I was sharked -- sharked! -- to miss "Sharknado" last week

So I won’t be missing the “Sharknado” encoure tonight — at 6 p.m. on Syfy, OKC Cox Channel 49.

Can’t. Wait. I even watched “Godzilla, King of the Monsters! (Raymond Burr, 1958)” last night to prepare.

This morning, I turned to Facebook for more!

Commenter: “How about: ‘the film sets, studio, locations, and homes where this show was watched are all a horrible waste of real estate.’
