    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!moreless

    Discovery Channel
    Hosted by reformed ex-burglars, Matt Johnston and Jon Douglas Rainey, It Takes a Thief tests the home-security of the average home owner by staging actual burglaries to reveal security shortcomings. In each episode, Matt and Jon search for a location to rob. In the first season, Matt would speak to the owners and convinced them that it would be a good idea to have their house robbed. Matt would then have the owners show him what security they did have in place. Then the homeowners would lock up and would join Matt in the production van to watch the break in on closed circuit TV. In the second season, the producers would approach the owners and in most cases, Jon would break in while the owners weren't home and Matt would watch the break in alone. The homeowners would then be shown the tapes upon returning home. In both seasons, after a walkthrough of the house, the homeowners had the opportunity to meet Jon and have him answer their questions of how and why. After all of the property was returned and the mess cleaned up, Matt would return with a team of security experts then give the property a full security makeover complete with everything from locks to landscaping. A few weeks later, Matt and Jon returned and Jon tested the new security system by attempting to break in once again. After premiering in 2005, It Takes a Thief ran for 2 seasons and is currently on hiatus.moreless
