Revenge of the Spy Shark
Following up with yesterday’s post, I thought I’d just go whole hog with the Shark Week concept for this week. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water…
The Adventure Team series was a perfect opportunity to pit the Joes against the forces of nature, and what more deadly a force lurks in the oceans than sharks. The mind immediately goes to the danger of these predatory creatures, or as Matt Hooper put forth, “…what we are dealing with here is a perfect engine, an eating machine. It’s really a miracle of evolution. All this machine does is swim and eat and make little sharks, and that’s all.”
The shark in this adventure has an added wrinkle. It’s equipped with a camera strapped to its head. Not quite a laser beam, but nonetheless impressive. Good thing Joe’s there (or is that the Gorton’s Fisherman?) to take care of it.
