The trailer for the SyFy television movie 'Mega Piranha' is pretty ridiculous. It makes the "Imagine Greater" tagline of the channel seem ironic. Even more ridiculous, however, is the fact that the television movie got higher ratings than 'Caprica' and was the channel's most-watched movie for the year.
