Welcome to DailyKos' second annual liveblog of the television movie disaster/disaster movie Sharknado. This year's sequel is the cleverly-named Sharknado II: The Second One. The movie begins at 9PM Eastern on the Syfy Network. As we did last year, we're going to give the movie the MST3K treatment in the comments and through updates in the diary.

Now that Syfy is aware of how many people love how cheesy the movie is, expect it to be twelve times hokier than the first Sharknado movie.

9:01 Fin and April are married now. (Again? Isn't that his ex?) She wrote a book called How to Survive a Sharknado. They're flying to New York for a signing. I wonder if they're going to see another sharknado?

9:03 They're flying through a storm and Fin is having a panic attack. Fear not, Fin. Sharks don't happen at 32,000. OR DO THEY?

9:04 They do.

9:05 Airplane! reference with the chicken/fish thing.


9:11 Summary of the dialogue so far: "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH."

9:13 The Sharknado theme song is now the theme song of my life.


9:28 So many cameos. So many sharks.

9:31 "What's the inside of a shark smell like? I always thought it'd smell like...chicken."

9:35 "The game has been cancelled due to the snow."
*sharknado hits Shea Stadium*

9:37 I've been informed that the Mets don't play in Shea Stadium anymore. I'm still living in 2008. I can't wait to see what Michael Jackson does with his career!

9:48 The answer to the question "what was that noise?" is always "shark."

10:01 The Statue of Liberty's head just rolled down the street Indiana Jones-style. This is Obama's America.

10:06 The movie became iconic when deli owner Biz Markie casually stabbed the shark and threw it in the pizza oven.

10:19 Taxi driver died. Rude.


10:30 Friendly reminder that slingshotting bombs from the roofs of buildings in New York City is not recommended.


10:45 You can try to be cool but you'll never be "Fin standing on top of a fire truck while slicing a shark in half with a chainsaw" cool.

11:01 And the movie ends with a marriage proposal, covered in shark blood and gore. The end. Until next summer when Sharknado III comes out.

This was fun, thanks for sticking around everyone! See you next summer.


Are you prepared for a sharknado?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
