Mythbusters 5

Image 1 / 10

Mythbusters returns for a fifth series, this is the amazing popular culture series that is taking the world by storm! An offbeat series investigating the bizarre claims of urban legends and modern misconceptions, this series doesn't just retell the stories... it puts them to the test! Each week special-effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman take on three myths and use modern-day science to show you what's real and what's fiction. That's right, they do more than explain how something may or may not be scientifically possible. Through trial and error they actually demonstrate it. In each episode, Adam and Jamie use scientific experiments, special effects and Buster - one very abused crash-test dummy - to show how many urban myths don't stand up to the test.
