Entertainment Weekly has released a trailer for The Science Channel's reality-show Mythbusters sequel/spinoff, Mythbusters: The Search. It's scheduled for Saturday, January 7, 2017 at 9 PM Eastern. I can't say I'm thrilled by it. It's using the standard elimination-competition format of a reality show, which I hate, because it's usually just an excuse to create nastiness and conflict, and because "reality" shows are usually staged and manipulated anyway. Even aside from that, I don't want to see people auditioning to be new Mythbusters, I want to see people who've already passed the audition and proven themselves worthy. Format-wise, it looks like the approach is to challenge the newcomers to revisit classic myths from the show (I saw needle in a haystack, ejector seat, and painting with explosives, to name a few) and try to improve on them. I guess that could be kind of interesting, but it feels more like an exercise in nostalgia and homage than something really creative and educational. In other Mythbusters news, there's an art show devoted to Adam, Jamie, and Buster. Some cool stuff there, but it's a shame the Build Team isn't included.
