I love watching and rewatching Mythbusters, so imagine my surprise when season 4, which used to be free with prime, wasn't any more. Good thing it and just about everything else on prime is still on Netflix, but that makes me wonder if prime membership is even worth it...

One of my favorite shows on TV. However, up until a day or two ago the first 9 seasons were availiable for Prime members to stream for free. This is no longer the case and unlike Adam, I'm decidedly displeased.

Depressed about season 19 being the last one. My entire adult life has had one constant thing - the Mythbusters. I even visited M5 once. You could call me a super fan. You can learn a lot form them about life and science. They have invaded every aspect of the American culture and I am sad to see them go. I watched there show so many times my son has to watch it every time before he goes to bed. Thanks to them my son loves science and math. It is fun to watch them stumble through things as they learn - you learn with them, it is like a voyage of discovery. What they have achieved with this show has expanded human knowledge for the better. This show will be sadly missed, it was not just fun to watch be you learned a lot and some of of there experiments save the life's. Before the Mythbusters the only good show to watch about science was Bill Nye the Science Guy and you didn't learn a lot from him but you sure did learn a lot from the Mythbusters. I wish that the Discovery Channel wood keep the show going for another 19 seasons. "Thank you Jamie Adams Tory grant and kari. It was fun to watch you guys learn can achieve new things in your lives I wish you well and anything you do for the rest your lives thank you."

The shows are OK, but what's the deal with charging for what was free? The first 6-7 seasons (or more) used to be free with Prime. Now Prime goes up 25% and the "Free" shows are no longer free. Time to re-think Prime.

I purchased this to show to my summer school class which was studying American Folklore, including the story of Benjamin Franklin being struck by lightning while flying a kite. Educational and entertaining as always. This was a worthwhile purchase!

My only complaint is to Discovery for not formatting these episodes in HD. They have cropped the SD with a letter box. There is some odd artifact clipping at the very tip top of the screen (you don't notice it most of the time) where they cropped the SD format.
