Megalodon!

Anyone else catch this "mockumentary" that aired during "Shark Week" on Discovery this past week? The movie purported to be about people exploring the ocean to find evidence of the existence of megalodon, a prehistoric shark that's been extinct for millions of years.

The Discovery Channel has caught (rightfuly) a lot of flack for this show since, well, it was complete fiction and the only sign that it was so was a 3-second disclaimer flashing on the screen at the end of the movie.

Anyway, it re-aired last night and it's available on OnDemand or similar service on your cable-box.

I find this an interesting but dumb move by Discovery given that, by and large, the stuff on it should be grounded in fact and learning and not, you know, complete fiction.
