  • Supersized Myths!!! Awesome

    This is a supersized mythbusters. 747 myths, Wakeboarding, Jet Assisted Chevy, and other myths. I thought the 747 myths were awesome and great wakeboarding myths. The only reason I did not give this episode a 10 was the Jet assisted Chevy Blewup!! Although it was awesome I would of liked to see what would of happen to the Chevy if it did not explode. Hey, but in science everyone makes mistakes. I thought it was so cool how the school bus and car got hangtime and flipped end over end. The wakeboarding myths were surprising because I thought Tory would miss like he did on the lake. Overall the episode was great.moreless
  • Adam and Jamie set the mythbusting bar up to the next level. 747's engines were put to the test when a taxi, school bus, and a small palne try to pas threw the air flow. Adam and Jamie test if sharks sense sound and if sharks are threatened by dolphins.moreless

    This episode wasn't all that exciting. Sharks are sometimes attacked by dolpihns. Of course, they will flee from the dolphins! Tori, Grant, and Kari try to see if they can water ski behind a cruise ship. It's confirmed, but not RECOMMENDED!( Don't try this at home.)Anyways, Adam and Jamie always do the best of their abilities. They are the best (and only) mythbusters on TV. Kudos to Tori and the others. They always have Jamie's and Adam's backs. I was surprised that sound didn't attrack the shark. They aalways come to the sound of a injured seal or something like that. Sharks are really attracked to blood because of their strong senses.moreless
