Shark Week 20th Anniversary Collection (with bonus disc)

"(quote from the back of the box) "Lurking silently beneath the ocean's surface is one of nature's most terrifying creatures...a powerful predator who can rip its prey apart in a matter of seconds!" Shark Week always makes sharks look like man eating beasts at first, but when you get through the first few documentaries there is some really interesting information on sharks. While yet yes sharks are dangerous they rarely attack humans, but you wouldn't know this by watching the first few documentaries, Discovery Channel's Shark Week always starts with shark attacks or survivor's of shark attacks, and of course focuses on the great white shark. While yet this is interesting, these documentaries always get repetitive, but for people fascinated with shark attacks it might give you a thrill or make you avoid the ocean even more. My cup of tea lies in the documentaries about the smaller more unheard of sharks, or tracking great white sharks and studying their behavior, it's fascinating how powerful these creatures are and this collection has a nice variety of documentaries.
This DVD includes fourteen documentaries spanning over twenty years and it's a lengthy DVD collection, there are four discs as well as descriptions for each documentary. And for around twenty dollars, this collection is a bargain. And the packaging is very nice, there are many photographs spread across each slim case. If you are lucky, you may also get a bonus disc to go along with the collection. And you may be wondering, what's on it? An episode of the Discovery Channel's popular series Mythbusters, in this episode, Jamie and Adam test some "Jaws" inspired myths, and it's a very interesting episode that I would recommend watching.
Shark Week has some great and mediocre programs but for fourteen programs at the price of twenty dollars this is a good bye and it's recommended for people interested or curious about sharks.
