"MythBusters" is epic. Absolutely, positively epic. Professional debunkers Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman take to television to test the validity of any number of adages, notions, old sayings and "common knowledge," mixing a bit of madness with the scientific method. Their show is on the Discovery Channel, but now it's on the road, which is even cooler. "MythBusters" doesn't do risk, like "Jackass." It does logic, and it's brilliant.
Why go: It will be the coolest thing you do all week.
Reconsider: They're nerds messing stuff up. Stop it, dude!
