Editorial Reviews

Adam and Jamie uncover the truth behind popular myths and legends by mixing scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create a signature style of experimentation.

This Paley Center for Media live event honors "MythBusters," the scientific reality series in which Hollywood special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman test the veracity of popular urban legends.

Scott Collins (staff writer, The Los Angeles Times) moderates co-hosts Savage and Hyneman.

The panelists touch on such topics as: their interaction with President Barack Obama for the episode "President's Challenge"; the eight-day filming "formula" for episodes; and the authenticity of the experiments on the show.

Questions from the audience then lead to a discussion of the following topics among others: the one experiment that the show hasn't dared to film; why some experiments are retooled and then retested; and methods to avoid injury during experiments.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I enjoyed this interview with Adam and Jamie quite a bit, It was nice to hear them outside the confines of the Mythbusters set. There are no shocking revelations or deep dirt on anything or anyone, just some fun behind the scenes chatter with Adam and Jamie being themselves. I watched this for free as part of Amazon Prime and I would recommend it if you are able to see it for free. If you have to pay for this I would only suggest it for the Mythbusters completist who has every other episode and special. These guys are at their best when they are using both their minds and their hands and to just see them sit there is a lot less fun than watching a build.

The Paley Center invites the cast of top shows to come and talk about their show, and having seen a dozen of the Paley videos, I find them entertaining and informative. This Mythbusters interview video is among my favorites. Adam and Jamie are their relaxed and funny selves, and they get to talk about the show in ways you don't hear about in a typical interview. They also took audience questions, which was great fun. You quickly realize how appealing Mythbusters is to more than just adolescent boys; plenty of girls, moms, dads, teens, and grandparents enjoy the Mythbusters too.

There should be more Q & A programs like this about MythBusters. It's pretty cool seeing these guys outside of their element. Personally, I think Adam should have his own talk show.

It's good to see Adam and Jamie outside their show. I feel they held back just a little but all in all if you're a Mythbuster's fan it is a must watch!

Wonderful, as always, just wonderful. This is really just the guys talking things over--but lots of background info, there. I liked it.
