While some people like to head to the beach for the summer, others prefer to stay indoors and soak up the air conditioning, with SYFY serving up some of their best shark-themed programs later this summer to rival the famous Shark Week that is a staple of every summer on the Discovery Channel. As you would imagine, the network is delivering repeat broadcasts of their famous Sharknado franchise, in addition to a number of other shark-themed monster movies.

The first Sharknado debuted back in 2013 and, thanks to the prominence of social media, saw audiences unite online to share their thoughts about the absurd experience. The film became such a viral hit that it earned five sequels, depicting a number of crazy adventures featuring a tornado that was so powerful it could suck sharks up out of the ocean.
Tune in to SYFY's Shark Week starting on Saturday, August 23rd.
