    The discovery channel sucks

    "super storms"

    WTF is this crap? I watch this stuff for reality and science, not a fluffy mini series. If this is whats on the Discovery channel, i fear for whats on NBC right now.

    I'd rather a loop of Mythbusters myself.

    I want the original Junk Yard Wars to come back. I've found that any show Discovery hypes heavily is aimed at too low a level for me to find it interesting.

    The ridiculously low-brow show Brainac is about the worst I've ever seen! Not sure if that's on outside of Europe, though.

    Is Shark Week finally over?...seemed to last a month...


    "Hey! Look at me, I'm in the water with a great white!"

    "Hey! Look at the shark leaping out of the water in super-duper-slow-mo as it cuts a seal in half! IN SLO-MO!"

    "Hey! Look at the crew of the USS Indianapolis getting eaten over and over and over again!"

    "Hey! Look at the guy who is standing in the water with sharks, when one decided to take a bite out of his legs...let's make a show about that, with a robot shark 'recreating' the event that was already caught on camera!!!"


    /Mythbusters marathon yesterday.

    If you program your TIVO for the keywords "Hitler" and "sharks," I think your entire drive gets filled up in a day.

    I miss monster house. Although near the end they were stretching the ideas pretty thin ......dog house, playhouse for the kids. The tiki bar one was cool.

    Ironically, Junk yard wars is on Discovery right now (Mon, 1:00pm PST). I haven't seen it for at least a couple years.
