Animal Planet is a big, fat tease.
Whenever I go somewhere that has television, I look forward to catching It’s Me Or The Dog or Dogs 101. But do I ever see them?
No! Because it’s always Shark Week. Or else they’re airing 20 Creepy Crawlies You Wouldn’t Invite To Dinner, over and over again.
Now I’d be happy to watch a show about sharks if I thought I’d learn something. But the sensational music and narration leads me to believe this is just another example of sharksploitation. And sharks have enough problems with their PR without me supporting that.
So imagine how happy I was to discover this video on Buzzfeed:
Animal Planet, who needs you? We’ve got Animals Acting Like Sharks Week.
So cable subscribers, tell me. Does Animal Planet air anything except for shows intended to scare or freak people out?
