Mythbusters and M5i

Blame it on a steady diet of Mr. Wizard when I was young, but I like nerdy shows with a mean science streak in them. When I heard about Mythbusters, I thought it was just another urban legend show until I caught an episode and saw how they conducted their tests. It ranks right up there with Rough Science and Junkyard Wars in terms of good basic science plus ingenuity. The recent new years marathon let me catch up with the whole season, and I’m looking forward to seeing them try to reproduce the classic JATO story in an upcoming episode.

Their warehouse looks like a fun place and it didn’t take much digging to find the site of Jaime’s special effects company where they film the experiments. They’ve got a pretty impressive portfolio of past work that explains all the movie posters posted around their shop.
