Season 2017 / Episode 6 and airs on 21 December 2017 02:00
MythBusters is a science entertainment television program created by Peter Rees and produced by Australia's Beyond Television Productions for the Discovery Channel. The series is transmitted by numerous international broadcasters, including SBS Australia (New episodes, repeat episodes show on 7mate Australia), and other Discovery channels worldwide. The show's hosts, special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, use elements of the scientific method to test the validity of rumors, myths, movie scenes, adages, Internet videos, and news stories. The show is one of the oldest—and the most popular—on Discovery Channel currently in production, being preceded only by How It's Made and Daily Planet, both in Canada. Since 2006, the show has been overseen by British show-runner Dan Tapster, working out of Sydney, San Francisco and Manchester.
Filming is based in San Francisco, and editing is done exclusively in Artarmon, Australia. Planning and some experimentation take place at Hyneman's workshops in San Francisco; experiments requiring more space or special accommodations are filmed on location, typically around the San Francisco Bay Area and other locations in northern California, going to other states or even countries on occasion when required.

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?
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.
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?
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!
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?
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.
