Another great season of interesting, fun and funny myths tested. Often the Mythbusters test historic accounts as well as urban legends but either way, they always do it with a sense of fun and exploration that's refreshing. Since they never seem to get bored, I never get bored. Highlights this season include End with a Bang, Alcohol Myths and Curving Bullets but they're all fun this season.
A warning to DVD set buyers: beware of the "collections." They're not full seasons but selected episodes repackaged into sets. Most of the advertising is very misleading so look carefully before you buy a box set. It might be random episodes instead of the full 30 of a complete season.

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."

As a science teacher, I found this investigation fascinating, and a useful starting point for various classroom science lessons and activities.

The contention about shadows having differing angles touches on the matter of objects casting different shadows, and not necessarily multiple sources of illumination.

The contention about the flag moving in a vacuum is addressed by the question of the absence of air resistance and its effect on persistent flag movement after it is turned.

The contention about well-preserved footprints is addressed by the behavior of pointed particles in a vaccum and its difference from rounded sand particles, on Earth, in the absence of water to bind them.

The contention about the astronaut being illuminated even when in the shadow of the lunar module touches on the 8% albedo (reflectance) of the illuminated lunar surface.

The contention about trick photography and astronauts hopping on the lunar surface touches on the nature of one-sixth gravity as well as questions about the ability of slowed-down photography to duplicate the astronauts' ambling.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn something in a fun way. The quality of the streaming was great and the purchase process was super easy. This show would be in the category with Modern Marvels and How It's Made. I am a science teacher and this is a show my students enjoy. Airing in a classroom is easy as can be.

Mythbusters with each passing year introduce new and some old myths that make it fun for us to learn and teach us something new about things we have thought about. I love how they make learning fun with the explosions and the funny things they do to make it more interesting for us as they go about confirming or busting a myth.

For me, I loved that most of the seasons were on Prime for a while, but after I watched those episodes I went and bought the other seasons! One note- I don't think you'll find HD much better than SD, so save some money and buy SD..

Mythbusters is a favorite show in our home. Our kids really enjoy watching this show with us. It has been entertaining to them at all ages and they are learning something of value at the same time. This show makes learning about science fun for them, it piqued their interest at a young age and it shows them practical applications for the math they are learning. This show highlights the value of all areas of learning from history and art to science and math.

Admittedly I'm a big fan of Mythbusters; I stumbled across their show a number of years ago and have seen every episode they've made. I find their approach to science and problem-solving engaging and fun. I didn't get much science in my education (professional musician) so I've learned a lot even from the silliest myths they bust.

One aspect of the show that's often overlooked is their persistently good demonstration of critical thinking and problem-solving. I think they set a fine example for young people; I'm just hoping their parents get them to pay attention!
