A lot of TV shows jump the shark. We prefer when programs confront their sharks directly, in any way, shape, or form, be they sharks in the water or sharks in the sky.

Please, please, please don't miss "Sharknado," a made-for-TV movie premiering on the SyFy channel tonight, at 9 p.m. PST. In what promises to be the most epic racket involving weird animal disasters since Snakes on a Plane, (sans Samuel L. Jackson, unfortunately), disaster strikes SoCal in the form of a freak thunderstorm, lifting and scattering our favorite living fossils to the four winds.

Check out the trailer of massive, whirling tunnels of sharks.

Looks like we're not the only ones dumping on L.A. anymore.

As if that's not enough for you to tune in, the film stars American Pie's Tara Reid and that guy from "90210", who chainsaws a flying shark in half, apparently.

Holy shark. Anyway, be sure to tune into so you, too, can be a part of of this inevitable-cult-classic's inaugural spin. After all, it's already gotten the Internet's jaws snapping.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
