Did you watch? Syfy's latest disaster movie, about a shark tornado (duh), may not be winning an Academy Award anytime soon, but it sure is winning the Internet since it aired Thursday night.
The film, which Entertainment Weekly dubbed "another Syfy disaster film gone horribly right," stars John Heard, Tara Reid, and "90210" alum Ian Ziering as protagonist Fin Shepard. Fin Shepard. Does it get any better than that?
Not that it matters, but the plot is as such: When a huge tornado upends the ocean and floods the streets of Los Angeles, sending hundreds of vicious sharks hurtling through the air, Fin, a bar owner, is called upon to stop them. Read an interview with the movie's writer, Thunder Levin, that may answer any more questions you have.
The channel's ridiculous-action-movie roster already includes 2010's "Sharktopus," "Dinoshark," 2012's "Piranhaconda," and "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid," which, naturally, starred pop stars Tiffany and Deborah Gibson.
Check out the hilarious reaction to "Sharknado" and next time it's on, set your DVR:
We're ready to respond if there is a #Sharknado. If it were to happen, it would be in Oklahoma. Why? Because we're tough like that.— Red Cross Oklahoma (@redcrossokc) July 12, 2013

If the Sharknado isn't Aquaman's revenge on humanity for constantly calling him lame, then I don't know what. #SharkNado— Superman /Clark Kent (@JerkSuperman) July 12, 2013
