Watch the Entire ‘Breaking Bad’ Themed Episode of ‘MythBusters’

Mythbusters - Breaking Bad

The Internet is still all abuzz following the final season premiere of “Breaking Bad” (especially with this little Star Trek reference viral video going around) and fans can keep their excitement up until the next episode this weekend with a little bit of nerdy fun from The Discovery Channel.

Plenty of people know “MythBusters,” the science-infused series led by special effects experts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, as they’ve proven and struck down a plethora of claims, theories, and misconceptions surrounding various myths involving science in the real world. Their show is at its best when it involves explosions, and there are usually plenty of those.

Every now and then, the MythBusters have a themed episode where they take inspiration from movies and TV to see if some of the science fiction, physics, and more shown on the big and small screen is actually viable by way of real science. They’ve covered myths from films like Pirates of the Caribbean, Mission: Impossible and The Bourne Supremacy, and even dedicated a whole episode to The Green Hornet.

Mythbusters - Vince Gilligan and Aaron Paul

Now Adam and Jamie, along with their fellow MythBusters Kari, Tory, and Grant, are joined by Vince Gilligan and Aaron Paul – the respective creator and star of the aforementioned acclaimed AMC drama series – to bust some myths that have cropped up over the show’s seasons. The experiments conducted aimed to figure out if hydrofluoric acid really could dissolve through a bathtub and the floor below and also whether mercury fulminate could be used as an “impact explosive” to destroy an entire room.

Are these myths true? You’ll have to watch the full episode (via Uproxx), which delivers explosions, to find out:
