‘MythBusters’: This Friendlier, Science-Loving Reboot is Perfect 2017 Counterprogramming

‘MythBusters’: This Friendlier, Science-Loving Reboot is Perfect 2017 Counterprogramming
It doesn’t take long for the newly revamped version of “MythBusters” to take part in some mythmaking of its own. For anyone who might stumble on the title in a program guide and wonder why former hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman aren’t the lead scientists on this unscripted TV mainstay anymore, there’s a handy introduction of new faces Jon Lung and Brian Louden. Specifically chosen as part of the “MythBusters: The Search” competition series from earlier this year, the quick intro to the newest “MythBusters” season (premiering Wednesday night on Science Channel) feeds into the idea that these two were destined to take the reigns and shepherd the series forward.

The result is Lung and Louden now heading up a show that’s a slightly revamped, but still true to its predecessor, a thoroughly enjoyable romp through surface-level scientific inquiry that’s still a valuable part of the TV world.

‘Fire Chasers’ Review: Leonardo DiCaprio’s Latest Environmental Doc Captures the Terrifying Human Fight Against Nature’s Dangers

‘Fire Chasers’ Review: Leonardo DiCaprio’s Latest Environmental Doc Captures the Terrifying Human Fight Against Nature’s Dangers
Last week, Los Angeles experienced the La Tuna Fire, the largest for the city in over a half-century. California’s Governor Jerry Brown made an official call for a state of emergency. Fire crews worked tirelessly for the better part of the week to ensure that Burbank and the surrounding areas would not be engulfed by flames coming from over the mountain.

That’s why the footage in the latest Netflix docuseries “Fire Chasers” doesn’t exist merely as entertainment. These aren’t harrowing images of fire purely delivered to shock and awe. By going multiple steps beyond the usual, familiar news footage of flames overtaking a hillside, this series (executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio) embeds within the fire crews themselves, using on-helmet cameras and dangerously intimate firefighting footage to drive home the danger that these men and women face when the flame path is uncertain.

Watch your back, Hulu. IndieWire surveyed 15 network toppers this summer on a range of questions, including the show they’d most like to steal from a rival.

Five Things We Learned from the Deadliest Catch Finale

When the show aired its very first episode back in 2005, the world was introduced to a whole new way of living and making money.

Now 12 seasons in, the show has lost beloved members and has given us plenty more in return. The season 11 two-hour finale was as exciting as ever,

Deadliest Catch exclusive: Summer Bay hit by giant waves after losing power in huge seas

On tonight’s Deadliest Catch season finale, a generator on the Summer Bay fails in giant seas — leaving CaptainWild Bill” Wichrowski powerless to control the vessel as huge waves slam it from all sides. At one point a massive surge hits the side of the vessel, smashing into the cockpit and sending water pouring in through the window as Captain Bill is thrown out of his seat. The incident happens as he battles 20ft waves and 50-knot winds while struggling to finish his season. It took place not long after the sinking of the F/V Destination crabbing boat — which was found...read more

Deadliest Catch: What Do They Do For Meals on Short Notice

It may be a no-brainer, but the truth is that short notice meals are the norm on Deadliest Catch ships. Captain Sig Hansen told a bit of what it’s like to try to eat on his boat, the Northwestern, when the crew is busy fishing. He told Miami New Times that it’s the fishing which dictates the meals, and that they don’t come at regular times. He said, “It’s hell.” The routine at sea is dictated by the sea. He’s had times when he and the crew were awake for two days straight, and even three and a half one

Deadliest Catch exclusive: Is The Wizard cursed this season?

You might want to rethink visiting Captain Keith Colburn on his famous Wizard for a photo op. The boat is cursed this season! On tonight’s Deadliest Catch, Colburn and company get zero breaks as the Bering Sea is roiling and ready to capsize the big boat. No lie. If you recall, last week deckhand Crosby almost became human chum. Then the week prior Gary Soper was kneecapped and felled by an icy rogue wave. Keith’s brother Monty Colburn saves the day as he spots the split in the intake pipe that is exposed to waves and sea water. This is...read more

Deadliest Catch Video: Coast Guard Chopper Searches for Ship in Distress
Discovery’s Deadliest Catch didn’t get its title because crabbing in the Bering Sea is such a predictable, safe occupation. And this sneak peek at Tuesday’s episode (9/8c) is a stark reminder of just how dangerous the job can be.

Deadliest Catch exclusive: Crosby nearly goes overboard as dangerous tides whip the Wizard

The Wizard and Captain Keith Colburn get no breaks tonight as Deadliest Catch sees deckhand Crosby Leveen nearly dragged under the boat. Strong ocean currents generate immense downward pressure on the pots, which creates a hazardous situation when the buoys they are attached to are hooked and pulled on board, and then reset. The unpredictable speed at which they are sucked into the water presents a serious hazard for the crew. Our exclusive clip below shows how Crosby almost gets tangled in one of the ropes and is nearly zip-lined across the deck and pulled over the side of the...read more

Sig Hansen gets news over chest pains on Deadliest Catch

Sig Hansen finds out whether he’ll be able to continue fishing for the rest of the season on tonight’s Deadliest Catch — or whether he needs to take a step back. Sig had to get evacuated out by plane on the last episode after suffering chest pains, a year after he suffered a severe heart attack while out at sea. It led to fans of the Discovery show calling for Sig to stop smoking, with some also suggesting he should step down as captain of the Northwestern altogether to lead a less stressful life. This week’s Deadliest Catch also sees Brenna...read more

Discovery/Scripps Merger Is Good For Business, but (Probably) Bad for Producers

Discovery Communications’ $14.6 billion acquisition of Scripps Networks makes a lot of sense — for Discovery and Scripps. A combined Discovery/Scripps will likely shed a few networks in the process, which means less choice for viewers, and fewer buyers for content creators.

Discovery hasn’t yet announced its strategic plans for its new oversized stable of channels, but the company did say that merging the cable groups could provide a cost savings of $350 million.

Discovery and Scripps will create a bigger conglomerate as, ironically, distribution pipes get smaller. Cable groups have already started to shed channels, as the coming age of “skinny bundles” means there won’t be room for smaller networks in a streamlined age.
