MYTHBUSTERS To Premiere New Episodes Starting Next Week!
By Merrill Barr on July 2, 2014
Including the surprise Legend of Korra announcement, it seems we’re in the age of come-out-of-nowhere season premieres, the latest culprit being Mythbusters. Though, to be fair, Discovery is always a little inconsistent with the airing of everyone’s favorite urban legend based docu-series. For the latest run, the series will feature a minimum of four episodes that, according to TV by the Numbers, include the following:
FIRE IN THE HOLE: The Mythbusters tackle some of Hollywood’s favorite explosive scenarios. Could a hero really shoot a live grenade in midair and thus render it useless? Could you really contain a TNT explosion inside an ordinary object like a file cabinet or aquarium?
HOUSEHOLD DISASTERS: The Mythbusters test household myths. Could a vacuum cleaner explode while sucking up black powder? Could sunscreen scorch your skin? Could a piano crash through your roof? And finally, could an exploding water heater extinguish a house fire?
COMMERCIAL MYTHS: The MythBusters go to vertigo-inducing heights to test out some commercial myths. Could you actually bob for an apple while jumping from a 100-foot high bungee cord? And from a viral video, could you really play a match of tennis while both players are standing on top of an airplane’s wing?
ROAD RAGE: The MythBusters test three car crimes straight from Hollywood: the cliff top push, the two-wheel Wipeout, and finally the Corvette barrel roll from “Wanted.”
The dynamic building duo that is Adam and Jamie also took to twitter to announce the premiere:

What better way to spend the middle month of summer than with the Mythbusters who, let’s be honest, can make Michael Bay blush with explosion envy.
Mythbusters premieres Thursday, July 10th at 9/8c on Discovery.
