Judge David Johnson recreated a real-life shark attack using a cheeseburger and his mouth.
Our reviews of Shark Week: Ocean Of Fear (published August 28th, 2008), Shark Week: The Great Bites Collection (published July 24th, 2009), and Shark Week: The Great Bites Collection (Blu-Ray) (published July 24th, 2009) are also available.
"Compliments of Sharkie."
I think we can officially classify Discovery's Shark Week a pop culture phenomenon. And why shouldn't it be? It's a great examination of the sound and the fury of nature's premiere killing machine. Producers decide to cowboy up with Shark Week: Restless Fury, adding to the already established excellence of crazy guys swimming with sharks in nothing but a wetsuit and disturbingly intimate camera angles.
This go-round you've got those same crazy wetsuit guys swimming around with the sharks and also feeding a video camera to a Great White! I suppose there's some scientific purpose of having a POV shot from a shark's jawline, but mainly it just looks super awesome with all that teeth and stuff.
Six episodes over two discs:
• "Ultimate Air Jaws"
• "Day of the Shark III"
• "Shark Attack Survival Guide"
• "Sharkbite Beach"
Good stuff, and another tasty treat for fans of sharks. Which, of course, should be everyone with a DVD player. The details: full frame, 5.1 Dolby Digital surround and two full-length bonus programs, "Are They Hunting Us?" and "Man vs. Fish: Tiger Shark."
Not Guilty. Nom nom nom nom.
