    My fav glitch in Sharknado is that half the scenes it was pouring rain, the other half showed the action on sunny days and dry streets.

    The bus rescue was pretty funny, pulling everyone up to the bridge, with water less than 1 foot deep in one scene andno water around the bus in another. Oh, and in the background on the bridge, regular LA traffic going down the streets

    They also preempted all of last Saturdays day movies (runs of old night cheap movies made for SyFy). The theme was supposed to be their Earth collision movies. I recorded all of them Saturday because they are great to watch when plastered.

    Well, I turned one on, and they put on all the Shark movies instead, not even updating the listings! Sharktopus was on! WOW! Another movie just as good as Sharknado

    I wonder if Sharknado has been released worldwide or if just on SyFy.

    $50K is ridiculous? For a has been TV actress for (I presume) a few weeks of work at most?

    OK, now it's in theaters at midnight tonight. I really want to watch this (I'm a cord-cutter), but not for $12.50.

    There are many other options for watching this off the Internet for free if you're so inclined...

    I just read where the third airing of Sharknado increased to 2.1 million viewers. Each showing has had more and more viewers.
    First 1.4 million, then 1.9 million, and finallly 2.1 million. I wonder what the fourth airing later this month will do.

    Yeah, I'm still contemplating that. I will routinely download OTA network shows when the TiVo fails to record, etc., but have until now drawn the line on "paid" content (yes, I realize as a copyright violation there is not a huge difference). Still trying to decide whether I make an exception for this classic. I've already looked for the legit ways (Amazon, Netflix, SyFy website), but no go (at least not yet -- I'm sure when the DVD comes out next month there will be options, but don't know if I want to wait that long).

    I may just watch Piranha (1978), which was just added on Netflix, instead. Who am I kidding? That's just what I'm going to watch while I'm waiting for the torrent to load :)

    The correct way to watch it is to start an hour in.

    This made me laugh out loud.

    I tried explaining the movie to a friend and she just kept looking at me with an odder and odder expression. Finally, I said, "okay it doesn't translate well into "makes sense language".
