The problem with the alternating segments thing is they spend so much time recapping what they showed you last time they were on that myth that it cuts into what they could show.

Hell I hate hate hate programs that do the...coming up after the break......commercial....okay we're doing this and this is what you've already seen but we're going to remind you for several minutes before we get to anything new.

Don't foreshadow, and trust me to remember what I saw three minutes ago.

I do have to take issue with the author suggesting that the lunar reflectors are incontrovertible evidence of the moon landings.

Don't get me wrong, I am not a moonie and I have no doubt that the moon landings were real.

But, the unmanned Soviet Lunokhod 1 and Lunokhod 2 rovers carried reflector arrays that were deposited on the moon without men ... so having reflectors does not prove a manned landing. Only 3 of the 5 were put there by manned landings.

/there is much better evidence proving the landings
//the denier talking points do not hold water when closely analysed

bungle_jr: LittleSmitty: Some of my favorite episodes are Rocket Car (1st episode?), Escape from Alcatraz, and the one where they cut a car in half with a huge wedge mounted on a rocket sled.

And the one where they caused an entire cement truck to vanish using a bunch of C4.

probably my single favorite moment on mythbusters was that explosion. i love the show, but they even shocked themselves with that explosion

It made me think of that Daffy Duck cartoon where he puts on the Devil suit and blows himself up

Maybe it's just me, but I liked the metalworking girl that was on before Kari. Kari to me was just the flouncy chick to keep guys watching.

I'd like to test the myth if the carpet matches the drapes.

One test that I disagreed with was if the Phantom's ring could leave an imprint in someone's forehead. They stretched pigskin over a skull and had a robot arm punch it at varying strength. It never left an impression and it actually shattered the skull. So to them, myth busted.

However, that doesn't seem right to me. I've seen someone take a line drive off of their knee while playing third and the baseball left the impression of the stitches on his knee with no broken bones. Sure, the ball is softer, but it seems that if a ball can leave an impression, so can a ring.
