It looks like MythBusters fans will have a big explosion to look forward to in the upcoming season:
They were trying to literally "knock the socks off" a mannequin by igniting 500 pounds of ammonium nitrate. But the explosion was a lot bigger than they expected.
The explosion was so big it shook the town of Esparto, knocking Stephens off her couch and breaking her front window.
Dirty Jobs chase of the Greenland shark already has me excited about this year's Shark Week. MythBusters is breaking out a 2-hour bonanza featuring robotic sharks, medieval armor, and dog urine. Checkout the slideshow for more photos of the Shark Week episode

The plane took off! To quote Adam: "I've read literally thousands of pages, of vitriolic commentary and arguments about airplanes on a conveyor belt, but nowhere did I find anyone who'd put an airplane on a conveyor belt."

It was mostly an excuse to explode 200lbs of TNT beneath the water.
For this episode, the MythBusters blitzed through several myths submitted by their fans
