This week, they busted the myth that you can catch a bullet by clenching your teeth. Using a synchronized firer and timer that is precise to the thousandth of a second, and after several attempts, they manage to come close. But they figured out that with that kind of impact, the bullet literally disintegrates even if they use a reinforced bullet. They finally tested using human jaws and half the jaw pretty much flew to the roof rofl. They also busted the helium football myth. In fact, a helium football has a chance of landing shorter than farther.

Almost every episode is interesting. Adam proved that walking over water is not possible, but you could walk over (quickly) non-newtonian fluids like cornstarch mixed with water.

They also proved that you could break glass with the right pitch of the voice. Jaime Vendera went on Mythbusters to record this feat on a high-speed camera.
