After the last 2 years' mockumentaries on the megalodon where actors falsely portrayed scientists and biologists and lied their asses off and used false info and made up incidents and did it to gain greater ratings, I don't trust anything Discovery puts out anymore. Gang of liars. Discovery has lost a lot of respect and credibility and now they've come up with even more lies and rip offs to deceive their viewers. Nobody wants fairytales and crackpipe theories: WE WANT TRUTH AND GENUINE TRUE EVIDENCE,..

This is a fictional Jaws remake for the contemporary moment. Discovery uses its honed reality/documentary framing to stage a new version of Jaws with updated technology and science, without the political commentary of the original. It maintains a degree of scientific excitement of all Discovery Channel shows, but dramatizes the speed and funding (actually these are never addressed) to accomplish the goal. Too bad this wasn't advertised as such beforehand and that it flashes as being fiction only at the end, very very briefly. Knowing that, however, it was very entertaining and fun to watch. The only real complaint is that I think the actors playing scientists become hyperbolic about the "threat" of sharks and do not emphasize (like they should) sharks' lack of danger to humans. Then again, the hyperbolic-ness of the scientists provides the necessary audience affect to maintain interest and enjoy the show.

So disappointed with Discovery for this mockumentary. I watch Shark Week to learn about and see true stories about sharks, not watch made up drivel passed off as real to fool people. Its irresponsible of Discovery to pass this show off as fact, even with the pre-show "disclaimer" that most people missed. Ill watch Syfy to get my fake shark movies...keep Discovery for the real facts.
