As summed up in our Sharknado review, Syfy hit a home run last night… while somehow striking out at the same time.

Yes, this made-for-television movie was so bad it was great, as summed up by a near explosion of hilarious comments on Twitter.

We’ve chosen the best below from a few folks you may have heard of:

Afton Williamson as Talia Bishop

Damon Lindelhof: “This movie is such a ripoff of THE BICYCLE THIEF. #LiveTweetingSharknado #Highbrow.”

B.J. Novak: “I’m afraid that now when we have a real sharknado everyone’s going to treat it like a joke”


Patton Oswalt: “Just got a call from the 2nd A.D. on the movie I’m filming. Call time canceled tomorrow. ALL movies canceled. It’s done. #SharkNado”

Olivia Wilde: @ElizabethBanks Banks, this is our chance to play Siamese twins: two heads, one magnificent shark tail. Emmys all around. #SharknadoTwo

Rob Delany: “I usually hate Wes Anderson, but Sharknado’s actually pretty good.”

Damon Lindelof: “I know it’s only been 12 hours, but I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to talk about anything non-Sharknado-related again.”

Horatio Sanz: “I wish I could join in on the shenanigans, But I had a cousin that was killed by a #Sharknado back in ’93. #RamonRIP”

Judah Friedlander: “Thanks for watching #Sharknado with me. I’m going to work on my screenplay for Vaginaconda.”
