Tonight is the beginning of one of my favorite summer obsessions.  That would be Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.

You sit on your couch, you know it's coming and yet it always seems like a surprise.  Shark Week is finally here and I am excited.  It's one of the best full week of programming that the Discovery Channel has to offer.  I have been looking forward to it since it ended last year and this year I think it's going to be even better.

Every time they show one of those great white sharks jumping out of the ocean to get it's prey I get wide eyed.  They could show me slow motion shark jumping everyday and I would never get sick of it.  What is it about sharks that pique our curiosity so much.  I think it's the fact that they make us feel so vulnerable.

I blame Jaws.  That music, the image of the giant shark attacking us when we least expect it.  It's a very scary thing.  So what do we do when we are scared of something?  Become obsessed with it naturally.  I am particularly happy to see that they are doing a Dual Survival episode for Shark Week.  That should be interesting.  According to Cody Lundin's official facebook page the episode will air Wednesday at 9pm.

So sit back, relax and enjoy Shark Week folks!  I know I will be.  You may not want to answer the door though, especially when the person on the other side might be ready to deliver a candy gram.
