Star Trek: The Next Generation actor-turned-blogger Wil Wheaton, who says he loves Shark Week, thinks Discovery Channel "owes its viewers an apology." He believes the documentary was "more suited for the SyFy channel."

The stories have been out there for years and with 95% of the ocean unexplored, who really knows?"
