I Missed the Biggest Event of the Week
You guys, I didn’t even know about Sharknado until suddenly everyone on the entire Internet today was talking about Sharknado.
It premiered on SyFy last night and apparently it’s the greatest bad movie ever made: Tornados full of sharks hit the California coast, destroying everything in their path. It stars a decently plastic surgeried Tara Reid and old school 90210 cad/Chippendale dancer Ian Ziering, who can’t just sit back and watch as sharks crash through the windows of his beach bar and totally compromise the sterility of his ice bins.
According to the LA Times, Sharknado ‘keeps TV real.’ I’m guessing that’s sarcasm? Last I checked there is no real chance that a shark could fling itself from the whirligig twirl of a tornado and single-jawedly take down a helicopter. Of course, I’m no expert, though I do wish they’d make a Connecticut version, wherein a hurricane filled with man-eating quahogs destroys the tall ships at Mystic Seaport. Maybe there’ll be a sequel.
Should I watch this if I get a chance? Should the world?
