    Mythbusters is doing another "Dirty Dozen" special tomorrow evening titled "Location, Location, Location" that will not be caught by regular season passes.

    My Dirty Dozen SP picked this up fine. It has own SP not regular SP. You might want to set the SP for Dirty Dozen specials.

    I actually just did that. :)

    Back when the first one aired ("Planes, Trains, and Automobiles"?), I didn't realize that it was going to be a series of specials.

    Whoa. Weird. We Canadians are usually months or seasons behind on Mythbusters, yet this episode just aired Nov 6. TiVo didn't catch it (*shrug*), but I did and hit record just in time.

    I found yesterday evening that the episode's information had been changed to have it fall under the regular Mythbusters season pass.

    Well, luckily the episode will probably re-air, so if that is the case, then it's not too late to record it.

    Also, I did set up a Season Pass for the "Dirty Dozen" variant, so hopefully that one will pick up any future airings with the different name.

    I don't think it will re-air and specials apparently aren't available via Amazon or iTunes. There are other ways of getting it though.

    My Season Pass ended up picking this up today as a repeat (despite my SP being set only for "new"). Better late than never I guess.

    That's within 28 days, which is what Tivo uses to determine "new". (From what everyone has said, I don't remember if this has been officially stated by Tivo.)

    Are they going to show the episode (must be still in the making) where the cannon shot hits someone's house?

    They shoot these way in advance.

    Kari was still very pregnant on the show for about 6 months after her baby was born, maybe more.

    That episode most likely isn't set to air till next summer, if not later.
    According to one news report I saw, filming has been shut down pending a thorough investigation.

    They probably will decide to air the episode, but they won't show the out-of-control shot.

    As you might imagine, this made all the local news shows in the SF bay area. Last night we got to see Adam, Jamie & co. making a house call to apolgize to the homeowner.

    Investigations are still ongoing, and the range remains shut down for now. The Mythbusters crew stated they'll be using a different range for this kind of stunt in the future - one a lot further away from a residential area.

    Yep. I was surprised nobody posted the story sooner. I thought people would be making a huge deal out of it. I'm curious to know exactly what happened myself... Whatever Cannon that was, it was a good one. Can't wait to see the episode.

    Im just glad nobody was hurt. From the looks of that house, that projectile could easily have taken somebody's head off.

    I don't see why they shouldn't. If they're going to continue with the "don't try this at home" mantra, showing this shot would be a good exaxmple of why you shouldn't try these things at home.

    Oh I think they'll show it. The only way they won't is if the homeowner files a lawsuit against them or some other legal matters are pending. It's just too damn good and it's exactly the kind of thing that makes the show great.

    Hopefully they won't get sued. I had no idea that Alameda Airforce Base was so close to civilian housing. It sure doesn't look that way on the show.
