Re: MYTHBUSTERS 10th Anniversary Season

Or if maybe they did do it and it was cut for time?

Or it could be duplicating the results couldn't be done due to time limitations. I mean to make a cannon that could survive multiple uses it'd probably have to be pretty big and well built so it'd probably just not be practical to make such a thing.

Well, we've known all along that Discovery cuts up to 7 minutes out of each episode to make room for commercials. That's why there's so much "extra" footage available on the website. (And it annoys me that the DVDs don't restore the episodes to their full length.)

^That is annoying. I haven't purchased any but I'd certainly expect to see that type of thing on the sets.

Re: MYTHBUSTERS 10th Anniversary Season

^Indeed, the episodes available for streaming on Netflix sometimes have material cut out -- specifically movie clips whose rights must have lapsed. Not sure if that's true for the DVDs as well. But it gets awkward sometimes when the setup for the myth is explained by the movie clips. In that one about using a harpoon and blasting caps to blow up a shark, it just jumps to the team starting to test the myth without any prior exposition of what they're testing.

In cases like that, it seems it would've been a good idea to produce alternate, animated exposition sequences, like the ones they use to recreate movie scenes they don't have the rights to. Then they'd have backups in case their license to the actual clips expired.

Re: MYTHBUSTERS 10th Anniversary Season

That reminds me of something. I wonder if the production could have gotten the rights to depict a shot or two from Trek's "Arena" at a reasonable fee, but opted to create their own sequences just because they wanted to go "full fanboy" and have some fun cosplaying?

Sincerely,

Bill

Do you even have to ask?
