"Break Yourself, Hookah!"
I love sharks, so it is only natural that I am one of the many people who geek out for Discovery Channel's summer tradition Shark Week! Beginning tonight at 9pm, the DC will bring us at least five new pieces of programming for the shark-obsessed people of the world like myself.
Shark Week kicks off with Ultimate Air Jaws, a follow-up to Air Jaws and Air Jaws II. I wish they had a channel that showed Air Jaws-like clips all day: great whites soaring up from under their prey and snatching them in their powerful jaws while flying up in the air. Ultimate bad ass!
The rest of the week includes shows like:
- Shark Bites: Adventures in Shark Week (Wed. Aug 4th @ 10PM) with late night talk show host Colin Fergusson getting in over his head with the ocean's most dangerous creatures.
- Day of the Shark 3 (Mon. Aug. 2th @10PM) continues the series with more testimonials from shark attack survivors as they tell their chilling stories.
- Shark Attack Survival Guide (Mon. Aug. 2th @9PM) deals with Special Forces badass Terry Schappert and his instructions on how to survive against shark attacks...which does not include my defense of flat out pissing myself.
- Shark Bite Beach (Tues. Aug. 3th @9PM) with more dramatic recreation of shark attacks.
So if you have a craving for sharks, sharks and more sharks, this is the week you have been waiting for all year. Tune in tonight at 7pm with an airing of ETMC hall-of-fame inductee JAWS (1975) for some shark fantasy before the shak reality.
If you crave even more razor-toothed eating madness, then head over to the official Shark Week website for virtual shark dives, shark videos, games, pictures and more.
Happy Shark Week Everyone and thanks to the Discovery Channel for successfully doing this year after year!!
