Storyline

In 2016, when marine biologist Dr Brian McCormick (Sean C. Michael) stumbled across a recording of mysterious underwater sounds, he launched a scientific investigation to uncover the creature responsible. In search of conclusive proof, he and his research team are called out to an unusual whale stranding in South Africa. Here they find the part digested remains of an animal none of them can identify. As each of its body parts is autopsied, they provide new pieces of the puzzle. As the picture builds, McCormick is drawn to an astonishing conclusion: this new marine creature is related to humans. This two-hour special combines beautiful CGI animation, real natural history, a thrilling contemporary conspiracy theory and a race against time to unveil an ancient secret before it's too late.hell no Written by Film Fan

Mermaids: Stupidity Found..
9 March 2013 | by ZashiratoriSee all my reviews

I do agree with everyone that Animal Planet and Discovery Channel has, for the most part, lost their factual take on shows and specials, and after watching this, I've lost my respect with both. The fact is, is that we're not here for 'What If' documentaries that claim to be true when they aren't! Not only was it stupid but also very dramatized and hard to sit through all of it.

If most people are curious to watch it because of the horrible reviews its getting, to have their own opinions... There are better things to do with this time, such as: biting all your fingernails completely off, giving yourself 1000 paper cuts on your face, take a nap on shards of broken glass, or to even have all your blood sucked out by leeches... All in which would be more productive and entertaining/informative....

All in all, fake (duh), stupid, waste of time and widely advertised as a documentary that only belongs on the sci fy Chanel, not either one that people are supposed to have any respect for factual documentaries on! Animal Planet, Discovery.. You disgust me...
