Tonight marks the beginning of Shark Week, when we all get to see sharks the way God intended: on our televisions.
Discovery starts things off at 9pm with a new show, Ultimate Air Jaws, full of scary great white sharks in South Africa that jump clear out of the water. One uplifting feature of this program is slowing down a shark's one-second assault to stretch out over an entire minute, for a really detailed look at the predator in action.
If you like that kind of thing, there's a repeat at 8pm of an oldie but a goodie, Air Jaws: The Sharks of South Africa. Same sort of stuff -- flying sharks leaping out of the water to snatch unsuspecting seals.
Then at 10pm, in Into the Shark Bite, the actual power of shark bite is documented (it's strong).
