Moved To California

Everyone knows the phrase, jumped the shark, right?

Well, I have thought of an alternative to this phrase, and it is also from a 1970's sitcom produced by Garry Marshall, Laverne & Shirley.

Now, the majority of visitors at agree that the show really started sucking when they moved Laverne, Shirley and the gang from Milwaukee to California.

Then, I thought. How about this as an alternative phrase to "jumped the shark" -- "moved to California".

Here's a sample of an exchange using this alternative catchphrase:

Person 1: Boy, E.R. really moved to California when they killed off Anthony Edwards.

Person 2: What do you mean? I think they have always shot E.R. in California, with only the occasional exteriors shot in Chicago.

Person 1: No, no, that's not what I mean.

I just hope moved to California doesn't move to California.

What will we have left then? What?

You'd have to rid your motorcycle off a big ramp into the Pacific Ocean, hoping to jump safely over any sharks that might be in the vicinity.
