Pretty amazing helicopter piloting to go into a tornado and be stable.

I loved the fact that if they shot a shark in the tornado it instantly dropped down like it was flying of it's own accord.

Sharknadoes have different aerodynamics than normal tornadoes, duh.

I liked the fact that one guy winched all 20 something people out of the school bus onto the bridge with absolutely nobody else helping him.

I didn't watch it, but it was weird how supposedly popular this became. (It was mentioned on the NBC Nightly News, which obviously is owned by the same company that owns SyFy..)

But it actually apparently got bad ratings, especially compared to the viral nature of the talk about it.

Maybe they can do a Bond/Shark crossover: Sharktopussy.

Oh, wait. I think that's been done.

I think it's popularity came as it was being aired and after the fact. SyFy will repeat it on Thursday. Maybe the ratings will be better the second time around.

I watched it for about 30 minutes and then promptly deleted it. An absolute stinker. I ended up watching Stand Up Guys on Blu-Ray instead (not a particularly great flick, but it seemed like an Oscar winner after this turkey).

I think SyFy should change the format of their movies and reintroduce Mystery Science Theater 3000, using their own productions as fodder for the robots. The only decent things they've produced in the way of feature length programs is the mini-series' they show in December each year, and even those are waning in quality.

Personally, I'd like to see SyFy start up a new series late at night that showcases old horror and Sci-Fi movies like they used to do on the local TV stations on Saturday nights hosted by Vampira or some other local ghoul. They could bring back Alf or some other character to host it.

Except nobody would watch it or at least not enough people for them to make money off of it.

There would be little overhead involved and certainly wouldn't cost them as much to produce as original feature length movies. Saturday night is pretty much purgatory for any programming except for this type of schlock. I think it would probably attract more viewers than you realize, but hey, I'm no programming expert (then again, neither are most of the network execs ).

The only thing worse than a SyFy original movie is a SyFy original movie with a "2" after the title.

OTOH, this one is supposed to drop sharks on New York. They ought to have a shark wearing a "I Heart NY" tee shirt while he's enjoying some Bronx sushi.

I'm more worried that the sequel won't suck as much!

ABC news mentioned it and they are not related to Syfy

I heard a good amount of talk about this movie before it was on. For some reason, it seems to have blown up. I listen to Howard Stern and he talked about the show everyday and multiple times everyday and he hasn't even seen it. I listen to the How Did This Get Made podcast. It is a podcast where a couple people watch bad movies and then make fun of them. They did like an emergency podcast for this movie.

So, now I'm recording Sharknado tonight so I can catch up.

"How Did This Get Made" is my favorite podcast. I listened to the whole podcast for Sharknado, and now am recording the movie tonight as well.

if you enjoy that format also be sure to check out "Yeah, It's That Bad" - although they aren't quite as professional.

I have not listened to "How Did This Get Made" yet for Sharknado. I kinda figured I'd wait to listen until after I watch the movie.

I made it about 20 minutes before I bailed. Not seeing the love, at all.
And they also had tweets popping up during the show, which I can't stand. Not sure why people have to read what other people think about the show as they are watching it. That is what TCF is for.

I watched half of it earlier today. I didn't find it as awful as I thought. I've tried watching other shows like Megashark vs Giant Octopus and some other one about a giant alligator. I don't think I lasted 30 minutes on those.

No sound on my recording, so I'm out unless they reshow it.

And what are the odds of that?
