    FF..

    Just pretend the show is 25 minutes long, or whatever it ends up being..

    But don't be TOO fast with the FF or 30 second skip, since in the last ad break, they have a short (minute or so) amusing segment/outtake kind of thing.

    Something very odd. My Tivo shows the episode we're talking about as being Season 9, episode 19. But the Road Rage episode shows an original air date of 7/31/2014 but is Season 9, episode 27.

    That was also during a phase when Mythbusters was testing, as Adam put it, "oogie-boogie" myths. The talking to plants "myth" fit right in.

    At least they were genuine urban legend style myths, what the show was mostly originally created to test, rather than blowing stuff up, smashing cars, shooting stuff, and the like.

    There's no consistent way of really numbering the episodes. What we do know is that Plane Boarding is at least two years old, so that would explain the wildly out of sequence episode numbers.

    As for the end of the M7 team, consider that Jamie and/or Adam are also executive producers now, so THEY could have had a role in the decision to cut the expense and cut the team loose when they asked for a bigger taste.

    The way I understand it is that Beyond Productions hired Jamie's M5 Industries to test the myths, and M5 in turn hired Adam and the rest.

    In that case, Jamie's responsible for firing them. However, if they're cutting the budget, Jamie can't afford to keep all of them and they won't work for free.

    But isn't "M5" Jamie? I always understood that M5 was Jamie's company and Adam worked with him or too was part owner. Now the other three were simply cast members of the show brought in to be able to handle more "myth busting".
