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!

    • Sad to see it go, but they went on their own terms.

      The final season was really awesome. They managed to go really big, before going home for good. It's good to see a show end on its own terms, rather than be canceled abruptly after overstaying its welcome.

      Mythbusters has given over a decade and a half of solid entertainment, with a mildly scientific twist. For those who've never seen it, or have yet to finish the series in its entirety, it's well worth the watch!moreless
    • The Pinnacle of Discovery Channel

      This was probably the most-watched show on Discovery Channel (I'm guessing), and it was very educational for both adults and youngsters alike. Although, the show has gone a bit downhill but I'm still giving it a high score because of what it used to be: awesome to watch.
    • Its gone.....

      After "Going back to the roots" I have to say: It was going.... going..... and is gone....

      If the old version of mythbusters was a almost perfectly home-cooked meal, watching episodes now is like getting microwave-food from a gas station...

      I say its busted....

    • Bad Science

      The latest episode (Accidental Ammo) was the last nail in the coffin for me. They took a hypothesis (the myth) and cherry picked the "data" to support their "theory". Then they ignored the boring results and figured out how to "tweak" the results to create the most "dramatic" TV. Oh, and the horrible puns.

      Jamie: "Good science is hard,

      Adam: "Then let's just blow stuff
    • If it anin't broke don't fix it, but they went a head and broke it anyway!

      Wow, the new format is a great example of taking a great show and screwing it up. The old format with the 3 build team members and the "Stars" was GREAT variety and they actually seemed to try to prove or disprove a real myth. Now it's Just Adam and Jammie blowing up one thing or another. How does proving a movie stunt mean anything, it's a movie and they are supposed to be stupid and nonsense.

      I find it hard to watch the new format, they have lost a viewer, just another example of taking it one step to far, ruined a good show.moreless
