About the show

Hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman set up experiments using a combination of science and special effects in order to recreate and debunk potentially false, but common, urban legends, hoping to set the record straight once and for all for the public. In the process, however, the duo's experiments occasionally prove the odd myth to actually be true.

Based on a scene in the film The Mummy, Adam and Jamie test whether a system of mirrors can be used to reflect sunlight into an underground area and illuminate it sufficiently to allow safe passage. Meanwhile, Kari, Grant and Tory check whether it is possible to safely stop an out-of-control car by pulling in front of it and slowing down.
