    Mythbusters on Discovery Channel is SO much better, it's like Brainic, but with a genuinely high-tech scientific approach!

    Mythbusters, genuinely high tech ISH, they get a few things wrong, but annoyingly american so loads of repeating themselves for the tiny brains.Only seen a few with Vic, he seems to be quite mad and fit in nicely I thought.

    Jonny Ball did it best. Proper science made fun.

    Liked Brainiac when it first aired but not much now, there's a spin-off too (isn't there??) with two presenters, that didn't seem too badProblem I have with Mythbusters is that they never accurately recreate the myth's they're trying to validate, ie if the 'correct' re-enactment doesn't give the expected results then, what the hell, let's add more explosives. They then have the cheek to say myth busted. No it isn't.

    I dunno Sprokitt, I tend to think they do it the other way, if the 'accurate' reinactment doesn't work, they try and make it more hardcore to try and confirm the myth, rather than try and bust it.Entertaining either way IMO, some of the stuff they do is rather interesting!

    Nick, ok, agreed and reading some of the results on their website does support that line of thought, just the episodes I watched implied the opposite.It's better than Hamster-less Brainiac even though some of the myths are too stupid to be believed but it's worth tuning in just to see Kari

    Love Braniac. Always thought Mythbusters dragged it out too much in a 'I'm a yank so I'll keep talking to camera and repeating myself' kind of way. Agree that you'd hit that though.
