EDP21 – When shows Jump The Shark! w/ @HowardTheDeck

August 9, 2012

When did your favorite show go bad?
What was the point that you decided that the show was no longer watchable?
THAT is the Jump the Shark Moment!

Today on the eclectik discussion podcast we discuss those points and main culprits responsible of making the shows we love suck

This week’s guest … RETURNING Guest Howie Decker (@HowardTheDeck) From UnderscoopFire.com and The UnderscoopFire Podcast

Together we cover:

Shows that Jumped then jumped back to good
Worst case of new character joining the show
Worst case of pregnancy/ new baby ruining a show
Worst case of main characters hooking up running a show
Bad “Special Episodes”

There are a ton of jump the shark moments and we will get through as many as we can between
Almost Rape, a on-air Stroke, and Celery arms

The Fifth is also represented with a special Tag match and some peanut oil

    Am I allowed to comment on this ep? Because it was a sparkling job of editing as usual. You even made that guest sound good!

    • eclectik

      I hope you do/would … they entertain me and make the editing feel worth it

    Respectfully disagree on Good Morning Miss Bliss aka “SBTB: The Pilot Season.” Can’t really hold the fact that it was revamped against it, though those dream theories you mentioned sound like a lot of fun; gonna have to look into that. For me, SBTB jumped the shark when the Zack Attack! shit started. A close second would be when Tori joined the cast.

      Tori WAS awful and yeah the Zach Atttack we cannot unsee or unhear LOL I appreciate the comment and thank you for listening!

    Jump the shark! Let me say this about Sam McKinney…
    He is THE MOST HATED new character on any TV sitcom in history, bar none! More hated than cousin Oliver on The Brady Bunch.

    May the EDP show never jump the shark (until I’m a guest on it, in which case pretend that episode never existed).
