Do You Watch Shark Week on the Discovery Channel?

Today the Discovery Channel kicks off its 20th annual Shark Week bright and early at 9:00 AM with "Paradise for Predators: Sharks of Palau." As far as shark programs go, this sounds like one I could handle: "Journey to Palau and meet the people and their deep connection to sharks. Members of a local shark clan help shed light on why certain villages believe the sharks are gods. Have sharks and humans learned to accept each other over the centuries?"

That sounds like relatively safe fun, as opposed to, say, "Anatomy of a Shark Bite." I get squeamish with some of this stuff, but I can also understand the thrill of exploring such fascinating and famously dangerous animals. How about you? Do you make like "30 Rock"'s Tracey Jordan advised Kenneth to do and "live every week like it's Shark Week"?

I love me some Shark week! Sunday was the best. I got up and Shark week had started:) I actually sat in front of the TV all day and watched everything that came on. The premiere episode was really interesting I had never heard about that attack and last night with the Tiger sharks those guys are serious they will eat anything! Woot Woot for Shark Week!

So Shark Week shows every year? I didn't know. I did saw an episode today about shark experts demonstrating what it would look like if a shark bit you while it was swimming towards 60-80 mph and demonstrating how a shark bit off (and the impact) a man's leg underwater. Hmm... I'm not really sure if that episode aired on Discovery but it was very interesting.

I am interested in the first show, the worst shark attack in history. Otherwise, I haven't heard much about this particular Shark Week.

Shark Week used to coincide with when I went to the beach for vacation, so out of habit I still don't watch it.
