They will reboot anything, new mythbusters season (20)

They will reboot anything, new mythbusters season (20)

Postby FlarePhoenix » Thu Nov 23, 2017 7:47 am

So one of my favorite reality/science show is back. New hosts and new myths to bust. Goes to show nothing tv won't scrape to get something to show with.

Honestly I hope it does not fail, cause "failure is always an option" but never wanted.

A lot of Remakes are done for Copyright reasons. In some countries a copyright can last as little as 25 years from first publication, i.e. Jumanji as a 1995 is getting close to that. The Copyright get´s renewed when the current copyright holder does something with the IP. In such cases the copyright holder might not even care if the new product turns out make a profit or not since they are really only interested in keeping the copyright all around the world in the first place.

The sad thing is mostly the older version is better. i was also a fan of mythbusters and watched the gameshow thing, didn't like anybody on it. if you want more just watch tested imao.

To be fair, it takes quite a bit of intelligence to come up with new and different concepts, as well as stories that aren't wholly derivative of some other story. Now someone can chime in about muh every story is is composed of the same few literary archetypes to excuse blatant plagiarism and the dire lack of compelling new works.

I actually enjoyed the search for new hosts, although do think they should have had a female as part of the team, to make it more accessible to all, but think the ones that won were good, and got the new season queued up to watch, yes they wont be adam and jamie, but will give it a chance for sure, might be a rehash of the old format, but hey if it aint broke why fix it? :D

The latest Fantastic Four movie was made more or less for that reason. The agreement with Marvel ends if 20th Century Fox don't use the license in 'x' time so they put up a crappy soulless movie just to keep the license.

I was shocked to see a new season of mythbusters at work. Especially fear factor.

Well I watched the first two episodes and result is... I liked it. Wish they elaborate the sciency stuff more on the results more, but the older later episodes also did this. Granted I'm sure more people rather see more of "rocket sword" than know why the head won't stay in place when when sliced *cough Newton second law *cough friction *cough.

We got Mythbusters late in the UK, usually buried deep on some fairly obscure Freeview channel.
Always worth watching particularly when they were shooting, blowing stuff up or disproving action film myths. A great mix of interesting, real science and popular culture. Love to see it here again in new form or not.

The one I always remember was the Saving Private Ryan opening scene where rounds were shown whizzing through the water killing as you would think they might. This has been used in films and video games hundreds of times since.

Problem is that Mythbusters showed that even a .50 calibre round fired from a few feet away
would not only lose most of its energy in the first three feet of water but the bullet itself would break up as well. Its probably on YT somewhere.

It is:-
