I went swimming three times yesterday in Cape Cod Bay, I didn't see any sharks. I guess nobody told them it was shark week.

I wanted to believe, but it absolutely looked fake and well apparently it was.

That magaldon "documentary" was just a bunch of crap. I can't believe Discovery would spend money on that crap! Shark after dark was also stupid! If this is going to be Shark week then Im turning this crap off!

Probably the same old worn old tape. S. Africans, Australians, beach bums, surfers and other nut jobs asking to get bitten after fucking around with wild animals.

I guess you missed the disclaimer which stated that it was a work of fiction. They flashed it through at the end (in effect, hiding it from those that weren't looking for it).

Besides, have those guys ever seen a real chum slick before? That part had me rolling on the floor. Those DC bozos didn't even seem to know that any blood or offal from either fish or mammals would flatten the waves down tide from that boat (not color it red). What part of the term "chum slick" did they not get?

Scientifically accurate? This was as bad in that regard as your typical Syfy channel trash flick.

I only watched about half before going to bed. I recorded the rest. Not sure if i'm going to watch it. I am very disappointing in the Discovery Channel. I thought better of them.

The one video from the rescue helicopter looking down at the guy struggling to get into the basket.......and this 60' shark goes ambling by was pretty impressive...

The picture of the whale on the beach meant nothing. A handful of shark could have chewed that tail off.

And the old photo of the two U-boats with the fins in the background was hard to tell it was one fish...

As a marine scientist i was extremely frustrated. Why because for the amount of people that know it was fake there are 5 times as many that believe it. The one they had on mermaids drove me insane because of the amount of people i had question me about it.......uhg

I couldnt let my kids watch any more. They were getting confused between fiction and reality.
