SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Get your chainsaws ready because, whether you like it or not, "Sharknado" is back on TV and social media.

SyFy's "Sharknado 2: The Second One", the sequel to the ridiculous "Sharknado" movie, arrives Wednesday. It's, as you might have guessed, about a shark-infested tornado terrorizing New York City. (Via Syfy / 'Sharknado 2'

And the film's reviews are a lot like those for the original — they're pretty horrible. (Via Sioux City Journal | Newsday | Columbus Alive

For example, as Newsday puts its review, "​For 'Sharknado' fans: B- ... For viewers with highly refined tastes — or any taste — and sharks: F+"

Though, that's not really surprising considering the first "Sharknado" really only gained popularity on social media for its over-the-top, ridiculous, and not-even-close-to-realistic antics. Its creators say viewers can expect more of the same in the second one. (Via Twitter

"We spent months and months and months workshopping gags, brainstorming gags. ... It's an asylum film at the end of the day. It's outrageous and fun." (Via Grantland

And there are certainly those who appreciate the humor in the "intentionally bad" movie. "The Second One" is actually getting positive reviews from some. (Via Mother Nature Network | The Plain Dealer

Now, as for what you may expect to see — spoiler alert — tons of cameos, notable locations, and plenty of sharks. 

New York Daily News compiled a list of famous and semi-famous cameos, including Kelly Osbourne, Billy Ray Cyrus, Andy Dick, Perez Hilton, Al Roker, Matt Laurer and many many more. 

Previews of the movie even caught up with sports sites as part of the movie takes place at the New York Mets' Citi Field. It's a rain delay like no other rain delay we've ever seen. (Via USA Today

If you're interested in watching, or more interested on when to stay off your social media circles, "Sharknado 2: The Second One" premieres on the Syfy channel Wednesday at 9/8c.
