

The first show that comes to mind is The Simpsons. If it hadn't already, it surely did when Homer became a grunge rocker. That episode was a disgrace.

I think the problems with The Simpsons started when in later years they started presenting Homer as a complete moron, compared to originally being an "average bloke".

How about the X-Files. when did it go beyond the point on no return?

 

 

When Duchovny left and they replaced him with the T-1000. :D

That episode was awesome!! It skewered absolutely everything that was wrong with the 1990s in under 30 minutes.

How'bout "Diff'rent Strokes," when Arnold started getting too old to do "cute kid" stuff anymore, Mr. Drummond got married and her son "Sam" became Arnold's new half brother and the new "cute kid"

 

... and of course, "Sam" aka Danny Cooksey grew up to be the lead singer for Bad 4 Good.

Danny was also on the Nickelodeon show Salute Your Shorts.

 

He could f'ng sing. Bad 4 Good might of looked like cute little kids but they cold really play and had some great tunes.

Speaking of XFiles above the true Shark Jumping happened after the Lone Gunmen series was cancelled and XFiles had them on for one last episode and they all three died. Very sad to see those guys go.

the lone gunmen------------you know, I liked that show

...if memory serves, the X-Files episode where they were killed off was even titled "Jumping the Shark."

 

...and hey, you remember what the first episode of the Lone Gunmen series was about? They had to stop an airliner from crashing into the World Trade Center. F*cking creepy in retrospect since it aired six months prior to 9/11.

Other "Shark Jumpings" ...

 

...when Jean Stapleton left "All in the Family," so they killed her off and the show became "Archie Bunker's Place" (though hey, the episode where Archie mourned Edith's death was a tear jerker of the highest order)

 

...when the "Facts of Life" girls graduated from the Academy and all went into the catering business with Mrs. Garrett.

 

..."Mork and Mindy" when Mork has a baby ("Mirth"), played by Jonathan Winters.

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
