I use it as a teaching tool to make science fun. The kids make prediction before hand if they think the experiment will be busted, confirmed or plausible. Then we also review the scientific method thorughout the show. It's fun way to wrap up a unit when the episode/experiement ties in with what we were studying.

These shows are always fun to watch. Plus we get to learn something in them also. I can recall a few times a conversation contained "no, that was busted in Mythbusters"....

The show & content from Discovery was fantastic... AMAZON PRIME TOOK IT AWAY.

THIS WAS A PRIMARY REASON WE HAD PRIME WAS TO GET BETTER QUALITY CONTENT, NOW IT LOOKS LIKE WE WILL NOT RENEW. The increase in dues, loss in quality programming.... looks like its time to lose prime... too bad, we liked them before they did this...

As usual, the myths vary in complexity but the crew always keep it interesting. The ever-present element of the joy of science in the pursuit of the silly (and social, and historic) is one of the reasons to watch this show and since they got rid of the interpersonal friction element first season, pretty much any season is going to have great stuff.
Only one warning to newcomers to the DVDs, though. Be very careful when shopping: the majority of the shows came out only in "collections" which are NOT full seasons. They're annoying, selected episode versions of the show, and have fewer per set. And as much as I love Mythbusters, I admit watching the same 8 shows over and over and over eventually loses even my interest. Look for complete seasons.

I would normally give this show 4 or 5 stars. It is just plain fun to watch. My rating depicts the sudden and surprising need to pay for the show without any kind of notice. We have been watching these old episodes for free for several months. My young grandson loves to watch them together with me. All of the sudden this week, we now have to pay for every episode, when we have been watching them for free previously. This makes no sense to us. This is not the first time this has happened to us with our Prime membership......it's like the bate and switch......or pay and get screwed....

Believe it or not, I am a college-educated great grandmother that enjoys watching this show. My grandson asked me to view it with him a few years ago, and I find myself watching all the shows in every season available. Fascinating and wholesome viewing.
