Season 13 Episode 6
Adam and Jamie test whether a mattress can really cushion a watery wipeout. Meanwhile, Kari, Tory and Grant tackle a blast from the past as they test if cannonballs made of stone can really cause carnage.
Find out if one poppy seed bagel can tilt the results of a drug test and whether balloons can carry a lawn chair. Is a body covered in gold paint able to breathe, or is this a glamorous way to die?
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.
Mythbusters? Misnamed... Sometimes They don't just BUST myths, and not everything they tackle IS a myth... They include everything from movie stunts, urban legends, old sayings, and much more. Not just Myths... With that said, they often CONFIRM whatever it is they are testing, or sometimes, it's a PLAUSIBLE conclusion. I find that BUSTED myths (etc.) add up to about 60/65% of the total... And then, there is the stuff that doesn't make it on air, either because of airtime considerations, technical reasons, (glitches) or, and this is the kicker, they can't get a repeatable conclusion. I've seen Adam Savage talk about this a couple of times. (Elsewhere, not on the show) The Scientific Method demands that any conclusion be repeatable, & that anyone following the same exact procedure should also get the same result(s). When they themselves can't get the same result twice, they can't make a conclusion, so it's cut. What MY beef is:13 episodes! That's a season!? Who are they kidding? That's HALF a season & I'm not paying full price for it. Are they getting lazy, tired, or taking us for granted, or are the execs the ones who are? 26 shows count as a season... So quit with the 'split' season & then naming it as 2 seasons!
