I just watched Mermaids: Body Found on Discovery.

I now hate Discovery. I officially hate anyone who creates a 'science docufiction', period, especially if they go to lengths to avoid disclosing that everything is fiction.

To go as far as to put the disclaimer at the beginning of the program:

"The scientists in this film are speaking on camera for the first time."

Just really sticks in my craw.

You watched something with mermaid in the title, so...you can only blame yourself.

I generally leave the TV on discovery whenever I'm not specifically watching something else. Tonight was family night, and we enjoyed the film.

I just hate how they try to pretend that it's real, making up fake names and claiming the actors worked for government agencies and universities.

That wasn't like one of the documentaries on Bigfoot or Nessie?

Zoolander; easy. Didn't even have to look it up. Also, your name reminds me of the movie every time I read it.

Haha me too! I still think of him as that avatar.

Also, these comments make me want to start a name-that-movie-quote thread. In 3, 2, 1...
