Episode 67: Jaws
“What if a shark got in here and went mad?”
The Panel of Peril abandon their dinghy and run out of the sea screaming at the top of their of their collective lungs! They have an appointment to keep with this week’s film and do not want to be late! Yes, this week they are watching Jaws (Steven Spielberg, 1975).
Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) thinks he’s in for a quiet life as the head of police on the small island of Amity. He’s quickly disabused of that notion when a shark attack threatens both the citizens of Amity and the lifeblood of the island: the tourist industry. Enlisting the help of marine biologist Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and salty sea dog Quint (Robert Shaw), the odd trio are in a race against time to stop the Great White from killing again…

********PLOT SPOILER ALERT********
Sad to say that Brody, Hooper and Quint are hindered in their quest by human foe Mayor Vaughan (Murray Hamilton). Refusing to accept that a shark is responsible for the savaged human remains, refusing to close the beaches in the interests of public safety, instructing reluctant citizens to go INTO the water… this son of a gun is a real piece of work. How can our heroes convince him to see sense and make Amity safe once again?
Just what did the panel think of this week’s movie, pray tell? How can they improve upon the villain’s masterplan? And who will be christened this week’s most diabolical?
