MythBusters season 16 episodes list:
Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman attempt to blow a boat clean out of the water using 1,000 lbs of high explosives. They also take on the most requested myth of the year when they team up with Breaking Bad EP Vince Gilligan to test out the ability of a homemade machine gun, just like the one Walter White used in the Breaking Bad finale.
Adam and Jamie tackle the ultimate aviation investigation: is the U-2 really the toughest aircraft in regular use to fly and land? The guys also take on the next big technological development in commercial delivery - remote control multi rotor drones.
The guys test out whether a stone shot from a lawn mower can have the same power as a bullet shot from a .357. Next Adam and Jamie look into the story of a pane of glass falling from a construction site and cutting an innocent bystander completely in half from head to toe.
Adam and Jamie test whether or not hands-free driving is a safe way to make a call while behind the wheel.
Adam and Jamie take aim at Hollywood's hit men and their supernatural ability to take down a target. First up, the guys test out whether a well-placed shot through an interior wall could really kill. Next, Adam and Jamie look to epic gun-toting movie "Shoot 'Em Up" to see if handheld bullets can really bet set off by thrusting your hand into fire.
Adam and Jamie tackle fan favorites; video games; grenades; spy cars; super-fast firearms.
In 2005, the MythBusters took a dive into shark-infested waters to test theories from the 1975 classic film "Jaws." In the episode, the MythBusters revisited the epic final scene of "Jaws" and tested whether shooting a scuba tank with a bullet would actually make it explode. The myth was busted, but many viewers thought they got it wrong. Now, ten years later and to coincide with the 40th anniversary of "Jaws," the MythBusters are back to test new ideas, theories and angles from the film. MythBusters vs. Jaws will not only retest the scuba tank explosion, but will also attempt to find out if the sounds of Orcas and the smell of dead sharks repel sharks.
Adam and Jamie once again confront the dark side of science in a workshop not so far, far away. A recurring theme in the movies is the ability of the heroes to dodge, evade and dive out of the way of an incoming Stormtrooper shot. But is that possible? The guys also tackle the iconic scene from Episode III when Anakin is defeated in an epic light-sabre duel.
