Why? Outside of being eaten by sharks.

I have a few shows I've been watching: MasterChef, Orphan Black, Continuum, Falling Skies, and Defiance. Can you tell I like Sci-Fi?

Also, even though it's been on for several years, I only just started watching "The Big Bang Theory" recently. I don't know how I missed it the first time around.

LOVE the Big Bang Theory! Our son is an egghead with egghead friends. When they would get together at my folks' home when I was restoring it they acted a lot like the BBT guys. Watching that show is a bit of a throw-back to when we were all together.

I watch very little TV normally, but during the summer (as in BASEBALL season) I watch basically The Chew on ABC and local news. Maybe a Castle rerun late night. Looking forward to a few new shows the networks have been teasing about for this fall: CBS's "The Crazy Ones" with Robin Williams & "Back in the Game" with James Caan. Both look pretty promising.

Have you seen that show? Too many dangerous creatures down there. Sharks are the least of them. I will stay on top of the water and look through a glass bottom boat.

I love dangerous creatures! I've survived many jellyfish and stinging hydroids....will have to look for the show.

BBT is an all-time fave here too. I can rewatch all the reruns.

Portuguese Man O War's are invading the Northeast shores here. Care to visit and walk along our shores? Those creatures are sure BIG! What makes them so dangerous is they can live out of the water for a while and still remain lethal.

Yes, even when they're dead, they can still sting. Thankfully, I haven't encountered one yet, though they're pretty widespread.

MasterChef is on tonight!

I probably wouldn't snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, although it was a wish for a long time, until I watched a few shows about blue-ringed octopus, box jellyfish and great white sharks. All of which are often fatal.

Still on the Bucket List. If my time is up, that's how I'd want to go out! Punching a great white in the nose, wrestling an octopus, will pass on the jellies. They're painful.

And that is only three of the hundreds of deadly creatures down there.
