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.
