A cool concept, but will it work?
It seems to me that the Mythbusters are now grabbing at low hanging fruit. I haven’t been a fan for a few years, and for good reason; the episodes are boring and the team’s personality as a whole has just become annoying. Every single time something mildly interesting happens they all erupt into this cult-like roar of “HOLY SHIT, THAT WAS AMAZING, HAHAHAHAHA…”
I can’t even tell you how many times I was just left sitting there, holding my diet grape soda, leaving my tasty sandwich on its plate, just to rewind and see what I missed… Nothing. I missed nothing. One of them dropped something on to something, then something happened. Yada, yada, yada…
Contrary to what they say, they ran out of interesting ideas a long time ago. And even if they have a million more “myths” to bust, I really do not care. Their presentation is now geared towards the reality TV crowd and their scientific validity is essentially ruined.
You guys may disagree, and that is totally fine. Maybe some of you can change my view in the comments. I just hope Heisenberg and Pinkman don’t show up. Gonna be trouble.
