It’s been an afternoon of mindless television. I’ve given the last four hours of my life over to watching Peter Benchley’s The Beast on the SciFi Channel.
Poorly done trash starring William Peterson (pre CSI) chasing down giant squid mamas in the local bay. Peterson has to be glad this flick has been superceded on his resume by his role as Gil Grissom. Matter of fact, he might think about having his lawyers sue SciFi for airing The Beast and reminding his newer fans of his lesser work.
Too bad the movie wsn’t as interesting as the real giant squids, which finally made their debut on film last summer.
For a look at all things squid, including info about the footage of real giant squids, check out Squidblog.
It’s got links to everything squid related, including movies with Japanese wrestlers taking on men in rubber giant squid costumes, squid fornicating info and knitted 25-foot long squid.
I will admit I saw nothing linking to Spongebob’s Squidward, so it’s obviously not all inclusive. Although, I think that is about the only tidbit of squid arcana not available.
