Agreed. Great episode. I love the other fuel that Jamie used. :)

Also, I was just curious when watching the episode (trying not to spoil anything) but I am wondering if they actually got 'good' experts on the first set of rockets if the results would of been the same. We'll never know now.

I wouldn't say I love it but I find it quite... entertaining!

Ya, me too. I have seen many people use the technology involved and it worked very well. I have seen people use sausages and succeed.

Well,
Its really over this time.

Nice reunion special with a clip from a woman who's life was saved thanks to the underwater car trick and a word from Barack Obama.

I'll miss these guys.

I wasn't aware of this and I'm really glad you mentioned it.

Personally, I'd love to be part of the cast/crew of such a TV show but I have to be honest... I would suck at it, except perhaps as the narrator.

To work as cast in that show, you have to have a talent for building contraptions that work quickly and efficiently. Something Jamie and Adam clearly have and I truly don't. I'm more on the electronics stuff.

That's not to say, however, the 2 guys can't be replaced. I strongly differ with the people who posted comments the show wouldn't be the same without the 2 original crew. Having studied in an engineering school, I have seen lots of young people create astounding machines on a shoestring budget and very tight timelines.

Of course it would not be the same with someone else.
And it would be a shame if they tried it.
A show in the same style with a new name would be cool.

In case you were wondering what's happening with the former Mythbusters, here's something interesting about Grant Imahara.
