It's got a Garand in it, doesn't it?

Seriously, they said something about they were going to explore shark attacks after the movie. Something like that.

Hmm,, good point. And they talk about the USS Indianapolis. OK it's historical.

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. I hate that they would run this crap. They have so much material, plus an infinitely interesting topic and they are burning airtime with “jaws.” Who has not seen the damn thing 1000 times anyway? Just like the travel channel always focusing on casinos and gambling, maybe they could try travel for a change of pace. I just don't get it

Could it be that they thought they were showing "Jews", a movie about the holocaust?

Just like how MTV never plays music anymore, just reruns of the real world and crap like that

Like I posted in a previous thread, the novel "Jaws" is very very loosely based on the Jersey Man-eater of the early 1900s. I assume that's where they're going with it.

That and it's such a badass movie, it IS history.

Yep, they have a special on the shark attacks of the early 1900's tommorrow, which Jaws was based on. Thats why they are playing the movie tonight.

And the author died very recently, also.
