My wife and I enjoyed 'Blood in the Water.' Got a bit repetitive toward the end but the re-enactments and SFX were very well done. Liked how they threw shark facts/tidbits in with the storyline. I was really shocked to learn the first documented US attack was in 1916 (either coast.) I assume other earlier attacks just were misinterpreted or went unreported. And people just didn't frequent the oceans as much back then.

I found it hard to watch Blood in the Water after they blamed the killings on a Great White. No shark expert thinks the 1916 attacks were done by a white, it was a Bull Shark, Whites can't survive in rivers, but Bulls sure can. I know they mentioned the water possibly being saltier than normal, but there is no proof of that at all. To make it even worse, the show prior to it was about the 10 deadliest sharks and in the segment on the Bulls they mentioned this attack and explained why it had to have been a bull.
Not even to mention that a white shark is not a grasp and hold on killer. They tend to take one massive bite and swim away and let the prey bleed to death. A Bull will hold on though.
Just another example of bad science from a network that should know better.

I have told my wife that is one thing I am going to see in person before I croke. The power is simply awesome. Hopefully I can see it before people kill them all off for soup
