Did Issue 34 jump the shark or something else?
Poll #1552928 Buffy and the Marine Predator of Doom

Almost everyone agrees Season 8 jumped something in issue 34, but was it

the shark?
the Pacific giant octopus?
the giant jurassic pliosaur liopleurodon?
a leopard seal?
a Humboldt squid?
a box jellyfish?
a penguin?
a barracuda, to the sound of the song by Heart?
totally ripped off the Hancock/Mary fight scene from "Hancock"?

As much as I loathe the expression "jumping the shark", I wonder if flying in orbit around a planet containing sharks counts as a literal example?

I had to pick penguin because it gives me an excuse to use this icon.

You omitted the button for "I gave up on the comic a lot earlier..."

It had to be a penguin, since you unaccountably omitted "All of the above and more." from the options.

I'm not reading, but from the reviews I've seen, I'd say it jumped all of the above and then some more you failed to mention. LOL

I think it took a wrong turn at the planet without shrimps around issue 2 or maybe 1.

If S8 were actually on TV, were canon and if the majority of people actually cared about them, I think 34 would set a new standard as the point of no return for a series. That is the level of badness in 34. No longer would "jump the shark" be used, but "space f@#ked" (with this cowardly alternate spelling).

"Did you watch All Points North last night?"
"Nah, man. That show space f@#ked last season. I'm done with it."

Bwahahahahahaha! Oh, that's just wonderful! It belongs on metaquotes or something.

It not only jumped the shark, it flew into the crowd of observers on the beach and killed three people.
