I love Mythbusters, but I hate cable TV. Apparently these two facts are in diametric opposition. Instead of just offering an easy, consistent, and reliable alternative to watching episodes as they air, Discovery sees fit to tinker with their licensing agreements every single season. I've bought passes to the last two seasons since switching from the iTunes store to Amazon and I will continue to do so. I just wish that Discovery's lawyers could get their act together! There is simply no good reason that episodes should not become available for purchase the day after they air. Other networks have NO problem with this.....

This mythbusters was really good. It was probably the best I've seen so far, because both teams were very creative. The trio found a way to obscure the visual camera and the thermal camera, better than in the movie myth. I also liked Jaimie's beefed up flamethrower and Adam's more powerful fire extinguisher using water. (submitted by a 9 year old megafan)

My son (who is now 10) discovered Mythbusters a little over a year ago. I was so excited to find access to many of their seasons through my Prime membership. Not only does he enjoy them, I do, too. And I'm always happy to find a program that combines science and entertainment in a high-quality way that makes the educational value go down like it's coated with a spoonful of sugar. Combine that with a lot of really funny moments and the sheer pleasure of watching a bunch of people doing things they really love - well, what could be better?!

Discovery Channel continues the evolution of MythBusters as an entertainment production while retaining the educational and scientific value. You can't help but love these geeky guy and girl next door scientist/hack/kluge/inventors. Wish there were more episodes though. But, I am just a bit greedy that way when I need a MythBuster fix.

More myths, more explosions, more science, and more fun this season in Mythbusters. I've watched all of the episodes through Amazon Prime's video streaming service. This is a great purchase for any fan of the show AND there are NO ANNOYING COMMERCIALS. Great program for kids AND parents.

Why am I titling a review of Mythbusters with Burn Notice? Because its one of the famous Mythbusters shows about another show, in this case the great Burn Notice. Adam and Jamie do their usual fantastic job of making physics fun, doing their best to bounce bullets into a moving vehicle through the undercarriage.

And let's not forget the booms and bombs from Carrie, Grant, and Torry.

Great episode.

They are funny, talented and thought-provoking. I think these shows are some of the best illustrations of the need to experiment, use common sense and put your ideas on the line. I bet many kids are turned onto science, logic and the deep satisfaction of not taking someone else's word for what is true or accurate by watching. Plus, these guys are just plain fun to watch! They are the 3 Stooges of the scientific method. (Not a bad thing in my humble opinion.)

This was a fun episode where the team did a great job with the duct tape, but it wasn't as science heavy as their best episodes, and I missed the rest of the team. But, if you ever thought about all the stuff you can do with duct tape, or wondered about being stranded on a desert island, it was a cool episode.
