Just when you thought it was safe to channel surf across the cable box comes the Discovery Channel's "Shark Week '92," an eight-day festival of shark-related documentaries. The first installment is "The Man Who Loves Sharks" (Sunday at 5 and 10 p.m.).
Stan Waterman, one of the world's leading underwater photographers, is the subject of the program, which might be better titled "The Man Who Photographs Sharks and Loves His Family."
It's not that Waterman is not fit for a TV biography--he is--but, at two hours, the program includes too many home movies and too many fawning words from his friend and the show's host, author Peter Benchley.
At one point, Benchley says of Waterman: "He is the last Cavalier, a man who lives in many ways in the 18th Century. A sense of honor, duty, responsibility and fair play--all of which are thought by people to be obsolete at the moment--all come into play in his daily life."
