It's "East Meets West" in this episode of MythBusters. Shrouded in secrecy and mythology, not to mention cult popularity, ninjas are perfect fodder for the MythBusters. The whole team joins forces to pit science against martial arts mystique. Can ninjas run on water as movies like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon would have us believe? In "Walking on Water," Adam, Jamie and a ninjitsu master try their luck at aquatic agility. And if that doesn't work, the boys get confrontational as they compete to see how ninjas - masters of illusion - could create the impression of water running. In "Samurai Swing," Kari, Tory and Grant find out if a ninja could stop a samurai sword with his bare hands. To avoid the sharp sting of steel the team devises a ninja rig to clap onto the sword, and it seems like this myth is all in the timing.

Starting Season 15, Kari, Tory, and Grant are no longer with the show. Their salaries have apparently gone to the film production staff. There are now a lot of visual effects and cutesy sketches, a departure from the sort of "garage show" feel back when they started out in the first seasons. All in all, the new approach is a lot better than I would have expected. However, it suffers from cutting back and forth between one project done by Adam and Jamie and another project done by Adam and Jamie. I understand that they are catering to the limited attention spans of their audience, but it was less jarring to cut back and forth between two different crews: Adam/Jamie and Kari/Tory/Grant. I think the change is for the worse, but the show is still watchable. You can find Grant Imahara on Star Trek Continues.


Series was a blast, no pun intended, until they laid off Grant, Kari, and Tory.


wow this is awesome

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
