Boring cross-advertising
14 October 2010 | by (Hamburg, Federal Republic of Germany) – See all my reviews

Apparently, a series about "storm chasers" needed a ratings bump, so Discovery sent their Mad-Max-like vehicles with the combined eye candy of Adam and Jamie to a 747 for a wind test. After determining their abilities, they have the MythBusters build a carry-on cover for one human and test it. And that's it.

Where's the originality? The trials and errors? The little details in the builds that sparked your imagination? Or at least the "Jamie wants big boom" moment?

So, please, dear producers, don't think you can maximize your profits by saving on the expenses.
