Yep, glad to see it back. Even the worst of Mythbusters is at least moderately interesting, it's a reliable show for me.

The good thing about this run is that they've gone back to basic busting and not all that stupid show tie-in stuff.

Well, okay, BUT, bobbing for apples? Really? At least the "B" team didn't play us the entire commercial for the tennis match myth.

I though the bungie cord apple bob was fine, good example of a myth that was out there to be tested. Didn't have a problem with the tennis volley either.

Again, this stuff is what they do and is way better than trying to see how many fake zombies they can 'kill' just because AMC wanted a tie-in.

Really enjoyed the last couple of episodes. The traffic myths were great. I've always heard about the "butterfly effect" and wondered if those idiots weaving in and out of traffic really ever got anywhere.

I also liked the ones studying subconscious reactions to sexuality. Interesting stuff and both episodes had several laughs. They need more of these. Big booms are great, but give us some actual myths rather than movie/tv tie-ins.

I loved it that the women tipped DD Kari 40% more and the men only 30 % more.

Hmmm. My DVR didn't realize this was on anymore, it appears. Thanks for resurrecting the thread so I can re-program!
