Jaws: The Revenge – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 107
“It is a cool, calm, tickly day.”
Sea snail scientists Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell take their revenge against Joseph Sargent’s slapdash sequel Jaws: The Revenge. Located a million light-leagues away from the elegant terror of Spielberg’s 1975 classic, this fourth entry turns the shark into a standard-issue 1980s slasher villain.
Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss all-time tomato thieves, science sticks, bleeding boats and Hoagie dinghys.

This week’s darer: Dean Longenecker
Dean’s dare: “Jaws 3D is happy this movie exists. God awful movie. I’m embarrassed that a Great White Shark can’t just enjoy the Bahamas without be accused of stalking. Can anyone say profiling? Allie, The Last Starfighter and the guy who directed New Jack City are there to help Ellen Brody kill the shark. Just watch Orca if you want a good fish revenge story.”
IMDB synopsis: “Chief Brody’s widow believes that her family is deliberately being targeted by another shark in search of revenge.”
