Every summer at this time, it is the sworn goal of the TV Blog to somehow get quoted in Syfy’s promo spots for its annual “Sharknado” movie.
This summer’s installment is “Sharknado 6” (if you can believe it) -- subtitled “The Last Sharknado: It's About Time.” It premieres this coming Sunday night (August 19).
Whether or not this will really be the last “Sharknado” movie remains to be seen. The other half of the title -- “It’s About Time” -- refers to this year's main plot line, which has the sharknado fighters traveling back in time to battle tornado-borne sharks throughout history, including prehistory, the late 1300s in England, the American Revolution, the Old West of the 19th century and a southern California beach in the early ’60s.
All of the principal stars are back -- Ian Ziering (seen riding a giant shark in the photo above), Tara Reid, Vivica A. Fox, Cassandra Scerbo and Judah Friedlander. And they are joined as usual by a bevy of surprise guests in a variety of offbeat roles.
Actually reviewing this movie is unnecessary because it is obviously awesome. You might even say that “Sharknado 6” is: “The feel-good shark-tornado movie of the year!”
