                  I love watching mythbusters it is my favorite show ever, I've been watching the show since it started years ago and I can't wait for more seasons of the show to come out on DVD. But I'd also would like to see more of the mythbusters specials on DVD.

                  It had been a while, years in fact, since Discovery has released a full season of Mythbusters to DVD. So finally being able to get my hands on Season 8 was just pure joy. The only thing that could be better would be seasons 9 and 10, and beyond~!

                  I've had the set for about a week and watched the whole thing already.

                    We started getting Mythbuster DVDs when my wife was being treated for cancer a couple of years ago. They lightened the mood and we both appreciated the science and history behind many of their "projects". We only wish they produced more DVDs of their show since we don't have cable and watching their cloud-based shows doesn't work that well on our computer monitors.

                            Am a long-time fan of the series. Was glad it FINALLY came out. Can't wait for the next series or Collections DVD to come out. Some of the episodes from Collection 10 weren't on Season 7 or 8(Mission Impossible Mask and Running on Water). Loved the Halloween Special and hope it will be in a future edition. There was an episode a long time ago called "Supersized Special" Would like to get that episode.

                                Well, it's mythbusters! Another seasons full of fun myths. You probably know what to expect from Adam, Jamie, and the Build Team, and they do a good job delivering.

                                Get it if you love experimentation. And explosions. And learning things you didn't know before. And having fun doing it :)

                                I hope Discovery keeps Mythbusters, was really bummed out when they dropped Dirty Jobs & Bear Grylls. I prefer the kids watching these educational shows (that are entertaining as well). These shows are fun, enjoyable, safe to watch with the kids, while maintaining adult watch-ability.

                                  I was so glad to see that Mythbusters season 8 was out on DVD, great fun for the whole family and hope they put all the seasons out soon.

                                        It may be Season 8, but it covers 1.5 years of broadcasts. Still, there are 24 episodes, which is a lot for the money. Hard to tell how long the series will last, so it's helpful to have access to this archive.

                                          "Mythbusters" is one of the best shows ever made in the History of Ever. It's fun, educational, informative, and finally it's a show that TEACHES something to the viewers. Every time I watch an episode, it's like I've been visited by good friends who use to blow stuff up (luckily for me, there is a TV screen between me and the explosions — but still...). It's fun, fun, fun.

                                            Finally they release season 8. I have been buying every season as it is released and have been waiting on this one FOREVER. Hopefully they will follow up with 9 and 10 in a timelier manner. I can only guess why they are holding them back; probably something to do with reruns and licensing to other networks...there is ALWAYS money involved. At least they DID release it, I thought they had stopped releasing whole seasons and could not get an answer from Discovery.com

                                            I have been a fan from the start. I thought they would never release the rest of the show. So happy to know I can order this soon! Now to get 9 and 10 out for people to order. If only they did the same for Dirty Jobs!
