'Mythbusters - Collection 13'
(Jamie Hyneman, Adam Savage, Robert Lee / 2-Disc DVD / NR / 2015 / Discovery + Cinedigm)

Overview: This lucky thirteenth 'MythBusters' season is packed with its infamous scintillating scientific mayhem, along with a few rocket-powered surprises. With 30 years of special effects experience, Adam and Jamie will answer the craziest questions viewers can think up and then make up a few of their own!

DVD Verdict: Here in 'Mythbusters - Collection 13,' we find out if balloons can protect you in a car crash? Does the smell of fear really exist? Can you cook lasagna in a dishwasher? And what exactly tastes like chicken?

They also team up with 'Titanic' movie director James Cameron to tackle a Titanic myth; which has turned out to be the most requested episode EVER in 'MythBuster' history! Oh, and this 2-disc set also includes perhaps the perfect episode ever: Explosions from A to Z, highlighting some of the show s 752 detonations and counting!

That said, and as for 'Mythbusters' themselves, their approach in proving or disproving various myths - often with a bang or a boom, let alone an explosion - and using science in a comical way to teach the various myths, well, personally, I can't help but enjoy. And also be educated! This also goes to the narrator who adds his take on the myths. I think his role is often overlooked and definitely adds spice, as it were, to the show.

Disc One - Titanic Survival / Trench Torpedo / Hail Hijinx / Fright Night
Disc Two - Mini Myth Medley / Cannonball Chemistry / Food Fables / Explosions A-Z

In fact, all three - Jamie Hyneman, Adam Savage, and said narrator Robert Lee - each adds to the show to make it a very terrific, and live wire production, that's for damn sure! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1:78.1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
