Horrid!

This one is so bad on so many levels, it's hard to know where to start. Even the title is stupid and makes no sense. The women being trained are supposedly going to Venus and are called "astronettes" instead of astronauts, BUT the title is Aquanettes. Why?

In 1960, why are they training an all female crew to go to Venus? I suppose it's because Venus is the goddess of love, so only women can go there. This shows the mentality of this episode. It's beyond ridiculous...

Most of the show is like a soap opera where the women act catty and squabble over who gets Mike's attentions. There's even a cat fight! It's really rough to sit through.

Then there's the whole shark thing. To be nit picky, the shots don't match up at all. The group shots show White-tip reef sharks, but single shots show black-tips or sharks with no color on the tip. I've snorkled with black and white tips, and they don't eat people. This episode spreads misconceptions about what kind of sharks are dangerous to people. Then, we get the "pleasure" of seeing a real shark killed by a spear gun. We even get to see it thrashing in agony on the sea floor after it gets shot. Now, there's some good ole family entertainment for ya! Maybe in the next episode they'll beat some baby Eskimos to death like baby seals...

The whole episode is just one white power trip, where the white guy saves the white women and destroys nature. Maybe when Trump stops Tweeting and starts to make America great again, we can have more family shows like this on TV. Can't wait...
