I was away from home and away from my computer all weekend, but I want to tell you about an amusing new show on Animal Planet. It’s about a couple of New York aquarium builders who moved to Las Vegas to build some of the most spectacular aquariums in the world.
If you haven’t seen this program, which started in August, you are missing a reality show with family tension, practical jokes and some of the most unusual aquarium designs I have ever seen.
These aquariums are installed in casinos, restaurants, offices and homes for a variety of occasions, many of them romantic. I always thought of aquariums as square and ordinary until I saw this show. I could watch just to be surprised by the unusual tanks featured each week, yet this real-life odd-ball family is more fun than most fictional characters you see on TV sitcoms.
If you visit the “Tanked” website, you
can catch up on the already-aired programs along with many extra
videos, such as Wayde and Brett’s
top-five most amazing aquariums, “Tanked”
highlights, the most annoying habits of
Wayde and even tips for
building your own aquarium.
Please let me know what you think about this show.
