A show of hands, who thought the Discovery Channel show MythBusters would last 15 seasons? MythBusters is hosted by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, along with Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara. The show first started on Discovery Channel in 2003 and for 14 seasons now, the show has inspired a generation to inquire, interact, and get involved with science. Since the show started over the past 11 years, the team has tested 946 myths, filmed over 7900 hours, created 840 explosions, and used 56,500 yards of duct tape, that’s a good career!
Now, season 15 of MythBusters begins tonight on the Discovery Channel! MythBusters uses a signature brand of explosive experimentation to prove or disprove popular myths, misconceptions, or legends. And if you are not watching the show, what is stopping you? New episodes will air on Thursday nights on Discovery Channel and some of the episodes for season 15 includes:
FIRE IN THE HOLE: The MythBusters tackle some of Hollywood’s favorite explosive scenarios. Could a hero really shoot a live grenade in midair and thus render it useless? Could you really contain a TNT explosion inside an ordinary object like a file cabinet or aquarium?
· HOUSEHOLD DISASTERS: The MythBusters test household myths. Could a vacuum cleaner explode while sucking up black powder? Could sunscreen scorch your skin? Could a piano crash through your roof? And finally, could an exploding water heater extinguish a house fire?
· COMMERCIAL MYTHS: The MythBusters go to vertigo-inducing heights to test out some commercial myths. Could you actually bob for an apple while jumping from a 100-foot high bungee cord? And from a viral video, could you really play a match of tennis while both players are standing on top of an airplane’s wing?
· ROAD RAGE: The MythBusters test three car crimes straight from Hollywood: the cliff top push, the two-wheel wipeout, and finally the Corvette barrel roll from “Wanted.”
Tonight, you get to see Fire In The Hole, and here is a preview clip!
