Format: DVD
Every year the Discovery Channel does their "Shark Week" thing; a series of shark-themed shows. Now they've released a new collection of some of these shows that also acts as a great sampler for the network's programs (well, at least those that don't center around blue-collar jobs, like "World's Deadliest Catch").

You get episodes of "Survivorman", "Mythbusters" and "Dirty Jobs". So far I've only watched the "Mythbusters" and "Dirty Jobs" episodes.

The "Mythbusters" one is a 90 minute special and includes things like a mechanical shark and a robot dog with some interesting secretions...

For "Dirty Jobs" you get to watch Mike Rowe and friends as they head up north. Way up north. So far north that you can't go too much farther north without going south. They head out there in search of an elusive shark that may be eating seals.

You also get "How Not to Become Shark Bait" (lesson one, I'm guessing, don't work for the Discovery Channel), "Mysteries of the Shark Coast", and "Day of the Shark".

Bonus features include some "Dirty Jobs" stuff, as well as something called "Summer of the Shark".

Overall a good little package at quite a good price!

My grandson who is 6 loves these documentaries, he watches them over and over. I have learned much too. He beamed when he received it as a birthday gift, although he has already seen it.

6 Episodes (HD) plus 2 Bonus Episodes (not in HD).

Ever see a Great White Shark in the flesh? Well, this Blu-ray will show them to you as never before and from the safety of a TV. Beautiful and majestic creatures, up close and in HD! A great collection of shows from Shark Week 2008.

BLU RAY THOUGHTS: This disc is gorgeous and does the sharks justice. Pristine picture and crisp audio. FINAL VERDICT: UPGRADE from the DVD!

Awesome to watch blown on a projection system. The 1080 quality on these episodes are really incredible. Some scenes appeared to be in 3D even! Educational, but certainly of the kind where I can see it multiple times just for the enjoyment of it. Truly shows off your system as well.

If you want to see Great White Sharks up close than this is the documentary for you. They're all over the place, including lots of other sharks. Focuses are on how sharks attack, what to do if you are attacked by a shark, real people who survived shark attacks and explorers going underwater and messing with sharks in all types of ways you couldn't imagine. OVERALL GRADE: B.
