MacGyver Mythbusters tonight on Discovery Channel!

February 20, 2008

Hey, everybody!  Just wanted to give you the heads-up on tonight’s episode of Mythbusters, which is the much-ballyhooed (by me, anyway) episode in which the team will be testing out “myths” from MacGyver!

Ex-Boyfriends Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage team up to go mano-a-Macmano with He Against Whom All Others Are Judged!  It’s an episode not to be missed.  At least at my house.

9pm tonight on Discovery Channel.  Have fun!

Very, Very Disappointed in You, My Readers!

Okay, after lo, these many years, I would like you people to explain to me right now why, despite the fact you guys claim to be MY FRIENDS, I had to hear about the upcoming MacGyver Mythbusters episode from MY DAD.

You guys!  I can’t believe nobody emailed me about this!  YOU ARE ALL SO FIRED RIGHT NOW!  You can’t rely on MY DAD to remember to tell me important stuff like this!  I mean, I love my Dad, but he’s a guy!  He can barely remember my NAME half the time (“Hey, you, uh, Marni, Josh, shoot, what’s your name again??”).  (Hi, Dad!  Just teasing!)

Anyway, I went online this morning to check it out, and yessiree bub, they mentioned the upcoming MacGyver special in their “Pirates 2” episode earlier this season (coincidentally, the ONE episode I missed this year — that’ll teach me to click “Skip” on the DVR just so I can record some dumb crime show instead).  Still no word on the actual airdate for the episode, but my guess is it’ll be in January, after a brief hiatus for the holidays.

This week’s episode sounds like a good one too — can a rookie really land a 747?  I have often wondered, given the frequency with which that seems to happen in movies.  And then next week brings us their annual Holiday Episode, though how they can top last year’s Rube Goldberg machine, I have no idea.  I still watch a clip of that thing on YouTube periodically (here, go watch it right now yourself — don’t say I never gave you anything for the holidays).  Love it!

As soon as I find out the actual airdate of the MacGyver episode, I’ll let you guys know.   In the meantime, I’ll be downloading “Pirates 2” from iTunes tonight just so I can hear the official announcement.  That’s how dedicated a fan of my web site *I* am.  Go ahead — post your lame excuses in comments (“My dog ate my email!” “I was abducted by aliens before I could hit ‘Send’!”).  I forgive you.  THIS TIME.  *Sniff!*
