Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman are special effects experts who will stop at nothing to find the truth. Using modern day science, they put everyday myths and urban legends to the test to determine what's busted... and what's confirmed. Joined by fellow MythBusters Tory, Kari and Grant, his team is always ready to take it to the next level... with explosive results!

Join them this series as the whole team crank the danger up to the max, by including a myth from the top drawer of dangerdom! In Dodge a Bullet, Adam and Jamie test whether you can ever jump out of the way of a bullet. In more detail, can you dodge a sniper? Turn round, face him head on and trust your instincts? The moment you see the muzzle flash from his rifle, you leap as fast and as far as possible and dive to escape the speeding bullet. But is that really possible? On a less cut-throat note the team look into the Hollywood lighting myth to unearth the truth behind the scene in 'The Mummy', where a bunch of archaeologists use ancient mirrors to project sunlight into a deep underground tomb - turning darkness to daylight. Is that possible? Our fearless Mythbusters tomb raiders pull out all stops to unearth the truth.
