Just when you thought it was safe to go back on Twitter, "Sharknado 2: The Second One" hit the small screen last night.

This made for TV movie is the sequel to the cult film and Twitter phenomenon "Sharknado." The first film had a record-setting number of tweets, and an increasing number of viewers have been catching up on reruns on the Syfy channel. The sequel takes us to NYC: Sharks in the subway, anyone?

Kristen Meinzer, culture producer for The Takeaway and co-host of The Movie Date Podcast, joins us to talk about the film, and the best and worst of the twittersphere during the premiere.
