Each episode, the MythBusters, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, two special effects experts with more than 30 years of experience, methodically set out to bust three urban legends. And they don't just explain if something's true or false: through trial and error, they demonstrate it. Sometimes they crash things, sometimes they blow things up -- all in the name of science.
The MythBusters go underground to test if a sewer drain full of combustible gas is ignited - would it turn the innocent manhole cover into a missile? Meanwhile, Kari, Grant and Tory put truck bedliner to the test - is it bite, crash, and bomb proof?
