Mythbusters Season 5

I love this show! If you are not familiar with the series, Mythbusters takes urban legends and scenarios presented by viewers and the hosts themselves and figures out if the events could actually occur. Ranging from the absurd to the highly factual, the Mythbusters team present science to the viewer along with a sense of adventure.

This is a massive set. Spanning 8 DVDs, this set titled Season 5 did have me perplexed at first. You see, even though this is titled Season 5, I remember seeing some of these shows and for me this is a bit out of sequence. Checking my facts during reviewing this show, I realised that this is actually Season 6 in the proper airing timeframe. At least for a lot of the episodes in any case. I don't fully understand what is going on here but, as long as you are collecting the Australian releases you should be fine.

The 'busters have a very unique way of doing things, ways that often involve lots of explosives, vehicles and ninjas! Turning situations on their heads and then explaining just how the heck they are proving their points is just a part of what makes Mythbusters such compelling viewing.

You would think after all this time that the guys would be running out of stuff to prove or disprove, but that is hardly the case. The really cool thing about the show is that it has such a massive following that even the viewers send in myths for the team to bust. It really does smack of a vibrant community that all want to have fun with each other and the guys on the show. Testament to that is the fact that the program is now in its ninth season with no slow down.

There are a number of specials that are featured in this collection and viewers of the series will be very happy to see how well the DVD collection has been put together. This is a darn good series and also the content for the most part is family friendly enough for everyone to enjoy. I am sincerely looking forward to further releases of Mythbusters from Magna.

The quality of the video and audio on this show is standard for a modernish release with nothing really to complain about or compliment for that matter. It is just a really fun show to watch and even learn some stuff from.

Highly recommended.
