Storyline

Mythbusters takes myths, tall tales and urban legends and gives them the scientific treatment to determine their validity. Myths are proved true, probable, possible, improbable or busted. Often after the real-world practical tests have proved or debunked a Myth, the team will take the experiment to the extreme, many times using more modern technology than the myth could have used or upping the black powder for impressive explosions.

Goofs

In one episode they identify the "magic bullet theory" from JFK assassination lore was that a "magic" bullet, i.e. some kind of exotic ammunition, was used by a second assassin to kill JFK. However, the actual term "magic bullet theory" is a derisive term used by conspiracy theorists to refer to the Warren Commission's theory that a single bullet caused all of the non fatal wounds of JFK and Governor Connally.

Just love it, and you learn a lot
22 April 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A fine show, co-hosted by an up-for-anything redheaded seeming goofball (who's actually quite smart and occasionally capable of startling arrogance) and a muscular, mustachioed pain in the a**.

There's obviously tension between the hosts, but it seems to make for more effort and better work on all sides. (One exchange that made it to air: "Quit whining, you big baby"/"F*** off!"/Sound of off-camera things breaking).

They do much useful debunking, but the guys being competitive is what's the most fun about MB. I kinda wish the show hadn't promoted Kari, Tori and Grant to effective co-hosts, since it means less A&J, but the hosts may have real lives to get back to, and perhaps it's been discovered that they do better if they don't spend quite so much time together.
