    Just wondering what people's favorite episodes of mythbusters are.

    I think it is hard to pick just one.

    I definitely liked the Jaws episode where they looked at killing the shark with a SCUBA bottle.

    The other one that comes to mind is the JFK assassination episode where they proved that the one bullet could have gone through Kennedys throat an Conley's shoulder.

    I think most people don't think of Mythbusters in terms of specific episodes. People remember the individual myths they tested, not necessarily the episode it came from.

    Pretty much this. Aside from specific themed episodes, I tend to remember myths individually. As a general rule though, I'd say I enjoyed the early stuff the most, back when they:

    a) didn't really have a budget so had to be creative
    b) showed a lot more of the process that went into building/testing
    c) didn't just load it up with a bazillion tonnes of explosive at the end

    Explosions are cool and all, but they don't really translate well to TV, and every single episode gets old.

    Anyway, off the top of my head, some favourites are probably:

    - the cola myths, because these were actually myths I've heard many times and was genuinely curious about
    - the hot water tank one, just because of how accurately they reproduced it
    - the car safety/escape from car one, because growing up my mother insisted on manually winding windows because she thought they were safer than electric (if you drive into a lake, you can wind the window down manually), which I always thought was BS but never managed to convince her
    - the elephant/mice one, because of how ridiculously surprising the result was
    - the "Dead body in a car" one, because it was just amusing
    - the chicken cannon one, because it's classic early mythbusters

    Besides the shark episode, I liked the one where they proved you couldn't blow up a tank of propane by shooting it. I also liked the one where they used dynamite to see if they could clean out the inside of a cement mixer if the cement dried inside the big mixing tank.
