Shark Week is horseshit * 2
    #13004198 - 08/04/10 11:40 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

This could be a nerd rant, but fuck it, I'mma do it.

I've loved sharks since I was about 4 or 5 years old. Ever since Discovery Channel came up with Shark Week I've been an avid watcher They'd teach you about different kinds of sharks and tell you about rare sharks and behaviors and whatnot.

Shark Week has become a bunch of shit. All they talk about are shark attacks and how crazy Great Whites are. News flash for the fucktard producers: there are other species of sharks than Great Whites that do some really cool shit. Shark Week seems to be geared at scaring the living shit out of people who like the ocean. Fuck that, shark attacks are roughly as common as being struck by lightning.

Now there's nothing about sharks and their behavior as just... sharks doing their own thing, not attacking people. It's just a shitload of "SHARKS ARE GINORMOUS AND WILL FUCKING KILL YOU OR BITE YOUR LIMBS OFF OR MAYBE KILL A BUNCH OF SEALS AND JUMP OUT OF THE WATER!!!"

Has TV really become so shitty that people only care about seeing other people getting destroyed by an animal that generally wants nothing to do with people? Fuck Shark Week, they ruined it.

I want to agree, but yet I don't.
I haven't been watching all of them but when I did they didn't just show attacks.

I saw one episode about their scales are used to prevent bacteria growth (and barnacles on ships), and how hammerheads can detect electrical fields given off by shrimp and things.

Crap like this is what most dumbass viewers watch, which means better ratings. This is why most of the good cable channels have gone downhill.

I haven't watched anything shark related ever since I saw an episode where it was a search for the megalodon (probably wrong spelling, I don't remember), so they captured a shark, attached a camera to it's head, went out to the water to get the signal and see what footage they've gathered, and then they realized they forgot to turn on the camera.... and the episode ended with something like "The search goes on, NEXT TIME! on *whatever the show was called*" :facepalm:....

Sharks have really sharp scales that make them more hydrodynamic. They actually modeled those olympic swim suits after shark skin. True story. 

The scales are similar to their teeth. They are sharp, rub them against the grain and you're gonna get scratched up.

Discovery channel blows anymore. It's all those stupid fishing and logging shows. I thought that channel was supposed to be about conservation and nature education. Not kill the forests and harvest the fish.

I couldn't agree more. Swamp Loggers? What the fuck is that shit? I actually sent them an email about how much that pissed me off. The fuck were they thinking? "wetlands are disappearing in the US at a ridiculous rate. Know what we should do? Pay people who fuck them up and make a TV show about it" Fuckin assbags.

All of these channels that are supposedly "educational" are now about fear mongering and sensationalism.

There's like another 2012 documentary every other day. And they always show that bullshit about Nostradamus.

Fuck Nostradamus.

IMO we're just seeing what happens when the general public becomes accustomed to choosing their entertainment from lists/groups/clouds and the like rather than based on TV programming itself.


With Youtube Hulu uTorrent DVR/Tivo InDemand/OnDemand NetFlix and whatever other shit people subscribe to, tvshows have to catch people who only even turn the tv on to see a specific show, and the only reason they're even on your channel is because their show ended and they're bored and will most likely switch to a movie or a downloaded series if they don't find something within three to seven minutes*



If you wanna learn about sharks, download some documentaries. If you're a fag or something, you could rent them in exchange for money from some subscription-based service. I know it feels cool when something you're interested in is actually on tv, but that's only because tv is so incredibly horrible that you're amazed to find interest in it. That's not something to celebrate or get upset over when you're underwhelmed by it. It's a reason to turn it off and watch what you want.

I pretty much only even own a tv so that I can watch repeats of family guy and king of the hill at night and iCarly and Spongebob during the day.
o0o and Futurama's back too so thats :datass:

Agreed.

I have to say though, and i know that it sounds shallow , that i ABHOR the larger sharks with an intense passion.  You see, i'm a huge pinniped(seals, walri :smirk:, sea lions) lover and hate the animals that kill them.  Polar bears, club wielding humans, orca whales, hate 'em.  There's the ol' "oh, you should respect the order of life" jazz of course, and that's what my thinking processes configure, but i cant help but feel a sense of hatred toward those that chomp down on my beloved blubberous blobs of awesomeness; this is especially the case since shifting from an intp to an infp after getting bit by a vampire a little over a year ago.

C'est la vie.  Fuck sharks and their tv programming!  But um yeah, if i were to watch it, i'd rather a righteous dose of diversity.

more so than you may think; they're comprised of some of the same molecules making up the teeth.

Yeah, it's still pretty cool to see sometimes, but I still predict a total fail in ratings compared to previous years.


TV should just fold already and be offered through internet packages. You should just subscribe to the internet and have a package that includes a router that also has cable/digital outputs for tv.

Shit would rock. You could just have 'channels' with archives of shows

For fuck's sake every one of the so called "news channels" are like 80% opinion and not factual news. How else do fucking nuts like Beck and Olbermann get shows?

And LeBron James got an hour plus long "special" to announce that he was signing with the Heat. WTF

Television is at an all-time low and I doubt it's going to get better any time soon.

I must thoroughly agree with you. They were advertizing the crap out of shark week so I was like cool....

Then I watch it and the only shit I've seen is shows about shark attacks... like 6 different times I've tried watching it and it's all shark attack bullshit.

Fucking bullshit, I want to learn more about how fucking cool sharks are... not listen to people's life-changing stories about having their leg eaten off by a fucking shark.

I'm hoping it will die.

Before I met my girlfriend I completely abolished it from my life. She's used to sleeping with it on, and I was for most of my life (actually, up until about half a year before I met her) so I sympathize and it's worked its way back into my daily routine but I'd still love nothing more than for it to fall into obscurity like Beta-Max and trepanning and shit.

TV was slightly cool for a short period of time in the 90s. Everything cool that comes out now I prefer to watch in hours-long blocks on my computer.
It feels good to be witnessing what I hope is the death of TV :dancer:

Thanks.

And I never watched, but yeah, I have faith in what I heard about this show (this season) in here:lol:. Especially since I know that the History Channel is not good anymore.

This could be a nerd rant, but fuck it, I'mma do it.

I've loved sharks since I was about 4 or 5 years old. Ever since Discovery Channel came up with Shark Week I've been an avid watcher They'd teach you about different kinds of sharks and tell you about rare sharks and behaviors and whatnot.

Shark Week has become a bunch of shit. All they talk about are shark attacks and how crazy Great Whites are. News flash for the fucktard producers: there are other species of sharks than Great Whites that do some really cool shit. Shark Week seems to be geared at scaring the living shit out of people who like the ocean. Fuck that, shark attacks are roughly as common as being struck by lightning.

Now there's nothing about sharks and their behavior as just... sharks doing their own thing, not attacking people. It's just a shitload of "SHARKS ARE GINORMOUS AND WILL FUCKING KILL YOU OR BITE YOUR LIMBS OFF OR MAYBE KILL A BUNCH OF SEALS AND JUMP OUT OF THE WATER!!!"

Has TV really become so shitty that people only care about seeing other people getting destroyed by an animal that generally wants nothing to do with people? Fuck Shark Week, they ruined it.




This is why I don't pay for cable. My childhood is being raped by the Reality Television Effect. At least Shark Week isn't being hosted by Snookie.

Yet.

Yeah it was. It only lived about 9 months, which is average for Caribbean octopus species. She grew a ton, laid eggs and stopped eating, then guarded the eggs till she died. Eggs were never fertilized so they didn't hatch. And before people are all "awww that's so sad!"... That's what all octopus species do. They lay eggs and stop eating while they guard them and eventually die. Sometimes they will eat their tentacles while they are guarding then eggs.

They are putting a bad vibe on sharks.  They show shark attacks and play that damn music.  They make it seem like sharks attack people just to attack people and that so many people die  a year from shark attacks but then on the commercials, they talk about saving the sharks.  Get rid of the fucking dramatic music they play before people are attacked, and have it be a real documentary, not a documentary with dramatic effect. 

I remember watching it when i was a kid and it was awesome.  My girlfriend tried to make me watch it last night and i couldnt do it, it was boring.  They give  a mix message

A couple years back this old guy got eaten by a bull shark right in Tampa Bay, not too far from my house.
He was an older man and he had been fishing earlier that day and was cleaning the fish blood and guts off his equipment - and then jumped in the water off his dock to clean up. Pretty much as soon as he hit the water a fucking bull shark gobbled him up.
I believe his wife was outside and saw it happen.

Pretty crazy shit. Moral of the story: don't clean off fish blood and then jump in that water.

And this fucking monstrosity was caught in St. Petersburg not far from where that happened.


They measured it at 8 feet 10 inches. The men didn't have a scale, but they estimated its weight at 650 to 700 pounds.

Yeah Bull Sharks are no joke. Pound for pound they're more dangerous/aggressive than Great Whites.

But anyways, I was just watching a few minutes of Shark Week. They posed this question..."why are sharks becoming man-eaters? Have they found a taste for human flesh?"...LMFAO!! Newsflash Discovery Channel. Some sharks are big as a motherfucker, and they EAT MEAT.

Do the math.
