"This dvd contains two shark documantarys from the discovery channel.Sharks the Ultimate Guide features cool video footage of all kinds of sharks as well as a lot of information.It features hammerheads,blue sharks,makos,tiger sharks,the greenland shark,sixgill,the whaleshark and my favorite the great white shark.Ultimate guide to sharks is presented in Widescreen and runs about 60 minutes.Great white this show is exclusively about the great white shark and features new footage of great whites never seen until this dvd.Great White runs about 90 minutes.Both of these films are very clean crisp and sharp on dvd.I've never seen shark documantarys this sharp.Discovery Channel if your reading this please put the ten deadliest sharks on dvd and also your other ultimate guides especially the one on snakes."
Very boring documentary

"I must say that this documentary is a very good alternative for sleeping pills. I fell asleep watching this documentary. It just shows old footage of great whites; late 1980s to early 1990s footage, very lame. It keeps on showing the same footage over and over again. The first part of the DVD talks about different types of sharks which is educational. It gets boring because it is too long and repetitive. The second part is suppose to be about only great whites but it also talks about other marine animals too that are not sharks. Which can sometimes be as long as 10-15 minutes. What's the point of naming this documentary about great whites for? Once it begins to talk about great whites, they show the same old footage over and over and over. This drags on for about 1hr and 45mins. This is when I fell asleep, watching the second part of the DVD.
Do not, I repeat, do not buy this DVD. Unless you're a hardcore enthusiast about sharks, then it is for you. If you want to see good and new footage of ONLY great whites, I highly recommend you to get "Discovery Channel: Air Jaws 1 and Air Jaws 2." This is a very good documentary about great whites leaping out of the water and techniques they use to kill their prey."
Lots of sharks on this one DVD

"Two great Discovery Channel shark features on one DVD. I especially liked the "Ultimate Guide" since it showed several sharks I had never heard of and/or seen on video. The Greenland Shark was quite a sight, I replayed that portion three times. If you like shark videos I believe you'll like both the features."
