Are you familiar with the phrase “jumped the shark” or “jumping the shark”? If not, take a few minutes now to watch the youtube clip to see where it originated.
That original television moment occurred in 1977, and during the mid-1980s the term was coined to refer to something that is believed to be past its peak in quality or relevance on TV.
