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.

The name says it all.
18 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is nothing but fun. You can only hope that some of the individuals who pass on these urban myths will watch this and start using there head when it comes to passing on these ridiculous stories. That being said, it's a lot of fun watching these guys use science, engineering, and art to debunk, or in some cases prove possible some the stories we've all heard while growing up. Well worth watching, for all ages.
