Transmissions: Just When you Thought it was Safe to Watch TV…Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens Hits the Small Screen

Guilty pleasure. Defined by Webster’s as “something, sharknado 4such as a movie, television program, or piece of music that one enjoys despite feeling that it is not held in high regard”.
