Paul Walker, Shark Hunter
It’s called “Shark Men” on National Geographic UK and “Expedition Great White” here in the US, but whatever it’s called, that’s “actor/adventurer” Paul Walker in the boat getting ready to wrassle a shark. You may remember Paul Walker from such hits as Timeline or The Fast and the Furious.
Normally I would spend a few moments to hate on Paul Walker. He’s the worst part of the Fast and Furious franchise and he’s got about as much range as a blow up doll. But I gotta give props where props are due. Not many people would go out on a shitty little boat to hang out with a great white shark, much less catch, capture, and tag them. That’s pretty fucking cool. Ever since Jaws, sharks have gotten a pretty bad name. Some species have been almost hunted to extinction. This expedition hopes to tag and track a few great whites to learn more about their migratory and mating behaviors which as yet has never been done before.
Not sure what the schedule is for the show, but it looks like you can see clips at both the UK channel site and the US site. I kinda like Paul Walker more as a dude wrasslin’ sharks than as an actor. I hope he does more of these expeditions and stays off the screen for a bit. He’s much better at this.
