For those of you who aren't familiar with the term, "Jumped the Shark," it's a colloquialism used to "denote that point in a TV show or movie series' history where the plot veers off into absurd story lines or out-of-the-ordinary characterizations, particularly for a show with falling ratings apparently becoming more desperate to draw viewers in." ( Wikipedia ) Some shows that are considered to have "jumped the shark," are listed below, not including those already listed and getting some great discussions going on our list of top 10 shows that have jumped the shark: Top 10 Shows that "Jumped the Shark," Part 1 Top 10 Shows that "Jumped the Shark," Part 2 So when, if at all, do you think the following shows jumped the shark? At what particular point or with what completely ridiculous plotline did these shows take the leap into absurdity?

I would like tro pose a new question to the group. lol. This is another "Anyone else besides me..." question. And it is also a two-part one. Firstly, during season 5 episode Chinga, (the one co-written by Stephen King) does anyone ele besides me think that the cast and crew SO turned it up and did the Hokey Pokey between takes? And secondly, was it just me, or did anyone eles want to pause that episode and get up and do the Hokey Pokey themselves? Well, for those keeping track (which is no-one), this is number 1 stupid comment of the day. So, until number 2...
Hey I was watching season four episode Zero Sum, when Cancer Man put out a cigarette (as he often does). And I had this crazy notion. Ha Ha. In my head I was just like... "I wonder if there is anyone else out there, besides me, who feels like they're getting lung cancer themselves just from watching him." lol. I know its not really funny in a haha light and airy sort of way. But more chuckles in the this-is-halfway-depressing-and-yet-halfway-true sort of way. well I am done rambling. I just thought I would share my random musings.
There's a wikipedia entry for 56.com that explains the issues they were having earlier this summer, but the good news is that it's back now! Yay. So, I'm hoping the GOOD links come back now too.
I've been trying to open the link but whenever i click on the link or "Add to favorite" button, nothing happens or appears... Normally,it supposes to be direct to the video clip links but it doesn't .. I'd be appreciated, if anyone can help me out..
The only decent links to the episodes of season 2 i need to watch next seem to be to 56.com which worked until last week - does anyone know why the server is suddenly unavailable???
I've just started noticing some of the reliable links we love so much (56.com, rephh, etc etc etc) are not loading anymore. If you notice a site not working please post a comment here & I'll try finding a replacement. So far Youku (personally I think sux) is still working, slow loading, but working. I believe Toudu is as well.
Where the hell has that gone? lol.
