Jumping the Shark-nado

I have a guest blogger, who insists on remaining anonymous on the condition of possible future posts. 
The 2013 SyFy original movie, "Sharknado," blew up Twitter for a while, which was enough to warrant making a sequel.

I love disaster flicks. 
"Jaws" is one of my favorite movies, and "2012." I would like to think I have pretty high standards.
After a particularly long, stressful week, the weekend was finally here!!
Come Friday, my head is ringing.  I want nothing more than to turn the week off.   The TV remote is my salvation!
 OMG all day on SyFy nothing but ridiculous mutant sea creatures, the climax being "Sharknado 2: The Second One"!!!  It was exactly what the doctor ordered.  Mindless entertainment … for hours … mutant sharks and octopi.
Finally, after struggling through the original "Sharknado," "Sharknado 2" came on.  It’s awful, but totally entertaining.  I thought nothing of work or real life while watching.  It was so ridiculous, cheesy and campy, that it took me away from the stress of real life.  It has awful reviews, and more comments than I can remember on any other movie on how unbelievably stupid it is.  

But I liked it.
I escaped realty for a bit, and had a wonderful time with my husband watching this horrible piece of film.  It was so needed.  The cameos were a blast!  Andy Dick, Kelly Ripa & Michael Strahan, Kelly Osbourne, Matt Lauer & Al Roker, Billy Ray Cyrus, Robert Klein, Paris Hilton, Jared Fogel  from Subway, Biz Markie, Judd Hircsh (as a TAXI driver), Robert Hays (as an AIRPLANE pilot),  Rachel True, Wil Wheaton,  The Naked Cowboy from NYC, Pepa from Salt ‘n’ Pepa, “Downtown” Julie Brown  and many more.
 I have decided, with all we deal with day to day, there is nothing wrong with some mindless entertainment.  We all need it.  It makes us laugh and gave us hours of discussion outside of the "how was your day?" monotony.
Waiting for “Sharknado 3.”
