i'm not as fascinated with sharks as many other people appear to be, but if it gets me new discovery channel episodes (mythbusters), i'm all for it.

MythBusters: Shark Special: "Shark Week kicks off with this two-hour premiere on Sunday, July 27th from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT. Using their signature sci-tech style of explosive experimentation, the MythBusters hit the deep blue from California to the Bahamas to investigate myths about sharks, including: Are sharks repelled by magnets? Do dogs attract sharks? Do the vibrations caused by a flapping injured fish attract sharks? Does chili powder repel sharks? And hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman create the ultimate Shark Week build – a 16-foot-long robo-shark!"

Surviving Sharks: "Premiering Monday, July 28th from 9-10 p.m. ET/PT, Survivorman's Les Stroud hosts this look at how best to play it safe in the water, while testing popular theories of how to survive shark encounters."

Day of the Shark (working title): "This special, premiering Monday, July 28th from 10-11 p.m. ET/PT, chronicles six recent shark attacks that took place at different times of day, to determine if day or night is safer for swimming."

How Not To Become Shark Bait: "On Tuesday, July 29th from 10-11 p.m. ET/PT, a thrillseeking team with a purpose - escapologist Jonathan Goodwin, adrenaline junkie Yul Kwon, marine biologist Jeremiah Sullivan and scientist Dr. Marty Jopson - test shark attraction theories with lemon,On tiger and reef sharks, focusing on the sensory perception of sharks including colors, vibrations, smells and other attractors. In the process, viewers learn strategies for staying safe when in the water."

Mysteries of the Shark Coast: "On Australia's northeastern coast, home to more species of sharks than anywhere else in the world, the sharks are disappearing. A cross-discipline team of marine biologist Richard Fitzpatrick, filmmaker Mike deGruy, lead scientist for the Nature Conservancy, M. Sanjayan, Ph.D, and adventurer Celine Cousteau, band together to find out why, in this two-hour special premiering Thursday, July 31 from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT."

Verizon just got Animal Planet in HD. Check out Maneaters. You'll never go near the water. They focus on Sharks and Crocs.

I'll be checking out Shark Week if it's in HD.
