You’ve got to love these early days of August. Every year, shark freaks like myself come out in celebration of that annual thing called Shark Week on Discovery Channel. Apparently there’s sweet viewership in sharks, and now, after Discovery’s made it their annual shark pornfest of ‘great whites will kill you at the first chance they get!’, another channel is joining the fun. The channel: National Geographic Channel. Their schtick? SharkFEST.
Kinda early to see where this goes, and/or if NatGeo channel will rise above the shark porn that Shark Week has sadly turned into. I hope they do, though, because I find NatGeo channel to be everything that Discovery Channel used to be – interesting, relevant and engaging. Let’s see where SharkFest goes and if it makes it passed one season. Here’s the teaser.
