Indiana Jones Special: Jan. 17, 2015

Adam LOVED this one, as you can imagine. Can a whip make your enemy drop his gun? Can you wrap a whip around a log and swing across a chasm? Could Indy have outrun a rolling boulder? Could Indy had survived a Mayan temple run through the various booby traps?

Blow It Out of the Water: July 18, 2015

Having come to represent the concept of 'overwhelming victory', this saying originally came from submarines in WW2 who were able to use torpedoes to literally blow an enemy ship up and out of the water. But is this really possible? And in the Breaking Bad season finale, Walter White took down every single bad guy with a simple crank shaft, remote control and M60. Potential reality or just fiction?

Adam and Jamie take aim at Hollywood's infallible hit men and their seemingly supernatural ability to take down a target.

Unfinished Business: Aug. 22, 2015

FOUR myths are addressed in THIS episode: Can you hold onto a grenade for longer than two hours? Can you really change a magazine in a blink-and-you-miss-it moment? Can video games make you better at real-life tasks, like golf? And can you really stop a car by using hollow spikes?

MythBusters vs. Jaws: Aug. 29, 2014

Star Wars 2: Sept. 5, 2015
