It's Mythbusters... Need I say more?
17 November 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This is just classic Mythbusters. It's science, it's funny, it's dangerous and it's blowing stuff up! The Mythbusters takes on some of the myths from the movie Jaws. Will punching a shark make it go away? Can a shark destroy a boat or a shark cage? Can it pull a boat backwards or pull down several barrels and will a oxygen tank explode when fired upon? Those are the Myths put to the test.

I hope we're to see more Mythbusters specials in the future. Taking a bunch of myths related to one thing and testing them is cool and gives the episode a better integrity as it's all connected in one way or another to a theme and not just random myths.

It's a good special, with Adam, Jamie, Kari, Grant and Tory at their best. It's got all you want and all the show needs. Crazy inventions, danger, destruction and an explosion! A must see for fans of either Mythbusters, Jaws or sharks, but beware if you like Jaws... Some of the Myths are busted. But, never the less it's fun to watch and you might also learn something.
