    Just finished watching this on Discovery Channel. Best part was the picture of the giant shark fins next to the Nazi submarine. You know it real because they didn't have photoshop in WW2.

    When is Discovery going to bring back quality scientific informative programming like American Chopper! :D

    I watched that one too. Was pretty cool, except for the diver that firmly believes they don't exist. Even though he had one swim right along side of him and knock around his cage. That would be sufficient evidence for me to believe!

    No Megalodon any more. Notice they always rediscover those types of critters only after people catch on to others faking them? No current teeth or bodies too.

    While its true that the tuatara, celocanth and crocodiles go back millions of years, they can't be used to "prove" megalodons exist currently. I didn't see the show, but it sounds like more bunk science like mermen and ancient aliens.

    So the show started and the guy fights a megalodon for 2 hours, what b.s. he'd go in the water immediately or the line woulda snapped right away. No fighting chair for a 40' plus shark?

    What I don't know is how they get away with such fake &BS programming. TV seems worse than the internet lately.
