    I did not have cable in the summers on Peaks Island, so as a teenager during Shark Week, I would often head down to the TEIA Club before sailing or before work to try to catch reruns of the previous nightโ€™s episode. I remember most of the episodes during that time being heavily focused on shark attacks and I would be lying to you if I denied that my teenage self did not find it dramatically entertaining.
