In a year that can most charitably be described as “complicated”, some of us may be struggling to come up with things to be thankful for this holiday. But rest assured that there’s always one thing guaranteed to reinvigorate your faith in your fellow man: the sight of two nerds joyously nerding out over some nerdy, nerdy stuff. That’s most definitely the case in this new video from Tested, in which Mythbuster’s Adam Savage drools delightfully over the treasures in Peter Jackson’s abundant cave of movie props and memorabilia.
Adam Savage loves Cosplay and it has become somewhat of a tradition for him to build a new Cosplay and try to walk the halls of the latest convention he is attending anonymously. He recently attended his first New York City Comic Con and brought his latest one day build Cosplay. Do you think you could have picked him out? (more…)
You’ve heard of a TED Talk, right? But what is that exactly? A TED Talk is a video created from a presentation at the main TED conference. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues. Basically, smart people talking smartly about smarty things. With over 2,000 TED Talks from remarkable people, from tech, science, and technology would you have ever expected Mythbuster’s Adam Savage as a Key Speaker talking about his love for Cosplay? Well, he did, and it’s pretty remarkable. (more…)
There was a five year break between Spider-Men from Spider-Man 3 to The Amazing Spider-Man, then there was a four year break between Batmen from The Dark Knight Rises to Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but they’re setting a new record for reboots by launching a new MythBusters. Yes, less than a month after the final episode of the popular Discovery Channel series ended, and brought to a close 15 seasons of myth-busting, the imagination-less people that run TV are looking to put together a relaunch. On top of that, they’re going to choose the hosts through another move that demonstrates an astounding lack or originality: a reality show. (more…)
After almost 250 episodes and a slew of “what ifs” debunked, Discovery’s super-cool TV show MythBusters will go off the air after its upcoming 14th season. Show co-hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, now pop-culture staples themselves, made the decision in conjunction with the network to wrap the show in 2016.
It’s safe to say that most everyone loves Mythbusters. Hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman bust myths, tall tales, misconceptions, and internet viral videos; all in the name of science and discovery. Really, though, they just get a chance to do all sorts of cool shit with high explosives, firearms, and vehicles normal humans would never be allowed to.
Now, take what Adam and Jamie do for a living and imagine that was just a front – that the dynamic duo were actually secret spies for the government using their skills for covert ops. What a silly thought, right? Except its not.
CBS has announced it is developing a new spy drama based on the professional exploits of Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. Oh, boy. (more…)
MythBuster Adam Savage Walked the Floor of SDCC15 as an Astronaut – and Took a Real Astronaut Along With Him
Over the last few years, it’s become more and more “cool” for celebrities to want to walk the floor of the San Diego Comic Con “incognito,” where they don some type of costume that obscures their face, so they can “be among the people” or some such. But there is one TV personality that’s been traipsing the aisles of the convention every year for quite a while now: MythBusters front-man Adam Savage! The guy loves costumes and building props, and in many past years he has cosplayed as various astronaut characters, including real-life versions (a painstakingly-recreated Mercury outfit) and fictitious ones (he’s got a great Nostromo uniform from the Alien film series). This year, to try and throw suspicious fans off of his trail, he decided to make his journey with a friend – none other than real-life astronaut Chris Hadfield!
Mythbusters is back for another season with Adam Savage and Jaime Hyneman. While a lot of us are still feeling the pain of the abrupt departure of Kari Byron, Tory Belleci and Grant Imahara from the show last year, this new season should provide some excellent entertainment. Later this month the pair will take on a few Star Wars Myths and see how they stack up against hard science. (more…)
Adam Savage from Mythbusters is know for going all out at Halloween with his costumes and this year was not an exception. His proton pack just goes to show that ‘he wasn’t afraid of no ghosts this Halloween. We have come to expect this kind of quality craftsmanship from Savage now, who has previously dressed up in Samurai armor, Alien suits and all sorts of crazy costumes that focus on every bit of infinitesimal detail. In honor of the film’s 30th anniversary Savage had ample opportunity to show of his fantastic Proton pack from within the maker’s San Francisco man cave. (more…)
The new TV season begins in a couple of weeks, which is typically a time of excitement for fans, but if you love the Discovery Channel‘s Mythbusters, you may now have reason to be suspicious about the show’s return. Under a blanket of proverbial fog last night, the cable network announced that the M7 build team – Grant Imahara, Kari Byron and Tory Belleci – were suddenly departing from the show. Suffice to say that the M7 trio are a huge part of the show’s success for the last decade, but when you dump news on a Thursday night in August, it’s going to make people wonder: why is Discovery ditching Grant, Kari and Tory?
