‘Sharknado’ says goodbye with T-Rex fight, Neil deGrasse Tyson


The Sharknado franchise is ending with The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time, and it didn’t hold back with time travel, sharks fighting dinosaurs, and an appearance from Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Over the course of several years, the Sharknado films fully embraced their campiness as shark-filled tornadoes terrorized different parts of the world (and became an annual live-tweeting delight). And in the final film, it’s no different as a trailer teased Fin (Ian Ziering) traveling back through time to stop sharknadoes from forming and wrecking his life in the first place.

The sharks are everywhere throughout space and time as they attack a T-Rex, Revolutionary War soldiers, cowboys, and Fin in a futuristic world. And as the case with any Sharknado movie, the sharks are far from the weirdest thing about it.

The film debuted on SYFY Sunday night with more showings scheduled for Monday, bringing plenty of laughs for those who had no idea what they were watching and for those who were all on the shark-infested tornado train. Once you suspend your disbelief in a major way, it becomes quite the ride. Naturally, the internet was in love.

Despite its inherent silliness, it was still a big event for some viewers, one that required customized snacks.

We’re gonna miss these wild movies.
