You know it's a sweeps month. Even the National Geographic Explorer series is obviously trolling for viewers.

The program begins dully, with an amateur shark study off the Bahamas. Then it's on to an expedition to photograph the rare six-gill shark, which inhabits murky depths more than a mile beneath the surface. Aggressive and bigger than the Great White, this behemoth is the star of the show.

Finally, there's a plea to protect the more than 350 species of shark. Hey, we tuned in to dread these predators, not to get all cuddly and conservationist. That's the problem with this special: It's too sedate to deserve that exclamatory title.
