    Mythbusters

    So, who's a fan?

    I've liked Mythbusters for quite awhile (along with a bunch of other Discovery Channel shows) and just saw the knew Alaska episode. Sinking the truck was quite interesting. And now we know that cabin fever is indeed possible....:P

    Great show. The new episode with them in alaska was great. I loved the cabin fever myth. Adam and Jamie are some funny charaters.

    I love this show. It and KP are two of my favorites.

    I, probably like many others, come for the science and stay for the explosions. :P I particularly like the experiment they did testing the effect of water on bullet stopping power. You scoff at that action movie-trick for years, but then realize, "Hey, they were right!"

    Ever since I saw that episode I've still been amazed that water can stop even the highest powered bullets. I can't really get that through my head. It's just cool!

    Adam and Jamie are great, and so are the others on the show. Their personality brings a lot to solving the myths, and is a large part of why I watch, in addition to the cool science and explosions.

    I think the first episode I saw was when Adam was testing the myth about ways to get out of a sinking car. It was really informative, actually.

    I love "Mythbusters," too.
    One of my favorite episodes (out of many! ) is the one where they debunked the superhero myths.

    Yes, it was. They showed us what works and what doesn't work when it comes to safely exiting a sinking car. I was intrigued by the lengths they went to to ensure a realistic enough simulation - including replacing the car's engine with its weight in ballast under the hood (necessary since they submerged the car in a local high school's swimming pool; they didn't want its water contaminated by any motor oil or other fluids leaking out of the vehicle).
