Review: MythBusters

There really is not enough said about this wonderfully funny docucomedy done by the Discovery Channel. If you have never watched this show you are missing a lot. The founders of the show Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, special effects wizards, take us on a wild and wacky trip to investigate if something is actually true or not with most of the common myths that we might know.

They have confirmed and busted myths from all over the place with the help of their builders Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara. Yes the show can be geekie but what guy would not want to be educated by Kari and what woman would not want to look dreamy eyed at Grant. Those 2 are not the reason for watching the show but it might at least get you interested enough to watch it.

Once you have seen the show you will always want to watch it again and again as they show you how they confirm or bust any myth they come across. Keep one thing in mind though, don’t do anything that they show you at home as they are “What you call professionals”. That’s what they say ever episode and before any experiment that they show you.

The program is intelligent, informative and fun to watch and you will come away feeling smarter for watrching it and be wondering where the hour went. I know I try to watch them every week and you should check your local listings to find out when the show will come on for you to experience the laughs and learning that is only Mythbusters. Even President Obama watches them.
