Show Summary

Did a Medieval Chinese astrologer make it into space by strapping rockets to his chair and setting them off? Just how hard IS it to find a needle in a haystack? Can you in fact go insane by having water drip on your forehead? These are just a few of the myths, urban legends, and improbable sayings that the Mythbusters try to figure out. Comprised of special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Heineman - as well as their mottley crew of Mythbuilders, Mythterns, and resident 'crash test dummy' Buster - they don't just tell the myths, they put them to the test to see which ones are possible, and which ones are just plain bunk. As of 2008, MYTHBUSTERS has tested 600 myths, done over 1,900 experiments and created over 650 explosions to prove these Myths Right or Wrong!

  • Discovery ruined one of the most entertaining series ever

    8.5
    Now that they fired Kari, Tory and Grant I certainly won't be watching. They didn't even bother to inform the audience about why and when. Discovery Channel really screwed the pooch on this one. The recent zombie episode was also ridiculous. They should just re-hire the build team and get back to busting myths instead of just blowing stuff up. Shame.
  • Seems a bit limited opinion/view/tests

    There have been stories of late 1930's Ford V8 engines gaining upwards of 100mpgs by atomizing the fuel instead of squirting it directly into the cylinders. Are the BIG OIL companies HOSING us? We would love to find out!
  • Learning is FUN

    Who would think that testing the most well known (and not so well known) myths could be so fun and educational. A very interesting show to say the least. Adam and Jamie are a great duo, Adam is always fast with a sarcastic remark and Jamie couldn't care less and is always business (well, most of the time).
  • Parachute from hotel room

    2.5
    How exactly would Grant's parachute fit through a window, being so big and all?
  • YEAH, SCIENCE! (BOO, A&E!)
