We're gonna need a bigger boat...
It's summer, which can only mean one thing: Shark Week is coming! The television event put on by the Discovery Channel has become something of a phenomenon over the last few years, thanks in part to Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly's hit comedy Step Brothers. This year's big event starts next Sunday, July 5th, with a lineup of episodes all week long meant to bring out your shark enthusiast. We're particularly looking forward to "Bride of Jaws" this year.
We're getting in the mood for Shark Week this weekend by watching a cinema classic, Jaws. The Steven Spielberg franchise helped trigger the American public's intense interest in the ocean predator, and has had children looking for an ominous fin peaking out of the water at the beach for the last 40 years. The computer graphics may not be nearly as realistic as what's used in today's films, but the Great White villain of the film is still capable of giving us the chills.
Get out there and enjoy your weekend, and remember, live every week like it's Shark Week!
