Show Summary

Did a Medieval Chinese astrologer make it into space by strapping rockets to his chair and setting them off? Just how hard IS it to find a needle in a haystack? Can you in fact go insane by having water drip on your forehead?

These are just a few of the myths, urban legends, and improbable sayings that the Mythbusters try to figure out. Comprised of special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Heineman - as well as their mottley crew of Mythbuilders, Mythterns, and resident 'crash test dummy' Buster - they don't just tell the myths, they put them to the test to see which ones are possible, and which ones are just plain bunk.

    For this final hour of the television icon that is MythBusters, the five hosts are reunited for one last hurrah! Deep within M5, Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman, Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara join forces once more to together give a suitably epic, enlightening and emotional finale to the best science show on television.

    Since 2002, Adam and Jamie have used science to separate fact from fiction in spectacular style! But, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end and MythBusters is no exception. Luckily, the guys are going out with a bang and then some: an RV gets blown to kingdom come, Buster goes supersonic, Adam takes the most wild ride imaginable and ... well, Cement Truck. It all boils down to a cement truck filled with 5,000 pounds of ANFO as the MythBusters sign off in style.

    In this last ever revisit, Adam and Jamie return to right their wrongs. First they bust out their drifting moves to find out whether drifting is faster than driving -- on dirt! Then they return to the ultimate fan favorite - What is Bulletproof - as they put lighters and fish tanks in the firing line. Finally, there's fire in the hole as the guys test if it's really possible that you can survive two explosions by standing directly in between them.

    In their 14 years, the MythBusters have used more than 3,500 human guinea pigs, and in this special, they pay homage to each! First, Jamie and Adam summon up an army of 200 zombies to determine the ultimate weapon when the apocalypse comes. Then, using 120 shopping volunteers, the MythBusters find out the best way to wait in line at the store: Is it the 'pick a lane' method or the more modern serpentine?

    When it comes to destroying cars, the MythBusters are experts, and in this episode, they're going out with a bang! First, Adam sees if you can really lift up a car with nothing but a humble vacuum, before Jamie then tries to flatten a car using nothing but an absolutely massive load of C4!

    MythBusters - S2018E8

    This episode takes on two viral videos. First, is it possible to fire shrimp from an air cannon through a cloud of flour, shower of egg wash, then breadcrumbs before a fireball crisps them into the perfect tempura on a plate? Second, can an underwater explosive charge juice the inside of a piece of fruit or vegetable while leaving the exterior completely undamaged?

    This season, Jamie and Adam try something they've never done before: an Implosion caused by a vacuum. The tall tale goes that a freight train tank car was being steam cleaned when a rainstorm let loose. The engineers made the mistake of sealing the container full of hot steam and headed home. The rain cooled the tank car, the steam condensed and contracted, and the resulting pressure differential caused the massive steel car to crumple like a soda can. Is it possible? The MythBusters devote an entire episode and embark on the biggest logistical operation in their history to find out.

    The MythBusters celebrate their explosive history with two spectacular big bangs. In MacGyver Cement Truck, our mullet-wearing hero discovers a mail truck full of TNT. Thinking quickly (as he does), MacGyver has a nearby cement truck dump its load onto the truck to smother the bomb. But would it work in real life? Then in Hovercraft Hijinks the guys tackle the one explosive technology they've yet to come across: landmines. Can a minefield really be safely traversed in a hovercraft?

    In this last ever revisit, Adam and Jamie return to right their wrongs. First they bust out their drifting moves to find out whether drifting is faster than driving -- on dirt! Then they return to the ultimate fan favorite - What is Bulletproof - as they put lighters and fish tanks in the firing line. Finally, there's fire in the hole as the guys test if it's really possible that you can survive two explosions by standing directly in between them.

First, Jamie and Adam summon up an army of 200 zombies to determine the ultimate weapon when the apocalypse comes. Then, using 120 shopping volunteers, the MythBusters find out the best way to wait in line at the store: Is it the 'pick a lane' method or the more modern serpentine?

    This season, Jamie and Adam try something they've never done before: an Implosion caused by a vacuum. The tall tale goes that a freight train tank car was being steam cleaned when a rainstorm let loose. The engineers made the mistake of sealing the container full of hot steam and headed home. The rain cooled the tank car, the steam condensed and contracted, and the resulting pressure differential caused the massive steel car to crumple like a soda can. Is it possible? The MythBusters devote an entire episode and embark on the biggest logistical operation in their history to find out.
