MythBusters

2003-2016 Science

A pair of special effects experts collect and test popular myths, folklore, film scenes, internet videos and news stories through the use of the scientific method to see if there is any degree of truth behind them. The duo conduct experiments aiming to recreate the conditions for the original story and if the experiment fails under the said set up, they go a step further and create the conditions necessary for it to succeed. Myths are subsequently labelled as Busted, Plausible and Confirmed based on the outcome of the tests.
