    Looks like fun!

    But seriously, do they really NEED to test carrying all that gear?

    That **** is super human no matter how you slice it.

    I would be interested in the physics of exploding barrels. If you blow one up, does the one next to it really explode?

    I'd say it depends what's in them and the quality of the barrels. :D

    The theme being they are grasping at straws in a last ditch effort to keep the show going.

    They've done James Bond themed eps on multiple occasions, and they've proven that you cant even shoot explosive containers with a pistol and they'd blow up. They did manage to do it using incendiary bullets in a mini-gun. The ammo type being the biggest factor, provided it can pierce the container.

    I see no reason why 1 exploding barrel wouldnt cause another to explode though, all the ingredients are there, you just need something to ignite the barrels really, so get 1 to blow and the others must surely blow, if near enough and pierced/exposed.

    Should be a good episode, the themed ones were always a good watch.

    When the Discovery channel closed it's forums they cut off a major source of suggestions for myths IMHO.

    Considering the game takes place on Phobos, gravity shouldn't be much of a factor. I figure the only real challenge is having enough "pockets" to store all the weapons.

    This is Season 15, currently 3 episodes in on Discovery in the USA.

    Also, season 15 has no Kari, Tori or Grant, it's just Adam & Jamie now.

    It's npt mythbusters without the whole team, they did the same with The gadget show and I stopped watching after 1 episode as it wasn't the same any, plus Jason annoys the hell out of me.
