    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! Some information found here is thanks to http://www.mythbustersfanclub.com , who helped with episode ordering, season break downs, and other myth information :)moreless

    Discovery Channel (ended 2006)
    Through re-enactments of high profile cases involving the FBI, the show reveals how agents solve these crimes behind the scene. The show producers work with FBI special agents and examiners in high tech crime labs to portrait each case accurately. You will learn how the FBI protects the lives of Americans and brings the most notorious criminals to justice. The FBI was originally established to address crime that covered cities, counties, and spread across state lines. The country needed a federal law-enforcement entity to do those investigations. And over the years, as the country has grown and as the world, by the same token, has grown smaller, the FBI’s mission has changed to meet the various threats. The show is hosted by James Kallstrom, the former director in charge of the FBI's New York office. Along with The New Detectives, the FBI File is one of Discovery Channel's highest rated series. The FBI Files is also available on international televisions. Globally, key outlets include RTL 2 in Germany, Channel 5 in the UK, TVDanmark, and the Discovery Channel in the UK, Europe, Asia and Latin America.

    Discovery Channel (ended 2008)
    Cash Cab is yet another British import game show making the rounds on American television. Comedian Ben Bailey is the host and driver of the Cash Cab. Once in the cab, players are bombarded with trivia questions. The first four questions are worth $25 each, the next four $50, and the rest worth $100. In the third season, these are doubled to $50, $100 and $200 respectively. Depending on how long the trip is (Bailey will tell the fare beforehand how many blocks they are away from their destination), a contestant could earn over $1000 in the Cash Cab. However, a contestant must be careful about answering questions incorrectly or freezing. Each incorrect answer/freeze earns the contestant a strike, and three strikes cause the contestant to be kicked out of the cab without a dime. To help the contestant along, two help options are provided. One is a "Mobile Shoutout," during which the fare may make a 30-second phone call to ask a friend for help. The other is a "Street Shoutout," in which Bailey will pull the cab over to the curb and the fare will ask someone on the street to help answer the question. Along the way, if the contestant has earned more than $200 and the cab is stopped at a red light, the Red Light Challenge is initiated. The contestant is given a multi-answer question and has 30 seconds to give all the correct answers. If successful, $250 is added to their score. No penalty is given for failing to complete the challenge. Once the cab has reached its destination, Bailey offers a choice to his fare: either exit the cab with the money right then and there, or risk it all on a slightly more difficult video bonus question. If the contestant chooses to take the risk, he is shown a video clip and then asked a question about it. A correct answer doubles the contestant's winnings, but an incorrect answer leaves him with nothing.moreless
