Surprised I didn't see a thread on this yet, maybe I'm blind...

Ocean of Fear was on last night, I liked it, and liked Richard Dreyfuss narrating. Here's a link to the schedule:

and of course the real survival guy is hosting, Les Stroud :)

Which shows are you most excited to see, do you even care, yada yada yada

I've been checking it out. It seems they tape a lot of footage off the coast of South Africa, we get it, the sharks are crazy over there. I hope as the week goes on they vary the locations a bit more.

Im kinda let down thus far. I didnt get to catch the thing on the Indy yet but all the other ones havent been too great. Has it always been repeats with one new show every night?
The one about the 5 people who survived the attacks was brutal. I had to turn it off when that one guy was in the mouth of the great white. Normally I can handle shit like that but for some reason, i had to tap out with that.

ooff, that was brutal. the one they caught live where the guy got his whole calf bit off by a bull shark was awful too. i think they play new shows from 9-11, but i'm not sure.

The show on the Indianapolis was pretty interesting thought, i'm sure they'll replay it this week

The clown who was standing in the water while bull sharks swarmed all over the place... with the inevitable result.

Anyway... they didn't really go into detail about it during the program, but the back story was fucked. The guy who got bit was a "shark behavior expert"... Dr. Erich Ritter. His theory was that by utilizing his own specially developed Yoga breathing and meditation techniques, he could control his his body's electrical output to "communicate" to the sharks the message that he "...was not prey".

:haha7:

So much for that theory.

They didn't play it during that show, but if you watch the original footage, seconds before the shark chomped his leg, Shark expert boy can be heard saying to the other guy, "These sharks couldn't care less that we are here."

Reminds me of that Grizzly Man batshit looney fruitcake "bear expert" who got eaten by bears.

Shit like this cracks me right the fuck up.

I didnt stay in that long to catch that but my brother told me about it today. Ive seen that video on the net where his calf is hanging off in shreds.
My Tivo is set to record the Indy thing later in the week. I think its on again on Sat night/Sun morning. It will be something to enjoy when im dying from a hangover in my bed sunday.
