I have a new favourite TV show and blimey, it is a science show.
Mythbusters is special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman using scientific methods to test the validity of various rumours, urban legends, myths and internet rumours.
This week they tested the 'Brown Note' theory which saw Adam stood amongst some huge speakers and swamped with an infrasound frequency that is said to cause humans to lose control of their bowels. He never unfortunately.
Britain has its own version of Mythbusters called Brainiacs but that is played more for entertainment but there is a certain amount of crossover such as running on custard, mobile phones at petrol stations and the aforementioned Brown note experiment but Mythbusters seems to have a much larger budget and can therefore smash cars between two trucks, build an Archimedes Death Ray and attach rockets to a car to see if it would take off.
Brainiacs is one of Sky's Televisions best viewed programmes and Mythbusters seems very popular on the web so there is the call for science based programming as long as it's done the right way and doesn't blind you with unfathomable science.
One thing is the lousy British accent that Adam Savage seems to launch into at least once a show, it sucks dude. Stick to burning off your eyebrows or making fun of Jamie's impressively ludicrous facial hair.
