    Great show Jamie. Truly enjoyable.

    Jump the shark:

    “The phrase jump the shark refers to the climactic scene in
    “Hollywood,” a three-part episode opening the fifth season of
    the American TV series Happy Days in September 1977. In this
    story, the series’ central characters visit Los Angeles, where
    Fonzie (Henry Winkler), wearing swim trunks and his trademark
    leather jacket, jumps over a confined shark on water skis,
    answering a challenge to demonstrate his bravery. The series
    continued for nearly seven years after that, with a number of
    changes in cast and situations.

    The expression was coined in 1985, the year after Happy Days
    was ended, by Sean J. Connolly during a conversation with
    friend Jon Hein who would later create the web site Hein explained the concept as follows: “It’s
    a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite
    television program has reached its peak. That instant that you
    know from now on…it’s all downhill. Some call it the climax.
    We call it ‘Jumping the Shark.’ From that moment on, the
    program will simply never be the same.”[1] Hein created the
    web site in 1997 inviting visitors to give their opinions of
    when various TV series (and other things) “jumped the shark.”
    Hein sold the web site and the domain name to Gemstar
    (publishers of TV Guide) in 2006, and in early 2009 the domain
    was redirected to the main TV Guide web site as part of the
    dissolution of various TV Guide properties (TV Guide magazine
    is now owned by a private equity group, while the associated
    cable network and websites went to Lionsgate). This move was
    considered by fans as the website jumping the shark due to
    severely reduced content.”
