SHARK WEEK SPECIAL: Deep Blue Sea (1999)

Deep Blue Sea

Happy Shark Week, listeners! This time, Craig and Julia joins us to wear their shark-fin hats with the Renny Harlin shark shocker Deep Blue Sea! A sea of 90s faces (Samuel L. Jackson, Thomas Jane, Saffron Burrows, LL Cool J) find themselves on the run from genetically-engineered sharks, whose brains have been artificially enhanced to find the cure for Alzheimer’s. (Don’t ask.) What results is an incredibly fun, but oddly goofy and fun flick complete with shitty character names (Carter Blake?), dubious science, and end-credits rap songs.
