The first original program to run during Discovery Channel’s 2013 showing of Shark Week was an over-dramatized show looking at the possibility of the existence of Megalodon, a giant shark at one point believed to be an ancestor of the White shark.The show starts with a dramatic video that looks to be shot by an amateur with friends on a fishing trip.He also became the only player in NCAA history to accumulate 2,000 points, 300 steals and 200 three-point field goals.In addition to leaving Maryland as the school's all-time scoring leader, Dixon also left as the Terrapins' all-time leader in three-pointers made (239) and attempted (615).After his senior season, Dixon was featured on the cover of a video game, NCAA Final Four.
Both Dixon and the Terps entered the 2000–01 season with high expectations.Dixon & Flanigan reconnected and became good friends. Dixon arrived at the University of Maryland, College Park after head coach Gary Williams inadvertently discovered him at an AAU tournament in Georgia.She works in the public relations field and is a cast member in the Bravo reality television show Real Housewives of Potomac. Williams watched as Dixon dove for the ball down 20 points with two minutes to go. Dixon played in 34 games his freshman year and averaged 7.4 points per game.Not a promising first step in figuring out if there’s accuracy behind what I’m watching.Then I searched for the fishing charter accident driving the whole plot behind the show. In this day and age, and with the people shown in the introductory “video” being white adults speaking English, there’s no way this wouldn’t have been covered more extensively in the local, national and international news. After using the powers of the internet to search for the past 90 minutes, I’m decently convinced this show is for dramatic effect only and has no real scientific value. All Discovery Channel needs to do to thrill viewers is show real footage of the creatures up close, not drum up some ridiculous and currently unverifiable story to capture an audience.
