Editorial Reviews

Ever wonder if human teeth could stop a speeding bullet? You're about to find out! Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage are back to test a host of the most insane and dangerous myths ever dreamed of. No theory is safe from the scrutiny of the MythBusters, who take on the Hindenburg disaster, Tesla's Earthquake Machine, the Mentos mint-Diet Coke Internet myth and much, much more! From the wacky (can a hurricane blow the feathers off a chicken?) to the death-defying, Hyneman and Savage go where no reasonable people have gone before in separating the reality from the ridiculous!

EPISODES: Helium Football: Field test helium-filled footballs to find out if they stay aloft higher and longer than regulation air-filled balls. Then face a firing line to discover the bullet-halting capability of human teeth.

Bullets Fired Up: See if celebratory bullets shot into the air can kill when they return to Earth, and find out whether low-grade vodka can be transformed into a top-shelf spirit with an ordinary household water filter.

Killer Whirlpool: Literature is filled with nautical tales of ships being sucked to deathly ocean depths by killer whirlpools, but could such a thing really happen? Then discover whether snowplows can blow a car off the road or if that?s just a snow job.

Crimes and Myth-demeanors 2: Test the most high-tech home alarm systems on the market, including stripping down to birthday suits, getting sprayed with dry-ice and donning a Big Bird-like yellow rug to evade burglary detection.

Deadly Straw: Test burning barnyard myths like whether a hurricane can blow the feathers of a chicken.

Earthquake Machine: Take on Nikolai Tesla, one of the greatest scientists and inventor of all time. Unbelievably coming up with a working prototype of Tesla's Earthquake Machine, the pair put a California bridge to the test.

Diet Coke and Mentos: Inspired by an Internet myth, the MythBusters pair various sodas and candies together until they create the most explosive cocktail possible. Then: Can putting a postage stamp on a helicopter's rotor blades send it into a tailspin?

Anti-Gravity Device: Celebrate the magic of the holiday season by loading strings of hot lights on a Christmas tree to see how long it takes for the tree to burst into flames.

Firearms Folklore: Test the likelihood that a criminal's bullet could hit and then jam the chamber of a policeman's revolver and whether a sniper could kill another by shooting straight down the enemy gun scope.

Holiday Special: Yodel to an avalanche in this special episode, then exhaustively test for the best Christmas tree-water cocktail to keep the needles from falling off.

Pirate Special: Test period swords, cannons, guns and the laundry-cleaning capabilities of grog.

Hindenburg Mystery: It's generally accepted that the hydrogen keeping the Hindenburg afloat sparked the infamous inferno, but could other chemical reactions actually have caused the blaze?

Underwater Car: The team willingly recreates many people's worst nightmare: being trapped in a car submerged in water after a crash.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but... December 27, 2007
These guys are awesome, this show is about one of maybe five things on TV I actually watch.

The only thing that keeps me from giving this set the five stars is that the order of the episodes seems to be broken up, they refer to shows not on any set I own and seem to have skipped over others. Why Discovery can't just release their shows in seasons like normal people is beyond me.

But that's just a gripe with the publishing, as for the content itself, five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Cheap! November 26, 2007
Mythbusters is a great show for everyone! The hosts, along with their team, crack myths and urban legends using science. This DVD Set is a great value for the money. 4 Discs for $20. I also found it was much cheaper than the Boxed versions sold on the discovery channel site which retailed for $50 each. The show is funny and you will learn from it whether you realize at the time or not. Great for kids, teenagers, and adults. I feel like it is a parallel to the fun science shows of my youth like "Bill Nye the Science Guy".

My grandson is addicted to Mythbusters. We were constantly recording them and filling up the storage space on the DVR. Now the shows are available whenever he wants to watch them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jamie wants a big boom. Gotta love it. January 7, 2008
Boys will be boys, but not for getting the girls. To quote a friend who saw an episode of Mythbusters, "why?". Answer: Why not. Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, (not for getting their lunatic fringe cohorts from later episodes Troy, Carrie and Grant), live out and get paid for basically playing and having to much fun. Testing, smashing, destroying, blowing up and answering questions that many have queried, but most do not have the time, talent or money to follow through. These wonderful guys and girl take scientific study and testing to a base reality. Prove it! They take projects from a point of imagination to conception. Making safety and planning a must and priority. In junior high, high school and later at my university they/we/I only touched on a very few actual experiments. I hope every science teacher in this country shows these wonderful modern day scientists and explorers to their students. The power of imagination. Some will say that Mythbusters is just TV, not science or exploration, they would be wrong and most likely just jealous. Jamie does sum it up for many of us guy dude explorer scientific want to be types, "Jamie wants a big boom" :-). Gotta love it. So to Jamie, Adam, Carrie, Troy, Grant and their Discovery crew and team. Thanks and safe journeys. Cheers
