    Default Sharknado

    So Scifi channel is premiering this -- tomorrow night?

    It's a movie. About sharks. And tornadoes. Specifically, about a tornado made of sharks.

    It certainly looks awesome.

    Respectfully,

    It is not the science fiction channel. Syfy is catchy, similar to past labels and protectable, but specifically allows them to not always use science fiction. They need the money only shoddy science can bring.

    I don't know about you, but I'm recording this. If nothin else, it's an evil dead style campaign waiting to happen.

    This is immensly hilarious - especially the guy slashing falling sharks with a chainsaw.

    Quite honestly, if the special effects match the botched premise and utterly insane script, then we are about to witness a birth of a great B-movie classic.

    I wish I had this chanell available.

    What the pony said. I am looking forward to a well researched scientific analysis of the survivability of sharks in violent meteorological phenomena.

    Anyone familiar with Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes? Old strip now? Anyways, this looks like something Calvin come up with in a hallucinogenic state after ODing on chocolate frosted sugar bombs. Like the Tyrannosaurs in F-14s .

    Say wht you will about the kid, but his vocabulary was astounding. I always pegged Calvin more on the genius side of spastic genius.

    I believe it was mentioned in SyFy's anniversary special that they actually have an internal competition to come up with the dumbest idea they think they can actually film.
    • Sometimes, the knights are the monsters
    • The main problem with the world? So many grownups, not enough adults.
    • Talk less; say more.
    • George R.R. Martin, Kirkman, and Joss Whedon walked into a bar. There were no survivors.
    • Current Project: Fallout 4 "nerd" build (3/7/2/2/9/3/2, PER 9 after boosts)

    Did I really just hear them say that they're going to stop the tornado by blowing it up with bombs inside of it? Oh my god....

    That movie was GREAT! A gigantic hurricane, plus three tornados, all dropping as much shark as water. Every single time a wave goes over anything, anywhere, it has a dozen big sharks in it. And they all want to eat people! Even while flying through the air, or flopping on land... one actually plops down right onto the roof of a moving car and eats half the car roof trying to get to the juicy center.
    I want to get a job with that channel.

    Has anyone stated this yet? Perhapes for Pathfinder? Because I don't think that there would be a better way to show that a deity hates you than to throw a tornado filled with sharks at you.

    Nah, Dysjunction is proof wizards hate 'jocks' and wanted to take away other peoples' nice things. The side effects i Dysjunction on casters when applied to artifacts is proof the gods hate all PCs.

    No, A tornado made of acid filled with acid-breathing sharks. THAT's when you know you're hated beyond all conceivable measure.
