Default Shark week sucks.

i just gotta say it.

not that i have any problems with sharks, or don't like seeing them ragdoll a seal or two - i do, i do... but a whole week of sharks every year?

c'mon Discovery drop the gimmic, just stick to the regularly scheduled programming, and smatter in some sharks here and there.

just my opinion.

Unfortunately "regular scheduled programming" for all of the once "educational" channels equals endless reality TV programming.

I've changed my mind, at least a bit. The level of booty on Sharktopus is way above average, both in quantity and quality. If I can just ignore the dialog, this could be good...

Edit: and if I can ignore the specials. I swear they're drawing the creature directly on the film with a crayon. That's right, I said film!

Just for the hell of it I googled "sharktopus" and was directed here.

Holy shit internet.

Some highlights...

Mating Rituals
Are gross....

With the curse and privilege of being half shark and half octopus and pure genius, the sharktopus people had to create a whole slew of crazy shit in order to make life as easy as your mom. Such creations include:

8 legged pants
2 legged pants
Solar energy
The cheetahpult
Suicide
Guitar/Keytar/Bass/Drums/Microphones
Surfing
Icebergs
Proton torpedoes
