Were they seriously searching for Megalodon? Or was it obvious that is was tongue-in-cheek?
If you knew Discovery did this before with the mermaids, you knew pretty quickly. If not, you probably picked up on it part way through. It wasn't tongue in cheek. It's supposed to make you think "what if" but it does a poor job.
People are mad because it Discovery is supposed to be educational, and sharks are interesting enough as is to not have actors play fake scientists and show fake footage.
They follow it up tonight with a show about super redneck bayou people searching for another mythical shark.
