Video: Exploding Steak Myth

Video: Driving Blind Myth

Video: Moon Landing Hoax Myth

Video: Catching An Arrow Myth


* Wednesday, August 6 at 9PM - Can you tenderize steak with explosives? Adam and Jamie see if tough steak can be made melt-in-your-mouth tender using high explosives. The myth starts with a blast - and ends with a better one, as the team hones their technique. Then, Kari, Grant and Tory take a test drive to see if driving angry changes your car's fuel emission.


* Wednesday, August 13 at 9PM - They're exciting, funny and we can't wait to pass them on to our friends, but can we truly believe every viral video we see? Adam and Jamie try to replicate a popular video where a car is blasted 15 feet into the air with the water pressure from ten fire hoses. Then, they take on a video that shows a tinfoil boat floating inside what looks like an empty fish tank. And Tory, Kari and Grant find out if you can create a cannon using just sawdust and a road flare, and investigate the internet phenomenon of fainting goats.


* Wednesday, August 20 at 9PM - Ninjas and MythBusters go together like matches and gunpowder - a match made in heaven. In this special, Jamie and Adam return to a familiar test: in their first ninja episode, the guys thought they'd demonstrated that an arrow could not be caught mid-air, but fans disagreed. Soto answer the question once and for all, they enlist the world's foremost arrow-catching ninja, Anthony Kelly. Other ninja myths include whether there's really a punching technique that can floor an opponent with only a one-inch lead in, and if an underwater blow pipe could really be utilized to stealthily fell an opponent.


* Wednesday, August 27 at 9PM - The MythBusters take on one of their biggest, most controversial myths ever: Could the July 1969 moon landing have been an elaborate hoax? First, Adam and Jamie focus on photos, testing the theory that twoof NASA's most famous images were shot in a studio. Then, they investigate the myth that to get the classic "low lunar gravity look" the government shot the footage in a studio and then simply slowed it down. And Grant, Tory and Kari take on the claims that the footage of footprints and flags flapping had to have been faked.
