Super Dinosaur - Rise of the Shark Men

"Rise of the Shark Men" centers around the growing pains of the Kingstons moving into the Dynamo Dome and an attack on an Earthcore station in the Arctic. We get even more petulant Derek (Valin Shinyei), although, to be fair, neither Erin (Shannon Chan-Kent) nor Erica (Shannon Chan-Kent) are considerate of how their actions affect the status quo their introduction has disrupted. The tension culminates in a tense dinner party with neither side looking to comprise (although the burping contest Derek starts to show off does end up paying dividends later on). The other storyline introduces Squidious (Brian Drummond) and his Shark Men who have mistaken the platform as another act of pollution by those who live on the land. Given the Kingston's help with defeating the Shark Men, and the entire family making a more concerted effort to fit in to their new surroundings after dinner, here's hoping we'll be seeing less of Derek's petulant side in the episodes to come.
