- 1 Soda Cup Killer
This episode of MYTHBUSTERS mixes a killer cocktail of lethal littering and high-flying action movie action. In cup vs. car, Adam and Jamie tackle a tall tale of trash and crash. Can a Styrofoam cup of soda, thrown from a car at highway speeds, penetrate the windshield of an oncoming car and seriously injure the unfortunate driver? It sounds far-fetched, but Adam and Jamie discover how much damage a drink can really do. Tory, Grant and Jessi find out if film ‘fall guys’ can really hang on to the side of a building, Hollywood-style. Just about every action movie has a variation on the death-defying cling, but is it actually viable? The team tests their limits using their wits and a fake chopper.

- 2 Dive to Survive
More Hollywood hi-jinks are explored in this episode of MythBusters. First up, Adam and Jamie plunge head first into a climactic cinema cliché: to survive a blast by the bad guys, the good guys dive underwater and resurface unscathed. Can a deep dive really save you from imminent annihilation? Kari Byron returns from maternity leave with a vengeance when she, Grant and Tory call for directory assistance. According to on-screen espionage scenarios, lining the inside of a car’s doors with a layer of phonebooks will bulletproof the car. But can you believe everything you see?

- 3 Spy Car Escape
On this episode of MythBusters, it's spy vs. spy as Adam and Jamie investigate the best way to lose a tail in a car chase. These intrepid investigators test three of the all-time movie classics: tacks, smoke, and oil all launched from the trunk of a moving car. Jamie and Adam not only design and install the weapon systems, they take turns as 'pursued' and 'pursuer.' In a fascinating physics 'thought experiment,' Kari, Grant and Tory explore whether an object fired backwards from a vehicle moving forwards assuming both speeds are exactly the same will simply fall straight to the ground. Common sense says it should, but science is not as straightforward.

- 4 Bottle Bash
Adam and Jamie get feisty with a bar fight fable while Kari, Grant and Tory investigate a ballistic material mystery from history. Forensic scientists have supposedly discovered that you'd be worse off having an empty beer bottle smashed over your head as opposed to a full one. Sounds counter intuitive, no? To get to the bottom of the bottle mystery, Adam and Jamie begin the brawl by bashing Buster, a pig, Mr. Jell-O Head and something they dreamed up called Meat Head. Meanwhile, Kari, Grant and Tory challenge the concept of a leather cannon. According to historical documents, ancient Swedish and Irish armies used animal hides to build their cannons. There is no written record of how successful these leather cannons really were, so the testing was rather explosive.
