Scifridays: “Shark Attack” (1999)

Baddie: Cancer! Lesson: Sharks are friends, not science experiments. It’s the most wonderful timeeeee of the year. AKA Shark Week, Discovery Channel’s increasingly-full-of-crap week about sharks. What started as a week of education and interesting info has become somewhat of a low-budget schlock fest with some shark facts thrown in. I’m hoping we don’t have to suffer…
