Mythbusters lite
27 December 2007 | by (Bloomington, Indiana) – See all my reviews

On the pilot episode of Mythbusters on the Discovery Channel, Adam and Jamie test whether spray-on pickup truck bed liner can be used to make a building blast proof....wait, wait, sorry. Wrong show. The show is actually called Smash Lab, but the idea is basically the same. Take some nerdy guys, a skinny woman, have them spout techno-engineer babble, while gearing up to set off a large explosion. The only problem with this idea is that it's been done, and done much better. The comparison between the two shows was inevitable, so it makes me wonder why the creators didn't do more to make a distinction.

Smash Lab has taken the final five minutes of Mythbusters, where Adam and Jamie go for the biggest explosion possible, and made it the subject of an hour long show. Much like Smash Lab's free standing single-story building coated with Rhino Liner, I'm not sure the show will stand for very long.
