The build team may be gone, but all a whole new crop of MythBusters episodes are full-nerd ahead. While last week’s Simpsons special was cool, this week Adam and Jamie will be dedicating an entire hour to Indiana Jones myths, and one of them is a straight-up classic: could Indy really have swung across the pit in the opening of Raiders of the Lost Ark on his whip? Well, being ones to always put their bodies on the line, there was no way Adam was going to pass up a chance to dress up like one of his favorite characters and do the test himself.
How did it go, you ask? Just check out this new clip to find out:
Damn, he seemed so close! But, as any good fan knows, the MythBusters don’t give up easily — even if Adam and Jamie fail to replicate the circumstances of the Raiders scene in question, they’ll try their hardest to duplicate the results.
Last week’s premiere was an interesting taste of the show’s new format that puts a greater focus on the team’s actual trial and error-style of building things, and we have no doubt that trend is going to continue heading into this week’s episode that already has us excited.
Mythbusters airs Saturdays at 9/8c on Discovery.
