    After the horrible Hollywood on Trail episode this show picks its up from its heals with this wonderful episode that deal with one classic myth: “Can an unassisted human voice break a wine glass?” A myth that has been shown throughout TV shows and commercials in various means, but never solidly proved, until now. While an old episode of Hollywood Squares tried it, but it failed when J.J. Bullet broke the glass before the woman singer could even do it. Leaving the question unanswered, but until now, for the Mythbusters’ researchers have claimed that if they did it, they would be the first to prove or disprove the myth.

    In the process of confirming or busting the myth they brought in the heavy hitters in the name of Jamie Vendera, rock singer and voice coach , who himself have claimed that he had broke wine glasses with his own voice with help. Like his claim he broke the wine glass with help and after that came the big test could he or Adam or Jamie can do with their own natural voice? For Adam, just like Jamie Vendera did, he broke the wine glass in a matter of seconds with help. After a number of tries from both Jamie Vendera and Adam they did it. What made this episode so good was the fact that it can in the right time, after a horrible episode, and in the fake that Adam, who has a history in the show to losing to Jamie, one up Jamie in this one with the fact that he broke his glass while Jamie couldn’t do it.

    While Adam and Jamie were excellent in this episode, who really stood out in the episode was Troy, a member of the build team, whom efforts in the show were clearly hidden until this episode really stood out in the episode with the fact that he made a antiquated jet engine out of gas grill, with the Shop Vac turn Jet Engine myth. I know that if his skills were up to par, he wouldn’t be in the show, but one has to understand that none of his builds in the past episodes never really stood out until now. I hope that this episode will silence all of the critics that state that Troy shouldn’t belong in the show, if you still think that way, watch this episode and you will see that he clearly belongs with this show.

    The Rolling Stone proverb one was a decent one that felt that it was their just full up the three myth quota that the show normally has. There was nothing in the myth that clearly shined as with the other two did.moreless
