Last night, one of the year’s most important television events occurred. Did you miss it? Uh oh, DID YOU?! I for sure missed it. What? I’m not embarrassed to admit that I did not watch Sharknado on SyFy. Sharknado’s tagline is: “ENOUGH SAID!”) Some of us, and it could have been any of us, and I don’t think it does you OR me any good to start pointing fingers because there but for the grace of God, amen, but some of us were probably out in the world last night, living our lives, seeking and finding human interaction after a day spent alone indoors! Should such a person be faulted for choosing the company of one’s friends in a social setting over a solitary viewing of a basic cable made-for-TV movie that is, long before you even turn on the set, clearly a joke? I will leave that to the people blogging in glass blogs to decide. I’ll watch it eventually, though. It sounds pretty important! NPR is writing about it, so your mom is probably watching Sharknado right now so that she finally has something to talk to you about when you call on Sunday. Mia Farrow and Philip Roth watched it together and live-tweeted the whole thing except that’s not true they didn’t but that would have been amazing. Variety is reporting that while it may have seemed like everyone was Tweeting about Sharknado, that is not actually true, so that is a whole news story, how you might have thought lots of people were Tweeting but not as many people as you thought are Tweeting. They have news reporters write that up now. Like I said, it was a big deal. And you missed it. Or did you?! No, you did. Or did you?!

  1. I didn’t because I don’t have cable. But one of my friends sent me a snapchat video of a shark leaping up and biting something. So I feel like I saw enough.

  2. I did not watch it because I didn’t know it existed and also because I was catching up on the new season of True Blood with my friend and did you know that that show sucks now? This may be a controversial opinion. We only watch it for the hot guys (and drinking games) now but in the first three episodes Eric didn’t even take his shirt off once so what is even the point!

  3. I spent a bunch of time trying to figure out what the sequel would be titled. My favorite is SHARKNADO 2: 2SHARK2NADO

  4. I really tried. Made the effort to figure out what channel SyFy was and everything. I watched long enough to see Steve Sanders. That was enough.

  5. I MISSED IT AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE DISAPPOINTED WITH MYSELF. Syfy usually doesn’t run new movies until the weekend! Boo me! Boo syfy! Forgive me, sharknado!

  6. I sort of forgot about the whole thing, and didn’t actually think anyone cared, so my girlfriend and I went to a showing of Up on Poppy Hill. It was pretty good, not Ghibli’s best, but still a good time. Overall, good night.

  7. #RIPSHARKNADO. NVR4GET.

  8. Susan Sontag’s ghost is all like AYFKM.

  9. Made it til dad from Home Alone *spoiler* dies (via shark).

  10. The porn spoof should be a tornado of flying dils

  11. I forgot about it! And I didn’t even do anything last night (well, I did things, but they were boring, chore-y things I could’ve done any ol’ time). Terrible.

  12. Remember when people did that talk-like-a-pirate thing for way too long? Yeah, so sharks.

  13. I enjoyed it! It was a long week, and I got a toddler asleep and held a drowsy baby until he fell asleep, then watched Sharknado as a reward. Fighting flying sharks with a chainsaw. Really, I couldn’t ask for more.

    *SPOILER BELOW, I GUESS*

    And John Heard stealing his favorite bar stool when the bar is evacuated, then using said bar stool to save a dog trapped in a car, then immediately being killed by a shark. That was awesome.

  14. I hate it when people ‘ironically’ watch stuff like this (and Liz & Dick and The Room) because for like a week after they look like this

  15. Also, I’ve been trying to think of spin-offs on Twitter. So far I’ve come up with Tsunamanatee, Dolphin Derecho, and Blizzarthropod.

  16. That’s perfect, only a little tweak:

    SHARKNADO: N2 DARKNESS.
