Exploding Lighter: Find out if leaving a small butane cigarette lighter in your car on a sunny day can cause your vehicle to explode into flames. Next, the MythBusters try and shoot down some popular "Gunslinger" myths, such as, "is it possible to shoot a hole clean through a tossed coin"?

Confederate Steam Gun: The team creates a mythic Civil War-era weapon: a steam-powered machine gun rumored to have fired 400 rounds a minute at a 300-yard range. But could it shoot to kill? And find out if you really can trip up the results in a polygraph test.
James Bond Special - Part 1: See the MythBusters create a watch that can deflect a bullet like Bond's could in Live and Let Die, and find out if it's possible to blow up a propane tank by shooting it with a handgun. Then the team recreates 007's most spectacular speed-boat getaways and more killer spy-movie magic.
James Bond Special - Part 2: In Part 2, Jamie and Adam pack high explosives into an ordinary ballpoint pen, create a deadly bowler hat to see if it could really slice the head off a statue and build giant steel jaws to see if a metal-mouthed super villain could really chomp through steel cables.

However, I have an issue with the way Discovery is compiling these DVD series. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. In the first two collections they brought out, the episodes included were completely arbitrary. At least this series has a "theme:" Big Blasts, but still, why can't they just bring these episodes out as a SEASON like most other TV productions? The damage is done now, so I guess from here on out we'll end up with collection after collection of Mythbusters where we'll have NO IDEA what we'll get until we open the box.
