Ready to get a bigger boat? Then follow us as we take on the massive DVD set known as "Shark Week: Jawesome Encounters" out June 14 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. We see if there’s bite in the black water below!

Overview: Anyone who digs sharks is gonna appreciate this set. Whether it’s Great Whites, Hammerheads, Megas or even baby ones, the shark love will be appeased as this set has a whopping thirteen episodes which means there’s a little blood in the water for everyone.

Best Episode: 'Shark of Darkness: Wrath of Submarine' has actual footage of folks on a tour boat being sunk, thrown into the water and then being dragged down – hard. Plus there are rescue bits and the flying shark attacking footage is unforgettable.

Worst Episode: 'Monster Hammerhead' not only features creatures that just aren’t all that scary (watch the divers push their big heads out of the way!), but has the cheesiest of all the narrations with a horrible voiced dude saying things like “friggin laser beams!” and "The Harbor Master" over and over again – death by Hammerhead seems preferable.

Best Jaws Moment: In 'Jaws Strikes Back' we get a close up shot of the underwater Shark Cam being gnawed on by a couple of angry Great Whites – big teeth man!

Best Hidden Gem: Late, great actor Paul Walker shows up in the episode 'Spawn of Jaws: the Birth' as they put a tracking device on a pregnant shark to see where she lands to give birth – sadly he died before they could meet again months later to witness it.

Worth the Moola: With more toothed bang for the buck grab this sucker by the fin and reel ‘em in!
